1  Giant triangle necklace with tutorial link in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by scifibimoncon8 on: November 04, 2012 01:21:21 PM
Hello all,

After receiving numerous compliments and inquiries about a necklace that took me 15 minutes to whip up, I wrote a tutorial so everyone could share the joys of a giant minimalist metal necklace dangling from their person.

As an added bonus, the triangular shape seems to imply I am somehow a member of the Illuminati, as shouted at me by people in my neighborhood. Man, I wish. The tutorial's on the website, and if anything's unclear, please let me know and I'll do my best to clarify. Enjoy!

3  Wampa Plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by scifibimoncon8 on: July 07, 2010 06:21:54 PM

A few months back I sewed a small stuffed Wampa from felt and cloth, for no particular reason save Wampas are awesome. He stands about 5" tall. The body is cotton covered in layers of clipped felt (basic craft store variety stuff), as are the arms and horns.

The detachable detached arm is felt with red embroidery and knotted red floss strands, attached with velcro.

I wrote more about it and Wampas in general with making-of and additional pictures here. Wampas!

4  Giant Friendship Bracelet in Completed Projects by scifibimoncon8 on: July 05, 2010 01:00:13 PM
I genuinely couldn't figure out what category this would go under, as it's not specifically designed to decorate the home, doesn't fit in under the 'fiber arts' categories, and is more 'macrame' than knitting or crochet. For reasons I'm still unsure, I made a giant friendship bracelet big enough to be a floor runner. It's about 18 inches wide and 4 feet long.

It's the same exact technique normally used to make friendship bracelets (numerous strands knotted around each other to form a fabric), just using larger 'thread'. I dyed the rope myself, which, considering what a pain it was I'm rather proud of. That and I managed to get all the stains off my bathroom.

Yep, giant friendship bracelet. There are a few more photos and a longer description here, if you care to read it.

5  Linked Together Zelda Wedding Sampler in Needlework: Completed Projects by scifibimoncon8 on: July 02, 2010 04:47:25 PM
I stitched this up a while ago but just got around to creating a workable pattern from it. A friend of mine was getting married and what with his fondness for Zelda, I couldn't resist making a pun-based wedding sampler. It's stitched on black Aida 14-count cloth and measured approximately 9 x 7 inches, I think.

This is the closest picture I have to the finished and framed project; silly me, I neglected to take one last picture before sending it off. If anyone likes, the charts are available at my website. Enjoy!

Alright, here's the photos!

Here's what the body looks like knit up. In case anyone was confused by the lack of a 'front' section, you start at the back and work your way to the front, creating a neck in the middle. This is a more accurate picture for color; the others are washed out.

Some neck detail...yeah!

All finished and not blocked. I actually didn't block it, though it's a wee bit short and snug. Meh.

Here's a version I toyed around with- instead of couching the thread I tried braiding it and placing it around the neck. It looks good but I preferred the plain sweater. You know what would look awesome? If someone made a knitted ruffle. Not sure if it would look good with the chunky yarn, but ooh, ruffles!

This is the sweater I ultimately decided to go with; no neck detail.

I whipped up these little fellows as submission examples for the Luv-Able/Hug-Able show (it is stiff competition for cuteness and excellent crafty execution there). They're made of regular craft felt with wire legs.

8  Marc Bell's 'Shrimpy' stuffed toy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by scifibimoncon8 on: August 29, 2009 12:50:52 PM
Hello All,

I made this stuffed version of Marc Bell's 'Shrimpy' a while back for a friend, partly based on the story where Shrimpy encounters Brosse the Greedy Goose. At one point Shrimpy attempts to mail himself and his favorite ball to Brosse, and attains powers. Yes.

Here's my 3-D version:

...and here's the 2-D Shrimpy:

I made him out of an old Pottery Barn box, basic craft felt, and a soft yellow flannel fabric I picked up in NYC's fabric district.

9  A Cross-Stitch That Gets To The Point (NSFW) in Needlework: Completed Projects by scifibimoncon8 on: August 29, 2009 12:33:36 PM
Hello All,

A hardworking, freelancing friend of mine requested this piece; getting payment from clients is more painful than pulling teeth and this phrase is uttered quite often after hanging up the phone with them.

(here it is in progress- note that as I was visiting a more conservative area I saved the sassy language for later stitching in NYC).

I stitched it on 14-count Aida fabric over a period of a week; most of the work was done during an extensive delay at the airport and the subsequent flight (a lady on the plane expressed SHOCK I managed to sneak an embroidery needle past security. You know, in case I threatened to mildly poke someone with the dull end). The whole piece measures about 6 x 4", and I got the bird, flower and heart motif from someone else's piece in the Subversive Stitches Flickr pool.

10  TWO-Hour Sweater! in Knitalongs by scifibimoncon8 on: August 19, 2009 11:59:23 PM
Last I posted a knit-along suggestion, and it does seem it was a long time ago, it was for the much-knit 3-Hour Sweater. Imagine my surprise today in the library coming across this very vintage pattern claiming to take A WHOLE HOUR LESS TO KNIT.

"But," you query, "Everyone says the 3-Hour Sweater takes WAY more than 3 hours to knit!" Yes, but by modern conversion the TWO hour sweater would take a mere DAY to knit! You could have a sweater in your lap by the end of a particularly intense Law & Order: SVU marathon! Also, just look how darling it is:

...I totally bet I could knit that in two hours. Anyone else game?
