11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Weasley is our King shirt! With transfers and fabric crayons on: July 20, 2007 06:13:16 PM
Here is my shirt that I'm wearing to the book release.

I did all of this free hand with fabric crayons and a black fabric marker. It's my first "customized" shirt, so please be gentle with your comments.  

First, here is the transfer that I drew and colored in with the fabric crayons:

And here is the inspiration:

And here is my shirt (back):


Close-up of the words:

Thanks for looking!!
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Little House Elf **Updated with full costume** (very image heavy!!) on: July 18, 2007 12:02:11 PM
So, in all fairness to teapotdnky...I took my house elf hat & made a new thread. I made this for my daughter to wear (along with a pillow case dress I have yet to make, but will today) to the Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows book release this Friday night. The ears are floppy, but I think it works just the same.

And now she's tired of it, haha:

Comments=love.  Kiss

So here we go!! My little house elf!!

Here is the pillow case dress (which is much too big and I have to safety pin it in 2 places to get it to fit her, and I ended up cutting about 6 inches off the bottom).

And here is my little elf in full dress (before I cut the bottom off):

Really good shot of the hat & elf ears:
13  Texas / Texas: Central / Stitch-n-Bitch?? on: July 18, 2007 08:09:36 AM
Hey everybody! I just moved to Texas, Leander more specifically, and I am trying to find any craft groups that I could possibly join. I'm a big crocheter and have just taken up knitting, so I was also looking for a local Stitch-n-Bitch group to possibly meet up with. If you aren't familiar with Leander, it's just north of Cedar Park. I am willing to meet just about anywhere (except South Austin...don't know my way around there yet) in the Austin area. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Please Please Help!! I need bathroom ideas!! on: July 12, 2007 06:08:21 AM
Okay, so my husband and I decided we were going to paint a bunch of the rooms in our house (basically every room except for the living room, kitchen, & our room...for now...I'm thinking Pirates!! But he has to warm up to the idea first hehe), and since his favorite color is yellow, and I love him oh so much, I agreed that we would paint our master bathroom yellow. Now, I did have a lot to say in what shade yellow we picked out, and while I tried to pick a shade of yellow that was a little on the "pastel" side but would "pop" when painted, I had no idea what was in store when he began painting. The yellow is bright...we're talking "good morning sunshine" bright! The color is called "banana" and is seriously bright. I have no other way to describe it, really. And since I don't want to hurt my husband's feelings, I'm not going to say anything about repainting it. He's just so excited. So, I've decided to work with it & make the best of it. My question is...what do I do?? I'm a very theme-oriented person, so whatever I decide has to match. He was thinking of getting some wooden, chocolate brown blinds for the window in there, and I think I'm okay with that. I just have no idea what to do. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! I'll try and get some pictures up later today maybe, of the work-in-progress. He's not finished painting yet.
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My First Crocheted Lined Purse! on: July 01, 2007 03:19:53 PM
Phew! I was so nervous to line a purse (my sewing skills are almost nonexistent), but I am pleasantly surprised how nice this turned out (at least I think so). I used some spare black yarn from my stash (the flash washed it out) & an a pillow case from my favorite sheet set (they won't fit on my new bed Sad). I will be definitely using every inch of this fabric. I absolutely love it! Anyway, as always, any tips or comments are greatly appreciated. Smiley

The lining (I hand sewed it):

Not bad for a first purse, eh? It fits perfectly on my shoulder. I carried it on one shoulder & my diaper bag on the other, to church, and I barely noticed my purse at all. Grin
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Child's Lacy Top (pic heavy) on: June 30, 2007 12:25:04 PM
So, I just started a Crochetalong ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=179954.0 ) for this and I just finished it today. Took me a day & a half to complete. I got the pattern from the Lion Brand website. I'm so ecstatic about how great this turned out!! I'm thinking of making one for my friend's daughter's first birthday (in August).


Any comments & tips are greatly appreciated! Smiley

Happy hooking!!
17  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Lacy Child's Top Crochetalong (with pattern link) on: June 29, 2007 01:48:28 PM
I want to see if I can whip this up for my little girl while my son is gone visiting Grandma (July 4th-Aug 15th). I've been wanting to try this pattern out for a while now, and I'm finally going to have a little bit more time on my hands. Anyone care to join me? Smiley


18  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Parts of Dumblydore-I need some opinions! on: June 29, 2007 11:59:56 AM
I just finished my Voldy yesterday.

And have proceeded to start my Dumblydore! Here's what I have so far (2 body pieces, 4 sleeves, 2 hat pieces). I have to wait until we go out tomorrow to pick up some peach/skin-colored yarn for the head, hands, & ears.

Here's a close-up of the stars on the front of his body:

My question is...what color should I use to make his feet/shoes? I was thinking black but wondered if it would "clash" with the bright colors of the body/clothes. I love this yarn!! (Caron Simply Soft) I got it on clearance at Wally World one day, last year, I think. Anyway, my other question is should I use this for Dumbledore or for Professor McGonagall? I figured she was more "uptight" so I was thinking of using plain navy blue. Also, the original creator didn't give him any hair, but I wanted to. What do you think?

All opinions are greatly appreciated!! Thanks! Smiley
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Voldy loves Kimberly Ann!! on: June 28, 2007 01:56:13 PM
I crocheted this little man up for my bestest friend, Kimberly Ann. He was my first (but definitely not my last!!) crocheted doll, and I'm fairly content with it. Now that he's finished, I see where I made my mistakes & my next one (Dumblydore) will be better. Cheesy

Comments & tips are greatly appreciated!
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I need pattern tips & help!! Pretty please? on: June 26, 2007 07:24:27 PM
Hey everyone. I have officially become addicted to this site. Anyway, I have been searching the net for a sweater pattern for my teacup chihuahua. Her name is Molly & at her fattest, she weighed 3lbs. My hubby keeps the a/c at 74 degrees here & I've put a blanket in her bed, but she doesn't grasp the whole snuggle-under-the-blanket concept, so I want to crochet her a sweater. She's always shivering. Here's a picture of her:

Every pattern I've found for chihuahuas has been too big.

Any ideas?
