1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Probably my most favorite scarf I've made yet! on: November 25, 2007 02:59:49 AM
I made this scarf a week ago and it was just OK...I knew I wanted to put something on it, but wasn't sure yet. Today it finally hit me like a ton of bricks; I needed to put my beloved Totoro on it, and boy was that a good choice!

I hope these pics aren't too big.





I love it SO much! Cheesy
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Can someone tell me... (stitch question) on: November 20, 2007 06:36:43 AM
What these stitches are?

I came across this shop on Etsy and I absolutely love these hats, and am more in love with the stitch that is used in the work. I've looked high and low and everywhere in between but haven't been able to figure it out... Huh

Does anyone have any ideas? I'd greatly apppppppreciate it! Wink

Cheers!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pretty much the best thing I've ever made...(pic heavy!) on: August 09, 2007 10:51:18 PM
I had decided a couple days ago that I had outgrown my old purse and needed something bigger. Since I'll be starting my fourth year of college in a little over a week, I thought it would be the perfect time to make myself something new.

After sitting and cutting out 70+ different colored 4"X4" squares I wanted to give up...but after a little patience (which I never have), my work paid off and I  had created this tote.

And I LOVE it. It's not too big, not too small; just the right size so that I can still wear my backpack, and I can keep things I don't want getting squished in my new little tote. I'm uber-proud.


Here's the main view. It has a small pocket on the front that's trying to blend in...tee hee!


A little close-up of some details.

And the inside with a bunch of pockets!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Ooof...probably a stupid question... on: July 29, 2007 01:11:53 AM
I have a question...I am absolutely in love with Mary Jane's pithy hat from Spider-Man 2...and a link for the knitting pattern can be found here...

http://www.littleturtleknits.com/pithyhat.htm

Is there any way this can be converted to crochet?  Undecided I am absolutely awful at knitting, but can crochet fairly well.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Palm Pilot Cozy! on: July 28, 2007 10:37:37 PM
I got bored today...so naturally I ended up picking up a hook and some yarn. About 30 minutes later, I had produced this little cozy for my Palm Z22.

I like it! It fits my Palm just right, and it keeps my screen from getting scratched.



6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first hat on: July 28, 2007 10:31:51 PM
I've been crocheting for almost a year now and I FINALLY got the courage to crochet my first beanie. After a day on the porch (and one akward and ridiculous looking sunburn later), I was able to come up with this super cool beanie. I got the pattern from one of those little project flyers you can get in the yarn sections of stores like Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics.


I absolutely love it. I love it so much I decided to make one for my littlest brother who is going to be turning six this year. He's beyond excited to get it in the mail.

I actually found the pattern online as well, just in case you want to make one of these beauties for yourself. It can be found here...

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / I'm pretty much addicted... on: July 28, 2007 10:02:15 PM
I love freezer paper stencils. It is a gift from the Gods, and it is so easy to use. I got bored yesterday, and decided to take one of my numerous plain t-shirts and add some character to it.

Here's what I ended up with...



Does anyone else remember Daria? That show was the best!

Later I ended up carefully painting Daria's hair brown. Just another reason to represent!
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first post...(blush) on: June 11, 2007 12:16:28 PM
Hooray for my first post!

I was bored this weekend and ended up making some freezer paper stencils and stenciling myself a new shirt. The linked images are a little dark, but you get the picture.

I loves it!

Here's the front...


And here's the back....


The stencil looked pretty sloppy at first, so I ended up taking a paintbrush and redoing all the outlines, and then just filling in all the left over awkward spots. I'm not usually a fan of doing that, but I think it ended up looking swell.

Princess Daisy always was so much cooler than Princess Peach! Wink
