1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Compulsive Shawl! on: July 27, 2012 06:05:53 PM


So this is the first big project I have ever made.  Well, perhaps the Gossamer girls count as big.  They are certainly extremely complex.  I have tried to make things this size before, but I always lost interest. For some reason, I could not put this shawl down at all.  All I wanted to do was work on it.



The only problem is, I don't really wear colours.  I'm more of an all black all the time kind of person.  So I will hang onto this until the winter holidays and use it as a gift. 



Since I finished this, I started another shawl inspired by the beast of Gevaudan, which I am more likely to wear.  I want to make more shawls with images rendered in them.  It is surprisingly fun. 

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mercy- A Custom Gossamer Girl doll, designed by me. on: July 12, 2012 11:14:11 PM
Hello!  I've had a membership here for ages, but I am attempting to be more social.  So I thought I'd post some pictures of some of the dolls I've made.  Forums count as social, right?

This is Mercy.  She is actually the first of her kind, one of my Gossamer Girl dolls.  I wanted to design some handmade dolls that could wear American Girl doll clothing, but with my particular aesthetic. I am also into ball jointed dolls, and these have a similar perspective.  But with yarn.  And much cheaper clothing available.

I'm not sure if she really belongs here.  She is crocheted, but she doesn't have the same look as most amigurumis.  I started with more classic looking creatures, but these days I'm just a dollmaker who happens to use crochet.  I love how I can get detail in the shaping with it.

Mercy was the first doll I was really pleased with.  I made her clothing too, except for her shoes.  I feel like she is something to be proud of, but I would really like to hear if other people like her as well.
