1  Doily Barbie Vest in Crochet: Completed Projects by kobechina on: January 26, 2013 06:12:34 PM
I made this doily and my daughter wanted to play with it. She asked me to tie it on her barbie like a cape and it occurred to me that it would work perfect as a circle vest. I just used a piece of yarn to tie it, but I think it would look great with some pretty ribbon. Also, a lining would make it a pretty dress and you could even add sleeves and make it into a jacket.

The pattern for the doily I used I found here...

I started this blanket more than a year ago and I plan on using up all of my scraps finishing it. It is rather large  Grin. I wanted it to be big enough to be like a bedspread for a queen sized bed. So, in the picture, the part that is going up and down is really the width of it and the width in the picture is only how far up I have made it so far. (I always make things waaayyy too big. I should post a picture of my 18 yo son trying on a dress I tried to make for my 4yo, lol). Anyways, I layed it on a futon and I put my cat on it to show scale. This is a great project that I always return to when I need to take a break from whatever I am currently working on. It is just double crochets so I don't have to think, and can watch a movie while working on it.

Here is a picture of my scrap collection to use in the blanket. I have 4 Ikea containers full of balled up yarn at my disposal.

I made 12 squares last night and they ended up being 2.75 inches. This would make the blanket 68.75" x 79.75". Kind of big, but I think it would fit nicely on a double size bed with a little hanging down the sides...I don't know. She is 10, so I want it to be bigger than in the picture in the link.

I did not tell her what I am making, but I wanted to find out what color I should make the background. I asked her what color she thought goes good with red, black and brown. She chose green, like x-mas. So I am making the background green.

Here is a progress pic.

4  Ruffle purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by kobechina on: September 26, 2011 10:14:07 PM
I crocheted this purse from a pattern I found on Ravelry by SusanD1408 Crochet Addict. I modified it a little to make it smaller and have ruffles on both sides. It was a fun pattern and really easy to do. I am very happy with how it turned out.

5  Go pictures for husband's birthday in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kobechina on: July 01, 2011 12:16:43 AM
My husband loves Go so I made him some pictures for his birthday. I googled some famous moves and games to use as templates. Then I cut out many black and white circles out of card stock and glued them to scrapbook paper that I drew lines on. I bought some material to use as the background and I used stamps to make the labels. I added some decoration to the labels with stickers and little fake crystals. I really liked how they turned out and my husband loved them.  Cheesy

Sorry about the pics, I am not the best photographer  Sad

6  Zombie Jazz Players in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kobechina on: May 29, 2011 10:11:31 PM
I used the zombie pattern from Creepy Cute Crochet and made these Jazz players for my son's Jazz Band auction. The school colors are black and red. For the instruments, I tacked scrapbook stickers to felt and then sewed the felt to the zombies. They were a lot of fun to make.  Smiley

7  Thomas train table in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kobechina on: October 16, 2010 05:23:59 PM

My daughter (2 y.o.) loves Thomas the Tank Engine and my son (17 y.o.) happened to love them as well when he was her age so I have a lot of wooden track and pieces. My daughter was always asking to go the bookstore because they have those train tables in the children's area, but I quickly got tired of that so I decided to make her a table (much too expensive to buy  Tongue)

There are six drawers on each side for a total of twelve which is more than enough to hold all of the pieces. I bought the drawers at the dollar store and the wood I already had from leftover projects. The most expensive part of the table was the spray paint. All together it cost about $50. I tried to make a lake and a river to give the top some interest, but I think it's a little funny. That's ok because when there is a track over it, it makes it look kind of cool. Anyways, here it is  Smiley...

8  Re: PROPOSED: Sunburst pullover from July '10 Crochet! magazine in Crochetalongs by kobechina on: August 18, 2010 10:12:20 PM
My round is flat, but I am using a larger hook than the pattern says because I tend to crochet tight so I always have to use a hook several sizes larger to get the correct gauge. I think that you should be able to make it flat by blocking it when you are finished. I don't know. I have never blocked before. Maybe someone with more experience than me could give you some better ideas.

Here are a couple of photos of one of my rounds...(I'm not the best picture taker Sad)

9  CLOSED: Sunburst pullover from July '10 Crochet! magazine in Crochetalongs by kobechina on: July 07, 2010 07:59:59 PM
I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it. I would love making this with others and would love seeing other versions of it. I looked at their website and found out that this is not from the current issue (I just bought mine a few days ago from the local grocery store). So I am not sure how many people have this pattern or would be willing to get it. But if you think you would like to make it, please consider joining me!

EDIT: Now that ansley has joined me, I will declare this crochetalong active! (Two people count, right?  Wink)

EDIT: EDIT: Please see my last post as to why I closed the crochetalong.
