oh my gosh...that is so cute!  I can see making tiny rugs for doll houses, throws, wall hangings...

Is there a tutorial for it or do you just use matchbox to to weave?

Love the matchbox weaving.  If there's a tutorial, I'd like to see it as well.

this is like a huge family to me...

Same here, Always. The whole time I've been away I've been wondering about what's been going on here.
And, just so you guys know, I've been fighting a summer cold. I wasn't abducted by aliens or anything half as interesting. Sad
I've been wracking my brain for ideas for Monster High customs because I was given nine for a birthday gift. Plus my sister bought me one to bribe me into customizing her Skelita doll.

It's not really a tutorial. But there is instruction on how to make a matchbox loom here. (http://tanglecrafts.wordpress.com/2010/11/29/handwoven-faux-postage/) And other places on the site have good tips on how to string and destring a loom, and how to finish off a complete piece.

Gotta love Pinterest!

Now I want to make a matchbox loom.  No, focus!  Must focus on projects I'm working on now...

My TV/Movie partner swap received, so I can post what I made for that swap...

A crocheted Sheldon, again from her Pinterest.  The pattern she had linked is here: http://www.amidorablecrochet.ca/2012/11/sheldon-pattern.html#.U54DOyiB5ZN  I didn't follow it exactly, I kinda turned it into complete rounds and winged it.  I also joined my rounds because I'm retentive and when I put eyes on a spiral crochet ami I can always tell they're not *quite* level...





Some shopping bags with freezer paper stencils of Mary Poppins.  I used this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0#axzz34k7PIwzO.  I've made a ton of these, and while I love the bag I have a really hard time getting them done... I don't know why I drag my feet on them so much!



An Up Hoop -  based on a pin she had on her Pinterest, and only my third stab at actual embroidery... it's legible, at least?  Cheesy  I've seen a lot of these around, and I might do it a little differently if I did it again, but I'm pretty proud of it!



A Stig Needlebook.  I used a picture I found online of a cartoon Stig to base the pattern on.  I tried it first with the "real" Stig outline and it just did not work.  I like this so much I'm going to make myself something Stig-y soon!



Movie Buttons, just a few little extras.  I love my button maker!



Alice in Wonderland peg people:



And something I apparently forgot to take a picture of when it was completely done, just picture it with an attached black fleece hat... a fake beard/hat!

Thanks for the link, SilverMoon.  It looks simple enough.  Now I just need to find the time.

My latest project.  I was asked to make a spool knitter that didn't look like a spool.  So, I got out my carving tools and went to work. 

Here's my version.



And here it is, in use.



It seems to work ok.  Stitches are nice and even.

smeddley, that's a lot of awesome stuff! The shopping bags are my favorite! <3

pinokeeo, that's an amazing piece of work. I'd never seen a spool knitter before.

The peg people are too cute!

Plus, i would not want a wonky-eyed Sheldon, either...good call on joining rounds...I am not a big fan of spiraling either, especially if there are stripes involved!

lol I still have a spool knitter from summer camp as a kid!!  I believe the knifty knitters were based on this idea!

I like your take on it, pinokeeo!  I would like one that had a bigger hole in the middle as the spool knits such a small cord!  But great way to make I-cord!!
