1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bubble Bobble lapghan on: April 01, 2012 06:53:45 PM
It took me about three weeks to complete this for my hubbin. Its from the NES game Bubble Bobble which he and I both enjoy a lot.

 I am absolutely ecstatic about the way it turned out. It is slightly lopsided (in my opinion), but that gives it that hand-made feel. It is also larger than it appears in the photo. It is about 4ft x 4ft.

C&C appreciated, as always!

I am so absolutely thrilled the way these turned out.

Sculpy and acrylic and a love of Star Wars =


They actually are a lot more polished now that I've given them a second coat of paint, but I couldn't wait to show them off!

C/C Appreciated.

EDITED: Much better photo.

Hi all!

I'm looking for information on mapping a crochet pattern. I want to make a scarf with the outline of WV on it, and I know its going to be difficult due to all the bumps and curves, but I have no idea where to begin to simplify it for myself.

Does anyone have any advice?

Oh, here is the image I am working with.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Franken-pants (Little Image Obese) on: February 19, 2010 05:09:02 PM
I found an old pair of sleeping pants that I never finished and since I am on a yoga kick right now I altered them slightly and came up with:


Close-up of the fabric and the optional pockets:

And I know this belongs in reconstructed, but I really don't want to make a new post; using TkRainy's tute herehttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299282.0, I carved up an old WV Lottery T-shirt and made the unexpectedly comfy:

The random fabric waistband:

I would appreciate any feedback, as this is my first SUCCESSFUL attempt at any kind of bottom!

Out of boredom and a surplus of Red Heart Super Saver comes:

Monsieur Octopus, my very first ami!

I love him, even though he only has four legs:

All single crochet with adorable black button eyes.

Would love to hear what you all think at my first crochet stuffie attempt!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Many stitches, a few colors...comfiest scarf! on: January 31, 2010 06:07:57 PM
Me avoiding homework=

I used single, double, half double, front and back-post double crochet, Caron and Homespun yarn in grey, blue, and dark blue.

Very soft and VERY comfy, and my boyfriend's mother loves it!
C&C appreciated!

Got bored this evening waiting for my boyfriend to get home from work, so I got out the ole Sculpy and made some charms Smiley

Mini piano:


I call this guy Ferigno.
I forgot to make him a hole for the string, so I am planning on making him either a pin or a magnet:

A necklace made for my boyfriend, it means "Knowledge":

They aren't great, since I just made them out of boredom, but I like them!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first (set of) mittens! on: November 21, 2009 11:54:56 PM
I always have a problem with mittens. I make one...and then lose interest. I have at least 4 separate mittens laying around my room with no mates. So while my boyfriend and his brother were sitting around playing video games, I made these, using this pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=325086.0

The color is way off in the pics. They are actually maroon and white:

The thumbs are horribly misshapen, and a little tight, but I love them anyways.

They fit my hand oh so perfectly!

Enjoy, and comments are always lovely.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slouchy hat and chain scarf on: November 17, 2009 01:02:42 PM
I am enrolling in crochet-aholics.

An awesome slouchy hat based on thishttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328064.0 pattern, omitting the "lacey"-ness. And I have to say THANK YOU to AprilDraven for the end of that pattern, I have been trying to figure out how to do trim like that for AGES.

This could be my most favorite creation to date.

Front view:


Wearing it around campus, wind in mah hair!:

A chain scarf, based on Nomsa's idea here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292580.0

VERY warm.

I apologize for the horrid look on my face in this one, but its a much better angle.

Comments and criticism appreciated, as always.
