I used contact paper and etching cream, and applied it with a stencil brush.
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Dr. Who etched glasses 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.  ^_^
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Christmas presents are finished! (four pics) 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...
4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Obligatory Jack Skellington pumpkin 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.  ^_^
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / "Subtle" Elliott Smith shirt 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!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: double-tie wrap pants (too many pics) on: August 31, 2007 11:15:02 PM

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Sunny Bag on: August 23, 2007 10:31:59 PM
That bag is fantastic!  I love it.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Car bag and frog bag 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!
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Eddie Izzard Swap Round2 Gallery! on: July 19, 2007 11:33:03 PM
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!

Glad you liked them, athenaknits!  I had so much fun making the stencil...and everything else, really!  ^_^
