1  Vintage Crochet for Your Home - Trophy Afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by lady leeann on: October 12, 2013 08:38:49 AM

After 3 years (on and off of course), 152 rows and over 45,100 stitches; my husband's blanket is finally done!  Cheesy

I used the "Trophy Afghan" pattern from Vintage Crochet for Your Home and Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Aran, Bay Print and Frosty Green.  For size I doubled the width and for the length I followed the pattern through once and then added the following after the last rows to increase the length:

4 rows B, 8 rows C, 10 rows B, 8 rows C, 4 rows B, 8 rows A.

The blanket measures approximately 7'x8'.

2  A Dress Fit for a Mushroom Kingdom Princess in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by lady leeann on: March 27, 2013 06:34:26 PM
I have been away from Craftster for faaaaaaaar too long  Shocked, but thankfully I've still been crafting.  Below is my most recent creation. I wanted to create a dress for my best friend's daughter who is 3 months old today! I used a New Look pattern for the dress and used freezer stenciling for the design.

The finished product:

The dress was so much fun, I just had to indulge in the geekery some more to make this hair accessory  Wink: (To be added to a headband)

The full story and more pics can be found at my blog - http://www.ladyleeann.blogspot.com/2013/03/pretty-enough-for-mushroom-kingdom.html

Thanks for looking!

3  Spiderman Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lady leeann on: August 23, 2011 10:08:13 AM
So, it's been a long time since I've posted here, but it doesn't mean I haven't been crafting or looking around.  Months later, I finally got around to uploading pictures of one of my favorite projects!

A friend of mine was going to see Spiderman on Broadway back in November.  She called me around August asking if I would sew here a dress since she had "No Formal Spiderman Clothes". (Granted, I'm not sure how many people can say they do have formal Spiderman Clothes)

Here is what I created with the help of some sheets, New Look 6557, and a few mimosas.  (My payment for creating the dress for her.)

Front View:

Back View: (She cracked up that it happened to say "Spidey Sense" on her butt)

Inside Detail:

And of course, action shot! (Another condition for making the dress for her!)

Apparently she was quite the hit.  She got random high fives on the street and had several people ask to take her pictures.  I will admit, I was so glad I could help her have a great evening.

Thank you so much for looking!

4  Re: Fill a Trick-or-Treat Bag Gallery in The Swap Gallery by lady leeann on: October 09, 2010 06:21:27 AM
Without further ado, here is my awesome package from NH822:

First up.  The bag itself:

The details on it are simply amazing!  I can't even begin to imagine how to make a bag like this.  I swear, every time I look at it, I'm finding another new detail.  There's even a cute little rat (pin) scurrying up the shoulder strap!

Next up.  Awesome place mats.  Unless I'm wrong, they're hand-painted.  It's so great because I was just telling my husband I wanted to find Halloween place mats for the table.

Next we have a cute little cat.  He has the prettiest green eyes and cute little nose. 

He's already lurking amongst my other decorations on the bookshelf.

Next, my partner is so thoughtful.  She remembered that I mentioned I was disappointed that I wouldn't be at my new house for the first Halloween. So she made me a "Halloween2Go" Box.  I think I'll be taking this guy into work so I can get in the spirit all month long.



Finally, the most awesome thing ever:

I am in love with this necklace.  In fact, I actually wore it to work yesterday.  It looks so great I will probably end up wearing it all year long.

Close up of the pendant:

And finally, all my great "swag".  This is the part that I have to fight with the hubby over:

There's cute little earrings in there as well as some lip balm and a spooky double feature of House on Haunted Hill and The Last Man on Earth.  (Gotta love Vincent Price)  Also, no lie, as I was opening up the bag I told the hubby I was really craving pop rocks and no sooner said, that's what I pulled out of the bag!  It made my night.

Before I go, one last cute little close up of another goody:

I was so lucky for this swap.  Now off to stress about NH822's package!   Shocked

5  Re: Harry Potter - Luna Lovegood Scarf - My Take - PATTERN & CHART ADDED! in Crochet: Completed Projects by lady leeann on: August 22, 2010 03:53:38 PM
It took a few tries, but I finally finished my very own Luna scarf.  I used a grey bamboo blend.  I can't wait until the weather cools down and I can wear it. 

Please pardon the rogue paw, Mongo never has quite mastered the command of "back up"

Sorry there are no actions shots, but the camera battery decided to die.

6  My first apron (reversable) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lady leeann on: July 18, 2010 04:05:54 PM
So I finally made my first apron.  It's also one of my first sewing projects that I didn't use a pattern. 

First side.  (I love the cute little sand dollars)

Reverse side:

The apron was a gift to my sister-in-law after she saw my (store bought) apron and really like it.  I was trying to get back into sewing and it seemed like a good project for it.  The shape didn't work out quite the way I wanted to, but there's always next time.

Thanks for checking!  Critiques and comments are welcome.

7  Re: Your First Stitches in Needlework: Completed Projects by lady leeann on: July 18, 2010 03:40:51 PM
It took forever for me to get around to taking pictures, but here is my first embroidery.  Sorry the pic isn't more clear, but I'm not used to trying to photograph detail like this:

I took the pattern from Badbirds and transferred it by hand.  (so it's got a few minor differences)

Sorry the fabric is so busy.  I didn't anticipate it coming out so well, so I was just using some scrap fabric.

8  Paisley Skirt - NewLook 0695 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lady leeann on: June 24, 2010 03:58:10 PM
Hi Everyone!

This is not my first sewing project, but it is my first one since joining Craftster so I figured I would share and try my hand at posting!  Grin

I was buying this paisley material to make my sister-in-law an apron and loved it so much I bought enough to make a skirt for myself as well.  The pattern was easy to follow and only took a few hours to complete.  What makes this so exciting was that it was my first (mostly) successful zipper!  I was thinking about adding some ribbon on the bottom; maybe an inch or two above the hem.  Thoughts?

Sorry for the links as opposed to pics.  (Apparently I'm not allowed yet)

Thanks for checking it out!   Cheesy
