1  Ugly 80's sweater to mittens, scarf, and slouchy hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by joesherryw on: November 30, 2007 02:06:00 PM
I entered a contest at http://nannybird.blogspot.com/ She had a contest to reuse for her 100th post. Very cool stuff there anyway this was my entry

I was so pleased I actually managed to make a slouchy hat. I've added a bow to the front since then since my little princess is all about girly things. She's really happy. It was so easy. There's a picture of it before on my blog, I couldn't get that picture to upload here for some reason. I hope you all like it, I think I may make some more sets for the holidays.

3  Look at me I crocheted!!!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by joesherryw on: January 10, 2007 12:26:14 PM
I have been struggling with crochet since I was really young. I gave up and learned to knit. I really wanted to make some stuffies with crochet but couldn't figure it out, so I found a pattern on this website http://www.hooked-on-crochet.com/. I figure what could it hurt I had some yarn leftover that would be perfect. Other than posting a silly question here after no sleep and I'm pretty sure fudging it a bit I made

Please excuse the crappy pics, it looks a lot better in person. I know it's not perfect but I CROCHETED!
So now I'm hooked (pun totally intenended" so I had to make a scarf from The Happy Hooker
Please excuse the baby feet. I tried to crochet a hat to go with it, and it wasn't working out for me so now I'm knitting one. All in all I'm thrilled and am so happy I can do it. It's still not easy but it seems to be clicking much faster than knitting did when I first learned. Plus this is great for stash busting.
 Does anyone have any favorite beginner patterns they want to share I'm so psyched I can do this now, I want to do more!!

Ruby was very well received, after her hug they went on a stroll in the new baby carriage. Here's the introduction,

Alright I am excited I finished, and not so happy it didn't turn out the way I intended. I ran out of time, but my daughter will be thrilled regardless. I made Ruby from Max and Ruby the cartoon, my daughter adores her. It's my first stuffed animal, so considering that, I'm proud. Alright enough over tired babbling. Introducing Ruby

6  I used a sewing pattern and made the cutest pj pants EVER in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by joesherryw on: September 22, 2006 05:42:57 PM
Ok, I understand nothing about patterns, they confuse me to NO END. I know it's silly but they do, my daughter needs pj's for winter and for $25 dollars at Walmart I decided to pull out a pattern I bought before I realized I understood not a thing of sewing patterns. It's McCall's M4708 Sassy Girl , and it's marked easy. I bought it for the ruffly pants, so I made the ruffly pants. Here is the one pic.

I am sorry for the crappy pic but my daughter is dancing around in them and this is the only one that kind of shows them. I am so proud though, I learned a ton of new sewing terms. I need to alter them a little next time because my daughter is such a skinny minnie, when I measured her it was prior growth spurt so it worked now they are a little big in the waist and legs, so they keep sliding down. Now I know, and can use the pattern so it's all good! Thanks for looking.

7  Adorable Hat, and a gauge horror story (pic heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by joesherryw on: September 11, 2006 04:32:56 PM
Alright, I have been trying to stash bust because as I've posted here before I have an addiction to clearance yarn. So I have basically bought stuff that I either a) don't have enough for that "really cool new project" or b) is suitable for little more than hats and scarves. I am tryin to get throught the bulk of it so I can move on to bigger and better things. So I have a ton of half skeins of lion brand homespun from when I first learned to knit. I decide hey that would be perfect for my three year olds new winter gear. I find an adorable pattern in a magazine and go to town getting it done. I am watching Firefly for the first time and paying no attention just knitting. First I complete the hat,

Ok not too bad a little big no problem. Now while still watching Firefly the mitten,

That's my hand. That's supposed to fit a three year old. Yah ok. So I knit that much without noticing, I sat there debating whether or not I needed mittens, realized it was ridiculous and frogged. So I learned my lesson check your gauge, do not knit watching DVDs that never end without checking, and don't curse too much at your own stupidity at 2am because you will wake up the little people that live wth you. Hope you like the hat and appreciate the mitten as much as I did.

8  Re: The Sha Sha Dream Bag ~sew cute~ Now w/ Tutorial! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by joesherryw on: September 11, 2006 12:21:43 PM
I made two about two weeks ago, thanks for posting such a clear tutorial, my sewing machine and I are still on the getting to know you level. I'm pretty sure that we always will be. The pink one is for my three year old so I didn't use interfacing, I also snipped that thread in the pic I just noticed,it's been used exclusively for toy carrying. The blue one is for my eight year old, I used batting and made an attempt at quilting the outside. The lining is a little wonky because I didn't cut it small enough, she loves it anyway. I was going to throw on some yo yo flowers too. Basically like craftyandnappy's, I think we are on the same page, just your sewing skills are far better Alright the pictures,
