    February 1992
  1. I LOVE THAT! I'm a purse-aholic myself! I just bought myself a tote bag with little purses all over it. How cute is that! I wish I had that pattern. I'd better go looking for it. Great job!
  2. I made this stuffed giraffe and matching fleece blanket for my minister who had a baby girl in July. I also made a matching giraffe card. This was so much fun to do.
  3. I tried it! This isn't a good picture. I'll try to take a better one later. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/crochetedsweatshirtnov2008.jpg I love it. I wore it to work and everyone thought I purchased it that way. LOL:cheer I'd like to try a white one with white yarn trim Thanks for looking!
  4. Has anyone out here made Tricksie the Witch pattern? I purchased the pattern off of Leisure Arts website about 4 weeks ago. I'm getting ready to start her this weekend. I swore I saw a picture out here that some one had made her a couple of years ago and the only one I could find was one made from thread. Am I wrong? LOL I just wanted to know if it was an easy pattern to do? And again...I love seeing pics.
  5. Thank you for that pattern link. I never thought about curving the bottom of the jacket in front. I think I really like that. I'm ready to start experimenting with my sweatshirt. I hope it turns out great! It might be a great gift idea for my mom and sister! Still if anyone has pics of ones they've made--I'd still love to see. I get my most inspiration from seeing others finished projects.
  6. but I want to see pictures of finished sweatshirts. Someone out there has to have made some! I'm going to crochet directly onto my sweatshirt.
  7. I did a search out there for crocheting on sweatshirts. I found a couple of threads, but no pictures of any that our members have done. Have you crocheted trim onto a sweatshirt?? I'd love to see your finished shirt or jacket. Please post pictures!! I've purchased my shirt, have it washed and I cut off the bottom cuff and the wrist cuffs. I need to prepare the raw edges next. I just don't know where to go from there and don't really want to buy a book. Thanks, Teresa :clap:clap:hook:hook:hook:clap:clap:clap
  8. Thanks everyone! I can't wait to give it to her. Her Birthday is today.
  9. I posted two baby blankets I made from fleece and crocheted the trim. Here is one that I made for my friend who has a birthday coming up this month. I think it turned out really nice. I kind of like it better than doing the tied edges. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/sonjasblanket20084.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/sonjasblanket2008.jpg She loves the Americana stuff. I think this blanket will be perfect and it won't be a knick knack that she'll have to dust. Thanks for looking!
  10. I'm going to buy the punch next time Hobby Lobby has 40% off again. I want to add that scalloped punch to my collection. Thank you for all the compliments everyone!
  11. Stenciled template? For my card? No I used this link... http://laurenm.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2008/02/05/create-your-own-onesie-card-tutorial-and-important-note-please-read/ I don't own the punch that makes the scallopy trim, so just improvised with some stuff I had around the house. I think it looks good. :-)
  12. I know you guys have seen a ton of these, but it's been so long since I've crocheted and/or posted anything out here. I just had to share. I think they turned out pretty cute. I made these for a baby shower I have been invited to on Sept 7. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/Crochet%20Projects/babyblanketedgingforamanda2008.jpg with matching baby card that I made .... http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/Crochet%20Projects/blanketandcardforamandahabereraug20.jpg Second blanket--Not sure if I will give both blankets or hold one back to have on hand for another shower... http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/Crochet%20Projects/babyblanketaugust20084.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a36/yarnlover66/Crochet%20Projects/babyblanketaugust20082.jpg Thanks for looking!
  13. Thank you! Those are great ideas! Time to get working on something!
  14. Do you have any quick easy Easter ideas that I could crochet and possibly fill with candy for my co-workers this year? I've done the bunnies that slip over a plastic egg 2 years ago. I must not have done anything last year. BUT if you have any quick easy ideas--even if they aren't candy filled I'd apprecate it. I've searched but I thought maybe someone sees something I don't. Nothing catches my eye. It doesn't even have to be crocheted. It could be paper craft or something. Help!
