They came out great, really professional looking!  Have you found a use for the rest of them yet?   Smiley

Thanks! The rest of the cups are still in a box under my bed but I'll finally be using a few of them for making Christmas gifts this year, super excited to try my hand at etching again! Smiley
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Another niece, another blanket on: January 02, 2014 11:23:44 PM
My sister is expecting her third little girl in early February and Auntie always makes a blanket for the new arrival. Here's the latest baby blanket for Hailey Rose. Green with elephants on one side, pink with floral on the other, orange bias tape around the edges, orange embroidered 'Hailey'.

Thanks for looking Smiley

Cribbage is a card game, you use the board to keep score. Smiley

I wanted to find a green variegated yarn but couldn't find one to my liking so I changed yarn every 4 double stitches, it was a pain in the butt, but I think it was worth it Smiley

I made my boyfriend this cribbage board for Christmas. It's made from bird's eye maple, I sanded and laquered it then drilled the 245 holes with a hand drill. The alinement isn't perfect since I had to do the drilling free hand with a hand drill but I think it turned out pretty decent and the wood is gorgeous Smiley

Thanks for looking and comments! Smiley

I wanted to make one more thing for my boyfriend for Christmas but I couldn't think of what, but after awhile of roaming around on here I saw a Minecraft creeper plush and decided that was what I had been searching for. It's all crochet except the black face pieces are felt. And this project taught me a very important lesson: it's near impossible to stuff something that is meant to be square, so I should avoid it if possible, haha Smiley I think it turned out pretty decent though, I think the boyfriend will love it Smiley

Thanks for looking and comments! Smiley
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Four teddy bears for Christmas on: December 05, 2013 07:52:06 PM
These are my first amigurumi projects, four teddy bears. Two are for my nieces (ages 7 & 2) and two are for my boyfriend's little sisters (ages 4 & 3). I put each girl's first initial on the bottom of their bear's foot, but that was after the pictures were taken. I'm hoping having initials and different colors will keep the tots from fighting over them Smiley

Oh, I almost forgot! I used this pattern for the bears: http://lilleliis.com/product/tummy-teddy-pattern/

Thanks for looking and your comments/feedback! Smiley

These turned out great! Thanks for the link to the tutorial. Any idea how they wash/wear?

Thanks! They haven't been used yet but I did wash them. Etching makes a permanent mark from what I understand, so I'm assuming it'll last forever?

Hey all! My brother-in-law's birthday is in a couple weeks so I etched these pint glasses for him. He works as a logger and spends a lot of his free time hunting and fishing. I picked designs that match his interests, I wasn't exactly going for a PNW theme, but we live in Oregon and when I look at the glasses I just think "Pacific Northwest", so that's what I'm calling them, lol.

When the idea for these pint glasses came into my mind I was so excited! I'd never etched glass before so I was a bit nervous but I love trying new crafts/techniques. I used sticky backed vinyl, armour etch, and I cut the stencils out by hand with an x-acto knife. I loosely followed this tutorial: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2010/06/glass-etching.html

Elk, Salmon, Tree, Deer:

Thanks for looking! Any advice/suggestions for future projects is welcome, I bought 2 dozen pint glasses because it was cheaper per cup that way, so I have a lot of cups to try different stuff on!

Very cute!  You could always fold the square in half and make it into a cozy of some kind. Smiley

That's a great idea! Thanks!
