141  Skirt to cute stripey shirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by OnePinkHippo on: July 27, 2007 08:52:31 AM
This skirt had been hanging in my closet for ages, and I had only worn it once. I hated the way the fabric went in...waves (for lack of a better word) and long it was.

Before:


And after:

'Scuse the face!


Attempting to show the slanting hemline. It was a mistake when I was trying to cut it straight, but since the lines go that way, I like it.

The straps (made from scrap) and the buttons are just decoration, because the elastic in the waist holds it around my chest. I love this shirt, and am thrilled that I found something to do with this old skirt.  Cheesy

142  T-Shirt Clutches Galore! (img plenty) in Knitting: Completed Projects by OnePinkHippo on: July 17, 2007 05:43:27 PM
Credit: Summer 2007 issue of Knit.1

I love these little bags! It's such an easy pattern and works up easily.

This is the first one I did, using an actual t-shirt. Unfortunately it sheds little orange circles, so my lamb tape measure turns orange, but it matches my knitting bag.


Then I made this one for my mom for her birthday using stash brown yarn and Paton's Cha Cha.





^The lining is some satiny polyester from an ugly pillow sham.

This is for my Grandma, who taught me to knit and crochet.


And this is mine made from Lion Brand Mystery. I love it.




I'm not too fond of using t-shirts because they shed like crazy, and I like experimenting with the different yarns. It's still a cute project.

Thanks for looking!  Grin

143  Boy Beanie Uh-Oh. in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by OnePinkHippo on: July 10, 2007 09:54:56 PM
My boy wanted a hat, and picked out his yarn, etc etc. I was looking through my HH book and thought the boy beanie would be excellent. But I'd never crocheted in the round before (except an ami, but that was the spiral) so I decided to test it in some scrap yarn. This is what happened:





I desperately need some help! I've tried it over and over again, and it always comes out with the little odd cone at the top. Could it be the tension? Maybe I pull it too tight?  Huh

It does make a great sombrero:



I'm at such a loss. Sad Thank you in advance if you can help me!!

144  Catwarming Set (First post!) in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by OnePinkHippo on: July 07, 2007 01:38:25 PM
EDIT: They have real pictures now.

Hello all! Here is my catwarming set for my (very spoiled) kitty's birthday. I learned a lot, and sometimes they were a pain in the neck, since I was exhausted but I like the way they came out.





Thanks for looking!
