1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my version of dipees and wipees on: February 14, 2007 06:38:41 PM
several years ago my coworker gave me 2 sets of well worn 70s sheets. she'd grown up with them and lived with them for literally decades. during a move she wanted to pare down her stuff. she gave me the sheets to craft with.

fast forward to 2007. she is mom to a 2-year-old AND has another bun in the oven. she commissioned a little bag to carry a few dipers and a packet of wipes. (i had never seen such a bag, nor did i know you could purchase wipes in a pocket-sized container.) now she has PART of those beloved sheets back... albeit in a brand new format. i wasn't the inventor of this design. there's a whole company who makes these cute "dipees and wipees" bags.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / too-tight tee --> tee with crazy quilt inset on: December 23, 2006 05:52:51 AM
my first post in the recon clothing board!

very excited about my latest crafty endeavor:

i bought a small tee but needed a medium and didn't want to trek all the way back to target to exchange the $9 purchase. SO, i pulled out some teeny tiny fabric scraps from various  past projects and formed them into a long "crazy quilt" strip. then i cut up the middle to insert the pieced panel. i'm not TOTALLY happy with the fit at the top of the collar. a bit of the tee folds over on either side of the panel. i think it's cause the fabric panel is heavier than the actual tee.


4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / bunningham the bedfellow on: November 05, 2006 01:58:13 PM
my first crocheted critter. it's bunningham the bedfellow!! all components of the outside of this project--yarn, buttons, bead, embroidery floss--are from my stash. the stuffing is from mom's stash. i added a pompom tail to make him more bunny-like.


5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / unseamly sweater advice on: September 27, 2006 06:35:25 PM
this is supposed to be the first 6-and-a-half rows of my unseamly sweater. i've started and restarted about 5 times. i can't decide which size to make. (the medium looks too big--but the measurements for the small might be tight. methinks a small-and-a-half would be best.) biggest problem, however, is the shape. kinda hard to tell in this photo, but, the chain base (at the bottom of the photo) is narrower than the rows of V-stitches. the sweater is starting to "arc" outward.

why is this happening?

should i carry on with the pattern, under the assumption that i can block the heck outta the FO to have a proper sweater?
or, should i try to make my chain base even looser? (am already loose as a goose on that chain base.)
or should i frog it all and use the yarn for the new "sweet" sweater at www.crochetme.com ?

advice much appreciated!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / gorgeous knit sweater pattern--but i wanna crochet it instead on: September 25, 2006 07:45:49 PM
i just stumbled upon this lovely sweater pattern:
http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item.cfm/2367447/3289215
(actually, all of the patterns on this site are amazing!)

i love the asymmetrical lacy detail and the "poufy" sleeves. but, i don't knit. is there a way to acheive something like this in crochet? can i turn this knit pattern into a crochet pattern? or, is there a crocheted sweater out there that's similar?
7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / FO: short 'n sweet! on: August 13, 2006 02:48:00 PM
my short 'n sweet is finally done (all but the blocking, that is!). thanks again, lavonne3ca, heha, and craftykate for your words of wisdom on that tricky front increase. lavonne, i truely love your design!!! i cannot wait to wear my bolero to work this week!!





i used size F hook to make the medium and used 6.5 balls of debbie bliss cotton dk. i made the bolero body a bit longer and the sleeves shorter than the pattern in the book. those of you familiar with the pattern will notice i am accidentally wearing it inside out. oh well! goes to show what a versatile design this is!
