Experiments in laser cutting and such

Hey crafty peeps, I made my first laser cutting project and LJ'd about it from start to finish...if laser cutting interests you, click to read my entries.

So, I made another one...

I saw the pattern for this, and had to make it. But I don't know any kids, so I decided to use some super chunky wool and larger needles, and ended up with an adult hat, yay! It's super cute and really easy to make! (I say that, but I wasn't actually paying attention to the pattern when I was doing the earflaps, which is why they don't look the same as the pattern's.)
Raaaawr!Collapse )

Help out some Mardi Gras Indian Kids?


(He sewed that suit himself!)

The Red Flame Hunters All Youth Mardi Gras Indian Tribe are fundraising for their 2014/2015 season. They start sewing now and their season ends St Joseph's Night 2015. They're trying to fundraise for 20 Indians this year. The kids will be sewing their suits and learning the chants in their spare time after school. They just need to get the materials! Give 'em a hand or share the link please?

Birthdays, yay!

Woof! August seems to be the month of birthdays! In my family alone, there are six alone with mine included. Good thing we live far away from each other or we'd drown in cake!

When I asked my sister what she wanted for her birthday, she said "a Gryffindor scarf", so I went wool shopping. Then, I found this really sweet pattern for a bag, and decided to make that instead. Luckily, I was able to finish it today (on her birthday, but luckily before the end of the day!) and presented it to her.

Avast ye! Pictures below, arr!Collapse )

I'll put the pattern here for anyone who's interested. They don't just give you the Gryffindor pattern, but all the houses, and as long as you're creative enough and have the same number of stitches, you could make your own house shield. It's a really simple pattern for anyone who's even remotely interested! I definitely recommend it. =)

Hope all your projects are going well!

This was for my niece´s day :)
I made this kitty purse with foamy, but I made a mistake, I put candy into it, so my niece was more happy about the candy than the purse ><
Yappari, she´s a child :D
