1  Re: The Dude's Sweater Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by NerdyCrochetGal on: February 12, 2014 09:28:11 AM
Thanks everyone! I made this by hand, and it took a few weeks, and pretty much ate all of the free time I had in January. The Coen brothers are the guys that have brought us such films as "The Big Lebowski", "Fargo", and "Raising Arizona". This is a picture from "The Big Lebowski" of the sweater that inspired this blanket.

2  The Dude's Sweater Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by NerdyCrochetGal on: February 11, 2014 04:46:49 PM
I've been absent from here for a really long time, though I have still been crafting. Recently I made a blanket for my guy, who is a big fan of the Coen brothers.

I was able to use the charts from Andrea Rangel's "The Dude" pattern on ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-dude). It saved me so much time! I just made it out of some acrylic yarn I got on sale, but I know that it needed to be machine washable.

With any luck you guys will be seeing more of me, and soon!

3  Handy Santa Ornaments in Winter Holidays by NerdyCrochetGal on: December 21, 2009 06:29:10 AM
I know I got this idea from some family magazine, so I can't say that it is 100% original, but they were making it as a painted hand stamp (much like thanksgiving turkeys) and not a felt ornament. I picked up a few supplies (quite cheap maybe $10 and the supplies will make a TON), and got to work and this is what I came up with!

They are a little time consuming, but I love them and I love that it is a personalized ornament from my son, because it is a hand print.

Here are the supplies that you will need, along with a glue gun, a hole punch, and an iron:
-Freezer paper
-green felt (or whatever color you want for the back, you will use the most of this color)
-white felt
-red felt
-flesh color felt
-19.05mm (3/4") white pom poms
-10mm pink pom poms
-12mm wiggle eyes
---(keep in mind though that the bigger your child's hands are the bigger you will want these to be so it is proportional)
-puffy white fabric paint (if you want to date the back)

Basic Instructions:
1. Trace the outline of your child's hand (or yours, whatever you want)
2. clean up the outline and make a copy of it onto another piece of pape
3. Divide the 2nd handprint into 3 parts lines cutting across the palm, the top will be the hat, the middle the face, and the bottom part the beard.
You will have a hand piece, a hat, face, and beard, and I even cut out little mustaches.
4. I used freezer paper to make the patters for the ornaments, and then ironed them onto the felt to make cutting easier (make sure your iron is on a low setting otherwise you will melt the felt to your iron, and spend about 15 minutes scraping off fuzzy felt pieces that melted onto your iron... not that I did this or anything)
5. cut out all of your pieces, warm up your glue gun.
6. glue the hat, face and beard pieces onto the hand print. then glue on the eyes, mustache nose, and pom pom onto the hat.
7. let it all dry for a few minutes, then punch a hole in the top to run a ribbon through, so you can hang it up.
8. personalize the back with the puffy fabric paint

ALL DONE! If anyone else decides to make these I would LOVE to see the results. I had a lot of fun with these, but I can't wait until my son is a little older so he can have fun making these too!

I just wanted to share this pic because it shows more of the detail on the hat itself. Shows the steampunky gears I sewed on. This is the pic I was looking to post originally but couldn't find what folder I saved it in.

Sorry it's blurry, and this picture was taken before it was even finished. But I really fell in love with it.. Wink I am going to be making some more. This was my first time ever making a cocktail hat, and it was awesome. Had so much fun. Glad you like it.

A picture of all the goodies. Sorry the pictures are so crappy, but I had to turn off the flash due to all the reflective things, and the weather has been really gray and crappy lately.

Here is a close up of the magnets and charms, I am just blown away by Titus' hand!! you can't tell here but she even added in such minute details like the creases in the palm of the hand.

Finally a closer picture of the wonderful cross-stitch, with my favorite quote!!!

Thanks KaishaBackwards, I really hope you like the things that I made you!!

8  Patterns??? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by NerdyCrochetGal on: March 03, 2009 09:25:40 AM
I have absolutely fallen in love with the short in front long in back skirts that I've been seeing. I want to make on that is knee length in front and has a little bit of a train in the back. But I can't find a pattern at all for what I want.

I did find two pictures to sort of help illustrate what I want.

This is a photo of a wedding dress, I like how it's a gradual transition and sort of cascades, but I don't like the fact that it looks like a shiny pillow.

I really like this one because the skirt is so full, I bet it would be super pretty while you're twirlin' and dancin'.

If someone knows of a pattern that would be awesome. Or if someone can just help me out with general shapes I will need. I really appreciate any and all help. Please keep in mind I am new to making my own patterns.

9  Cup O' Cocoa TP roll cover in Crochet: Completed Projects by NerdyCrochetGal on: November 13, 2008 01:48:15 PM
So I decided that I needed a TP roll cover that was Holiday themed, to go with the transformation of the rest of the house. So I sifted through tons of patterns for various TP covers and didn't find any that I liked. Then I started to brainstorm what I would want, and came up with the idea of a cup of cocoa. In order to assist me with this I tracked down a pattern that was sort of close to what I wanted and I found this pattern from the dishcloth diaries blog.

So from that I came up with this:

A little close up on the trees:

Basically I added in randomly placed cream colored bobbles puff stitches to simulate marshmallows and I also made myself some Christmas trees to decorate my mug. I am pretty happy with it. Now to stop procrastinating on all the other Christmas things I wanted/needed to make. Cheesy

I fried up some of the lagrimitas today. They were delicious, especially when I doused them with the salsa Mirchita sent.

Just to give you an idea of how much they puff up. It's sooo cool to cook them, although I am still getting the hang of it, I burned a few.

Also, nice little trick, my boyfriend has a sweet tooth so we tossed a handful of them in powdered sugar. Was pretty tasty. Sorta reminded me of churros..
