11  Lace Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by gleangenie on: December 03, 2010 08:49:40 AM
This is a very simple lace pattern that utilizes the lover's knot crochet stitch. I really like lace in knitting and wanted to do something lacy in crochet without using a giant hook. I like the results.



What do you think?

Thanks for looking!

12  Crochet grid scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by gleangenie on: December 03, 2010 08:44:56 AM
A long while ago I made this grid scarf.



It's a heavily modified version of Rachel Choi's Spider Web Scarf found at Crochet Spot. I used Red Heart Eco Ways Bamboo Wool and absolutely love the feel and drape of it.



My thanks to Lucy for modeling my work. Smiley

Thanks to all of you for looking!

13  Baby moccasins galore! in Crochet: Completed Projects by gleangenie on: December 02, 2010 10:20:44 AM
I've been making a lot of these moccasins lately.



They're a great way to use up the remains of skeins as well as make a dent in my out-of-control button collection.



Plus they kind of look like cute little faces. Or at least I think so.



I purchased the pattern from Mon Petit Violon at Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/monpetitviolon?ref=top_trail

14  Newborn rainbow baby set in Crochet: Completed Projects by gleangenie on: December 02, 2010 10:10:01 AM
I just love Mon Petit Violon's crochet and knitting patterns. Her designs are simple, clean and lovely. I recently purchased a few of her patterns from Etsy and have been busy making them. The hat pictured in this set is her Baby Swirl Hat, found here at her shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/monpetitviolon?ref=top_trail



I also made a simple bib (without a pattern) to accompany the hat.



I welcome your comments and feedback. Many thanks!

15  First time increasing and decreasing in Crochet: Completed Projects by gleangenie on: June 19, 2008 12:57:45 PM
This is my very first attempt at increasing and decreasing. It's a purse pattern by Chloe Nightingale from crochetme.com. I followed the pattern very carefully, but I still made a mistake somewhere, because the shaping on the bottom of the bag is asymmetrical. Still, I'm proud of it, and pretty happy with the way it turned out overall. I welcome any comments on how I might have avoided the funny-shaped bag bottom, though.

Here is the whole purse:



Here is a close-up of the strap detail:



Here is a shot that shows the bottom shaping:



Thanks for taking a peek!

16  First Bootie Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by gleangenie on: June 18, 2008 02:18:50 PM
Last weekend I found a couple of pairs of pants in a yard sale free box and, since the price was right, I couldn't turn down the chance to try a bootie bag. Here is my first attempt.







All feedback welcome! Thanks for looking!

17  Summer sling bag and fabric bucket in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gleangenie on: June 11, 2008 05:56:19 PM
I'm trying to get the hang of this sewing thing, and I so I've been making a lot of simple, practice projects lately, just to increase my comfort. I'm actually trying to make a pair of pants with a zipper, but things are going at a snail's pace, so it may be a while before I post them. But I digress...

Here is a sling purse I threw together out of some scraps I inherited from my aunt.



And here's a fabric bag/bucket I made out of upholstery scraps and an old sheet.



It's perfect for storing fruit on my kitchen counter!



Here it is from the side:

18  Grocery Bag from Upholstery Samples in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by gleangenie on: May 10, 2008 02:48:43 PM
I just finished throwing this bag together for my grandmother to use when she's shopping. It's not lined (I haven't really figured out how to do that yet!), but I kinda like it. I used upholstery scraps someone gave me. What do you think?



This is the bottom of the bag.

19  Patchwork scrap carryall in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by gleangenie on: May 05, 2008 11:25:26 AM
I have been working on this bag off and on for a few weeks now. It's made from lots of different scraps, some of them re-purposed. It also uses empty thread spools as strap connectors. I only started sewing earlier this year, so it's a pretty simple construction. What do y'all think?





This is the back:



Thank you for taking a look!

20  Crochet Throw in Crochet: Completed Projects by gleangenie on: May 05, 2008 11:19:48 AM
This is the first time I've used the backward single-crochet stitch to make a border. That'll take a while to get used to! I made this for my mother in-law for Mother's Day, out of some free yarn someone gave me. The inspiration for this came from a pattern by Vera Hannaford. Thanks for looking!
