2031  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / pocket creatures... oh, um, that sounds dirty on: January 20, 2006 09:17:49 PM
Check out this post:
It's only polite.

I made one of knitty's toasty pocket creatures, found here:

I think they're rather cute, in addition to being warm and cozy.

here she is hanging out with buddha

anyhoo, I think they work just as well as cute little toys, and I wanna see if anybody else has made any weird little monstery pocket warmers.

Very sophisticated looking!  They're lovely.  Sure to be highly appreciated.

I like it.  It should work really well if you even up the corners.  I'm trying to say this without sounding evil and condescending. Smiley

You don't even need anything complicated to do it.  The parts that are still plain glass, the corners, are heart-shaped.  They meet up and make those neato
four-leaf clover/flower shapes.  Get some normal old paper, cut out one heart from a square corner (so the flat sides of the heart are even), then just place the "stencil" you just made into each corner and either fill in or remove to make them match.  It's a cool design, very simple and pretty.

It's very simple to do.  I freehand the pictures onto the window after sketching them out on paper; for the arches I freehand one fourth of the design onto posterboard and then just flip it back and forth when I trace, that way the arches are even.  The black lines are just acrylic, I put them on first, let it dry, then just fill in the colors like a coloring book picture.  I usually have to go over the outlines again after the colors dry cause I tend to fill in the shapes kinda sloppy.  They aren't sealed cause I get bored with looking at the same design for too long..... when I want to change them I just dampen them a bit (it softens the paint-otherwise it comes off in powdery little flakes... BIG MESS) and scrape them off.

easy and cheap.

I hate venetian blinds.  Curtains need cleaned.  I decided to attack the windows with cheap acrylic paint.  I think they look neato.

This is one of my bedroom windows:

This is the kitchen window I did for me mum:

And this is for my seven-year-old niece:

Whaddya think? Are they worth the whole maybe ten bucks I spent?

Yay, my first post!
