71  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I MADE A SAKURA CLUTCH!!! on: July 09, 2007 01:54:02 PM
Sorry for the caps, but I'm excited.  Serious props to yelley for the original sakura pattern.  I made this for my mother in law.  When my husband was a kid, both his parents were Navy and they lived in Japan for about 6 years.  Therefore, they  have a soft spot for all things Japanese.  It's kind of an odd size-not a clutch and not a purse, either.  I forgot to take a picture of the lining, but it's kind of a taupe color.  I so appreciate that yelley gave the pattern for the cherry blossoms and inspired me to make this.  I hope I did yelley's pattern justice!  My mother in law absolutely loved it!!!

Here's the front

Here's the back with the cherry blossoms-this one kind of washed out the colors

Here's a truer representation of the colors
72  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Can anyone translate? on: July 04, 2007 09:58:49 PM
Ok, I saw this on the knitting completed projects board.  I can't knit to save my life (I've tried to teach myself more than once and it's never worked out).  I know that some people on her can knit and crochet, so I was wondering if anyone knows how I could do a similar pattern in crochet?  Here's the thread and the pattern is on page 3:


Any help is greatly appreciated!!
73  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Love Hurts and True Romance on: July 02, 2007 10:34:41 AM
Ok, so.  This is the first time I've ever done anything on an actual canvas.  The first one is a Kurt Halsey stencil that I got from stencilry.  I nixed the original words that went with it because the girl seemed really sad to me, so I picked something different.  Also, both of these are for my sister and she likes that kind of thing.  So, here's the kurt halsey one.

And this one is because True Romance is one of my sister's all-time favorite movies (mine too!).  I just googled to get the image and did some business in photoshop to stencilize it (totally not a word, but eh).  Then I cut out the foreground and glued it to the canvas.  I used a sharpie to color in all the black after I painted the foreground lavender.  Then I very lightly brushed on the turquoise color.  The words were freehanded.  It's one of my favorite lines from the movie.  There were quite a lot of steps involved, but I'm really happy with how this one turned out.

74  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Birthday presents for mom on: July 01, 2007 10:12:38 PM
My mom's birthday is July 6th and we happen to be going to visit on that very day (we live in Tennessee and she lives in Mississippi with all the rest of my family).  Anyway, I made these things for her.  The little bag, I kind of altered a pattern for a clutch purse to make it smaller.  It's meant to hold all her cards and cash and whatnot.  I had to handsew all the lining (what a p.i.t.a.) and I scavenged the snap from one of my daughter's old purses.  The lining is actually a double thickness and I cut it from an old pair of pants that don't fit anymore.  I put 2 extra layers plus a layer of felt to reinforce where the snaps are so it won't stretch the crochet.  The butterfly came from a pattern on crochetpatterncentral and I plan on putting it one of those frames that's 2 pieces of glass sandwiched together.  Whaddya think?

The front:

the snap

The lining:

For some reason, some of the parts are backwards.  I don't know what I did wrong, but I don't think it's super noticeable.

My husband and I collaborated on this shirt for our 4 year old son.  It was my idea and I made the stencils and did the words (had to freehand so they look kind of jacked up) and my husband airbrushed Master Shake.  Sebastian loves this shirt!!!

Haha!! This is his rocking out pose!

76  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Stupid question? on: June 30, 2007 06:39:26 PM
Ok, so I've been crocheting for a good few years now.  A question I've always wondered about is this.  If a pattern doesn't specify, when they say "left side" and "right side", do they mean my left?  Or the left if the piece has the good side facing?  Or the left of the person who would wear it?  I'm mostly asking because I did this really nice butterfly for my mom using this pattern


and it seems like some of the stuff came out backwards or something.  I did it as if left side meant the left side if it was turned with the good side facing, which would be my right.  Now, I'm thinking it actually meant my left.  Geez, I'm just confusing myself more now.  Any insight, anyone?
77  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Sebastian on a Shirt on: June 29, 2007 11:50:21 PM
So, this is my son Sebastian.  My hubby did some photoshop magic on a picture of him and then made a stencil and airbrushed it onto a shirt. 

Here's the original pic (heh, he was being spiderman, which explains the pose and he had been sick for a couple days, which explains the dark circles under his eyes):

And a couple of pics of the finished shirt:

78  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Queen Head Wrap a la pinkyrican on: June 24, 2007 11:52:38 AM
Here's the head wrap I made for my daughter.  I got the pattern from a post by pinkyrican.  Here's the original post


Oh, and pinkyrican-to answer your last question, I did make it the same size to fit her.  You're right about it not mattering much because you can just tie it tighter to fit.  Again, thanks a million for the pattern.  My daughter wore it to church this morning and I had 4 people stop and ask us where we got it cause they loved it so much.  When I told them I made it, they were all like "Wow!  It's so pretty, etc. etc."  Don't mind the sloppy way I tied it.  My daughter was hurrying me up so she could watch a movie!!

79  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / World's Heaviest Baby Blanket IMG Heavy on: June 16, 2007 08:38:51 AM
So, I made this for my son, Dorian.  He'll be 4 months old on the 18th.  It took me the larger part of my pregnancy to finish, but I managed to get it done before he made his appearance!  It seriously weighs about 10 lbs or more.  He won't be able to carry it unassisted till he's about 5  Grin  And, just for kicks, I included some pics of Dorian and blankie together.  That last one is the first time he pushed himself up on his elbows like that and he was mightily impressed, which is why his eyes are so bugged out.  This is my last post with pics for at least a couple days, I swear!  I'm just so excited to have a place where I can show people the things I've made and have them understand just how much love and hard work went into it.  Thanks for looking!!

80  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The Happy Couple--IMG Heavy on: June 15, 2007 02:56:43 PM
This is a gift I made for my sister-in-law and her soon-to-be husband.  They're getting married in September.  My SIL's wedding flowers are going to be daisies, hence the bride's bouquet and veil.  I modified this a bit from a pattern I bought on etsy from NeedleNoodles (changed the veil, added the bouquet, added the ball and chain).  It's called Lil' Spookies.  I mailed them on Monday and I wish they'd hurry up and get there.
