2  Four-piece Cake in CHALLENGE 18 ENTRIES by Petite_Tricoteuse on: May 06, 2007 08:10:00 AM
I love felt and I LOVE inanimate objects with faces on them, so this challenge was perfect for me.  The four wedges of the cake fit together to make one big cake.  The straberries and whipped cream are inspired by this tutorial:

I actually used a pattern of my own creation for this project.  Otherwise, my cake would have looked wonky  Wink

4  Assorted Amigurumis- pic heavy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Petite_Tricoteuse on: March 16, 2007 04:28:08 PM
I make so many of these little dolls that it is difficult to keep up with posting...Therefore, I've lumped them all together into one ami-filled post  Wink

The elephant is from roxycraft, the teacups, pudding, pear, and cupcake are from anapaulaoli.  The heart is a smaller version of one of anapaulaoli's patterns, as well...

5  Bushels of Apples, WITH PATTERN in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Petite_Tricoteuse on: March 16, 2007 04:22:09 PM
I made about a dozen of these tiny apples in just a few hours...They are great gifts, and look very sweet as a necklace  Wink  Make yourself a bushel, and let me know how they turn out! 






You will need:
red or green yarn for the apple
brown yarn for the stem
a green yarn for the leaf
size G crochet hook
stuffing
yarn needle

Abbreviations used:
ch=  chain
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
ss = slip stitch
inc = increase (do 2 single crochets in one stitch)
dec = decrease ( insert hook into first stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through the two loops on your hook)

APPLE:
Rnd 1:  Ch 2.  Sc 6 into the second st from the hook.
Rnd 2:  sc twice into each st (12 sts)
Rnd 3:  *sc one st, sc twice in next st, repeat from *  (18 sts)
Rnd 4-7:  sc around
Rnd 8:  *sc one st, sc2tog (dec), repeat from * (12 sts)
Rnd 9:  *sc2tog (dec), repeat from * (6 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing.  Weave the tail through the remaining stiches and pull tight. Pull the yarn through the center of the apple and secure at the bottom to make the dimple.  This will give it a nice, appley shape.

LEAF:
Rnd 1: Ch 2, sc twice into the second st from the hook, turn
Rnd 2: Sc twice into both sts (4 sts), turn
Rnd 3: Sc2tog across (2 sts), turn
Rnd 4: Sc2tog, cut a long tail, and pull the yarn through the remaining stitch

STEM:
Starting with a long tail, ch 8, then join the ends with a slip stitch. Cut a long tail, and pull it through the remaining stitch. This makes a nice little loop that can be threaded onto a cord as a charm.   

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the leaf onto the apple.  Position the stem, then pull both tails through to the bottom of the apple.  Pull tight, and tie a nice, strong knot.  Weave in the ends. 

There you go- it's that easy!!  Let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to help  Cheesy

6  Amigurumi Caterpillars, WITH PATTERN in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Petite_Tricoteuse on: March 16, 2007 03:05:51 PM
I made these little caterpillars for a swap with peachcake and quickly became addicted!  They are very easy and so, so cute  Wink  Scroll down for the pattern- please post pics if you make one!  I'd love to see them  Cheesy








You will need:

yarn for the body (I used Bernat Satin)
size G crochet hook
about 1 foot of fine craft wire for the antenae (you could also use pipe-cleaners)
a contrasting yarn for the antenae
a small amount of felt
embroidery floss and sewing needle
yarn needle
stuffing
puffy paint or embroidery floss for the face

Abbreviations used:
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
inc = increase (do 2 single crochets in one stitch)
dec = decrease ( insert hook into first stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through the two loops on your hook)

Body:

The body is made from three identical balls.  You could make it bigger by adding more balls.  It's up to you Wink  They are worked in spirals, meaning rounds are not joined.

Rnd 1:  Ch 2.  Sc 6 into the second st from the hook.
Rnd 2:  sc twice into each st (12 sts)
Rnd 3:  *sc one st, sc twice in next st, repeat from *  (18 sts)
Rnd 4-7:  sc around
Rnd 8:  *sc one st, sc2tog (dec), repeat from * (12 sts)
Rnd 9:  *sc2tog (dec), repeat from * (6 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing.  Weave the tail through the remaining stiches and pull tight.

Antenae: (make 2)
I braided three pieces of yarn together with a 6" strand of wire, then fastened off the ends by wrapping the wire around the yarn.  To make the top part, I cut out a rectangle of felt, folded it around the beginning of the braid, and sewed it in place.  Take the ends of the yarn and use them to sew the antenae to whichever ball you want to be the head. 

Assembly:
Use the tails to sew the balls together.  I sewed mine slightly off-center so that the caterpillar would be curved.  Its up to you how you want your caterpillar shaped.   You might want an extra-long,wiggly little buggy  Wink  Use puffy paint to work the face, or embroider it, if you'd prefer. 

Voil!  A lovable little bug!  Let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to help  Grin Grin

I just came home and found my box on the front steps!!  Yay!  Flanman sent me a grape-themed box.  It includes a pair of raison/grape kitting needles, grape kool-aid, grape sanitizer, and two stuffies.  Raisin O'Riley and Grapes McPherson are best friends who met through craftster  Wink  I don't usually like grape-flavored things, but I LOVE fresh purple grapes!  Grapes McPherson is so, so cute, and very nicely sewn  Smiley
