11  Little Green Man in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by veroni on: June 20, 2010 05:37:54 PM
I'm sure some of you know what a Little Green Man is for, but in case you don't it's generally a rule in a drinking game.
Basically, you must take a "Little Green Man" off of your beverage before you take a sip of your beverage; if you don't take him off, you must take another sip.

I personally always forgot to take off my little imaginary green man, so I made myself a Little Green Man.

He may look a little bit rough,but I like him that way. I'm not the best hand sewer.  Tongue
His arms bend, I made them out of a unusually long bread tie type thing that I just ran through his body. This makes it easy to hang from any beverage container.

He's always my companion when I'm drinking, and I never forget to take this little fella off when the Little Green Man rule is ongoing.

12  I made my own cousin in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by veroni on: July 25, 2009 08:56:31 PM
I absolutely love Katamari, and I wanted to make one of the cousins. Unfortunately I didn't have the colors I needed to make any of the ones I wanted to.
I made my own cousin!

I think I'll call him Gallant Cheesy

13  Apple Crisp in Dessert by veroni on: February 09, 2009 05:50:47 PM
I found this recipe in one of my mom's cookbooks which she got from my grandmother. My mom never made this dish, & I thought that it sounded rather simple and yummy so I thought that I would give it a shot.

Apple Crisp

4 cups sliced apples
cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
cup flour
1/3 cup soft butter

8 inch square pan

1. Preheat 350 degrees
2. Spread sliced apples in 8 inch square pan
3. Sprinkle with mixture of water, cinnamon, and salt.
4. Mix sugar, flour, and soft butter. Work until crumbly with pastry blender.
5. Spread mixture over apples.
6. Bake uncovered 40 minutes
7. Serve warm or cold

In the pan:

My attempt to get it out of the pan:

It was actually very good, and I'm very glad that I made the attempt to make it.  Grin

14  Massive Granny Square = Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by veroni on: December 20, 2008 10:02:08 AM
I had a lot of balls of yarn that I wanted to get rid of, and I thought a massive granny square blanket would be perfect. I didn't try to make it match or anything, I basically just stuck my hand in the bag/box of yarn and that was the color I would use.

I don't know how long it took to make... I know it was less than a month, but this was something I worked on while working on other crafts.. I can't seem to just stick to one project, I have to have about 3 different things going on, haha.

This is it in progress with Kokiri helping:

And completed:

The edge:

Yes, it doesn't cover my whole bed, but it's fun to cuddle with on the couch.
I love it =]

15  it... brokeded? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by veroni on: December 09, 2008 02:22:34 PM
So, my friend's blanket broke... and they've asked me to fix it. I'm not sure how to go abouts doing this.
I know how to crochet granny squares and such, and I could learn more if I need to.

here are some pictures of it's broken-ness:

and closer:

Basically it looks like it somehow got unraveled. I'm not very good at explaining =/

How should I go abouts doing this?
What would be easy to do also?

16  Re: Oreo Balls :) These are seriously delicious and so easy! in Dessert by veroni on: November 26, 2008 09:21:26 PM
I finished my oreo balls! It was a hassle getting the chocolate on them because my brother and friends kept trying to eat them without the chocolate on them, haha.

But, here's a picture:

they aren't on anything fancy, and they are a little bit messy.. but they're still jammin'.
I used white chocolate and milk chocolate to cover the oreo balls.

18  just a pillow in Crochet: Completed Projects by veroni on: October 24, 2008 11:54:11 AM
My friends birthday just kinda snuck up on me, so I decided that I would make a pillow for her.
It's quick, simple, and fun to do.

I already had the pillow made:

So I made some granny squares and covered it(it's a little wonky, but I like that):

19  Knifty Knitter blanket in Knitting: Completed Projects by veroni on: October 23, 2008 01:33:33 AM
So, I figured that even though I used a Knifty Knitter to make this that it would still be considered knitting.

Basically, my friend had knitted me a scarf and I made myself one... and I realized that I could just sew two of them together and begin making a blanket... sooo I did.

on my bed:

on the floor:

on the couch (which is where it's used):

It doesn't match, but I don't mind.
It's really warm and snuggly, and my roomates love to cover up with it.
What do you guys think about it?

Now that this one is done.. my mom wants me to make her one Tongue

20  Basically a Blue Bandana skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by veroni on: August 12, 2008 01:05:45 PM
I've just started to like wearing skirts, especially since I've moved to a hotter part of the state. So, I decided to make a new skirt.
Why bandanas? Because all my guy friends always wear bandanas, and I wanted to wear them too.. just not on my head.

Holding it up:

Just standing:

Attempting to spin:

This was pretty much me just winging it on the sewing. I used elastic for the waistband. I ended up using 6 bandanas, I don't know why I chose the number 6, I could've probably just made it with 5. It's really comfy, and rather light. I'm glad that I made this.
btw... all my guy friends think that it's pretty awesome. Tongue
