1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / first wallet :] on: June 11, 2010 01:59:54 AM

I like how this turned out, my top stitching was a little wonky in one of the corners, but all in all I like it.  This came from one of the stacks of fat quarters I got on clearance at michaels. Next time I'll make a bigger wallet...I would have added a zippered coin pouch...but no zipper. I also need to press it haha.


2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / super quick throw pillow on: June 09, 2010 08:56:22 PM
Well, found some fat quarters on clearance at michaels, so I took the opportunity...I mean really? 10 fat quarters for 3 bucks? deal.  I made a tufted throw pillow, our living room is mostly white beige khaki and brown, so I thought a punch of blue would do justice to my leather chair.

I know it's not much but I love the print, and the way it warps in the center.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2nd go at a purse. 3 pictures on: June 09, 2010 05:58:09 PM
I really like how this one turned out.
I found some fat quarters at michaels for 1.49 a 5 pack.
This purse used 2 fat quarters & some interfacing.
I'm going to add something to close it up. 
when I was adding the handles my needle bent so I had to hand stitch them.
I'm not a great sewer by any means but I have about 7 more FQs to play with.

I didn't have enough of one pattern of fabric for a handle, so I did a patchwork kind of handle for it.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bombomb Amigurumi! on: May 28, 2010 07:51:31 PM
I really like how this turned out, I modified the Danger Craft's monster chunk pattern & made a bombomb, I CO 42 stitches just to make him a little bigger, he stands about 4 inches in height.  I'm new to knitting so I wasn't sure how to knit oval eyes, so I crochet that. I made i-cord for his wind up key & whip stitched his feet to the body. I also used a large button to anchor his wick into his body.  C&C is always appreciated!

I'm new to knitting, but i'm getting the hang of it. C&C welcome!

oh,  and can you please tell me the best way to seam something together on the side of the rows? for this I just whip stitched them together & mattress stitched the top
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / the ishi knit/inga mesh hobo. on: May 16, 2010 07:42:28 PM

It started out as becoming a crocheted granny version of the Ishi knit garter bag (22 squares, rounded big) The inspiration came from the Inga granny bag a lot of you have been making, as you might know the Inga calls for 16 squares, well I ran out of yarn & got pretty much the opposite of my goal, but I love it!!!!
It's an odd shape but a pretty good size
& yes I know i need to weave in the ends.
C&C is always nice!!

so should I just use a garter stitch & keep it simple?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sylas' 1 year plushie [WIP] on: May 02, 2010 07:16:22 PM
I just started knitting & I bought my first pair of circular knitting needles because I figured they do the same work as a set of DPNS...Am I wrong?
They just are very...intimidating to me.  I'm really a crocheter but I love the look of knit amis.

I don't like flooding boards  Grin

The magic loop method is great...I'm trying the Middle size monster from rupester.blogspot.com  I'm only on row 12 but it's turning out great, I left a huge hole in the top on purpose and there aren't any accidental holes in the work.

I made the mistake of getting 16" bamboo circulars but it's getting the job done.  In my point of view, If I make things more difficult for myself now, then later on, when I choose the more convenient way to do things, I'll be a lot better at it when I try again.

I decided every year on my son's birthday I will knit him a monster of some sort, which each year the monster getting more complex.  I just need to add some embroidery, arms & legs & the 1year monster is done :]  
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Jaxsens Slippers on: April 22, 2010 01:15:56 PM
I named these slippers after my nephew who is due to make his appearance in June.
I like them. Simple, soft & snug the 3 important s's in baby booties.
C&C are welcome :]
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / this is driving me nuts. on: April 19, 2010 09:18:12 AM
I've been making booties for awhile, but for some reason I cannot map this type of upper:

no, I'm not trying to copy that style, I just want to try something different other than plain mary-janes.

so to make the upper, well just the jist of it, is it:
sc, sk 1, hdc, sk 1, dc, sk 1, 8 tr 1 st, sk 1, dc, sk 1, hdc, sk1, sc

or is it make a chain across then work the centre cluster of trebles?
