1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / "Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat" in Blue-Lavender on: May 27, 2010 11:37:24 PM
It's been so long since I've last posted anything on Crafster! So here I am, thinking of posting this up. The first time I tried to knit, that didn't work out too well...but then I saw this really cute crochet hat by ArrghMatey, and that had me thinking I could try to crochet, and see how I like it.

This is my very first crocheted item, and I'm very happy with how it turned out! There are certainly mistakes here and there and I'm sure I could work on my tension a bit, but other than that, I love it! Crochet is actually really fun, and in my opinion, a lot easier than knitting. The pattern was very easy to follow once I got going,  so I recommend it to all beginner's like me, who want to take a stab at it. I'd also recommend keeping a strict count of how many stitches you've made, since that's probably why I had to redo serveral rows a few times.

Thanks for looking everyone, comments are most welcome!

I would really like to make a scarf that looks like this, would anyone happen to know a pattern for/close to this kind of scarf? Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance!  Cheesy

Well, not really before Christmas. It's kinda late to post, but I couldn't get the pictures until now.

I have a friend at school that is moving, and therefore I won't see her at school again after winter break. Thus so, I decided on making a hooded sweater for her as a going away present! I used the McCall's 4261 pattern for a zippered jacket, and altered it just a bit. Overall, I'm rather pleased with the result! I'm still new to sewing, so I learned a lot from this project. My sister modeled it for me, because it just doesn't look as good on me, as on her  Tongue

The hood here is lined with a yellow knit jersey. It took me a while to figure out how to sew it *sigh*

If you look closely, you can see the little pleats I put into the sleeve!

Hopfully, she won't be able to pick out my "beginner's mistakes", attatching the hood proved more difficult than I thought. Oh well.
What do you guys think? feedback is much appreciated!  Cheesy

Haha I've been on craftster for a while, 3 months maybe?  Huh ahh well, so I've finally decided to make something worthy of putting up! This was the first thing I've ever sewn. BOY did it take a while! You don't want to know how many times I've had to use the seam ripper...not to mention, my mother said the pace I was sewing was the slowest she's ever seen. XD well, at least she said it jokingly! I used the pattern from Burda Style (gosh I love that site! I practically downloaded everything!) Free patterns, YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY GO WRONG WITH THAT! But here's the link to the pattern if you guys want to make it. I found it fairly easy to make...after countless times looking over it of course ^_^'''


I made an extra belt to go with it, just to add a more personal touch Tongue This is closest to the actual colour

a closeup of the pleats...it's kinda hard to tell actually....oops >_<''' but at least you can see the belt I made here! (was great practice *cough* for sewing straight lines ^_-)

and a closeup of the gathering...that's what it's called right?   Grin

I used this fabric called sport cotton poplin. It was really cheap too! $1.77/yrd Cheesy
Thank you for looking! Feedback is more than appreciated ^_^
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP, anyone know how? on: April 29, 2007 09:36:15 PM
Hello everyone, I'm new here! I was searching around, and I saw this really cute skirt. Unfortunately, it's quite expensive so I can't don't want to buy it. BUT I DO want to try and make one! However, I don't really have much of a clue how! Would anyone know how to make this? tutorials/referals/anything would help! I hope it's not too much trouble


Thanks you guys!
