1  Too Fat to Fly Elephant - UPDATE! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by novemberlies on: July 23, 2006 09:58:24 PM
I get to see my niece tomorrow, for the first time in a couple of months.  I miss the little rugrat so badly, so I made her this chubby little elephant with wings too small for his extra weight.




i am in love with him.  But what do you think?


Okay, so i made the fat elephant a fat girlfriend or sister, or whatever.  For the other niece.



and here is a butt shot.


and the wings...

fearless fibers... i love the input you gave to aphadon.  I had that fear coming into etsy, because I am probably one of the most random people in life, I did not want my shop to be purely random.

And like you said, coming off as a dabbler might not be a good thing.  Ive got these crochet maryjanes that I am getting a lot of good feedback on, I've had a few messages from people saying they will order a pair when they get more money.  (that can be as disheartening as it is exciting  Wink)

anyway, I think they are going to be my "specialty" item, if you will.  I am working on a pattern for another pair of crochet slippers similar to maryjanes, but very different, at this very moment.

here are my Blueberry Maryjanes



what do you think?

Bah, I'm so long-winded.  What I wanted to ask was... do you think it turns browsers/shoppers off that I sell both crochet and sewn goods?  Both my sewing machine and my crochet hooks get equal amounts of time, it would break my hear to abandon either one.  Would you recommend opening a separate shop?  One crochet, one sewn handbags/wallets?

I think I am delving too deeply into this, haha.

Okay... i am half finished.

I am away at school right now and my good fabrics are at home.   Cry  BUT!  I have the wonderful off-white silk with black polka dots and pin up girls all over it.  I have been saving it for just such a project.  I did not sew on hte handle or do the edging yet but here it what i've got:

i apologize for the crappy picture, it is actually black.  very black.  and it does not look nearly as bat-like as all the photos keep showing.

then i had a little fun and made a change purse.  Also not finished, but i pinned the pieces together to show the general idea.  I think I am going to use a big sparkly button with some little gemstones on this one.  go vintage.



what do ya think?

7  Crochet Hook/Knitting Needle Storage Solution! (Image Heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by novemberlies on: February 16, 2006 11:44:31 AM
I sat down over my 6 week Winter Break and thought, "Shannon, you have so many needles and hooks but no way to keep them all together."  I needed something small and easy to take places.  I never leave for a weekend without at least one skein and 3 hooks.

So i sat at my brand spankin new sewing machine with some betty boop fabric and POOF!






And then my Coici comes over.  All of my coici's craft, it is a sick obsession that is in our genes.  She hands me an envelope FILLED with those little squishy things for pencils, you remeber in second grade when your hand would cramp?

I say, "Coici Cheryl, what do I do with these?"

She says, "Oh young one, put them on your crochet hooks and experience the wonders."

VOILA!


NO MORE HAND CRAMPS!  I swear to some greater being this is the best idea ever.

happy crafting!

xox,
shannon

...are the best.  i needed to make something amazing for my boyfriend's mom for her birthday.  i had one day.  five hours later i completed this little diddy...



and a close up of the stitch....

i hate tassels, so i decided that for a border i would have some fun.  i played around a bit and made a cutsy little ruffle.  needless to say, she loves it.  blue is her favorite color.  i used hand-me-down yarn and 5 hours.  best ever.


this is my next creation (in progress):
