22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sega Genesis Controller bag on: October 23, 2010 07:31:08 PM
So...I saw this messenger bag made by SpinningNickel (the SNES  mini messenger baghttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360611.0;all) ... and thought it was epic---so I wanted to try one in a smaller scale and made one in homage to my first system--the 16-bit Sega Genesis. The lining is bright orange, and it's both machine- and hand-sewn... The strap was epic long, so i had sewn it closer in at the apex of it.


I think SpinningNickel's is a lot better made (especially at how even the controller sides are)

I just put the flap against my actual controller, and the flap just a little bit larger...I'm guessing maybe by 20%

That is the nature of crocheting in the round. The stitches slant to the right. Take a close look at any piece crocheted in the round and you will see that the stitches are not directly above the ones below. Actually, this happens in flat crochet too, but since you turn it over and go back the other way at the end of the row, it cancels itself out.

You have to work with it, not against it.

You can draw out some right-slanting graph paper and chart your designs on that to get a truer idea of how your design will come out.

I was wondering about how to fix that in my crocheting in rounds...is it possible to get images to even up when crocheting rounds in spiral? I didn't have too many problems when I did the ss, ch 1 @ the beginning of a round when not doing spiral.

neat idea! i dont envy all them ends to tie in though! how did you do the hearts??

I second that question---how'd you do the hearts, and what kinda yarn did you use...and how big is it? Grin

The beard was pretty basic/simple. I just made a chain that went from one side of his face to the other and then made a smaller chain and joined that chain to make a small circle and then sewed both onto the face. It was a last minute addition after looking at the complete doll and thinking her was quite Snake enough. Tongue

Cool--I had made mine in one piece--took me a little while to figure out how big to make it  XD

Ha! That's Awesome!!  I made a Snake Kirby this summer (It's posted)
I have a question for you, though--did you make the beard with only set of stitches/crocheting, or 2 (and attaching them together)?

That's really cool! I thought it was an onion at first when I saw the thumbnail, to be honest. XD
I sometimes do WIP pics on my fb as well...

Also the first time I attempted to use more than one color where I needed to use bobbins. Not as hard as I was expecting. I actually had 3 small bobbins of the blue going, so that the inside didn't look like a complete mess and didn't waste yarn doubling it back and crocheting over it. I only had 3 little tails to weave in at the end.


P.S.  It looks great!
