crochet pineapple purse

Hello!  I know I have been sharing lots of crocheted projects lately.  I have been crocheting more than card making but I think I'll be making more cards soon to stock up my shop again.  I have a lot of stamps that have yet to be used!  I think I may need to do another destash sale. 

Today I have a kawaii pineapple purse to share made from a pattern by Stephanie from All About Ami.  The pineapple purse pattern is HERE.  Stephanie has some of the best patterns in crochet blogland.  I love that she takes the time to photo some of her crocheting steps because it makes the pattern that much clearer especially when it can get confusing about where to place your next stitch.

Took a photo after I crocheted part of the pineapple and placed the eyes, mouth and some pink cheeks.  I used Lion Brand's 24/7 yarn too that the pattern was made in.

I thought about lining this purse since the inside would show the safety eyes and stitches but then opted not too because lining this purse seemed challenging.  I guess some people hand sew the lining but I've seen people also machine sew the fabric to crochet pieces.  I'll have to be brave next time and give that a try.

Here's the pineapple with its crown and open at the top.

Here's how it looks with the drawstring close.  It's pretty cute, isn't it?

I also learned how to crochet this cord (I-cord) that I used for the drawstring and used a cord lock.  All of the links to that are also in the pattern post.

This little purse won't be in my shop though.  I've opted to gift it to a blog friend who loves pineapples.  Hopefully I'll make another one.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
