21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / gifts for baby Na'kiya on: January 22, 2013 10:25:27 AM
my little sister is having a baby. and i like making stuff. so once again i went over board

nursing pads .i used this pattern.i used scraps of fleece, flannel, and cotton
i made 14 of them

quilt pillow I used this pattern

pattern for these mitts

out off all these items this blanket was the worst. my machine keep jamming, and making big piles of thread behind every few flowers. I had to change the needle four times, and the bobbin six times. it took three hours just to get around the whole thing. I had it on the slowest speed because i thought making it faster would cause more issues. but in the end its really pretty to look at.

I might knit some stuff for the baby but right now i think thats a lot of items.
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / projects 1/1-1/12 on: January 14, 2013 04:47:25 PM
I'm not really good about posting. or even explaining my items Im more of a photo dropper.I'm going to work on that. So heres the knit items that i finished for the first half of January.

I made these socks for my friend Jessica's dad. It is kinda a trade she is going to take pictures and update my Etsy page for me.
the yarn is super wash wool because i really don't think a guy is going to hand wash socks. The pattern is Guitar Man Socks by Rebecca Mercier

pattern Mohawk Earflap Hat by Jessamyn Van Den Elzen , the yarn is
Herrschners Whisper Soft  and Lion Brand Vanna's Choice

Pattern same as above plus pieces from a unicorn hat
Yarn vannas choice and a bunch of scraps from other projects

A coworker of mines as me to make him three hats the sock monkey hat (crochet so i guess it can't go here?), the mohawk hat and the unicorn. His daughters and wife loved all the hats. The only issue they had with the unicorn is that they say its too long and looks naughty. So once he can steal it from his daughter Im going to shorten the horn.

Theres no pattern for the hat, cast on 70 stitches or so. Rib for two or three inches, knit until it reaches the top of your head, decrease


Pattern chilly podster

The yarn for the hat and gloves is knit picks chroma, and pattons classic wool

24  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / my little pony is melting on: August 31, 2012 02:44:49 PM

my boyfriend and I love my little pony friendship is magical. So for his birthday i wanted to make him something pony. The week before we went to the triftshop and I picked up a beer mug. At first i wanted to do etching, but i also didnt want to buy new craft stuff just for one thing. So i found the paint that toby used for somthing he made me. I drew out a picture based off one online. and as i began to paint i noticed it said washable paint. so it was not best for the item. but i was already one coat in. i painted three coats. and checked to see how easy it was to wash off, and just a drop made it run. so i found some matte spray paint in my craft items. gave it three coat, and it still was going to run.

I was so upset that i just gave it to my boyfriend early and told him about all of it. he loved it and put it up on a shelf with his other stuff. so im not sure how i feel about how this turned out. I like the look of it but its no longer useful.

26  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / rainbows on: June 11, 2012 05:17:17 AM
Rainbows make me  Cheesy

so my first stabs at yarn dying had to be rainbow. I used kool-aid and a microwave . I used this website . for my first go round i didn't really write anything down or have any plans.I took my hank and twisted it, then made a swirl in my baking pan. flooded the yarn in rainbow colors. I think all the twisting is why i have white spots in the first set. then I did the brown yarn and just poured the rest of the kool-aid into the pan and hoped for good things.

If I can remember i just put one pack of kool-aid per cup and got it as close to the top as i could. which made very light colors. no plans so i just used colors and flavors i had, i also used food dye for the flavors i didn't have.

brown yarn

white yarn

shawl made with the yarn

For my second time i planned i found a sale 15 for 2.00. i wanted to get 30+ packs but my boyfriend was questioning my need for the 15  Roll Eyes

so I used only one cup per color. and i wrote done how i got my shades
for colors red- tropical punch, orange- peach mango and four drops of red, yellow- lemonaid and four drops yellow, green- twenty drops of green and five yellow, blue- blue magic, purple- grape and four drops of blue
i used plastic wrap and the whole counter to lay out my colors carefully.my wrap was not tight so a few colors leaked onto each other while cooking but things happen.

and the scarf i made with it

man i need more white yarn Smiley
thanks for looking.

29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / never ending beads- loads of pictures on: March 30, 2012 02:10:34 AM
When my boyfriend and I went to visit his mother,  she told me about all the jewelry making stuff she got in Mexico for 15$ . Then she asked me if I could make items for her with the stuff she brought. Heck she even brought a kit with the pillars and findings. So i said OK, I'm always up for a different craft. Little did I know how much I could make with all this stuff? I've been working on nothing but jewelry for the past couple of day here is what I've made. I also used some of the beads and things I had at home.

i just laid the beads out on the mat that was in the kit. once it looked pretty i choose the chain that looked best with the bead set up. And cut and linked. I like the look of metal and beads so there arent many just beaded items that Ive made.
And I haven't even used up all the items she gave me
