1  messenger / travel bag - with pretty maidens! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by travellingcyn on: December 03, 2009 03:00:57 PM
hello! i'm excited that I've just (almost) finished my new bag! I was sick of not being able to find a day bag that suits me when I'm travelling, so I found some funky fabric and made my own, and I am molto happy with it  Grin
I used LauPre's tute for easy zip pockets and the Heart of Mary tute for putting the whole thing together. It doesn't have a strap yet as the one I cut is a bit too short for my liking, so I will probably pick up some strap/webbing/whatever its called on the weekend to finish it. I love it! roll on the pix:



thanks for looking Smiley

After a weekend of stressful crochet, I knocked this up to, as my friend put it, get my confidence back:

And I am happy to have somewhere to put all my bits n bobs

Pattern can be found here, but I added the pocket at the end:

3  Meet Ivan and Alexander, the gloves in Crochet: Completed Projects by travellingcyn on: September 21, 2009 04:21:37 AM
It all started with a friend saying, oh I can never find gloves to fit me...so, what do I do? I offered to make some (Oh sure, it will be a challenge  Cool )
So here are Ivan and Alexander. Ivan, cos they were so terrible to make, Alexander cos they're a great achievement for me to finish (I've started these about 5 times since April). These are unblocked right now, but I am sooo happy they're done I had to post!

Was thinking of adding a tab along the cuff where the buttons are, a la driving gloves, but not sure it's necessary

Pattern can be found here (I made several modifications)


Thanks for looking!! CnC welcome

4  More from THH - spring in winter, pdq & FBB in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by travellingcyn on: September 13, 2009 06:27:12 AM
A woman at my work gave me bags of yarn when she found out I crochet, so I made these hats for her as a thank you:
The left on is the hat from Spring in winter, as are both the flowers, the right one is based on the PDQ:

The green yarn is actually a baby-pastel-mint-green if you know what I mean, and I didn't realise until I took pix, these kind of look like baby hats, but for adults...oh well Roll Eyes

and for me, an FBB since my old handbag died - its a bit stretched since I been using it for a couple weeks already. The handle and lining are salvaged from the old handbag. I also need to put something pretty on it to brighten it up.

Thanks for looking!

5  cupcake goodness in Dessert by travellingcyn on: June 03, 2009 03:18:31 PM
So I'm not amazing at baking, but I do like making sweet things, and even better I have a team at my work willing to eat it all  Cheesy (its not really fun baking for 1). I started making birthday cakes for people but cupcakes are much easier to divide between 12 people. These are my latest:
Orange and white chocolate sponge:

the recipe is actually for a big cake, which I have also made but this time I wanted to make angel cakes. Its such a super easy recipe and has worked perfectly both times.

Chocolate cupcakes made with yummmmmmy recipe from allrecipies

aaaand Nigella's chocolate raspberry pavlova. v. messy to divvy up, but oh so amazing to eat.

Thanks for checking them out!  Smiley If anyone wants the recipes let me know, I'll find the links

8  Woo! a year's worth of happy hooker-ing in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by travellingcyn on: February 27, 2009 12:01:47 PM
Hi everyone!
so, I moved halfway round the world last year, and had to retire my sewing machine to my mum  Sad What is a girl to do when she is in need of portable craft? Crochet! Although I can crochet, I never bothered to much with it when I could sew instead, but now I was without my machine, and in need of craft, I bought myself some hooks and the Happy Hooker and got started. Without further ado:
Exchange bag (hard to see in black, I know)

Sweetpea shawl

Seija set

Stripes and stripes scarf

and a random, not HH scarf, that was made on 2 train rides, a bus ride and a couple of tube trips, in across 3 countries.

Thanks for looking!
