1  Rigby Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: September 30, 2012 12:11:03 PM

I love Regular Show....and character hats. So after some head scratching I came up with this idea for a Rigby hat.
I think it came out pretty well, but I'm not as happy with it on a head as I am off. Maybe I need to make my dimensions a tad bit smaller. No matter, my son loves it, and that makes me happy Smiley

3  Summer PJs in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: July 09, 2012 07:05:57 AM
(sorry about grainy pic, my camera needs batteries)

We've had quite a heatwave here recently, and my son only has pajamas with pants. I suggested he wear only his pj shirts, or no pj's at all. But he's a very particular kid, and would not hear it.

   So I dug through the dark and mysterious craft closet and found two old t-shirts that were close in color. I whipped up some shorts from one, and used McCall's 3199 tank top pattern for the second t-shirt, though it may discontinued now.

   Quick and dirty, this project took me just a couple hours in the morning. And now he has his summer pajamas  Smiley

4  A Tattoo my Mom Will Approve of... in Crochet: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: May 13, 2012 07:31:01 AM
So I'm a grown-up.


Kids of my own.

And a need to have my mom's approval.
Which she does, but she doesn't exactly love my multiple tattoos.

So I thought it would be cute to make a tattoo she could approve of.
The classic MOM tattoo....in pillow form  Wink

I found the heart pillow pattern for free on Ravelry. Then I just single crocheted a white banner, and made a quick "MOM" cross stitch pattern on graph paper. I've never done any cross stitch before, so just winged it. It's a tad wonky, but I still love the way it came out.

Happy Mother's Day!
(I'm heading to Mom's house to hand this over)

5  Beemo IS camera! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: May 01, 2012 08:40:55 AM

OK, mine's not really a camera. Just plastic canvas, and crocheted arms and legs.

Like almost everything else I make, this came about after my son begged for his own Beemo. I googled and found some inspiration online. Then I just had to buy some graph paper and map out the pattern.

I made it so I can make different faces and my son can slide them into his "screen", but so far I only have one face.
I just couldn't wait to post this Smiley Also, I left top piece open on 3 sides, like a lid, so my son can store extra faces in there.

Edited to add:
Here is an extremely crude, but hopefully not too confusing chart with instructions for your very own Beemo.

6  Angry Birds: Pig Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: October 09, 2011 10:39:48 AM
My son loves Angry Birds, and has been pestering to make him the pig for months now. Since it's getting to be hat weather around here, I thought I'd kill two birds (pigs?) with one crocheted stone.

I did a simple single crochet round for the hat body.
Two small circles for the eyes, and an oval that i just kind of made up as I went along for the nose.
The ears are in the round in half-double crochet (5, 10, 20, 20, 10, 10).
I then sewed black felt nostrils, pupils(?), and inner ears on,
Whipstitched all the pieces together, add a couple eyebrows...

...and popped it on his head.

His kool-aid-stained smile tells me he appoves Smiley

7  Hat and Scarf (yay! I can post pics now!) in Crochet: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: January 12, 2010 12:52:29 PM
I started making this for my mom's birthday. But I couldn't really get into it.
maybe I was burnt out from all the Christmas crochet I did.
Anyway, it turned into a Happy 2 weeks after your birthday present.

I used a Joann's brand yarn called 'Sensations'. It's acrylic, but nice and soft.
The hat is a simple beanie pattern from the Bernat website, I think.
The scarf is worked in 2 rows single crochet, 2 rows V-stitch pattern.
very simple. I made it up myself Grin

It finally turned out very nice and very cozy.
Which is necessary in Michigan right now.

Thanks for looking

8  Lurker's 2nd post (a recon) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: November 09, 2009 05:53:46 PM
I posted in the stenciling board a couple days ago.
Upset that I couldn't post pics until my 10th post, I decided to get crafting!
so this is #2, please visit links to pictures....

I have a tshirt addiction. I like to buy anything that I deem "quirky" from garage sales, or resale shops. I have piles and piles... I mean I don't think I'll be on Hoarders anytime soon, but it is definitely more than a collection.

I finally got around to reconning one.
it was a men's large Speed Racer (the old school cartoon, not the movie) tee.

I created a pattern from one of my daughters tops,
added a ruffle at the bottom,
and now its a cute dress!

I am super proud because its my first real recon, first ruffle, and first self drafted pattern!
comments and suggestions encouraged Smiley Smiley

9  Rhianna-esque Stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by SoSwiftly on: November 07, 2009 10:56:11 AM
Hi Craftsters,
Long time Lurker, first time Poster!
after perusing the stencil forums for ages, I finally decided to give freezer paper stenciling a try.

I did some practicing with stencils I downloaded,
then decided to attempt to draw one of my own.

Basically, I drew a highly stylized profile of Rhianna from a pic in one of my magazines,
Cut it out,

*thanks hubby, for not telling me how awful my hair looks*

(she has a chin, but it doesn't show up well due to camera angle.)

I am in super love with my simple stenciled shirt!
thank you Craftster, and tutorials, and everybody for looking!

(edited to add....)
