21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / New to crocheting and i really need help! on: November 01, 2007 02:29:56 PM
I am really new to crocheting. As in only started like a few days ago... I am attempting a pattern and it says chain 4 then do 9 double crochets in first chain. How do i do 9 DC in one chain? Wouldn't 1 DC go in each part of the chain? Or do I put 2 in each? If someone could explain this to me I'd be extremely grateful, because I really need to know, and i can't ask my mom because its something I'm making for her and I'm trying to be very discreet about it...

Any help is appreciated Smiley
22  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mommy's Quilt for my Auntie {pic obese} on: October 09, 2007 01:58:56 PM
lots of patience=masterpiece!
this is the quilt my mom made for my dads sister. It tok quite a long time. I remember going to the fabric store and spending LOTS of money ;P this quilt took probably around a year. I'm sort of sad to see it go. The quilted part is called puzzlepieces. Well i don't have too much else to say so onto the pictures!

23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / i don't know what to call it but i made it :D on: September 29, 2007 08:41:58 AM
well i bought this small sewing kit to toss in my purse for those little malfunctions that happen sometimes. it was all in this little plastic case that once my brother opened it it broke...

at first i was angry but then i decided to make a new case. i actually like it better because it has pockets that i can tos stuff in and it seems easier to use...
well onto the pics!



halfway open


i'm thinking of using the big open spot as a pin and needle holder...

one pocket

second pocket

there are 4 pockets. i also made a pink one for my mom cause she wanted one, and she had it at my grandmas and my grandma wants one for her money, but with a snap instead of a bow.... we'll have to wait and see how that turns out Smiley

comments and criticism are appreciated

sorry the pics are so huge...

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / tote for school :) on: September 23, 2007 11:32:07 AM
i needed a bigger tote for school annd wanted a red one so after rummaging through countless drawers of fabric i came up with a bag. the outside is a red canvasy material, and the inside is black vinyl. it can be reversible but i prefer to have the vinyl facing in...

hanging up. there is a pocket on either side of the bag, they aren't quite visible in the pic...

inside. there are 2 pockets on the inside. i use one for my book, and the other for my glasses case.

26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / cell phone holder! on: September 23, 2007 11:28:31 AM
so my mom is always complaining about not being able to find a small enough cell phone holder. i was feeling sick this morning and saw the bottoms of a pair of pants i had, and thought to myself
*those would work for a cell holder*
i grabbed them and without measuring the cell first i started cutting. i was too lazy to use the sewing machine so i hand sewed it. lucky for me the size was perfect. i also found some snaps in my drawer and decided to try those so, after hammering my thumb, stabbing myself with needles countles times, getting angry because i couldn't find the right snap and my cat steeling my scissors later i got this...

and an idea of the colour of the shirt (this is not the shirt)

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / West 49 Shirt turns tank on: September 04, 2007 06:24:48 AM
I made this tank top out of a west 49 shirt my brother gave me. i used the sleeve for the straps. I managed to cut around the logos and they didn't end up on my shirt. I am very pleased with this except it has a blue stain on the one strap that isn't very noticeable, but i will bleach the shirt anyways XD
