12  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / the start of a babbette blanket? on: April 27, 2009 10:32:20 PM
I have the start of a babbette blanket like this but in the bride and groom's wedding colors:
well I started it and realized that I'm not going to be able to finish it by the time I need to have it done (as a wedding present for someone) so what can I turn it into that'll still be a good wedding present?
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hello kitteh hat on: March 08, 2009 12:38:07 AM
I crocheted a hello kitty hat! I looove hello kitty! (a little obsessed)
I originally had ears on it but decided it didn't look right. I think the bow is kinda in the wrong place but it looks alright.

I've been on a hat kick lately. every once in awhile I get in one. I just really like making them Cheesy quick easy projects but still really cute and functional!
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / For the love of cupcakes hat <3 on: March 06, 2009 03:38:16 PM
I have some thermal fabric with a cute little cupcake print on it that was going to be part of a jacket that never got started. so I've been using it for different things. one of which is this hat. I went into this wanting a project to keep me busy, one that would take awhile to complete but not too long. so I decided to make a hat and line it with the thermal fabric. so I picked yarn colors that matched the fabric and started. I used a smaller stitch than I usually do to make it warmer and look more professional. I used the basic/standard hat pattern and added ear flaps. and I just traced the hat (minus the earflap) on the fabric and cut it out hand-sewed it together then sewed it to the inside of the crochet hat. then I cut out ear flap pieces and sewed those to the inside of the ear flaps. I cut a whole through the fabric and sewed around it so I could add the yarn dangly bit from the ear flaps. then I added my first ever pom pom to the top of the hat. I usually don't like the pom pom things on hats but I think it really completes the hat. I didn't have enough stitches to do hearts all the way around so I put O X on one part of it (the part before the slip-stitch) and that was supposed to be the back. well the way I usually do hats is by a "do a little bit, try it on, do a little bit more method" which I used to find the placement of the earflaps. well I have a huge mirror on the wall of my living room where I crochet and I usually just stand up look in the mirror how it looks and judge by that. but I was at my bf's parents house and I feel wierd going into the bathroom to look in the mirror every 5 minutes so I winged it. which made the O X on the front not the back. but all in all I'm pretty happy with it! I went to the midnight release of Watchmen last night and waited outside from 7 to 11:30 and it was cold, windy and snowy for a bit. and it kept me nice and warm.




here it is on:

and to show you just how cold it was last night, and just how crazy we all are:
I am the one in the green coat (AKA the only girl in this picture and the only girl in line for this movie till about 10pm)

15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / pretty zune cozy! on: February 24, 2009 12:55:44 PM
I wanted to make a cover for my zune since my stupid work scheduled me a graveyard shift in the middle of a week for no reason other than to put out stupid easter freight  Undecided Roll Eyes
so I brought home one of those plastic bags curtains come in (was just going to be thrown away anyways) and was going to make a screen for it..but everytime I made a hole to stick the crochet hook in it ripped. so I gave up and did it this way instead...
I really love this yarn

open (my button hole is crooked but I don't care lol)

the bottom (where the charger plug goes. that flap buttons shut) I didn't get a shot of the top that turned out but it ties so it stays on better.

the back. the buttons are crooked but it doesn't matter too much to me. I just hope they stay on. I don't have much experience with buttons. I just threaded them onto the yarn and crocheted them in.

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / RAWR = LOVE in dinosaur on: February 24, 2009 12:51:51 PM
so I bought a cute vest at my work and it came with a plain black shirt which needed some embellishment. well as I was cleaning out my craft stuff and organizing I found some old felt pieces that where begging to be something so it turned into this! Cheesy all hand sewn (my sewing machine is called Lucy Fer for a reason) and also used fabric paint (one of the greatest inventions ever next to soybutter (fake peanut butter).
after I get the orange dino almost finished I realized I had sewn him on crooked so he's standing on a hill being bashfull lol

sidenote: I haaatteee when my hair doesn't cooperate! darn wavy hair anyways. so I just threw a hat on.
sometimes I feel like just shaving off all my hair to be rid of the pain in my @$$ but then I realize how silly I'd look and just deal with it.
17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / lolcat and other lol animals on: February 07, 2009 11:13:53 PM
soo the other day my bf and I where at Borders and after I finished reading the lolcat book I found a book titled:
Grandma's Dead; Telling Bad News with Baby Animals and inside where several postcards of cute baby animals and under them where captioned such sayings as: "you're not the father" "it's syphilis" "you're baby's ugly" etc. etc. I thought it was the funniest idea! and now I think it'd be a great swap! we could have it like the post secret swap and each make say 7 or so and send them out to different people.
here's a link to the book:

and here's the inside:

also it could just be a captioned animal swap like the lolcats and whatnot.
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my version of the cable hat! (now in green AND grey) (pic heavy) on: January 26, 2009 09:49:18 AM
so I tried to do a cable hat bc I loove the look of cables but I can't knit. so I tried to follow a pattern for it and the first time it was too small..so I undid it and started again..a little better but still too small. so I went and ate dinner (the bf cooked ribs yuummmm) then started again..but this time I made it up as I went along. it turned out great!

I started the brim too early I think but it still looks alright


I used a neat yarn that's got flecks of different stuff in it. makes for a cool hat Cheesy

I liked it so much I decided to make another one so here's one in grey Cheesy

(ignore the boyfriend being wierd and making fun of me taking a picture of myself)

aaannndddd a cute picture of the family lol Cheesy

20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / cupcake hat on: January 15, 2009 09:34:20 PM
I bought this orange fleece and cupcake flannel shortly after getting my new sewing machine. I decided to make a hat out of some of it. I used a very simple tutorial which I seem to have lost lol. well of course after getting the main part of the hat done Lucy (appropriately short for Lucifer) decided that she no longer wished to work on the hat soo the earflaps, and front part are all stitched by hand. it turned out a little big on me so I will fix that once Lucy decides to cooperate but for now it fits my bf perfectly so he will model the hat for me.
here is the front: (I told him to make a nice face bc all of craftster would see it and he does this  Roll Eyes Tongue )

with the ear flap up:

with the ear flap down:

I suppose I'll have to make the bf one of his own now lol bc he still hasn't taken off the cupcake hat XD he's such an odd duck
