21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My B-Day Tank Top UPDATED with link to Kitty Skull & bones Pattern on: August 02, 2008 05:35:59 PM
So today is mine and my godson's b-day so I made myself a tank top to show off at their house. They were surprised I had made something for myself lol. Well anyways here is me modeling my b-day tank:

and here I am showing off the graph on it:

instead of a regular skull and bones it's a kitty(no kitties were harmed in the making of this graph)I found the person who is responsible for this awesome graph. Her name is Arlette and here is the link to the pattern: http://sucka-sc.arlette.us/
 This next pic my mom was shocked at how different my armwarmers were:

I told my mom that with variegated yarns it depends on where you finish off and start back up with it that makes it look that way. This next pic I loved it and I had to show it off lol:

Yes that is duct tape over my mouth and thank goodness it's not the old school kind or else I would've had sticky stuff on my mouth, but it did take my lipstick off lol. My god son turned 4 today but he was not a happy camper, he had a fever. He said he wants to wait until he is happy and feeling better to open his gift from me. He also gave me strict orders not to post a pic of his scrap greens 9 point rr so sorry everyone I can't show it yet, I was going to open it and take pics but I can't. Children gotta love em. The armwarmer pattern I got from here in a crochet along by CMFoster but I sewed them closed instead of adding the thumbhole.Here is the link for the armwarmers:

The tank I just made a rectangle then added 11 rows of dc's for the bottom and added buttons in the back. Well do ya like my b-day tank top? Any comments would be appreciated.
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / What I've been working on come take a look*IMG Heavy* on: June 04, 2008 11:45:29 PM
Okay here are the things I've been working on. First off is a outfit for my 5 yr old god daughter Lucy:

next is a outfit for my friend's daughter is California who is 16 mos old:

I don't know if you can see the soakers underneath or not but here is the pic:

here is a blanket I am working on for myself when I have a little girl of my own one day:

and here is another blanket I am working on for a friend who is due in a few months with a girl:

and here are a couple of halter's I made for my FGM's twin girl's:

and here is an outfit I made for Lucy's Dora doll the pics show the button in the front:

and it could be worn the other way around as well:

Now for the info:
1. Lucy's outfit is found at this link:
http://www.christinascrochethaven.com/candy_halter_top.htm
and it is made with Red Heart SS in Pink Camo and Red Heart SS in Aran with a H hook.
2. The halter top for my friend's daughter is no longer available online but the soaker pattern is from a site called www.dandeliondreamers.com the skirt I did myself though she has a couple of skirt patterns as well but they were kind of taking me too long so I just a did a row of dc's and then a row of one dc in the next 3 dc's then ch1, sk next st and so on. Both were made with Bernat Pink Camo and a H and I hook for the skirt.
3. The blanket I am working on for when I have a baby girl one day is made with Joann's Sensations yarn in pink and a J hook. My FGM gave me this yarn and it is so soft. The pattern comes from a lady on Crochetville named Aggie May and it's a 9 point rr.
4. This blanket is made with Bernat Baby Coordinates in Baby Pink which is the light pink color and Sweet Pink which is the dark pink color and a J hook as well. The pattern for this can be found at this link: http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977275501.
5. The halter tops for the twins is another pattern that is no longer online but it's called "Girly Girl Halter". The bottom of the halters I did myself which is just V stitches. The yarn for the Turquoise and purple colored one is self stripping cotton yarn and the yellow wasn't. I used a H hook on both.
6. Dora's outfit I made up myself andit too is self stripping cotton yarn as well made with a J hook.
Well what do you all think?
23  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Piggy I got to test for djonezgirlz on: May 15, 2008 04:25:39 PM
I was lucky enough to be able to test this pattern for djonezgirlz. It's a cute little piggy, here he is sitting down:

and here he is side ways:

and here he is leaning on my remote which I had to use to hold him up b/c he has a big head lol:

I used Red Heart SS in pink and a F hook and if I didn't have to go to work when I started this, it would have only taken me a day but duty called and I had to stop and pick it back up when I got home. This pattern is easy to follow and read and the pics at the end that shows how to join the legs are awesome. Thanks djonezgirlz for letting me test this pattern.
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Summer Fun Halter with added skirt and Lucy modeling *IMG Heavy* on: April 11, 2008 04:55:01 PM
Okay I got to test this halter called 'Summer Fun Halter':

the back:

Now I made a skirt to go with it:

So today I took Lucy to get her 4 yr old pics taken at Wally World(Wal-Mart) and here is what her package pose looks like. Well her pose is much better the this one, I took this one with my phone:

Now here she is at my house in her outfit this is the front:

this is the back of it:

here she is eating some candy:

and finally one of her showing off:

