a new use for filet crochet! SCARVES! yessiree, these are not your grandma's doilies. i actually wrote a small article about this for my magazine swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280113.0)

this was my first try... which started out as an experiment, but i liked it so much i ended up finishing it and giving it away for christmas! it's for my math teacher friend... and i do have a 5 and 6 in there... they're just at the top!

caron simply soft in cream, same as my shell-stitch cap!

there's a good article on filet crochet here, if you're interested
http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa050298.htm
and a good pattern directory here
http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/filet_crochet.php

thanks! c&c appreciated!

22  shell stitch cap! *now with pattern* in Crochet: Completed Projects by bunnyrabbit on: November 27, 2008 01:12:53 PM
woot woot! my first hat pattern! i've already had a girl at work ask me to write it out for her, and i've only worn it once!


... and a cloe-up of the stitching


do you think i could add a bill to it? i love hats with bills... just not sure how to do it!
thanks for looking!


okay, so here's my thing - for some reason my friends tell me i crochet kinda tight, so if you're a looser crochet-type person, i'd use a smaller hook

Caron simply soft yarn, 5.0mm hook

to start, ch 4, join w/ sl st
Rnd 1: hdc 6 in ring
Rnd 2: hdc 2 in each st (12)
Rnd 3: *hdc 1 in first st, then hdc 2 in next. Repeat * around (18)
Rnd 4: *hdc 1 in first 2 st, hdc 2 in third. Repeat * around (24)
Rnd 5: *hdc 1 in first 3 st, hdc 2 in fourth. Repeat * around (30)
Rnd 6-7-8: continue increasing (36, 42, 48)
Rnd 9: *sc in first st, skip 2, dc 5 in next, skip 2, sc in next. Repeat * around (shell row)
Rnd 10: *tc in each sc, then dc, hdc, sc, hdc, dc across shell. Repeat * around
Rnd 11: *hdc 1 in first 7 st, hdc 2 in eighth. Repeat * around (54)
Rnd 12-13: increase (60, 66)
Rnd 14: Repeat Rnd 9
Rnd 15: Repeat Rnd 10
Rnd 16: *hdc 1 in first 10, hdc 2 in eleventh. Repeat * around (72)
Rnd 17: hdc 1 in each
Rnd 18: *hdc 1 in first 11, hdc 2 in twelfth. Repeat * around (78)
Rnd 19+: Repeat rnd 9 as needed (i believe i did six rounds of shell stitches). The sc always goes into the top of the shells, and the shells go into the sc
3rd Rnd from end: Repeat rnd 10
Last 2 rows: sc in each (should still have 78 around)

23  Pecan Apple Pie..... yum yum..... in Dessert by bunnyrabbit on: November 27, 2008 01:03:06 PM
so i wanted a twist on traditional pecan pie this year, and i researched some recipes for pecan apple pie, but i wasn't satisfied, so i made up my own!



it actually set up pretty well - the only thing i didn't like was we only had light karo syrup, and it definitely needs dark....

deep dish pie plate
crust (either frozen or make your own)
1 small can apple pie filling
3 eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup pecan halves

prepare crust as directed, preheat oven to 375.
spread a layer of apple pie into the bottom of your crust (we used about 2/3 of the can).
in separate mixing bowl, hand beat eggs, melted butter (wait until it cools or you'll cook your eggs!), sugar, and dark corn syrup. stir in pecans and pour over apples, spreading out evenly over apple pie mix.
bake in preheated oven 40-50 minutes or until *sharp* knife comes out clean.

voila! ... and you thought i made it all from scratch  Wink

24  Re: dad's b-day present in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bunnyrabbit on: June 23, 2008 02:39:18 PM
i made one too! my wal-mart had trays just like that one, and i decided to make one for my guy-friend. i stained it, glued down the caps (took like ten hot-glue sticks) as advised, but sorry to say it didn't really work. i mixed and poured the resin and they started to come unglued! so i sat there with my mask and punched out air bubbles for what seemed like ever.
eventually it turned out ok!



aside from floating caps, i had a MAJOR problem with resin leaking. i had big, newspaper-lined resin tabs on every corner. a combination of whittling, sanding, and re-staining took care of it though.
he loved it! thanks for the idea doe_eyes!!

okay okay! i made one too! the fabric was leftovers from a crochet hook roll i made my friend for her birthday.

i think next time, smaller circles and still more stuffing!


i love the bright colors and now have an obsession with shank buttons....

27  theme n' variations in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by bunnyrabbit on: June 03, 2008 09:59:44 PM
so after making my wonderful wood/ribbon/fishy bracelet from the jar of beads swap, i decided to make one for instantkarma as a thank you and one of my co-workers requested one!!

unfortunately, there were no more wooden beads. so i downgraded my size rings (12mm down to 9), and i found some color variations i think work very well.

instantkarma's in purple with the seahorse. i tried very hard to find an octopus/squid charm but had no luck..


and the one for my co-worker has a pineapple on it!!


whoopee! i love these things, and i keep getting more and more requests for them!
thanks for lookin'!!

p.s. they're NOT pony beads! they're smaller and glass, and i know cuz i busted a few of 'em right in half!

28  trust, hope, love, and a fishy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by bunnyrabbit on: May 30, 2008 10:02:39 AM
so i just finished up with the jar of beads swap (awesome, i must say.... when is round 2?)
and i've already been on a crafting binge with the beads i was sent!!!

this one says trust, hope, and love (just like the subject title!) and was made completely out of the beads i was sent. seriously, only the eye pins and jump rings were mine to begin with!


the bright green thingies are leaves, its kinda supposed to represent new growth, rebirth, whatever.


and on this one, i was sent the wood beads, clasp, and shrinky dink fishy charm. the large rings and ribbon were mine to begin with!


here's a better pictures of the weaving. i seriously adore this bracelet and will make another one in purple as soon as i get the materials.


thanks for looking!!

29  Re: The sparklies for the Jar of Beads swap GALLERY! (send 5/26) in The Swap Gallery by bunnyrabbit on: May 29, 2008 09:42:55 PM
yay! i stole my mom's camera  Wink  so i get to post pictures of my awesome package from instantkarma!
and just to warn you, this reply is gonna be huge!

first, everything together (well, not EVERYTHING... the candy met an early end and my little bro just HAD to have the tiny people, not to mention my cousin spirited away about 1/3 of my beads already!)


and the awesome charms. i love charms.


here's about half the beads; like i said, i'm already fueling my young grasshoppers (cousin's) addiction to beads, and she promptly stole the brown crystals, little orange fellas, and an assortment of odds and ends.


the light green sparklies are leaf beads, and the little brown doughnuts are wood. there were a ton more of those, but they've gone on to new creations! (see below)...

i already made some goodies too!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=248905.msg2761439#msg2761439

but hold on to your panties, ladies, because there's more.
yes, i said there's MORE!  you haven't seen the container it came in, and wait 'til you do cuz you're gonna wist until your fingers fall off!!

*drumroll*

and.....

TADA!!!!!! an AWESOME CUPCAKE container!!!

it even has sprinkles on top!

thank you so much, instantkarma, for being a totally great swapper and making this a wonderful first swap experience!!!

30  how do i finish this?? in Beads: Discussion and Questions by bunnyrabbit on: May 25, 2008 10:17:29 PM
so i made one of those nifty beaded beads from april's bead and button issue, and since i sort of just looked at the instructions at a bead shop (memorized it) without acutally buying the issue, so i don't remember how to finish it.



not bad huh?
