1  Dr. Who etched glasses in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by all tomorrows parties on: December 21, 2007 10:51:48 AM
I think this would go here...

So, my other three roommates received knitted gifts, but I couldn't think of something to make for Roommate #4.  One day, I realized that I could combine his love of Dr. Who with the fact that we never have enough drinking glasses.  Three glasses from the Sal-v later (one broke before I could do anything with it)...

One has the TARDIS, the other has a dalek.  Here they are in close-up:

The stencils bled a little bit, but I'm pleased overall.  Roommate #4 later told me that daleks are his favorite.  ^_^

2  Christmas presents are finished! (four pics) in Knitting: Completed Projects by all tomorrows parties on: December 21, 2007 10:45:00 AM
Well, for my roommates, anyway.  Three of them received knitted gifts (I gave the fourth a set of glasses, which I will soon post in the appropriate location).

Roommate #1:

Roommate #1 and I share a great love of Invader Zim, what better to make him than a robot slave of his own?  Pattern is the classic http://www.johnnysstew.com/pattern/gir.html, with minor adjustments of my own.

Roommate #2:

Roommate #2 just got a new iPod nano, and loves pretty things, so I thought this fit.  The design is my own; the lace pattern is adapted from knitty's Hedera.  At the snap, I put five tiny Swarovskis - she told me they are her favorite part of the whole thing.  Here's the interior:

It looks a little lopsided in this one, but it isn't in real life.

Roommate #3:

Roommate #3 is all about being eco-friendly, and had expressed interest in reusable shopping bags, so I made her knitty's Everlasting Bagstopper.

They all seemed pretty pleased, so I deem this round of knitting a success!  Now I just have to finish the fiancee's sweater...

3  Obligatory Jack Skellington pumpkin in Halloween Decor and Parties by all tomorrows parties on: October 07, 2007 07:42:11 AM
Cliche, I know, but everybody's got to do one of these in their life, am I right?

And here's the Pumpkin King all lit up:

I'm just getting into the spirit of things early.  ^_^

4  "Subtle" Elliott Smith shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by all tomorrows parties on: August 31, 2007 11:50:57 PM
So...long story short, my mom is a ridiculously huge Elliott Smith fan.  We're going to a tribute show in Chicago tomorrow night, and she requested that I stencil her a shirt.  "Something subtle," was the exact instruction - something about being too old to wear something emblazoned with his name in public.  This seemed to fit the bill:

She likes it - mission accomplished.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

5  Car bag and frog bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by all tomorrows parties on: August 07, 2007 06:16:34 PM
So my mom commissioned me to make a bag to put books in for a therapist at her office who was going to have a baby back in March.  Well, I guess the therapist liked the bag so much that she wanted me to make a couple bags, one for her niece and one for her nephew.  Since they were so fun to make, I thought I'd share them.  ^_^

This one was for the nephew, who is two and loves cars:

It's just a boxy, straightforward sort of thing, but it's pretty sturdy (essential for when he decides he wants to bring all his cars and trucks along  ^_^).  I also added this:

a couple of elastic loops in the front pocket for storing his two favorite cars, so Mommy doesn't have to go searching through the entire bag for them.

Then, there was this lily-pad purse for the ten-year old niece, who loves frogs:

Since ten is such a weird age and she's not much of a girly girl, I wanted to make something fun enough for a kid, but slightly cool enough to last her into early teen years.  This was my first time using interfacing, and I screwed it up a little, but not too badly.  There was also just enough material left over for a small change purse.  Here's a picture of the lining fabric, because it is just too cute:

Thanks for looking!

I received my stuff from athenaknits? yesterday!  I won't have time to post pics until tomorrow, but I wanted to share one - I was so excited to get my stuff that I put on the t-shirt immediately and took Eddie to see The Decemberists!

The text says, "Bloke in a dress."  I love it.

More to follow!

7  Hemptastic Halter in Knitting: Completed Projects by all tomorrows parties on: May 24, 2007 12:44:12 AM
Based loosely on a tank top I bought last summer.  I liked the criss-cross halter neckline, so I wanted to recreate it.  The body is Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy - I really enjoy the feel of the yarn, and it knits up so nicely!  The orangey yarn I can't remember the name of; I know it's Italian, and has great little wrapped bits that give it texture.  Here it is on...

...and just hanging out on the bed.

Thanks for looking!  ^_^

Finally, the pictures!

Check out the beautiful embroidery!  I love the pattern on the back especially.  The front came out a little more difficult to see in the photo, but there are also stars on the pocket and a sun-like star on the chest.

Thanks muchly, hoxierice!  ^_^

9  Dancing fruit... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by all tomorrows parties on: March 21, 2007 12:50:41 PM
This is a supa-old piece, but it's one of the few I liked from my drawing class.  Oil stick on paper.

I always liked that the oranges looked like they were dancing.  ^_^

10  A few more old ones... (3 pics) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by all tomorrows parties on: March 21, 2007 12:45:28 PM
When I went home for spring break, I found some other 2 year-old glass pieces that I wanted to show off:

My favorite part of this one is the strip of black glass, which I flecked with fine bits of white frit.

Glass casting.  It's kind of weird-looking, but I like it.  Someone in my glass class said they saw a dinosaur shape in the red bit, but I'm not so sure about that.  ^_^

This was for an assignment called "Cup O'Joe" - basically, we had to make some coffee-related design.  It was this whole big thing where we had to use at least 4 layers of glass and build up a ceramic dam around it.  It was like putting together a 3-D puzzle that sucked, and that you had to make the pieces to in the first place.  It's probably the piece I am the most proud of, though.  You can't tell from the picture, but it's a little more than a quarter of an inch thick, with different bits of the cup/coffee in different layers.

I wish I could set up my kiln so I could make more!
