1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / La la la la la la la la Halloween, Halloween... on: May 18, 2009 01:37:40 PM
Hi everybody! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything.
My friend Ronald asked me to create a Jack Skellington doll for his girlfriend's birthday. After working long and hard, here he is!





I put a penny in there to show that his eye sockets are actually sunken in. This was the most important aspect of the project for me, and I had never tried to do anything like it before. I think it's my favorite part of the whole doll.


The best full-length shot I could get. I apologize for my foot and the bed, my computer is being fiddly.

I designed him to be one-of-a-kind, and I didn't write the pattern down. I want her to have a doll that no one else has. He was a hand assassin with all of the tiny seams, but he was totally worth it.
So, what do you guys think?? Questions and comments welcome!!!

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Ami-Me!! on: July 24, 2008 09:24:52 PM
Well, I was so inspired by the "crochet me" thread, that I decided to make an amigurumi of myself!



I used the Geek Central Station pattern for her body:

It took me forever to decide what I wanted to do with the dress. This kinda came out like an evening gown, with some corset-type lacing up the back and a slit:



Under her dress, she has little panties. ^_^



And, just cause I'm so thrilled, here's a pic of Ami-Me and Kimberly 2 hanging out:



I think I might make another outfit for her sometime, this one doesn't show off her cute jellybean shape that well. However, I think that the likeness is pretty good:



What do you guys think??


Thanks for looking!

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Breakfast, anyone? (Pics have had too much breakfast.) on: July 14, 2008 12:24:01 PM
This morning, I awoke with a rumbling in my tummy. I rose from my bed, and shortly thereafter noticed a delicious treat waiting for me near the toaster.



Due to the fact that I live alone, this occurence was considerably strange to me.



I approached it slowly, and after determining that it was not a threat, decided to indulge in a bite.

But, as I picked it up, prepared for a bite of toasted chocolate-y goodness, lo and behold!



In place of a warm and gooey chocolate-y center was an iPod! Thank heavens I looked before biting!



My only concern now is how it found its way to my toaster...



LOL. I hope you like it. I saw a lovely knitted version here:

I also decided to use the same story, to raise awareness of the recent appearances of mysterious PopTarts bearing gifts.

You should definitley check out her entire blog, she writes a story that goes with nearly every project she finishes.


I hope you enjoyed looking!



4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A chemo chapeau, nautilus, shawl and checkerboard scarf! {Pic Hippopotamic} on: July 12, 2008 11:39:03 AM
Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted any work. Sorry in advance about the length.^_^

I hope you enjoy!




This is a scarf that I made from my own pattern some time ago during a really cold winter. (For some reason, this picture is horrible.) I made one in the same colors, only with stripes, for my bf. It was done in Red Heart.


This is a hat that I made for my boyfriend's mom, who is about to go through chemotherapy. I got the pattern from the HeadHuggers website. This was my first time doing an entire piece in loop stitch (which is funny considering how long I've been crocheting.) This was also done in red heart.



This is another picture of the hat, with me looking young and pensive.



This is a nautilus that I made a couple of days ago, again for my bf (can you say pampered?) We have a running joke involving the nautilus. I used Snork's pattern, and we agree that it is VERY hard on the fingers! However, I'm really happy with it, especially the dimensions of the shell.



A shawl that I began at 3am yesterday morning. I've worked on it for about ten or eleven hours. Sadly, I completely busted my stash of this lovely Caron Simply Soft in Dark Sage, and so I'm going to have to wait quite some time before I can get more to finish it. I plan on this shawl being gigantic, with the back point at ankle length, when I finish it. I'm about 5'9", so it's going to be big.



A closer shot of the shawl's stitches. The pattern is very basic. You can find it here:

I left out the stripes and completely disregarded the final length.

Thank you for looking!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / YouCraft.org on: February 16, 2008 07:33:53 PM
OK, so I've just run across this listing website called youcraft.org.

-Does anyone around here use it?
-Is it useful? Is it successful?
-How do payment methods work? How does it work in general (the FAQs are not very informative.)

Hoping for insight!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Spanish Lace Afghan Pattern--Please Help! on: February 08, 2008 10:56:26 AM
Hello Everyone!

There is an afghan pattern that my grandmother has used my entire life. She has made countless afghans for me and my family, and it's her signature crocheted piece.

Then this little windstorm came through...called Hurricane Katrina.

The pattern is mutilated almost beyond recognition, and my grandmother and I have been trying to find someone with the pattern for almost two years now.

The pattern is called Spanish Lace Afghan. It looks like a very lacey chevron.

Can ANYONE help me? I would greatly appreciate any insight on this matter.

Thanks in advance!
Shannon
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Devil's Food (Cup) Cake! on: February 07, 2008 01:21:42 PM
Hi guys! I think this is the first item I am posting on Craftster! Yay! *Throws confetti*

I am participating in a cupcake contest on another website, and so we were given a few cupcake patterns and asked to create an unusual, original cupcake.

So, may I introduce, Count Signorino, the Demon Cupcake!



   

Thanks for looking!
