Happy New Year... And a bit of DIY! ;) [Jan. 5th, 2014|05:04 pm]

Postée à l'origine par anaischopart sur Happy New Year... And a bit of DIY! ;)
First, a glorious year 2014 to you all, it has already been quite busy for me, but this morning I had a little gift to make and so decided to make a poppy. Yeah, sometimes I just decide to make flowers! ^^

Anyway, here's the result. I like it I actually didn't expect it to look this good since I made it quickly, except for the stem carved in wood, that I made yesterday. So it is made with wood, copper, metal, and paper, and not that much glue actually!
I hope you will like it! ;)

Haven't been knitting this winter basically at all.. Well a little, finally made a hat for my mom that I was supposed to do almost two years ago D: Embarrassing..
Any how here it is:

Pattern was from here, except my eyes lied to me.. I thought it was little different and that's why chose it. I realized my mistake not until it was ready and it was time to add the embellishment.

I thought it's like this (white marking showing the wideness I imagined):

The embellishment should be wide, not just some lame I-cord with the wide tail.. I was so annoyed when realizing the truth. I tried to knit my vision, but it just started to curl up and.. argh.
Then I decided some nice crocheted flower will do. Only problem is, I cannot crochet. So I spent one whole f*cking day to learn to crochet that damn flower!
There's two separate flowers sewed on each other to make it double, but I don't have proper picture of it :L

Hey
I do macreme, but im not up to buying expensive hemp. Recently I have been using anything I can get my hands on, t-shirt strips, shoelaces, crochet string, and yarn. The t shirt macrame looks really cool if you use tie dye shirts. I'm kind of getting bored of just using these material. Anyone have any ideas of what else I could possibly use?
I got so desperate that I am considering using that wierd netting bag around oranges just because of the cool texture.
    NEED IDEAS!
Thanks Love you all!

While the color combo wouldn't have been my choice, she didn't turn out too bad.

Cabled newsboy cap [Nov. 14th, 2010|12:07 am]

Wanted a newsboy cap. Was hard to find a pattern for such, but finally I found this one. It's not exactly what i was looking for, but I guess it'll do.. Modified the peak a little, mostly because i cannot crochet AT ALL x) and it also looks better when knitted.

I made that for my boyfriend, using a pair of gloves, wool, ribbons and some buttons. Spent less that $6 at Daiso and it's all worth it in the end! :)
