1  Re: Scrapbook Cookbook Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Kpuppy on: November 03, 2008 03:22:01 PM
Well, I received my package from Cheebz. I knew from looking at her past posts that she would come up with something amazingly creative, and she did not disappoint me.

Now, remember, my camera was stolen, so these are cell phone pictures. I'm sure Cheebz can clarify with better pictures if need be.

First, my new apron. I told Cheebz that my shirt always gets soaked when I do dishes. What I didn't mention was that I'm probably the messiest person on the planet, so this is perfect for me. Smiley

This and...

this were tucked into the pockets of the apron Smiley

This is the purchased cookbook. I've never heard of it, but it is incredibly cool. It's one of those books that you want to read cover to cover before you make a single thing...the coolest part is this:

It says "Do not pull", so naturally I immediately pulled it and this is what happens:

Finally, the creme de la creme as they say, the crafted book. She really went all out!

It's called "Wild Cats: The eating habits of libidinous women" and it has pictures of pin-up girls all through it. It is SO my style!

I've been wanting a veggie burger recipe!

My favorite page of the book.

A little pocket at the back of the book with extra recipes tucked in the back.

Thanks a lot, Cheebz. It's really a great, great package!

I received my stitch markers today From Poprock! They are lovely!

I want to apologize in advance for my horrible photos. My camera doesn't have a macro setting and takes HORRIBLE close ups of small items. Maybe Poprock can upload some better photos if she has any.

First, the containment device...a lovely knit pouch! In my favorite colors, green and purple:

And it's lined...

And here are the markers. Each set has one that is different for the beginning of the round. I can't wait to make an intricate cabled hat or something.

Don't mind the sullen cat in the background, she was dying to bat at the markers.

3  Giant Robot! in Completed Projects by Kpuppy on: September 03, 2007 09:32:46 AM
This isn't my craft, but a male friend of mine who doesn't know the wonderful-ness of Craftster gave me permission to post it here.

This friend of mine and his roommate had a Back-to-school/Labor Day gathering last night and for this party they made a giant robot. No, giant robots aren't our school's mascot -- they're just appropriate for every gathering.

Giant Robot with flash.

Giant Robot without flash (to show glowing eyes)

He took apart a standard lamp and used the wiring from it to make the face/eyes glow. The body is made of cardboard boxes with aluminum foil.

Megami has received! I only took pictures of the messenger bag I made her because I'm so in love with it...hopefully she'll be able to post pictures of the shirt and bracelet.

Here is the bag. I used the 'Messenger Bag with Gusset' tutorial on the purse/handbag board. I added a button to the flap (My first buttonhole! It wasn't perfect, but at least I get the gist of it now), zig-zag stitched around the flap with some cool variegated green thread and painted a Craftster skull with crossed knitting needles on the front.

The material I used for the lining....it is green flowers on off-white, but I think it looks a bit like camo. The whole bag is lined, even the strap.

Here is a better picture of the painted skull.

It was so funny, because we both made each other brown messenger bags and t-shirts...the small item was the only thing that was different!

5  Re: Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap Round 3 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Kpuppy on: July 13, 2007 11:44:57 AM
I received! I received!

Sammi really knocked herself out.

First, we have the ball-band dishcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I am currently working on one of these to be a swiffer cover for my mom, and I was thinking about how much I like the pattern and that I should make one for myself. Now I don't have to! And the colors are great: pink/orange/yellow variegated for the foreground and a nice bright purple for the background. Very cool.

Next, a very pretty hunter green cloth with a pretty stitch pattern. I love green, so this is perfect.

AND I'm so lucky, because she sent me this awesome bookmark crocheted with teeny tiny hooks I can imagine. I need to learn how to do this, because I have teeny tiny hooks. This is going in the new Harry Potter book when it comes out (that is, if I ever actually close it while I'm reading!)

THAT'S NOT ALL!! I ALSO got two tiny little stitch markers! Perfect, because I'm not about the big ones and I love the kind that completely encircle the needle (does that make sense?).

(I know, not a great picture, my camera sucks at small stuff...one says 'create' and the other has green/blue beads)

Also, I got a handmade card!

I'm sooo spoiled, and I just hope that Sammimag loves her cloths as much as I love mine!

