21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dice bags on: December 22, 2016 08:17:19 PM
I crocheted the two of these up last weekend for a couple of friends who were new the monthly Magic: The Gathering night hubby and I host once a month at our house. They saw the dice bag I had crocheted for my hubby and asked if I could make them dice bags.
One friend requested "any shade of purple" so I used Caron Deep Violet for his bag. The other friend requested "the brightest yarn you've got" so I used Red Heart Neon Stripes for his bag.

These are very simple to make and work up very quickly.
Here's a pattern for them:
12 DC in magic ring
2 DC in each DC around; 24 sts
*DC, 2 DC in next st*, repeat around; 36 sts
*DC in next 2 sts, 2 DC in next st*, repeat around; 48 sts
DC around evenly until bag is the desired depth.
For the last row:
*DC in next 2 sts, ch 1, sk next st*, repeat around; 48 sts (including the ch 1s)
For the drawstring, just chain until you reach the desired length then tie it off and make a knot at either end. It shouldn't come untied but I always burn the ends with a lighter, just to be sure. Keep in mind that I used acrylic yarn for these. I don't think you'd want to burn the ends on wool!

Project Name: Christmas Elf for Booboo
Project Link: Here
This was a Christmas gift for a good friend. I made it as an improved version of the elf I made a few years ago for a coworker's sister-in-law. This one is taller and, in my opinion, much cuter than her counterpart. She was made with a different sized hook and given plastic eyes instead of embroidered eyes. She was going to have a mouth like the other one but I forgot. Roll Eyes

For reference, this was the original elf:

This cute little elf was made for a good friend who mentioned she wanted an elf decoration for her home but thinks that the Elf on the Shelf is creepy.
As someone who shares that sentiment, I decided to crochet her an elf that is more on the cute side.

This is the only picture I got because I had forgotten to take pictures of her and didn't realize it until my hubby and I were almost there.
If anyone is curious, to make her hat have a slight point, I started with eight DC in a magic ring and it stands up because I pulled the stitches really tight.

Ooh Star Wars Christmas fabric! That is awesome, gozer! If we were giving gifts, I'd make gift bags but the only ones getting gifts are the kids in the family (my cousin's two kids, the nephews, and our baby) and I'm just going to hand them their gifts. Except the baby: hubby bought some cheap wrapping paper for me to wrap his gifts because my little froggy likes to rip paper.

Rockingbearranch, I love your bugs. They're so pretty! (I never thought I would say that I love bugs! lol)

Project Name: Ranger Cookies for Game Night
At least once a month my hubby and I host a game night at our house. It's never a lot of people, just five or six people and that's including the two of us. We play Magic: The Gathering and sometimes Cards Against Humanity (I love that game). We usually have some sort of chips for a snack but I decided since it's the holiday season I would bake some cookies for tonight. The improvisation was using walnuts instead of pecans, which I had never done with this recipe before. I think I actually prefer the walnuts over pecans for these cookies.

Gotta get the photos from my hubby because the photographer emailed the files to him.

It was fun! The dolls were finished enough that everyone present who are Magic players knew they were Chandra and Garruk. They were super excited over them. One friend even tried to sneak Garruk away! lol

Thanks, I need it.
Here's an updated photo:


For the wedding, I'll just be adding the horns to his helmet and adding her goggles. There are lots more details to both of them but those will have to wait til later because I have to finish my bouquet, which probably won't be as magnificent as I wanted.

I've put in at least 8 more hours and still am not finished with them! My wedding is Saturday at 11AM. Wish me luck and pray for my sanity because the little fiddly bits that make up their details are driving me crazy. And I have to make boots to go over Garruk's boots: I just now realized that I used green for his boots instead of brown as they should be.
