1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mario Brothers Boo Pouch on: February 08, 2013 05:15:52 PM
Hi everyone! This is my latest project! The Super Mario Brothers Boo Pouch!

My friend absolutely loves the character Boo, so I decided to make this for her as a birthday gift. I jumped on the Tunisian Crochet bandwagon, and used the basic stitch to make the pouch. The red border is two rows of single crochet.

Yarn: Vanna's choice, 100% acrylic
Dimensions:  height - 6"; length - 10"
The pouch is lined in red with a blue zipper.

Let me know what you think!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Calvin and Hobbes swap?! on: June 29, 2008 12:40:52 AM

I'm not sure if there have been any Calvin and Hobbes Swap so far (I wasn't able to find anything in my search). Anywhos, I've been re-reading lots of Calvin and Hobbes comics lately, and maybe we can do a swap? Make a Hobbes plushy or some magnets with funny quotes from Calvin. I only have some sketchy details that can be worked out.

Anyone interested?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / identify stitch on: January 18, 2008 07:46:43 PM

There's this nice stitch that kinda looks like zippers (see the graphic attached). I used this stitch before on a scarf with several colors, and I can't seem to remember how to do it. Does anyone else know? Thanks!

I made these earrings a while ago, mostly as gifts for my friends!

5  COOKING / Dessert / Vanilla Cupcakes! on: July 17, 2007 01:24:20 PM
I made cupcakes the other day using Billy's Vanilla Vanilla Cupcake recipe that I found here, http://52cupcakes.blogspot.com/2006/05/billys-vanilla-vanilla-cupcakes-with.html. I didn't have cake flour so I found a substitute using all purpose flour and corn starch. I used the buttercream frosting as well, and decorated my cupcakes using raspberries and chocolate pieces.

I thought they tasted pretty good and they were really pretty too!

6  COOKING / Dessert / White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake on: July 17, 2007 01:12:56 PM
My dad planted a raspberry vine/bush thing, and so I am always picking raspberries and storing them. As a result, I decided to use a whole bunch of them at once by making a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake! It tasted sooo good!

I used the recipe at AllRecipes.com, found http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/White-Chocolate-Raspberry-Cheesecake/Detail.aspx.

I followed the recipe exactly except I used a store bought cake crust pan thing, and so I had some batter left over which I made mini-cheesecake (using vanilla wafers to make a mini crust).

7  COOKING / Dessert / Strawberry Scones on: July 08, 2007 06:58:27 PM
I'm not sure if scones are really desserts, but  Wink

I made these strawberry scones using a recipe that is at the end. I had fresh strawberries lying around the house, and they were really sweet naturally.

I whipped up a quick cream cheese frosting, and frosted it onto the scones, because the scones themselves weren't very sweet.

I couldn't find the recipe link, but I had written it down on a piece of paper.

1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped into smaller bite size
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon baking poweder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract (optional really)

1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in one bowl.
3. Then, cut in the butter into the dry mixture, until you get nice coarse crumbs.
4. Add in your strawberries and then add in your milk at once.
5. I then floured a surface and rolled out my dough into a circle about half an inch thick (I think). Then I cut the dough like I would cut a pizza, into triangular slices.
6. You can sprinkle the top with sugar or brush the top with egg yolk, but I did neither. I instead, I put some frosting on the scones once they were done.
7. Anyways, place your scones on a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet for about 15 minutes. The scones don't spread that much, so you don't have to worry about placing the scones far apart, but don't put them to close either.

This yields approximately 12 triangular scones.
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / So Many Raspberries! on: June 27, 2007 10:41:07 PM
So, my dad planted a raspberry vine..err...bush? and there are so many raspberries now! In fact, occasionally, a raspberry or two will fall to the ground because we didn't see it. Any suggestions on what to do with these raspberries besides eating them right after picking them (and washing them of course, but you get the idea)?!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Ripping Ends on: September 04, 2005 11:49:53 PM
Basically, I have a spiral bound notebook and the cover is made of paper. The cover tends to rip off at the spirals, and eventually, the cover falls off itself. I'm too cheap to buy those expensive plastic cover ones, so does anyone have any ideas as to how to keep these covers intact?!

Thanks in advance!  Grin
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / reading crochet language on: October 31, 2004 01:52:46 PM
I can crochet, but I never learned how to read the instructions. I have trouble understanding the directions, so I'm wondering if anyone knows any sites that can help. ^^
