11  Cut vinyl stickers - pink goodness of my own design in Completed Projects by animegirlie on: January 11, 2009 01:11:26 PM
Hi everyone!

I just started cutting vinyl stickers this weekend and wanted to show a few off.

I did two illustrations over the last year or so that I wanted to have stuck on some of my personal items.

First up -

tropical flower on my Anssi Stool from Ikea:

and second, a stylized passion flower on my suitcase:

for more info go to my blog (listed in my signature).

on a side note, both images and designs are (C) Malinda Lloyd 2008/2009 - please don't re-use Smiley

14  Can you tell what this is supposed to be? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by animegirlie on: November 30, 2008 01:08:39 PM

so I made this over the weekend. It's under recycled because the copper piece is actually cotton batting infused with paint that I used as a stamper for a (failed) printing project.

made with:
cotton batting, copper paint, wire, embroidery floss, 2 different types of glue.

What do you think it's supposed to be? I was picturing a specific thing when I was making it, but some people have said they can't identify what's it's supposed to be without explanation.

I received my wish from Banga yesterday!

please prepare your wisting fingers, because it's GORGEOUS!!

She sent me 2 display options above is just one, but I think I'll fame them and display them long was with the bike framing the other two. (pushpins aren't going through the art just on the edges).

This picture does not do them justice, there is some clear shiny details that aren't showing up. I'll see if I can get some macro shots later on.

thank you so much, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the art!!!

18  Fat Bottom Bag - Burnt Orange in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by animegirlie on: October 18, 2008 09:46:47 AM
I finally finished my first Fat Bottom Bag from the happy hooker book!!

I opted to go with crocheted handles instead of the plastic ones - I'll be more liekly to use it this way since hard purse handles bug me.

Here is my umbrella modeling:

I used a different flower pattern - it's loosely based on this one by stitch diva: http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=FREE003

I have come to love the herringbone half double crochet stitch that makes up the purse - it's soooo simple and turns out a really cool texture.

19  Granny Square Frilly Scarf AKA The Lori scarf - PATTERN INCLUDED in Crochet: Completed Projects by animegirlie on: October 08, 2008 05:19:29 PM
 I made this frilly scarf for Sewing Lori in the I Love Buttons swap on craftster.org. I wrote down the pattern as I made another one in the Ongoing Wish List Swap. Ive finally gotten around to actually typing it up. YEAH!!

Granny Square Frilly Scarf AKA the Lori scarf.


    * Any yarn you like
    * A hook in the size recommended for your yarn
    * Needle to weave in ends


Make 6 basic granny squares you can use any granny square pattern you like I prefer this one because it works up really quickly.

Granny Square pattern:

    * Ch 4, sl to join round
    * RD1 ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), 2 dc, chain 3 *3dc, ch 3* repeat * to* until you have 12 dc worked in the loop, sl into 3rd chain of 1st dc
    * RD2 sl to next ch sp (should be a corner), in ch sp - ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), 2 dc, ch 3, 3dc ch3, *in next ch sp - 3 dc, ch 3* repeat * to *until you come to a corner. in the corner, 3dc, ch3, 3dc ch3 (repeat each set of instructions until you come back to the beginning stitch) sl to join round.
    * RD3 sl to next ch sp, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc) in ch sp 2dc, ch3, 3dc, ch 3, *in next ch sp 3dc, ch3*. Repeat * to * for each ch sp until you come to a corner. For corner ch sp 3dc, ch3, 3dc, ch3) repeat this pattern until you go all the way around. sl to join round
    * FO leaving a long tail

When all 6 squares are completed begin to join squares by using the tails

    * sl to the corner using your tail yarn. Sl into corner of a square, making sure that the tail yarn for youre the following square is as close as possible to the opposite side youre working on.
    * Continue joining all 6 squares in the same manner.

You will be working the finishing like one long row all the way around.

Pick up your working yarn again.

    * Starting at one corner end, join yarn in the 1st dc next to the ch sp. sl in 1st dc
    * PART 1 - 6tr in each ch sp, sc in each dc until you reach a join between squares.
    * PART 2 - Make 3dc around the join (like you would in a loop) this should be treated like an extra ch space. Since the corners of the joins use the ch space in the corners you will need to sc until you get to the next ch space (see image below to get an idea of what it should look liek when you go around the second half of the scarf)
    * Repeat Part 1 then Part 2 for each square and each join all the way around.
    * FO
    * Weave in ends
    * Embellish as you please!

Feel Free to PM me if you have any questions.

Please post pictures if you use the pattern!

20  bottle holder with strap - PATTERN INCLUDED in Crochet: Completed Projects by animegirlie on: October 04, 2008 05:31:59 PM
I'm FINALLY getting around to posting the pattern for a water bottle holder I made for the Ongoing Wish List swap.

Close up:


    * hook of your choice - what ever is recommended for your yarn.
    * cotton yarn with some stretch (I used yarn that was lighter than worsted weight)


    * chain 4
    * sl in 1st chain to form a loop
    * work 8 sc in loop
    * sl to join round


RD 1 - ch 1, sc in same stitch (2 sc - ch1 counts as 1st stitch), *sc in next stitch, 2sc in teh following stitch* repeat from * to * until you get back to the join - sl into ch1 stitch of round [12 stiches]
RD2 - repeat Rd 1 [18 st]
RD3 - repeat Rd 1 [27 st]
RD4 - repeat Rd 1 [40 st]
RD5 - repeat Rd 1 [60 st] - this should be enough for a smal bottle with small yarn - you can keep going if you need a larger bottle size.
RD6 - repeat Rd 1 [88 st]


RD7 - ch1, sc in same stitch, sc each stitch in rd, sl to join round (this row should now appear to be on the edge of the circle you just made).
RD8 - Begin mesh - ch 6, skip 2 sc, 1 tr in next stitch repeat from * to * (all sc in round) sl into 4th ch on 1st stitch to join rd.
REPEAT RD8 until the holder is the desired height.


RDx - ch1, sc in each stitch around, sl to join round
RDx+1 - sc in next 8 stitches
RDx+2 - ch1, turn, sc in each stitch across.

REPEAT RD x+2 until strap is desired length

Flatten the main body of the holder to determine placement on other side of holder (should be directly opposite from the other side of strap).

sl into sc to join strap to holder.


Weave in ends


hope you enjoy!!
