31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flannos PJs part 2 on: December 04, 2007 04:14:55 PM
A while ago I posted the new pyjama pants that I made and now I have completed the top:

And here is a very dodgy photo of the complete set:

I'll probably add a button at some stage but it'll be a while before it's cold enough to wear them.  I'm also a little disappointed that I didn't take more care laying out my pattern pieces - I seem to have alot of upside-down animals!
32  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flanno PJs 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.
33  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Utility belt 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  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tintin bag 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Devil baby hat 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?
36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mr Men and Little Miss 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!
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting for babies on: May 17, 2007 08:04:30 PM
Hi everyone!
I like knitting for babies because everything is small and knits up quickly!  However, most of the baby yarns I see are synthetic and I know I prefer as much natural fibre as possible in my own jumpers.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me why this is so.  Is it because acrylic and nylon wear better?  Or babies shouldn't be exposed to too much wool?
Thanks in advance!
38  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purple Wrap 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?
39  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Round the Capelet 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.
40  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / One of Marjorie's baby dragons on: May 13, 2007 11:59:20 PM
When I first saw Marjoriecrochets' baby dragon I just had to make one - they are so cute!  You can find the pattern under the heading Dragons Rule!  in this forum.  I have finally finished it.  It was a little fiddly and I'm not a fan of all that sewing but it is definitely worth it!  I made it for a friend who is going overseas so she can take photos of it in random exotic locations.

Thanks for the pattern, Marjorie!
