The judges will either die over it, or die because of it.

Nice job! (I think they will die OVER it.)
72  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Purple Hat with pom poms on: February 12, 2008 09:55:45 AM
While stuck inside during some of our sub-zero temps here in the midwest, I decided to make my sister a purple hat to match the mittens I made for her a few years ago.





You can tell in the photo that it's a different kind of yarn, but the colors are actually very close in real life.
I got the pattern from Stich N' Bitch , and substituted the pom pom on top instead of cat ears.

75  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Frankenbag!! (Made from plastic bags) on: January 15, 2008 06:35:44 PM
I saw some posts about people who crocheted a bag out of plastic bags and since I have collected about 1 million plastic bags I decided it would be the perfect use for them! Unfortunately, I have never crocheted anything in my life. This may not have been the best beginner project... because of the whole plastic bag thing. Plus, I didn't really know how to read the pattern that I found.

By the time I realized that I had been going about it the completely wrong way, I already had a giant crocheted square of white plastic. But I figured, what the heck, it was too late to start over, so I made the rest up as I went along. This took me about 6 months to finally complete - working on and off - and because it ended up being several chunks of color stitched together I dubbed it FRANKENBAG. Here he is!





Comments welcome!

Hi, thanks for your comments! I plan to try the felting after a while, but I was too impatient to wait until I got some real wool. I don't know how to crochet either - the patterns are from www.craftyalien.com.

So I've been wanting to make some of these animals ever since I saw a posting on craftster with them, and I finally got some patterns. So far I've churned out these little guys. I just think they're so cute! I didn't have wool, so I haven't attempted the felting thing, but I think they are still cute without it. The little pink llama I made for my friend and she was made with a smaller weight yarn and needles so she's much smaller than the other two.

I've really struggled with making anything more complicated than a scarf, so i was really pleased when I found out that these little guys aren't that hard to make.

First was Owly McHooterson


Next was Dolly Llama



And Finally, but not lastly Evil Possum



And all three friends together


Thanks for looking!

Thanks! Smiley

Here's a great website to learn how to make the rose ( I think it's the hardest one!)
http://www.bloom4ever.com/HowToFold.htm

I don't remember where I found the others, because I did a ton of searching, but this site is one of my favorites, and really easy to navigate:

I created these for my friends and family last Christmas. They're fun to make and perfect for those hard-to-shop for people. Obviously, mine were "wintery", what with the fake snow, but they could just as easily be customized for any season or occasion! I think they're pretty self-explanatory on how to make, but I included lots of pictures anyway  Cheesy
 - sorry they're not the greatest photos, but you get the idea.

You need wire, hot glue (I also used double stick tape), mini flower pots, paint, plant foam... and little origami flowers. I learned how to make these from some online diagrams - there are tons out there!

I hot glued the wire stem into the bottom of the flower and wrapped a second piece of wire around that.

The second piece of wire also serves the purpose of holding the green part on to the flower Smiley

Then I cut out some foam and wedged it in the bottom, stuck in the flowers and filled with fake snow.

Voila!
