1  Re: Ecstatic about Eclipse Gallery in The Swap Gallery by PrincessJazz on: September 15, 2010 05:13:40 PM
So Canada Post's website finally says that Boo Zombie received her package.  Apparently it was stuck in Australia's customs.  Boo must be away on vacation or something though because I haven't heard from her, but I'm going to assume it's okay for me to post photos of what I sent.  My pictures aren't great but here they are.

Large:  Bella's mittens

Medium:  a bear bag.  This is a bit of a stretch....Emmett is her favourite character, and his favourite food is grizzly bears...so this is a grizzly that he drained of blood and I turned it into a little bag for Boo Zombie to keep stuff in.  He even has little blood drops on his neck like from vampire fangs (even though the Cullens don't have fangs).

Medium: coasters and apple candle holder
These have photos of the three main characters and a quote from each character from Eclipse glass etched on top.

Small:  Dazzle Cream

Alright - I've charged my camera, found my cord, and finally took all 750 pictures off my camera from the past year so I'm ready to show off the stuff Boo Zombie sent me.

I'll start with the large.  She sent me this fantastically hand embellished cardigan with an Eclipse theme.  It fits me perfectly!


Now the medium.  She sent a tshirt which I LOVE!  I put it on right away and sorted out a whole outfit to match it so i could wear it to work the next day.  From the front it's just a plain red shirt (my fav. colour).

But from the back it's got the Cullen Crest.  I had asked for something with the crest.

One more medium.  A rapunzel scarf that immediately made me think of Forks.

It has Twilight themed charms all in it.

Now my favourite thing in the package - a loaded charm bracelet.  I love charm bracelets.  I'll show you some of my favourite charms.

Then she sent me a ton of extra jewellery.  I like Jasper so she sent me a necklace based on his roots.  
Alice's choker.
More extras.  I forgot too include a pair of red earring, a hemp necklace, and vampire fangs.

And finally two pieces of art she made.  I already have them both hanging up.

Thank you Boo Zombie!  This was a great swap!  Thanks Pinkleo for organizing!

Here are photos of what I sent Pikabean:


a necklace based very loosely off a brooch in her wists.  Shrinky dink.


Stitch markers (shown here all tied to a ribbon to prevent tangling.)  Keys because you never know when you'll need an extra, and "diamonds" because even though it may be tacky for a woman under 40 to wear them, knitting can wear whatever jewellery it wants.


A mirror with a picture of Audrey standing outside a window at Tiffany's, holding her bag of breakfast in her hand.  This was super fun to make.


Technically a scarf shouldn't be considered large - but this was done at a pretty fine guage and because it was double knit (my first time!) it took waaay longer than I anticipated so that bumps it into the large category I think.  Two photos because one shows it closer up and one shows the back side a bit.  The light blue is angora and oh so soft.  This was based on a scarf in her wists and incorporates one of her favourite lines.

I also sent a BAT themed set of stationary I found at Chapters, and a dvd of that movie telling the story of Audrey's life (y'know the one with Jennifer Love Hewitt?) but I didn't take photos of those.

Everything in this gallery looks great!  I received last week and I just took pictures so here they are!

First up,  a sleep mask and tassled ear plugs just like Holly's!  The mask is sooo soft! 

Next, some Audrey charms that Pikabean threw in as extras.  I'm not sure yet what I'm goingt o do with them, but I think they're great!  I'll need to find just the right place to use them.  Maybe a bracelet?

She painted me an umbrella and wrote a little note about how Holly could have really used one in the final scene of the movie.  Now I'll be prepared in case I ever have a big dramatic moment in the rain.

Some of the paint got messed up from it being folded but that's easy enough to fix! (You can see it on the "w".)

And my favourite!  I'd just been thinking that I needed to get a pincushion as all my pins were stuck in the couch and then this arrived.  It's like she read my mind.  Holly's bathrub couch is one of my favourite things in the movie so she used that as inspiration.

Thanks Pikabean - you're a great partner!

5  Rogue in Knitting: Completed Projects by PrincessJazz on: April 17, 2007 07:48:48 AM
I started this sweater in January and got all the way up to the point where I would divide front and back before I admitted that it was turnning out too small.  I frogged it all and started over.  From that point it took me 5 weeks of pretty much only working on this project.  I love how it turned out.  One thing though - I was knitting it with some white yarn (that fellow craftster Tonic sent me from Australia) and I didn't realize one ball was a different dyelot.  I was not about to frog again so I dyed the whole sweater a very light brown.  You can still see the difference in certain lighting if you know what you're looking for but that's good enough for me.  Other than that, I love this sweater!

you can see the original yarn colour in this photo of it blocking.

