191  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / ~Honeydukes Souvenir Earrings~ on: September 14, 2008 02:58:05 PM
I'm a sucker for anything Harry Potter,  and thus I love Harry Potter swaps.  I made these for the Back to Hogwarts swap.  They were real simple.  I used those mini candy ornaments.  I just cut off the string, attached a jump ring and ear wire, and ta-da Honeydukes souvenirs!  To me Harry Potter and sweets go hand and hand so here is a sweet way to remember our love of Potter and Honeydukes Sweetshop.

192  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / ~Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes Store Apron~ from Harry Potter on: September 14, 2008 02:51:34 PM
Ah, the perfect accessory when whipping up a batch of fever fudge or creating fabulous WonderWitch products.  Why so pink?  Wellthe workers do wear those magenta robes and to honor the violently pink WonderWitch merchandise (because who doesnt love a love potion or pygmy puff?).  

I made this item for my swap partner in the Back to Hogwarts swap.  I was trying to think of some different projects to make and came up with this.  And yes I know, the pic is not the greatest; my camera is doing weird things with bright pinks.

Anyways, I dyed a simple, white pocketed apron.  Then, I ironed on some letters and attached ribbon for a bit of decoration.  I thought it turned out pretty cute, and pretty pink.  Grin
193  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / ~Harry Potter House Sweater Scarf~ on: September 14, 2008 02:40:29 PM
Here is a simple single crochet scarf that I made for my swap partner in the Back to Hogwarts scarf.  It's for those days when you want to wear your House colors but dont want to scream it to the worldalso for a change in pace from the traditional scarf.  I really liked how it turned out and can't wait to make myself one.  Grin

194  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine Covered Journal on: September 08, 2008 02:16:55 PM
In a recent go green swap, I found myself with lots of colorful, ripped end of magazine pages.  I decided to use them to cover a simple journal.

I used glossy mod podge....see the shine Grin

But then I needed to make the inside match so I unleashed my circle punch on some spare magazine pages...

195  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bowlful of Beads ~great way to recycle those magazines~ on: September 08, 2008 02:06:59 PM
I decided in a recent go green swap to make a huge set of magazine beads.  I always have tons of magazines piled around (I'm a sort of magazine junkie).  I always imagine they will come in useful, and now they have. Grin

The Bowl of Beads (I reused a plastic bowl some yummy watermelon came in)

A Few Close-Ups

I love how colorful they turned out.  Now, I just need to make myself a bowlful!

My best friend while making these beads was my paper cutter.
Thank you dear paper cutter!   Kiss
196  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / mmm...so yummy to make ~*starburst bracelet*~ on: September 08, 2008 01:56:44 PM
I have always adored candy wrapper bracelets.

So when the go green swap came around, I knew I had to share my love of this fabulous recycling project.

In the past I have always struggled on how to join the ends.
Here I used a waxed thread, and sewed on the toggle.

I'll definitely be making more!  Grin

198  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Special Olympics looking for scarves *Must arrive by Jan. 15, 2009* on: August 13, 2008 06:49:48 PM
I saw this in the Crochet Today magazine and thought I would forward the info to those who want to participate.

Here is a link to the info... http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Features/Special+Olympics.htm

And a link to some patterns, though you are not restricted to just these...http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/Accessories/WR1704+Knit+and+Crochet+Special+Olympic+Scarves.htm

Here is the information quote for easy reference..

Athletes at the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Idaho will be wrapped in a little handmade love, courtesy of knitters and crocheters across the country. Coats & Clark is sponsoring a project to provide each athlete with a scarf created in white and delft blue Red Heart Super Saver yarns.

The World Winter Games aim to give a scarf to each athlete, the delegates supporting them and various dignitaries who will be visiting the Gamesand they need help to meet that mark. This is where Coats & Clark comes into the picture.

"We're thrilled to sponsor this project. Our goal is to see 5,000 scarves donated. It's a big number, but I'm confident we can do it," says Vicki Blizzard, media relations and special promotions director for Coats & Clark. "Knitters and crocheters are dedicated and generous and are known for rising to this type of challenge."

No special patterns or skills are required to create a scarf. Beginners, schools, scout troops and other local groups are actively encouraged to participate. "Our only rule," says Blizzard, "is that the scarves are knitted or crocheted by hand using delft blue (885) and white (311) Red Heart Super Saver yarn, because these colors perfectly match the Special Olympics logo and were chosen specifically by the World Winter Games organizers."

Coats is providing a knitted pattern and a crochet pattern but any pattern from basic stitches to complicated colorwork and stitch patterns may be used.  Personal notes from knitters and crocheters who want to send their best wishes to the athletes are encouraged and should be firmly attached to the scarves, which will be handed out before the Opening Ceremony.

Special Olympic Scarves pattern

Completed scarves must arrive by January 15, 2009, and should be sent to:

2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games Scarf Project
3150 West Main Street
Boise, Idaho 83702

About the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games: The 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games will be held in Idaho, USA, February 7-13, 2009, and will include approximately 3,000 athletes from more than 100 countries and 6,000 volunteers.

199  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Angel Cuddle-link to pattern included on: August 07, 2008 08:48:35 AM
Here are a few angel cuddles I made for my swap partner in the recent random swap.  I adapted the pattern a bit to add a fluffier yarn at the bottom.  I used red heart super saver for the head & wings and red heart baby clouds for the bottom.

Cuddle 2

You can find the pattern for this angel cuddle at http://lucybug.org/angelwrap.html.  It is by Aunt B and is titled Angel Wrap.
