11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Favorite thing I've ever made! on: December 21, 2009 11:37:12 PM
I made this purse for my sister for Christmas several months ago, and just last week lined it and added the embellishments.  I decided I should take some pictures before I wrapped it up, and decided I should share those here while I was at it!

I used some kind of generic brown yarn that I found in my stash, and Wool-Ease (I think..) for the flowers Smiley

The lining was made from the outer pouch thing that my new sheets came in!  The colors were perfect and it was almost the right shape and size already, so it made lining a little bit easier.

I totally made up the pattern as I went.  I made a rectangle base and crocheted up the sides in all sc.  I love the handles and its fat little bottom!

Also, pardon the mess in my kitchen...I wrecked my car on Friday and I haven't felt like cleaning!

C&C welcome! Smiley
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: The random RESIN question thread! on: November 27, 2009 06:56:32 PM
I've searched this thread but couldn't find an answer, so I'm sorry if it's redundant..

Is there any rule (or hope) for casting resin at a lower temperature?  I live in the mountains of NC and it's quite cold..my mom has COPD (breathing disease) so I can't pour it in my house because of the smell.  I kept the resin and hardener inside to keep them warm, and then took them out to my garage to mix.  I tried adding a little extra hardener, and it's been about an hour with no change Sad 

Any help would be great!

AHH! I feel your pain! I took a ceramics class a few semesters ago and my teacher INSISTED we make a set of four matching cups. I gave away about 20, and I still have boxes of them stashed around! I wound up proudly displaying the four he finally accepted as a matched set on the mantle above my fireplace for about six months, lol. Hope yours were more fun/less pressure to make!

Thanks for all your kind words!  Smiley

how big is it?

I'd say it's about 3.5ftx5.5ft. Big and snuggly:)

It makes me hope I get sick while at school soon so I can just lay in bed and make something.  Lol.

Ohhh no you don't, lol..this is the sickest I've ever been! I just can't get over it. I'm actually off to the doctor again tomorrow, yuck.

Isn't it amazing how pets love crafters work?! They are always all about it. The very best supporters. Grin

Yep! My mom says they can feel the love you put into it Smiley I'll definitely try the oil of oregano..I've been trying to take two packets of Emergen-C a day but it just burns my throat more so I've mostly been sticking to tablets of C  and D.

Oooh double stranded. I love pieves that are double stranded and it does look very cozy. :3

I love double stranded stuff too! So thick and squishy and fast.  You should check out this book, Afghans on the Double..it's all double stranded!  This is the fourth pattern from it I've used..they're all really nice patterns:)

that looks super comfy!

plus, I love the colours and the pattern may be simple, but it's elegant and pretty as well Smiley

great job!

Thanks!  I think the pattern would be nice with a bushier yarn..worsted weight isn't really my thing (but I don't have the $ for something nice quite yet lol)

My first real post here!  I've had strep throat three times in a month, and laying on the couch gets pretty boring after a while, so, I stashdove and came up with this.  The blue yarn is some kind of mill ends stuff from AC Moore that I got for $1 a bag, with 3 big rolls in a bag..and the green is Red Heart, the great big roll kind.  I've soaked it in Downywater a few times and now it's all nice and soft.  The pattern is from the book Afghans on the Double--I literally looked for the shortest pattern in the book so I could mindlessly get it done in my feverish state  Wink  I expected it to be a tragic mess, but it's actually really cozy and big and even kinda pretty.

There's some trickery here..it's actually even, even though the picture makes it look, uh, the opposite of even.

This shows the colors a little better..

And my dog totally approves..he's been trying to cover up with it ever since it was just a chain Roll Eyes

Let me know what you think!

I don't know squat about beading, so, that kind of looks like magic to me  Shocked Love the overlapping, and the asymmetry is awesome!
