GRANNY-A-DAY FOR JULY


Both Granny-A-Day crochetalongs for April, May & June have been quite successful!

April:

Who wants to granny in JULY? So if you missed the APRIL or MAY or JUNE one or you have a big project to continue join us in JULY! We will begin JULY 1st!

This is basically a motivation crochetalong. If you want to work on a granny square, motif, one huge granny square blanket, this is a great way to set aside time everyday to get some serious work completed in an attainable amount of time.

People have come up with some really neat uses for grannys too! Different bags and blankets, shopping sack holder, slippers, scarves etc. I have been made 7" grannys and after a month I have 30 squares that make a perfect size throw blanket.

If you are intrested and would like to join we would love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then the finished product! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). At the end of the month we can piece together our work and show off our afghans and Inga bags and whatever else you can come up with to make with nifty grannies! (Must post a completed project in this thread.)

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pretty Skirt to Pretty Purse on: May 28, 2010 04:03:06 PM
A couple years ago I bought a skirt at Goodwill because the fabric was beautiful and $1. Finally, I made a purse from it today.


I don't why it keeps compressing the image. i have tried to fix it. Here is the link.

I have been working on a pattern of my own for a while and just couldn't get it right. Finally, I figured it out a little better and made a purse I deemed good enough to leave the house with (and another to give as a gift.)

I am going to keep trying until I get it perfected but I am pretty happy with the results so far!

26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter - Ravenclaw Handbook on: April 08, 2010 04:46:21 PM
I made this little book for my partner Edie22 in the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Swap. I just learned book binding and was ready to try my skills. Actually, I think I went over the size requirement by an inch. Shh...don't tell. So it is 5 inches x 5 inches. p.s. - the little pics are clickable thumbnails.

Its a Ravenclaw handbook. I stenciled the crest on the front:


It has 40+ pages all with pictures and info.


Ravenclaw info: house founder, past Ravenclaws, riddles to keep you your Ravenclaw mind sharp:





Hogwarts info: Edie's Acceptance letter, map, staff, house founders, recipes, the school song basic spell, the sorting hat rhyme etc..

















I hope you like!
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Twilight Inspired Long Necklace with Bat on: April 04, 2010 08:34:43 PM
I created a beautiful long necklace inspired by Twilight for the One Tiny Twilight Thing. It was for my partner aada that has a preference for Jasper. I was inspired by her whimsical tastes in jewelry.

Enjoy!
28  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re-Fabulous Flip Flops & tute too! on: March 19, 2010 05:47:53 PM
I wanted some fun new flip flops for vacation but was getting grief from the hubz because I already have a basket full of them. (They just don't get it.) So I improvised:


Fabulous!


Not so fabulous cast offs from someone else that I claimed but never wore because they were pretty ho-hum.

Supplies:
-Craft Glue - I don't know if this is the best glue for the job but its what I had on hand
-sponge brush
-lighter
-clips or clothespins
-scissors
-enough ribbon to cover the straps


Cut the ribbon to the angle  and length to fit the area you want to cover.


Melt the edge of the ribbon to prevent fraying. To do this hold up your lighter and move the ribbon close to the flame. You don't have to get it in the flame for it to get hot enough to melt.
This is a terrible photo but here ya go:


Apply a thick coat of glue with your sponge brush. Apply only to one area at a time. This will prevent the glue from drying out too fast before you get the ribbon applied.


Apply ribbon beginning at the center and smoothing out to the end. Place clips at top and bottom to keep in place while drying.


Now you have a snazzy pair of flip flops!

Granny-A-Day for the month of April! 04/01/10 - 04/30/10



I was thinking of making a granny square a day for the month of April! Then at the end of April pieceing it all together! I thought I'd be more likely to stick with it if there were more people doing it with me.

If you are intrested and would like to join I'd love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then the finished product! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). I am making an afgahn. Cheesy Or maybe I'll make two Inga bags!

I thought I should add some granny square links!:

30  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Pink and Green Fat Bottom Bag on: March 06, 2010 10:25:22 AM
I made this for my amazing swap partner, iheartzb, for the 100 Things About Me #2 Swap.
Its an altered Happy Hooker Fat Bottomed Bag from Debbie Stoller. I didn't want to buy handles. I used Sugar & Cream in Hot Pink & Hot Green = her favorite colors.



I lined it with a pink pinstripe.



I hope you likes!
