21  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I originally made the back leg and foot as one long piece that got thinner at the knee and ankle, but I couldn't really fold the legs up too well, even with wire in it.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!
22  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.

and a couple of non-kitty ones too   Smiley

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
24  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!

25  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!
26  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!







27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / December ATCs on: January 09, 2013 11:44:33 PM

28  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Halloween trio on: December 16, 2012 04:33:18 PM
First of all, I know that there is an amigurumi board, but I get bored always posting to the same board, plus I love this board so much that I really want to participate here as more than just an admirer.
Secondly, I'm posting these super late since Halloween was almost two months ago, sorry.



The mummy is only about 3.5 inches tall.  He turned out to be my favorite.  He is worked in backloops only, to create that ribbed look.  The owl is my second favorite.

here are some addtional pics


THanks for looking!
29  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / a menager-ami on: December 13, 2012 12:07:48 PM
I've been trying to catch my posting up with my crafting, so here are a few amis that I've made in the last year that never got their own thread.  Nothing too spectacular, which is why I waited to have a bunch to post, but nevertheless I like them and am proud of them.

this adorable mini pocket bug is only a few inches tall!

pattern link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lucille-the-pocket-bug

a pokeball.  My son was really into pokeman for a while.  Now my younger son uses it as an indoor ball.  He hasn't learned not to throw it at people when they aren't looking yet, so i'm glad it's soft!

pattern link: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/04/pokeball.html

this cute little turtle which i actually made a long time ago.  Love this pattern, but his head was a little heavy, so I would suggest weighting down his body with beans, beads or something so he doesn't faceplant.

pattern link: http://kristieskids.weebly.com/patterns1.html

this is actually a rattle that I made up, also for a swap.  I used one of those little plastic bubbles that you get from those crank vending machines with little toys in it & filled it with beads to make the rattle device!


this chili pepper (also for a swap).  I really enjoyed this pattern because it replicates the asymmetry of a real chile pepper.

pattern link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chili-peppers

I have a bunch more, but they are all fall/Halloween themed, so I think I will make a separate post for them. (Hopefully I actually get around to it!)

Well, thanks for looking! 

30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bookmarks on: December 13, 2012 09:31:21 AM
I was browsing through my pictures and found some items that I never got around to posting.  I want to try to catch up before the New Year, so I'm starting with these bookmarks.  I made these bookmarks for a swap earlier this year.   I really ended-up liking them and planned to make some for myself, but never got around to doing it.  (seems like I don't get around to a lot of things!)  Anyway, I seem to have a hard time revisiting projects.  I'm a love 'em and leave 'em type I guess, because I rarely work the same project/pattern twice.  Ah well, maybe one day I'll make a set for myself.
Smiley





here's the patterns I used if you'd like to make a set for yourself:
