1  Vegan Matcha Cookies in Vegetarian / Vegan by katherine.m on: May 18, 2006 11:17:16 PM
Okay, I noticed there wasn't anything on here relating to matcha cookies so I thought I'd throw this up. I made these tonight. My recipe is modified from the "Matcha-Matsu-White-Choko Cookies" recipe. You can find it at http://blog.jagaimo.com/archive/2005/05/11/389.aspx.

I left out the fancy parts and managed to "vegan-ize" the recipe quite easily.

Plain Matcha Cookies

cup Earth Balance Spread
tsp salt
cup Taikoo unrefined golden granulated sugar
1 egg replaced (1/4c. applesauce mixed with 1/2tsp. baking powder)
tsp. vanilla (the fake stuff because I'm not rich!)
1 tsp. matcha powder (found in the tea section at the Chinese superstore near my house)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup flour

Cream butter with salt and sugar.
Add matcha, "egg" and vanilla and mix until consistent.
Stir in baking powder and flour.

Drop in 1 tbsp. portions on a baking sheet with room for 3" diameters.
Bake at 375F (190C) 12-15 minutes until edges are lightly browned.
Rest before removing from sheet.
Yields 16-20 cookies.

I ended up with exactly 20 little cuties.

Unfortunately I don't have a before picture. Though I could pin the straps on and that would give a rough idea. Hmm . . . .

Okay, ignore the fact that I Just got in from school and look grumpy.

This is a rough approximation of what it looked like. Though there was about 1 and 1/2 inches more of the green part and it was not snug like it is now (at all, it was rather breezy in the bad way)

3  Hippy dress to hippy skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katherine.m on: May 18, 2006 02:36:27 PM
I got this amazing dress from a friend of mine at a clothing swap we had. I loved the fabric, but alas, the dress was too big for me in the bust area (oddly enough that applies to a lot of clothes). So after a few weeks of just staring at it trying to figure out what to do I decided that it would work as a skirt. I wanted to retain as much of the fabric as possible and this seemed to be the best way to do that.

So here is a shot of the full skirt.

And a detail one of the fabric which I obsess over every time I look at it.

And the waist band which I did by using about an inch and a half roll over to get the right level. I only wanted a certain amount of the green patterned part showing when I was done. And then used 3/4 inch no roll elastic just threaded though and sewn at the ends when I got it to around the right size.

And ignore the fact that I'm lazy and copied some of the text directly off my blog. Really . . . I'm supposed to be studying right now, not being an internet dork, but I can't help it!

4  Bright scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by katherine.m on: March 14, 2006 08:50:14 PM
Okay, I figured out how to knit two years ago. And I made a few small items, mostly scarfs. As relaxing as knitting was sometimes I think I'm just way to impatient for it. Though I managed to finish this scarf for my sister. It was knit on gigantic needles and I used a really thick yarn. But it's so pretty.

Here is my new baby. I just traded my mom for it because she found it too confusing (she got the really simple singer, good machine, it served me well). I'm still in the process of breaking this one in though, I'm actually using the instruction manual for this one, which is new for me.

and sorry the picture is a little pale, it was a really really sunny day and the craft table is right next to a big window.

6  Heart bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by katherine.m on: March 09, 2006 12:40:47 PM
Okay, this did not turn out as well as I would have liked it too. I will blame a combination of my incompetence, the use of interfacing (which I have never used before), and the use of a new sewing machine (really really confusing, but I'm getting the hang of it).

It was made on rather short notice. My sister reminded me yesterday that it was our mom's birthday and it was my turn to make the gift. So she gets a handy pencil case/cosmetic bag/thing to carry stuff. Oh well, it's cute so I suppose it will have to do.

7  The gingerbread bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by katherine.m on: March 01, 2006 03:42:47 PM
This is probably the 5th bag I've made in the past 2 months (after a 4 year sewing hiatus). I got the pattern worked out and everything sewn up within an hour and a half, which is a new record for me! It's a little bit floppy, I haven't attempted to use interfacing for anything yet. But it has one big zippered pouch and three smaller open pouches on the inside.

And it landed a goofy name because it's the colour of gingerbread and has ric-rac ties at the side.

8  Based off the circle skirt tutorial. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by katherine.m on: March 01, 2006 03:32:48 PM
I saw the circle skirt tutorial on here and decided to try it out. I only had to make minor alterations because my fabric had no stretch to it at all. I had to make the waistband extra wide and used a button closure in the back. The little pleat thing in the front was initially an accident (sewing drunk is not always a good idea) but it incorporated it's self into the design well enough. And lucky for me a friend liked the skirt so much she has since commissioned me to make one for her as well.
