12  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES / Lifes a Beach...doll house! (picture heavy) on: April 01, 2008 02:22:05 PM
Its been far from springlike here.  So, I was inspired to build a beach house.

Shells $1
Large Popsicle Sticks $1
Small Popsicle Sticks $1
Paper Rafia $1
Fake Flower Petals $1
Green Beads $1
Red Chair $1
Foil Umbrella $1
Yarn $2
Total:  $10

The sand is soft and luxurious!  (knit out of beige novelty yarn that remind me of sand when knit up).

The ocean is calm and warm! (knit out of blue yarn in a ripple pattern).

The structure is sturdy and painted in calm colors (popsicle sticks and lots of hot glue).

And the wind is kept out by handwoven walls (paper rafia that I woven to make a fabric of sorts.)

Even shingles for further studiness! (fake flower petals)

A ramp to enter with pretty little sea shells.

Shaded benches to rest and relax.  Even a bench made out of gold! (small popsicle sticks and foil umbrellas)

And last but not least lovely rooms.  Including a telephone, decorative lamps in each corner, a nightstand, a soft cushy bed, a mat, and big red chair (Bed made out of popsicle sticks and the same yarn used the sand.  The lamps are beads and shells.  The mat is rafia.  Night stand and bed post from green beads.  The "phone" is a shell).

Comments, questions, and criticism welcome.

It might.  Though I'm not sure, I've never worked much stitch witchery.

It looks quite nice.  But one change I recommend is hemming the skirt.  Plain ol' cotton (if thats what the fabric is) will fray and unravel unless you take care of those edges.   Cheesy
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Raglan sweater (baby sized)...Finished on: February 18, 2008 05:39:41 PM
C'est fini!  This was a fun knit, I would definetly make another.  I modified the sleeves and added the little white woven detail.

I've never really had much success with raglan sweaters before.  It should be easy, but somehow I managed to mess it up.  And, I have just enough yarn for a raglan baby sweater.  I'm going to give it another try. I hope a picture from my computer counts for a date.  We don't get newspapers and I didn't buy anything today.

Pattern:  http://knittingpureandsimple.com/babycardi.html
Yarn:  Two skeins of TLC Cotton plus

A week or two I believe for the body.  I think I worked an hour or two every other night or so.  Then it sat on my shelf waiting to be finished for a couple weeks. Tongue
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Razor Lace Cami on: February 17, 2008 02:47:44 PM

Yarn:  Berocco Softwist. 
*I happen to like this yarn.  Yes, it is splitty.  But I don't mind splitty yarn.  The color is rich, and the sheen is gorgeous.  Though, it is very itchy against my bare skin. Which is no big deal, since this is far too lacy to wear alone.
Pattern:  Razor Lace Cami
Needles:  Size 5 on my denises, can't remember how long the cord was.

Its not really lopsided, the straps just need frequent adjusting.  I modified the straps.  I dislike spaghetti straps greatly, so I did a slightly thicker garter stitch strap instead. This was first attempt at lace, and as seen, I made mistakes.  First wearable too. Overall, a nice pattern with a nice result.

Comments, questions, and criticism welcomed.

I think I'll join in on this one! North Conway, NH... I'm probably the only person on all of Craftster who's from here lol

I'm in Maine!!!! <3

*waves from about an hour or so away*

Ooooh....the possibilities are ENDLESS!

I too am from Maine.

Except, I don't exactly live an hour away from New Hampshire, more like five hours away.

I really like this challenge.  Very versatile and applicable to any craft.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sheila the Snow Bear (Four Pictures) on: January 12, 2008 09:46:47 AM
In a kingdom far far away lived a cold bear named Sheila. (She's the one on the left).

She was crocheted...but the person who crocheted her made her no clothes.  On the dresser she sat, unable to play in the abundant snow.  And, she was poorly sewn together, and holding together all that well (my seaming skills have since improved).  After a bit of reseaming she was all new.   A few hours, a knit dress was produced(out of a bulky wool and acrylic blend and knit in the round)!

And, a matching pair of undies too (knit flat).

And they all lived happily everafter...

Pattern for the Bear:  Family Circle Easy Crochet Fall 2006, #24, Teddy Bear.
Pattern for dress and undies:  My own.  The yarn was just some scraps of wool-ease thick and quick, and recycled bulky yarn.

Comments, questions, and criticism welcome.
