1  zippered keying coin pouch (with tutorial) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bethntim on: February 11, 2017 06:35:03 PM
no in progress shots but this was SO easy I think you guys will have no probs following along.
materials:
4-5 inch circles (I used the same fabric throughout but you can choose an outer fabric and a lining fabric, in that case 2 circles of each)
1-7 inch zipper
1-1 inch D-ring
start by cutting 4 total 5 inch circles (4 of the same fabric, or 2 outer 2 lining)
cut 1-1 inch square from outer fabric (this is the strap for the d-ring)
fold the 1 inch square in half, right sides together and sew a scant 1/4" seam allowance, turn right side out, press with seam in the middle and top stitch down both sides, set aside
cut 2 of the 5 inch circles in half, either 2 of the same, or 1 outer 1 lining
sandwich 2 of the halves (either 2 of the same or 1 outer 1 inner) centered on the zipper and sew a scant 1/4" seam allowance, fold back and press open. sandwich the remaining 2 halves on the other side of the zipper and sew together, fold open and press again.  now top-stitch close to the edge of the fabric to keep it out of the way of the zipper. Open the zipper about halfway (to make it easy to turn later), take the 2 full circles and lay them wrong sides together, take the 1 inch square that you sewed earlier, fold in half, and pin in place over the zipper at the open part, with the raw edges on the outside, then take the two full circles and place on top, you will now have 4 layers of fabric and the d-ring strap to sew through.
carefully sew around the edges with 1/4" seam allowance taking care when sewing over the zipper.
trim zipper and excess fabric and turn right side out. I used chop sticks to help turn the bag to push out the edges. top-stitch around outer edges to give a more finished look. Attach the d-ring and voila!

6  Crochet knotted head wrap/ear warmer-with tutorial in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: December 24, 2016 08:24:30 AM
Whipped this baby up in about an hour. Super simple and super satisfying

You'll need:
Yarn (duh)
G hook
Needle
Row 1: Chain 12, DC in second chain from hook
Place 1 more DC in same stitch
Sk 2 chains, place 3 DC in next chain, Sk 2 chains, place 3 DC in next chain, skip 2 chains, place 3 DC in first chain made
You should have 4 clusters (shells) of 3 DCs
Row 2: Chain 2, place 2 DC in middle stitch of shell from previous row, place 3 DC in middle of next 3 shells from previous row 
Row 3 and every following row: repeat row 2 until desired length, I stopped at around 20 inches, just measure what us comfortable around your head
SC edges together, fasten off, weave in ends
To make band:
Row 1: chain 6, DC in 2nd chain from hook, DC in each stitch (5 DCs )
Row 2-5: chain 2, DC in each stitch (5 DCs )
Gather main head wrap portion and pucker over row of SCs you stitched to join the piece. Place the band over it and stitch together on inside. This will give it a clean look without any seams showing through.
Now go out and look fabulous!

8  Messy bun hat-with tutorial in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: December 20, 2016 06:41:35 AM
I've jumped on the messy bun/ponytail hat bandwagon and I absolutely love the end result.
While the pattern is not my own, I did modify it to accommodate my needs
Here is the original pattern, it's the 5 star beanie from yarnspirations
http://www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/5-star-beanie.html
And here are my modifications:
After working the ribbing, do 2 complete rounds of the single crochets and stars , start your decrease on the 3rd set of single crochets, work 3 sets of decreases, after your last set of stars, work 1 round of single crochets (making no decreases) while crocheting over an elastic hair tie.  This will help the hat hold it's shape around the ponytail hole.
Here's the finished product!

Another angle (this shows the stitches better):

On the happy recipient, nothing like creeping a pic Smiley

I would like to thank the original queen of crochet, anderlance, for her amazing crochet work and the inspiration for this graphgan. this is the first one I've ever done and it was quite an undertaking. Over 36,000 stitches went into this!
