1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Gauntlets for a punkish friend on: September 11, 2012 07:16:27 AM
Belated comment! I just started learning to crochet and came to Craftster looking for exactly this sort of thing. Thanks for the inspiration!

I don't actually play mass effect, but I can appreciate the style nonetheless - and they are so intricate! I like the open underside of the wrist. Does the "handle" in the palm stay in place and in shape pretty well? It looks great on you!

This is so lovely! The colors are beautiful and the mobile is a really clever use for the critters.

Oops! Links should be fixed now. I hope you can make some awesome undies for those tight-pants days.

I just recently saw that tutorial and it is the bomb. Another question (will we ever stop?!) - did you cut it smaller after you shirred it? Did you have any trouble with the shirring coming undone when you did, or did it hold up well?

That's so lovely! The fabrics fit together very well... I think I prefer the dress this way ^_^

Edit: Because I have this thing against showing my shoulders in situations that are even remotely formal (like, going to class). So for me this is a very apt modestification.

Awesome fabric. I was eyeing it myself at my local Joann's somewhat recently, for a dress similar to view D.

In the shirred dress, how did you finish the top edge? It looks like maybe a narrow overlock stitch in black thread - am I guessing that correctly?

That's really nice. I always mess up basic rectangle skirts because I drastically underestimate how much fabric I need (twice the size of my waist? That's plenty right? ---- Ha.Ha.No.). Is that the problem you had with your previous version?

Also, kudos on the invisible zipper. I was terrified of them for so long but then I watched a tutorial on Burda Style and facepalmed - Why was I not always doing this?! I recently started and I can say: there is nothing to be afraid of. It's so easy!

I love that you were able to save the piece despite the hole. Embroidering was a great idea, and the design came out AMAZINGLY on what sounds like difficult fabric.

Thanks for sharing! I've been there before too, like when I tried to follow the Generation T tutorial on a wrap tee and it just was an oddly shaped piece of cloth - fortunately intact enough that I could use the fabric for another project. Just keep experimenting!
