11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Monster High Crochet Dress pattern on: April 14, 2013 08:42:54 PM

The Cake Dress
Using Aunt Lydia's crochet cotton, beads for buttons and a steel crochet hook. Mine was my grandmothers and says 7 on it, but I think it's really old and has no relation to now sizing. As far as gauge I just to the first 2 rows and measure around the dolls waist. In the pattern there is ways to make it wider if necessary.

Cast on 25
R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn (24 st)
R2: Ch2, (counts as dc) dc across to last stitch, 2 dc in last stitch. Turn (26)
R3-5: Repeat R2 (32)
R6: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st dc, sc 11, skip 1, 5 dc in next, skip 1, sc 2, skip 1, 5 dc in next, skip 1, sc 11, 2 sc in last. Turn (38)
R7: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st st, sc 17, skip 2, sc 17, 2 sc in last stitch, Turn (38)
R8: ch 1, sc 17, sc2tog twice, sc 17 (36)
R9:ch 1, 2 sc in 1st, sc 16, skip 2, sc 16, 2 sc in last (36)
R10:slip stitch across 5 stitches, ch 11, skip 9, slip across 8, ch 11, skip 9, slip in last 5, dont turn.
R11: Going down the side, sc 2, ch 6, skip 2 spaces, sc 2, ch 6, skip 2 spaces, sc 2, ch 6 skip 2 spaces, sc 2. (this is mostly just eyeballing 2 spaces to get 3 button loops evenly) You can add the
Note: If your top doesn't fit at the back, you can also do a couple rows on sc to make it a bit longer.
You can also stop here and leave it as a top.

Going across the bottom.

R1: ch 1, sc in bottom loops across (24)
R2:ch 2 (counts as 1st dc) dc in 1st stitch, 2 dc in each sc across (48)
R3:ch 3, 2 tr in 1st stitch, 3 tr in each across (144) turn
R4: ch 1 sc across in back loops only, join with slip stitch to 1st sc making a round. (144)
R5: ch 3 do not turn, tr in each stitch across join with slip stitch (144)
R6: ch 1, sc in back loops around, join with slip stitch
Continue rounds 5 and 6 until desired length. Be careful not to lose stitches at the end of your rounds.
Bind Off.

At this point what you do is optional. I used pink contrasting crochet thread and added a little ruffle. This is why you did the back loops.
Pick a row, sc at the back in a front loop, ch 6, skip 3 loops, sc, around.
Slip into 1st chain loop, ch1, (sc, ch6 sc) in 1st loop, ch 6, (sc ch6, sc) in 2nd loop and continue around. Bind off.
Skip 2 rows of front loops, do the same.
At the bottom, sc around, ch1, sc, ch6, skip 3 stitch, sc, around bind off.

This can be done in all front loop row, only around the bottom, you can do 3 rows of lace, or just 1.

Now that your dress is finished, put on your doll and measure for bead placement at the back. Sew on beads, this makes the dress easy to put on and off and you can choose how tight it will be on the doll and if you want it tighter at the waist. Make sure you use beads small enough to fit in the loops, they don't have to fit perfect.

Hope this pattern is easy to follow. Ask if you have any questions.

Here's another My little pony I made. I created her Ponysona myself. She was just fun to create since I wasn't trying to duplicate anything. Her name is Spring Blossom. Pattern by Valleyviolet.
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Little pony Dr. Whooves on: March 23, 2013 10:09:30 AM

Here's a Dr. Whooves pony I made. I'm really happy with how he turned out, though he looks a little angry.
The pattern is by Valleyviolet. I hand knit his scarf and it's removable.
14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Little pony Fluttershy on: March 23, 2013 10:07:37 AM
So here's a Fluttershy pony I made. The pattern is by Valleyviolet on etsy. It's pretty easy to make I did the hair and clothes custom. She's wearing her Runway model outfit she wore in "Green isn't your color". The clothes are removable.
I made her to sell on ebay, hoping to make back some craft money but no ones bidding, so I'm thinking maybe there is something wrong with her.

If you have any ideas on what I should change for next time, that would be very helpful.
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cherry Blossom Shawl on: January 28, 2013 09:19:16 AM

This shawl comes from Crochet Today Magazine March/April 2012. I had a lot of fun making this.
It was my first time doing Crocodile stitch, which is actually quite easy. I used the same yarn and color as the pattern and included the picture so you could see what it looks like on. It needs a little more blocking, but overall I'm very happy with it.
16  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Princess Cadence on: January 26, 2013 10:26:58 AM

So I recently received a crochet Shining Armour (shown above) from Mama24boyz for the MLP Winter swap. My daughter instantly fell in love and needed a Princess cadence to match. So here she is.
The pattern is http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-little-pony-amigurumi
I quite love it and though it doesn't show because of the tail, the pony had bum checks, very cute.
I made the design for the eyes on my embroidery machine, then embroidered them on organza, cut them out and glued as well as stitched on. I stitched the wings down so my kids couldn't carry her by her wings and had to use more purple then I would have liked on them since I totally ran out of yarn for the body. I think next time I want to use less hair for the tail, but over all I'm very happy with how it turned out.
17  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Lunch with the Princess' on: January 18, 2013 08:47:42 AM
So we are going on our first family vacation in 10 days to Disney World and a Disney cruise. While at Disney world we will be having lunch with the princess'. I wanted to get my daughter a nice dress for the lunch, but the Disney ones weren't what I was looking for. So I decided to make this for her. I designed the pattern myself and referenced a few pictures online.

I made the hat, did all the embroidery and added some glass beads. It was quite hard to make and I had to do a lot of touch ups as well as asking for some help along the way.
But I'm very happy with how it turned out. This was my first time creating a pattern from scratch. I also learned a lot from it. As you all know it gets very hard to teach yourself some of this stuff when the supplies are so expensive. I didn't realize how heavy the fabric would get, which made it hard to be as poofy as I wanted.
I did the roses on my embroidery machine, they are from http://www.designsbyrothney.com/. She does really nice organza flowers that I love to add to everything.
18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Christmas quilt on: December 28, 2012 06:14:28 PM

I started this quilt 2 summers ago, but my sewing machine broke before Christmas and I didn't get it back til after. So it ended up in the dreaded UFO pile and I brought it out again this fall and managed to finish it for boxing day. The back is white flannel and I did the border in white flannel too, since I couldn't find the plain white cotton I had set aside. I really hated doing the borders in the flannel and don't recommend it. I just did freestyle quilting in the presents and colored borders. The corners are machine embroidered.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dress help.... Suggestions required on: December 07, 2012 07:54:13 PM
So I'm making this dress and need some tips and ideas to make it look nicer and not so home made.
I know it should be in kids, but I've posted there before and no one responds. Since this is more for the fashion then technique perspective, I think this board should work just as well.

So I wanted the bottom poofy-er, but I am not sure that the fabric will flow out the way I want it to, the overdress looks well, kind of silly in the front. I'm not so sure I can rescue this dress. The top is a bit tight and wrinkles at the back, so I'm gonna put in an insert. I'm just not sure about the front and how to make it look better. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thank you!

20  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Dress for Breakfast with the Princesses on: November 04, 2012 06:58:52 AM

At the end of January, we will be going to Disney World and having breakfast with the princess'. I want a really nice dress for my daughter and want to make this dress. Or something close to it. I have never really made my own pattern, but I've done enough sewing, that I don't think I'll have too much troubles. I thought I'd ask if anyone has some good advice for me before I get started. I really want the dress to turn out well.
