1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Leather Bat Bow Hairclip on: July 20, 2014 12:38:08 PM
Wasn't sure which board to post this on...

but yeah, here is a simple hairclip I did in leather.  Smiley

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Baby jackalope monster creature thingies on: March 14, 2014 02:58:58 PM
I made the white one about two years ago, and the other ones a while after that... I just never got around to posting them...  Wink

I can't decide if I should put antlers on the other ones too, I started making some...but I might just leave them as they are...

3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Medieval dress on: July 31, 2011 01:03:34 PM
Made this for a medieval festival that I'm going to next week. It's my first time going and my first time sewing any kind of clothes... but the people I'm going with go every year and always dress up for it, so I figured I'd give it a try! Smiley
I opted for a pretty simple dress... It's made in blue linen and machine sewn, except for the lacing holes which I did by hand...

(sorry for the crappy lighting)

With light blue underneath (This picture shows the colour the best)

And with white, so I can change it up a little...

Comments and critiques are greatly appreciated!

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / leather pouch on: June 10, 2011 05:17:03 PM

This is also for the Renaissance fair/Medieval festival that I'm going to in August...
Just a simple drawstring pouch in leather... I'm not sure how well it will go with my dress, but i love how the black and red looks together!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / leather bag on: June 10, 2011 05:09:25 PM

I'm going to a Renaissance fair/Medieval festival for a week in August... so I'm making a costume to wear. I'm going to make a blue linen dress...but I've been putting it off because I'm no good at sewing clothes and because I'm waiting for my friend to lend me her dress pattern first... Anyway the dress won't have any pockets, so I made a bag that I can wear on my belt...

It's my first time working with leather and I had a lot of fun with it!

Closeup of the pattern:

(Not really going for historical accuracy, I just made a pattern that I thought looked sort of medieval...)  Wink
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / frames on: April 11, 2011 10:30:18 AM
I've started making a new pair of socks, but they're giving me some trouble... so I needed a break and wanted to do something fun and easy with instant gratification! Smiley

Someone on here (can't remember who) posted a link to the pattern for these frames a while ago (http://lolanovablog.blogspot.com/2010/10/mary-go-round-crochet-flower-ring.html) and I wanted to try it!

Super easy and so much fun! I was going to make one, but ended up making 4 of them cause I just couldn't stop Wink

Here they are up on my wall with all my other stuff...

And some close-ups...

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Baby Jackalope on: March 09, 2011 03:17:33 PM
This is the first crochet project I ever started and the second one that I finish (I got sidetracked and made this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371827.0)

It took me a while, but now he is finally done!

When I decided I wanted to do an amigurumi I looked around for free patterns, but couldn't find anything that I really wanted to do... Eventually I found a picture of a bunny with teeth that I thought was cute... but I didn't have a pattern for it...so instead I sort of winged it! I borrowed bits and pieces from loads of different free patterns online, and some of it I made up as I went along...

When he was almost finished I felt something was missing, so I decided he needed antlers!

Thinking back it would have been so much easier to just follow one pattern, but I think I learned a lot this way! Wink

There's definitely some mistakes on him, but I think I've managed to cover them up pretty nicely... and I'm super happy with the end result!  Grin
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Christmas socks on: February 03, 2011 03:09:21 PM
Just some Christmas socks I made for my grandmother this year...

When I was about 12 we had to knit something in school... so I made a pair of socks for my dad... and apparently I make a quality product because he has had them for almost 15 years Wink (or maybe he just didn't were them very often)
anyway... this year they had finally been worn out, so for Christmas he asked me if I could make him a new pair... I hadn't knitted anything at all since then, but I figured it'd be fun to learn it again...

so I made these for him:

kinda simple...but that's what he wanted... (they look kinda lumpy in that photo, but they looked better on)

They didn't take as long to complete as I had thought...so I still had some time left before Christmas, so I made another pair for my grandmother...
But this time I decided to do something with a pattern, because just making them in one colour got kinda boring after a while... She likes traditional Christmas patterns, so I made these for her... (pictured above)
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Spike doll on: February 01, 2011 05:03:58 PM
I just learned how to knit before Christmas (making socks as Christmas presents) and when I was done with that I figured I wanted to teach myself how to crochet too...
I started making a Monty Python style bunny and it was going pretty well, but then I saw this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370219.0 here on craftster and got inspired...

My friends birthday is this week and she's mentioned to me before that she wants a Spike doll (from Buffy)... so I decided to put my other project aside for now and make her one!

Just like Anne11 I used a pattern from Crafty is cool http://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftyisCool (the Jimmy Kimmel one) and made a few changes to it...

So here is my first finished crochet project, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!
Thanks for looking!
