21  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / A Nessie hatchling on: May 02, 2013 07:28:27 PM
I made this amigurumi for my partner in the One Tiny Monster Swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421152.0#axzz2SBvC5TD7) last month.  The crafted item had to be 3 dimensional, and no larger than 4 inches.  I had a hard time making it small enough to include the traditional long neck and still cute and baby-like, so I decided that sea/loch monsters are most likely hatched with short necks and then undergo a neck growth spurt in their early years. Wink  Anyway, on to pics.

Thanks for looking!

Anyone interested?  I know there have been a bunch of Tim Burton swaps, but they were all before I joined Craftster.  Here are some links to the last few swap galleries.

sorry, couldn't figure out how to make a proper hyperlink  Embarrassed

I can't believe I'm in my sixth month of ATC swapping!  The time has flown ridiculously!  Anyway, I'm still loving it!

These are the ATCs that I made for the ongoing swap.

(sorry for the blurry pic!)

Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoyed them.  Smiley
24  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bullfrog (with free pattern link) on: March 20, 2013 10:10:02 AM
Hey everyone!

I made this crochet bullfrog for my two-year-old as a gift for the Spring equinox.  I had received a knit frog in a swap, & he fell in love with it, but as he is destructive, and I treasure my handmade gifts, I didn't really let him play with it.  So I decided to crochet him his own friend.

I originally made the back leg and foot as one long piece that got thinner at the knee and ankle, but I couldn't really fold the legs up too well, even with wire in it.  So, I decided to make the leg in three pieces.  I'm so glad I did because it looks much better!  Sorry I don't have before picks, but here he is all finished up.

If you'd like to make your own bullfrog, I posted a free pattern on my blog!
25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Personal Swaps! on: March 03, 2013 11:16:18 PM
Okay, so I think I have full-blown ATC mania!  This is only getting more and more fun. These are some ATCs that I made for a couple of personal swaps in February.  I went a little cat crazy!  I'm not much of a cat person (mostly due to severe allergies,) but I found that I really enjoy drawing them.  The first one is my absolute fave, but I was pretty happy with most of these. 

(he's supposedly yawning, not hissing -- hopefully it reads mostly right)

and a couple of non-kitty ones too   Smiley

26  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Snoopy on: February 04, 2013 03:22:35 PM
I made this for the Winter OTT swap.  (Yes, I'm a little late posting  Embarrassed )
Anyway, I rarely follow a pattern to the T, but I did with this one.  Here's the link in case you wish to make your own beagle!
the only thing is that I made a crochet version of the scarf, because I don't know how to knit.

Hope you like him! Thanks for looking Smiley
27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / a couple of personal swaps & January's ATCs on: February 02, 2013 06:20:46 PM
I did these for a personal swap. 

This one is for a personal swap I'm doing with someone from a different site.  We both share a love of monstrous creatures & Nosferatu in specific!

It's all color pencil & ebony pencil.  I kinda wanted to add some black ink to it, but I'm afraid to screw it up because I don't have the steadiest hand.  What do you guys think?

This a set of two that fit together as one scene. 

They are supposed to be a vintage 20's Raccoon couple at the beach. 

I've been kind of all over the place with my technique and style.  I wonder if I'll ever "settle" into something.
Anyway, these are my ATCs for the January ongoing swap:

Well, that's it!  I had a lot of fun this month!
Thanks for looking!
28  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Gremlin on: January 31, 2013 10:26:14 AM
I made this guy for a swap in another group back in December.  My swap partner's favorite Christmas movie was Gremlins.  Lucky for me, I found this (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/stripe-the-gremlin) pattern, which helped a lot.  For some reason I couldn't quite follow the body section of the pattern, so I improvised that part trying to copy it as closely as possible, & I also added a nose.  I had a hard time giving him away because he turned out to be one of my favorite amis that I've made.

He didn't like the flash from my camera too much!!

I hope you like him!
29  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cthulhu a Lovecraftian nightmare on: January 22, 2013 05:41:45 PM
I awoke one ill-fated night from a troubled slumber in which I had the most disturbing dream.  I refer to it now as a dream only from a lack of a better word to describe what I experienced, for unlike any dream I had ever had before, this particular one filled me with an apprehension that I could not shake upon awakening.  If I did not know better, I would venture to say that what I experienced while in this so called dream, really and truly did happen to me and has left me forever scarred.  I dare not utter the contents of this "dream" lest I frighten you to histerics, I will however say that I have been left with a terrible foreboding that life as we know it is about to change forever.  That catastrophic events will soon be upon us!  Beware!  Beware for dark forces are at work to raise the sleeping Cthulhu!  I have recreated his terrible visage in yarn for all to view.  Prepare thyselves for his time is coming!
