11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First felted purse... turned out pretty funky! on: April 11, 2005 07:54:47 PM
Here is my first attempt at felting.  I got some wool/acrylic blend on sale at my LYS and gave it a whirl.  I knitted it on size 10 1/2 circulars and got the shape because I was afraid it was turning out too huge so I just decreased a bunch of stitches half-way up the purse.  I made two I-cords and twisted them for the handle.  The closure is just a rectangle with a buttonhole knitted on one side.  I felted the closure seperately and sewed it on later. I think I'm going to sew up the buttonhole though and put a magnetic snap on the flap because the button is stretching out the buttonhole already.  Anyway, hope you like it!

Thanks!  I just looked this book up on Amazon.  I think I'm going to have to order it... thanks for the tip. Seeing the excerpts from Ms. Jacobsen's book made me think about how lucky I am to have the life that I have.  I'm glad art was able to help her confront her past.

I caught my husband dinkin' around with my sewing machine the other day.  He made me a glove out of scrap material.  It was the cutest thing ever but I wish he could sew like Andrew:)  The neck of my glove is so tight that I have to commit to wearing it awhile before I tug it on...

I spelled Jayne wrong in my last post.  I don't deserve to call myself a Browncoat. I could give a lame excuse about having a good friend named Jane and that's why I spelled it wrong... but that would just be a weak and pathetic attempt at excusing the unexcusable.  My apologies.... once again, that's the sweetest hat ever.  Very cunning:)

I think it goes without saying that you are quite talented.   Excellent work!

Okay, I thought I was excited the day I first came upon crafster... then I saw that someone had stenciled a Blue Sun shirt (which I have since done myself) and now I've found people making Jane hats... it's so nice to realize that you aren't the only girl on the block into Firefly and knitting!   Grin  Grin  Grin  Grin

Emisanboo, I checked out the link you have to The Message and I'm so psyched!  I thought I had combed the internet to find a good pic of Jane's shirt in that episode and now I have one... shiny!  I've just started my first scarf but the Jane hat is going to be project #2.  The hubby is going to crap himself when he sees it...

Yea, I had big plans for my pics but I ended up just making frames with some cardstock I had and put magnets on the back.  My sis liked them anyway!  I've started an altered photo wall so I hope to amass a large colorful collection over time.  Thanks for checking them out:)

I used all sorts of things to color them!  The key is to get the picture wet and then sand off the parts of the pic you don't like.  Then let the pic dry and it has a nice rough surface you can alter.  I used acrylics, craft paints, markers, pens, decopaged paper, watercolor pencils... just about anything that seemed to work.  Just experiment... if you're anything like me you have tons of pics around the place just collecting dust anyway.  What's the difference if you ruin a couple:)

Hope everyone had a great New Year's!  I got Stitch 'n Bitch for Christmas so I'm learning to knit (horrible so far!)   Margarita parties sound like a fantastic idea Staralee!  I'd love to help at your shop but I'm afraid the times I'm available don't coincide with your needs... I'll email you just in case they would work:)

I've tried my hand at altered books... while they looked fun/funky, they take a ton of energy so I lost interest.  I still  think they're fun to look at and one of my favorite artists is Karen Michel.  http://www.karenmichel.com/  I recently bought the first edition of my new favorite craft magazine (Cloth, Paper, Scissors) and Karen was one of the featured artists.  She did an incredible tutorial of how to make altered photos (I posted pics of some photos I've altered last month).

Here's another good site.   http://www.alteredbookartists.com/
