1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet penguin.. on: August 06, 2008 12:17:04 PM
ok so im making a penguin for my friend, but i cant decide which to do.

thats with the white circles around the eyes. i like this one best but does it look too much like an owl?

and heres without the circles around the eyes. its kinda weird looking because i cant get a good pic with my webcam, but if i did this im hoping it would look like this

which is what i based mine off of.
and of corse i still have to make the beak and the feet and the wings, and plus its not stuffed yet, but thats next haha. so which one do you think looks better?

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / skinnier slacks on: March 29, 2008 10:12:54 AM
ok well my grandma has these slacks,
kindof like these..http://www.justiceclothing.com/justice/images/slides/400x400/pa20279_1.jpg
and they're too wide for her like at the hips(not the waistband) and thighs i guess. she wants to make them skinnier, obviously not too skinny but just so its not so big on her. so we were looking at this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129855.0
but the thing is, she can't take them in from the hips, where its too big, because there's pockets on the side(which is mostly where they're too big, around the pocket area), so if she takes them in from the hips, it would make the pockets really small. if she takes them in from right underneath the pockets, it gets kind of a bubble on the pocket...and if she takes them in from the knees down, it wouldn't do what she wanted because theyre too big AT THE HIPS/THIGHS.
how could she make them skinnier without making the pockets small, or anything?  Huh

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crocheted cow on: March 08, 2008 03:20:47 PM
ok well my friend's birthday is coming up and she LOVES cows. so i wanted to crochet a cow for her for a birthday present. but i'm not sure how it looks.
does it look better without horns...



or with horns?


also, does it look like a cow? if there's anything i can do to make it look more like a cow PLEASE let me know!
and just ignore the loose ends, im not finished with everything yet and the horns aren't attatched. and i still have to make the body. ill post it on here when i finish it. ohh also, how should i make the body? do i make it separate then sew it on to the body, or just decrease stitched a little for a "neck" then increase and make the body? like all in one? or if you have any other ideas of how to make it?  Huh

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / sewing amigurumi on: December 26, 2007 09:46:56 AM
ok, i just got a sewing machine for christmas yesterday Grin, and i was wondering how do u sew amigurumi? before i got a sewing machine, i just crocheted the amigurumi things, and when i needed to connect something to something else, i would just single crochet it to what it needed to be connected to. but it comes out looking weird...so i need to know how exactly you're supposed to sew things like- the ears onto the head- the head onto the body...ect. ?
