91  my knitted animals in Knitting: Completed Projects by ilovepaper on: April 16, 2005 01:55:40 PM
My daughter has a stuffed animal obsession and I have an obsession with quick knitted projects. These are all from The World of Knitted Toys:
Sammy the sea lion-

sweet petunia girl the kitten (hey, I just make 'em... my daughter names 'em)
I have no idea how her ears got so big, it could have been the merlot I was drinking that night  Undecided

and finally a deranged 1 legged polar bear that I screwed up without drinking any wine. He is ENORMOUS, two different colors, lumpy and my kids call him giant-pig-dog-bear. He is pictured with Leo my non-knitted kitty:

*Please note* I am shamelessy showing off my first "quilt in progress" in these pictures.  Grin

Here's my (somewhat deranged looking) version:

I'm not sure what yarn I used, it's sort of cotton-y and nearly impossible to knit... now I know why it has been at the bottom of my yarn stash all these years.
My 5 year old will love him!

WOOHOO! I got my fabulous stitchmarkers from the most awesome Pink Kitty! Unfortunately, you can't see how nice they really are because of my crappy scanner.

My favorite has to be the beaded one that is a lava lamp (soooo cute), next I love the ribbon and beads. They are all great and I love them. My cat is going to go crazy over the feather one!

Thanks Pink Kitty!

94  heart shaped cupcakes made with marbles, yes marbles! simple tutorial in Valentine's Day by ilovepaper on: February 14, 2005 09:46:47 AM
I know this is a little late to make for valentine's day but, heck who wouldn't want a heart shaped cupcake any day? I saw this on my local news last week.
1- Prepare your cake batter as usual.
2-line cupcake pan with paper liners.
3-fill cups 2/3 full as usual.
4-slide a glass marble between the paper and the pan. This will cause the paper to crease inwards forming a "V"
5- bake as usual, let marbles cool before handling them... trust me, they stay hot for a while.  Embarrassed
This is what you get:

How simple is that?
You can also make heart shaped brownies in the same way. I made both for my kindergarten daughter's class today. Her teacher (mrs. hart!) looooved them.

95  bead my valentine in Valentine's Day by ilovepaper on: February 01, 2005 06:26:07 AM
Here is a fun project from American Girl Magazine that my 9 year old made for her friends at school for Valentine's Day. I think it's fun for any age and they look really nice hanging in a window.

Sorry, I couldn't post a pic of her finished ones but my scanner hates beads and I am w/out a digital camera.

Here are instructions, although it's pretty easy to figure out by the picture.

I'm done! Actually I was done but now I have pictures.
The bulky one is my very first knitting project that I completed in December,  I was practicing  purls by stitching P4, K4, P4 back and forth and just continued and let it become this scarf. It's nothing special but I love it.  Cheesy
The fuzzy one is a go go garter from yarn that my daughter picked out to match her coat.

I am so excited by this un-swap, I have wanted to knit for so long and always gave up, but this kind of forced me to stay with it and I am thrilled.
I'd better sign up for the next one because altered books are also on my "some day I'm gonna make one of those" lists.

ok luluB
 I'll go first.
I've only been embroidering for a few months now and this is about as neat as I can get it. Alright, alright I traveled small distances a few times but not too much.
I tried to make these really neat even though the backs won't ever show, they are part of a quilt I'm making for my 9 year old daughter.  2 patterns from Sublime Stitching... as if you couldn't tell.
here are the backs:

and here are the front's:


Crappy scanner! I really need to save some money to replace my dead digital camera.

Pardon the icky scanned image:

Just a little tea towel to go in my friend's gift basket. I found these vintage zodiac patterns on ebay and had to buy them because the virgo was so cute.
Your pouch is too cute sarahdotcom.

99  Re: Some of my cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ilovepaper on: December 02, 2004 11:25:14 AM
here are some that are a little different

 I sewed a message onto these using narrow ribbon with winter messages pre-printed on.

wow i really love those! how did you make them? did you just sew the felt and ribbon onto regular paper?

Yep, that's all I did Rumble. I get everything where I want it on a piece of contrasting paper and stitch around it, then I zigzag stitch that piece of paper onto a blank card. I do it this way so that if i botch it, I don't waste an entire card..... I learned this the hard way.

I made 2 bags! (Man, I take a crappy picture!)
This one is from a really soft micro-fibery type remnant bin find with awesome pink polkadot lining and a sublime stitiching darling daschsund. I made it similar to Jenhook's skipping bag. That flap is sitting a little funny in the picture but I'm happy with the way it came out.

This fabric is actually from new curtain valances that I found at Christmas Tree Shoppes here in CT. They were $1.00 each and I bought a bunch for no other reason than they were cheap and kinda cute. This pattern is a cross between a jordy and a skipping bag with a cute fabric flower:

I think I may try a quilted tote before the month is done because I'll need it for my knitting project for January!
