21  My lunch is going to taste sooo good tomorrow! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ChloeZ on: June 12, 2006 01:16:21 PM
So I've been wanting to make a variation of this for a long time, and it worked out after some revisions. My first inspiration came from this:


It's really wide on the bottom 'cause I wanted to fit a sandwich size plastic container flat so that nothing would leak. I've been dreaming of a lunch bag that would do this.

look all that it holds:

And my first cut away handle that I stiffened with chop sticks from our last take out meal (unused of course):

Now I can carry my lunch in style!

22  Wanna see another Nautie Nautaloid?! [Now with Fun Friend!] in Knitting: Completed Projects by ChloeZ on: June 12, 2006 06:26:04 AM
Hurray, I finally finished mine. It's much smaller than I thought it would be but that's easy enough to fix.

What fun!

Here he is:

And another view:

I only made 6 tenticles. I can't wait to send this along to my niece.

23  Re: The Amazing T-shirt Swap! in The Swap Gallery by ChloeZ on: June 05, 2006 05:54:48 PM
Here's the shirt I made for Well.Whiskey.

She said she liked black and green and emo and the band "The Mountain Goats".

So. . . Voila:

That's my hunky fiancee modeling the shirt, I'm sure that the scoop neck looks better on a more feminine body. (ps. in your signature Hertrigger where it says the "the ring" does that mean you got engaged??)

This is the detail. It's an iron on ink jet transfer (they rock!). I did a tape thinking of all the old school broken hearted emo mix tapes.

Can't wait to get my shirt!! Though it's been about a month and it still hasn't gotten here. . . Go ahead and post pictures if you got them, it won't ruin the surprise, everyone should at least see your hard work!

Grrr, I tried to post images earlier but after I had typed it all in and put the image links and hit 'post' craftster was down for maintanance. Very annoying.

So here's my rockin' loot from the wonderful Laura_Borealis:

Mushroom cards, sweet bag, swallow patch and the beautiful "skunk" yarn dyed just for me!

The bag with its very cool LOG lining

Awesome tee shirt #1 that fits great and has great sleeve length

Me in my very sweet shirt and goofy hair. Love the shirt and the back:

I also got some more silk screened fabric to make my own stuff out of. Very nice!

Thank you thank you thank you both Ms. Borealis and Bobolink!

25  My birdy Isabeau in Knitting: Completed Projects by ChloeZ on: May 17, 2006 02:19:43 PM
I made this Isabeau for a swap. The pattern was so easy and wonderful (though I made a few mistakes. . . ). Thanks so much for Sylvie and ChezPlum.com for posting a free pattern Kiss (here: http://www.chezplum.com/?page_id=2 ). I am so buying the tote version to make for myself. 

the rockin' button (swap theme was "forest friends")

the even cooler lining fabric which I hand sewed in - came out better than expected.

Let me know if you have tried the tote pattern!

I couldn't wait for Laura_Borealis to post so here's what I sent her (sorry so many pictures but this was too fun!):

A fawn stuffed animal that was my first ever Thanks to Bumfuzzlerumdum for the pattern!!

Some extra goodies (a teeny tiny pot for forget me nots and a paper owl)

An Isabeau purse with a bird button and cute bird lining fabric (I'll post more pics in the knitting thread later). The pattern is awesome I highly recommend it.

If you want to see more pictures here you go:


You gotta see the lining fabric!

And my favorite: A reverse applique tee shirt. I can't wait to make one for myself -- I hope it fits!

So my wonderfully awesome fiancee works part time at a YMCA and made the following to cheer up a crying little girl. Too bad she doesn't like bunnies!! He's so proud of it I promised to post it on crafster.

Made from one latex glove with love:

the front

the side

and the cute bunny behind.

feel free to tell my loved one how awesome his creation is  Wink

Here's what I got from Flamingo Fuzz:

that's moi in all of my accessories! Star sunglasses, a very cute purse that says "dream on" with a shooting star. red white and blue star earings and a fun necklace and bracelet! Oh and my favorite thing for some reason - a pink armband!

and the rest of the awesome goods! A heart with stars on it for me to paint, some wearable candy with stars on the package (yum!!). A moon and stars stamp, a mirror with stars, very nice! A stained glass shooting star and some fun funky black wooden rock stars.

Thanks so so so much, you've made my first swap awesome!! Cheesy

Thanks too to Megaknits for organizing Wink

29  Nautical Star tee-shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by ChloeZ on: March 24, 2006 04:14:52 PM
My first iron-on shirt ($2.25 from target - mossimo too!) that I made for the Star Swap Round 3 (swaps are very fun!)

detail of the front bottom. The big star got a little messed up when I ironed on the small ones (I touched the iron on part without the protective tissue. . . ). The star points were hard to stick down, I hope they stay!

The back neck area. Hope ya'll like it  Smiley

30  Starlicious Tote with reverse applique in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ChloeZ on: March 24, 2006 04:10:14 PM
Hurray - my second bag!!

I made this for the Star Swap Round 3

The outside fabric is an upolstery remnant (hurray), the interior fun stars with a small pocket. The red is a bright red not really pink. . .

I did the stars with reverse applique, they will fray over time but that's the intention.

Next time I will use interfacing to stiffen more.

Hopefully it looks more rock star than wizard  Wink. Let me know what you think!
