  1. Beautiful idea!!!! I usually make them with a drawstring top never thought to make one with a flap lol.. Great Job!
  2. If you are using a cotton blend fabric use salt , if it is a wool or acrylic then the vinegar works the best. or if you was it the first time alone use oxyclean ( or generic version ) and the color will not run after that. ( I use that on my tye die stuff for the first wash with no problems) good luck!!
  3. There are a great bunch of tips and recipes for stiffeners here : http://www.crochetmemories.com/crochet8.php
  4. I do other jewelry making crafts as well and I get most of my supplies from : http://www.firemountaingems.com thier prices are really good when you order more items. what I love about that is you do not have to order all of the same item to get multiples pricing. everything on thier site counts twards the order size. and believe me it is easy to find 50 items for me to get a great price lol
  5. I found a lot of links to patterns here. http://www.myhq.com/public/c/r/crochetpoet/ let the page load up there are tons of links, then look under ponchos and capes. there are a lot of links there so be sure to bookmark that page lol. good luck!!!
  6. It should look great , just be sure really saturate the piece making sure the dye gets between the stitches else it will have faded or a white look to it after its rinsed. If you do a simple banding working from the top down it should not make it too mishappen. if it does simply rewash and reshape letting it drip dry on a rounded form such as a styrofoam ball setting on a towel on someplace flat.good luck sounds like fun
  7. I agree with dark to light, light back to dark! The tone balance would be better.
  8. you could always make a couple of crochet couch pillow covers.
  9. here is one http://bythehook.blogdrive.com/archive/131.html It is for an adult but it is done using two strands held together, perhaps a single strand and smaller hook would give the right size for an infant.
  10. my mom managed to teach me to do a chain when I was 10.. but I never got any further than that . I watched as she did afghans as a child and when I was a teen and early 20's she was addicted to lacy doilys . I watched her crochet for hours, slipped her a pattern or two of things I wanted. but never learned. she passed away in 2001 and last fall I found her hooks, and what was left of her stash and finally got hit by the bug.. found instructions for stitch basics made a couple of scarves in some wool, a freeform pair of slippers of ww. then went straight for the doily in one of her books Shooting stars, and have been hooked ever since now have made a few shawls 4 or 5 doilies, dishcloths, a lot of cute amigurumi critters in yarn and thread, lol.. I still swear its her hooks, there is no way I could have picked it up that fast.
  11. all this encouragement helps.. lol.. but not so much in crochet for me but my jewelry making.. that has been my passion since I was a teenager (many moons ago) I have actually had my own bussiness since 1997 but last fall I got discouraged by all the jewelry making when there were a few people who looked at my stuff as if it were inferior since it is made by me and not some famous store and expect me to practically give the items away since it is a rose and thistle creation. since that time have not made much at all except cheap single strand stuff ( not my usual time invested pieces of art), and that is why I took up crochet last fall to get my mind of the jewelry depression... but you know what after all the encouragement I see here I think after my swaps are done it is time to get back to bussiness again and keep my crochet for a hobby lol
  12. here is a pattern you can purchase in an etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9994760
  13. I actually know what you are talking about . it starts as a circle then, a triangle, becomes a square, then like a six sided star , then an octagon (going from memory only). I know I have seen it and thought it was cute , but I have no clue where. I'm still looking for the pattern tho
  14. There are quite a few free patterns here for hook cases: http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/cases_caddies.php
