11  Re: Set of Embroidered Tea Towels Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by OlalalaurenO on: May 14, 2009 01:44:05 PM
All the towels are amazing!! I love the coloring idea!

I'm going to post pics of what I made for Sonja because she's having camera issues...but the thing is I temporarily misplaced them....If I used a larger portion of my brain I'd be super scary...

Ok finally found them. I am so proud of these! I almost hated to see them go but I knew Sonja would give them a great home.

She liked kitschy kitchen stuff and retro designs, so I edited a couple patterns I found and added some retro to them.

and a bonus Hello Kitty amigurumi

Glad you enjoyed everything Sonja!! I know I enjoyed my towels from you!

Sorry I'm posting later than I said...a little computer mishap. Just some friendly advice--No liquids near your laptop! Luckily mine survived, thank goodness. Anywho on with the swap goodness!

My Owl Towels!

Aren't they adorable?! Sonja did such a wonderful job!! Thank you so much Sonja!!

16  Raku Ware: Ferguson Blue & White Crackle Pottery in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by OlalalaurenO on: November 19, 2008 09:33:33 AM
Even though I nearly choked to death a few times on the smoke I love love love Raku! I'm taking ceramics II and until now I haven't really had anything I've thrown that is decent to show anyone at all (yeah the wheel is NOT as easy as it looks!) Monday night we did some Raku and I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out!

The one on the left is Ferguson Blue (yeah and it didn't come out blue at all!) and on the left is White Crackle (I've done white crackle before but my mom claimed it so these are all mine)

This one came out mostly copper colored but over night it changed to green...I was shocked how fast the color changed

Thanks for looking!!

Ok I'm finally getting to post my little friend from ckchan! I've been laid up with a bad back and have a chance to post.


Hopsy - The Hip Hop Hopster!! Isn't he cute?!

Some of his essentials...

Some veggies and, of course, his iPod!

And for me...

ckchan is a very good detective if she could find out that I absolutely LOVE puzzles...especially Sudoku!! I got the Sudoku book, small metal puzzles (which I love!!) and Hopsy's bio.

 Grin Thank you SO much ckchan!!  Grin

Holy cow ya'll fairybug totally spoiled me!! I'm in awe of everything she's sent me...I only hope I can live up to hers!!

The loot!
A huge purse

She made this and even the needlepoint on it! I honestly thought it was purchased! The fabric is totally retro...my favorite style!! I love the long strap...its the perfect look!!

Close up of needlepoint

This is honestly the coolest purse I own.


She found this owl framed at a thrift store (how come I can never find stuff like this?!) and made it into a pillow complete with ball fringe from some curtains. Yay for reconstructions!!!


Polymer Clay Necklace

Owl glass bead bracelet

aren't they fabulous?! I put them on as soon as they arrived. Yeah my friends are jealous.  Grin

Fairybug you totally rock! this is one of the best swap packages I've ever gotten!! Like I said I hope I can live up to you expectations now!!

20  Amy Butler Crochet Supply Tote *lotsa pretty pics!* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by OlalalaurenO on: August 15, 2008 09:43:42 PM
I needed a bag to carry all my crochet junk so it was all in one place. I was reluctant to use my gorgeous Amy Butler fabric ...but I did and as I suspected I screwed up a lot....this bag was torture from the word go! But with all its issues I think it turned out great.

I got the idea from a few purses I've seen and added my own touches

the front

I used 8 different fabrics with colors in the same range

Side all tied up

Side untied


I added some rivets to keep the cardboard on the bottom in place


there are pockets on both sides of the inside: one side is for pens or hooks and the other side has wider pockets...i put my needle box in one

Inside Filled

with all my lovely junk in it. I made it big so I can put my binder of patterns, books and skeins of yarn as well as WIPs etc.

As much as I hated making this thing I love it so much! Thanks for looking!
