11  LOTs of baby crochet - hats, cardi and bunny! in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: August 04, 2013 03:56:02 AM
My niece was born yesterday! I made these for her...

The panda hat is from the Beanie Hat pattern from Nikki Trenches book 'Cute and Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes', with added panda features.  For the booties I used this pattern for inspiration http://sensitivesnapdragon.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/boy-clog-slippers-pattern.html but kind of did my own thing!

I made the viking hat from the same pattern, but put an extra round in at the top, to make the top of the hat more pointy instead of flat (so it looked more like a helmet!) then added horns to the side.  I can confirm the baby looked hilarious in this!

The cardigan is also a pattern from the same book, I think called Pocket Trim Cardigan, but I missed off the pocket, and altered the arms, and added flowers!  I've never made any clothing before, so I'm quite pleased with this, even though the button band is a bit funny!

I also made a bunny!

Phew!  I wish I hadn't procrastinated for 9 months, I made all of these in a week!

12  Herbert the Rabbit... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: April 27, 2013 09:31:31 AM
I made Herbert for my friends nephew.  I didn't want to give him to my friend.  My friend doesn't want to give him to her nephew.  I am going to have to make more Herberts!

I made him up as I went along, then added a rainbow tank top, as you do!

13  Granny Stripey Shawl... in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: January 01, 2013 06:39:34 AM
I made this for a Christmas swap, my partner likes capes, so I thought she'd probably appreciate a shawl too and I felt she was an auntmn-ish colour person from her photos, so I came up with this...

It's a basic granny shawl pattern in all sorts of colours from my stash, I used a 6mm hook and DK yarn, so it's not too heavy and it worked up quicker...she liked it..phew!

p.s NOT a good idea to take part in a swap while you're moving house! This made me soo stressed!  I posted it 4 days before Christmas, I'm lucky it got there in time!

14  granny square bag... in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: July 05, 2012 03:07:56 AM
I used up lots of my vintage yarns to make this, it's just standard granny squares in all different colours, 12 on each side, then lined with some flannel and a vintage fabric pocket...

15  big birthday badge in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: May 01, 2012 01:04:40 AM
I made this birthday badge for my mum....

It's a big circle of crochet with a frilly edging...the numbers, spots and backing are made from felt and sewn on and it's about as big as the palm of my hand...

16  Vintage fabric bags... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by susie in the sky on: March 19, 2012 01:12:41 AM
I've been making lots of these, it's just a basic rectangle pattern with a gusset at the bottom, they're made out of my considerable vintage fabric stash (that I have to work through before I have room for any more!)

They're lined with vintage fabric too (this photo is of one inside out so you can see the lining!)  

I'm having issues with the lining actually, I use the same pattern as the bag to cut it out, then check it against the sewn outer before pinning and sewing it up, and no matter what I do the lining is the wrong size once I've sewn it...which then, as I sew the two together, makes a fold in the outside of the bag or in the lining....does anyone know how to stop this happening?  I can't work it out!

17  Easter bunny brooches in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: March 16, 2012 03:11:59 PM
I made these bunny brooches for Easter, they're the same basic pattern as some crochet owl's I make, but with long bunny ears instead of pointy owl ears, you basically do a couple of rounds of crochet to make the body, then slip stitch around the edge of your circle for a couple of stitches, then chain 4, do a single crochet into the 2nd ch from the hook, then the next 2 chs, and join back to the body...repeat for the other ear!
(does that make sense, I can never describe crochet properly!)
 I added vintage fabric tummies and hand embroidered faces.

I also made another flock of owls! Twit Twoo!

18  Granny stripe bags... in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: March 10, 2012 03:17:05 PM
I made these bags from stripey granny square stitch in the round then sewed up the bottom, added a lining and handles...I love the rainbow one, I took it to a craft fair today but it didn't sell, so I think I might keep it for myself!

19  granny stripe tea light holders... in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: February 21, 2012 01:24:49 PM
I picked up a couple of tiny glasses in the charity shop this morning for 10p each with the idea of crocheting round them...this is what came out!  They're done in the granny stripe stitch (which I first saw on attic 24 and then worked out for myself) in the round using vintage or charity shop yarns and a 3mm crochet hook...I think they're soo pretty!

20  little owl brooches with vintage fabric tummies... in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: January 31, 2012 07:36:20 AM
I've just finished making loads of these...

They're just a couple of rounds of crochet with some ears added (I found a pattern online that helped me work out how to do the ears, but I can't find the link now...basically you finish the 2nd round, do a slip stitch, do 1 dc+2chs+1dc into the next st, slp st around 3 or 4 more sts, then repeat the 1dc+2chs+1dc and finish off)

Then I added vintage fabric tummies using bondaweb iron on sticky stuff, and hand sewed eyes and a beak on each.  They're lined with felt on the back too!

Twit twoo!! C&C welcome Smiley x
