381  Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: March 30, 2008 05:53:29 PM
I finished another one! 9/50 now. This is the Fire Blossom in Sn'C Country Sage Ombre (the pattern called for red, but I didn't have any). It ripples quite a bit, so I may use a smaller hook (highly unusual for me) the next time I make one. The pic is a bit blurry, but it shows the color pretty well.

Holey Moley, who is this person?!? I finished the Falling Leaves! That makes #8! I've made more in the last week than in the last 3 months combined! Still not as fast as most, but pretty darn quick for me Wink

I used Sn'C in Shades of Green (same as my Face Cloth), and I was amazed that I had enough yarn. This cloth works up pretty quick (1 1/2 loads of laundry and it was done!), so it's on my list of keepers.

Sorcha, I love that square that you posted! Do you have a pattern link?

pjherbert, those colors are fantastic! Dazzling!

I finished  my March '07 Easy square last night and started on the March '08 square. I managed to get it almost done, except for the last round on the pattern. Once again, even though I used a K hook, I had to use 2 rounds of dc instead of one round of sc to get it to 12". I can't believe how quickly this square came together! I really had to pay attention to the counting in the beginning, but once I got going, I couldn't stop Wink

Now, to start working on my April '07 square Wink

I finished my March '07 Easy Square! I think it is my favorite so far. I really love how the blue and grey look together. And, I just realized, I am officially halfway done!!

385  Re: Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 10 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: March 21, 2008 09:42:12 AM
I received my tin today!! After my original partner flaked, Dreambelle stepped up and offered to be my angel. She chose the most difficult of my themes (molecules) and came up with such a clever idea- I love it!

Inside the tin there are a bunch of atoms and bonds that have magnets on the back so I can assemble my molecules. Due to the long journey (for some reason, the tin went from Indiana, to Arizona, then spent 2 days in New Hampshire before finally making it to Massachusetts!), some of the magnets came off, but I can glue them back on. And, I have some Perler beads around here somewhere, so I can add more pieces to the set later! I may also glue some magnets to the back so I can hang the whole kit on the fridge- I'm off to print out molecular diagrams to copy right now!!

Thanks Dreambelle for being my angel and coming up with such a clever idea. You rock!

And, thanks, kishcrafts for setting me up with such a great angel! You rock, too!

Numbers 6 & 7!

This is the Bark Sedge in Sn'C Summer Sky. I just love it! It is a bit wonky, though. I crochet on the tight side, and one turning chain at the end of each row just wasn't enough. So, I added a second one, and it worked out better...

This is the Face Cloth, and I can't believe how easy it was! It only took me about an hour to make it. I'll be making many more of these once I'm done with my 50. It's a bit small, so I may make future ones bigger. I used Sn'C Shades of Green and it started out with a cool pattern (sadly, no DNA), but shortly after I noticed the pattern, it shifted and the effect was lost- I may have skipped a stitch or two, or loosened/tightened my tension. Wouldn't surprise me...

ETA: After I posted, I realized that I could see DNA in the Face Cloth- the angle of the photo makes it look more apparent...gotta love science Wink

And, I made another one! But, I also gave this one away, so I still need to make one for myself! I modified the toes a bit so I wouldn't have to join all of the suckers as separate  pieces and it looks okay. It does look better the way wibit wrote the pattern, but I was short on time so I cheated a bit.

Here he is sitting on the kitchen chair. The wood reminded him of a tree...

Thanks again, wibit, for sharing such a great little pattern! I love it!

I finished #5! Whoo-hoo! Yes, I'm moving at a record pace...one dishcloth every three months...

I realize that I have been left in the dust...but I'm okay with that Wink

This is the Easy dishcloth (http://www.crochetnmore.com/easydishcloth.htm), and I made it in Sugar n Cream Twists yarn (the green version...I don't have it handy and I can't recall the name), which I really like.

