21  My Practice Circle Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Hadassah on: July 29, 2008 09:06:19 AM
So I decided that I needed some skirts that would be twirly when dancing since I'm now taking a dance class. I didn't want to ruin the good fabric (that I don't have yet. Lol) so I used some thrift store fabric I got for fifty cents. The pattern on it is a little too wild for my tastes but since it was just a practice, I'm pretty pleased. I wish it was a tad longer, but because of the amount of fabric I had, this is the length it will be. The feel of the material is heaven! So comfy! I now cannot wait to make the next one! This one is so twirl that I can only imagine how twirly the next LONGER one will be! A big thanks to Pink_Dinosaur for her awesome tutorial!

Here it is without my twirly-ness.

And here are the twirlies! Sorry about the lighting and the lack of focus. It's hard to use the self timer.  Tongue

And here it is while I sit on the floor and it's all spread out.

I would love some comments and/or tips for the real one that I do!

22  Oceanic Summer Swim Bag in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Hadassah on: June 19, 2008 07:49:54 AM
For this crochet challenge, I decided to make a Swim bag (also known as a small beach bag). I just barely finished it in time... The colors really remind me of the beach, and overall, I'm pretty pleased with the result. Usually these type of things just don't work out for me...  Tongue Anyways, enough chatter.
Here it is next to my swim wear to show how it matches!  Grin

And the inside...It has a little pocket for sunscreen (I'm so happy, it was the perfect size!) and it also has a little tab with a metal ring on it for my keys so they don't get lost while I swim and such.

All closed up and ready to go!

And here it is hanging on the door so you can kind of get a feel for the shape.

Well, that's all. It was a fun challenge, even though silly me procrastinated until the last minute. I'm in love with the bag and I'm happy I decided to join the challenge, just so I could get back into the swing of crocheting again! What do you think?

23  A couple pairs of fingerless gloves in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hadassah on: January 28, 2008 01:40:32 PM
Well, the title says it all. I made the silver ones a while back but just finished the black ones. Next time, I'm going to make them a little longer.

They're very warm.  Wink

24  Magic Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Hadassah on: January 16, 2008 06:41:29 PM
This is my first try on the "magic wallet". I wanted to see if I could do it so I could maybe use heavier fabric for a different one. Maybe some leather or something. I used some old cut up shorts that I had for the fabric and put eight pieces of interfacing in between the fabric. The only ribbon I had was pink so I used what I had. To make it look not quite so plain, I used a sharpie and wrote my favorite Bible verses. I'm really pleased with the results. Now, once I get some better fabric, I'll go ahead and make one a little sturdier. This one is okay, but a tad but flimsy.
On to the pictures.




Another shot of the inside

That's all, I like it. Comments?

25  An etched candy dish in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Hadassah on: December 02, 2007 07:00:28 PM
okay, I posted earlier with etching projects but I did another etching project. I did this candy dish because I was in the mood to do something crafty that didn't require a lot of thinking. My mom and I came up with the theme. The glass was actually a vase that those huge flower bouquets come in. I knew we would never use it again because it's too short and wide so I decided to turn it into a candy dish. The "reese's" part kind of messed up and I'm not sure why. I put a lot of etching stuff on and I left it on for about 7 minutes. Does anybody know why it looks like it was scratched off? Thanks.



And the reese's

Sorry about the photos. For some reason I can't get etched glass to do well when photographed. I put construction paper in to help but I don't think it did much.

26  Etched drinking glasses in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Hadassah on: December 02, 2007 12:58:07 PM
Here are a few cups that I have etched. These are my first ones to do and I think I'm addicted.  Grin I really like how they turned out and I'm already planning more to do. I've had the etching stuff for a long time but I have been to afraid to try it because of all the warnings about burning your skin and stuff...  Tongue I finally got over it and just used rubber gloves and eye protection. I had no problems.
Palm tree glasses (for my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas)

This one is for me to keep. It says "got milk".

This one is sort of an inside joke between me and one of my friends from the video game "halo 3". It says "My other car is a mongoose" just in case you can't read from the bad photo. This glass is also a Christmas gift as well.

What do you think?

27  crocheted kitty and cat house in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Hadassah on: October 29, 2007 02:07:50 PM
I've been crocheting yet again for my eight year old niece.  Grin
This is her Christmas gift. I just finished it. Well, sort of... The poor kitty doesn't have any eyes yet because haven't found the perfect pair of buttons. I made a little portable play kitty house too so she can carry it around with her.

Now I just have to figure out what to make for her little brother and sister...

28  Hat with ear-flaps~~~New hat with pics and a pattern! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hadassah on: October 25, 2007 11:53:33 AM
I just made this hat in honor of the cool weather finally making an appearance! My ears always get cold so I decided to try my hand at a hat with ear-flaps. What do you think? Is it okay or not? It is my own pattern because I'm not very good at following written out patterns unless they are written by me.  Wink
Make-shift model (a turned over candle with a water bottle on top of that and a basket on the very top)

On the Counter

Hope the pattern works for you!
On my head



Ok, Here is the pattern that was promised. I made it sooner than I expected to make it.

                                   Ear-Flap Hat
                                (Basic Hat Shape)
Round 1-   Chain 5 and join into circle
Round 2-   Ch 2 and Half-Double-Crochet (HDC) in middle circle

Round 3-   Ch 2 and HDC in each stitch around (you should have 20 HDCs) join.
Round 4-   Ch 2 and HDC 2 in 1st stitch, 1 in 2nd st. continue this all the way around. Join     (32 sts around)
Round 5-   Ch 2 and HDC 1 in 1st st, 2 in 2nd, 1 in 3rd and so on and so forth (all the way around until you have 48) join
Round 6-   Ch 2 and HDC 1 in 1st, 2nd and 3rd stitches then HDC 2 in forth st. Repeat for whole round. (60 st) join

Round 7-    Ch 2 HDC in each st around (60 st) join
Round 8-18   Ch 1 and HDC 1 in each st around (60 st) dont join keep going around. (That means starting from round 8, HDC around until you have done 10 rounds) TIE OFF

Row 1-      Ch 12 then turn
Row 2-       HDC in each stitch then ch 2 and turn
Row 3-       HDC in each stitch then ch 2 and turn
Row 4-       HDC 1 in 1st four sts then skip one and continue to end of row. Ch 2 and turn
Row 5-      HDC in each stitch except 2nd and 2nd to last (skip those because we are trying to make a triangle type of look) ch 2 and turn
Row 6-        HDC in each st on row, ch 2 and turn continue to skip 2nd and 2nd to last sts until you have only 2 st left. Tie off

Attach ears where you want them. Make sure you have 2 ear-flaps

Between the ear-flaps in the front of the hat, HDC as many as it takes from one ear to the next. Make sure you dont connect the section to the ear-flaps. Do as many as it takes and then add trim, pom-poms or braids or all of them! Admire your good-looking hat!

30  Hat with brim in Crochet: Completed Projects by Hadassah on: October 11, 2007 12:07:27 PM
I crocheted this hat a few months ago... I didn't really follow a pattern though I did try! I started with a pattern but my yarn was to thick and my hook was to big so I just started over with an image in my head of what I wanted and hands willing to create!
Hat on my head~

On the floor so you can see the underside~

Hat top~

Hat on my bear~

This was my first time making a hat with a brim, I've made winter hats but thats all...
