1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / just peachy dress on: April 18, 2019 10:47:13 PM
I made this dress for my future niece. It should fit a size 3-6 months. I've found that making newborn sized clothing is almost always a waste of time. IF the baby even fits into newborn sizes, they outgrow the clothes so fast. This will hopefully get at least a few wears out of it. And it may even fit the right sized stuffed animal once it no longer fits. I hope my sister in law loves it! ,<3

The color is a little off. I didn't want to wait until morning to take a photo with natural light. The main color is antique white, the under skirt and rose are a peach color. I believe the actual color name is sherbet. And now I am craving an orange dreamsicle bar :p

Edited to add a better photo:


2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mermaid tail set on: April 15, 2019 06:28:03 PM
I recently finished making a mermaid tail set, and I wish it was in adult sized! I love how it turned out!

My brother and his wife are expecting a little girl in August, so I made this mermaid tail and sand dollar top for my niece-to-be. I hope they get some adorable photos!

This was my first time doing the crocodile stitch. I got about 20 rows into my original attempt and realized I was either doing it wrong, or doing it another way would look nicer. Im glad I frogged, because it looks much better!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Snoopy vs the Red Baron on: January 22, 2019 06:51:13 AM
I started a Snoopy doll about four months ago, and finally got around to finishing him yesterday. Once I finished the doll, I decided he needed his Red Baron fighting costume. I freehanded all of the costume pieces, crocheting the cap and goggles and knitting the scarf. I love how he turned out!

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Red Fox on: October 19, 2018 02:57:46 AM
I was at the thrift store last weekend when I found three skeins of some lovely red tweed yarn. I decided to buy them, and thought for a few days about what I wanted to make with it. When I remembered that I had some grey and oatmeal tweed colors on hand, I decided I needed to make a fox, so I did!

I absolutely love how he turned out. And this only used one skein of the red, so I can make two more so he has some friends. My sister, QueenHobo, already wants to claim him. She has declared his name is Rupert. Should I be a nice big sister and send it to her, or be a mean big sister and have her make do with a photo? Mwahahaha Smiley

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rainbow Giraffe on: August 30, 2018 05:13:00 PM
I just finished up this rainbow giraffe. All I need to do is wash it and frame it. I will go pick out a frame this weekend.

This took me about 75 hours to complete. It went a lot faster than the rainbow lion I recently completed. Having black aida cloth certainly speeds up the stitching on this, however, I actually do prefer how the black stitches look on the lion cross stitch compared to the exposed black aida.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / wire tree 2 on: August 27, 2018 03:25:20 AM
This was my second attempt at a wire tree. I used much finer wire and beads.

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / wire tree 1 on: August 27, 2018 03:21:48 AM
I tried to make a wire tree. This was my first attempt. I'm mostly happy with how it turned out.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Totoro blanket on: August 27, 2018 03:15:30 AM
I made a Totoro blanket for a friend, and it was well received. Smiley

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / chevron blanket on: August 27, 2018 03:12:41 AM
I completed this chevron blanket using my own pattern. I created a tutorial for creating a chevron blanket with a straight edge as many people struggle with that issue. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simple-chevron-blanket

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crocheted cowl on: August 27, 2018 03:08:40 AM
I made a cowl for Roler's mom. She sent me 55 skeins of yarn halfway across the country, so I had to make her a thank you gift. It's not even near enough, but it's a start! This cowl is made with a cotton and sari silk blend yarn. I love it!
