1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / First FBB! on: March 03, 2008 06:50:05 PM
I am super proud of this FBB -- it's the first semi-complicated thing I've made Smiley I made this for my sister for Christmas, and now my mom wants one! 

The color doesn't show very well, but it's a nice forest green, with black/white flower and lining.

I know a lot of people have done this set, but I just wanted to add mine to the group Smiley When I first saw this set I knew I had to make it for a good friend who loves NBC.  We exchanged early Christmas gifts this past weekend -- and she loved it!!!

An ear flap hat I made for a friend's birthday last week. I used this pattern, but modified it slightly: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=133884.0

I bought this yarn about two years ago and was glad to finally have a use for it Smiley

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / UPDATED with tut: Finished Clutch! on: May 08, 2007 08:00:47 PM
Tut below pictures!

When I saw hollylynne's Pirate Clutch, I knew I had to make one. So I decided it would be a birthday gift for one of my friends. I used a different stitch, but tried to copy her idea as much as possible Wink

Yarn: TLC Essentials Worsted * Medium in Eden Green
Hook: H/8-5.00mm

Here is how I made the stitch pattern for the body of the clutch:

Chain Multiple of 2 +1 (basically as wide as you want the purse to be!)

Row 1: Single crochet across.

Row 2: Chain 1, single crochet across.

Row 3: Chain 2, Crunch Stitch as follows:

-- slip stitch loosely in second sc from hook, half double crochet in next sc, slip stitch in next sec, hdc in next, and continue this across. You should end on a slip stitch.

Row 4: Chain 1, single crochet across. Repeat for Rows 5 and 6.

Row 7: Chain 2, Crunch stitch again.

Row 8: Chain 1, single crochet across. Repeat for Rows 9 and 10.

Row 11: Chain 2, Crunch stitch again.

And I continued alternating this way until I had a rectangle long enough that when folded it made a height I liked for the purse, including enough to "flap over" and button.

I found it was best to end the body of the purse during the rows of single crochet, because that is where I made the button hole. In one of those rows, when I got to near the middle I just made a few chains and skipped a stitch or two, then continued single crocheting across.

Now, for the shell edging... that was pretty much trial and error! I knew how to make them, but spacing them out so they were fairly equidistant was a bit tircky. To make the shells, just double crochet 5 or 6 times in one stich. I think I used slip stiches between shells... again, I just kind of experimented with these until I got them spaced nicely.

Then I just folded the bag up so the inside was facing out, sewed up the sides with a yarn needle and then flipped it right-side out!

For the lining, I used hollylynne's instructions which you can find at her original post linked above (it's on the second page of comments).

I *think* that's it... please message me or comment here if you have any questions or if I completely confused you, haha. I am still a novice myself, and haven't written a tut before!

Again, thank you for all of your kind words!!  Show me if you make one!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slytherin scarf (not too good) on: March 15, 2007 11:33:56 AM
I made this for my husband when I first started crocheting -- hence it's lack of excitement, haha.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My fav scarf on: March 15, 2007 11:19:52 AM
Hi! I've been a lurker for a while... and for some reason I decided to finally register and start putting up pics of my stuff today. Stalling at work I guess  Wink

I've been crocheting for about 2 1/2 yrs now, but haven't really gone past scarves and blankets yet, haha. Anyway, here is my current favorite scarf. I wear it everyday. It's just baby soft black in Honeycomb stitch I believe.
