181  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: fuzzy bunny slipper sizing and oval issues on: April 28, 2007 12:38:55 PM
Thanks much - I will try that, but did you do that with the upper sole portion or the bottom sole portion? I'm not sure if I have enough mohair to use it everywhere the pattern calls for it, so I'm doing the pattern in backwards order. I've finished ears, ear edging, and slipper top.

I'm really struggling with the oval section right now. Ovals and I don't seem to get along - I had the same issue I'm having now when making a bag. My stitch counts are not coming out correctly. Are you supposed to crochet into the slip stitch when you do the rounds? I think that may be my problem? I can get around the first turn just fine, but when I get to the end/beginning again I have problems trying to decide where to do the join and such - even though I've used a stitch marker. If an experienced oval crocheter would chime in on this, I'd be very appreciative!  Smiley

I'm making the fuzzy bunny slippers and have relatively small feet (US 6.5). I was wondering if anyone else who made these could offer some advice on which sole to use to help me figure out how to size them and then how big I should make the other sole based off of that? Or should I just follow the pattern and see how it goes? It wouldn't be too horrible if they were somewhat too big since they're slippers and all...

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Very cool! Are you just using yarn to thread them on? I love it and would like to make one myself sometime! Also, for the lace up back, what are you attaching to have those loops? It looks like something other than the can tabs?

You rock!

I love this bag! I even have "yarn" all cut up that I was going to use to make a different bag, but now I think I'm going to have to try this one instead! One question, and sorry, 'cuz it's kind of a silly one, but how do you (and everyone else!) put the lining in? How to you measure how much fabric you need and then do you just hem it and then sew it in by hand somehow keeping it all neat and pretty looking? Sorry, I just learned how to crochet over New Year's from this book and my sewing experience is still in single digits of completed object!

Thanks much!

I really love this! I think I'm going to have to make one for my dad or my brother (haven't decided which one gets a penguin and which one gets something else yet)! Anyway, how did you do the belly? Did you add the white afterwards somehow or switch colors each line or what? (Sorry, kind of a newbie to crochet - I learned from the book over New Year's.)

Thanks much!
