1  Re: Little Stuffies, Bunny, Cat, Bear... in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Missy-Martin on: January 24, 2005 05:56:45 PM
Here's my first stuffy:

I created him for an exchange on Nervousness.org. The project was to make a stuffy from this pattern, but to alter it somehow from the original (which seems natural to most craftsters). Once I had finished him, it totally seemed like he needed a matching knitted purse. ^_^ I'm so happy with him - the pattern was really great to work with. Thanks so much to sewing stars for posting it! I love all your sewn critters - especially the little dogs. I just love everything that has been posted on here so far, as well. Great job, everyone!

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone! ^_^

In response to greenie's question, the slippers are very comfy and pretty warm too (though I'd imagine that wool slippers, especially felted ones, would be warmer). The best thing about the pattern is how simple and quick it is. This was my first crochet project, and it went pretty smoothly. I'd recommend it, for sure.

Here is a pic of my second pair. These are a going to be a gift, and I stuck to the exact pattern this time. I like the results better (I now know what changes I would like to make to the first pair too - like make the toes shorter). I think this colour is more appealing too - I like the way the variagated yarn made more random patterns this time.

Here's a simple cellphone cozie that I made with ribbon yarn in garter stitch. I made a bunch of these as gifts - they're so quick to make! The pattern is taken from Knitting Pretty by Kris Percival.

4  Turkish Slippers in Crochet: Completed Projects by Missy-Martin on: October 27, 2004 05:08:05 AM
These slippers were made form a pattern in Erika Knight's Simple Crochet book. I just love her work - so stylish and creative. These slippers are very comfy and are a snap to make! They really are simple! ^_^ I made a few changes to these from the pattern, just to adjust the size. I used a rainbow variagated cotton yarn.

6  Zeeby's Bag - completed! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Missy-Martin on: September 18, 2004 07:14:26 PM
Here's my completed Zeeby's Bag! ^_^ It turned out pretty well, I think. It's a little on the flopsy side, and I was trying to decide whether to felt it just a bit or if I should just line it. I think I'm going to go with the lining option because I'm afraid that felting it will take away from the nice texture of the stitches (I love the merino wool's texture and sheen). Since it will be used for holding my knitting projects anyway, it doesn't need to be too sturdy, just secure enough to keep the needles from slipping through the holes in the stitches. I changed the colours to red and green because I'm just crazy about red.

7  My very first knitted hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Missy-Martin on: July 02, 2004 10:38:30 AM
Hi there, everyone!

This is my first knitted hat, created using the Roll-up Hat pattern from Kris Percival's Knitting Pretty  book (which is just awsome). The stripes were my own improvisation... just randomly spaced stripes of green and red. It was a very easy pattern and I think the results were pretty good. ^_^ I may also add some embroidery detail to the stripes using the duplicate stitch.
