1  Tiny Yarn Lemur in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by EvelynnFox on: November 14, 2009 11:12:03 AM
Have you all seen the book Tiny Yarn Animals by Tamie Snow? I can't recommend it enough. Here's the lemur I made from the book. I've also made the lamb and the pig. Every pattern is easy and the animals really do turn out tiny and so cute!









The eyes on this little guy are bigger than what the pattern called for, because I couldn't find the proper size in my town. What a face!

I'll be making most of the other tiny animals in the book as Christmas gifts for all the little people my life.

2  Baby hats: Knit and crochet combos in Knitting: Completed Projects by EvelynnFox on: August 03, 2009 01:10:48 PM
This red hat is my first knitted project. I was so excited to finish it! It was simply knitted in the round beginning with 68 stitches on size 5.0 needles...the kind that are connected with a plastic cord.

The excitement faded when I realized I had finished it off too soon, though--I just knew that the little thing would be slipping off a baby's head all the time. So I crocheted the brown ribbed brim right onto the bottom of the hat, and I love how it turned out. Save!



I knitted the next baby hat taller, so it is all one piece. Instead of a puff on top, I crocheted a little ball, stuffed it with polyfil, and sewed it on very securely. I love how the variegated yarn pooled into these swirls of color. It reminds me of a soft-serve cone!

3  Fun and Easy Legwarmers (from a free pattern) in Crochet: Completed Projects by EvelynnFox on: July 21, 2009 09:07:42 AM
These are my latest crochet project. My daughter has wanted legwarmers since she saw me wearing them in an old (think 1989) photo. So we're bringing this sassy look back to her elementary school. Think the trend will take hold?! (She also has requested stirrup pants!)

Anyway, the pattern is free from the Lion Brand Yarn website. http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70440AD.html?noImages=

I think you have to register for a free account there to see some of the free patterns, but it is a great site.

Here's how ours turned out (I didn't follow the color changes...just went with what my daughter wanted).

4  T-Shirt Reborn as a tank top (5 pics) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by EvelynnFox on: June 28, 2009 08:01:13 AM
My daughter needed tank tops for this summer, but she has so many t-shirts that closet space was at a premium.

So we took a t-shirt and turned it into a tank-top!

I had never done a recon before, so I had to figure some things out. But anyone with some planning and sewing experience could easily do one of these in under an hour.

Just briefly, I cut off the sleeves including seams, then cut a straight line across the top of the shirt to lose the neckline. Then I flip the whole thing upside down and make a casing for elastic with what used to be the bottom hem of the T.

Then I add some straps, either made from the sleeves I cut off before or from some other scraps. I finish the hem or you could leave it raw...I think most Ts would sort of curl up a little.

Here are the results...






The front of the shirt had stain on it, so I crocheted this black clover and stitched it over to cover it up. (The clover pattern is free from the Lion Brand Yarn site.)



I also covered up the raw bottom hem with binding tape. That was a first for me, and it took forever to fix the screw ups!
