1  What to do with pokemon cards... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by superchloe on: May 11, 2008 01:09:46 PM
I'm working on a messenger bag, actually, all with clear packing tape because I'm a masochist. No, I just don't have contact paper so I've got good clear packing tape to work with.

In the mean time, I made some wallets. I've only got pictures of one of them, btu i think you get the gist of it. My old wallet(https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198711.msg2107772#msg2107772) was falling apart because I'm rather abusive to it, so I made a new one:

when folded, Charmander and Poliwag are visible. =]
Thanks for looking!

2  Photography: The clematis is attacking the mailbox again... [pic chunky] in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by superchloe on: May 11, 2008 12:30:41 PM
and killing a dogwood in the process. You know, on the clematis.org website they say that clematis are difficult to care for and hard to grow and there's this rigourous regime of fertilizers you have to use and switch every 6 months... we do nothing to care for ours and it grows beautifully. There are some other flower bushes around the house and I got shots of a few of those as well...
The entire album can be found here: Photobucket album
Here are a couple of my favourites:

I want to choose one for the macro challenge but I can't decide which photo to enter. None of them have been modified, and I think I'll just do a little colour/saturation touchups before I enter it once I decide.

3  so I thought it'd be a good idea to quadruple strand lion brand homespun... in Crochet: Completed Projects by superchloe on: March 21, 2008 01:10:49 PM
its really thick, and really really warm. and long.
I grabbed my P hook and went at it to make a scarf...
here it issssss, on my sister, who is about 5 feet tall.

sorry the picture is sideways =/
note that norelle is in the background XD there was an ANTM marathon we were watching all day. and our odd, one armed computer chair.

you wouldn't think that with holes this big...

that it would be warm. but its about an inch thick, so it is incredibly warm/ big air pockets to hold in warmth. (:

4  armwarmer andddd scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by superchloe on: March 20, 2008 11:17:32 PM
yes, armwarmer in the singular. I made it in what, seventh grade [I was what, 12 or 13]... I never did the other one. it was like SSS, only it was SAS. funnily enough, both are methods to proving congruency of a triangle.

so I had yarn leftover. it'd been stashed for a while and I was like hmm,. what to do with this yarn... so i found a lovely drop stitch pattern which worked up incredibly quickly (http://christine.typepad.com/photos/completed_projects_2006/drop_stitch_scarf_011106.html) and did it.
people say it looks like water.
more pictures will come when my internet decides to work like it should.

sorry its sideways. (and a sneak peek at my latest crocheted project!)
its not very long, but its still pretty warm.
stitchwork! the yarn is just som red heart in multi blue.

I also made a palindrome scarf, striped, which I've given away already but will post if it gets cold enough for my friend to wear it (:
oh, and a police line scarf back in december. I'll post that when I get pictures of it (:

5  Tote and Wallet from playing cards- finally ETA pictures! (IMG chunky) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by superchloe on: September 27, 2007 04:01:43 PM
So, I don't have any pictures yet. Sorry about that.
But! I was flipping through craftster one day, and found that someone had made a wallet from carebear playing cards. Upon seeing this, I attempted to make a wallet from regular playing cards. I came up with a wallet that was four cards wide with two pockets on either side and folded in half. Now this wallet was kind of big, and didn't fit in my pocket very well. I decided a trifold wallet would fit better, so I made one, but unfortunately these were normal sized cards so there was no space for pockets. I like the trifold better.

After making several trifold wallets, I decided to go a step further. Of course my friends had all seen my wallets and I'd given a couple to close friends, and one of them found an incomplete deck of red bicycle playing cards. I made a tote/purse. Of course I couldn't just make it plain and unfolding... so it collapses down. After sacrificing some cards to figure out how to fold the corner pieces, the bag took exactly 40 cards. Its three cards tall and four wide, and the strap is 8 cards long. Its big enough for me to carry my pencil case, calculator, a deck of cards or two, and my school agenda/passport/assignmentbook. I use it all the time. I go to the same school as stefferroo, who made the messenger bag of capri suns. We're really close friends (she introduced me to craftster) and I get asked all the time if I've seen her with her bag, lol!

Pictures will be coming soon, I promise!

Pictures have arrived! Sorry for the poor quality, but they were taken on my camera phone:

to show how big it is- just a teeeensy bit bigger than a playing card.

(the other side is just A, 2, 3, all diamonds)

dollar store cards, haha. I didn't do anything special to the inside.


all my crafty materials- clear packing tape, some cards, the wallet pictured above Smiley again, I didn't do anything special to the inside.

the aforementioned folding of the corner, which took a couple cards and forever to figure out how high to make the triangle-y part

the bag in all its glory. I don't know why the lighting was so yellow... I alternated. On the side you can see, its red spot card, black face card, etc. On the other side, its black spot card, red face card. checkerrrrs Smiley

any new feedback now that you can see it?
