1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / What's a SCARFSTACHE you ask? on: February 07, 2008 12:20:01 PM
So I'm not sure where to really put this, it's not exactly classic needlepoint, but I used a crochet hook so I'm stickin it here!
It's 2008's must have accessory! Well to me anyways. My friends and I are obsessed with mustaches and together we thought of these pins to attach to our scarves:
This is El Bandito prototype

El Bandito v.2

The Super Mario

So far other styles include: The John Waters, The Burt Reynolds/Uncle Touchy, The Ned Flanders, and The Hitler.

All it took was pin backs & glue, black yarn, a tiny ass crochet hook, patience, and that plastic grid stuff for needlepoint or whatever else it's used for. I wanted to latch hook them, but alas the grid was too small.

Pretty Epic.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Piratey Dress I made from a t-shirt & fabric on: June 29, 2006 05:24:07 PM
I started this last week and I wanted something to wear to a Tiger Army show Tues night so I finally finished it up.  The girl who busted in on me in the bathroom (broken lock) totally loved it!
It was a bit shorter than I anticipated so no bending over for me but I put some leggings under it and I was good to go. It was my first go at something like this and I was surprised it held up so well. I ripped it at the bar a bit but this is what safety pins are for!
It's made from a black t-shirt and some extra stripey fabric I had laying around. The sleeves of the shirt are now the cross over part in the front. It was so fun to wear something I made to a show!

So here's me after the show, screwing around in my room. Oh and I'm a huge dork so excuse me for it being so obvious!

Whadya think?
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Tropical Knitting Needle Roll on: June 10, 2006 05:00:17 PM
Finally! This is my most complicated sewing project to date, and it wasn't even that hard. It turned out a lot better than I thought. This was a birthday gift for my cousin who is a dog and cat groomer and lived in Hawaii for a while and is obsessed with all things Hawaiian. So when I found this cheesey tropical cat with surfboards fabric, I knew it was for her. The pics don't really do it justice, the color looks funky. She didn't believe me when I said I made it for her. So uh......ta da!

All rolled up
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted vagina! on: May 16, 2006 01:06:08 PM
Mmmkay I know there's been other posts about this but here we go anyways.
I busted this out last night. I must buy more pink yarn...........This one is just a free floating vaginal entitiy, the next one I make is gonna be an ipod holder, or coin purse.

These pics really don't do it justice!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Felt Wallet: Green Leopard Brass Knuckles on: May 07, 2006 02:26:42 AM
Tonight I finished my first attempt at anything so functional.  I made a felt wallet based on the design from Bazaar Bizarre, with extra card holders added plus an extra lining in the billfold for looks. It's my first attempt at a project from this book and I'm quite happy with it. I made this for my friend Sasha because when I saw the green leopard print at Michael's I thought of her. She's obsessed with brass knuckles so I dowloaded a pic to make a stencil, cut it out and slapped in on there. The brass knuckles are glued, the extra inside billfold lining is both sewn at the top and glued for stability, everything else is sewn together. It's a basic trifold wallet, and I sewed some velcro on it for closure.
All folded up.

The outside, unfolded

The inside.

What ya'll think?
