11  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mah Darling Cephalopod (Squirt the Crocheted Octopus) on: August 20, 2008 11:07:48 AM
Okay, so I just finished my first attempt at an Amigurumi plush!  I taught myself how to crochet the day before yesterday, and then I decided that since I love octopi I would do a simple octopus first.  I finished him yesterday, so overall he took me about 2-3 hours to do, which is a long time for something as simple as this, but hey!  I had fun!  And I was watching movies and reading books while I made him, so I stopped periodically, lol.  Anyway, here are the photos, enjoy!

Here we are looking at six of his adorable little tentacles!  (I had not yet finished the other two)

And here is his cute little head/body just after I put on the eyes.  No mouth yet!

One of his tentacles:

The making of his tentacles:

One tentacle attached, seven to go!  And look, he's smiling!

All eight are on there!

And now a couple of action shots!

That's all!  I named him Squirt, because there are just too many octopi named Inky!  So then, Squirt and I shall now resume our bonding time whilst I plan his next friend:  Popeye the Piggy!
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Three Pairs of Glass Earrings on: August 17, 2008 02:39:55 AM
Okay, so I had a cup of coffee this evening around 11:00 p.m. and so now I can't get to sleep.  Bad choice, I know!  Anyway, I decided to put my insomnia to use creating earrings!  Here are three pairs of earrings using glass beads and copper and silver findings.  Enjoy!

The first, a collection of blues and purples with silver findings:

The second, being a more autumn-themed pair, but still with silver findings:

And finally, the third, being my favorite pair, and having copper findings with blue and green beads:

I hope that you all enjoy them!  Any comments are welcome!
