1  Re: hooded towels- NOW with tutorial! :D (lots of pics!!!) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by aztecr3ina on: December 02, 2009 11:26:00 PM
Hi! I used your tute almost a year ago to make towels for my son and wanted to say a big THANK YOU for posting it! I came searching for it again to make more towels for my new nephew. A couple of photos of the ones I made a year ago:

I made the hood a little wider to accommodate the froggy face.

My son had this book and I had some orange felt. This is what happened.

And, the obligatory kid-using-craft-item shot.

The new ones I plan on making involve Elmo and a monkey. I'll post photos when they're done!

2  Magic 8 Baby in Halloween Costumes by aztecr3ina on: November 09, 2007 10:37:45 PM
OK, it's a bit late, but I wanted to show you all how I dressed my pregnant belly up for Halloween. Original idea was to attach one of those chest-burster aliens to the front of a shirt, but I ran out of time. Maybe next pregnancy...

The response refers to when he's actually thinking of coming out.  Grin

I made four different responses to change throughout the day or whenever anyone asked me a question.The iron-on came out a bit greenish instead of black/gray, but it worked anyhow!
Thanks for letting me show it off!

3  Re: A Very Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by aztecr3ina on: June 18, 2007 05:55:34 PM
OK, I've been browsing through the gallery and all the dishcloths look incredible! I've finally gotten off my lazy butt long enough to post pics of the beautiful ones I got from crazy_grl. Check it out:

The orange one looks pinkish here, but it's a really nice orangey color that matches my kitchen.

Here's a closeup of the bunny that she made for my baby-to-come! We don't know what it's going to be yet, so the neutral color and the bunny are good choices.

There's awesome stitching on this one.

And here's what crazy_grl got (she didn't have a digi cam available).

I made her a hotpad to match the dishcloth and included some treats for her furbabies!

Thanks for looking!

4  Aloha-ish fat bottom in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by aztecr3ina on: April 29, 2007 10:57:07 AM
For some reason, the combination of colors and the flower remind me of Hawaii. Here she is:

My first attempt at lining anything crocheted. The gathering and lining were done by machine. This was also my first try with a purse snap (if you look really close you can find it) which was surprisingly easy. The pocket was a last-minute addition as you can tell because the pattern doesn't match. Um, I meant to do that.

I knew there was a reason I loved this comic strip.

6  What to do when you have car trouble? Amigurumi! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by aztecr3ina on: January 08, 2007 11:09:58 AM
Me and the honey had to make a three-hour drive to see family for the holidays, so, naturally, I took along a potential project. An hour from our goal, we stopped to get gas and the car battery took the opportunity to croak. While hubby was waiting for a jump and buying a new battery, I took the opportunity to whip up this little guy who made a very nice Christmas gift for my grandmother who's a frogaphile.

Now, Mr. Froggy, you know better than to sit on the dashboard while we're driving!

That's better.

I also made this for my sister:

It's sort of like the Stripes and Stripes scarf from SNB, but I gave it more rows and changed the color scheme and stripe pattern by using this.

7  What the heck is wrong with this? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by aztecr3ina on: December 15, 2006 12:52:55 AM
The past few times I have crocheted in the round (following a pattern both times), my object has turned out sorta lumpy. It is round, but instead of being smooth like a mushroom cap, it gets these dents in it where I've done the increase so it looks like a rounded flower.

Here's what it looks like:

(Sorry the photo isn't better, my camera isn't working right.) Can you see where it gets puffy between the increases?

If anyone can help me with this, I'll be eternally grateful.

8  Spring in winter ... er, summer in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by aztecr3ina on: September 05, 2006 01:06:34 AM
It may not actually be cold enough for a scarf and hat yet, but my coworker (who requested this set) and I work in a very chilly office.

The edges of the scarf turned out a bit ruffly (even after decreasing the number of stitches and loosening my tension!) but that may be because I used Lion Brand Homespun.

A closeup of the flower.

And the very cool button that attaches the flower that happened to match the yarn.

Comments? Criticism? Think the two colors look funky together?

9  Be gentle with me...it's my first time in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by aztecr3ina on: May 06, 2006 11:22:40 PM
First time posting and first amigurumi project. I just had to make Jacques for my honey since he loves sea turtles so much.
Jacques basking in the sun:

It's very important to tan both sides:
