is this really your first pattern?  this looks great!

thankyou! yes, it's my first pattern... i've followed online tutorials and stuff but until recently I had mild tissue paper fear.... now I have made it through one reasonably successfully, i'm very excited! Smiley

So I finished my first sewing pattern! It's some dungarees for my nearly-one-year-old son. The pattern is Burda 9652 but I modified it a bit. I put snap fasteners along the inside leg seam for easy nappy changing. I did this by reinforcing bias binding with heavy interfacing and hammering the snaps in (yes, I still have all my fingers!), then sewing it along the edge of the inside leg on each side. I put buttons at the top instead of more snap fasteners as the pattern suggested. Also the pattern didn't actually say to applique on a scene from the heyday of 8 bit video gaming, that was my idea, as I am a bit of a geek.

the appliques close up. I handstitched them on and embroidered the tiny details, as I don't trust myself to accurately sew things this small with a machine...

This has to have been the Funnest Project to make Ever!

@jmdennisyourface : you've still got time to make a card if you're quick!! it took me a couple of days because i'm a bit slow, but i'm sure an experienced cross-stitcher could beat that...

@Jenicat : it's on black Aida fabric, glued unceremoniously into a piece of card.

thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Hello there. So, er, I made the girdertop love scene from Donkey Kong into a cross-stitch valentines card... thought people here might enjoy it! (and hopefully the intended recipient will)

One of my first forays into needlepoint so excuse the amateurishness!

thanks everyone! Smiley

blimey, a pattern... i dunno i didn't really write anything down and i have posted Cthulhu off to a friend now... but maybe if people are interested i will try and make another one and document the process a bit this time!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cthulhu on: March 20, 2007 12:34:50 PM
Almost in time for the 70th anniversary of H.P. Lovecraft's death... here's my attempt at a knitted cthulhu!

I'm sure there are loads of patterns out there on the net but i thought it would be more fun to make up my own. I made it for a friends kid out of some leftover cheap generic acrylic yarn, double knitting weight. It's all pretty sturdily sewn together and machine washable so hopefully it'll stand up to being battered by children. I cheated a bit by cutting the claws out of felt and sewing them on - i didn't think you could really knit claws that looked sharp and threatening enough! The wings have got a crochet trim round the bottom in an attempt to give them a sort of webbed effect, and he has a silly pointy head just for the hell of it.
Hope you enjoyed looking and weren't too scared.

thanks very much!

the pattern is on magknits:

i only changed the chart for the bottom part of the hat - i did chart 2 the same as theirs. my snowflakey chart was just scribbled on some graph paper but i could post it if you like!

I couldn't resist having a go at this hat as I had half a skein of Kureyon gathering dust in the drawer. The other yarn is some kind of alpaca stuff i found, which is lovely and soft. I wasn't keen on their pattern though so i made something up that vaguely resembled snowflakes. Great fun to make though and reeeeally warm - the stranding and the 100% wool does the job for keeping the whistling wintry winds away! Definitely a good one to try for the cold-eared craftster reader.
