I'm a high school teacher and I would love crocheted bookmarks (most teachers are book lovers), coasters or even tree ornaments. Smiley

You just gave me a brilliant idea!!  I'm going to make her a scarf like planned.  Then I'll have my daughter, (who's trying to learn to crochet and can chain like a mad woman! lol) make her a bookmark.  Then it can be a special gift from her student as well!!

Maybe a beanie for the male teacher.  I know there was a really quick tutorial on here for some cute ones! 

Thank you all for your help!  I'm thinking I'm gonna do a scarf and found some really cute patterns on Lion Brand

I was just thinking, I'm gonna have to get something for my daughter's 3 teachers for Christmas. I remember last year asking my daughter what all they got and it seemed like the same things over and over again. Coffee gift baskets, hot chocolate gift baskets, candles, etc. This year I want to give them something different. Something they don't always get. I thought about crocheting them something up. But what?! What are some good, unique, ideas for a teacher gift?
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Meet My Brother! on: October 20, 2009 03:07:33 PM

My brother's long time girlfriend moved 3 hours away to college this fall.  She's been really missing my bro.  I decided I'd be nice, and even though he's not as good as the real thing, make a mini version of my brother for her when she misses him the most! 

Here's the real deal

So what do you think??

The thing I'm most disappointed in is his hair!  I'll need to figure out a better way to do amigurumi hair and facial hair.  I just don't like having all the loops showing. KWIM  Maybe I'll have a bit more time next time.  I have a few projects that need to be done by a certain time, but I wanted to hurry up and do this first.  Anyway, how do you like my bro!

Egads, it's bright and colorful!

At least it seems pretty friendly!

My first freehand amigurumi!!  I'm pretty proud of the cute little guy! BTW, he's supposed to be a bug.  I made him from my baby girl, we always call her Catey Bug, so I figured a bug was perfect for her!  Here she is loving her new companion!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: My First Purse!!! on: August 04, 2008 03:58:47 PM
I love this purse, do you have any type of pattern you followed??

I basically used this pattern here, except made it smaller!

I modified it a bit and didn't make the pocket.  I only made parts A, B, and C.  Then for the strap I did the 4 x's the width you want then fold in half, iron, then fold edges to center crease and sew.  It was really easy.

As for the quilting, I used a layer of batting behind the front fabric and just quilted the lines into the top (front) fabric and the batting.  Haven't figured out how i'd quilt the inside, but the only way i'm thinking would take a LOT of work!

Thank you everyone for your comments!!

I can't tell - are there no pockets inside?

If you can live with $30, I would rather see that than $15. It's handmade, for goodness' sake!

If you add pockets, you can charge even more.

No I didn't add any pockets because it was honestly a trial run that turned out really well!  I was thinking $20, so I'm glad to see I wasn't too far off!
