1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Searching for a deer applique on: August 08, 2010 04:31:04 PM
I'm currently working on crocheting a blanket and matching pillows for my dorm. I've been inspired by forest imagery and mori girl lately, so I'm looking for a deer applique to use as an accent for a pillow. I haven't been able to find one, though, and I was wondering if someone has a link that I've missed somehow?

This squirrel applique is similar to what I'm looking for. http://www.crochetmemories.com/archive/seasonal6.html

Thanks for looking!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help needed drafting a pattern for lace wrist cuff on: March 27, 2010 09:57:08 AM
I'm looking to make something like this:

I'm having difficulty drafting a pattern, though. At first I thought I need to use crochet thread, but now I feel like that would be too small, so I'm thinking of moving up to a baby yarn. I've figured out that they used a shell stitch, what I think is a double crochet for the "mesh" looking part, and single crocheted around the entire thing. Any other ideas? Any help would be appreciated.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Luna Lovegood's Jacket on: July 21, 2009 10:27:45 PM
I love Luna's jacket in the new Harry Potter movie, and I was hoping to recreate it (or at least find something similar). The only problem is that I have no idea what material is used! It looks like it was knitted or crocheted, possibly? Or someone took a shag carpet and cut it up? I honestly don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Image difficulties on: January 11, 2009 09:19:22 PM
A long time ago I bought my then-boyfriend a Scarlet Begonias t-shirt (Grateful Dead ftw!). After we broke up we lost touch, and in recent conversations I found out that he wore the shirt to tatters and eventually framed it and hung it up. I'd like him to have something a little nicer than a grody old shirt to display in his new place, so I decided that an embroidery based on the shirt would be a cute idea.

The problem? This is the largest image of the shirt I can find:

Do you think I should keep rabidly googling until I find something better? Or should I attempt to redraw the girl? (The girl and the text are all that I'm doing.) That seems to be a simple solution, but I have the art skills of a 5 year old that can't hold a crayon.

Unrelated question: how do you separate strands of floss without making a huge tangled mess? I'm so terrible at this that I always end up using six strands.

Thanks in advance!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Dumbledore Gnome on: December 31, 2008 01:06:54 PM
I decided that I was going to make a gnome! Yay gnomes!

Sadly, he came out looking like Dumbledore. I love Dumbles, but that wasn't what I was going for. How can I make him less Dumble and more gnome?

Sorry for the shoddy webcam pic.

Happy New Years Eve!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Please help me find this hat! on: December 28, 2008 11:22:18 AM
A while ago I saw this post with this girl who made a slouchy hat out of sweaters. She made one for her friend that stuck straight out like an elf, and had to use a "looser" sweater. Does anyone recall this post? I've searched all over and haven't been able to find it.  Cry
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Baby Slouchy Hat? on: December 27, 2008 08:05:52 PM
My family thinks I hung the moon when it comes to crafting. It's nice, but sometimes they expect me to be able to do ANYTHING easily. My aunt was so impressed with a fleece hat that I made for her baby girl, that she asked if I could crochet her daughter a slouchy hat.
I started crocheting literally four days ago.

Anyways, I haven't been able to find any patterns for a baby slouchy hat, and I don't really know how to adapt an adult sized pattern for a baby.
Help please?
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / To Fill or Not to Fill... on: November 10, 2008 03:09:20 PM
I've been working on an embroidery piece for the last month based on this stencil:

(I have a thing for stencils, I guess.)

My original intention was to simply follow the outlines and not fill it in, but I've started filling a leaf or two with a dark green color.

Question: Should I use a different color on the flowers? They've already been outlined in dark green.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Suggestive Harry Potter Swap on: November 02, 2008 02:45:08 PM
I wouldn't be able to organize or participate, but I think a sexually suggestive Potter swap would be a ton of fun.

I got the idea from this post:

I would suggest an R rating and a minimum age of 17 to enter.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Printer Ink on Embroidery? on: November 01, 2008 05:10:46 PM
My paper got wet and the ink seeped through onto the fabric, making it look dirty. Can I wash it? Should I use a bleach pen?
