1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cat Litter Cabinet and Feeding Station on: December 27, 2009 12:51:33 PM
First I want to point out that my inspiration for this project came from this post here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291147.0 - Thank you very much!

I went to a resale store where leftover construction stuff is sold for cheap and I got this double cabinet and a piece of counter top for $50. The counter top is too big (as you can see), but being lazy and not very construction savvy, I just left it and I use the overhang for storage of food, litter, an carrying cases for kitties. Inside there is 2 large litter pans and a hole was cut out of the back for easy access. The hole that you can see in the front at the bottom was already there - part of the reason it was in that store to begin with. I am thinking of making a little "skirt" or something to hide it, but I'm not sure if that would just collect more cat hair and look bad or not.

And the picture!

I don't know why the thumbnail isn't working. I couldn't use Craftster photo hosting because it's not letting me upload anything at the moment. I'll try it again a little later on.
Nevermind! Fixed it.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Patriotic Poppet on: June 25, 2009 05:37:00 PM
I made this for the Friends of Craftster Raffle swap USA version. The theme was red, white, and you, so I made a patriotic poppet. I think she came out pretty good. I'm not super happy with her hair, but I'm never happy with my poppet's hair. I'm really happy with her dress and apron-they came out much cuter than I thought they would. I hope you guys like her too.

Join the Poppet Along.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Japanese Knot Bag (Reversible) on: May 03, 2009 11:00:25 PM
While I was browsing around online today I came across this tutorial for a Japanese Knot Bag. The instructions and pattern seemed simple enough, so I printed it out and got to work. It was pretty simple and while it was a little smaller than I thought it would be I really love it. I am going to pack some stuff in it and start carrying it around.

The Outside

Reversed - I probably would have used this fabric for the outside, but I didn't have enough fabric to make a matching bottom, so it became the lining.

Here is the bag knotted.

Here is the original design: Show Me Your Workings
Here is another site I used that has photos of each step for further clarification: Curiosities 808
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pink & Blue Bunnies on: April 12, 2009 11:35:57 PM
I made these to send to some penpals. I guess they are just in time for Easter, although by the time they arrive, Easter will be over. That's ok though. I think they came out pretty cute. I don't really know a lot about embroidery, but the nose and mouth came out ok. The only thing I wish I did was add a tail, but I totally forgot.

These were so quick and easy to make. I like things that I can just bust out in one sitting.  Smiley
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Netbook Bag Envelope Style on: March 02, 2009 06:36:29 PM
First I want to give thanks to this tutorial. It really helped me figure out to how to do a lining. Even though the tute is for a zipper bag, I just replaced the zipper with a flap.

This is only my 2nd bag that I've made without a pattern. I'm especially pleased with how the flap came out since I just winged it. I also added some batting on the inside to make the bag a little more protective of the netbook (it's a Dell Mini 9). The only thing I have left to do is add a closure. I was thinking about a button or something, but I don't have any in my stash that are big enough.

What do you think? Any other ideas for a closure besides a button? Input appreciated.  Smiley
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Doll Scarf (1st crochet project) on: January 20, 2009 05:46:19 PM
OK, so actually it's my 2nd, but my 1st...well, I'd rather not talk about it.  Tongue

It's a little curly-I guess I'm not quite sure how to control tension yet. I know this is so plain and simple, but I have to be honest-I'm just so proud of it! I really hope to be able to make amigurumis some day, but this is a nice start-at least I finished it.

It will go to a swap partner (not the deer, he's just the model).
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Simple Kitty Cat on: September 03, 2008 04:03:14 PM
This my third complete cross-stitch. I have started with really small projects in order to gain some confidence. This was a kids "learn to craft" project. I thought it was cute, so I did it myself.  Smiley

Being a project for a kid, it was really simple. I didn't like how a lot of the line work went either, but I went ahead and just followed the pattern. It looks a little messy to me, but I still think it's cute.

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mary Engelbreit "Flower Pot" on: June 29, 2008 03:26:20 PM
This is my 2nd time completing a cross-stitch. It came in a little kit that included everything needed to complete the design. I didn't really like all the outlining at the end, but it really would have looked incomplete without it. The floss included in this kit was terrible-even as a beginner I could tell it was poor quality, but I still managed to get it finished. I know there are some mistakes-some by accident, some on purpose because I'm lazy, but it's ok.

Alright, enough rambling-here is the product.

By the way, this was also my first experience with french knots-fun!  Smiley
9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / PM Pop Ups... on: June 10, 2008 06:21:24 PM
(I hope this is where this goes.)

I have my preferences set to notify me with a pop up when I get a new PM, but lately, I haven't been getting it. It always worked in the past, whether I was already on Craftster or just arriving to the site.

Just a few minutes ago I received a new message, but I only noticed because of the  "Hello KiwiDragons! You have 1 unread Personal Messages." message. Is this just me? Thanks for help!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 1st Cross Stich - Flower on: May 20, 2008 07:53:12 PM
A lady I work with does a lot of cross stitch and other needlework and when I expressed interest, she brought me a mini kit (made my DMC) to try my hand at. I'm sure others could have completed this in no time, but it took me quite a few hours. I'm still really happy with how it turned out. She brought me another one (this time my Mary Engelbreit) to try, but I haven't had time to get started on it yet.
