1  Paisley Purse-thing in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Niksters on: December 20, 2007 07:55:53 PM
So, I found this fabric at Walmart and instantly fell in love with it.  I had originally planned on making a big purse out of it, but I changed my mind. lol. (I'm a girl I can do those things. lol) I ended up making it rather small and using it to carry my Bible and Sunday school book.
Onto the pics:
Outside, hanging on my closet door.

Inside, filled up:

A view of the pocket and pen holders:

Overall, I'm really proud of it! I'm not too happy with the inside, but nobody will see that but me.

2  I love Lucy in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Niksters on: October 07, 2007 11:02:47 AM
I made this for my friend, who, loves Lucy. lol.  I didn't make the bag, I just bought it b/c I don't really have time to make a bag AND stencil it. I used the freezer paper technique and I must say, I love it! It bled a little around the edges, but I think that's just b/c the bag is denim.

The whole bag:

This shows the color the best:

All those rhinestones were freakin hard to put on there! I was thinking about buying some red ribbon and sewing it around the top to pep it up a bit. What do you guys think? I was also thinking about redoing the straps in red or something, at least making them a little longer b/c there kind of short.

Feedback is super appreciated!

3  The Hulk!!! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Niksters on: August 27, 2007 07:59:00 PM
So my b/f kind of requested this one. He said it would be cool to have a Hulk turtle and that's about as close as he gets to actually asking me for something. lol. So, I finally got around to finishing him, hair and all.  I must say though, I'm rather proud of him. Especially the hair. Anyways, enough rambling, onto the pics!

This one wasn't nearly as complex and detailed as the others. His hair was a bit difficult but I just needed to figure out the best way to do it, then I was fine.

4  Superhero Turtles! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Niksters on: August 07, 2007 06:46:28 PM
So, I saw these (http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=40998) turtles and I fell in love with them! I've made my b/f 2 now. A spidey-turtle and a Captain America turtle. I didn't get pics of the Spidey-turtle though. I also made my sis one (no pics of that either  Undecided). And I made my b/f's nephew a Symbiote Spider-turtle for his birthday. He loved it!
Anyways, enough rambling, onto the pics!
The Captain America Turtle:

With no shield:

And just the shield:

Symbiote Spider-Turtle:

That's all I have pics of for now. Hopefully I can get my b/f to bring Spider-Turtle over so I can take pics of him too.

Thanks for looking!

5  My awesome new camera cozy [very img heavy] in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Niksters on: July 18, 2007 10:00:57 PM
I guess I'm posting this in the right forum....
I crocheted myself a new camera case earlier! I'm super proud of myself  Grin!
I'm not really sure how I did it, I just kinda crocheted and didn't really count much of anything. lol
Anyways, onto the pics!

I added buttons to, I guess you could call it the 'front':
They're my favorite part!

Flap open:

You can kinda tell that the button hole and button are slightly off center, but I don't care I still love it!:

My phone in it so you get an idea of how big it is:

A close-up of the buttons:

Thanks for looking!

6  Turtles and buttons and paint pens, OH MY! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Niksters on: July 05, 2007 06:35:17 PM
So, I've had this brown shirt for a while. I bought it w/ the intention to spice it up and I finally did tonight. I sketched the turtle onto some posterboard-like material and traced around it w/ pen, then traced over that w/ a silver paint pen.  I also sewed on the buttons.

Before the button "spots":

The whole shirt:

Close-up of the blue/green "boy" turtle:

I was thinking about adding a bow to the "girl" turtle just to make sure that everyone knew that she was, in fact, a girl. lol.
What do you think?

7  Pillows galore! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Niksters on: June 27, 2007 05:41:52 PM
So, I got on a pillow-making kick one day. I made my boyfriend's nephew a Thomas the Tank Engine pillow b/c he's obsessed w/ Thomas and I made my boyfriend a Spiderman pillow b/c he loves Spiderman. My sister got a Dora the Explorer pillow and I got a polka dot one! Yeah, enough talking onto the pics!



Polka dot:

and Dora:

They only took me about an hour for each of them. That includes measuring, cutting, stuffing, and sewing. They're super comfy too!
Thanks for looking!

9  A few painted shirts [slightly img heavy] in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Niksters on: June 27, 2007 05:07:36 PM
I found the hoodie I was talking about! Here's the link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107227.0

I saw a hoodie on here a while back that had these dinos on it and I fell in love w/ it and had to have one of my own. I don't remember who it was, but if you find this thread, feel free to tell me!
Here's my take on it:

^Me wearing it. My b/f said I had dino boobies. lol^

I bought this t-shirt b/c it was really comfortable, then I wanted to paint on it. So I was like "It's blue, I'm going to put clouds all over it" And I did. I just cut a sponge in a cloud shape and went to work.
Before washing:

After washing:

I actually like it A LOT more this way...

And this isn't really painted, but tie-dyed. I was really proud of myself that I did it w/o messing up too horribly. My b/f's friend wanted one so I made myself one too :-). I didn't intend for so much white to be there, but I kinds like it.

Once again, thanks for looking!

10  3 new skirts! [img heavy!] in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Niksters on: June 27, 2007 04:48:42 PM
One day, I was really bored and realized that I needed some new skirts to wear to church w/ my b/f and I just really wanted some cute skirts that didn't leave my butt hanging out. lol. So, in the craft section at Wal-mart one day, I found this awesome, lightweight plaid material for $1/yd, so I snatched some up! Out popped these:

This one is just your basic tiered skirt.

^"Action shot"^


The next two are pretty much the same.
First skirt:

^Close-up of material and gathering.^
I also made a purse out of the left over fabric I loved it so much!

Second skirt:

^Close-up of fabric and gethering^

Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism appreciated!
