2  Little boy beanie and booties in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tia Cherry on: May 20, 2009 03:50:15 PM
I am very new to crochet but have finished these 2 projects from Warm and Fuzzy Baby on Etsy and they were so easy and cool to do!

This is the beanie, pretty happy with it but seems a bit holey... as shown in 2nd pic

Lol he loves it and wears it everywhere, but was wondering if anyone knows how id change the holes... would it be my choice of yarn?

This is one of the completed booties, im so happy i finished them Smiley

But have a question re the side, as i would finish a round you could see where, does anyone know what im doing wrong to make this raised area?

It isnt very recognisable but I can see it lol. And want to make a pair for a friend expecting next month but want to see if i can fix that before i make some..

Thanks for looking Cheesy Comments or tips welcomed...

3  Magnetic bag clasp, how to? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Tia Cherry on: February 13, 2009 12:57:01 AM
I have some new magnetic clasps and i have nooo idea how to use them. I ususally use the one you slot into the material then bend the bits over. But these new ones are different. They are in plastic and i have no clue how to attach them to the fabric without just sewing the plastic to the material which will look awful.

Please any help would be so wonderful, i brought a heap of these before i realised i have no idea how to attach them. Wink

4  First go at CP (warm heated) soap... in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Tia Cherry on: October 15, 2008 03:51:53 PM
Ok i thought i had ruined my soap. I used 'ohhappyday''s tute and a recipe i found on an Aussie site (meant i knew what things i could find here and measurments). I did it all up and measured very carefully.

All went good, lol i even got to trace which i was excited to see and know i knew what it was Wink. Poured it into my mold (need to work on lining it a bit neater i think!) put into the oven on really low for a few hours turned it off and left it in there overnight. Lol chasing anyone who went near the over "DONT OPEN THE OVEN, I DONT CARE YOU WANT TO COOK DINNER!!" haha.  Cheesy But when i had a look with the oven light on i was totally down, it was all crusty and gritty on the top, nothing like other yummy soap tops i have seen on here. I left it in there and was all upset.

Got up this morning and thought ok, ill get it out and cut it up, if its saveable ill try to rebatch it. But i cut it and the only yuck bit was the very top. I think the oven may have been a little warm. But it worked Cheesy Cheesy I cut it up and trimmed the top and it works amazingly. (i used the end off cut cause i didnt want to ruin a nice square bit haha) I dont even need to moisturise my hands after washing them now. Gosh what a difference handmade soap makes. I didnt realise it would be so good. I did it cause i thought it would be fun, lol and for the soap, but was unsure how nice a soap i made myself would turn out. haha lets just say i am a little chuffed with myself today Wink hehe.

This is the top, Not sure if you can see the grittiness of the top or not. But you can see its not really smooth.

This is the finished product Cheesy

Lol and one of my son posing with the soap, haha he was so excited mummy acutally made real soap Tongue

If anyone has any ideas why my soap went crusty on top id love to know. Im thinking it was the oven temp. Next time i think ill just wait the month to use it... haha if i can.

Thanks again to OhHappyDay for the tute!! Your a gem!!  Kiss

5  Did i felt this or just fluff up and ruin an old jumper i brought?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Tia Cherry on: May 04, 2008 08:04:54 PM

I did it by hand and even tho was hard was fun. Only thing is i dont know if i have acutally achieved a felted finish?? Or just fluffed up the jumper haha.

This is the end result...

Sorry the pics arent the best but just did them quickly.

10  Summer dress with fitted bodice in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Tia Cherry on: October 12, 2006 03:09:15 PM
Here is a summer dress i made yesterday. lol it was very hot here and i was sweating but i finished it... And i have nooo idea how u other sewers take such good pics.. i took these myself.. ohh it was not an easy task. hehe hope u like.

And here is the back, i have no idea what i did wrong but the zipper bends out Sad so annoying. But i think i pulled the material too tight when putting it in...

And here it is with a belt.. i think it looks cute with the belt. The material had a pattern along the side.. so i had to try get it to line up at the bust.. it didnt.. lol maybe i will steer clear of that next time... oh well on the my next project Wink hehe

Thanks for looking
Tia  Kiss
