1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / wristlets aka: barbags - I followed through with something! huzzah! on: February 02, 2008 06:51:19 PM
so thanks to e.r.i.k.a.'s amazing lined zippered pouch tute, I got off of my booty and got to stashbusting...

i haven't sewn since about 5th grade, but i recently found a 70s Singer Fashion Mate machine at a garage sale for all of 5 bucks. so i finally quit procrastinating and sat for a while and fought with it and these were the result!!!

all of the fabric I used I found at various thrift stores and have been hoarding it forever- it felt good to put it to use!

i love them but i fear its like that unconditional love you have for your own child... ha ha!  i would LOVE any comments/criticism! Thanks for looking!

sorry if the pics are huge! photobucket and I are working out our differences...
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / HUZZAH! i finished something! (p.s. it's a hat) on: March 09, 2007 09:52:38 AM
i am new to knitting and I have finally finished something besides a scarf or cali... a fat little hat!

so I followed the berroco twosome pattern --> http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/twosome/twosome.html beaucse I wanted something easy and slouchy, but this is what I ended up with...

docuhebaggy action-shot

and here's a back/side view

hopefully the pictures are small... stupid photobucket...

i used paton's shetland chunky and 7's for the ribbing and 8's for the rest ... meh
i'm not a huge fan, looks like many of my thrifty-found hats that I already own, but my boyfriend loves it so I figured no harm done!
yay! I finished something!

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Cuppa Joe on: March 02, 2007 07:31:21 AM
HOORAY! I made this soy candle for my boss (I work @ a coffeehouse/ceramic studio) and she was thrilled! She actually offered me shelf space to sell them!

sorry if it's ENORMOUS!

Problem was it was my first experience with any kind of candle making and since i was already late for our gift exchange it was kinda half-assed (pardon my french)

i used crayons to color it and the sent was more a la crayon than hazelnut latte... so i sprinkled some ground hazelnut coffee I had around the house on top... it crackles when you burn it, but doesn't go up in flames or anything..

but if I was going to sell them is there a way to use coffee gounds on the top without the danger factor?  Grin

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Dying rubber-backed bath mats! eek! on: October 15, 2006 08:18:28 AM
Hello all! I'm a long time lurker of craftster and I usually find the answers to goofy questions easily, but couldn't seem to find out-

Is there any way to dye those rubber backed bath mats? I received a set of pastel yellow ones from MIL but they look AWFUL. I want to dye them a terra-cotta color... any ideas?

I was thinking about RIT, but on the package it says not for rubber backed articles. poo. what happens if I use it anyways?
