1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scrappy Blanket for my Daughter on: November 30, 2010 02:28:48 PM

 so i made my daughter a blanket.  i was at a  yard sale last year and found half a bag of yarn and squares made up.  so i did the rest up.

  And i would take a picture of the whole thing,  except my 21 month old keeps stealing it.  it was going to be a xmas present for her,  but she found me ~  haha,  oka  so got out of bed late at night with a nightmare, and promply hauled it back up stairs to fall asleep till 9 am.  one tired little girl.

  she clearly loves it.  as we were doing pictures of some other crocheted stuff and she made a bed on the coffee tale.  hahaaa...  So happy with it.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / earring holder help? on: November 29, 2010 10:10:33 PM
oh great crafting guru's of Craftster,  i am in need of your assistance.

  MNy grandmother had a stroke 7 years ago,  and so find most earring holders hard to use. as more delicately dexterity is needed, that she does not have.  She is one handed ~her other is immobolized by the stroke~ right handed to be specific.

  Can i ask your help in some ideas to use for a earring holder,  she only uses hooked earrings.  as studs are a 2 handed ordeal.

  I thought of doing maybe an old spice rack, or doing an embroidery loop with some ribbon on it.  something the can just hook the earrings into and go.  but still simple enough to hang onto the wall with. or stand on her bathroom counter.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Vespa tights! on: October 18, 2009 09:22:29 PM
i was sooo tired of not being able to find tights that fit me!  so many lovely ladies out there get to have awesome looking tights,  and this curvy body had huge calves and fat thighs.  Cheesy

  i love my body and slowly working on losing weight..

  and well.  darn it!  TIGHTS!

i bought this material 3 years ago witht he intention of making a shirt.  i never got around to it.  i adore the fabric.  it was a discontinued one from walmart.  paid 3.50 for 1.6 metres!!!

  so onto my tights

  amazing no?

  this is the fabric for them

so comfy!  i'd do a better picture.  but i am alone  and it is 10:30 pm!

  also  made with this tutorial.  Cheesy

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / sewing squares together.. on: October 04, 2009 08:26:14 PM
so i got a bag of squares (roughly 80-90 squares) in a garage sale!  (whee!  box of yarn and fabric $5!)

  now i have never pieced together squares into a quilt.  they are simply 16  stitches wide, and 12 rows high.  not granny squares.  any idea how i can sew/crochet them together that don't create a huge ridge. 
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / BroBee in Blanket Form on: August 08, 2009 09:47:56 PM

  this is what i started out with.  my design for it.  XD

This is how it looks now!

  that is a 12 inch ruler in there to show you how big this blanket is.  XD

  The lady i made it for asked for it to be longer and wider then a crib blanket. 

  so  6 balls of yarn later,  3 light green and 3 dark green.  i have enough left over hopefully for a brobee ami as well.  Smiley

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need Help reading this pattern pretty please with sugar on top? on: June 02, 2009 06:33:28 PM

alright..  so this pattern  is a little confusing for me..  I'm trying to make it for a 6 month old.
(the bodice part,  i'm putting my comments in brackets and in green )
Bodice: Back - Start at waistband, ch 91 (101,111,121) to measure 9 1/4 (10 1/4, 11 1/4, 12 1/4) inches.
(the 91 stitches come out to 18 inches..Huh)
1st row: Sc in 3rd ch from hook, * ch 2, skip next ch, sc in next ch. Repeat from *across. There are on row 45 (50, 55, 60) sps. Ch 4, turn.
(i get 45 spaces!)
2nd row (right side): Dc in first ch-2 sp, * ch 1, dc in next ch-2 sp. Repeat from * across, ending with ch 1, dc in turning space. Ch 2, turn.

3rd row: Sc in first ch-1 sp, * ch 2, sc in next ch-l sp. Repeat from * across. ending with ch 2, sc in 3rd ch of turning chain. Ch 3, turn. The 2nd and 3rd rows constitute the pattern. Continue to work in pattern until piece measures, ending with a dc row 1 1/2 (2, 2, 3) inches. Omit turning chain. Turn.

(Now from this part.. i'm confused..  looking at the picture of it,  it would appear doing it just one side.  but gives no directions to do so??)

