1  Throw Pillows in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indigo flower girl on: July 21, 2011 09:01:48 AM
I used a beach towel to cover these throw pillows!  It worked so well. Smiley  What do you think?

2  GPS Case (feat. Curious George!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by indigo flower girl on: July 21, 2011 08:30:13 AM
I had been storing my GPS in a sock... yes a sock... for almost a year before I finally got around to making this case for it.  Works perfectly!  Now my parents want me to make them one.  For the record, using a sock worked fine too, but I guess this is cuter.  Tongue 

What do you think?

3  pom headband in Crochet: Completed Projects by indigo flower girl on: November 24, 2010 12:54:28 PM
My first forays into crochet were about a year ago... but then I stopped.  A couple of days ago I found the time to get back into it and I made this cozy headband with a big pom pom.  Yay, warm and happy me.  Smiley

The yarn I used is nothing special... some kind of craft yarn I found in my parents' basement a long time ago.

Comments welcome!

4  Yoga Pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indigo flower girl on: January 01, 2010 01:01:05 PM
What a good start to the new year!  I used one school t-shirt, plus a bit of another school t-shirt, to make these very comfy yoga pants!  I'd never made pants this way before and the fit turned out to be much better than I anticipated.  It probably helped that I tried them on several times in the process of making them.  All in all, new pants to wear while I watch my team in the Sugar Bowl tonight! Comments (good and bad) welcome.  Smiley

5  Imperfect but Loved! [hat] in Crochet: Completed Projects by indigo flower girl on: November 18, 2009 12:56:21 PM
I just made my first crocheted anything, ever, and it is a hat!  I am so excited with the results!

I just made it up as I went along and I know it's probably not that thrilling to you friends out there who actually know what they're doing, but I am so thrilled to have made something at all.  This opens up a whole new world for me...  Grin  Please let me know what you think, good or bad, or offer advice because like I said I'm a COMPLETE beginner.

Top of Hat

Happy Hat-maker

P.S. Do you think it's okay to wear in public?  I think I'm going to...

6  The ink is black, the page is white. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by indigo flower girl on: May 11, 2008 04:52:27 PM
Here are a couple of pieces I made recently.

Black Dress: Supersoft, thick black knit fabric.  My own design.  I just realized all my great mirror shots cut out the skirt, so... it hits about mid-knee, a little higher with a belt.

I wanted a "little black dress" that was comfy and modest, but definitely still pretty.  I got what I wanted and it fits perrrfectly.  Love it, but what do you think?  Wink 

I originally designed it to wear just plain, like so...

I love how it drapes and how the ruffles turned out.

I also discovered that I can wear it other ways with this belt I have.  This way makes me think of a formal luncheon or something.  I never go to formal luncheons, and will probably never wear it like this.

But I DO like it this way, with the belt low-slung, more fun, kinda.  What do you think?  Which way do you like it? (if you do like it, haha)

White Top: Semi-sheer cotton.  The sleeves tie into little bows, but I couldn't tie them myself.  Please use your imagination.  Smiley  Oh, it started as a BBW pattern, but I ended up doing quite a bit of modification.  I'll do a bit more before I make it again, which I plan to.  I like the style for spring and summer.

Opinions and questions are great!  Thanks for looking!

7  All Grown Up! (Plaid Skirt --> Plaid Top) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indigo flower girl on: December 31, 2007 03:15:20 PM
I'm so excited about this!  I started with a poly-rayon skirt I still had from middle school, 6 or 7 years ago.



AFTER (BACK... I have it gaped open so you can see it shuts with a zipper):

And here it is, on me.  I was super excited!  Smiley

Thanks for looking!  Please comment  Smiley  aaaand, Happy NYE!

8  Re: Fashion Doodling Anyone? in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by indigo flower girl on: December 29, 2007 05:25:58 PM
Over a long time, I have looked at all the drawings in this topic, and wow!  It's so fun to look at everyone's doodles, so I thought I'd finally contribute a few of my own... although they aren't computer edited works of art, just my imagination on pieces of paper (thanks to Santa, I'll be able to express my thoughts in a real sketchbook now... aka no blue lined scraps ripped out of my school notebooks!)  But for now, ta-da.

[Here's a quirky little outfit that I really have no intentions of ever making, I was just experimenting with shapes and such.  And my yellow pencil.]

[I like this one better.  The figure came out how I wanted, and I really love the coat and would love to make it reality someday!]

I am eager to hear what anyone thinks!  Smiley

9  Stripes and Lace in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by indigo flower girl on: December 29, 2007 04:16:26 PM
This started out as something way different, but one big mistake and a fabric shortage later, I kind of like the way it turned out.

Modeled by carpet:

On me... couldn't get a good shot, but it shows the black lace and tiny pleats a little better:

Comments, good or bad?  Smiley

10  12 Days of Christmas Crafting in Winter Holidays by indigo flower girl on: December 06, 2007 01:08:29 PM
Hey everyone!  In two short days, I'm heading home for the holidays from college.  I don't get much crafting done when I am here, unless you count sketching, and I'm looking forward to having plenty of creativity time.  Here is my list of 12 crafting or cooking project I hope to do over break.  Many are things I've been wanting to try but haven't had the chance.  If I do one per day, it will be 12 days of Christmas crafting!  Just thought I'd share my plans for fun.  Smiley

1. Dipped Ritz - I have heard of these, but never made them or even seen them.  They sound simple and delicious, and I want to make them with a white chocolate drizzle and sprinkles on top... mmm.
Completed Dec. 11... I ended up making them with a peanut butter-butterscotch topping, and here's what's left of the first batch.  I think my decorating skills will improve with practice.

2. Polystyrene Ornaments - Might make some for gifts if they turn out very nicely.  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206148.0)

3. Pajamas
Completed Dec. 12... I'm wearing my new jammie shorts now!  Oops, my wet hair dripped on them.  Please ignore the spots.

4. Cinnamon Apples - This is an old family recipe that my mom and Grandma make each year for the holidays, and I want to learn.

5. Aprons - I'm hosting a Christmas cookie party, and I'd like to make cute aprons for each of the chefs to wear while baking and decorating.

6. Knit a Scarf - I don't know how to knit, but hopefully a scarf will be pretty simple to figure out.

7. Pillowcases

8. Ice Candles

9. Pumpkin Brownies - Came across the idea here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210281.0) and they sound delicious.
Completed Dec. 8... turned out more like cake, but very yummy.

10. Felted Mittens

11. Gingerbread Men

12. Hoodie

Yay, I want to start right now!  Cheesy
