1  Outdated Frilly Shirt into Birthday Bowling Button Up! in CHALLENGE 59 ENTRIES by emmiebaur on: February 05, 2011 09:52:25 AM
I wasn't planning on entering this contest, but all of that changed yesterday morning!  I was at a loss as to what to get for my friend Cinthya for her birthday, which we were celebrating at a local bowling alley.  I went to the mall intent on finding a vintage style bowling shirt and came up empty handed.  Then I realized that I could just make one out of another shirt and headed off to Salvation army!  Came away with a couple of shirts to play with, and this:

I'm a frilly mess that's not getting any action!


2 hours later and Voila!  Upcycled Bowling shirt:




My friend loved her shirt!  It was the first time I'd attempted anything like this, so I was excited.  I even made bias tape, another first, to edge the sleeves.


Red is her favorite color.  This was a lot of fun!

2  Pixie Hat and Twist on a Harry Potter House Scarf! in Crochet: Completed Projects by emmiebaur on: November 22, 2010 01:46:24 PM
Nerdy me waited in line for the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, and ubernerdy me crocheted a pixie hat and scarf in Ravenclaw colors, lol.  Here's me:


And the goods:


I got the hat pattern here: http://www.freevintagecrochet.com/hats/pixie-fringe-hat-pattern.html Such a cute vintage pattern!

The scarf is my own design, all HDC.  I did run into a bit of a problem when I realized the large buttons I'd bought for the scarf didn't fit through the HDC stitches, booooo.  I solved the problem by stitching buttons to the back side of the scarf as well as the front.  The unseen back buttons affix the front to the back, but only the large buttons show.  SQUEE!


Now... what to wear to the next installment of Deathly Hollows?  Wink
