11  Bridesmaid in Blue in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by misplacedhippie on: January 10, 2008 09:32:58 PM

I made the Blue one. 

I used Vogue Vintage Pattern 2267 Original 1954 Design
Now the changes:  I left out the zipper, it fit over my head and I did not want it tighter around the waist.  I also left out the waist ribbon for the same reason.

I actually made the largest size on the pattern, which on the pieces is an 18, now this might be the original sizes or they may have scaled it to larger bodies.  Either way I loved the dress, it stressed the positives, hid the negatives, and I felt pretty which is a good thing for a Maid of Honor to do.  I have since made it a shrug and wore it to a christmas party.  Same dress I promise, the wedding picture has a more accurate color.

I got home from work the other day, and my Internet was out, and I had a package from England! (I have never recieved mail from europe before) So I was very excited, but bummed that I could not Immediately share my crafty goodness! Here is what I got from Shazrasha.

First in my box were these book marks! Link from Zelda the game, and one That is D&D! I love to play halflings, and absolutely love sidequests in Zelda so they are both very appropiate!  And then this beautiful wooden magnet with a georgous dragon burned into it (i forget the technical term for this process).  It has a place of honor on My fridge now!

Then there is this lovely bag of Holding, that folds up into its own pouch, that when deployed the pouch becomes a pocket (the pocket is on the back).  I used it today to go to the post office, It comfortably carries a flat rate envelope and tape!

At the bottom of the box was this innocent looking fuzzy die in a sea of forien candy goodness.  The Daim Bar i must say is the best toffy I have had.  Puts Heath bars to shame!

AHH! its a WereDie! it came with its own stats too!

I absolutely love everything in my package! now for my partner to get hers, I hope she enjoys her stuff as much as I do mine.

17  Owl Cozy *Adult Content* in Knitting: Completed Projects by misplacedhippie on: March 28, 2007 03:44:12 PM
For this cozy I used two balls of Lion brand Watercolors Bright Clouds yarn.  I held two strands together to make a tighter fabric.  I found this on sale at Michaels for $1 a ball!  I had the Yellow yarn that I used for the feet in my stash.   I used 8 yards of Red Heart Yellow yarn for the bottom drawstring and feet.  According to the website http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/061447.html a skein of red heart is $2.29 for 198 yards.  Using only 8 yards =$0.01 I have had this yarn for years though so no cost to me.  The Felt was 20 cents a sheet at AC Moore, I used three colors so $0.60 of felt, though I used less than one quarter of each sheet so I used 15 cents worth of felt. There is no stuffing inside, just approximately 6 yards of left over yarn to give the head a little weight. The body has an Interior pocket to cozy the item tightly so it does not get lost and the owl stands up on a shelf.  I sewed the eyes and beak on with the yarn, I split the fluffy part from the strong strand and used the strong strand to sew the pieces together.  

Total pro-rated cost $2.16

So I still had the money to buy the item to be cozied! $5.49 at this website: http://www.cheaplubes.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=136

The condoms were free The Heath Department gives them away free all the time.  

Total pro-rated cost with items to be cozied $ 7.65



I forgot to attach my reciepts - Proof of my cheep yarn!

So I got this sweater at the Good will for $3

Unraveling it took one episode of Law and Order, and the movie Fight Club, but all the seams were good seams!
Even the colar was a good seam.  I figgured the colar was a lost cause, but was willing to try for the body and sleeves.
Yielding Yarn Vomit

My moms birthday is Today so I made her these:

Now I am off to mail them, better late than never!
Toasty warm and 100% wool.

My January Sock! thats right Only One I don't realy like making socks.  I followed the pattern on the yarn ball - Lion Brand Magic Stripes superwash wool.

A Sock in progress, it feels as though the foot may be a bit baggy....

A finished sock, with a lumpy toe, First Kitchners stitch that worked (looked right) and did not give a Giant Lump in the work.

Different angle of my finished Sock.
