11  Day of the Dead Skull + Pattern in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by ayanared on: October 19, 2011 02:46:31 PM
Okay, so I made another skull - with a mouth in a better position.  What do you think?



It is a quick little project.  The skull is only about 3 inches long.

If you want to make your own, I made the pattern: 

What you will need:

Ivory yarn (a few yards)

Pink, purple, turquoise, and green yarn (about 6 inches each)

Black silvery yarn (about a yard)

Size G/6 4.25mm crochet hook

Needle and black thread

Flower for adornment

Head:
With ivory, Chain 2
Round 1: in 2nd chain from hook, sc 6 (6 sts). Place marker in last sc and move marker as you complete each round.

Round 2: 2 sc in each sc (12 sts)
Round 3 make mouth :  2 sc, sc in next 2 sc
    change to pink

sc in same sc

change to purple

sc in next sc

change to turquoise:

sc in next sc

change to yellow

sc in same sc

change to green

sc in next sc

change to purple

sc in next sc

change to pink

(sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc) twice, sc in next sc (18)

Round 4: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) around (24 sts)
Round 5: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) around (30 sts)
Round 6 shape chin: (2 sc, sc in next 4 sc) twice, sc2tog 5 times, (sc in next 4 sc, 2sc) twice (29 sts)
Round 7 continue to shape chin : sc in next 13 sc, sc3tog, sc in next 13 sc (27 sts)
Round 8 - 10: sc around (27 sts)
Round 11: (sc2tog, sc) around (18 sts)
Round 12-13: sc around (18 sts)
STUFF

Remaining Rounds: sc2tog until the head closes

Eyes make 2:
With Black Silvery yarn, Chain 2
Round 1: sc 6 in second chain from hook.  sl in first sc to close round.
Weave in strings.  Sew Eyes onto head.
Attach a crochet flower.

Note: Any crochet flower will do - but if you want the pattern for the flower I used, contact me, and I can make a pattern for that one. 

Thank you for looking!

Oh, and a pattern with images are on my blog: http://sensitivesnapdragon.blogspot.com/2011/10/updated-day-of-dead-skull-pattern.html

12  Day of the Dead Skull in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by ayanared on: October 18, 2011 04:18:14 PM


So, I worked on this skull (and pattern to share with you) ALL day.  I was so proud of it until I showed my husband.  He says the mouth is too far down - it looks like it is part of the chin!  What do you guys think?  I guess it is back to the drawing board!

16  Re: Energy Healing GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by ayanared on: July 07, 2011 07:16:08 PM
I got my package too!!!!!!

I love, love, love it.  Smiley!

First of all, I got some amazing energy rocks.


Action shot!


I also got a yoga mat holder! 


I love the fabric....

Speaking of fabric, Rosie gave me two yards of fabric in the styles that I LOVE.

I think I am going to make some pillows to throw on my couch... Or maybe a quilt... Oh the possibilities!

And button art:


And some of the cutest little shoes for my daughter (due on Sept 2)


And an incense holder:


And some awesome beads to add to my collection!  (I think I screamed when I saw them) Did you know that I collect beads?


And some wonderful soap.  Did you make this?  I can't wait to use it!


And my ABSOLUTE favorite!  A handmade journal cover!  (and when I say handmade, I mean she stitched every single stitch by HAND - and there are a LOT of stitches!).  This literally brought tears to my eyes!


Not only is the cover hand made, she decorated the pages inside with inspirational quotes.  Here is one of my favorites:


And when I am done with those pages, I can easily insert another journal.  Genius!

She also got some extras for my son:
Markers
and Maracas
(he loves them as you can see)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Rosie!  You were an awesome partner!!!!!

17  William Dickerson *mature images* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ayanared on: October 24, 2010 10:51:21 PM
When I was making a doll for the doll parts party swap, my sister got jealous.  I had planned on giving her the doll I recieved, but I loved him so much, I had to keep him for myself.

So, I made her a doll of her own.

Meet William Dickerson.  Dick for short.



He is a spiritual guy, communing with the heavens.  He meditates and practices yoga everyday.


He is very wise, indeed.


But don't be fooled by his calmness.  He is very masculine and can hold his own in any altercation.


And do you see that bulge in his pants?


It's not a banana...
