1  Josh, The Stoner Bunny in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by ThatNanda on: November 03, 2009 07:30:31 AM
Here's the latest in my collection of amigurumi punk delinquents, Josh, The Stoner Bunny.  His half-lidded eyes indicate that he's a bit more laid back than my other kids...  Can't imagine why.  Favorite part?  Those white-boy dredlocks.  I made a doll wig out of wool felting yarn, and used a tiny bit of the leftover to make his obligatory goatee.  Hardest part?  Cutting out and stitching that miniscule felt pot leaf onto his tie-dye shirt - It really wanted to fall apart.  For the record, I don't advocate any illegal activities (Josh might, but he's a minor, so don't go too hard on him).

2  Steampunk Halloweenies! in Halloween Costumes by ThatNanda on: November 03, 2009 06:37:32 AM
My boyfriend and I went as a steampunk couple this year - I was a air pirate and he was a time-travelling detective.  With the exception of my hat, goggles, boots and gloves, everything on my costume was made from scratch.  His was mostly thrifted, but I made his goggles from some tins I found at the craft store and some recycled plastic italian ice cups, and I'm especially proud of them.

3  Number 1 in the hood, G. *Instructions included* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by ThatNanda on: February 17, 2009 07:00:02 PM


Everyon'e favorite giant talking Milkshake.  The pattern was not my own, though I did alter it quite a bit.  The original can be found here:  http://www.instructables.com/id/Crocheted_Master_Shake/

And here are my changes to the pattern:

The Body = same as original pattern

The Lid: 

Same until after  Ch 1, (7 sc, 2 sc in next sc), repeat around, ss in first sc to join. 

Next, Sc around, BLO.

sc around for two more rows, slip st twice, tie off and weave in ends.


THE STRAW: 

Change to size F hook

6 sc in magic ring (work this part in the spiral)

1 sc in each sc. Repeat 16 times.


THE ARMS: (X2)

Change to size E hook

Ch 5

1 sc in each st (4 sc total).  Repeat once.

Picot the edge as follows -  ch 3 in first sc, ch4 in next sc, ch 5 in next sc, ch 4 in next sc, slip st down side twice.   Reverse order for other glove.


Then as far as the face goes, after he was all sewn together, I glued felt half moons in butter and black to the front with Fabri-tac, painted the little white half moons in the pupils with a detail brush and some white craft paint, then embroidered the mouth, chin and around the eyes with black pearl cotton.  Because he's for decoration and not play, I made the stitches long so they'd be seamless.  And that's it.  Smiley

5  Quilted Advent Calendar Wallhanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by ThatNanda on: December 29, 2008 05:24:35 PM
This is one of those projects that took forever, but I am so pleased with the results.  My son loves guessing what's going to be in each pocket every morning - it has become one of our favorite Christmas traditions.

6  Vintage Christmas Cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by ThatNanda on: December 29, 2008 04:01:34 PM
Growing up as a little girl, my Dad used to cross stitch.  On our door every Christmas, he'd hang up a "Welcome" sign that he'd made.  When I became older, and started a family of my own, my Dad let me borrow his old pattern (thank goodness he hangs on to everything!) and make one for my own house.

7  The Christmas Manatee in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ThatNanda on: December 29, 2008 03:38:02 PM
For Christmas this year, my boyfriend made me a stuffed manatee, using his own pattern.  I loved it so much that I decided to make it a baby, using T4124's manatee pattern.  Now they're an adorable little family.  ^_^

10  Camo pants to bondage pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ThatNanda on: December 29, 2008 02:29:07 PM
I wanted to make my little sister a pair of bondage pants for Christmas.  I started with a pair of Tripp Camo pants that I found for cheap on ebay that had a few zippers on them:



They were a bit too small for her, so first I had to add an insert to the pants themselves, then all the straps, buckles, grommets, rivets, etc.  They had to be asymmetical due to the position of some of the zippers that were on them when I bought them, but I still think they came out super cute.
