11  Christmas Slippers for the whole family (and I mean all of them) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pheather on: December 28, 2007 08:53:12 PM
So, since catching the crochet but back in July, I decided I would make all of my pressies for Xmas.  Thanks to the darling for her tutorial posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0

The only things I did differently are that when I got to the straps on the female versions I chained the amount between the sides and then continued the hdcs around the next row.  I also single crocheted around the outside to give them pizazz.  I also used puffy paint on the bottoms for grip.
These aren't all the ones I made, but just the ones I got pictures of:



Those pictured:
Red and Blue male pair is for BIL in Red Sox Colors (double strands of Red Heart)
Double blue mail pair for dear ol' dad:  Vanna's Choice Yarn
Purple women's Pair for me sis:  Main part is Lion Homespun, accent is Lion Microspun (I think)
Blue women's pair is for the lovely woman who birthed me:  Main part is Homespun again and microspun again.

I also made two more womens pairs in two shades of sage green (TLC Essentials, don't know the colors)  for my aunt and female cousin.  I made three more male pairs for my uncle and two of my male cousins.  My uncle got a pair in Vanna's Choice in mustard yellow.  The other boys got pairs in brown/blue red heart, and green/cammo red heart.

After all this crocheting I really came to understand what it is like to make the same thing out of different yarns, and how they can change the characteristics of the finished project.

Sorry about the long post, but at least it isn't picture laden. Cheesy Cheesy


Edited to add:
The beautiful flowers on the mary jane slippers came from a pattern from our own Sammimag.  You can get the pattern at http://www.ibrakeforyarnhooksandbooks.blogspot.com/

12  Mickey Mouse Hat (perhaps a little image obese) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pheather on: November 14, 2007 08:37:50 PM
My three year old has been asking me to crochet her a "Micky Mouse Thing".  Not being sure what that meant, I figured I could tackle a hat with mouse ears.  I had some black Red Heart lying around that I inherited, so I gave it a shot.  That is the story of how this was born:



Edit:  I decided to take my daughter's face off the internet, for her safety.  Thank you for understanding.

13  Robot Cake in Dessert by Pheather on: November 13, 2007 08:37:52 AM
My daughter turned three this weekend.  Her favorite movie is robots, so I decided to make a robot cake.  I should have taken pictures before I put saran over top and took off some of the icing, my bad.


Thanks for looking!

14  Re: 2007 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by Pheather on: November 02, 2007 10:39:56 PM
Great segue Sweets,

I sewed my daughter's costume this year (I didn't get to dress up because I had to drive 3 1/2 hours away for a work conference).  Here are the pictures (she helped a little too, She was obsessed with the sewing machine).  We made the tiger print pieces (shirt, tail and hat) the rest is ready made (mainly because my sewing abilities are very limited with my machine as well as how cold it is here on Halloween every year).
A couple different action shots:




And She wanted to show you her tail


Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the fabulous tutorial.  My cousin had one of the wool ones from South America and his step mom washed it and it was destroyed.  I thought I would make him one for Christmas. 

Here it is (modeled by my DH)

Eliea, I love that yarn!

Here is the lining:


I used this tutorial to line my bag, and it was so easy to follow.  http://crochetkel.blogspot.com/2006/10/sew-you-wanna-line-your-fat-bottom-bag.html  I also added a pocket, which will be handy. 

Thanks for looking Grin
