1  Some recent recipes! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: May 02, 2009 12:10:52 PM
I love the color that the honey turned the soap during curing!

Flax, orange, cinn and juniper!

Rosemary, mint and green clay. I need to practice my swirling and be more adventurous.

2  My first two sweaters! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: October 05, 2008 07:21:06 PM
So this one is a free pattern from Drops Design. I used Red Heart Super Saver since it was my first and I didn't want to make a big investment. I'm pleased with how it came out! Husband thought I needed a pipe in the photo... LOL

This was before I had sewn the other sleeve on. hehe

This is the Lion Brand Country Car Coat. I used the Thick N Quick when it came on sale at michaels at about half price. YAY!!! I paid for this pattern, which honestly kind of sucked and wasn't worth the 4 bucks. It was a simple pattern, SUPER fast and easy to work up, but there were a lot of corrections and some unclear places in it. I think they have a VERY VERY similar pattern on there for free that doesn't look as bulky. It's called something-white I think.

Excuse the ends.  Wink

I think I made the Small, and it's VERY big and bulky. The pattern flares out at the hips, which is unfortunate b/c I don't need to accentuate my hips. LOL... If I ever work the pattern again, I will make the back all the same width (Same width as the top).

3  Just finished a new recipe - brown sugar soap! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: July 06, 2008 08:32:31 PM
It stayed pretty grainy but not as grainy as I was hoping (so as to exfoliate like sand). Anyone else make brown sugar soap?

4  First afghan! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: November 24, 2007 08:59:34 PM
One edge is a little crooked because I always start out tight and loosen up over time!

This is a modified pattern off the Lion site (the "Little V Stitch Blanket). But *duh* I didn't realize that doubling the height and width is actually creating a blanket that is FOUR times as large! So it's rectangle instead, just right for a throw! This is a gift for my gramma.  Smiley

This is done in cream Cotton Ease. I love picot edging! I can't wait to do something else with picot.

5  Lardy Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Snyderwagon on: September 02, 2007 11:35:34 AM
I got the name when I was finding "junk" to put in it to show the shape. Ha

I freehand pretty much everything, but in a nutshell: this is basically a spiral crocheted from two strands of teal Sugar & Cream and one strand of suede (H hook). Single crochet on the bottom, dc in the middle - bulge it out! - then sc for the top edge and the handle. Took a couple hours at the most! (plus more time for sewing the lining.)

6  My first patterened sewing project in YEARS in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Snyderwagon on: August 26, 2007 07:56:49 AM
Okay, I bought this adorable pattern off etsy: Circa 1960!

Well 1960's size 12 is more like a size 6 today, so I had to add several inches in various places throughout the pattern. (for example, I had to add eight inches to the hips!)

Here's a progress pic: the whole top done but one sleeve!

I was determined to follow the instructions carefully, but they weren't very descriptive. For example, I didn't really understand the backing on the inside of the neck, so I did my own and bonded it with fusible web to make the top lay nice.

Here's the finished piece, I got up early to sew this morning! No head in the pic because it was early and I looked like death. I think all in all it was only about 2 hours of sewing.

I was also a little disappointed with JoAnne's fabric selection, so I got this grey ... well i shortened the skirt quite a bit and left off the pockets because the longer version looked exactly like something a nun would wear.  Grin But this knit jersey stuff was great because I can put it on over my head and I didn't have to put a zipper in. YAY

Once I find a cute plastic buckle, I plan to make a thick belt.

8  Nacho Libre! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: August 12, 2007 04:23:04 PM
My Husband saw this pattern and bought it for me and pleaded that I make him one. So I did! It's Nacho Libre!

Crummy webcam pic

I plan to make these for my nephews also.  Grin

Here's Owly's original:

PS. I haven't done amigurumi before, and I learned not to use Caron simply soft yarn. It's too stretchy as you can see from the big holes on the tummy. Oh well!

9  Yay garage sales! Yay paint! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: July 14, 2007 03:03:40 PM
So I found these two shelves at a garage sale today for 25 cents each!!!

So off to Michael's ... where I bought some pink and green paint and a mail box that I've been wanting for awhile. I bought some other crap too, for a grand total of $13. You can see the foam stamps I bought also.

I put on two coats of some "Antique White" interior paint that we had left over from painting a door.

I wanted the mailbox/sorter to match my vintage corelle dishes:

I used the stamps, but it didn't come out awesome, so I just hand-painted over the stamps. Took about two coats.

Then got busy adding "cute" to my shelves. These will be used in my craft area, which has lots of pink and flowers  Wink
I thought these would be good to put little jars of miscellaneous and other "goodies" on....

Still drying!

10  Skinny leftover yarn scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by Snyderwagon on: July 04, 2007 02:34:01 PM
Needed something for that leftover yarn from the insomnia hat (I love this yarn and was itching to make something else with it...I had half a ball of the Caron shadows left, and didn't even come close to using it all.) I think this took me about an hour, and once I figured out the pattern I wrote it down b/c I knew I'd want to make another one in hot pink for a friend ... I started that one too, and am using a smaller hook. So it will be even skinnier still!

Used K hook
Ch 5. Ch 1 to turn.
Sc in each ch. (5 sc = base row)

Row 1:
Ch 2 to turn.
DC in first st. Ch 2. Sk 2 st. Dc in 4th and 5th st.

Row 2:
Ch 2 to turn.
Dc in next 2 st. 2 dc in ch space. 1 dc in last st.

Row 3.
Ch 2 to turn.
DC in next st. ch 2. Sk 2 st.  dc in 4th and 5th st.

Repeat row 2 and 3 to your hearts content.
End by doing row 3 followed by a row of sc. add three long tassels to each end. voila.

Pink one added! Red heart soft yarn ... size H hook this time. Just need to add the fringe.
