1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Motivation to finish off a big project on: June 26, 2014 05:10:54 AM
Hej, I've recently started a new project, which I don't think would be so big.

Well, I just moved to a new apartment, got a new pillow for my room, and came up with an idea of making my own pillowcase.

I want to make something really cute! Looking around I found this totoro chart, and I decide to make it into a pillow case.

Well, I used single crochet... and the progress is really slow.. 
I'm only up to row 6 in my chart.....and you know... I want to do a back side too but so far I am sort of not motivated to finish it after re-starting for 3 times.

First time, I start with 50 chain, way too small, so I started with 150 chain, after crocheting 10 rows I found out that it's way too big.. So I frogged and start with 120. And found out that single stitches are really small, so I need to add more background rows to put my totoro in the middle.

I decide to use bobbin carry on method, which works out really nicely on the crochet work, but get really tangle up and annoying sometimes.

What can I do to get myself more motivated...

I actually want to keep this thread going, try to post my progress everyday..

Or should I post it in crochetalong, to find someone to do it with me..


This is my progress so far



I haven't touched it today..

A little closed up

OMG!! One of my lovely childhood memories. I used to own everything in Sailormoon. Figures, stationaries, towels to bed set and the collector cards. Then I lost everything I collected because I moved and have to put everything in storage, then the storage place got broke in.

Now I want to make things again. Looking forward to see your items.

I have received my package from Monty! But my camera battery is dead. Waiting for recharge and post the amazing package.

Edit to add pictures:

Here is the pictures!

Monty has sent me a lot of yarnies, a knitting book, and loads of jewelry finding!



Yay! I can learn to knit!


And wire-wrap my own jewelry which I always want to learn!


Here are some of my favorites!


Thank you so much Monty!!

Challenge/Battle/Alert: August Randomizer: Alternate Reality
Team/Ninja: Commercial free all star!
Project Geekdom (if any): TV / Movie / Monster
Bonus Points: Nerdy, Super Nerdy
Project Name: Dirty Little Minions
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Well, I was watching TV, and saw a commercial about Minions the Movie 2 ... and I want to make one. They are so cute little monsters that use banana language. Fun!
So I decided to crochet a mini minion.

But I can't find so many things... black felt for the eyes, grey yarn for the glasses or my crafting glue.

So I decide to go with whatever I find.... I actually use my black nail polish for the eyes and silver glittery nail art polish (the type with tiny little sharp brush). And it dried so slow I messed it up a bit.

And the horror goes on when I can't find my crafting glue to stick the eyes on... I have to use elephant glue.

It kinda melts the nail polishes all over and sticks to my fingers.

Last, I don't really know the above.. when I tried to sew the mouth and the black polish stains so my minion has a big black pimple above his mouth.

By the way, can I claim my discovery point by learning not to use elephant glue with nail polish?

Oh and I actually want to use him as a keychain but can't find any keyrings in my stash. Nowhere to be found.
