I love the colors of the fabric you choose. They're really cute--now I wish I had a sewing machine so I can make similar bags! What did you use to reinforce the sides of the bags so they stay up straight?

FANTASTIC!! I love the exposed rib cage...adds a little something something to the whole idea!

I love the blowfish! You're so incredibly talented..makes me want to throw some paint on my boring white bathroom walls.

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I wore it to class the other day, and it was surprisingly comfy and warm (esp with the cami underneath). Great pattern that is pretty well written once you figure out the gauge.

Hey Shine,

Wow, seems like we are both suffering greatly due to this sweater. To answer you question...Yes you need to redo it.  Embarrassed

I'm going to assume you're using the J hook, but I would do the bottom chain with an L hook, then switch the the J hook or whatever you're using. And make sure that chain LOOSE on the L hook. You can fix the bottom with picots or another row on the bottom later. I made that same mistake the first time I tried making this sweater.

I'm stuck on the sleeves...sigh

That's so cute! The colors are fabulous together, and I love the modification on the monkey blanket. Great job! This is definitely a bookmark for me!

Finally done! This took me forever due to gauge problems, but when I finally figured it out, it wasn't hard to make.  Roll Eyes  I made it in Jo Sharp DK Cotton in Carmen, and I found the yarn to be a little difficult to work with since it threaded apart easily (I don't recommend it, but it was $2/ball on clearance). 

I'm not sure if I like the ribbon (and it's too wide, 1/2 inch, not 1/4 inch)--it's a cream color, which isn't bad with the red. The ribbon really helps to stabilze the collar. Sorry for the grainy pic, I really need to clean my mirror and fix my lighting.

Those are gorgeous, I love the blue with the yellow lining.

I agree with the pricing, but you might go towards the $60 end since they're so well made. I'd maybe go up to $70 for a bag like that.

If you were to change to another fiber lik a light suede (which I think you can still sew) rather than microfiber, you could probably charge up to $150 to $200 for a bag in exactly the same pattern, especially with that lovely, expensive looking lining.  Big bags are so in right now!

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone. I changed the name since I couldn't elminate the thread. Perhaps "unisex" is a more appropriate title for the descripition of this hat.

I did this a few weeks ago and girlified it so I could wear it instead. I had some orange wool yarn left over from making the one-skein scarf, so I started the beanie...and promptly got bored with the design. I threw in some puff stitches and worked in the back loops above the stripes. I also had some green yarn left over, so I threw it in. The result: one groovy hat with a color combo that actually worked!
