1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Three hats & a headband from this week! on: January 27, 2011 10:26:41 PM
More crochet done this week.

I designed a cute Bunny Hat for the kiddos....a Ribbed Newsboy for the gals and a Scalloped Headband for those cold winter days.

I also hopped on over to Drops at Garn Studios and worked up this cute pom pom hat from their selection of patterns....I made flowers instead of pom poms though for the dangles.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 3 new hats I designed!! on: January 20, 2011 02:48:03 PM
I love letting yarn speak to me....and sometimes, these conversations turn into suprising projects for me!

I loved this taupe yarn and knew it needed to be a cloche. Being one for textures and details when I design, I made the base with a raised textured pattern and added a braided band....and of course, a little flower for cuteness!

The Chunky slouch hat came from two half used skeins of yarn...why not merge the colors together?!

The Hoodie Hat was born after inspiration from an afghan I saw...I shortened the shells and shaped it into a cute hoodie complete with ribbed edging & curly-q double ties.

Thanks for looking.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Shrug & Headband on: January 20, 2011 02:43:06 PM
I purchased the shrug pattern online and made this up for my daughter!

I made her a knit-look headband to match! (she loves wide headbands)

Thanks for looking!!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Headbands.... on: January 20, 2011 02:38:52 PM
I've been busy crocheting...I go in spurts.

In this post, 3 headbands.

The first two are textured headbands I designed...the flower was a pattern purchased off another site.

The blue ski band was also designed by me...made from Wool Ease Thick & Quick.

The last is a crochet covered headband with knit-look bow.

Thanks for looking!!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted, Embroidered wristlet & Lunch Money Pouches on: December 04, 2010 10:03:14 PM
I made these up today for me and my kiddos.
ALL of them were done entirely in the embroidery hoop...yup, zipper too!

The bird on denim is for me...the other two are lunch money pouches for my kiddos complete with clip to attach to their backpack or belt loop.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cowls, Scarves & Hats Oh My!! on: November 08, 2010 06:57:08 AM
Been away from the boards for too long!! (over a year, I think)...sadly, this is how long I have also been away from Crochet!!

So, a very cold Fall arrives and I pick up my hook again. Sooo many patterns to try...a couple written by me...here's from my past week:

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Skullies key fob wristlet on: February 25, 2010 08:00:54 AM
Dug up my webbing after a year of not finding it...and made this little key fob wristlet last night using up some left over skullies ribbon.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bandana Skulls Fabric Headband on: February 25, 2010 07:59:03 AM
I hope this in the right place.....couldn't find a topic for sewn hair accessories, so I figured Beauty fit Smiley

Decided to sew up some headbands today.

Here is my first one.

2.5" wide at it's widest...tapers to 1.5"

Elastic in back is covered.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bali & Swarovski bracelet.... on: February 25, 2010 07:54:46 AM
Created this last night....haven't played with my beads in a while. I actually bought the bali tubes 3 yrs ago and never got around to using them until now!

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Unique Pincushion Swap? on: February 13, 2010 07:00:01 PM
I love collecting unique, handcrafted pincushions and thought this would be a great idea for a swap.

I would set a limit to 20 swappers, US only....since this is my first time organizing.

I would create 4 groups of 5.

Each person would create 4 (or 5 if they wanted one of theirs for themselves) pincushions and mail out one to each member of their group.

Let me know what you think!
