1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Little Nautie on: October 01, 2006 07:48:55 AM
My friend's birthday was a couple weeks ago, and I decided that I wanted to knit her Knitty's Nautie. However, not sure what she would do with a full-size Nautiloid, I made her a little Nautie.

(Although how a little nautiloid is any more useful than a large one is beyond me!)
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Duck Tape Mini Journals on: June 16, 2005 12:43:45 PM
Here's a bunch of mini duck (yes, I'm aware that one brand is duct, but this is a knockoff brand that makes duct tape in colors) tape journals. They're all the size of playing cards, with 48 pages each. The blue journal with the sailor button was made by my friend Two-Holed Button on Craftster.

And just curious, how much would you pay for one of them?

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hatmione! on: May 09, 2005 12:16:17 PM
Behold the Hatmione (unfortunately it's pronounced hat-my-oh-ni, not hat-my-own. Ah well, one can pretend.) Although I hate the Harry Potter movies, I did like the hat that Hermione wears in the winter. I was able to find the pattern online, as apparently I was not the only one who took a liking to it. The pattern was pretty easy to follow, but it was still interesting. It took me about four days, on and off, to knit it, and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

For the record, I am aware that I knitted a hat even though summer is just about here. But I got inspired to knit it, so I did. Unfortunately, I don't look good in it, therefore I don't have any pictures of it on. Use your imagination.

The front:

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Granny Fabric into Pleated Skirt (tulle optional) on: May 09, 2005 12:05:42 PM
What to do with Granny Fabric Pillowcases that are way to big for your pillows? Make them into a skirt. Or two. This skirt actually only took one pillowcase though. I was bored the other day, so I made up a pattern for this skirt.

On a duct tape dummy:

With tulle skirt underneath (sorry about the bluriness):

If you wanted to add the tulle to the actual skirt, it wouldn't be that hard.

Although this type of skirt isn't my favorite, it would look pretty nice over funky tights (striped, patterned, fishnet, etc.). Or with docs.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Nose warmer tutorial on: November 05, 2004 06:47:22 PM
Here's the tutorial for the crocheted nosewarmer that I've been promising! I based this pattern off the instructions on knitty, but I thought that it would be faster to crochet it than to knit it, so I converted it into a crocheting pattern. Here's the pattern it's based on: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTnosewarmer.html.

This is my first time ever trying to write a crochet pattern, so if anything's unclear, just ask me about it.

1) Ch 15
2) Sc into second ch
3) Work 5 rows (The amount of rows is flexible. It really just matters what shape you want your nosewarmer to be. 5 rows gave me a nice triangular shape.)
4) Fasten off and weave in ends

Then, fold your nose warmer in half. Holding it so that the fold is facing to the left (or right), sc along the top edge. Two sides of the square should now be attached. Turn it right side out.

1) Get a 4" wide piece of cardboard
2) Wrap yarn around about 6 times and cut excess yarn off
3) Carefully slide yarn off cardboard, maintaining the shape
4) Wrap a different piece of yarn tightly around the center, knotting securely. Leave at least a 4" tail on both sides
5) Cut open yarn loops, fluffing yarn out

1) Attached (slip stitch) to one outer corner of the nose warmer, ch enough to go halfway around your head, leaving room for a bow
2) Repeat step 1 on other side

1) With nosewarmer right side out, place tassle on nose point
2) Use a crochet hook to pull through the two longer pieces of yarn from the knot
3) Tie securely and weave in ends

Now you have a brand new nosewarmer. Wear it with pride!

One of these days, I think I'm going to try to make up a pattern for a super long and pointy nosewarmer, like they wore in Winnie the Pooh.
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Mini Wilderness "Survival" Kit in an Altoid Tin- *Now w/ working pics!* on: October 08, 2004 04:53:40 PM
I had to make a birthday present for my dad the other day, so I came up with the idea for this. My dad's big on hiking, so I figured that this was perfect.

This is the front

This is the inside.

The kit includes:
-2 Band-Aids
-Tootsie Roll
-Safety Pin
-3 Toothpicks
-Coffee Gum
-4 Advil

True, you couldn't really survive on this. But your nose sure would be warm!
