1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: "Proposing"...to my bridesmaids. Cards and jewelry! on: October 29, 2012 08:53:36 PM
Yes! I was trying to post a picture but my computer is being quite silly.   Angry

   Here is the inside of the card with the necklaces in place!


2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / "Proposing"...to my bridesmaids. Cards and jewelry! on: October 28, 2012 01:20:19 AM
I just got engaged a couple of months ago, and so far my fiance and I are planning an October wedding...three years away.  Tongue That's when I'll be finished with grad school and he will be finished with his bachelor's, and even though it's extremely early my mom and I are actively planning things, and we need lots of help/sanity support. So I figured I'd rope my sister and a couple of roommates from college into this, but I wanted to ask them in a memorable way. I saw very very cute "will you be my bridesmaid?" cards on etsy, and I figured I could do something similar, while stubbornly doing it myself. A few hours later...

   Nothing too impressive, I know, but I forgot how to use spray adhesive and killed quite a few brain cells in the process. I also decided to make little birdsnest necklaces, and further injured myself with wire and pliers.


    This one wound up being tossed because I left the bar code showing...but you can see the inside, and that's what's important.

   So I know they're not great, but I think my sister and friends will like them, and if they don't, I had fun making them. I want to make a lot of things for the wedding, (hopefully better executed than these,) but it was my first craft for the wedding, and it made me squeal.

   Thanks for looking!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First sewing project! [capri pants] on: May 14, 2011 04:14:56 PM
  I really never learned how to sew during my formative years, due to a fear of the sewing machine and a preoccupation with knitting. I've wanted to learn though, and when my mother let me steal her sewing machine, I set about to teaching myself. Three wounds, eight broken needles, two frustrated tantrums, and several yards of fabric later, I managed to hobble together something that I can more or less hang off of my person in the semblence of clothing!



    They are simple, they have extremely obvious and visible seams, and they're so huge it's ridiculous, but I am still very excited about them.

   Thanks for looking!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ginger Pig! The first pattern I've ever written! on: April 03, 2011 01:31:34 PM
   I like pigs. I like their trotty little feets and waggy tails. I just started knitting yesterday without much thought of how this was going to turn out, but I'm really pleased by how it worked. I'm going to replicate it and write out the pattern, if I can remember what I did. c:
    Thanks for looking!

It doesn't really matter if they're simple..they take a lot of time! Yours is absolutely lovely, good job.  Smiley

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bitterroot Shawl on: March 16, 2011 08:44:56 PM
This is my second attempt at a lace shawl! The first one turned out weird, although I blamed it on my having neglected to block it- I'm doing that now. Fingers crossed! Anyways, I knitted this shawlette to go along with a maxi dress I made for my superise 24th birthday party that I'm not supposed to know about. Cheesy I used a cotton/linen/silk yarn and size 2 needles. I wanted to see if I could get it finished in a week- I started last Thursday, and I took it off the blocking mat at 11:30, so I cut it close but I got it done. I'm really thrilled to have it finished! Thanks for looking!

It depends on your skill level, but it shouldn't be too hard. How big are you wanting it to be? I can try and write a pattern up for you. Tongue
