Pretty dress.

What is the yarn on the stripped hat? They are all really cool looking.

The yarn for the blue and brown one was Red Heart and the black/brown/gray one is Charisma by Loops and Threads. 

Today, I made a HUGE mitten out of two king sized sheets (which I will take to school for my kiddos to use, plus it keeps it out of my house Smiley )and I made a pair of lace shorts! I am going to miss being able to craft in peace on Sundays when football is on Tongue

I just searched for shorts and this came up, how do you make the lace shorts?

I just used a short pattern on some lace fabric I had. I just make sure to wear leggings under them Smiley

Sorry bananaleg, you asked a while back how I laced my rug together.  I looked at a tutorial from a blog called Sunshine's Creations.  Wish I had some of that linen twine she recommends, but I just used black crochet cotton.  But using stash and getting it finished was the point, so I went right ahead.

April
Color:  Purple 
Pattern:  Paisley
For:  Your car, bicycle, scooter, or donkey cart.  However you get around.
Challenge1:  Now that you've done a bit of cleaning, picked our collective brains for new uses for old items, and generally had a while to ponder your stash, you may come to the conclusion that there are some items in there you are never going to use.  That's okay!  Pass them along to someone else.  (After all, that makes room for new stuff).
Challenge 2: Okay, so we've all probably got a pinterest boards or a bookmark folder full of neat tutorials we've saved for later.  Well, later is now, so how about rolling up your sleeves and giving one or two of them a try.


April already  Grin

Since purple & Paisley are two of my favourite things I guess I ought to be able to make something from this months theme  Cheesy

I don't know about making something for my bike though, I shall have to have a think about that. I did save a pattern for a handlebar bag but I lost it when my external drive broke  Sad Maybe I can find it again if I google long and hard enough!

Last month seemed to be taken up by hats but I'm slowing down on the crochet again and feeling the need to sew something.

Kookaloo_Starr copied these in her post earlier, I've put it up again so they're easier to read.  I got caught up with travel and family for Easter and forgot to post them yesterday.

Well, April is my month, purple is my favorite color, and i believe i have some paisley fabric somewhere. Woohoo!

My sister sent me a picture of my nephew in his Mickey Mouse hat. Like i figured, the ears do not stay up, but it's maybe even more adorable because of it.
 
Look at his little face. Hahaha!

Oh, how adorable! And yes, I do mean both the hat and the kid.  Kiss

This is my paisley fabric I'm intending to use this month, I have a few strips approx 10" x 30". It is polyester and has a slight stretch to it.


This is what I'm attempting to make - GLOVES  Smiley

I struggle to knit gloves and don't like how bulky crochet ones turn out so I thought I would try sewing a pair. I bought the pattern originally for the hats and I am psyching myself up to make the gloves. I don't know why I am so daunted by the prospect, its not like I lose anything but time if they don't work out  Roll Eyes

K-Star--what lovely fabric!  are the gloves lined?   I would never have thought to sew gloves, but why not!  I imagine turning the fingers could be the hardest part, but a chopstick would help that!

I'm making the first pair unlined, I don't want to cause myself more trouble than I need  Wink The difficult part (I think) will be sewing the gussets between the fingers although since I started making dolls I'm better at those tight turns and narrow margins  Grin
