1  Handsewn pencil case, just in time for Christmas in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tastethesky7 on: December 21, 2008 09:25:57 AM
On my sister's wish list this Christmas was a pencil case, so she wouldn't have to hold all her writing utensils in a rubber band. Being the crafty person that I am, I stepped up to the plate so she wouldn't get a boring one from Staples or something. I handsewed this during the course of a week, not working on it everyday, other days working on it during class.  Roll Eyes

The whole thing

That loop took me forty-five minutes to get turned inside out.  Tongue Anyways, sorry the pictures are crummy, the light was bad. Thanks!

2  Daisies! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tastethesky7 on: April 03, 2008 02:59:51 PM
The summer before ninth grade (summer '06), my friend and I decided we wanted to learn how to sew.  Her mom sews, so we all took a trip to JoAnn's for patterns, fabric, etc.  I don't remember much (it was a while ago), but I do remember the fabric was on sale and so was the pattern.  I guess for a first project it was pretty difficult, but overall, it was not a difficult project (if that makes any sense).

Now, voila!

Me in the dress

When I made this dress, I made it to fit me (I did gymnastics at the time).  I had to quit at the end of that summer because I got arthritis in my back.  I didn't do a sport freshman year, and by the end of it, the dress was hard to get into.  At the beginning of sophomore year, I started crew (rowing), and now I fit into it again, with room to spare! Smiley That's why the bust looks loose--because it is.

I went to my local pottery painting place, called All Fired Up, and decided I wanted to paint a dog, so I did.  Here are the results-->

Here he is from the front.

And the back...

Notice the heart below his ear

And the paw print on his ear!

I love him so much...he was great to do.  Thanks!

4  Abstract Human Sculpture in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tastethesky7 on: December 25, 2007 06:06:46 PM
Alright, alright, I had to do this for art class, but I really enjoyed it and liked the outcome.  The point was to do it a la Henry Moore, with abstract human forms and such.  It is not glazed, just fired.

5  Knit and Lined Pencil Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tastethesky7 on: December 25, 2007 05:56:27 PM
Last year, I got pretty sick of never being able to find a pen in the depths of my purse, so I determined that I needed a pencil case.  I used my own design, making sure it was long enough for pens and new pencils.  I knit it up out of some beautiful cotton yarn and hand-sewed in the zipper and lining.  It's held up pretty well so far.  Thanks for looking!

Looking back, the only thing I might change would be to use a darker fabric on the inside, as now it is getting dirty.  Tongue

6  Knubbly Green Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by tastethesky7 on: December 25, 2007 03:23:25 PM
About a year ago-ish, my mother embarked on knitting scarves for me and my sisters, therefore I did not knit this, but thought that I would post it for her.

I really loved that she did this project for me, because I got to choose every aspect of the scarf, from yarn to cable to length.  I highly recommend it for a gift that the reciever-to-be is sure to like.  The picture of my sister modeling it is the closest color to the actual yarn.

Thanks for looking!
