1  Whale of a... tshirt. in Needlework: Completed Projects by mackymoo on: March 17, 2008 11:44:32 AM
Although I did not have that much time over spring break for crafting, I was able to add a cute detail to a plain tshirt I had. I just sketched out the design on paper and freehanded it onto the shirt. I think it turned okay, although I can't decide if the whale is too rectangular or not. Or if it is too small in relation to the shirt. What do you guys think?

There's a little more about it on my blog.

2  My (slightly smaller) Lady Eleanor! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mackymoo on: March 11, 2007 09:47:37 PM
I just finished my own Lady E. over spring break and I have to say that this has been my most favoritest project ever ever ever. Everyone should make one.

I used six skeins of Noro Kureyon. I made it with only 4 base triangles instead of seven to make sure it was long enough with only six skeins.

A few pictures, more at my newly redone blog!

Here's my progress. I've got almost thirteen inches. I'm worried it might be too small though. I had to go down to a very small sized needle to get the gauge right, so we'll see. And I'm using acrylic yarn (stashbusting) so I don't think it stretches very well. Also the color of the blue in the picture is way off, it's definitely a dark blue.

Fortune_32, I love the color of yours!

Heh wow my thread came alive again. I had kind of forgotten about it.

Well yes I did finish the socks. They went pretty well actually. Here is a picture of me wearing one. I finished these in March sometime I think. And I don't actually have any pictures of boy wearing them, he liked them though, I think.

And here is a post I made about knitting them.


Dpns aren't so bad. And I really like knitting socks because by the time you're about to get bored of something you're done with it and can do something else. I also knitted some baby socks for a friend of mine who was pregnant. Knitting something that small on dpns can be hard though.

I have yet to try socks with patterns other than basic 2x2 ribbing though. That's on the list somewhere.

Everyone on this board has been sooo helpful though.

Here's my progress so far.

I don't know if you can tell on the last picture, but the first crossover thingy I only wrapped around three times, the rest are all four.

I'm happy with it so far, even if it is a little thick. I want to see other people's!

6  dinosaurs and whales oh my! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mackymoo on: March 03, 2006 02:41:57 PM
So I was inspired by the cool stuff on craftster and a shirt from Delias, so my sister and I decided to add animals to some our own shirts that needs sprucing up.

I like dinosaurs. I just found a good profile pic of a t-rex on google and printed it off. Then I cut out the dino and used it as a stencil to cut out some red felt I had around. I handstitched it on, I don't really know how to sew things by hand so I just made it up.

Just the position on shirt. Sorry for the lack of light.

My sister did most of this one. I copied the whales directly from the Delias shirt and just fiddled with them until the were the right size to make stencils. She sewed them on herself. I think she's planning on putting a heart above the whales out of some pink fabric that looks a lot like the blue fabric.

I think they turned out pretty nice for our first time adding details. What do you guys think?

7  My first skirt! (bet you get that all the time) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mackymoo on: January 25, 2006 04:55:21 PM
So I've been inspired by all you cool people at craftster and I wanted to try my hand at sewing. Also I had to make something for home ec. And here is the result:


Ignore the dirty mirror and the crazy boots and the bad quality and the general messiness.

The pattern is from Simplicity, and everything is from Walmart. Yeah I know, but the fabric was 75 cents a yard. I'm pretty pleased with the result, for my first time. The bottom was a bit frustrating just because it was so long and round. And the bobbin ran out halfway through the last hem and I didn't realize it, so I thought I was done... Eh heh.
