1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / DC=Dopple Crochet? on: February 21, 2011 03:19:53 PM
This is my first time crocheting, and the pattern I am using says that DC stands for "Dopple Crochet". I thought it was supposed to mean "Double Crochet". I've Googled and can't find anything on "Dopple Crochet". Do you guys think they really mean "Double Crochet"? I am making an infant hat. I went ahead and assumed it was Double Crochet, but it only says to DC 12 and form a ring. I did that and 12 is way, way too short to be the circumference of a hat. I am using the exact things the pattern calls for. Size 5mm hook, & Bernat Soft Boucle Bulky 5 yarn.

This is the beginning of the pattern:
Chain 3
Row 1: Chain 3, 12 DC to form ring, connect with an SS

Can anyone help me out here? Thanks!!!!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chocolate Mint Diaper Bag on: November 29, 2006 11:40:48 PM
Title: Chocolate Mint

I made this for my sister. She just had her baby last week.

Here is the bag from the front...



This picture shows the side and back. The brown line across the back is a pocket.



This is a pacifier holder attached to the side of the bag. The strap has velcro on it so it can be removed and put on a key chain.



This is the pacifier holder opened...



When you lift the flap of the bag, you see this picture. It has a tissue dispenser (for those inevitable runny noses!), a pad and pen holder, a key chain clip, and a cell phone pocket. You can also see the magnetic snap that closes the bag.



This is the inside. It has a huge pocket on one side, a huge zipper pocket on the other side, 3 pleated pockets, and 2 elastic pockets.



This is another picture of the inside with stuff actually in it just to show how huge this thing is!



I also made a matching changing pad with clear vinyl.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chocolate Mint Diaper Bag - lots of pictures on: September 09, 2006 09:52:53 PM
I am so proud of this bag! It is by far the most complicated thing I've ever done. It's not perfect by any means, but I'm still proud! I started out making it for myself (I have an 18 month old and a 2 month old). Then my sister got pregnant, so I made it for her instead. So when I initially designed it, I was designing it as my perfect diaper bag. It has just about everything I think diaper bag should have. And it looks a lot more stylish than most diaper bags. It is a messenger style bag using outdoor fabric so that it resists stains and repels water. I named it "Chocolate Mint" because that's what the colors remind me of.

Now that I've made this bag, I know what can be done better/easier when I make one for myself!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / How to transfer photo on to tile? on: August 20, 2006 10:14:17 PM
I've been lookiing for a way to transfer a photo on to a tile. I have this image in my head of our kitchen when we eventually build our dream house (still years away). I want to have a tile border all the way around just above the counters. I want every few tiles to be a photograph that creates a timeline of our lives. At the start of the border would be a baby picture of both of us, then move on to major events in our lives (weddings, babies, etc.). In the meantime, I think they would make really good gifts.

So, my question is, does anyone know how to transfer a photograph on to a tile? I don't want to use modge podge since I will be using them as actual tiles, not just in a frame. I found this web site: www.tilanofresco.co m. But this kit is on the expensive side and will only do a couple of tiles. Is there another way to do it?

TIA!

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Decoupage w/ photos on non-flat surface? on: February 19, 2006 08:31:22 PM
Hi all! When I was pregnant with my son, we did a belly cast. Well, now that he is about to turn one year old, I want to decoupage photos on the belly cast starting with the ultrasound up to pics from his 1 year birthday. My question is, since the belly cast is not a flat surface, the pictures will need to be able to conform to the cast. Will regular photo paper work for this, or should I print the pictures on a different type of paper? If so, what kind? If you want to see examples of what belly casts look like, go here: http://www.proudbody.com/bellycastgallery.htm.

TIA!

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Homemade Christmas!! on: December 19, 2005 05:45:22 PM
I havent posted on here in FOREVER. Mainly because with a new baby there isnt much time for crafting! Due to lack of money this year, it is a homemade Christmas! Im not completely done, but here is the bulk of what Ive made.

