21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Tiny Cacti (+ link to pattern) on: November 22, 2010 12:40:55 PM

I've been making lots of these little dudes over the past few months. No reason really. They're just something quick easy to make without having to think too much. Plus my friends and family keep adopting them so I've yet to keep one for myself for more than a week! hehe! I was originally putting them in actual pots but I got kinda lazy about painting them so I made a crocheted pot too.

I wasn't going to bother posting the pattern because there are so many other cacti patterns out there already but the last time I posted pics of them on my blog, people asked for it so I typed it up anyway. Let me know if you make any! I'd love to see! Smiley

22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flower Magnets (+Link to pattern) on: November 04, 2010 12:45:38 PM

It started out as just a simple flower that I came up with while bored one day but it quickly multiplied! I got really into making them for a while and ended up with a bunch of them! hehe! I’ve been attaching magnets to the back and sticking them on the fridge (fridge was too ugly for pics so I had to take them outside for a prettier background!). I kinda wanna make one for a headband too!

I posted the pattern on my blog: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=432

23  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My Skunk Costume on: November 01, 2010 01:02:06 PM

I was inspired by this costume: http://www.yandy.com/Sexy-Skunk-Costume.php But I didn't like a few things about it and I didn't wanna pay almost $250 for my costume so I made my own version. Mine only cost like $30! (I love knowing how to sew! hehehe!) I reused the corset that I bought for last year's costume so I don't count that. The rest of the costume is made with silky furry fleece from Joanns. It's so soft! I'm probably going to wear the hood throughout the year! Cheesy I blogged about my Halloween here: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=412

24  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Fuzzy Bat Plushie on: October 29, 2010 10:35:16 AM

I made this plushie bat decoration using a scrap of silky furry fleece left over from my costume and some felt. I made a couple pom poms for my costume by making a big circle cinched shut at the top and I thought it would be an easy technique for making a plushie. So as soon as I finished my costume, I had to give it a try! I'm sharing the pattern and tutorial on my blog: www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=377
25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Glitter Gnome + Tutorial link on: May 19, 2010 12:19:05 PM
I saw a picture of a gnome that was completely covered in glitter. I'm absolutely obsessed with gnomes so I had to have one! I made my own with a gnome that I already had.

I hope you like him! Smiley I made a little tutorial on my blog if you'd like to see how it was done: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=270

This is what he looked like before:

He had gotten a little faded from the sun so I figured he'd be a good victim for my glitter painting! Smiley

26  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Cacti on: May 14, 2010 10:16:32 AM

I made these as Mother's Day gifts for my mom and grandma. I'm kinda obsessed with crocheting cacti right now. I know it's nothing too exciting, eeeeveryone has made cacti! Tongue But I can't stop making them. I'm also really into crackle painting right now. Which is what I did to the pots. I made a tutorial on that, btw, incase anyone wants to see how it's done: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=252

27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Crackle Painting (link to tutorial) on: May 06, 2010 11:07:42 AM
I've been crackle painting lots of tiny terra cotta pots lately. I'm going to make little amigurumi plants to put in them.

I put together a little tutorial on my blog http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=252 with some tips that I've learned.

I hope you like! Smiley

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Small items on circular needles? help! on: July 10, 2008 08:15:49 PM
Hi! I started learning how to knit a few months ago and have made several items on straight needles. But now I'm trying circular needles and am completely stumped! I'm trying to knit a pair of armwarmers and it just seems that the needles are way too long.  The pattern calls for 12 inch size 7 needles and they are 25 stitches around. I just don't get how this is supposed to work! lol!

I tried looking for videos on Youtube but all of them showed something with considerably more stitches being made which looks a lot easier. I'm pretty sure I understand how working on circular needles is done. It's just not working out for me because there are so few stitches to move around such a long length of needle.

Can anyone offer any advice?  Huh
29  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Shower Curtain ideas? on: June 08, 2008 09:25:20 PM
My bathroom is currently being remodeled so I get to completely redecorate it (yay!). But I'm having the hardest time finding a shower curtain that I like. I've literally been to every store in the area that sells them and not found anything I like. I want something with some color, a design of some sort, but I don't want it to be obnoxious. Everything I've found is either a solid color, a really boring print (flowers or beach themed), or childish. Anything with lively colors has monekys or something for a kids bathroom on it lol! So I've decided to just make a shower curtain but I really can't think of anything Sad

Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking about buying a nice fabric plain curtain that I could decorate in some way.
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with yarn weights? on: April 30, 2008 01:37:58 PM
I'm so confused about yarn weights! Can anyone help me understand? I've heard the terms: sport, fingering, DK, sock, lace, worsted, etc and it has my head spinning lol! Are any of them the same thing or are they all different? I know what worsted and sport weights are but the rest I don't think I've ever seen unless they're just different names for the same thing.
