1  String Market Bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by onecraftybitch on: February 18, 2008 12:22:05 PM
I know that a string market bag is out of season, but I had been wanting one for quite a while. I attempted a number of patterns but ended up frogging the bag over and over. Enough was enough and I finally cobbled together a pattern from two other patterns on the web and sheer necessity!

Lace credit goes to crafty galore on livejournal. I didn't use circulars so I had to edit the lace a bit.
Her lace pattern was
A: k2tog, yo*
Mine ended up being
A: K1,*yo, k2tog*
B: knit

Handles and top of bag credit goes to disdressed. Her edits were way helpful and the pictures made it easy too!

yarn: less than one ball sugar and cream in teal
needles: 13 ( wooden is way easier than aluminum!)
New techniques: Kitchner stitch and using stitch holders

2  My So Called Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by onecraftybitch on: February 18, 2008 12:05:03 PM
I found the pattern for this scarf on the Sheep in the City blog and had to have it!  The name makes me think of 'My So Called Life'- early 90's anyone? Either way, the pattern was easy and it knit up pretty quick. I am a big fan of the scarf as it is warm and brings a much needed splash of color to a grey winter!

The lowdown:
Yarn: Lion Brand Landscapes in Summer Fields
Amount: 3 balls since I like my scaves long
Needles: Size 13

3  Re: Feminist/ Woman-centred Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by onecraftybitch on: October 07, 2007 02:21:29 PM
My swap package came in the mail from sticky_fingers yesterday! I am very lucky since all of the swap treats are amazing!

All wrapped up and ready to open!

An amazing messanger bag! The applique is based off a Le Tigre song, one that I happen to love love love! It looks like most ( if not all) of the bag was hand stitched. Kudos to sticky_fingers!

A bit of detail on the amazingness that is this bag!

Beautiful green triangular earrrings! The shape is respresentative of female sexuality....love them!

A fabulous hand appliqued bag for holding pads/cups. I love that the cup, pad and droplets are smiling! The bag velcros on the inside.

An amazing cross stitch! I love the image and the stitches and well, everything about it. It is pretty small, perhaps 1-1.5 inches for the height and width. I love that such a powerful image is in such a traditional woman's medium. Brilliant!

Everything rocks! Thank you so much sticky_fingers!

4  Clothes pin bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by onecraftybitch on: October 07, 2007 02:06:45 PM
Background: We wanted to get away from using our dryer everytime we did laundry. We have a wooden laundry rack that expands but needed a bit more drying space. Up went the clothes line and out came the clothes pins!

The bag was created a bit out of necessity. My girlfriend will not wear an apron to hold the pins when she puts out laundry and I hated forgetting the pins inside while hanging laundry. The design is based off of the chalk bags that climbers use. The top has a piece of plastic in it to keep it open. It hooks to your pants/belt loops via a carabiner.

The bag works and both of us actually use it. Less time with the dryer running is good all around!

5  Curtain to apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by onecraftybitch on: May 24, 2007 09:01:20 PM
The apron was a brithday gift for a friend who is a great cook. Luckliy, she loved the apron! The red fabric use to be curtains, but I really can't imagine them in my or anyone elses house. The rickrack was added, because well..I love rickrack and every apron needs some. The ties are long enough to tie in a big fat bow in the back. Next, bring on the cupcakes! ( and cookies and pie and other tasty baked goods!)

6  Needle roll in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by onecraftybitch on: April 27, 2007 03:58:17 PM
My needle roll is based off of the one in Stitch'n'Bitch. I had to make the roll quite a bit smaller, as the dimensions of the pattern in the book were huge!

It holds the needles I have and leaves me room for more! Whee!

7  Feminism+totebag=strange looks at grocery store in Stenciling: Completed Projects by onecraftybitch on: April 27, 2007 03:55:17 PM
I had a premade totebag that needed a little feminist love. Red just seemed to pop, so that is what I went with. The stencil is from stencilry...not my design.

I do get some stange looks at the grocery store. I'm liking it and gets my feelings out there!

8  Yoga mat bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by onecraftybitch on: April 27, 2007 03:44:29 PM
I needed a bag to carry my yoga mat around in ( and to store it when I am slacking and not doing yoga). I was looking for simple and here simple is. I wanted to avoid sewing straps and adding toggles to close the top, so the handle is also a drawstring. The bag is not lined as the fabric is a bit heavy. It works quite well and I'm enjoying it!

9  Celebrating entrance into womanhood!- updated with pictures! in Discussion and Questions by onecraftybitch on: March 17, 2006 06:06:20 AM
Hello to all!

I am having a craft conundrum. I am looking to do something to celebrate my younger sister's entrance into womanhood. She isn't there yet, but I want to be able to celebrate her when the time comes.

So many women remember thier first bleeding with disgust and shame. I never want her to feel that way. I want her to feel like she is moving into another phase of her life, leaving some parts of childhood behind and picking up a few pieces of womanhood.  I wish that someone had thrown me a shin-dig when I started bleeding!  We don't live in the same place, so I'd have to either be able to send her things or do them when we are together.

So far I was thinking-
send her a copy of 'our bodies our selves'
plant a tree/shrub
send her a red piece of clothing ( shirt)

How were you celebrated? What would have you wanted? What did you do to celebrate your sisters/neices/friends/daughters?


Ok...so after 10 pages of amazing ideas and stories and two years of thinking and procrastinating on the package...it finally came together! I am pleased to report that it was well recieved!

The package finally contained:
a copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves
a journal and pen
homemade heat packs
red and black period panties
bag to hold pads/pons

There was so much more that I could have put in and considered doing so. I think that I will continue sending her books, articles, fun things that celebrate her as a woman and person. I would have like that!

Just want to say thank you to everyone for your help, suggestions, and stories. Thank you for sharing.

Quick recap of what there is: bag in Gryffindor colors to hold handmade runes ( !)
packet of quills and "parchment"
Jar with Rita Skeeter magnet
House elf hat

The whole thing was Hermione themed!

Apologies for the wonky pictures...I am learning how to do this!
