11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Button Tab Bracelet 3 images on: August 29, 2009 09:33:15 PM
Ok, I am still trying to use up one really huge skien of yarn and had the idea to make a bracelet. So I made a bracelet with a button tab made up as I went. I have to do some tweaking to the pattern, but other than that I think it turned out perfect.

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slouchy Beret with Button Tab *Now with pattern* on: August 24, 2009 07:58:10 PM
This has been on my list of things to make for awhile and I finally sat down a made one. I made the pattern up as I went but I think it turned out amazing. This is my first beret and my fourth crocheted hat. I had no idea how to do ribbing before going into this project, but quickly learned following how tos online. The button tab just kind of happened following an idea that I thought could possibly work and well it did...It is definately slouchy and comfortable. The pattern is below so others can make it as well. The stitches I used were dc, fpdc, & bpdc (both of which I had no idea of until today) for the ribbing.

I was thinking of adding a brim which I might do with the second one I make. I am addicted  Cheesy

Would love to hear your opinions....

I will try to answer any questions you may have with the pattern. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to writing up a crochet pattern. I will be working on another one so I will have pictures of how to do the band and tab. I used Acrylic brushed yarn with a K hook. I am unsure of the gauge as I kind of winged it.

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Slouchy Beret help on: August 24, 2009 10:42:31 AM
How would I go about making a hat like this? http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Accessories/Hats/Kelly-Green-Crocheted-Beret-276556.jsp

I know how to start it off but I am having a little trouble wrapping my head around how to do those type of stitches (sorry I have no idea what the technical name of specific stitches are as I only dabble in crocheting, so hopefully someone will be able to help me out)

14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 4 new journals...Twilight, Star trek, New Moon, Bela Lugosi *Img. heavy* on: August 12, 2009 04:18:07 PM
Here is my first venture into journals, these were quick and easy journals that I put together. I made these for a friend who is a screenwriting major and figured that this would be nice for her to write down ideas and the like. i made these in photoshop including the cover, which I had found images and placed them all over. Her name is written using a font I downloaded off the net. Each of the journals feature 20 pages, with a movie/actor she likes. As she and I are major Twilight fans and Star Trek fans I couldn't resist, her favorite vampire is the original Dracula Bela Lugosi, so there is one with him as well. The Twilight one was created for the last Twilight swap I was in, but turned out so good that I went onto make different types.

All I did was basically print, fold in half and stitched together.

If anyone wants the pages, I uploaded the files (see below). They are lined as well, so perfect for notes, letters, etc.


Edit: Here are the journal pages.....

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Men's Blazer on: August 09, 2009 12:55:40 PM
Ok, so this one was my first venture into menswear. I used a burdastyle pattern.
It really looks better in person, I don't have a male model or dressform to use so my dressform has to do. There are Rhinestones along the collar and fully lined. It is made with 100% cotton black twill and 65% Polyester 35% black cotton lining.

What do you think?
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Preshrinking 100% cotton twill? on: July 28, 2009 04:48:27 PM
I am making a blazer and would like to know as to whether or not I should preshrink the fabric. If I should, should I just wash and dry as to how the garment would be washed or can I iron with moisture and heat?
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Blazer fabric on: July 20, 2009 10:53:50 AM
What fabric should I use for a blazer? The blazer needs to be breathable as well as have the ability to wick away moisture. The intended use would be for on stage, so it will be quite hot and would need to breath. Any ideas?

I was thinking of just a basic cotton fabric, would this be a perfect idea or not?

Any advice would be helpful.

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Drafting Men patterns on: July 19, 2009 03:04:34 PM
I was wondering if drafting men's patterns are really different than drafting women's? I know that a men's shirt pattern is pretty much straight from the arm pit down but is drafting them the same way?

I also would like to know if there is any source online that shows you how to draft men's patterns?

19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Infant Dress *3 IMG* on: July 09, 2009 04:34:12 PM
I made this from a pattern here: http://snazzlecraft.blogspot.com/2009/04/free-8-24-month-dress-pattern-finally.html

I usually make clothes for adults but had been wanting to make some girl clothes as a few of my friends had baby girls. So, I went on to make this, I will have to say though I am going to make tons more as they were actually quite fun to make and turned out so adorable.

I used velcro for the straps instead of buttons, topstitched the seams as well as serged them and used a rolled hem (which has become my new obsession).
