2  Yay!! Anthropologie-inspired capelet- pattern by julsey723 in Knitting: Completed Projects by skirt on: November 15, 2005 11:02:21 AM
made from julsey723's pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62184.0




i like the stockinette side more with this yarn, it shows the little details better.

Made with awesome thrift store wool that I've had lying around for ages! I have tons of it left too...Smiley
I probably won't wear it with that brooch, but it was the one i grabbed for the photo.

I love it! I think I'm going to make my mom a pretty one for christmas.

4  Sebastian the Cat. in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by skirt on: October 17, 2005 10:59:29 AM


Meet Sebastian. One of his legs is smaller than the other, his ears are rather large and he has no tail. But I love him!

Sebastian is my first ever crocheted softie and I made him to give to my boyfriend back home in Texas when I finally get to see him in a month. He is for the boyfriend to hug when he misses me!

No pattern, entirely guesswork and scrutinizing other people's softies! I'm rather proud of myself.

Done!

Well, almost done. As you can see, there are still come ends to be woven in. But I was just so excited I had to post it.
I'm not particularly happy with how my lining came out, but oh well. It's lined with orange silk and a Laura Ashley fruit print cotton. I also added an interior pocket and cell phone pocket. The ribbons are pink and are not as shiny in real life as they appear in the photo! The yarn is Wendy 100% cotton.

The pattern was easy to follow and no mistakes that I found!

Jennye, do you mind if I post it in the completed projects board? Or should I wait until you've made the pattern public? Thanks again for such a great pattern!! Smiley

8  crochet beads / balls?? please help, i'm so lost. in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by skirt on: February 06, 2005 12:36:55 PM
hi guys, i've been struggling with this all evening and I can't figure it out!!
I'm a newbie at crochet, but I can read directions and abbr pretty well, i'm just not so good at creating my own patterns and working just from a photo.

I'm trying to make something like this:



i can't tell if they are crocheted around an actual bead or if they are crocheted balls stuffed with filling, but either way is fine!!
if anyone can point me in the right direction, i would be so grateful.

thank you Smiley

9  super soft yellow tie front SHRUG *semi-tut added* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by skirt on: January 31, 2005 02:50:17 PM


What's up super emo pose? Ha.

Anyway, I made this shrug without a pattern (yay! patting myself on the back.) from lightweight sweatshirt material (SUPER comfy). I am very proud of myself, because I actually got the sleeves to work...I always have trouble with sleeves.

The tails aren't usually so bunchy...I had my leg up on the toilet for effect...or something. Wink


OKAY. I kind of just made this as I went along, measuring & remeasuring about 32878597328975 times. I also have a dress form, which helped alot in the construction process. So I can't really post a tutorial, because some of the stuff I did I don't even know how it happened!

But here's the basics.



those are the pieces i cut out. I got the measurements by measuring the armholes and neckline of a shirt that fit me well, and also by fitting it to my dress form.

First I sewed the sides to the back, and that is the basic form of the shrug, minus the sleeves. Very simple, and you could even stop there if you fancied it sleeveless.

The sleeves were hard, and it involved tons of measuring and redoing the seams. I sewed up the sleeve fabric into a tube (long sides sewn together) and then pinned it around the armhole, right sides together. It took me four or five times sewing that seam to get it to wear it fit right, it's really trial and error. I also tweaked the seam down the sleeves to make them fit my arms better.

I hope this hasn't confused you all, I wish I could provide a better tutorial, but as I said, I just kind of made this up as I went along. If anyone has any suggestions/improvements PLEASE add them! Smiley

Thank you all for your lovely comments!!

10  Marc by Marc Jacobs Bangles - Crochet? Help? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by skirt on: January 29, 2005 12:54:24 PM
I'm a beginner at crochet, but this looks like something fairly simple. Was wondering if you experts could help a poor gal out?

I am totally in love with these Marc by Marc Jacobs bangles.



And that looks like crochet...am I right? It looks like it was done with ribbon or shoelaces or something.
But I was just wondering if someone could give me some basic instructions on how I would crochet around a plastic bangle like that? I would be very grateful! Smiley

Thanks!!
