11  Pencil drawings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Buns on: January 29, 2008 08:25:17 PM
These are some pencil drawings I've done semi-recently.  They're just done with a regular mechanical pencil, and there's definitely some texture still showing because I don't have a tortillon right now, but I don't really mind it.  Smiley


Sorry for the bad picture quality, the colours aren't really so faded and there's a little more detail than actually shows up. 

This one I actually did a couple years ago and he's a little smudged, but I haven't thought of posting it until now.

12  Cigarette Cozy (don't look if you hate smoking, please) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Buns on: January 07, 2008 04:27:08 PM
I made this cigarette case cozy for my best friend for Christmas.  I made the pattern myself, but used the muzzle and ears from the iPod cozy from Happy Hooker.  It was only my second shot at any type of embroidery, but after a few failed attempts and ripped-out yarn, I am really happy with the way he looks.  She loves monkeys, so I think she'll love this.

Close-up: I love how smug he came out. 

I also made a lining to hide all the yarn bits on the inside. 

Hope you enjoyed checking out my cheeky little monkey.   Grin

13  So I spent Christmas hooking... in Crochet: Completed Projects by Buns on: January 07, 2008 04:20:51 PM
I made a mantel for my sister for Christmas.  This was actually my first completed crochet project, and I think it turned out all right.  The flowers were a total blast to make - they're enormous! 

Close-up of the flower action:

Then I made a big thick scarf for my Dad.  It ended up looking a little crazy - I think maybe I wasn't supposed to make a turn chain each row?  I know my counting was off, because the sides go in and out like crazy.  But hopefully it's one of those things I notice because I made it myself.  I threw on some fringe on the end to dazzle him away from the mistakes.   Undecided

Thanks for looking!  (And if you have any tips about the wobbly edges, please share!)

14  Noob PDA and Sweet Pea Shawl in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by Buns on: January 07, 2008 04:10:10 PM
I made this PDA hat for my sister's boyfriend.  It's the first hat I ever made and it looks a little ridiculous on me because of my massive hair, but hopefully it'll look awesome on him!

The yarn was tweed and soo nice to work with - it was a pleasure watching the little soft puffs of yellow, green, orange and red curl into the hat. 

I also made this Sweet Pea Shawl for my Mom.  I think I totally nailed her style - I've never made anything like this either, and it turned out really pretty except for being a little lopsided somehow.  The yarn looks purple in the pic, but it's a soft black and 100% cotton. 

I only learned to crochet a month ago, and I had so much fun making these for Christmas gifts.  I think I'm addicted!

15  Ribbon & spiral necklace! in Beads: Completed Projects by Buns on: August 29, 2006 03:13:57 PM
This is my first necklace ever, as well as my first project posted on Craftster!  I made it for a friend's bday and was inspired by Crafty_Witch15's Antropologie-inspired necklace. 

The pics are a bit fuzzy, but I think the beads are really beautiful - they are purple with bronze flecks, purple pomegranate-seed-looking ones, and a lovely purple and gray shell.  I attacked a black ribbon to the wire spirals, hot glued the knots, and sealed the ends with clear nail polish. 

It was great fun to make and I hope it makes a good present!
