1  Re: hexagon afghan crochetalong in Crochetalongs by smileygirl on: February 19, 2009 12:16:42 PM
i have been working on this not knowing there was a CAL going on here!!! some i have you guys to motivate me!!  Cheesy  here is no progress so far...

i followed the pattern as it was written, but i did a round of double crochet around to tie them all together

do you guys think this would make a good baby blanket? the mom is a little non-conventional

the first pic shows the colors the truest

2  a matrix like house coat into a wearable jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by smileygirl on: April 12, 2008 08:21:29 AM
this was a house coat that i had to get when i saw it at the Salvation Army. it was $6 i think. it looked like a quilted coat that was from the Matrix movies. I forgot to take a before pic, but if you ever saw the movies, you know what it looked like. I cut it down to a cute length, slimmed it down, and added length to the sleeves.



and a closeup of the quinted design

I hope you guys like it, and as always comments welcome!!!

3  A pullover and a cardigan I made :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by smileygirl on: April 12, 2008 08:00:25 AM
this is a zip-up cardi that i made a while ago. I'm just now getting a chance to post it. i got the pattern from hip knits, but i altered the pattern so much, it's pretty much my own now.

and the side  (yes, this is in my backyard)

this is a pullover i made like 2 years ago. it's from the book hollywood knits

I hope you guys like them, and as always comments welcome!!!

4  the first cute shirt that i made from scratch!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smileygirl on: March 02, 2008 06:39:59 PM
this is the first shirt i have made from scratch without a pattern!!!

it has a hood and it fits perfectly. sorry i only have dressform pics because i can't take a good pic of myself to save my life.
do you guys think i would be about to sell this baby on etsy or ebay?
i wouldn't because i am so in love with this, but i just wanted to know
thanks guys

5  1st finished FO of 2008. a top down raglan in Knitting: Completed Projects by smileygirl on: January 13, 2008 06:07:02 PM
this is the first sweater that i have ever made for myself. i'm so proud of this baby. i used the pattern from the Peony Knits blog http://peonyknits.blogspot.com/2005/11/anthropologie-inspired-capelet-fo-and.html
i just made it into a sweater instead of a caplet. i did decreasing in the waist and increased for the hips. i used Loin Brand Homespun in Barrington (i had to buy this color because that's my FIL's name) i tool this pic after a full day of work, and it still held up well

someone else on craftster made something similar to this but with short sleeves. that's my little munchkin in the pic too. he was asking me to pose with his play-doh, and i was trying to ignore him long enough to get the picture.
comments and criticism welcome.
thank you

6  sleeping pants for my little one (img heavy!!) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by smileygirl on: May 16, 2007 09:29:53 AM
my son is always on his knees, and he goes through pants fairy quickly. since pants seem to be out of season, i whipped these up. they went pretty quickly and i'm proud of myself that i actually sewed something that actually fits!!!!  enough of my yapping, onto the pics.

and this is my little man wearing his new pants

thanks for looking and comments are welcome  Smiley

9  duct tape body double in Completed Projects by smileygirl on: April 16, 2006 11:35:00 AM
After weeks of looking at all the duct tape models all you crafty people did, I decided to do my own. I'm tired of knitting a sweater only to find out it's too big or too small. Please be kind  Cry it's my first finished post.

  Hope you all like. it took me about 2 hours to do and my husband helped my with the top of it. then i stuffed it with old clothes from my son. (this makes the form really heavy)
