1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Double Tail Santa Hat on: December 14, 2010 03:47:21 AM
I'm a mail carrier and when I saw this hat I just knew I had to have one to wear on my route.  Since I deliver packages and XMas Cards all day I'm just like Santa anyways.  Smiley

I have to tell you....I've had vehicles stop in the middle of the road to scream compliments to me on this hat.  The compliments just don't stop....everyone loves this hat....young and old.

I haven't crocheted in years and would consider myself little more than a beginner now.  I'd never done cables but after watching the youtube video several times and tearing out the hat a couple times I finally got it!  woo-hoo!

Thanks for a great pattern!

Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial!  I wear a belt almost every day and I love to sew but never thought about making my own belt.  This is great!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Ear flap hat tutorial on: January 23, 2008 08:04:42 AM
I was looking for an Ear Flap hat when I found your pattern.  I had to make it right away...unfortunately I didn't have any 16 inch circular needles.  I tried learning the magic loop with my 29 inch needles but it just wasn't working for me.   Sad  So....what else could I do but make my own needles.  It was actually pretty easy to make them out of dowels.  I don't think I'll ever buy a metal/plastic pair again!   Cheesy

So...here is my pink hat.  Pink just happens to be my favorite color and the brighter the better.  This hat was a breeze to make.  

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for this tutorial.  I just made my first pair of double pointed needles.  I haven't painted them yet.  Yours sure look great!

Wow!  You sure have been busy.  Everything looks fabulous!  I haven't tried the MaryJane slippers yet but you have inspired me.....I think my little girl would love them.

I just made this hat.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  I go through spurts of knitting and so I never get to be very good at it because when I decide to knit again I have to re-learn a lot of the stitches.  But after all of my trials and errors...and tearing it apart 3 times I finally got it done.  It was well worth it.  The instructions are very very easy to understand.  I will definately be making more of these!

Oh...I'd post a picture but I need to meet my 10 post requirement first. Smiley I'll be back. 

Thank you so much!

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How To Prevent Fading???? on: August 24, 2007 11:04:02 AM
Four months ago I made some poster sized signs for my church. I printed them on an inkjet printer.   They are in a window that gets a LOT of sun. They are looking really pale now.   I realize that no matter what I do I can not completely stop the fading, but is there a way to slow the fading down?  I was thining maybe a glaze or a sealer???  Right now they are in glass frames.

I'm going to print some new banners and would like any advice you could give me.  I know the sun is an enemy of papers and inks. 

Thank you all for your help!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / T-Shirt Ribbon Tab Skirt For Dimy on: July 31, 2007 05:40:20 AM
I wanted to make my daughter a 4th of July outfit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on fabric and notions so I hit the thrift store.  At my local thrift store each week a different colored tag is 25 cents. So this skirt cost probably less than a dollar once it was all done.    

So anyways....I found this flaggy tshirt and knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  

I made it into a skirt for  Diamond but made the front printing to be on the butt.  I also put some little ribbon tabs along the bottom.  I think that touch made the skirt pop.

Here are the action shots....

Every time she's worn this outfit she gets tons of compliments.  She doesn't usually wear jeans underneath....it was just cold the day I took pictures. Smiley

I hope you all like it as much as I do.  It was super easy to make and tshirt material is so easy to work with.

Oh...and thanks for letting me share.  I don't really have any crafting buddies around here who share my enthusiasm and I have to tell somebody!  LOL.


9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: CUTEST little girl's halter top! on: July 12, 2007 03:22:29 PM
Well, I finished my little girls halter top and I think it turned out beautifully!  It was super easy for me even though I consider myself a newbie to crochet.  I know how to do a lot of different crafts but never stick with anything long enough to become a pro at it.   Undecided

My daughter, Diamond,  wears a size 6 and so I used a size G hook.  I also added four more rows to the length.  I crochet kindof loose so this worked for me.    The halter fits her perfectly...not too tight....not too loose.  She's already recieved lots of compliments on it.  Smiley  I can't wait to do one in black. 

  Sorry...I can't post pictures here yet...just links.

I used the Sugar and Cream yarn and it took about 7 oz. to complete.  I'll definately be making lots more of these! 

Thanks so much for the inspiration!

I think this halter top is amazing! Your color choices have inspired me! 

 I haven't crocheted in ages and just happened to wander into this forum last night. Now I'm going to pick up my hook again.  Thank you so much for posting this.  My 6 year old daughter is going to love it. 

 I just gave all of my yarn away and now I get to go to Walmart and pick out some new colors to try this halter. I've never made any clothing and I'm not even that great at crocheting but I'm going to give this a try.  I'm so excited.   Cheesy
