1  Flowery headbands (Very Pic Obese) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Liberry Booked on: May 05, 2010 12:50:07 AM
I for some ridiculous reason bought a pack of 30 plain headbands and set myself the goal of decorating all of them along with some of the huge packet of plain hairclips that I bought too. As well as take pictures of all of them. And all over the course of the one week of break I had from college. So needless to say over the course of spring break, my house (my room in particular) looked more like a sweatshop than anything else. Well a one person sweatshop that is xD.

But I'm proud to say that I did in fact get all 30 headbands done and mostly photographed, and got some clips done too! And now I'm here to show off all they're prettiness! xD Just looking through all of these pictures makes me happy. Definitely worth poking 1/2 of my fingers with a needle, and almost burning the other 1/2 I think Smiley.

So they're all my babies, and I have a hard time picking a favorite, so I'm gonna warn you in advance that this post is going to be very pic obese.

If I was forced to pick a favorite I'd probably say this one (shush don't tell the other headbands xD), The poof headbands were probably some of the most painful ones to make, and definitely took the longest, but I love how they all came out.

This is one of the clips I made Smiley. I love the colors. To be honest xD I didn't even pick them out myself. I intended to, but my dad drove me to the fabric store, and he loves colors so asked me if he could help xD so I couldn't say no. I'm glad I did though Smiley He has very good taste I think.

My photography skills kind of failed on this one (a perfectly white background somehow turned sky blue), and I can't even blame it on the camera because I was using my dad's brand new DSLR (which was a dream to take pictures with by the way), but I love how the red beads on this one reflect in the sunlight.

This one reminds me of maybe a lavender peppermint candy with all of its stripeyness. It makes me smile but I'm not sure why. I guess I just like color.

This is the only one that I made in a spiralling style. Well actually that's not true. I made a really cute clip that matched but came out messy because I made it first and was experimenting so I decided to just keep it, but it fell out of my bag when I was out shopping Sad

And here are a couple shots of my awesome friends who agreed to model them for me and who I think did a pretty good job at it Cheesy

Another one of my poof headbands, but this one is a bit bigger and brighter. All these pics were taken in my super green backyard back home.

I like this one, it looks so sweet in this picture.

And to round things off Ill put in a group photo Smiley

Hope you enjoyed! (Haha I love how my descriptions for each pic get shorter as you get further and further down the post xD)

2  Re: Fiber Friday - March 5,2010 in Spinning: Completed Projects by Liberry Booked on: March 05, 2010 03:05:31 PM
I definitely love the subtle pop the blue bamboo gives to the yarn Smiley.

I just got a spindle last week and have been spinning nonstop since then.
My first yarn was just undyed wool that came with my kit. 2.2 ounces, 30 yards and very very uneven.

Then I went and bought some gorgeous merino roving from our local LYS, and as soon as I got home I had to start spinning again. I spun up all of the two ounces of orange roving I bought, and it ended up coming out a little less uneven than the first time around Smiley. As soon as my cousin saw it, she claimed it, and I think I'm going to make her a shortish drop stitch scarf out of it. Its 60 yards so I hope that's enough.

And an extra shot of it still on the drop spindle because I love how this photo looks and you can see how the merino's a little shiny.

And then my third adventure with spinning. I had two ounces of a gorgeous teal, an ounce of raspberry, and an ounce of white and I wanted to have enough spun yarn of one color so i could make myself a hat so i decided i was going to spin it all together alternating colors. So I ended up getting tons of practice with joining. And then I realized when you spin two different colors together you get a swirly striping effect so I had fun playing with that. So I spun around 3-3.5 ounces of this, and it ended up being about 140 yards.

And a picture of all of it on the drop spindle. ( I had to spin it supporting it on the ground or my desk by the end because all the weight from the yarn was breaking the yarn otherwise.)

And a shot of it being wrapped so you can better see the colors and the swirling.

I'm sorry, I know this is a ridiculous number of pictures, but I'm really proud of my first yarns. So one last picture of them all together, because I love how you can see the improvement between the first one and my second ones, and then no more pictures xD.

3  Re: The Banner / Logo critique thread! in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by Liberry Booked on: February 18, 2010 02:16:33 PM
Melvinator I love your banner! It really draws my attention.

This are my prototype banners for my shop. Its going to be a variety of different items, mostly headbands with flowers and feathers, but also different kinds of stenciled items as well. The heart is one of my stencils that I just finished sketching out. All of the profits from whatever I sell are going to go to a charity (not sure which one yet), but that's kind of what I based my name off of. Well, that and the fact that what I sell will be more whimsical than anything else. If anyone has any suggestions for either the banner or my name, I'd be highly appreciative. And I'm not sure what to make my avatar as.

4  French Message Boards in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Liberry Booked on: February 11, 2010 11:27:08 AM
I bought a set of two canvas boards and made a message board for my room in some of the colors from my sheets, and one for a best friend's birthday gift in her room's colors.

I don't have any good ones of all of mine, but this is an action shot.

This one is hers. I actually ran out of ribbon on hers, and was going to go back and buy some later, but before I had the chance, she saw it and wouldn't let me keep it long enough to fix it. But she says she likes it this way anyway, so I guess its all good.  Smiley

5  Food Magnets :) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Liberry Booked on: February 11, 2010 11:09:40 AM
We got a new fridge and it was so plain that it was bugging me. So I decided to dress it up with some magnets Cheesy.

I particularly loved how the chocolate one came out. My dad wanted to eat it  Grin

7  Stencilled the tree spirits from Princess Mononoke in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Liberry Booked on: July 15, 2009 08:32:04 PM
I used the freezer paper method for this one and it went really quickly. My dad had been asking for a shirt like this for a while, but it was a little troublesome because I couldn't find any stencils online. So I went and made one for myself. If anyone wants it I can upload it or something. But yeah, so this is how it ended up coming out Smiley.

And a close up Smiley

Sooo...what do you think?

8  Some Harry Potter Shirts (Jersey Style) [Very Pic Heavy] in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Liberry Booked on: July 15, 2009 08:31:06 PM
I stenciled a few different shirts for me, my sister, and a few of her friends to wear to the midnight show Smiley For the words on the bottom I used freezer paper because I was only going to use them once each, but for the crest on the front and the 6 on the back I used transparency paper and after cutting whatever I needed out, I sprayed the back in an adhesive spray. I used just ordinary acrylic paint mixed with fabric medium on it.

Back of mine. Part of the front stencil leaked onto the back because I didn't place the paper between the two layers of fabric close enough to the edge. But I still really like how it came out Smiley

Front of mine.

Front of my sisters.

Close up of the crest.

Back of my sisters.

Back of one of the other shirts. Didn't get a chance to take pictures of the other two Sad

9  Re: Knitty's Danica in Knitalongs by Liberry Booked on: November 08, 2008 03:25:37 PM
I've started the danica scarf too. All of the scarves on this knitalong were wonderful inspiration to teach myself how to knit. And now my first official project is going to be this scarf. This is how far along I am so far.

And a macro picture of the scarf just for fun.

I think it looks mostly like everyone else's but if anyone sees that I'm making any kind of mistakes, or has any suggestions that would be wonderful. Smiley

10  Blue Coral in Crochet: Completed Projects by Liberry Booked on: November 08, 2008 03:21:33 PM
I actually made this a while ago, but it was a lot of fun and a pretty quick project. Its simple too.

I got the idea and pattern from another post on craftster (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=251185.0)

But now my issue is I have no idea what to do with it. Any suggestions?
