41  Pirate Striped Wristwarmers -- my first pattern (link) in Knitting: Completed Projects by halfelvenwriter on: January 20, 2006 11:16:31 PM
It's not much, but it's the first thing I've made my own pattern for, so I wanted to show it off.  I'd have taken a picture of the pair, but I needed one hand to hold the camera Grin

I used some of the WoolEase I'd been holding onto for a Jesse's Flames sweater, but the sweater just wasn't coming along, so I decided I might as well find a new life for the yarn.  It also gave me a chance to try out fair isle, which made the project more fun.
They've survived almost daily use at home, school, and work.  I'm quite happy that they've held up so well.  There's a pattern for them on my site.

42  It's Wonder Woman! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by halfelvenwriter on: June 16, 2005 10:17:16 PM
I did this after work last night, and was relatively pleased with how it turned out.  I found this great sheet of Wonder Woman paper earlier that day and knew I had to find a place in my current altered book for itthe page called "Fashion Personality" just screamed collage.  Also used cutouts of figures from other pages in the book, some retro paper and sticker, colored rhinestones, eyelets, and some vintage sequins and hat bangles.

My altered pages tend to be more like layouts than collagesit must be the editor in me.  This is my first collage attempt using more than just paper and paint.  Any ideas or suggestions for the future?

43  Re: DIY Cloth Pads Tutorial in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by halfelvenwriter on: July 11, 2004 11:14:46 PM
*yay* I made one!

When a friend linked me to this, I thought it was way too weird.  And then I read some reasons why cloth pads are better for you, and now I figure they're worth a try.  Call me ridiculously ignorant, but I never even knew these existed until two days ago.  Thanks for the tutorial!

44  Watercolor Leaf Wash Coptic Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by halfelvenwriter on: July 10, 2004 08:30:21 PM
I woke up this morning with a nagging feeling that I should make a journal for one of my friends, so in the spirit of summer vacation, I put one together and gave it to her this afternoon.

I had some fun figuring out what to do about the cover papers.  She loves plants, so I wanted to subtly incorporate something natural into the design.  I laid the leaves where I wanted them on the paper and then colored over the entire paper with the side of a white crayon.  After that, I went over the paper with green watercolor.  I needed to use drawing paper because the leaves wouldn't make a good rubbing on the heavier watercolor paper.

This is the tutorial I used to bind it: http://benrinehart.com/images/pdfs/coptic_stitch.pdf (thanks, unlikely redhead, for the link)

Does anyone have any other ideas for interesting cover paper designs?
