1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rolled Fabric Rosette Shoe Clips on: January 09, 2012 10:37:56 PM
I've been really in to making hair accessories, but I snagged some great clips so I whipped these puppies up! I used a shimmery polyester fabric and the clips are nickel plated. I was a little iffy about them but they're very sturdy.

I made more in other colors, but I haven't photographed them.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Colorful Handmade Crayons with Tutorial on: August 16, 2011 10:25:45 PM
I've been making these for an eternity now, but I've always made them to give to people. I was watching a friend's children the other night, so I thought I'd do it with them. They were pretty amped.

I like to use crayola because they're just the best.

1. First you wanna peel the wrapper off your crayons. That was the least favorite part with the little ones. The paper can be pretty stuck to the crayon, but with the three of us we got it done in no time.

2. I break one crayon up into 3 or 4 small pieces, so they fit in the cups better. I also think it's a good idea to color coordinate them in 4 separate containers, so they can get a good idea which colors go best with each other.

3. These ones were made with mini cupcake tins. Line each one with liners.

4. Put about four or five pieces of crayon in each cup. Whichever colors you choose. You can fill them pretty high. I like 'em thin just for aesthetics.

5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 to 10 minutes. Then let them cool.

6. Peel and draw!

Putting them in the frigidaire speeds up the drying process tremendously. Like, 5 minutes and they're ready to go! Also, you don't NEED the liners, it's just a pain cleaning the pain when you go without. I think they look cute with the liners. The littlest one said 'can I eat one now?' Like little candies.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chunky Crochet Newborn Hats on: June 08, 2011 03:20:08 PM
These adorable little hats were made while I was sitting at the coffee shop under the blasting sun this weekend. They're hand crochet'd with one of my original patterns. They were made with homespun yarn. That's one of my favorite yarns. The green and white ones were made with an acrylic wool blend. Accented with vintage plastic buttons and flowers. They fit 0-3 months and the one with the flower is 3-6 months. These are the best to make when you don't have quite enough yarn for an adult size hat.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Elastics for snoods ? on: June 01, 2011 11:53:32 AM
I've been making snoods, not the bulky tam slouch hat kind, but 1920s-1950 style ones. I wanna start adding elastics in them to be super secure. I buy all my supplies on the internet. What would I call the type of elastic I would need ??
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Newborn Beanies with Brims and Flowers on: May 18, 2011 01:02:31 PM
Hats, Hats, hats. I crochet'd the top two with chunky yarn and accented them with little flowers. I didn't use a pattern for the flowers and leaves, but you can find a million similar ones on ravelry. The bottom are worsted weight soft acrylic yarn. The ones with the brim are my favorite. I think they look so cute. They're made for 0 - 6 month old little ones. I love making baby hats because it gives me something to do with the balls of yarn that are a bit too small for adult size hats.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet'd Lace Cellphone Cozies on: May 18, 2011 12:55:58 PM
I'v been crocheting for quite some time now but I just never got the hang out thread until recently. I've been making cases for gadgets and I wanted to make some fancy one so that made me actually pick up the lace. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't sooo bad. These are what I came up with. I'm not sure the the size of the thread. All of them are made with a solid shell stitch and used a smaller hook than I should've so it be super tight and solid. Accented with vintage buttons.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Ipod - Cellphone Cozy with Lady Parts on: May 04, 2011 01:02:08 PM
I've been making these cozies with little somethings on them and I'm trying to think of fun stuff. I've made them with rotary phones, music notes and things like that. I was looking to my boyfriend for some ideas and, of course, he said a vagina. I totally went for it. So, I turned the safe search off of Google and searched for them. I found it a little difficult to make it right. This is what I came up with.

You could also just say it's a flower, depending on who you're around.

I made a bunch more of these cozies. I found this great material, so I thought I'd embroider it. I think it looks really neat on the cases. I wanna make a bunch with all kinds of old phones.
They were made with an acrylic, wool blend.

I had originally made a cozy for a Mytouch and I enjoyed making it so I made a million. I make them with wool or acrylic with a sc or shell stitch.
Here's a few!
The last one is for an 6th generation Ipod nano. It's soo little.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ribbed Crochet Beanies on: April 15, 2011 03:25:32 PM
I've been kind of bored and in a rut with making things lately, so I've started making felt appliques to attach. I tried all kinds of fabric glues and they just don't work. So, I sewed 'em instead. I like the way the stitches look so I think I'll stick to that!
The first one is with the appliques. The second I mad with some saweet yarn I found. I made some Ipod/cellphone cozies with what I had left of it and I attached some vintage buttons to it.
