11  Fishy Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Lizabiz08 on: March 25, 2010 03:10:49 PM
My friend gave me a big bag of old beads a while ago, it just sat around the house until a few days ago when I decided to make some earrings out of some of them. And now I've  made 2 pairs of fish earrings, one pink and one a light green. I think I'll give them to my nieces. I also made another pair of non fish earrings that I think needs improving on.

Pink Fish

Green Fish

This pic is quite a bit blurry. They look just like the pink fish. I just don't want to upload more now.

Earrings that need improving. They are basically the same earring, one has blue dangly beads, and the other doesn't. I'm not sure which I like better, or if I should keep either.

I would love suggestions. Have a great day.

12  Purple and Pearls Dangle Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Lizabiz08 on: March 22, 2010 10:07:00 PM
I recently started making jewelry, and I'm really enjoying it. I went to my mom's the other day and I got all my old jewelry I wouldn't wear anymore, and I'm re-purposing them into new things, like these earrings. They are made from a bracelet, and necklace. I don't have before pics. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet.


Close up. Sorry for the blurriness, I couldn't get a good pic.

Comments/Criticisms always welcome.

Have a good night. Smiley

Blue and white (the blue is darker than it shows)

Pink and white

Thanks for looking. Comments and criticisms appreciated.  Smiley

14  Knitted Dog Sweater in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Lizabiz08 on: March 17, 2010 05:42:38 PM
I got a golden retriever puppy about 2 weeks ago, and she's the cutest thing ever. Since she's a girl my fiance agreed to all the pink things I wanted to buy. Smiley But no clothes. But I just got a knifty knitter, and I just HAD to make her a sweater even though it's warming up. I thought she looked cute despite it being a little small due to my laziness. Here's the link to the pattern: http://lindasloomroom.blogspot.com/2006/02/knifty-knitter-chihuahua-or-small-dog.html.

The Sweater

Her with the sweater on (I'm pretty sure she hated it)

And just one of her cuteness

15  New Hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lizabiz08 on: March 15, 2010 02:21:05 PM
So I recently purchases a Knifty Knitter because I've been wanting to knit. But it's never gone well in the past. I've found it addicting. I have made 2 hats, and a sock. Yes just one sock because it was huge, and I didn't want to waste more yarn. Currently Im working on a dog sweater for my puppy.

First Hat. It is just a simple baby hat done on the smallest (blue) loom. The flash made it shiny. But it is white with yellow, green, and blue.

Second hat. I worked on this as the same time as the sock. I found the yarn at the dollar store, sadly it was the only yarn in the entire store. But it was pink, and had little strings and silver things coming off.

The sock. It is Lion Suede in teal. It looks like green to me though. It is a soft and thick yarn. It'd make a great hat. I found the pattern here: http://yarngear.com/looms/projects1.htm.

Comments/Criticisms accepted and appreciated. Smiley

16  First Bead Necklaces (Kinda Chunky) in Beads: Completed Projects by Lizabiz08 on: March 14, 2010 08:37:10 PM
So I'm getting married, probably this June. So I decided for my bridesmaids, and flower girls gift I would make them necklaces. I asked them all their favorite colors so I could incorporate them, and bought a special charm for each person. I used to make beaded necklaces as a kid, but I had never used wire for them, just elastic. I've only gotten 2 done so far. I like them, but I'd love to know what others think. Sorry for the poor picture quality as it's night here, and I used my fiances iPhone, my camera batteries are dead, and I'm too lazy to go charge them right now.

This is for one of my bridesmaids. She isn't a girly girl, and likes skulls, and black and such.

The Charm. There are 3 crystals on the skull.

The pattern. It is dark blue, black, and white beads.

This one is for my flower girl. She is 6 and like many little girls likes faeries.

The charm. Her wings are light pink crystals.

The pattern. For hers I used light pink, 2 shades of purple, and clear.

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
