11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crocheted purse for spring on: April 13, 2009 04:10:26 PM
Over a year ago I bought these wooden bead handles on sale and they've been on my mind ever since but I've just had to much on my mind to really make something of it. Then all of a sudden I found some old cotton yarn lying around and decided it was time. So I made a purse and used the handles and my 16-year old fell in love with it on the spot and confiscated it.
I did have time to take some pics though:

Thanks for looking.
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Spring scarf on: April 13, 2009 04:03:50 PM
It all started with one left over ball of milk yarn. I had to make something with it so I decided to knit a baby hat. Said and done. After finishing the hat I thought It needed a scarf to go with it, but since it's a small girl I wanted it to come alive a bit, and there wasn't enough yarn to make a whole scarf. So, I had som great Rowan cotton that came in handy. Crocheted a mesh, and then I crocheted a string of flowers in the milk yarn leftovers and weaved it in.
This is how it looks:

Thanks for looking.
13  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Another Suicide Bunny. on: April 13, 2009 07:42:41 AM
Here's another Suicide Bunny, amigrumi style. This one is more suicidal than dead, but still, he seems determined.

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / New skirts for my daughter. on: March 21, 2009 05:59:45 AM
My daughter who is soon to be sixteen has discovered the skirt. Well, she's had skirts before of course, but now she wants me to make her new ones.
I'm not hard to convince of course so I made her these.

The first one is made from vintage fabric (late 50's I think) that was probably ment to be curtains, but I think it worked just as well as a skirt. It's cotton.

This is made in a cotton wool blend and is really soft.

She loves them. Hope you like them too.
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote bag for Swedish weather on: March 19, 2009 07:20:28 PM
My niece who's eventually going to get this is living in the very south of Sweden. You might think that the biggest weather issue in Sweden would be snow, but not really, it's rain, making snow into slush or just rain.
I also know that my niece is sort of a snob and likes certain designers so I made a totebag with a Marimekko pvc bottom. That way she can put down the bag on the ground whatever the weather's like.

It's a bad pic, but the coloured part is khaki green.
16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I can play with wet stuff I on: March 19, 2009 07:14:28 PM
I made this from a piece of Marimekko fabric with a pvc side for my nieces daughter who is starting to see the fun in colours and helping dad with the dishes. She simply needed an apron and since I had this piece lying around it came in handy.


17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Another granny blanket. on: March 19, 2009 07:10:21 PM
My friends just had their second baby and they're both geeks so I decided to make them a Tetris blanket.
Unfortunately this great idea popped up in Malicas mind too and she beat me to it, but I guess crafster is big enough for both of us, don't you?

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Opeth remix on: March 19, 2009 07:04:49 PM
So, I had this idea for making a band t-shirt into a dress for a baby and since I don't have that many babies around me whos parents actually would appreciate that kind of gift I decided to make it for one whos parents really would.
I got an old Opeth tee from Mike kerfelts (the singer and founder of Opeth) wife Anna and turned it into a dress for their youngest daughter Mirjam.

Here it is:

Here with leggins (store bought):

Mike looked a bit scared when I told him I wanted to give him my Opeth remix (I guess he gets that a lot from fans) but when he saw it I know he loved it. Smiley
19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Carl Larsson-outfit for christmas. on: March 18, 2009 07:01:20 AM
I made this for my nieces daughters first christmas. Carl Larsson is a swedish painter who painted idyllic pics in the beginning of the 20th century. He painted his wife and daughters and all the girls has this kind of dresses with bloomers and aprons.

I think it's cute. What do you think?
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Norwegian sweater/sleepingbag for baby. on: March 17, 2009 06:54:33 PM
I made this for my nieces daughter when she was newborn. It took quite some time and was hard work, but also very funny to make.
I's a combined sweater and sleepingbag to use in a stroller.

Hope you like it!
