1  Re: 2009 Holiday Handmade Crusade :: (March Theme Page 1) in Craftalongs by GumInMyHair on: March 17, 2009 09:15:26 AM
I have the perfect quilt for the March theme of making a memory.

I saved several T-shirts that my daughter wore when she was little (they all had holes or stains, etc. so I couldn't donate them) for the purpose of making her this quilt when she got older. When I saw this months theme, I knew it was time to do it.

It's a rag quilt. I added little things to the squares like a "C" pocket, applique heart and fish, stamped a few with flowers, etc., but mostley painted bedbugs on it.  Smiley
 

She's a teenager now and likes the memories that these shirts bring back.

This is the sweater on the cover of Crochet! Magazine (Jan. 2009). It worked up quickly and fits well. Caron SS. Do you like it?

4  Easy, Warm, Cardigan sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by GumInMyHair on: January 25, 2009 10:55:36 AM
This is only the second sweater I have ever made. It fits fine and is very warm. I have been wearing it a lot this winter.

It's made with 1 1/2 skeins of JoAnn's Sensations yarn (the brushed kind). It was fast and easy...my favorite kind of pattern  Wink. I definitely think it's good for beginners too.
I used this pattern, but I didn't add the length or the collar. I wanted a sweater instead of a coat.

FINISHED!!
With plenty of time left to mail it off for Christmas.

4x5 throw for my parents.
I joined with a sc stitch with the ridge on top.
This CAL was a fun way to make a Christmas present.

6  My sweater fits! in Crochet: Completed Projects by GumInMyHair on: September 16, 2008 04:43:11 PM
This is my first attempt at clothing. I am thrilled that it fits!

I am going to add a button where I am holding it closed.

I used this pattern, but I made it longer and added waist shaping, made the sleeves longer, and added two rows of sc instead of the picot. It was an easy pattern and it only took me two weeks to finish.

mommycrochets, I like the pink and brown color combo.

Here are a couple baby blankets I just finished for a friend who is due any day.

I made the 12 point star first out of scraps. I was hoping it would be suitable for a boy or girl, but once it was finished I thought it was too girly, so I made another one in case the baby is a boy.

Here are my squares so far. I didn't take time to straighten them up for the picture. I just tossed them on the floor and snapped a pic before the dog ran threw them.

My April square is in there somewhere. I thought I had all my tails weaved in, but I see one in the pic.

10  Purple cat with a bird on it's tail in Needlework: Completed Projects by GumInMyHair on: April 23, 2008 01:30:27 PM
I saw this cat at Hoop Love and wanted to put it on a towel. I added a bird because I just thought it needed it. The rick rack isn't sewn on yet and it's not ironed. I am going to mail it to my mom as part of her Mothers Day gift.

Thanks to JenB, Kittykill, and TreeCactus for their advice. The back looks very neat.
