21  Beaucoup de chapeaux pour ma grand-maman. in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tenille on: October 05, 2007 11:01:25 AM
OK, It's such a boring topic that I decided to liven up the title in french. I know I'm not fooling anybody.  Tongue The purple, cream and yellow hats are all the same pattern. The blue one's a different pattern. My grandma like them so much she asked me to make the yellow on, a black one and a red one for her too. That's me wearing the yellow one so ya'll can see how they fit. Click on any of the pics for a bigger view.

















And this is my Grandma! She had a form of cancer, and while she didn't lose all her hair, she says it's so thin she can't do anything with it. So I made her hats. Cause let me tell you, I hate those little turban hats like she's wearing in this pic.

The photos in here are great!!! My new thing is taking pictures of people in a pair of toy glasses I took from a friends kids (with their mothr's permission of course) they're very Harry Potter, but Potter had nothing to do with the pics. Anyway My goal is to see how many people I can get to pose for me in them. Here's one pic.

The rest of them are in a set on my flickr site here http://www.flickr.com/photos/tenille/sets/72157602122168805/

23  brimmed slouchy hat(6pics) pattern added(pg1) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tenille on: September 24, 2007 12:58:54 PM
I made this brimmed slouchy hat last night. I wanted something that i could wear that would fit over my hair. I'm not completely happy with the brim,but I think I'll make a couple more and tweak the brim. but here it is.



It's so sad that I decided to make this hat instead of clean this mirror







here's what it looks like without the brim. I like it this way too.


♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Pattern is here!

If you have massive tons of hair (for example really long locked hair) you might want to add in multiples of row 10 and it will make the hat more oblong to fit your hair.

Ok, you can start with a joined chain or with a magic circle. I like the magic circle personally, but its up to you.

1.   Ch 3. 11dc in ring join (12 dc)

2.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. 2dc in each stitch around join (24)

3.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next stitch. 2dc next stitch* repeat from *to* around join (36)

4.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next stitch. 2dc next stitch* repeat from  *to* around join (48)

5.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 2 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from *to* around join (60)

6.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 3 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (72)

7.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 4 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (84)

8.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 5 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (96)

9.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 5 stitches. 2dc next 6 stitches* repeat from around join (108)

10.   Ch 3. dc in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join

Decrease begins  here (I didnt count the number of stitches per row for these rows. keep in mind this fits my giant head, so you may need to add in a couple more or less decreases before you do the brim. I'd suggest trying it on after row 16 to see if you need to decrease more. you can do it two ways. #1 add in more decrease rows. #2 change the number of decreases in row 16. Ex. dc in fewer stitches before each decrease.)

11.   Ch 3. dc in next 10 ten stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 11 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. (Youll decrease about 8 times. Just dc in any extra stitches after the last decrease to finish the row) join

12.   Ch 3. dc in next 8 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 9 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

13.   Ch 3. dc in next 5 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 6 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

14.   Ch 3. dc in next 2 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 3 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

15.   Ch 3. 1dc in next stitch and each stitch around.

16.   Ch3. dc in next 9 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 10 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join. fasten off.


Brim starts here! If you stop here itll look more like a giant snood/hairnet.  I double stranded the brim to make it stiffer. If you dont want to you can probably not fasten it off on row 16 and start the brim from there with a ch1. If you read ahead, you can see where I was just making up the brim as I went along. You can choose to use whatever stitches you want for the brim but I think the basic concepts still gonna work about the same. Next time Im gonna do all my dc rows before I start in on my sced rows. As is, I was just trying to make the brim, look visually how I wanted to. I had to go back and count afterwards. If/when I fine tune the brim, I'll come back and repost it.


1.   Join yarn in any stitch on the edge of hat. Slip stitch in same stitch. sc, hdc, dc in next 20 stitches (more if you want the brim to be wider) hdc,sc, slip stitch. Turn.

2.   ch1.slip stitch in previous sc. Sc in previous hdc. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. 1dc in each of the next 14 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. Hdc. Sc. Slip stitch. Turn. (slip stitch should end in 1st sc of row 1)

3.   ch1.slip stitch in previous sc. Sc in previous hdc. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. 1dc in each of the next 16 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. Hdc. Sc. Slip stitch. Turn. (slip stitch should end in 1st sc of row 2)

4.   ch1. sc in slip stitch and each stitch across ending in slip stitch. Turn.

