I love Regular Show....and character hats. So after some head scratching I came up with this idea for a Rigby hat. I think it came out pretty well, but I'm not as happy with it on a head as I am off. Maybe I need to make my dimensions a tad bit smaller. No matter, my son loves it, and that makes me happy
I sprained my foot a few days ago, and have been laid up since Tuesday night. I've made four of these already
You'll need: G hook F hook 2 different shades of yarn 2 small buttons a small amount of felt stuffing
Worked in rounds
EYES: use F hook make a magic ring 5 sc into magic ring(5) 2 sc into every sc(10) fasten off, leave a long tail for weaving sew buttons to center
BODY: use G hook make a magic ring 6 sc into magic ring (6) 2sc into every sc (12) (1 sc, 2sc into next sc) 6 times (18) (sc, sc, 2 sc into next sc) 6 times (24) (sc, sc, sc, 2sc into next sc) 6 times (30) (sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc into next sc) 6 times (36) sc around for 4 rounds (sc in 4 sc, decrease next 2) 6 times (30) sc around for 6 rows (sc in 3 sc, decrease next 2) 6 times (24) sc around for 3 rows fasten off, leave long tail for sewing
sew eyes to body about 4 rows down stuff body, leaving top corners unstuffed bring top together and whip stitch closed. Cut a small triangle from felt and hot glue under the eyes.
(sorry about grainy pic, my camera needs batteries)
We've had quite a heatwave here recently, and my son only has pajamas with pants. I suggested he wear only his pj shirts, or no pj's at all. But he's a very particular kid, and would not hear it.
So I dug through the dark and mysterious craft closet and found two old t-shirts that were close in color. I whipped up some shorts from one, and used McCall's 3199 tank top pattern for the second t-shirt, though it may discontinued now.
Quick and dirty, this project took me just a couple hours in the morning. And now he has his summer pajamas
And a need to have my mom's approval. Which she does, but she doesn't exactly love my multiple tattoos.
So I thought it would be cute to make a tattoo she could approve of. The classic MOM tattoo....in pillow form
I found the heart pillow pattern for free on Ravelry. Then I just single crocheted a white banner, and made a quick "MOM" cross stitch pattern on graph paper. I've never done any cross stitch before, so just winged it. It's a tad wonky, but I still love the way it came out.
Happy Mother's Day! (I'm heading to Mom's house to hand this over)
OK, mine's not really a camera. Just plastic canvas, and crocheted arms and legs.
Like almost everything else I make, this came about after my son begged for his own Beemo. I googled and found some inspiration online. Then I just had to buy some graph paper and map out the pattern.
I made it so I can make different faces and my son can slide them into his "screen", but so far I only have one face. I just couldn't wait to post this Also, I left top piece open on 3 sides, like a lid, so my son can store extra faces in there.
Edited to add: Here is an extremely crude, but hopefully not too confusing chart with instructions for your very own Beemo.
My son loves Angry Birds, and has been pestering to make him the pig for months now. Since it's getting to be hat weather around here, I thought I'd kill two birds (pigs?) with one crocheted stone.
I did a simple single crochet round for the hat body. Two small circles for the eyes, and an oval that i just kind of made up as I went along for the nose. The ears are in the round in half-double crochet (5, 10, 20, 20, 10, 10). I then sewed black felt nostrils, pupils(?), and inner ears on, Whipstitched all the pieces together, add a couple eyebrows...
I started making this for my mom's birthday. But I couldn't really get into it. maybe I was burnt out from all the Christmas crochet I did. Anyway, it turned into a Happy 2 weeks after your birthday present.
I used a Joann's brand yarn called 'Sensations'. It's acrylic, but nice and soft. The hat is a simple beanie pattern from the Bernat website, I think. The scarf is worked in 2 rows single crochet, 2 rows V-stitch pattern. very simple. I made it up myself
It finally turned out very nice and very cozy. Which is necessary in Michigan right now.
I posted in the stenciling board a couple days ago. Upset that I couldn't post pics until my 10th post, I decided to get crafting! so this is #2, please visit links to pictures....
I have a tshirt addiction. I like to buy anything that I deem "quirky" from garage sales, or resale shops. I have piles and piles... I mean I don't think I'll be on Hoarders anytime soon, but it is definitely more than a collection.
anyhooo... I finally got around to reconning one. it was a men's large Speed Racer (the old school cartoon, not the movie) tee.
I created a pattern from one of my daughters tops, added a ruffle at the bottom, and now its a cute dress!
I am super proud because its my first real recon, first ruffle, and first self drafted pattern! comments and suggestions encouraged
