1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Seaside Fairy dress from Crochet Garden on: July 19, 2008 11:21:30 AM
Just wanted to post a pic of my little monster angel in her new dress.  And if you wonder why I call her a monster you'll have to read the blog post (http://aleryan.com/?p=42) about this photo shot.  (shameless plug  Grin ) On to the picture:

I got this pattern from Crochet Garden (http://www.crochetgarden.com)  It's crocheted with Aunt Lydia's size 3 cotton thread and the flowers were crocheted with DMC floss.  I like that this pattern works up in one piece, there are no seams.  Hope you enjoy it!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / washing question?? on: April 03, 2008 06:48:23 PM
Hi there!

I'm making a baby dress to enter in the county fair.  I started it awhile ago and am just finishing it tonight.  It's not dirty but I want to wash it because the yarn I bought last week is noticable shinier than the older yarn.  I'm using bernet baby (fingering) yarn.  How do I wash it?  Do I use regular detergent?  Do I pop it in the dryer or let it air dry flat?  I've been crocheting 20 years and have never had to wash anything because I've never kept anything.  LOL!  Thanks for your help!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / need feedback on first stencil on: March 23, 2008 09:15:21 PM
Hi!  I made my first stencil (or print for silkscreen.  Haven't decided which yet.) and I was hoping to get some comments on what you think.  I was inpspired by two other yoga t-shirts I saw.  One said, "Yoga is for Posers" and the other was "People who Practice Yoga are Twisted."  I think I thought of the quote for this stencil, unless I saw it somewhere and don't remember.  If I have fun making this into a shirt I will probably make some more with the other quotes on them.  Thanks for the feedback and the all the inspiration these boards have created!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / pics of baby blanket on: October 17, 2006 11:42:34 PM
Hi there,

I just wanted to show off my newest finished project.  The pattern is page 91 from the Leisure Arts book "Our best Baby Afghans."  If you want more info I blogged this blanket here: http://aleryan.livejournal.com/.  Thanks for looking!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sun Fairy Halter set on: October 02, 2006 10:11:04 PM
Okay, I had to show off.  I made this halter set for my daughter and here she is modeling it:
I got the pattern from Crochet Garden (http://www.crochetgarden.com) and it came in sizes
6 mos to 5t.  The set came with a pattern for the halter, hat and sweater.  I think my gauge was a little off on the halter because when I tested the gauge for the sweater I had to go up one more hook size.  So, the sweater fits great and the halter could stand to be a tad bigger.  Oh, well, it's starting to get cool anyway.  Thanks for looking!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Butt Bow anyone? on: August 25, 2006 09:46:57 PM
Hi there!

My friend is going to be the maid of honor at her mother's wedding.  Ever since she was a little girl her and her mom have a running gag that her mom was going to dress her in a dress with a hideously large bow on the back, they call it a "butt bow."  Jess (my friend) now wants to make this bow (not the dress, just the bow) and wear it at the wedding.  What she wants is something similar to this: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V2849=x&TI=20003&page=4 Does anyone know of a tut on making a bow like this?  I would appreciate any and all help.  Thanks!

7  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / McCalls 3724 on: August 08, 2004 11:53:26 PM
Hi all!  I just finished my first pair of pants.  I used microfiber fabric I got at Wallymart for $2.00 a yard ($4.00 total) and just had to buy a zipper, a front closure and some interfacing.  I made view "A" from McCalls pattern 3724 and I didn't do any alerations on them, just the size for my hip measurement.  They didn't come in at the knee at the knee and flare out like in the picture, but oh well.  I'm really happy with the way they turned out and can't wait to make a second pair with the black microfiber I bought also.  Here they are:


and here's a link to the pattern:

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / face mask on: August 08, 2004 12:33:47 PM
Hello!  I need help.  I have a friend who plays a court jester at children's parties.  Lately he's decided that face makeup is too costly and timeconsuming.  He wants me to make a mask, kinda like spiderman wears, that I will either paint or insert different colored panels to match what he usually does with make up.  Are there any suggestions on how to make a tight fitting face mask?  Thanks!

9  COOKING / Dessert / help with birthday cake on: July 12, 2004 12:30:05 AM
Hi there.  I want to make a fun birthday cake for my son's first birthday.  The one I like is a teddy bear holding an ice cream cone and then there are cupcakes baked into ice cream cones and frosted to look like ice cream.  I can't find the directions online.  Are there any other suggestions for cakes?  It needs to feed at about 20 people.
