1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cersei amigurami on: October 06, 2011 07:39:18 PM
Hello!  I made this amigurami using this pattern:http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/2011/06/base-amigurumi-pattern.html and made up the skirt part of the dress.

Sorry for the dark pics, for some reason my camera has been a real pain lately. 

Thanks for looking!  I made her for a personal swap, and the return goodies are in the [url]http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369383.0/url]. 
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Out with the red, in with the Gold! on: June 20, 2011 11:48:03 AM
After finishing the girls room http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=380576.0 we decided to attack the dining room.  I loved the red when we first moved in, but after we received new furniture from my in-laws, it felt like a cave.  Especially when there were people in it, which happens more often now.  It definitely needed to be lighter, a new arrangement on the furniture and a new floor!  On to the pics:

The right side of the dining room (Before Shot):


After shots!

Central view:


View from the foyer:


The entrance from the foyer:


The finches in their niche.  We left it brown, because it is not part of the main dining area.  it's a little nook that has the second entrance to the walk in pantry and the master bedroom door is visible on the right.  The big white block is the swinging kitchen door.  It's nice to be able to shut off the kitchen and still be able to run in and out with out having to bother with handles Cheesy 


I don't have a pic of the left wall because it is unfinished.  I haven't decided what to hang there yet.  Thanks for looking, comments and suggestions are welcome!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Fantasy Room Mural *pic heavy* on: May 16, 2011 12:12:05 PM
This room is being made ready for a 6 year old girl who loves fantasy.  So far we have the mural up.  Later there will be furnishings (made or redone by us) but those pics will be later.  On to the fun! *I forgot the first time around to mention it was myself and 4 other adults working on this for about 12 hours straight.  Everything was freehand, although some of it heavily influenced by art that we've seen.

The bedroom door, which is the beginning of the path to the castle:


The wall with the castle which shows a hint of the stone wall we painted all around:


Don Quixote and his Windmill:


Every little girl dreams of unicorns:


The pegasus is on the same wall as the unicorn, just separated by a closet door, which we aren't finished with yet.  He's next to the entry door.


The dragon, which is on the same wall as Don Quixote.  We thought it would be funny to have the dragon watch the poor knight attack the windmill.


That was three of the walls, there is one more, but it currently has stuff stacked up in front of it while we are finishing the closet door.  I will have more pics of the room complete once the flooring and furnishings are finished and in place.  The bright flowers, butterflies, mushrooms and fairies are foam stickers we let her decorate with.  Thanks for looking!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first Granny Square Blanket! on: December 17, 2009 07:49:25 AM
I have finally finished my blanket.  And just in time to have it given away as a door prize!  It's the "Circles to Squares Afghan" from www.lionbrandyarn.com   I would give the exact page, but you have to be signed in to view it.  I used Vanna's Choice Yarn and picked my own colors.  The pattern was easy to follow, I just wish I had weaved in the ends on each square as I finished!  I also added two extra border widths, because I wanted the outer-to-inner look to finish it off.  Okay, enough talky, and on to the one picture!



Sorry for the curled corners, it didn't want to lay straight!


5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first USABLE purse on: April 30, 2009 07:33:29 PM
I made this purse following the directions for the "Pleated Beauty Handbag" from bend-the-rules Sewing by Amy Karol.  I, of course, managed to pick the most complicated project  Shocked  Somehow I bungled my way thru (with no pinning till the very end!) and came out with this:



Close up of quilted applique fruit:


Interior of bag with my junk in it:


Back side of bag:


This bag is HUGE.  I can carry two large hard back novels in it.  Which is perfect for me.

I changed a few things from the directions:  I added two pockets, instead of one.  I also made my straps differently.  They are longer, wider and are a solid color.  I basically made my own heavy bias tape to make the handles.  I plan on making more in the future!  Great practice with pleating, and I think the next one I will attempt the scary thing:  A zipper!

I do recommend this book.  It has nice clear directions and a lot of wonderful how-to's and sewing techniques explained.

Critique and questions welcomed.
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Gir-Agon on: March 21, 2009 11:25:33 AM
Once again at work twiddling my thumbs.  Then I decided that if I had an octopus that my DH needed something for his office at home!  So the Gir-agon was born.  He started off as a cat.  But then the lovely tear drop shape screamed sitting dragon.  So I completed him.  Then I showed him to a friend, who squealed "Gir-Agon!" because he looks like a giraffe/dragon mix.  Poor guy must be confused Sad 

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Little Bitty Octopus on: March 21, 2009 11:16:35 AM
I was sitting at work one day, twiddling my thumbs and staring at my yarn scrap stash.  And then decided I needed something to guard my monitor.  So he was born!



He is made from a tan scratchy acrylic yarn my cousin gave me from her stash (no labels of course) and his eyes are embroidered own from a dark blue Simply Caron.  I love him and his super stretchy legs Cheesy

Thanks for looking!
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Boomkin! (Pic Heavy) on: August 12, 2008 03:33:08 AM
My father and I live in separate states, so we play World of Warcraft to keep in touch.  He had seen a teddy bear that I made for my step-sister's baby shower, and decided that I would be able to make a "Boomkin" for him.  (It's what the druids can turn into).  Now there are no patterns for them, so I had to wing it.  I think it came out great!  Please give comments critique.  Thanks for looking.

Basic shape:

I know, looks like a giant turd.

Adding the stomach:


Legs and arms!:

Not so turd like anymore.

Feathering the arms:

As you can see, the poor thing has switched locations a few times...

Ruff and face:


Side shot:


Close up of hand sewn felt antlers:

Those took a while.  I think if I make another, I will try something different.

Butt Shot!:


The happy recipient:


The rules that were imposed by the father was it had to be washable, large, and had to be baby safe so his grandchildren and future grandchildren can play with it. 
I used Lion Brand Thick and Chunky wool blend yarn, standard felt, and hypoallergenic washable polyfill. 

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Red Dragon on: May 15, 2008 02:00:24 PM
I thank Angry Angel for her tutorial found here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=175190.0

It gave me courage to finally break free from scarves!  And taught me a lot about crocheting.  Finally I understand what place markers are good for!  And why counting stitches is a good thing. 

On to dragon goodness:





I used 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft No Dye Lot Red # 9729.  I just loved the idea of making a fire engine red dragon  Grin, and an "E" hook.

Any comments are welcome.  I do realize I made some mistakes, I learned how to decrease properly doing this.  I used to think you just skip one and draw them up tight...now I know better.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My new scarf! on: October 31, 2007 08:16:47 AM
Hello.  This is my new scarf:

http://hoboe.vox.com/library/photo/6a00cdf7e675cf094f00e398b8a3e90003.html

http://hoboe.vox.com/library/photo/6a00cdf7e675cf094f00e398b8a3e80003.html

The first one is of my lovely office chair modeling the scarf for you.  He does a marvelous job.  The second is a close up, to share the glory of a probably misnamed stitch.

I made it with Red Heart Brand yarn, neutral, no dye lot.  I think the stitch is called a double.  No pattern, just kept going till I thought I was done.  Thanks for looking!
