1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cabled Baby Sweater on: March 10, 2013 07:24:24 AM
I found this pattern and immediately decided I needed to make it for our baby-to-be. It took a lot longer than any baby sweater I've made before, but was so worth the effort. It was actually pretty easy to work up, just time consuming.

Here's a link to the pattern:

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dish Towels- My first embroidery project on: July 21, 2012 07:40:39 PM
While walking through Hobby Lobby last week the embroidery iron on transfers caught my eye, so I picked a couple up and decided I would like to learn. I stitched them onto flour sack towels to give as Christmas gifts this year. The wine one was my very first one. So far I have learned backstitch, satin stitch, french knots, and vine stitch.

This was a pretty easy project once I got the hang of it. I used Hobby Lobby's I love this Cotton yarn. I'm planning to make up a bunch to give as Christmas gifts.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Beardie Hammock on: June 30, 2012 11:24:43 AM
Who says you can't craft for reptiles? Tongue

I wanted to give my bearded dragon, Norbert, another place to hang out, so I made him a hammock! I used old batman sheets and some suction cups with hooks to make it. (Like the reptile hammocks at the pet store but cheaper.)

He's still getting used to the idea of sitting in a hammock, but he has crawled up there a few times. He enjoys sitting underneath it too. Hopefully once he gets comfortable with it he'll find it a nice place for a nap. Now I just need to make another our other dragon, Yoshi.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Overalls on: February 11, 2012 06:18:47 AM
I made 3 pair of overalls using Simplicity 2459. They snap at the legs. The I made them in the Small, Medium, and X-large sizes. The legs on the X-large seem a little short, but other than that I really like the pattern.

These were a gift for my neice for Christmas:

These are for my future nephew. He's due to arrive around April 1st:

And these are going in the hope chest  Wink
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Friendship Mittens on: February 11, 2012 05:30:57 AM
I found this free pattern for "Friendship Mittens" on Ravelry last summer, and finally got around to trying it out. It was surprisingly easy, finished them in just a couple days. I think I know what my friends are getting for Christmas next year  Smiley

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Blastoise used craft attack! It's super effective! on: October 31, 2011 04:02:57 PM
Blastoise used body slam. Enemy Pikachu has fainted!

My husband decided he wanted to be Blastoise (pokemon) for halloween this year. The shell and the front part are paper mached cardboard painted with spraypaint. The shell pattern was done with tape. He also wore gloves that I sewed claws onto and a tail that I made out of an old tshirt. The shell is held on with straps that attached up by the cannons and tied behind his back. (on a side note, I thought it would be good to crochet him a blue hat, but he prefered the idea of shaving off all his hair and his beard and painting himself blue.  Roll Eyes)Enjoy Smiley

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 5 Beanies (pic heavy) on: May 16, 2011 03:10:47 PM
I made these for a fundraiser fashion show & trunk show comming up this week. Not quite the right season for beanies, but I'm hoping they go over well anyways. In WI you never know when you'll need a hat!

I do all my hats freehand, so no pattern available, but if you like them feel free to try to copy them Wink


9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hats, Hats, and more Hats on: February 02, 2011 01:00:23 PM
Here's some hats I've made over this winter.  Each one is made by trial and error, so when I decide I don't like it I rip it out and start over. It's a long process, but I end up happier in the long run. Unfortuately, trial and error leaves me with no patterns to share, but most are pretty basic beanies, so they shouldn't be too hard for anyone interested to figure out Smiley

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simple Skirt w/mini-tutorial on: January 07, 2011 01:05:42 PM
This is basically the easiest skirt ever. This is the fourth one I've made, and thought its about time I share it for others to enjoy.
To make it you just need 2 measurements: your hip measurment and the length you want plus a few inches for the elastic waist and the hem.
Cut 2 rectangles that are (hip measurement) X (Length + allowances).
Sew the sides of the skirt together. (Note: it will look huge, don't worry.)
Press about 1/2" over on the top, then fold again and press the width of your elastic plus 1/4"-1/2".
Sew waistband, leaving an opening for elastic. Insert elastic. Sew the rest of the waistband shut.
Hem bottom.

Mine took almost 2 yards of fabric, but it varies with the length/width needed. I used 2" wide elastic, but really anything from 1"-2" has worked fine for these in the past.