Ok, here's my loot from Megami!  Grin

I'm SO IN LOVE with this bag that she made. I told her that I just got a bike and I wanted a messenger bag to carry whilst riding:

Isn't it beautiful! I really love brown and blue together, and I'm not sure if I told her that or if she read my mind -- either way, I really, really like it. Isn't that ribbon detail adorable?

It also has pockets:

and more pockets with a pretty lining:

Also, BUTTONS to put on the bag to celebrate my Craftster obsession:


(and yes, Megami, that totally looks like a ball of yarn!)

There was one more that said, "I run with scissors!" and it is really cute, but it fell apart and I'm in the process of fixing it.

And finally, a t-shirt that reads: Friend of Craftster with a little turtle like the one in my FOC icon up there:

THANKS MEGAMI!!! You rock Wink

7  Tractor Tire Sandbox! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kpuppy on: June 30, 2007 03:43:36 PM
This is not my craft, it is my mom's, but she gave me permission to post it here because I think it is so cool.
This tractor tire has been in the yard for as long as I remember (my grandmother lived in this house until she died, and then my parents moved in). Well, my mom has two grandchildren now, so she decided to turn it into a sand box.

I think that it is very cool that she painted it bright yellow. The kids love it. The bottom of the tire has concrete to keep the sand in.

The box with the cover. My mother searched and searched for fabric that would work as a cover, and then she bought a shower curtain from the dollar store (notice that it is fading from sun exposure). She measured the tire with a string and then cut the curtain into a circle.

Finally, she attached weights that you would buy to weigh down a picnic tablecloth to keep the cover on.

I'm just so in love with this! I love my crafty genes!

8  "The Slink" from DomiKNITrix by Jennifer Stafford in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kpuppy on: June 16, 2007 01:58:22 PM
I've FINALLY finished the Slink! I started this top about two months ago (right when it started getting warm) and I've finally finished. I had some setbacks along the way, which I will explain fully after the pictures!

Here it is in all its glory! The purl ridge detail around the waist goes all the way around the back of the sweater.

Here it is on me, just to show that it actually does fit.

Ok, so here are the details:

Pattern: The Slink, from DomiKnitrix
Pattern Author: Jennifer Stafford
Yarn: Classic Elite Rockford Cotton. This is an Egyptian Cotton yarn that has been discontinued. My mom actually bought this for me at a yard sale in Massachusetts a couple of years ago. It ironically was the perfect yardage for this project (I have about 6 yards left over).
Modifications: I didn't follow the pattern for the rolled V neck. After I was done knitting the top, I didn't want to knit too much around the neck because it looked good as is.

close up of the v-neck

This pattern is cast on with a provisional cast on in the left back area of the top. It is then knit sideways all the way around the body and then the provisional cast on is taken out and it is "seamed" under the left armpit area with kitchener stitch. Stitches are picked up around the arm for a short row cap sleeve.

9  Upcycled Bag from Goodwill Sweaters. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kpuppy on: June 16, 2007 01:41:05 PM
I made this bag today! It was very easy to make. I used two sweaters that I found at Goodwill. The orange sweater had a stain on it and the green tweed sweater (I swear it is green, though it looks grey in the pictures) looked as if it had been accidentally felted and shrunk. Both are 100% lambswool.

I used the tutorial from this episode of Threadbanger:
http://www.threadbanger.com/episode/threadheads_10 (if you aren't watching Threadbanger, you really should be).

I didn't make it reversible like in the tutorial, and since the two sweaters were so thick, it was very hard to sew the strap together in a way that would look good, so I took a rectangle of the orange fabric and knotted it around the strap and stitched the knot so it wouldn't come undone. Finally, I cut a flower shape out of the two fabrics and sewed a cool button in the middle to hold it to the bag. I left the flower kind of floppy, although I stitched the top petal to the bag so it wouldn't be too floppy.

Here is another view:

10  Simplicity 'Sew Easy' 6620 --- "Grandma's Drapes" Kimono Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kpuppy on: May 15, 2007 05:12:21 PM
Finished this top today!

The fabric was $1/yd at WalMart. I know that the v-neck looks a little weird, but that is just because I had to sew it down (I'm a little busty and afraid of my boobs popping out).

I really love this top. I just wore it out to dinner with my boyfriend's family and I got a bunch of compliments!
