1  Re: Martha Stewart's Good Things Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by knitchka on: March 22, 2007 11:38:14 AM
I got my package from march - overflowing with good things!

They are, from top center clockwise: 2 art supply organizers, enameled bottles, sewing kit in a jar, eyeglass case with lens cleaner liner, patchwork lavendar pillow, leaf notions, and back-to-basics birdfeeder.

I tried to snap a few flash-free closeups of individual items, but all of a sudden it got really overcast here, so a few of these are kind of dark.

Much needed to protect my painfully expensive new glasses, which I keep knocking off the nightstand. Corduroy!

Great flower fabric. I don't know why, but I just love jars. I store everything in them.

Beautiful patchwork and smells great!

Enameled bottles (painted on the inside). Apparently these are harder to make then Martha lets on.

The art supply organizers, all rolled up and in action. Made from towels - the white one has an herb theme and is the perfect size for crochet hooks (with a few hooks included, even). The brown one has a coffee theme and will be great for paintbrushes.

Two pincushions and a needle holder.

Birdfeeder ... you stick it through the core of an apple and hang it. March wonders whether this will really work ... I'm not sure, but I'm about to find out, because we have a few aging apples in the fridge right now. I have a feeder that holds orange halves, and the birds like those, so why not apples?

Thanks, march! I don't know what I did to deserve so many good things, but it was fun!

In my area, Michael's doesn't carry safety eyes. They have them at JoAnn's, but not the exact size used in the pattern - I think you have a choice between 6 mm and 12 mm, if I recall correctly.

If it won't be given to a child, you can always use buttons for eyes. On my version of Kate, I used some 9 mm black sphere-shaped buttons I bought at WalMart. I posted a photo in the Jess Hutch booklet thread, but here it is again, just so you have an idea of how the button eyes look:

Also, if you do use buttons, I recommend using a small piece of felt as a backing.

ps - LuoLiu, I love the shot of your Kate on the flamingo.

I also missed out on the booklet, but it's nice that those of us who were late to the party on that one can still get a few of her patterns online - the bunny and Kate from knitty. Here are my versions of those. (I did change up the bunny a bit, but the basic head and body shapes are the same).

I love this idea! Thanks for sharing it. I had some vintage sock yarn that I loved - greenish teal flecked with gold - but I thought I'd probably never use it. It worked great for this. I have a favorite pair of headphones that have a 5' long cord that's always getting tangled up and yanked on, so they were a good candidate for the i-cord.

A fast and simple project (great for working on while watching TV!) ... I made the legwarmers from p.124. I substituted Lion Brand Wool-Ease, used smaller size dpns, and the result is a good fit for my skinny legs. I'm usually not a fan of variegated yarns, but the muted colors of this one worked for me.
