1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dolls rock!!! Even my first one :) on: June 26, 2006 07:12:47 AM
Here is my first doll and my first crochet project. I used the cheapest Red Heart acrylic yarn. The doll is washable and child friendly, I did not put any beads or buttons, so there is nothing to take off and swallow. It was a gift for my newborn niece (the second picture).

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Patrizia Pepe skirt on: April 26, 2006 01:31:08 PM
Just wanted to share a crochet-along results from a Russian forum. Here is the original skirt by Patrizia Pepe whoever she is. It was in a magazine.

Here are skirts made by girls from the forum:

Isn't it cool? Those girls are very talented. They inspired me to make this skirt, too.

3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / needle felting machine on: April 14, 2006 01:36:50 PM
I would like to purchase a needle felting machine, but not sure where to look for it and how to choose a good one...

Any experience ladies?
4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / What kind of technique is this? on: April 05, 2006 08:19:03 AM
Here is a handbag. I am trying to figure out how to make it. I have a feeling it has to do with felting. How is it not falling apart? I just tried wet felting myself, but I do not think it is wet felting... Any ideas?

5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / wet felting - first try! Check it out! on: April 05, 2006 07:38:37 AM

The thick white yarn did not stick well because I did not realize it had acrylic in it, so I am going to pull it out, put 100% merino yarn and refelt that part. I thought it came out not bad for the first try...  Wink
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / housewarming party invitations - made myself! on: December 29, 2005 01:35:12 PM

I applied metallic paint on the paper and did a drawing of a little house. Do you think it is not too embarrassing to send invitations like this to people?

That's how my husband calls it.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What yarn would you use for this sweater? on: June 15, 2005 01:15:37 PM

The itstruction says - Karabella Wool Rope, it is REALLY thick - 1 stitch in 1 inch and #35 needles. I went to a store near me, and they said, that this line (Wool Rope) was discontinued. I could not find anything similar on the web.

Any ideas? I want this sweater!!!!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Snail Shell Beach Purse from Frugal Knitting house with tutorial!!!! on: May 02, 2005 04:30:32 PM
I loved this purse, and decided to make it. I went a little further - lined it, put a little pocket inside, crocheted the lime green swirl and handle to match the lining. I also put a snap. You can not see the snap on the picture, because I did it after I took pictures.

So here is my version of Snail Shell Beach Purse from Frugal Knitting house:

Here is their original version with a pattern:

A couple recommendations, if you decide to make this purse:

1. Cast on really tight, and knit tight the first raw.
2. Loose it a little bit and bind off loose.

Otherwise the purse will not be flat like you see it on their picture. Instead of two circles ypu'll have two cones. I did not realize that first, and had to redo one coil.
