1  spirogyra hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Hitgirl on: March 29, 2008 06:17:46 AM
I was given a ball of mystery yarn the other day, perfect thickness for a hat, and I decided to use Knitty's Spirogyra http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/KSPATTspirogyra.html pattern to make one. I made it up as I went along and it actually fits (pretty rare occurrence for me Wink ).

aww thanks everyone Smiley i'll try to wear it more often then, especially when it gets a bit warmer out.

i didn't use a pattern, i just traced a tank top that i liked for the top, cut it at the boobs & made it double layered because the fabric was quite sheer, added sleeves and then added a strip to the bottom to bring the length to my waist. then i just took all the fabric left and bunched it up around the strip and that was it. i didn't even hem the bottom, ha! here's a photo, rissarox:

& thanks for the tip, judethelost! i'm too scared to rip seams out because my machine makes tiny stitches and i might rip it all up, but i'll definitely be making a similar dress again

3  floaty dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Hitgirl on: February 27, 2008 06:20:37 PM

(full size: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v377/hitgirl/PHOTOS/dressess.jpg)

i made this dress quite a while ago but i only just decided to take some pictures of it.
it's made of the thinnest knit ever and if i remember correctly the skirt part used up about 2 metres in length, making it quite heavy, so i'm terrified of it ripping at the seams. on top of that, that shade of red clashes horribly with my skin... so i've never worn it out. too bad, because it's so soft and floaty.

4  Stud in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Hitgirl on: June 20, 2006 06:02:08 AM

I figured sewing would get me out of this art block/rut I've been stuck in for too long now.

I didn't have much felt, which meant unless I wanted a sugar-cube sized little creature, no machine sewing (couldn't leave much of a seam allowance, you see).
As my hand sewing is quite uneven, and as it looked quite nifty anyway, I sewed him up using blanket stitch on the inside (so when I turned him the right way around and stretched the seams, I got those cool looking stitches).

His eyes were salvaged from a studded cuff thing. He's got tiny little feet and rather long arms which didn't photograph very well. 

He's 5 cm tall, long and wide, and enjoys sitting on TI-83s and looking out the window.

5  Cherry Brooch in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hitgirl on: January 18, 2006 08:28:14 AM
My friend saw a cherry brooch in a shop, and when she went back a few days later to buy it, it was gone. I was bored and had to study for my exams, and had just rolled up another ball of this infernal red yarn that haunts me I have so much of... so obviously I made her one.

I made two pom poms, connected them by braiding some yarn, and knit a little leaf. It's just hanging off a safety pin. Pretty simple, but she likes it.

chocolatecello: the picture is pretty big, I think it magically shrank when I posted it on the forum. If you do the right click thing and get the address (or just click http://home.graffiti.net/hitgirl:graffiti.net/jackethi.png) you can see it full size. Wink

xstillxherex72: I took photos, edited them and added the measurements. Wasn't sure what to measure really, so I just put what I thought was relevant. It's in centimetres, I'm afraid Tongue I didn't include the hood, cuffs, pockets or waistband thing.

8  Musky green, pleated bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Hitgirl on: October 19, 2005 01:18:49 PM

This was made with the leftovers of camouflage fabric! Cheesy I just turned it inside out.
The lining's this pink fabric I use everywhere (it never runs out. gah). I added a pocket on the inside for things that I wouldn't want popping out of the bag when I'm searching for my housekeys Wink
I didn't use a pattern, but I did use some knowledge I gained from making a slouchy hobo bag a la Tinafish a while ago. It's really roomy and nice, I love it.
That's it!

9  Camo Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Hitgirl on: October 19, 2005 01:12:41 PM

Full size: http://home.graffiti.net/hitgirl:graffiti.net/jackethi.png

Simple jacket I made. Used another jacket to draw out patterns for the back, front and sleeves, and added my own hood and cuffs. It's only got a lined hood and front - so I can wear it open.
Sorry if the photos aren't very clear; my camera is absolutely crap but at least I'm good with photoshop Wink

Edit: if you're interested in the pattern I used, just scroll down a bit Smiley

Oh and (rather pointless) fun fact: I don't have a tripod, so instead I balanced my camera on my sewing machine. Weee.
