1  The hanging doily lamp in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by becarita on: August 19, 2011 12:32:03 PM
I needed a hanging lamp and I have a small collection of doilies that I've been saving for a rainy day.  Fortunately I live in Seattle so rainy days are all around me Smiley

I posted the tutorial on my blog:  http://sundaydrivedesigns.com/blog/?p=242.  It's kinda picture heavy so I thought i would give the Craftster servers a break Smiley

Hope you like it!

2  Christmas tree topper and ornaments in Winter Holidays by becarita on: December 02, 2007 08:34:36 PM
I have a small basement apartment and it's hard to get a Christmas tree that doesn't look like the Griswald's family tree.  We found one last year and we bought a few little ornaments from Target, but I could never find a tree topper that didn't look like it was eating the tree.  Add to that, money is a little short this year, so I got a little creative.  I got a stack of holiday themed scrapbooking paper and made a bunch of origami cranes and one large one for as the tree topper!


The painted snowman ornament is one of my Dad's creations.  We get a handmade ornament from him every year.  Even Dad is crafty Smiley

I just finished one!  It was super easy!  Thank you so much for the directions.  They were a cinch to follow.  I'm going to make a few more for present.  I would advise against the using Sensations Angel, as the little hairs seemed to have found their way into my coffee.  I think if I plan on using yarn again, I'll loose a couple of stitches on each side.
Here's an action shot:

Thanks again for the pattern!  It totally rocks!

Thanks everyone for the kind words!  The wedding is tomorrow and after wrestling with the second pillowcase (I left out a letter on a word, then I realized I left an entire word out) they are done!  Here's the final product.  I added a couple of kissing love birds (adapted from the Doodle Stitching book).

5  Embroidery - Pillowcase for my friend's wedding in Needlework: Completed Projects by becarita on: October 25, 2007 09:33:17 PM
It's not officially done yet, but it's close enough (ok, one pillowcase is done, the second one is almost done) - but you get the idea.

I found a quote from Robert Browning.  It says, "So, fall asleep love, loved by me, for I know love, I am loved by thee."

The paper is what I used for a template.  I ended up having to free hand everything because I didn't give myself enough space for the thread width.  I think it might need a few more embellishments, but I'm not sure.  Any input would be great!

Mom wants me to sell the pattern.  And I'm on the fence about that.

6  Embroidery - Tea Towels in Needlework: Completed Projects by becarita on: October 06, 2007 10:21:40 PM
I snatched up a copy of Doodle Stitching and found a cute little boxer dog pattern.  Since my friend's bridal shower was coming up, and her and her husband own a boxer, I thought it would be cute to embroider the boxer on some tea towels.  They were the hit of the shower!

Of course, I was working on this right up until I had to leave for the shower.  Nothing like putting it off until the last minute Smiley

I've been waiting to make this until I found some fabric that I liked and was on sale... and what do you know, Joanns was having a sale!  Total cost - $3!

(Sorry for the fuzzy shot.  It was the best I could do without the flash)
Thanks for such an awesome tutorial!  I know I'll be making more of these.

9  Fantine - my first not so boring knitting project in Knitting: Completed Projects by becarita on: September 15, 2007 07:16:38 PM
After working on the Anthropologie Inspired Capelet by julsey723 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62184.0 (thanks for such a great tutorial julsey723! I love that pattern!)
I got up the courage to work on something a bit harder - the French Girl Knits pattern - Fantine. 

I learned a few things on this one:
Read the entire pattern first.
Don't start something you really aren't sure about while watching your favorite tv shows. 

there's a few mistakes in it, but hey, that's what give it that "handknit" feel to it Smiley

All the details of the progress are on my blog:  http://beccalou.wordpress.com

Thanks for looking!

I finally got past the fear and knit it!  I used Brown Sheep's Cotton Fleece.  I can't remember the color at the moment.  I finished it last weekend and this weekend wore it and got many Ooos and Ahhhs.

I haven't figured out how to take a photo of me wearing it without cutting off my head or an odd angle, so here it is, in all it's glory... on the floor - posing for the camera Smiley

If I didn't get the image up there right, it's on my blog:
