2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Winter Carnival Medal Winning Hat and Ami Fur Trader! on: February 22, 2011 06:04:08 AM
For the Winter Carnival in our little town of Wawa, I entered the Carnival Toque Contest, and the Creative Art Competition with some of my crocheted works.  The theme was "Frozen in Time", so for the hat competition, I created an iceman/caveman thawing out of a chunk of snow/ice.  The hat was crocheted in two strands of yarn, one just an acrylic worsted weight in white, the other was a thin shiny white wool.  The caveman was then crochted in worsted weight and sewed to the hat to look like he was emerging from the snow!  I then used my hairbrush to make his hair ratty looking.







For the Fur Trader, I crocheted him with worsted weight wool, and a size 3 hook.  His Hudson Bay jacket is removable.  I also crocheted his sled by crocheting a long rectangle, then threading floral wire through the sides.  I whip stitched around the wire to cover it, then bent it to form the sled shape.  The fur is sewn to the sled with yarn.  The snow shoes are just snow shoe ornaments that I bought, and I sewed his feet to them.  He stands on his own with them.  And finally, I covered him with sparkly snow, using spray adhesive. He stands almost 16 inches tall.


And here is a pic of my medal winners!  The toque won for "Most Original", and the Fur Trader won the gold!



More info on the theme and more pics available on my blog.  I'm just so proud of my little dudes!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Scrubbing Bubble - w/ free pattern link! on: May 13, 2010 06:59:08 AM


Hello!  I thought I'd share this cute little guy with everyone.  He's inspired by the Mr. Clean Scrubbing Bubble!  

I used a size G hook, small amounts of worsted weight acrylic, and felt for the features!  If you've got about an hour and a half to kill, this is an excellent project to try.  Grin  

I first made one about a year ago and saved my pattern notes.  A dear friend of mine spotted it, loved it, so I gave it to him.  A few weeks later, I dug out my notes and made this one, and he was immediately confiscated by my three year old!  So I will be making another for myself very soon.  Wink

Have fun!!!
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mr. Moon and Wolfie on: March 01, 2010 01:26:21 PM
This was supposed to be an entry for the Threadknits contest, and is based on a T-shirt design that Threadless has.  Anyway, I was too late entering it, so I thought I'd present it here!



It's actually called "Quit Howling at Me", but I've been referring to it as Mr. Moon and Wolfie.



The arms are wired with coat hanger wires and took some fiddling to get right. The wolf was hard to get right too, and I'm still not completely satisfied with him.




Anyway, I'm really proud of it!  It measures about 9 inches wide without the arms. Mores photos available at my Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cheewawamomma/
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Olympic Dreams Skier Amigurumi on: February 25, 2010 04:26:40 PM
For Schmancy''s Olympic Challenge, I entered the following amigurumi.

My category was skiing, so I wanted to make a skier of course!  I wanted it to show the spirit of the games, or at least my interpretation of it.  Shes got a snowball surrounding her body, as shes taken a tumble down the ski hill.  However, she is still smiling, because shes holding onto her dream that one day shell be participating in the Olympics.  Her eyes are closed because shes daydreaming of the day shell win the gold.



Shes crocheted, amigurumi style, and other than her ski poles, is completely plush (stuffed!)  Her skis are crocheted on top, then has wires sewn in the middle to keep them straight.  The bottoms of the skis are felt, which are blanket stitched to the top of the skis.  The ski poles are wires with yarn wrapped around them, and the little stoppers on the ends of the skis (forgive my terminology!) are single holed buttons.




Other details include red mittens, like the red Olympic mittens, ski hat with tassels and the Olympic logo on it, and finally a dusting of snow, which is actually dry-brushed acrylic paint.  She measures 11 inches by 7 inches.



Thanks for looking!

A little known Canadian crocheter (me!) has won the gold medal in Crochet!  Yay!

Actually, if there was such a sport, I'm sure I'd place, considering all the practising I do!! (practicing?)

Anyhoo, here are the pics!  Pattern to follow hopefully tonight, although it is really very VERY easy!



In conclusion, good luck to all the Olympians! and Olympic crocheters!

Pattern now available on my blog, and here!


Gold Medal Pattern
By Annette Morrison, February 2010
Free to use for anything you want!!! 
(This pattern has not been tested.  If there are errors, please pm me, and I'll correct it for you and everyone else as soon as I can)

Tools:

Gold worsted weight acrylic yarn (I used some chunky stuff I had laying around, but it would probably be easier to embroider on something like Red Heart Supersaver)
Blue worsted weight acrylic yarn
Scraps of dark blue, black, red, yellow and green yarn.
3.5mm crochet hook
scissors
tapestry needle

Medal (Make 2)
With Gold.

1.  6 sc in magic ring, or chain 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook.  Do not join rounds.
2.  Sc inc every sc (12)
3.  (1 sc, 1 sc inc) around (18)
4.  (2 sc, 1 sc inc) around (24)
5.  (3 sc, 1 sc inc) around (30)
6.  (4 sc, 1 sc inc) around (36)
7.  (5 sc, 1 sc inc) around (42)
8.  (6 sc, 1 sc inc) around (48)
9.  Sl st in next, FO.

Embroider the Olympic logo as pictured, as well as the year.  Or get funky with it!  I thought a tiny granny square motif indicating the sport of crochet would be cute.  Or you could put a motif of any kind of hobby on it.  Have fun!

Then, join the two medals together at the top about 3 stitches to the left of the center with a single crochet, right sides facing out, and single crochet around. Slip stitch to the first single crochet, then chain 6 tightly. Join with a slip stitch to the 3rd single crochet to the right of the centre, and fasten off, weaving in ends.  This forms the loop for the neck strap to go through.

Strap
With Blue.

Chain 145, (or whatever length you want).  In 3rd chain from hook, double crochet in each chain across.  Fasten off.  Being careful not to twist the strap, pull one end of the strap through the medal loop.  Sew the two ends of the strap together.

Voila! You are now an Olympic Gold medalist!  Congratulations!

This is the first post of my own works, and while I've done more detailed crochet, I am pretty excited about these guys, and I am keeping them all for myself!

Up first is Wilson.



Then two shrunken heads.




And finally, my fabulously kitschy pink poodle tp cover!
