Prompt: Red Alert - Lucky Charms Team:Fandom Bonus Points: (include which bonus points you think you've earned, e.g., Giver, Engineering, UFO) Project Name: Wonky D20 Pillows are soft and squishy, like marshmallows! I made an attempt at a D20 pillow for my boyfriend and it turned out okay except that it's not as angular/sharp as it should be. I should have used a heavier yarn and/or reinforced each piece with plastic canvas to help it keep its shape. But at least he'll still have a fun pillow The picture doesn't show the color properly: it's Red Heart With Love in Peacock.

Prompt: Red Alert- National Hobby Month Team: Fandom Bonus Points: STASH ONLY Project Name: Got an eye on you Crochet is my favorite form of crafting, hands down (at least right now!) so of course I went with it as my hobby My friend made the comment that the toys Icroceted for his cats looked almost like eyeballs and asked if I could make an eyeball cat toy. So I crocheted a ball, using color changes to denote the pupil, iris and sclera then used red for the optic nerve. It's stuffed with fiberfill and catnip because he requested that I not make any more belled toys.
Prompt: February - Flash Mob Team:Fandom Project Name: Kitty toys So my friend has two cats and they keep destroying the toys he gives them. Actually ONE of them destroys the toys. And they've stolen his D20s, too, so I decided to help him out by making some cat toys. Each one only took about ten minutes to make and has a little bell inside. Hopefully this will satisfy them. At least for a little while
My friend's two cats have destroyed all the toys he has ever bought them AND stolen his D20s so I made these. They've got bells in them and should keep the kitties occupied for a little while at least. Expect more of these later because his one kitty is very destructive.
Prompt: Red Alert! - Love is in the Air Team:Fandom Project Name: Crochet rose bouquet STASH ONLY! I made these for a customer who is a regular at the store where I work. She wanted light pink, dark pink, peach, and yellow. I'm not a huge fan of the darker pink because it just doesn't look that great with the others. Or maybe that's just me? These are Valentine's Day gifts for her family. Nothing says "I love you" like rose.
This time instead of making the stems, I pulled the heads off some cheap fake flowers I got at the dollar store. I think they look pretty good I like them all but the darker pink. It throws off the pic! Lol
Prompt: January Battle Royale- WARM vs Cold Team:Fandom Project Name: Long stem red rose Project Link:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437898.0 I am NOT a fan of cold weather. AT ALL. I mean, yes, it's more sane to wear lots of black when it's cold out but I just love warmth/heat. (My dad says I'm part dragon.) Though I've got seasonal allergies, I love when the weather gets warm because my mom's rose bush goes into full bloom and it looks spectacular. Actually, the crazy thing blooms in the cold sometimes, too, but there are more roses on it in the warm weather. So, in the spirit of warmth, have a long stem red rose!
