I think if you make the body the same as you did before but maybe a semi-circle at the front of one point and then 4 windows, fold the piece in half, stuff it and sew it up th ebelly then add the wheels? here's a crappy paint picture to help explain more b/c I'm not sure if you can understand what I was saying...

hope that helps a little

5  trouble with a purse! (pic. heavy!) in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by the_talk on: April 23, 2006 07:08:31 PM
so I'm attempting to make the purse from Family Circle Easy Crochet. The purse is the Summer Shopper Tote.

 I have the base done but now it says (for the sides) to

mark out the center...done

then, working across one side of the bottom ch3, 51 sc evenly along on side of bottom. Ch 3, turn. Work even in 51 dc for 7 rows more. (to rewind it said to fasten off after making the bottom and sides.)

This is what my side looks like from the turning chains

how is the worl do I crochet in this mess? I have no idea where to start. So I tried making a flat piece but somehow it ended up like this (only 5 rows through)

Thanks in advance for any help!!

6  finished hat turned out wonky(now w/pic) in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by the_talk on: March 05, 2006 07:47:43 PM
So I made a hat and the top turned out really wonky, which bummed me out. Thank you to Homerof2, who helped me get started. So my hat ended up with a huge point at the top! I would post a picture but the computer won't connect to the camera...so that's to come.

I used the pattern http://www.royalyarns.com/fp/TLC-Ccht/TLC-LW1379.pdf

I started getting confused on
Next Row: ch 3, skip first sc, [dc in next st, ch 1, skip next st, dc in nect st] 12 times: [yo and draw up a tp in next st, yo and drawn through 2 lps] twice yo and draw through all 3 lps on hook-dctog made--Don't under stand exactly what to do here, even though it explains it. Mind you I'm a self taught crocheter and have noone to help or show me so I often have a ton of questions.
Next Row: ch 1 [sc2tog] 9 times, sc in last st; turn
Next Row: Ch1, [sc2tog], 5 times-5 sts, fasten off
^--what does it mean by 5 sts(stitches)? I don't where to put those 5 sts or what?

So somehow I think I got lost in the pattern and decided to wing it and ended up with a big nipple ont he top of my hat! I'll post pictures a.s.a.p.

Thanks for the help!

my head is tilted so it looks like it's not on all the way, but it is!

7  dress for prom in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by the_talk on: January 03, 2006 01:18:29 PM
So I have decided I would like to make my own dress for prom considering the boy wants me to wear a long one and they are nearly impossible for me to find.

I have a few questions first and pictures as to what I would like top wise but am struggeling with the bottom (suggestions are welcome!!)

I want the back to be low like this

but instead of spaghetti straps I would like the front and straps to be like this dress of Beyonce's

I want the gold piping to go to the small of the back and have a gold line across the shoulder blades to keep the straps in place...I was thinking of doing a deep purple with gold piping.

my next problem is the fact that I have a small chest(barely A) and bigger hips(size 29-32inches) and a larger behind. Although I'm very proud of my assets but they do cause dress trouble (here's a link to a picture...
it's hard to really grasp it, but I'm sure you understand)

I don't have something to hang the dress on besides a hanger..is that ok?
Is sewing a dress hard?
What is the best fabric to use (I was thinking a satin like fabric so it has some shine)?
does anybody have directions/tutorials on how to start off making a dress?
And last, does anyone have a pattern that is somewhat similar to this?
Would it be better to go to a T length cut and if so would the style I want still look ok?
Can you put something in the chest area so you don't have to wear a bra, or would the gold piping cover it up enough where it wouldn't show?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! It means a lot!
