1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ninja Pants!! on: November 22, 2007 04:19:48 PM
I realize I should've taken sweet ninja pose pics for this post, but everyone here is too full of turkey to withstand my dorkiness any longer...  anyway, here's my latest Ninja Pants.  I love them.  I've always thought the wider your pantlegs the better.  Plus they were still the most comfortable pants ever even after I stuffed myself full of turkey 3 times today!

hey look, blue too!
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Me in doll form? on: October 12, 2007 08:20:12 PM
It's been forever since I've posted anything so here I go  Cool

When I started this I was intending to make a doll that looked like my son, for my son.  After what felt like 769875985 hours of tying yarn on for hair (I figured out a much much easier way when I was almost finished) I couldn't bring myself to buzz it off like my son's hair.  It's like a giant yarn mullet and I was instantly in love with it  Tongue   I tied it up in a ponytail because of it's mullet-ness, and made it a hoodie and ninja pants like the ones I made for myself that I can't stop wearing.   My son calls it the Mama Doll, and his Davey Doll is almost finished Smiley  I'd love to hear what you think, I'm entertaining the idea of making dolls for a few friends and family in their likenesses for Christmas... weird or no? 
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HELP me find mop yarn pleeeease! on: August 02, 2007 12:03:45 PM
I got a spool of mop yarn in Feb. from a big art fair where people were selling their odds and ends.  I've been trying to find more of the stuff but I'm not having any luck.  I didn't know there was so much mop-yarn-industry-lingo either  Embarrassed   I would like to buy it in bulk, preferably not online since shipping will probably cost more than the yarn itself.  But I wouldn't rule out buying online since beggars can't be choosers  Tongue  Anyone know where to get it?  Please help me out if you can! Thanks!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / first swimsuit attempt on: June 17, 2007 07:12:07 PM
OK so I've been iffy about posting this because even though I shouldn't be, I'm shy about being all hey-look-at-me-in-a-swimsuit. I finally took it out to lovely Lake Michigan to hope and pray that it stays on and together.  I didn't use a pattern, just sort of traced a swimsuit I had that sort of fit, to make it cover more of my butt and make up for my lack of a chest.  Tongue  It stayed together just fine, but it's not quite appropriate for chasing a toddler down the beach and through the ice water lol

I'm thinking of trying again using a fabric made for swimsuits, since this was just random stretchy stuff lined with jersey knit.  It always feels like it's falling off  Undecided  Any pointers from anyone that's made swimsuits?

That's my wee one- his first time to the big lake.  Grin  Just about the only second we could get him to stand still... ever.

edit: to say it ties in the back and at the neck, the ties are flipped over my shoulder, the top really is even Smiley
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / wide leg pants/tank top on: June 07, 2007 06:47:47 PM
I just tried to post this and it messed up sooo much shorter version:

I made this tie shoulder tank and wide leg pants lately, figured I'd post them since I'm been slacking on posting recently.  The whole outfit is super comfy, I love it! 

Sorry the pic is huge, but since it is, I made the pendant myself also and the bracelets from the same fabric as the shirt.

I'd like to hear what you think!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Inkpen on a Tee? on: May 16, 2007 09:40:39 PM
I made a stencil of what I wanted to put on a tshirt, but it ended up being too intricate to cut out and make it look right.  So I ended up just drawing the picture onto the shirt with a black pen.  I love how it looks and I don't even want to paint it anymore.  Is there any way to make this permanent?  One of you craftsters has got to know!  Thanks!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / a quartet of bears! on: April 28, 2007 04:52:01 PM
I made all 4 of these this week, in this order, without patterns.  I changed and tried new ways to make the face and attach arms and legs with each one.  All are Lion Boucle except the 2nd one (which is a super super soft white, yellow, and blue yarn that doesn't photograph well).  I think I finally perfected my design with the 4th one... at least it doesn't have a giraffe neck like the 1st 3 (at least you can't really tell with their new scarves on!).  
I'd love to hear what you think!!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Backpack for my wee one! (pic obese-sorry!) on: April 07, 2007 06:19:59 PM
I've been thinking awhile on how to make a tiny backpack for my son.  I finally got around to it this evening.  I got a new sewing machine for my birthday and I got to use bunches of the fancy stitches it does too!  Instead of blabbering like normal... here's pics instead!
I'd apologize for so many huge pics... but who doesn't like pictures?!

my wee one takin it for a test run:

a close-up:

decorative stitching (why?  because I can!  Tongue):

my wee one again... because he's cute and no zipper will stop him!:

All of the colors were picked out by him except for the black, it was an attempt at a pintucked shirt.  The pintucks were used for the sides of the bag, and since they are screwed up, it makes the bag expandable.  What a nifty mess-up! 

Good, bad, or otherwise, I'd love to hear what you think!! 
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 3 hat-shaped hats! finally! on: March 17, 2007 11:59:14 AM
I used this tute mostly, with a few changes...

using some rough yarn that the lady I bought it from swore was handspun (over 1000 yds for $3.50? come on...) and just an undyed cotton I had laying around, with an 'e' for Erin:

I think this one is Bernat Soft N Chunky? My son rips the paper off every skein of yarn, usually before it's bought  Embarrassed Justin had been wearing it for a few weeks before I remembered I needed a pic... it didn't look so rough before:

This is a forest green Red Heart and I think Simply Soft in baby blue:

I'd love to know what you think... this is the first time I've made hats that ended up hat-shaped!  Cheesy  
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / st. patty's pants! and a simple shirt! on: March 17, 2007 11:42:47 AM
So I made a few pairs of pants, and they happen to be green, so yay St. Patty's pants! 

The first pair is cotton(I got many many yards of it for $1!!), the second is jersey knit.  I made a purple and a brown pair like the second pair, but haven't gotten pictures.  For some reason the green pair shrunk lengthwise when I dried them, so I gave them to a short friend of mine  Tongue I might've posted them before, but I can't seem to fid them anywhere on craftster, so maybe I'm going crazy...

..to add to my craziness, I seem to not like any pants to not completely cover my feet.. I'm not sure why.  They aren't bad feet.  Palazzos just make me happy and swishy.  Grin

(giant crappy pic.. sorry... they fold over and tie at the waist, very simple)

The shirt in the first pic is really cute and so so easy!  I just stitched on 1/4" elastic around the waist and arms of a men's size S tshirt.  (I had it around the neck too, but I felt like I was wearing a collar and it just had to go).  I guess that counts as a recon, but oh well, it's too easy to make to post it twice.

The necklace is from a tute pattiwack did also that I quickly became addicted to... but I don't have it bookmarked anymore.. oops!
