1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a Pattern of a Human Form on: August 19, 2011 07:58:38 PM
I am interested in finding a pattern of a human.  Not life size, smaller - I want to create them and then have them sitting on a small crochet couch/chair/bed, etc. like soft sculptures.  It does not have to be anatomically correct but I am looking for nose, ears and hand patterns.  I would like the pattern to include breasts.   The feet do not have to show the individual toes.  If anyone knows of anything like this I would be more than willing to buy the pattern.  Thanks for your help.  Jeri

Here are 2 new owls I just made. 

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Macrame Owl Pendant on: June 21, 2011 10:27:32 AM
I used to make so many of these owl necklaces when macrame was so popular back in the day!  I have wanted to make an owl for so long - I finally found a pattern and did it.  The first one I made took about 2 hours because I didn't understand some of the directions (knots).  The first one I made was out of cotton yarn and my husband says it reminds him of something voodoo.  Whatever!  So next I made this owl with metallic crochet thread.  I got the idea of using a wire on the top from some other pictures I saw (lets just say that I borrowed the idea).  I thought that was such a cute idea.  So what do you think of my first of a zillion owls I will be making? 

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Italian Coin Pendant on: December 08, 2010 07:43:45 PM
I made this with some Italian coins I had saved from when I lived in Italy.  Europe uses Euros now for money, so these coins are no longer in circulation.  I love the way this necklace turned out.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fiber Ball and Bead Cap Jewelry - making lemons out of lemonade! on: November 23, 2010 11:33:57 AM
I ordered some bead caps which I thought I would be able to flatten and use them for something else.  Surpirse!  They split when I pounded on them!  Okay, plan B, whatever that is.  I orderd 100 of these and even though I ruined a couple of them, I still have something like 97.  Gotta do something with them.  And here is what I came up with.  I crocheted a ball and attached it to a chain and earring hooks.  I really like the finished product.  They are super lightweight because I didn't crochet around a bead, so the weight is extremely light.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ponytail Hats - For Your Ponytail! on: November 22, 2010 03:36:58 PM
I was at a craft event and there was someone that had a hat that you could pull your ponytail out of. It was knit and I thought - I can do that - but in crochet.  I walk for exercise when I am not too lazy and I always put my hair in a ponytail.  As it gets colder, I'll need something for my ears, so I thought this was a cute idea.  I tried to wear one today to an appointment, but it's still too hot for hats in Las Vegas.  It gets cold at night, but the days are still pretty nice.  

Here is the pattern I found.

I modified it a little and came out with this.  And of course, I cannot make just one.


They have a stretchy band in the circle so you don't even have to put your hair up in a ponytail, just gather it up and pull it through.  It's pretty cool.

Sorry about them being so big - the small ones were so small, and I couldn't get them to line up!

Here is my pattern: 

1st Round:  Take a rubber band (you could use anything stretchy, this is what I had), double it over and double crochet 18 sc around band, join

Note:  beginning 3 sc = 1 double crochet

2nd Round:  chain 3, dc in same space as join, (2 dc in next st)* repeat, join = 36

3rd Round:  chain 3, dc in same space as join (1 dc in next st, 2 dc next st)* repeat, join =54

4th - 18 or 20th Round:  1 dc each dc, join. Continue until it is long enough for your liking.

Last Round:  sc in each dc, fasten off

Poof on top:  Attach yarn in dc space on top.  (Chain 10, sl in same space) 3 times, sl into next dc space, (chain 10, sl in same space) 3 times, repeat.

For ease of putting hat on, turn inside out, gather your hair like you're putting it in a ponytail, stick your fingers through the hole, grab your hair and pull it through.  Remember, it doesn't have to look great on your head, you're covering you're head with hat.  Now pull the hat down over head, turn up as much "brim" as you would like. 

When you take your hat off, you don't have ponytail stretchy head.
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Say Hello to my Little Friend on: October 31, 2010 09:18:20 AM
I love amigurumi but I especially like items that can be crocheted in one piece without having to sew the legs and arms on.  So here it is.  I think he's so cute.
8  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Happy Halloween Sock Monkeys on: September 18, 2010 10:43:32 AM
I bought these socks for $1 at Target - YES, $1.00.  Found a generic sock monkey pattern on line, hauled out the sewing machine (probably the worst part - I am so lazy).  Added a little bit of this and a little bit of that and viola - sweet little halloween sock monkeys.  I just love them! 

Which one is your favorite?
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Tiny Panda on: August 21, 2010 02:40:00 PM
I am racking my brain to come up with something that kids would like and is not really expensive for a couple of bazaars that are coming up in the near future.  I made this little panda and put a chain on it so that a child could wear it around their necks, or the chain could be shortened and made into something to put on a key ring or purse, backpack or belt loop.  I could also put a ribbon there instead (a short one) or just leave it with nothing it then it's sort of like a pocket pal.   The panda is only about 2" high. Which one do you think kids would be more drawn to - of course, I could offer than in multiple ways, but I thought offering it in one way would be easier on me.  What do you think?

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a crochet pattern of the Incredible Hulk on: August 17, 2010 10:04:07 AM
I saw a knit pattern of the Incredible Hulk and it was super cool.  Does anyone know of a pattern in crochet of the incredible hulk.  Thanks.
