11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question about how to make this hat on: January 18, 2009 12:55:34 PM
There is a really neat crochet hat I just saw on Free People.

Here is the link to it.


If you go to "view more images' you can see close ups.

It's crochet, and looks fairly easy. I know how to make slouch hats, and it appears that those are just puffs.

My question is, how would you go about giving the spaces in between? Would you just do a puff and then do a few single crochet stitches and then do another puff? if so, how many? and are they actually puffs, or are they something else that look similar? if so, what?

Thanks for helping! I would love to try to make a hat similar to this!

12  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Pumpkin Carving.... on: November 02, 2008 05:29:46 PM
So, for Halloween the boy and I opted to stay in and carve the pumpkins we got several weeks ago (living in a college town, Halloween tends not to be a bit less fun... too many half naked drunk people)...

Mine is a tree pattern that I made from a stencil I found @ stencilry.org (it was supposed to have a swing, but I accidentally messed it up and had to cut it out) and the birds were a last minute free form.

My boyfriend's is AC/DC, and that's Angus Young underneath. He was REALLY excited about his pumpkin.

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / How should I hang this old barn window? on: September 29, 2008 10:17:21 AM
My brother-in-law is a farmer, and after they tore down an old family house/barn, they had a wonderful little supply of barn windows.

I asked her if I could have one, and she gladly gave it to me.

I want to use it as a photo frame in come capacity, but I'm scared to hang it. One of the panes is already broken (she found me the least broken of the bunch) and I'm scared that if I don't hang it properly that it will fall and break more of them.

I've never done anything with picture hanging hardware other than picture frames that already had hooks attached, so I suppose what I'm asking is what I should buy/what should I use to turn the window into a photo frame.

Thanks in advance for your help!
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I'm a Gin and Tonic girl, myself. on: September 26, 2008 10:27:20 AM
I was so excited to find these wonderful little liquor tags! The set of 3 came from Germany, and they say Gin, Rhum (rum), and Whiskey. They're enamel on a lightweight metal, which makes them really comfortable to wear.

Also, they're so teensy! They measure about an inch and one half.

Let me know what you think! I really love feedback!

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / ...and then while I'm away I'll write home every day... on: September 26, 2008 10:23:22 AM
Love letters are a lost art. There is just something inherently nostalgic about them.

I absolutely adore these letter lockets. This is the second one I'm made, and there is just something wonderful about the idea of giving someone a little love letter that they can carry around with them everywhere (without it getting crinkled up, of course!)

Let me know what you think. I love to get feedback about what I'm doing!

16  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Workout/Getting into Shape Motivational Swap? on: August 26, 2008 08:31:17 AM
I just recently started a workout regemine (1 hour after work/class, M-F) but I'm wanting to keep myself motivated in any way I can!

I was thinking it would be fun to do a "Get in Shape" related swap to help other people in the same situation keep motivated also.

Neat ideas for swap items could be fitness/food journals, cute headbands (for keeping the hair out of your face), or other little motivational stuff.

I know I could make all that stuff for myself, but I think knowing that someone else is taking the time to make something for you to keep you motivated would be more likely to actually... you know... motivate you.

Any interest?
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sustainable OOAK Fabric Wristlet with key and birds on: May 14, 2008 05:38:03 PM
I made this out of new and vintage fabrics. It was really fun to make. It's a pretty easy technique too (solvy and fabric bits) but I'm starting to try to branch out from your basic fabric cuff.

Hope you all like it!

18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / button and apple bead earrings on: January 19, 2008 07:56:30 PM
These are my new favorite thing to make! They're so fun!

The button earrings are so easy to make, and the apple earrings are my favorites!

I got lucky getting the apple beads. They were an awesome thrift store find!

Sorry about the white box on all the photos!
anyway, I hope you like them!

19  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Hummus Recipes? on: January 07, 2008 10:23:45 AM
I have recently gained a new love of chick peas. I know is sounds silly, but they're so tasty!

Anyway, I decided to buy a can at the grocery store (75 cents!) and I split the can into two jars. One I want to use for salad and such, but the other I think I want to make into hummus...

I know the regular recipe is just to put a can in the blender with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and a little water, but I was wondering if anyone knew of other recipes.

I want to try to make it myself b/c it's SO expensive compared to a can of chick peas, and I would just look up recipes, but I find that asking for ideas from people who have made it/tried it already tends to yield better results!

Anyway, suggestions would be MUCH appreciated!
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / another cute yoked top from a men's shirt! on: September 15, 2007 12:07:21 PM
This photo makes me look pudgy, but i felt like it was the best one for showing the whole outfit... I would have taken it standing up, except that the kitchen is currently flooded w/ light, and so the photos aren't working well.. So, living room it is!!

This is a similar recon to the last one (ie. they both have yokes) except that this one is the v shaped yoke, and it came from the front instead of the back.

I actually got the idea from Ladyjane, since she mentioned that the last one looked like a built by wendy top. So I looked at the website, and I liked the way one of the tops looked, so i worked out how to do that cut of yoke... it was actually really easy, and I liked how it let me cut out the tiny "AE" that was stitched in without cutting out a bunch of fabric or compromising the shape much.

I really like this one, even if I look like I REALLY like cake... but, then again, I really DO like cake... Smiley

Enough talk, here's the photo!
