11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / wrist band frenzy! on: April 16, 2004 02:41:13 AM
So we finally got a digital camera!!! Get ready for a bombardment of pics... Grin

These are part of my latest money spinning idea. I would love to know what you think of them. Good or bad, I don't mind. There's always room for improvement...

These are made out of cuffs from jumpers I've felted and various crochet flowers, beads and appliques

Then I bought some felt and snaps for more funky colours and so they'd look more 'uniformed'. (haven't attached most of the snaps yet, but you get the idea)

and here's a close up of some

edit: ok, so the colours are a bit funny... the close up pic shows the truest colours. They're really bright and colourful anyway.  Roll Eyes
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / latest camel crochet fashion... on: April 11, 2004 09:36:12 AM
Sorry to be so silly, but this picture made me laugh...

So if you're off on holiday to camel inhabited areas maybe you could whip up a few before you go and use as trading tools...for added flare use pastelly colours and attach some flowers and such....  Grin
13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Imagebank - in the form of dingbats!! on: February 06, 2004 11:12:10 AM
Not quite sure where to post this, but here it is. I'm really excited about just finding this font site where I did a search for 'dingbat', scrolled down to the bottom of the page, and there are all the categories of dingbats!  
There's all kinds of images, from TV characters to ancient runes, all downloadable for PC and Mac (most of them OSX, though).
For stencilling, appliquing, vinyl-cut-outs, screen printing or whatever, these are brilliant!! And because they're a font/vector, resolution is not an issue! And they're free!!! Love it! Can't wait to restart Illustrator and see what they're actually like!

So here you go:

Hmmm, sounds like I'm trying to sell you certain smelly bottles... Wink  sorry, just really excited about it.. Cheesy

Just thought I'd share this Valentine project...
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first proper handbag! on: January 26, 2004 05:36:33 AM
So I had to try Jordy's fab tutorial like everyone else, and this is what it resulted in. It's quite small (ca 11x14 cm) so probably good for glamorous nights out...  Smiley
I've had a photocopy of the pattern on the front lying around for years, and finally got a chance to use it for something... Traced it and machine embroidered it.  Made the strap differently, with two strips of fabric and interfacing sewn together and turned inside out, then embellished with pink seams. Might attach a snap for closing later as it's 'bulging' a bit.

ETA: The lining isn't as red as it looks, it's more purplish...

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 3 more little purses on: January 25, 2004 08:38:50 AM
So here's 3 more. Same size as the other little one I posted earlier... Will try to sell them, but if it doesn't happen at least I've got a purse for every possible occasion...  Smiley

17  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / magazine vases... on: January 25, 2004 01:48:14 AM
Was wandering around town yesterday and saw these in a shop window. Thought I had to share... They're made out of folded magazine pages (ca 1/2 cm wide) and glued together. Paper isn't really my thing, so not sure just how I'd go about it, but I'm sure you clever people would have no problems recreating this...  Wink

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / one little purse... on: January 23, 2004 11:19:59 AM
I am a felting freak and make blankets, scarves,  mittens, hot water bottle covers, cushions, hats etc etc... Once in a while they (the old sweaters) go reeeaally thick and then I make handbags and purses out of them (no need for interfacing!) Here's one I made earlier! Kinda Valentiney come to think of it...

19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / super easy scarf! on: January 22, 2004 08:43:49 AM
Me again.., thought I'd share the easiest and quickest scarf I've ever made. It's done lengthways with double crochet ( ...I think you call it), to get the stripes to go in that direction.  Used a no. 9 hook and some chunky soft wool. What took the longest was the tassels!
So even if all you know is one type of stitch (...) you can still create something comfy and useful!

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / In yer face purse on: January 22, 2004 05:34:55 AM
So... this is my first post... I've (re)started crochet lately and am completely addicted. Mostly thanks to the inspiration I've gotten from admiring you people from afar for a few months!! Someone on here mentioned Photobucket (thank you!) so I registered and voila! So easy and so quick and here's my first contribution:
