1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pink and Brown Thread Necklace on: March 10, 2008 03:30:23 PM
This is for a swap on Swap-bot. The recipient said pink and brown is one of her favorite color combinations and I just happened to have thread in those two colors.

The pattern is in the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of Crochet Today.
I think it came out looking very nice. Hope she likes it.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Beaded Felt Heart on: December 14, 2007 05:35:03 PM
This is a Christmas ornament I made with couched wire and a variety of green seed beads leftover from other projects.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mr Peanut Man on: December 10, 2007 06:54:24 PM
First, let me say that I did not make him, but I wanted to share him with you all. I have had him about 20 years, a gift from my Grandma. I think he is adorable.

Hope you can read the (actual typewritten) tag.
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Some of my ATC's on: October 29, 2007 08:07:52 PM
These are some ATC's that I have made.The first two are abstract drawings.

The next two are collaged from bits of paper trimmed from fliers from school and church.

The last one is a paper clip attached with beaded thread.

Hope you like them.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Painted buttons on: October 15, 2007 07:40:10 PM
These are some old buttons that I painted with fingernail polish. I know most of you out there probably have much more interesting colors of nail polish.

I got the idea from a wonderful book called fabric leftovers by D'Arcy-Jean Milne.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag from jacket on: October 15, 2007 07:30:44 PM
This is a bag I made for my mom from a hand-me-down jacket that my aunt gave me. I moved the buttons from the jacket into the stitching pattern that was already there. The lining is from a hand-me-down shirt from my mom.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Snowman Pin on: October 13, 2007 06:44:12 PM
Here is a pin I made using this pattern:

I made a few changes to the pattern to make it work for me in thread. I used sc for the second row of the small circle and for the part of the edging that goes around the large circle. I also used felt for the hat and nose since I didn't have thread in those colors.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Glasses Cases from Reclaimed Yarn on: October 13, 2007 06:32:53 PM
These are some eye/sun glass cases I made from plastic canvas (again) and yarn I reclaimed from a thrift store sweater.

I don't stitch all the way to bottom fold, just leave about an inch open (I do overcast the edge) so the plastic canvas doesn't crack.
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gift Tags from Page-a-Day Calendar on: September 17, 2007 08:37:29 PM
These are some tags I made from last year's Mary Englebreit page-a-day calendar. As you can see from the stack to the right (mostly off-camera) I went a little crazy with this.

I also made some from some old stamps and a scrap from somewhere.

10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Milk Jug Satchel on: August 01, 2007 07:51:26 PM
I did not make this. My son received it to put prizes in for a summer reading program at our church. I thought it was such a good idea, I wanted to share it with you all.

You could do the same thing with almost any sort of plastic container.

It is easy to cut the plastic jug. Punch holes in the top edge. Crochet around the top. Attach drawstring top.

Hope I am not stepping on the toes of anyone else who may have posted the same thing.
