1101  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Star Baby Blanket~Along on: June 25, 2007 09:24:28 AM
Oh wow, so I thought that this was an old crochetalong since it was started in Aug of 06, but a very kind fellow craftster pointed me here & after much searching of the page I found the skip to page # part (bear with me...it's only my 3rd day haha). So, I'm going to delete my original crochetalong & join this one! I'm going to do some stash busting with this one. I have a lot of pinks, so I'm worried that mine might look like a big star-shaped piece of bubble gum. haha. At any rate, hopefully I will get to start it today. I just started a sewing project last night (way new at sewing too yikes!), so hopefully I can work some on each project every day. Smiley

You are not allowed to advertise goods that you are selling on Craftster, but you are absolutely always allowed to give credit to the designer, and especially share free patterns with your fellow craftsters!

I'm very impressed with your first project! A real pattern with stitch patterns and everything! You are well on your way to becoming an ambitious knitter!

What exactly are "stitch" patterns?

 I relied heavily on the internet to help me along. I do remember when I learned how to pick up stitches (I used a crochet hook). I was so proud of mysef!

Thank you everyone for the great comments & encouragement!! It makes me want to knit something else!

Well, after posting my isabeau purse, I got all inspired to work on my handbag more...but when I went to find the pattern, I couldn't. I have it saved on my computer, but we are out of ink, so I couldn't print out another copy. Blah. So I am starting to attempt (there's the key word, attempt) to sew myself a diaper bag. I'm feeling the itch to crochet something though. That's my main talent, crochet.

But I really do want to finish my handbag. Maybe I need to pull it out & try it in a different yarn. I don't know yet. I'm crazy obsessed with Sugar 'n Cream yarns, but I'm cheap & the Lion Brand is more bang for your buck. haha.

that looks like the isabeau purse! it's adorable! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77317.0 there was a knitalong for this.

it looks awesome, especially for your first project!

Yes, it is the Isabeua Purse. I didn't know if saying exactly what it was & putting that I found it on chezplum.com would be considered advertising. But you are absolutely right!  Smiley I also purchased the pattern for the handbag & tote, but have since put it on the back burner to pursue other projects. I tend to do that, a lot! I start something & then get bored with it & start something else. haha.

These are too cute! I'm starting to become obsessed with cupcakes! I'd so pin one of those to my purse/tote.

That dress is amazing!
1108  COOKING / Dessert / My Kids' Birthday Cakes! on: June 24, 2007 10:50:17 AM
Hi everyone! I wanted to post a couple pictures of the cakes I made for my children's birthdays. Their birthdays are 9 days within each other. They are different genders & 4 years apart, so I couldn't really lump the birthdays together. Soooo...I found myself making 2 birthday cakes! Anyway, my son, who turned 5, is a HUGE Thomas the Train fan...so naturally I had to oblige & make him a Thomas cake. I got lucky & found a Thomas cake pan (Wilton has discontinued the line, although I don't know why!!) on Amazon & I used a Pooh Bear cake pan that I bought for myself a few years back, for my daughter's first birthday cake. So, here are the pictures!

Thomas Cake:

I am 100% positive that I tinted the icing way too dark for Thomas' face, but it was my first attempt at character cake decorating in about 10 years, so I was pretty content with it nonetheless.

Pooh Bear Cake:

Thanks for looking! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hey Everyone. Well, I am extremely new to this site, so please bear with me. I wanted to show everyone the tiny purse I knitted my best friend for her birthday last month. I found a free pattern for it, a great yarn, and went to town. Also, it was my first attempt at knitting, period. I used my little how-to-knit-and-crochet book and different how-to-knit websites to teach myself how to knit. I am so proud of myself! I am currently working on the same purse, only a bigger variation, with the same exact yarn (I loved it so much!). It turned out much smaller than I expected, but my best friend doesn't like big purses, so it actually worked out pretty good. I haven't posted enough times to be allowed to post my actual pictures, so you can view them here:

Here's a close-up of the stitches:

Anyway,I hope you all enjoyed it! If you have any other free & easy knitting patterns you'd like to pass on, I'd love to see them! Have a great day!  Smiley
