I can see some good intentions to this and I am bookmarking it to play with some design elements this winter. Tighter closure in the front for a start. :) it has good bones just not so much on application.
Looking forward to playing with it. Always nice to be inspired!
I would take pictures of it as I come across it and sit at the PC to categorize it then do the manual part. The assigning to projects right away goes a bit too far for me but what ever works for you! :)
I am too prone to pick up fabric and yarn because I like it and know I can work it into something. I will have a general idea by feel of it on if that would be a big project or small so I know to buy a lot or a little. There is no way I could assign something to a project right off and it keep its designation. I am always so impressed by those of you that can do that.
He doesn't want to go to them. He said he really wants to come here instead.
You did an amazing job!! So adorable!!
Wow!! What a find! See.. You never found them before because you was saving up for a really great find and didnt even know it. :D
I'm having one of those "I'm watching you ,Yarn" moments. Pulled it out of the bag and center pull is already poking out.
I'm skeered..... ;)
OK. Maybe not scared but seriously considering a quick run down to the convenience store for a lottery ticket.
Mayber Bernat was just feeling guilty after the 30 minute tangle mess of goo I got from the center of my skein last night.
Plain or not that's cute. It would take no time to whip up an applique to go on it. It could be a super adorable in an hour!
A store that I frequent has asked me to fill a shelf with my handmade goodies.
I have 2 weeks to make:
10 cigarette cases
If time allows they would like a couple scarves. But that can wait till late September/early October.
I am so excited!
It's true! There's nothing in stone. That's the wonderful part of being in creative arts. We write our own rules and make it our own work. :)
The only difference in filet crochet charts among designers is some count spaces on the chart as two chains, and some (like me) as one. Every line is a stitch, every space is a stitch or a chain. Filled = stitch, unfilled = space. It's really easy once you get it.
There's single crochet filet and double crochet filet. I design double crochet filet. I like how it works up faster. :)
My husband agreed to let me take over the entire basement as my craft area. It's a huge area and includes a summer kitchen as well. Since necessity is the mother of invention, I needed short curtains to go on the windows in the kitchen down here and I wanted something designed and made by me. I came up with the coffee curtains. They came out really cute. I'm dieing to post pictures up but really can't spill the beans on it till the beta is done. haha made a silly. The beans. I designed a valance so the girls doing the beta could use them on their full size windows. The valance has coffee beans across it. :)
It's late and I'm getting silly. But yeah. Filet crochet is really easy. The only skills needed are chain, double crochet or single crochet. Depends on the type you end up falling in love with and that's it. It makes beautiful works. You can use thread or not. I've seen some beautiful stuff done in sock yarn with an E hook too. I've seen afghans with an I and worsted. It just is harder to see the detail unless you hold it up with light behind it once it gets larger.
I just made up a chart for a filet crochet cutain and valance set and I'm so excited. I have it in beta right now with a really great group of testers.
It took me about 3 weeks to tweak the chart into perfection. Now I gotta wait on them to make sure the design elements all mesh with other peoples techniques. Then I'll release it to the public.
Other designers I know think I'm nuts to run full beta on what I'm going to release as a free pattern but I think free or paid, every pattern deserves full detail. Is that wrong?
Do any of you filet crochet as well?
But they're really cute! It's coffee themed curtains. Here's a sneak peek at them.
Let me know if this works better!
Love these! They make me want to reconsider wearing sleeveless.
