1  Re: 2009 Secret Santa Wish List Swap Discussion & Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sarafpool on: December 20, 2009 12:17:25 AM
SECRET SANTA! Who are you? I received today and it was the most fantastic gift in the whole wide world that I have been lust, lust, lusting over! The mystery is that the cowl had a business card from "oneredboot" in it, who isn't part of this swap. Which means that the secret santa must have been part of STS, meaning that the cowl is the ORIGINAL one I wisted. Is that the most ridiculous thing ever? Even if I'm totally wrong, I love it to absolute bits and haven't taken it off since I opened the package. Whoever you are, you are way way way awesome and thank you.
Excuse this look, I call it " I worked at all day ".

I received from BudgeisCool a couple of days ago and haven't gotten around to posting until now! Yikes!

She did a rock and roll job of facebook stalking me and totally cranked out some awesome stuff.

First, I got these fantastic magnets:

These are awesome because I'm making a collection of awesome things on my fridge.

Second, I got a BEATLES notebook! Swoon, I'm totally in love with Paul. This book will be awesome for keeping in my purse.

Thank you again, BudgeisCool!!!

3  Circular Knitting Cowl in Knitting: Completed Projects by sarafpool on: December 06, 2009 05:05:07 PM
Oh boy! This was my first time using circular needles and it was tougher than I wanted it to be. All of the instruction guides aren't kidding when they say "don't twist your stitches". Because if you don't heed that warning you will have to start over three times.

Anyways, the pattern originates from here http://erica-knits.blogspot.com/2008/01/chunky-knit-cowl-pattern.html although I altered it to be a little shorter and added more stitches because I was using smaller needles.

I used Wool Ease Thick N' Quick

I love it!

I received! Actually it was on Saturday but the weekend got a hold of me.

I LOVE everything you sent jca1982, thank you so very much for the awesome package!
...and sorry for the iPhone photos.

First, some hand-drawn characters to go on my fridge.

and then! A beautiful necklace that I think was cleverly constructed from a button. Am I right?

and for the grand finale, a freaking fantastic tote that perfectly holds my school books. The Zissou is stenciled and the pieces around are embroidered. Jen says it was her first time stenciling but I couldn't tell.

Thank you so much!

5  Dang you H&M with your cute prints... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sarafpool on: August 29, 2009 01:30:38 AM
Both of these shirts were purchased from H&M because they were super cheap and I loved the wolf print. But oh the fit was terrible. It was some kind of lolita babydoll inspired something that was too tight on top and way big on bottom. The other tank top was really large in the bust area and it ended up leaving me exposed. So I mixed...
and cute buttons!

To make:

Hooray! I used french seams because I know that the jersey will roll and grow weird after a while. I love it and I'm excited to have my wolf fabric become something that fits. Comments always welcome!

and yeah, the bathroom is not the cleanest. Maybe the next project?

6  From the fantastic tutorial... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sarafpool on: August 27, 2009 09:28:34 PM
When I met this tutorial: http://elily00.wordpress.com/tutorials/wallet/ I loved it. I've made two versions of it and this one being the second and therefore a little altered. Made out of yummy fabric from downtown LA:

An interior shot:

I altered the zipper portion because for the first wallet I made I couldn't end up happy with the top stitching and shape so I made it a lined top zipper pouch instead:

And oh boy, that top stitching that my machine just didn't want to do:

Overall I would say that it was a general success but her tutorial is phenomenal and super impressive! comments?

7  ASL Shrinky Dink Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sarafpool on: May 17, 2009 11:42:04 PM
This project was made on a whim and induced by the need for an 'art piece' type of jewelry. Credit to the "Gallaudet" font that provided the excellent tracing material necessary. Black Prismacolor markers on white Shrinky Dinks. It spells out "Home", since I'm living in LA and from MI. Le sigh. Unpredictable weather and lite beers.

Modeled by the beautiful Vincent!  Cheesy

(Sorry for the blurriness, these are actually stills from a Flip since I don't own a digi)
