11  Crochet Easter Chick. in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: April 18, 2014 05:55:44 AM
I made this for my niece for Easter.  Cheep Cheep!

I used the lovely free pattern from here (although google translate failed me for the legs and cockscomb, I had to make them up myself!)


It only took one night to make, while watching TV, so it was a nice quick project too!

Happy Easter

12  Soot Sprite Pom Pom Valentine... in Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: February 08, 2014 06:42:07 AM
I'm not sure where this should go...maybe here is the best place?!  Huh

I made this pom pom Studio Ghibli soot sprite for valentines day for my boy.  It's a homemade pompom (I have one of those clover pompom makers, it's excellent and worryingly addictive!), with a pipe cleaner as arms and some felt bits stuck on.

There's a tutorial on my blog if you'd like to see step by step photos.

13  Granny Triangle Bunting, Attic 24 Pattern. in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: February 02, 2014 03:04:08 AM
I used this lovely easy pattern from attic 24 and bits and bobs of yarn from my stash (I am working on making my stash a little smaller this year!) to make some crochet bunting to brighten up my front door, it makes me smile every time I come in now Smiley

14  Vegan oat, flax seed and coconut flapjacks in Vegetarian / Vegan by secondhandsusie on: January 29, 2014 05:16:01 PM

I eat these for breakfast when I get to work, they're really filling and have seeds in for extra nutrients.

2 desertspoons vegan margarine
2 desertspoons golden syrup
2 desertspoons white sugar
2 desertspoons desiccated coconut
3 desertspoons golden flax seeds
1 desertspoon poppy seeds

Melt margarine, syrup and sugar together in the microwave.

Add enough oats to soak up the mixture but still remain wet enough to stick together.

Mix in the coconut and seeds.

Line a baking tray and fill with the mixture.  Press down.

Sprinkle sugar on top if you want a crispy finish (I used soft brown sugar).

Bake in the oven until firm, about 15-20 minutes, cool, cut into as many pieces as desired, then store in an airtight container.

15  Re: Looking For Pattern? Ask here! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by secondhandsusie on: January 11, 2014 03:33:05 PM
I would LOVE to make a scarf like this one, in fact it's my motivation to try to learn to knit again (I'm usually a crocheter) Only problem is I can't find a similar pattern anywhere! Any ideas?  Thank you!

It's from this blog (I did try asking the blog owner but have not had a reply!) http://odacier.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/dress-cardigan-codependent-study.html

16  Baby Elf Hat... in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: December 29, 2013 05:26:11 AM
I made this for my 5 month old niece for Christmas, she looked super cute in it!

I did follow a pattern, it's a free one I found online here.

But I made it using DK and a 4mm hook, crocheted in a spiral rather than in rows, and used htr (uk) instead of dc (usa) - so it's a loose interpretation!  I wound the end of the hat into a spiral and sewed it together instead of using a pompom.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I went with self striping yarn in blues, red and white, which is a bit winter-y, I didn't want it to be soo Christmassy that she would only be able to wear it for one day, if that makes sense.

17  LOTs of baby crochet - hats, cardi and bunny! in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: August 04, 2013 03:56:02 AM
My niece was born yesterday! I made these for her...

The panda hat is from the Beanie Hat pattern from Nikki Trenches book 'Cute and Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes', with added panda features.  For the booties I used this pattern for inspiration http://sensitivesnapdragon.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/boy-clog-slippers-pattern.html but kind of did my own thing!

I made the viking hat from the same pattern, but put an extra round in at the top, to make the top of the hat more pointy instead of flat (so it looked more like a helmet!) then added horns to the side.  I can confirm the baby looked hilarious in this!

The cardigan is also a pattern from the same book, I think called Pocket Trim Cardigan, but I missed off the pocket, and altered the arms, and added flowers!  I've never made any clothing before, so I'm quite pleased with this, even though the button band is a bit funny!

I also made a bunny!

Phew!  I wish I hadn't procrastinated for 9 months, I made all of these in a week!

18  Herbert the Rabbit... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: April 27, 2013 09:31:31 AM
I made Herbert for my friends nephew.  I didn't want to give him to my friend.  My friend doesn't want to give him to her nephew.  I am going to have to make more Herberts!

I made him up as I went along, then added a rainbow tank top, as you do!

19  Granny Stripey Shawl... in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: January 01, 2013 06:39:34 AM
I made this for a Christmas swap, my partner likes capes, so I thought she'd probably appreciate a shawl too and I felt she was an auntmn-ish colour person from her photos, so I came up with this...

It's a basic granny shawl pattern in all sorts of colours from my stash, I used a 6mm hook and DK yarn, so it's not too heavy and it worked up quicker...she liked it..phew!

p.s NOT a good idea to take part in a swap while you're moving house! This made me soo stressed!  I posted it 4 days before Christmas, I'm lucky it got there in time!

20  granny square bag... in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: July 05, 2012 03:07:56 AM
I used up lots of my vintage yarns to make this, it's just standard granny squares in all different colours, 12 on each side, then lined with some flannel and a vintage fabric pocket...
