1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Linguine bunnybuns... From outer space! *With pattern* on: May 09, 2010 04:35:28 AM
Thanks a bunch for the pattern, it's wonderful! Here's my bunny, done yesterday, in self-striping yarn. (It seems to give him a mismatched, raggedy look, but let's pretend it's endearing, yes?)



Oh, I also gave him a fluffy pompom tail, hehe.

They're really lovely! My favourite is Jingles, 'cause I love rainbows too. Cheesy

And, I have made some stuff with a cardboard loom. Quite simple but a tad time-consuming. (Or perhaps that was because I didn't have a needle... Tongue )

Really nice job.

Wow. Not only the dresses, even the sites are jaw-droppingly amazing. Love the guided navigation and cute images. ^_^ Kudos for the research and experimenting that you did, even writing super-neat instructions for yourself!

...And those cool tissue paper pom-poms! Cheesy Any chance of a tutorial for that? ^^

Woohoo, thank God I found this tutorial, because I desperately needed a clutch for my grad dinner and made this at the 11th hour:



I made the bottom round instead of pointy, and attached a bracelet thing so I won't accidentally drop the bag every 5 seconds. *butterfingers* ^^;
5  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Inga's Hkelbeutel ~ German Granny Square Bag CAL on: August 05, 2008 08:27:52 AM
Hey everybody. Smiley I crocheted this bag as well, only with some modifications due to... er, my lack of yarn. I've never done granny squares before, but it turned out to be a great TV-watching project. XD Because I used cotton twine, the squares turned out big so I did only 2 rounds per square. Wink And I used wooden handles instead of crocheting them.


(More info on the Flickr page)


It's currently unlined, although I'm pretty sure I'll have to line it, considering the size of the holes. I thought of using some denim from a cut-up pair of jeans, but that might just add more weight to this already heavyish bag... =X

That looks really cool! I love it, but is it uncomfortable on your wrist?

It's not uncomfortable, but not as comfortable as a leather strap or anything. ^^; I think it feels like a bangle.

I have been thinking about making a watch band....looks lovely but maybe too complicated for me at this stage.  Thanks for sharing!!

As a beginner wire-crocheter, I find it very uncomplicated! Grin It's really forgiving and you can just shape the wire into place if you get uneven stitches or something. Smiley Much easier/quicker than my bead-woven straps, or safety pin straps. Tongue

Thanks everybody! ^_^ The wire was 0.3mm jewelry wire I found at an art store, didn't buy it for this project but it was quite nice to work with. Smiley

My friend bought the watch face for me from the US (I can never find such cool stuff in my country! Sad ), it was super nice of her. Cheesy
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Crocheted wire watch strap on: July 16, 2008 09:56:31 PM
A while ago I've never even heard of crocheting with beads (until I came across crafty_dame's necklaces), let alone crocheting wire with beads. Lips sealed But when I had to make a new watch strap, I decided to try this technique and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Smiley (I don't make/wear jewelry, but I make/wear watch straps. Haha.)



A lot of it was trial and error, eg. the length, amount/density of beads, what kinda stitches/how to crochet, fastener, uh ... everything, basically. Grin The strap isn't too rough on the skin, although it feels a little wire-y still. Tongue But I like how it looks and am glad I actually have a wearable watch now. Cheesy (Lost one watch, and the other's strap was falling apart...)

Coolness! I've seen somebody do this on TV years ago, but she went too quick so I didn't even remember the technique. I think she made it into a cushion cover. Smiley

Thanks a lot for posting, will try it soon.

I realy like your gloves is there a pattern somewhere for these???

Oh, yes, I was going to ask you to just click on the image, as I've linked the pattern on the Flickr page, but I misspelled the URL in that post. ^^; The pattern is from crochetme! Cheesy
