1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Seed Stitch Baby Jacket in Raspberry on: January 02, 2009 02:12:44 PM
I finally finished this little sweater for my 6 month old niece.  It was fairly simple to knit, although all the seed-stitching got a little crazy  Tongue 

Link to the pattern is here: http://exercisebeforeknitting.com/seed-stitch-baby-jacket/

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Purse on: October 30, 2007 02:40:12 PM
My own design, just a fun little purse.  I put interfacing on the lining so that it would hold it's shape better.  Thanks for looking!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Ballet Sweater from 'Speed Knitting' on: October 30, 2007 02:30:56 PM
I finally finished my Ballet Wrap Sweater, from the book 'Speed Knitting'.  The sweater itself didn't take long at all to knit, even with extending the sleeves to full length and putting a bell shape on the bottom.  But the sewing, weaving in ends and blocking always takes me forever.  Anyways, here it is.

I like it, except the shoulders are bulky, and my boobs are a bit too big for the style, but whatever - I'll wear it anyways Wink
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scarf and Hat for Mom! on: December 19, 2006 03:58:31 PM
My first post in forever! I started knitting this summer, and I cannot be stopped now.  Here is a scarf and hat set I made for Mom for Christmas - hope she likes it!  

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Jewelry Holder on: January 22, 2006 11:15:30 AM
I badly needed something to hold all my accessories so I took at look at what some other crafty craftsters had done and this is what I came up with.  It's not perfect, but it sure fits the bill and now everything is finally untangled, organized and in one place!

I made it with wooden dowel from Michael's and just drilled holes to fit it all together.  Then I sprayed with some black spraypaint left over from another project



6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Head coverings for Chemo on: June 30, 2005 09:32:57 AM
Hello - I tried doing a search but didn't see anything to do with this topic.  I've been commissioned to make my sister-in-law's mom some headcoverings/scarves/turbans for when she starts Chemo and although I can handle the scarves and stuff, I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for turban type styles, or more of hat type of things.  I don't mind buying patterns if I have to, but I think I could design my own if I got some suggestions for what worked for someone else.  Anyone have any ideas or suggestions??

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Yellow and baby blue Hoodie! on: June 05, 2005 02:43:17 PM
I made this hoodie today based on a hoodie I already have that fits me well.  I just sort of figured it out as I went along (as you can see by the uneven zipper installation!).  I'm pretty proud of it though, it's my first one!

What do you think??
Thanks for looking!

Oh god, and apparently we need to clean our mirror!!!  Sorry for the speckles!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity Pattern 5057 - my first attempt at clothing on: May 01, 2005 11:09:28 AM
Hi!  This is my first attempt at both a pattern and an item of clothing.  I have previously reconstructed and altered existing clothes but this is the first time I've made something from the bottom up.  The fabric is from an east Indian store that sells fabric for sari's.  I altered the pattern a bit - made the straps fixed instead of tying, and put a zipper on the side so I could actually get in and out of it.  Sorry for the quality of pics - they were taken in the mirror and without a flash at night....Thanks for looking!






9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / big tote on: March 28, 2005 10:55:54 AM
My boss commissioned me to make a purse for his mother's 69th birthday!  So this is what I came up with - I figured it had to be big enough, fun, yet conservative so she'd actually use it.  All of the stitching on top of the khaki was done with blue thread to add a little decoration that wasn't too obnoxious.  What do you guys think?

Front with untieable bow and decorative seam:

Inside w/ keyholder on the side and a pocket:

Back w/ two (kinda crooked) pockets:

It's pretty big - almost beach bag big!

Thanks for looking,
Mandy J xo
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / rocky horror iron on on: December 27, 2004 10:03:27 AM
made this purse for my sister in law - the picture is a collage done in photoshop of some of the 'rocky horror picture show' characters, converted to black and white with the levels and contrast played with a bit.  then i ironed it onto a piece of woven cotton and stitched it as an applique on the front of the vinyl.  i was pretty happy with the way it turned out, and my sis liked it too!  this is one of my first tries with iron-ons, they were tons of fun!!   Wink
