I'M BACK!!! Here are all the goodies Malina sent me! Sorry about the cell phone pictures, but my camera is on vacation with my dad.

I'm putting the best image as an image and the rest as links, so it's a lot cleaner and not as messy (so many pictures in one post drives me insane sometimes)

First, she sent a lovely swap binder! I love it and it's already being used! Not to mention the robot in the corner is adorably cute. Hehe.

The robot of cuteness:

Second, she sent an awesome collaged box for my crafty supplies. My yarn stash is slowly sneaking in there. I like the quote "Hell hath no fury like a woman's backhand" best (I'm a tennis player).

Close-up of the top:
Side panels:

I also got this awesome wrist cuff! (I see what you mean by the same idea, Malina!) We both ended up using yarn to spell out each other's name.  Cheesy
Not on me:

On me:

And last, but definitely not least, the tote bag of awesomeness! It's got a duck and it says "SARAH (with an "H")" It's sooo cute! I'm definitely going to be using this a lot.


And, of course, one awesome action shot (excuse the ridiculous yellow hat. I had the urge to wear my duck hat along with my new ducky tote).

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Thanks so much Malina!!! You've made my first swap an  awesome one! Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

12  New wrist cuff in Knitting: Completed Projects by chibi elphie on: February 03, 2007 04:51:34 PM
Made in brown and green wool yarn, I used this pattern. A half hour later, I came up with this! This makes me very happy indeed.

Without a wrist

With a wrist!

13  Brown&Green Beanie~! in Knitting: Completed Projects by chibi elphie on: February 01, 2007 06:50:05 PM
Here it is! 100% wool (can't remember the brand) in brown and green (I've been using too much green lately). I used this pattern, although I only knitted for about 15 cm instead of 20 before decreasing. This was my first experience knitting in the round (on both circular needles and DPN). I love this hat.

And my necessary "nerdy pose" picture

Hope you like it! Grin

14  Wicked Dress (black&green) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chibi elphie on: January 31, 2007 01:13:55 PM
Here's a dress I made from six shirts (three black, three green) based off one of the tutorials here. I took a shirt I had already stenciled and some old shirts and threw this together. It only took an hour or so (at most)



The stenciled images on the front and back


The cheesy pose

Hope you like it! (The scarf and the armwarmers are on craftster too)

15  Cabled Armwarmers! in Knitting: Completed Projects by chibi elphie on: January 31, 2007 01:04:54 PM
So, I'd been envying my friend's armwarmers. I'd been looking at some at the yarn store when my mom declared "I can make that!" I just started learning, so she offered to make me a pair. Even more amazing was watching my mom make cables! She doesn't use a third needle!  Shocked

Anyway, these were made from one skein of yarn and are incredibly warm.

Anyway, here they are!

Hope you like them! My mom is wondering what people think of them.

16  (Yet Another) Alien Illusion Scarf!!! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by chibi elphie on: January 31, 2007 12:52:43 PM
First completed knit project!!!  Grin

So, I used the same yarn recommended in the book (Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted Weight) and it is so warm. I've worn it to school and all my friends were entertaining themselves with the disappearing aliens. Anyway, here it is!

Hope you like it.

17  Wicked (the musical!) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by chibi elphie on: January 31, 2007 12:47:37 PM
Story time!

So, one weekend, I simply could not go to sleep. I'd been obsessing over Wicked music and I had the urge to try my hand at stenciling. So, I took what I bought and began stenciling! I just used the image from the logo and made up things as I went. Everything black is the original shirt. It's a bit lopsided on the shirt, but I love it otherwise. It's rather rough, but I'm very proud of my first stencil.

I also have a question. When I went to Michaels, there was nothing of the sort that resembled fabric medium. So, I currently have a stenciled shirt (heat set and all) but am terrified of putting it through the wash. I used acrylic paint, but is there any sort of way I can wash it without ruining the work?

Thanks for all the compliments!!!  Grin

Here's an action shot! I'm the dork in the Eiffel Tower hat with my friend showing off her own crafty hat, rockin' out to French pop at our school's Mardi Gras Parade. Haha, our class's float for our "mascot" was the best, but I don't have any pictures of that.

19  Eiffel Tower Hat of Joy! in Completed Projects by chibi elphie on: January 11, 2007 12:39:39 PM

This is one of my favorite school projects I have ever done. Bonus points for getting an A for my French I project. For Mardi Gras, one of the choices for our projects was to make a hat. I set forth to Michael's and bought my supplies: a bucket hat, some stiff sheets of grey felt, and red and blue felt.

I went home, measured the size of our scale model of the Eiffel Tower and began drawing out the pattern onto the grey felt (this stuff is like fuzzy cardstock, it's amazing). With a permanent marker, I drew all the crosses and details onto the grey felt and assembled it all together with a hot glue gun and some tape. After gluing the tower to the hat (a difficult task), I then cut out red and blue trapezoids for the brim of the hat and arranged them in the fashion of the French flag. As a final touch, I wrote names of famous places like the Champs-Elysees and fashion brands like Louis Vuitton. I trimmed everything off by hot gluing strands of fake pearls along the edges of the Eiffel Tower and the brim of the hat.

Here's the whole hat. The tower is about 13" tall, for a general idea of size...

and here are some shots of the sides.

It's been almost a year since I made this, but I'm still very proud of it. It's usually one of the first things that people see when they cisit my room.  Tongue

Comments/constructive criticism would be loved.  Grin
