1  Crochet hook charm... thingies. :) in Completed Projects by emosauce on: March 14, 2012 09:47:00 PM
I finally made some crochet charm thingies! This idea has been puttering around in my head a while, because I'm sick of taking the hook from one project for another project and then going back to the first project later and forgetting which hook I was using. They're not fancy or perfect, but they'll work and I think they look pretty. Cheesy I made two sets for the hooks I use most often, but I plan to make a few extras and probably one each for all the other odd hooks I have.

This is actually my second attempt at making these, the first one I just used cheap beads that I had, and it looked like crap. I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and while wandering around I ended up with a handful of beads and realized they'd be nice for this project. (That place is terrible for me, I go in for one thing and come out with everything.) So far I've just tested them on some spare yarn and they work well for my needs. The clips aren't the greatest, but I couldn't find the right size lobster clasps, but when I get some it will be easy to switch them out if I want to.

Anyway, sorry for all the words. Have a picture!

The colors are actually more pastel than they look here. The contrast messed with the colors. The beads are a mix of white, clear, greens, and blues. Smiley

I wasn't sure where to post this, crochet board? Trinkets? So here it is in misc.

2  Random finished objects! in Crochet: Completed Projects by emosauce on: January 27, 2012 04:57:15 AM
I went through a crochet frenzy recently and actually finished a few things. Still have a lot of WIPs, but here's what I finished so far:

Teal hat with butterfly applique. I think the hook was too small for the yarn, because it kind of... puckers? I dunno. It looks fine on though.

I love this hat! It was supposed to be toddler size but I think I made it too big. Just means I have to make another one, but it's a quick project.

Actually finished this a while ago, just didn't add the button closure or weave in ends until the other day.

Frilly pink sweater dress for my Shih-Tzu. I don't have her yet so no modelling.

Another one for the pup. This is smaller so it should fit her right away, for a little while at least. After that... hopefully someone else can use it. Smiley

That's all for now, but I have more that I'll hopefully finish soon. If you want links to the patterns for any of these, let me know! The two dog outfits were made from the same pattern modified by me.

3  A few new clothes for my Shih-Tzu! Plus a "closet" in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by emosauce on: January 27, 2012 04:46:13 AM
Okay, I don't have her home yet, but I'm adopting a Shih-Tzu puppy in two weeks! So of course long before I get her, I had to start making outfits. I also repurposed an old metal shelf thing to store some of her stuff and her clothes.

"Closet." Please ignore my walls, I need to repaint one day.

I call this the Fancy TARDIS dress. The trim is white, not light blue like it looks.

My first sweater, just happened to be a dog sweater.

This is her fancy pink dress. Might add trim to it, not sure yet.

I can add the patterns if anyone is interested. The two crochet sweater/dresses were made from the same pattern that I altered a bit. Smiley

4  Nook Book Cover :) in Completed Projects by emosauce on: December 27, 2011 10:09:15 AM
I spent a long time looking up fancy covers for my Nook but I couldn't decide what one I wanted, so I made a temporary one that... well, it's been in use 6 months or so. Smiley I'm hoping to make a TARDIS cover one day, but in the meantime this works well.


Inside, with flash.

No flash.

View of the bottom.

I made this using an old book from a library book sale. It was so hard to actually start breaking down the book. I hate destroying them, haha. But it had illustrations in it that I wanted to use for another project so I just said "Suck it up!" and went at it. The inside is a flannel fabric I got from the remnant bin at Walmart. I covered plastic canvas in the fabric with some glue, and then stitched all along the edges to give it a cuter (to me anyway) look. Then I glued the fabric wrapped pieces to the book, after adding elastic to one of them.

It's not perfect and probably not good for protecting it from bumps and stuff, but since it just sits on my nightstand or around the house, that's all I need. I'll probably make another one out of a thinner book once I find one, or maybe just go ahead and make the TARDIS case.

Thanks for looking!

5  Mittenscarf! in Crochet: Completed Projects by emosauce on: January 29, 2011 10:58:44 AM
Hi everyone! I just have one thing to show today. I had a request from a co-worker for a scarf with pockets or mittens attached, and while I found a few patterns, there was nothing I really liked so I just kind of winged it. This is my first time winging an item that I intend to give away. I really hope she likes it.

The mittenscarf in all it's glory.

Closer look at the mittens.

It's hard to tell here, but on the back part of the mittens that attach to the scarf (mitten on left), I just did single crochet, and on the top it's ribbed (mitten on right).

The best picture I have of it in action.

This is just to show kind of how it looks when it's on.
