Mobile Update, T-Shirt Crochet Purse

Mobile update of my purse. :) She is looking great, isn't she? I am just wondering now how to decorate her. I was thinking Tye Dye, but that isn't really my style... :/ Any ideas??? This started as an experiment , but I am hoping she comes out fabulous. ;)

   Where have I been lately??? Ehh, I'll just show you a picture.

I am learning to Crochet! I love it, soo fun! She's not perfect, but I'm working on getting better. What material am I using here? It's not yarn...  :)

   I plan on making lots of jewelry in the future so keep your eyes peeled for updates. :) 

  Oh, and over the rainy (sad voice) weekend we(me and the kidos) made beads and charms from salt dough. :)  Fun recipe here, along with some fun ideas.

Here's a fun little guy I made. (It's supposed to be Kirby from Nintendo.) More pictures coming after the things we made are painted.

Cluster Rings

   Over the Holidays I made Cluster Rings for the first time.  :) Well here are two of them, they have already been given as gifts. I plan on making more very soon though. So keep your eyes peeled!

   I worked with 20 gauge wire and glass beads. <3

Scarf Drama-rama

   I am happy to say, I am finding joy in my new love for knitting. :) I love it, but it is quite the love/hate relationship. I started a nice red scarf project, not the one I previously posted about. I was knitting in the dark really, I must have been tired. Any who, some how I lost my place or became unraveled, my stitches JUMPED! They looked off like some sort of manufacturing malfunction. Want to see what I had to do...

Oh yeah! Not a pretty picture, and considering this is being done on a loom, I had to take all the stitches off the pegs and put them back on just right so they didn't mess up.

   Here she is today though, no scares and in recovery doing just fine.

   I also was goofing around on line when I found Stunning: No Sew Bow-Tie Ribbon Statement Necklace Tutorial, I decided to try my hand and make one.  :) Here it is, mine doesn't look nearly as good as hers, but I tried. 

   It came out o.k. I will try my hand at more at a later date maybe, it was fun to make. Thank you, for stopping by.

My Knitted Scarf

   I decided to get to work on a really thick, pretty soft scarf for myself. The first scarf I make for myself has to be bad to the bone! Well excuse me if I cut this entry short... but I have to get back to work!!! (This will take a while.)

   Home made loom entry tomorrow. :)
