1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Dress issue! on: August 06, 2008 02:17:50 PM
Hi guys!

I've decided to crochet this little missy for my sister, 6 yrs, for x-mas (early, I know), but I'm not sure what to do about the dress. Should I crochet it separately or somehow into/onto the body?

I've only done a few amigurumis before, and I want this to turn out right - so what do you think? Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My new little hat on: April 13, 2008 11:26:39 AM

I made this one yesterday. It's my version of the famous (Swedish?) hat floating around the web.
It's mixed yearns I had stuffed away. The brown is wool, the rest I have no idea what it is.

I just made it up as I went along, if there's someone who'd like some kind of pattern I'm sure I can come up with something. Just remember it was made to fit my huge head. Cheesy
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cozy ww's on: March 31, 2008 12:57:56 PM
So, with being unable to sleep and having some spare yarn lying around I ended up with this:

The upper pic makes it look a bit sqeezed, but that's just because the angle of the photo. The lower one is better size-wise.

They are made from two really soft wool yarns, the pink being from the late 80's, if my mom is to be believed. This was just something I made up as I went along. Nothing too fancy and not too hard. For the lace I had to bring out my crochet needle, something I'm not so very good at. Grin
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Alexander Henry fabric on: February 22, 2008 12:01:34 PM
Hey guys!

I was wondering, since I live in Sweden and have been looking all over the place for Alexander Henry fabrics, do you know any sites that sell them? Would love it if you also knew sites that could ship to Sweden.

I haven't found it in any Swedish store or on any site so far. I'm getting kinda desperate. Cheesy

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage buttons on: February 22, 2008 02:49:33 AM
I'm seriously in love with buttons, so last night I sat down and it ended something like this

and that.

It's just normal fishing wire. I used two threads to keep the buttons steady in place. It's just real simple but I think it turned out pretty okej. Cheesy
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted bangles on: February 18, 2008 03:04:52 AM

As my first post (I've been lurking since yesterday and I already love everything! Cheesy) I thought I'd post some bangles that I made. I'm pretty sure you guys have seen this idea before.

I'm really sorry for the poor last two photos. The light somehow didn't want to work together with me nor the camera so I had to PS them a tiny bit. Roll Eyes
