21  Re: One Tiny Bird Thing Round Two GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by LimeRiot on: February 02, 2016 06:01:20 PM
That raven is super cool!! I especially love the feet Smiley.

My turn! I received from Ludi today and it's magnificent! I'm blown away by the art that she can create with thread!

Here's a close-up so you can see just how many stitches and colors go into her work.

Thank you, Ludi!! I love my new birdy friend.

And thank you, blu, for organizing such a fun swap!!

22  Making my first dotee dolls was a HOOT! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: January 30, 2016 04:22:00 PM
I've seen dotee dolls around Craftster for years but have never made or collected my own, until recently!

I participated in a tiny bird swap and my partner, Ludi, had owls and dotees on her q'nnaire list so I figured it was a good chance to try my hand at the craft. These little hooters were the result!

I made them both out of linen fabric. I painted designs on them and then added embroidered details for extra texture. The wings are made of wool felt and were sewn to the body with buttons. Little beads were used for final embellishments!

I don't have a single inch of wall space available to start my own dotee collection but I can see why people get addicted to making them! They are really fun to put together.

I don't think I followed all of the "rules" for making these dolls but I think that's kinda the point - so I'm guessing I won't be ticketed by the dotee police anytime soon Smiley.

27  Passport Cover Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LimeRiot on: September 16, 2015 08:06:25 PM

Photo from: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124026275/

Would anyone be interested in doing a passport cover swap? This would be an easy one - just craft 1 cover based on your partner's wishes, no extras. They could be made from any technique - patchwork, felt, embroidered, leather work...whatever!

I'm thinking it could be run similar to the journal cover swap we did a while back...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438352.0.

28  When Pigs Fly Baby Shower in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by LimeRiot on: August 29, 2015 02:07:14 PM
My dear friend is having a baby in October!! As soon as I found out (months ago) I started planning her shower Smiley. She had always said that she NEVER wanted to have kids. We were all surprised to learn she was pregnant so I thought a "when pigs fly" theme would be perfect for the party!!

Here's a crop from the invitation...

I cut out a whole bunch of flying pigs and hung them around the house. I used lanterns and tissue pom poms to look like clouds.


Instead of playing games, we made crafts for the baby - headbands and baby blocks!

This is where we did presents. More flying pigs and a Mom banner!

I had a couple of gifts wrapped up that were passed around when the mom-to-be was opening her presents. One was passed 3 to the left whenever she opened something pink, the other was passed 2 to the right when she opened something related to bath time. Here's one of them being passed around.

It was a fun afternoon with good friends and happy wishes for the (almost) new Mom!!

29  Re: Newbie with a question! [how to design logo] in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by LimeRiot on: August 18, 2015 09:55:59 AM
Ohhh yeah! Skeins of yarn can easily turn into a big mess if they aren't wound. If you purchase from a yarn shop, they usually have a yarn swift to wind it into a ball. They can help you get the hang of using it too. It looks like this...

If you don't have access to a swift, try this technique... http://www.instructables.com/id/Hand-Wind-a-Ball-of-Yarn/.

Have you checked out the list of hat and headwear tutorials we have here? You might find something you like there!! Here's the list... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=412191.0

This is another resource you might want to check out...http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/weight.html. It's an overview of yarn weights - very important to help you figure out gauge and fit!

30  Driftwood Yarn Bombing (aka leg warmers for a tree) in Knitting: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: May 12, 2015 07:39:27 AM
We my hubby saw me making this he asked, "why are you making leg warmers for a tree??" Not the craziest thing that's been overheard in our house while I'm crafting Smiley.

My folks live on a beach where driftwood is plentiful. Whenever I'm there, I can't help but bring home a collection of craggy sea worn twigs!

This is one of the many branches of driftwood I picked up this past weekend. It looked like it needed a little sweater so I yarn bombed it!

I used neutral toned yarns that I associate with coastal colors. The yarns are all different weights but I used size 8 needles for all of them.

I knit each small gauge flat and then sewed it around the branch, using a mattress stitch to attach the two ends together. They are nice and snug so they shouldn't move or slip.

I think it kind of looks like an octopus. Can you see it?

This might be the most impractical thing I've ever made but once the idea was in my head, I couldn't shake it!!

As silly as it is, I kind of like it. I plan to take it to the office as a reminder of two of my favorite hobbies - knitting and beachcombing!!
