101  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Clay Choker on: January 12, 2007 06:31:51 PM
This was supposed to be a cuff bracelet...but when I put it in the oven to bake, something shifted and it wasn't wrist-shaped anymore. So, I added some beading wire on the sides, strung a bunch of seed beads and a few Swarovski crystals, added a toggle clasp and... Voila! A polymer clay crocheted necklace!

Very sticky to work with, so while I started with a hook, I switched to the ever-popular "finger-crochet" method!

102  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Gateway to "Fishy Heaven" (img heavy) on: January 06, 2007 03:50:32 PM
Okay, I was only able to enter this because the deadline was extended...I designed it in my head...and then worked out all of the kinks in the design...and then dilly-dallied all day because I couldn't seem to get started...but then I finally got to work...so...

Introducing... (dramatic drumroll, please)...the Gateway to "Fishy Heaven" purse!


At first glance...an unassuming white purse...



But then you lift the "lid"...



Complete with padded seat and the "dearly departed"...



Slightly blurry close-up of the "dearly departed"




Make sure you put the seat down when you're finished!!



Complete with "bubble" fabric lining...



103  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Sponge Bob mitten pattern? on: January 04, 2007 02:58:41 PM
In a recent post, there was a link to a pattern for SpongeBob mittens. But, when I clicked on the link, it was a members only board, and when I applied, I got rejected!  Angry Huh Tongue

Does anyone have a pattern for SpongeBob mittens that they'd be willing to share? Or, can anyone help me figure out how to make a pattern for them? I still consider myself a beginner when it comes to crochet, so I can't tackle this on my own...

Thanks in advance for any help!
104  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pom-Pom scarf on: January 01, 2007 12:28:28 PM
I put this here, because it isn't sewn, knitted or crocheted, and it isn't really what I would call clothing...just a frivolous bit of fluff...well, lots of bits of fluff, actually...


I was inspired by this post by leaguegirl:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141389.0

When I went to the craft store to buy the pom-poms (2", 1 1/2", 1", 1/2"), they had these lovely "jewel-tone" pom-poms, and I couldn't resist. They will look awesome with the new denim jacket that I haven't bought yet!!

I used dental floss (free from my dentist!) to string them together (and only stabbed myself in the thumb once!), and tried to follow 3 rules:
1) No two of the same size next to each other
2) No two of the same color next to each other
3) The largest pom-poms must be separated from each other by at least 3 other sizes.

I promptly broke rules 1 and 3- I had dumped all of the pom-poms in a bag and was pulling them out at random- and decided that it was still okay!

It's about 2 yards long, and I tried not to squish the pom-poms together, but sometimes, there are gaps because pom-poms seem to want to cuddle up close to each other!

105  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Heart and Star Gift Boxes (3 pics) on: January 01, 2007 12:12:56 PM
I made these last night. They are both 3-D on the top of the box, although it doesn't show up too well in the pics. I stamped hearts on the heart box, and stars on the star box (so original, I know!  Grin ). The star box has a flap on the back for filling. On the heart box, I was supposed to glue the back of the box closed with a flap, but I decided to cut the flap off- I punched holes and laced it up with ribbon. After I did that, I realized that if I decorated the box like a corset (using "flesh tone" paper for the box, some shiny paper-or maybe fabric- and lace) it would make an even cuter gift box!



106  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Marvin the Martian on: December 02, 2006 08:50:08 AM
This crochet challenge was a series of firsts! My first post of a project, my first challenge, the first time I've ever changed colors in crochet, the first time I've ever increased stitches, my first Amigurumi and...I think that's it!

Since I don't know how to upload to Photobucket, and I'm supposed to be leaving the house in about 15 mintes and I'm stilll in my PJs, I'm going to post the links to the images just to be safe...I hate to do this, but I am going to be gone all afternoon and won't have time to figure it out! But I will when I get home...

Hopefully, you can see my pics of Marvin the Martian! When I first read about this challenge (a week ago!), I wondered what to make. Then, when I finished reading what amigurumi was and what the characteristics were, I looked at Marvin sitting on the printer and knew I had to create him in amigurumi!




And...I know this is supposed to be COMPLETED projects for the challenge, but Marvin isn't fully stitched together (his head) and I haven't trimmed the ends... Grin
