1  Yes. It's another octopus...Sort of. in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: September 30, 2007 09:37:41 AM
Meet RoboOpus. He was made one stormy night when I needed a new vacuum cleaner. He doesn't vacuum, though.




Made with red heart yarn, some cardboard for "structural integrity," buttons, and felt. And I think he needs more pizazz. Not sure what though.

2  Deric's Harry Potter Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: September 30, 2007 09:29:59 AM
I made this scarf for my boyfriend. He likes it. I hate it. And now I have an even stronger dislike for all things Harry Potter.

He wouldn't let me take a picture of him modeling it, so...



Davey was happy to oblige. I think it's the right colors for Hufflepump or whatever it is. Here's how to do it:

1. Buy some luxurious Red Heart Yarn
2. Get an H hook.
3. Chain 30.
4. HDC for 19 rows
5. Switch colors
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for an eternity.

I now am off the hook for making anything for him for at least six months Wink

3  They can't ALL be winners... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: September 12, 2007 06:59:51 PM


You've seen her everywhere...In the street...In the frozen foods aisle. She's terrifying, and you never know where she might show up.



The silent cheerer. That's right. The random girl that performs cheers silently to herself anywhere she might be seen. No one knows if she's actually a cheerleader. She could be 14 or 37...No one knows! All that is known about her is that she will clap her hands and nod her head like the entire world depends upon it...Well, in abbreviated movements. You can't exert all your energy in the Wal-Mart parking lot when the big game's just around the corner, silly..


Okay, not my finest work. I know. I actually don't even think I'll be able to sleep at night with this in my house. It's okay. You can laugh. I am.

Another octopus for the revolution! Getting sick of 'em yet?

Thank you so much for the pattern. Until I found this little bugger, I was using a fabric I tried sewing into a cube. I'll be honest. I am not a seamstress. It was hideous.

Here's mine:




Thanks!

5  Mamma Mia! Newest Opus! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: September 09, 2007 02:05:49 PM


This pretentious little waiter likes scoffing, smirking and rolling his eyes at people that can't pronounce things on his menu.

He's the latest member of the Octopus Revolution. Join up. It's mondo fun.



Here he's serving up delicious to Frankenopus.

Oh, and chef opus' hat was a real jerk. I have callouses!

This is Ultros from Final Fantasy VI. It's a request from a friend that I finally actually sat down and made.



He is very mischievous and right after this picture was taken, kicked my puppy in the shin. I'm glad he's out of my house.

7  Frankenopus is puttin' on the ritz. in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: August 16, 2007 05:07:00 PM
It's Alive! It's Alive!

I would like to present to you Mr. Frankenopus.



I made him from a variation of a pattern available here:

http://flickr.com/groups/octopusrevolution/

It sure would be awesome to see all sorts of octopus occupations there. Hint, hint. Wink


I fixed the link so it should go to the right place. I thought I checked it..Guess not. Join up, make some octopi, it's pretty awesome.


***This pattern is free for you to do with what you will, but please don't sell it or sell things that are direct copies of what have been posted here..Copy away, that why they're here, but c'mon! I'm broke! If anybody's bank account should be growing, it should be mine. It's pathetic.***

8  A question and something adorable... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: July 26, 2007 07:47:46 AM
Okay, so if you go here: http://www.amigurumikingdom.com/
see the cutest thing ever. (down just a bit from the menu)

I loved it so much I thought I'd give it a go. I'm pretty happy with everything except my P.O.S. camera.



So, how horribly unethical is it to blatantly rip off what someone else sells? If:

a.) It's for my own personal adorable daily intake.
b.) I have no intention of selling the end result
c.) I have no intention of distributing the pattern in any way

Just wondered.

9  What do you call a six-legged octopus? ~PATTERN~ in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: July 01, 2007 08:36:30 PM
I don't know either, I was asking.

This is Opus vol. 4.



He has no name or personality yet because he's a present for my brother's new girlfriend. She liked his seven-legged model so much she wanted one of her own.


I made him at work, and now he's hanging out with my yarn pile.

I actually wrote down the pattern this time as I went. If there's enough general interest, I'll piece all of my little scrap pieces of paper together and post it up.

Pattern Town!

materials
Some yarn scraps (acrylic works best)
Crochet Hook (I used a 3.5mm one)
Fiberfill
safety eyes

how to do it
Body
start with a magic loop ring.
Row 1: 6 sc into magic loop (pull tight) (6sc)
Row 2: 2 sc into each sc around (12 sc)
Row 3: 1 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (18 sc)
Row 4: 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (24 sc)
Row 5: 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (30 sc)
Row 6: 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (36 sc)
Row 7: 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (42 sc)
Row 8- Row 12: 1 sc in each sc around (42 sc)
Row 13: 5 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (36 sc)
Row 14: 1 sc in each sc around (36 sc)
Row 15: 4 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (30 sc)
start filling and put in eyes here
Row 16: 3 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (24 sc)
Row 17: 2 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (18 sc)
Row 18: 1 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (12 sc)
Row 19: 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (6 sc)

stuff stuff stuff! finish off.

Legs
Make 8. Only place them up a bit higher than I did if you actually want to get 8 on the little guy.

Start with magic loop ring
Row 1: 6 sc in magic loop, pull tight
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc repeat around (12 sc)
Row 3: 1 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Row 4: 3 sc, 1 sc in 2 sc*, 3 sc, 1 sc in 2 sc* (8 total)

finish off the legs and then sew them on the body at your place of choice.

By not finishing off the row (only 8 scs) , it makes them slanted and they're easier to attach.

*denotes a decrease. That means do 1 sc split over the next 2 sc.


That's it. It's mondo easy and uber basic. This is not at all how I write out patterns when I make them up, so if it doesn't make sense, let me know.

If you make one, please post it so I can see it. I love them. I also very geekily created a flickr group for them. Make one and join the ranks!  http://flickr.com/groups/octopusrevolution/

10  Bees! They're mad and they're STING CRAZY! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by missmelissa138 on: July 01, 2007 05:12:39 PM
Okay. So these jerks have been buzzing all over me this weekend.



They have figured out that I'm scared of bees, so they charge me when I'm eating. I have dropped more sandwiches that way...



Here they are setting up camp in my gloriosa lily.


Aww. They make me smile.
