Awesome little pattern. Thanks for sharing it. I finished up one of these for my sister's kid for Christmas in the same shades as the Edith hat I made a couple weeks ago.

I love these little worked from the top down patterns.  Cheesy

I love the idea that you painted one of those pumpkins. I bought a couple a few years ago and carved them, and HATED them. (I ended up sending them to my sister and her husband once they bought their house and didn't have much to decorate with.) And with the base and that funky face, he reminds me of something out of the Nightmare Before Christmas. He's got kind of a Burton-esque flair to him. Smiley
324  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Edith's Hat from Despicable Me on: September 18, 2011 12:47:22 PM
It took me two full tries and lots of frogging/swearing in between, but I finally have a child's sized hat like Edith's in "Despicable Me" for my niece for Christmas!

--H sized hook
--1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Baby Pink (#0724)
--1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Country Rose (#0374)

Start with the Light Pink (this hat is worked from the top down). Make a magic circle (chain 1 and 7 SC). Pull tight and secure with a slip stitch. Note: although it is not mentioned anywhere else in this pattern, all rows are secured with a slip stitch (before the end chain). The hat is not turned and the seam of where the rows are joined is the back of the hat.
Rows 1-2: Work 2 DC in each stitch around. Chain 2.
Rows 3-4: Work 1 DC in each stitch around. Chain 2.
Row 5: Work 1 DC in the first stitch, then 2 DC in the second stitch, *1 DC in the next and repeat * around.  Chain 2.
Row 6: Change to the Country Rose yarn. *Work 1 HDC in the first two stitches, 2 HDC in the next stitch, repeat from * around. Chain 2.
Row 7: Work 1 HDC in each stitch around. Chain 2.
Row 8: Switch to the Light Pink. *Work 1 DC in each of the first three stitches, 2 DC in the next stitch, repeat from the * around. Chain 2.
Rows 9-10: Work 1 DC in each stitch around.
Rows 11-12: Repeat row 6 in Country Rose.
Rows 13-15: Repeat  row 7 in Light Pink.
Rows 16-17: Repeat row 6 in Country Rose.Fasten off the yarn at the end of row 17.

Earflaps (Make 2):
Row 1: With the Light Pink, chain 11. Leave a long length for attaching the earflap to the hat.
Row 2: In the second chain from the hook, work 1 SC and then 1 SC in each stitch back. Chain 1.
Row 3: Work 1 SC in each stitch across and 2 SC in the last stitch. Chain 1.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2.
Row 5: Repeat Row 3.
Row 6: Work 1 SC in each stitch across. Chain 1.
Row 7: Work 1 SC in each stitch across and work the last 2 SCtog.Chain 1.
Row 8: Work first 2 SCtog and then 1 SC in each stitch across. Chain 1.
Row 9: Repeat Row 7. Fasten off your yarn with a slip stitch.

Flatten the hat with the seam on one edge. Find the center of each side and sew the earflaps into the INSIDE of the hat with whip stitches, using that length of Light Pink yarn you left. Attach them so the top flat edge is lined up on the Light Pink, somewhere around Row 15 (the pointed end faces down). Trim off any loose ends.

Instead of trying to do the ridges of Country Rose in Front and Back Post Crochets like I did with the other hat, I came back with the Country Rose and did rows of what I've always called "surface SC" between the Light Pink and Country Rose stripes. On the back of the hat at the seam points, attach the Country Rose with a slip stitch and chain 1. Around the posts between the colors, work SC's around the entire circumference of the hat. If you are having a hard time with this, check out http://morepjs.blogspot.com/2009/08/surface-crochet-crochet-tutorial.html. The "And Sew It Is" blog actually has a great description of what I'm talking about here and she even calls it the same thing!!!!

With the Light Pink yarn, cut three lengths of 24 each and then double over. Stick the crochet hook through the bottom center of one of the earflaps from the inside out and catch the loop where the yarns are doubled over together. Attach the yarns as if you were making a tassel. Pull the yarns snug and braid. Secure the end with a single knot and trim if necessary. Repeat this same action for the tassel on top of the hat, but cut the yarn into lengths of 20".

So amazingly creative! I picked up to skellies yesterday at Walgreens and my husband cut them apart for me. I got them finally finished up and here is my take on your project.

Thanks for sharing this idea! They look like something you'd see in a Ripley's Museum! Smiley
I used my hot glue gun to attach these guys at the hip, the pelvic bone and the ribs. erica_tattoos was able to mesh her twins ribs together for a tighter looking fit than I was able to do with mine. My husband suggested some epoxy to better hold them tight, so I used some steel epoxy (that's all I had) over the hot glue, and then covered it up with some slightly tinted white craft paint (steel epoxy dries to a gunmetal gray finish).

For size comparison. Cujo was weirded out by these guys. They started singing "O Solo Mio" when I took this picture. When Cujo left, they started teasing him and then moved on to singing Irish drinking songs. It's going to be a long Halloween season!
326  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Made a Hanging Lamp on: July 24, 2011 06:23:33 PM
I've been lurking here for ages it seems. Finally decided to reactive my account so I could actually post something here.

I'm still fairly assed out over how the "repairs" to my scooter are going from my June 3 accident. The place doing the repairs has my scooter AGAIN because it started leaking oil after I got it back from the original repairs. They've had it now since last Tuesday night, right before the service department closed for the day. I was supposed to get it back yesterday morning but they realized it's STILL leaking oil and they don't know why. I've been doing a lot of driving lately for work, and while I get reimbursed on gas, it's added to my paycheck and I've been hitting the gas station a lot more without having my scooter. Sometimes, I just can't scoot to work, because of stuff I'm hauling around. I need my ride back!!!!

That being said, I was able to finish one scooter-related project. I knew as soon as the insurance guy told me he approved the repairs, that I wanted my front fender. It has such a great lampshade shape to it, so I decided I would turn the fender into a hanging lamp for my crafting room. And I also wanted to somehow recycle some of my scooter parts, because they just would have been thrown out anyway.

I took photos as I went, but I don't know how to post them as actual photos here yet, so the link will have to suffice: http://amylynn98.blogspot.com/2011/07/making-best-of-busted-scooter.html. Any other lamp fans out there? I love making lamps. I've made an assortment of bottle lamps in the past, so this is my first non-bottle lamp and I'm very happy with how it turned out! Smiley

328  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / "I prefer rum.. Rum is good." on: March 24, 2010 06:41:33 PM
A while back, I saw that someone on Craftster.org  had posted a photo of a finished project she had created and crocheted: a very simple Jack Sparrow doll. She was selling the pattern in her Etsy store. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, so why would I bother paying for her pattern?

So, with a bit of swearing, crocheting, ripping apart, measuring, and redoing, I made my own Jack Sparrow amigurumi!

My only wish is that I had used a smaller crochet hook for his head and body. I had used a G sized hook so he's about 18" tall. He really was a stash buster for me. I bought the yarn for his skin and hair, and one package of beads. Everything else, I had here already. I worked on him off and on, starting on Dec. 22, 2009.

Good job! But just so you know, I actually like both versions. You did a great job on them.

Hee hee hee, oh he's adorable! His little outfit reminds me of the ones worn in that Will Ferrell ice skating movie. Smiley (And those eyes are too cool!)
