1  Re: iPod Book Case??? in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by izatchu on: January 17, 2006 08:46:51 AM
I just finished an iPod book cozy for my boyfriend this weekend. I had to do a lot of tweaking to get the measurements exactly right, which took some time, and some experimenting with various kinds of x-acto knife blades. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out though. Here are the pics:

The cover:

The inside:

Here's where the earbuds store:

And where the iPod goes (I cleaned up the edges a bit, and sealed the sides and bottom with mod podge after I took this photo):

And finally, the top where the earphones can connect to the iPod while in the book, if you like. (sorry it's a bit blurry)

2  Scrabble Wall Art/Message Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by izatchu on: January 06, 2006 09:56:04 AM
I made this Scrabble board art piece for a friend who likes Scrabble, but also loves leaving messages. It's actually not made with a board, but with scrapbooking papers that are Scrabble themed.

I used a sheet of stainless steel from the hardware store (cost: $6) (Chicago store, The Crafty Beaver! yay!) and some Scrabble scrapbooking pages from the JoAnn's (around $1/each). I put self-adhesive magnet sheets (about $12 total) on the back of the letters and cut them out.

Then I just double-sided taped the "board" sheet to the stainless steel and arranged the letters underneath. Luckily there are way more than "regulation" boards give you, so you can spell out lots of long messages.

I drilled a couple of holes in the top and strung some picture hanging wire through them for easy adjustment to get it level.

Now my friend (Craftymed) can write messages (she loves the red headed men hence the message in faux Scrabble style "I Love Red Men")

or just play a game of scrabble on the wall. Didn't even break the bank!

3  Re: A knitted womb.. haha. Seriously! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by izatchu on: January 13, 2005 02:19:32 PM

I knit this for my dear friend (pictured) who was starting her OB/GYN rotation in med school right after Christmas. When I gave it to her, there was a moment or two while she turned it around and around, and wondered what it was. I was happy to say that when I told her, "It's a womb!" she tossed the thing at me, and then we had fun throwing it back and forth across the living room. It was very easy, thanks to the wonderful instructions, and even helped me to work on my double-pointed needle skills! Thanks to Knitty and MK!
