1  Re: Slipper Boots! So toasty warm! in Crochet: Completed Projects by SpookShowBaby on: August 29, 2012 09:58:36 AM
These are awesome!! Did you do anything to the soles to make them non slippery? We have hardwood floors and I would bust my ass in less than five seconds. Also, if you just scrunched them down, not folded, would they look like those cute scrunchy boots?

I didn't put anything on the bottom to make them non-slip. We mostly have carpet, but I'm sure you could easily make them non-slip. I put mine on and scrunched them down to see what they would do. I imagine if you made them with a looser fit, they would scrunch better. I like mine a little snugger.  Grin

Fabulous! What kind of yarn did you use? Seems like the perfect choice for a pair of cozy slippers.

I used almost four balls of the Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Aspen Tweed to get the height that I did. At 2.97 a ball at Wal-Mart. Not too bad.

3  Slipper Boots! So toasty warm! in Crochet: Completed Projects by SpookShowBaby on: January 23, 2012 09:51:50 AM

The pattern these boots were derived from is here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0


I made a pair of these slippers for my mother a while back: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0

...But when starting a pair for myself, I wasn't crazy about the style...I wanted something that covered more of my foot. So, I started these slippers using the above pattern and a super bulky yarn and boy did they get away from me. Instead of stopping at the "Mary Jane" look I just kept going. They come to just below my knee, but you can also fold them down for more of a bootie type slipper. They are super warm and cozy and with the bulky yarn they work up super quick. While working on them my sister joked, "you could make thigh high boot slippers"...And I started thinking, what about just going all the way and making leggings??? That would be a hoot!

Anyhoo, I don't see any leggings in my future but I will definitely keep making slipper boots.





I forgot to mention that they look super super cute worn with leggings. While wearing them with my leggings, I even got a "wow, those look cool" from my hubby who doesn't even notice if I get a hair cut and color.  Tongue

4  The Rubik's Cube Transformed into the Steelers Cube! in Completed Projects by SpookShowBaby on: December 15, 2010 10:43:01 PM
I hope this is the right place to post this. I got the idea for this from this crafty crafter here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144080.0

My dad is a big Steelers fan (as am I) and one of the highlights of my week is after the Steelers game when my dad calls me (he lives in Ohio, I'm in Utah) and we discuss the game. So, I thought I would make something for him that he could set on his side table to remind him of me until our weekly phone call.

With money being really tight this year this worked out perfect. Thanks to my son donating his Rubik's Cube to me, it didn't cost me a thing.

I am really pleased with how this turned out.


I just peeled the stickers off of the cube, measured them, printed out pictures to size, cut into measured squares and decoupaged them on to the cube. Viola!

5  ZOMG!!!! IT'S A CREEPER (Minecraft) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by SpookShowBaby on: December 15, 2010 10:13:11 AM
I found this sneaky little guy hiding in our liquor today. He nearly got me!



He jumped out at me and I heard a SSSSSSSSSSSS!


Then he apparently lost interest in me....He must be an Aries (like me)


Because he turned around....
And headed back to the liquor....Whewwwww!....Close call!

Ok, I got the first part done....Let me start out by saying what a great job you did writing up this pattern. Very easy to follow! Thank you! (and thanks for sharing it with us)

I'm not real crazy about the colors I'm using, but it's what I had on hand and I was just too excited (impatient) to get started that I didn't want to take the time to "search" for bags.  Tongue

I followed the feedback and chained 28 instead of the 22. It made it longer than I thought it would (9 1/4 inches). Next time I will only chain 22. This is just my personal preference on length so I'll get a snugger fit of the items I plan to carry inside. I did 20 rows instead of 22 and the height is perfect for me. I didn't have any problems at all, due to your great directions, and can't wait to work on the next installment!

Here's my work....I was so into it, I didn't think to take progress pics...just finished ones.  Undecided

Here are mine! I loved the way they turned out. I just screwed up an important step and that was the squeezing them out on wax paper. I didn't realize they needed to be stretched out and chilled not touching one another. After I squeezed them out, I chilled them and they became all stuck together. Still got a great reaction over them at the party though!!!!  Also, my straws were very skinny. I think I will try to find some fatter ones next time.


They look fantastic...I love the way the cream and jello separated....mine never seems to do that. Did you use regular whipping cream or heavy whipping cream?

8  Blood Worms....Yum! in Halloween Decor and Parties by SpookShowBaby on: October 12, 2010 08:13:20 AM
I just did a practice run for my halloween snack/food for a party this year to make sure I could pull off something new I'm doing...I thought these turned out pretty good. Icky, but yummy. Not only do they look like worms, they feel like them too!

I'm really pleased with how these turned out!!!...I wanted something that looked really old and damaged. I love that each one is so different from the next.....I blurred out my address on the photo's but you get the idea....All it took was a printer, paper, coffee, a lighter and an oven...
