1  CD-cases (very, very pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Tallberggoesint on: April 07, 2008 01:32:13 AM
(I put this here because I figured - you use them for carrying stuff in them but pls move it mods if it is in the wrong category...)

I quite often give away "homemade" Cd's with music that i have heard that i want other people to hear also (all legally obtained of course ahem) but when you give things away you want them to be nicely packaged (word? but you know what i mean...) so i made these cdcases. They hold 4 Cd's and have pockets on the insides for storing lists of the name of the tracks etc.

I have done a couple in different materials and i think they turned out pretty darn cute.

This one is made out of linen and cotton fabrics. The image on the front is a phototransfer of a snail that i have taken.

I found the inside fabric at our local thrift shop for like nothing and i just love it!

That is my logo at the back - iiiiiiii!

This is vinyl with another of my photos (Glasgow uni - a beautiful building)

Inside fabric - again courtesy of my local thrift shop!

Thanks for looking!

2  Hommage to Andy Warhol in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Tallberggoesint on: April 06, 2008 01:36:31 AM
Me and DBF did these for a friends baby's first anniversary. The photo is manipulated in photoshop and then printed out on transfers. We ironed the transfers to some cotton fabric and stapled them to frames.

The gift was well recieved and now adorns their living room which makes me happy!

It does help that she is such a cutie!

3  Yellow purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tallberggoesint on: April 03, 2008 10:12:24 AM
Had this little bit of lovely yarn left over from another project and decided i wanted to use up all of it. So i just started crochetting a rectangle to See how much i had left. Had just bought some zippers from our local thrift shop and guess what - one of them fit the crocheted rectangle just beautifully. Yellow purse you were meant to be!

Then i embellished it with a resincoated picture of the baby of my cousin that i had stuck a crocheted flower at the back at and, hey presto, another babyrelated present for my cuz.   

I think it's springy.

5  First try with resin - presents for my cousin (img obese) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Tallberggoesint on: January 30, 2008 10:25:02 AM
After seeing all the wonderful things people on Crafster was doing with resin i wanted to try it too.

My cousin just resently had her first child and i have had this idea to make her jewellery with her and her son on it for her birthday for a while. My first thought was to maybe just laminate pictures or to use shrinky plastic but then it struck me - resin!

So this is what i did;

6  Irish hiking wristwarmers in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tallberggoesint on: January 30, 2008 10:05:31 AM
I always been a bit of a coward when it comes to trying new stuff and since I learned how to knit I basically just stuck to the basics - stocking stich and the occasional ribbing. But lately I have been feeling a little more adventurous and inspired by all the beautiful projects here on Crafster I realised that I wanted to try to knit cables and found these instructions for Irish hiking wristwarmers
And they were not only very easy to knit but i also got a chance to use a ball of yarn that i had bought last summer on a trip to Skye (went to a lovely yarn shop and picked up like 6 different kinds of yarn but only one ball each so can only do small projects (or go there again next summer and buy more - Skye was absolutely lovely....)). I made my wristwarmers shorter though so that i wouldn't run out of yarn.

7  Re: Show off your TREE, Mantle, Or other HOLIDAY decor! in Winter Holidays by Tallberggoesint on: December 19, 2007 12:21:38 AM
I decorated my minitree with creatures from the sea! I usually go away for Christmas so I don't do too much decorating but this year has been really bad. Finally I got my act together and did this. It is inspired by all the lovely people at Craftster who has been making these wonderful octupuses (yes according to my dictionary that is the plural form of octupus...) that I have been admiring. And the step from octupus to jellyfish really wasn't that far.

The octupus is really easy to make - round crochetted balls really - but I put the directions on how to do them on my blog if anyone is interested anyway.

Merry Christmas!

8  Bah humbug - christmas cards for the cynically inclined (NB: some bad language) in Winter Holidays by Tallberggoesint on: December 16, 2007 04:25:55 AM
Been lurking forever but just recently registered as a member so this is my first post other than commenting others. So bear with me if i do everything horribly wrong...

I have been making Christmas cards in honour of those around me that might not so easily take to the festive spirit. I don't know about you but I have a fair share of scrooges around me and I felt bad that they didn't have cards to go with it.

So I made these:
