21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tennis balls rescue hardwood floor... on: October 17, 2004 10:53:56 AM
My BF and I moved into an apartment with nice wooden floors.  We realized very quickly that the chair legs and floor didnt get along very well (scratches and marks)  My BF actually came up with this...

All you have to do is pierce an X into one side of a tennis ball with a knife and shove it on the chair leg.
Very low cost and I think it looks kinda funky...we get a lot of reactions from them from visitors.
The balls actually make it easier to move the chairs around too, and they are quiter (bonus to the neighbors downstairs)

24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A Cat in A Hat... on: July 31, 2004 06:55:50 PM
Sometimes it is just so fun to torture kitty...

I made this litte "party hat" for my Grandmother's cat Bootsie, the hat has a tie on each side that goes around her head and is tied in a bow under her chin.  The pom pom is quite ridiculous!
She was actually a good sport about it too.....although from the picture she looks mighty pissed!
She walked around my family's party wearing the hat as everyone laughed at her.  I think it was the hit of the party.

25  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Felted Carrot on: July 28, 2004 05:35:14 PM
1 felted and 1 regular:

The pattern is from this site
Midnight knitter has an awesome website!  So thank You midnight knitter if your on craftster!!!!!

these are both done in 100% wool, this was my first felting experiment.....I wanted to make these as x-mas ornaments by threading a string through the top after felting.
Sooo fun to make at about an hour a piece too!!!

so do you like the felted or non felted version???
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dishsoap bottle aprons 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

28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Remote Control HoLsTeR...(with pattern) 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?
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / ~Wallets!!~..... 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

30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lip Balm Holder Keychain... 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
