41  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Alice in Wonderland Ami on: March 10, 2013 07:36:50 AM
My partner in the Triple Vs Swap had a cute little Alice on her pins. I tried to make one similar. I love how it turned out!

And she needed a white rabbit to keep her company!  Wink

Here's the two of them together


Thanks for looking!!

MAGIC YARN BALL SWAP!!
 

You will send your partner a project kit consisting of a one (or more) skein pattern and yarn of corresponding weight/length for the pattern. The really fun part is that you will first make the yarn into a "magic yarn ball."  This means that you re-wind the yarn yourself, hiding little trinkets and treats inside the yarn as you go.  Some ideas already suggested include tiny toys, candy, crafting supplies, jewelry, etc.

Since we're all crafty people, it goes without saying that we should craft some of the treats ourselves. You will be required to have 15-20 things in the yarn ball and at least 4-5 of them should be small crafts made by you. If you are sending more than one skein, you are only required to send one MYB.  The additional skein(s) can be sent as is.

Also, while I know not everyone can afford it, if its only one skein, try to get the nicest yarn you can afford. Im not saying go buy a forty dollar ball of cashmere yarn (unless you really want to, in which case you can be my partner!) but try to get something youd be excited to receive. I will try to group partners by interests, as well as how much they're able to spend on the yarn.  

When you sign up, let your partner know if you already know what you want the yarn for ("I would like yarn so I can make the MagKnits Sophie Bag"); or, if you have a general idea ("I would like yarn and a pattern for a felt handbag"); or, if you just want a surprise pattern. If you have more than one idea for a pattern, feel free to give your partner a choice of patterns (or books) to choose from.  
*PLEASE do not ask your partner for a photocopied pattern from a book. This is against copyright laws.*

*Special thanks to previous MYB organizers from whom I shamelessly borrowed most of this information!

Anyone want to do a crochetalong for 13 amigurumis for the year??  I'm always making amis and would love to share with fellow crocheters!!   Grin

I don't know exactly what amis I'm going to make through the year and I know I'll be making waayyyyyy more than 13, so for me I'm going to do amis from my own patterns.  I'm not going to count the ones from other patterns cuz I'd be way over the count!! lol, You, however, could count whatever ones you want!!! 

Claim your spot and make your list!!
