1  Re: OTT 19- One Tiny Thing in The Swap Gallery by kittymary on: August 13, 2008 07:20:08 AM
I received my OTT- and I really love it. R0ckwithme made me a gorgeous patchwork fabric bracelet with amazing little embroidered images with beads on each patch. The bracelet has a zip in the middle so it can be either one bracelet or two. Here's some pictures-

And couple of more close up pictures:

Thanks R0ckwithme!

2  Re: Shape, Color and Texture Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kittymary on: July 25, 2008 10:50:03 AM
My swap package from littlebluegirl arrived today, and I love everything! She knitted me a green apple jacket from my wists (Green was my colour), and made me a little felt acorn (For the texture category- mine was soft) and finally a little notebook with a pretty felted cover. (For the shape category- mine was rectangle). And all of these goodies came with a lovely little card too.

I'm going to use the notebook as my birth register to record my births in (I'm a student midwife), I'd been meaning to get a nice little notebook for that so it will be perfect.

Thanks so much littlebluegirl!

I will be posting another picture once I have an apple to model the apple jacket.

3  Re: Zippered Pouch Swap Gallery!!! in The Swap Gallery by kittymary on: May 28, 2008 05:45:28 AM
I received from mixymo today, and if you think she was spoiled, well, you will be amazed by the package I received!

I honestly would have felt spoiled if all she had sent was one of the little acorn stitch markers, I can't believe how perfect they are, all those little tiny stitches! Oops- See why I should read the letter before I get carried away with the pictures! It turns out the stitchmarkers are actually cupcakes, that got a bit squished on their trip across the sea,and looked a bit more acorn shaped than cupcakes! Of course the colours make more sense with cupcakes than acorns, and after squishing them back to their intended shape they look nothing like acorns. Sorry Mixymo! Does it help that I think they're amazing as either cupcakes or acorns?

Pictures! (I hope there's not too many- it was hard to resist putting up separate pictures for each thing they are all so great)

Here's everything all together:

A close up of the zipper pouch showing the cute lining, I love the way the lining shows  through to the outside, so pretty.

Crochet cupcake stitch markers- these are just gorgeous, but I think they may become jewellery as well as stitch markers, they are too cute to be just practical.

Jewellery! The flower on the fabric bracelet is actually a separate brooch but I think they look good together. I love the button brooch and the necklace will look lovely with the buttons.

And a crochet hedgehog pincushion (It seems almost cruel to stick pins in the cute little thing)

Plus the all important chocolate. As you can see I've already made a start on the chocolate... You can't get the violet crumble things here, and they are amazing. They are like crunchies but even nicer. I was a bit disappointed they weren't actually violet flavour though, that really would be the best chocolate ever  Smiley

I just love everything, it's really amazing how someone I've never met could put together so many things that are just perfect. Mixymo- you have definitely spoiled me for future swaps, I don't think anyone could come up with a better swap package. If you ever need a partner for one of those bring your own partner swaps, just let me know.

Thankyou so much Mixymo, you really have made my first swap the best swap ever.

4  Feminist theme bag and flowery zipper pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kittymary on: May 06, 2008 09:05:20 AM
I made these for my friend's birthday. I am planning a nice bag for her, but didn't have time to get it done before her birthday, so I made the zippered pouch out of the fabrics the bag will be made of. The idea is that the zippered pouch can go in the bag and hold a lightweight bag so she always has it with her, since she tries to avoid using plastic bags but tends to forget to take an extra bag out with her.

The transfer paper I used for the picture on the side of the bag turned out pretty badly, and it's already started to peel a bit. Any suggestions for avoiding that in future?

5  hairband - first non-garter stitch knitting in Knitting: Completed Projects by kittymary on: May 06, 2008 08:51:44 AM
I just picked out a diagonal rib pattern from a stitch dictionary online and cast on a bunch of stitches and set off. It took what seemed like an unreasonable amount of time and somehow I managed to reverse the direction of the ribbing a couple of times accidentally, but I like it. In the picture it's piled on top of the beginner knitter's obligatory garter stitch scarf which may be finished by the time winter comes around again!

Does anyone know how I would go about intentionally switching the direction of the diagonal with this stitch pattern- I like how it looks even if it was an accident. Might I have just put the thing back on the needles wrong after frogging a bit to fix a mistake? I did that a couple of times?

6  flowery DS lite case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kittymary on: April 29, 2008 03:17:31 AM
Me and my sister decided we were both going to make cases for our DS's a couple of weeks ago, and here's what I ended up with. I had wanted to do something a bit more complicated, but I kind of wimped out. This one was really easy, just two pieces of fabric sewn together then turned right side out, with a couple of pockets added then blanket stitched together. I'd love to make one that opens up with a zip, and I've seen some really cool ones on here, but I couldn't work out how to make them. Does anyone have any links to good DS case tutorials I could try next time?

7  Pointy Kitty and Boris dog in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kittymary on: April 29, 2008 03:08:27 AM
These two are little creatures I hand sewed. I think everyone will recognise pointy kitty as one of the free patterns from wee wonderfuls. The dog was made from a free pattern from Cath Kidston (if you google Cath Kidston Stanley dog pattern you should find it). Pointy Kitty took me ages and ages to make, compared to if I'd made it on a sewing machine, but it was quite fun. Little Boris was my first attempt at blanket stitch, so I was pretty happy with how well she turned out.

8  For people who want to buy rather than make poppet clothes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by kittymary on: April 17, 2008 04:50:20 AM
I'd read on here that the friends2bmade dolls clothes fit poppets but you can't get them in the UK, but I found a little dress on ebay made for Groovy Girls dolls for 1 and bought it to see if it would fit- and it fits really well, maybe just a little bit tight. So Groovy Girls clothes are another option for bought poppet clothes. The stitching on it is a bit shoddy though, but you can't tell from the outside.

I posted a picture so you could see what the fit is like

9  Re: Poppet Outfits Only! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kittymary on: April 17, 2008 03:33:26 AM
I had a go at making a coat from Craftewoman's pattern. I kind of gave up on the sleeves, and did something different with the collar to cover up putting in on wrong, but I like the way it turned out. My poppet now looks lovely and warm. Don't look too closely at her bag, it didn't turn out that great, but she doesn't seem to care.

10  My first zipper pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kittymary on: April 16, 2008 08:49:10 AM
This is the one of the first things I made on my new sewing machine, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I made it for a friend of mine who has a wire fox terrier dog, and the little dog looks a little bit like her dog, although it's apparently supposed to be a lakeland terrier (I used a pattern piece from Cath Kidston's toy stanley dog pattern for the dog).
