35  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / How to be a Guy in a Mustache on: January 07, 2012 05:23:00 PM
My brother, Jose, often asks for a monocle and a top hat. For classiness of course. Sadly I didn't make him either. But then I saw this wonderful pattern: http://easymakesmehappy.blogspot.com/2011/02/crochet-mustache-pattern.html I had an idea. In my family, mustaches are widely known as powerful things. And when I think of classy things, I always think of this picture: http://static.simpledesktops.com/desktops/2010/08/19/Monocle_gray.png which obviously shows an epic mustache. So I decided to make him a mustache kit.



I found all of these ideas online:

36  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Squidapus Pillow on: January 07, 2012 04:36:43 PM
Yes, yes, I know this is just a squid, but it sounds cooler calling him a Squidapus, dont'cha think? Anyways, this was my first sewing project as well as my gift to Jesus for Christmas! One day, my brother e-mailed me a pattern to this:http://blogs.philadelphiaweekly.com/style/2009/02/12/fridiy-8-foot-giant-squid-pillow/ and wrote, "You should totally make this! :O" This was on July 10th, 2011.
When I read this I merely smiled, thought what a cool pillow that was, closed it, and went on looking for crochet patterns. Around November, I tried to figure out what to make for Jesus for Christmas and the squid pillow popped into my mind. Knowing this was the perfect gift for him this year, and that he most likely forgot about it, I got two yards of a soft purple fabric, one yard of a nice stripped fabric, got out my mom's sewing machine, and stared at it. "I don't know how to sew", I thought.
Well, luckily, my mom did. She thought me how to use the sewing machine and let me start with my project. Making the legs was the hardest. I often had to re-sew them but in the end, it was worth it. Some of the pillow was hand-sewn and some of it was with the machine but all in all he loved it.
The pillow was pretty big, so I had to wrap it in the Christmas Tree Box Smiley. When he tore off the wrapping paper and saw the box, I exclaimed, "I got you a Christmas tree Cheesy" He laughed, opened the box, and hugged his pillow.
And so ladies and gentlemen I present to you, Squidapus!!!:



Wait a second.....who are you? I don't remember adding a mustache to Squidapus?!!!



Ah there you are!!!!





37  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Felt Painting on: January 07, 2012 01:42:16 PM
Catalina (my sister) was a bit tricky to find a Christmas present for. Freaking out about it, I stared at my calendar and counted the weeks before Christmas . And then it hit me. I was staring at my calendar, with paintings by Karen Gillis Taylor http://www.karengillistaylor.com/. I flipped back to September, I believe, and stared at my favorite painting from the calendar http://www.karengillistaylor.com/watertown.jpg. With felt I had had over the years, some old jeans I grew out of, and thin square pieces of wood, I made her this.
I cut up my jeans (for the sky) to cover up the one of the wood pieces and then hot glued it on. All of the felt was added with hot glue too. I added more detail with dimensional fabric paint. I painted the biggest of the pieces of wood purple and with some weird type of glue, that smelled like gasoline for about a day after it was applied, I glued the two pieces of wood together.


My sister got married in October and when she opened this, she turned to her husband and said, "Look! It's our first work of art for our house!" Cheesy
