1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Crochet Coasters & Spider Web on: October 26, 2010 11:56:57 AM
I'm hosting my first Halloween party and I wanted to make some coasters for everyone's drinks.  Plus I had a little table that I wanted to cover with a web.  I found a pattern for the spider web that worked out really well (http://www.crochetdoilies.com/crochet_halloween_web.html).  I used Vanna White's glimmer/glitter yarn.  For the candy corn coasters I made my own pattern after looking at a few designs online.  I used more Vanna yarn (I have a stock pile of it right now from future projects to-be-done).  C & C's welcome...  Happy Halloween!

For the candy corn coasters, my basic pattern (and I do not write patterns, so this might make sense only to me.  I can write it out better if people really want to know) was:
Chain 2
Stitch 3 st into 1st chain, turn
Single stitch in each stitch, turn
Stitch 2 sts into 1st st, 1 st into 2nd st, 2sts into 3rd st, chain 1, turn
Single stitch in every stitch, chain 1, turn
and from there I just increased every other row by 2 stitches (1 stitch added to each end)
I chained colors after every 6 rows.

Have fun this Halloween!
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / What's Shakin' Bacon? on: October 16, 2009 04:41:29 PM

What's Shakin' Bacon?

I'm going to be an Auntie!  And as one of my first gifts to my new niece (she's due to arrive Nov. 19th) I made her a stuffed Squitty!  He's the squid/kitty from the movie Coraline  Cheesy

It was a whole lot easier than I thought it'd be.  I had to make him in pink yarn to fit the parents' vision, and I was nervous about putting a button on a toy so I crocheted that instead (obviously--you can see that from the picture)

I just love all of the other Coraline crafts on here, so I had to share my own  Cheesy  Thanks for lookin'!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Card Box Help (looking for fun and funky ideas) on: July 08, 2009 07:29:40 AM
I'm a bridesmaid in a September wedding, and I've been asked to make the card box for the reception.

I need help!

I haven't been to too many weddings, and I've never paid attention to the card box.  On top of that, the bride and groom are trying to be as original and nontraditional as possible, so just a box wrapped in white paper or fabric will not work  Undecided

Their wedding colors are dark red, rust, gold, silver, and dark brown.  The bride is wearing a dark red and gold dress.  There is a wine theme with the center pieces.  And she's a really good environmentalist.

Any ideas? Huh
