1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / babydoll dress (emily temple cute) on: September 16, 2011 11:15:41 AM
I really love the cut of this style of dress. Particularly the first and the picture on the right.

But how do I go about drafting this pattern or are there patterns out there similar to this? I'm actually pretty beginner at drafting my own stuff so I made a quick sketch of what I assume would look like.

I also have this Japanese pattern book and am wondering if I could just follow this and adjust it by having more fabric for the skirt portion.

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bunny Amigurumi :3 on: February 19, 2008 04:55:10 PM
originally i just wanted a small ball shape amigurumi pin cushion with a face but i ended up wanting to do more with it when an idea struck me. "hey i want to make a cute bunny!" so i did. i used some techniques i learned from Elisabeth D's book, Amigurumi! Super Happy Crochet Cute with just the pose-able arms, construction of the ears, and the use of blush/eye shadow for the pink areas. everything else i just winged it.

my first completed amigurumi doll Smiley

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / for the horde! (blizzcon '07 keychains -> earrings) on: September 27, 2007 04:00:46 PM
for those who are unfamiliar of the horde and blizzcon, all you need to know is World of Warcraft Tongue

so like my bf and my sister handed me their keychains since they never put them to use and then i thought they'd make cute earrings. so i bought some sterling silver hooks, wire and swarovski crystals and this is how they turned out Smiley

they also glow in the dark and under black light ^_^
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / mini scarfs! or scarflettes (5 new pg. 6) on: August 21, 2007 09:12:13 AM

the scarf that wraps around is actually done in 1x1 knit ribbing and i-cord while the flowers and decorations were done in crochet.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / dangly chiyogami brooches (they go jingle too) on: July 04, 2007 12:17:07 AM
i made a bunch of little stitch marker charm things for knitting then i also had a few unfinished wood pieces of hearts and stars (which i wanted to make pendants out of for necklaces) and pretty chiyogami paper i picked out just for the hell of it. so instead of making stitch markers i was thinking of combining all these together and this is pretty much what i got.

not a lot of variation but that's pretty much all the beads i had as far as matching with the paper. n_n; and i only finished two.

i'm open to suggestions in making them fun looking. :3
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my first recon shirt :) frilly sleeves on: December 04, 2006 12:20:22 AM
i wanted some new t-shirts from metropark (love their Ts but wow they're expensive) but i wanted to save up money for my dear bf's christmas present. then i remembered my bf had a few XL shirts that he rarely ever wears because XL isn't big enough for him. so he gave me his old gaming shirts such as this one, "Things you learn from video games." the pattern/idea originally came from T-shirt Makeovers by Sistahs of Harlem. i think it came out pretty cute and my bf thinks so too. too bad i'll only be able to wear it during the summer XD;;

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Sugar" (hidden vines scarf) w/ pattern on: December 02, 2005 09:00:53 PM
link to the original: click me

i really liked the scarf when i first saw it on that website until i saw it in real life and noticed that it didn't hold up so well and the flowers were very limp. it did inspire me to make up one kind of like it in an illustration i drew and eventually a month later i bought the yarn and decided to make my own version of it, one that will hold up well and not limp like the original, so here's my version. i call it "Sugar" naming it after the character i drew the floral scarf on. oh yeah, i forgot to mention that it is knit and crochet combo

edit: should've done this sooner. i noticed i'm missing a row where you start the leaf!

Pattern Notes

After knitting up the base and the first stem and leaf, go back to the other end to where the
cast on tail is, pick up sts using that tail on the RS of work with long side of work facing
you and start I-cord. This will only work if the yarn you're working with is mostly wool and
plied. When you run out of yardage, especially if you're using a plied wool yarn, use the spit
splice method to join more yarn. if not wool (IE: cotton, acrylic), just take the previous ball
you used, pick up sts, and proceed working I-cord.


CO 5 sts
Work stockinette for 2 rows
Row 3: K1, M1, K3, M1, K1
Row 4 and all even rows Purl
Row 5: K1, M1, K5, M1, K1

Continue working in stockinette for 15 [16, 17, 18] inches ending with RS facing.

Row 2 and all even rows Purl
Row 3: K1, SSK, K1, K2tog, K1

Do not turn work and move sts to the right side of DPN and begin working in I-cord for 13

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet edge help on: August 20, 2005 05:18:28 PM
hi all. i'm a bit confused with this crochet edge pattern. anyway, the first round is all double crochet, the next round is where i'm confused.

next round: 1 ch (does NOT count as st) 1 dc into first dc, *3 ch, 1 ss into same place as last dc**, 1 dc into each of next 2 dc, rep from * to end, ending last rep at **, 1 dc into last dc, ss to first dc. Fasten off.

i'm still a novice at crochet and a knitting pattern calls for this edging. i know the basics but the part where it says 1 dc into first dc and 1 dc into each of next dc confuses me most. do you stick the hook from the top or right INTO the base dc's

also here's an idea of what the edges look like. they look like picots.

EDIT: i just realised, in the UK, they used different crochet terms (from what i read on someone's blog) and that a DC in the UK is a single crochet in the US. is that true?
