These are a couple necklaces I made for Christmas gifts. 

Pink & Black glass beads with pearls on silver wire with matching earrings:

Mixed purple crystals and pearls on gold wire:

I stitched this up as a Christmas gift for a friend.
It's a line from the Martina McBride song, "This One's For the Girls," and it hits a little bit too close to home sometimes.

I just wrapped a normal mat for a picture frame with scrapbooking paper, decorated with some scrapbooking stickers and accented the frame with a little bit of ribbon/ric rac.

I'm pretty happy with the finished product.

Thanks for the comments  Smiley

And to answer your questions alwaysinmyroom, I cut my sheets up in a huge spiral, so the entire sheet was one long piece of "yarn".  It took FOREVER!  The strips probably varied anywhere from 1-1.5 inches, I definitely wasn't consistent, since i cut while watching movies and I was really sick of cutting by the end of it.  I've since found a tutorial on how to cut pillowcases so that they're one continuous piece of "yarn", and I think it'd be totally worth it to sew the two long ends of your sheet together and then follow this tutorial: http://laughingpurplegoldfish.blogspot.com/2008/06/no-join-method-of-cutting-fabric-strips.html
That's what I'm going to try with the next one I do. 

And the rug didn't seem to slip around on the kitchen floor, nope, it's pretty heavy.

I crocheted this rug using two old twin size flat sheets.  It took pretty much all of the blue sheet and a good amount of the yellow sheet.  The finished dimensions are about 20" x 30".  I really like the look and feel of it.  I'm pretty new to crochet, so I started with a basic rectangle, but I want to attempt an oval or circle next. 

This is a picture of it in use in my kitchen, though I'm giving it to my mom and she'll likely put it in front of the vanity in their newly renovated bathroom, where it'll look much nicer:

This is a full shot of it:

And a closeup:

Thanks for looking!

These are great!

I'm in the process of embroidering my first pillowcases as a gift to a friend of mine who is getting an apartment with her boyfriend.  If they turn out half as good as yours did I'll be extremely pleased!

Wow, I really love the look of these with the text as the background. 

I really like the house one and the bubble effect in the first one.   They're all really great!
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby It's Cold Outside on: July 17, 2008 06:29:49 PM
This is my first attempt at crocheting anything wearable.
I decided to go with the Baby It's Cold Outside pattern from Crochet Me because it seemed really simple, and it really was!  It was super easy to follow and worked up really quickly.  I'm pleased with the result

I used Vanna's Choice Baby yarn.  The edging is actually more of a cream color, but it's on a yellow sheet, so it looks more yellow than it really is.
