1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Mini Top Hats Pattern on: April 23, 2014 06:04:04 PM

Whenever I think of top hats I think of whimsical, fun, and quirky characters, they just look so fun! I decided to make a few of my own. The tall version (called Black Cherry) was inspired by a red and black dress I have. The strawberry short cake version is a little shorter. Either or, the size is perfect for anyone of any age to wear Smiley

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Built-in Bow (pattern) and other hats on: January 24, 2014 04:46:22 PM


I have a new found love of crochet hats! I'm starting to realize how easy it is to complete an outfit with a cute hat. Plus with this winter being so frigid, I feel I need a warm hat even indoors. The Built-in Bow hat was inspired by pictures I've seen online, and since I couldn't find a pattern for it (well, not an ADULT pattern, most pictures were of little girls wearing this hat...) I decided to whip up a pattern myself.

Materials: 5.00 mm Hook, Yarn needle, optional decorations, and any kind of size 4 yarn
St Stitch
Dc Double Crochet
Ch Chain

Rnd 1: Dc 11 into a Magic Ring
Rnd 2: 2dc into each st (22)
Rnd 3: Dc, 2dc in next st (34)
Rnd 4: Dc 2, 2dc in next st (45)
Rnd 5: Dc 3, 2dc in next st (56)
Rnd 6: Dc 4, 2dc in next st (67)
Rnd 7-11: Dc 67
Rnd 12: Dc 12, Ch 12 (or desired length), Dc until end.
Rnd 13-16: Repeat Rnd 12

Finishing: From the middle stitch, sew together to create the built in bow. If wanted, add some bling-bling~


I've also made a couple of other hats from great free patterns online:


Their patterns can be found at my bloghttp://millieonherworld.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/built-in-bow-hat/

Smiley Enjoy!
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Another one down, Sailor Jupiter! on: January 24, 2014 04:20:18 PM

I have to say, after Sailor Moon my favorite Sailor Scout is Sailor Jupiter! She was the tough one who took no nonsense and (in my opinion) had the best powers!



I used the same pattern for her as I did for Sailor Moon...which means she took a lot of work -_- But I really loved that I had a chance to make her second. Smiley I'm still trying to figure out how to make Tuxedo Mask. Eventually he should pop up here somewhere!


Yup yup. Thanks for checking her out Cheesy
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Disney Chibis: Mickey, Minnie, Pooh, Piglet, Tinkerbell, Periwinkle on: July 07, 2013 08:23:14 AM
Gotten on a fan art kick lately. Decided to make a few chibi Disney characters while trying to stray away from the typical Princesses. Here are the beginning characters:

Mickey & Minnie Mouse

I always liked their old fashioned simplistic look best. Had to use felt eyes because black safety eyes on black yarn made them look eyeless and honestly kind of creepy. Tongue

Pooh Bear & Piglet

My favorite bear who's always hunting for honey. And of course his companion Piglet who's neurotic behavior I always found hilarious as a kid.

Tinkerbell & Periwinkle

Honestly I don't know much about Periwinkle other than she's Tinkerbell's sister. I felt like I had to make her with Tinkerbell, besides their contrasting colors and styles were interestingly difficult to make.

That's all I have for now, trying to brainstorm more characters to do. Smiley If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them!  Grin
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Champion of Love and Justice: Sailor Moon on: July 01, 2013 09:24:48 AM


Sailor Moon was the first anime me and my best friend fell in love with when we were kids. Last year I made her a 5 inch doll using someone else's pattern. This year I decided to create my own pattern and make the perfect Sailor Moon amigurumi. And I think I nailed it!



Her body was entirely made using a 2.70 mm hook, the smallest I've ever used. She is a little over a foot tall. This was also the first time I made a doll with hips and a bust lol. I REALLY wanted as many details as possible. Sailor Moon took about 4 days of continuous work, and in the end my fingers were super sore, but the look on my friend's face was priceless when she first saw her doll.

 

I've already started working on Sailor Moon's cute daughter Chibi Moon. Will share once she's done! I'm also making a mini Sailor Jupiter for a Craft Swap. So much Sailor Moon madness, I love it. ;3

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Pattern Preferances on: June 18, 2013 04:42:43 PM
Hi, I've been thinking about selling patterns online. I was wondering if I can sell patterns without pictures, like the only picture is of what the final product would look like. Or do I have to have step by step pics. Would people prefer picture heavy patterns? I'd like to hear your personal preferences please Smiley
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Cupcake Dress on: June 17, 2013 04:10:09 PM


Sweet treat that now I can wear!
I made this cupcake dress for my love of the colorful and tasty dessert, and as a personal challenge. This is the largest item I've ever crocheted, and it took me a week to complete. It was made completely from scratch, no pattern used for any part.



The cherry/whipped cream is only tied to the strap since I couldn't decide if I liked it permenatly attached or not. The sprinkles were made from pink glass beads that were sewn on. Also there is a pink ribbon weaved between stitches under the bust.



Fits like a glove!

Thanks for looking Smiley

Rnd 8-13. The next few rounds are kind of freehand, but you need to 2tog four times for the next six rounds.

Next we will be adding the wire.

1. Cut the wire about 10 inches, and a piece of yarn the same color about 8 inches
2. Push the wire through the arm that will be holding the balloon. Make sure it goes all the way through
3. Insert the other end of the wire through the heart, pushing through the top of the heart and leaving about a centimeter or two
4. Wrap the exposed wire in yarn, leaving two loose ends
5. With scissors, jewelry tools, or by hand, fold the wire into the heart securely
6. With a yarn needle, sew and tie the loose yarn ends into the heart
7. Stuff the heart lightly, make sure the wire can hold it
8. 2tog the bottom of the heart around the wire. Then leave a tail and sew around the wire until very tightly around it
9. Take a long piece (about arms length) of the White Worsted Weight Size 3 yarn. Tie it to the wire, right under the heart balloon. Tightly wrap the yarn to cover the wire.
10. When reaching the animal arm, sew the yarn end through the animal arm, then continue wrapping the wire to the end. Dont cut the yarn
11. Loop the wire around the animals arm then fold the wire into the arm securely. With the excess yarn, sew around the wire to help it maintain its place. Weave end into arm and cut.
12. Youre all done!




I hope you enjoy and make someone's day brighter :)
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Joined abd Spiral Rounds Help on: May 20, 2013 06:47:02 AM
I want to share a pattern of an amigurumi bunny I've made. When creating the original pattern I used joined rounds. I was wondering if the same pattern could be used if someone did spirals? Or do i have to make a whole seperate pattern?

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gameboy Color Pouch on: May 13, 2013 02:02:54 PM
When I was growing up I was completely in love with my purple Gameboy Color! I still feel like at that time gaming was at its best, but perhaps I'm just feeling like all the other obnoxious "90's Kids" of my generation.  Grin
I couldn't help paying tribute to my beloved Gameboy Color, so I crocheted a little pouch!


Ironically it can't hold a Gameboy Color, but it fits a Nintendo DS lite like a glove


I had a little trouble sewing the fabric, and admit it looks a little sloppy. I hope to make another one that is a bit neater and possibly a little larger.


In the meantime, it works great! :3
