1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / swirls cap for tasha on: February 15, 2010 04:12:17 PM
i made this hat for my daughter a few days ago ;



the pattern is by sophia kessinger (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/swirls-cap)

i didn't have anything for the insert in the brim so i just doubled up the yarn and crocheted the upper layer. 

I also made this hat for her:



it's the convertible hat by april daven (http://aprildraven.blogspot.com/2009/08/convertible-hat.html)
She's worn this hat the most the last couple weeks cause it covers her ears~ AWESOME pattern, too!!!

thanks for looking!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Candy fish!! With free pattern!!! on: November 01, 2008 09:43:21 AM
Hi everyone!  I made another toy for my cats:



I came up with the idea to stuff it with candy wrappers because my cats were fighting over the wrappers!

I used about 6 whoppers wrappers, but you can use any 'crunchy'/heavier type plastic candy wrapper (smarties, and most 'gummy' candy ones)



Materials:

size G hook

ww yarn (i used Lion Brand Cotton Ease)

candy wrappers

 

Pattern:

with main color, 5sc in a ring

rd1:  2sc in each sc around (10)

rd2:  2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15)

rd3:  2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (20)

rd4-7:  sc in each sc around (20)

rd8:  sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc around (15)

rd9:  sc2tog, sc in next sc around (10)

stuff fish here

rd10:  sc2tog around (5)

rd11:  sl st to close hole, chain 20

r12:  sl st into rd11 sl st (bottom of fish) and chain 15

r13:  sl st into r12 sl st and chain 10

r14:  sl st into r13 sl st, fasten off

For the fishing line, attach any color yarn with sl st to the top of the fish and chain like 50 or so.  I made a loop at the end by just tying a knot, and i used black yarn to sew an X for the eyes.

 

The cats LOVE their crunchy candy fish!!



Thanks for looking!!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / ninja minions and a ghost on: October 08, 2008 11:22:27 AM
I made a few ninja minions using the free pattern here: http://deliriousnanite.livejournal.com/12967.html

I woke up from a nap and found them staring at me!:



The ninjas wanted a better view of the living room, so my daughter put them all in our spooky halloween tree:



I also loved this pattern from owly the second i saw it and decided to make it into a ghost:

Finishing:

1.  Using yarn needle, sew roof spots wherever you like on the roof.  Sew the door on the front of the house and the windows on each side of the door.  I used a small roof spot for the doorknob, and i used purple yarn to sew an x onto the windows.

2. Stuff bottom and top, then sew the two together.

3.  The yarn i used for the bottom (bernat) is a bit thicker than the red heart soft, so try to use a yarn like regular red heart or something for the bottom part.  The rest was made with red heart soft.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Stuff i made this week on: May 15, 2008 08:09:26 AM
In order to escape the never-ending constant cleaning that always needs to be done here, i decided to let the dishes pile up and crochet instead! 
First i made this giraffe for my mom:


(it's from gourmet crochet)

Then i made her a bear (from Kristie's Floppy Friends)  Still can't decide on how to do the face yet!


I have a bunch of cotton yarn, and soooo don't want to do dishcloths, so i made an ugly duckling (found the pattern over at www.freepatterns.com)


I also tested the 3D marshmellow bunnies for Copperscaledragon (Killer pattern!!)


Thanks for looking!
