1  Newbies First Quilt (Image Heavy) in Quilting: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: March 09, 2010 04:53:13 PM
Here is my first attempt at quilting.  I saw this fabric and wanted to make a small quilt for my son who loves thomas the train.  This quilt is just crib size so i figured it was a good place to start.

This is what 2 hours and $6.27 got me:

I used a fleece for the backing to make it nice and soft

Any advice of improvements I can make would be greatly appreciated.

2  Another Hat and Scarf Set in Crochet: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: January 15, 2010 04:02:42 PM
My five year old just loves when I make her hats and scarfs, and she loves even more going to the store and picking out her own yarn.  Well we are in the process of packing and moving (woo hoo) and as I was packing up my yarn  Cry she saw this baby soft pink homespun that I feel in love with (but realized once I tried to crochet with it that it was'nt worth the headache), she just had to have a hat with it.

So I pulled out the biggest hook I had (think it was a K maybe a P) and made her this set.  Again she loves how soft it is and the color.


Thanks for looking

3  Colorful Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: January 13, 2010 05:17:20 PM
I found this yarn at Joanns and I just loved all the colors and how soft it was.  I decided to make myself a hat with it but once my daughter saw it she feel in love so I gave it to her.  I will have to say she looks much better in it than I do lol.  I love the trinity stitch but because of the colors and fluffiness of the yarn, I think the stitch definition kind of gets lost, but I still like how it came out.

4  Eloise Little Princess Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: December 16, 2009 05:25:54 PM
Well I got a late start on my christmas presents but I've been banging them out pretty good.  This is the latest completion, this is for my cousin Eloise.  This is the Little Princess Cardi pattern from the Lion Brand Website.  It is so easy, worked in straight hdc, and it only took me a like a day and a half to finish so it was awesome.  I found these really cute button at Joann's that I thought make it very feminine.

5  Topsy Turvy Doll in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: August 22, 2009 04:10:59 PM
I started making this doll like 7 months ago and with so many projects going it kind of got pushed to the side.  Well I came across the bag this morning in my craft closet and thought she finally needed to be put together and made whole.

And once my daughter caught sight of her, well I could'nt get her finished fast enough for her.  So here she is finally finished:

I need alittle work on my faces, the asleep side looks like shes angry.  But my daughter loves her.

Thanks for looking Smiley

6  Novelty Egg Holder (image heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: December 15, 2008 07:01:43 PM
I found this free pattern on Raverly(my new best friend) and once I saw it I just knew I had to make one for my daughter who just loves the I LOVE EGG site.  I think this is just the cutiest idea, its a knitted egg that will hold a chocolate egg.  I know this is more for easter time I would think but I just whipped one up in like an hour to test it out and it is now my new stocking stuff.  I found some chocolate christmas eggs that fit perfectly inside.  By the time christmas comes around I will have a whole army of eggs lol.

I put a little flower on top of her beanie

heres a pick of the chocolate eggs sticking out from its bottom

7  Christmas Presents For The Little Ones (Image Heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: December 15, 2008 06:54:18 PM
I've been hookin away like no tomorrow with the clock ticking faster trying to get all the presents that I want to make my little ones done.
With the way the economy is these days and with so many unsafe toys for little children who like to put everything in there mouth, I want to make some special gifts for my children this year that they can love and care for.  I still have like 10 more things that I have on my christmas list to make them lol hopefully I get them all done in time.  Here are a few that I would like to share.
This first one is a doll my mother use to make for me, its from the dumplin design collection and there are about 10 or so diffrent types of dolls, I am hoping to make my 4 year old at least one more before christmas.  This one took me about a week with the piecing together taking the longest.

This is a little penguin from the lion brand website.  My 11 year old is so into penguins right now

I cheated alittle and hot glued the wings and eyes on,make everything go so much faster.

Thanks for looking  Smiley

8  Toddler Crayon Roll (Image Heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: December 12, 2008 06:09:36 PM
Ok, my 4 year old started pre-school this year, so I thought I would create her very own crayon roll, since she is always losing her crayons. 
I kind of just winged the pattern since I could'nt find one anywhere.  I plan on putting it in her stocking from Santa, because I think Santa crochets in his downtime right?

Pink and purple are her favorite colors

I made little pink flowers for a decreative touch

9  Crochet Baby Doll Top in Crochet: Completed Projects by BeanaboosDesign on: July 04, 2008 08:42:12 AM
I came across this pattern the other day and once I saw it I had to make it.  I did not use the yarn that the pattern called for and I think once I make another one I will use a cotton yarn for more stability but I am very pleased with my first one.
(Please excuse the pic)

This was such an easy pattern, I think I had the yoke done in about 2 hours and I used about 3/4 yarn of fabric and it was done.  Here is a link to the pattern
Any comments are welcome
