1  My crafty baby shower! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by kestrel5287 on: November 14, 2008 01:58:56 PM
ok, so the shower hasn't officiall happened yet..it's a week from tomorrow, but we are now done with every crafty thing that needed to be done!  I'm so excited!  So without further ado, here are the pics!


Diaper Cake my mom made for me! It has about 345 diapers in it!


These are our favors they are supposed to look like baby booties and are made from an 8 oz. styrofoam cup. A tut can be found here: http://www.creative-baby-shower-ideas.com/baby-bootie-cups.html


We made NINETY ONE of these things! 


This is one of the game books we made.  Instead of passing out a bunch of pieces of paper, we put them into a book.  This is the cover.


one of the pages inside the book.  This is the baby bingo game.


and the last page has a thank you poem that's supposed to be from baby.


and this isn't too crafty, but still we rolled 100 rolls of silverware!


I hope you like everything! Comments appreciated!!

Fasten off, leaving a 6" tail
Sew strap to opposite side of bag with tail and yarn needle
Pocket:
Make a ch measuring approx 7" Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; turn
Row 1: Ch 2; hdc in each hdc across; turn
Row 2: Ch 2; hdc in each hdc across; turn
Continue in this pattern until piece measures approx 5" long
Fasten off, leaving tail long enough for sewing
To figure out placement of pocket,

Lay bag flat, as pictured:


Fold sides under the bag, so I looks like this:


Sew Pocket in place pictured along the red lines, leaving the blue open:


and Voila! you have a foldable market bag!  To fold bag into pocket, simple lay bag down as in the first picture, fold down the strap, fold under the sides as in the second pic, fold that in half short ways, and flip the pocket inside out!  Hope this helps some people!

7  My first market bag! in Crochet: Completed Projects by kestrel5287 on: February 28, 2008 07:15:22 PM
I crocheted this bag today and it went really quick!  Bag measures approx. 12" from bottom to top when not filled.  Stretches to approx. 24" when filled.  Handle measures approx. 19" long.  This bag features a pocket that it can be folded into so you can just throw it into your regular handbag and go.  When folded down into the pocket, it measures approx. 4" x 6".


Empty


Full


Folded into the pocket



Thanks for looking!

So, I am trying to decrease my stash of annoying novelty yarns and all my teeny tiny balls of yarn that I can't bring myself to throw out, so I made these guys:


This one sits in my sister's car


And this little guy doesn't have a home yet Sad

9  My Slouchy Brimmed Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by kestrel5287 on: February 24, 2008 08:03:26 AM
Here is a Slouchy Brimmed Hat I made yesterday with a K hook and redheart supersave yarn.




I'm quite happy with how it turned out!  I just kind of winged it and am making another slightly less slouchy one for my younger sister in simply soft yarn.

for the ping pong light things, maybe do a cut like this:



so you can bend it to slip the light in and out, but it will still fit and stay on the light.
