1  Re: Felt Badge Round 2 Gallery!! (Send Out July 9) in The Swap Gallery by Faux_Valentine on: July 19, 2012 01:00:27 PM
I received from faux_valentine!

She made me a needle felted butterfly and a ...hm..my first thought was a giraffe but now I think it rather looks like a lama. My bf thinks it is a donkey..(I have no idea what kind of donkeys he saw before..)
Maybe it is just a mythical creature..

Anyways. Thank you faux_valentine  Cheesy

Well it can be anything you want it to be but it was supposed to be a hippogriff guess it would have helped if i got the front legs right, and sent the note i wrote with it...i always forget the note oh well ><

Here are my amazing badges from two wonderful partners, i am so sorry that i havent posted them until now but i love them all and have already started sewing them onto my bag to show them off!
Glamis sent me a chameleon thats amazing and a sexy red headed scientist! so excited about them and the detail work is amazing!
petskin: sent me the most adorable yeti ( i love Yeti's) and an awesome zombie gnome with glowing ( in the right light) eyes. They are so amazing i couldnt be happier!

and a detailed shot of my sexy redhead

Thank you both for being such awesome partners!

3  Project bags! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Faux_Valentine on: October 05, 2011 09:20:59 PM
Hey guys.

I just finished a batch of small project bags and figured i'd post it. I can make a Tutorial if any one is interested in how i did it all you have to do is let me know! The awesome things about these bags is that they have a snap top meaning that they can bend out of shape to fit what you need then they Snap right back into the closed position!

The whole lot of them:

Closed from the top:

Fingering weight yarn:

How DK yarn fits from the top:

4  WIP Wensday 10-5 in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Faux_Valentine on: October 05, 2011 09:14:49 PM
No one else had started it so i figured i would go ahead and do so!

I have a few projects waiting for the needles. The one i completed half of today i cant show you as its for a fellow Craftster but im super excited about it.
The next thing i've been working on is my step fathers sweater. i have to get a measurement of the width of his favorite sweater before i can start but here is the swatch:

now the next thing isn't knitting but it's knitting related and i'd love to know if you all would like a tutorial on how to make them ( if you have sewing skills) the top has a snap top that allows it to snap back into the closed position so your yarn does not fall out they can be adjusted in width and depth to what ever you would want:

A ball of fingering weight in there:

how it looks closed:

I have finally gotten around to being able to take pictures and post the beautiful work that was done for me:

From Squire_inaria i recieved The magician and the fool.

The magician is from my favorite fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin:

The Fool was based on Malkavians ( a type of vampire):

there was a little bit of sticking because of the heat and humidity but its still beautiful!

and from cabaute

Its a Five of cups in hunger games themed. Its when rue dies and katniss buries her in flowers, which just so happens to be my Favorite part of the first book, how did you know ^_~

Thank you both so much for the beautiful cards. this was a wonderful swap and i had so much fun

The socks i knit for her are called Paraphenalia socks the pattern is here they are made from Stroll fingering weight by knit picks in pine these socks are the same size its the funny camera angles that makes them look like one is bigger ^_~

The other pair i made for her are out of the book personal foot prints by Cat Bordhi they are the basketweave socks. the yarn is by knitpicks its stroll hand painted in tea party these were fun and scary to knit as you knit the foot as a tube then cut the yarn and open the knitting to pick up stitches. scary but a ton of fun!
