1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: First Crochet Project EVAR. >.< on: March 20, 2012 11:24:33 AM
I love the non-tradition colors for the baby blanket too! When my daughter was born a friend of mine also bought her very non-baby colored items and I loved them for their originality ^_^

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / ZUN Scarf, Special ^^Chakra^^ Scarf {Images inside} on: September 27, 2011 09:02:55 AM
My first special edition to the wonderfully customizable Zun Scarves.

To keep up with the side braiding of the two skeins of yarn I have used two separate skeins of black yarn. Making first an 2.5" by 8' pure black scarf. Then I individually crocheted two 2" circles of each Chakra color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) and sewed them up each side of the scarf.

The first one created was a gift for my most Inspirational friend. She has helped me out though a lot, and helped to inspire me to push forward.

(Pardon my bad lighting in the photos, the camera was dead so I used my iPod to take the pictures)

(You can see it's pure black and ZUN is sewn into it)

(You can see the length of black in between the Chakra ends)

(The Chakra circles all sewn on and in order from Crown Chakra to Root Chakra)

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / "Zun" Scarf - Inspiration to Thrive for your own Happiness. {Lots-O-Images} on: September 27, 2011 08:53:24 AM
Recently I came up with my own little inspirational idea. It started as a time killer while I couldn't sleep for a few weeks straight >.>  But it ended up meaning much more to me so I decided to take it all a step further and make more for others. The scarf started out as something I could do with minimal light at night so that I could crochet and not wake up my family.

The pattern it's self is extremely basic, the only original thing I have done is the "braiding" of the yarns up the sides as I continue the scarf. The first few of the scarves are very basic in the sense that they are just two colors. But that's one of the most inspiration parts of these scarves. I love being able to come up with many ideas to change it up.

The basic Zun Scarf looks like this...

(Coffee and Cafe colors)

(The word ZUN sewn on)

(Purple and Green Zun Scarf, with ZUN sewn on)

(Blue and Green Zun Scarf, with ZUN sewn on)

As you can see the scarf is striped with two colors. The scarf is approximately 2-2.5 inches wide and 8 foot long. Making it great for wrapping multiple times or wrapping once and draping it long down both sides. I also sew the word "ZUN" into the back, bottom of one side.

I have completed three basic Zun Scarves which I have tried multiple ideas for inspiration on them. So far I have done little crocheted stars, circles, triangles, leaves, and more. I have used buttons to decorate the bottoms. I have done tassels along the bottoms of each side. I love the fact that with such a simple scarf there are SO many different possibilities.

Possibility of the crocheted stars

Although I prefer my Zun scarf just basic with stripes. I haven't done anything to it.

I created a saying to go with my Zun scarves, since for me it is a great source of inspiration. "Inspiration to Thrive for your own Happiness."

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / BJD clothing (girl and boy) on: May 24, 2011 02:02:47 PM
Recently I received 2 BJD Hujoo's! Iliana my Hujoo Berry (the girl) was my Mother's day gift, William my Hujoo Wings (The boy) was a gift from my Fiancee. The Wings is a 26cm BJD and the Berry is a 24cm BJD.

They are so cute! But when I got them and they were naked I had to make them something to wear. Ilia has gotten two outfit with crochet, and William has a vest that I crocheted.

So here they are all dressed up!

Ilia in her first outfit a crocheted pink top (using embroidery floss) and a skirt I crocheted a white belt for and sewed some silk on. Her choker is crocheted from a pinkish-red floss and has a small scrap-booking flower charm hanging from it.

Ilia in her second outfit, a pretty crocheted rainbow shirt and skirt (both made from embroidery floss) the bottom hem of the skirt and shirt are crocheted to create a little "fringe" to them. The headband is crocheted from a fun yarn that is thin but very fluffy (sadly I don't have the name of the yarn.)

William only has one crocheted piece for now. His pants are handmade also, but his vest is crocheted from black embroidery floss and red floss to tie.
This picture the floss is tied loose and his vest was able to have an "open" look to it.

This picture the floss is tied tighter and vest had a nice closed look to it, with a nice red circle where it was held together.

I plan to make more clothing for this size doll along with some bigger clothing. I recently discovered how much I like to crochet with the floss and crochet threads. I was always intimidated by the small hooks, but I am really glad I over came that!

I love the idea.
I never thought to make a hanging plant holder for my plants. It would have saved my basil from my cat Sad
But now I know what to do when I get my next indoor plant Smiley
