1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sweater from the cover of Crochet! magazine Jan. 2009 on: March 15, 2009 10:33:23 AM
This is the sweater on the cover of Crochet! Magazine (Jan. 2009). It worked up quickly and fits well. Caron SS. Do you like it?

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Easy, Warm, Cardigan sweater on: January 25, 2009 10:55:36 AM
This is only the second sweater I have ever made. It fits fine and is very warm. I have been wearing it a lot this winter.

It's made with 1 1/2 skeins of JoAnn's Sensations yarn (the brushed kind). It was fast and easy...my favorite kind of pattern  Wink. I definitely think it's good for beginners too.
I used this pattern, but I didn't add the length or the collar. I wanted a sweater instead of a coat.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My sweater fits! on: September 16, 2008 04:43:11 PM
This is my first attempt at clothing. I am thrilled that it fits!

I am going to add a button where I am holding it closed.

I used this pattern, but I made it longer and added waist shaping, made the sleeves longer, and added two rows of sc instead of the picot. It was an easy pattern and it only took me two weeks to finish.

Thanks for looking!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Purple cat with a bird on it's tail on: April 23, 2008 01:30:27 PM
I saw this cat at Hoop Love and wanted to put it on a towel. I added a bird because I just thought it needed it. The rick rack isn't sewn on yet and it's not ironed. I am going to mail it to my mom as part of her Mothers Day gift.

Thanks to JenB, Kittykill, and TreeCactus for their advice. The back looks very neat.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / What is the trick to making the back look neat? on: April 14, 2008 04:33:16 PM
On some things it just doesn't matter, but it does on a dishtowel. I've see some embroidery where the back looks as good as the front. Not mine. How do I make that happen?

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Swap the unwanted gift on: November 30, 2007 04:28:08 PM
I just thought I'd throw this idea out here.....

Since there is a pretty good chance you will receive a Christmas gift that just isn't "you" or you just don't like, maybe we could find a way to find them homes where they are appreciated.

I haven't given this idea much thought, but maybe we could post what we have to trade (picture would be nice) and if anyone would like it, they could post what they would be willing to trade for it.

I'm sure somebody could figure out a way to do this.

Just a thought  Smiley
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Jack Skellington 3 feet tall paper mache' on: November 06, 2007 06:41:28 AM
I just thought I'd show you this sculpture of Jack Skellington my daughter made from paper mache'. He is about 3 feet tall (maybe more). He looks quite impressive in her room.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Easy no-sew dog shirt from sweatpants on: November 06, 2007 06:22:45 AM
This shirt is so easy to make, I wanted to share it with those of you who have dogs that get cold in the winter months.

Just get a pair of old sweatpants (makes 2 shirts Smiley). Make sure the cuff fits comfortably around the dogs neck. Cut it the length you need (measure from neck to tail). Then cut out the arm holes. This fabric doesn't need hemmed. Decorate if you want to. So warm and easy!

Sorry the pics are so grainy, but I think they show the fit pretty well.
9  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Easy short cardigan on: October 10, 2007 12:45:14 PM
Now that it is cooler here in Indiana I am thinking of making this:

It seems easy enough and may work up quickly.

Has anyone made this?
Would anyone like to?
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Heavily embroidered towel. Aunt Martha and original designs. My debut. on: September 11, 2007 11:57:42 AM
I loved the Tea Towel Tour (right here at Craftster) so much that I had to learn to embroider too.

Here's my towel. It's mostly backstitch with a little satin stitch and sharpie and whatever felt right  Cheesy. I used Aunt Martha patterns (the cups and tea pot) and then drew everything else on it (I don't know why, but I like the tea bag).

Since this is my first attempt, I'd really appreciate knowing what you think. Thanks!

Try to ignore that it still has pencil marks on it and hasn't been ironed yet.
