21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rasta Tam Dreaddie Hats w/bills attatched! on: January 12, 2005 08:50:54 AM
These hats were all made by moi, and I knew how to make a tam, but needed help on the bill part, so I went to this website that I somehow lost track of =0( 
  It was a site much like this one, but it was specifically for design type stuff.  Like mostly making your own patterns, and girls helping eachother achieve the desired look with their projects.  So I asked how to make a bill, and a bill pattern I received! here's that:
http://www.livejournal.com/users/stitchn/13716.html **edit-> this link is out of date!  but I have put up the bill pattern for all to see!  just scroll down this page!**
And here's the pix, there's a few, so hold on!

Let me know what you think!  I'm just surprised I can fit all my hair inside!  It's down to my BUTT, now! Shocked
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knitted & Felted Noro mini tote+ cell cozy on: January 12, 2005 08:29:44 AM
Hi there, another F.O. minus the "U."  Cause I'm done-yay!
  Here's a little noro set knitted and felted up with #88 yarn.  I was looking for #95, but settled on this, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!  My first felting project, and my first experience with noro yarn.  It's scrumptious if I do say so...

   BTW, could you tell that the cell cozy was my felting swatch?  I just closed the rectangle, and single crocheted around the edge in purple (the next color going) and voil!
  I love how these turned out. Did I say that already?  I can hear more noro calling me from a distance....Saaarraaahhhh........you neeeeeeed meeeeee.......

24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Toddler sized bucket hat on: January 12, 2005 12:06:56 AM
Hi everyone, I just got our new digi camera in the mail yesterday!  WOOHOO!  A x-mas gift from my BF's Mom.  THANKS ROSY! We love you!
  SOoo, I've been going nuts taking pix of all my finished stuff.  This hat is a gift for our neighbors who just had a baby. I think her first birthday was about 2 weeks ago, so now that the pix are done, I'll give it to her.  I also stitched up a little baby bunting from some strawberry shortcake fleece, and a solid yellow fleece. I'll post that in the sewing section soon. It's got ears on the hood- cute!
  This hat was crocheted in single crochet while watching a movie. Very quick.  It was done spiral style- no joining rounds with Sirdar Snowflake Chunky Magic yarn. Hope you like!  The yarn is a B@# to knit, so I ended up crocheting this instead.  No pattern. Just lots of crochet experience.
Here goes!

I love the soft color stripes. I think it looks pretty, and I'm just praying it fits! I've never knit or crocheted for a baby before!  ;0)
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Gloomy Bear Coin Purse (w/ mini instructions!) =0) on: January 11, 2005 08:16:29 PM

Hi all!
  I made this little coin purse from a gloomy bear pattern in the back of an issue of "gothic and lolita bible" magazine.  They carry it at the local japanese bookstore.  I got a bunch of vinyl in a few different colors, so I'll be making more of these. Maybe even a blowling bag type pattern, too!
  It's clipped to my new Chi Chai Monchan Sanrio purse, and I think they'll be best friends!  Except whenever gloomy gets HUNGRY....! =0)
  Upon close examination of the chi chai bag, I noticed that his face is appliqud with a double strand of thread.  So I threaded my pfaff according to the directions for twin-needle sewing, and just ran both threads through the same Single needle!  This requires some tension adjustments, but in the end, it looks better and is sturdier than a single thread.  Just used Gterman like I do for EVERYTHING! 
  When sewing with vinyl, one comes onto a problem. Pinning.  You can't pin vinyl cause the holes will show.  And some glues/tapes will corrode the fabric over time, so make sure you use something that's safe to leave on there.  I found a glue stick that washes out in water in the notions dept. of Jo-Ann's.  Since I won't be washing it out (it's VINYL!) I made sure the package said it was safe for vinyl as well as a bunch of other fabrics.  It doesn't work TOO well, but it keeps those little pieces on good enough to carefully feed them through the machine.
  Some people have trouble sewing vinyl cause it's kind of "sticky."  I didn't run into this too bad, but I've heard to use a teflon foot for your machine if you have this problem.  But they can be pricey, so you can improvise with some tissue or other thin paper under the foot of your machine.
  And with pattens or bags of this nature, where you're not using a Seam Allowance per se, you can take almost any shape or picture you want, enlarge to your heart's desire, and stitch up your favorite sanrio hello-kitty character.  make an army of little bags or coin purses to keep eachother company.  You can even just eyeball the shapes, and appliqu away!  I just put a zipper on the back, to access my change or other small items.
  I hope this info is helpful for those out there who love gloomy as much as I do, or love all those hello kitty items, but can't afford to buy everything you see.  I'm even contemplating making a purse to match my chi chai monchan bag, and I can put whatever I want onto the front!  Gloomy bear, here I come! =0)

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Put 'em Up Gloves on: January 11, 2005 05:45:20 PM
Hay all,
  these are just some gloves I made with Jo-Ann Sensations 100% wool yarn. The yarn is called Licorice, and the color is GREEN!  I used a pattern I found for some bulky fingerless gloves, but I had to change it to suit my needles and yarn.  Whipped these up on size 11 dpns I made from wood dowels at the grocery store!  Hope you like!
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Groovenmama's new *competition* ;0) on: January 06, 2005 09:56:15 PM
Hay everybody!  I'm kina new here, but I think I've found my new home.  Cause I'm pretty much the craftiest gal I know.  I love EVERYTHING crafty.  Knitting, sewing, crocheting, beading, etc.  So, for a first post of my finished projects, I'll show you guys a dress I made but never sold!!   >=0(
  I think it's totally the bomb, but that's probably cause I spent a MONTH on this one. ;0)
Let me know what you think!  P.S. Although I sound cocky, I'm really just overcompensating for my insecurities.  I had a rough childhood, OK?  Sheesh- do you have to grill me so hard?
[Oh, and by the way, the Liger is "pretty much my favorite animal."  ;0)
