1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Picnic Coin Purse! on: December 01, 2012 12:01:05 AM
This is my first ever dabble with frames and gluing [oh, the horror...]

I lost my coin purse, and didn't have a spare one, so I decided I just have to make myself a new one! It turned out quite big, although this is actually the smallest frame I found. The fabric is a scrap I bought for about 2 dollars from a really expensive fabric store - usually it would cost me a small fortune! You gotta love scrap hunting  Cheesy

anyway, enough talk: the purse!

and a better view of the fabric:

and the other side [the pattern grows smaller!]

aaaaand finally, the lining! Which is why I think it's very picnic-like:

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crochet hooks organizer on: October 13, 2012 06:16:27 PM
I'm pretty new to posting on the forums, so I hope it's the right board to post this  Tongue

I was getting tired of having nowhere convenient to put my hooks in, and didn't like any of the crocheted organizer patterns I saw, so I decided to sew an organizer! I haven't touched my sewing machine in over a year, so the seams aren't as great as they can be, but I'm pretty happy with the result.  Cheesy

Fruit Cake! the fabric actually has cake recipes printed on it.

close up on the tapestry needles pouch. not the most amazing sewing, I know, but at least the fabric is really cute!

and finally - closed! I'm going to replace the button though, it's only temporary since I had a very limited variety of buttons at hand when I made this. I'll probably go for a huge pink button [gotta love pink!]  Wink
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hats galore! on: October 12, 2012 07:15:30 AM
Hi everyone! I started knitting a few months ago, and I'm hooked ever since. I've been knitting a lot of hats, which are really fun to do since they're such a quick and useful project. Here's some of the hats I've knitted:

And another one from the same pattern:

A tassel hat!

sorry for some of the pictures being a bit lousy, I don't have someone to help me photograph them most of the time.
that's it for now  Smiley
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Mixing different dye brands? on: October 06, 2012 04:38:24 PM
I've got this iDye yarn by jacquard, and some dylon permanent fabric paint. I want to dye cotton yarn [first time dying! woohoo!], but I don't know what would become of these two different dyes mixed together - will it turn out normal, or would the dyes mix oddly because of the differences in chemicals in them?
any help would be much appreciated!
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / A very huggable Platypus on: September 28, 2012 03:58:29 PM
This is my first post on craftster, I'm so excited! Cheesy

I made this little fella a few weeks ago. The platypus is probably my favorite animal of all times, but I don't see a lot of platypus amigurumi out there [except for perry the platypus ones]. It came out unbelievably huggable, so I'm quite happy about this little one  Grin
