Crocheted Bootie Bag by Darlene Rambo

This is what I am calling my "BOOTY BAG".... I used Red Heart 4 ply yarn , with Peaches and Cream 4 ply white cotton thread. I used a size E crochet hook. I think it turned out pretty well, being my first bag.. It was made without a pattern. I did the bottom like an extra large bootie then just kept going up the sides. Then added a wide strap to be easy on my shoulders. I will try it out the 1st while going across country to see my family one last time .. Hope you enjoy, I enjoyed making this.

Trying Something New

I have been thinking about making a bootie like this for some time, thought I would see if I could do it so here it is. This was just a quickie to test the idea.
It's loomed on the kk flower loom. The lace up was crocheted on after.
Just had to get it out of my mind and on a loom LOL.
Also fixed my wool Greek Fishermans hat. Bought it mail order and it came as ex-large. When I contacted them they didn't have any my size so I made it smaller.
Restitched the back then shrunk the wool. My first attempt at felting so I think it turned out well. Actually shrunk it about 3".
Hubby got some material to make his shopping bags using Knot Knitting. Comming Soon!
Darlene is working on a crochet bag using a size E hook single stitch.

A week of learning fun

Happy May Birthday's to all. I'll even be 50 the 17th.
I crocheted a thermos cozy for hubby this week. It works! Now his coffee stays nice and hot!
I was asked to make my ponytail & pigtail hats using a crochet hook for the ones that don't loom so I tried and here are the pics of my new crochet ponytail hat (not bad for my first ever crochet hat I think) I will get the crochet hat patterns as soon as I can. I'm not really good at reading a crochet pattern so I'm slow to write them. As for the loomed ponytail & pigtail hat patterns, I will post them as soon as the yahoo loom class is over for the pigtail hat. The pigtail hat class starts June 8 - 14th in for anyone that would like to loom it. Robin McCoy will be your teacher for me due to Karl & I will be out of town on our anniversary/family visit/fishing/honeymoon/ vacation trip. Woo Hoo!

My first try at crocheting something like this, buy hubby asked if I could make him a cozy to keep his coffee warm longer so here it is.

Keeps coffee Hot!

Shelf Babies: By Ruby Darlene Rambo (My Dear Friend)

Hi, Thought it time I done some talking here about my BABIES!!! I am 64, live in S.Lake Tahoe, Calif.. Im from Indiana and moved here a little over a year ago.. A great friend and I met on yahoo groups and have became good friends and I think you all know who that special friend is ..She is insisting that I get these BABIES together .. I call them my shelf babies, due to finding them at thrift stores , begging to come home with me ..since my kids are grown with kids, I feel a little left out , so since I have been crocheting for a few years , then I found the KK looms , I have been dressing shelf babies with the help of my great friend. We talk every day in yahoo, and I look forward to her signing in .. I love the groups, I have learned so much in such a short time .. I hope every one enjoys looking at my BABIES as much as I enjoy dressing them...

Baby's Pony-Tail hat

Baby got a new hat today! I made her a pony-tail hat to go with her new outfit. As you can see she is very happy with it, but then she's always happy. In fact she's a real doll LOL. I've been working on her outfit having now finished her shorts, top, a jumper, pig-tail hat and pony-tail hat along with her super simple booties. All my own design made on the red KK round loom and the KK flower loom. Also completed block #3 for my lapghan in Loom Class. A special thank you goes out to Robin McCoy for the block #3 pattern. She has been working so hard in Loom Class and her birthday is Friday May 2nd (hint hint) Happy Birthday Robin!! Ruby has been working on a daisy Quilt for her daughter. So far it has over 600 daisies and a long way to go. She is also working on a surpise to post on the blog here. Until next time, Loom on.