That halter only took me almost three days working on it in between work. The skirt I made in the 2 days I was off from work. It has shorts underneath it then I did 4 rows of Hdc's then I did two rows of V stitches and 5 dc shells of purple over the shorts. For the shorts I used a H hook and the skirt I used a J hook as well as a J hook for the halter. I used Sugar n Cream for both the top and skirt. For anyone interested in the halter pattern here is the link to the etsy shop for it:

25  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Goth Easter Bunny on: March 24, 2008 07:14:21 AM
Okay here's my goth bunny I've been working on. He's such a cutie but he hates taking pics though. Here he is:

and here he is standing up:

I got this pattern off etsy by a lady named Kristie and here is the link to her etsy shop where I got this pattern http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=26966 he is part of a setcalled 'Floppy Friends' due to pellets being in his hands, feet and body. I used Red Heart SS in black, white, and zebra and I used an F hook. Her patterns are all awesome and easy to follow. The reason his eyes are purple came from a anime show I like called Naruto and two of my fav characters have purple eyes so I decided to make his that way. Well whatcha think any comments are appreciated.
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lucy and Sierra's Easter Dresses (IMG Heavy) on: March 22, 2008 01:15:55 PM
Okay here are my two youngest god daughter's Easter dresses I made them. Here is Lucy's:

here is Sierra's:
Here is Lucy striking a pose:

here is Sierra striking a pose:
an here they are together:

I made sure to let their mom kow that Sierra has to wear a shirt under her top lol. The pattern for Lucy's outfit can be found at www.lullabiesandlace.com and the outfit is called 'Cables of Winter Skirt Ensemble' you can either get the infant or tot version. I made her's with a H hook and Bernat Pink Camo yarn. Sierra's top was a pattern I got to test and the skirt came from this link: http://www.christinascrochethaven.com/speckled_denim_skirt.htm I just added a couple of more rows due to Sierra bein seven and a little taller and I used a H hook instead of a G. I also added 3 more rows at the top and took the elastic and folded the rows over it then whip stitched it together. I used Red Heart SS in Navy for Sierra's outfit. It's good b/c she can wear it to school seeing as that's part of her uniform colors. The were happy to know they were getting another Easter this year from me. I hate that I couldn't make my godson anything but Easter crept up fast this year. Well whatcha think? Any comments good or bad is appreciated.
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hoodie for my godson *IMG Heavy* on: March 09, 2008 06:38:08 PM
Okay I always bring my god daughter's things over the house and not my god son. The last time I brought them something and not him he pointed to himself and said, 'Momma Dee where's mine, where's Bernie's?'. So this time I decided I was going to make him something and I made him this hoodie:

here is the back of it:

here is the little man in his hoodie:

his hands in his pocket:

and finally from the side showing off his curls, I love his curls:

I got the pattern from www.crochetgarden.com in the patterns section titled 'Nordic River Hoodie' his is a size 3T with a I hook and Red Hert in Camo and black. He was so excited to find that this time I had soemthing for him and not his sisters lol. Well whatcha think? 
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Feminine Wristwamers with a twist(take a look inside) on: February 01, 2008 08:49:41 AM
Okay I got the pattern from this site:
http://www.innerchildcrochet.com/patterns/feminine_wristwarmers.html
here is my version I did:

and here is one on me I needed the other hand to hold the camera:


Now I wanted mine longer so I kept crocheting in the round until this is what I have:

now here they are on me:

and this:


The pattern calls for a chain of 16 but my wrist needed 20. Then there are 9 rows then 3 rows of increases for the flaired part in which I added on more row for that extra flair lol. Then you do a edging. Well I wanted mine longer so I after I finished I joined the yarn again and added 25 more rows to each one to make them longer. I used Red Heart Super Saver and a K hook. It took about a half hour for the short version but a little longer for the long version. Well any comments is appreciated.
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Burrito Blanket on: January 09, 2008 09:01:56 PM
I made this blanket for a friend whose daughter will be 1 this month:

it's 36 inches across here is a close up of the edging:

the edging took forever and a day to finish but I like how it looks. I got the pattern from a book called, 'Crochet for Babies' by Bobbie Matela. I used a I hook and Caron Simply Soft but the pattern calles for a G hook and Red Heart Baby Econo. The blanket came out the same size though. It works up pretty fast though lol. Well what do ya think?
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blanket for my co worker's grandson on: December 24, 2007 05:38:44 PM
Here is a blanket I made for my co worker's grandson. It's not straight it's kind of wonky but I guess it's okay. It's his first xmas and present from me:

it measure 50 in across by 36 in wide and it is big. Excuse the messy room and Heely's in the background(those are my fav shoes lol). Here I am holding it up:

I kind of hate that I stretched it out as I was holding it but of course it didn't stay stretched though. I got the pattern from the Lionbrand site called "Baby Blocks Throw" and I used Caron Simply Soft and a H hook so mine came out bigger then the pattern called for which I wanted it bigger since the little man willbe 1 next month. Well what do ya think?
