1021  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: halloween wedding on: January 27, 2009 09:12:13 PM
I got married on Halloween! We went with the traditional dress for me - more of an cream than white, and black tuxes on the guys.  But the girls all wore like, black cocktail dresses and I put on the invitations (on black card stock that I totally had to make myself because black invitations? either expensive or non-existant) "costumes requested." It turned out to be so much fun!! People still talk about it, and it was almost 10 years ago.  We had a pumpkin carving rehearsal dinner and used those pumpkins for the centerpeices.  Had orange and white carnations as the flowers.  OH! a fog machine to walk us down the aisle.  And instead of the regular wedding march we played tubular bells -- you know the theme from The Omen.  If you want, I could probably find some pictures of stuff. 

Sorry I can't help on the dress - I'm a pretty terrible seamstress myself.  You could try to buy a wedding dress you liked and dye it.  Though if it failed, that'd be kind of expensive.  Or just go completely non-traditonal and get a bridesmaid dress and fancy it up.

good luck and congrats!!
1022  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Challenge 8 Entry - Coffee Cozies! on: January 25, 2009 11:20:11 PM
I used a very tiny amount of the sugar and cream yarn from walmart for the pink/purple/white one.  And a tiny amount of I think the Red Heart Sport in yellow that I got on sale at Michale's for $2.99 for the whole skein.  The "expensive" part of the project was the buttons.  Each was on a card for 2/$2.42 so I think the entire project might have cost me about $5. 

I made 36 of these at Christmas time for all the people in my office.  I came up with the "pattern" on my own after looking at a bunch of these online.  Basically, I chained 11 or 12 or 13 or whatever I felt like and then crocheted single crochet rows until it was a size that would fit around a coffee cup (like the paper ones from Starbucks) and then sewed it together and added the buttons! Very easy and very fun.

I made a scarf for my mom from the Happy Hooker book - the one skein scarf.  I have to use my camera phone and the lighting kind of sucks because I've lost all the cables to my real camera - including the charger.  I used Red Heart Sport in Red, even though it looks rather orange in the picture.

anyway, here is the scarf:

And I also made the Boy's Beanie hat from the same book for my younger brother.  Its the Red Heart Navy and the grey is something I found that is not the same weight at all, but I bet he won't notice.

And a scarf to match - but I kind of thought that the scarf I made my mom was a little too girly for the younger brother, so I found one that was just stripes of single crochet and the fringe is just chain stitch. 

The final thing I've completed so far is a baby blanket for some friends of mine that just had a baby.  I used the Red Heart multi and then did the border in a sage green.  Its the Little V stitch blanket from the lions brand site.  I actually really like the little picots and how the whole thing turned out. 


Thanks for looking!!
