11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: scary cat bag on: April 14, 2005 06:03:32 PM
its winged (?).  Lets see, I made a bowl shape and then I attached a lid with ears and then i shaped the lid to a slant with a hole for the nose then I made some eyes and then some pupils and then I attached them by sc around with orange.  I put the handle in the back- just a thick cord.  I'll probably try to redo this so I'll post a tutorial when that happens.

I started making this cat bag and it turned out very scary. I think I will give it to my ex.
you open it via a front flap that closes around the nose (I put yarn in it)

oh! tree branch scarf thats a good idea!

I rarely have an idea when I set out to make something. It just takes shape depending on the nature of the yarn and what is lurking in my subconscious. Perhaps this is why I love crocheting so much.  Its like dreaming! The repetitiveness of the action kind of lulls you off like that. I've been known to substitute sleep with crocheting some nights.  Not a clever thing to do though!

I also do a lot of special orders with folks that leave the "theme" kind of open-ended.  For example, I am working on a bug hat that may include walking sticks etc...I love special orders because they take me out of my comfort zone.

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rat-Inspired Dear Birthday Bag on: April 07, 2005 09:26:21 PM
I made this bag for my friend, Valerie.  She inspired me to adopt my beloved rats, NIMH, Hummus, and Anise.

She does amazing stuff for her site: http://www.dearbirthday.com/ . Very much worth a click!
bag reads dear birthday
Happy Birthday Valerie!
Special thanks go to Hummus for posing.

I work in a coffee bar overlooking the salad station.  Over the salad station there hangs a giant banner depicting 2 pea pods in all their spring glory.  Thus the pea pod hat ...

OK! here we go!
first Ch6
slst into 6th ch from hook to form a ring
ch 1
sc into loop 14 times and slst to connect. Now that ring is SOLID!

ch 6 and slst into into second loop from hk (this is on the chain NOT on the ring)
down the chain
NOW slst 3 spaces over on ring
note: if you do longer or shorter spikes take into account how many spaces you have to work with on your ring - you will need to sc more/less then 14.  So PLAN AHEAD

when you are all done spiking you can either weave the ends in or leave them.  I like to leave them so I can tie them together with the outer flower to put on a pin or so that I can weave them into a base.

Now pause to check it out! Its a wacky star! Imagine that.
Now for the outer flower-- very very simple!
(this is another way to form a solid ring)
ch 3
6sc in 2nd loop from hook
slst to connect

*ch 8 and sc into next loop on ring*around until you get to the end.  The flower should look cool and choatic
 Tie off.  Pull ends threw the ring in the star.

Now pick a button or bead to attach to the center.  I choose a "Baristador" button  (a zine I am doing with a fellow barista)

then, of course, its choose your own adventure.  I decided to make a pin
  If you like, you can make leaves for the flower.  Do you need a leaf tutorial?

I did two special order hats today...
the first was a bunny hat...
the second was a gothic flower hat
I don't know how the second one will be received.  The colors are really odd
