I like how this turned out, my top stitching was a little wonky in one of the corners, but all in all I like it. This came from one of the stacks of fat quarters I got on clearance at michaels. Next time I'll make a bigger wallet...I would have added a zippered coin pouch...but no zipper. I also need to press it haha.
Well, found some fat quarters on clearance at michaels, so I took the opportunity...I mean really? 10 fat quarters for 3 bucks? deal. I made a tufted throw pillow, our living room is mostly white beige khaki and brown, so I thought a punch of blue would do justice to my leather chair.
I know it's not much but I love the print, and the way it warps in the center.
I really like how this one turned out. I found some fat quarters at michaels for 1.49 a 5 pack. This purse used 2 fat quarters & some interfacing. I'm going to add something to close it up. when I was adding the handles my needle bent so I had to hand stitch them. I'm not a great sewer by any means but I have about 7 more FQs to play with.
I didn't have enough of one pattern of fabric for a handle, so I did a patchwork kind of handle for it.
I really like how this turned out, I modified the Danger Craft's monster chunk pattern & made a bombomb, I CO 42 stitches just to make him a little bigger, he stands about 4 inches in height. I'm new to knitting so I wasn't sure how to knit oval eyes, so I crochet that. I made i-cord for his wind up key & whip stitched his feet to the body. I also used a large button to anchor his wick into his body. C&C is always appreciated!
It started out as becoming a crocheted granny version of the Ishi knit garter bag (22 squares, rounded big) The inspiration came from the Inga granny bag a lot of you have been making, as you might know the Inga calls for 16 squares, well I ran out of yarn & got pretty much the opposite of my goal, but I love it!!!! It's an odd shape but a pretty good size & yes I know i need to weave in the ends. C&C is always nice!!
I just started knitting & I bought my first pair of circular knitting needles because I figured they do the same work as a set of DPNS...Am I wrong? They just are very...intimidating to me. I'm really a crocheter but I love the look of knit amis. I don't like flooding boards
The magic loop method is great...I'm trying the Middle size monster from rupester.blogspot.com I'm only on row 12 but it's turning out great, I left a huge hole in the top on purpose and there aren't any accidental holes in the work.
I made the mistake of getting 16" bamboo circulars but it's getting the job done. In my point of view, If I make things more difficult for myself now, then later on, when I choose the more convenient way to do things, I'll be a lot better at it when I try again.
update I decided every year on my son's birthday I will knit him a monster of some sort, which each year the monster getting more complex. I just need to add some embroidery, arms & legs & the 1year monster is done :]
