1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: elf slippers that became court jester on: December 06, 2013 05:26:32 PM
I shall be making a secret pair of these for my husband, if I can wangle some time without him watching. Beautiful work!

(I fell in love with him the evening I saw him perform with his old band The Pendulums in Glasgow, Halloween 2007. He was dressed as a gnome, in green tights, a green polo neck shirt, a red hat and red felt shoes that he's made himself. This pattern reminds me of that very much!)

It's always lovely to see Elijah made up. He was named for the new baby son of a friend of mine, who died a couple of years after his birth. It's a beautiful memorial to Julianna and to Elijah himself (who is doing just fine with his Daddy and family around for him). I miss his Mum very very much.

Very nice! I might do something similar for the UK but for each county/country!

It's lovely. My Mum knits similar items for the local neonate unit. It makes a huge difference to know others are thinking of you.

Very beautifully done! I'm planning on doing a smaller scale project as a wall hanging in the same vein. The 'pop-artness' of the image is really important I think. The block colour looks so smart and defined. Can't wait to see what you do next!

I feel your pain. Some ribbon yarns can work, if they're solid knitted tubes for example and you keep them from twisting as you knit. I can't abide any kind of fake 'fur' yarns or Snowflake fuzzy soft yarn. It's too frustrating to bother with. I even find then a pain to crochet with, though it's easier. I'm pondering if they'll be easier to weave with.. we shall see!

P.S. Your mum will love it because *you* made it. Us mums are like that. When my son brings home his artwork it's a real and genuine thrill that he made it for *me*. Even my master knitter of a mum appreciates me knitting for her, especially socks!

I hope it goes well for you. Let me know!

Thanks for posting this. I've had six miscarriages since I was a teenager, with one succesful live birth. It's really empowering and healing to see other people's work based around the experience. I hope you do try again. One miscarriage is very common, especially before 14 weeks. Hope you and your partner are coping as well as you can.

It's wonderful! Do you have a pattern anywhere? My 11 y/o is a huge Lego fan and I think he'll want one when I show him this. Well done!

I have to wait till next week to buy some paper, a little fabric and a sewing awl. I'm making paper this week for it though! I have a pile of inclusions for the paper like snippings of feather, glitter to embed, silk fibres, thread to stitch through the sheets, pastel and chalk to grind and sprinkle on the wet paper, very fine metallic thread to embed.. I'm excited Smiley

I'm trying to decide on the best way to incorporate handmade paper and fabric 'sheets' (like calico, linen, Aida, canvas etc) to work on within the book. I was looking at making up the signatures from a mix of papers and fabric, but the different thicknesses and textures might make it hard to stitch together. Ideas?
