1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ride My Bike Bag - Cross Body Bag (lots o' pics) on: April 27, 2007 06:46:12 PM
Ok, so I've been saying for a few weeks now that I need a bag with a long strap to wear when I'm riding my bike.  So I took the day off today and since it was all rainy and gross out, I stayed in and made this bag.  I'm so happy with how it came out, it's exactly what I wanted.  Here you go:

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Super Easy Sleep Mask on: August 10, 2006 06:04:43 PM
So the elastic on my store-bought sleep mask broke a couple months ago, and I finally got around to making myself a new one.  I didn't use any pattern, but after I made it I searched on here and saw that SarahFroggy has a very similar mask and tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24227.0

Here's mine:

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Artful Afghan on: June 14, 2006 02:39:36 PM
I just finished my Artful Afghan yesterday!  Actually I finished knitting it two days ago, but I didn't actually sit down and make myself weave in the ends until yesterday.  I love how it came out.  I got the pattern from the Lion Brand website, although I've seen similar patterns from different brands.  It's made out of Wool-ease.

Here it is:
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pretty little leaf shirt on: June 06, 2006 02:02:10 PM
I made this a couple of months ago, but finally found the cord to connect my digital camera usb cord.  I used some knit fabric that I bought as a remnant somewhere and some scrap fabric for the leaf.  I just traced a shirt that fit me well for the most part.  Then I just added the bottom band, and I love how it turned out.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Blue Charm Bracelet and Matching Earrings on: June 06, 2006 01:56:23 PM
So I finally found the cord to connect my digital camera to my computer, so I can post the present I made for my mom for mother's day.  She had pointed out a bracelet she really liked that was $60, but I am broke, so I decided to try to make her something similar.  Of course the real bracelet she liked had real glass beads and crystals, and this one just has cheap beads, but I think that it was a pretty good substitute.  When she opened it, she said it looked just like the one she showed me and wanted to know where I got it, so I think she liked it.

Here it is:

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue Pleated Bag on: December 08, 2005 02:20:21 PM
I made a new bag now that I'm done with finals!



I should have put some interfacing on the straps, they're really flimsy.  Oh well, I'll remember next time.  
7  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 8 ENTRIES / Washer Mobile on: December 05, 2005 02:21:25 PM

I used three sizes of washers, a metal disc (i'm not sure what it's really for), and plastic wire for hanging pictures.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lothario - the sexy monster... on: September 17, 2005 06:26:06 PM
So I saw Nina's felt monster tutorial a long time ago,


and have been meaning to try to make my own.  Then I was at a thrift shop the other day and found this really soft fleece material that would be perfect for a stuffed animal.  And I'm not sure why I decided a stuffed monster with a mustache would be the perfect thing to make, but I did.  So here he is:

Lothario, fresh from the sewing machine.

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / STRIPES!! my first quilt on: August 28, 2005 10:08:44 PM
So I saw a quilt similar to this in a catalog, and I loved it, but didn't want to pay for it.  So I decided to try to make my own.  I've never made a quilt before, and just kinda figured it out as a went along.  It's queen sized to fit my bed.  I think it turned out pretty well for a first quilt.  

On my bed:

let me know what you think!!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Yeah, I made a shrug too... on: August 19, 2005 09:43:07 PM
So I made a shrug a couple of months ago using vysews dropstitch shrug pattern.  But I decided that I needed a plain black one that would go with more shirts.  So after looking at many different patterns and not finding one exactly like i wanted, so i just went ahead and figured one out myself.  I used Red Heart plush yarn, which is super soft.  I love it!
