Wow. This is . . . how can I put this . . . morbidly beautiful, maybe? Tongue It is a fantastic piece, very Tim Burton/Corpse Bride-ish. It's almost got an antique vibe with the colors and the jeweled flowers. I love it. Smiley
122  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about a banana pattern on: August 08, 2010 07:23:09 PM
Hi. Smiley I looked at the pattern, and I kept ending up with the same problem you were, and I figured out what happened.

For round 14, where it says "(ch 10, turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook, 8 sc)" it means, as according to the chart, that you sc in the 2nd chain from the hook AND in the next 8 chains, and 1 sc + 8 sc = 9 sc. Then you would sl st into the body of the banana instead of the last chain, which makes your peel stitches come out even all the way around. Smiley

I hope I helped. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
123  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Things to use as beads on: August 08, 2010 01:09:02 PM
I love beaded jewelry - small, big, chunky, skinny, whatever! But beads (especially the pretty glass ones) tend to be expensive when you're buying lots of them for multiple projects. So I've been on the hunt for things to use as beads, since you can use pretty much anything you can put a hole in. So far I have:

1. Metal washers/nuts (my dad has a huge workshop and has more than he knows what to do with, so I use some of them as beads)
2. Recycled plastic bottles (I found the tutorial on here about making beads from them)
3. Old/broken jewelry (take off all the beads and reuse them!)

I'm always on the lookout for more, though. Anyone else have any ideas for beads?

She is super-cute! Smiley Does she stand on her own?
125  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: WIP Wednesday On Thursday! July 29 on: August 01, 2010 12:52:02 PM
I'm trying to figure out how to make a pair of fingerless driving gloves - one glove is about 3/4 done. The only pattern I found was on the Lion Brand website and I hated how it fit on my hand, so I'm trying to make my own pair. Figuring out the increases is a little difficult, though.

Thank you! I rather like it. Smiley I might redo the strap though, I'm afraid it's not strong enough to hold the purse when it's full of stuff.

(Also, thank you to whoever made my images visible. Cheesy )

Woohoo! First Craftster challenge, I'm excited. Cheesy

Here's my entry:

128  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / RRR Challenge #1: Fender Bender purse on: July 31, 2010 12:24:50 PM
Okay, so . . . sewing is TOTALLY not my thing. I don't have the patience for it, so my stitches tend to be big and loopy and my seams are uneven and . . . yeah. It's just bad. I'll stick to crochet and leave sewing to people who are good at it. Tongue

Anyway, this purse came out pretty cute for my lack of sewing skills. It's made from an old Fender guitar t-shirt I bought several years ago, the skirt of a purple vintage dress I found at a thrift store, and a recycled zipper I found at another thrift store for 5 cents. The strap is some satin ribbon that used to be a tie on a skirt I have.

And the inside:

Yeah, you can see my seams on the inside . . . shhhh. Don't tell anyone. Tongue The purse is about 11"x10", and the strap is about 3 ft in length.

CC welcome, though I will probably not attempt to sew a purse again anytime soon. Tongue (And I promise to have 10 posts next time, so you don't have to click through the links . . . my apologies.)

That is awesome! A friend of mine made me a Starburst bracelet, I should tell her to make me a necklace to match now. Tongue

Somehow it looks prettier than the version on the Lion Brand website . . .

It's gorgeous nonetheless. Smiley It drapes beautifully. What yarn did you use?
