One of my 7 year olds loves zombies.  She is pretty much a fan of all things undead and she likes bunnies.  I decided to combine the two and call it a day Cheesy

Our little guy just turned 1.  The older kids have given him the nickname of Monkey so I knew I had to crochet one for his birthday  Here is what I came up with.  We will see if he likes it when we have his party this weekend Cheesy

23  Elephant in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by shmac on: February 02, 2011 10:41:21 PM

I made this little guy for my little guy Smiley  When I was done, my older son requested I make him one too.  Of course he wants it blue, with a tail and buttons for eyes.  At least he knows what he wants Grin

24  Phinneas Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by shmac on: January 29, 2011 09:22:27 PM

It is not as cold here in Arizona as it is in other parts of the country but I still love to make hats for my youngest son.  He is bald so, as long as I put him in a short sleeve shirt, I can justify making him wear all of these wintery hats Smiley

25  Chicken Hat for my baby boy in Crochet: Completed Projects by shmac on: June 27, 2010 02:39:58 PM
My older kids are 8 and 6 and won't let me make them silly things.  Unfortunately for Phinneas, he can't say he doesn't like them so he will have tons of pictures wearing things like this:



Poor guy.

26  Princess Peach Finger Puppet in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by shmac on: December 26, 2008 04:34:02 PM
Because I am raising gamers and comic book geeks,  I made my 5 year old son Mario and Luigi finger puppets (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267900.0) for his birthday.  For Christmas, I promised to make him Princess Peach and Bowser finger puppets.  I made them both but Bowser did not turn out so I am only showing Princess Peach.
Peach's hair took forever because she has a strange combination of 70's hair and mullet.  It was sort of hard to pull off with crochet thread.

27  Super Mario Bros. Finger Puppets (*Now with basic pattern*) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by shmac on: September 08, 2008 05:50:24 PM
I made my twins each a set of finger puppets for their birthday a few days ago.  My 5 year old son loves all things Mario so his puppets are Mario and Luigi.  I somehow ran out of time to make more so I will be adding Princess Peach and Bowser for Christmas.  In the meantime, here are Mario and Luigi.

28  Justice League finger puppets (pic heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by shmac on: July 06, 2008 07:31:39 PM
My 4 year old daughter is a future comic book geek.  Grin  She loves to watch the Justice League on Boomerang and begs us to buy her comics whenever she sees them.  With that in mind, I made her a set of finger puppets which I will giver her for her birthday this year.  They are her 5 favorite characters from JLA:  Hawk Girl, Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, and Wonder Woman.  I also wanted to say that I used the amazing hair tutorial by *Owly* (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=192140.0).



Hawk Girl


Batman


Green Lantern


Superman


Wonder Woman

I still have to decide how I am going to add Superman's S to his shirt.  My embroidery skills are pretty lacking and I haven't figured out how to make the S yet. 

Thanks for looking!

The biggest challenge was coming up with a clown that didn't completely freak me out.

30  Experimental Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by shmac on: August 31, 2007 09:14:06 AM
This is my version of the Experimental Sweater from Hookorama by Rachael Matthews.  I modified it to fit my almost 4 year old son and I did not include the "burn holes" in the back.  I think having holes in the back would drive my son crazy. 



This is for Eamon's birthday.  I will try to get a picture of him wearing it after I give it to him at his party tomorrow.
