1  Earrings made for the holidays in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LSTinVA on: January 17, 2009 04:10:28 AM

I made lots of earrings to give out for gifts this past holiday season -- It's a great way to use up all those lovely random beads from leftover larger projects.

I always name each of my projects and personalize a gift tag for each recipient.

Thanks for looking!

2  Where can I find / what is this called? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by LSTinVA on: August 11, 2007 02:34:39 AM
Forgive me but I am desperate and need your help, fellow craftsters!

I have seen someone wearing a silver pendant with a swirly/heart/vine design.

1) Is there a name for this pattern?  I've seen it in books and typesettings before

2) Has anyone ever seen the pendant for sale somewhere?? 

If anyone can help, please PM me.

Many thanks!

3  Alien Easter Bunnies, Gromit-style in Easter by LSTinVA on: April 03, 2007 06:50:24 PM
I made these from the Wee Wonderful pattern for Easter!  

No nose or mouth, tho... it was hard enough for me to make as it was!  Great pattern -- I just can't sew curved and 3-D shapes very well.  The best part is the tails are GLOW IN THE DARK pom pons!  Makes them even MORE alien-bunny-like.

Thanks for looking!

4  Custom onesies and card for twins! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by LSTinVA on: February 25, 2007 01:03:14 PM
I made these for my friend's twin girls last year and never got around to posting... here they are!  They were inspired by another Craftster so I definitely want to share the credit.

Easy-peasy, as my children would say.  I got inexpensive but soft onesies from my local big box store and iron on transfer paper from the craft store.  A few clicks on the computer, a few minutes with my iron, and ta-da!  Wrapping them in plastic bags and making custom "labels" makes it even more special.

Have fun!

5  My first crocheted red hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by LSTinVA on: December 14, 2005 10:00:32 AM
I made this for my grandmother-in-law for Christmas -- a sassy red hat to match her personality!  It was a cloche pattern from the Lion Brand yarn website.  I used a different rose and a separate leaf pattern from other sites.

Please be kind -- I'm new to needlework!

PS -- the bear is just modeling the hat until Christmas  Wink

You could buy the tiny/mini ceramic piggy banks from Michaels and paint wings on them like in this photo ~

Oh wow -- how fun!  I love the paper theme idea.  Good luck with the planning and folding!

We made origami invitations -- got really nice white and royal mulberry-type paper from Kim's Crane (http://www.kimscrane.com/) and also had translucent paper run thru the laser printer.  The mulberry paper has pearlish and metallic threads in it and was really pretty and subtle.  The square is 12" and folded down to 4.5" x 6.25" -- it fit perfectly into a translucent envelope (from marcospaper.com)

Be forewarned -- it took quite a while to make 150 invites, but they were well worth the time  Smiley

If there's any interest I'll post a folding tutorial.
