11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Puffy scarf on: September 24, 2008 04:11:24 AM
I used puff stitch to make this scarf for a friend's birthday present.  Smiley

Its really long so it can be wrapped cosily around the neck at least twice.

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fingerless gloves on: June 15, 2008 11:57:00 PM
After a few tests of different crochet stitches...

And a couple of dodgy versions, one waaayy too big, the other not snug enough...

I finally got the gloves pretty much right.

They're not perfect, but they fit and are quite comfortable. The mistakes are not obvious and only I know that the thumbs aren't exactly the same!  Grin
14  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / First amigurumi toys on: June 11, 2008 01:59:40 AM
These are my first attempts at amigurumi's using a great little book of patterns.
I think I can now try to create something of my own.  Grin
I'm still trying to work out the whole ply vs crochet hook size issues.

15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Heat Bag Buddies on: June 06, 2008 10:40:35 PM

Its winter here in Australia, so I made some heat bag buddies for my friend's kids. They are filled with wheat grain and are made with hand dyed and made felt.
16  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / My first needle felt workshop on: May 20, 2008 05:44:25 AM
So I taught my first needle felting workshop today. I was crapping myself!! I've never taught before.
And to have to explain what I was doing and trying to be coherent was very scary. It was how to make a teddy bear.
But it went well and I think everyone had fun. They all got to bring home a bear at the end of the 4 hours. They did choose to do a more advanced pose: the reclining teddy bear, so that was a challenge. But I think they all did really well for a first go. Four hours was the max for beginners I think, as arm fatigue was beginning to set in! And quite a few finger pricks too! All part of the learning process.
Here are some pics:

The poster boy for the workshop and the one they all wanted to make:

17  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / More Needle Felted Bears - Image heavy on: May 11, 2008 06:24:28 AM
I've made a couple more bears, I've made them for a needle felting workshop I'm helping out with in a couple of weeks:

18  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Needle felting supplies in London on: April 09, 2008 07:07:41 PM
I'm going to be in London for a few weeks and will be bringing my needle felting kit with me. I was wondering where I could find wool for needle felting that's not too far from London. Are there craft stores that cater to felters?
Any advice would be terrific.
19  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / My first needle felted bear on: April 09, 2008 06:37:32 PM
I'm used to making dogs and cats, but this is my first teddy bear. It only took me 3 hours (my dogs take anywhere from 4-8 hours!) to create including the little birdy.
Its about 3.5 inches/90mm tall. It was fun to make something without real reference.  Smiley

20  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle felt cat cake topper on: April 07, 2008 03:46:01 AM
This order was for a wedding cake topper. I had a lot of fun making these two, and I made sure we communicated to make sure I got the right colour green to match the wedding.
The veil and bow tie are just held in place with pins, so that after the wedding the cats won't look funny without their accessories.
I've asked for a pic of them on the cake.
