1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Earrings made for the holidays 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  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Need DUTCH or KOREAN help! on: October 18, 2007 04:07:42 AM
I want to make a T for my friend's new baby -- can someone please help me write "Got Milk?" in Korean OR Dutch characters? 

There are lots of Korean online dictionaries that have characters if it's possible to cut and paste.  I just don't want to assume what I crank out is accurate and have the message come out offensive!

Many thanks!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Where can I find / what is this called? 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!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Trade for some Mizuhiki cord in silver or gold?? on: June 23, 2007 03:20:30 PM
I bought gold and silver mizuhiki cord for my wedding (8 years ago!) which I never got around to using; if anyone would like to have some, I'd love to share / trade it!

Please PM me if interested.

My weaknesses include: yarn (easy knitting, crocheting, amigurimi), sewing (so scraps of fun fabric or trim are appreciated), jewelry making, cooking, and papercraft (origami, card making, etc).
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Alien Easter Bunnies, Gromit-style 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!

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Does anyone have Kunin patterns to share? on: April 03, 2007 03:33:49 AM
I am looking for stuffie patterns and saw a lot mentioned about Kunin's free patterns but when I went to their site today it's being redesigned!

If anyone has bunny patterns from there to share, please PM me -- I'm trying to make some things in time for Easter.... I know, I know it's cutting things CLOSE!

Thanks in advance for your help!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Custom onesies and card for twins! 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!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question about sewing appendages onto amigurimi on: January 15, 2006 04:49:21 AM

I just made my first little amigurimi mouse -- will post a pic once my little one wakes up and lets me take a photo!

My question is -- is it just me, or does it take a while to sew things on well and correctly?  The crocheting part took very little time, but attaching the tail, ears, nose, and stitching the eyes took almost as long and was WAY more frustrating for me.

Any advice or tips would be welcome.  Do you use yarn or thread?  Do you attach certain parts BEFORE stuffing?  What needles do you use?  My yarn needles are either too klunky to sew, or too hard to thread.

Thanks in advance.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first crocheted red hat 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  
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Need ideas for autumn/nature kids party please on: November 08, 2005 04:37:44 AM
I'm throwing my 5 year old to be daughter a birthday party and it's a nature theme -- bugs, birds, small amphibians, reptiles.

I've found favors but am at a loss for craft ideas or food -- it's a short party so I thought autumny-colored cupcakes (CHOCOLATE!) would be in order, but if you have ideas for games or craft/activities I'd love your input!

The parents are all very hands-on and handy so somewhat complicated is no problem.

THanks in advance!
