1  Ogres are like Onions, They have Layers in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pheather on: October 01, 2009 07:18:08 PM
Hi Everyone.

It has been a while since I posted.  My niece wanted to be Shrek for Halloween and so I helped my sister with her costume.  I crocheted a hat for her.  It is loosely based on the Brrr Baby Beanie found here http://craftyrahrah.wordpress.com/2008/08/11/brrr-baby-beanie-free-pattern/, which I had made before but I couldn't find my copy of the pattern when I made the Shrek hat, so I recreated it from memory.  I was also largely inspired by this person:  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20209006.  I am proud because I didn't know if I could do it, but I did.  Thanks everyone for looking.

I hope I am okay posting it here, since I didn't create the rest of the costume, I thought this was the most appropriate place.  Please let me know if it needs to be moved.

I have been watching this thread with great interest for a long time.  I have a friend who is having a baby girl in May.  Her nursery is in sage and rose.  I used Lion Cotton Ease in Lime, Berry and Almond.  It measures 40 inches across from the tip to the inner corner (don't know how else to describe it).  The colors are as close as I can get them, because my house is very dark.

I just did my first personal swap with the lovely Dulcinea.  I gave Ariaya one of my aunt's fused glass dragonfly tiles (my aunt is an artist) and Dulcinea liked it.  So I got her one and she made me this wonderful crochet hook roll:

Okay, I hope Ariaya doesn't mind my impatience.  She received over a week ago.  Here is what I sent:

Group Shot:

She said in her profile that she liked getting Dishcloths.  I sent her three.

Flower with a pot scrubber center (my daughter wanted in the photo shoot, so it is a where's Amelia picture):



A Necklace:

A small bag for holding WIPS:

Stitch Markers:

This was not made by me.  My Aunt is a wonderful Fused Glass Artist.  Ariaya loves dragonflies, and I couldn't resist.  This is a small 4x4 (approximately) hanging tile that my aunt makes.

I also sent her some cotton yarn and some pretty papers for her atcs/papercrafts.

5  Some Dishcloths in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pheather on: February 22, 2008 08:43:46 PM
I made these for a swap. 

Flower Scrubbie:

This was a supereasy pattern.  You crochet onto one of those plastic mesh pot scrubbers.  The only change I made was because it didn't close over the scrubbie and I thought it made it look really unfinished.  I just crocheted in the round over it and created a hanging loop.  This was made in Lion Cotton in Poppy (my favorite color)

Star Washcloth:

Nothing special to report here, the yarn was Sugar and Cream.


This one is Lion Cotton in lime.

I got the star and the scrubbie from here: crochetpatterncentral.com.  The dishcloth/hotpad is a pattern I learned on here a long time ago and have made dozens of time.  I will try and give credit when I can find it.

6  A couple of FOs in Beads: Completed Projects by Pheather on: February 22, 2008 08:31:48 PM
I don't post much in this board.  Here are a few new beaded things I made for a swap partner.

Triple Strand Necklace:

I made this using different size seed beads in different shades of blue, green and purple.  The pattern is random.  There are also some square glass beads and the dragonfly pendant is from a local artist.  It has a toggle clasp.  This was my first time using the coated wire (sorry I don't know the name) and crimp beads.  I have done all my other beading with fishing line or in macrame.

Stitch Markers:

Nothing too special.  The red flower bead on the far right is from some antique beads a friend gave me.  The inspire charm I took from a charm bracelet I never wear. 

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

9  Whoo Hat and mary jane slippers for my niece in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pheather on: December 28, 2007 10:00:30 PM
Here is the Xmas present I made my 6 month old niece.  It is the Whoo Hat from the book Not Your Mamma's Crochet and some baby Mary Jane's (which at this time I don't have the link at hand, but I will edit and give credit where it is due).  They are crocheted out of Lion Microspun in three different colors (which I have also forgotten)

I am really proud of this project, because I had a really hard time with the hat, and had to restart it after about two gazillion rows.  It is squatter and less tall than the book version and I ended up adding two extra sections of colors.  I am still proud of it though. 

Thanks for looking.

10  Clay Covered Crochet Hooks in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Pheather on: December 28, 2007 09:43:16 PM
Hi, First post in this forum and first time playing with the wonders of poly clay.  My Aunt-in-law crochets so I made her these for Christmas:

The picture isn't that great.  I used Sculpey and used two colors Fuchsia and a Blue (forgot the exact shade).  The purple you see is from mixing the two together.  I had a great time with these, so you may be seeing me more in the future.
