241  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Animal Eyes on: August 16, 2007 08:29:56 AM
I really like making amigurumi.  Really, really like it.  I can't embroider the face on and have it look decent, so lately I've been using felt.  I want to use those cute little black plastic eyes, but I have a couple questions.

What's the most popular or "standard" size?  I have no idea what size to buy.  Also, when do you put the eyes on?  Do you put them on after you're done crocheting and stuffing, or as you go along?  If you put them on as you go, how do you know where to place them?

Sorry if someone has asked this before.  Thanks in advance for your help!

Here she is:




I made her from a pattern from Melbangel on Etsy.

What do you guys think?
243  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cute Nintendo DS Case- *now with more pics and tut!* on: August 07, 2007 07:31:42 AM
I had a hankering to crochet something, but I wanted instant gratification.  So I grabbed some yarn and made a coin purse.  It ended up on top of my DS and I thought, "Wow, that would make a cute DS case."  And thus, (even though I have a store bought case) the crocheted DS case was born.





I just winged it, but if you'd like a tut I can make another and write it down as I go.

OK, here's one I made for my bf in his favorite colors: Subaru Rally Blue and Yellow:


And the tut!  This pattern is for a DS Lite, but I have made notes for the original DS.

Size H crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn in 2 colors.  Main color= mc, contrasting color= cc
Scissors, yarn needle, etc.

With mc ch 16 (for original DS, ch 19)
Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch accross.  Ch 2, turn.
*Hdc accross.  Ch 2, turn.*  Repeat until piece measures 14".
Change to cc and sc accross for 2 rows.  FO.

Fold piece with right sides together leaving a 3 inch flap.  Sew up the sides.  I usually add a dab of glue to hold my knots since they always seem to come out.  Turn so the right side is facing out.  Add velcro or a button for closure.

With cc, ch 4.  Slst into last st to form a ring.
Ch 6.  Slst into ring.  Repeat 4 times.  FO.

Sew or glue flowers to case wherever you'd like them to be.
244  UNITED STATES / Colorado / Colorado SnB Group? on: August 06, 2007 08:00:02 AM
OK, so I'm not sure where to post this.  So, moderator, you may move this if you need to.

I'm in the Arvada/Westminster/Broomfield area and am interested in a weekly (or monthly) SnB group.  Is there an existing group in the area, or would anyone be interested in starting one?
245  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / So I Want to Get Back Into Knitting on: August 05, 2007 01:29:10 PM
I started my yarn obsession with knitting.  I kept seeing all these cute crocheted things, so I taught myself how to crochet.  Crochet goes so much faster for me, but I miss the beauty of knit stitches.  Does anyone know of an easy, quick knit pattern?  I'd like to stay away from scarves, dishcloths, and head scarves as I've knit my share of those already.

246  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / The Joy of Plastics (pic chubby) on: July 22, 2007 01:50:48 PM
I work for a prototyping company that deals strictly with plastics.  I thought to myself "how can I benefit from this?"  One of the supervisors helped me design a cad file of a thin disk.  I took the disks home and decoupaged some stuff onto them.

248  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mini Fortune Cookies! on: July 12, 2007 07:14:08 PM
I made these for a buddy trade on Etsy- it was for 4 weeks and this is the final gift.  I've been sending my older guy buddy supplies for his jewelry making, but I decided to make something for the last gift.  I hope he likes them.



I sent them in a little take-out box.

OK, so I'm addicted to making eyeballs now.  I made these tonight.



250  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / On the Threshold on: July 09, 2007 08:14:03 PM
OK, so I'm almost afraid to post this.  There is some massive talent on this board.  I ocasionally paint just because, and sometimes I draw.  I really have to be in the mood for it to turn out looking halfway decent, and I'm usually not in the mood to paint or draw.

Anyway, this painting was done with those cheap 97 cent acrylic paints on some kind of paper.

This painting was inspired by an Italian poem called "On the Threshold" by Guido Gozzano.

"... A Lady with no shape or form, a Lady in nothingness dressed,
Wherever her cold fingers rest, she touches things but to transform."

Comments?  Please- be kind.   Smiley
