11  A bird for Grandma in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: September 04, 2010 12:12:16 PM
I made this bird for my grandma, who taught me to crochet at the beginning of the year. I made it right before we moved across the country in June. She passed away of cancer on August 17th. I did make it back in time to say goodbye, but I had to get home and she died while I was traveling home, so I wasn't able to attend her funeral. But I asked my mom to get this bluebird from her house and hang it in the church so I was there in spirit.

I love that her head is bigger than her body.

The pattern is from "Amigurumi Two!" by Ana Paula Rimoli. It's supposed to be part of a mobile, but I just made the big one

Um... was it really necessary to name names and point out feedback? Could you not have simply asked for an angel? I am really embarrassed about the situation as it is, and it isn't like I'm a complete flake...
Anyway, here are pics
K in his hat (he thinks he's smiling). I love the hats! I guess I should have put it on straighter, haha.

Co won't keep hats on right now, but he will when his noggin gets cold. Please excuse the messy shirt, we'd just gotten home from Red Robin and the kid DEVOURED the campfire sauce. Used the pacifier like a spoon.

K with the skull bag, he keeps Hot Wheels cars in it. And this is a bad picture of the shirt. I remember when we were talking, I mentioned stenciling and Norah said something like, "I wish I could stencil." Well, she did an EXCELLENT job, we love this shirt! He'd grown out of all his ribcage shirts.

I couldn't get a good picture of these pants either. Co was NUTS, running around and just screaming his head off for no reason. He stopped long enough to pick up a ball, and I took a picture. The fabric is black and yellow striped knit with skulls on it. I can't wait til it's not a billion degrees out so he can wear them!

And these awesome bandanna pants, too!

Thank you thank you, NorahKate!
And here's a teaser:

15  His name is Uggles in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: April 12, 2010 09:27:14 AM
...but they call him Ugly.

Poor little fellow.

He was supposed to be an owl.

But my 3yo chose the colors, I can't sew pieces together worth anything, I THOUGHT I bought eyes that would flatter him, but aforementioned 3yo must have thrown them out of the cart, and I can't follow a pattern without pictures on tiny pieces like the wings, so I "winged" them!

I posted him on facebook and got two comments: one said the flowers were pretty, the other asked if it was a hackey sack with wings.

17  Just a ball (w/bonus turtle) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: March 18, 2010 07:57:52 AM
I just started crocheting last Saturday & I made a turtle for my first project, which I gave to my 3yo. I wanted to practice a bit more, as well as make something my 1yo would appreciate. I used the Gabu pattern from Roxycraft to make him a ball (just left off the eyes and antennae), which I stuffed with dried pinto beans. I added some more decreases at the bottom instead of finishing off with 12 stitches and sewing closed. Those extra decreases made sort of big holes, so I don't leave him alone with it, but he loves to throw it and squish it.

on the bookshelf

Of course, the 3yo steals it.

Crocodile likes it too.

Oh yeah, here's my turtle, also posted in the turtle-along post

18  Valentine's Day is not just for the girls! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: February 15, 2010 03:34:52 PM
I have no little girls to craft for, so when I saw these non-girly handkerchiefs at Hobby Lobby, they HAD to be pants.

These pics are post-wearing because I finished up like five minutes after we needed to leave for church.

These things are insanely long.


Fleece waistband

Applique from scraps and "MINE" from my grandma's embroidery machine

I didn't stitch around it (yet) bc there wasn't time.

The end!

19  My first stamps in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by dooney on: February 09, 2010 04:31:27 PM
One of my New Year's goals was to learn how to carve stamps. These are my first ones, be kind!
This is for my brother, it's bacon if you can't tell. I'm going to give it to him with a bacon-scented stamp pad.

Lesson learned: don't draw my own designs.

Next is the heart:

Lessons learned: leave a little more room on the sides, don't carve too deeply next to thin lines.

Then my little boy:

It looks a lot better in person. There is actually detail in the eyes that gives it personality, but I couldn't get that to photograph.This one is about 2.5" x 3", which is bigger than the only stamp pad I own, so it was hard to get a good inking. Not to mention the stamp pad is from the dollar store and was half-dead when I got it.
Little darker, but before I cleaned up the lines and carved the straight edges away.

from this photo, modified in Paint.net and slightly freehanded where his forehead cuts off.

Lessons learned: carve deeper in big white spaces, buy a #1 blade, if you can't make edges perfectly straight then make 'em deliberately crooked.

Thanks for looking! Hope to get a lot more made very soon!
