1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Round-and-Round Headband (pretty pics!) on: January 21, 2008 06:15:51 PM
Ta-Dah! My new creation... Some sort of Simply Soft in a fuschia-purple mix and purple scrap yarn.
I'm happy with it Grin

now for pics! (there's not a pic of the whole thing laid out, but you get the idea, I think...)

Giving the Evil Eye (teehee)

Close-Up of stitch+colors

Close Up #2

It's made up of 8 circles and ties in the back. A very simple, yet very rewarding project. Seems like headbands is my thing!!!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mohair Flapper Hat on: August 10, 2007 11:21:04 PM
The first time EVER I make a hat that looks and feels this good! The pattern was from Candi Jensen's Hooked on Crochet ( Mohair Flapper Hat) I used Patons Divine in Regal Red (acrylic/mohair/polyester) and a J hook instead of the suggested yarn/hook, and I haven't made the flower 'cause I'm lazy.

P.S- Pardon the pic, it was taken with a cell phone in bad light...

3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 19 ENTRIES / Queen of Bad Hair Days Tiara on: July 03, 2007 10:36:01 AM
well! I decided to try out the challenge... I had a bunch of old perm rollers my grandma had given me, so I kinda sculpted a frame with silver wire and "artistically" arranged the rollers on it. I also added a hair stick, a jeweled butterfly clip ( what's a tiara without jewels?) and some other pins. I called it "Bad Hair Day" because... That's what my days are usually like :-D


hope you like it!!!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pretty Pillowcase into Pretty top!!!!! (modified for "tutorial") on: June 21, 2007 02:37:01 PM
A friend of mine gave me some really cool pillowcases the other day, I instantly wanted to make something out of them. Problem is, being a plus-sized girl, I was past the idea of just keeping the sides sewn and doing something to the tops and bottoms. So I cut them all up, made a skirt part out of 4 panels ( 1 small, 2 medium, 1 large), the bodice is 4 parts as well ( back part I did elastic ruching) and some lace for trim and straps. The hem is just iron-on hem tape, I was being lazy. I'll probably run it through the machine though... on to the pics!!!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fern Gully Headband (pretty pics!!!) on: May 23, 2007 01:21:58 AM
I did it!!! It's 4 a.m and  I started crocheting about an hour ago, on a whim... I wanted something girly, flowery, classy, different, and so this was born:

i used different colors of scrap WW yarn, some multi-colored wool, lion suede for the band and polyester threaded with sequins for accents on the leaves. Pearly and multi-colored buttons....

so, any comments?

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Help on throwing a "Frais Party" on: May 07, 2007 01:47:57 PM
Frais Bath & Body is the name of my bath products line, and lots of people have requested demonstrations. I was thinking throwing a Frais Party at my house so people could come and see it, touch it, smell it, etc. Problem is I don't know where to start ( what to put on flyers, business cards, even labels)
Please help! I've never done anything business related before and I want this to turn out right

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Alice in Wonderland Retro-Style T-shirt Recon on: May 06, 2007 11:58:33 PM
So i bought this plain red T-shirt for about $3 and it was

A: Too Big,
B: Too Plain
C: altogether boring/ unflattering

Solution? I took in the sides, cut off the top and added a sweetheart neckline and halter strap, and transferred some classic Alice in Wonderland images onto it.

I love it now! And it gets me lots of compliments... A very easy project to do...
