well, toyshirts received and said that i could post pictures of everything i made. he seems pretty happy with everything so that's a good thing Smiley

first up, a tiny chinese take out box magnet made entirely of paper/tissue paper and mod podge

next was my travel knitting tin made from an altoid tin. i included shrinky dink stitch markers, two dowel cable needles, a darning needle, nail file, scissors, needle gauge (made from tissue paper and mod podge), a magnet, a couple safety pins, a sheet of knitting abbreviations, a small pencil and paper for notes, a small plastic crochet hook, and a tape measurer.

i also tried my best to paint the logo of his choice tobacco onto an ashtray that i saved from the local goodwill store

a duct tape robot of love.. who happens to double as a condom dispenser

and finally the cover to one of the cd's i made him. this one was made specifically to go with the robot of love! i only put two songs on it but it made me laugh.. "safe sex" from up*syndrome, and "love machine" from the miracles

anyways, i had a blast with this swap! thanks again to knichole for organizing Smiley and to toyshirts for putting up with all my pm's for details into his life.. i wanted to try and do something that was office related, but i just couldn't figure anything out  Undecided

16  Re: quickie dress that anybody can make in Clothing Sewalongs by hgflower on: August 03, 2006 04:19:54 PM
so i finally made one of these dresses and i totally feel like i just made it into the cool kid's club for craftster!
don't mind that i'm wearing a black tank top under my dress, i'm still a bit self conscious, plus i really don't have much cleavage to show  Tongue

for a dress that only cost me about 8 bucks for fabric, i'm really happy with how this turned out! i'm still trying to figure out the different ways to tie the dress and not have the back look too funky.

17  Re: what would you put inside a knitting travel/survival tin? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by hgflower on: July 30, 2006 01:38:55 AM
okay, sorry to bring back an old thread, but i *just* finished making my first travel knitting tin for someone other than myself and i had to share! this was made for the boy-girl swap, so toyshirts.. if you're post stalking me, look away now!!

my theme for this tin was ancient egypt since toyshirt's quote is
"Since when do boys knit?"
"Umm... Ancient Egypt."

so here's the front of my tin (i used an altoid size tin)

everything inside the tin


which includes two handmade cable needles (i forget the sizes), measuring tape, scissors, nail file, paper, pencil, stitch markers (shrinky dinks are my friend!), a VERY strong magnet, an extra safety pin to use as a stitch holder, a small crochet hook, stitch abbreviations, and handmade needle gauge.

here's a close up of the stitch markers and the needle gauge system i came up with

for the needle gauge, bascially you just pull off the size you want and see if it fits around your needle. i bought a boyle interchangable knitting needle kit, so i took all my needles and wrapped tissure paper around it so it fits perfectly. they're flexible and yet maintain their shape. i was very happy with how this came out!

and finally this is how everything looks when you fit it all inside the tin Smiley

alright, i think that's it! love to hear your comments Smiley thanks again for all the advice!! even though toyshirts said that he's not knitting much at the moment, i'm sure that he'll find some use out of this tin.. since all his craftster quotes have to do with guys knitting anyways!

18  Re: Just this quick skirt i made last nite. pic heavy in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by hgflower on: July 21, 2006 09:25:59 AM
the best way for me to do pic's on craftster is to use the free picture hosting ----->
once it's uploaded there, just copy and paste the link for each picture into your post Smiley

it should have [IMG] around both ends, if that makes any sense

19  Re: my first attempt at a magic wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hgflower on: July 20, 2006 12:32:24 AM
Now, if I can just find a magic wallet that I can use as a reference!

this is the basic idea for how to do the elastic bands

so you're basically attatching one side to one of the pieces, and the other end goes to the opposite side of the other piece. of course when you do it, make sure that the elastic is tight enough to hold money in, and the pieces should fit side by side when you're not stretching it. also, try not to have the elastic overlap too much on the sides, i did mine a little too close so they kinda snag on each other when you flip the wallet. did i make any sense? anyways, i hope it helps a little Smiley

20  my first attempt at a magic wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hgflower on: July 18, 2006 10:23:16 AM
so i sold some stuff for a friend on ebay and today i'm having lunch with her to give her the money. being the crafty friend that i am, i had to make a wallet for the money so i wouldn't just be handing her a boring wad of cash (although i have to admit.. money is never boring)  i used only materials that i already had at home: fabric, cardboard, elastic, sewing machine, my own crappy hand stitching; and i had an old magic wallet for reference. so onto the pictures!

here's the front, along with the two pockets for cards. as you can tell, the front pocket is a bit wonky, but it does the job fine Smiley

the back, after i got frustrated with the pockets, i decided to go for a minimalist kinda look.. with no pockets.

the "magic" in action!

and finally a size reference for the thickness of the magic wallet (as shown with a fine tip sharpie)

and in case you didn't like the wallet, here's a picture of my poor old doxie enjoying her new pillow bed complete with a pillow case made by me out of some fabric i wanted to make pj pants out of.. but the bed was more important
