1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / DIY crochet ear cushion for headphone on: April 30, 2013 10:09:19 AM
The foam ear cushions from my headset were falling apart.
It turned out these are not available separately.

So I've crocheted my own!
They are very easy to make.
I made them from organic cotton.

I wrote down what I did and posted the free tutorial on my blog:

I didn't leave him out yet, as he is not that weatherproof either. ( I might make a orange/black version out of stockings for halloween =^x^=)

He's going to welcome the family on christmas day. I thought it would be more original than a wreath.
No-one would destroy such a sweet kitty on christmas, now would they?

Really cute.
I like how you made it look delicate with such a heavy material.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Zity-Kitty, a design for Hoooked zpagetti on: August 24, 2009 04:53:13 AM

In a Dutch magazine "Handwerken Zonder Grenzen" there is a contest to make a design for a yarn called Hoooked zpagetti http://www.hoooked.nl/.
This yarn is a tube of jersey made of rest materials from the fabric and fashion industries.

Since I didn't have the yarn at hand I made my own version to get a material with similar properties. I cut up 2 t-shirts in two long bands of jersey yarn. With this I knitted my design in dropped stitches on needles sz 10.

And here's the result: a "Ztad-Kat" (="Zity-Kitty") It's a cozy for the small poles you find in a lot of Dutch towns. I did it in red and white because many cities, like my own, have those as their town-colours. And the candy stripe effect makes it an original decoration for the upcoming holidays!

(If you do like it you can vote for it here http://mijnhandwerken.nl/nieuw/?page_id=113 ! =^x^=)

Absolutely adorable.
And a blueberry cupcake hat is very boyish, I think =^x^=

If you use a multicolor yarn (like sock yarn) you can add different colors of sprinkles with little stitches.

Clever girl!

I've seen it with shoes, but I never thought you can apply the same to your clothes =^x^=
