1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Presenting Paige the Pretty Poppet on: August 23, 2009 03:04:37 PM
I finally finished an outfit for Paige, so I can introduce her properly now. She's my second poppet and this time around I tried the latch hook crocheted wig method for her hair. It works, but I think I'm going to stick to wefts for my poppets. I like having a little more control and a part line and stuff. She might still get more hair added at some point. I still have a bunch of that yarn. Anyway, without further ado, here she is. Hope you like her.




Doesn't she have the sweetest face? The only thing I'd change is that next time I'm going to put wire in the ears to make them poseable. Smiley


Here she's relaxing after her photo shoot. She was tired, even though it wasn't a very long shoot.


Gimp (the photo editor I used) turned her black and white as I was exiting this picture. I caught a glimpse and decided to go back and do it on purpose.

I did mess up her skirt a little bit - this is just the easy peasy dress pattern that comes with the poppet pattern now (thanks Ghilie!), but I did two layers of skirt. And this fabric was kind of fiddly and wanted to gather itself. So the bottom skirt layer looks kind of like bloomers, but I'm ok with that.

Let me know what you think!
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Emily the Skunk on: August 09, 2009 03:40:20 PM
I bought this pattern a while ago from Owlishly on Etsy and finally finally finally got around to making her. I'm so excited and happy with how she turned out, that I thought I would share with everyone!

Here's Emily the Skunk. I was really not so surprised when she told me her name as I was finishing her b/c it seems everyone I've met this summer has been named Emily. Her mouth is kind of hard to see - she has kind of pale lips.







3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My Hurry-up Spring Armwarmers on: May 06, 2009 11:28:24 AM
I finished these a little while ago. I leave them near my computer because my hands often get cold when I am on there for a long time. I actually have three of these b/c I didn't understand the reverse the pattern bit at first. Sad But it's all good now. Well mostly all good - the pattern on the right one is supposed to be on the left and vice versa, but I didn't think that would matter too terribly much. I did these as a knitalong with a local friend and her's are really nice too. She helped me with reversing the pattern. Well, she helped once I found the post on here about how to do it - she's got a scanner. Smiley




4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sidney - my first poppet on: March 23, 2009 05:43:57 PM
I finished my first, but definitely not my last poppet. Her name is Sidney and she was super-duper fun to make. I already posted her in the Poppet Along thread, but thought I'd give her the spotlight over here as well. Smiley

I've made amigurumi before, but otherwise this is my first stuffed creation. She was a blast. The pattern is so super easy - thanks a bunch to Ghilie for sharing with so very many people. Awesomeness!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My embroidered purse on: January 23, 2009 09:23:31 AM
I made this a while ago and I've been using it. I recently realized that I never took pictures of the finished product, so I threw it in the wash and then took some pics.

Lessons learned:
Pockets are always worth the extra effort. More is always better.
Fray check or serged edges are a must.
Light colors are not so great.
There is such a thing as too much embroidery.



6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Another Go-Go Garter first finished project. on: March 10, 2008 06:33:17 AM
I finished this and wove in the ends yesterday. Just in time for my dad's birthday. I made it with 15 stitches instead of 10, but I wish I'd have stuck to the 10. I was knitting really really tightly at first, so I thought it wasn't going to be wide enough with 10. I figured it out a bit more towards the end. Unfortunately, I did find out that I knit the whole thing with twisted knit garter stitch. Oops!

(Not sure why the first img link didn't work unless it's because I don't have enough posts yet.)

Anyway, I've been crocheting for a year now and my friend decided it was time I learn to knit as well, so she got me the Stitch 'N Bitch book for my birthday. I am having a great time figuring everything out! There's a few projects I can't wait to make, so I'll be on here more.
7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / fuzzy bunny slipper sizing on: April 26, 2007 08:08:13 AM
I'm making the fuzzy bunny slippers and have relatively small feet (US 6.5). I was wondering if anyone else who made these could offer some advice on which sole to use to help me figure out how to size them and then how big I should make the other sole based off of that? Or should I just follow the pattern and see how it goes? It wouldn't be too horrible if they were somewhat too big since they're slippers and all...

Thanks in advance for any advice!
