21  Pink Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by SarahJSaturday on: May 04, 2008 09:06:42 PM
I crocheted a short sweater using some baby pink yarn. No pattern, but I used the peacock stitch from The Crochet Stitch Bible (great reference. i love that book!)

now for the important part:

(don't mind my deranged smile. My friends camera took a whole minute to finally take the photo. The longer I keep a smile the stranger it becomes)

the back:

I love hearing what people think so leave me a comment! =)

22  my first spin: Newspaper Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by SarahJSaturday on: May 03, 2008 04:59:53 PM
I made myself a high whorl spindle and I've spinned on a friends once but this is my first completed project.




and I also made a little bowl out of it to test it out. It's not that easy to work with to be honest. Maybe knitting would be easier.



Sorry for the crappy photos. All I have is a camera phone.

23  high whorl spindle in Spinning: Completed Projects by SarahJSaturday on: April 28, 2008 05:08:16 PM
On the bus to Yosemite a classmate taught me how to spin on a high whorl spindle. It came pretty naturally and an hour had passed without me even realized. So I decided to make a spindle, because I'm cheap and it gives me some wicked bragging rights.





materials:
-oak dowel. it being oak was unnecessary, that's just what I had.
-small cup hooks
-wooden closet pole hanger. It came in a pack of two, one being completely useless for this project. I wandered around the hardware store looking for something I could use until I happened upon it. The center was already drilled out for mounting it in closets. I had to make the hole slightly larger but it wasn't hard.
-sand paper.
-something to cut the dowel.

was super easy to make. I don't know how well it will work since I can't afford fiber right now. Everything but the closet mounting kit I already had so total cost was $3 USD.

Any design flaws you guys can see?

24  Hand Carved Crochet Hooks in Crochet: Completed Projects by SarahJSaturday on: April 28, 2008 04:56:34 PM
I have a lot of free time and a carving knife:

good ol' wood. approx sixe M. 6 inches.






these two are made from recycled chopsticks. They're not stained. that's their natural color. The light wood on the bottom is a different type of wood. Approx size H. First one is 6 1/2 inches. Second is 7.





the other one



What do you think? =)

25  Papel Picado/Dia de los Muertos! (IMAGE HEAVY plus one ADULT IMAGE) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by SarahJSaturday on: April 15, 2008 02:54:31 PM
To the kiddos: don't look at this. There is a stylized image of a part of a certain gender's anantomy


I made a lot of these for a Dia de los Muertos fiesta that did not end up happening. Papel Picado technically means punched paper, which is how it is traditionally made. It is often made out of tissue paper, making many sheets at once. I used bright colored construction paper (the colors did not show up well, what would you expect with a cell phone camera?) and sharp pointed scissors, then switched to an exact knife for the more elaborate ones.

The first ones I made. I made about 15-20 of ones like these before I decided to make them look nice. Still, they have personallity!









Here is where I switch to the exacto blade:

Stained Glass Sun


Sunset on the Ocean


!Musica! (in reality this is black. phone decided it would look green/bluish.)


How I wish to catch a fish!


Guess what this is? hehe..


Hanging on my wall


Spiderwebs on my wall!






The newer ones:

Based on the Bouncing Souls Anchor, which I recently got tattooed on my left foot.


Queen of Heart



I made a lot more but they have run away to someplace. I love making these, it is extremely detailed, time consuming and cheap! about 1.50 for a package of construction paper that I'm still using. I'm going to make a lot more and actually have that Day of the Dead party that didn't happen last year.

I love hearing what people think, so please leave a comment and thanks for looking at my obscenely long post!

26  Old FO: Mario, Scarves, and a few amigurimigurimiamigurimis (image heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by SarahJSaturday on: April 08, 2008 01:24:09 PM
I made this a few years back for a christmas present. It became a pillow but I forgot to take a pic of it finished but you folks are creative. Imagine it finished!  Grin


And the back side:



This was another christmas present for a friend who likes powerpuff girls so it was sort of inspired by that.




I got the idea for this scarf from Fruits, a book of japanese street fashion.



Here is a tiny wolf!

and another view

I gave it away to a friend



A lion! grrr.


and DUMBLEDORE! inspired by potter puppet pals, but before Niel cicierga started using real puppets.



An elephant that I gave to a friend.



and Sheepy the Sheep! It's head and feet are knitted but the body is crocheted. He was killed in a tragic attack by a high school freshman
