1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sheep Earrings!! on: March 03, 2008 12:58:15 PM
I'm not sure if this is the right board to post this too, but I think it works.

Anyway, I am totally not a jewelry making kind of person, but I had these earrings that I bought for cheap and never ever wore:

And I had these knitting stitch markers with tiny sheep on them that I totally love, but hated them as stitch markers:

So I took the earring hooks of the earrings and the little sheepies off of the stitch markers:

And I made new earrings!

I totally love them. It's a simple stupid little project, but like I said, I have pretty much no experience in the craft, so I'm pretty proud of myself. Grin
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Casette Tape Duct Tape Wallet on: August 18, 2007 03:59:45 PM
It's been a while since I've done anything with Duct Tape, and I found my stash the other day, so I made this:

Just a Wallet, but I was pretty proud of my little Tape I made. It actually looks like a Tape. A Tape made out of Tape. heheh.

Inside are 2 pockets for my Library card and Debit Card and such, and a clear plastic window I made out of Clear packing Tape for my ID.

Thanks for reading, comments appreciated.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Molly's Headband on: July 02, 2007 02:23:15 PM

Pattern: Mollys Headband (PDF, you have to scroll down a bit to find the pattern)
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Malibu Blue (Just a little bit, not even half a skein)
Needles: US Size 6

I love this headband! I was a little skeptical while knitting it, but It turned out awesome. It was super fun to knit, just a little bit of lace, very easy. Ill definatly be making another. My only problem is that the i-cord ties are a bit too long. Instead of 12 inches, on my next one I might shorten them to about 6
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mmmm Donut ;) on: June 30, 2007 03:37:07 PM

My sister decided that she needed me to crochet her a donut. So I did. I used this pattern: http://crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32761

And instead of crocheting the frosting, I cut it out of felt, added some seed beads for frosting, and appliqued it onto the top.

The yarn for the Donut part was Caron Wintuk in Nutmeg. This is my new favorite yarn from Amigurumi. It's not as gnarly as some other acrylics, and I got a skein of it for about 1.20
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know how to make one of these? on: May 12, 2007 02:06:19 PM

I want to make a bag like this, but I have no Idea how. Instead of spending money on a pattern, I was wondering if anyone knew of a tutorial? Thanks.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Super Cute new Shoulder bag. on: May 10, 2007 07:40:49 PM

You like it? I do, I love it. It's my favorite bag I've made to date. I used this great tutorial:

I kinda wish I had put some interfacing in it to make it more sturdy, but I didn't have any on hand. For my next one, I'll use interfacing and some cute vintage fabric... I just have to find some. We don't have a very good fabric store around where I live.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Stan Marsh is the Boy in the Red Poof-Ball Hat. (Now with a modeled pic) on: April 26, 2007 10:17:18 AM

My brother has been buggin me and Bugging me to make him a hat like Stan Marsh from South Park, so I finally did.

I think it turned out perfect, and my brother loves it, too. Next, I wanna make a hat like Cartman's:

 I just have to figure out how to make his squashy little poof-ball that goes on the top of his hat.

EDITED TO ADD: When my brother got home from work I made him model it:
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Hat, with Pattern on: April 19, 2007 06:02:27 PM

(I was going to submit this pattern to Crochetme, but it looks as though they aren't taking submissions anymore, so, you guys get a sweet tutorial)
I make these hats when I need to whip something out quickly, you can make one in less than an hour. They are perfect for the snowboarder, or the person with the cold head in your life.

Yarn: Lionbrand Wool Ease Thick and Quick
Hook Size: US Size M

Round 1: Chain 2, make 6 Half Double Crochets (HDCs) into first chain, joing into the first HDC to Join.

NOTE: To Join, slip stitch into the first HCD of round, then chain 1

Round 2: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, and 2 HDC in each stitch around. Join.

Round 3: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, 1 in next, *2 in next st, 1 in next st* around, join.

Round 4: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, 1 in next 2, *2 in next st, 1 in next 2 sts* around, join.

Round 5: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, 1 in next 3, *2 in next st, 1 in next 3 sts*

After these rounds, you should have a circle that looks something like this:

HDC 7 more rounds.

Now, work a round of slip stitches in each stitch around (but do it VERY loosely, or your hat will be too tight to put on). I just did that because it gives a nice border to the bottom of your hat.

Slip stitch into first stitch of round. Fasten off, weave in ends.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bulky New Hat on: April 16, 2007 04:53:13 PM
I recently got crochet hooks in sizes L-P, I had all the smaller sizes, and a size Q, but nothing in between. So, I decided to make something with them. I couldn't get to my stash because it's in my Cedar Chest and that is all covered up for the painting going on in my house right now, so I had to use some crappy yarn I had lying around, but oh well. So, I made a hat, and here's a picture, modelled my my little sister's boyfriend:

I used Lionbrand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and a size N crochet hook.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Baby Blanket Pattern? on: April 14, 2007 04:14:21 PM
Okay, so I have about 4 skeins of Lionbrand Homespun, some new crochet hooks (sizes L-P, now I have the big ones!), and my Pastor's wife is expecting a baby. So, I'm looking for a baby afghan pattern that I can make with all my homespun. Any Ideas? I don't feel like making a buttload of GrannySquares and having to join them all together, so no pieced ones. Any ideas? Anyone?
