1  Hats hats and more hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by MissKerouac on: May 16, 2012 12:07:48 PM


So everyone I know is having babies so I've been busy like a bee. Here are some of the lovely little hats that have come out of the madness (as you can see most of the requests have been for little owl hats)

2  Dog Portrait Onesie in Needlework: Completed Projects by MissKerouac on: March 18, 2012 03:10:07 PM
My cousin is pregnant and the first thing people ask me for when they find out they are pregnant is an embroidered onesie (this started when I made 6 for my sister when she was pregnant with my niece).

It's always harder when you don't know the sex of the baby.
My cousin and her husband have 2 dogs; an American Bulldog and a Chocolate Lab.

This is my first attempt and embroidering any type of realistic picture (normally it's more cartoony type stuff) but it turned out pretty well. It did stretch out a little on the Bulldog face but very minor. Any of you that embroider on baby onesies know, it's friggin hard to get it not to pucker or pull lol. Also the wording and heart look kinda wonky in the picture but in person they are straight.

So here it is....

5  Matchbox Advent Calendar in Winter Holidays by MissKerouac on: November 08, 2011 03:09:17 PM
I know there has been a lot of them posted on here but I just love them! This was my first attempt at it and it was so easy. I made it out of matchboxes and some thin cardboard.

I ended up filling it with some buttons, little plastic glittery animal shapes, rubber ducky pushpins, chocolates, and other knick knacks and gave it to my sister.

I am in love with the scrapbooking paper I used as well. It was one of those things where I was finally ok with using a piece of it ( I only have 2 sheets of it) because I knew it would look good on this project.

36. Make a reusable Advent Calendar

Decided to make it for my sister so I could fill it with all sorts of things for her. I filled it with buttons, rubber ducky push pins, scrapbooking whimsies, and Werthers Chocolates

How did you attach the circles? I was given a bag of circles and some of them are already attached but I can't figure out what they did to fill in the gaps, It looks like stars.

I'm very bad at crochet talk but maybe this will make some sense, i'll try my hardest.

in each circle i ended up with 12 sets of 3 dc's. to make it squarish you ch 2, 2dc, then ch 1, 3dc in the same space. then ch 1 and move to the next space. 2dc, ch 1, move to the next space, 2dc, ch 1, move to the next space, 3 dc ch1 3 dc in the same space. and keep doing this. So the (3 dc, ch 1 3dc) become your corners.

sad drawing because my explanation is trying.
So when you are joining you join them where you would ch1.

Here is the pattern too

8  Copenhagen Pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by MissKerouac on: October 30, 2011 10:04:53 PM
I used the Stitch Nations Copenhagen Pillow pattern to make this throw. I used 7 different colours plus the off-white. I love the way it turned out, it's so happy and colourful. Not one circle is the same.

45. Make myself a blanket using Stitch Nation's Copenhagen Pillow pattern

DONE! Made it as just a throw so big enough to cuddle with. Not one circle is the same. I used 7 different colours and then the off-white for the borders. I think it turned out very cute Smiley

#50 on my list (I'm not doing them in order)

Crocheted owl baby hat - this is the first project that I've done where I'm starting to get the hang of how to get certain looks, so when I couldn't really understand part of the pattern I pulled from other hat patterns I've used to get it to look how I wanted to.
I'm still a beginner and this is finally the first project where I felt like I do actually have some knowledge in this big ole head of mine about what I'm doing. It was a nice feeling.  Smiley
