1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / CORK COASTERS - Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Chuck Norris, The Most Interesting Man... on: January 01, 2011 12:19:58 PM


For Christmas, me and my cousins do a Secret Santa
and my cousin Alex wanted clothes and coasters...
so, since the bulk of his gift was a gift card,
I felt like I needed to give him some super special personalized coasters.
These are some of the most important men in his life!! ahaha
and I was obviously inspired by Anne Taintor~

The coasters come in a 4-pack from the 99 cent store,
the photos were collected online and manipulated in Photoshop,
then they were printed, laminated and cut out,
and then glued on with tacky glue.

Not sure how well they'll hold up, but they do look super spiffy Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Total Newbie :) Help please? on: December 17, 2010 03:53:27 PM
Me and all my cousins are each crocheting squares
that we're connecting into a huge blanket for our grandma.
My stitches are finally looking better, but I have a question about the pattern...

Starting Chain: chain 24.
Row 1: single crochet in each chain across
Row 2: chain 1 (to turn), single crochet in across the row.
Row 3: chain 1 (to turn), single crochet in across the row.
Row 4: chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), double crochet in each of next 7 single crochet stitches, chain-1, double crochet in next single crochet stitch and repeat 2 more times, double crochet in each of next 8 single crochet stitches.

SO, row 4 is my issue.
I'm guessing that when I chain inbetween the dc's, I would skip one of the single crochet stitches,
so it's sorta hanging mid air and makes a decorative hole?
But even so, wouldn't that be too few stitches to fill up the whole row?
7 dcs (8 if u count the chain 3), chain, dc, chain, dc, chain, dc, 8 dc = 22, and I have 24...
what am I missing!

Thanks so much for any guidance y'all can give me  Grin
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Beware the Weeping Angels... and whatever you do, DON'T BLINK on: November 06, 2010 08:42:45 PM


I have recently become obsessed with Doctor Who and had been debating about what I should be for Halloween (a TARDIS? Clockwork Droid?) One of my favorite episodes is Blink but I thought I couldn't pull a Weeping Angel off in time. And then with a week to go till Halloween, my cousin convinced me otherwise  Grin While I didn't get around to making a mask, my wings turned out so fabulously, I can't really care.

**UPDATE 11/16/10**
I've added 2 photos of the dress itself. They've been in my closet, so don't mind the wrinkles  Grin The dress is actually a separate top and skirt, to make it easier to get into and out of, and the top sort of folded under on the bottom to give the billowy effect. It was the first time I've worked entirely without a pattern, so I kept it simple. Elastic was my best friend! After sewing the skirt, I separated the hula hoop (so it was no longer a continuous circle), threaded it through a thick hem on the bottom, and then reattached it. Then, I painted everything with acrylic paint, which helped to stiffen em all up a bit.

Any other questions, feel free to ask!!


Big thanks to penwiper337 at crafty_tardis for her Weeping Angel costume post. It really inspired me with mine.
