11  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / "Captured Garden" -eek! on: September 23, 2007 07:29:45 AM
I went to a carboot sale today and found, to my delight, this object...

now i'm hating it- there's this flakey glue that is holding the dome and the base together-
i HAVE to get into it- there's half a dead butterfly in there- ick!

I was thinking i'd love to put a funky dollshouse chair in there or something- maybe change it everyso often..
but with this gydafg glue i can't do anything
chipping it away is taking an age and i'm not sure it'll work completely...


12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Introducing Mr and Mrs Octi on: September 10, 2007 04:44:58 PM

13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monty Monkey on: September 10, 2007 11:38:16 AM
As a companion to my knitted tank https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195309.0 (a gift for my dad) i decided to make a lil Field Marshal Montgomery sock monkey.

My dad is a major tank nut so Monty is kinda a hero...
Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, KG, GCB, DSO, PC (17 November 1887 24 March 1976), often referred to as "Monty", was a British Army officer. He successfully commanded Allied forces at the Battle of El Alamein, a major turning point in World War II, and troops under his command were largely responsible for the expulsion of Axis forces from North Africa.

Lol hope i'm not the only history nerd who has done this  Tongue

14  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Shopping bag! on: September 10, 2007 06:57:33 AM

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bunny, Bunny Cool... on: September 10, 2007 06:39:30 AM
ok that's just sad now i've got Boney M in  my head  Tongue

here's a lil bun i made a few years ago and never got around to giving him a face. it's sometimes WAY too hard for me to decide what kind of expression to go with...
so i found this badge and speared his lil face (it's ok- they're don't feel a thing until they have a face  Wink

he was quite easy to do- basically 2 balls and freestyle ears/legs/paws.
16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / pop pieces... quite a few pics! on: September 10, 2007 06:32:20 AM
These pieces are not your typical pop artworks (like Warhol or Lichtenstein) but i think they're pop nonetheless... i'm kinda stuck on a whole Peter Blake childhood toy vibe Tongue
hope you like them..

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Freestyle Knitted Tank *now with pattern...ish* on: September 10, 2007 06:26:48 AM
Might not be what you expected Wink

i made this for my dad for his birthday (he's a bit of a tank nut)
just made the sides the right shape and made a total top/bottom bit to go all around.

18  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / PE (gym) bags on: September 04, 2007 10:07:44 AM
i made these for some little girls my friend babysits for..

it might be hard to see but they are 5 subtle colours- wasn't sure what the school rule still is so i went with the baby blues/pinks/yellows and purples
no word back on whether they like them or not  Smiley
19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stormtrooper cushion... on: September 01, 2007 11:33:01 AM
not sure if this should be in homewears... or here- but i'll pop it here as it's not really a cushion- it's more of a stuffed toy type thing Tongue
well here he is...
mr stormtrooper head.

just took a basic outline from a 1984 star wars mask
and hey presto.. my first piece of needlework thats been finished  Wink
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / drum sticks? on: August 30, 2007 03:16:07 PM
weird question... but has anyone tried knitting super super uber chunky with drumsticks? or is the general idea that they're not.... pointy enough?   Grin
