2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A diaper bag in greens and browns on: July 31, 2011 04:42:47 PM
It's that time in my life when EVERYBODY around me is having babies! So I'm perfecting my diaper bag making skills, this is my second one, eventually I would love to sell them but I'll have to get faster at making them  Grin

There's a pacifier/key/toy clip on the inside and outside

Hopefully the pockets are big enough for cloth diapers if that's what she wants to go with.
I put elastic loops on the inside gussets for bottles or sippy cups it should work either way.

I'd love to hear suggestions for additional features if you've got some favorites!

Thanks for looking!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Cloth diapering diaper bag... on: July 03, 2011 09:39:04 PM
I'm making a friend a diaper bag for her first baby, she wants to cloth diaper the munchkin if possible. I've made exactly one diaper bag before and have exactly zero kiddos myself. I would love to know how big I need to make pockets so she can easily put them in the side pockets, I don't like the look of elastic in the pockets, but I do pleat the bottoms of the pockets.
Thanks so much for any help!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Infinity Shirt! on: July 02, 2011 03:44:12 PM
I adore all of the infinity dresses I've seen on here! While I would simply love to be a dress kind of girl (infect I am attempting to work on that) I just don't get the chance to wear them all that often Sad I WILL be making an infinity dress....as soon as I clear out some of my current projects, and probably one for my sister, who is definitely a dress girl!

In the mean time I used a jersey that I got off the clearance table a few years ago, it was only a two way stretch, but it worked out okay.

I serged the hem to keep it from rolling, I love the fact that I could do the whole thing on my serger...I'm still learning to use it

The basis is a two part tube top with the straps sewn between to chest band and the lower part, I based the shape of the lower part off of my favorite t-shirt plus some length.

I'd love to hear what you think, and if anybody has a good idea of how to keep the back from puckering I'd love to hear!

Thanks for looking!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Goldilocks favorite baby bear hat on: June 09, 2011 04:34:28 PM
I tested a pattern for daisies crochet on ravelry, and gave it to my photographer friend for her prop box. The pattern is nice and easy and super cute, and my friend got some very cute pics of the hat on her littlest niece. So enjoy the chubby cheeked baby goodness!

Pattern is available on ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/three-little-bears-earflap-hat
Thanks for looking!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / When Cinderella and Batman had a little girl... on: May 30, 2011 03:13:57 PM
A really good friend of my husband's is having a little girl in September, my husband actually did they're wedding almost two years ago. It was a fairytale wedding...with batman (the groom) and Cinderella (the bride)
While there is a TON of princess stuff out there, it's much harder to find batman/girl things...so I made my very first embellished onsie!

It has a cape!

Gave to them last night when they came over for dinner, they both loved it. May even have become the new going home outfit  Grin

Thanks for looking!
C&C always welcome
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gauntlets for a punkish friend on: May 16, 2011 09:32:13 PM
I'm very into handmade gifts this year, in fact purchased gifts so far have been very minimal and most have even been done on time! Except these  Tongue

Made for my crazy punk/steampunk friend out of my own rather twisted imagination.

I should be able to give them to her this Sunday, hopefully she likes them  Cheesy

Thanks for looking! C & C always welcome
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / A sackboy to hold and cuddle! on: May 16, 2011 09:23:40 PM
First of all his name is Les and he is rather excited to be completed!

See how he dances!

He loves hugs! And stickers lots and lots of stickers!

Les is a great explorer always seeking out new sights....

And making new friends!

His pattern came from http://nerdigurumi.com/2010/03/little-big-planet-sackboy-with-pattern.html she has some ridiculously awesome nerdy crochet patterns!

Well Les and I thank you for looking!
C &C always welcome!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink 'n skulls purse on: May 14, 2011 09:21:14 PM
It all started with a little gingham bow (which didn't even make it on the bag)...
But i thought it would look awesome on a girly skull appliqué with some of my left over skull print fabric!
It mutated a couple of times and eventually sat half done in my craft room as so many projects do. I dug it out today since I had all day to occupy myself and amazingly enough I actually finished it!

Appliqué closeup


Strap detail

Unfortunately it came out a little to rock star for me, it's just not something I'm going to carry. I love how it came out but I will probably be trying to find it a new home Sad

C & C always welcome!
Thanks for looking

By the way if anyone is interested in doing a swap for this shoot me a PM
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Because I can't sit still I made a bolero! on: May 05, 2011 05:04:16 PM
During our twice monthly gaming sessions I've discovered that I NEED something to do with my hands. We've got a pretty large group so it takes a while to get through everybody. This last session I got the husband to stop at the craft store on our way up and I picked up the yarn for this. Got it most of the way done that evening too!

The pattern is from http://misscraftyfingers.wordpress.com/2010/06/15/pattern-for-crochet-version-of-ribbed-lace-bolero/

It worked up very nice, I will definitely be doing this one again, probably in a nicer yarn.

Oh this was done in Caron simply soft eco the color is ocean

Thanks for looking! Comments always welcome
