1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / GLORIOUS! Owl Tote Bag on: February 13, 2008 01:14:14 PM
So i bought a cheap $3 michaels tote bag a few months ago and made this bag.

im fairly happy with how it came out! it was kind of a rndom impulse bag that i just decided to do random stuff on

the one thing i want to change is the STRAPS they are KILLING ME theyre so short so if its really full then its hard to hold. but once i do that i think im pretty happy with it!

comments, questions, suggestions, criticisms, all appreciated!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Hush Sound TShirt! on: February 13, 2008 01:08:01 PM

the shirt!

i made it from a michaels shirt-i just hemmed the sleeves and neck horribly by hand because im lazy. i wish i had actually cared when i did them...
and what the actual color is.

the detail. i cheaply screenprinted (with gauzy fabric and an embroidery hoop) the tree and moon and star

my first crappy attempt at embroidery...

Anyways, the symbol and hush are from THE HUSH SOUND!!! i love them you should go take a listen.
and i kind of just made up the tree and cloud inspired from their album cover.

questions, comments, criticisms, all welcome!

ugh its hard to get a picture of it.

the back is very similar, with the same deep v except it doesnt have the split hem i guess thats what i could call it?

yeah so i based it off of this cute teal shirt from forever 21 that i have and i just wung it...i winged it....i dont know how you would say that but im really happy with how it came out! its a bit big but whatever, i love the fabric it was on sale for like..$3 or something a yard at joanns a long time ago and i finally got some good use out of it!

comments/criticism greatly appreciated!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cable Crochet DVD Player Case: IMG CHUBBY on: February 13, 2008 12:54:38 PM
so on the plane ride to texas i was watching friends on my brand spanking new dvd player that i got for hannukah and was thinking HMMM isnt it a shame i have to carry such an awesome dvd player around in eithe rnothing or its lame cardboard case it came in?

SOOO as the crafty person i am i thought why not crochet a glorious case for it?!?!? and so i did.
this is my second project with crochet cables, the first being a hat which i would like to say THANKS MUCHO FOR THE TEACHINGS to a fantastic fellow craftster guru who posted a tutorial on her website... http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=5

anyways on to the showing...

side uno

side dos

the top ribbed section

QUESTION: should i add a zipper or leave it like a little dvd player sock and have it open?

compliments and criticisms are appreciated Smiley

the colors are off, its a generic gray and pretty blueish periwinkle
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bird's nest ring! on: February 13, 2008 09:10:11 AM
So i would like to have a disclaimer of not making up this idea. I've seen a multitude of these all over craftster including this lovely rendition by MandaBeads that can be found HERE- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208731.0

Anyways, i wasnt online when i made this, i kind of just saw wire at my house and made something up while watching family guy and this is what i got...not the best, and i want to redo it with actuall beads that look like eggs and maybe make it less, well, messy but anyways here it is...

(sorry for the huge factor)

im pretty happy with it. questions? comments? compliments? what-the-hell-was-she-thinking-s? go right ahead  Smiley

So my best friend and i were at this amazing store, atomic pop, and she saw thislittle cute knit guy, forget which company made it, but she just kept on saying how much she loved it and hannukah was a week away and i crocheted (i cant knit...) my own little version of it for her as gift!

Heres the final product:
(excuse the weird face, i obviously dont have it anymore and this is the only photo i could find of the little guy)

and a closeup of his bulging eye

his name is peebs and i love him!
