I notice the post above mine is also mine so there may not be that much interest, but they're crafty and they're super hero, so here's more. Tongue

Robin was the follow up to Batman, of course:


...then Martian Manhunter


and a second Superman cape.. (the first one was store bought)

Yay! I got a second one done before the end of the month!

Here's bag #2 for January.

I used leftover Baby Lash in 'Girly' to make the body and the flap, a little bit of light green gingham I've had for a while was the lining and a wee little pink button to finish it off.

So here is it!

Here we go! Here are a couple of photos of the Batman cape I made for the Super Hero in my life.  Wink

The closure at the neck is velcro, so as to open should the cape get stuck on something as he tears around here while we chase him down to remind him of the 'no running indoors' rule.

I hope I'm not too late to join!  Embarrassed

My sister and I were at Michael's this afternoon and much insanity ensued. We were literally giggling over the yarn and the beads and the magnets, oh the magnets! I saw some really cute felt and thought of this thread - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69526.0

So here's my version, a little felt clutch, my first bag for January.

36  so today i bought this cute felt... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by maytina on: January 14, 2006 08:57:09 PM
..and then I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it!

I adore the polkadots and I think the cats are great too. I have a whole lot of stuffing (thanks Grandma) and this is only the second time I've dipped in and used some!

So tah dah, a cute little pillow. It will be leaving my house soon to live with my dear friend Cait.

37  Cute hat and bootie set to knit! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by maytina on: September 30, 2005 09:55:50 AM
Hello! This is my first post, so hopefully I don't muck up the photos.

I'm making a ton of these this year. They knit up really fast on straight needles and you just sew them up the seams when you're done.

The Hat
Needle size depends a lot on how big you want the hat to be and how thin/thick your wool is. This hat was made on fairly thin wool, I used 4mm needles and it's a little on the small size. This hat will fit a newborn.



Cast on 50 stitches

Knit 2, purl 2 for the whole first row
Then purl 2, knit 2 for the whole second row.
Keep going like that until you've done 5 rows of each.

Knit the next row, then purl the row after that and keep going like that until you've done 6 rows of each.

Now, knit 2 stitches together for the whole row.

Purl the entire next row.

Knit 2 stitches together for the whole row again.

And purl the last row.

Now, leave a tail of wool and cut your wool. Thread your wool through a large needle, and sew up the side of the hat. You'll also have to do the same with the other tail you have hanging from when you started.

And now the booties
Needle size depends a lot on how big you want the booties to be and how thin/thick your wool is. These booties were made on sort of thick wool, I used 3.5mm needles. These will fit a newborn.



Cast on 20 stitches

Knit 15 rows in garter stitch (just plain knitting)

Now, for the pattern at the toe:
Knit 2, (purl 1, knit 1) 3 times, knit 5, (purl 1, knit 1) 3 times, knit 1
Next row - (knit 1, purl 1) 4 times, knit 4, (purl 1, knit 1) 4 times

Continue with that two row pattern until you've knit 5 rows of each. Am I making sense? Do the first row, then the second row, and then teh first row again until you've got 5 of each.

Now, knit 2 stitches together for the whole row.

Purl the next row.

And knit 2 stithes together for the whole row again.

Now, just like with the hat, sew up the slipper. Here, the tail of wool you're ending with will stitch up the top of the slipper and the tail of wool you had hanging at the beginning will stitch up the heel.

Please let me know of these instructions made sense.  Smiley
