My sister is expecting her third little girl in early February and Auntie always makes a blanket for the new arrival. Here's the latest baby blanket for Hailey Rose. Green with elephants on one side, pink with floral on the other, orange bias tape around the edges, orange embroidered 'Hailey'.
I made my boyfriend this cribbage board for Christmas. It's made from bird's eye maple, I sanded and laquered it then drilled the 245 holes with a hand drill. The alinement isn't perfect since I had to do the drilling free hand with a hand drill but I think it turned out pretty decent and the wood is gorgeous
I wanted to make one more thing for my boyfriend for Christmas but I couldn't think of what, but after awhile of roaming around on here I saw a Minecraft creeper plush and decided that was what I had been searching for. It's all crochet except the black face pieces are felt. And this project taught me a very important lesson: it's near impossible to stuff something that is meant to be square, so I should avoid it if possible, haha I think it turned out pretty decent though, I think the boyfriend will love it
These are my first amigurumi projects, four teddy bears. Two are for my nieces (ages 7 & 2) and two are for my boyfriend's little sisters (ages 4 & 3). I put each girl's first initial on the bottom of their bear's foot, but that was after the pictures were taken. I'm hoping having initials and different colors will keep the tots from fighting over them
Hey all! My brother-in-law's birthday is in a couple weeks so I etched these pint glasses for him. He works as a logger and spends a lot of his free time hunting and fishing. I picked designs that match his interests, I wasn't exactly going for a PNW theme, but we live in Oregon and when I look at the glasses I just think "Pacific Northwest", so that's what I'm calling them, lol.
When the idea for these pint glasses came into my mind I was so excited! I'd never etched glass before so I was a bit nervous but I love trying new crafts/techniques. I used sticky backed vinyl, armour etch, and I cut the stencils out by hand with an x-acto knife. I loosely followed this tutorial: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2010/06/glass-etching.html
Elk, Salmon, Tree, Deer:
Thanks for looking! Any advice/suggestions for future projects is welcome, I bought 2 dozen pint glasses because it was cheaper per cup that way, so I have a lot of cups to try different stuff on!
I made these shirts for my friend Maggie and I. This is a picture of mine, her's turned out a lot cleaner but alas it is already in the mail, therefore I can't take a picture. I used purple paint on a black v neck tee.
And yes this is in reference to Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World.
My friend's wife is having a baby in about two weeks so I made her a baby blanket and some baby mittens. I did the whole blanket in rounds (except the very center), though I'm assuming it'd be more usual to make squares and stitch them together. Did the blanket come out somewhat wavy because I did it in rounds or did I do something wrong? The blue part is single stitch and the rest is double stitch. Thanks for looking!
Hello all, it's been a while since I've posted but I'm glad to be back!
I just taught myself to crochet (with the help of the internet) last month and these mittens are one of my first projects. I crocheted them for my friend Maggie, her favorite color is purple and she loves mittens. Also, sorry this is the only photo I have, I realized I hadn't taken any photos when I was already at the P.O. so I just took a quick shot with my phone.
I like the way the thumb turned out on the mitten on the right better than the other. When I was reading about how to make thumbs, there were several techniques I came across. I didn't really like any directions I found so I just did my own idea and made them in rounds and decreased when the thumb was long enough until it closed off. Any ideas/pointers on crocheting thumbs from seasoned crocheters?
I find it mildly entertaining that I haven't posted my work on here in quite some time and now that I'm posting something, it's in a board I've never posted in before. Any who...
I called my niece up and asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she is turning 4 on April 8th. She told me she wanted a dinosaur cake, a race car, and a doll. So I set out to create her a doll, my first doll. The doll is a bit odd looking but I find her charming and to be not a bad start. Enjoy.
