1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinky Dink Octopus, Bacon, Moustache, and Cannibal Cupcakes (IMG HEAVY) on: April 05, 2010 06:02:11 PM
So instead of knitting at my weekly knit night, we decided to do Shrinky Dinks!  I had never done them before, so I drew out a few designs beforehand, and they are so much fun!  The best part is when they shrink - they curl up and get so tiny!  I used the opaque kind of plastic and colored them with Sharpies.  Here's what I made:

 - I put some in front of their original drawings to show the scale -

And my favorites I think are the cupcakes:

What do you think?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / These are dope! . . . I mean . . . hemp . . . on: May 29, 2007 07:53:35 AM
This is how I spend the summer - crafts of all kinds.  I have re-discovered the beauty of hemp (after visiting a hippie store and finding my stash of hemp from middle school).  I've decided instead of getting up and getting a job this summer, I am going to just do many, many crafts - hemp is definitely one of them.

These are both chokers made with 1mm hemp.  Yum.

And I'm terribly sorry if this picture doesn't work.   Huh
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock Bunny on: August 02, 2006 07:02:28 PM
This was made for a friend's birthday at the last minute. The one on the left is the original I based the red one off of. It looks crappy, but I guess you could say it has that ugly cuteness to it, doncha think?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Maroony Prom Goodness on: August 02, 2006 06:53:45 PM
Well, first off, this dress was modified from Simplicity's 5238. Someone *looks around* didn't read the sizes before everything was cut, and it ended up being too small around the waist, so my mom and I came up with the idea of doing a corset back on a separate top from bottom. I got a cool little eyelet/snap clamp thing to do the back, so it looks pretty darn professional looking. (Man, was I nervous doing that - trying not to mess up the entire back punching holes the night or two before prom.) I hope you like it. Comments, please!

Thanks for looking!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / It may just fly away . . . er . . . maybe not on: August 02, 2006 06:24:13 PM
This was made out of an old tshirt that wasn't getting enough wear. The appliques are just scraps of fabric.
Oh, and if you can't tell, it's a pink blob holding balloons . . . very random, I know.

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Pink and Black Coptic Bound Journal on: August 02, 2006 06:03:34 PM
I made this a while ago for a color swap. I think it's one of my favorites that I've made.

(Picture hosting is new to me, so bear with me if this doesn't work.)

7  UNITED STATES / Colorado / Pueblo Craft Night? (knitting/crocheting/sewing/etc.) on: July 14, 2006 07:26:14 AM
Does anyone here live in or very close to Pueblo? If so, I would love to have a craft night. Maybe at someone's house or the Daily Grind - someplace comfy! Please let me know if you would be interested!

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Have you heard of NONEY? on: June 18, 2006 01:25:40 PM
    This seriously interests me to the core of my Craftster soul! What a fantastic idea to get people to trade and barter!
    If you do not know what Noney is, please visit the Noney site: www.noney.net, or you can visit these sites (I just came across the one at SuperNaturale the other day and was very intrigued):

    What better way to circulate Noney than on Craftster - where the ultimate artists, sewers, knitters, hookers, etc. are found?! The People's Currency - that's what it's called. I just love it!
    Now, I do not have any Noney, but would be very interested in making/sending something to someone who does have some. Also, it would be so cool if we could do swaps on/off Craftster and do them for Noney.

I really hope you all will be as interested in this as I am!!!

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Vegetarian Swap . . . on: April 02, 2006 08:49:06 AM
Hey guys,

What about a vegetarian swap? I've seen that a couple have been done before. Any ideas?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Club at School! on: September 15, 2005 09:52:41 PM
I finally have started organizing it. During this past summer, I decided to create a Fiber Arts Club (FAC) at my high school. Each month or couple weeks or so, the club would donate at least one (knitted, crocheted, weaved, etc) item to a needy organization here in town or anywhere else in the world. Each week we would have a person (or me, or the sponsor) teach the group something new (knitting, crocheting, cross-stich, weaving, etc.). Others and I would make some new friends, and we and others around the world can benefit from us. The first meeting will be after school on Thursday, Oct. 6. Do y'all think I should make flyer, posters, etc? If so, what should they say? AND, I'm planning on going onto the announcements (on the tv, mind you, since i'm in key club and all (sorry for tooting my own horn)) and tell the student body about my ideas.
I would appreciate any input on these thoughts. Thanks in advance!
