1  Re: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Part II GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by saylo on: July 13, 2011 12:00:51 PM
I got the package from Indie Child last week. I'm sorry I haven't posted pictures before.

She made me a Slytherin hat and a scarf:

A pet bat (since the customs don't allow owls into Europe...)

And sweets! Cockroach clusters and licorice wands. Smiley

Thank you so much, I've really been spoiled! I'll have to wait until next week or so to see the film though, since I still have a bad cold and a fever. I hope you got the package in time for the film, I went to the post office as soon as I was well enough to stand up...

I got my package from misskohaku last week, but I have been working late (which means I'm really tired when I get home, and the lighting is bad..)
I had a day off today, so I finally got some photos of the great stuff she sent me. Cheesy

Here is everything together:

The fabric in the background is 'something local', she is from Hawaii, and she got me a lovely blue Hawaiian fabric. See, they are not all full of a whole bunch of different colours. They can match themselves. Cheesy

Something green:

The bag is reusable, also it is reversible and made from two really nice green fabrics. I can't decide on which side I want out, so I'll probably alternate all the time. Smiley

Something bumpy:

She also made me buttons. I have handmade buttons! I don't know what happened with the picture of the matching button which is black with red bumps.

Something tiny:

Misskohaku made me a truly adorable pin cushion. I might have to hide it when my baby cousins come visit, or they might try and eat it. It looks great!

Senders choice:

Glass beads. A girl can never have too many glass beads, am I right?! Wink

Thank you so much misskohaku! I love everything! I can't believe you are a first time swapper. Whomever gets to swap with you in the future is lucky! Cheesy

Morrigan_le_faye made me a great looking crocheted headband, which keeps my ears warm and my hair out of my face. Smiley She also knitted a shrug. It is super comfortable, and fits perfectly!
(But, I think it is hard to get good pictures of myself... Maybe my arms are too short, or don't bend the right way... Tongue)

This is the closest thing to a group photo you'll get, I don't want to take off the headband and the shrug. Tongue

She sent me Swiss chocolates, handmade soap, a honey lotion bar, a crocheted soap saver/scrubbie, a candle holder with a really cute crochet cover (it is light blue and filled with little chocolate eggs), and a tin Easter egg (also filled with sweets), and a nice card (which is not in the picture. Darn!). Smiley

Thankyou so much morrigan_le_faye, you are a great swap partner, I love everything you sent to me!

Here's the great stuff I got from Sajona:

A bag, a notebook/journal, knitted wristwarmers, stitch markers, three bracelets, a picture frame, a treasure box, a keyring, chocolate and toffee chocs.

The treasure box, the keyring, the stitch markers and one of the bracelets:

The wrist/arm warmers (well, one of them.. couldn't get a decent photo of the other one):

Thanks a lot Sajona!
Too bad it's getting warm here, I just want to wear the wrist warmers all the time!  Smiley

I wanted to get more photos of the stuff, but the camera didn't agree with me... I'm charging the batteries, I might be able to get more photos in a few hours...

Meh. You guys are making me jealous with those pictures of the sea.
Therefore I'm posting some pictures of Storsjn, the lake I live near.

The lake, but mostly the ship Hrafn, that belongs to sterhus, the viking reenactment group I'm a member of.

Sunset, Hrafn, lake.

6  Reconstructing. Help/ideas please? in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by saylo on: April 11, 2008 05:40:40 AM
I have a red t-shirt, and I quite like it. It fits me, except that it is too short. I have a black t-shirt that's also too short, and I've been thinking of turning the two into one. 
Does anyone have ideas or tips on good ways that would work?

Here are pictures. The first pic is so you can see how it fits/looks now, and the second one mostly because it's closer to the actual colour of the shirt.

I'm also reconstructing a hood sweater (or whatever they are called in English.) I'm from Sweden, and we call it "huvtrja".
Anyway, it's beige, I'm not crazy about the colour nor the overall look of it.
I got enthusiastic and cut the sleeves off. I've also removed the front pocket and cut it open in the front, I'm going to add a zipper, and maybe two large pockets. I need to add more width in the bottom, since I'm one of those big bottomed girls. Should I use fabric from the sleeves or maybe some contrasting colour? What do you think? Please let me know! I'm thinking of dyeing it when I'm done making the other changes... Maybe green.

7  Hedwig and the angry... mittens? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by saylo on: March 29, 2008 07:12:56 AM
I got some wool sweaters at a thrift store more than a year ago, and I felted some of them (washed them in a washing machine), and finally I made something out of one of them. This used to be a gray lambs wool sweater. It was nice, but way too small, even before i felted it.
The mittens are all hand sewn, and I embroidered with some lovely thin wool yarn. I'm in love with that blue colour.  Grin
I have just recently seen the film Hedwig and the angry inch, and I was inspired while making the embroideries.  Wink
The mittens look quite wonky and strange, but feel real nice, and I can see the embroideries on them perfectly when I'm riding my bike.
Anyway, here are some pictures (I struggled with my mothers camera for ages, but I can't seem to be able to get one decent photo...)

Closeups of embroidery:
