1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jack Skellington, from pumpkin king to sock toy! on: October 18, 2011 05:49:21 AM
So I recently did my very first swap!  I was a part of the Sock Monkey/Critter swap.  After reading my partners questionnaire (... and her profile, lol) I decided a standard monkey wasn't quite what I wanted to do.

And Jack Skellington was born!





Jack is made of two tube socks and is about 18" tall.  He's fully pose able since his body is fully wired.

I ran into a few snags along the way... like making him look skinny and ethereal.  Kinda tough with a sock but I think he came out rather well!

Hope everyone likes him as much I as liked making him Smiley
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Thrift store cheese tray to mini park scene? on: September 11, 2011 06:58:14 PM
A few months back, I found this old cheese tray thing at a thrift store and because it was half off day (only 50 cents! woooo!) I bought it.  I had no idea what on Earth to do with it though.  I have that problem, buying odd things that I *might* eventually use.

Anyway, I FINALLY did something with it. 

A few coats of paint and some fiddling with some of the weirder craft supplies I have (Im a crocheter so most of my stash is yarn) and my mini park was born!





I really love how this turned out but now I have no idea what to do with it... lol.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Norton, the gentlemanly koala on: September 10, 2011 09:48:45 AM
First Post! EEEEEEEE!



This little guy is Norton.  My husband took one look at him and said "Norton.  He's a gentlemanly koala."

Can't argue with that! 

Norton was kind of an accident.  I wanted to make a monkey but as the grey yarn worked up, I realized he was definitely a koala!  Smiley
