1  Lemme see your needle roll in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by madeupnorth on: December 28, 2009 03:00:26 PM
Made this knitting needle roll awhile back but just realized I never posted it. Based on my initial mis-reading of the SnB instructions - but I like mine even better! Wink Would make the high end of the slant go a little less high next time, as I don't actually knit anything with 14" needles or whatever those are.

Lovelovelove this printed fabric! It was some home dec remnant. Wish I could get more. I made a matching knitting bag too. Will have to post pics sometime. In real life it's a lovely gray/brown/purple color.

And here it is all rolled up. I meant to add a ribbon tie but never found a color I liked. Velvet would be nice...

2  Cogs in the Machine in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by madeupnorth on: December 28, 2009 01:35:25 PM
This gear shirt was a Christmas present for my little bro, an aspiring mechanical engineer who's about to graduate from college. I don't know if he knows anything about steampunk (the usual application of this design, I'd say), but he tinkers with enough stuff that it seemed to be his thing. For real. He had Mom's snowblower all ripped to pieces, trying to fix it. I changed the colors to cool bluish-grays and a bit of taupe.

Yay gears!

Also did a tee with a volt meter for Dad (way too square for the likes of Craftster). Did he NEED a volt meter shirt? I dunno. But when you find a design that randomly appropriate, sometimes you just gotta stitch it. Plus it's the whole "my daughter did this" thing. That's the theory I'm going with anyway.

3  Bicycling Bunny Baby Cardi in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by madeupnorth on: October 02, 2009 06:05:52 AM
Just a lil' (and I mean tiny and adorable) baby cardi for my mom's coworker, who's expecting a young'un. The bicycling bunny design (Urban Threads, yay!) is on the back; it snaps up the front. Super simple, but I think it's cute.

4  Simple jewel-toned checkbook cover for Mom in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by madeupnorth on: May 27, 2009 08:05:30 AM

Nice and simple checkbook cover for my mom's birthday. Nothing too fancy-schmancy - I debated about posting this, but figured what the heck. The fabrics are home decor remnants I picked up awhile back. Used iron-on interfacing on the wrong side of the outer fabric to give it some body. Traced around a plastic checkbook cover for the pattern. It ended up matching uncannily well with a knitted/felted cell phone cozy I made her a year or two ago.

5  first quilt, with bonus matching kitteh in Quilting: Completed Projects by madeupnorth on: March 30, 2009 10:11:29 AM
Just finished my first quilt ever. All fabric from Crafty Planet, where I took the class. Throw size, basic rail fence pattern. I did little black ties with embroidery floss between each square (too cheap to buy a Husqvarna/Viking walking foot for my machine, and too impatient to hand-quilt). It matches my living room. I love it.

7  Celtic tree of life wall hanging for botanist bff in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by madeupnorth on: March 09, 2009 02:43:15 PM
Made this for my best childhood friend. She's getting married in June, and just came back to the area for a short while, so there was an impromptu shower. My mom called to let me know Wednesday night, I did the embroidery Thursday and bought the fabric and such after work, drove up north on Friday, and put the whole thing together on Saturday morning before the party. She loves plants -- getting her PhD in plants, actually -- so it seemed appropriate.

Embroidery design from my good buddy Niamh of Urban Threads. Fabric from Crafty Planet. Branch from my mom's 80 acres in the northwoods of Wisconsin.

8  Skull print boxers in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by madeupnorth on: December 27, 2008 08:56:09 AM

Skull boxers for my guy for Christmas. Wasn't planning on making boxers, but saw this fabric at Crafty Planet and had to. Pattern = Butterick 6837, with a considerable amount of fabric taken off both the top and the bottom so they fit like boxers ought to. Hope he likes 'em ... I do!

9  Victorian beaded ornament in Beads: Completed Projects by madeupnorth on: December 21, 2008 07:01:33 PM

My boyfriend's siblings and their SOs are doing an ornament exchange for Christmas. This is the first I've done of this kind of beading, and I love the way it turned out!

I used this tutorial for inspiration: http://members.tripod.com/~Beadme/Ornament.htm. The finished netting ended up fitting a 2" diameter ornament, not 3" as the tute advised ... must have used different sized beads than she did.
