1  "Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat" in Blue-Lavender in Crochet: Completed Projects by SilverRain on: May 27, 2010 11:37:24 PM
It's been so long since I've last posted anything on Crafster! So here I am, thinking of posting this up. The first time I tried to knit, that didn't work out too well...but then I saw this really cute crochet hat by ArrghMatey, and that had me thinking I could try to crochet, and see how I like it.

This is my very first crocheted item, and I'm very happy with how it turned out! There are certainly mistakes here and there and I'm sure I could work on my tension a bit, but other than that, I love it! Crochet is actually really fun, and in my opinion, a lot easier than knitting. The pattern was very easy to follow once I got going,  so I recommend it to all beginner's like me, who want to take a stab at it. I'd also recommend keeping a strict count of how many stitches you've made, since that's probably why I had to redo serveral rows a few times.

3  The Before Christmas Hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SilverRain on: December 29, 2007 03:38:46 PM
Well, not really before Christmas. It's kinda late to post, but I couldn't get the pictures until now.

I have a friend at school that is moving, and therefore I won't see her at school again after winter break. Thus so, I decided on making a hooded sweater for her as a going away present! I used the McCall's 4261 pattern for a zippered jacket, and altered it just a bit. Overall, I'm rather pleased with the result! I'm still new to sewing, so I learned a lot from this project. My sister modeled it for me, because it just doesn't look as good on me, as on her  Tongue

The hood here is lined with a yellow knit jersey. It took me a while to figure out how to sew it *sigh*

If you look closely, you can see the little pleats I put into the sleeve!

Hopfully, she won't be able to pick out my "beginner's mistakes", attatching the hood proved more difficult than I thought. Oh well.
What do you guys think? feedback is much appreciated!  Cheesy

^ this site has TONS of great patterns...for FREE! The only thing you have to do is sign up, and you can download as many patterns from them as you want.

Try to search for the "Steffi" and "Hikaru" jackets, you could probably alter to them to fit your satisfaction. Though I'd recommend using "Hikaru", because that's a DEFINATE military jacket.


I hope that helped!

5  Puffy! er...shorts! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SilverRain on: July 04, 2007 02:52:46 PM
Haha I've been on craftster for a while, 3 months maybe?  Huh ahh well, so I've finally decided to make something worthy of putting up! This was the first thing I've ever sewn. BOY did it take a while! You don't want to know how many times I've had to use the seam ripper...not to mention, my mother said the pace I was sewing was the slowest she's ever seen. XD well, at least she said it jokingly! I used the pattern from Burda Style (gosh I love that site! I practically downloaded everything!) Free patterns, YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY GO WRONG WITH THAT! But here's the link to the pattern if you guys want to make it. I found it fairly easy to make...after countless times looking over it of course ^_^'''


I made an extra belt to go with it, just to add a more personal touch Tongue This is closest to the actual colour

a closeup of the pleats...it's kinda hard to tell actually....oops >_<''' but at least you can see the belt I made here! (was great practice *cough* for sewing straight lines ^_-)

and a closeup of the gathering...that's what it's called right?   Grin

I used this fabric called sport cotton poplin. It was really cheap too! $1.77/yrd Cheesy
Thank you for looking! Feedback is more than appreciated ^_^