To Shape Armholes:

1st row: (Sl st in next dc and in next ch) 3 times; sl st in next dc, sc in next sp, * ch 2, sc in next sp. Repeat from * to within last 5 ch-1 sps, ch 2, sc in next sp. Ch 2, turn.

2nd row: Dc in next sp (1 sp decreased at beginning of row), * ch 1, dc in next sp. Repeat from * across to within last 2 sps, holding back on hook last loop of each dc, make dc in each of next 2 sps, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (joint dc made). (1 sp decreased at end of row). Ch 2, turn.

3rd row: Sc in first ch-1 sp, * ch 2, sc in next ch-1 sp. Repeat from * across. There are on row 35 (40, 45. 50) sps. Ch 3, turn. Now work without decreasing until piece measures from first row of armhole shaping, ending with a dc row 3 (3 1/2, 4, 4) inches. Ch 2, turn.

To Shape Neck:

1st row: Sc in first sp, (ch 2. sc in next sp) 9 times. Ch 3, turn.

2nd row: Skip first sp, joint dc having a dc in each of the next 2 sps, * ch 1, dc in next sp. Repeat from * across, ending with dc in turning space. Ch 2. turn.

3rd row: Sc in next ch-1 sp, (ch 2, sc in next sp) 6 times. Ch 3, turn.

4th row: Repeat 2nd row.

5th row: Sc in first sp, (ch 2, sc in next sp) 3 times; sl st in next joint dc. Break off. Skip 14 (19, 24, 29) sps on first row of neck shaping, attach thread to next sp and work as follows: 1st row: Sc in same sp where thread was attached, * ch 2, sc in next sp. Repeat from * across, ending with sc in top of turning chain. Ch 3, turn. 2nd row: Dc in first sp, (ch 1, dc in next sp) 6 times; ch 1, joint dc over next 2 sps, dc in next sp. Turn. 3rd row: Sl St in the joint dc, sc in next ch-l sp, * ch 2, sc in next sp. Repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn. 4th row: Dc in first sp, (ch 1, dc in next sp) 3 times; ch 1, joint dc over next 2 sps, dc in next sp. Turn. 5th row: Repeat 3rd row. Break off at end of row.

Front: Work as for Back. Sew up right side seam.
(is this even possible when looking at these directions, that would make this 48 inches wide?  i;m so not reading this right..  )

Skirt: With wrong side facing and working along opposite side of starting chain, attach thread to first ch at left side edge.

1st row: Sc in same ch where thread was attached, * ch 2, sc in next ch. Repeat from * across. There are on row 180 (200, 220, 240) sps. Ch 3, turn.

Next row: * (Dc in next sp, ch 1) 8 (9, 10, 11) times; in next sp make (dc, ch 1) twice (1 sp increased). Repeat from * across. Ch 2, turn. Now work in pattern as on Bodice until 8 rows in all have been completed. Ch 1 at end of last row, join with a sl st in top of ch-3 at the beginning of the row. Turn.

Next row: Sc in the ch-1 sp just formed, * ch 2, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 2, sl st in first sc. Turn.

Following row: Sl st in first ch-2 sp, ch 4, * dc in next sp. ch 1. Repeat from * around, ending with dc in last ch-2 sp, ch 1, join with a sl st in 3rd ch of ch-4. Turn. Repeat last 2 rows until Skirt measures in all, ending with 3rd row of pattern 8 (9, 10, 11) inches, or length desired. Break off.

With right side of work facing, make sc closely along neck and armhole edges.

Side Placket:

1st row: With right side facing, sc closely around left side opening. Ch 1, turn.

2nd and 3rd rows: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. Break off at end of 3rd row.

Finishing: Sew 2 snap fasteners evenly spaced on placket. Sew ribbon around armhole and neck edges. Sew an 8-inch piece of ribbon at the point of each front and back shoulder and tie bows. Draw ribbon through first row of dc spaces on front of Bodice and tie ends in back of dress.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / wing pattern to crochet? on: July 10, 2008 11:36:58 AM
i hav e searched high and low,  so now i come to my friends here at craftster in search of a pattern for a angel type wing.

  let me give you a little background on why i need it.

  i know a lady who is in a wheelchair.  she is rather awesome and happens to loooove angels.  So for her birthday i told her i would make her any hat she wished.  She choose a hat with angels wings.  i can't find a wing pattern anywhere to crochet!

  So if you guys could help me out i'd loooove it.
