You know, you could probably market this on Etsy. Sell some individually (like the most commonly used hooks - G,H,I,J) and sell some full sets. I think it'd work. I'd buy them!

Simply awesome.

thanks guys, I am worried about the clarity of C, especially at small sizes.. also I think cutesy birds are a bit generic?

Personally, yes. It looks a little to "upscale" generic. lol If that made any sense... Cheesy

I'd go with B.

As cute as A is, it's kinda cartoony. I'm not sure if that's what you want to be going for. D is just too blank.

Good luck!

ROFL Cheesy That's awesome. You should make him one and put it on a pillow or something.  Tongue Great job.
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Wedding Memories (Slightly pic. heavy.) on: June 12, 2010 02:55:13 PM
We were blessed with the sweetest JP ever when we got married. The vows were simple and beautiful, she even read us an Irish Wedding Blessing and another short passage that was just right.
The day of the wedding she presented us a card with the Irish Blessing in it, and we later went back with a Thank You card and requested that she write down the vows and the passage for us.
Well, what I did was type them all up in a pretty font and changed the font to a deep brown and printed them out on little 4x6 sections of computer paper.
I found some pretty frames at the Dollar Tree (Everything there is $1), but they didn't have wall hanger thingys, just the stands, so we bought some at Wal-Mart for less than a buck for all of them, and my hubby hammered them in.
Now we have three pretty picture frames to match our living room decor and that will forever memorialize our special day!
Pardon the slightly bad pictures, my camera is ancient and I have those lovely blindingly white rental walls. lol

^ The blessing.

^ The passage.

^ The vows. (Slightly edited from the original vows. I put in the "I take you to be mine." instead of the specific husband/wife name specific vow exchange.)
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Netbook Protector! on: June 12, 2010 02:42:50 PM
Last fall I got myself a mini-computer (A netbook.) because I have online as well as on campus classes, and a full sized laptop just gets a little bit too bulky (And easily noticeable for people to steal.).
Well, the Netbook is perfect, but in a backpack with college sized textbooks, it's practically getting beaten to death, so I made it a handy little cozy to prevent it from getting beaten up by the textbook bullies that I force it to associate with.
My backpack is black, so I decided to make the cozy black as well, but it was just getting boring, so that's where the ruffle (That you can't see that well, unfortunately.) and heart-shaped button came in! Cheesy

(Pardon my knee and my very smudged computer - wow, I need to clean it once and a while. Tongue)

Here's the quazi-pattern:
Chain a length that is equal to the depth of the Netbook.
Half double crochet in second chain from hook and all the way across.
Do not turn, instead start working stitches on underside of chain, working in rounds instead of rows. (I hope that made sense!) This will create a pocket effect.
Continue working rounds until it is the width of Netbook. Test to make sure - it has to stretch a little to properly fit.
After it is at the desired length, start working back and forth rows (Chain 1 each time you turn.) on half of the round to form a flap. (Again, I hope that made sense!)
For the ruffle: Chain 3 and single crochet in each stitch all the way across.
Sew on a button and enjoy!

Yeah, lining the drawers would be a good idea, so your items don't slide around.
That is a cute little chest of drawers! I love the green. Great job!
I always wonder why people throw away perfectly good furniture.  Tongue

Oh..my...I am absolutely in awe of you!  Shocked This is simply amazing! I want to make a skirt like this! Skirts like these make you feel fun and feminine, don't they? Plus you get to feel like a little girl again, twirling all around! hehe
Once I get a sewing machine of my own, I want to make a skirt like yours. Great job!
