11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / curse mitten on: July 11, 2008 02:19:16 AM
I made another mitten. The idea was to make a really traditional pattern and then add some foul language to make it interesting. I'm really happy with the result, and it was so much fun to knit!

thanks for looking!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cheerful anarchy mitten on: July 07, 2008 11:35:32 PM
I made a mitten. Not two mittens, cause it's really boring to repeat the same pattern all over again, but I'm planning to knit another one with another pattern for the other hand.



I made it in less than two days and I'm really proud... Smiley

thanks for looking!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / grey grey sweater on: July 03, 2008 02:05:21 AM
I made the pieces to this thing ages ago, but at that time I wanted raglan sleeves and didn't know how to put together the straight pieces to make it look good. So it got put away,  until yesterday, when I sewed the pieces together (with ordinary sleeves) and put bias tape around the edges. And I'm pretty happy with the result. There's no shaping involved, just four squares sewn together. Knitted with 1 ply wool yarn.

thanks for looking!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / dress with buttons on: June 28, 2008 11:24:40 AM
this dress began with me trying to find a cheap zipper in any second hand store in this goddam town, but of course that was impossible. Instead I found a bunch of buttons. And I think that was just as good. The manybuttoned closing on this dress is my absolute favorite part.

there are pockets, but you can't really see them in the pictures.

And some lace that in my opinion really makes the dress complete.

thanks for looking!
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / bag to match on: June 24, 2008 04:31:55 PM
I made a dress earlier today ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253483.0) , and instead of going to bed I decided I had to make a matching bag.
It turned out a little wonky, but it's okay. It was more complicated than the bags I usually do.

The handles are made from empty sewing thread bobbins (is that what it's called? please correct me if I'm wrong.) with the fabric glued on. And a couple of sticks Smiley

Aaand the lining....

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / cute dress on: June 24, 2008 01:13:45 PM
I made a dress! made up the pattern myself (super simple). The pockets are supposed to be asymmetrical Smiley
The fabric is pretty thick and sturdy - which I like - and the little dots are actually stars. It was supposed to be more fitted, but I didn't have any suitable zipper at home, so I made it a bit loose so I didn't need the zipper Smiley Really comfy!

thanks for looking!

And here's the matching bag!
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / headband with lights! on: June 12, 2008 11:56:29 AM
I got some LED thingys from a friend and got to work... It was a bit intimidating at first, but I finally got them to light up. Yay!

It's all handsewn and it was absolutely wonderful. I haven't done that in a long while, and I had totally forgotten about how meditating it can be. I was all tangled up in this project all day and completely lost track of time. Forgot to eat Smiley

Anyway, It's hard to get a good picture of the lights, but these will have to do...

a close up of the lit up flowers (yes they are flowers)

and a close up of the embroidery...

thanks for looking!
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / LED??? help?? on: June 11, 2008 11:33:30 AM
Where can I find a good beginnerfriendly tutorial on how to use LEDs? I got some batteries, some resistors (I think) some LEDs and some thread, and I got one of them to light up, but I think I need some more help.
How do I connect several LEDs? Do I need one battery per LED or can I connect two or three to the same battery? Can I put more than one battery in a circuit? or should I give up and leave the electronics to people who are down with Ohm and his dawgs?
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / simple summer cardigan on: June 02, 2008 02:37:06 AM
I made a top down raglan to wear over sunburnt shoulders... it was super easy to make. maybe a bit too much on the cute side for my taste but I think I'll wear it anyway Smiley

The yarn is recycled from an old cottonsweater I bought second hand and frogged.

front. notice the little bows on the sleeves Smiley

the back has a pattern I made up as I went along. really simple with just increases and decreases.

thanks for looking!
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / shelf from pallet on: May 25, 2008 05:32:32 AM
My flatmate made a shelf from an old pallet (I think that's he english word for it) we found outside. She has also made a bed from them...

the model is quite simple, but really functional:
