13  Embroidered Elephant Drawstring Pouch. (Pic Fatty!) in Needlework: Completed Projects by RazorBladeSmile on: February 24, 2009 09:38:27 AM
Hey all! It's been forever since I posted something I made for myself, hopefully I haven't forgotten how  Cheesy. I think this belongs in two categories because:
a. I embroidered it. ( Please be kind this is only my second embroidery project, and my  first time using the split stitch and the fill-in stitch.) 
b. I made the pouch.

Since the embroidered work took the longest to complete, I decided this would be the most suitable category blah blah blah...On to the pictures!

The elephant on the front was freehanded with a crayola marker, a quick wash should get rid of the outline I couldn't cover. Now for some close ups... Smiley

Not really happy about the left side of the bow  Roll Eyes

here you can see the outline from the marker.

The pouch it's self measures 8in X 7in laying flat. I love these pouches. I carry them around as purses, as you can see it has plenty of room to spare...

All cinched up and ready to go.

Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism welcome Grin

I received my final creepy from my fabulous angel GiddyUpMunky.  Grin
She reminds me of something Wensday Adam would carry around.

On to the pics! Meet Sindy my new pirate dolly.

a close up of her face, I love her button eyes and mischevious smile.

...and her cute little pet spider

Here she is in her new home, on top of my bookshelf, which is on my craft table.

 (as you can see behind her she came with one of her friends!)

She was definitely worth the wait I love everything about her, plus she is super soft!
The card she sent was great too,  when I saw how she wrote my name (Wendy Darling) I knew it had to have something to do with pirates!

17  Having Issues with an 8" Granny... in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by RazorBladeSmile on: January 02, 2009 08:41:12 AM
Warning: these questions are ignorant... Roll Eyes

Problem number one...How do you measure a granny square? I followed an 8 inch pattern and came out with the following:

5 1/2 inches... Is this how you measure them? (please don't mind the un-weaved ends, this is a practice square  Grin)

Another issue, when you sl st to join the row,  and chain up to make your first stitch on the new row, how do you keep from getting ugly gaps like so...

Do I turn on each row to keep from ugly gaps?

I have done about four different 8" square patterns and they all come out at 5 1/2"... I am using the recommended yarn weight and needle size for each practice run, but they are all coming out way below 8"... So either the patterns gauge is not right or I am missing a whole lot of something!

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks for your time!

20  I made my own christmas tree....from dollar tree items! IMG HEAVY! in Winter Holidays by RazorBladeSmile on: November 30, 2008 12:24:04 PM
Back story(motivation)...
The boy and I are living with my dad at the moment due to some unfortunate events, the top priority was my dads bad health, the underlying issue is we are in the process of house hunting, which has been put on hold... Of course all of my stuff is in storage and there is no way I could possibly find my tree. Instead of buying a Christmas tree which are majorly overpriced or buying a real tree (which is senseless in so many ways...I won't go into that) I made my own and it only cost 5 bucks!  Grin

On to pictures!
Materials used:

-3 bundles of pine garland 15 ft each
-1 yard spike with tacky greeting on front
-floral foam
- I already had the Christmas basket
Not pictured:
-glue gun
Step 1:

separate the yard spike from the greeting, which was surprisingly easy since it was stapled...

Step 2 & 3 (gets messy):

cut  2 of the bundles of garland into diffrent lengths (longer pieces for the bottom, shorter for the top)
after they are all cut, twist two pieces together, which are of similar length then bend the ends down so it looks like an l at the bottom
I would suggest doing the cutting somewhere it can be swept or vacced easily the little boogers are static charged so they stick to everything including unshaved legs!  Cheesy

Step 4:

Hot glue to the stake you need about 4 twisted branches one for each side, even the thin side of the stake... you need about 5 tiers

Here's an image of it with all the tiers glued

He still looks ugly!

Step 5:

take the third bundle of garland and wrap it in between the branches to cover the stake and form the top of the tree, then shape the tree to your liking...

Step 6:
Shove the stake in the floral foam and place in basket...and TA-DA your very own Christmas tree!

Enjoy and thanks for looking! I'd love to see others takes on this  Grin

Please excuse the mess we are still getting settled
