  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!
  15. I love those! I wish I had more time to make some of those as gifts. What are you going to fill them with??

    moo cow!

    Where is the pattern? Bean Bag Buddies? Where can I find that at?
  17. I saw it too. I even told all the gals in my office to watch for your sweater! They were so excited for you too. They said they felt like they had a connection to the show just because I gave them a heads up. I know that George's mom might crochet and knit, but I wish they would have had her crocheting. They always show knitting! lol

  19. Your snowman is very cute. Where do you live in KY? I will be in Paducah area in May and again in September.

    Your turtles are so much prettier than the original pattern! You are doing an awesome thing!
  21. another question. My pattern calls for 1.75 oz skeins/200 yards. On one of the websites it says they carry 1.75 oz skeins, BUT they are 145 yards. How is that? Does that mean I need to buy more skeins than what my pattern really asks for??
  22. Wow. I'm out checking all these sites out. I'm going to have to bookmark them. Wish I could find the yarn I want in a store, so I didn't have to pay shipping. Thank you for all your help!
  23. Where do you buy your yarn on line? Who do you recommend? I'm kind of bummed. I went tonight to get some yarn at Hobby Lobby or at Joann's and they have really shrunk their yarn section. I want to make the little short sleeved sweater jacket in the latest Hooked on Crochet and it calls for sport weight yarn. HL had almost nothing and Joann's sport weight was all baby colors. I didn't want to look like I was wearing a baby afghan! LOL Has anyone made this sweater that is in the HOOKED ON CROCHET this month? Thanks!
  24. Understandable. I just want you to know how awesome it is. I think I could figure it out if I just played around with some yarn.
