1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Sample Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pies on: May 05, 2012 10:37:43 AM
Your meat pie is awesome!! I know this topic has been inactive for a few years, but I need to make a similar Sweeney Todd-style crocheted meat pie and I am pretty useless without some sort of pattern/schematics to follow. I've been looking for pie patterns on Ravelry, but none of them seem like they would work for this (too small, wrong sort of crust, etc).

Any way you could type out the basics of how you made this? It definitely doesn't need to be a real pattern, just some tips would be fine. I would appreciate it so much.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: The Crafty Wedding Craftalong! on: March 25, 2008 02:27:49 PM
The most we've done on the wedding lately has been filling the website with info. If you want to take a look, you can find it at www.katieandbrian.info

It looks really nice!!  Smiley  We have a wedding web site, too, but we didn't exactly make it ourselves, we just filled it in.  We had fun writing our story, though!  It's here if you'd like to see: greerandheidenberg.weddings.com

I can't wait for the bridal showers.  Actually, for me, it'll probably just be one shower.  When do those usually start?  Probably closer to the wedding, I guess?
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: The Crafty Wedding Craftalong! on: March 25, 2008 01:28:18 PM
Here's my list!  Smiley

Definite DIY projects:
- invitations
- "calligraphy" for invitation envelopes
- programs
- bathroom baskets
- guest book pen
- memorial of some sort for my father, who passed away in 2006
- playlist for DJ

Maybe DIY, maybe not:
- some kind of decorations for ceremony chairs?
- bridesmaid gifts and/or jewelry
- my jewelry
- jeweled hair pins for myself and/or bridesmaids

We're on a reeeeally tight budget, and sticking to it rather well so far (hooray!).  We're doing a fall theme.  We got print-your-own invitations with a really pretty leaf & acorn theme, so we're going to use those, but we're going to embellish them a little with ribbon.  We also have to make the RSVP postcards and directions/hotel list enclosures.  We'll be getting ivory card stock from an office supply store for that, and decorating with leaf paper punches and possibly some classy stickers.  My FH can help with some of it, since he's really creative; hoping to get friends to help with some things, too.

I put the word calligraphy in quotes, since my mom and I (and maybe some friends) are going to try to do that, and we don't know how yet!  LOL.  I'm sure it will come out pretty.

The playlist is already being worked on.  We're big folk-rock fans (that's how we met!).

We've got until November...I hope we can get as much done ourselves as we want to.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Ribbon-wrapped guest book pen--how do I do it? on: March 25, 2008 01:08:33 PM
Hi!  We have our guest book already, but we need a pen to go with it.  I am not impressed by the ones I've seen for sale.  Anyone know how I can make one of those cool ribbon-wrapped pens?  I'd love to do it, but I have no idea how to get the ribbon to stick to the pen. 

Our wedding has a fall theme, so any other fall-related pen ideas are welcome as well.  Smiley

Thanks so much!!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / DIY wedding invitations - advice please? on: March 18, 2008 12:53:20 PM
My fiance and I can't afford to spend much on our wedding invitations (and that's putting it mildly).  We really want to make our own, and we are probably going to print them ourselves, but we'd like to do something with more of a personal touch than a store-bought DIY invitation kit would have.

I found an article online recently with an idea that sounded really appealing: using a maple leaf paper punch (we're getting married in November) to cut out leaf shapes on the invitation cardstock, and then putting colored paper (probably red, in our case) underneath.  I stupidly did not bookmark the site, and now I can't find the article again!  Any ideas on how I can do this, or something similar?  We want something pretty simple--no bows, no frilly stuff, just a nice Autumn theme.

If we go with the paper punch idea, how should we glue the 2 pieces of paper together?  Should I use a glue stick, or something else?  I don't want these to fall apart easily.  And what's the best kind of paper punch to use?

Is there anything cool we can do with the envelopes?

Any recommendations as to a good little calligraphy set with instructions, for addressing envelopes?  (My mom and I are going to try to do these...heheh...)

I have never done ANY kind of paper crafting before, so any tips would be much appreciated!


6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Homemade Barbie clothes on: February 25, 2008 02:44:51 PM
Those clothes are fabulous!!

I've had the same problem.  I love the Model Muse dolls (Top Model and Best Models series in particular), but I can't even find patterns to buy for them.  What's worse is that I've never done any real sewing, so I don't know how to make my own.   Embarrassed 

Would you ever consider sharing patterns for making clothes like those?  I'd gladly pay for them if you wanted me to.

I like it! Smiley I'm new at crochet, too, and want to make a case for my camera, but I can't figure out how to do it.  Any tips/suggestions?

I really like it.  How'd you do it? 
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Camera cozy : first cozy ever on: March 21, 2007 11:19:13 AM
Hey, are there any actual patterns for camera cozies like yours around?  (Or even just general directions?)  I want to make one, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.

How did you make the camera cosy?  I want to make something like that, but I can't find a pattern, and I don't know how I would do it freehand.

Help?  Please?   Huh

Thanks!  Smiley