This is the most complex things I've knitted so far.... it was a challenge but by the end of it I was feeling very comfortable with all those cable charts. 

Thanks for looking!

6  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by PrincessJazz on: April 13, 2007 01:29:02 PM
I looked at all the tattoos in the old thread and have been wanting to get one for years.  I have it all planned out - I want a Life/Death amigram on the top of my right foot.  But I'm waiting for my husband to be on board.  Anyways.... a couple months ago my two best friends came to visit and we spontaneously got tattoos.  because it was small and because it was meaningful with my friends my husband supported it.  They're tiny and so so simple but I love it because every time I see it I remember that my friends love me.  They were my bridesmaids and we've been friends for years and years.

They're gummi bears.  I traced a photo of a gummi bear candy from the internet.  My foot is the one on the right.

Wow - it's so weird to see the stuff that I made right here in my own living room, laying on someone else's couch!  It's like I kind of forgot that it actually still exists.  Kind of like getting a glimps into a parallel universe. Or maybe not.

Anyways.... I had lost my camera cord to put pictures on the computer but I have bought a new one so here are pictures of what eenodol sent me.

First, a shot of it all together:

She made me two amigirumi dolls of Arthur Kobalewscuy and Yick Yu with many little playsets with little clay accessories for the boys. Everything was packaged and labelled so nicely.  Made me feel kinda bad for just shoving my stuff in an envelope.

Here are the boys out of their bags.

Yick has funky glasses and asian-looking eyes.

Arthur has blong curly hair which is actually like hair and not just yarn.

And my favourite part - 2 Broomheads!  The kids call each other broomheads so this is just too funny.  She sent just the heads of two toy brooms.  Awesome!

Also - she sent the movie "School's Out" on dvd.  I was thrilled to receive that because I had tried to get a copy on VHS years ago but couldn't.

Thank you so much Laura!

8  GREEN clothing in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by PrincessJazz on: January 08, 2007 07:06:43 PM
I found an awesome Green Lantern shirt at Salvation Army and it was brand new but GIGANTIC (like 4XL or something).  My brother is a big Green Lantern fan but he is not huge.  So I used this tutorial:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100217.0  and two green tshirts from Value Village and made this instead.

Double pockets

And the picture which inspired it all.

I don't normally sew so this was a very ambitious project for me.  Hopefully it holds together.

I also made myself this skirt just before Christmas.  It is made from a bed sheet and seam binding.  It is only two pieces of material.  It is a wrap around skirt.

Thanks for looking!

Those gloves are lovely!  I like the beading. I'd never have the patience to do that.

I made some ornaments for a friend for Christmas.

They took about an hour each and were a great way to use up those little odds and ends.  I stuffed them with extra yarn as I had no polyfil.

10  I knitted The Force (and some gifts) in Knitting: Completed Projects by PrincessJazz on: January 08, 2007 06:56:58 PM
My brother is a member here on craftster and he goes by the name Padawan because he is a Jedi.  He has the padawan haircut (little braid down the side, ponytail in the middle of the back of his head, short hair everywhere else) and he wears full Jedi robes which he sewed himself.  So for Christmas I wanted to knit him something Star Wars.  He does not like scarves so I knitted him The Force instead.  A scarf, this is not.  It has a light side and a dark side and you must choose how to use it.  Even though you cannot always see evidence of it, you know it's there.

(Okay really, it's an illusion scarf but don't tell him. Shhh.)

modeled by me - looks like a plain scarf

full length shot showing the light side

close-up of the dark side

For my mom I knitted a hat, scarf and mitten set out of Chenille Thick N Quick.  I unravelled a badly knitted shawl from Value Village and scored all this yarn for $1.50 Cdn.

I knitted stockings for my husband and myself.  I made them huge and then felted them. Unfortunately I forgot to take post-felting pics before I packed them away but luckily my husband modeled for some pre-felting pics.

My Dad is a courier driver and has to take his gloves on and off a couple hundred times a day so I made him a pair of fingerless gloves he can just keep on. 

All the above are my own patterns but I used the illusion knitting charts from here: http://strayalleycat.com/blog/images/uploads/meowy_Alphabet_1_ShadowKnit.pdf

I also knitted an illusion scarf for a swap recently but have no pics of my own.  Illusion knitting is so fun!  And much easier than I thought.

Happy Knitting!
