1  Noro dread cap in Crochet: Completed Projects by myfeet on: August 20, 2008 12:54:41 PM

This was supposed to be for me but I think it will have to go on etsy because I over shot the size and when it was finished it was twice as big as I had wanted it to be.
It will have to go to some one with dreads it is big.

I used this yarn called Noro that I got at the knitters connection in Columbus OH.

the pattern is done up in half doubles. I wish I could wear it because it is so awesome.
I think I am going to have to order some more of that yarn I loved working with it!

2  My craft room and links to all the ones I could find! (pic heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by myfeet on: August 24, 2007 06:21:20 PM
There are alot of pics.... I am proud of myself.

So Finally I finished my craft/ computer/ guest room! It's an average sized room with a huge purpose. I completely decluttered (4 lg garbage bags and a "do you want this?" fest.)

The sudden need to "fix" the room was brought on by some friends coming to stay for the weekend, we decided to get a futon and house them in this room,then I gave the room a critical look and said  to myself "they'll think I am crazy."
and with no help from the man (except for the lugging things out of the apartment kind of help) this is what I came up with:

This would be the main craft part of the room, notice the chord coming from behind the table I affixed one of those command chord things back there so now I don't have to dig behind the table every time I sew!

Here are some closeups
I used 30 count boxes (I work in a music store CDs come 30ct boxes) and taped them together and collaged them, the put various small supplies into empty tea canisters,that I painted.

this is the canisters on there sides and stacked they hold colored pencils, crayons and whatnot.

and the cork board that I painted a island scene on, and have emergency sewing supplies tacked to.

Then the inside of the sewing cart.

and the first closet, its one of those sliding door ones this side has a drawer thing holding my fabric stash and a book dump (like at the bookstore) that holds my yarn stash...  the other side has a filing cabinet, yep I put a filing cabinet in the closet!

here is a futonless wall,

this is the other closet it has blue container that holds my finished projects, a shelf with books and boxes of stationary and "memory stuff" and a shelf dedicated to kitchen stuff we use once a year.
notice there are handbags hanging from the door!

the most genious thing I came up with was that I got a three hole punch and unbound all my mags and whatnot, even the sewing machine manual, and filed them in binders, making it easier to see what I have and it helps that all those clip art books that I have no purpose for aren't always falling all over me!

then the computer part of the room!

So now our guests are going to mistakenly think I am organized, it's a joke I like to play on my friends.
I only wish I had before photos.

more completed craft rooms they are inspirational, or at least they were for me!





Show her yours...

thanks for looking!

I just received and I love Smashergrl!

She sent an awesome reversible bag a pouch and a coffee cozy!

Here is the bag inside and out! I love the fabric!

and the pouch in the same fabulous fabric!

Here is the coffee cozy it has foc on both sides one in pink and one in white. it is crocheted in very small SCs and the accent yarn makes me tickle its so colorful.   

and here it is being modeled by a slimming bottled water that I am about to drink because craftster makes me thirsty!

I thought it was funny because I had planned to make her a coffee cozy but later changed my mind and went in another direction.
And I am excited because I have teeny hands and she didn't use a fat yarn (which makes it impossible to hold the coffee in one hand and say open a door with the other hand).
I would have used a fat yarn because it has never dawned on me not to therefore I have a gazillion unused chunky coffee cozies for people blessed with big hands.
Thanks a load Smashergrl!!!!!!!

4  quick and easy bar in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by myfeet on: June 29, 2007 06:42:19 PM
I took one of those dollar store plastic bookshelves that everyone has laying around, a large piece of fabric about 3 yards, and two loose shelves (like you get to put on wall mounted shelving units) and made this:

Basically I sandwiched the fabric between the two shelves, so it wouldn't slide around (it helps that the color of the shelf coordinates with the fabric),then folded and tucked it so it hung right.
No sew, actually it really didn't require much at all.
and you can store stuff under it, I mostly keep my tea supplies, but if we weren't such lushes we would store our excess alcohol under there like classy folk.

5  our aprons!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by myfeet on: June 29, 2007 06:29:24 PM
So me and the boy love to cook and we never had any aprons so one day I was at Walmart:

The green one is mine his is the blue, but he never uses it and honestly I don't think he like the fabric but he's the type who won't admit it because he knows I worked hard on them and way so excited when I finished them. Maybe one day I'll make him a new more manly one!

6  Not crocheted, but this is where my hook book belongs, I think. in Crochet: Completed Projects by myfeet on: June 29, 2007 06:18:15 PM
I sewed this, but it is very crochet related so I figured that this was the best place for it:

It has a measuring tape ribbon and a pocket for my scissors and stitch markers.

It was a little floppy aroundy then I added some batting, so now it is like a pillow with buckles that holds my hooks, and they don't fall out now!

7  My Awesome Halloween party in Party Planning by myfeet on: April 06, 2007 11:35:40 AM
Me and my boyfriend hold an almost annual Halloween Party here are pics from the last one:
this is everyone who came they all looked awesome in there costumes!

This is me in my Medusa costume. the head dress is made from a bunch of plastic snakes attached to a visor, brim cut off, with floral wire. my fingers hurt so bad once I finally finished!

This is the boyfriend in his Waldo costume. He used a white tee shirt and some masking tape, and spray painted the stripes on. and the hat was crocheted by moi.

This is the Spider pinata that I made and we didn't bust, no one had the heart to.

Here are some of the decorations that I made...
