1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Handmade Baby Sling! on: March 21, 2010 01:01:19 PM
That's such a cute sling! I want to make one for a friend of mine, but don't know what type of material to use. Also, I just read a scary message on one web site about not using a single layer of quilter's cotton because it could tear. But wouldn't a double layer work? What's yours made of? I love that it's reversible.

I didn't make mine (bought a Fluffy Seat), but it has handles and a pocket like you're describing. The pocket is just a big patch pocket sewn to the "wrong" side of the seat (the flipside of where the kid parks his butt). It's nice that it's on that side because my boy usually fills his seat with crumbs and that lets me wrap the seat up, crumbs and all, without making an extra mess for the restaurant. The handles are sewn on either edge of the pocket. As an added bonus, there's also a bunch of toy loops sewn on. Here's the exact one I have: http://www.floppyseat.com/product_descriptions/GeoDots.htm (and no, I don't get paid by the company!) I'd be interested to know how much more inexpensive it is to make rather than buy. I'd love a secondary one for when this one's in the washer!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Pets or roomates/siblings destroying your crafts. on: December 26, 2009 11:25:49 PM
My problems are both the dog and the toddler. I mostly crochet and they both are out to get whatever project I'm working on.
If I crochet during the day while the boy is watching TV, he'll absent-mindedly begin stroking the yarn. OK, not a problem really. But, then he begins letting his hand drift slowly toward the working end of the yarn until he's actually tugging on it. All this while keeping both eyes glued to Sesame Street, mind you. I once got up to answer the phone only to come back and find my work entirely missing. The hook was there, as was the yarn ball and a new pile of crinkled yarn in my son's lap. He had frogged half a beanie while watching Elmo!
So, I started doing my crochet at night when the boy is asleep. Bad move. Little puppykins keeps one paw firmly on my yarn so I have to wrestle it away from her with each stitch.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: hooded towels- NOW with tutorial! :D (lots of pics!!!) on: December 02, 2009 11:26:00 PM
Hi! I used your tute almost a year ago to make towels for my son and wanted to say a big THANK YOU for posting it! I came searching for it again to make more towels for my new nephew. A couple of photos of the ones I made a year ago:

I made the hood a little wider to accommodate the froggy face.

My son had this book and I had some orange felt. This is what happened.

And, the obligatory kid-using-craft-item shot.

The new ones I plan on making involve Elmo and a monkey. I'll post photos when they're done!

To expand on the food thoughts, what if you did a Hawaiian luau appetizer-style? Skewers of grilled chicken with teriyaki dipping sauce would work and definitely serve steamed rice and macaroni salad and a fruit salad. (Skipping any ideas of Spam here.) The cake could be a pineapple upside down cake and you could serve fruity (nonalcoholic) drinks in fake coconut cups and everyone could get a lei as they enter (let www.orientaltrading.com be your friend). I'd skip any ideas of coconut bras or grass skirts. Unless said grass skirt is being worn by a table.
Oh! And if you want to play that game about not saying the word "baby" or someone takes your clothespin, use the leis as the clothespins! Whoever has the most leis at the end of the party wins!
Get a couple of yards of Hawaiian shirt fabric and use that for a tablecloth. Make the invitations in the shape of a hibiscus flower or flip flop if she's having a girl, or a surfboard or sea turtle if it's a boy.
OK, I'm out of ideas for now. Maybe try to make the games with a Hawaiian twist like the aforementioned clothespin game. Not sure what else. I'll try again later.

Those are adorable! I'm definitely gonna check out the pattern. My little guy needs something to keep his noggin warm. It's the little details that make it though. The little stars and the edging make them nicer than a store-bought set. Good job!

I love Amigurumi World! I may have to buy that one and the Doris Chan book ... and SweaterBabe's book! I'm going to have a lot of projects soon.

MareMare: I'm jealous! I have an 8-month-old who doesn't really let me browse books much. I can't wait until he starts to read!

I just got a gift card to Border's and I'm looking for a new crochet book (already have Stitch N' Bitch). Any recommendations? I'm an average crocheter and would love to find some projects to wear or to make for my baby boy. Wouldn't mind a good amigurumi book either. I saw SweaterBabe's book, is that any good? Thanks for the help!

The round yarn cutter that goes around your neck? I dont think I've ever seen them. Does anyone have a picture/link to them??

Here's a link and a picture, I found it at Joanne's.
