1  Re: Kirsten Dunst Pithy hat knitalong anyone? in Knitalongs by qbmaya on: October 16, 2006 06:26:51 PM
So, after my 3rd try, I came to the conclusion that I should knit on size 8's instead of 9's and stop around 8.5-9".  I am very happy with my hat.

The one in the movie didn't sag as much as the pattern calls for... or maybe I just have a small head.

My partner is out of town, so I don't know when these are going to get posted.  Granted, they are kinda granny-ish, I still like them.

I used the Flora pattern on Knitty.com to make the petals, then I kind of made it up as I went along.

I think I've been flaked on and unfortunately, I took bad pics of what I made.  O, well, here they are...

She liked 100 Bullets, so I started with a messenger bag.  It is made w/ leftover black corduroy, purple satin-like lining fabric, and a pillowcase I got at a garage sale.  The image is ironed on to the pillowcase.  I wanted to add beads and stuff, but I didn't want to do an overkill.

This is the inside, where I added a small pocket and half-assed some pencil holders.  I love corduroy because the fabric is so forgiving of mistakes.

Next, we both agreed, that Kabuki, by David Mack is awesome, so I took one of the many craftster tutorials (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14604) and made a bag from that.

I had some patel purple flannel fabric around that I liberated from my mother years ago and never got around to using.  Although the pic is bad, and you can't really see it, I tied the fabric and over dyed 2x it w/ a slate blue and magenta and it looked awesome.  Finally, I lined it with material I bought in Chinatown, to give it an asian feel.

I also made a packing tape wallet (which I can't find the pics of) with printouts from Ghostworld.  You'll just have to trust me when I say that it was awesome, cause goodness know, I wanted to keep all of them for myself.

On a final note, those Iron on printer pages are my new favorite craft item.  Depending on which you get, they can turn the most basic of cottons into a vinyl-like material.  So, yeah... that's it. Wink

So, I've been complaining about how dificult this project has been, but now I'm hooked.  Once I turned the heel and started seeing an end, I got motivated.  Here's my progress so far.  (My skin isn't that bad.  My cell phone just takes icky pics. Huh)

The question is, will I be embarking on the journey or creating a 2nd one?  Undecided

Heroinechic sent me this awesome collection of stuff...

I was so excited that I just dumped it.  There was Altoid tins, fabric, flat glass marbles (which I freakin love!), ribbons, foil, glue... it goes on and on.

Thanks again!;)

It's quite awesome really.  Wink

So, Bridgetbarcode got mine, so I guess that I can post this crappy cellphone cam pic (my battery would decide to die the morning of the 18th  Angry):

So many things came up and I wanted to add more detail, but overall I am happy with it and I hope that my partner is too.  Roll Eyes

P.S. That's my mom modeling.

The Long Halloween got me back into Batman after a 10 year break.  Anything with that cover gets an A+ from me.

Well, I knit this blanket a little while ago and it is quite repetitive.  But, the important thing is that my friend loved it.  Here it is!

I knit it in a cheap acrylic, so the other side has a green cotton lining on it so it can stil be warm, but washable.

Here's my baby.  I bought it because my mother's was acting up.  Not knowing anything, I bought the next generation of the one she has for $30 off of Craigslist.  It works like a charm and it was at least 3rd hand.  Here she is:

The doll was actually made by my mother on her's, but she's covering some off the mess in the background (like the medical waste for my diabetes  Embarrassed).
