1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Ami Pattern Makers, when did you begin designing your own? on: March 05, 2011 05:48:40 PM
I have been crocheting for a few years now, i was doing mostly beanies and baby things and blankets but moved into Amigurumi in the past year and have so many ideas of my own id love to make. But dont really know where to begin with making an amigurumi pattern.

When did you feel like you were at the level to design your own? Should i just keep using patterns and practicing until im ready to do them myself? I probably need a good handle on all stitches and understand what each one does in a pattern before i can start designing my own. Im getting pretty good now and make ami's pretty well. (i could be better of course).

I would love to know when you started writing your own and your experiences and tips. Smiley

Cant wait to hear the experiences of other ami lovers!

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Bath bomb stuck in the mold, what did i do? on: August 20, 2010 11:32:29 PM
I made some bath bombs this afternoon, all was going well spritzed and put in mold and waited bout 20 mins and well it just wouldnt come out, i had to scrape it out with the end of a spoon. What on earth happened lol? Huh Did i get spritz happy? Its not fizzing or anything so im not sure if i did. Apart from the fact it stuck in the mold, it is really great consistancy is really good. Do i need to do something to the mold first?
Thanks  Kiss
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Searching for a whipped sugar scrub on: August 18, 2010 07:14:02 PM
I have searched high and low for a non greasy whipped sugar scrub. I did find one on line and it whipped up wonderful but as it was mostly coconut oil its just way too greasy.
Does anyone know of a whipped sugar scrub recipe that is less greasy? Would adding corn starch to this help a bit or would that ruin the whole whipped appearance?
Thanks sooo much.  Grin
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Baby Vest Pattern? Button up front. on: June 07, 2010 05:47:22 PM
I have been searching for a baby vest pattern with buttons at the front (not the pull over kind) They only way to explain what im after I guess is like a vest a man wears to a wedding. Im sure it cant be that hard to make a simple baby vest. I have been making my son pants from recycled cloths and thought it would be perfect to add a little vest. Or if anyone would know how to make one? I would be soooooo greatful!!

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / VENT! on: April 04, 2010 02:52:06 PM
I have been working on a really pretty scarf i found online for a few days now, and it has treble and double treble shells along the sides, and just as im coming to the end of the second side i have realised i did the trebles wrong.  Angry  I did them as yo 2 times, then pull thru 1 then 2 and so forth... instead of pulling thru 2 to begin with. Its made the shells all bulky but now i just have to keep going.

Lol i know totally pointless rant here i know sorry, but when i tried to explain to a friend (who is not crafty at all) she just stared at me with a blank expression lol.  Wink I needed to share my frustration with people who get it. ahhh well bulky shells it is... Ill take a pic when im done.. even tho i dont feel like finishing it now... but i will.  Smiley

Thanks for listening (reading lol)
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Looking for T Shirt Pattern...? on: March 25, 2010 06:29:30 PM
Hey gorgeous sewers.

Well I went out shopping in the hopes of finding myself a tshirt. I found NADDA! I have one im thinking of making a pattern from (yes will see how that goes, i havent done a pattern from another item of clothing). But was wondering if anyone knows of either free (or not) pattern. For a Tshirt, not a tight one, just a plain old tshirt. If i find a great pattern i swear im making one in every colour for myself haha.

Thanks HEAPS Smiley
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Where did you learn to crochet? And make your own patterns? on: February 27, 2010 05:52:30 PM
I am sort of new to crochet. I have done quite a few things now but as I am looking thru some of the things on here that you all have made and im just in awe.

I would love to get to the point where i can make my own patterns up, i have so many ideas, but dont know how people write them.
Is it just time and you sort of know what stitches do what to make areas stick out or in? (haha if that makes sence). I have made a few basic Amigurumi things.

I would love to hear how other people started off and how they learnt what they know Smiley
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Please help with this pattern... im soooo lost. on: February 08, 2010 02:50:40 PM
Im making an elf beanie for my sisters bub. I have gotten to round 18 but i just dont understand what im supposed to do. Below is some of the pattern.

Rnd 15: (Sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc) 5 times 30 sc.
Rnd 16: (Sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc) 5 times 35 sc.
Rnd 17: (Sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc) 5 times 40 sc.
0-6 month size only:
Rnds 18-19: Rep Rnd 17 working one more sc between inc each rnd 50 sc.
Next Rnd: Sc in each st around, working 3  incs evenly spaced around.
Next 9 Rnds: Sc in each sc around.

Am i supposed to do: Sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc, then Sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc.
And for round 20, how do i know when to increase the 3?

I hope all of that makes sence. Im going to make another coffee and hopefully some lovely wonderful crochet mastermind can help me hehe.  Cheesy
