1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Searching for a deer applique on: August 08, 2010 04:31:04 PM
I'm currently working on crocheting a blanket and matching pillows for my dorm. I've been inspired by forest imagery and mori girl lately, so I'm looking for a deer applique to use as an accent for a pillow. I haven't been able to find one, though, and I was wondering if someone has a link that I've missed somehow?

This squirrel applique is similar to what I'm looking for. http://www.crochetmemories.com/archive/seasonal6.html

Thanks for looking!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help needed drafting a pattern for lace wrist cuff on: March 27, 2010 09:57:08 AM
I'm looking to make something like this:

I'm having difficulty drafting a pattern, though. At first I thought I need to use crochet thread, but now I feel like that would be too small, so I'm thinking of moving up to a baby yarn. I've figured out that they used a shell stitch, what I think is a double crochet for the "mesh" looking part, and single crocheted around the entire thing. Any other ideas? Any help would be appreciated.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Luna Lovegood's Jacket on: August 01, 2009 06:33:06 PM
AHA! The wierd things that happen around here. I was cruising around Ravelry and ended up at a website I'd been to before called "Groovy Crochet." Guess what is in their sweater section that I hadn't noticed before? THIS JACKET! They call it the Aquarius Shag Jacket, second row, third from the right (the picture on the pattern page itself is broken):


I couldn't find this post, but remembered someone had said "shag" so the search function was handy Cheesy
Shocked I want to have a hundred of your babies!

I love Luna's jacket in the new Harry Potter movie, and I was hoping to recreate it (or at least find something similar). The only problem is that I have no idea what material is used! It looks like it was knitted or crocheted, possibly? Or someone took a shag carpet and cut it up? I honestly don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A long time ago I bought my then-boyfriend a Scarlet Begonias t-shirt (Grateful Dead ftw!). After we broke up we lost touch, and in recent conversations I found out that he wore the shirt to tatters and eventually framed it and hung it up. I'd like him to have something a little nicer than a grody old shirt to display in his new place, so I decided that an embroidery based on the shirt would be a cute idea.

The problem? This is the largest image of the shirt I can find:

Do you think I should keep rabidly googling until I find something better? Or should I attempt to redraw the girl? (The girl and the text are all that I'm doing.) That seems to be a simple solution, but I have the art skills of a 5 year old that can't hold a crayon.

Unrelated question: how do you separate strands of floss without making a huge tangled mess? I'm so terrible at this that I always end up using six strands.

Thanks in advance!

Hey poppeteers!

I decided recently at my first available moment, I'm going to make some Princess Bride poppets, mainly Westley and Buttercup.

As you can see, Buttercup has a square face shape. How can I alter the poppet pattern without making her look like a man?

Also: poppet mustaches. I'm psyched.