I didn't do the best job on the edging, but since this one is for me, it's good enough for my dishes!

I had the chance to test this pattern for mamaedgar, and it is such a fun and easy pattern! I made this set (I used autumn colored yarn instead of spring colors since I had them on hand) pretty quickly. I got quite a chuckle out of knocking the bunnies over and, since I gave this set away in a personal swap, I'm going to make a set for myself soon.

390  Re: Fold-up Tote Bag (Tutorial on Page 2) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: March 02, 2008 12:05:13 PM
Here's the tutorial! Please let me know if you have any problems or questions!

Fold-up Tote Bag- Tutorial

Please do not sell this pattern (but you may share it for free). However, please feel free to sell any bags that you make using this pattern.

Sturdy fabric- 1 yard
- This would take just over 3/4 of a yard of 45” wide fabric, not including the pocket
- I used duck cloth, which was a little hard to sew through multiple layers at the bottom.
Closure of choice (button, snap, Velcro)
Bias tape (I used double fold, 1 package was enough)
Semi-rigid plastic (such as the cover of a plastic 3-ring binder)
Webbing for strap- 2 1/4 yards, cut into two equal pieces
-You can use less if you don’t want the strap material to go down the length of the bag.
Marking pen/pencil



1. Cut the fabric into the following pieces:
a. Front/Back panels: 13” X 15 1/2” (cut two)
b. Bottom: 9” X 13” (cut two)
c. Sides: 9” X 15 1/2” (cut two)
d. Flaps: 4” X 5” (cut four) Note: You may wish to make the flaps a little smaller.

2. Cut the plastic into two 5 1/2” X 8” pieces.

3. If you plan to attach a pocket, now is the time to do it.
a. Cut pocket to desired size.
b. Hem top edge of pocket.
c. Position pocket, right side down, on the front panel. Position it so that the hemmed edge is pointing towards the bottom edge of the panel (I don’t have a picture of this, sorry!). After you stitch the bottom of the pocket in place, you will fold the pocket up, covering the seam.

4. Pin webbing in place on front and back panels.
a. If you added a pocket, pin the webbing so that it covers the side edges of the pocket.

5. Stitch in place, stopping about a 1/2” from the top edge (you will be folding the top edge down to hem it later), reinforcing near the top edge by stitching an X on each side.
a. If you added a pocket, the side edges of the pocket will be covered with the webbing.
b. Be sure to stitch close enough to the edge of the webbing in order to stitch the pocket edges closed.

6. If desired, round edges of the flap pieces. Take two pieces, wrong sides together, and attach the your closure of choice. Repeat for remaining two pieces.

7.  Stitch bias tape around 3 sides of each flap, leaving bottom open.

8. Take one side panel and the front panel. Wrong sides together, align the side edges. Pin the bias tape in place over the edges and stitch in place.

9. Repeat with remaining edges on the body of the bag.

10. Take the two bottom pieces and place them wrong sides together. Mark the center of the 15 1/2” edge. Pin in place and stitch along marked line.

11. Zig-zag around three sides of the bottom, leaving one long edge open. Slide one plastic piece into each pocket. Zig-zag remaining edge closed, being careful not to stitch through plastic piece.

12. Center flaps on the 9” edge of each side of the bottom, making sure to position the closure so that it will close properly when folded closed (the snapping parts are face up), and zig-zag the edges in place.

13. Pin the short edges of the bottom to the short bottom edges of the sides of the bag. Pin and stitch bias tape in place over short edges. Because of the amount of material at the corners, it’s a little tough to sew. Sew carefully to prevent breaking your needle!

14. Pin the long edges of the bottom to the long bottom edges of the sides of the bag. Pin and stitch bias tape in place over long edges. Because of the amount of material at the corners, it’s a little tough to sew. Sew carefully to prevent breaking your needle!

15. Zig-zag raw edge of the bag top. Fold edge down and topstitch in place.

16. Completed bag!
