I second the pictures of the floor mats!

I love to crochet, but have only ever done short projects. I used to make a lot of stuffed animals, tote bags, baby things and such, including projects made with fabric strips instead of yarn. I have yet to make an afghan, but I did get started on one before Christmas and it's since gotten pushed aside.

I posted this elsewhere, but this is a sweater I crocheted for my dog:

OMG that doggy coat is just too cute!
I got the floor mat photos taken, now if I can just figure out my new camera and get them from there to here
Its a 71' International Scout so finding floor mats was impossible. The truck is that blue color and the seats are black, thus the black edges.
Hopefully there should be one photo of the drivers side in the truck and one of the driver and passenger side outside the truck. I just made these up as I went along so don't look too close

Here goes......


EDT: I used a rope type stuff and a really big needle

nice job Vida. Those look very handy and easy to clean.

My dad used to braid ropes out of hay strings. I have a bunch of those.

3neighs, I am LOVING the doggy sweater, now that is something
I could only dream of making!

...and those floor mats are just AWESOME, Vida!

I'm in the process right now of crocheting my brother a blanket
Using the school colors (orange and black) as he requested.
It will more than likely be a birthday present for him in Feb.

However, here is a picture of a simple easy to make granny square
Pot holder I created one day out of boredom, it is very LOUD, LOL!


It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Thank you everyone!

Vida, love the floor mats!

STG, that would make a very colorful afghan! You do nice work.

STG that's the first thing my grandma taught me was the granny square. I remember it like it was yesterday, sitting on her couch crocheting with her when I was a little girl. She made those lacy doilies and things mostly. She used those tiny little needles and the thread type stuff. She was way better than I will ever be.

Thanks everyone for liking my wing it floor mats

I used to crochet when I was little. I can't now though, but my grandpa has it down to an art and can make like anything. He even made booties for my dog!
