Crafty-time Tuesday--Wednesday edition :P

So for some reason or another, I can't seem to get back into the swing of life. I'm still in denial that school has started, and I've been at it for like two weeks! I still get like 30 emails every time I check my gmail. Gah!
I want to shake this mood off desperately! I'm yanking on my hair as we speak!
It's annoying!

So anyway, to help with this, I promise to post a review of Redwall, by Brian Jacques tomorrow (one down, 29 to go. I need to get to the library :-/), a Writing Friday actually on Friday, and probably something on Saturday, because after a super awesome nerd party, I'm bound to gush about it here :P (and then I will sort through my emails also, tomorrow)

Oh, and before we get going on our craftynessness here, I'd like to say that my previous decision of posting one new project or two old ones is hereby proclaimed lame, and I will post whatever I darn well feel like it! Ahem. Moving on now :P

Okey dokey! This first one is something I *gasp* actually used a pattern for!
It's made from this loverly soft fleecy fabric that my amazingly wonderful sisters got for me when I was going through a time of misery (dentists are evil.....) to cheer me up.
And me (or is it I in this case?), being a horrible person and all, didn't get around to actually using it till several months after the fact. >_<

and it's side ways.... >_< Bring out the Christmas presents! (duh nuh nuh!) This is for my bestest friend. I made it using the same kind of yarn and pattern as my purple one (

And, the big one... (duh nuh nuh nuh nuh)

This shirt I am insanely proud of. This concept has been floating around in my head for a while, and I'm ecstatic that it turned out so great.
so with out further ado, I give you,

The Jailbird!

(AGH! another sideways picture! NOOOOSSSS!!!)

(uh, yeah I have no idea what I am doing with my hands in that one >_> <_<)
super duper long sleeves, which I loves to death!
(WHOOT! Another head turner! >_<)

so yeah, I took two shirts that were the exact same (different colors) and cut strips and sewed them together :D
I'm thinking I might stencil 'Jail Bird' on the back, but seeing as my skilz in that area are some what rudimentary, I'm undecided.

So yesh, that's this week's episode! Tune in next time to see if Jessica chooses Blake. Does Jake win her back? Will Nancy find her car keys?!? (yeah, sorry, it just sounded like some soap opera XP)

Lol, now that I've established that me+tired+blog post=dangerous thing, I think I'll call it a night :D


  1. I can't really tell what the first thing is, but it looks really snuggly. So I love it. And the shirt is way too cute! I don't know what you're going to school for, but if it's not design, you've totally missed your calling!!


  2. ARG! stupid blogger.... I had to battle with that post, and some of the text was deleted.
    The first thing is a pair of pajama pants, and the picture is side ways, so without a label, confusion is likely. *shakes fist at that post*

    Awwww, thank you! ^_^ that totally just made my day :D

  3. OOh, love that shirt! I'm sort of stripe obsessed. Although the thought of cutting two shirts apart and them sewing them back together in some sort of pattern makes me want to cry.

  4. Lisa and Laura stopped by! ^_^ And commented too! The Lisa and Laura who have like 400 followers! *happy dance*
    ahem. Thank you. I am composed.
    Seriously, thanks you guys. I love you and your blog!
