1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Doily Barbie Vest 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...

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ruffle purse 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.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Go pictures for husband's birthday 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

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Zombie Jazz Players 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

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Thomas train table 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...

6  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / CLOSED: Sunburst pullover from July '10 Crochet! magazine 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.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Birthday present for mom (blanket - square motifs) on: April 23, 2010 02:56:07 PM
I made the Soft and Comfy Throw from the Nov/Dec 2008 issue of Crochet Today. I made the motifs out of leftover yarn or yarn I didn't know what else to do with (I've collected yarn for years, but only started consistently crocheting recently). My mom has non-matching placemats on her table so I thought she would be able to appreciate the "eclecticness" of this throw. I didn't like it at first, but it starts to grow on you after a while. Anyway...here it is.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / What to make for a 16 yo boy? on: March 27, 2010 02:22:59 PM

It's really easy to come up with ideas for my two girls. My son thought for sure that I could never think of anything to make that he would like. I ended up making a pattern myself and I proved him wrong. Yay! Stan is 9" tall and hopefully I can make the other characters by xmas.  Wink

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Daughters' names in crochet on: March 08, 2010 08:59:04 AM
I crocheted these letters using the free patterns from this website: http://www.wovenspun.com/free_patterns_knit.htm. For me, they ended up being almost 13 inches tall. My daughters loved them. Hadyn is 8 and Sophie is 2, so they work well for various ages. They were fun to make and my 16 year old son was even a little jealous.  Wink

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My new dining room light on: March 05, 2010 08:55:10 AM
I made this by creating a trellis type structure to hold the lights. The lights are just the icicle christmas lights. And I used bolts to fasten it to the ceiling.  It turned out different than I imagined it would, but I like it. Some of the lights blink and at night the reflections resemble firelight. What else is cool is that the light has a dimmer switch so when turned down a little, the lights look like stars. Sorry if the pictures came out too dark. And don't mind the sad plant on the right, my cat played with it and I haven't got a replacement for it yet.  Smiley
