2  SLIPPERS! *With Pattern* in Crochet: Completed Projects by andrena on: October 22, 2009 01:12:45 PM
Made these for my little sister, I want them now!

They were very easy i mish mashed a few different patterns. I can provide a pattern/tut if anyone is interested in fabricating a pair of these slippers.

I use the really expensive yarn from the renown dollarama! Your basic acrylic stuff, i used a 4.5mm hook

I chose 3 colours (its really up to you whether you want 1-22+ colours)
I did two rows for each colour before changing the colour.

Round 1: Ch 1, make 7 dc in first loop
sl st in first dc of round 1 (7dc)(pink)

Round 2: Make 2 dc in each dc of round 1 sl st in first dc of round 2 (14dc)(pink)

Round 3: *Make one dc in first dc, make two dc in next dc* rep from* around. sl st in first dc of round 3 (21dc)(yellow)

Round 4: *make one dc in first dc, make one dc in next dc, make two dc in next dc* rep from* around. sl st in first dc of round 4 (28dc)(yellow)

Round 5: Make one dc in each dc around (28dc)(orange)

Round 6: Same as round 5 (28dc)(orange)

Round 7: Make one dc in then next 20dc.(pink)

 turn the slipper is worked in rows.

Work back and forth on those 20sts for 15 rows (you may want to make this smaller or bigger I made these for my LITTLE sister who has BIG feet size 9!!! mine are 5 so its really trial and error)

when done row 15, fold the end in half and crochet the back loops together to form a heel.

To make the slipper a bit more snug i made sc around the edge (60 sc)(Pink)

Excluding the 8 sts across the toe i did another row sc. (52sc)(yellow)


Ch 32 sts, turn
sc in the back of each chain

attach each end about 2.5" apart to the same side.
attach a button on the opposite side, mid distance between where you attached the ends of the straps.
attach. he he

Did you follow that? Good now do it again and you will have a pair!

Any questions,corrections or praises, just send me a pm. I realize this pattern may confuse you as i have never written a pattern/tut before.


Here are some pictures to better explain the rounds and what the bottom looks like.

3  Strap Design Question in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by andrena on: October 21, 2009 01:00:23 PM

I have made these slippers for my little sister but I'm hung up on where to put the straps I have 3 ideas that I have VERY roughly illustrated using paint.

This is a few shots of what they look like right now so you can get an idea

Now here are my ideas for possible strap placement.




All input would be much appreciated as I like them all!

4  Festive Skull Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by andrena on: October 21, 2009 09:57:54 AM
As Halloween is on its way I thought this would be a more than appropriate project!
 This is my first sweater, and I have to say I'm happy with it. 

I don't usually roll my eyes back for pictures! Tongue ah well

Yah! check out my pipes!

This is from Stitch n' Bitch. It was a good first sweater as you learn 3 different bind off methods!

I did have to pick up the stitches on the bottom and make it a bit longer. Unfortunately I ran out of the gray wool hence the contrasting bottom. Also I made the neckline a bit to tight in the front.
Any suggestions on how to fix that would be appreciated.

5  Bunny Foo Foo Cell Phone Holder in Knitting: Completed Projects by andrena on: October 20, 2009 10:49:32 AM
Yes, this is in fact a stitch and bitch nation pattern.

I think this is a great little project ... and well its simply adorable!

this is the front view. As for the offensive red background, blame my IKEA couch!

No Bunny Foo Foo would be complete with out a little bunny tail Tongue 

Here is what a phone would look like in the holder, the fastener being snaps. Maybe not the best choice as they take a bit of force to close, possibly damaging your phone if you're not careful.

6  A question for all you green thumbs out there! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by andrena on: October 20, 2009 09:57:34 AM

So my b/f and I recently helped to clean his parents garden out for winter. There were some sweet banana peppers left behind, him and I being HUGE fans salvaged what we could. 
The peppers are only 3-4 inches long, which is really small.

The question is, given the peppers size are the seeds mature enough to plant and grow our own peppers?

We have bought chillies from the grocery store before and dried them out and planted the seeds. This worked perfectly. I'm just concerned if the baby sweet banana peppers seed any good for planting.

8  Swirly Curly Mural in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by andrena on: October 07, 2009 07:57:14 AM

This was the first mural I ever did. This one is completely free hand, I wasn't able to use the projector for this one as it is in a hallway. Even getting pictures of it is difficult!
I'm really happy with how it turned out. It just sucks that when I move I can't take it with me  Cry.
