11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Sweater and Booties on: May 06, 2011 05:38:17 PM
I knitted these as a baby shower present for a friend of mine who is expecting. The sweater is Knitting Pure and Simple's Easy Baby Cardigan . I liked it because there was no seaming.

I had some left over yarn so I made the booties.

I made the sweater in the 12 month size because I wanted it to fit during the winter, but since I did not remember ever seeing a 12 month old in booties, they are smaller. Hopefully, it is OK that the sweater and booties match but will probably not fit the baby at the same time  Tongue
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Brocade Purse on: March 08, 2011 01:27:21 PM
I made this bag as part of the make a purse and fill it swap
Purses are one of my favorite things to make and I had a lot of fun putting this one together. This purse is made from an original pattern and it has a magnetic closure.

The front of the bag: It has two outside pockets on the front. 


The back:


The inside lining: The inside has a zippered, pocket that was padded. It was designed to hold my partner's eReader.


A little picture of show off the strap. The strap has a little slider so that it can be adjusted and worn as a shoulder purse or an across the body bag.
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Buddha Pendant on: March 06, 2011 10:10:04 PM
I made this Buddha pendant as part of a swap. It was inspired by a Scrabble tile pendent my partner hand on her wist. The pendant has a little bit of dimension because the Buddha is actually a shrinky-dink that I decoupaged and glued to the wooden back.



I used Glossy Accents to make it shiny and I think it turned out OK, but I felt like maybe there is a trick to using it that I had not figured out yet . If anyone has any suggestions/advice I would love to hear them.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What size to make baby sweater? on: March 05, 2011 10:44:10 AM
A friend of mine is expecting and I would like to knit a Knitting Pure and Simple Easy Baby Cardigan for her. My problem is that I am not sure what size to make it. The baby is due in June and I would like her/him to be able to wear the sweater during her/his first winter. The pattern has options for newborn, 6 months, 12 months & 18 months corresponding to chests of 18, 20, 22, 24 inches and length of 9, 10, 11, and 12 inches.
I tried to look at size charts to see whether or not the average 6 month old fit into 6 month old clothing or even whether the 6 month size of this pattern is the typical 6 month clothing size; but I was having trouble figuring it all out. Huh
I was hoping that maybe someone who has had children or knit for children or maybe even knit this cardigan could help me. I have never made baby clothing before and I would really like this to be a usable garment.
Thanks
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Snowman Table Runner on: December 21, 2010 11:15:01 AM
When I saw this table runner I thought it was so cute that I needed to make one for my mom for Christmas. I did not have a pattern, but I still think it turned out pretty well.

Details of the snowman's face.

The faces were good for practicing my french knots, which I think I am finally getting OK at.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Discworld's Death on a Credit Card Wallet on: October 12, 2010 04:24:48 PM
I made this credit card wallet for the Two Tiny Terry Pratchett Things Swap .
One of my partner's favorite Discworld characters was Death. So I decided to create a cross-stitch pattern that featured him and one of his friends  Wink.


The front is just plain, to show off the fabric, which I thought was really pretty.


The inside features two compartments for credit cards, and it closes with a magnetic clasp.


Thanks to yonorris14 whose tutorial made the whole thing go much smoother than it would had I had to design from scratch.
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Turtle T-Shirt on: September 21, 2010 08:41:07 PM
I bought a $2 t-shirt the other day because, well it was two dollars. It fit well and I liked the color, but it was very plain. So I decided I needed to do something to spruce it up a bit.
I decided to try my hand at embroidery.  I have been cross-stitching for some time now and embroidery seemed like the next step. I found a cute little turtle picture from an online coloring page and set to work.
 
He turned out so cute that now I actually kind of love this shirt! Cheesy
Behold the cuteness:

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Denim Pinafore (aka: jumper dress) on: August 04, 2010 05:55:29 PM
I have had this piece of light denim fabric for a while and had been trying to decide on the perfect thing to make with it. I am usually nervous when it comes to making clothing as my tendency to attempt to dive in without a pattern can lead to less than optimal results. However when I saw the "pattern" xxboheme used to create her super cute pinafore (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99176.0) I knew that that was the project for me. I ended up adding darts to the back (a first for me) to make it fit closer to the body.

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My First Sweater on: August 04, 2010 05:39:45 PM
Temperatures are reaching record highs. Children are running through sprinklers. Summer is completely underway. So of course now is the time when I finish my first knitted sweater. I just learned to knit a few months ago and after making a scarf and a few hats I decided I needed to knit a sweater, even if it would be a while before the weather would permit me to wear it. I choose Jenna Adorno's tempting (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTtempting.html). It is 2x2 completely in the round. I modified the neckline because I could not really see myself wearing something off the shoulder. Here is the result.


20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Picnic Basket (pic heavy) on: July 09, 2010 02:27:49 PM
I put this picnic basket together as a wedding gift for a friend of mine.

I sewed the lining with pockets for cups and plates.
On the right side are napkin-cutlery holders made using the tutorial from this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350855.0.

Here you can see the napkin-cutlery holder in action

Then it rolls up with a pretty ribbon to fit in the basket

The basket also contained a coordinating picnic blanket

I used a vinyl tablecloth for the back of the blanket so that it could stand up to grass and dirt

The process took a little more effort then I had anticipated. But I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
