Nice work on that--did you just sketch it out on graph paper?

Not really Undecided. I didn't mean for the ring itself to be sturdy, just wanted it to be strong enough to hold the diamond upright. Now, the diamond was not rock hard, but after it was folded and its sides glued on, I had no problems with it. I wouldn't have expected more from a single card stock sheet that cost about one dollar and was large enough to yield 70 of these babies. Yup, the cost of making 70 rings was less than 2 bucks (including the glue).

$2!!??!  That's amazing!! looks like I should try something like that sometime in the future ^^;

That looks really classy and intricate--were they really sturdy?
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's the biggest amigurumi you've made? on: April 21, 2011 02:16:50 PM
So far, the largest amigurumi I've made is the Usagi rabbit you see in my profile pic--it was 25" tall when standing... As for sizing, I just eye-balled it for how big it was becoming...The body was larger than the initial head, so I'm not really one to tell you what a good method would be yet...  Undecided

I'm awful! I just found this. It turned out wonderfully, and I love the way you did the bail on it. I'm glad you liked the project!
Thanks--umm ^^; what's a bail??

this is amazing, i love it ^_^ now i will have to make one for myself
The ones I have use an elastic rubber gasket (very small) that hold the pieces and die in place or are just pretty springs kinda things. You did and awesome job. I love dice jewelry.
Oh!  Pretty!  (Now where is my pretty wire and the d10's I don't use?)

Yes, I have scads of d10's - White Wolf represent!  Cheesy
I would very much like to steal that necklace.  Chic and geeky. 
Thank you all ^_^
Sorry for my delay on returning thanks ^^; I've been working on my crochet...I should make a few more of these before I lose the other dice I have Tongue
I had also done a few with decorative stones--I think the hardest parts were getting the things to stay in place as I maneuvered the wire around it, and figuring out how to end it ^_^

And good luck to all of you if/when you try it out ^_^

Super awesome! I love illusion crochet but can only ever find patterns/tutorials for illusion knitting.

this post was what I used to demonstrate how it's done
(p.s. take note of the link in the post as well--it goes to one of a music note)

the pattern I made though, I just did as though it were knitted, and just kept in mind that the blank rows are to be used to "correct/fill in" the rows especially where free loops were.

I'ts gorgeous!
I do like this, the blues are really nice colours and the power symbol is wicked. I've never heard of illusion before but now i'd like some info and to try it out.
Thank you all ^_^

So...it's been awhile--I hadn't posted.... Cry Cry I'm sorry
 I've done a few things recently, but I'll just post the most recent thing...

Presenting my Power Symbol Murse---Man Purse...*ahem*

A friend of a friend of mine saw my illusion crochet bag as I was putting the initial finishing touches...and wanted a strap XD
so I made the strap adjustable by putting buttons on the inside and the strap has holes about 4 stitches spaced (if that makes sense)

What do you guys think? This was my first illusion crochet pattern.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ami Pattern Makers, when did you begin designing your own? on: March 12, 2011 02:33:56 PM
I started crocheting around  Summer 2008 (ish?). My grandma started me off with embroidery thread...then I learned how to do granny squares in about 2 weeks...then learned about the joys of amigurumi. I think I did my first original design about 4 or 5 months later--was only half intentional...

But anyway, I  still feel like quite a novice, but to get a general idea on how certain maneuvers look, I may look at other patterns, or base part construction by eyeballing other works... and it never hurts to keep up skills by working other patterns before starting your own: it helps get you used to how things may be sized or shaped when factoring yarn and hook choice.

As for writing it out--I'm still kinda stuck, but I try figuring out which is easiest for me to remember/read when I write my patterns out. The first pattern I wrote of my own was Usagi (I think).

  I try to keep my patterns on a thumb drive as a notebook document for quick fixing (depending on the pattern), I find it great for copy-pasting parts that are to be identical (like the first rounds of things)

I'm not sure if this advice is helpful enough but good luck!!
