the little buttons (which also come in red) are from spotlight- its a swoonerific suprise when you find cool stuff there!

How bad is this weather?Huh  For some reason, I also started crocheting a new piece (star afghan) on Monday and have been working on it each day since.  I panic every time I hear a noise that the air con is going to give out!!!

my house is so old, it doesn't have air conditioning.... its like the seventh ring of hell here Smiley

my local spotlight has it, just ask for freezer paper behind the counter- people use it for applique and quilting so you could just ask a service assistant who knows what they are doing Smiley
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crocheted scarflette and neck warmer *first crochet!* on: January 27, 2009 10:53:20 PM
I have no idea why i decided to start crocheting in the middle of the hottest Australian summer since 1908.- jeez right now i am sitting in my home sweating like a baked ham and thinking of jumping fully clothed into the shower!

here are my very first crochet projects completed in 42 degree heat (thats a whopping 107degrees farenheit people! i could bake a cake in this heat!) well enough complaining and onto the projects!

 soft 100%wool yarn, with beautiful wood buttons that will develope a nice patina with use

beautiful red 100% wool with carved and dyed shell buttons~ so pretty

both are free formed crochet, i just made it up as i went along, tried out new stitches, and had a blast
hope you like!

30  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: two masks made from leather. exciting!!!! on: January 21, 2009 12:20:07 AM
thank you everyone for your kindness- i love making them, its great fun

I love your masks.

I read the tutorial and love the idea.  I never realized that mask-making with leather would actually be that accessible.

Did you do anything different from the tutorial?  Any tips for those of us that want to try it?

Where did you purchase the leather?  I've looked at my normal haunts and didn't see it available.

the leather the girl uses in the tutorial is different from the stuff that I but, I just buy a hide of vegetable tanned leather in a thin thickness ( though there are some who work with thicker) and cut and shape that.
I also slightly tool my leather (like carve some veins for the leaves) before hand and then just shape it. a tutorial on youtube recommends wetting it in a water and pva mixture to make it harden a bit more, but I find no real difference between a mask with or without it.
My leather is bought from Lefflers in Melbourne- who stock a LOT of leather and leather tooling supplies. but i am sure you can get it from Tandy leather if your in the states, or go to a good saddlery and order it in if they don't stock it Smiley
