1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Bunny (Pattern link added) on: September 24, 2007 12:53:01 PM
After finishing my granny square blanket, I had some leftover yarn.  I have wanted to try my hand at an amigurumi, so I found a pattern and gave it a shot.  Here is my bunny!

The original pattern had some errors, so I "fixed" them so it would work.  He is not perfect, but I love him!

Pattern added a few posts below!

I know everyone has done one of these... Here is my take on the Granny Square Blanket!  Red Heart Super Saver and a 5.5 mm hook...

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet bag on: August 29, 2007 05:52:12 PM
So, after a very long hiatus, I am back to Craftster.  YAY!

I have been teaching myself to crochet, but I get help from my cousin over the phone/email (she is in the US and I am in Canada).

This is actually my third FO, the other two I will also post soon.  The yarn is Patons SWS in Natural Blue, generously given to me by my cousin.  I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook.

This is the link to the pattern:

And here is my bag in all its glory.  It is pretty small (about the size of a can of pop).

Things I learned from this project:
1.  I learned how to do a circular object by crocheting back and forth.
2.  I learned how to do reverse half-double crochet.  That was challenging!
3.  Mistakes are a "design feature" Wink and to not get too upset by them.
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Are slippers clothing? Well, here they are anyway... on: February 09, 2006 06:41:46 PM
I wasn't too sure if this is the right forum for slippers, but I thought, well, slippers are clothing for feet, right? Wink

When my DH bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas, I asked him what he wanted me to make him.  He said "slippers".  Ummm... I am a very novice sewer, but I thought; "Well, what the heck. I'll give it a try".  This is what I came up with (no pattern either I might add)...

Outside is denim, inside is polar fleece.  Please ignore the crappy heel finishing; I had some sizing issues.

Action shot, coming right up!

He next wants me to make him a suit! Roll Eyes Cheesy
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First project: a little pouch on: February 09, 2006 06:07:38 PM
Hello!  This my first official post of something "crafty".  My lovely DH got me a wonderful sewing machine for Christmas, and I am just learning to use it.  After practicing a bit, I made this, a little pouch or coin purse. Yup, I meant that button to be like that; I thought it would look like it was flying.

Things I learned:
1. Do not stretch polar fleece when sewing, or you get wonky edges (note flap curve; was not meant to be curved!)
2. Polar fleece is a bit hard to work with, but doesn't fray
3. I love automatic buttonholers!

So what d'ya think?
