2  Rich Mitered Throw (free pattern link) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sunnychoppers on: September 24, 2009 12:01:24 PM
When I saw this throw, I just HHAAAADDD to make it!!


I used Red Heart SuperSaver. 
Sewing the squares together was kind of difficult because it's not a perfect square.
So the completed throw has an odd shape.

I really enjoyed making this throw.
It's a very unique pattern and has an interesting "look."

This pattern would also look very nice if done in 6 different shades of purple or 6 different shades of green.

Thanks for looking!!!

3  weave in end when using double ring? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Sunnychoppers on: April 15, 2009 01:11:07 PM
I started this granny square by making a double ring.
(not the traditional joined chain)


Does the end need to be weaved in?
I'm thinking I can just snip it off because it's already weaved in.

All opinions welcome!!

4  Summer Purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sunnychoppers on: April 10, 2009 06:59:48 AM
I found this pattern on Etsy and had to have it!
What I like most is the fabric band.
But I was thinking of making a "themed" purse.
Like black yarn with silky Asian material or Holiday material or animal print.

For this one, I just used yarn and fabric I already had.
I'm real happy with how it turned out!

Thanks for looking!

This is awesome!!
The pink compliments the owl fabric beautiflly!!

I used this same owl fabric as lining for a purse I crocheted.

7  Sunny Tote in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sunnychoppers on: March 05, 2009 07:19:48 AM
This pattern was in the March issue of Crochet Today.
I had to change it a bit because the original pattern called for 24 hexagons.
Too big!!!!
I made 18 hexagons and it's still a little too big.
It measures 13" wide and 14" tall.

I lined it with some funky pink cotten material. 
I ironed Pellon interface to the material to make it nice and stiff.

I used purple bias tape to attach the rings to the lining.
Then crocheted directly onto the rings

Thanks for looking!!!

9  Valentine Heart Garland & White Bear in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Sunnychoppers on: January 13, 2009 08:37:25 AM
I made the bear for Christmas, but didn't want to put him away just yet.
So I took his scarf off and tied a small heart to his neck.

Here's the pattern for the bear:

Here's the pattern for the Heart garland:

I changed this pattern a bit.  I added a row of pink sc's on top and below the chain.
When I was adding the sc's to the bottom part of the chain, I hooked a piece of the heart to the sc. 
This way the hearts laid flat to the chain. 
Hope that makes sense!

Thanks for looking!

10  Re: Granny Purse with Owl Lining (7pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sunnychoppers on: January 08, 2009 11:21:21 AM
It's so bright and colorful I looove it! Could it be reversible if you wanted to? Having the awesome owls unseen on the inside would be a waste, they'd look crazy colorful on the outside! Cheesy

Holy cow!!  I never thought of this.  I turned it inside out... guess what?

It is reversible!!

I didn't realize it until the purse was done but the lining on one side is upside down.

Thanks, Pandamayhem, for asking!!!
I never would have thought to reverse it.
