1  Re: ACTIVE: Granny-A-Day Crochet-Along MAY! in Crochetalongs by msface on: May 18, 2010 07:36:38 PM
TheRobotSays, I eat your Inga bag! I started on another one, using four rounds, and I was going to try the 13 square assembly. Lets just say that I ended up getting pretty frustrated with it, and decided to make this instead:

this is one side of the purse:



this is the other side:



i made a long strap because i have a large top area, if you know what i mean, and it's more comfortable that way: =)



and, i enclosed a zipper!:



I have put all of my typical purse items inside of it, and, so far, nothing has fallen out yet! (If I ever learn how to line stuff, i will definitely line both this and the purse I made for my sister. She says her pencils are always falling out of it haha)

Completely off subject, but I dusted the cobwebs off of my sewing machine last night, so I'm thinking that I'm about to get the sewing bug!!!

Lemme know what you think =)

Thanks! It's about a foot long and about 8 or 9 inches wide. I did only 4 rounds for each one. Here's how it turned out:





I gave it to her, and she loves it!

So I'm almost finished with my first Inga bag...All I have to do is make the straps!!!







I took these at about 3am this morning. Now that I have natural light, when I finish the bag, I'll post a more color-appropriate photo.

I'm excited!

I tried to make some cool slippers for my sister with the grannies pictured in one of my previous posts. The project as a whole just didn't work out, so I decided to start an Inga bag. I was supposed to be finished by today but simply did not have the time. Here is what I have so far:




and, no mono here!

I was looking around on the Web for ideas for my granny squares when I realized that Mother's Day is Sunday and my sister's birthday is Monday, so I've decided to make each of them a pair of granny square slippers. Here's what I have so far (for my 15-year-old sister):



I think she'll eat them! I'll post progress pics as I make them. I'll be working on these between study breaks all week.

I totally want in on this! I have a medical problem that doctors haven't been able to identify yet. They think it's mono, but it's too early to tell. Plus, I have impetigo on my face, so I'm not about going out and about anytime soon...with the exception of four finals I have to take at the University this coming week!

I was bored and bummed and stumbled across this thread...it inspired me to make my first granny square ever! I followed the attack link and this was my result:



It was really easy to make, and I really enjoyed doing it. I think I'll make another! I'm excited about this crochet-along. I looked at last month's and am very excited to see what everyone makes this time around! I plan on using black as the base for all of my squares, but am going to randomly do things with them as I go along.

WOO!!! =)

I have cabin fever.


:edit:

So I decided to keep going with the granny square and made this:

you should try...it's highly addictive! i use lion cotton to make them so they don't retain odor, and they still feel soft enough to wear. i haven't went out with them on yet, though, so i don't know how they will stand up to everyday use. =)

and now...completed set #2!

9  my first garment crochet: bumblebee pasty and g-string set. in Crochet: Completed Projects by msface on: March 15, 2010 11:28:47 AM
i am a left-handed person who taught herself to crochet right-handed. it has taken me literally ages to get down the simple swoops and maneuvers that someone with the right-hand advantage would already have. i know that there are books/tutorials on how to crochet left-handed, but i found it best to just learn the most popular way; to get the biggest bang for my buck, so to speak. i have made minor items, such as washcloths, coasters, and potholders, but wanted to try something simple and new. my cousin recently requested a simple, black bikini, and i promised her that i would have it made for her trip to vegas, which is about a month or so away.

i can do sc, dc, hdc, and so on, but felt the need to go ahead and learn to increase/decrease before trying to tackle this project. in the process of learning to decrease and decide how to formulate the bottoms for her bikini, i decided to make a g-string.

in the process of learning to increase by adding multiple stitches into one stitch, i made a circle and formed the pasties.

so, what started out as practice for the big she-bang ended in the resulting bumblebee pasty/g-string set: my first "garments".








i modeled the size of the g-string to my own proportions, all with sc, and then, when making the pasties, simply formed a 6-chain circle, with the first row being 12dc, second row being 24dc, and third row being 36dc. i then made simple black tassels and sewed them into the pasties!


i think that this ensemble would be cute to show off to a partner or even as a performance piece when paired with a black corset that only cinches the midriff. lemme know what you guys think about it!
