11  Plastic Grocery Bag Crocheted Clutch in Crochet: Completed Projects by getinmumouthstuff on: February 17, 2004 08:15:37 PM
This is one of the handpurses I've made in the past few years/I liked this one best b/c I used a single crochet.  Beg your friends for their bags!



4/16: See another bag in process--much larger.  Smiley

12  hidden compartment multi zipper fantasmic bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by getinmumouthstuff on: February 17, 2004 08:14:12 PM
WOW.  This is a HUGE post.  BIGBIG BIG  

I made this purse with a bunch of old zippers I picked up at the thrift shop and my old cords.

The sides of the purse are made from the back pockets of the pants.  I lost my machine zipper foot, so sewed the whole thing up by hand.   The pics were taken before I got the top done.  

Hanging from the side:


And from the front:


Almost all of the zippers open the entire purse.  I used the fly zipper on the top with the button:

Any ideas for a handle?  I'm thinking about one strap that has a secret zipper compartment sewn into it.

I've laminated or put contact paper on some of the ones I've done, but didn't do anything for this particular purse.  

definitely a summer-time don't-shove-everything-into-it kind of purse.  And here's one of The Sting.  I used zippers for the handles.  Great for knitting needles and smaller projects!

I've been obsessed with wristwarmmies since Thanksgiving.  It means that I can finish a project every night (or three or four!).  

My basic pattern is to CO 36 sts of a worsted weight yarn on size 7/8.  K1, p1 in first color for 4-5 rows, depending on what you like best.  k1, p1 of your second color for 12-15 rows and cast off.  Sew together.  Add patch.  

This was all before the intarsia fever set in, so now I'm not using patches.  but all the same.

Here's mine.  

Apologies for the pic--I accidentally knit these ones extra extra extra lusty so don't have a model for them!

This pattern is my general tried-and-true, not the one featured in the pic.

Using size 13 needles, I CO 34 sts of three strands light weight acrylic (medium--Use 32 sts for S or 36 for M+).  

K1, p1 every row until you achieve a desired length or close to it (your length must be knee height or shorter or you'll have to add sts).  I keep a stitch counter going so I know exactly how many sts for the next warmer.  

When the leggies are nearly as long as I like them to be, I knit all sts all rows for 6 rows.  This helps to keep a natural elastic around the knees.   You should have a huge knit rectangle/square.  Sew together.  The CO row goes near the ankles.  Repeat.  

Feel free to weave ribbons in and out of the tops or sew on buttons/zippers.  I've sewed zippers into the seams rather than attaching them directly, too.

16  strawberry hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by getinmumouthstuff on: February 02, 2004 05:59:16 PM
In an effort to battle the yarn takeover in my life (even the not so great yarn)


I double crocheted a hat with pink acrylic and then added a red bouclee strands in random spots.  the red tails were originally a big bow, but I liked them better down.

I've been making these like a madwoman.

go mother goose--inside and out.  I used the handles from a gift bag/just bent and filed them.
