1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Scarf // First Time Making Button Hole on: February 24, 2010 08:28:13 PM
I haven’t really crocheted much since I graduated High School (almost 4 years ago), but over the break I decided to pick it up again. I made a simple short, cowl-ish scarf with a button closure, Im not sure if I did them correctly (I basically just skipped attaching it to the other hoops, and made a short chain – then reattached it) 

Anway here it is!

My button method seemed to work fine - but feel free to offer any advice on how you do it!

Happy Crafting!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knifty knitter cowls on: February 02, 2010 06:08:23 PM
I know these scarfs are not as exciting as many items on the knitting board, but besides hats, there the only thing I have figured out how to make on the Knifty Knitter. In my excitement, I made them nonstop over winter break. I wish I could figure out different patterns on it, but even the instructional books seem like a foreign language to me! Here are the two that I liked the best:

Self portrait fully inspired by the fabulous Mid-West craft diva, Leslie hall! This was an acrylic painting I did on a found piece of plywood. I suppose the measurements are a little off, but I think that only adds to playfulness of it. Haha, stay crafty!

Comments and criticism welcomed!

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Duchamp Shuffle - Etching on: December 09, 2009 05:27:58 PM
Hey Craftsters!

Hurray for the end of the semester!

This is an etching I did for a class project. The assignment was to make an etching through a record of data or some kind of action. For my project I recorded my first game of chess, both pieces had hard ground on them and were placed face down under the kings. I played on a concrete chess table, which helped with the mark making. The first print is mine, and the second is my opponent.

As Duchamp was a great chess player, I chose to title it after him.

Comments and criticism welcomed!   

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Top Tube Bike Bag on: October 04, 2009 06:43:12 AM

I hate having to carry more than I need to when I ride my bike. So, I have been planning to make a bag that would attach to my bike and be just big enough to hold my keys and phone, but then I came across this old boy scout bag. It was the perfect size, I just removed the old strap, made three small ones and added snaps, and placed it so it would hang from the top tube of my bike. It has worked ok so far, but I'm worried about the keys sliding out, so i might adjust the straps later.


6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Book inspired collages on: April 13, 2009 01:16:05 PM
Three books were chosen at random from the library; collages were created using the topics of the book and a little bit of imagination. They are made on ups packaging labels so they double as stickers. The collages will be placed back in the books for the next reader.

First book was about communes in Europe, it more so mocks the people I see today who ignore there privileges, and expresses the idea of privileged white people choosing to live in “poverty” or how this idea  is exploited in many different subcultures.

The second book was all about lucha libre, which is a form of wrestling. The picture speaks for its self. Haha

And the Final book was about Alaskan folk tales, songs, and poetry. The poem that I reference (directly) in the collage is a hunter speaking to a caribou, in a very sexual language in order to entice the caribou to come closer to the hunter.

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / heart paper cut on: February 13, 2009 06:20:09 PM
Just in time for Valentines Day!

Nothing to exciting, I did this for my design class. The assignment was to “casually listen” to another persons conversation, and then choose a quote and create an image from in. Then we used the paper cuts to make prints.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cycling Neckerchief (image heavy) on: December 04, 2008 10:10:51 AM
Hey Yall!   

Theres nothing worse that riding in the winter, with the cold air flying into your face and freezing your nose! so I made this neckerchief

As modeled by the bf:

I just cut and sewed a bandanna with a plaid fleece liner, then cut a hole for the nose and sewed jersey material in between, I had some trouble with the snaps so I ended up just using Velcro.

It was sewd evenly its just folded a bit so it looked werid in this photo :

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Is sculpey clay safe for plugs? on: December 04, 2008 08:52:57 AM
hey yall!

I would really start to make my own plugs (earrings for stretched ears). I have seen some made out of resin and have heard that it is not safe for your ears (because it is porous and it can leak toxins) Is Sculpey clay safe (it says it is non toxic on the package) but if it is porous does it need to be sealed? If so that kind of sealant would you suggest?
