21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Happy and Crab Grass on: February 08, 2010 10:03:40 AM
I made these last weekend.  They were really easy to do, and came out so cute!  I'm always amazed at what different types of yarn will do in the same pattern.  I made the Happy grass first, then had to make of course, Crab grass.  I got the free pattern from here 

Onto the pictures!

Okay, still unhappy.

He's my favorite!

Thanks for looking!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jester style knit hat! on: January 25, 2010 10:00:19 AM
I got this pattern from the Lion Brand Website (but can't find the pattern to link to it right now).  It took me about 1.5 months to do, mostly because I thought I bought enough yarn, yadda yadda yadda.  I made it using the berry colored yarn from Deborah Norville's line.  It's basically knit in the round, then you separate off for the peaks.  Anyway, I finished it yesterday. It's a bit heavy because of all the peaks to it.  I live in So Cal, so not sure if I will ever get to wear it.

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mini sweater for my bear! on: January 19, 2010 11:14:29 AM
I've been knitting for about a year now, and I wanted to do a few things: 1, stash bust, 2, practice knitting and 3, make my cold bear a sweater.  Smiley
I decided to do this pattern out of the book "Knits for Bears to Wear".  It was pretty easy and quick, and used up 1 whole skein I had!  I only had to frog it once Smiley

It's basically a rib pattern, k3, p3.
There are other cute patterns in the book that I might try to help me learn new techniques on small projects.

Thanks for looking!

24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Padres baseball blanket on: January 19, 2010 11:10:08 AM
I love the San Diego Padres!  I can't wait for baseball season to start!  But since it's too cold for baseball right now, I made a blanket.  It was from a Crochet Today magazine (the pattern was for a baby blanket, but I just made it bigger). I also crocheted long pieces then sewed them on to make the letters. The colors are the Padres colors.

As you can see, my dog has to get into everything and will probably claim this blanket like he has every other one I've made!
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Squeaky Jellyfish! on: January 19, 2010 11:05:34 AM
My dog loves toys with lots of limbs- octopus, etc. He also loves to play with toys I make him out of polar fleece (I think he likes my smell on it and thinks he's chewing on me!). I made him this jellyfish - and made sure to sew the legs on extra good!  He loves it!  He chases it when you throw it and he has already slimified it!

Here it is before he got it all gooey...

26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Yeti with a latte on: January 19, 2010 11:00:42 AM
I've been on an Urban Threads embroidery kick lately - most of the things I've done have been from their patterns. Here is a Yeti drinking a latte (or hot chocolate for me, since I don't drink coffee!). I decided since it's a little cool here that I should put him on a sweatshirt.

Here he is, sipping away!

Thanks for looking!
27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pear-shaped pear on: October 14, 2009 10:12:08 PM
I made another Urban Threads design while on vacation.  I actually worked on it on the plane - they let my blunt needle through security!

It's done on a light yellow lightweight canvas.  Again, as with my other Urban Threads dinosaur Rawr, I'm not sure what to do with it. I'm thinking I may want to experiment with coloring it with crayons, and maybe putting it on a messenger bag. 
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rar! I'm scary (not!) on: September 26, 2009 07:51:24 AM
I'm new to this section of Craftster - I usually post in the crochet or plushies section.  I recently discovered Urban Threads from one of the banners on this site.  I don't have a machine to embroider, but I do like to do stuff by hand. I haven't embroidered in years, but the patterns Urban Threads have are so cute!
This is my dinosaur. He's done with very simple stitching, as it's my first embroidery project in a while. He's done on some fabric from a wornout pair of my husband's shorts.  The colors aren't quite right in the picture - they are lighter in real life.
Now that he's done, I'm not quite sure what to do with him. Any suggestions?

Thanks for looking!

I took everyone's suggestions and decided to put it on a shirt like a patch.  I just stitched around it on my machine a few times. I'm going to wear it to work tomorrow.

29  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Prawn from District 9 on: September 13, 2009 04:32:14 PM
I went to see District 9 last weekend (great movie!) and loved the signs they had around in the movie of where prawns were prohibited from going.  I decided to make this shirt.  I used contact paper and cut out the prawn alien shape. Then I used a 50-50 bleach water solution and sprayed it on around the shape.

30  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Happy Birthday Cake! on: September 07, 2009 06:44:26 PM
I made this from the pattern in Ana Paula Rimoli's new book "Amigurumi two!".  I made it a little different though, instead of berries on the cake, I made flowers.  I think my favorite part is the candle.  It's a little over 1 foot high.
