1  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Knitting meetup in St Cloud 9/18 on: September 17, 2008 02:36:45 PM
I'm getting together with some of my Ravelry friends tomorrow night to knit. I wanted to extend the invitation to any craftster gals who might be interested!
We're meeting at my apartment building either in the community room, or in my actual apartment (depending on whether my hubby makes it home from work in time) at 7:30 pm.
If you're interested, please PM me for more details.

I made this little dude for a swap. I named him Levi, after a boy I loved in 3rd grade.

I added a lot of details, like real metal earrings. Here's a close up of his ears and embroidered face.

I like how he turned out, and was kinda sad to send him away. Cry
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Twine is fine! on: May 07, 2007 10:03:45 PM
I recently got an amazing crochet book called "Simple Crochet" by Erika Knight. In it, she uses a lot of unusual materials such as jute and twine. While none of these projects used her patterns, I was inspired to try crocheting with medium-weight kitchen twine. It makes a stiff, sturdy fabric that is great for things that need to stand up straight.

Small basket:

Best of all, twine is so cheap that all three projects cost less than $10 combined!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / It's a blizzard! on: November 18, 2006 10:22:39 AM
I'm pretty new to crochet, so I was darn pleased with myself when I made these snowflakes:

Goooooooo winter!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pin cushion for mama on: October 08, 2006 10:47:37 AM
Mama-in-law, actually. I made it as a birthday gift! Her name is Sally, hence the "S". Hand sewn out of wool felt, with ploy-fill and poly-pellets inside.

6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / lil' punkins on: September 17, 2006 12:31:24 PM
The autumn bug has bitten, and I'm feeling like going on hay rides and drinking hot apple cider. So I made some little pumpkins! The marbled effect on the larger one comes from mixing several shades of orange wool.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / super felt pachyderm on: May 26, 2006 05:46:18 PM
I made this guy out of wool felt and poly-fil. I challenged myself to make a full-fledged 3-D stuffie (not just sewing front to back and filling) without using a pattern. It was hard work, but I think it turned out well!

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / little felt bear on: May 19, 2006 08:21:02 AM
I made this little guy to top of a pile o' presents I'm giving my friend at her baby shower. He's wool felt, and I used a blanket stitch around his edges (my favorite!). Im especially fond of his button eyes.
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Jonesin' for wool felt - need advice on: April 12, 2006 08:31:33 AM
I'm seriously considering ordering like $75 worth of wool felt. I found 3 different samplers from Joggles.com, made by National NonWoven. Each sampler has 15 different colors in 12" X 18" sheets and costs $25.50.

Is this a total rip-off? Does anyone know where I can get a lot of different colors of decent quality felt for cheap? I've got a million ideas that I want to start working on. Tongue
10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / oops, I laid an egg on: April 11, 2006 02:46:59 PM
Since I haven't yet come up with some insanely ingenious new incarnation of felted wool, I will make random cute things as they come into my head.

*ploooop* (the sound of popping out an enormous egg)
