1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Scottish Sheep-Baaa! on: June 28, 2016 12:30:38 PM

In 2014, a friend of mine shared on her timeline the photo in this photo. What cute sheep they are! If I recall correctly, and I may not, they are Scottish Blackface. (I was corrected, they are Valais Blacknose from Switzerland) So I then said to myself, I can make those! I started the project. I crocheted the basic amigurumi, and started to individually place, like latch hook, then separate hundred upon thousands, now probably tens of thousands of strands of hair. I had put it away unfinished for half a year or more, and recently brought him out again. Today, I added his ears, and he is done! (Even his face is furry!)  I'd like your opinion....what should his (or her) name be?

Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make a piece of art, in your style, in your medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it flat(ish), and 4 inches by 6 inches in size. You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  You also have to "check in" with me, the organizer in the week after the sign ups close - this lets me know that you are ready to send. If you do not check in, you will be removed from the swap. And then you will only know their address and proper name. You will then have just under 1 week to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: Janauray 24 to January 31, 2016
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW January 24 to February 7, 2016
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of February 4-6.  Anyone who has not checked in by midnight (EST) on February 6 will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed on  February 7
~ You must ship February 8-12, 2016

Swap Rules:  
~ Please communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!

I've recently started making baby cocoons. My cat, Zazzles, was the perfect model for this super soft and fuzzy mermaid tail!

Anyone else miss the almost monthly 4x6 swaps? It's been what, 1/2 year now since the last round....anyone up for another? Would the previous organizer like to, or if not I can as I've also organized a round of this before.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Round 60 Inch Pineapple Tablecloth on: January 28, 2015 04:55:42 PM
A little over a year ago, one of my high school bff's asked me if I could crochet a round pineapple stitch tablecloth for her.  She said there was no rush in it, so I've worked on it off an on throughout this time. It's taken me about 70 hours, and has 55 rounds.  One of my friends thought it was so funny that I chose to use a 3.5 mm hook for the crochet thread, but it's worked out great.  I am so ecstatic about how it's turned out, and I'm relieved it's finally complete.

As I don't have a round table in my home, the picture is taken at my local library.

Thanks for looking!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mr Wise Owl on: January 12, 2015 07:01:06 PM
This is Mr Wise Owl.

You can find his pattern in the book Crocheted Wild Animals:

He was so fun to make. Thanks for looking.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My First Crocheted Tree Topper on: December 03, 2014 06:13:30 PM
While I've done tons of crocheting lately, this is the first project I've shared on here in a long time.  I've done blankets, and a few bags, and lots of amigurumi, but never anything that's needed to be blocked or starched, until now.

I was asked to me an angel tree topper.  This was a free pattern I found online, that I gave a slight variation to. I'm still learning about how to best starch, etc, and this is before one more last round or two, but I'm excited to share this gorgeous 9" angel tree topper with you!

Thanks for looking.  Have a wonderful holiday.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lined Green Organizer Bag on: August 30, 2014 04:12:06 PM
I had made several pairs of squares from an afghan book and decided to make them into a small bag. Instead of adding a strap, I made it a small organizer bag. It's about 9" squared. I'm pretty excited because it's my first time with lining a bag, and with using magnetic closutes, or actually any closure like that. Next time, I'll add my closure a little lower so u can sew it in above and below it, but I am super pleased with my first try.

Thanks for looking!

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Marine Amigurimi Doll on: June 06, 2014 02:39:49 PM
I was commissioned by a friend to crochet a Marine amigurimi keepsake doll for one of her family members who will be completing bootcamp in a couple weeks.  I mostly used the same pattern from a book I have and changed it up to resemble as closely as possible with as much detail a Marine.  Except for the hat which is sewn on, all the clothes are removeable.  She measures about 20-21".

  For more "in progress" pictures, you can visit my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/EmalieAlexander.  If you like what you see, I would love for you to give the page a "like."

Thanks for looking!
