Roundup: Crafty Rocks

When I was 7, I learned how to make a pet rock in a crafting afternoon at the public library. Crafting rocks have come a looooong way these days and I love the natural beauty of the crochet covered rocks in the photo above from Resurrection Fern. Simply inspiring!

This beautiful winter berries crochet rock cozy was made by Molly of A Foothill Home Companion. She has a great photos and a tutorial on how to make one yourself. [ via Whip Up ]

Derek and Lauren on design*sponge show us we can make our own rocks with their tutorial on making felted rocks.

And finally, why decorate a pet rock when you can crochet a pet rock with this pattern by Cherie of How To Do Things.com. Wish I knew I could make this when I was 7!

Personaliza tus zapatos con tejido

He encontrado estas ideas fantásticas, para hacer con el mundo se zapatos lindos que andan pro ahi y que luego no podemos usar por la temporada, pues ya no sufran mas, conviertan en zapatos súper modernos y abrigadores o con puro estilo, aquí les muestro lo sencillo que es, si quieren ver mas aquí en este enlace lo encontrarán.


By MaryKate Newcomb

“I could make that.” This sentence is a blessing and a curse for an art school graduate. I find myself saying it while shopping, reading magazines and websites, and watching movies. But then Reality Voice speaks: “You’ll never have the time to make it yourself. Wouldn’t the materials cost more than just buying the thing, already made?” Then I leave the store or turn the page, and forget about the great thing that I could make but never will.

Recently, looking at some of the new shoe fashions out there gave me some inspiration to actually follow through with the “I-could-make-that” desire. Tons of boots, half-boots, and all the heights in between are showing up on the runways and in stores. Some of them have knitted or crocheted components, and many of them are way too expensive, thereby pushing them out of the realm of Feasable Purchase-dom. Instead of pining for some crazy boots, I can adapt some of the way-too-many shoes I already own.

Armed with a leather punch and some crochet know-how, I’ve given some tired shoes the ankle-boot-makeover they’ve always dreamed of. And you can too! You know you always wanted to punch some holes in shoes. Admit it. Now you have a perfectly good excuse, and the blessing of the fashion world to boot.

The First Steps: Inspiration

Zappos.com. Immerse yourself in the world of online shoe-gazing. Look up ankle boots, calf-height boots, or any other category of shoe you’re thinking about making. There are hundreds and hundreds of shoes to look at, and the site allows you to see side, back, top, bottom, AND closeup views of almost every pair. It is online Shoe Nirvana.
Magazines: I cut out pages of shoes or designs I like, and pin them to a board in my studio to look at and absorb. You could do the same with catalogs, printouts from websites, and photos from around town. You may see some similarities in the things you choose, some shapes you gravitate to, or color combinations that you enjoy.
A trip to your local shoe emporium: Look for styles that you like, try on a few pairs to see if they flatter you, and go home. Save yourself a couple hundred bucks and thank me later. Look for shoes in your own collection to use as a base for the new boots you want.
Thrift Stores (or your closet) for shoes to practice on, leather/pleather belts, hardware (buckles, straps, etc), and anything else you might find inspirational.

Leather punch—found at most big craft stores (see photo at right).
Screwdriver (for changing settings on leather punch)
Crochet hooks -- super tiny to yarn-appropriate size
Sewing needle/tapestry needle
Stitch markers
Paper, Sharpie and a pencil
A pair of really cruddy shoes to practice on
Shoes you think would look cool with added crochet elements
Leather (or pleather) belts or coats from thrift stores, for optional details. Lots of boot styles have wrapped-around belts and leather cuffs.
Yarn that goes with your shoes. This could be a color that matches exactly, a contrasting color that will look like spats on the shoe, or a variegated yarn with a hint of the shoe color in it. Don’t use really light, lacy yarn, because it won’t stand up to the wear-and-tear of pulling on and off, and it will probably look dumb.If you want to make some fake Uggs, that stash of fun-fur yarn will finally come in handy!
Starting on the right foot with practice shoes

You really don’t want to learn a lot of lessons on the shoes you’re planning to spruce up. Save that for the cruddy ones, and experiment with different hole sizes, yarn weights, hook sizes, and stitches with these shoes.

First, determine the size and placement of the holes. Punch a few different sizes to see what works best with the yarn. You’ll probably notice that some of the shoe-glue goo gets on your punch. You can clean it with some vegetable oil on a paper towel.

Using the largest crochet hook that fits into the hole along with your yarn, crochet into the holes all the way around the shoe. Are there bunchy places? Are there really tight stitches? You’ll want to decrease stitches in bunchy places, and increase in the tight areas.

Be conscious of which side is showing as you work; if you want the right side of the fabric to show, crochet clockwise around the shoe. Going counter-clockwise will show the backs of the stitches. If you plan to make a cuff to turn down, counter-clockwise is the best way to go.

