21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: New bag with braided handles on: April 02, 2009 08:39:30 AM
Sweet! Looks nice and roomy, and I am am seriously liking that purple. Cheesy

Thanks!  I was gonna switch out the purple with a cut up gray t-shirt, but then my sister and I decided that the purple looked better.

Hey everyone!  I made this bag over the weekend and overall I am pretty happy with it.  I hand braided the handles and I added three pockets - one on the outside and two on the inside.  One pocket on the inside also has three spots for pens or crocheting needles.  This bag was also way inexpensive to make - the purple fabric was given to me from a friends stash and the lining fabric was really cheap from the as-is section at Ikea!  I hope you guys like it!

23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Thomas the Tank Engine bag on: March 20, 2009 04:49:24 PM
Hi everyone!  I just made this tote bag for my little cousin for his second birthday.  He loves Thomas the Tank Engine so I made this bag for him to put his trains in.  It took about 2 1/2 hours to make (I mess up a lot!) and it is reversible.  The bag looks a little wonky because the only thing I had on hand to stuff it with was yarn balls - it looks better in person!  Hope you guys like it!

So let me start by saying that this is my first challenge! ... and my project did not turn out exactly how I would have hoped it would ... or as good as I was hoping for.  I became pressed for time so I had to skip a lot of the details that I planned to include.  This was my first time embroidering (if thats what you can call the attempt that I made!)  I chose "Watching the Wheels" by John Lennon.  The middle is his face and he is dreaming of peace ... the line in the song that I picked to focus on was 'People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away".   I was inspired by the picture of John lennon that I posted below.  I changed the lens of his glasses to tires since the song is called watching the wheels and I made the tiny thought  bubbles shaped like flowers. I just embroidered right onto a t-shirt.  I hope you guys like what I came up with, hopefully I will be able to go back and focus on the detail another time.  I hope this all makes sense ... I'm pretty tired!

in progress


Good luck everyone!

I crocheted this wallet type thing for a girl at work who wanted a wallet type thingy to hold receipts in for her other job. I sort of based it off of a little pouch that I had made before and I sort of made a pattern from that.  I made some adjustments and I think it turned out alright ... it's a little wonky, but it's not terrible.  Hope you guys like it!

These are great!! Do you have any real idea of how they're going to go, or do they just develop organically?

Usually I don't have any idea, but some of the kids asked me to put  certain things in it.  Naomi wanted me to put hearts in it so I added some of them for her.   Thanks everyone.

I made these when I was at work - it gets boring watching kids after school everyday and when they don't need help with home work and stuff like that I doodle to fill my time.  I work at an after school programs so all of the kids want me to make a doodle for them wit their name in it ever since I made the first one with my name in it.  These are the three I had on hand - The top one with the pink around it is for one of the kids and it says "Naomi" in it,  the one on the side with the green around it is just random doodles, and the one on the bottom with the blue around it says my name, "Liz" in it.  Hope you guys like them!

30  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: One skein scarf <3 on: January 04, 2009 08:25:56 AM
Thanks everyone!

I love the yarn you chose.  What is it?

I hope that isn't the only pattern you like in the book.  I adore the Fat Bottomed Hat personally and I am in the middle of the PDA right now.  Besides, it is awesome pulling out a book entitled Happy Hooker.   Wink

The yarn is Sensations brand, but I'm not sure of what the color name is, but I got it at Joann fabrics about a year or two ago.  It was one of the huge skeins that was like $9 dollars, and I think the still sell the exact yarn at Joann's.

And NO, this is absolutely not the only pattern I like from the book.  I can't wait to make them all!

thats an interesting pattern you have there... where did you get it?

The pattern is from the Happy Hooker book by Debbie Stoller
