11  Giant Pincushion!!! in Completed Projects by loobie on: September 14, 2009 02:06:36 PM
I hope this is in the right, please it didn't seem to fit elsewhere  Undecided

This pincushion was made for my swap partner Sarcastra, in the Giant Multi Theme swap  Grin

One of her themes was Small Woodland Animals and she mentioned that she would like a desk top pincushion so I came up with this after spotting the super cute hedgehog fabric.

The finished dimensions are 9" square, and I used 2 fat quarters of quilters cotton fabric. Each piece has interfacing on the back and I just worked out what order to sew the bits together as I went along  Embarrassed Cheesy

I must admit, at one point I didn't think I was going to beable to turn in right-way out again after sewing one of the seams  Undecided

I hope you guys like this, any comments or advice would be much appreciated!

12  Travelling Craft Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by loobie on: September 14, 2009 01:39:05 PM
I made this bag for my Swap Partner Sarcastra, in the Giant Multi Theme Swap, and i'm really please with how it came out  Smiley

One of her themes was travelling, and she crochets so I decided to make a crochet bag for small projects that is small enough to travel with.

I came up with the pattern my self  Smiley

the outer part is basically a flat piece of fabric with ties and carry handles. The ties are so long, so that Sarcastra can stuff in as many things as she wants and not have to worry about the carry part of it been to small.

The inside pieces are all attached by pressed studs so that they can be removed and use seperately.

There is a draw string bag for crochet hooks, a large pouch for the item and a simple pocket for patterns and bits and bobs!

Any comments or advise would be very much appreciated   Cheesy

I received the most amazing package from Sarcastra today, there are so many clever things in it! I'll be posting pics a little later  Grin

Here is the best package I have recieved in lots of pictures!!!! Thank you so much for everything Sarcastra!

Everything together (it fills my sofa - my OH said its like christmas  Smiley)

Trees / birds

a tree silhouette pin board

Hand made / painted pins - these are so cute

Some gorgeous hand-stamped notecards - I love the stamps so much!


Amazing Place mats - I'm thinking these are from the Zakka Sewing book  Smiley I bought it recently and haven't made anything from it yet  Embarrassed  These are going to look so good on my table

mini bowls - Sarcastra said that these are made as wind chime pieces, but she thought they would be perfect as mini dishes, and I definitely agree!

Tiny things

This book is so perfect for me!!! I can't wait to bak something out of it! I think I'm going to use it to make lots of handmade christmas presents  Smiley - it does help my weight loss plan at all tho!

cute bracelet - this has really weeny flowers in resin, it gorgeous!


This stuff is so so cool!!!!
A delicious bag with sparkly fabric inside, absolutely covered in buttons and beads, this must have taken forever to make! its stunning!
some button hair pins, grips - I need to use these very very soon  Smiley
handmade blue and silver leaf buttons - I don't know what to use these on they are so precious!
recycled glass button banner Smiley

Neil Gaiman's American Gods

These are the cleverest items, I think these are my favourite for the thinking thats gone into them  Cheesy

Wednesday's Raven's on hair sticks; the Wolves that carried Shadow and Wednesday; Goddess earrings; Buffalo Hair grip (don't know the right name for this kind of hair thing sorry Undecided) ; a Liberty Dollar like the one plucked from the sky for Shadow; World Tree pony tailer.

Each item has the part of the book that it was inspired by attached to it. Love them so much!!

and tonnes and tonnes of extras - loads of hersey kissses (the cherry ones might be open already they are my favourite!) Lots of postcards, yummy candles, soap and a quarter from wyoming, and some wedding cake brads because I'm getting marreid next year, these are so cute!

thank you, thank you, thank you Sarcastra!!!!!

15  Baby Blanket! in Crochet: Completed Projects by loobie on: June 15, 2009 02:14:29 PM
I made this baby blanket for my niece, who was born last week.

She was a weeny 4lb 11oz, so this completely buries her atm!

Each stripe is made up of 3 rows of treble crochet, and the edging is one row of treble crochet then one row of double crochet.

I used Debbie Bliss' Baby Cashmerino so its very yummy and soft  Smiley

Any comments or advice would be more than welcome  Smiley

18  Molecule bag! in Crochet: Completed Projects by loobie on: April 07, 2009 11:08:18 AM
This is a bag that I made for my partner in The Big Bang Theory Swap - Its based on the In-Bloom pattern from The Happy Hooker!

The 'molecule' on the front is a random attempt at a caffeine molecule  Cheesy made with buttons!

I loved making this, it was so quick to do! I'm in the process of making one for myself (minus the molecule, but it'll be plus some sort of decoration)

Any comments or tips would be much appreciated, as this is only my second crochet project! (eep I've just realised the pic's aren't that great to be able to do that, must practice on my photography skills!)

19  Squashed Cat Coasters! in Crochet: Completed Projects by loobie on: April 03, 2009 11:33:05 AM
I've been lurking on this board of ages!!! but, after learning to crochet in January, I thought I'd post my first proper crochet project  Grin

I made these for my Mystery Swap Partner, as they were on her wists!

They are all made with single crochet stitch (sorry about the terrible quality pics - my photography skills leave a lot to be desired  Undecided)

here is the original thread that complete credit should go to for the idea!
