21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / finding yarn online on: January 07, 2011 10:17:31 PM
hello,
 I've been trying to find good places to buy yarn online, and I thought who would know better than people who use it constantly? I do mostly amigurumis and use red heart, impeccable solids, vanna's choice and caron simply soft.  Any help in finding this yarn online at a good price is appreciated.  Smiley
22  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Meta Knight Amigurumi on: November 09, 2010 09:37:35 AM




A week or two ago I was needing an outlet for my school-stressed-mind.  Naturally, I turned to crocheting.  Unfortunately I first attempted two very difficult projects that only served to frustrate me more (theyre still in the works). So I tried to figure out an easier project to do that was still my own design.  Nerdigurumi about that time released a Kirby amigurumi and Beau as an avid fan of Super Smash Bros. asked me to try and make Meta Knight.  Working on him as I could with school and our new Kinect distracting me, I managed to finish this up yesterday.  Beau is pretty pleased with how he turned out and I think he is pretty awesome too.  Sadly, Beau is going nuts doing a CS(computer science) project for school and hasnt gotten around to making his sword yet.  Hopefully hell find some free time soon and make Meta Knight complete
As always the pattern is on my blog:http://shedko247.wordpress.com/2010/11/09/meta-knight/

23  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Sneasel on: October 28, 2010 05:30:42 PM


     This one has been on my to do list for a long time now.  Its taken me a while to build up the confidence to attempt her. (Yes it is a her, the head feather is longer on the male lol)  She is really pretty easy to do, because I managed to squeeze her in between all of the assignments I had to do this past week.  The trickiest part for Beau was making her yellow gems.  We made them the same way we did Espeons, except, instead of just letting the glue pool, he had to keep working back and forth to get the glue to form a smooth oval. He gave it a little coat of paint and voila!  All in all I think she turned out pretty cute.

24  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bellossom on: October 16, 2010 11:18:56 AM



Bellossom is a very colorful and simple Pokemon.  The hardest part was figuring out the placement of the leaves.  I started her after getting frustrated with another pokemon pattern I was trying and just needed to take a break.  I think she turned out great and I hope she brings a smile to everyone!

25  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pumpkin Girl on: October 09, 2010 07:22:49 PM


I was looking for a quick and easy project to do in my free time, and didnt want anything too complicated, but wanted to be original.  Since its Halloween I thought I would try to make something to go with the holiday and came up with this cute little girl.  She is pretty little, only 6″ tall.  This was a nice stress relief from classes and getting stuck on a new pokemon pattern.  Shes sitting with all my other Halloween decorations and is a nice fit.



Don't worry, new pokemon pattern to come soon!

As always, the pattern is on my blog:http://shedko247.wordpress.com/2010/10/09/pumpkin-girl/
26  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / LINK (twilight princess) on: September 29, 2010 11:52:23 AM
I hope you guys really like it and if need any help, feel free to ask because it was hard to write it all out in a pattern, specifically the assembly.

     From the beginnning of my amigurumi making, there have been certain people that Beau has really wanted.  Some of them are still definitely on the wait list, but this summer I agreed to attempt to make Link from the Legend of Zelda.  Since we started playing Twilight Princess(GCN version), he of course wanted him to look that way.  Unfortunately this meant that I had to be very creative and make the pattern by myself.  






      Starting with a generic body, I worked on it in spurts.   All the while not really knowing if it was going to happen or not. But, by the beginning of September, Link was coming together very nicely.  I could do all of the bodily parts of Link in crochet, but there are just some things that define Link that crochet did not do justice(ie. the master sword, hyrulian shield).  So, Beau offered to attempt to sculpt them out of clay.  These are his first attempts doing so, and I think he did an AMAZING job.  He made the master sword, hyrulian shield, his arm gauntlet, a bomb, the gale boomerang and the heros bow with an arrow of light.  He has plans to make some other ones later, but for the moment is happy to rest and just enjoy the finished project.




As always the pattern is on my blog....

29  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Espeon on: August 17, 2010 12:06:50 AM
For several months now I've been asked by my fianc (and amigurumi felter) Beau to make a couple of our favorite Pokemon: Umbreon and Espeon.  But without a pattern those projects got pushed to the back of the queue in favor of others.

Recently, another crocheter whose patterns are very good, and whom I've made amigurumis from before, posted her own pattern for Umbreon.  A week later we had our own Umbreon and were pretty pleased.  That is until I suggested to Beau that it might be possible for me to alter her pattern for Umbreon a little to make Espeon.  Since Espeon is his favorite Pokemon, he immediately jumped on board for that idea and I'm pleased to say I think Espeon turned out very well.  His ears, whiskers, and tail are all my own design, while the body is the same as Umbreon's.  We finished felting it earlier today and even tried to make it look more authentic by making the jewel on its forehead out of a dab of hot glue which we then painted to match Espeon's.

To help make the tail more posable and like Umbreon's from pictures we're going to put a thin wire inside it.  Beau is very happy with it and hopefully Wolfdreamer (the other crocheter) will be proud of the alterations as well.



Body, Legs, Head
After looking around online for an Espeon pattern, I came across Wolfdreamers Umbreon she created.  I realized that with a few adjustments to her pattern I could make Espeon.  I give her full credit for the body, and after asking permission from her, I am linking to her blog so that you can make the body part to go with the rest.

Fasten off.

Tail
Round 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Round 2-32: *sc in each sc* around (6)
Fasten off.

To create added piece to make the Y
Round 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Round 2-10: *sc in each sc* around (6)
Fasten off.



Assembly
Attach legs and head to body using yarn or string that is close to the color.
Sew ears on head making sure that they lean so they get the angle Espeons ears have.
Whisker: Attach the small whisker to the larger whisker about round 5 or 6.  Sew whiskers underneath ears
Tail:  Attach small part of the tail to the larger around round 11 (it may vary, just make sure that it creates a nice even Y when done)
Create the face and ears with felt (we just hot glue it, but it can be sewn on with thread that is the same color)
The red spot on his forehead is created by making a dollop of hot glue on a piece of paper and painting it red.  It could also be crocheted in a magic ring with 3 or 4 sc, around.

30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purse and Wallet on: June 11, 2010 10:16:27 PM
So I have been working on this for a long time.  I have always wanted to crochet a purse that I would actually use and  be able to hold all my stuff.  I have seen a lot of sewn purses that looked like this before and decided to make my own but in crochet. It was pretty simple, but the repetition got boring.  Finally though, I am able to lug all of my stuff around in this bag.





I wanted the back of the bag to look as good as the front so I made sure to have the handles go all the way down the back too.



This wallet allows me to be able to reach in and grab what I need quickly.  The colors are a little off in these picture.  The purse green and the wallet green are the same color but look different.  Thats what I get for using a cheap camera I guess.  



The wallet is lined with the same material as the purse.  I have never sewn before and a friend of mine recommened getting a craft(permanent) clear drying glue that would hold my linings together.  It has been a week and my lining is still holding up, just as good as they day I put it up.  I may never learn to sew because of this glue
