Hi all, just wondering if anybody would be interested in testing the pattern for one of those little guys (ideally 3 testers, one for each).
In return, obviously you'll have the final pattern, plus a pattern of your choice from chezPlum. send me a PM if you're keen. Ideally I'd like feedback .. this week (I said ideally!!). They're pretty quick to make. And I don't care what kind of yarn you use, just want to find out typos and such stuff if there are any.
sylvie EDITED TO ADD: I've now got 3 testers, thanks all for your help !! As usual, crafsters rock !!
And ... still looking for a name btw, if you have suggestions, leave a comment on my blog ... I'll be giving away patterns/stitchmarkers to people helping me find a cool one...
Here's my first two prototypes cars.. They both have flaws, but will make fine presents for 2 babies born this summer. I'm plannig to make matching baseball caps for the older brothers / sisters, but I've only started on that. Oh, and I might redo the light pink wheels. That's one of the "flaws" (I'm now making them less fat) and it disturbs my eye.. so that's why I haven't embroidered the X on them like on the other car. They both have wee sleigh bells inside. My 2 year old likes them, she's already ordered one...
A long story for such a little skirt..! I had this leftover of unknown cotton, and really liked the color. So I started a skirt for my girl. (even knit a few rows at the clinic after giving birth to my second girl..). Ripped it several times to get the design right. Then ran out of yarn. So I ripped it all, and started again, till the very last yards. Skirt was nice, but still real short and the top would roll. Yet I really liked it and didn't want all these efforts to be in vain... So, shh ! I got some close-enough light blue yarn, crocheted a few sc rows around the waist and one row around the bottom.. And tada ! now it fits her perfectly, is just the right length and flares like it should !
She even seems to like it... kept it on (nearly) all day. ;-)
hi all, once again I turn to Crafsters for help... English is not my native language so I always like to have my patterns "re-read" by a native speaker to look for things that sound odd or unclear... would anybody be interested to help me with that ? Obviously you'd have the pattern in exchange (final version that is...). I'd like to have that done pretty quick, if possible.(no actual testing of the pattern involved, just need proofreading and rewording if needed)
The pattern is for that baby set. Please send me a word via IM if interested.
So we celebrated the 2nd birthday of my niece and daughter last week-end, and I made them a Lucille Peep each with some recycled yarn I had in the stash. They're pretty quick to make really although all the little parts seem a bit daunting at first...
I did mess up some, like I misread the instructions for the dress and it ended up too short. So I added a few extra rows to the top. (second dress also got longer to match), and I made the legs of the second doll a wee bit short. But hey, who cares, right ?
Oh, and ended up not embroidering faces (buttons were out for 2 year olds) cause... was too afraid to make a total mess ! ;-P
NB: Because the connection to Crafster was problematic when I tried posting this earlier today, seems it's been misposted already (but blank, only title). So there are 2 posts with the same title, but only one showing images ect... And I can't seem to be able to delete the first one. I've contacted the board moderator about it, hope she'll be able to fix that !...
Hi, I'm sylvie and I'm finalising the writing of a pattern that uses a stitch described in that book (The crochet stitch bible) that I own, ..but french version !!!
In order to make it clearer and everything, (+ give the exact page reference in the english book), I'd rather try and quote the exact instructions than just translate them.
So if somebody had this book (which I highly recomend btw!!!) and wouldn't mind helping me with that, I'd highly appreciate. (will send you a copy of the pattern too if you want, it's for a baby shower gift set, pics there ) (scroll down a bit, pics are clickable)
So I have this huuuuge stash, and there was lotsa boring white yarn in it. I started dying it a couple weeks ago (with food-colouring, no Kook-aid here in France) and now it all screams "me, me, me!!".
I made this wee cardi yesterday with some soft pure wool. The colors remind me of "bois de rose" for some reason...
Now the only problem is I made it for my daughter but for some reason she won't let me approach her with it !! (not that it's scratchy or anything !!)
So I recently got me new shelves to store all my stash. But I still needed something to store my works-in-progress at night without always running after needles and scissors ect..
So I made this "crate" with real nice yarn (don't you love the colours?!) but soooooo scratchy !!! And to think I once envisioned to make a sweater with it... !!
Anyhow, it worked perfectly for this. I made it so it fits nicely in the shelves, AND I can store any project inside including my notebook and magazines and whatever...
I took me several attempts to find the right way to finish the handles, but all in all I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. And the "seams" on the side really help giving it a more structured look (I crocheted in the round so it looked a bit like a blob before that)
... Also, I'm happy: that was stashbusting big time !! Still have lots of the pink yarn though, will probably be one of my next crochet projects... Am thinking of a round bucket-thingy... my mum said she liked that one, and I just taught her to crochet : she could use it to store her projects.. ;-)
