81  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Turning an image into a tag? on: April 06, 2011 05:23:53 AM
Hello, This is my first post on the board, so "How you doin'?" I'm a crocheter but have a love for paper, too! I recently bought a few cds of images, like old greeting cards and such. I would like to turn some of these images into tags. I know I can print them out and use scissors or a tag punch, but I would like to actually have them look like tags when I print off multiple images on paper. Are there any tutorials or advice that that you can share with me? Is there software that can help? Can I do this in Paint? I would love to be able to add these tag sheets to my free pattern page so that everyone can enjoy them.

Here are some samples:

83  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet a Head Scarf , Doo-Rag or Chemo Cap---> with free pattern link on: April 03, 2011 06:56:09 AM

You never know when inspiration will hit. I was watching an old movie, really old ,like 1927, titled "The Unknown". A very young Joan Crawford was wearing a side-tied scarf around her head. I fell in love with the look. I re-created a version in crochet. It only takes 2.5 ounces of worsted yarn and an H/5.00 hook. I used Bernat Super Value Yarn from their Ombre line. The color was Fresh Lilac.
This would also make a nice chemo cap if done in a soft organic cotton.

Here is the pattern:

For all the Southwest fans, here is a Red Hot Chili Pepper Wall Hanging or Curtain in filet.It's a cool addition to your kitchen decor! I made it with Victory Red #10 thread and my favorite vintage Lee Wards#7 steel hook.  This piece measures 6 inches x 12 inches in the extended double crochet stitch.

85  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Bunny Face Coaster, Tote Basket and Purse---->Free Pattern Links on: March 14, 2011 03:06:43 PM

It's Bunny Rabbit Season! What better way to show your love of bunnies than by making a three piece set with a bunny face as an element?
There is a coaster, a tote done in doubled yarn with the bunny face appliqued on the front and a cute purse made with the same coaster pattern but doubled yarn and a big hook. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and 2 different hooks, an H/5.00mm and a K/6.5mm. Sizes are:coaster=5x7,tote=10x9, purse=7x8.5.

Make all three items on a free Saturday, that's how quickly they are made.

86  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Giant Long Stem Rose Scarf---->Free Link included! on: March 11, 2011 05:32:57 AM

What do you get when you combine an Irish leaf, a hollow tube and a hyperbolic bloom? You get a Long Stem Rose Scarf, that's what! I'm so happy with the way this scarf developed. It uses  Red Heart Super Saver yarn and an I/5.5mm hook. It's 62 inches long and crocheted in one piece. Along with the written directions, I have also included a photo slide show with all the steps to making the leaf and rose. It's perfect for Birthdays, Mother's Day, gardeners, Valentine's Day or just because!

87  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Angel Wings Double Pineapple Scarf---->Free Link! on: March 10, 2011 05:29:35 AM

Double Pineapple Angel Wings

Cathedral Pineapple End

Here is a prayer scarf/shawl that is made with one skein of Red Heart Super Saver. I used an I/5.5mm hook and it measues 8 inches wide by 62 inches long. This is a very nice pattern to work if you've never tried the pineapple stitch before. I have included the slide show of step by steps in the pattern, so just follow along and you'll be done with your scarf in no time flat!
You don't have to use it for a prayer scarf, it's pretty enough just to wear around the office when it gets a little too chilly.

Here is the pattern:

If you would like to see the step-by-step, this is the the photo tutorial:

I hope you enjoy this lacy scarf!


88  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Leafy Ladder Stitch Scarf In Painterly Colors--->Free Pattern Link on: March 08, 2011 06:06:50 AM

I blended two strands of yarn at different points in the scarf to get a nice gradation of color. The yarn was Red Heart Super Saver and my hook size was a P/11.5 mm. This is a good way to use up your scraps as you don't have to follow what I did, but make it your own. I'm getting so many compliments on this scarf!
It's really fast to make!

Here is the pattern:


89  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Plump Moon Goddess with link to free pattern on: March 07, 2011 04:32:58 AM

Here is a Plump Moon Goddess and her twin moon pals! I used Aunt Lydia's crochet thread,#10 in purple and my Lee Wards #7 steel hook. The size is 7x7 in inches. Also, this was made in the extended double crochet stitch to get a more accurate gauge. Using the the normal double crochet will yield a plumper goddess, but will still be very nice.

Here is a photo tutorial on the extended double crochet stitch:
