This is a Jawa doll I made for my boyfriend for Christmas. I used the pattern on Bitter Betty Blogs, with a few modifications. First time I had ever used conductive thread; it was a learning experience needless to say. Came out pretty great, though. I used the leg from an old pair of pants, and scraps of leather from an singleton glove.
I made paper cut silhouettes for my relatives I found the outlines of the shapes I needed, then used photoshop to but them together in the scene I wanted (making a different one for each family). I printed the design out in light gray on the back of the paper, then cut it out with a utility knife and framed it (using a piece of scrapbooking paper for the mat). I was very proud of myself, no nicks in the fingers!
It’s sitting on bubble wrap because I didn’t remember to take pictures until I was packing them to send, oops.
This was an awesome hat I didn’t really have a pattern for, although there are assorted ones on Ravelry. I used the duplicate stitch technique on Purl Bee to do the eyeball. Very proud of myself for this one …
I found this cool tutorial on Dollar Store Crafts and thought it would make a fun gift for a friend. She likes insects, so I printed out a few beautiful examples and used waterproof Mod Podge (instead of paraffin) to put them on the small soaps. Eventually the picture will wear off, but it’s a neat idea!
Made this for my friend, I used the pattern on made by a mamamonster. Fun, easy, think it came out well. The hardest part was finding the boning at the fabric store – apparently they keep it with wedding supplies, FYI.
At first I didn’t sew the top seams through the boning; this meant it didn’t stand open like it should to make the baby viewing window.
This is a scarf I made using the Wisp pattern I found on Knitty. I used Rowan Kidsilk Haze and bamboo buttons. It took me a while to get the pattern down; not that it is hard but I haven’t done many lace patterns. Love this scarf! Made it as a gift for a friend who lives in Hawaii – I thought it would be a pretty accessory that wouldn’t be too hot.
