1  Felt bead happy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Nomsa on: February 28, 2009 09:00:50 AM
I finally finished knitting a pair of thrummed mittens this winter and had bits and pieces of wool roving left over. I had always wanted to make felt beads, so I used a tutorial on Knitty ( http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/FEATfeltedbeads.html ) and got to work. I made several of them in different colors and used them in different mediums. Here are just a few of the things I created. Let me know what you think!

This first one is a headband that I made by sewing together three of the balls and adding a grey freshwater pearl in the middle. I then sewed it to an elastic headband.

I then took these ones and sewed them to bobby pins. I pin my bangs back everyday so these are cute useful and can jazz up my work outfits. 

The last things I made were earrings. I added some floral beads to the top and bottom and kept them simple, fresh.

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

2  Loop D' Loops {Pic Obese} in Crochet: Completed Projects by Nomsa on: February 16, 2009 03:55:38 PM
I think everyone has that one ball of yarn (or twenty) that is lying in the stash with no future for whatever reason. Too thick, too thin, not enough yardage, no mate, etc. I think I found the perfect solution. I call these Loop D' Loops. They are so ridicously easy. All I did was grab a ball of yarn, a crochet hook, High School Musical 2 and I started chaining. Chain until your fingers go numb. Once you have this giant chain, find a nice boy's arms or a pair of table legs and wrap your yarn around it until you can't stand it any longer. Tie it in a pretty knot. Wrap your Loop D' Loop around your neck, stopping when your neck is cozy and you look hip. Ta Da!

Made with organic cotton that i got in Estes Park, Colorado

3  Blossoms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Nomsa on: February 16, 2009 01:56:31 PM
After much debate...I decided to post these topic in the jewelry/trinket board because I believe that these must be a trinket. If I am in the wrong area, please feel free to move it. Sweet, thanks.

So I made these this week. Basically I just cut out random circles of fabric, held them over a flame (dangerous!!) and burned the edges. I then arranged them in a cool order, sewed them together with some pretty beads, added felt to the back to cover the string and hot glued them to a bobby pin. All in all, pretty simple but I love how much they add to an outfit.

4  Pretty Little Stitch Markers {Pic Pudgy} in Knitting: Completed Projects by Nomsa on: February 09, 2009 07:40:23 PM
Well, I have been lurking around this site for years now, but I finally mustered up enough courage to post something on here. Before I go showing off my creations, I want to say thank you to everyone on Craftster because you continually provide me with inspiration and joy. Hopefully my future posts will do the same for you  Smiley

Over the summer I made some stitch markers because it was wayyy too hot to even think about knitting. After moving twice since then, I recently had the joy of opening up a box of safely wrapped goodies to find these pretty little things.

And just in case you aren't familiar with knitting accessories, these are stitch markers which are strategically placed throughout the knitting to tell us knitters what to do.

Thanks for looking and I hope you and yours have a wonderful day!
