Found an angel, thanks Goldsheepbowl!

There's one flaker in the H2G2 swap, so I'm in need of a swap angel. It's a 6 point swap. An angel located in Europe would be great Cheesy

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pop Tab dress with straps on: June 17, 2007 04:27:23 AM
I actually finished this dress over half a year ago, after working on it for almost a year. It's made from +4000 tabs, which is why it took so took me so long to collect them.
It closes with a ribbon and the skirt part is longer in the back. I forgot to take a picture of the back while wearing it. All the edges are crocheted for extra strength and I think it looks neater.

[UPDATE] here are some better pictures:




I've worn it quite a few times and it is very comfortable to wear. I made the skirt part so you can sit down in it. I've worn it to school and out shopping. I get way crazy comments about it, like 'Is that real metal?' and 'Are you wearing it because you don't feel safe', but it's all cool Tongue
25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Peyote stitch dreadlock sleeves on: June 15, 2007 08:18:23 AM
I made these for my dreads, the smaller ones are from when I just got dreads, when they were still skinny. They've gotten much fatter so it was time to make some bigger ones too:

The zebra/orange was made to match my new clothes Tongue

Back of the bigger stitches, (hed) pe is THE best band ever!
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Matching phone/mp3-player covers on: November 05, 2005 11:58:25 AM
I made these a while ago, and I love them. Too bad I can't knit anything else (with a few exceptions though).


The cellphone cozie has a hole for the antenna (pattern).
27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Kawasaki Rose (Origami) on: November 05, 2005 11:36:19 AM
One of the very few models I can make without having to look up the diagrams. I really should try to remember more diagrams. I used copy paper because I'm one of those people who thinks it's a shame to use expensive origami paper without a good reason (and ends up having tons of it without ever using it).

Nvm the mess on the floor, I'm trying to sort all my stuff out

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another Pop-tab purse on: November 05, 2005 10:01:20 AM
Totally inspired by BT phone home's purse. It's pretty small, but I think I'll make it bigger eventually. I used about 300 pop-tabs and linked them together by cutting one side open.


It totally matches my poptab belt. If I manage to collect enough tabs, I'm going to make a shirt as well Cheesy Ok, I do realize I use 'totally' way too often Cheesy
