11  All in a days work (IMG Heavy) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by MrsGraves on: October 13, 2007 08:06:28 PM
So being an Army wife, I am constantly surrounded by at least 6-10 boys who most times act like they are 12 years old.  Usually I hide in my craft room and they play video games in the living room and leave me alone, but this morning the three who actually reside in the house with me (Hubbles and two roomies) caught me looking at stencilry and declared they needed homemade shirts more than AIR!  After many hours of cutting, painting, fighting with the printer, and declaring that if they ever so much as think about asking for anything again they were getting an x-acto knife to a very select place, these shirts were born Wink

Hubbles .. er I mean Darth .. Micah/Clone Trooper, and Jake/Bobba.

Their real faces Tongue

Hubbles in his Zombie shirt .. isn't he precious?

Micah in his Dawn of the Dead shirt .. I am SO proud of this one, by far my most complicated shirt to date Tongue

Jake's 24 shirt .. apparently it's a running joke on the show?  Can't you tell I've never seen an episode?

Please let me know what you think!!

12  iPod touch holder! in Crochet: Completed Projects by MrsGraves on: October 09, 2007 09:17:55 PM
So I got an iPod touch and was paranoid about using it because I didn't want to scratch the screen at all, since one scratch would really mess up the whole touch feature and I have a bad habit of that.  So, I decided to whip up a holder for it to carry in my purse .. so now maybe I can take the protective plastic off that it came in .. maybe Wink

All cozy inside

Close up of the stitching and pretty yarn Smiley

Here's the finished product, done on an F hook in TLC Wiggles.  For some reason in the picture you can really notice where I started each round, but I promise in person it's not that obvious.

14  Lots of finished projects! in Crochet: Completed Projects by MrsGraves on: September 28, 2007 07:49:09 PM
Somewhere in between moving across the country and starting a new job I found time to crochet, but didn't find time to take pictures of completed projects.  So, here's a bunch Smiley

Connor modeling a scarf with a star embellishment .. my first try at crocheting a scarf vertically.

An Amineko kitty I made for my best friends son before we moved across the country

And an elephant I made for her daughter .. the pattern for this was a bit wonky and I wasn't all too happy with it but she loved it so I guess that's what matters.

Our roomie is deploying soon and asked for a hat he could wear under his kevlar helmet .. hence, the cammo hat.  Then Hubbles complained he wanted a hat too, so he got a hat resembling a bumblebee Tongue

And a little jack-o-lantern bucket I whipped up one day from my grandmom's old pattern.

Right now I'm working on the round ripple afghan for one of the two girls I am a Nanny for .. here's the progress so far:

15  Robot + Dinosaur = Happy Hubbles in Stenciling: Completed Projects by MrsGraves on: September 28, 2007 12:23:18 PM
Did this stencil off stencilry for my Hubbles a few weeks ago .. I was really nervous because it was on his favorite shirt ever and it's a weird henley type material (I think that's what it's called) but it came out pretty well .. a bit of bleeding and it was really scratchy and rough at first but after a wash it softened out perfectly!

Not the greatest picture, but if you've ever tried to get your Husband to pose for a picture in something you made you know what I'm up against.  Ignore our silly roomie too. Smiley

I was being lazy and didn't want to take out the digital camera and hook it up, so I made Hubbles hold it up so I could take a pic with Photo Booth .. haha Wink

I'm just starting the 17th round .. it's coming together really quickly!  I wish I had used a bigger hook ... making this with an F hook is no one's idea of a good time Wink

17  Re: Love your wedding? Then show off your photos here! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by MrsGraves on: September 04, 2007 09:06:02 PM
Well our wedding was over a year ago now (time flies!) but I just found this forum so I thought I'd share a few of my favorite pictures .. the whole thing was done in less than a month for under $3,000 .. I'm still amazed how perfect everything turned out!

The centerpieces were half-crafted (haha), favors were hand made, cake was hand made (by the best man), flower bouquets and boutineers (I cant spell that word!) were hand made, and the flower girl dress was hand made (by my Mama) .. so it was a pretty crafty wedding! Tongue

If you want to see more pics they're at www.ggravesphoto.com/davidandnicole

My baby sister in her homemade dress

You can see the homemade favors, centerpieces, and bouquets pretty well there

And my favorite picture from the whole wedding:

Thanks for letting me share!

18  Pattern Suggestions for Pretty Yarn? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by MrsGraves on: September 03, 2007 10:55:37 AM
I picked up 4 skeins of Yarn Bee Mosaic Twist at Hobby Lobby on sale for 99 cents the other day, and they are such pretty colors that I'm hesitant as to what I should craft out of them, especially since there isn't a whole lot of it .. each skein is only 3 oz .. any suggestions?

Here's what the skeins look like:

I got 2 of each color

Oh those are amazing .. do you by any chance do commissions or trades?  I would love a drawing done of my lab mix, Connor

20  Re: Really Cute Flower Headband (spring is in the air!!!)NOW WITH PATTERN in Crochet: Completed Projects by MrsGraves on: July 25, 2007 06:23:04 PM
I whipped one of these up in about 20 minutes this evening .. I love it!  I did a double crochet on one side and a hdc on the other just to make it a bit wider, just my preference.  I may do both sides in dc on the next one for even a little bit wider Smiley  Whatcha think?
