I got a request to replicate a cupcake hat for a friend from a character's avatar in an online game. The hat in the game was very specific and had a lot of details, so I tried to incorporate all of them. I love the way the hat came out, but it was a little heavier than most of my hats since I had to stuff the 3D parts. Unfortunately I only got one good picture of it before I sent it out, but I still thought it was worth sharing!
I got the opportunity recently to create a super cute Yoda hat. There isn't really a whole lot to it, but it was really fun to make and even more fun to photograph. The ears are a little bit bigger than Yoda's actual ears, but I think that makes it just a little bit cuter. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Light Sage.
Here is another custom ami a friend of mine requested. It is a Minion from the movie Despicable Me. The face is all felt, mainly so I could get as many details as possible in there, like the glasses and the teeth on the mouth. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for the body. He is missing the logo and buttons on his overalls, but I didn't put the buttons on because he is going to belong to a three year old and I didn't really think that would be safe. The logo just seemed like it would be nearly impossible to replicate with felt or for sure with yarn. He was a lot of fun to make and I hope you guys enjoy looking at him as well!
A friend of mine requested I make this for his son recently and here are the results! It was very time consuming and had a lot more detail than I think any other ami I have attempted to make, but I really like how it turned out! The whole thing is made with Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and felt, and all of the pieces are sewn on there by hand, mainly because I am not a really big fan of fabric glue. I hope you guys like it!
Also, there are a lot of images because I wanted to try and get the car from every angle.
My friends and I have made it our annual tradition to get together and cook a huge meal and watch Thankskilling together. For those of you that aren't familiar, Thankilling is a horrible, but hilarious, horror movie about a killer turkey. This year, we also added a pumpkin off to our celebration, where each of us prepared a pumpkin dish to be judged. I wanted to create a prize for the contest, so out came this Thankskilling Turkey. I can't take full credit for the mask, my fiance made it, I just made the mustache. Turkey was a big hit at the party, and I hope you guys enjoy him too!
One of my good friends has a baby shower coming up this weekend, and keeping with tradition I decided to make her a baby blanket. She told me she was doing a nature theme with the nursery with pinks, browns, and greens and other more natural colors so I got inspired to make a nice flowery baby blanket for her. The blanket is of my own design for the most part. I used the lacy interrupted v stitch for the majority of the blanket. The edging is just sc and then I made up some cute little flowers to sew on. I couldn't figure out what else to get her to go with the blanket, so I also made up a cute little pair of booties. I got the pattern for the booties on ravelry. It is available here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crochet-wrap-around-button-baby-boots--girls-and-boys. They worked up very quickly and I love the way they turned out. There is also a version available without the ruffles for boys. I think the booties and blanket ended up looking great together! Let me know what you guys think!
I got a request to make a Winnie the Pooh hat and matching booties for a friend. They wanted to use this as a Halloween costume for their infant. The hat was pretty straight forward as I have made other similar hats but I wanted to try something new with the booties. I was thinking like old Reebok style with the velcro straps. I didn't actually put velcro on the straps, but now I wish that I did. Either way, I love how they turn out, and I may have to make a girl version one of these days for my little one on the way. Let me know what you guys think!
I love, love, love Halloween, so I got inspired to make all kinds of Halloween hats including this zombie one. I have seen so many crocheted zombie hats floating around the internet, so I thought I would try my hand at one. I can't wait to wear this around for the next month, I just hope it gets to be under 100 degrees soon .
Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year and I couldn't wait to try and make some super cute Halloween hats for my daughter and to feature on my site. I came up with a couple ideas that I thought would work out well and went with them. I love how all of them came out! I tried some beanies for a change. I normally make mostly earflap hats, but earflaps aren't really necessary since it is still a little warm out (at least here in Arizona). The ones on the very top are of the Purrrfectly Ghastly Kitty Cat Hat. My daughter is in love with kitties ever since we got her one about a month ago, so I had to make her one. Down below is my Here's Johhny aka Jack Torrance O' Lantern Beanie. I wanted the face to be a little scary but not too bad. I will probably make others that feature both more and less scary faces.
This last one is my Frankie's Lil' Monster Earflap Hat. I decided to make this one an earflap hat so the little spokes that needed to come out of the monster's neck would actually appear to be around the neck area, rather than the top of the head. That is all I have for now, but I am still coming up with ideas and making a few more things. Let me know what you guys think, enjoy!
My friend asked me to make her a neon green Oogie Boogie a really really long time ago and I finally got around to making it for her for her birthday. It was a little difficult to get the black stitching all around the sides, I ended up having to weave it through while I was still crocheting him, otherwise I might not have been able to do it. I really liked the way he came out. I didn't have a whole lot to compare him to, as there aren't a whole lot of good looking Oogie Boogie amis out there that I could find, but she ended up loving him and I love the way he came out too!
Also, if you are wondering how I got the top of his head shaped like that, I put a little bit of wire at the very top so I could bend it and it would keep its shape.
