12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Two unique scarves! on: July 05, 2015 04:58:59 PM
For the sake of trying not to take over this thread, I'm going to include two scarves I've made recently into this one post.  Here goes:

A nifty pencil scarf!

A candy cane scarf-this one took forever to get done!
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Multicolored Crossbody Bag! on: July 05, 2015 04:49:50 PM

I've found that I really enjoy making all kinds of bags, as well as handsewing-for some odd reason??  Anyhow, this is my latest bag creation and I'm really proud of it!

The first photo is of the finished product.  The way I had it planned originally, it was WAY too big, so I made some modifications, and I'm really pleased with plan B.

The second photo is of the beading I put on both the bottom of the flap in the front, and also on the top of the bag on the inside.  I've been beading everything lately as well.   Roll Eyes

The third photo is of the label I sewed inside of it.  hggdm sent me a set of my own labels she made, along with the supplies to make my own, and told me how she did it.  I went crazy and now have a large baggie full of different kinds of labels!

The fourth photo is of the strap for the bag which I love as well.  It's two long chains of the purple and multicolored yarn, and then two long chains of this really colorful novelty yarn I've had sitting around forever that matched the pocketbook exactly.  I braided them together.  Now the strap won't stretch and is really strong.

The fifth photo is of the little ends from the braided handle that I left on each side of the bag.  I wanted to bead some of them, but can't find the big beads that I had.

What do you think?
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fun and Funky Sunglass Case on: June 29, 2015 03:12:21 PM

I couldn't help myself...I don't have enough stash yarn to put together to make a reasonably cohesive looking item, so I had to break down and purchase a skein of yarn!  Roll Eyes

Everything else I had in stash.  Wink

I'm loving the seed beads lately.  I've been putting them on everything!  Cheesy
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scrappy Crocheted Fingerless Gloves on: June 24, 2015 02:51:12 PM

Believe it or not, I STILL have stash yarn to work through!  Roll Eyes Tongue

These are my scrappy crocheted fingerless gloves; made to match the multicolored keyhole scarf I made the other day.

And no....my fingers don't get tired!  Grin
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Not another scarf! :) on: June 24, 2015 02:01:16 PM

It's NOT ANOTHER keyhole scarf this time!   Cheesy  I'm now working my way thru the "shiny", thinner, acrylic yarns that I have and I made this market bag.  It's the first time I've made one in this way, varying rows of regular crocheted stitches with a mesh stitch.  I'm thinking it might make the bag stronger, somewhat.
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / OY! Another keyhole scarf! on: June 22, 2015 07:16:45 AM

I know, I know....another keyhole scarf.

I really seem to enjoy making these lately.  But this one is extra special.  It represents the breast cancer awareness ribbon.  My beloved Grandmother was a breast cancer survivor, so the cause means a lot to me.
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Itty-Bitty Keyhole Scarf! on: June 21, 2015 04:56:43 PM

I'm STILL working with those mini balls of leftover yarn, and here is the second result!  Instead of a LONG keyhole scarf, I made a small neckwarmer.  My aunt made me a pink one years ago, and let me tell you...it really does keep your neck warm!

AMIR...are you looking?  Here's some ideas to use up your yarn! Grin Roll Eyes
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Special Keyhole Scarf! on: June 20, 2015 07:39:02 AM

Alwaysinmyroom has mentioned the mini yarn balls she has several times, that she wants to use up.  Cheesy  I chose all of the mini yarn balls I had that were the same type (weight, etc...) and made this super soft scarf!

The middle of it has a space for you to put the bottom of the other end of the scarf so it lies flat on your chest when you wear it!

I can't stand when I have to bunch up my scarf inside my coat in winter, and this scarf will solve the problem!

What do you think?
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slightly Small Electronics Case on: June 17, 2015 07:22:16 AM
I made this case to hopefully hold the old and new versions of the ipad.  Unfortunately, I made it just a bit too small.  I'm not up on all the new electronics, though, so I'm thinking that there's probably plenty of gadgets that would fit in there.  Roll Eyes  Anyway, here it is:

I'm trying to both work from stash and recycle, so the inside lining is one of my daughter's old t-shirts.  It's sooo soft!
