1  Flowery Fanny Pack in Crochet: Completed Projects by MaryQcumberfairy on: May 07, 2008 12:54:49 PM
I've decided to stop bookmarking things to craft and actually start crafting.  So here is my first project based off of this belted bag: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=220509.0



I used the buckle and strap rings off of an old bag so it can be a belt or regular bag.


Well I can tell that I am bad at explaining my craft so I will just let my bag do the talking.


Thanks for looking!!  Smiley

3  Crochet picture Catch up in Crochet: Completed Projects by MaryQcumberfairy on: May 05, 2008 06:55:32 PM
I have been way behind in posting things lately, so I am going to show off my crocheting now.  The projects get better as I go along, so bare with me.

First, I have a bag I made from the Happy Hooker book.  It is supposed to be an orange on a yellow bag, but I didn't' follow the gauge and ran out of yarn and it came out big and ugly.  When I finished it my dad asked why I had a crooked pumpkin on a bag.  Smiley  It was a good project to teach me to follow directions, and I still might frog and remake it.


This next one I made out of necessity.  I was living in Mexico for the months of February and March this year, which was fun.  My problem was that the sun would come in through my window in my host families house about 30 minutes before my alarm went off and wake me up.  I only brought a little yarn and a hook, so I decided to crochet an eye mask for myself.  I made it up as I worked and just tried to make it as tight as possible so sun wouldn't go through. It worked pretty well, but it somehow go lost on the way home Embarrassed So this is in memory of my first crocheting project that I made up and completed all by my self.


The last one is from the Star Baby Blanket Along.  I made it about a month ago but it seemed too small for anyone but a baby so I put it away.  When I pulled it out for pictures though it seemed really large. So maybe I'll keep it for me or a smaller toddler instead of a baby.  I made it out of a huge skein of yarn that I've had forever and some black Super Saver my grandmother gave me.


Now I am working on a blanket for my mom's birthday and a (hopefully) cool fanny pack type bag.
Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism welcome.

5  New to sewing machines...HELP!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by MaryQcumberfairy on: April 17, 2008 05:57:19 PM
Okay, so here's my story:
I have always wanted to be able to sew, but my mom has always said she has no patients or time to teach me.  I never really got past sewing semi-crooked lines for doll blankets.  So, while she is on vacation, I thought I'd break out the sewing machine we bought at a white elephant sale when I was 9 and had fixed.  The problem is, I don't really know the first thing about even threading the machine.  I think I got the top bit, but I have no clue what to do with the bottom. My machine is a Necchi, I think from the 40's or 50's.  If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.  Here is what it looks like, I would put pictures of the bottom bit, but Mom has my camera with her.

6  Christmas Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by MaryQcumberfairy on: January 17, 2008 04:17:13 PM
Here is the blanket I crocheted for my boyfriend for Christmas.  I am pretty proud of it because its the first thing I made without just making it up. It took me a while to make because he kept coming over everytime I was going to work on it and I had never made something so big.  Luckily my grandmother is nextdoor so I could run over for help.  But enough of this talk, on to the pictures!!


My granny square.


The full blanket!  His favorite color is green, so...


I put it on him to show the size, but he was on the phone and had no idea what I was taking his picture for. So, he kind of ignored my insane picture taking.  Smiley

Well, anyway, there it is, I hope you liked it!

7  My first project (and attempt at sewing) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MaryQcumberfairy on: January 03, 2008 02:28:56 PM
Okay, I'm not sure how to put pictures on here and I have only posted 5 times so I can't put them right on here but wanted to finally share some from the scarf I made for my boyfriend.  It was my first time sewing, and I did it by hand.  It ended up being two different fleece colors since the black wasn't long enough for a scarf and I wasn't sure if he would like the maroon-ish color.  He ended up loving the scarf and said the two layers make it extra warm!  Its really exciting to see him wearing it all the time. So, without further ado, my attempt at sewing:


The end result

His name came out kind of funny looking, but it was my first try.

In progress shot, before I sewed it together.

Well, I really hope this worked and that you all like it!
Comments and words of advice are appreciated!!
