21  Crochet Christmas Tree "Scarf" Garland in Winter Holidays by starfishsea on: December 05, 2008 09:39:23 AM
I got the bright idea of making a scarf garland for my treenot realizing how long it would take haha.

It wouldent of been to bad if I had started it in November so I didint have to spend three straight days trying to get it done so I could put it on my tree.

If I had to do it again, I would use a smaller hook/less fluffy yarn for the trim Smiley I do plan on gluing beads on some color panels, but Ill do any embellishing after Christmas, I just wanted to get this puppy up!

I do love it though, it makes the tree look cozy!

The pictures seem kinda small, but I do have bigger ones on my Flickr  Grin

Woohoo I received my package from ehinders!! It was super fast too sheesh lol.

I LOVE it!

Sorry for the not so good picture, it was really dark and rainy today. I got an awesome red ornament that is embellished with winter themed buttons and sayings (I especially love the snowflake buttons!) and a really cool Christmas box with some pretty ribbon around the sides of it.

Even though it's a Christmas box, I'm going to use it to hold all of my bracelets lol.

Thanks ehinders, I love it all  Grin

23  Handmade Christmas Trees in Winter Holidays by starfishsea on: November 21, 2008 01:11:15 PM
I've been meaning to make these for *years*, but I just always got caught up in Christmas gift making that I never had much time for decorations. Since I have PLENTY of time on my hands these days, I decided to just sit down and do them.

They were super fast, maybe a half hour each..tops. I think some other colors might be fun, like a white tree with aqua and magenta accents. They are also pretty cheap to make so I definately could make more.

This white one might look kind of sparse as far as decor goes, but the yarn is just so soft and fuzzy with a hint of sheen...that it really didin't need much added decoration.

EDIT: The pictures must be a little to large since they look a little distorted here, but I have nicer versions on Flickr Smiley

The green one is probably my favorite, I might even make another one just because it looks so Christmasy to me Smiley

See that glittery Noel decoration? I just bought that for $2.50 in the $1 (haha yeah doesen't make sense) section at Target! I love all things glittery. That would also be super easy to replicate with wooden letters from Michaels.

Here is the crochet retro christmas ornament from roxycraft.com:

For this ornament I just took a regular red bulb and glued white fun fur to the top. The face is just a rub on transfer from Michaels Smiley

This is just a little embroidery on glittery felt.

25  Reto Christmas Ornament and Ami Turkey in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by starfishsea on: November 19, 2008 01:12:03 PM
This was a super easy pattern, and took me about 3 hours (that includes lunch and email checks Tongue).

I did get a little confused on the wing pattern, but it all worked out. Pattern fromhttp://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com

The retro Christmas ornament pattern is from http://www.roxycraft.com and was made for a Christmas ornament swap I was just in. I used Patons Brilliant in the silver sparkly color (they were out of red bah) and Caron Simply Soft in a cranberry color. The red definately looks better in person....it has a nice sheen and is more cranberry then red.

The one problem I did have though was I coulden't find my F hook at the time and had to use G, which the Patons yarn was to small for so you can see a bit of stuffing showing. Ah well, at least they are almost the same color Smiley

Here is the mommy owl from the pattern "Little Owl and her Mommy" from the book Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet by Ana Paula Rimoli. It's a super easy pattern, and only took a few hours. I embroidered "feathers" on the wings too  Grin

Here is mine! After I took the picture I realized you can still see a string wrapped around the legs, so I tucked it in  Grin
