1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mario Star...on his first date!! on: February 16, 2008 12:27:52 AM
I just finished knitting my little Mario Star and he turned out better then I had hoped.

I used the pattern from http://www.modadea.com/patterns/LM0240.htm.

I downsized the needles to size 4.5mm and used an acrylic worsted weight yarn instead. The eyes are embroidered by hand.

(His date, GIR, is shown here in his own topic http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222614.msg2402521#msg2402521)

Thanks for taking a gander!!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Spawn of the Undead Costumes on: January 27, 2008 08:49:54 PM
I wasn't sure where to put this topic, but this forum seemed fitting, as it's mostly about dressing up.

Family portraits are always so boring, the same poses and forced smiles...well, to heck with all of that, this year my little family decided that we were going to start a new tradition...a new themed portrait for every year...luckily, it fell, and always will fall, around Halloween!!

This year, we started with our favourite subject. ZOMBIES!!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / GIR-licious!! on: January 24, 2008 12:12:53 AM
This is my first of, hopefully, many uploads to come Cheesy

My son has insisted on having an Invader Zim themed room...the fact that I LOVE this cartoon made this project so quick, easy, and enjoyable to do.

I present my very first crocheted plushy, GIR!!

I don't have a pattern done up for him yet, but I can at least tell you what I used to make him:

-5mm hook

-Bernat Softee Chunky in Grey Heather and Hot Blue

-wooden dowel...he needed the stability for the neck, otherwise his head flopped over like he suffered from narcolepsy. I asked my son if it made him any less cuddly, if so I could make him without a neck, and he said that he was just as snuggly to sleep with and that he needed to have the neck so that he looked just right (he's a bit of a perfectionist....I wonder where he gets it from?!)

-poly-fill, which I stuffed in every crevice.
