1  Re: Linguine bunnybuns... From outer space! *With pattern* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Aneesah on: May 09, 2010 04:35:28 AM
Thanks a bunch for the pattern, it's wonderful! Here's my bunny, done yesterday, in self-striping yarn. (It seems to give him a mismatched, raggedy look, but let's pretend it's endearing, yes?)

Oh, I also gave him a fluffy pompom tail, hehe.

Woohoo, thank God I found this tutorial, because I desperately needed a clutch for my grad dinner and made this at the 11th hour:

I made the bottom round instead of pointy, and attached a bracelet thing so I won't accidentally drop the bag every 5 seconds. *butterfingers* ^^;

3  Re: Inga's Häkelbeutel ~ German Granny Square Bag CAL in Crochetalongs by Aneesah on: August 05, 2008 08:27:52 AM
Hey everybody. Smiley I crocheted this bag as well, only with some modifications due to... er, my lack of yarn. I've never done granny squares before, but it turned out to be a great TV-watching project. XD Because I used cotton twine, the squares turned out big so I did only 2 rounds per square. Wink And I used wooden handles instead of crocheting them.

(More info on the Flickr page)

It's currently unlined, although I'm pretty sure I'll have to line it, considering the size of the holes. I thought of using some denim from a cut-up pair of jeans, but that might just add more weight to this already heavyish bag... =X

4  Crocheted wire watch strap in Beads: Completed Projects by Aneesah on: July 16, 2008 09:56:31 PM
A while ago I've never even heard of crocheting with beads (until I came across crafty_dame's necklaces), let alone crocheting wire with beads. Lips sealed But when I had to make a new watch strap, I decided to try this technique and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Smiley (I don't make/wear jewelry, but I make/wear watch straps. Haha.)

A lot of it was trial and error, eg. the length, amount/density of beads, what kinda stitches/how to crochet, fastener, uh ... everything, basically. Grin The strap isn't too rough on the skin, although it feels a little wire-y still. Tongue But I like how it looks and am glad I actually have a wearable watch now. Cheesy (Lost one watch, and the other's strap was falling apart...)

5  Rainbowy Zipper Pencil Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Aneesah on: March 09, 2008 09:49:48 PM
So this isn't the most original idea ever, making a case out of just zippers, but I happen to have an obsession with colourful rainbowy things, and I needed a new pencil case, so here:

I sewed on white cotton tape in between each zipper before sewing them together, 'cause I think borders look nice. Smiley A couple of things I would change if I did this again would be:

  • Use an even number of zippers. Because I alternated the zipper directions, but forgot that if there was an odd number of it, there'll be two zippers in the same direction next to each other. Undecided (Red and blue in this case. [pun not intended])
  • Sew the end seams a little more neatly.  Lips sealed (I broke a couple of needles 'cause they hit the zipper ends.  Tongue Should've bought slightly longer zippers so I could sew through the part before the metal zipper end, and have the case still fit my pens.)
  • Add a hanging loop/strap at one end so I can hold on to the case without grabbing it in the middle. No big deal though, I could add a keychain or something on any one of the seven zippers Cheesy

Total cost for the whole case: RM1.60, which is about US$0.50. Grin (Zippers were RM0.20 each, and the white tape came in an RM1 roll, and I only used a little bit of it.)

6  Colourful felt wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Aneesah on: December 18, 2007 02:38:03 AM

My hand-stitching is ter-ri-ble, and the fact that I didn't have any green/blue/orange thread kinda added to that messy look. Embarrassed I like the kiddie designs and the functionality of the wallet, though. Smiley

The wallet closes with two buttons and elastic nylon thread. (The thread is secured to the "cloud" button. Cheesy )

7  Re: Plus Size Designers need common sense! Sleeves... in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by Aneesah on: August 26, 2007 05:04:51 AM
Hehe, I like the idea of fake layers too! It'll be somewhat like this, right?

(Just an old t-shirt I reconned from three different tops.)

And maybe the designers planned on the wearer having something underneath, hence the short sleeves and deep v-neck? (...Or not. ^^)

8  Jacket from pants (Inspired by Miss American Pie's) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Aneesah on: August 23, 2007 07:21:16 AM
Here's the original thread with the totally cute jacket-from-skirt made by Miss American Pie. I made mine from an old pair of pants (sorry no before picture  Undecided ), lots of seam ripping involved, and I removed the belt loops too 'cause I didn't like 'em, (and the waistband doesn't go around the back of the jacket anyway), and because of the back pocket disaster (look below), I didn't want to use the back of the pants for the back of the jacket.

But ... there wasn't enough fabric from the pants' legs, so ... I had to use the butt of the pants anyway, so I sewed it on again after patiently picking it off. Embarrassed

Sorry for this not being a proper completed project.  Undecided I really need opinions on the back pocket. I wanna remove the other pocket as well, but the obvious pocket silhouette... Angry Can I like, bleach it or something, or hide it...? Sad The armpit needs hemming too, I'll figure it out when I get more thread. (Don't you hate running out of thread? Roll Eyes )


Thanks for the replies! I sewed the pocket back on, finished the armpit hems and also fringed the bottom edge. (Though I'll probably make the back edge more even and fringe some more.)

Thanks a bunch, soulcrochet! Smiley I didn't have any crochet cotton, so I used acrylic yarn and made this:

I had to use fabric for the inside bits, and a real button for the button, and experimented with some different stitches, but I still like it. Grin
