41  Help with Ice Creamy Hat Pattern in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by ninjanator on: October 17, 2007 05:00:55 PM
Hey everyone Smiley

I saw this hat on etsy:

listing: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7238539

and i fell in love Cheesy this would be so awesome but unfortunately, it's a vintage shop, so it isn't originally crafted by the seller, and on top of that, i'd like to make it in another colour.

Now i know the title of the item says Knit, but i swear those are crochet stitches in the lower spirally bits.

If anyone has any idea of how to approach/make this hat, any help would be greatly appreciated ^^

42  A series of Animal People XD in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ninjanator on: August 31, 2007 07:47:40 AM
I've decided to paint all of my close friends as people in animal suits this year as part of their DIY birthday presents. This is the 1st one in what will be a long series Smiley

Acrylic on crappy dollar store canvas (with pencil crayon highlights and scribbles). In case you can't decipher what my crazy noggin thought up, he's in a superhero fox suit Tongue His face is actually a really bad attempt of water colors. it didn't turn out right, but somehow i like this better than your everyday beige coloured skin so i kept it ^^

I've contemplated putting the lyrics "I'm only a man in a silly red sheet, looking for kryptonite on this one way street" on the left side (hence the larger gap) and making this more of a mixed media thing, but i'm not sure. What do you guys think?

43  Birthday Presents ^^ in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ninjanator on: August 31, 2007 07:41:08 AM
So out of nowhere, i got the crazy idea this year that I'm going to craft all of my friends' birthday presents (friends as in close friends. very close. I'm not a sweatshop worker afterall Tongue) This is part of a present for a friend whose birthday is coming up in september ^^

Stones are beach glass from a beach we both went to this summer

Just something...fancy i suppose as her mum isn't very keen on her wearing fanshy smanshy things, and being the rule breaker that i am, i had to make it Tongue

Comments and critiques are very welcome ^^ although not about my scanner as i am still a poor student Tongue

44  My Whimsical Summer in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ninjanator on: August 31, 2007 07:31:21 AM
I finally decided to stop being lazy and post some of my projects Smiley I personally hate wearing metal in the summer, especially around my neck, because it gets irritating as you sweat, not to mention the infamous metallic smell  Angry So all of my necklaces this summer incorporated very little metal, if at all. Enjoy ^^

(Sorry for the crappy shots, they're actually scanned as I still live in the cavemen era/can't afford to get a good digital camera  Embarrassed)

The stone at the bottom is actually wire wrapped beach glass that i got while beach-ing one day Smiley

The off-white thread that you see in there is size 10 crochet thread, and the 3rd necklace (with the twisty circle at bottom) is in fact, crocheted Smiley

Just got my package! Hooray! Retro is an AWESOME & ORIGINAL swap partner Cheesy unfortunately I only have a scanner, but I managed to scan I think at least half the things Smiley (Please post pics if you have any Laura Smiley)

She made me:

   A decoupaged clipboard
   An AWESOME cherry blossom (I thinkwell its pink and its very nice Tongue) picture frame that has little 3d wooden pieces sticking out of it Cheesy
   A wooden NINJA necklace Smiley

   A box of cards! With awesome stamped envelopes! (they totally put my cards to shame Tongue)

   Little play dough thingies that I have named my medallions! Funny story I thought something smelled really good when I opened up the box and I thought it was a sweet candy or something. I gave it to my mom to smell and she couldnt really place it either. Not until I read the letter from Laura did I realize that these little medallions were made from PLAY DOUGH Tongue and thats what smelled so good xD

   AWESOME button belt (it also has bling Cheesy)

   3 fabulous fabric bookmarks! I am always in need for more bookmarks I think I must have over 20 now, but I keep on placing them all over the place so these are perfect

   an AWESOME felt and bead covered mulberry journal Smiley
   One of my favorites loteria magnets!

   TONS of scrap paper beads I am going to have so much fun with this ^^
   Baseball cap with buttons and a bag of additional buttons! My bro cannot put it downhe has basically claimed it as his own even though the hat is way too big for him Tongue
   A NINJA crossing mat!!! Its already sitting there and its perfect cause its gorey and ninja-y at the same time Tongue

As if that wasnt enough, retro included a very very pretty squirrel & bird jewelry holder (And alsoit has a $400 tag on the bottom of it XD not sure if that was on purpose or not but it made me laugh)

She also sent a bracelet kit with awesome chunky beads and a HUGE bundle of crochet patterns ^^ Thanks so much! (for everything and my mom has already stolen the crochet patternsI know this is just by coincidence but one of my teachers is about to have a baby and the crochet baby blanket is a great gift)

Oh yeah, there was also a pig stuffie from Charlottes Web that Ive been hiding from my bro

great job batgrrl! what a great way to use the scarf!!! Cheesy and i love the felt purse ^^

since retro has already received, and has not posted pics yet (which she will but i'm super impatient  Embarrassed), i will blind you all with a scanned image XD (don't mind the odd odd shadows and light and stuff...)

Can't wait till i get my large oatmeal box Tongue

49  Re: SO much to do! (Suggestions?) in Weddings and Bridal Showers by ninjanator on: March 30, 2007 07:29:22 PM
i found this site with some vegan recipes Smiley


the stir-fry and the cookies would probably be the easiest to whip up and the easiest to warm up ^^

as for the invitations, try something like this:

get some cardstock, some scrapbook paper for the backing Smiley add a graphic trim if you want around the invitation (coordinate it with your wedding colours) and instead of doing massive gluing, punch holes in the top and tie together with a ribbon Smiley even add beads or fake flowers if you're feeling particularly creative XD

LOVE that avatar meg Cheesy i wish i could see his stage production. but alas, i live in canada. end of sob story Tongue

wish we had Joann's here in canada Tongue we do have michael's but it's not the same cause the nearest one is in the suburbs ... and i don't think ttc (transport) goes up to that area very often Sad

that's why this swap was so great for me, cause i usually get my crafty supplies from the dollar store anyway (there's about 3 different chains here in toronto so there's a wide selection of things Smiley)

anyway, i used:

- a pillowcase
- a lot of wire (for a buck though Cheesy and i still have over half left over... definitely one of my favorite buys)
- seed beads
- yarn (a little crappy...not the best kind you can get obviously but ... good enough with my limited crochet/knitting skills XD)
- velcro (with sticky backing which turned out to be a pain in the butt D:)
- felt Cheesy (who doesn't love this stuff?)
- jelly thingies (can't reveal too much about that)
- something that glows in the dark (can't reveal too much either)
- and a dundundun...MYSTERY ITEM (it'll be really obvious what i made if i actually named it Tongue so yeah...)

so that's like ... 10 bucks plus tax Smiley

and just cause i like teasing ... and because i can, and cause i know my partner likes papery goodness Cheesy (every picture of the items i made are completely scanned with my brand new spankin scanner cause i don't own a digital camera Tongue it gets a little...interesting at times)

hehehe ... now you'll just have to get the package to know whatever else i crafted (what in the world could i have made with ... wire? Tongue)
