1  Nintendo DS Lite Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PrincessPeach on: August 22, 2006 11:34:56 AM
I wasn't satisfied with any of the cases I found in the stores. They were either too bulky, too big, or too ugly, so I made my own. Out of some cheap fabric I got at the store for $1.99 a yard.

I loved the beer cozy, so I decided to make my fiance a soda cozy of his own with some inartesia letters on it that spell out his name.

I made the letters a bit too wide, but it says "(heart)Tex" on it.

3  Zeeby's (mini) Star Bag in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by PrincessPeach on: March 12, 2004 07:30:59 PM
During my no-internet hiatus, I started and finished a little bag. I started thinking I was going to make the Zeeby's Bag from Stitch n' Bitch, but after a few rows, I decided it would take too long to make the bag full-sized and I was afraid I wouldn't have the patience to finish. So, I just decided to make a smaller bag and modify the pattern a bit.

The main part of the bag was made by casting on 68 stitches, just like the instructions say, but I just knitted until I decided it was tall enough for a bag, folded it in half vertically (so that one big piece is the back half and the front half of the purse), sewed up the side, sewed up the bottom, and added the straps. Halfway through knitting, I thought it needed some more color, so I decided to knit a pink stripe at the top of the bag to contrast with the straps.

Unfortunately, whenever I put my wallet in there, it seems to stretch out the bag. I think that means I have to line the inside of the bag?

Oooh I like the colors! It inspired me to make a hot head hat of my own today.

5  (my failed attempt at) Tank Girl in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by PrincessPeach on: February 28, 2004 12:34:14 AM
I attempted to knit a tank top from the Tank Girl pattern in Stitch 'N Bitch, but 1/3 of the way through knitting the front, I realized I wouldn't have enough yarn to complete the front.  So instead, I decided to use my finished back piece into a front piece and to make the piece I was knitting the back piece. That way, I could make the back piece a bit (like a lot) lower than the front and it would be wearable in public.  

Unfortunately, I made the straps a bit too long and I forgot about the arm-shaping on the completed (formerly known as back) front piece.  The finished result was a tank top that bared a lot more skin than I would like.  It made the sides of my chest just a *bit* drafty.  I took some leftover yarn and laced it through the front part where the arm-holes were shaped, and laced it to part of the back strap and now I think it's a bit less risque.
