1  Amigurumi Bunny (Pattern link added) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Nightowl on: September 24, 2007 12:53:01 PM
After finishing my granny square blanket, I had some leftover yarn.  I have wanted to try my hand at an amigurumi, so I found a pattern and gave it a shot.  Here is my bunny!



The original pattern had some errors, so I "fixed" them so it would work.  He is not perfect, but I love him!

Pattern added a few posts below!

3  Crochet bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by Nightowl on: August 29, 2007 05:52:12 PM
So, after a very long hiatus, I am back to Craftster.  YAY!

I have been teaching myself to crochet, but I get help from my cousin over the phone/email (she is in the US and I am in Canada).

This is actually my third FO, the other two I will also post soon.  The yarn is Patons SWS in Natural Blue, generously given to me by my cousin.  I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook.

This is the link to the pattern:
http://patternsbydot.blogspot.com/2006/02/little-gadabout-bag.html

And here is my bag in all its glory.  It is pretty small (about the size of a can of pop).


Things I learned from this project:
1.  I learned how to do a circular object by crocheting back and forth.
2.  I learned how to do reverse half-double crochet.  That was challenging!
3.  Mistakes are a "design feature" Wink and to not get too upset by them.

5  Re: ATC-along, everyone! **FEBRUARY's theme is "CHANCE". Post on Fridays!!!" in Craftalongs by Nightowl on: February 19, 2006 08:09:15 PM
Gah!  Sorry this is late, I forgot to upload my pic before I went away for the weekend.  Anyway, here they are:



The first one is pretty self explanatory; different sayings with the word chance.

The second one, I let chance play a part.  I cut up some greeting cards and randomly picked six pieces.  I then incorporated them into my atc.  I like this one.  This one is inspired by an artist in the paper forums here on craftster.  Sorry, I can't remember her name!

Everyones cards are fabulous!  Creative, artistic and different.

Nice job Nushybum.  I really like the composition and the colour.  Very effective!

Hey there!  I want to be second to post  Wink  Can't let Nushybum have all the fun.  Here is my ATC for the week:



The title is "Chance or Fate".  When we are standing at one spot in our lives, there are many directions we can go.  Is it Chance or Fate as to which direction we go?

Made with: handmade arrow stamp, watercolours, acrylics.

7  Are slippers clothing? Well, here they are anyway... in Shoes: Completed Projects by Nightowl on: February 09, 2006 06:41:46 PM
I wasn't too sure if this is the right forum for slippers, but I thought, well, slippers are clothing for feet, right? Wink

When my DH bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas, I asked him what he wanted me to make him.  He said "slippers".  Ummm... I am a very novice sewer, but I thought; "Well, what the heck. I'll give it a try".  This is what I came up with (no pattern either I might add)...



Outside is denim, inside is polar fleece.  Please ignore the crappy heel finishing; I had some sizing issues.

Action shot, coming right up!



He next wants me to make him a suit! Roll Eyes Cheesy

8  First project: a little pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Nightowl on: February 09, 2006 06:07:38 PM
Hello!  This my first official post of something "crafty".  My lovely DH got me a wonderful sewing machine for Christmas, and I am just learning to use it.  After practicing a bit, I made this, a little pouch or coin purse. Yup, I meant that button to be like that; I thought it would look like it was flying.



Things I learned:
1. Do not stretch polar fleece when sewing, or you get wonky edges (note flap curve; was not meant to be curved!)
2. Polar fleece is a bit hard to work with, but doesn't fray
3. I love automatic buttonholers!

Close up of button:



So what d'ya think?
