6001  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: lion brand jamie doll on: March 26, 2005 06:31:50 AM
It is an old Coats and Clark pattern.. called crochet dog.  Creative naming back in the day.
I do have the original of this.
The dog is fantastic.
I did sell one at a craft show a few weeks ago.. as a matter of fact that and my own pattern of an octipus baby rattle was ALL that I sold.
I apparantly wasn't in the right place for my craft.  There was a little old lady selling stuff for half of what I was pricing at and her stuff was all cheap stuff - acryllic potholders and worsted weight yarn baby booties and whatnot.
I don't think she sold much either though. 
I won't be going back there again!  I am going to a more upscale neighborhood next time.
I think people would be more willing to buy better quality things if they dont' shop exclusively at Walmart. Not that Walmart is a bad place and all.  We have one up the road that is sooooo nice for a walmart.
Drop me a line sometime.

awww. make me blush!
Here are a few more I did.
I love making stuffed stuff.  
The dogs were made with homespun lion brand - I am starting to sound like an advertisement for lion brand here-
The bears were made with rr ss.
It was a patons pattern. I had to adjust the muzzle size since it was just massive. .. and the ears I had to downsize as well but all in all I really like that bear pattern.  I am going to make some up with the homespun as well.  I love the homespun for stuffed animals.  It makes them soooooo soft!

6003  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / cathedral window afghan on: March 26, 2005 04:50:17 AM
This one I finished about this time last year.  It was a bear to do.. lots of color changes and in parts it was just oddly written.
It took far too long to complete but I loved it.  It was on the cover of the Award Winning Afghans booklet I bought a few years ago.  It was shown hanging on a wall behind a piano and I envisioned hanging it above my staircase but I have no clue how to hang something that big, round and made of yarn.  I will make one for myself someday.

6004  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / lion brand jamie doll on: March 26, 2005 04:47:31 AM
Here are a few of the lion brand Jamie dolls I made.
The pattern was a freebie I have no idea how long ago.  It was also published in a magazine that I had gotten at a second hand store.
It was suppose to have been made with lion brand jamie- hence the ever so creative name they came up with for her... but I used rh ss... I also adjusted the hair and had to design some clothes for her.  Shown is just 3 of the dresses I designed.  I will be working on designing more dolls to go into the clothes I designed so I can have a completely my own doll again!
6005  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / slinky angel on: March 26, 2005 04:19:57 AM
Here is another oddity I made.. a slinky doll.

I also made a ragdoll and a bear as well.  I have no idea why I did this.  Looking back I must not have been in a right frame of mind.  My creativity went just a little off....

6006  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / my crochet aliens on: March 26, 2005 04:13:24 AM
Here are some aliens I designed last year.  They get a lot of eyebrows and laughs when people see them.

Of couse nobody wanted to publish them though.. I won't give up!
I have no idea how many designs I have done already.  I am going to take some time after my next craft show and finish getting them copywritten.

Next time I make more I am planning on using that obnoxious bright lime green.  At the time this was the only shade I had in a green other than hunters.

I also designed a working spaceship for the aliens to ride in.
It has a door like a moat draw bridge.
6007  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crochet me's Fleuri bag on: March 26, 2005 04:00:04 AM
I have also been eyeing that crochet me bag... as well as a few other projects on that site.. I love the simplicity of the book thong. So easy.
I did play around with the neck vine and made a few of them in different weight yarns.  I am allergic to lanolin in wool (talk about an itchy  rash!) so I couldn't use the yarn suggested by the designer on that one.  I did try some red heart ss and it came out nice - at least the vine part.  I didn't get to the berries or the pom poms.  I am not a big pom pom person so I was going to crochet up some flowers to attach to the little stem parts you are suppose to attach the pom poms to then leaves where the berries go.  I will work on that in the next few days and hopefully get some pics up.

Anyway.. the fleuri bag.. love the idea of the zipper.   I  think I see a trip to walmart for some zippers.  Figurs too since I saw that huge bag of zippers at the second hand store for like $2 and thought to myself what in the hell would I do with all those friggin zippers???!!  Well... now I know what I could have done with them... purses.  Well.  Live and learn and don't let a good opportunity slide by again!

I am thinking of making mine in a purple and red mix of some sort - no not those red hat lady style.  I have it in my head.  Maybe a fuschia and rich purple?  Well.  I will play with it in my head and see what I can get done.  I like the wrist strap.. so much more economical than rings...

6008  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: shell help? on: March 25, 2005 07:14:19 AM
This is probably a far too late to help you.
That stitch that is on the shell is a popcorn of sorts... a cluster.
You do your say 4 dc.. then take your hook out, put it in the first one and the last one and pull the hook through.
You can also do a popcorn by doing your dcs but not finishing them off - like you are going to do a decrease then on the last dc pull it through all the loops on  your hook.

I am sorry I didn't know this board existed until today.. with my almost fanatical search for amigurumi stuff!

6009  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet in rounds? on: March 25, 2005 07:07:53 AM
I crochet in the round all the time.
There are two ways to do this....
most of the times you do not join... you just go round and round and round.
I use a 3 inch or so piece of yarn as a stitch marker then when I get round to where the yarn is on the row beneath I move the yarn up... so if you are chain 2, 6 sc in 2nd chain... then it might say like 2 sc around.. just keep going around , crocheting in the first sc.. move your markers.

The other way is to join.  so if you do our 6 sc or whatever, you join wiht a slip to the first sc to make a circle, chain one and sc in the same sc.. or you could do a chain2 and then move on to your next stitch and when you get around to that first ch2, you sc in the 2nc chain - that takes the place of doing a sc in the same stitch as the chain..
If you do the chain one and sc in same, you would join with a slip to the first sc - completely ignoring the chain1.  This leaves a bit of a bigger bump where  your rows will connect whereas doing that chain 2 instead of the chain1, sc leaves it a bit flatter.

Most of the animal patterns I have do not join after every round.. you just keep going round and round and round.

I hope that helps out .  It makes sense to me but then I do it second nature.
My next conquest - amigurumi if I can fin the patterns anywhere!
6010  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Tanuki (Amigurumi Crochet) on: March 25, 2005 04:18:34 AM
I am in love with the Amigurumi animals.. and want to make them.  I am afraid to order the books because I think I might not be able to translate them at all.  My husband knows someone who can translate them - maybe.  I am not sure.
I wish I had a sample to see if he is able to translate.
Anyone willing to trade something?  I would love to just get my eyes on a pattern to see if I can make heads or tails of it all.  I am willing to buy them off of ebay but am just scared.  The books are extremely expensive but I am just intrigued by them all.  Love the look of them..
Maybe I should start watching anime.  My husband likes it to a point but I have yet to get that interest... I would rather crochet them I suppose.
