1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pikmin Trio on: March 04, 2014 05:43:45 PM
So I bought a pattern for these pikmin on Etsy and I love them. They are so cute and easy to make.
If you dont know what pikmin are, they are little creatures from a distant planet in the Nintendo video game pikmin.
Thanks for looking.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sack Boy on: February 24, 2014 03:12:58 PM

Here's the sack boy I made. You may recognize him as the main character of Little Big Planet. He was fairly easy and quick to put together. I made him in a weekend, easily. I am not sure if I will bother with a mouth or not, he's already pretty cute. I finished him up at work, I am thinking the kids are gonna claim him pretty fast one I get home.
There is a free pattern on Ravelry if you want to make your own.
Thanks for looking.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / How to fix a pair of pants on: January 21, 2014 03:26:25 PM
So I bought a pair of grey/Taupe cords, but they were tighter in the calves then I like. So I thought I'd do this to them.

Well in my wisdom, I cut the front of one leg up to the knee, and the back of the other leg.
So my question is now what? I'd like to keep them as pants
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Making Minature food class? on: January 03, 2014 01:19:35 PM

I'd love to take a polymer clay class on making miniature food. I saw a greek webpage where she took a class and thought that would be fun. I couldn't find anything in my city, I thought someone might know of some online classes.
Here's the webpage I was talking about.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / River Song My Little pony plush on: November 17, 2013 07:31:43 PM


I made a River Song pony to go with the 11th Doctor Whooves I made and I just love how she turned out.
I had a lot of fun doing her hair and I think I will do more ponies like this.
Her Cutie Mark is a mixture of space travel and time lord. A lot of people use her journal as her cutie mark, but that's not who she is. I wanted to do something that had more to do with her being an adventurer and archaeologist. I did the space swirl in Tardis Blue. I think if she were a pony, her Cutie Mark would have appeared in the Episode Let's kill Hitler.
I may have analysed this a bit too much, lol.
Hope you like her.
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / All About Me Shoes on: October 10, 2013 08:08:14 AM
So I wanted to paint a pair of shoes and couldn't decide what theme I wanted.
 
So I ended up choosing them all.



It's bit of a mish mash. There is Rainbow Bright, Jem, Monster High, Dr. Who, Brave Bears, LSP, a wonky Hello Kitty,
a TokiDoki Unicorno and Pinkie Pie in Unicorno Style. Don't forget a rainbow and the Hulk.
Oh and Periwinkle the frost fairy.
Also a cupcake and a monkey.
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Back to school swap? on: September 22, 2013 05:31:50 PM
I was thinking it would be fun to do a back to school swap for adults. It would be back to school, in 2 ways.
School supplies made with a time and age in mind. Like if you wanted elementary supplies from the 80's. It could be all neon with Rainbow bright or Care Bears. Junior High and high school would be more music and pop culture all in a school supply theme. Choose your grade and decade. I've never organized a swap before so I'm open for suggestions.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / One eyed Kitty on: May 29, 2013 10:30:49 AM

This Hello Kitty doll was a gift to me from my pen pal in Japan, when I was 16. I have since then given it to my daughter and the eye popped out, maybe because it was old, I'm not sure. ANyway I didn't want a big hole there or to throw it away, so I made it an eye patch. I embroidered a design on it, the sewed the eye patch shape. I cut a hole in the back and turned it right side out. I didn't bother fixing the hole, since I sewed the patch onto the doll over the eye hole. I sewed on some ribbon and that was it. We now have a One Eyed Kitty, not to be mistaken with One-eyed Willy.
9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / Skip Beat dolls on: May 03, 2013 01:40:38 PM

I made these 2 dolls for IssikahJai for a Manga/Anime swap. They are made from Ghillie's Cupcake pattern.
They are Ren and Kyoko wearing non-removable felt clothes. I had a lot of fun making them and wanted to put as much detail as I could. Ren has a chain on his Jacket and Kyoko has her Princess Rosa necklace as well as a zipper on her jumpsuit. Their shoes are duct tape. In the manga Kyoko is always making dolls of her friends (sort of like Voodoo dolls) so I wanted to make them like she does in the manga. Hope you enjoyed looking.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Monster High Crochet Dress pattern on: April 14, 2013 08:42:54 PM


The Cake Dress
Using Aunt Lydia's crochet cotton, beads for buttons and a steel crochet hook. Mine was my grandmothers and says 7 on it, but I think it's really old and has no relation to now sizing. As far as gauge I just to the first 2 rows and measure around the dolls waist. In the pattern there is ways to make it wider if necessary.

Cast on 25
R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn (24 st)
R2: Ch2, (counts as dc) dc across to last stitch, 2 dc in last stitch. Turn (26)
R3-5: Repeat R2 (32)
R6: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st dc, sc 11, skip 1, 5 dc in next, skip 1, sc 2, skip 1, 5 dc in next, skip 1, sc 11, 2 sc in last. Turn (38)
R7: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st st, sc 17, skip 2, sc 17, 2 sc in last stitch, Turn (38)
R8: ch 1, sc 17, sc2tog twice, sc 17 (36)
R9:ch 1, 2 sc in 1st, sc 16, skip 2, sc 16, 2 sc in last (36)
R10:slip stitch across 5 stitches, ch 11, skip 9, slip across 8, ch 11, skip 9, slip in last 5, dont turn.
R11: Going down the side, sc 2, ch 6, skip 2 spaces, sc 2, ch 6, skip 2 spaces, sc 2, ch 6 skip 2 spaces, sc 2. (this is mostly just eyeballing 2 spaces to get 3 button loops evenly) You can add the
Note: If your top doesn't fit at the back, you can also do a couple rows on sc to make it a bit longer.
You can also stop here and leave it as a top.

Going across the bottom.

R1: ch 1, sc in bottom loops across (24)
R2:ch 2 (counts as 1st dc) dc in 1st stitch, 2 dc in each sc across (48)
R3:ch 3, 2 tr in 1st stitch, 3 tr in each across (144) turn
R4: ch 1 sc across in back loops only, join with slip stitch to 1st sc making a round. (144)
R5: ch 3 do not turn, tr in each stitch across join with slip stitch (144)
R6: ch 1, sc in back loops around, join with slip stitch
Continue rounds 5 and 6 until desired length. Be careful not to lose stitches at the end of your rounds.
Bind Off.

At this point what you do is optional. I used pink contrasting crochet thread and added a little ruffle. This is why you did the back loops.
Pick a row, sc at the back in a front loop, ch 6, skip 3 loops, sc, around.
Slip into 1st chain loop, ch1, (sc, ch6 sc) in 1st loop, ch 6, (sc ch6, sc) in 2nd loop and continue around. Bind off.
Skip 2 rows of front loops, do the same.
At the bottom, sc around, ch1, sc, ch6, skip 3 stitch, sc, around bind off.

This can be done in all front loop row, only around the bottom, you can do 3 rows of lace, or just 1.

Now that your dress is finished, put on your doll and measure for bead placement at the back. Sew on beads, this makes the dress easy to put on and off and you can choose how tight it will be on the doll and if you want it tighter at the waist. Make sure you use beads small enough to fit in the loops, they don't have to fit perfect.


Hope this pattern is easy to follow. Ask if you have any questions.
