1  More hats! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: December 03, 2016 05:38:00 PM
So - here are more hats I've been making - I LOVE this yarn - it's called Caron cakes, and it is a variegated yarn that is self-striping. It is great to work with - not amazingly soft, but soft enough and it has a good amount of give to it so it's easy to get the tension correct.

Just going to post a bunch of pictures - hope you like them!

I have another Caron cake in shades of purple and violet - I am looking forward to using that one, too, but am undecided if I want to make these long hats or something else . . . If anyone has a suggestion for something fantastic (and relatively easy) to make from this yarn, please let me know! I'm up for trying something new!  Cheesy

And then here are some hats made with other yarns - this one is just made from cotton yarn

And this is a mix of the Bernat Baby Blanket yarn (the white) and another bulky yarn I got from Amazon - not great to the touch, but I like how it looks:

And finally - because 'tis the season - a double-tailed santa hat!  I found the inspiration for it on this board a while ago, and bought the pattern on Etsy. I just love this hat for the holidays! It's in my Etsy shop at the moment, but I may just claim it for myself in the near future, so I have a fun hat to wear!:

Thanks for looking! I have gotten into crocheting in a big way lately and have been neglecting my sewing . . . will need to get back to that in the near future!  Grin

2  A few odds and ends in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: December 03, 2016 05:24:35 PM
Just posting a few things I've been working on lately that don't fall into an easy category!

Skull bags:

I got the idea for the skulls from this craftster post, which has the skull pattern as well as a link to the flower pattern:

Kitty can koozie!

This one I just winged. It was fun making it a calico pattern! Smiley

Thanks for looking!

3  Crocheted hats and scarves for the winter! (Pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Padester on: December 03, 2016 05:19:34 PM
I have been crocheting bunches of things, but have gotten lazy about posting, so here are several things I've recently made!

Cream hat and scarf - the flower on the hat is actually a pin, so it can come off and be placed elsewhere

Simple Camo hat:

Double-tailed hat in blue and white:

Long blue and white hat:

Long rainbow stocking cap:

Candy-cane hat with red brim and red scarf with candy-cane trim

Red hat with candy-cane trim and candy-cane scarf

All of these other than the camo hat were made from Bernat baby blanket yarn - it is SOOO soft and works up so quickly, I love working with it and love how it came out!

Thanks for looking! Let me know if you have any questions!

5  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.


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!


And Back

(with tail!)  Cheesy

Thanks for looking!!  Smiley

7  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:

Thanks for looking!

8  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!

9  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!

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

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

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
