281  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: knit/crochet a blanket swap on: October 27, 2011 01:08:05 PM
I think this could be fun, and I'd be down for that since I'd like to join a swap anyway.

Would we shoot for larger squares for fewer people or smaller squares for more people? I guess it all depends on how many people want in. It be neat to combine both knit and crochet squares, so people could decide which they'd want to do. I only crochet but I'd like some knit mixed in with mine.

284  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My Addiciton to the Doctor on: October 08, 2011 08:00:27 PM
I had to redo the clock in my crafting room first. Nicole the knitter sent me a Doctor Who image: http://celebs.icanhascheezburger.com/2011/09/29/funny-celebrity-pictures-doctors-in-time/, that as soon as I saw it, I thought that would rock as a clock design with a little tweaking. Then I thought, hey, I know how Cafe Press works, I can create my own Doctor Who clock...because who other than a time lord should have a clock?

Then I heard my crafting room clock ticking above me and the light bulb went on above my head!!!! I'll make my own Doctor Who clock with that clock!!!! Hell, I blame Nicole for my Who addiction anyway.

Before: a simple clock with grapes on it.

The design I came up with in Photoshop first and then printed out. I can always add in a new image for #12 someday later on, if I feel like it. The background was some random wallpaper from a outer space site. I rotated it a little bit, adjusted the colors to more blues and greens, and gave it a little bit of a motion blur.

After: I repainted the out metal ring of the clock and clear coated it. Then I printed out the design I came up with and Mod Podged it onto the back piece (I removed the entire grape background). Then I used more Mod Podge to hold all those beads in place. The randomness of the colors and sizes made me think of Saturn's rings. The image is about 9.25" across.

Those boots are all kinds of awesome and you did a great job on them!!!! From the picture, I think I see the funky texture you mentioned the paint having, but I really dig it on those boots, "in real life." Smiley I hope you'll keep posting updates as you go with the costume. I do love Wondy, even if my heart totally belongs to Spidey.  Cheesy

Awesome little pattern. Thanks for sharing it. I finished up one of these for my sister's kid for Christmas in the same shades as the Edith hat I made a couple weeks ago.

I love these little worked from the top down patterns.  Cheesy

I love the idea that you painted one of those pumpkins. I bought a couple a few years ago and carved them, and HATED them. (I ended up sending them to my sister and her husband once they bought their house and didn't have much to decorate with.) And with the base and that funky face, he reminds me of something out of the Nightmare Before Christmas. He's got kind of a Burton-esque flair to him. Smiley
289  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Edith's Hat from Despicable Me on: September 18, 2011 12:47:22 PM
It took me two full tries and lots of frogging/swearing in between, but I finally have a child's sized hat like Edith's in "Despicable Me" for my niece for Christmas!

Materials
--H sized hook
--1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Baby Pink (#0724)
--1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Country Rose (#0374)

Hat
Start with the Light Pink (this hat is worked from the top down). Make a magic circle (chain 1 and 7 SC). Pull tight and secure with a slip stitch. Note: although it is not mentioned anywhere else in this pattern, all rows are secured with a slip stitch (before the end chain). The hat is not turned and the seam of where the rows are joined is the back of the hat.
Rows 1-2: Work 2 DC in each stitch around. Chain 2.
Rows 3-4: Work 1 DC in each stitch around. Chain 2.
Row 5: Work 1 DC in the first stitch, then 2 DC in the second stitch, *1 DC in the next and repeat * around.  Chain 2.
Row 6: Change to the Country Rose yarn. *Work 1 HDC in the first two stitches, 2 HDC in the next stitch, repeat from * around. Chain 2.
Row 7: Work 1 HDC in each stitch around. Chain 2.
Row 8: Switch to the Light Pink. *Work 1 DC in each of the first three stitches, 2 DC in the next stitch, repeat from the * around. Chain 2.
Rows 9-10: Work 1 DC in each stitch around.
Rows 11-12: Repeat row 6 in Country Rose.
Rows 13-15: Repeat  row 7 in Light Pink.
Rows 16-17: Repeat row 6 in Country Rose.Fasten off the yarn at the end of row 17.

Earflaps (Make 2):
Row 1: With the Light Pink, chain 11. Leave a long length for attaching the earflap to the hat.
Row 2: In the second chain from the hook, work 1 SC and then 1 SC in each stitch back. Chain 1.
Row 3: Work 1 SC in each stitch across and 2 SC in the last stitch. Chain 1.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2.
Row 5: Repeat Row 3.
Row 6: Work 1 SC in each stitch across. Chain 1.
Row 7: Work 1 SC in each stitch across and work the last 2 SCtog.Chain 1.
Row 8: Work first 2 SCtog and then 1 SC in each stitch across. Chain 1.
Row 9: Repeat Row 7. Fasten off your yarn with a slip stitch.

Construction:
Flatten the hat with the seam on one edge. Find the center of each side and sew the earflaps into the INSIDE of the hat with whip stitches, using that length of Light Pink yarn you left. Attach them so the top flat edge is lined up on the Light Pink, somewhere around Row 15 (the pointed end faces down). Trim off any loose ends.

Instead of trying to do the ridges of Country Rose in Front and Back Post Crochets like I did with the other hat, I came back with the Country Rose and did rows of what I've always called "surface SC" between the Light Pink and Country Rose stripes. On the back of the hat at the seam points, attach the Country Rose with a slip stitch and chain 1. Around the posts between the colors, work SC's around the entire circumference of the hat. If you are having a hard time with this, check out http://morepjs.blogspot.com/2009/08/surface-crochet-crochet-tutorial.html. The "And Sew It Is" blog actually has a great description of what I'm talking about here and she even calls it the same thing!!!!

With the Light Pink yarn, cut three lengths of 24 each and then double over. Stick the crochet hook through the bottom center of one of the earflaps from the inside out and catch the loop where the yarns are doubled over together. Attach the yarns as if you were making a tassel. Pull the yarns snug and braid. Secure the end with a single knot and trim if necessary. Repeat this same action for the tassel on top of the hat, but cut the yarn into lengths of 20".

So amazingly creative! I picked up to skellies yesterday at Walgreens and my husband cut them apart for me. I got them finally finished up and here is my take on your project.

Thanks for sharing this idea! They look like something you'd see in a Ripley's Museum! Smiley
I used my hot glue gun to attach these guys at the hip, the pelvic bone and the ribs. erica_tattoos was able to mesh her twins ribs together for a tighter looking fit than I was able to do with mine. My husband suggested some epoxy to better hold them tight, so I used some steel epoxy (that's all I had) over the hot glue, and then covered it up with some slightly tinted white craft paint (steel epoxy dries to a gunmetal gray finish).

For size comparison. Cujo was weirded out by these guys. They started singing "O Solo Mio" when I took this picture. When Cujo left, they started teasing him and then moved on to singing Irish drinking songs. It's going to be a long Halloween season!
