1  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by magick8ball on: February 18, 2008 10:14:28 AM

One of my roller derby teammates has been apprenticing at a local shop, and we'd been talking about this for months. My original idea was not nearly as cool as what she designed for me. I took an afternoon off work and a few days off derby (without hitting people with my shoulder) to let it heal. Eh, who am I kidding. I still went to scrimmage, but I worked on hip checks!

2  Roller derby onesie! First project!! in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by magick8ball on: July 10, 2006 06:03:14 PM
A teammate is having a baby, and I made her a derby onesie for bringing her spawn to the bouts. This is my first embroidery project, and I am so excited at how it turned out! The weird pucker around the edges is the backing I sewed on at the last minute, realizing that babies might not like a bunch of knots rubbing against the chest. Next time I'll know, eh?

Not sure if the closeup photo shows any more detail, but here it is:

3  Slouchy hobo inspired by "Happy Hooker" in Knitting: Completed Projects by magick8ball on: July 10, 2006 05:56:28 PM
Yarn: Moda Dea Cache, in that blu color that's always on sale. 3 skeins.

Needles:10 1/2, strap in single crochet, also size 10 1/2.

Pattern: I bought SnB Happy Hooker. I loved the "Fat Bottom Bag", but I didn't like the way it was turning out. So I made it a knit instead. And I gave it a strap instead of the wooden handles. And a button closure, because I like shiny red buttons. Voila!

The color may be a bit washed out, but it shows my favorite part- the sparkly gold filament woven in with the yarn!

Here is my version in Softee Chunkee + vintage brown that just happened to match and knit to the same gauge.
I started on 11's, then switched to 10 1/2 circulars when things got too crowded. Luckily it didn't make much of a gauge difference.
When I cast off the first time, it was too short and horribly unflattering. Impatience gets me every time. So, I went back, made it a little longer, and added three sets of short rows to counteract the problems with the back length (first time- yay!) The first set went between the imaginary arm seams, the second 3 sts in towards the center, and the third 3 more sts in. I did two more green rows, and began the ribbing. I think my ribbing may be a bit longer, too.
Done in a weekend, and finished with a vintage pearl button.
And here it is in action Friday night!
BTW, I made that shot. Just, you know, for the record.
Awesome pattern! Thanks!
PS: It took just slightly more than one skein of yarn. Which, besides busting stash, rings up at well under $4.00 for 2 skeins of Sofffftee Chunkkeeee. I hate brand-name misspellings.

6  Re: What's black and white and REaD all over? in Halloween Costumes by magick8ball on: October 28, 2005 01:55:08 PM
Thanks! Here's the top:

and the skirt:

for the netting, I folded it in half, ran a yarn needle through in a running stitch, and tied the yarn off at the appropriate diameter. I wanted it to sit below my butt, and be loose enough for dancing. Then, I moved the scrunched up netting around the yard loop until it was more or less even. I safety pinned the whole thing where i wanted it on the skirt. Then, because I left the corners on my circle/square skirt, i pulled them up to reveal more netting. I safety pinned those, too, and tied ribbon bows around the exposed part of the pins.

I may go back and stabilize the skirt, but all that really means is more pins!

7  Crafty boyfriend makes a bike bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by magick8ball on: October 28, 2005 12:38:12 PM
So my BF is an art school grad with some serious craft-phobia. Other than that, we get along fine. Imagine my surprise when I came home to see him cutting up an old, busted pair of cargo pants to make a purse satchel! He sewed the two cargo pockets together and attached the waistband to make a strap. He needed more length, so he used some of the leftover material to extend the strap, and just happened to find a bag of buttons on his way home from the bar that night! What luck! There is also a backing, to be used as a magazine pouch.

8  What's black and white and REaD all over? in Halloween Costumes by magick8ball on: October 28, 2005 12:18:54 PM
My halloween costume!!!!
5 yards red tulle, 2 yards red grosgrain ribbon, and 2 yards stretchy newsprint fabric from the dollar bin.
Tube top plus "circle" skirt (actually a square with the corners pulled up and fastened with safety pins and red ribbon.)
Add a beer tab belt for kicks.
Stencil "LIES!" across the top.
Make a statement about responsible media consumption?
Nah. Well, kinda.

9  TMBG- I'm a little glowing friend! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by magick8ball on: July 13, 2005 01:02:23 PM
Made these for the show last night. The blue is actually iron-on- "filibuster vigilantly." The white was made last night with green glow-in-the-dark paint.

I made this stencil from a picture, it was amazing in the dark club!!!

my saturday night:

thanks for the tutorials and site recommendations. this came from stencilxcore.

okay, here you go... my beautiful stencil, as seen on my 1st trial ever, with spray paint on cardboard:

and the abomination that resulted when i tried to combine silver spray paint, an old black sweatshirt, and cheap computer paper. I should have known better.

Well, the hoodie was heading for goodwill anyway. might as well make it interesting.
BTW, i made this stencil from a picture that i photoshopped. I'll probably try it again, because it has so much potential!
