1  Re: Double Tail Santa Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by BethyBess on: December 14, 2010 03:47:21 AM
I'm a mail carrier and when I saw this hat I just knew I had to have one to wear on my route.  Since I deliver packages and XMas Cards all day I'm just like Santa anyways.  Smiley

I have to tell you....I've had vehicles stop in the middle of the road to scream compliments to me on this hat.  The compliments just don't stop....everyone loves this hat....young and old.



I haven't crocheted in years and would consider myself little more than a beginner now.  I'd never done cables but after watching the youtube video several times and tearing out the hat a couple times I finally got it!  woo-hoo!

Thanks for a great pattern!

2  Re: Ear flap hat tutorial in Knitting: Completed Projects by BethyBess on: January 23, 2008 08:04:42 AM
I was looking for an Ear Flap hat when I found your pattern.  I had to make it right away...unfortunatel y I didn't have any 16 inch circular needles.  I tried learning the magic loop with my 29 inch needles but it just wasn't working for me.   Sad  So....what else could I do but make my own needles.  It was actually pretty easy to make them out of dowels.  I don't think I'll ever buy a metal/plastic pair again!   Cheesy

So...here is my pink hat.  Pink just happens to be my favorite color and the brighter the better.  This hat was a breeze to make.  






Thank you so much!

3  T-Shirt Ribbon Tab Skirt For Dimy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BethyBess on: July 31, 2007 05:40:20 AM
I wanted to make my daughter a 4th of July outfit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on fabric and notions so I hit the thrift store.  At my local thrift store each week a different colored tag is 25 cents. So this skirt cost probably less than a dollar once it was all done.    

So anyways....I found this flaggy tshirt and knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  



I made it into a skirt for  Diamond but made the front printing to be on the butt.  I also put some little ribbon tabs along the bottom.  I think that touch made the skirt pop.



Here are the action shots....





Every time she's worn this outfit she gets tons of compliments.  She doesn't usually wear jeans underneath....it was just cold the day I took pictures. Smiley

I hope you all like it as much as I do.  It was super easy to make and tshirt material is so easy to work with.

Oh...and thanks for letting me share.  I don't really have any crafting buddies around here who share my enthusiasm and I have to tell somebody!  LOL.

4  Ruffley TShirt Recon ~ My First Post in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyBess on: July 07, 2007 05:18:56 PM
This is my very first post although I've been inspired by y'all to cut up a few other t-shirts.  Smiley

 Basically I was walking through my local Walmart yesturday and saw this boxy WISCONSIN TShirt in my favorite color.  I wanted it and it was only $5!  I immediately thought of this tute and bought it.  

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165676.0

Here is the finished product.

Before.....

Front....

Back....

Notice how I made the front into the back.  That way it didn't mess up the wording when I cut and tied it.  

This was the easiest recon ever.  I tried it on every step of the way just to make sure it was the right size.  I would definately recommend this for anyone just starting to recon.  

Thanks for looking.
Bethany