If you want the slouchy look, you won’t need to decrease your stitches much at all as you go up from your foundation row of stitches—maybe one or two near the front of the shoes. If you’re looking for more fitted boots, remember that you’re going to need to pull the shoes on, so don’t go crazy with decreasing stitches.

Think about the shoes you’ll be working on for your final pair. Try out a few ideas with the practice shoes and see how they look.

I used a front-post double crochet ribbing on the middle area, and some cluster stitches at the top for more fluff. A shoe only a mother could love)

Figuring out your design

Draw your shoe as you see it, from the side, as best as you can.
OR take a digital photo (set the shoe on its side, on a white surface with nothing around it), and print it out
OR find an image like your shoe at Zappos, and print the image.
Trace around the main lines of the shoe with a sharpie. Don’t worry about detail areas.
Put clean paper over the sharpie drawing, and trace the shoe out as many times as you like. Leave room above the shoe drawing to add higher boot elements, if that’s what you’re going for.
Try drawing different heights, slouchy/baggy effects, buttons up the side like spats, piratey cuffs at the top. Go crazy!
When you have a rough idea of what you want to do, allow for possibilities to present themselves while you crochet. Like me, you might find a design you like as you work!
Making Shoes Crochet-Ready

Figure out how close together you want your holes to be—no farther than a quarter-inch apart, and not any lower from the edge of the shoe unless you want tall foundation stitches to be part of the design.

Punch your holes carefully, making sure you punch all the way through the leather and linings. Use a safety pin to poke out reluctant punch-bits. Count the holes and try to get the same number on the second shoe. One or two holes off won’t affect the pattern much.

Tie your chosen yarn around one of the inside holes, use your hook to pull it through the same hole and make a chain stitch. Then single crochet into the same hole, and all the way around the shoe. This serves as your foundation row of stitches.

Crochet in rounds to the desired height of your boots. Try them on as you work to get a good look at how things progress. Write down the stitches you are using in each round so you can duplicate your work on the second shoe.

How I made the ankle boots

Yarn: worsted weight brown and color-flecked wool, and chunky baby alpaca in brown.

Holes: I used the smallest hole setting, with about a quarter-inch between punches.

Hooks: a D (3.25mm) or smaller to start, then an H (5.0mm) or I (5.5mm) with the chunky alpaca. The smaller hook helps make the stitches more dense.

Start crocheting in the inseam of the shoe. That way joins won’t be as visible.
Using the worsted-weight yarn, single crochet around the holes with the small hook. Slip stitch in first st to join. Fasten off worsted weight yarn and weave in ends.

Join alpaca yarn in first st, ch 2, hdc in each foundation stitch, join to first stitch. Do not chain 2, hdc in first stitch. Work in spiral rounds of hdc for about 7 rounds without joining. Sl st in next st to join. Fasten off alpaca yarn and weave in ends.

With worsted weight yarn, sc, *skip 1 hdc, 5 dc in next stitch (1 shell made), skip next st, sc in next stitch; rep from * all the way around, sl st in first sc to join. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Turn cuff over, and finito! Now do the second shoe.
Send me pictures of your own brilliant shoe designs! I love to see what people come up with.

Vestido crochet Niño Dios

Tejido en crochet para niñito Dios

Usar puntuación: / 27

Tags: crochet | vestidos para niño Dios

Hola amigas y amigos, les contaré que celebramos el día de la candelaria, el dia 2 de febrero, y muchos se preguntarán,¿qué es esa celebración? del día de la candelaría,

bueno un festejo o como muchos lo conocemos un bautizo del niño Jesus, donde se lleva a misa con su ropon nuevo, y se despues de la misa se brinda un festejo en su honor y se dan tamales y atole, por lo regular, y hay recuerditos por las madrinas del Niño Dios, es una fiesta para festejarlo, así que hay que prepararse para poder vestirlo muy muy lindo y poder estar listos para el día.

Este día se celebra 40 días después de la Navidad (2 de Febrero), esta fiesta marca el final del periodo Navideño, y se conmemora el día en que el Niño Jesús fue presentado en el Templo por sus padres, según la costumbre Judía.

En el día de la Candelaria se hace el "levantamiento del Niño Jesús", el cual consiste en llevar las imágenes y figuras del Niño Jesús a bendecir al templo, así como también levantar y quitar todas las figuras de los nacimientos y guardarlas hasta la próxima Navidad.

También es costumbre que ese día las personas, a las que les tocó el "Niño" o "Monito" al partir la Rosca de Reyes el 6 de Enero día de Reyes, se les obligue a invitar a sus amigos atole y tamales ese día.

En muchos lugares del mundo este día marcaba el principio del año, por lo cual en muchos pueblos los indígenas tienen la costumbre de llevar a bendecir las mazorcas que servirán de semillas en la próxima siembra, también se bendicen las velas o candelas, de ahí el nombre de "Candelaria", estas velas son consideradas como buenas para apartar el mal, la enfermedad y los temblores.

