2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Monster Poof on: August 05, 2014 11:43:04 PM
I made this little fella for Cryssoleil in the monster swap a while back.  I just made him up, and I envisioned him as some little poofy creature that lives in hollow trees, and root clusters and such.  I've been wanting to make myself a little village of them because I think it's so cute. 





3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Freeform cross body bag on: August 05, 2014 03:59:24 PM
I made this cross body bag for Acadian Driftwood in the Enchanted Forest and Woodland Creature swap.  I wanted to find something to make where I could use some of my shaping skills from all the amigurumi making that I've done, but that would be a bit more useful.  It's mostly just scrumbling in different textured yarns and using different stitches.  I added some mushrooms and dangly plant bits to tie it into the theme (mushrooms was one of her themes.)  I busted out the sewing machine for the first time in over 10 years, and basically relearned the basics, VERY basic basics, in order to sew in a liner.  I toyed with the idea of adding a flap and button closure, or a zipper, but everything I was doing was so new to me that I decided not to freak myself out by over-complicating it.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I think it's pretty good for a first attempt.  Now, I want to make more!  Plus, I've been inspired to brave other projects where sewing is involved.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fall Dotee swap? on: July 15, 2014 09:21:50 PM
Anyone interested in a mid-Fall dotee swap?  I'm thinking they can be Fall themed, or just in the Fall and we list our own themes.  I have one lovely dotee from alwaysinmyroom and I need more!  I don't need to organize, but I'm willing to if you guys would like me to (Smmarrt?).

Here are some links to the last few rounds of dotee swaps.

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Min Pin amigurumi on: July 15, 2014 05:28:44 PM
I made this little Miniature Pinscher for kittykill in the OWS.  It was a bit fiddly getting all the details right, and I'm not sure if it looks too much like a chihuahua, but I'm pretty happy with how he came out.  I didn't use any pattern.  I find it very relaxing to just work without having to worry about reading a pattern or taking notes to write a pattern from. 







Thanks for looking!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Yoda doll on: July 14, 2014 10:21:22 PM
I made this little Yoda for Alliekat914 in the OWS.  No pattern, I just had fun with it.  I was originally going to give him more face detail, but he looked so cute that I was afraid of ruining him, so I left him alone. 







Thanks for looking!
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Kodama and an Amanita Mushroom on: July 14, 2014 11:29:57 AM
I made these for Acadian Driftwood in the WC&EF swap.  I love both Kodama and mushrooms, so when she listed them as some of her forest faves I couldn't resist.  The sitting Kodama, and the one with the stake coming out of it's foot are potted plant/garden decor.  The Kodama with the blue ribbon is an ornament.  She mentioned wanting an ornament for her car, so I thought she might like this.  I decided to make the mushroom a pendant.  I used colored clay for all of them, and then I glazed with sculpey glaze.  Super simple.  They all have fingerprints, dust, and other such imperfections.  Not sure if that sucks or just adds character.   Undecided









I couldn't resist making myself a Kodama for my planted terrarium




I wanted to make myself an amanita too, but I used the last of my white on this one.  I love sculpting even though I'm not very good at it.  I think I'll just embrace my primitive style rather than stress myself out over being good at it.  I'm happy with that.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Carnivorous plants swap? on: May 23, 2014 12:32:42 AM
So my husband gifted me a lovely little pitcher plant for my birthday, and I have developed a full-blown obsession with carnivorous plants.  Sundews, pitcher plants, venus fly traps; just imagine the possibilities!  T-shirts, painted sneakers, hoopla!, wall art, totes, bags, jewelry!  Anyone interested?

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Forest Witch Were-Owl on: May 05, 2014 03:47:18 PM
I know it's a mouth full, but that's what she is!  I made her for a swap (not on Craftster.)  She is a were-owl and can transform partially or completely into an owl.  Here she is in a quasi stage, with both human and owl characteristics.  Can you guess which?





There are more pics up on my blog if you want to see more.   Smiley

Thanks for looking!
