I made some pasties for Burning Man:

Not sure if I'll wear them or give them as gifts!

32  Man-cho (Man's Poncho) in Knitting: Completed Projects by fairysari on: July 04, 2007 10:09:52 AM
I finished this last summer, it's a man's poncho from the Spring/Summer 2005 Knit1 magazine. It was a late birthday gift for my boyfriend, but I think I've worn it more than him. It's knit in a whole lot of Wool-ease Thick & Quick, which I definitely never want to knit with again after this.  The dark brown colour was all furry and tickled my nose too much. And I had to go across the border to Jo-ann's to buy the yarn. The only place I could find it in Canada was Michael's, but it was a really poor selection of colours, and about twice the price of buying it across the border.

Anyway, onto pictures! (the dark line is just the shadow of the clothesline)

Mosquito: Thanks! Cheesy I don't really like the fuzzy-in-the-mirror pictures, so I tried to photograph it a different way. But, mynailsarepink, since you asked, and I don't have another way to get a pic of it, I will post one. I apologize for the poor quality of the photo:

UpKnitCreek, great minds! Do you remember where you got your fabric? I would love to see a picture of your apron too!

Hahaha - I just had to add - for once, the mess behind me in the picture is my BF's crafting mess, not mine! Smiley

34  Frilly Apron! Simplicity 4282 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fairysari on: June 27, 2007 12:24:39 PM
This is view A of Simplicity 4282:

All the bias tape was a little fussy, and the straps need a little adjusting, but it was pretty straightforward otherwise.

Here is a closeup of the pocket, and so you can see the fabric:

I love wearing it! It feels really girly Cheesy. It's comfy and useful and makes me feel like June Cleaver or something!

I sometimes use some Yesterdays News (I figure thats probably similar to the pellets you use) and they are a little easier to clean up than shavings. I would suggest NOT putting a layer of newspaper or anything under the shavings/pellets, as it sometimes sticks to the coroplast when it gets wet and thats what makes it hard to clean.

Oh, and I use vinegar, since guinea pig pee is alkaline, it works better than anything at getting the pee off the coro - you could use any cleaner though.

If you don't have a truck, get 4mm thickness coro, and it will roll up, as long as you secure it with packing tape. The people at one art supply store where I bought some told me it wouldn't roll, but they were wrong!

And to make this post slightly more crafty, here's some guinea pig beds I don't think I have posted before, posing with Charlie, the Guinea Pig Cages world traveling stuffie pig:

I just thought I'd add a picture of the new cage I built for my guinea pigs not too long ago:

I'm in the process of decorating it, the theme is Peter Pan.

37  Baby Beret (from Debbie Bliss Simply Baby) in Knitting: Completed Projects by fairysari on: June 19, 2007 08:49:18 PM
I recently finished the baby beret from Debbie Bliss' Simply Baby. I used a yarn I dyed myself with Wilton cake dyes and I'm really happy with how it turned out! Its a gift, and I can't wait to give it.

Best part is that it was knit on two-needles (I don't do dpns), and it used less than 50 g of yarn! The seam is almost invisible, too, since I actually spent the time and effort to do the finishing properly.

Here's the yarn I dyed before I knit it up:


Anyway, the pattern was pretty simple, and I followed it almost exactly, just used a different yarn, and used a little more of the contrast colour. It is pretty fast to knit up, so would make a good last-minute baby gift.

Super extra huge image here: http://bp1.blogger.com/_q3-d2_9D6R8/RniU833gu5I/AAAAAAAAAAM/SYA4nL4CjdY/s1600-h/P6114764.JPG or on my blog, if you really want to see the high-res pictures.

And hopefully I will see the baby soon, and be able to give the gift, and even take some action shots on a real baby (not just Mr. Bronze Head).

I haven't been before either. My BF went last year, and he and I are going with a bunch of friends this year. I helped him make outfits last year, so this year I am focusing on making stuff for myself.

Here are some pictures of the stuff we did for last year, that will probably go back again:

(I made the pants, he made the top, and bought the hat) I found another yard of the spaceship/robots fabric the pants are made out of, about three months after. I think I'd like to make myself a matching skirt.

(I made the shorts, he made the poncho thing)

(Bought plain: He did the felt applique on the bottom and back, I did the rest.) He is working on the back side of the coat this year, and has taken out some of the lining. Plans are to quilt around the felt parts.

The costumes I made for last Halloween will probably come too - especially since they are green, and the theme is The Green Man. I posted about them here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=130151.msg1264046#msg1264046

I just bought a bunch of fake hair in pink and blue, so I'm going to try to make some sort of crazy hairpiece. I also have plans to make a night-time jacket in fleece. Haha, I should stop posting, and get crafting...

39  Burning Man craft-along in Craftalongs by fairysari on: June 16, 2007 06:06:45 PM
Almost all of my crafting lately has been for Burning Man. Sewing outfits, making gifts... I thought there might be others working on Burning Man stuff, and I'd love to see what everyone else is crafting.

So far, I've blinged up some sunglasses:

Made some wings:

...that glow in the dark (or blacklight):

And I've made the top part of a shirt, to which I plan to add lots of ruffles to the bottom part so it becomes a long full shirt The front view of it:

And the back:

I want to make some sort of corset top, and bought 15 yards of crinoline to make extra-fluffy petticoat/skirts. I've been collecting notions and trims to use, and I've been LOVING making costumes. Here is some of the stuff I've collected that I hope to use for Burning Man stuff. I appreciate any suggestions on what to with some of the stuff:

And I almost forgot, I knit a few leaves for A Tree Undone art project, a tree full of knitted and crocheted leaves that will be at Burning Man for people to unravel.

So what are you crafting for Burning Man?
