1  Wee elf cap in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tamagotchi on: March 01, 2010 03:33:13 AM
I'm not really sure what section this should go under, but this seems like the closest I can get to anything appropriate!

My girlfriend lost her favourite hat, so I said that I would make her a new one.  A couple weeks later, she felted a sweater she loved in the wash, and I remarked on how that would be perfect for a new hat.  A couple of weeks after that, I have finally got around to making it!

Since she bikes a lot, I wanted something which would be warm and close-fitting to her head.  I came up with this little elf cap:

The outside is part of an old dress that I had saved for the fabric, and the interior is lined with her sweater.  I made all the decorations (tie cords, leaf appliques, and tassel) myself!  This back shot shows the colour better and also gives a good view of the little gathers at the back of the neck.  The whole thing is fitted perfectly to her head, and with two layers of fabric it is super warm!

Sleepy girlfriend wants to go to bed, but I have forced her to stay up wearing a funny hat:

A not-very-good shot which shows the interior:

2  Feather stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by tamagotchi on: March 01, 2010 03:22:20 AM
A simple stencil I did of a feather.  I drew the design myself, then sponged it on with fabric paint.

3  Buncha old projects: owls, bunnies, berries in Knitting: Completed Projects by tamagotchi on: March 01, 2010 03:17:08 AM
Just a few old mini-projects, x-posted from Ravelry.  First is an owl hat I made for my friend Sean, made from Rowan Scottish Tweed.  You can't see the owls too well in this picture, but they're there!

Next is a trinity stitch hat I made for another friend.  I love the colour with this stitch pattern...it reminds me of little raspberries!

And last but not least, some bunny armwarmers made for yet another friend.  I found the bunny buttons (she loves rabbits), so I whipped these up for her birthday.  They are my own design, I wanted something simple but a little girly:

4  Bluebell the Elle-ephant (Image Heavy!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tamagotchi on: April 13, 2008 03:03:17 PM
[X-posted to Ravelry]

I knit my flatmate Elle a stuffed elephant for her birthday, and then constructed a fabulous elephant wardrobe for her!  I've recently really gotten into knitting toys, so this was a lot of fun.  I used the Elefante pattern, which can be found here: http://susanbanderson.blogspot.com/2007/04/page-18-elefante.html.  The yarn is just some recycled stuff I got from a charity shop.  Unfortunately I took all the photos in a fit of enthusiasm at about 3 in the morning, so they aren't as good as they could be.

Tons of beautiful outfits.  Note that the boxes are labeled "clothes" and "hats"!

Fez with matching blanket

Sassy feathered hat and ruffled cape

Jackie O pillbox hat and a scarf which buttons on the side

I love the fez.  I love it.

My friend's mom loved the present so much when she saw it that she knitted a tiny lace shawl for the elephant as well!  So cute!

I posted this under the "show off your hair" thread, but since probably no one is going to wade through the 300-some pages to find it, I thought I'd repost it here.  These are some pictures from last year of my first attempt at setting my hair:

Apologies to people who've already seen them!

6  Re: come one! come all! post pics of your tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by tamagotchi on: April 05, 2007 08:25:54 PM
I hope I haven't already posted this...please tell me if I have!

My first tattoo, gotten shortly after my 18th birthday.  I thought it would be easy to find exactly the design I wanted for this, but I ended up having to draw it myself.  At some point I'd like to get it re-inked and maybe expand it into a backpiece.  I want a victorian-style frame around it, with a white moth on one side and a plum blossom on the other.  Right now it is just alone.  (It's on my back, in case you can't tell from the photo.)

My birds.  Taken from the Sandman and done in a brushwork style.  These pictures were taken shortly after I got them done, so they're pretty old.

8  yay, it's spring! I need to go pick some flowers now. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tamagotchi on: February 21, 2007 08:58:01 PM
Ok, I know it isn't quite spring yet, but the warmer weather has got me excited.  So excited, in fact, that I finally finished up this jumper that I've been working on for about two months.  Unfortunately I don't have any before shots.  It started out as an incredibly hideous maternity dress in a kind of icky baby blue color that would only have been cool about twenty years ago, if ever.  Also it came down to my knees.  And it had these weird strap/buckle things across the front fastened with (yucko!) white plastic D-rings.  But!  I had a vision.  I ripped off the weird buckles, brought in the sides, and hemmed it to be a LOT shorter.  I then spent about four hours in front of a hot stove dying it to a darker shade.  The front was a little torn up from the former buckle things, so today I finally got off my butt and stitched some of this lovely ribbon I found across the bodice.  Yay!  I'm really happy with it!

Hanging up:

Doesn't it just make you want to dance in a meadow?

9  the PERFECT wintertime party dress - I win at life! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tamagotchi on: February 14, 2007 09:00:49 AM
I made this dress over a month ago, but I'm just now getting a chance to post pictures.  I LOVE it.  I hesitate to even post these pictures because they don't do this amazing dress justice.  I wanted something that would be warm and comfortable to wear, but still look cute for the slew of holiday parties.  The solution?  The cutest flannel shirtdress ever!

On the dressmaker's form:

Action shot:

I started out with a men's XL flannel shirt (thank you, value village!), which I then proceeded to make a LOT smaller.  I put the sleeves back on and shortened and gathered them.  And finally I moved the breast pockets down to the hips.  Worn with a long sleeved shirt, it is both stylish and warm!

10  on my quest to find the perfect slouchy hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by tamagotchi on: February 14, 2007 08:53:27 AM
This is probably my favorite thing I've knitted so far.  I accidentally felted my favorite hat in the wash...so then of course I had to make a NEW favorite hat.  I haven't done any of the finishing yet, but I was just way too impatient to take pictures!

on the ironing board:

on me (excuse my appearance):

I based the pattern off the e-town hat (http://www.littleturtleknits.com/pithyhat.htm), but I made a LOT of modifications.  I used Rowan Kid Classic on US 6 needles.  CO 100, then increased to 120 for the body.  For the cable pattern I did: p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k5 for 3 rows, then on the fourth row I did: p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, cable 5 back.  The decreases are the same.  I'm so proud of it!
