A crochet Session

This wasn't a normal SFC meeting. My cousin took this photo: Image hosted by Photobucket.com

of me, Yumi and Bambie crocheting. Both of my friends wanted to learn the basics of crochet, that how we had this short crochet session. As you see, Yumi has her eyes on the book - hooked on crochet, which i let her used that night. Bambie just created her own design with my guide still. Then my cousin, Malou gave a new meaning to SFC (singles for crochet), which was one of her jokes.

Also on the same night i gave Bambie this hat, which was Mimi's newest free pattern. this hat is in fushia pink and black. I used a steel crochet hook size 1, which made the hat smaller and just the exact fit on her head. It was my christmas gift for her. She loves to model around:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com then i've placed them under the fern tree which my mother has transform into a christmas tree because i never found the real christmas tree hidden in the boxes at our storage room.:) i haven't close the bags yet because i want to add a little bit more in each of them.

Good my mom found these nativity figurines and set them up on top of our divider:Image hosted by Photobucket.com

this cap:Image hosted by Photobucket.com is for Sam, my officemate, which was one of her request a long time ago. i did this last saturday while going around the mall with Sam. i used the pattern from mimi's craft, http://mycottonthreads.blogspot.com/2005/12/striped-hat-pattern.html

Here are more scrunchies that i've done this weekend.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Image hosted by Photobucket.com my friend bought this one right away when she saw it. it seems that most of them just love this color so much. especially with the special flower sequins that i used with it which is also in lavender. it really looks so sparkling.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com this one is also in lavender but without the flower sequins.

i've done another one in peach but haven't taken a photo of it yet, without flower sequins and i'm making another one with sequins in it.

Photos from my new digicam

i haven't notice that it's already the end of November and holidays are coming! i coudln't believe that my last post was around 2nd week of november. it has been really a busy month for me.

anyway i want to show photos from my new digicam. i've also put aside the ring bearer's pillow for my friend as she isn't sure yet of the wedding day which might not happen yet this december. i only have the other side to finish now and the edgings.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com me and sam

Image hosted by Photobucket.com at's me at the middle and my friend and uncle at the sides. we were having dinner during my sisters birthday.

now i couldn't find the birthday celebrant's photo together with my father, who are sitting across the table.

here's what i've been doing last night: Image hosted by Photobucket.com this is the same pattern i've used for the pouch bag that i gave to my autumn secret pal, Angie. Maybe this one will be for my mom again, which was one of her request months ago. She likes using small bags too.

More Scrunchies!

Here are 4 more scrunchies that i've made last weekend:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com the blue with flower sequins is made with acrylic thread. counter clockwise, i just combined the acryclic blue thread with glittery white thread on the top row of it. next one, i just use one color of yarn, which is yellow. and next i use pink luster sheen then combined with it again the glittery white thread at the top row.

i'm still making more this weekend...maybe if i won't be too busy.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com and this one was the first time i ever saw this really big ball of yarn- jo-ann's boucle sensation yarn, a ball of bernat boa, a ball of cotton sugar and cream yarn in hot pink.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com a blue scarf that Mary also knitted for me, which i'm keeping in my closet at the moment. if i can go to Baguio City early next year then i ought to bring this.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com i did this ring beare's pillow during the weekend. it's for my friend Yumi getting married next month. i've just done the first side yet, hopefully i'll do the other side this coming weekend.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com just a closer look of the stitches.

Monday, November 07, 2005

I haven't posted photos yet of my SP's reveal package and the scrunchies that i've made since i've been so busy during the weekend. i have made 3 more scrunchies until now. i hope i can get a digicam so i don't have to worry that i can't take photos during night. :( mostly especially with my upcoming weekend activities with SFC(Singles for Christ)...i know i'll be taking lots of photos.

i'm also watching Harry Potter, which will be on theatres next week!

More Scrunchies coming!

i'm making more scrunchies in different colors, some with beads. i think i'll also make some in fun fur to show off and sell or give away.

i'll show tomorrow the scrunchies that i have done. my friends love what i do and one of the scrunchies i did i have already sold, which was in lavender acryic thread. i'm making several more of the same color since a lot of my friends prefer that one.

here are the photos:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com this one is in size 10 yellow thread with red beads.

A-shaped shell purse

this is another purse for my officemate again, which has been seating around here for awhile now. i've finally finished it: Image hosted by Photobucket.com it's made of anchor lifestyles crochet cotton thread in size 8. i used 2 strands of thread and a size 1 steel hook.

and here is the zipper/handle detail. this lock is attached to the zipper:Image hosted by Photobucket.com

i'm feeling a little lazy now to put on a lining in this purse as i've now seen the finish project and just very contented with how it looks.
Here's a pouch bag that I made yesterday for a friend whose celebrating her birthday this coming saturday: Image hosted by Photobucket.com I still need a cord as a lock and i used one of the yarns i got from my yarn swap. It is in variegated colors of peach, blue, yellow and a little shade of lavender. There's an old cd at the bottom of it to stiffen the bag. I crocheted another piece like the bottom, inserted the cd between the two pieces then sewed it together.

another bag WIP...

or maybe i should call it purse because it's much smaller and it's for my officemate Samantha. it's also going to have a lining and zipper. i hate working with linings, but well its what makes the whole project beautiful. it's made of thread size 8 and i crocheted it in two strands in pastel colors of pink and aqua with white...an anchor variegated thread. i'll post a photo of it on the weekend hopefully.

anyway it's going to be a long weekend ahead...

bag WIP

this is for my friend Cathy. this bag is done in sky blue and grey, 2 strands of yarn are held together and this is the effect:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

i'm almost done with it as i'm doing the handle part of it. then i'll be putting a lining, maybe a printed one, then a zipper. i'm also putting a plastic canvas on its base to stiffen it. i hope it will come out good and hope my friend likes it.

pink butterfly bookmark

this bookmark has been sitting in my drawer for months...left it there with the ends unweave and without a tassel yet.

then this afternoon i decide i should weave in the ends and put a tassel on it: here it is now,

and here's a closer look at it:

another celphone pouch

this is another request from my office mate, Sam, who's going to give this as a gift to her friend. I sold it to her for P25. i made up my own pattern in this pouch with side gussets, using 2 strands of size 8 thread. i really like what i did with the edging/joining on the body and the gussets, they're like little bobble stitches. then i added eyelash yarn to trim on the opening.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

here's a closer look of the stitches, which are in sc and dc alternates:

this pouch will perfectly fit a Nokia 3310 or 3315 unit.

Bags

Mostly I have done bags during my first year of crocheting. Since then, I already got addicted with the craft. And like all of you out there (crocheters & knitters), I just couldn't get enough yarn and thread. I always think of what would be my next project, even if i still have several projects to finish...lol. :)

Just starting out

finally I have just started my own blog. Here I shall post with whatever interest me and whatever I want to share. I'm still learning on how to post photos and links.

Here's my first:



My cousin, Malou was asking me to make one for her. I gave it to her as a Christmas gift.

Here's another photo that shows the sling:



This is my own pattern, which i made in v-stitches,dc and sc. the sling is done in chains just long enough for adjusting the stopper.
