1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / test of patience and a buttload of plaid (pic heavy!) on: July 29, 2009 11:57:05 AM
So a couple months ago I saw this old sweatshirt on my friend's couch--asked him if I could have it and he said sure.  Finally got around to making something of it in the last few days.  I originally meant to make it into a hoodie and based what I did off this lovely tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100217.0.  Wound up turning out quite differently (no hood, etc.) but I really like it and am quite proud of it--this was my first major clothing project ever and while there's definitely things I'd do differently next time, all in all I'm pretty pleased.  Thanks for looking!  Comments and constructive criticism welcome!

After!


(apologies for the blurriness)


the collar is probably my favorite thing, also pretty happy with the way the zipper turned out cause i'd never done one before





Thanks again for looking!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / first project post, a bit pic heavy? on: February 14, 2009 02:41:46 PM
Here are a few things I've recently made:





I made this baby blanket for my nephew-to-be (any day now!).  It's definitely the most complicated thing I've made thus far and while there are things I could improve upon if I made another, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.  The pattern I used can be found here:

I used Lily Sugar n Cream instead of the Red Heart Baby (I just like cotton yarn better, and I feel like natural fibers are better for babies--just my opinion though).





I made this case for carrying random stuff in my purse like makeup brushes and stuff.  Didn't use a pattern--just hdc'd until I had a rectangle the size I wanted (my case is 24 hdc/row, which worked out to about 8 1/2 inches finished), added sides for depth (4-5 hdc/row), then sewed on a button.  Might make another in single crochet for my drawing pencils and pens that I carry around.

Suggestions and critique welcome--thank you for looking!
