1  Cami in Crochet: Completed Projects by Megs on: June 28, 2008 09:31:16 AM
Here is a Cami I made myself, I used Jaeger Roma yarn in Lulworth.




I got the pattern from here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67176.0. I love this pattern, it was very easy to make and I have already made on for my 13yr and currently working on a smaller one for my little 5yr. you can see the rest of the pictures here http://www.flickr.com/photos/7766458@N02/sets/72157605723657438/. There are pictures of my 13yr Cami wip on there too, even though its finished now and I am working on the next one. Will hopefully get more pictures of the finished one and the little wip up soon.

2  *Updated with Tut* My Little Piggie Pirate in Crochet: Completed Projects by Megs on: October 14, 2007 07:36:32 PM
When I asked my 4yr little girl what she wanted to be for Halloween she replied "a piggie pirate" (it was something she saw on Dora the Explorer show) after telling me for a hour what she wanted, I set to work and this is what i came up with.

Here is just the hat, the eye patch can be lifted up so she can see out of both eyes. The skull is from www.http.com//yeenmachine.blogspot.com/
She even has a little piggie tail.

Notes:
If eyes wont stay open, take a pipe cleaner or some wire and in the inside of mask sew them to the eye making it say open, make sure to put a lot of stitches at the ends of wire to prevent them from sticking in the side of eyes.Add eyebrowns to your mask to give it some character, just use black yarn and embroider a line above the eyes

Ok done just about with Daylee's (my 4yr's) Dora Head.
I still need to hot glue her hair down just so it wont
come out when she messes with her, hehe.




these are the changes I did, (not so good at writing patterns yet)
hope i don't confuses anyone to much.

Eyes:
 
  Outer Part (white)
   1. Ch 2, 3 sc in 2nd sc from hook, ch 1, turn
   2. 2 sc in each sc, ch 1, turn
   3. sc in first sc, hdc in the 2nd sc, 2 dc in the 3rd sc,
      hdc in the 4th sc, hdc and sc in 5th sc, sl st in last sc.
      finish off leaving good size tail to sew to head.

  Inner Part (Brown)
   1. Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd sc from hook
      (using magic ring 6 sc)
      finish off, leaving tail to sew to white part of eye.

 
Mouth:

   1. Ch 9, sc in 2nd sc from hook, hdc in next sc, dc in next sc,
       2 dc in next sc, dc in next sc, hdc in next sc, hdc in next sc,
       sc in next sc, sl st in last sc.
       Finish off leaving a long tail to sew onto head
 

Hair:

   wrap yarn around cardboard or cd case,
   then sew onto head, Hot glue down so not to be pulled out by
   little ones.

I now have this feeling that she is going to want Boots to go with Dora, lol