LIFESIZE BOARD GAME
Im really proud of this one. Its for my niece (7) and nephews (5 & 3). I completely came up with this on my own. It is painted on a 6 x 9 canvas drop cloth. The outside is a board game that has silly actions to do in each of the squares. The premise of the game is the kids roll the big fuzzy dice (not shown), walk to the correct square and complete the silly action. Then in the middle of the board is a giant checkerboard and a giant tic tac toe board. I made the checkers and the Xs and Os out of those foam sheets. I also printed up a nice instruction booklet and put it all inside a Tupperware-like container.

The whole board

ETCHED GLASSWARE
I used the well-known tutorial on Craftster to do these. These went to the guys in the family. On most of them I had a hard time getting a good picture.

For Mom - votives with her different names (Mom, Mimi, Rebekah)


For grandfather glasses with initials on one side and different names on the other. I thought these turned out really good


For FIL glasses with initials on one side and different names on the other.


For Dad glasses with initials on one side and animals on the other (he likes to hunt)


For grandparents vase with last name.


For brother glasses with initials on one side and card symbols on the other (he likes poker)


For sisters containers with different designs and names


BEADED BROOCHES
I used the following tutorials for these:
http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/Kid_Art_Project/Kid_art_bead_project/october2005_bead_project.html
http://beadjewelrymaking.com/Kid_Art_Project/Kid_art_bead_project/august2005_bead_project.html
http://beadjewelrymaking.com/Kid_Art_Project/Kid_art_bead_project/november2005_bead_project.html

I made about 8 of these (all 3 designs) for different females in the family. Once again, I had a hard time getting a good picture.





As you can see, Ive been busy, busy, busy! And Ive got more to go! Ill post the rest once I get them finished. Ive got until Wednesday night when family gets to town, so hopefully Ill be done by then!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Baby Announcements? on: February 18, 2005 10:31:25 AM
I am pregnant with my first baby and due March 14.  Grin I'd like to make my own baby announcements. I want something different and cute. I am going to include a picture (once he's here, of course!)  I am going to need to do 50-60 of them. I want to have as much of it done as possible before he gets here. Of course, the birth date, weight, height, etc. won't be able to be put in until he's here. Does anybody have any really cool ideas?
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Kids' Crafty Christmas Tree on: January 29, 2005 05:02:04 AM
This is very, very late, but I thought I'd show you all what we did with the kids in the family for Christmas. For my husband's side of the family we celebrated Christmas for a week during Thanksgiving. Since that is a long time for kids to be cooped up in a house, I brought a lot of fun activities for them to do. This was one of them and everybody loved it. The kids loved doing it, and the adults loved the end product! I started with two pieces of foam poster board, and cut them into identical tree shapes. Then I cut slots in them so that they could slide together and create a 3D tree (make sense?) Then I spray painted it green. I took all kinds of paper, glitter, foam stickers, colors, markers, etc. and we had a blast making ornaments to put on the tree. It turned out super cute!







Hopefully this will help some of you out next Christmas!

Lynn

P.S. If you're wondering about the funky boat steering wheel hanging on the wall, we were at a beach house, so everything in the house was beachy. Kind of a wierd feeling since we were celebrating Thanksgiving/Christmas!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue Satin Bag on: January 29, 2005 04:54:30 AM
This was a Christmas present for my niece (she's 6). I used fabric from a nightgown I had been given at my wedding shower that still had the tags on it (obviously I never wore it!) The only thing I had to buy was the beading, so thes was a super cheap present! And she loved it!

Purse:




I had trouble getting a good picture, so hopefully between the two you can get a good idea of what it looks like!

Niece opening it:


She loved it!

This was a Christmas present for my sister. I think it turned out really well! I got the handle from WalMart. I don't know if you can see it in the pictures, but it has two little lockets hanging off of it. I made the button out of beads and wire.

It was really simple, but I like it so much I wanted to keep it for myself!
