31  Flanno PJs in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by julietalpha on: October 18, 2007 10:09:59 PM
I've had this fabric lying around for a while:

My intention was always to make some PJs and I decided to use this pattern for the pants:

I came out with this:

Cute, hey?  The only modification I made was elastic in the cuffs so that I don't lose too much warmth.  They were really quick - three seams and three elastic casings.

I know this is an old post but was looking for inspiration to make a cactus for a friend.  She's managed to kill the two succulents I gave her for previous birthdays so I decided to make one of these.

I used a terracotta pot and a yarn pom pom for the flower but other than that it's essentially the same.  I think it's really cute!

33  Utility belt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by julietalpha on: July 19, 2007 05:49:40 PM
I was recently Head God Squad for an Antioch weekend (Antioch is a Catholic youth group and the Head God Squad runs the behind-the-scenes stuff on their recruitment weekends) and I didn't want to rely on pockets to carry my stuff.  I knew I'd need to have things with me the whole time such as phone, guitar tuner, keys, lip balm and pens.  Inspired by a similar post on Craftster (I think it was called a hostess' apron) I whipped this up in an hour or so.

It has separate pockets for everything I needed.  The white ribbon was to tie the key on to so it didn't get lost.  It went down a treat and was really handy!

34  Tintin bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by julietalpha on: July 19, 2007 05:04:33 PM
My sister was going to throw out an old Tintin t-shirt recently but I told her to give it to me to make something from it.  I put it in my room and forgot about it...

Until Wednesday, when I decided to make a bag out of it.  Well, make a bag and sew the pictures onto it.

Here's the shirt:

And here's the bag:

It's got pockets inside and velcro closing.  I'm really proud of it!

35  Re: Lavender Bunny for a Baby Now with Pattern! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: June 04, 2007 11:10:48 PM
Here is my homage to the lavender bunny.  Mine is in mint green and is also for a baby.

I wasn't feeling imaginative so I pretty much just copied the face...

The only thing the original was missing - a cute fluffy tail!

Thanks for the pattern Rheatheylia!  I think it would make a marvellous alien if you used the right colours and swapped the ears for spirals or antennae.

36  Devil baby hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: May 21, 2007 05:02:54 PM
I wasn't going to bother posting this baby hat I made because it's not my pattern (it's from Hello Yarn) and a much better version has recently been posted on this Forum (Noro baby bonnet, I think the thread is called).  I liked the simplicity of the pattern so I made it in some convenient red yarn.  It wasn't until I completed the first ear that I realised it looked like devil horns!  I suppose this is appropriate at times but not a nice thing to be implying about someone else's baby!  What do you think?

37  Mr Men and Little Miss in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by julietalpha on: May 21, 2007 04:53:39 PM
My boyfriend spotted a Mr Happy t-shirt in a shop and really liked it but it cost $40 and I don't believe in paying more than about $20 for a t-shirt unless it's really special.  It's his birthday next weekend and I thought a homemade Mr Happy t-shirt might be a good present so I did a bit of investigating on Craftster and discovered Edel's post in the Iron on Transfers section about using crayons on t-shirts.  I bought two white shirts for about $10 each and made these:

(It's still drying - I just turned the photo upside down!)

I used better crayons for his so the colour is much bolder.  I think they've both got that slightly faded vintage look though.  I just hope it's wash proof!

Hi inkberry.  I saw the picture on the website and loved it but I was a bit peeved they didn't show it from the front - I assumed it was big and would wrap around.  I still like it but like to know what it is I'm making before I start!  Mine is about a metre along the top and looks a bit like this:

I realise that a black singlet isn't the best type of shirt to show it off but wrapped fairly loosely around the shoulders it meets just below the neckline at the front.

I definitely recommend this pattern.  I love using big hooks and needles because I have a short attention span.  I started the other morning thinking I'd just just do a few rows but ended up finishing it in virtually one hit!

39  Purple Wrap in Crochet: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: May 14, 2007 12:14:16 AM
I started with this.

I ended up with this.

It's a free Coats and Clark pattern which can be found here http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/Accessories/LM0258+Crochet+Scallop+Wrap.htm

This picture shows the detail and is a better shot of the colour.  I do like this purple!

Unfortunately, it's a relatively stiff yarn so instead of draping nicely like in the picture mine sticks out in random places.  My friend recommended beating it to try and soften it but I wondered if any of my fellow Craftsters could help me out with a suggestion?

40  Round the Capelet in Crochet: Completed Projects by julietalpha on: May 14, 2007 12:04:27 AM
After scoring some cheap yarn from the local Salvos I whipped up this little poncho from a free Interweave pattern called Round the Capelet.  It was supposed to have a 15mm hook but I got a 10mm because I didn't think the yarn was big enough for a 15mm.  I then multiplied all the numbers by 1.5 (so instead of starting with a chain of 36 I did 54 and instead of 4 rows of trebles I did 6).

I'm really happy with it and I've already worn it several times.  Unfortunately the yarn is a little scratchy.  I'm hoping washing it in some sort of wool stuff will soften it a bit but if not I'll just have to wear it over long sleeves.