Ya es una tradición en San Miguel de Allende que en este día la gente se reúna a comprar plantas o flores en el Parque Juárez, que se llena de cientos de vendedores con gran variedad de flores lo que hace que el lugar luzca colorido y hermoso.

Y para ello he puesto a su disposición, modelos para tejer y vestir a los niños Dios y llevarlos a su bendición, así que espero les guste y les iré agregando mas tips y souvenirs para entregar ese día tan especial para muchos de nosotros.

Les muestro unos modelos (amarillo matizado, azul cielo, blanco, manta, hueso y verde) que mi amiga Lucero nos ha compartido gracias Lucero.

Modelo de mi amiga Lucero, son una preciosura.

vestidito para niño dios crochet amarillo matizado

Me ha escrito Nedy, y me ha solicitado la puntada para el vestidito blanco, aquí esta Nedy, espero que todo salga super bien, gracias por tu solicitud y estaré al pendiente de tus logros, saludos.

Modelo de Gise, y hay mas modelitos, gracias Gise por tus aportaciones.

Imágen de: Linuxman

Hola que tal, perdón por no haber podido contestar, pero he andado un poco ocupada, pero mira me doy un tiempo para ayudarte.

Para el ropón del niño Dios:


Estambre blanco en grosor mediano, 100 grs
Estambre morado listo o con brillos como tu queiras en grosor mediano, o de preferencia del mismo grueso que el vestidito, 75 grs.
Agujas del numero 3 o 2.5
2 seguros para tejidos
3 botones lilas o morados o blancos medianos
aguja estambrera
gancho del numero 2 de acero

Medios Rombos, para la puntada que se usa en este modelo, solo tejemos hasta la vuelta 7 y de ahi dos vueltas de derecho por ambos lados de morado, y se vuelve a repetir la puntada.

O = lasada (se levanta con la aguja le habrá pero no se teje, hasta la siguiente vuelta de regreso en revés)

Triángulo vacio: se tejen 3 puntos juntos (queda de tres puntos uno solo)

Triángulos rellenos (ambos triángulos):equivale a tejer 2 puntos juntos (se toman los dos puntos y se tejen como si fuera uno solo)

Nota; el vestido es blanco y cada cambio de puntada son dos vueltas de morado, y la capa era toda en morado.


Montar desde el cuello 70 puntos y tejer en blanco por 6 vueltas de musgo (todas las vuelts son de derecho), y al termino de las 6 vueltas hacer 5 puntos de musgo de cada lado para lso botones hasta terminar el ropon, y en los que queden en esea vuelta se hace un aumento cada 2 derechos por una vuelta y tejemos a punto de resorte 1 derecho y un reves por 16 vueltas y volver a hacer 6 vueltas de musgo, y por una segunda vez 1 aumento cada 3 puntos por una sola vuelta y terminar, para hacer la siguiente división de puntos, deberas de tener 140 puntos aproximadamente y haremos la siguiente divición.

tejeras 25 derechos y los siguientes 20 puntos y sin tejer pasarlos a un seguro para tejido, y seguir tejindo ahora otros 50 derechos y los siguientes 20 puntos psarlo sin tejer en un seguro para tejidos y seguir con los ultimos 25 puntos de derecho, ahora veras que se han sacado por separado las mangas y quedas con la pura batita, y regresas teniendo en dercho haciendo un aumento cada 3 puntos, es decir 3 derechos y un aumento, por una vuelta tejiendo siempre los 5 puntos de cada lado para los botones, como dijimos al principio, y seguimos ahora con la puntada que esta arriba y tejemos recto por un largo que tu gustes, quiaz tenga que cubrir los pies del nilo Dios, y cuando esto suceda, hacer 6 vueltas mas de musgo y rematar todos los puntos y listo.

Ahora con las mangas: poner los puntos del seguro en las agujas unir el estambre y seguir con la puntada por el largo de los brazos del niño Dios, terminando con 6 vueltas de musgo y rematar, lo mismo con la otra manga.

Unir con la aguja estambrera las mangas y listo a pegar botonitos en la parte de atras.

Montar 80 puntos en color morado, y hacer 6 vueltas de musgo y al terminar hacer un aumento cada 3 puntos por una sola vuelta, tejiendo los 5 puntos de musgo de cada lado, y empezar con la puntada por un largo mayor al del ropon, terminamos con 6 vueltas de musgo y terminamos.

le colocas un pasa liston al cuello para usarlo como jareta y amarrar en el cuello la capa.

bueno ahora te toca hacerlo, y tu veras si quieres comprarle los accesorios o hacerlos, yo lo que hago es hacerles un fondo y la faldita del fondo con mucho plizado para que se pongo bombocha la faldita y luzca el tejido.

Espero me entiendan las explicaciones y me puedas mandar las fotos de sus obras maestras

Atentamente Sol.

un saludo y estaremos al pendiente, su amiga sol.
