I found it! It's a pin for a flapper hat, and here's the link......
1212  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Saloon Girl Choker on: December 06, 2004 12:34:51 PM
This, to my shame, is a free rosette pattern I got off the net....somewhere....that I have completely forgotten the name of. I had the pattern in my binder, tried it, found it made a perfect rose and subsequently a choker attached to a black crochet chain, but I have no idea where I got it from. But isn't it gorgeous???

And these are necklaces I invented. The pink rose and the red rose are obviously from the mystery pattern, I made the red one into a barrette for even more Western Barfly charmingness. The necklace patterns are on my blog, and I'll try to find the mystery pattern's location so I can give credit where it's due.

Thank you, that is a cool idea! A pacman Christmas tree.....it boggles the mind. I wonder if that set idea would work on ebay? Hey, you never know.

Absolutely you may have the tutorial. Any friend of Ms. PacMan is a friend of mine. They're ridiculously easy.

Ms. Pacman( worked in rounds) : Yellow:
Ch 2, 4 sc in second ch from hook. 2 sc in each sc. Ch 1, turn.
1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around until you get to the last stitch. There should be one stitch left empty from this round- this is where the mouth is- so ch 1, turn, 2sc in same sc, then 1sc, 2 sc around until you get to the last stitch before that empty stitch. Ch 1, turn, 2 sc in same sc, and do this until it's as big as you want it to be. it is very important never to join any of the ends of the rounds, because this makes the mouth open. That blank stitch never gets filled. Make 2 of these.  Sew a black eye on each side.
Sew these together leaving mouth unsewn.

Bow: Pink : Ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 2chs. Ch 2,turn, 1 hdc, 1 hdc decrease. Ch 1, turn, 1 sc decrease. Ch2, turn,2 hdc in sc. ch 2, turn, hdc in each hdc, finish off. Sew to one side of head.

put a key ring on there, they're 64 cents for 8 at walmart, and voila.

Ghosts: Ch 2, 2 sc second ch from hook. Ch1, turn, 2 sc in each sc. Ch2, turn, hdc in each sc. Ch2, turn, 2 hdc in first sc, 1 hdc in eachof next 2 sc, 2 hdc in last sc. Do 3 more *hdc in each sc* rows. Ch 3, turn, dc in next st, slip st in next st. Ch 3, dc in next st, slip st in next st. Ch 3, dc in next st, slip st in last st, finish off. Make 2. Sew together leaving top open.

Sew white eyes on there, and the pupils are blue...I discovered it doesn't look right unless the eyes are looking off to the side. 

Sew snaps to the inside of the top so your change doesn't fall out, or if you want a key ring you can just sew it shut all the way.

Hope that isn't confusing, I honestly sort of freestyled all of them a little differently, but that's the basics.

The fruit are just little black squares sewn together, and I used a strawberry fridgie pattern from crochetpatterncentral.com. The cherries are just freestyle embroidery.

Thanks for all the comfort, people. It was such a disappointing day. I'm so glad somebody likes these cuties! Cry
1215  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How much stock should I bring? on: December 05, 2004 04:48:36 PM
Thanks everyone..I took your advice and made a whole bunch of stuff, and I do think it helped a little. Unfortunately, I think everyone there was Christmas shopping for their parents, it being the end of the semester here, and not enough people have my taste in Pacman either. I didn't sell much, about $35, but the people who did like my stuff were so kind, and I met some other kindred spirit crafters, too. What I learned today: At Christmastime, the money is in candles. The candle lady next to me practically had a line. I ought to try a summertime fair. Still, a good experience!

I woke up this morning thinking "Ms. PacMan change purses!"

The ways of inspiration are mysterious!

1218  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Any tips on my display? on: December 04, 2004 10:36:44 AM
This is my very very first craft fair display, for an event coming up tomorrow! It will be on an eight-foot table, and I have lots more of everything, I just put up one of each so you could see my stuff. What do you think? Will people buy these? Are the prices right? Should I change anything? I'm quite nervous and I trust everyone on this forum.=)

1219  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / How much stock should I bring? on: December 02, 2004 09:39:36 AM
With any luck, I'll be participating in my first-ever craft fair on Sunday. It's at my college in a well-traveled area.
It lasts six hours. I don't know how much stuff to make. I crochet, I make original designs..sea life soap savers, tiny punk stuffed animals, flower jewelry and hair stuff, and things like that...I don't want to have much left over, I'm not sure when I'll be able to be in another one..How much should I bring? Also, how much change? =)
1220  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: I'm allergic to wool, what shall I do? on: November 25, 2004 08:32:48 AM
Thanks so much, everybody! I won't have to wear gloves to work it, it seems to affect more sensitive skin like insides of elbows and so on. Plus, as I unravel it ,it turns out to be really thin and break a lot, so one sleeve is all I have the stamina to recycle. I made a Christmas mouse tree ornament out of it, which I will post a picture of as soon as I get my camera back. I wonder if I dare try raw wool? I think I may, I think I might....thanks for all the tips!
