311  Some cards I made... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Belladune on: January 24, 2011 07:49:55 AM
I would generally say I'm no good at paper crafts.  So, in order to boost my paper creativity, I took a card making class.  these were the results:

We were all given the same kits, with an example card.  A few of mine only slightly varied off the originals, and a couple were dead on copies, but I just couldn't bring myself to get overly creative.  I found the finality of placing that stamp, or aiming the punch or awl to be very stressful! you can't just take off a stamp the same way you can rip out stitches!  It's almost to exact an art,  but I guess I'm the only one who see's the imperfection.  Anywho.  I am going to order some stamps and some card stock anyway.  I can only get better with practice right?

Belladune--what a cute idea for using scraps!  I just got a boatload of flannel from Sevsonlygirl that I could use up the littlest scrap for...only I will use my snakes undet my drafty windows!

thanks!  I can't take credit for the idea,  I saw them all over the internet.  The method I originally used turned out terribly... I should take a pic of that thing too...   he was larger scraps...  But I remember making one like the original one when I was 10, and I remember it working better....  hang on, I'll show him off here...

My children refused to leave it alone while I was taking pics, now that I'm not wanting it, they aren't playing with it... go figure......

Oh and what you can't see in the pics is that it's lumpy and bumpy and weird...  Maybe just more patients would fix those problems.

313  quick little mitts & a toque and scarf *now with pattern for mitts!* in Crochet: Completed Projects by Belladune on: January 19, 2011 06:59:27 AM
I whipped these up for a swap partner, making up the pattern as I went along.  I wrote it all down, so if there is interest, I'll type it up Smiley  they don't take up much any yarn at all

modeled by my 3 yr old:


I also made these a while back, out of the same yarn, and I still have a bit left.  It was just one ball of each:)
sorry it's sideways, I swear I turned it....

 I used an H hook, and bernat yarn, worsted weight.

Little mitties

-Ch4, make into ring
-Sc8 into center of ring made. Slip stitch into first sc
-2sc into first st., sc next 3,  2sc into next st, sc next3, sl into beginning of round
-2sc into first stitch, sc next 4,  2 sc in next st, sc next 4.  Sl into beginning of round
-2sc into to next 2 st (for a total of 4 new stitches) sc next 5, 2sc into next 2 st, sc next 5 sl into beginning of round
 -2sc into first 2 st, sc next 7 2 sc into next 2, sc next 7 st sl into beginning of round.
-sc each st around fr 7 rounds (I did not slip stitch while doing this part)
-Join colorb, sc around 2 rounds
-starting the thumb hole here:
-sc, chain 8, join back to body of mitt skipping 2 st, sc around to beginning of round,
-sc around including the chain
-scdec, sc next 4, sc dec, sc around
-scdec, sc next 2, sc dec, sc around
-sc dec, sc around

Pick up 10 st on the opening with color B
Sc around
Sc dec, sc around (8st)
Change to color a
Sc around
Sc dec, sc around (6st)
Sc around,
Change to color B
Sc dec, sc, scdec, sc, scdec, tie off.

*Please let me know if there are issues with the pattern! I only made one pair, so there might be goofs!  probably not, but you never know!*

A few things I whipped up for a couple swap partners,  all from my stash! woo!

Scrappy snake: (from all those bits that had no purpose)

Toy car roll:  (from a leg of my "fat pants" Cheesy, an old t-shirt, and a larger piece of fabric I had)

These were super fun and quick!

Belladune, I love the colours of the yarn!

I was truly shocked at just how gorgeous the yarn became!

I picked up the leg warmer I started knitting nearly 2 years ago Smiley  maybe I'll actually finish it and it's match before the summer Wink 

what kind of legwarmers are you knitting?  All the patterns I've knitted are super boring, I'd like to find a better one.

oh gosh, I just cast on  ( I think) 55 stitches, and knit them up on dpn's.  I started with the ply in ribbing, then switched to knit alternating the singles when I get bored with that color.

Here's a pic, it might be more explanatory then my words:
single, ply, single

terrible photo booth pic of it: (excuse my kid. he insisted on being in the pic Smiley )

As promised a while back, My crochet entry!  I made a headband (and a ring and a an anklette but i didn't take pics of those, cause they were wonky.)

and it's thread for pics of the back and sides Smiley   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369161.msg4339133#msg4339133

320  Tunisian and lace headband in Crochet: Completed Projects by Belladune on: January 06, 2011 07:21:28 AM
 I had fun doing this, and I've now got an awesome headband!
I used my own homespun (z twist) single laceweight (with it's slubs here and there Smiley )
The flowers were my own design, but I used techniques I learned while learning to make lace snowflakes.
The band that goes around the top and sides is Tunisian pearl stitch.  I love the way when done in a single row it gives bars with spaces between.

The back was done in the basic Tunisian crochet stitch.

I made an anklette as well, but it's twisted and I'm out of time to make another :/

Hope you like it!  and don't forget to Vote!
