VERY nice! I love the simplicity of it! I love the beads that you used- they look great against the silver wire. Does it hang well when you wear it?

I had bookmarked the tutorial for making these, then got a bit lazy (and busy with a thousand other things). But, after seeing these, I may have to take a crack at it over my upcoming vacation! At least one, and I happen to have some dowels handy!

Of, course, I don't think mine will come out as nice as yours- those woodburned forams rock!

Wow! After looking at this, anyone who says that crocheted clothing is bulky and lacking in style should be slapped upside the head! This is gorgeous and it is something to aspire to!

My wish: Someday, I'll be able to crochet this well and be thin enough to look good wearing this!  Wink

Edited To Add: I just got the pattern...hey, I can dream can't I?  Grin

This is fantastic! I think it rocks (and I'm hitting the button!) and I'm not even from Pittsburgh! Hmmm...who can I make something like this for? Maybe I'll just make one for myself  Cheesy

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the tute! I love these! I had seen a pair for sale ages ago and bookmarked the site, but never bothered to figure out how to make them. Thank you for making my lazy procrastination worth the wait!

I might have to make a pair of these today to wear to school tomorrow...

This is yet another adorable project by you, vegbee! You should be proud of yourself!!

Is it too small/hard to put on because it's too snug in the chest? If so, what if you cut a slit in the back (or the front  Wink )and put lacing in it, like a corset? Maybe teal cording (it looks like there are teal circles)?

Thanks for all of the zipper ideas mishti! I actually have a purse made out of a verrrryyy long zipper. It unzips completely and rolls up. To use it, you just re-zip it. If I end up with enough zipper sections, I could make a "faux" bag in a bunch of zipper colors- I just wouldn't be able to zip and unzip it now...hmmm...maybe I'll start buying too-big zippers on purpose (or at least not worry about it if I have to!).

Thanks junquette! Is your scavenging personality how you chose your username?  Wink

I've saved buttons off of old clothes, and I'm going to be converting some sweaters into teddy bears, but I never thought about scavenging the zippers from anything!
7199  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - APRIL on: March 31, 2007 07:03:51 PM
I wish I had noticed this crochetalong back when it first started! I just went through and looked at all of the squares that everyone has made so far. They look great!

I'm going to bookmark all of the patterns (although I don't know if I am experienced enough for the experienced ones!), and attempt to work on it this summer.  My biggest problem will be finding a bunch of coordinating colors that I like!

How much yarn will I need, by the end, do you think? I've checked the patterns, and up to this point, if I follow the instructions, I'll need 5 coordinating colors. On average, how many 12" squares can you get out of a skein of Red Heart (which goes on sale all the time, so it'll be cheap)? I tend to crochet on the tight side. I've never made an afghan before, so I have no idea how much yarn I'd need...

Thanks! I took my pattern piece (a rectangle of printer paper) and placed it on the fabric panel to choose the sections I wanted. I had another fish that I wanted, but it was too big and I would have only been able to use part of it. If you look at the panel now, it has rectangles cut out in random spots! But, it still has some very neat sections left on it that I'll probably turn into a purse or another pouch (maybe both!).

For the bottom you might be able to get a new slider to make it into another functioning zipper.

Where could I get another slider? Fortunately, I haven't "unzipped" the bottom half, yet.

If I can't find another slider, I was thinking it could be the teeth for a small monster...something else to add to my to-do list!
