21  Felt boutonniere in Weddings and Bridal Showers by julietalpha on: January 06, 2009 06:46:30 PM
I'm knitting my bouquet (which can be seen here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280934.0) and needed something similar for the guys.

After some searching I came up with this pattern http://cards-by-paula.blog.co.uk/2008/01/25/how_to_make_a_felt_white_calla_lily~3630857 and had a go.

These are what I came up with:

I haven't shown these to any of the guys who actually have to wear them yet!

What do you guys think?

22  Iris fold Christmas cards in Winter Holidays by julietalpha on: December 06, 2008 11:45:35 PM
Here are the two designs of my Christmas cards this year.

I was inspired by a post here on Craftster to look up the Circle of Crafters site and these are my first ever iris folding efforts.

What do you think?

23  Re: I need new ideas!--please post your homemade Christmas ornaments in Winter Holidays by julietalpha on: December 05, 2008 07:38:39 PM
Wow spectrumsparkie!  That's really neat!  Especially when you see how it's done.  I also like the recycling aspect of it.

Here is my effort this year.  They're for an ornament Kris Kringle.

They're made from 6cm styrofoam balls, tissue paper, PVA glue, ribbon and two pins.  I'm pretty happy with them!

24  Bouquet with a difference in Weddings and Bridal Showers by julietalpha on: December 02, 2008 01:39:57 AM
Okay, so it's not quite a bouquet yet.  I'm knitting flowers for my wedding from the Knitty pattern for calla lilies (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTlilies.html).  I'm knitting it with 6mm needles and wool and hand felting.

Here is one freshly knitted:


Here is one freshly felted:


Sorry for the links - photobucket is doing something strange...

And here they are side by side:

25  Re: Which invitation design do you like? in Weddings and Bridal Showers by julietalpha on: December 02, 2008 01:20:29 AM
Thanks again everyone!  I had another design pop into my head.  When people were suggesting the vertical strip behind the cream paper I wondered whether it might need a bit more of the decorated stuff.

Any thoughts?

26  Which invitation design do you like? in Weddings and Bridal Showers by julietalpha on: November 20, 2008 10:37:37 PM
I'm getting married in April and I finally chose some paper last week.  The next step is to decide on the actual design of the invitation and who better to ask but my fellow Craftsters!  At this stage I have three options:

For the one with the strip down the side, I'd probably align the text (when I make it up...) left or right.  With the other two it'd be centred.

My favourite two are the one with the side strip and the one with the corners.  If anyone has an opinion on these or another suggestion I'd love to hear it!

27  Quant complete! in Knitting: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: January 05, 2008 10:26:31 PM
My first entrelac!

I would have liked a yarn which changed colour quicker for this pattern (the original on Knitty was so beautiful!) but it was a happy coincidence the way it turned out symmetrical!

28  Knitted bangle in Knitting: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: January 02, 2008 09:47:59 PM
My mother likes chunky bangles but has trouble getting them over her hands these days.  This is kind of good for me because she gave me all her old ones!  However, I have to extend great thanks to vysews for posting her knitted bangles.  Instead of using an existing bangle, I used the inside of a roll of masking tape with a slit cut in it.  It will expand to go over her hand but the slit doesn't show because of the knitted cover.

You can see how the colour varies in the yarn.

I actually meant to post this before Christmas but the net was playing up.  Mum was quite intrigued by it and Im really hoping she gets a lot of wear out of it!

29  Wisp in Knitting: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: December 20, 2007 10:01:55 PM
Here's my take on Wisp, from Knitty:

I'm really happy with the colour - it's called Denim and I think it will live up to its namesake's quality of going with everything!  I didn't stop at 17 repeats, just kept going until I ran out of yarn.  Similarly I haven't been too bothered about getting the buttons because it was the idea of lacing it into a hood that intrigued me.

And while I'm at it, here's a preview of my Quant, also from Knitty:

It's my first entrelac project.  The colour of the yarn isn't fabulous but I wouldn't wait to get something just right!

30  Flannos PJs part 2 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by julietalpha on: December 04, 2007 04:14:55 PM
A while ago I posted the new pyjama pants that I made and now I have completed the top:

And here is a very dodgy photo of the complete set:

I'll probably add a button at some stage but it'll be a while before it's cold enough to wear them.  I'm also a little disappointed that I didn't take more care laying out my pattern pieces - I seem to have alot of upside-down animals!
