101  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / bird drawings on: March 05, 2007 10:48:14 PM
Hey all,

Here's some daily drawings.  This week I did birds from John James Audubon paintings.  What do you think?

102  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Any one made a guitar strap before? on: March 03, 2007 08:05:02 PM
I want to make a fabric guitar strap and I think it's going to be pretty straight forward, but I was wondering if any of you have any tips. 

** Also, and most importantly, does anyone know if I can purchase the leather tabs that go on the ends, of should I try to cut them myself?

Thanks! Smiley
103  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 2 artist's books on: March 01, 2007 09:49:51 PM
I took a couple artist's books classes a few years ago and these two books are some of my favorite things I made.  These ones are pretty much all handmade - the butterflies from the first are originally from a calendar, but they have been significantly altered.

I have a description of each on my blog and a bunch of pics of them on my site, so here are just a couple details from them:

I'd love to know what you think!

**note to mods: I posted this same thing over in paper crafts and book making, but I think that maybe it fits better here.  I won't mind if you take the other one down.  Thanks!**

105  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scarf for my hubby. on: February 21, 2007 07:08:01 PM
I made my hubby a modified Danica scarf from Knitty.  I basically just made it 2x as wide as the pattern calls for and then I sewed the sides and ends closed so that you don't see the back of the enterlac.  You can see more pics on my blog.

106  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Any opinions about knitpicks Gloss? on: January 23, 2007 12:20:11 AM
I've never bought yarn online before, but funds are a bit too tight to go to the lys right now.  Anyone have any opinions on knitpicks Gloss?  I'm making some gloves and a hat for a guy and I want them to be soft and warm and kinda, you know, manly.  Do you think this would be a good choice?
107  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / looking for a "glitten" pattern on: January 17, 2007 01:06:17 AM
Hi gals and guys,

I really want to knit up a pair of glittens (you know, those fingerless gloves with the mitten pop top) for my husband and I'm looking for a good pattern.  I'm really hoping to find one where the mitten part looks well integrated into the design and not so much like your gloves are wearing little hats.  I would be so incredibly grateful to you if you could tell me of any such pattern, free or otherwise.

Thanks! Smiley
108  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first apron on: December 13, 2006 11:56:30 PM
I just finished this apron.  It's a Christmas present for either my sister or my sister-in-law.  I have enough fabric, so I think I'm going to make another one, so I can give one to each girl.

Anyways, I based it off this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129867.0 but made it with a halter top, changed the sides and left off the pockets.  This is the first time I've made something without a pattern.

The top is a bit big on me, but both girls are a bit bustier than I am, so I think it's ok.

*edited to fix a typo*
109  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Eeek! Save me! a.k.a. I made a boo boo and now I need your opinion. on: December 12, 2006 08:47:08 PM
So here's the deal.  I'm making my little bro (11) some jammy pants.  I bought a men's pattern, cuz I'm making some for other people too and decided that I could just alter it to fit a kid.  But I ended up making the legs too narrow Angry.  So here's my question, should I go with
Plan A: add side panels in the same fabric
Plan B: add side panels in a different fabric or
Plan C: I was hoping you could help me out with Plan C.

I basted on one panel of each fabric to help us out:

The pants:

Plan A with close up and a pic of me squeezed into them for comic effect to give you an idea of what they look like on a person. (And yes, I am wearing my husbands socks.)

Plan B:

So this isn't exactly a finished project, but I thought some of you might be interested.  If you go here: http://www.placidchaos.com/AM/index.php?title=andrew_loomis&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1
you can down load 6 really great, out of print books by Andrew Loomis about drawing.  I think that Figure Drawing For All It's Worth and Drawing The Heads and Hands are particularly helpful.
