11  My new handmade medieval loom (a lot of pic) in Weaving: Completed Projects by D-Apostrophe on: March 17, 2010 02:00:22 PM
After long time of silence, I'm back with a new fantastic handmade object: an Handmade Medieval Loom.

It's a very simple loom, with no shuttle, but very easy to build and very funny to use.
here's the pictures show!

The loom

The first warp ( I started with more or less twenty lines, I guess that this loom can hold up to 50)

Detail of the cord heddle (whole Hand-knotted, and I think to add a lot of new cords)

First weaving test

Becoming confident

C&C are Welcome!

I did some paper stamps on cardboard, taken from puddin powder boxes.
I cut the shapes and then I used Liquid inks to print on fiber paper and rice fiber paper.

Here some results


sort of "MOON STAMP"


Hope You like it!

I'm going to use them as covers of some handbound books (I'm Totally IN  bookbinding)

15  second and third handbound books in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by D-Apostrophe on: October 14, 2008 04:00:52 PM
Hi all Craftsters!

here I proudly show you my first attempt in binding a single-signature book.. it was quite simple, but soooo long for a newbie!

let's see the pictures.

note the magnificent texture made by me with china ink months ago for the cover.

and take a look inside:

here we have again a Chinese binding book... I did the cover with  light cardboard and I glued some stained tissue paper, sandwiching a little copper wire spiral.
hope you like it. it is very small! 7X14 cm

can you see the spiral?

closer and closer, a little detail.

Comments are welcome!

17  I did a "sewing class" (IMAGE HEAVY) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by D-Apostrophe on: August 14, 2008 06:55:38 AM
Hi all Craftsters!

I recently ended up a little summer job in Bergamo, near my little town.
I was asked to do a 9-hours activity planning for some little guys and so I decided to do , after trying with Origami, Paper workshops and other strange things, to bring my sewing machine and let those guys try to do a sort of "pimp my T-Shirt".
I didn't want they to do a MARVELLOUS work, my only Objective was to let them try and live the xperience of sewing, in a sort of "zen" way where not only the final product is importand but the way you get\do it is important too.

sooooooooo there some pictures of this experience.

(I'm the beared one!  Roll Eyes)

some works:

My Funky shirt!


those guys are all 12 and they have enjoyed this workshop a lot!

19  I made a "stealth" flower in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by D-Apostrophe on: February 15, 2008 01:05:22 PM
I made this strange "stealth" invisible flower with plastic glasses cut to form petals and then I crocheted the center.

I'm wondering to use it with some variations... but I have to find thin plastic glasses!!!

hope you can find it interesting for explores other "crafty roads"

20  Second attempt in tatted bookmark making in Needlework: Completed Projects by D-Apostrophe on: February 15, 2008 12:05:47 PM
Hi all Craftsters!
This is my last tatted bookmark.
Again, here's the pattern:


In this case  I had to master Self closing mock rings and split rings. I Accepted the challenge and now Here I am as Winner!

It wasn't so easy to learn split rings and SCMR, (and also read the textual patterns adapted to those new techniques) and so I've worked for such 4 hours for this 16 cm bookmark.
Stop verbose mode... let's see the pictures!!!

here th whole bookmark

and a little bit of it.

hope you like it!
