31  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Frog Prince Pin Cushion on: December 29, 2008 08:30:03 PM
I made this litle guy as I was in need of a cute pin cushion! I also made one for my friend as she is just starting to sew!  It was fairly easy and I am working on a pattern now!  Let me know what you think.

32  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bubble Scarf on: December 12, 2008 03:48:11 PM
I made this scarf ages ago, adapted from a baby blanket pattern.  Its a nice soft acrylic as I'm allergic to wool.  It took longer than i thought, but turned out well.  No action shots sorry!  I'm horrible at taking self portraits.

33  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fun Toys! IMG Heavy on: December 12, 2008 03:46:13 PM
I've been busy making lots of toys for christmas this year!  All of them have bells in them so they rattle.  I made up the pattern for all of them EXCEPT the belugas .... pattern found here:http://planetjune.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4&products_id=25

I love making toys!
34  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / what is this mess? on: December 05, 2008 12:53:02 PM
i'm not sure if this is a total disaster or not!?!  This is my very first quilt.  I don't read instructions on how to do things, so I just plunged in head first.  There are a few gals in my knitting circle who have talked about their quiting projects and i asked enough questions to get started at least.  I've only finihsed the top part and am now going to do a bit of research on what comes next.  i know there is a backing i have to do and some edging.  of course there is also the quilting process it'self which makes me a bit nervous.  i am thinking of just following the outlines of the blocks so the quilting stitch is a big grid.  not too pretty but sounds easy enough to me.  this was supposed to be for my son's 2nd b-day, but that was 6 months ago, so now it's an xmas present hopefully!  any comments or suggestions??  i do love the fabrc, just not sure if it looks good together.  i didn't have an clue what it was going to look like, i bascally just started sewing blocks together after I'd completed them ..... hmmm.

I'm looking for this pattern in a 12 or 14 if anyone is wanting to sell theirs!  thanks.  I'm trying not to spend $30 on a new pattern!

36  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Chewbacca, Leia and a random little Robot . 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!!

37  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 10ft. Scarf 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.

38  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Striped Baby Blanket 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!

39  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Strawberry Reversable Dress 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!

40  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dino Booties 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!
