31  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Hook Case on: November 29, 2005 12:56:33 AM
I hope that it's ok to post this here.. It is relevant to crochet, and I don't know where else to post it. If it needs to go somewhere else, please do tell!

So, I rarely get time to crochet, so I like to take a bag with a ball of yarn and my hooks around with me. I'll crochet a few rows in the car, at my boyfriends, before class, whenever I can. I kept my hooks in a plastic baggy, but they kept poking holes in it and falling out. So over this weekend I made a hook case for myself. It's not perfect, but I love it!

I made it out of a place-mat, elastic, and blue binding.



PS. I got ALL my hooks at goodwill:D I love thrifting for craft supplies!
32  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Needle felting kits? on: November 16, 2005 09:57:48 AM
I really want to start felting, but I live in a smaaall town with no resources, so I have to get everything online. I'd prefer a kit, and I REALLY want this kit: http://www.bearycheap.com/info/felting1.html  but it would be shipping from Australia. I live in the US, so it would take too long/too much money to ship.

Does anyone know of any similar needle felting kits I could buy? I would really love one that came w/ instructions for cute things (like those bears!) but it isn't necessary if anyone has any great beginner book suggestion.

Thanks!!

EDIT: oops, wrong link! I corrected it.
33  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fat birdie on: November 15, 2005 09:34:09 PM
I am so happy with this one! I finally feel like I actually made something cute! I made her (bf insists it is a girl) using this pattern:  http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/birds.html. I improvised with the wings because I didn't like the ones it the pattern. Basically it's a leaf.


34  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Animal eyes? on: October 26, 2005 04:09:12 PM
Hello,
I live in a smaaaaalllll town and none of my local sewing shops sell animal eyes! The dollar store and goodwill have very cheap stuffed animals with the perfect eyes, but I don't know if those can be re-used. Can you cut out old animal eyes and re-use them? (that sounds icky, I dunno if I could do that anyways!) Or, are there any good, cheap, reputable sources online? I'm thinking brown animal eyes, around 4-5mm in diameter...
Thanks,
Jess
