1  haiku baby cardigan! sailor style. in Knitting: Completed Projects by sticky_fingers on: October 01, 2007 05:00:24 AM

I finished this a while ago... only getting round to posting it now Undecided. The recipient is my little neice. It's still way too big for her... but she'll grow into it. I used the haiku pattern from knitty and added this anchor patch I found at a thrift shop.

Hope you like.

OMG OMG!! I received this morning! I was totally blown away - onecraftybitch, you're so talented!

Here's everything together. Each parcel had a sticker with a feminist quote on it - sweet!

First I open the parcel containing this pretty apron. I love the colours you chose. Here's my boyfriend modeling it for me. Hehe. There were even recipe cards for yummy vegan recipes in the pocket! I will definitely making the tofu chocolate pie soon..... yum!

Next - this cute pouch with a bead design. It's going to be put to use as a home for my mooncup.

She also made me... A Frida Kahlo bag! I am so in LOVE this bag. Frida rules.

She sent this cool zine too. I havent had a chance to read it yet, but I can't wait.

There were also these sweet magnets: They spell out 'feminist'

Last but not least... this pillowcase with embroidery of a lovely curvy lady.

The embroidery is so neat and professional looking - here's a closeup

Thank you thank you thank you!! I love everything. You have put so much thought and work into everything... I'm touched.

3  dumpstered bookcase - how should I transform? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by sticky_fingers on: September 29, 2007 09:33:54 PM
Hi everyone!

I found this bookcase last night, about to be chucked out.

Structurally there's nothing wrong with it. It's very solid and stable. But it's in need of a little love. It's plain MDF and it has inkstains on the top.

So I was thinking about transforming it and giving it as a welcome home present for my older sister, brother in law and my baby niece, who are moving back to my city after living overseas for years (yay!). They wont be arriving with much furniture so it would be a practical gift too.

I was thinking about doing it for my little niece's nursery (you can never be too young for books, right?). I was thinking of painting it light blue or mint green. I'm not a fan of pink for girls, blue for boys, and neither is my sister, and I love light blue and green. And then maybe some kind of cute design in white? A leaf or bird motif would be pretty, I reckon.

I've never done anything like this. Do my ideas sound good? What kind of paint should I use? How would you go about designing and painting the leaf/bird patterns? I also dumpstered a clock that I could do as a kind of matching set, does this sound lame?
