I recieved my package from Jexxican earlier this week! I would've posted earlier but I've been working a ton.

Yarn of my favorite colors.

A spindle! I'm wicked amped on that. I've been searching around the interwebs for different ways to color yarn.

Thanks, jexxican. I love my package.

3  Rolled Fabric Rosette Shoe Clips in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hellzapopper on: January 09, 2012 10:37:56 PM
I've been really in to making hair accessories, but I snagged some great clips so I whipped these puppies up! I used a shimmery polyester fabric and the clips are nickel plated. I was a little iffy about them but they're very sturdy.

I made more in other colors, but I haven't photographed them.

5  Colorful Handmade Crayons with Tutorial in Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: August 16, 2011 10:25:45 PM
I've been making these for an eternity now, but I've always made them to give to people. I was watching a friend's children the other night, so I thought I'd do it with them. They were pretty amped.

I like to use crayola because they're just the best.

1. First you wanna peel the wrapper off your crayons. That was the least favorite part with the little ones. The paper can be pretty stuck to the crayon, but with the three of us we got it done in no time.

2. I break one crayon up into 3 or 4 small pieces, so they fit in the cups better. I also think it's a good idea to color coordinate them in 4 separate containers, so they can get a good idea which colors go best with each other.

3. These ones were made with mini cupcake tins. Line each one with liners.

4. Put about four or five pieces of crayon in each cup. Whichever colors you choose. You can fill them pretty high. I like 'em thin just for aesthetics.

5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 to 10 minutes. Then let them cool.

6. Peel and draw!

Putting them in the frigidaire speeds up the drying process tremendously. Like, 5 minutes and they're ready to go! Also, you don't NEED the liners, it's just a pain cleaning the pain when you go without. I think they look cute with the liners. The littlest one said 'can I eat one now?' Like little candies.

8  Chunky Crochet Newborn Hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: June 08, 2011 03:20:08 PM
These adorable little hats were made while I was sitting at the coffee shop under the blasting sun this weekend. They're hand crochet'd with one of my original patterns. They were made with homespun yarn. That's one of my favorite yarns. The green and white ones were made with an acrylic wool blend. Accented with vintage plastic buttons and flowers. They fit 0-3 months and the one with the flower is 3-6 months. These are the best to make when you don't have quite enough yarn for an adult size hat.

9  Newborn Beanies with Brims and Flowers in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: May 18, 2011 01:02:31 PM
Hats, Hats, hats. I crochet'd the top two with chunky yarn and accented them with little flowers. I didn't use a pattern for the flowers and leaves, but you can find a million similar ones on ravelry. The bottom are worsted weight soft acrylic yarn. The ones with the brim are my favorite. I think they look so cute. They're made for 0 - 6 month old little ones. I love making baby hats because it gives me something to do with the balls of yarn that are a bit too small for adult size hats.

10  Crochet'd Lace Cellphone Cozies in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hellzapopper on: May 18, 2011 12:55:58 PM
I'v been crocheting for quite some time now but I just never got the hang out thread until recently. I've been making cases for gadgets and I wanted to make some fancy one so that made me actually pick up the lace. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't sooo bad. These are what I came up with. I'm not sure the the size of the thread. All of them are made with a solid shell stitch and used a smaller hook than I should've so it be super tight and solid. Accented with vintage buttons.
