21  like Happy Hooker's frou frou, but for knitting in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by amyb444 on: July 26, 2006 02:18:20 PM
When I saw the Frou Frou cardigan in the Happy Hooker book, I fell in love with it. But alas, I suck at crocheting, so I have been waiting for a similar knitting pattern. I found this one today, and it's free! I thought I'd post it just in case anyone else has been waiting for a knitted FrouFrou-like cardi.

22  Re: Help with ribbon belt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by amyb444 on: July 12, 2006 03:51:15 AM
I drew a picture...

When I'm picturing this belt buckle, I'm picturing something like in A. Is that right? If it is like that, maybe you could attach it to the dress itself, and use it kind of like a belt loop. That way the ribbon belt wouldn't have to support the weight of the buckle.

Another idea I had is you could shop around for a cheap womens belt that is thinner than the ribbon you're using. Some skinny belts were really popular in the last couple years, so it shouldn't be too hard to find them at outlet type stores. With a womens sized belt, you could hack off the buckle part and still have it be long enough. Then you could sew 2 pieces of ribbon together at the top and bottom, like in B. (I drew the sewn lines but forgot to lable those. I did label the ribbon pieces because I'm terrible at MS Paint.) Then you could put the skinny belt inside it, and you know it's sturdy enough to support the weight of the buckle.

Here's the bag I made for the Black Cat Swap.

Thank you so much for the tutorial, this bag turned out better than any I've done before! The sides look more like the others posted before mine, but I couldn't get it to stand up that way because I think I used thinner interfacing or something. And as a side note, each of these fabrics was $1 per yard on clearance, so with the felt cat and the button, I made it for under $3!!

I'm finally posting pics of the goodies Lily, Smaug, and I received from mizbabette!
She sent us two fuzzy catnip bell toys, which the kitties adore! Here's an action shot...

Here is Smaug in the "gangsta" collar (as I call it!), which is ironic because we always call him a rapper. It says "Bad Luck" and he definitely is.  Wink

I don't have a good pic of the black-cat-head-shaped purse, but trust me, it is cute! Here it is with the toys as eyeballs!

And here's a closeup of the ittle kitties lining the purse. Too cute!

This was both my and mizbabette's first swap, and it was a lot of fun!! Thank you so much mizbabette!  You've been an awesome partner. Cheesy

plus, all the cool, crafty women wear fabric pads  Wink
I have noticed that! I had never heard of them before craftster. It would be fun though to go with her to the craft store and pick out cute fabrics (from the $1- I LOVE the $1 bin fabrics!!).
kuruku made some really cute pads for the vagina swap. That would make having your period so much happier and cheerful!
Here are the ones she made for the swap...

That purse is...oh my gosh. I love it! I also really like those fabrics.

mizbabette got her package today, but I will give her some time to take and post pictures if she'd like. Now that she has it though, I can post a pic of Lily making the purse I sent her.

27  embarassingly simple shoe revamp- 2 pairs- lots of pink- IMG heavy in Shoes: Completed Projects by amyb444 on: May 02, 2006 09:35:45 PM
I have two pairs of shoes that I never ever wear. They both have this awful mauve color, and when I wear mauve I feel like an old lady. (You would think I wouldn't buy mauve then, but nope, I fall for its allure at the store.)  On the other hand, I really love non-mauve pinks, so I got some ribbon and went crazy.

Pair #1- brown suede-ish loafer style shoes. Whenever I wore these, I felt about twice my age, and like a yuppy.

So I ripped out the mauve velvet ribbon stuff. (This ended up being really gross because I had worn these shoes once when it rained, and the suede stuff had gooped onto the velvet and was all sticky.

Now they are these obnoxiously bright hot mamas. I heart them a lot.

Yea, I know I just changed out the ribbon, but it's a big difference to me because now I'll actually wear them.

Pair #2- mauve ballet slipper-y shoes.
These I had at least gotten more wear out of, but the bows and I didn't get along, and I didn't like the color. Do not be deceived by the lies my camera tells you- they are mauve.

I ripped the bows off, and hot glued some ribbon on. I'm not sure what I think about these as much, but they'd been in the back of my closet for about a year so it's not like they'll get worn any less than they were. On the right shoe (the left one in the pic because my legs are crossed), I tried hot gluing the ribbon on while the shoe was on my foot (which isn't as stupid as it sounds, I promise! I didn't get burned), but the ribbon ended up too baggy. On the left shoe (right in pic), I didn't do this, but I should have left a little bit more slack because it's a tiny bit snug.

This is my first successful recon, so yay!

28  Re: black cat swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by amyb444 on: March 31, 2006 10:06:48 AM
I have two black kitties, Smaug and Lily. Smaug is all black, and Lily has a little white spot on her chest, and white hair in her nether regions because her hair grew back white after they spayed her (she also has some white armpit hair somehow). My babies are about four months apart, and they aren't related, but they've grown up together so they're really close. When I got them declawed, they insisted on riding in the same carrier! My mom tells everyone she has grandkittens.

Here is Smaug, helping with my knitting. We got him from a friend of mine who had four kittens. He came up to me and fell asleep in my lap.

And here is Lily being cute. She's usually not this kitten-like, so we had to take a picture while she wasn't complaining. The vet calls her "opinionated." She was a stray outside my MIL's house one Christmas, and she was completely emaciated, and we took her home.

For the swap, my original thought was things decorated with black cats, because my kitchen is done in black cats (I even found some handtowels that are all black with a cat face on them, and I'm going to make curtains for the mini-window.) But I also think it would be cool to do things for the cats. I like the collar idea, but my cats are "naked" because they can take collars off. I even got them some for small dogs that don't have the cat safety release, and they took them off. Speaking of those, did the person who designed them even have a cat?? I've never had a cat who would wear one for more than a couple days before taking it off.

Oh, and I think that any kitty mommy (or daddy) can join the swap! I think being a black cat is an attitude more than anything. And if we do make treats for the babies, I wouldn't want to leave out any little kitties.

29  Re: zoloft bottles in What the heck can I do with THIS? by amyb444 on: November 22, 2005 07:59:14 AM
Here is my beautiful artistic rendering of what they look like.

I thought it would be amusing to make something out of the front panels that say Zoloft.  My first thought was a belt, a la the Starburst wrapper ones, but I think the plastic's too thick for that and it wouldn't have enough give.  I didn't know what else to make, but I thought it would be funny to have something made from them.
