51  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Raspberry, cabled sweater with puff-sleeves (a bit pic heavy) on: October 07, 2007 07:06:52 AM
Ooh, that's sooo cute! I would totally wear that. I love the buttons, and the way you did the front gives it a sort of vintage-y feel.

My goodness, this is amazing! What an adorable idea. I love the color and the little button...

Aww, very cute! Where is the button, though? I can't find it.

I like the lining, it's adorable. That fabric is darling.

Ahh, this tutorial is great! Unfortunately since the first image is gone I had to eyeball the sizes for the fabric, but it still came out okay-ish. Our school made us all buy t-shirts with our homecoming dance ticket and mine was WAY too big... so I made it into a bag. It's rather floppy, but seeing as I had never sewn a purse before and hadn't used a sewing machine for about four years, it came out pretty well.

I accidentally sewed the strap *into* the lining the first time, though, and had to cut it out and sew it back in the right way. Oops.

Really, really, really cute! I'm gonna have to figure out how to make bags like those cloth ones, so adorable!

The romance novel wallets are also quite delectable, though I don't know if I'd be brave enough to carry something that... sensual... around with me!

And I drank Horizon milk when I came home from school today. :3

This is really really beautiful! Everything about it is so... surreal. It's just... wow.
57  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: engagement dress on: September 12, 2007 07:57:00 PM
Wow, what a beautiful dress! The gold and the peach color go so well together. I love the way it falls at the front.

The second picture is beautiful as well... it sort of reveals a little about your personalities. That's the best type of picture. :3
58  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / College student "care packages" - university kids, help me out here! on: September 09, 2007 06:54:41 PM
I'm a senior in high school and, sadly for me, most of my friends have just left town and are starting their first year of college. There are a lot of miles between us now, so I'd like for them to know I'm still thinking of them! I was thinking of putting together little packages to send. Most of the girls are fairly easy, it's the guys I'm never sure about.

So anyone who is currently in college or went to university at any point: is there any stuff you wished you had and never seemed to have enough of? I'm thinking specifically of things I can craft. I'm all for sending jokey stuff like toilet paper and ramen, but I have to consider that postage is a little expensive to be sending stuff that they can pick up anywhere.

More specifically, I have:
(wow, lumping my friends into generic categories, yay)

Subjects A, B, and C: My gal pals from art class, shouldn't be too tough to shop for. They'd probably appreciate any cute, eclectic stuff, but if you've got any more specific ideas, go for it.

Subject D: My pal who lives in Connecticut (darn Yalies!) so knitted stuff would be an option, except she's not exactly the type I see in cute pink mittens. I wouldn't use the word "tomboy," but she's a little more practical than some. Our tastes in music are pretty much polar opposites, so I would have trouble burning a CD. She's into the classics/foreign languages/history like I am, but I have no idea how that translates to something craft-able. A couple of other friends fall into this category as well.

Subjects E, F, G... okay, pretty much all of my male friends: This category consists of your typical overachieving dudes (predominantly Asian, of course). These are the guys that I always just gave naughty cards and money on their birthday. As much as I love them, I have no idea how to shop for them, much less what kind of stuff they're going to need in college (besides sleep and sanity, looking at their schedules!).

Any ideas will be much appreciated!
