Welcome to Chrizi's Crafty Corner!
This Hangout is open to everyone who is interested in anything crafty - whether you do something yourself that you want to talk about or you just enjoy looking at and discussing other people's projects.
I recently got into crocheting and sewing and since I found myself talking about my projects in other threads, I thought it would be cool to have a dedicated hangout for this.
I want to both keep track and collect pictures of my own projects here as well as welcome anyone else to present theirs.
Hopefully we might be able to help each other with tips on technical difficulties, opinions on design decisions and the like.

If you have any suggestions to improve the hangout / the design and info on the front page or make it more welcoming, don't hesitate to let me know!

And most importantly - everyone is very much welcome to just jump in and chat in here!
A few posts below you can find a little form that you can post to introduce yourself and become an official thread member (and I'd be very happy if you do that), but the thread is open to everyone, not just regulars!

Regular members of the thread and a little info about them:

Chrizine wrote:
About: I only got into crafts recently and I don't have a terrible lot of time, but I enjoy it a lot!
Can do: I crochet and I recently got a sewing machine and started sewing.
Would like to: Knitting maybe? And fancy embroidery. I used to do some really simple years ago, but I'm not sure if I'd have the patience for more complicated stuff.
Favourite Projects: Dreaming of the perfect skirts and currently doing a very enjoyable shawl crocheting project.


JacobGrey wrote:
About: I always have way too many projects going at once and I can't sit still doing nothing, so I'm always crafting or playing games even when I'm supposed to be relaxing xD I love crafting so much that now I pretty much wait impatiently for sales in my Etsy shop so I can go buy more materials XD
Can do: Mostly embroidery and beadwork, and I'm currently learning how to make clothes. I sew art hoops, embellish clothing, and make jewellery :)
Would like to: Ribbon embroidery and stumpwork. I actually picked up a ribbon book in the sales so I'm hoping to learn when that gets delivered X3
Favourite Projects: My "best" ones I think so far are my tiger shirt and my falcon necklace. I was really surprised with how both of them came out just like I was expecting xD


Ashiya wrote:
About: I'm a beginner so I'm still trying to learn things. When I don't have too much drawing/painting to do, I have patchwork classes where the teacher helps a lot but I learn what I can from the internet! I also love gaming! Wish the day had 30 hours ;_;
Can do: I'm learning how to crochet but most of it is for amigurumi dolls, I can sew a little bit with some help so far, mostly for doll projects.
Would like to: I want to learn all of the crochet stitches! I can only do a few right now. Would like to be better at sewing too, and to learn embroidery
Favourite Projects: I can't wait to try making a Hatsune Miku doll! So far I've really enjoyed to make larger things like the "bedbug bear"



To be added to the list, please fill in the following form and post it to the thread - feel free to change the colour number to something you like!
You don't have to fulfill any sort of criteria to become a regular member, no number of minimum posts or anything... Feel free to use this form already in your first post to introduce yourself if you like! But it's not required, if you'd rather just chat here for a bit to find out if you like it here, you can post it later whenever you want. Or not, if you don't want to appear here, but it'd make me happy if you do post it at some point - and if you really don't want to be listed here, you can also post it and say that I shouldn't put it on the front page in your post.
(yes, it is supposed to look ugly when you post it, so I can easily grab the code):
Code:

The thing that prompted me to open this thread was finishing my very first sewing project. I posted some links to pictures in another thread, so I'll just quote myself here to have them in this thread as well:

I did it! I finished my crochet-needle-thingy! Pictures:

What I made is a little rolling container for my crochet needles. It is the very first thing I ever sewed on my sewing machine, which I got for christmas and didn't touch for a few months because I wanted to finish my bachelor's thesis first.

I want to do a skirt next, but I think I'll do an extra post for that.
