21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: my first garment crochet: bumblebee pasty and g-string set. on: March 24, 2010 06:04:39 PM
Oh, I love the pasties...I'm a pastie maker too!  But I can't crochet and all I keep thinking is that they'd be comfier than regular pasties  Cheesy but they'd need to be taped on anyway...oh well!

As a bigger bummed gal I'd avoid the g-string a bit for the audiences sake  Grin but these are the coolest little sets!

So very much impressed.


thanks!!! i've only been crocheting for a month or two, tops. they actually are really comfy. a cool tip for getting them to stick is sewing craft foam to them, and then using double-sided tape or eyelash glue...Wink

the g-string is simply a rough model of a bikini bottom that i'm trying to make (of course, it won't be a g-string). i'm thinking that it will work just as well! glad you like them!!!

thanks, you guys!

i haven't really considered selling them, but i have been getting requests from girlfriends who want them...i might charge something, but i'm not sure yet.

ideally, i wouldn't mind modeling them, but i don't think it would be appropriate on this site, hehe =)

as far as a pattern is concerned, i just crochet into a circle until it's sizable. as for the g-string, i just start with a chain and eventually start to decrease. every person is different, so there's no way that i could make an efficient pattern for it. it's pretty much trial and error. for the girls who have requested sets, i've been required to ask them personal things such as areola size (i know, haha) and a rough measurement of the average g-string that they would wear. then i just go from there!

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!

thank you! they're so easy to do...you can even throw in color combos, weird stitching, and things like that. i posted this pic to facebook about an hour ago and already have multiple requests from girlfriends for sets! i'm almost finished with a purple and black setup for my mom's best friend (hehe). when i'm finished with that one, i'll post it in this same thread! i don't think enough credit is given for people who have risque tastes--especially for burlesque and things of that sort, in regard to crochet and other d.i.y. disciplines. there is now a burlesque troupe in the city in which i live, and i have numerous ideas for them in regard to performance pieces! i recall viewing a website that had a show in which every garment was either knitted or crocheted...i was in awe.

thanks for your support!

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!
