1  XtraTuf Boots for Spring Time! in Crochet: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: March 21, 2014 06:01:28 PM
When someone asks me, "Please make something for a forthcoming baby," cutesy hats and frilly newborn shoes rarely come to mind. Enter the rain boots. Ready for splashing, mud, and generally being an outdoorsy, carefree child! With these boots, your babe is ensured its standing in the "hip" and "with it" crowd. Pair them with a slouchy hat and buffalo check flannel and s/he is ready to hit the vintage boutiques before heading to the indie-rock show in the basement of a warehouse.

2  Crocheted Crab - Crustacean Sensation! in Halloween Costumes by hooked on amicute on: November 08, 2013 03:04:02 PM
My very good friend and I used to laugh for hours doing crab impressions, scuttling past windows and confusing family members and our other "normal" friends. I decided I would crochet a crab costume in honor of our memories and the many laugh-until-you-cry-and-then-choke moments.

I crocheted a scoodie, which is a scarf with a hood, and attached crab claw pockets at the end. Since I live in Alaska, it's nice to have something to keep me warm-ish while out and about for Halloween shenanigans. I made the left claw bigger than the right claw to be crab-atomically correct. *click clack*

I also crocheted a crab shell backpack which I finished in time for the second weekend out, mostly because I always seem to lose essential things such as credit cards, phone, house keys, etc. on Halloween night. I wanted a prop that would double as a purse/backpack! I sewed a zipper at the top opening to keep my treasures safe inside the shell!

I hope you like my crab costume! It was so much fun to wear!!

3  Football Player with Removable Helmet! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: March 13, 2013 10:58:26 AM

A special request, this football player will be in the tiny baby hands of a future football fan very soon! He's an Ohio Buckeye football player and is holding the team mascot, a buckeye nut, in his right hand. I embroidered the red, white, and black stripes on his helmet, his shirt sleeves, and pant legs. I also embroidered his hair on after searching for "how to crochet hair" on Google - I'm very happy with how the hair looks! I crocheted the entire doll in my make-up-as-you-go style! My first time crocheting a human and I'm super pleased how he turned out! This is also my first time crocheted numbers and I loved it! I hope you love him just as much as I do!  Cheesy

4  Lockwood the Bad Puppy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: September 10, 2012 12:21:07 AM
Meet Lockwood the Bad Puppy. He's always getting into trouble: rustling through the trash, hiding in the newly folded laundry, chewing up slippers, and peeing on the floor. But how can you stay upset with him for long with that little face?

Little Lockwood the Bad Puppy didn't quite make it outside!

5  Wesley the Piglet in Panda Costume (with bamboo!) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: August 23, 2012 02:32:08 AM
Meet Wesley the piglet in panda costume (with bamboo!). He's so shy the only time he feels confident is when he's wearing a big, scary costume. Try not to startle him; he might maul you with his paws!

Wesley is so happy to have met his new friend, Take-chan

Wesley + Take-chan = friends forever

He's a little self-conscious when you take his hood off

Panda for a day

A friend asked me to crochet her a panda and I immediately thought to myself, "A panda? How normal." Thus Wesley was born. Now I don't want to give him away. I plan to make more Wesley's in various costumes in the near future. Stay tuned!

6  Walton the dancing beaver and his log friend in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: August 23, 2012 02:14:42 AM
Walton is a little odd, so the other beavers say. He mumbles to himself, doesn't like to share, and swims around in circles with his big, flat tail. But really, Walton is just a sweet little woodland creature that just wants to be left alone. Sometimes, he jumps up on the finest log around and does a little boogie for no one in particular. If you happen to see Walton the next time you're camping, leave him be and you just might get to see his dance.

*Beaver pattern by Amy Gaines. Log pattern by i ♥ amicute.

Walton. Just dancing for no one in particular. Having fun all the same.

Nom nom nom

Waving goodbye to the geese flying south for the winter. Time to stock up on more wood!

7  Mini Totoro and Cat Bus! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: January 24, 2012 02:51:27 AM
Totoro slept through his alarm this morning and nearly missed the cat bus! Good thing he has his spinning top!

This was a personal challenge as well as a commissioned piece. Little by little, I pieced the bus together over the course of several months. I didn't use a pattern and this design is all my own. I used stills from the movie as a reference and let my hands and mind do the work! I especially love the mice headlights. I couldn't leave those off, of course!

This Totoro and cat bus combo will soon be adopted by a blue-eyed soon-to-be three year-old! They're nervous to move into a new home, but so excited for a new play-mate!

Here's the Craftster link to my Totoro Halloween costume I crocheted and sewed myself! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=393905.0

Here, Totoro is peeking out the door to make sure he doesn't miss his bus stop!

This is Ollie the Owlet. Ollie is in 4th grade. Sometimes her other classmates bully her because she's "too quiet" or "weird," but Ollie is just daydreaming about when she grows up and becomes a prominent activist working to end discrimination and bullying in schools. ♥ Go Ollie!

9  Penelope the Bunny in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: December 20, 2011 01:54:23 AM
Penelope is a shy bunny, but the moment you turn on the tunes, her paws start moving all on their own! She loves to boogie when no one is watching.  Wink

Boogie, boogie

Edward enjoys picnics in the park, duck-gazing, and frolicking among fields of wildflowers. He's really just like you and me - just in bear form!
