11  beret and necklace in Crochet: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 03:27:34 PM
This is a beret made from a free online pattern that I can't locate anymore. Her website appears to be gone and I don't have a printed copy of the pattern, so I can't give her proper credit. Too bad, it was a great pattern cuz you could make any size from small infant to adult extra large, and you could get different looks by making it solid, or making each tier a different color, or by alternating colors to make it striped. It looks cute in school colors, and good in camo around the sides with a coordinating solid top.

This is a necklace crocheted with number ten crochet cotton and some little beads that were sold to me as bone, but feel remarkably like plastic.  Roll Eyes I just chainstitched, pulling down a bead every three or four inches of chain, until it was long enought to go back and forth as many times as I wanted, then used the fold-over type of findings on each end.

12  Various bead woven rings in Beads: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 03:00:03 PM
Some of these are from online instructions and some I just winged it; I don't really remember which are which. Embarrassed

Actually, there are two or three that are strung on memory wire. I'm sure you can tell which ones.

13  Brick stitch earrings, vintage bugle beads in Beads: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 02:55:24 PM
Guess the subject line says it all.  Cheesy The bugle beads came from a beaded purse reportedly from the sixties. It was all to pieces, but I did salvage the beads.

14  Macrame earrings and bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 02:48:37 PM
Here is a pair of crochet-cotton macrame earrings with faux pearls which I made some time ago:

Here are a pair of waxed linen and a pair of hemp earrings, both with glass beads:

And a hemp and shell pair:

And a hemp and glass bracelet:

And a hemp and polymer-clay-bead bracelet:

That's about all the pics I have of macrame jewelry I've done. I have this cool green-crochet-cotton and chinese yellow turquoise micro-macrame necklace and earring set I did, but I can't find it anywhere. If I find a pic I'll post it since I consider it my best piece.

Thanks for looking.

Better late then never, I hope!  Embarrassed

Here is a pic of my candy earrings:

 Embarrassed You can see that through frequent wearings I have broken the stem off one of my lollipops.  Sad  I don't have another one, so will have to figure out a repair. I like your lollipops much better than mine.  Smiley

16  My t-shirt recon! Extra long with tummy room! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: December 04, 2006 05:31:16 PM
This is a shirt made from one of my old tees (top part) and a tee from the men's department at Walmart. (I found their women's tees to be too cutesy.) It really isn't see-through-thin, it's just the flash on my handy-dandy duct-tape body double.

I ruched the side seams (Thanks for all the inspiration, Miss Tee, dearie!)  Kiss
The neck of the men's tee makes the bottom parts of the keyhole openings.
I think I'll ruch the sleeves too.
I think the front of the yoke part needs a little something, but I don't know what. What do you think?
I traced the skull and bones with glow-in-the-dark paint. I thought about going over the letters with bronze glitter paint just to make it a bit more 'there'.

Anyway, it seemed to me that putting the top part together the way I did allowed for better bust area shaping. And using a men's xxxl tee (I'm a size 18/20) made it possible to have plenty of room around the tummy. Plus, moving the neckline down to bust level and using a yoke made it possible to have the extra length I wanted to camouflage my tummy bulge.

I sure hope I'm coherent enough, I'm absolutely flat-out tired right now.
Well, let me know what you think, if ya don't mind. Thanks Smiley

17  Crochenit baby blankie in Crochet: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: November 08, 2006 08:16:23 AM
I found this in the bottom of my yarn stash waiting to be edged, so I edged it. I started it about four years ago. It worked up quickly on a double-ended hook I made from a dowel (prolly about a size P) and is made of some vintage acrylic I got in a humongous bag of yarn my dad sent me.

I may never crochenit again  Roll Eyes although it is exceedingly fluffy and plush

18  Beanie for son in Crochet: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: November 08, 2006 08:09:37 AM
Here it is:

It's made in Paton's Classic Wool. Ds also knits and always has a few skeins of paton's classic on hand in 'manly' colors.  Cheesy  I went to make up a couple more and found I had misplaced the printout of the free pattern; so I can't really tell which website I got it from at the moment.... I printed out so many beanie patterns before finding the one I wanted to make. I ended up adding an extra increase round and a couple extra length rounds as well, and left off the slip stitch edging since it made the brim tight and rigid.

I was wearing a similiar one a couple weeks ago when my hubby and I were out and got a request for a black one from the bartender. Hmmm.... Wonder how much beer we could get in trade........ Grin

20  There's something about an adult in an acorn hat... in Knitting: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: November 08, 2006 07:57:43 AM
... that makes me giggle.....

The adult is me.
I made this a couple of years ago. No pattern, just winged it. It's actually large-kid-size, but very stretchy.
