42  Chewbacca, Leia and a random little Robot . in Halloween Costumes by mamaedgar on: November 07, 2008 07:54:41 PM
Here are the halloween costumes i made this year.  My husband decided to be chebacca as he's really good at the weird noise the character makes.  and i decided to be leia as it was easy and comfy (i'm 4 1/2 months pregnant too).  when i decided to make the costumes for us, i'd already started my son's.  he wanted to be a robot.  i really wanted to go all out and do a real box robot, but figured that would be too hard for a 2 year old to handle.  so i covered chair foam with felt and attached bits and peices to make the robot body, then added dryer vent arms and crochetted a hat with little antenna.  he loved it, it was the hit of the party!  the chewbacca costume was quite easy to do, but the mask didn't tuen out too well.  my husband didn't wear it most of the night as he could barely see out of it.  sorry to ramble!!

43  10ft. Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: November 07, 2008 07:41:06 PM
I got a little carried away with my foundation chains and ended up with a 10 foot scarf!  It's made of three skiens of red yarn (paton i think) acrylic/wool blend.  It's not too wide as i ran out of yarn, however it seems to be more managable than wider scarves I've made.  I wear mostly black so the red really pops!  the stitch i used was sc alternating front loop and back loop only.

The first photos are of the dolls that I sent to jpoparock.  Also sent her crochet book marks and some cute bunny stationary!  The last photo is of the dolls that she sent me!  They don't have faces as I asked not to have faces and they are super cute!!!

I colored in their faces after i took these photos!  I hope that jpoparock can post photos too!

The dolls the jpoparock sent me:

45  Striped Baby Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: October 20, 2008 09:04:20 AM
I made this for a frien of mine who is having a baby soon.  It's dc and puff stitch, then I did sc lines of the tourquise.  It's about 44" by 38" not including the fringe.  I hope she likes it!  At least it will be warm!

46  Re: Black Apple Doll Swap - CLOSED - SEND OUT 10/18 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by mamaedgar on: October 03, 2008 11:50:21 AM
wow! i've been sewing for 2 hours now ..... really didn't think i needed THAT much time!  i had to re-do the arms and legs of the dolls as they were too skinny ..... if you haven't done them yet. ...... i found using the pattern lines as my sewing line instead of cutting was best, also sewing on the fabric before cutting is also helpful.  the first set took me FOREVER to turn!  oh and here is a photo of another mishap i had.  I put a lot of add-ons on one of the dolls which made turning it SUPER hard.  It was stuck in this position for about ten minutes before i could wrench it free!  don't worry jpoparock, i don't think the photo gives anything away. i'm all done now, just waiting for the faces to dry!

48  Strawberry Reversable Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: September 25, 2008 08:16:39 PM
I made this for my niece.  She's one, so by the time next summer rolls around it'll fit her.  my two year old son is modelling, i had to chase him all over the place to get photos!  i used butterick 5439 and legthened the jumper by 3" to make it a dress.  i was going to sew the bloomers too, but ran out of time.  you can see from the photos that it's reversable too!

49  Dino Booties in Crochet: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: September 25, 2008 08:09:04 PM
I made these booties for a baby shower, using the pattern from Candy Babies.  I had to tweak the spines quite a bit.  I'm happy with how they turned out and they were a hit!

50  Skinny Maternity Jeans!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mamaedgar on: September 13, 2008 12:33:47 PM
I love skinny jeans, but had to give then up last time i was pregant, but this go around I'm holding on to them for as long as possible!  Right now i'm 12 weeks, so I hope these will last!  I used the tutorial here:


which was great!  Since my jeans were super low cut to begin with I ended up keeping the belt loops.  In my early stages I'll be able to wear a belt, then when I get farther along I can just get rid of the belt, or even the belt loops if they look funny.  I decided to do a very high stretchy waist using an old shirt, doubled for extra thickness.  That way I can fold it over or have it totally cover my belly! Here's the photos:
