1  The Ladies of Gotham - pictures galore in Halloween Costumes by gollygeeitsamy on: October 31, 2009 07:49:03 PM
Okay so this Halloween my friends and I decided to do a group costume and we chose the ladies of Gotham! So we got Harley Quinn (me, she is the joker's gf), Poison Ivy, Bat Girl, and Cat Woman!

The Harley Quinn and Bat Girl costume were the most "home-made" but I think they all look great!

The whole gang together:


This is the best one that shows Harley...

Harley Quinn costume:
1-sewn red/black sweatshirts together
2-fleece hat - little small but hand sewn it really easy, jester ears are stuffed with cotton
3-black leggings
4-tall black/red socks from target
5-mask, black converse with red stitching, and red/black gloves

Bat Girl costume:
1-cape from Big Lots
2-Handmade mask out of cardboard and back fabric
3-yellow bat sign out of cardboard and yellow duct tape
4-utility belt from goodwill with yellow duct tape
5-gloves are yellow kitchen gloves
6-black shirt, leggings, and boots

Poison Ivy
1-green leotard
2-green tights
3-green/black skirt
4-ivy, ivy, and more ivy
5-red hair dye

Cat Woman
1-black shirt and leggings
2-cat ears
3-black gloves
4-cat makeup

We had lots of fun with our outfits!! Smiley

3  accidental boobies cookies in Dessert by gollygeeitsamy on: October 22, 2008 05:33:01 PM
okay so i wanted to make sugar cookies with hershey kisses and i went about making them all happy.
i got my cookies together and got them into the oven at 350 degrees.
my roommate, being kind, looks into the oven to make sure that they aren't burning.
I hear an "uh amy? we have some x rated cookies....*giggles*"
so i had to get up an see what she was talking about and i exclaim "oh my they're boobies" and lots of laughter ensue.
and allison wanted me to share this with everyone here on lovely craftster (she's pictured below).
by the way, they were really yummy but i think hershey kisses are better on peanut butter cookies.

4  fairly easy fair isle woohoo my first sweater! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by gollygeeitsamy on: October 02, 2008 03:16:00 PM
Okay so the moment I got Stitch N Bitch Nation I knew I HAD to make the Fairly Easy Fair Isle.
And it was cold enough to today to wear it out. I got LOTS LOTS LOTS of compliments and my friend even told my professor that I knitted it and I had to stand up and show the whole class (that was a bit embarrassing).
I used worsted weight yarn but doubled the strands to meet the gauge.
Yarn Used: Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Espresso - around 8-10 skeins (i bought 10)
Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Olive
Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Dusty Green
Bernat Satin Banana (LOVE THIS its so soft)
So I'm on a college students budget so I opted for just regular yarn and I didn't like any of the bulky yarn at Micheal's so I just went with the worsted weight. I think it came out fairly well.  This took me about 4 weeks on and off knitting. I had a few problems with the sleeves but I definitely learned a lot.
What I learned:
1-YES I can knit a sweater
2-Yes I can knit in fair isle
3-My binding off needs to be looser
4-I need to work on seaming
On to the pictures!!
(sorry my mirror is dirty)

haha my sweater matches my shower curtain.
and I think I'm going to change those buttons.
What do you think?

9  Amy's Hat on Everwood 5/1/06? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by gollygeeitsamy on: May 02, 2006 01:20:38 PM
I was watching Everwood Monday night and Amy's hat looked awesome. It was like a tobagan/beanie but longer and it didnt have a top. it was left open and her hair was in a pony tail. I'm new to knitting and I was wondering if anybody had seen it, had a clue to what it was, could help me figure out how to knit it. I searched google and fan sites but couldnt find a picture.
okay here is a very badly drawn paint picture, hope that you can understand:

10  i think this looks not cool, how to fix? images in Stitch And BOTCH by gollygeeitsamy on: December 28, 2005 07:19:17 PM
i made an mp3 holder yesterday with black and green felt. it looked pretty good for my first time working with felt and hand stitching it together. i decided it needed some decoration and was like i can use iron on transfer. well that didnt go to good. it now looks bad (and i used dark colored transfer paper!)
so i was wondering if anyone had any ideas of how to fix this or should i just throw this away and start anew? and did i use the transfers wrong? suggestions are appreciated.

inside looks good with my mp3 player

outside not so good Sad

close up ----  EWWWW

sorry for huge pictures!!!
