491  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Stenciled "Wicked" Ipod cozy on: December 03, 2009 03:21:54 PM
I desided to try stenciling again and so I whipped up a standard Ipod sock thingie and went searching for images... when I couldnt find what I wanted I hand drew a Witchs hat and this is what resulted
Sorry the pic is blurry

What do you think? I know theres some things that arent as neat as i would like (i.e the sloppy bow on the hat and the white highlights dont look quite right ) but I dont mind too much.I LUV WICKED!!!!
now I have to go and figure out how to heat set this....

Thanks! only now Im not too sure what to do with that knowledge...Im thinking if I could get my mits on some real fabric paint Id like to try putting something on a pair of fingerless gloves or an ipod nano cozy. Also if your going to try this Id really recomend fabric paint cause the craft paint and fabric medium mixture is a lil stiff and Im not sure it would be good for a wearable piece but the fabric paint is pretty flexable and rubbery so it might work.

Hello everyone!
heres the deal Iv been trying to make a stenciled t-shirt useing contact paper....Well
tonight I got A thought. what if I stenciled a simple image on crochet so I grabed a swatch of single crochet, drew a note, cut it out,searched for fabric paint and found nothing but our nosey cat. that stopped me in my tracks till I remembered I have craft paint and textile medium (happy dance) Anyway I tryed it and Im happy with the results except next time Ill take my time and make sure I get the paint in all the
crevices ( you can see a tiny bit of the purple showing if you get close )
If any one has tried this before I havent seen it so let me know if youve heard of it
Heck let me know what you think period!



Omg I feel like a moron,, LOL I finally figured out how to put full size pics on here Yipee!

Sorry I didn't give any details about the hide the mouse game. basically its were someone hides the mouse and whoever finds it gets a prize and then that person gets to hide it for the next round...so I saw this Lil mouse and thought it would be a good size. I thinks its pretty simple and great for that awkward time after dinner and before presents

Thanks!!!
I have family members of all sizes and I thought makeing it adjustable would be a good idea. and the buttons I wish I could find them a wal-mart again. it seems every time I find something I like there they quit carrying it.

Really cute! why didnt I think of embroidering on crochet? LOL
I think more flowers would be a great addition, especially as a grouping of 3 or 5 (gotta love those odd #s)

How Cute!! it would be perfect for kids to play hide the mouse!!
498  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / simple beans cowl (modified slightly) on: November 19, 2009 06:13:02 PM
I wanted a gift that was easy to make and fast because I have a large yarn stash and like 10 aunts and cousins to make for soooo...I found this pattern from simple beans and though I didn't have the right yarn I did have some lion brand jiff and quick I had just bought and Away I went. I followed the pattern exactly except when it came to sewing the ends together, I like the idea of adjustable things whenever possible so I made a single crochet rectangle that I sewed to the end and added buttons to so that they would fit between any of the trdc on the cowl. it can still be twisted to give the original look.

Iv borrowed that book from the library several times and I love the patterns. I used the monkey pattern to make a green and pink ballerina monkey ( free handed a skirt and sewed it on) for my friends 4yr old . and Iv made 2 elephants the funny thing was my 82yr old grandpa liked the raspberry pink one (he usualy doesnt pay attention to my projects) I made for a baby shower gift so I made him a light gray one with a red bow tie it was too cute  Grin
