61  Dishsoap bottle aprons in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Laamissa on: July 25, 2004 10:09:58 AM
My mother made these years ago when I was a wee one....


Back Tie:

I recently found a bunch of these in a box left over from a craft fair sale from
the early 80's and decided to tie one onto my "new age" dishsoap bottle.
They are cheesy but funny.  They are kinda an ode to the end of the 1950's repressed-aproned-housewive era.

Hope you like               ~M

63  Re: yeah, yeah, my beer didn't really need a sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by Laamissa on: July 14, 2004 12:35:18 PM

I was so inspired by your beer sweater Strangelittlemama that I came up with this crocheted version!
I used cotton yarns so it is washable...but im a little unsure about the fun fur going through the washing machine. (has anyone had any experience with this Huh)

If anyone is interested in the pattern I could try to explain it

64  Remote Control HoLsTeR...(with pattern) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Laamissa on: July 14, 2004 07:02:04 AM
I got fed up with searching for my remotes so I came up with this:

Here it is layed out flat:

I made up the pattern so feel free to use or improvise on!

Heres what I did (using 2 strands held together throughout for strength):
-ch 85, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in every ch until end of row
-ch 1 turn, hdc in every st for 9 rows
(you will end up with a long rectangle)
-fold up the ends to form 2 pockets
-single crochet through the 2 layers to connect
-sc through top of pockets for flair
-sew in ends
-hang over chair, headboard, or anywhere youd like

{{this pattern can be altered to fit wider or skinnier remotes by adding or subtracting a row or two from the long rectangle before sewing}}

I am not all that crazy about the colors I used but it is kinda just a prototype.
What do you guys think?

65  ~Wallets!!~..... in Crochet: Completed Projects by Laamissa on: July 08, 2004 08:30:44 PM
I have been experimenting with making up "patterns" on my own
Ok so I will admit it.......I am quite excited about these wallets!
The latest......

Inside the large one:

Inside the smaller one:

They have real button holes and everything.....plus this project gives you a chance to dig through that old button jar looking for finds! Wink
Hope you Like!
If anyone is interested in the pattern I could try to explain it
Happy Crocheting Everyone!            ~M

66  Re: Huge Crocheted Tote Bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by Laamissa on: July 08, 2004 07:51:54 PM
Here are two more I have made recently....
a purse sized and medium sized tote:

The blue/green/cream one was done with Red Heart Grande...2 strands held together throughout...this stuff is really really thick....(I would definately recommend using thicker yarns for this project...It makes these bags stiffer and stonger)  (the fuzzy cream stripe is actually centered on the bag but doesnt look like it in the photo  Wink)

the purple/blue one is done with Red Heart worsted weight yarn

....and of course cant forget the Lion Brand eye lash yarns! (Love to throw those into projects)

Thanks for peeking.......~M

67  Lip Balm Holder Keychain... in Crochet: Completed Projects by Laamissa on: July 05, 2004 05:21:47 PM
My latest project...
An Ode to the lip balm addict in us all...

These are so much fun to make!!!! Grin
I modified the pattern from this site.
I chained 3 instead of 2 at the beginning and single crocheted 11 instead of 10 throughout.  I skipped the ch 10 to attach the keyring and crocheted a snake ring keychain INTO the last few sc's.  I adjusted the height to my Burts Bees Lip Balm.

The greenish one to the far left has a stripe of fun fur but its hard to see in the pictures.
To my surprise it is still easy to twist the adjuster through the holder! Functional and practical....gotta love that!
Happy Crocheting All!    ~M

68  Flower Coaster in Crochet: Completed Projects by Laamissa on: June 23, 2004 05:56:53 AM
Sweaty Drink Season Is Here...

I did this all in 100% cotton yarns so it is completely machine washable

If anyone would like the pattern I would be more than happy to try to explain it...
Enjoy!  ~M

69  Re: Free Hanging Mirror "Mobiles" in Completed Projects by Laamissa on: June 19, 2004 06:01:09 AM
Here is my felt version too!
I couldnt get a shot of them hanging to capture what they truly look like.  I think something funky also may have happened back in playing with image size.

These are a little easier to "bump" into too...more so then their mirrored counterparts above!

These are fun but cannot stay outside.  They end up spinning too which is a cool effect.

What I did was:     cut all different colors of felt into varying sized circles.... then hot glued them with fishing line in b/w them....held them in place for a minute so they stayed spaced.....hang...done!

Getting the shapes to line up can be tricky with gluing so my advice would be have one trial shape to get the technique down b/c you have to act quickly with the hot glue (its not very forgiving if you want to readjust)

I 1st tried using tacky glue...and it was a MESS!  It took too long to dry and didnt hold up so the shapes "fell" out of their position on the line.
I looped over the top of these also for easy hanging.

They dont neccessarily have to be spaced and can be touching all the way up the line.
What do ya think?                 ~M

70  Felt and Fabric Journal... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Laamissa on: June 18, 2004 03:49:57 PM
I got this idea from something I saw in the store Anthropologie....
Except theirs was $40 bucks!!!!!! Mine was made from things I already have in my supply collection!
They put more of a laminated fabric on theirs and it was bigger in size (like single subject notebook sized)

Front closed


The butterfly fabric was originally curtains that my moms friend made out of bedsheets back in the 70's...so it has been reincarnated several times.

The "binding" is just ribbon put through two holes....its mushroom ribbon that I found in AC Moore a while back for $1!!! (its lion brand too!)
I cut a stack of yellow paper to size...punched 2 holes in it....cut felt to size..cut fabric to size...stiched it onto the front and back panels with zig zag stitch...punched two holes in the 2 pieces of felt.....stack everything then tied the ribbons through and Finick!

{[oh and I cut everything but the paper with pinking shears...it helps to disquise un-straight lines so you dont have to be perfect on this one...sometimes straight lines and I dont get along]}

It feels good to hold and is very light weight so it can be taken on the go with you.
Can be used for journal, photoalbum, memory book, sketch book....

Hope you like it....~M
