It took about 2 weeks to make, it would have been faster, but I dreaded sewing all those hearts together.
All in all, it came out cute. My sister (in the photo) now wants an Anti-Valentines scarf. With saying like Bite Me, Luv Sucks...... stuff like that. It's funny cause before they saw it every time I pick up a heart to write on it, I almost put those sayings on there.
My niece got the exact same shirt from her dad for Christmas, that my mom bought her months ago. It was also in the same size. But, he caught it on sale for 2 bucks (I know this because it still had the price tag on it). Great deal. But, kinda pointless to waste gas taking it back to the store. So with my crazy sewing, I stitched a line across the middle. Then, I crocheted a little skirt onto it.
I even added a little crocheted heart on the skirt to match the hearts all over the onesie.
Here are some hand warmers that I made the other day, with a last minute detachable flower.
When my mom saw them the first thing she said was,"What no flower, I'm surprised you didn't put a flower on them, you put flowers on everything." What can I say, Guilty as charged.
Thanks for Looking......
***Hey, guys here's what I did.. Hope it helps,its really simple. I have big wrist and my sister has tiny wrist, but we both can wear the same pair comfortably. I made them to fit me really snug. Let me warn you, they look extremely narrow and tiny. But, once I pu them on the stretched. But, remember I like them sugglie.
This the first time I am trying to write down what I did in a way so that others can make use or sense of it. Anyway, here goes.
Cute 'N Simple Hand Warmers
I used a size 5.5mm crochet hook.
Row 1: chain 26, then slip stitch into the first chain to form a circle.
Row 2-6: chain 2, dc into the next stitch, then dc into every stitch around, slip stitch onto the first dc to end the row.(these are the rows that cover your arm, so just add more rows here if you want them longer.)
Row 7-12: chain 2, then dc into the same stitch as the chain two, dc into every stitch around, slip stitch into the first dc to end the row. (these rows cover your hand , up to the knuckles. **Row 7 makes this part a wee bit bigger by adding the one stitch the beginning of the row)
Row 13: chain 2, dc around into every stitch, skipping the last three stitches, chain 3 loosely, then slip stitch into the first dc of the row. (This creates the thumb hole).
Row 14-15: chain 2, dc into every stitch, slip stitch into the first dc.
Be sure to weave in your ends... Thats it guys, leave a comment or message me if you have questions. I would love to see finish warmers. Happy crocheting, have fun...
What better way to jump start your holiday, than with a cheesy heart attack roll. Well, that's exactly what we woke up to Christmas morning. My mom made this one... I have seen Bacon and cheese rolls on the internet and even posted on here. Usually it only contains cheese n bacon hence the name. But, mommy dearest who loves potatoes with every meal and is not that fond of cheese, decided to add a bonus to the B 'n C Roll. Hash Browns... Ummmm..... Here's the finished Log of goodness...
Below is how it came to be:
Time to layer it up:
Roll it Up:
Then, Stick it back in the oven to melt the cheese,
Then Enjoy...Maybe I'll just eat salads for the rest of the week. Just a thought.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy 2009
***P.S. I forgot to mention before, we used a whole regular sized package of bacon.***
Don't you just love Fall? I so love it when the leaves change colors, the nice crisp air and of course all of the great pumpkin treats. I know you can have the pumpkin stuff year 'round, but you know it's just better in the fall/winter time.
So..... all that said here are two Pumpkin colored hats that I made for my niece. This first one is a Pumpkin Pie Hat...
Here's her mesh big girl Flower Hat....
I THINK THEY ARE ADORABLE!!!!! but, I guess that I'm a little biase.
My Cousin works for a big grocery chain and awhile back my mother gave her a small buggy. Resently she commented on how weird (but cute) it looks on her desk empty. So I took up the task of making miniature food for the buggie. Let me know if I should put this post in another forum.
There's a Crochet Apple, a Crochet Steak, 2 bags of Lime Potatoe Chips (her fave chips), a Mrs. Smith's Apple Pie, a Box of Green Tea and two magazines.
A close-up of the steak.
Here's a close-up of the apple.
***Anybody notice the crochet cactus that I gave her last year***
Here's a Mermaid that i made, she's completely acrylic yarn. I separated the 4 ply acrylic for the hair and added a few pieces of sparkly thread and novelty yarns to act a faux seaweed and things of that nature.
I even crocheted the rock.
This is one of my favorite creations........ Let me know what you think.
Hey, guys this is my second time posting. I always have problems upload my photos. Anyway, Here is a pizza scarf I made for my little sister for Christmas. I know, it was awhile ago but here it is. It's made out of Lionbrand Cotton Ease, and the roni's are made out of Vanna White yarn.
Delivery: This is how I gave it to her in the pizza box. (corny, I know)
Anyway I made this doll some time ago, actually last year. I have made quite a few since. But, alas she is my favorite, my "mini me".
I think that is the cutest poncho. She even has chubby thighs just like me..
She took about 2 weeks to make. That hardest part for me were the feet. But the hair took the longest to finish. My mother, who has always been an undiscovered photographer, took the photos. SAY CHESSE!!!
