1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Plushie makers, where did you start? on: September 19, 2008 10:00:23 PM
I have been obsessing over all the plushie monsters, animals, random items turned into cute characters, and all the other handmade oddly cute stuffed creatures.  I want to make some but don't know where or how I should start so I thought I would take to the forums and see if I could get some guidance.  Where did you start? How did you come up with ideas? And what advice could you toss my way? Thanks for the help Cheesy

2  COOKING / Dessert / Fingerspelled ASL cookies on: March 09, 2008 08:58:21 PM
My daughter was born deaf and I signed with her since finding out.  Since then she has received cochlear implants, but anyway, my mom is in her 3rd semester of ASL (American Sign Language) and has been obsessed lately. We found a hand cookie cutter and started talking about making signing cookies so she finger spelled my daughter's name. Thanks for looking!!

3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Alternate FBB handles? on: March 03, 2008 11:39:57 PM
I have been looking at the FBB pattern, but I can't find any purse handles locally and I remember seeing a bag somewhere with crocheted handles.  I was wondering what are some of the other handles or ways to make one for this bag? Thanks!! Grin
4  COOKING / Dessert / Spongebob and Mickey Cakes on: March 03, 2008 09:50:24 AM
My daughter is turning 4 today and she requested a Mickey mouse cake.  I wanted to make a cake for school too so I did a Spongebob cupcake cake. Unfortunately the school can't have home made cakes but he still turned out good ( I think anyway)



5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Kitty Cat hat on: January 06, 2008 11:15:42 AM
Ever since my first successful ear flap hat my three year old has been asking for a hat, she hates hats when she was a baby we used to strap hats on her to keep on her hearing aides, which didn't work, but if she insists! So I showed her one with cat ears and she was sold. Well here is the finish product, modeled by my daughter Riley, she's a ham or a goof lol



and then I made one for our friends kid

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Berry Bear on: January 04, 2008 03:14:18 PM
This guy started off from the pattern by Rheatheylia for his head and ears, but I wanted a pot-bellied bear and just winged it and the rest of him. I am not good at finishing stuff and I am half tempted to leave the eyes off my stuff but I had some buttons so he got some eyes.  I thought he came out pretty good and my dog thinks he is cute enough to eat  hehe  Cheesy Thanks for checking him out!



7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chunky ear flappin hat on: January 04, 2008 02:55:27 PM
Thanks to hheever I was able to make my first ear flap hat with chunky chubber stitches! I usually stitch too tight and end up taking 2 weeks to finish something, but I got a bigger hook and with help from hheever I was able to crank this hat out in about an hour give or take cuz my daughter can't stand to not be involved! But its okay I'll put her to work next time hehe Anyway here it is, thanks heever  Cheesy

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What's your favorite hook? on: January 03, 2008 03:11:54 PM
I know that you use different hooks for different projects depending on the size, but what is the one hook that you gravitate towards, sometimes without thinking? Just curious to see what you all say.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Chunky stiches on: January 03, 2008 09:17:22 AM
I have been looking around and I see a lot of cool projects that have a chunky look to them and I have no idea how to get that look. I crochet tight, but I don't think that is it.  For example the hat that I am dying to try is the peppermint hat by hheever. If anyone has some advice please let me know. I am sure it has to do with a bigger hook, but what is a good size to get a tight chunky look?

thanks
