11  Bono bag in Stenciling: Completed Projects by redheadedali on: March 20, 2006 06:38:54 PM
This is a bag I made for my friend Ann, a *crazy* U2 fan, for Christmas. I'm just now getting it up because I wanted to post it with a Buffy bag I made for another friend, but the Buffy bag picture mysteriously disappeared from my camera, and I've been waiting for my friend to send me a picture, and it has yet to arrive, so I decided to go ahead and post Bono by himself. But I digress.

Anyway, here's Bono:

Hope you all like him.

12  Cozy wristwarmers in Knitting: Completed Projects by redheadedali on: January 31, 2006 06:13:09 PM
These are some wristwarmers that I actually finished a long time ago but am just now getting around to actually putting into use:

They're from my own design - panels of stockinette in the middle and ribbing on the sides.They're not perfect (that bit around the wrist is supposed to be a ruffle, but I forgot to do the decreases in pattern for stockinette - duh - and the seaming leaves a lot to be desired), but overall I am happy with them. They are very warm, despite being made of cheapo acrylic I found in a box of stuff a colleague was giving away. And the flowers are cheery Smiley.


P.S. If the angle of the picture seems odd, it's because it was a vertical shot and the computer made it horizontal. I didn't realize I'd forgotten to correct it until it was already uploaded, and I'm too lazy to go fix it. Smiley

OMG, squeeee!!!!

Madmatigan79 fulfilled my wish by making me not one, but *2* excellent makeup bags.

First, there's the green fuzzy monster:



And then there is one featuring *sock monkeys*. I LOVE monkeys, sock or otherwise!



And in the last picture, you can see the lip gloss Madmatigan thoughtfully included with the bags.

Thank you, Madmatigan79! I love them sooooo much!

Here's the stuff I sent girlwonder:

A Chococat tote

A Chococat necklace

And a Landry box

I got a little experimental with these - the tote was my second stenciling project ever, and the necklace was my first go at polymer clay. The Landry box really didn't turn out the way I planned, but I think it was mostly OK. I hope girlwonder likes her stuff Wink.

My original post with pictures is one of the ones that got eaten, but I want everyone to see the goodies I got from girlwonder, so here they are again:

Here's everything: a journal, a necklace, a pin, and a slew of Sanrio stationery.

A close-up of the necklace and pin:

A close-up of the journal:

I LOVE the journal. I told girlwonder I loved the punky HK stuff at Hot Topic, so she made HK punky for the journal. I don't know if you can really tell from the picture, but the HK picture is in a recessed space in the cover with some clear plastic over it. In the space between the picture and the plastic, there are free-floating saftey pins. So cool.

Thanks again, girlwonder!

My first posting of these pictures was one of the ones that got eaten, but I want psyche (at least I know who to thank this time! Wink) to get her props, so here are the pictures of the awesome T-shirt she made me again:

Whole thing


Thanks again, psyche!

18  John Lennon bag in Stenciling: Completed Projects by redheadedali on: December 10, 2005 07:41:56 AM
I posted this once, but it was one of the things that went poof (poor Leah - I'm sure that was enormously stress-inducing). Anyway, here is a John Lennon bag I made on the anniversary of his death, which was also a snow day for me:



What do you guys think?

19  Tattoo bag - my first stencil post! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by redheadedali on: November 28, 2005 08:07:21 PM
I recently decided to give stenciling a try, and I am now thoroughly hooked Wink. The first two projects I did were for swaps, so I don't want to post them yet, but here's the first one I did for myself:

I made the stencil in Powerpoint using clip art and auto shapes. I filled in most of the design with the stencil and then added some of the detail work by hand. I hate that there's a little black smudge on the left, but it's less obvious on the bag than it is in the picture, and I don't know what there is to be done about it, anyway. In case you're wondering, Jason is my boyfriend Wink.

Thanks for looking. Any input is welcome.


P.S. This is the first time I've gotten the rackin'-frackin' picture feature to work. Yay, me!

20  Wonder Woman cuff in Beads: Completed Projects by redheadedali on: October 20, 2005 04:50:17 PM
A while back, I saw a superhero swap posted in the swap forum, but I hadn't been in Craftster long enough to participate. Nonetheless, I was inspired to create a Wonder Woman beaded cuff. I still can't get this rackin-frackin picture-posting thing down, and the pictures don't really show off the bracelet's sparkle, but here are links to some anyway:


On my wrist:

Sadly, it is not bulletproof.