5.   ch1. sc hdc dc across row. In last 2 stitches of row (hdc, sc) turn.

6.   ch1. sc across row.

7.   ch1. sc around entire hat (brim and all) fasten off and weave in the ends.

24  Thong. (Yes, I said thong) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tenille on: September 22, 2007 12:04:06 PM
"Ok, what had happened was..."  my friend sends me a text that says "crochet me a thong" that's all it says. I'm sitting there and thinking "yeah right". Turns out she was serious. She needed it for a game at a bridal shower where the bride has to guess who brought which underwear. I don't think she's going to use mine though. Her mom oalo knitted her one out of the evilness that is also knowna as fun fur. (May God forgive her). Anyway, i made this in like 10 minutes, so here it goes. I figured someone should see it since I went to the trouble to make it and you guys are it. lol.






This is just soooo Wrong...

25  Re: 2007 Costume Sewalong (All Costumes) in Clothing Sewalongs by Tenille on: September 20, 2007 09:55:38 AM
doe_eyes   that looks wonderful! i love the bottom too. You inspired me to get up off my butt and get to work. So last night I bought some lighter purple, semi-stretchy fabric and started my costume. My sewing machine went wonky so I just started hand sewing while I was listening to an audio book. Let me tell you, I lost track of time. Started at around 730pmish and when I actual looked at the clock again it said 545am and I was all  "Oh, maybe I should go to bed now" and then of course I got back up at 930am this morning. The dress is done except for the hem and attaching one strap (it's only pinned on) and I cut out some of the same fabric to make short shorts for wearing underneath this cause there's no power on earth that could get me out of the house without shorts under this thing. lol. Here's my in progress pics! (ignore the mess in the background. I did lol.) So far so good on the Shanna project!

Here's the front
There's a little split in the bottom front (on purpose)



And here's back

26  My slouchy puff/bobble hat of destiny (w/links to pattern) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tenille on: September 18, 2007 11:41:25 AM
I found the link to the original version of this hat. The one I found on "Crochet by the hook" I noticed that AargghMatey's patterns not up right now, so I'm adding this link for anyone who wants it. the only difference between the two is one fewer row of puffs/bobbles here. http://bythehook.blogdrive.com/archive/91.html 
Smiley



here's my slouchy hat. It's a very funny story, at least to me for how this hat came to be. I printed out a bunch of hat patterns about 2 weeks ago from various locations on the internet. Then one day last week, I found the topic posted on craftster here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195823.0 by ArrghMatey   (there's a link to her pattern there). Anyway my friend who I taught to crochet and I were going on about how we were gonna have to make one of them.

That same night I went home, and pulled a hat pattern out of my stack, at random mind you, and started working on it. (you can probably see where this is going) I didn't really even look at it except to make sure I was following the stitches correctly cause I was watching a movie. Anyway, I got to the second row of puffs/bobbles and really looked at it and said to  myself, "wait a minute? Isn't that the hat from today" I dug out the pattern I'd printed from ArrghMatey's blog and, lo and behold, It was the hat, except hers had an extra row of bobbles, which I immediately put into mine! I call it crafting destiny. Its like I was meant to make this hat.

And here it is.




Sorry the front pics a liitle blurry. Sad

I've got all my fabric for my Shanna costume, but I'm thinking of making this as a backup. I'm wanting to go visit a friend in Florida, so If we go to more than one party, I'm thinking I might want more than one costume. Of course there's always last years Ragedy Ann as an alternate backup too.



Now I'm a pretty big girl. Not tiny, but not hugely fat either and I'm 5'10 1/2" tall. What do you think?

29  Re: Painting with acrylic paint on wood. "HELP!!!" in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by Tenille on: September 14, 2007 02:42:18 PM
Nah, Not obtuse at all. There were a couple of  theme contests at the chalk walk held during the "3 Rivers Festival" this past summer. One of them was the underground railroad. This was what I came up with for my entry. It was a runaway slave in the middle with a man and woman watching and crying with Sadness for the trial he's enduring, but happiness for the future and what his life (of course representing everyone who endured the same things) could be. Hope that makes sense.

Here's the finished chalk version.
