11  Espidrille Recon in Shoes: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: May 05, 2009 10:06:01 AM
I love me espidrille's but hate tying the straps around my ankle so after a real good look I dove in and removed the straps replacing them with elastic.

This picture show one completed and one still to do. As you can see the later goes around the ankle and ties in the back which is really annoying.

This is the elastic pulled through were the strap was.

Reusing one of the straps I made a cover for the elastic. This slipped on one side and then I overlapped the ends of the elastic and sewed them together, then adjusted the fabric to cover.

They fit great now I can were them more often.

12  Fushia Python Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: February 02, 2009 10:32:09 AM
Used McCalls Stitch 'n Save view B. DD picked the fabric just a simple woven in fushia python print. It's a little big but that's a good thing. The skirt is nice a full and the pockets are deep enough for small toys. With a couple interuptions it took me four hours to make so I will definitly be making more, light weight denim would be great for this.

Thank you so much for sharing this as soon I saw it I knew this was going to be one of my mom's christmas gifts so I did one of my DD. The intructions were easy to understand and it only took me 45 minutes start to finish.
I even discovered I had the same frame as you. Smiley

14  First Felted soap in Felting: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: December 05, 2008 10:07:18 AM
Here my six year old DD's first attempt at felting soap. It's a little thick in one area but it is holding together nicely, there is enough wool left over to make another one. She is happy with it and that's all that matters  Smiley

Ten years ago my Grandmother gave me a couple of bell ornaments that she made from beads along with the instructions on how to make them.

 Of course being an idot I missplaced the instructions and now that she is gone I want to make some for family.
I remember using thread or dental floss, small pearl and faceted beads.
If anyone can help me my family would be most greatful

16  My Tetris Afghan Finaly Done!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: April 13, 2007 04:21:26 PM
I have been participating in a Tetris Crochet Along over at www.crochetville.org and I finished it today. DD was occupied by my mom so I did it as fast as I could and am very pleased. I love it but it will be a while before I make a pieced afghan again. Smiley Smiley

17  Cupcake Critters on a stick in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: April 04, 2007 01:18:29 PM
I made a few of Kristie's Cupcake Critters (pattern at www.crochetville.org) and had a light bulb moment. Twelve inch lolly sticks and some hot glue and I had Lollypops.
My DD is really into puppets right now so these will be a nice treat for her Easter basket.

18  2x Smocked women top into a little girl dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by goldencrafter on: February 10, 2007 08:20:36 PM
I have had this top in my closet for a while I really liked it but it didn't look so great on me. After thinking about it I decided that I would turn it into a dress for my DD.
All I had to do was remove the strap ties and sew a new seam three inches from the original seam. Cut off the excess fabric, then lastly put the ties back on. I double stitched the seam just to be sure the smocking didn't come undone.

Before with the ties removed;

19  variation on Orange you glad in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by goldencrafter on: February 09, 2007 12:58:15 PM
Here is my newest bag. I followed the Orange You Glad pattern in aran and green then used one of the flower pin patterns on the front stitching the stem and leaf. It may be hard to see but the bottom is green so it looks like the flower is coming out of the ground.

It is lined with simple brown broadcloth.

After it was done I realized it needed a closure of some kind but all my large snaps have been used so I used some size 10 cotton thread, made a loop and placed a rose shaped shank button on the back of the purse.

Now I need go somewhere to show it off. Cheesy

20  Child sized Frou Frou can it be done?YES in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by goldencrafter on: February 03, 2007 08:44:16 PM
Does anyone know how to make an adult sweater child sized?
My daughter is need of a new sweater size 4/5 and she really likes the Frou Frou I am making for myself, it would be great if I could make her one too.

Her finshed chest/bust would need to be 25 inches
Sleeve length would need to be 12 inches

This is probably not possible but I thought it would be fun to try.
Thanks for the help.
Well here it is a mini Frou Frou. My daughter loves it she now has something "grown up" to wear.
All I had to do was take the largest finished bust size and divide it in half that gave me the proper finished measurement I needed. Then I divided the begging 110 chain and went from there. I had to play around with the increases and decreases after all a four year old doesn't have a figure so there wasn't much to do. The collar could use some more increases but it works fine. As for the arms I just chained until it was one inch shorter than her actual arm length.
I didn't like how the trim come out some I made one as I went along, which was fine because DD wanted it to be "sweet and ruffly" so she got just that.
Even though it's not perfect I still like and so does she and that's all that really matters. One good thing though as I was doing this I realized that the one I am making for myself is going to be to small so I need to frog before I get more yarn to finish it.
