1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / One Billy Goat Gruff. on: April 21, 2009 01:29:58 PM
Just before Mardi Gras in Mobile, Al I was a guest at the Buccaneer Yacht Club's Billy Goat Regatta 2009.  Not much sailing was accomplished, but it was a hell of a party.  I made this pendant to thank my hostess for the wonderful time I had, and to commemorate the great Goat!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / American Apparel ripoff on: March 12, 2009 07:46:33 PM
When I first saw the Le Sac dress on the AA website I thought, "I could make that.  I really want that!"  So finally I delved into my collection of vintage dresses to reconstruct a huge shirt-dress with a great print.  I just hacked it off at the armpits, bound the raw edges and added a channel for the ribbon to go through. 

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Little handspun bunny. on: January 17, 2009 10:43:01 AM
I'm always amazed when I see the little amigurumi critters over on the crochet board, and while I have delved into the land of the hook, knitting will always be my first love. Here's my interpretation of a round, stuffed and cuddly bunny.

He's two knitted balls, one larger than the other by about and inch, two smaller spheres ended after one round of decrease, a pom pom tail and short-rowed garter stitch ears.   I also discovered that I really love shredded foam as a stuffing medium- it's so much more pliable than fiberfill, albeit a bit more difficult to get into tight spaces.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Thrifty Striped Sweater on: January 16, 2009 07:54:15 AM
I got some great pastel tweeds in 80% wool at Jo Ann Fabrics for $1.50 a skein and immediately knew that I needed a big cushy striped sweater.  I knit from the bottom up on 8mm needles and made a severe v neck, used applied Icord to bind the neck opening and make the button loop, and used single crochet around the rest of the neck edge and bottom.    The sleeve are suuuuper long and wonderful for tucking into gloves.

This picture is true to color.

And this one's just creepy.   Tongue

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ribbed Fingerless Mitts With Thumbs That Grow As From a Vine on: December 29, 2008 11:25:48 AM
Well, I don't quite have that sweater written up yet, but I think it's best to start simple.  I invented these gloves last night while noting exactly what I was doing and when I was doing it, and typed her up this morning.  This would be the intended product:

And you can find the pattern here http://biddypunk.blogspot.com/2008/12/krackens-and-handwear.html

Happy knitting!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Organic Cabled Sweater- My First Finished Sweater! on: December 20, 2008 04:18:31 PM
I've been knitting very complicated things for a very long time, but there's just something about reading a pattern I can only take so much of.  So I picked up the sketchbook and the calculator and came up with this short-sleeved improvisation and knitted with a concept.  I'm so happy I did! 

Constructive criticism is appreciated.  And compliments too, of course.  Tongue
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hooded shirt and fur collared jacket in funky 70s colors on: November 25, 2008 09:00:14 AM
Wow, it's been a really long time.  I missed these shenanigans!

First up- my already adored hooded long-sleeved shirt!  Made of two of my brother's favorite but worn out tshirts and bits and pieces from my gargantuan stash of knits.  The hood is lined with some lovely cream crushed velvet.

And next- a super warm pull-over style jacket made of an old sweatshirt, two organic bamboo tshirts, vintage polyester paisley knit and some wild pink tipped orange faux fur.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / The tanning bed? on: April 19, 2007 10:39:02 AM
One of my friends recently gave me some supplies for silkscreening and now I lack just a UV source.  Knowing how resourceful my forum-mates can be, I know one of you will be able to tell me if I can use a tanning bed to expose my screens, right?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Orange bandeau bathing suit top. on: February 26, 2007 05:47:58 AM
Forgive me for posting before I have the bottoms finished, but I'm just so pleased with how this turned out.




10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Green cord bowling bag. on: February 08, 2007 07:27:26 AM
Green corduroy scrap, an idea of a pattern in my head.  Grosgrain ribbon, long zipper, button from boygirlparty, lined with a tacky t-shirt.  (Also stuffed with paper towels for body.)
