1  Re: Flapperish or 1930's Cloche Hat with Flower - - Pattern Too! in Crochet: Completed Projects by redpixiegrrl on: September 28, 2004 03:10:27 PM
I guess this is what happens when I don’t check craftster on a regular basis….sigh…so I’ll ad my post onto this topic even though I used a different pattern, but the hats look somewhat alike!  Cheesy I was inspired by a crocheted hat I saw in “Lucky” magazine ($97?!?! I don’t think so!) and created the this hat instead.

The hat pattern itself is from the Groovy Crochet (web archive) site. I used Lion Brand wool ease. It took less than one skein.

The flower I created myself using Paton’s Divine. It is more pink than the picture shows.

2  Bottle Cap Jewelry: Bottle Cap Bracelet! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by redpixiegrrl on: September 14, 2003 04:06:34 PM
Bottle Cap Bracelet

What you'll need:
    [*]several bottle caps (I got some cool unused vintage ones on e-bay)
    [*]6 mm jump rings
    [*]4mm jump rings
    [*]dremel or other rotary tool
    [*]sand paper or nail file
    [*]crazy or super-type permanent glue
    [*]clasp/closure of your choice
    [*]tape measure
    [*]scrap piece of wood
    Using a tape measure, measure your wrist holding the tape measure snug, but not tight. Lay down the tape measure on a flat surface. Lay the bottle caps on top of it until the number of bottle caps matches your wrist measurement (FIG 1). Remember that the jump rings will add a small amount of length.

    Lay the bottle cap on your wood scrap. Using your rotary tool and an extremely small bit (mine was about the size of a toothpick) drill two holes on opposite sides of the bottle cap. You will find it easiest to drill next to the crimps in the cap. (FIG 2) Turn the cap over and sand the holes to smooth down the rough edges. Do this step for all of the bottle caps.

    Take the 6mm jump ring and twist it open. Holding the two caps together like a sandwich (FIG 3) insert the jump ring through both bottle caps. Close the jump ring and repeat this step on all of the caps. Seal all the jump rings (except for the ones on each of the ends) with the glue.

    The bracelet should be flexible where the jump rings are attached (FIG 4). If for some reason yours are not, you may need to use bigger jump rings.

    Attach a 4mm jump ring to one side and attach the clasp to the other. Seal the remaining rings.

    Tahdah....You have made a unique new piece of jewelry! Wear it with pride....
