11  Granny no square, fat bottom bag and birdie pin in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by PixieDust721 on: August 20, 2007 07:10:19 PM
I made these a while ago but I haven't gotten around to taking pics and posting until now:

Here is the Granny no square bag.  It is my second crocheted piece.  I used the same yarns mentioned with only slightly different colours than pictured.  I usually like to get creative with my colour choices, but I think the colours were part of what attracted me to this bag.

Here is a close up of one square.  I used the little feet thingies that you put at the bottom of purses instead of rivets.  I'm pretty please with the bag overall.  It has become my main purse ;o)  I probably will end up lining it eventually because my keys tend to stick out of it.  Also, if I had to redo something, i wouldn't use solid brass rings because they are heavy and loud when they bang into chairs and such.

Here is a fat bottom bag with a little birdie pin that I made for my mom for mother's day.  The yarn was just some acrylic from the rag shop in here favorite colour.  Mom would get mad if i used expensive yarn for her ;o) Although, the contrasting yarn is some bulky hand spun from woolarina that I've been dying to knit with.  I am not too fond of the birdie pin, but luckily it is detachable.

Well, since my original partner flaked, a lovely swap angel named KittyVegas stepped in and this is what she sent me:

Here is a pic of everything.  Sorry about the mess in the background!
a cute knitted owl
a coin purse that matches the pillow that you can see in the main pic.  and an owl patch and little pewter charm ;o)
a beautiful scarf with hot pink (love the colour!!) owl backsides. 

and finally a cute little Japanese inspired stuffie.

I love everything and i feel very lucky to have kittyvegas as my swap angel ;o)

Hey...I know this is an oldish thread...but anyone still interested in doing transfers with regular old crayola crayons should check out this post:


It gives a great tut on fixing the image so that it can be washed.  It involves using crayola brand crayons and drawing right on to the fabric.  I used this method and i think it came out great on this jean skirt i just made and i'm sure it would come out even better on a lighter color.  Here are some pics:

Wow...amazing tats guys!  I espessially love hellokittygirl's spiral on rib cage!  It is simple but i am really attracted to spirals.  did it hurt?  I am told the rib cage hurts alot, so i have been avoiding it, even though id really like one there....I love tattoos, even though not all of my experiences were positive...

well enough blabbing...here is my first tat (an amy brown fairy):

here is a star on my wrist:

Here are my swallows (they didn't come out so good, need to get them fixed...i think my artist was high on something :op ...no really...i wish i was kidding)

And here is my latest and my fav for that matter ;o) (sorry 'bout the undies in the shot!)

15  Okay...I finished my first crochet project: Blissful Halter in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by PixieDust721 on: April 25, 2007 03:06:10 PM
Okay i finished it!  It's not perfect, but i'm pretty happy with it as my first crochet ;o)  The weaving row came out a bit long and i'm not sure why, so I compensated by not doing the plackets that they called for on the sides of the "skirt."  I also added two rows to the skirt because other wise it seemed to be too short.  Plus, i may be jumping the gun here, because I am so new at this, but i think some of the pattern is off (aside for the already posted corrections) on the cups.  So i just followed the instructions and not the stitch numbers and they seemed to come out right.  I used hempathy instead of whatever yarn they called for.  So maybe that accounts for some of the differences ;o)  I also need to line the cups still because it is quite revealing if i didn't have the tank underneath ;op

Let me know what you think.
