31  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Little Lamb on: August 08, 2008 10:13:01 PM
I entered this in the Amigurumi Toss Event on Ravelympics. It only took me a couple of hours to complete and I love how he turned out.
The pattern is Lionbrand little Lamb

The colour is a bit off as he is more maroon than red.
He's going to join a jacket, hat and booties set for a work colleague, all done in the same colours.
32  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Macro Photo Challenge - The street where you live on: April 21, 2008 07:00:52 AM

33  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Moss Stitch Bag on: March 24, 2008 03:17:01 PM
I got a lovely ball of wool from a charity shop. Soft, mauve and a little fluffy.
I then knitted it out with another thread of yarn, on big needles using moss stitch.
I asked the ladies at a the craft evening I run for ideas on what to do with it. We decided that it should be made into a bag.

Here it is:

The inside was made form a piece cut from a nighty that I bought ages ago from a charity shop. i even managed to encorporate the nighty's pocket.

This gorgeous flower was crocheted by one of my crafting friends. She had it in her stash and it fitted the bag really well. Thank you!! Cheesy

And I used fused plastic as interfacing so it keeps it's shape. It's a very recycled bag. only new item in it was the thread.

What do you think?
34  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / your opinions and help on: February 26, 2008 04:55:05 AM
I've made a couple of cards for mothers day.
They are handpainted and then cut out. Then they're stuckonto white papper and coloured paper.
So do you like them?... helpful comments welcome.
Also I need some suggestions as to the best way/colour etc of putting the writing on the front.
I don't have any fancy stickers or card making tools. I have some different colours of paper, some glue, some paints and a printer.

Anyway these are the cards:

35  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mobile Phone Sleeping bag/cosy (Tunisian Crochet) on: February 12, 2008 02:05:24 PM
Sometimes called afghan crochet, Tunisian crochet is usually done with a long hook that has a bit on the end so your stitches don't fall off.

Anyway I don't have one of those hooks.....
So I picked up a normal crochet hook and my readers digest guide to all things crafty and taught myself how to do Tunisian crochet.

So this is what I made:

It's a mobile cosy or as I call it a mobile sleeping bag. Can you tell what the logo is?

I've used various different stitches: Basic (knit), purl, crossed and stocking. The logo is all done in stocking.

All snuggled up.

So that was fun and now I need to get a proper tunisian hook.
36  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ribbed Newsboy Hat on: January 28, 2008 03:38:12 AM
I am so chuffed with this project. Grin
I started it the other night and it didn't take long to finish. I learnt two new crochet stitches and I've made myself something that I love and will wear lots.

It's a free pattern - Ribbed Newsboy Hat

Top-love the ribbing effect


Action Shot

So what do you think?

37  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / popcorn headband on: January 22, 2008 10:14:58 AM
Been going a little Headband Mad. Just had a go at Calorimetry and then just had to make some thing for my DD. Couldn't  find a knitted one I liked that was different from calorimetry, but similar in shape.
So I threw together this Popcorn One.

How's that then?
38  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I did it. Fair Isle fingerless glove. on: September 28, 2007 02:19:13 PM
Got the fair Isle pattern from here.

Colour is wrong, should have used flash.

Inside and with flash, so actual colour

So how did I do?

39  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Piggy slippers for DD on: September 22, 2007 09:49:33 AM
I found this sock pattern on knitty that just uses 2 needle so I thought I would give it a go. Half way through the first one my DD caught me and asked if it could be for her. Sucker that I am I said Yes, but decided it would more useful to make her slippers rather than socks. The result. Off course slipper 2 is better than 1 as I refined the pattern

Pics could be better, but couldn't get DD to hang around long enough. Comments welcome.

One thing though. What exactly does w&t mean in the pattern? I'm sure t means turn, but when I did it I got holes see....

How do I prevent this?

40  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / American McGees Alice on: September 09, 2007 04:16:09 PM
My first crocheted doll. I made this for an Alice in Wonderland swap last month. It was my first ever attempt at a doll. No pattern. All clothes removeable Yeah!

The only non-crocheted part. knitted skirt.

Alice's embroidered face. she's meant to look a bit sullen and dark like the character. Her hair is a bit Bob Marleyish, but it was my first ever Home spun yarn, plied with metalic red thread.

Alice's pockets.

What do you think?
