It all looks fabulous! I a leetle obsessed with your teapot cushion, and those hoops are just the cutest idea ever!

Thanks guys!

To yzag, trust me, if you wanted to start sewing garments, this is probably one of the easiest ways to start. It's almost literally cutting and sewing a T-shape. Perhaps someday I'll move on to more complex things, but for now this is the extent of my skill! Smiley

I am so excited! This is the first garment I have ever made from scratch (that is wearable...)! Much thanks to chewynoodles and her simple tutorial.

I made this shirt with some bright (bright, bright) blue jersey. I was worried about the wearability of this color (not a huge problem, it turns out), which was why I chose it for my first attempt at this project. Now that I've seen how awesome-cool it is, I'm ready to use some of the prettier fabrics I have in my stash.



You can see detail shots of the neckline and sleeves, which I did differently than chewynoodles did, on my blog.

Next on the agenda: redo with prettier fabric, MUCH wider neckline, and cuffs on the sleeves...I like that look a lot better.

Thanks for looking!

That last black necklace is just too cool.

I always loved the poodle; remember how there would be a little bubble at the very end of the balloon for its foofy tail? Just adorable.

Haha, you see what I did there? It's a pun!

Anyways, I'm not sure if this really qualifies as being post-worthy, after seeing the amazing work done on this board, but I just love it so much I had to share.

I've seen these necklaces around the internet in many places, and being Chinese, of course I happened to have one randomly dangling off my blinds from my high school, trinket-obsessed days. Simplest necklace ever, since it already has a gigantic jump ring ready for use. Just string onto a chain! I hope to see a lot more of these around, because they're just too cute.





You can see more here on my blog. Thanks for looking!

Hello! These are some of the first things I've done with my first sewing machine, and I'm pretty proud. It was also a learning experience, since I made a fair number of mistakes, but I am happy with my results.







Obviously, the last two were made using the same fabric. I picked up this awesome cotton pique print on clearance at Hancock Fabrics (I've seen at least one other Craftster user use this fabric), and used black fleece for the lining. I used a home decor remnant for the sewing machine case.

Want to see more pictures and learn how I made these? I talk about it here on my blog. And how do you like the shameless plugging? Grin

Thanks for looking!
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / mp3 Case on: February 21, 2011 12:38:11 PM
Hello there! So raise your hands if you have a habit of treating your electronics...with tough love? Well, it has probably already occurred to you then that your doodads need protection from you! This thought occurred to me three years ago when I first bought my mp3 player, especially because it used a touch interface. It only took three years for me to get around to it.  Roll Eyes

Once I actually did it, it worked up in a single afternoon. Make a chain, crochet into both sides of the chain, and start your rounds, alternating two rounds of sc with one round of dc. I added the button strap mostly to secure my earbuds, since the case itself is a secure fit.





I love it! The yarn is something I purchased from China. There's a very small amount of it so I've been trying to figure out what to do with it. I used an E hook to make sure it's tight, but dang, using needles like that is hard on the hands, how do people crochet with thread without getting carpal tunnel within the hour???

Anyways, thanks for looking! You can check this out on my blog, too, along with a bunch of other things I've sewn and crocheted. Wink Just sayin'.

I love this idea! If I were to change anything, I would sew some buttons along one edge of the t-shirt to complete the cardigan illusion. So cute!
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pretty stitch pattern for a pretty shawl on: February 07, 2011 05:06:20 PM
So a while back I posted about the shawl I made my mom for Christmas, and I've finally had the chance to write up the stitch pattern! Here's the finished product:



And you can see the pattern on my blog. It's written quite complicated-ly (lol, is that a word?) so please let me know if there is a mistake or too confusing to bother with, and I will try rectifying it. Thanks for looking!
