1  Pidge Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Paulie_86 on: April 18, 2008 12:18:49 AM
I've finally finished the pidge scarf I started about 2 months ago. It is going into what looks to be a very cold winter here in Australia and I was inspired by an episode of ThreadBangers that features this on it. I It was really quick to finish (which is probably a good thing seeing as I really should be working on my uni assignments). I really like the way it came out and the buttons are really cool too, even though I really wanted big wooden buttons and couldn't find any locally.

I used 6mm and Cleckheaton Merino Spun wool in charcoal.

Tell me what you think!

2  Chunky Ribbed Beanie in Knitting: Completed Projects by Paulie_86 on: February 21, 2008 04:08:08 PM
So it is slowly making it's way into autumn here in Australia and I picked up some great yarn in an Op shop for $1 per 100g ball! And I had even seen this yarn in the shop I was in previously and it was about $3/ball... I took it as a sign that I had to have it. The yarn called for 10mm needles and I wanted to break away from doing scarves and baby blankets so I did a search on the net and found this pattern:

The pattern called for 20 rows before any shaping, but I changed it to 18 - not sure if I made the right decision, but I'm still happy with how it turned out.

So here are some pictures of my first beanie. Comments and criticisms welcome!

3  Pouch for uni bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Paulie_86 on: August 21, 2007 01:30:24 AM
So my uni bag is on the way out and I needed a new one. I ended up getting a big tote bag that had no compartments on the inside to hold anything. I didn't want my phone, keys, lipgloss etc to be all over my bag so I made this to hold everything. It cost me $3 in total to make and I still have heaps of fabric left over!

Close up of the fabric.

I lined it with calico for extra strength.

4  Crochet Hook Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Paulie_86 on: April 10, 2007 01:07:32 AM
I was given a heap of crochet hooks by my mum. I originally put them in with my knitting needles, but decided to give them their own home! I was given the fabric from my grandma and love it! I made my own pattern and used interfacing to give it a bit more strength. I hope you like them!

6  My College Fashion Parade Collection *PIC HEAVY* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Paulie_86 on: February 26, 2006 03:58:03 AM
This has been a long time coming. Last year I did a Certificate IV in Fashion Design and Industry Practices ata private college in Sydney. It was only a short course, but we still got to put together a small collection of 5 outfits. We had to do everything for it, design, make patterns, do toilles (test garments), fittings etc. We even got to choose the models for the parade. It was a lot of fun, especially sewing everything myself! So here is my small Summer collection.

Let me know what you honestly think, because I'm thinking of making some of the pieces up and selling them. And how much would you pay for each if you would conside buying them??? Thanks

Outfit one:
A gathered bust drawstring top and 3/4 cuffed pants. Ideally, the straps should've been longer to get the gathering over the bust.

Outfit two:
Red satin halter and handkerchief skirt with oriental print insert.

Outfit three:
The model in this photo looks scary. She was sooooo tall, had no boobs whatsoever to fill the dress out and kinda looked like a man, so just warning you!

Outfit four:
This has to be one of my fave's!!! It's a cami top with the most comfortable pair of shorts ever! (accordignto the model Grin) They are made out of a stretch linen.

Outfit five:
This is my favourite of all of them. After the parade I got soo many compliments for this dress. I fell in love with this fabric the moment I saw it!!!

7  Cute Lil Top for a Friend in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Paulie_86 on: February 13, 2006 03:29:41 AM
Here is a top I finished on the weekend. I made it for a friend and designed & made the pattern myself. I made it with a printed chiffon that I got for AU$4/m. I lined it with plain chiffon. It fits her like a glove. She really liked it aswell!!! I'm really happy with how it's turned out. Hope you like it!!!

Being modeled by a coathanger...

And now being modeled by my friend...

And last, a close up of the fabric.

Enjoy!!! Grin

8  My first knitting project ~ Green Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Paulie_86 on: January 17, 2006 04:25:01 AM
So this was my first knitting project. I knitted a scarf using Panda Rustica yarn on 8mm needles. I used the method of knit one, purl one. I taught myself to knit, but mum showed me how to do purl knitting. Tell me what you think.  Smiley

And a close up of the scarf:
