1  My Guardian Penguin! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Plumbum on: November 08, 2007 11:34:09 PM
So after the "Happy Feet" craze last christmas...or more like during it, i decided to make a small army of penguins. However, most of them found new homes, but one stayed with me!!!

behold the guardian of my "tiffany's" xacto knife collection!!!

(he/she's yet to be named...imagine being a year old with no name!)

Fully hand stitched, with eyes stolen from my mom's button collection...gives it a "i've drank way too much caffeine and i can't sleep" look...which i like. Adds character.

or something. Smiley

2  Neverending Crochet Neckwarmer...in HOT PINK!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Plumbum on: November 08, 2007 11:26:29 PM
So, first post in the crochet forum...very exciting!

I just recently restarted crafting in general, and crocheting was the first thing to come back to me (since i'm no good at friggin knitting).

So here's my first creation in a long time!

(excuse the myspace look)

It's a moeibus (sp?) scarf, inspired by watching some science show on tv and having grade school science class flashbacks...who said that stuff doesn't stick on you?

Made with Red Heart sport in color Hot Pink...and disgustingly easy to make! (if you want a tute, feel free to ask, tho i'm sure that y'all can figure it out way easy)

Hope you like!

3  Sleep deprivation and bonding with my machine... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Plumbum on: January 11, 2006 07:06:23 PM
So, after being on the hunt for a purse while shopping with my brother, I realized that I need not pay 88 dollars for a simple bag that I could make myself. So thanks to the fabrics that I found all over my house, the 100 zippers I bought for an insanely cheap price, and a loooot of time, lack of sleep, and On Demand movies (IheartComcast), this is what ensued.

The top view of the purse, the opening measures about...a good 6 inches, while the bottom is about a foot, maybe 16 inches.

This is the detail of the latch used for the strap. I recycled an old bag I got at some conference a few years ago...that bag also supplied the strap itself!

Detail of the lining, it's a velvety sort of fabric that i aquired back in high school from the "free fabrics" used for class...hehehe...Wink

This is the small matching clutch...i was very bored...and forgot to rotate the picture...

Detail of the inside lining...used an old pair of ripped up jeans, love it!

Zipper view of the clutch...that was hell...

For size reference purposes, here are giftcards to my 2 favorite stores, Torrid and Hot Topic. It has a small opening, but it's pretty damn big inside!

So that's how I spent my weekend! (Plus, I watched "The Fifth Element" like, 45 times...so interesting, that movie...

all kinds of questions/comments are welcome! Smiley

My package from impalacey arrived on Saturday, but I didn't get a chance to take pictures and upload them till, like, today, so here are some pics of the stuff she sent me!

(they're not that good, they're with my phone!)

She knew I loved sewing, so she made me a sewing themed box with the tape measure as adornments! I love it!

All the goodies are inside, at the top is a FABULOUS Gryffindor Ipod Cozy (which was a hit at school/work, everyone wants one lol), then various sewing supplies, needles, thread, etc, and a trio of Harry Potter magnets that are currently adorning my desk at work...I LOVE it!

I'll be taking some pics of the Ipod Cozy holding my cellphone, it's soooooooo darn cute!

Thanks Lacey!
