1  Sari-inspired scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Messily on: June 03, 2005 12:12:10 PM
I found this lovely light aqua ribbon yarn with silver threads running through it, which reminded me of sari fabric.  I made a skinny drop-stitch scarf:

Neither photo really does it justice, but the color is much more accurate in the second one.

I bought two skeins and the scarf only took up one, so now I need to find some sort of bag/accessory pattern for the second one.  Any suggestions?

4  Gashlycrumb Tinies pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Messily on: May 14, 2005 04:32:15 PM
I made this pillow for the Edward Gorey swap.  At first I'd tried to embroider the picture, but there was too much detail for the cloth to handle, and it ripped.  So I got some more cloth, blew up the picture in Photoshop, and half traced/half hand-copied the design using Marvy Uchida fabric markers.

The back of the pillow is black velvet, and it's stuffed with a pillow form.  I'm still afraid of my sewing machine, so the whole thing is handsewn.   Roll Eyes  It was really fun to make!  It's the first pillow I've ever made, and the first sewing I've done in about ten years, but now I'm ready to try more.

5  Preppy Stegosaurus in Needlework: Completed Projects by Messily on: April 25, 2005 11:23:16 AM
My take on the pink-and-green trend:

I hand-drew the pattern after looking at a few different stegosaurus pictures on the internet, but I also improvised quite a bit as I went.  I like embroidering useful things (I still don't know what one is supposed to do with a tea towel), but that canvas is a bitch to sew through.  My fingers got really sore.

At long last, here is a picture of the awesome stuff that Tinapickles sent me!

Sorry for the delay... we ended up buying a new digital camera and it takes quite a bit to convince my boyfriend to part with it for even a minute.  Smiley  Thanks again, Tinapickles!

I got a fantastic package from Hambucket today!

She made a fantastic bag, a zippered pouch, and a super-cute necklace and earrings set!  My roommate's cat Frankie tried to steal the jewelry:

Thank you so much, Hambucket!  Your stuff is so amazing!  Now I just hope you're not too disappointed with what I sent you...
