1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I'm just a sweet (knitted) Transvestite... on: April 27, 2015 09:55:47 AM

I'm so insanely proud of how he turned out.

I put a lot of thought into the details all over him. Photos with explanations because I know you guys will appreciate them. Smiley

I'm so proud of how his face turned out.  His nose is knitted, his eyes and brows are printed out from a photo of Tim Curry, which I then colored over with Prismacolors and sealed.  His lips are puffy paint.  His eyelashes I'm particularly proud of.  I tried so many different materials - ribbon, fabric, netting - before realizing that corduroy has those strings that fray out when you sew it.  So I just removed about 10 of those strands and was left with only the threads going in the other direction, which I cut off and glued to his face.  They turned out great!

His shoes are made Model Magic, which I wrapped around some coffee stirrers to get the heel and then molded to his foot.  When they were dry I sprayed them with spray glue and covered them in black glitter.

The pins and patches are all the original ones from his jacket in the movie.  Thanks to this awesome site (http://www.moviejackets.com/frank.php) I was able print out the pins very very teeny on paper which I sealed with packing tape, and the patches are printed onto fabric.

His jacket has a working separate zipper and he has a sparkly corset underneath.

His tattoo has been embroidered on.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Feed Me, Seymour! on: December 03, 2012 01:24:00 AM
This is the first project I've posted in years and years (not that I stopped crafting, just got lax on the project posting) but I was so proud of how this turned out that I had to show my fellow crafters.

This is my first ever finished embroidery piece.  It is, of course, Audrey 2 from Little Shop of Horrors.  It took me forever (especially since now I have a doggie and he likes to try and eat the thread).  But now I can't wait to do another.

My favorite detail is the metallic red thread in the pools of blood to make it glisten!

Feed Me, Seymour!

P.S. I traced the shape from an illustration but the colors and detailing are mine!

4  COOKING / Dessert / my rainbow cake!! on: March 16, 2009 03:37:35 PM
following these http://omnomicon.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-to-make-rainbow-cake.html instructions, only baking a cake from scratch instead of cake mix and soda... i made.... RAINBOW CAKE!!!

i used a white cake recipe and gel colors.  i love the way it turned out!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a knitting milestone for me! my first pair of socks! yay!!! on: February 03, 2009 08:27:33 AM
my first pair of socks after knowing how to knit since i was like, 8 years old. Smiley

these were done from the knitty.com pattern, monkey.

she called them that because she had to finish them, as they were a monkey on her back.  i guess that's accurate, as i rushed through them... so i could start another pair!! Smiley

gosh i'm pale.

they're made in berroco ultra alpaca fine, so they're super soft.

yay socks!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / i finished! now i need advice! SOCK it to me! on: February 03, 2009 08:22:08 AM
first i apologize for the crap joke.

i just finished a pair of socks, my first pair, from the knitty pattern, monkey.

as thin yarn has a tendency to do, at one point in the second sock i ended up with a hopeless tangle, and i cut the yarn and joined it once i had untangled it.

but stupidly, i did this in the sole of the sock.

and now i have a knot on the bottom of my foot.  i had the ends weaved in before, but that was even more annoying - it was creating a little lump.  and i'm super duper conscious of it.  it may drive me mad.

so here's my thought... could i start at the side seam and basically weave through that row of stitches?  and weave the ends in on the ends?  does that make sense?  i don't imagine this is a thing that's done a lot, since it seems sorta dangerous, but this is my first pair of socks, and i'd love it if they weren't lumpy.

any ideas?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Don't be a square! Knit one! Knit SIXTEEN! Pretty Knitted Blanket! on: January 23, 2009 11:58:18 AM
this was a chanukah/birthday present for my mommy (she's a knitter too so she understands how involved something like this is!).  i got all the patterns from this book: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat2879&PRODID=prd53453.

i'm so very proud!  and she loved it! yay!

and then just extrapolated!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / berroco lucca bag that apparently NOBODY has made!! :) on: January 20, 2008 03:13:20 PM
so i'm working on this bag: http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/lucca/lucca.html

and i've already completed the front and the back.

so now i'm on the flap.

and i get the first part (follow chart 1 until 14 rows) because that chart has 14 rows.

then i get to the second part.  "follow chart 2 until 25 rows have been completed."

except that chart 2 is made up of 54 rows.

and when i look at the picture i can't see anything that goes past row 25.

and i'm horribly horribly confused.

my only thought is that the flap is double sided?  i don't know.  that makes no sense because they don't talk anywhere about those remaining 29 rows n the pattern.

i've written berroco's webmaster because they have nowhere on their page about how to ask for pattern corrections.

meanwhile i turn to you craftsters... help!!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Tale of Two Sweaters on: December 12, 2007 11:26:46 AM
so awhile ago i much wanted to knit this sweater:

it's the dollar and a half cardigan that was in the spring 2007 interweave knits.

so i ordered the yarn from knitpicks.  and it was ugly.  so i returned it and ordered different yarn. and then i knit it. and hooray for me and it's the first sweater i've EVER made... and low and behold... it was a little too small on me. 

SO... i gift it upon my younger much skinner than me sister.

and THEN i knitted it again for me.

and thus, there were then two sweaters, and it was good.
