21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Tank Trim/Neckline *NOW W/ TUTE LINK!* on: December 19, 2009 11:31:45 PM
With the "wanna-be winter" here in California, tank tops are on a marvelous sale.
I saw a crochet trim tank post on cutoutandkeep and demanded myself to make it..and here it is.

By spring, I'm pretty sure I'll have tons of tanks to wear everyday during the scorching, bone dry summer!  Grin

I think it's beautious for my first try, anyone concur?

*******NOW W/ TUTE!**********
As some of you may have been waiting, HERE it is! VIDEO by me! Cheesy

Hopefully it will be helpful. Got questions and hopefully I can help.
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Slouchy, Non-Slouchy hat?! on: December 13, 2009 12:27:47 PM
Lol, yes, my title probably sounds pathetic...but that's what I'm looking for!
I've made about 10 "slouchy" hats and not I'm kind of getting sick of em.
I'm looking for a wide slouchy hat that extends OUT, not down to the neck.
I want it to extend in the back of the head, not on top of the head like a stocking cap.
Maybe a slouchy beanie is the correct word?!

Help? Patterns?
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Pen mark on crochet hat on: December 08, 2009 01:55:34 PM
Help please!

I was tracing my crochet hat to make the lining with a RED PEN.
It's a very small mark on the yarn. How can I get it out without destroying the hat.
Again, it's very small and on one small strand of yarn.
HELP! Thanks.

So "winter" is here in California. Realistically, there is no damn winter.  Angry
So depressing. Lol. Thankfully, it's cold enough for me to wear beanies and not look like a polar bear in the Sahara Desert.  Cheesy
I've been throwing up hats like crazy and decided "HEY, I can make my hats useful for some folks..my grandparents in negative weather in Pittsburgh, PA!"

This one is the first one I made. It's MINE....I keep having to remind the people in my house that. Haha.

SCREAM CREAM!This one is for my grandmother(s). I didn't think they'd like the brim.

GOT STEELER FEVER? This one is for my grandfather. I was going to make this one for both my grandfathers...I found out that the other one likes the Washington Redskeins...

Just showing how much I <3 this hat! Gotta make myself one!

Question! Should I add braided ends? Would "elders" like that? Or should I leave as is?

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Boring Platform to Modern Bed Headboard! on: October 03, 2009 03:54:38 PM
So, I am in the process of redecorating my room. It's becoming very...very...very...slow process now that college has started....UGH!
So first thing I got rid of was my twin bed (it had to go) and replaced it with a full. So I was looking into beds and like the contemporary/modern design and decided "Hey, I want to save money. I can make my own headboard and get a platform bed!" I got a new in box platform bed frame off craigslist for $40 which is $80 online! Then it was on to the headboard and this is what I did!



In the process!

May-May wanted to help! Couldn't get her off!  Cheesy

Close up fabric.

Just another finish picture.

Not FABULOUS pictures. :[ Sorry.

Now that I showed my headboard, I got a question!
What kind of color/pattern sheets/comforter/duvet should I go with!? Those red ones have GOT to go! The sheets are horrible. I wake up freezing with them on the floor because they slip off.......and I don't have a "topper" that's a full. So I'm looking for a new nice bed set.

Thanks for looking!
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Add buttons to Bench Cushion?! on: July 15, 2009 12:41:27 AM
Hello Amazing Crafters!
Well I am changing up my room a bit, and while looking around for beds and reading DIY bedroom articles I came across this. Making a headboard out of a bench cushion. Trying to save some bucks I LOVED this idea.

So my thought is to buy a tufted bench cushion and add some nice authentic buttons, right?
Well how in the world would I do that?
Would I just hand sew them on or what? Would they stay on correctly?
Unfortunately, BHG.com did not directly say how I'd do that.
And if you have an idea of where I could get an inexpensive bench cushion that'd help too!

Thanks much!  Grin
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Adding pockets? on: March 15, 2009 11:31:19 AM
Hey crafty crafters!
So I have a problem. I got these jeans that "had" cute jewels on the back, were them for a couple years and then...they started falling off day by day and they looked stupid. SO, I decided to start taking them off. Now, as you can see, they look stupid just flat with nothing. So my thought was adding POCKETS. But for some reason, I don't want them to be some average jean pockets. I want them to be different, but I can't get an idea. I just don't want them to be jean. Does that make sense? I feel like I need a picture though and can't find any. HELP!

Bored out of my mind today, somehow I had came across these pictures on flickr on accident and just had to make one...or a couple...

Pictures I saw.

And the ones I took.

I have many other "interesting?" pictures I have made...all by cell phone.
Believe it. Haha.
Thoughts? Changes? Anyway, thanks for looking. =]
