11  Knitted Cloths From GerbilGal in The Swap Gallery by katebug48 on: January 17, 2009 01:19:01 PM
My beautiful cloths came today from gerbilgal.  I'm passing one on to my mother, who is going through cancer treatment.  We both loved the colors and how they turned out.  Thank you so much gerbilgal!

Sorry for the teeny text on the photos.  The pictures were resized through Craftster and now they are unreadable  Angry

12  Clay Ornaments in Winter Holidays by katebug48 on: December 16, 2007 01:44:04 PM
I'm a college student majoring in Human Services, and as a part of my requirements, I have a certain number of Practicums to do.  This is my last one before I start my Internship.  Technically my classes don't start till January 7, so all the time I've spent with the class so far is just volunteering, because I want to.  They're a local class that goes to a Technical high school, which teaches trades like Horticulture, Cosmetology, Masonry, etc. while they are juniors and seniors.  The class I've chosen to do my Practicum in is a Multi Disabilities class, full of 8 various special needs students.  There was a user on Live Journa's craftgrrl community who posted the recipe about the Arm & Hammer Play Clay, and I wanted to make some so bad!  I went to a local Menonnite store that has bulk supplies to buy the baking soda and cornstarch, so it ended up costing me about $ .50 to make an entire batch, and wrap them all up in the bags and tissue paper.  I worked on these 2 weeks ago, and finished the personalization, strings, and wrapping today.  I figured today was a perfect day since we've had just about a foot of snow fall since Saturday evening.  The personalization was done with a green Sharpie, and then I went over that with a glitter green gel pen.  It made it look like I used one of those expensive glittery paint pens!  I'm very happy with how they turned out.  I colored the batch green and made them into trees.  I sprinkled clear glitter on them all before they dried, so it looks like they have snowflakes on them. 

I also made some for the teachers and various other staff members I know from when I went to the school.  I can't wait to take them into everyone on Wednesday!  I'd definitely make these again next year, they were so quick and easy to do!

Just browsing the thread, so I figured I'd give it a go also!

Here's what I came up with.  It's the same, I just recolored the second ATC a different color once I was finished.  Made using Photoshop.

Once I get more printer ink, I think I'll defnitely be printing these and exchanging them!

I'm pretty much in love with that...such a great message! Smiley

Did you design the image?

I didn't design the actual mudflap girl, I just enlarged her and edited it a bit.

Here is the original unedited version:

15  Fat Pride! My First Ever IOP! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by katebug48 on: May 31, 2007 01:51:36 PM
So today I was feeling extra ambitious, so I decided to take a plain white tank top and turn it into something that really makes a statement.

The design was created and edited by myself.  I just adore the way it turned out.  And even though it's a little thing, I think it says a lot about Fat Acceptance!

Again, I just took a plain white men's tank top from Walmart and a sheet of Mead Iron-On Transfers.  The quote has been floating around in my head for a while.  I just wasn't sure what or how to incorporate it.

I didn't realize but my iron had dirt in the steam holes, from being out of use for a bit.  I sure hope those dots come off. 
My mom has some great color-safe bleach that gets anything off, so I'll have to try that.

And here I am modeling.  Don't I do a great job?!  Tongue

17  I Need Help Finding A Pattern - Crocheted Dog Sweaters in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by katebug48 on: November 04, 2004 12:02:44 PM
I'm interested in making my Mikey and my grandma's Roxie sweaters for Christmas.  I've looked through tons of websites, and all I find are knitted dog sweaters.  I've just learned to crochet, but I can do anything now, and I really wanted to try these.  If you have a pattern, that would help me out immensely.  Also, I need patterns for xsmall or small breed dogs.  Mikey is part beagle part springer spaniel and Roxie is a mini poodle.

I also forgot to mention exactly what I'm looking for.  I would prefer something that would cover their entire body and would have holes for their feet.  Something like a person's sweter, how it covers you fully front and back, but have the opening down towards the end, so they can go to the bathroom with 'easy access' for lack of a better word. lol.
