1  Stephan Jenkins Rasterbation in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by brit0602 on: March 14, 2008 08:54:19 PM
This is what I did tonight....

I found a picture on the internet and went to this website (if anyone knows what it is Huh) and the website did the work for me.  Then I just taped them up to the wall and make the edges kinda all over the place so that my mistakes while cutting etc. wouldn't show as bad and it would look like it was on purpose.  (The hubby's idea)  I then painted strips on the wall around it to make like a really big frame.  Well, hope you enjoy, I love the feedback!

2  Third Eye Blind in Needlework: Completed Projects by brit0602 on: March 12, 2008 09:20:22 PM
I am so excited to finally post in this section.  I've been so inspired by all the embroidery that I wanted to try it out and I am now totally hooked.  So the hubby and I are big third eye blind fans...yes, even 10 years later.  And we have just got our first house that we are hoping to stay in for a while and we are wanting to turn our basement into a game room, with the main theme to be bands.  Well, I decided to print off a picture of a sign they have onto the computer fabric you feed into the printer.  And some satin stitch later you get this........

I know...the wrinkles are killing me.  I ironed the hell out of that thing and can't get them out.  So a question for all you embroidery masters...I left the backing on the fabric paper b/c the fabric itself is so thin you can't get hardly anything through there without making huge holes and making really bad stitches.  I really like the idea of printing onto fabric to embroider, so is there anything out there for doing that?  But I'd love to hear any feedback and suggestions!

3  My new Street Lamp! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by brit0602 on: March 09, 2008 04:48:26 PM
I was at work the other day and we had ran out of paper so I changed it out and was left with a long heavy cardboard tube.  All of a  sudden a light went off and I decided that I needed a new floor lamp and this was going to be the perfect base.  So I took 2 of them and duck taped them together and decoupaged over it with some random green paper I had laying around.  I then built a base out of 2x4's and drawer pulls for the feet.

Then I decoupaged the bottom and painted the feet.  I also added hemp along the edges to try and finish it off a little more.  I then found one of those paper balls I bought years ago at Ikea.  And volia and street lamp......

Feedback always welcome!

4  Boatneck Purplebell in Knitting: Completed Projects by brit0602 on: February 12, 2008 05:36:32 PM
I just finished my boatneck bluebell from Fitted knits.  I used size 3 needles and doubled Rowan felted tweed.  It took about a month for the whole thing.  But there at the end I was getting pretty board and would jump from one thing to another.  I blocked it but not too pleased with the way it ended up after blocking so I'm going to try again.  I really like it though.  It's not the most flattering, but I'm hoping after the re-blocking it will be better.  I made it a 3/4 length sleeve rather than the long sleeves now that it's getting warmer so that I can wear it for more time out of the year.  Well, on to the pictures......

The color is closer on these next ones...

Love to hear your comments!

5  Old window into Picture Collage! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by brit0602 on: February 12, 2008 04:50:20 PM
I was out walking around where I work during lunch and saw this place that sold old windows (among other things) and had to get some no matter what the DH would say.  I knew it would be perfect in our house once I figured out what it should be.  Well a little bit of sanding, some stenciling, and some photo corners later this is what I got...

Here is a close up.....

I know it still looks like all the paint is going to be on my floor, but I actually sanded off all the loose paint and old wood and everything that's there is hopefully there to stay.  Well hope you enjoyed!  Comments always welcome!

6  Wine cork/chalk board!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by brit0602 on: March 22, 2007 06:31:23 PM
Hey all!  This was originally a mirror but with the help of my oh so cleaver dad, it is now a corkboard and chalkboard.  I got it from hobby lobby for about $4, and the mirror in the background was broke.  The second I saw it I knew what it's true potential could be!  So we took the back of it off and removed the mirror (which of course I saved for future fun) and added a piece of plywood to the back of it.  From there I spent a movie and a TV show cutting all these wine corks in half (with a utility knife might I add) and glued them on with some Elmer's Ultimate Glue, then I sprayed the other squares with chalkboard paint....and ta-da now I bring you this ultra fun wino message center!  Now I must think of some great tacks for it.  What do you guys thing?

7  Finished Coronet hat with quick question... in Knitting: Completed Projects by brit0602 on: January 07, 2007 07:43:00 PM
Here's the Coronet Hat from Knitty that I just finished.  It's for a friend of mine who just left for Iraq.  Before I send it to him I was wondering if you guys could help me.  I knit this on dpn and where the needles met my knitting is bigger than anywhere else.  It's not too bad at the top, but really bad at the bottom.  Are there any suggestions on how to fix that or do I just need to deal with it and realize he's got more important things to worry about?  You can kind of see what I'm talking about on the (your) right side.  Any comments/suggestions are very welcome!

By the way it was knit with Lion brand wool and was so much fun and very easy to do.  This is definitely the first of many!

8  Knitty's Hallowig! in Knitting: Completed Projects by brit0602 on: October 27, 2006 07:09:14 AM
I recently finished Knitty's Hallowig for my daughter's halloween costume.  She's DeeDee Doodle from the Disney channel.  I really like the way it turned out, but I had to make some minor adjustments in order for it to fit her.  The bangs are a little short, but this was a really fun project, plus it was quick!  Anyone else tried it out?

9  DeeDee Doodle! in Halloween Costumes by brit0602 on: October 27, 2006 06:54:31 AM
My daughter loves the Doodlebops so this year she was DeeDee!  I used the hallowig from Knitty with slight modifications in order to fit her and I just kind of winged the dress.  What do you think?
