1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Super cute Bunnies!!! Free Pattern link too! on: January 27, 2009 11:22:23 AM
I made these bunnies for my kiddos Xmas stockings and I'm just getting around to posting them. This was one of the easiest patterns ever its the Best Bunny pattern from Lion Brand Here is the link http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60480A.html?noImages=
I just used yarn from my stash it was Caron brights or something. I didn't put the face on them and my daughter asked me yesterday when her bunny would be able to see lol. These are the first thing I have crocheted for my kids that they actually play with.  Most of the time I work really hard on something and they throw it down after two mins. They are 2 and 4 years old.

Here they are!

Bunny Butt

Thanks for looken!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dreadlock Yarn Scarf on: January 06, 2009 03:17:30 PM
My mom bought this yarn and its SO cool. Its fat in some places and skinny in others and reminded her of dreadlocks. I did a ton of swatches to try and find the right pattern for it. Most of the stitches I tryed were too stiff. The stitch I ended up using was the lovers knot stitch. It drapes and flows really nice. Thanks for looking!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Sewing amigurumi togeather....Help!!! on: January 06, 2009 03:03:21 PM
I was wonder if you guys had any tips for sewing my amigurumi togeather. Or a good link to a site with lots of pics or hints on basic amigurumi construction.  Mine looks a little sloppy. I have little kids that are hard on things. So far all my creations have stayed togeather ok but dont look so good where they connect.  Also I have a problem with when I weave my ends in the pop out later and I have to poke them back in. Is this a normal thing or should they stay hidden better? 
4  COOKING / Dessert / Princess Castle Cake....pic heavy on: December 28, 2008 06:08:52 PM
I made this cake for my daughters 4Th birthday. The turrets and princesses are from a kit I got off eBay. It took the hubby and I HOURS to make it. I was stressing hard core on the drive to the party I would die if it broke apart but it made the journey just fine. We ended up using 3 cake mixes and 4 recipes of buttercream icing. Oh and we totally cheated and used premade sugar roses. No matter how hard I try I just cant make my roses look good. I also didn't cover the cardboard cake boards with foil so we had a damp spot all around the cake from the oil in the icing I guess. That's why I put that edible glitter all around it. It was alot of work but totally worth it to see her face.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Slipknot and Sparrow Twirl Skirt Tshirt recon on: May 06, 2008 08:43:25 AM
I made these skirts with the pattern from the Generation T book. I stole my husbands holey slipknot shirt and dug thru the closet and found a matching dark red shirt.  I bought the green and white shirts for the other one so I had a nice new looking skirt for work. I used the sparrow from sublime stitchery to give it some funk. I totally love these and I want one for everyday. It is the most comfortable skirt I have ever had. I am headed off to the thrift store now to find more yummy shirts to cut up. I am gonna try to make a mini one for my 3 year old Mia. Thanks for looking guys!!!!

I made this cupcake cake for my daughters 3rd birthday! Its 12 chocolate and 12 white cupcakes. Its perfect because you dont have to mess with cutting the cake and you can make as many flavors as you want. My little girl flipped over it she is a cupcake fiend.

Thanks for looking!!!
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Nautical Quilt and Anchor applique pillows!! on: June 28, 2007 11:35:46 AM
I made this set for my baby Owen. His room is done in pirates and we kinda went with Ahoy! Its a Boy! stuff for his baby shower. It was my second real quilt I have made and the first time doing applique. Its the same anchor as on the fabric. I used a copy machine and enlarged a piece of the fabric. I just tied it when I finished the top. I could not afford to have it long arm quilted and I'm antsy and wanted it done right away. Thanks for looking!

The whole set!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone have the Swedish gnome pattern by Alan Dart on: February 03, 2007 07:53:51 AM
I am looking for the Swedish Yuletide gnome knitting pattern by Alan Dart. I found it on ebay but its from the UK and its like 20 bucks american. That blows cause it came from a free insert in the Simply Knitting magazine Issue 8. I will beg, buy or trade for this pattern. Has anyone made one of the gnomes? are they a booger or pretty easy. Thanks for the help.
