11  Jordy zip pencil pouch AND it's lined! Oooooooo... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Radioactivepenquin on: April 04, 2007 09:23:51 PM
I have a pencil tin, but in my messenger it rattles really loud and rather obnoxiously. All the time. So I had 30-ish minutes to kill before work and I made this up! The outside is a fat quarter of brocade I had lying around the the inside is this fun silky perfume print that I had bits of since I used it in my mom's X-mas present. I based it off of  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63644.0 for the idea and shape, only I didn't shape the sides, even though it looks like it. I kinda botched on of the sides and it turned out like that.

So onto pictures~! (Forgive my cameraphone's picture quality, I didn't have the time to find my digital.)

The outside. I'm in love with this fabric.

Random zipper I had. Not as close in as I'd like, but I'm too lazy to buy a zipperfoot. lol.  Roll Eyes

The inside is SOFT! I'm kinda scared of my mechanical pencils stabbing it and ripping it.  Undecided

Hey all! Wow, there's been no action in this thread!   Undecided Sorry for not updating for a while, we've had some major weather issues lately... to put it lightly.

Here's what I have so far.

And this is what I woke up to this morning.

The sad thing is that it's been like this for the last week. This is Seattle area. I live about an hour away from Seattle. Shocked School's been cancelled in my school district and the Community college I go to for whole time almost. It's really starting to get annoying though, my haircut, dental appt, trip to Seattle and other things have been cancelled.

...Sledding on cardboard boxes in Tacoma almost makes up for it though.  Grin

I finished mine!  Cheesy I was way excited! I wore it to school yesterday and got a few compliments. My dad really liked it too! I'm thinking of making a ton more since I'm a matching spaz.  Roll Eyes I really love this button though! I found it in a tin in my mom's/my sewing area. I have a few more too.  I'm really liking everyone else's! Some of the color choices are wonderful! Who would've though that the calorimetery would've become so popular! lol.

Made with this pretty burgundy arcylic I had lying around. I have a lot more and I'm thinking of making a matching scarf that buttons around the neck and glovelets. Cheesy

14  Knit.1 Heart Tank in Knitalongs by Radioactivepenquin on: January 04, 2007 07:48:42 PM
Hey all! I picked up the newest version of Knit.1 and fell in love with the heart tanktop!  Shocked

This is my first actual garment and I've been itching to break out a substantial project on my new set of Denise's. And I have a HUGE (and when I say HUGE, I mean HUGE,) ball of arcrylic, so I think it'd be a good time to stashbust that and that way I don't feel bad if I mess up.

Anyone else daring enough to join?  Smiley

15  Re: Cell Phone Holder that Clips On? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Radioactivepenquin on: January 04, 2007 04:33:19 PM
Maybe you could make a normal-ish cell phone cozy (more reenforced) and attach a ring and a clip of the ring?

Done!  Cheesy

They're double stranded with this odd pink colored yarn my g-ma gave me a few days ago. A little big but overall good. I'll make another pair with ribbing later.  Grin

Thanks Snappitysnap for the links! I couldn't have figured out what to do without them!

17  A slouchy purse and zip make-up cases. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Radioactivepenquin on: December 26, 2006 10:43:06 PM
I had the wonderful idea of making all my X-mas presents this year... Eep. (Never again...HUGE family. Undecided) and this is the purse I made for my older sister. She wanted a bag that she could put her school books in and she only had dark purses so she wanted a light one.

OOooooo! Microsuede. Yum.


It holds it's shape really well. And fits a TON.

The inside was random scrap fabric I had cause for some reason I forgot to get some...  Roll Eyes And the outer fabric is a wonderful slightly stretch fabric that I got in the remnant pile!  Cheesy My first purse without someone dictating exactly what to do!  Grin

And here's my little sister's zip pouches. She's going through that 13 year old glittery make-up stage and most of her cases are covered. I forgot to take pictures of the larger one though.  Undecided I finished it X-mas eve and it looks identical, only bigger.

My lovely throw pillow modeling it.


My first time sewing with vinyl! (A lot of firsts this X-mas.) And I didn't use a teflon foot or a zipper foot. lol. Cheesy It was actually not that bad. The vinyl did not stick to my normal foot at all and the zipper I installed without a foot at all. I just lowered the stub down and it pretty much worked like a zipper foot. lol. The vinyl I had gotten randomly from the remnant pile (I'm a remnant junkie. Roll Eyes Hey, cheap fabric that dosen't cost you a ton if you royally goof up.) and I didn't realize there were a huge range of vinyl gauge. Oops. So thisstuff was really thick. If anything that was why I had any trouble. And turning that stuff inside out and shaping it into the bag was the worse part. Sad

18  chic super soft cabled scarf. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Radioactivepenquin on: December 26, 2006 10:29:47 PM
I made this for my sister for X-mas. She wanted a Chenille scarf that she could wear to her job at Nordstroms, but me and Chenille don't mix.  So after I took that back I saw this WONDERFUL and SOFT yarn at JoAnn's for dirt cheap. So here's what I did.

It's my own pattern on 13s and made from Angel Hair. Dosen't keep it's shape well if layed on the floor and kinda curls in when you're wearing it but looks very chic and spendy and is wonderful to wear. Really light and cuddly.

19  Re: Giftalong (not a gift exchange) in Knitalongs by Radioactivepenquin on: December 18, 2006 09:29:31 PM
I decided to make all my presents this year. (Eep.) and what I'm knitting are scarfs for 3 members of my family since I'm crushed for time. Oh why did finals have to be last week? And if you haven't heard about it, the Seattle area and pretty much half of Washington state lost power from a HUGE storm that rolled through.  Shocked So I couldn't really knit for a long time since the sun sets around 4 here and I can't stand to knit by candle light or flashlight light. But here's what I've got so far...

A scarf for one of my sister's who works at Nordstroms so I wanted to make one that she could (hopefully) wear there. It's made out of Angel Hair(wonderful yarn btw! Just kinda fickle since it dosen't keep it's shape well as you can see in the pictures) on size 13s and it is my own pattern.

And here's part of my brother's scarf made from Wool-ease and is Mom's (hah) sophisticated scarf from Stitch n' Bitch Nation.

The other one I haven't started and I really have no pattern picked out. But I dragged my dad to JoAnns with me one day since I don't drive (believe me, I'm doing a civil service by not driving.  Embarrassed) and he picked out a dark blue colored Homespun. I've never knit with it and I have no clue what type of stitch would look good in it. Any ideas? He's a lawyer so I'm trying to find a pattern or comeup with an idea that I could make a pattern from that would be "manly" enough so he could wear it to work since his firm is in Alaska.

greeneggsandham: Applique posted up! Looked better once it wasn't used and frayed though.  Undecided

emiwcch: Wow! Thanks! I like it too! I like how it looks and scruched but really it's not and it allows me to carry a TON in it. I may post up a tutorial because I seriously think my teacher made it up herself, and it's really just a bunch of rectangles. Smiley

And here's a closeup of the handle area (sorry for the blurriness.):

It's really two raw edges that we had on both sides and used one to flip the bag rightside out andter sewing the sides and I just folded it inside itself, hemming it and folded it down and topstitched in a matching brown. Smiley

Thanks MorbidKnits and Mylasbags for the nice compliments! Smiley
