1  Re: 50 Projects 2010 in Craftalongs by lalalapoopoo on: June 07, 2010 12:40:16 AM
So here is my list.... I guess I'll start with the ones I've finished first.

1. Legwarmers --> I decided to make them out of white cotton for laundering reasons. I know they will stretch out easier but I tend to like the slouchy look. Plus I'm planning on adding a ribbon at the top to help them stay up.

2. Knit hat --> For me this winter! It's the Thorpe pattern which I found on Ravelry. I used Manos del Uruguay Wool Classica, such yummy yarn.

3. Knit hat --> For my bestest friend. It is also the Thorpe pattern and made from JoAnn's Sensations Licorice and Paton's Classic Merino.

2. Cowl --> Once again for me! Made from some handspun yarn I acquired somewhere. It is so snuggly, I made it really long so I could wrap it around my neck multiple times!

3. Hooded piggy towel --> I made this for my 19 year old best friend, haha. Really simple and turned out CUTE!
4. Hooded cow towel --> Ended up making one for her brother too. The cow one is def my favorite!
5. Basketweave scarf --> I found instructions here on Craftster..... technically this one isn't completed because I need to weave in the ends.
6. Stationary/art kit --> I put a bunch of stationary I found on clearance along with pencils, pens, erasers, tape, stickers, etc in a mini table top roll top desk thing for my cousin. It was a hit! Sadly I dont have pictures but I found the same kind of box in different dimensions so I'm making another one for her sister.
7. Dress --> I made an Easter dress for my best friend. I still need to get pictures.
8. Nightgown --> Used a men's button up to make a nightgown for her Easter basket. Still need to get pictures of this as well.
9. Rice therapy bag --> After making one for my best friend (it seems like I'm her sweatshop, haha) and seeing how well it worked I knew I had to make one for myself. I saw the tute on Sew Mama Sew and used that as a guide. Figured out dimensions and added about 5 pound of rice, easy peasy.

10. Valentine's Day present --> Made for C (best friend)..... included an embroidery and a heart mobile.... still need pictures.
11. Summer '09 scrapbook --> Self explanatory, finished over my spring break.
12. Swiffer cover --> Made for my aunt... used directions found online. Search "crochet reversible swiffer cover" and you'll find it.
13. Laptop sleeve --> Needed a more padded case for my computer and didnt want to pay $30, so I made my own. Made it on New Year's Day so it counts, haha.

14. Face scrubbies --> I need to take better care of my skin so I knit some scrubbies to wash my face with. Yay for gentle exfoliation! Plus I used bits of cotton yarn so it was frugal! Made 21 in all!
15. 5 crocheted beaded necklaces --> once again found instructions on Craftster and just went with it. Super easy and addictive project.
16. Reconed night shirt --> While at Goodwill's Memorial Day half off sale, I found a night shirt made out of Munki Munki fabric. I bought it and turned the long sleeve thing into.....

17. Mittens
18. Knit pig for C (bday present)
19. Knitting bag for C (bday)
20. Slippers

49. Cowl --> Using the "Chickadee Cowl" pattern from Ravelry and Happy Feet yarn aka teeny tiny sock yarn (big mistake)... also for me.
50. Jewelry organizer

I forgot about projects I had in progress so that is why they are scattered about haha. I still need to get pictures of quite a few.... hopefully by this weekend. I will probably have a lot more project for this year as well, but 50 is my goal.
