1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / three beanies on: October 17, 2005 08:53:16 AM
i recently crocheted a beanie for a friend... the cold weather is taking forever to get to Houston, but hey, never too early for a beanie, right? 

well, this friend told other friends of his that i made it and i've sold two others made by request...   here are in order the three beanies i have made:

(not me, but my head-model-friend)

this next one was too big and not quite long enough for the person, so i made it smaller and added 2 extra rows on the bottom... still the same general style as the others, but not quite identical.

these suckers are pretty dense and stand up by themselves...
like i said, i've sold the last two, but i don't know if my pricing is good. 
   -the yarn is 20% wool/80% acrylic  super bulky yarn
   -each hat takes a little under one skein, priced at $5 a skein
   -about 2-3 hours to make one

so i'm wondering, what would you pay for a hat like these?  thanks for looking!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / my face. on a mousepad. oh yes. *first time iron-on-er* on: October 03, 2005 12:18:00 AM
so friday night rolls around and i realize:  monday is my friend's birthday.  and i have nothing prepared.  i usually make gifts, but this time i have a predicament.  birthday friend is a graphic designer by trade and i'm sure you all know, it is difficult to make gifts for extremely talented people.  so i describe my plight to a mutual friend, and the first thing he says is, "put your FACE on a mousepad."  sweet child, this is so ridiculous it just might work! 

due to lack of time and willingness to conform by sending out for a photo mousepad, i decide to iron-on transfer a graphic onto a mousepad.  walmart stocks plain colored (blue and black.. uck) mousepads for cheap so i pick one up, along with a foot of white fabric.  i really wish i had taken pictures along the way, but i forgot.  after taking a photo that shows my obnoxious excitement (a joke for birthday friend), i tweak it a bit and my resulting graphic is as follows:

flip the image, print on iron-on, and iron on fabric first.  then, glue (Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac) to mousepad.  the glue didn't go through the fabric, but made it a bit darker than when it was dry.  the glueing was definitely the hardest part, but i pressed on.  a nice trim off the edges with my handy x-acto and bob's your uncle-- a photo mousepad!

the mousepad at work!  (the glue was still wet in some spots here, hope it dries)

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / slim camera case on: September 26, 2005 12:01:58 AM
this is my second camera case for my Sony T7.... the first one was constructed late and night and was just a mess... however it's now autumn and in celebration i made a new camera case! 

orange foam rubber outside, burgundy felt inside...

the lining is hot glued into the outside casing, but i left one side unglued to allow space for some cash and whatnot... my friend's momma labeled it for me : )

my camera fits perfectly! i'd show a picture of the camera inside its case, but ya know... there would be nothing to take the photo with!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 1st sewing project! :one strap backpack: on: March 26, 2005 07:42:16 PM
so i've been telling myself that someday i'll learn to sew and today i did.
as i was meandering in walmart i happened upon a man in full bagpipe attire and whence i saw his socks with tassles i freaked out and determined then and there that i needed a bag reminiscent of the outfit.

my friend helped me with the tricky sewing parts and showed me how to read patterns...
so here in all her tartan plaid glory, Pursy McPurserson!




(the yellow isn't neon, it's more of a mac and cheese color)
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 4.20 weed whacking on: March 10, 2005 01:23:42 AM
this year i've decided to make a t-shirt for april 20th, (4/20)  is a day celebrated as a day to smoke marijuana.  i believe it started out at some high school in the 70's, when a group of kids decided that 4.20 was the agreed upon time to meet and light up.
i don't smoke, so i finally found a graphic of a weed whacker.  on the back i have "weed is for whacking."
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / weed whacker stencil? on: March 07, 2005 11:40:33 PM

9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / rediculous pink dress (poofy sleeves made me buy it!) on: January 05, 2005 12:59:33 PM
$6 value village impulse buy:  hot pink polyesterlike dress, just past knee length with the most rediculously large puffy sleeves. 

this thing would be the hotness on the right person, but silly me didn't check for previous alteration before purchasing.   Embarrassed  it's way too small, and the extra fabric has been cut out, so i'm afraid no altering will be possible.
