I made a crochet bag for a swap once and I crocheted her initials into the handle. It's subtle, but also looks kind of neat. I can't find the pic at the moment.

You could make snowflakes instead of flowers.

You could get a nice slip and put underneath. Bypass the whole lining thing...

Excellent. Thanks! I really love the one Radioactive linked to but I don't think I'm good enough to make those changes to the pattern the way Suz_Anne did, lol. However...the other one looks pretty good. I will check out Happy Hooker, too.

Hey, everybody -

I got inspired by a repeat viewing of Amelie this weekend... now I am looking for a sweater/jacket/cardigan pattern similar to some on this page:
http://www.whiteliesdesigns.com/patterns/lcardigans.html

I particularly like Marcella, Madeline, and the Angelina Vintage Jacket. I can't knit so...I must find a crochet pattern. I've searched for a while on craftster, some of the various free and paid pattern sites, and looked at Amazon. Now I'm turning to my crafster friends for help!

Do you have a pattern I can beg, borrow, or steal? Do you know a book with a similar pattern?

Grazie!!

I was reading this advice column today on Yahoo! and Dear Margo has an interesting letter posted that seems relevant to our conversation:



DEAR MARGO: My niece had always loved dolls as a little girl. I adore my niece, and a few years ago, when she was 8 or 9, I gave her two handmade dolls for her birthday.

I put a lot of time, energy, money and love into those dolls. A few weeks ago, her mother called to tell me they were having a garage sale, and that "Marilyn" had outgrown the dolls and they were going in the sale. My S-I-L (my niece's mother) thought I might want the dolls back.

Although I was a little (OK, a lot) hurt that my niece didn't value the dolls enough to keep them, I was, nevertheless, grateful that I was given the opportunity to get them back instead of having them sold to strangers.

However, when I went to pick up the dolls, I was told that since they'd easily bring $20 apiece in the garage sale, I should pay fair market value. (I paid at least $100 just for materials, but that isn't the point.)

I forked over the $40 to get the dolls back, but I can't get over this resentment. Please help me make sense of this. I don't like this feeling I'm left with.

                       - RAGGEDY AUNT

DEAR RAG: Two words come to mind: chintzy and insensitive. The mother, if not the kid, was kinda dense to ignore your feelings and the fact that the dolls were a labor of love. To nickel and dime a relative is pretty cheap, and I hope she got a lot for the extra 40 bucks she made.

One thing she lost was the good feeling between you, and should she notice the relationship is not what it once was, I would be open with her as to the reason.

                        - MARGO, DISENCHANTEDLY

I have seriously considered making tags that look like they came from a chic chic little boutique and maybe not exactly quite crossing out the "price" and see if this fares any better.

I think my husband is adopted too...except he looks exactly like his mom.

The weirdo thing is...my in-laws are their own kind of crafty so I don't get how they can be so cavalier about someone else's crafts. My FIL does woodworking and is about to finish this really magnificent intarsia highchair for my niece. My MIL makes wedding cakes and sews.

Maybe they just don't like ME.
