21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My very first crochet project!! on: June 25, 2007 11:03:56 PM
So I've been getting into crocheting and have been sucking at it since the start. I found a pattern for a small beanie here on craftster and decided that it would be a simple first project.

It wasn't.

I eventually got it and here is the result! (ignore the crappy picture)

My Blythe, Addison, is the recipient of my very first project and I think she loves it!
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / *1 hdc, inc 1* (18) - Huh? on: June 23, 2007 03:16:49 PM
Hey guys I need a lil help. I'm trying to make a beanie cap that I found on here for my Blythe but I'm having a little trouble understanding the pattern.

Pattern - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=105650.0

I understand it up to the increases, ie. *1 hdc, inc 1* (18) Can someone explain to me how I would do these increases? Thank you SO much in advance!

I know round 4 was completed not long ago, but I just wanted to put it out there that someone was interested! I'm going to be the proud new mommy of a Blythe in a couple of days and was anxious to swap with the other Blythe/Pullip lovers out there. So what do you say guys?
24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Sanrio Flip Calendar on: June 19, 2007 06:16:16 PM
So I never know what day it is since I'm not in school...so I made myself a calendar.

Its so cute, isn't it? A few Sanrio dingbats, some numbers and Adobe Illustrator and I'm now clued into the date. I hope you enjoy!
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Magic Adjustable Ring tute? on: June 17, 2007 03:03:14 PM
Hey guys I'm new to amigurumi and I think if I could just make the Magic Adjustable Ring I can finally make some! But the thing is I can't figure it out for the life of me! I found a few tutorials but they don't help me. Plus one I found has you doing a dc when most of the patterns I find call for a sc. I tried it with a sc but it wouldn't work. Can anyone help me! It would be MUCH appreciated!

PS- I used this: http://www.crochetme.com/amigurumi-double-ring

26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink and Brown Polka Dots on: June 10, 2007 03:34:29 PM
I made this bag a while ago but I thought I'd share it anyways. I was inspired by a bag I saw here on Craftster, it was so cute I just had to have it. So I made one. In my favorite colors and pattern. After hours of yelling and cursing at the bias tape... I got this. I hope you enjoy!

27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dressform Pin Cushion on: June 10, 2007 12:21:59 PM
I always wanted a dress form for my desk and I came across this pattern....After about 30 min and a minor medical emergency (Make sure you prep your mom who is helping on the DANGER of bubbling hot glue....) I got this. I made this one for a friend of mine and just had to show you all. I hope you like it!

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / HK asks Who's Your Bunny? on: June 01, 2007 09:10:04 PM
So I was watching The Girls Next Door (show about Hugh Hefner and his gfs-for those who don't know) and Bridget was wearing the CUTEST Hello Kitty shirt that I just had to have. Well I couldn't afford the almost $30 for it...so whats the next best thing? Make a purse!!

I traced the tshirt in Adobe Illustrator to get the Hello Kitty image and then I used the printing onto muslin technique I found on Craftster and used an applique stitch to soften the edges. I used a "bra clasp" as a closure. I do plan on making me a tshirt eventually though....

I hope you enjoy!!
29  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Revamped Bookcase...Medical Style on: May 22, 2007 02:23:30 PM
So I was on the hunt at Goodwill when I came across this bookcase for 3 bucks. Knowing what a shelf/container freak I am I couldn't pass it up. I also found a PDR (physicans desk reference for those who don't know....it tells you about medications) from like '81 and the pages were sufficiently aged. A mass of ModgePodge later and voila!

                 Full Shelf                                                        Close up

I'm completely in love with my shelves! Lets just hope I don't need the lowdown on any meds anytime soon!
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cell Cozy/ID card holder/Key holder on: August 31, 2006 10:03:52 PM
So I was getting a new Razr phone, and due to my track record with dropping phones I decided to made a cozy for it. If you are or have been a college student you know that your student ID card and your room keys are the two most important things you must have everyday if you plan on doing anything at all on campus. So instead of having to hunt down all my stuff I decided to incorporate the ideas into my cell cozy...and voila!

Closed. The front was too bland so I machine appliqued a star on the front using the inside fabric.

Open. I used velcro to close it.

Side view. After I got my phone it fit, but it was a tight fit so I took some scrap and added it to the sides to make it more roomy inside.

I added two layers of white fleece interfacing to give it some extra padding for my many bouts of clumsiness.

The pattern for this was off the top of my head and the dimensions are based on the phone itself. I hope you enjoy!
