21  I pretty much rock the sewing machine now... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by spurtiic on: October 17, 2007 09:58:29 PM
So, it's not my sewing machine.  It's a friend's.  I've been taking good care of it for the better part of a year now though.   Cheesy  It lives happily in my living room the majority of the time. 

I'm not a sewing genius like you guys.  I just stick some fabric under the foot and hope for a straight line, but lately I've been making these "draft dodgers" (no idea what else they're called) that you put in the door to block cool air from coming in. 

Here's one I made and stuffed with some kitty litter that I kept in the backseat of my car for 2 months.  Yeah, I'm that lazy.  People keep asking me if I got a cat. 

I made about half a dozen others with various material, some home decor fabric, but I stuffed all of those with my recycled plastic grocery bags but the kitty litter is much heavier and nicer than bags (less noisy, too... and less bulky!). 

Do you guys have suggestions on what else I could place in there?  I think I'm going to make these for a craft fair b/c they're fast and cheap to make and practical, so I think they'll sell.  I can't use sand b/c I can't buy that here.  Kitty litter tends to "dust" everywhere, even when I double up on the fabric.

Okay...comment away!  Thanks for being amazed  Wink

22  "mmm boobs"... in Crochet: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: September 15, 2007 12:20:00 PM
Is what my best friend says anytime he sees boobs.  So, naturally, when I visited him last week in the great NW I had a gift for his keyboard.  A breasty keyboard dust cover...

The nipples are the best spot to pinch and lift it off the keyboard.  I stuffed the boobs with polyfil from an overstuffed pillow.  It's nothing fancy but it was my first try at a non-scarf crocheted item.

Okay, I decided to try this during an ep of Sex and the City.  I got lazy with it and didn't feel like changing yarn colors and I only used what yarn was in the bag next to me (I literally didn't want to get off of the couch).  It took me longer than I thought and I've never crocheted anything w/o a pattern, but overall, I didn't think it turned out too bad.    I also scanned it instead of taking a photo of it... also much easier. ha ha

25  not so much a kitty bed in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: May 10, 2007 08:17:22 PM
well, this started out as a kitty bed but i was too involved in television to pay attention and i kept knitting rows.  it was supposed to be made in 'oceanic' colors for a gift, but it came out looking... not very watery looking at all. so, it sat in a drawer for about three months and i thought of all the people who would like these colors and no one came to mind until i saw my grandpa over the weekend. his bedroom has these colors in it and, well, you know grandpas, they're all about the naps.

without further ado...

and pay no attention to the two strands of yarn hanging out at the bottom.  that was also television's fault.  Tongue

27  Tax String and Plastic Bag Totes in Crochet: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: April 10, 2007 09:03:21 AM
My friends, Lissa and Carrie, reuse and recycle everything.  We always have craft days where we spend the day stabbing ourselves with needles, cramping our hands from crocheting or knitting, and overdosing on Pepsi.

Here's the results from last week's Craft Day:

Here's the bag Lissa made with collected strings from Tax Form bundles (she spent the morning tying 10" strings in knots)...

Here's the bag Carrie crocheted with a ginormous hook and complained all day that her hands hurt really bad (ha ha). She spent the morning cutting plastic bags up and looping them together to make plastic yarn

Though the bag doesn't hold it's shape when not held, it makes everything feel tons lighter.  We tested this out by putting 6 cans of food inside of it and you could swear you were only holding 3 cans of food.  Roll Eyes

28  Another needle roll in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: April 10, 2007 08:54:00 AM
This was my first attempt at sewing and I couldn't find the "really sucky sewer" thread, so I'm posting it here since it is, after all, a needle roll for my knitting sticks!

Of course this is not all of my needles. It's only what I had on hand at my friend's house.  The flap is open but the deck and the flap are both brown.  It's kind of a Where's Waldo with the fabric.

And here's my friend Lissa who let me kill use her sewing machine. She is holding a "tax thread" crocheted tote she made on our "craft day."  She literally had hundreds of 10" string that was used to bundle the tax forms and tied them in knots together then crocheted this sucker.  Anyway, inside you can see my awesome needle roll  Wink

Ooh, could you share the pattern?  I am new to crochet and everything I make w/o a pattern looks retarded. Well, even with the pattern it comes out wonky.  Anyway, awesome job on Shake.  I can't wait to see your Frylock and Meatwad! You should do a Carl, too! Then a Boxy Brown... Smiley

PS- If you highlight "https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=75693" and click the icon on the post that looks like a picture, it will make it an image.
OR since you used the craftster picture hosting, it gives you the image insert that reads something like [ img ] then your link followed by more [ / img ].

But here's your pic anyway  Cheesy

30  resintastic times in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by spurtiic on: February 24, 2007 02:06:55 PM
Though some of these look like they have bubbles, they do not.  It's just the crappy cam quality.  I threw away the one that had bubbles in it (and it was the coolest one, too, grah).  One image is one I designed and the rest are either origami or scrapbook paper.

Anyway, these will become pendants with a sterling silver bail and be donated to my agency's fund raiser next week.  I'm not the most experienced resin maker, but it's fun nonetheless (and smelly).

Less talk, more ac-tion:

This one was really hard to capture.  It's hard to see in the pic, but looking at it it's obvious it's a little boy standing over a little girl in a skirt playing in the grass.  The light washed it out a lot. 

What do you all think?  Donation to the agency or donation to the garbage man??
