1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Zipper Flower Headband on: February 19, 2010 01:08:48 PM
That looks like something you could buy at Ubran Outfitters for $30, but yours is probably made much better! Very cute!

Those are really nice, they can definately go with anything! I really love that you've made your alert bracelet your own.  Grin

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Reusable, double-sided fleece swiffer sweeper pads on: February 16, 2009 02:10:12 PM
Leftover scraps of fleece + unemployment + greenmindedness = 15 reusable and double sided swiffer sweeper pads!

I had some leftover fleece from making kennel blankets for the animal shelter I volunteer at (I've gotta keep myself busy in between sending out millions of resumes and my unpaid internship), and I have limited funds (ahem, still being supported by my parents, lots of savings bonds for my student loan payments, and random ebay sellings. I've got a Bachelors degree, a publication in a medical journal, and a few years of research experiance at one of the best hospitals in the country. Grr. Anyway.)

Fleece always attracts dust and pet hair, and since my cat sheds like it's his job, and my NYC pre-war apt is majorly dusty, it's perfect. Making them was really simple. I just cut rectangles of fleece the size of the swiffer, sewed 1 inch straps on both sides, repeat 15 times, and save money and waste!


Nothing too fancy, but very functional!

Note the Quality Control Cat in the background on the right. He's kind of afraid of the Swiffer.

I can turn them inside out and use both sides. When I'm done with one, I put them in a plastic bag in my linen closet, and when they're all dirty, I wash them all together in the washing machine (with cold water and Seventh Generation non-oil based detergent of course. Smiley )

Works wonderfully!

My spiffed-up Swiffer.

This is a really easy project! A great way to use felt scraps, and you can probably make these out of old ratty fleece scarves, jackets, or pants. Yay for reducing, reusing and recycling! Grin

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cozy baby blanket and booties on: February 16, 2009 01:49:18 PM
I made these for a friend who is expecting. I simply can't follow patterns very well, so I did a simple granny square. It came out really nice. I made up the pattern for the booties myself. The yarn is so nice and cozy!

The quality control team (AKA my kitty Cosmo) inspecting the blanket.

Seal of approval was given by Quality Control Cat.

See how cozy it looks?

The booties, they look a little wonky, but they're just soft and hard to keep in shape.

What do you all think? Grin

They look so perfect! I can never get mine to look that good. And yes, I pretty much visit Bakerella's blog on a daily basis!

So cute! I agree, everyone needs kitchiness in their lives. I bet it smells amaaazing too. BTW, do you have a Corning Rex kitty? It looks like a kitty with curly fur in the background  Grin
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hope bracelet to cheer someone up on: February 03, 2009 05:25:19 PM
I made this bracelet for a friend of my mom's who was just diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Purple is the color of Relay for Life, the American Cancer Society walk-a-thon that I've been volunteering for for 5 years, and chaired one in NYC last April. It's pretty simple, but I think it'll cheer her up.

I love the asymmertical, vintage-y feel to your jewelry. It's fancy but not gaudy. My favorite is the one with the bird. Smiley

I loooove the colors in the wall hanging! Brown and turquoise go so well together. I love the frames as well. It's a great idea to make coasters out of ceramic tiles too.  Grin
