1  skirt and srap into cute halter in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Elle the crafter teen on: July 04, 2008 07:57:19 AM
The greenish-brown jersey is leftover from a pair of pants I made for a friend.  The white floral is tightly woven, but slightly stretchy.  It's from a skirt that's from Talbot's, but I got it at the thrift store.  It was made without a pattern.  It was sort of raining when these pictures were taken, so please excuse the slight blurriness.

Note: pockets

Any comments or constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

3  My flannel camera bag (IMG ChUBBY) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Elle the crafter teen on: May 07, 2008 11:39:29 AM
This is a little camera case I made (for my camera!) right before I went on February vacation.  I had had one before, but the zipper proved to be a bit of a hastle, and it didn't have a wrist strap.

The whole thing:

The inside:

The button hole I made without the special button hole maker on the sewing machine!:

The button I snagged from my mom's button box.  Apparently it's antique, but I really liked it because it looks like toast to me.  (its plastic):

I made this freehand (no pattern, obviously) I made one bag out of the pattern fabric, and a slightly smaller one that I sewed inside.  And since the camera isn't completely covered, I can use the camera wrist strap instead of making another.  My camera, BTW, is the HP Photosmart M22.  I got it 3 years ago (give or take.)

4  Mr Green Scoodie (pic obese) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Elle the crafter teen on: May 04, 2008 10:19:53 AM
This is my first (and sadly, only) knitting project this year.  Its a scoodie from the book Speed Knitting.  Although the color doesn't show up really well, I really love it.  Its a light green super-chunky tweed.  1 hank was $21, but I ended up having to buy 2, so it was quite the expensive project.  No matter.  I love it.

Front, hood down:

Side, Hood up:

Back, Hood down:

My only complaint is that the hood is quite small. I have a big head and it barely covers my ears.  If I use this pattern again, I would probably increase instead of decreasing. 

But, I was happy because I don't know how to knit in the round and I was pleasantly surprised that the whole thing was knit flat.  Ooh- and it has pockets!!

Comments, questions welcome.

5  My first picture-post on Craftster. So exiting. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Elle the crafter teen on: January 23, 2008 12:44:11 PM
Wow. I'm so excited about joining this site.  But it is a drag getting pictures uploaded.  So these are most of the projects I've done up until this point in my life. (Most of them within this year) Sorry about the dirty carpet model on these. Next time, I'll vacuum.

I did this one in 4th grade, when I first learned how to knit, but it's still one of my favorites.

This is my cat, Olive, modeling my scarf. I have a picture of me wearing it, but she's a lot better looking.

A scarf I knit for my Creative Crafts class. I used the drop stitch (In think) for the longer and shorter sections.

Me wearing the scarf.  As I said, my cat is a lot better looking.

Michael's was having a $1 per skein sale when I was buying something else, but I found a really easy envelope purse pattern in a book I love. But I still do have some yarn left.  Anyone have any ideas for it?

Comments and suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks
