Today's my best friend's birthday!!! Here are a few of the things I made for her:


This fancy pink clutch/wristlet/purse thing.


...with a crocheted rose on the back.  The rose was made with DMC embroidery floss, the bag with Caron Simply soft.


Close-up of the rose.


A sleeve for her iBook!  Made with Lion brand thick 'n quick, for added computer cushioning.  The purple stripes were made from some furry yarn I picked up at a thrift store.

And finally...

An ear of blue/Indian corn!! Cheesy This probably seems like the most random gift ever, but she and I have had a long-running inside joke about giving each other corn.  She specifically asked for this!


I was going to stuff it with beans but my fabulous roommate had the brilliant idea of stuffing it with CORN KERNELS, thus giving it a new level of awesome.  I also made her a few iPod cosies and a beer cosy (in honor of it being her 21st).  Thank you for looking!!! Any comments are much appreciated.  Smiley

Oh man, the corn!  ha ha ha!  I would love to make that for my parents.  They live in the middle of a huge corn field.  Well, every other year, they switch from corn to soybeans every other year.  Where did you find the pattern for it?  Oh geeze, and stuffing it with corn.  Muah ha ha ha h!  Thats totally sweet.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Hah thanks!  I actually made up the corn pattern as I went... worked in the round basically as a tube with occasional increases, purple with the yellow bits done at random.  Then I stuffed it, tied on the green and made the stem to close it off, then increased again to make the husks.  It was pretty easy actually.  I'm pleased with how it came out!  Cheesy

Great gifts! And corn is almost always funny, whatever the reason.
