bob-omb, I saw it on someone's Wists and had to try it.
my crocheted hackey sack, before it grew wings
My birdie! Oh how it makes me laugh, and oh how much it looks like a fly...
Failed attempt at an action shot...well...I had fun...

uh oh, you'd better get away, I think he's about to blow! I'd love any comments. I basically made both of these at school with no pattern. I can't read crochet patterns. They were tons of fun, and that birdie can truly be used as a hackey sack if you don't mind abusing stuffed animals. I'm a vegetarian and I'll do it, so I think most people shouldn't mind. Thanks for looking!
My best friend, for her 16th birthday, specifically asked for nothing for her birthday, so naturally I had to make her something silly. I was working on another project at the time which involved ice cream, so I came up with this idea. I was amazed and very happy at how realistic it turned out. All the yarn I used I dyed with Kool-aide, which just makes it more "special", quoting my mother. Still, I am very very happy with it.
For a christmas present this year, actually, two christmas presents, I made this piggy, and I absolutely adore him(as though you couldn't ell from my title )! So here he is:
And the best part of all is he was completely free! I got the pattern and all the cloth from my sewing teacher last year and this year, even though I'm not taking it this year. She's very nice to the poor sewing freak I just have one random question, though. How do you tell if something is pic heavy? I don't know what that means...would this be pic heavy? Thanks for looking!
So, my uncle, for christmas, asked for the movie Ice Age. My family does this thing where we are each assigned a person to get a gift for, and I got him. I have a very strong dislike of buying gifts, but I decided since he'd asked for it specifically I'd get the movie, but I was also going to make something for him. There's a little bit more to this story, though. The reason he wanted the movie was he liked the funny squirrel who is constantly chasing around an acorn through out the movie. So I made him a wall hanging with Scrat(the squirrel). I love it.
That's a picture of the entire wall hanging.
And here's a picture of Scrat close up.
This is a picture of the DVD cover, with the picture I made the hanging from. I love applique! My only problem is whether or not to put loops on the back to hang it up, and if so, how. My mom says I shouldn't, I should just let them deal with it as they please, but I'm not sure. I'd love it if I could have some advice. Thanks for looking and sorry for my incredibly long story!
