82  Fish-cushion! in Completed Projects by sweaterbrau on: July 04, 2006 11:45:34 PM
I was thoroughly inspired by the pincushion swaps going on around these here parts so I decided to make my own.  Dig my fish-cushion:

His little button eyes are my favorite part!  Cheesy

83  Re: THE GENERIC BOYFRIEND GIFT THREAD: A How-To! in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by sweaterbrau on: July 01, 2006 11:08:45 PM
I've made many a gift for my boyfriend, some of which include a little chocolate box decorated like a romantic place setting for 2, a miniature guitar case painted with a portrait of myself with a little guitar pick made from drum cymbol inside, a few cakes decorated by moi, a hand-knit scarf, a wallet, and quite a few cards. Here's a picture of one of the cards I made him. It says ani ohevet otcha in the bottom corner, meaning "I love you" in Hebrew (he's Israeli). It's not perfect but I still like it.

It's done solely in ink and watercolors. <3

84  2 Layer Cutie in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sweaterbrau on: July 01, 2006 09:37:59 PM
I did this stencil a few weeks ago. It was pretty much the first one I've ever done. It's nothing special, but I think it turned out pretty cute.

85  Self Potrait Pumps in Shoes: Completed Projects by sweaterbrau on: July 01, 2006 09:17:25 PM
I tried to post this in the shoes board, but it wouldn't let me. There wasn't an option to post a new topic...it was odd. So here you go, these are some pumps that my mom was throwing away that I spiced up a bit.
It's a little self portait done in acrylic (yeah it will scratch off, but I'm looking for something to put over it to protect it).

Here's a close-up...the shoe isn't as wonky as it looks in that picture.

87  Cable Knit Clutch with Ball Clasp (now with tute on page 2!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by sweaterbrau on: June 23, 2006 07:04:09 PM
I originally bought this yarn to make a shrug but found the pattern too miserable to follow... I ripped it out and began to make this little clutch. I had a little inspiration from this thread but wanted mine to be a little more luxurious. I made the pattern up on my own and could try to post a tutorial if anyone's interested. I haven't lined it yet due to my lack of fabric, but that'll come within the next few days.

This picture shows the shape a little better.

And here's another just for size reference (and I love this bag so I wanted to take a million pictures!)


This is actually a really good project to learn cable knitting on. It's easy, knits up quick, and looks a lot more impressive than it is!

88  Colorful Raggedy Scrap Scarf! (IMG HEAVY) in Knitting: Completed Projects by sweaterbrau on: June 14, 2006 07:45:51 PM
This is a scarf I made a few months ago out of hundreds and hundreds of strips of scrap fabric. I just tied the strips together, making for a very raggedy look, and knit it entirely in garter stitch. This is one of the more gratifying (and mind-numbingly simple) things that I've knit. It has little bits of metallic fabric through it randomly to add some glitz.   Cheesy

The scarf in its entirety.

Close Up #1

Close Up#2

...And modeled by yours truly with a cool flower pin.

I really hope you guys dig it as much as I do!

89  11/18/79! Oh my, VINTAGE! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sweaterbrau on: June 14, 2006 01:16:02 PM
I got some delicious new yarn from my now ex-fiber arts teacher. It's 100% virgin wool and it's dated November 18, 1979. Oh my, I AM EXCITED!!! Ha. I don't have anything in particular in mind for it yet, but I want to use it so bady...I was wondering what kind of ideas this wool conjures up for you guys. I only got one hank of it which I dutifully wound into a tight ball, so it's pretty dense. What kind of wonderful little project could I knit up with this? I was thinking about making a little clutch, or something. Replies with pictures are especially welcome!

This gives you an idea of how much I'm working with, and the color. It's more greeny in real life. It's shown next to my sunglasses because they match Wink.

90  sexy silhouette change purse (now with better pics and silhouette!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sweaterbrau on: June 13, 2006 11:47:50 PM
I made this for a friend of mine.
These are two pictures that turned out better as far as focus and color than the previous 2 I had up. Also, here's the silhouette I used to make the applique type deal:
