2  Christmas-themed cozies in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: July 04, 2016 05:07:20 PM
Going to a "Christmas in July" craft show in a couple of weeks - thought I should make some Christmas-themed items.

Snowman:


And Santa!


Comments and constructive criticism welcome. I just kind of winged both of these  - wasn't sure how to add much to the santa, and I think that I will make the scarf thinner on the next snowman . . .

Any thoughts on other Christmas-themed cozies I can attempt? I thought maybe a Rudolph one - his face, with a big red nose in the middle? Not sure about the antlers . . . and then a green one with different colored circles on it?? Not sure. It's kind of fun to experiment, though!

So I have been experimenting with making cozies for cans (trying to make one for a bottle, but I keep making them too wide!)

Here is my kitty cozy!

4  Two new purses - Dandelions and Hearts, Butterflies and Flowers! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Padester on: June 27, 2016 06:47:45 PM
Just finished a couple of new bags in a pattern I have used before and really liked. It is called the "Phoebe" bag, but at the moment I can't remember what site it came from - pretty sure it was free . . . Brain is on vacation, though - I'll look it up later if anyone is interested.

These bags are bigger than the original pattern, though I don't remember how much I blew it up. I also make the straps longer than the pattern calls for and use a magnetic snap on the inside of the bag rather than the closure flap that it calls for.

Dandelions (I LOVE this one - love the fabric and the gorgeous blue lining!):




And this one - flowers, hearts and butterflies! This was made to order for someone who prefers oranges and yellows to that lovely blue:

5  Dr. Who cooler bag . . . with Minions! :D in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Padester on: June 20, 2016 03:56:24 PM
Hi all!

So - as a reward for spending multiple thousands of dollars financing our home through this bank, we got a lovely cooler bag. <Massive fanfare and applause!>

It was actually a very useful size for a cooler bag, and we have used it to death over the last 5 or so years.

The outside of the original doesn't look bad, but the inside was all ripped up and nasty. So I decided to make a replacement - here it is!



Dr. Who is totally awesome, whether with a bow tie or a fez or anything else, so I HAD to use some of my Whovian fabric on this project!

Here are some shots to compare the old and the new - I think I got the sizing pretty much spot-on (Sorry for the blurry pics)!





And - because one pop-culture reference is insufficient - MINIONS!  Grin



Thanks as always for looking!

6  Skully Scarf! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: June 07, 2016 06:59:54 PM
Hi all!

So I found this fab pattern on Ravelry.com - FREE!
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/narrow-crochet-skull-scarf

It's really easy-peasy and works up really quick.

Here's a pic of half of my skully scarf - I can take more pics of the whole thing, but this is all I have for now:

As always, thanks for looking!  Cheesy

7  Crocheted Owl Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Padester on: May 14, 2016 05:49:39 AM
Howdy!

I have recently taught  myself to crochet, and have been having fun making these crocheted owls:



Those two went into making this purse:

Sorry - best picture I have of the bag so far . . .

Have also made these guys:
Donated this one to a silent auction at my daughter's elementary school


These last two are in process of becoming another bag - need to do the handle and line it:




  I am really enjoying crochet - who knew?! Smiley

8  Owls! Hoot! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: May 07, 2016 08:26:57 AM
Hi all!

So I am really into the crochet thing now - here are some owls I made. A couple have been turned into a purse (haven't taken pics of that yet), and a couple will be either wall-hangings or hot pads - donating them to a silent auction, so I guess the people getting them can decide!

Here is the first one I made - it's supposed to be octagonal, but that didn't quite come through on this first one:


Better octagon with the second:


And the third:


The second and third are the ones I made the bag out of. Here's the fourth, which I am donating along with the first:

This one doesn't have plastic eyes, so can work for a hot pad if desired.

I've already made another that I haven't photographed - going to make another purse! I got the pattern here: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1140210649. Haven't gotten around to making the full tote yet - maybe I will at some point, but would need a lot more of the main color than I currently have, so am holding off for now.

Group shot:


Thanks for looking!

9  Three "virus" shawls in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: May 06, 2016 08:00:43 AM
This was the first patterned crochet project I tried - the "virus" shawl - horrible name for a lovely shawl! I found the free pattern on Ravelry, but it is all over the internet!

I made one for myself first, which is a bit wonky and I don't have picture of it (yet - will remedy that soon!), but here are the next three I made:

Being worn:


Mercerized cotton:


Cream colored wool:


And my favorite - variegated pink and green - the yarn is a combination of silk, cotton and some percentage of man-made fibers. It is SOOOO soft and pretty!


Thanks for looking!  Smiley

10  Little drawstring bags! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: May 06, 2016 07:54:23 AM
Hi all!

I've been making these cute little crocheted drawstring bags recently. I think I found the pattern on Ravelry - not sure, but it was a free pattern that I found somewhere! Easy peasy!  Grin

First three out of regular cotton yarn:


And two more with mercerized cotton and ceram-colored wool:


And then a pic of all of them opened up:


Thanks for looking!
