21  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Origami Room Accent! on: September 15, 2008 09:36:32 AM
I wasn't particularly in the mood for playing with fibers (usual for me) so I constructed this from Japanese origami paper.  All of the squares brightly colored and securely glued together.  The beads between them are leftover from when my mother was pregnant and basically bedridden, so she made bags of bead snowflakes.  And, she'll kill me for this, that makes them now vintage! 

A close up of some of the boxes:
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bright Wallet on: September 15, 2008 09:31:02 AM
This was one of the first knitted projects I made, but I never used it.  A while ago, I was tossing out an old pair of pj bottoms, so I used it as lining!  The wallet is divided into two large pockets, one of which has a smaller pocket the perfect size for credit cards (intentionally!). 

The wonderfully cheerful yarn and matching button:

And my brother, the fabulous model, demonstrating its many uses:

23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Froggie Purse (4 imgs) on: September 15, 2008 09:26:20 AM
This was made from an old pair of much loved jeans and some fabric that my brother(!) actually picked out.  It actually quite large, so you can carry a lot of things, probably even projects for the knitters/crocheters (keep stitch markers and extra hooks in the pockets!).  I didn't have a button I liked handy so rather than running out to get a new one, I ripped out the jeans button and sewed it to that back.  This was completely handsewn.  And when I can get my hands on a zipper, I'm considering making a matching change purse...

A closeup of the detail work:

Hopefully you can see what I did with the button...

I replaced the back pocket with some scraps too!

And the purse from a distance

Thanks for looking!
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know how to do this? on: August 28, 2008 06:05:48 PM
I've looked everywhere online, but I still can't find how to do this.  It's definitely knitted, not crocheted but I can't figure out how.  I'm pretty sure it's all one layer too, with minimal binding off or anything like that, but maybe I'm just looking for something really awesome when it's really very simple. :p  And I'm bound and determined to figure this out.  Any pattern, pictures, anything would be really helpful!
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Waffle Scarf on: August 24, 2008 01:26:36 PM
I was trying to come up with a pattern for a waffled scarf using some old baby yarn and this is the end product...  It tends to curl a bit around and it's not entire symetrical, but it's a fun, fast pattern that uses very little yarn.
