31  Re: Under The Sea Swap in The Swap Gallery by Early Bird Special on: May 08, 2005 08:30:03 AM
I thought I would post a picture of the octopus I sent to Lauramae.  She private msgd me last week letting me know it arrived, and she didn't have her camera available.  I also sent her a cross-stitched bookmark with fish on it, but forgot to take a pic of that. 

Here's the octopus:

He's legs look longer in the pic than they look in real life, but overall I think he came out pretty cute for my first stuffed animal.

I decided to put a seaweed scarf on him because we all know it can get pretty cold and lonely at the bottom of the sea.

32  Vintage hobo bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Early Bird Special on: November 03, 2004 03:13:01 PM
So I decided to make a purse for my friend/co-worker Caroline's birthday tomorrow.  I just sketched a pattern and came up with the ebroidery design on my own.  I decided to use this fabulous funky vintage fabric I found on ebay combined with some vintage blue velvet I scored at a garage sale. I'm pleased with it & I think she will be too!

33  Ooh la la! Tres cute tote bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Early Bird Special on: October 09, 2004 06:01:22 AM
So here is a tote bag I made for my friend Barb and all of her crafty goodies.
She picked out the fabric & I thought it needed some glam, so I applied the sequins by hand & covered it in vinyl for extra protection.  I think she'll be pleased.

34  The BIG wool debate...formerly known as the purple purse post. in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Early Bird Special on: September 15, 2004 06:41:12 PM
Okay, so this post has just gotten pretty interesting.  After waiting a couple of days to see what was going on with the forum, I've returned to find a few interesting comments.  Come on hear the noise!   Undecided


Original post from me:

Hi, this is my first completed knitted project, that wasn't a scarf!  I haven't knitted anything in 2 years & decided to pick it up again.  I intended to refresh my skills by making a scarf, but decided the stitch pattern looked more like a purse than a scarf.  (K, P, K, P, K, K, K, K)

I think it turned out ok.  But the thing that I'm most disappointed in is not being able to do the blocking process, due to it being made of acrylic yarn.  I'm a vegan, so I choose not to buy yarn from an animal source.  Does anyone have any suggestions on other cruelty-free yarns?  I heard that cotton really only works well for socks and stuffed animals. 

Feedback on the purse and yarn alternatives please!   Wink
