1  Amigurumi Tiger! (pic heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by AngelKitten on: March 06, 2008 04:23:14 PM
Hey!! Here is a Tiger amigurumi i just completed for my nephew! The pattern was originally an Amigurumi Lion pattern from Lion Brand, that i just used the basic shape and designed a different tail and used different colors. Yarn used was Caron simply soft in various colors~

When i asked my sister what my nephew liked, she said Tigers and the color blue.. and we had so many different tones of blue yarn so i just put them together - i think he looks pretty darn cute! =D

Update: added whiskers so it looks more cat-like.




All done!!!

Some WIP pictures:



All the pieces separately before stuffing or details.



Starting to get some shape~



A nice picture of his tail in the back.

I'm really excited about sending him out now, i really hope he likes it! Also another huge thank you for those that offered me advice, i still have 4 more birthdays to craft during the rest of the year, so I'm gonna have my hands full! lol <3

2  Knitting Needle Roll gift~ (pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by AngelKitten on: February 18, 2008 04:35:10 PM
it's been so long since I've sewed anything, but I'm really glad I did Smiley

When i saw my mom's drawer piled with knitting needles I knew something had to be done!! *i seriously had to tear the whole thing apart, there was so many needles and things she had been missing lol*  So i grabbed what I had available and got started!

 I just kind of winged it after seeing other's "roll" cases here on craftster. I haven't sewn in forever, but I think it turned out good when she saw what i had made Smiley



Here's the whole thing laid out. The outside fabric is actually a thick fabric for another project from years ago (that obviously wasn't done). The inside fabric was supposed to be used for a skirt originally, and its really nice because it has a sparkle/glitter to it you cant notice much in the pictures.

The yarn stitching probably looks a bit odd, but I honestly thought the thread wouldn't stay when i first started hemming the pieces. So i used the yarn, knowing it would be thick enough to do the job. I eventually figured out it was the needle that was causing trouble, so i used normal thread for the sides, but i kind of liked the look of the yarn so i use it again when i had to make the pockets. Cheesy Even though the pockets aren't even LOL but they're about 2-2.3in wide each. (Except the one on the far left for extra stuff, it's about 4in)



Lay the flap down to keep them all cozy! I actually intended for it to reach the pocket, but there were some knitting needles that were taller than expected! whoops D: but it still does it's job well~ *I need to add something so it stays down better though. since it crunches up sometimes when rolling*



Rolling action shot!!! Grin



All nice and cozy <3

I wasn't sure how to close it, but after seeing some other rolling cases again I realize where i can add the second ribbon to tie it up =D

It was a ton of fun to make, and I was really happy when my mom saw it and now she can't lose her stuff anymore! Yay~ Wink
