1  Mini crochet coin purse. in Crochet: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: August 21, 2009 06:21:42 AM
My newest little creations - mini crochet coin purses.

I found some crochet coin purses with the cute little metal frames online and I had to give it a go. The hardest part was finding a decent price on the purse frames which can be outrageous even for little tiny ones like this.

After that I just had to figure out how to make the darn thing. But after about 4 hours of trial and error (and a unraveling too fat or too skinny purses) I figured it out. And I've been making them like crazy in lots of fun and fabulous bright color combinations.

The purse frame is only 5 cm wide, but opens much wider to get fingers in to dig out change. I've also ordered 8 cm frames, but they are coming all the way from Hong Kong so I'm having to wait a wee bit.

Anyway, enough rambling - what do you think?

2  Funky Spunky Mary Janes (Big Pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: November 09, 2006 02:59:22 PM
I think those crochet mary jane slippers are sooo cute. So I decided to test out some of my own, but I put a teeny twist on them: fuzzy wuzzy was a slipper.

I crocheted these using regular black and then added in some fun fur in this gorgeous electric blue color. They are so fuzzy and comfy on the inside. It's love.

I made a little detachable flower pin to go on the side just as some fun decorations, also.

3  Shell Dangle Purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: July 31, 2006 03:58:51 PM
I found a purse like this down in Galveston while I was visiting, only it was crocheted with hemp and dyed. It was so cute and summery, but since summer is more than half over I decided to try one with yarn in a more autumn friendly color and this is how it turned out.

What do you think?

I would've put more dangles on it but only 15 dangles cost $3.99, so I spaced them out a bit and jazzed them up with some seed beads. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. A bit of a different take on the hobo purses with all the sequins.

And if anyone is wondering, the inside is lined with white and black polka-dots and it closes with a black metallic snap.

Here's two more that I made. Both are cupcake themed.

The lining of both is done in the same fabric.

5  A couple of purses. in Crochet: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: July 21, 2006 05:54:16 AM
Here are two purses I made recently.

Asian Inspired:


The whale one is my favorite right now. I think it if doesn't sell I'm defintely going to keep it for myself and parade it around because I'm just so in love with the little whale and the colors. Grin

6  Ice Cream! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: July 15, 2006 02:53:50 PM
Here is my take at the little cupcake containers I saw posted here yesterday.

Full thing. He is about 7in. tall not counting the swirlie at the top.

Close-up of pom poms. There are also some clear beads on the white for some sparkle.

Open up the top and you have a little container. I lined it with some fabric I had around the house so it wasn't just the white plastic of the yogurt container.

What do you think?

7  Star Wars Blanket & Embroidered Pillow. in Crochet: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: July 05, 2006 06:00:49 PM
Hi all!

I've been working on this blanket for about a month and just finally finished it tonight. It's made out of 20 TIE Interceptor granny squares.

Close-up of one square.

And as a break somewhere in the middle of making the blanket I stumbled across the posts of Star Wars embroidery around here and knew I had to make one to go with the blanket, except I couldn't find anything to transfer the pattern with onto dark fabrics, so I drew it on freehand with white eyeliner and then did my best. It's my first embroidery attempt and I do not claim to be an artist, but I still really like how it turned out. It doesn't hurt that the pillow case is soft jersey. I may or may not have been sleeping on it since I've made it.   Wink

The solar panels on the wings are done in black so you can't really seem them, but sure can feel them.

Both of these are going to my boyfriend when he comes to visit me this Friday. Am really excited about showing them to him. Grin

Comments and criticism are greatly welcome!  Smiley

8  Amigurumi Draco Malfoy (img heavy). in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by endlessxhorizon on: June 29, 2006 02:48:55 PM

I whipped up Draco last night when I got home from work. He's my second amigurumi ever, my first being a little blue dragon that's sitting on my desk. I'm much more proud of Draco, though, so I had to show him off.

Here he is with cloak up. It was completely accidental that the hood fit. I was just winging it and hoping for the best!

And finally, here he is without his cloak and scarf, which are obviously completely removable.

What do you think? I'm going to start a Hermione tonight because my boyfriend and I have an inside joke with the two of them as a couple and us being them (though neither of us really look like Draco and Hermione, oh well, who said it had to make sense?). So he'll get Hermione, and I'm keeping Draco. I'm sure a Harry will shortly follow after her, because these guys are just so addicting to make.
