1  button, button, who's got the button? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by chocodog on: March 26, 2009 03:45:32 PM
I've been busy with my new button maker. Yay!  I've also been making buttons to give to people who 'donate' some $$ into my tip jar when I'm doing street performing. Pretty cool, eh?

Peter Pan sets:

Dumbo sets:

Check out what I made! I was going to put this in finished work, but I thought it would be better received here.

Non-permanent dread decorations.
I always wanted those dread wraps in pretty colors.

With Flash

No Flash

These are made of embroidery floss and are crocheted. One is tunisian crochet. (The second one from the right.)

I have a bunch of loose hairs... is crotcheing (don't think thats spelled right) the best method to get all the loose hairs into the nearest dread? or are there other method anyone would like to share with me?

Try a floss threader:

One usually uses it to thread floss under bridges and dental devices.

5  Well, I ain't no artist, but.... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chocodog on: August 08, 2008 10:28:45 AM
This is what has been consuming my time for the last week and a half. I don't know why I suddenly have the urge to draw, but I do, and since I can't draw more than doodles, I decided to doodle with a Sharpie pen and color it in with colored pencils afterward. There is a huge labyrinth, and several mini-labyrinths in there as well. Hope y'all enjoy!

7  how is this cool hat made?? (pic heavy) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by chocodog on: February 04, 2007 11:39:53 PM
So I found this cool handmade hat at goodwill, but I don't recognize it as being either knitted or crocheted...so how is it made? It's reversible, and each side is differently colored:

Here are some pics of me flipping up the hat brim to show both sides together:

And here are some close-ups:

I know it's kind of old-school, but I really like how it feels and looks. It is definitely run-of-the-mill acrylic, but I'd like to make some in other colors and textures. The other thing that's cool is that the pom pom is on both sides. I think half of it shows through on either side. Also, the hat seems to be constructed as a tube that is cinched around the pompom on top. Is this made with one of those knifty knitters? Thanks for any help, fiber gurus!

8  beadalon expandable beading loom in Beads: Discussion and Questions by chocodog on: December 10, 2006 06:46:27 PM
I got this beadalon expandable beading loom, and I was trying to figure out how to attach the warp threads to it. It doesn't have any screws or anything on the wooden rollers, but it does have holes. How in the world do I attach the warps to it? Thanks for any help. Here's a pic of the loom:

9  Re: Fibre blending without a carder in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by chocodog on: November 07, 2005 11:23:21 PM
I was experimenting with this...I had a bunch of wool (2 colors) and some flash, and I balled it all up together and pulled the ball in half, balled it up, pulled it in half, ect. The glitz blended in, and it's actually some of my favorite yarn to date.

I hope my description makes sense. It's like kneading dough, or something.
