I got some new DROPS Cotton Light yarn the other day and made this cute little purse with it.  This is one of the DROPS patterns from Garnstudio (www.garnstudio.com).

Thanks for looking. Smiley

2  Embroidered Cards - my own designs in Needlework: Completed Projects by patcreates on: September 26, 2009 09:13:02 AM
I made some more embroidered cards, but these ones are using pattern designs that I drew myself.  I really didn't have much confidence in my drawing abilities, but when I knew exactly what I wanted to draw, it seemed to flow.  Now, they are no masterpieces, but I am very happy with the finished product. Smiley

As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated. Smiley

3  More Paper Embroidery Cards in Needlework: Completed Projects by patcreates on: September 08, 2009 07:49:03 PM
I created a couple more cards.  Actually, I'm quite obsessed right now and I am seeing potential patterns all around me. LOL  Even on my paper towels.  These 2 patterns are from rubber stamps.

The first pattern is from a rubber stamp by Pink Cat Studio (www.pinkcatstudio.com)

The next one is a pattern from a rubber stamp by DRS Designs (www.drsdesigns.com)

Feedback is welcome and appreciated.  Thanks for looking!

4  Paper Embroidery - cards in Needlework: Completed Projects by patcreates on: September 07, 2009 02:36:35 PM
I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post, but thought I would try here first.  I recently started doing some paper embroidery and having lots of fun with it.  For patterns, I am using an old book of iron on transfers that I had in my stash.  I would love some feedback on how I am doing with this.  Thanks!!

Thanks for looking!

5  Dischcloths and Bath Mitt in Crochet: Completed Projects by patcreates on: January 18, 2009 08:32:34 AM
Since I am still a very newbie crocheter (only 3 weeks), I have been making very beginner projects.  I have a book called "Crochet Essentials" which is put out by Leisure Arts and Lion Brand yarn.  I made the Bath Mitt, and 3 of the dishcloth patterns (single, half double and double crochet).  On the bath mitt I used Peaches and Cream yarn (Gumdrop) and on the dishcloths I used Sugar 'n Cream Stripes (Lime and Natural) and Lion Cotton (Sagebrush).  I did make some mistakes on the first 2 dishcloths but by the time I got to the 3rd one, I was mistake free! LOL

Feedback is welcome and appreciated. Smiley

6  My second project...easier than the first. in Crochet: Completed Projects by patcreates on: January 06, 2009 05:41:22 PM
Now this is the project that I probably should have tried for my first one....LOL...since it is smaller and easier.  I got this pattern from the book Crochet Essentials by Leisure Arts/Lion Brand Yarn.   It is supposed to be a toddler size hat, but it fit my son's head.  I made the length a bit longer, but the circumference came out exactly as noted in the pattern.  So I will definitely say its a child size hat since I lengthened it.  It is done in half double crochet as a flat piece and then the side and top are seamed.  The top two corners are then tacked together.  I am not sure I like how the top of the hat comes out, but it was an easy way to quickly make a hat.  I used Vanna's Choice Baby yarn (Goldfish) and a size J crochet hook.

Feedback is welcome and appreciated for this very newbie crocheter!

7  My first finished crochet project in Crochet: Completed Projects by patcreates on: January 06, 2009 08:10:30 AM
I am a super beginner as I only (FINALLY) learned to crochet about a week and a half ago.  This is my first project which is a very small blanket (about 17" x 25") which I figure could either be used as a doll blanket or one to throw over a newborn in a carseat. I used Bernat Berella yarn (Seascape Ombre, Denim Ombre) and a size H hook.  I single crocheted most of it, but because I ran out of the yarn I was using, I half double crocheted the border around in another color.  The border is a little puckered, so I think I need to learn better how to go around corners.  Anyway, I am looking for feedback.  Is it horrible...... or not too bad for a newbie?

My stash is not that big so I just put my yarn in plastic bags, and store on a small bookcase in a corner of my bedroom.  I previously had it in a bin, but I couldn't see what I had. 

Here is a pic...

Has anyone tried making a neck-warmer thing?  I'm imagining something that looks (and works up) like a wide hat brim, but is missing the hat, then wearing it around the neck.

Would this work?  Would it be warm?  Would it look ok?  Has anyone tried it? (If so, do you have pictures?)

I have done this using the purple adult hat loom and I made a matching hat to go with it. 

There is also a pattern in the "Knitting Wheel Fashions" book.  But I basically knit for about 10-11 inches, and then brought the first row up like a brim and then did a crochet cast off (chain 2 between each stitch).

This is my first attempt at a mitten on the Knifty Knitter:


I used the blue round loom, and a thumb loom.  It's sooooo gigantic.  Oh well!

It looks warm and cozy though!  Great job!

I just finished this baby set for my neighbor who is due in about a month.  I made 2 sizes on the hat in case the baby has a big head like my younger son did when he was born! LOL  The hats were just a basic hat pattern with a garter stitch brim and the booties were made using a modified version of Bevs Loomed Newborn Booties pattern.

I used Bernat Softee Chunky yarn (Natural) and the blue, red and flower KK's.
