11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Travel Necklace thingy! on: November 12, 2010 02:56:57 PM
So I'm thinking this should go in this category because it is sort of a cross between a jewlery bag for travel and an individual necklace wallet sort of thing. (If its not let me know and i"ll move it!)
So story behind this:
My mom always takes necklaces when she travels. most places that have storage for necklaces in bags have a little compartment that you have to wind up the necklace or its rung in a circle. Well in her case it almost always ends up having at least one knot in it. So after a suggestion from my father (who helps with most knots) I couldn't find anything in any store. And only had a basic idea of how to keep necklaces seperate. I attempted this. let me know your thoughts, on to a picture:

So basically the black string below is being my model necklace.
So you string your necklace through the elastic and then loop the blue at the other end (it has velcor so you can adjust how big your necklaces are). I only did four seperate sections as I dont think she'll be taking more than that. To close it you then flip the top over the necklaces and fold and then use the thing that is at the bottom, just some elastic in a casing sort of a hair scrunchie type thing!!
Hope it makes sense:
12  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Cookie Monster! on: November 01, 2010 03:57:43 PM
I made this with blue fleece for my 15 month old son. He ended up falling asleep halfway through trick or treating. Oh well he was a cute little monster.
The costume was made by using one of his pajamas as a pattern, but then I realized I didn't buy the right size zipper so there was a slight change in plans!!

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / circular needle help! its twisted! on: October 26, 2010 02:22:45 PM
So I can knit on straight needles no problem, even learned to cable. But I need help with circular needles. I bought some and found a decently easy pattern to make a basic beanie. But I can't figure out how to connect it without it getting twisted. Do I need to do something to the needles when I take them out of the package so they don't twirl up on themselves? Or is there some special technique I don't know about. Any help because I'm determined to not let them go to waste. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2010 What is everyone planning to make for Christmas? on: August 02, 2010 07:12:59 AM
Well I have already started my list of christmas but maybe if other people see it I might actually make something from it instead of continue to add to it!
Husband-no idea doesn't particularly care for homemade
mom-scarf (might try to make a cable scarf)-done
     -travel necklace organizer
     -scarf orgnizer/hanger (have all items just need to make it)
dad-reusable produce bags from netting (cut just need to sew)

mil-no idea
fil-no idea
brother-no idea (last year I made him and his girlfriend matching aprons with some beer bread mix and got no response/thank you so not sure)
sister in law- she's 21, last year i made her apron/matching pot holders she said she liked them
kids: (i normally make most of what is in their sock and then one or two made things)
I have a 11 year old girl, 6 and 1 year old son (so most of these will be for all just different for their different personalities  
                    -slippers knit (these may take awhile i need to start NOW)
                    -tattoo soap (saw this on a website you take regular soap and the temporary tattoos and adhere the tattoo to the soap, thought it mgith be a fun sock gift)
                   -maybe some little stamps from erasers looks fun to make
                   -ispy bags small to take in the car or something directly made for what they like maybe with some polymer clay items to personalize it more
                   -for the 1 year old I want to make ABC or 123 bean bags-cut just need to sew

So that is the begining of the list. Let's see how much I get accomplished

I absolutely love it, i have someone instantly in mind who would adore it. Did you just wing it or base it off a pattern a tweak the pattern? LOVE the baby coin purse!

mine is one the "right side". But as usual i don't follow directions well, i didn't do the frosting on the donut until i finished crocheting all of the donut part.
