2  scrappy purse of DOOM! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by dorareever on: July 08, 2008 01:14:20 AM
I have made this with all the different rests of yarn I had left. The longest were maybe one arm long-it's all different colors and textures.

I need to add a button or a zip to open and close it.

4  itsy bitsy spiders in Crochet: Completed Projects by dorareever on: April 14, 2008 03:51:16 PM
They're a bit crooked and live on a web that seems to have been made by a drunken spider Grin:

crochet spiders having hot sexxx!she's red and black and slightly bigger, he's smaller and black.  Tongue

and then for a quiet moment of post-coital affection and head-chomping (more than probable being spiders)

my partner (tazzel) informed me in her cute card that she got a bit "carried away", that is she sent an ungodly amount of octopus-related stuff  Shocked

here's a group pic of: one squid t-shirt, a knitted octopus, another knitted octopus (a bath glove, can't wait to use it! question: it supposed to be dead? with its cute crossed eyes?  Cheesy), the wonderful hand-drawn cards (they're all different  Grin), the necklace and a not-crafted but still awesome octopus toy (I guess it is a sponge, but I'm not sure  Embarrassed, it's cute though).

and there's more:

another t-shirt I'm wearing since I got it, and another picture of the two knitted octies.

6  adult booties for someone with asymmetrical feet in Stitch And BOTCH by dorareever on: February 08, 2008 12:31:08 AM
I've always had a deep envy of babies and their wool booties. so I thought I'd make an adult version for myself. I crocheted one, and it turned out okay. it took maybe 2 hours (cos I'm reaaaly slow). Then I waited to do the other, because I had something else to do, and...I never managed it to make it properly!
I swear I kept crocheting and un-crocheting. Like for a WEEK!!!  Shocked but no way I couldn't manage to make the left look like the right. This morning I finally got fed up and this is what I ended up with:

they look almost ok when you wear them:

but there lies their shameful secret:

they don't match at all!!  Embarrassed

nothing fancy, just thought I would share my first pair of gloves. they are fingerless because I can't do fingers.  Embarrassed

8  Zen Touch (iPod) Cozy in Crochet: Completed Projects by dorareever on: November 23, 2007 01:02:20 PM
Sorry the photos are blurry. It keeps my Zen warm though, I noticed that when it's too cold it gets stuck, so I thought about crafting this...thing. It's a bit on the botchy side, because of miscalculating the length of yarn and not wanting to start again, but it's warm and fuzzy for my Zen.  Smiley

Nothing fancy about that, just alternating singles and doubles. The note is glued on because I got tired by the end  Embarrassed . Then I passed the remaining yarn thru the cozy so it can be opened and closed at will.

Don't ask me about patterns, I barely know myself LOL.

9  Re: Pets or weird people doing weird things to your craft.... in Stitch And BOTCH by dorareever on: August 21, 2007 02:33:10 AM
I'm the weird person doing weird things to my craft actually.  Tongue

See "mutant pincushion" for details.

But the kitties can contribute sometimes. They mostly play with yarn which is  nice, and one of them tries to completely mimic a big black ball of wool.

Evidence of kitty n1 method acting:

kitty n 2 used to be *afraid* of yarn.  Huh Then he learned.

10  rennie sparks from the handsome family in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by dorareever on: August 17, 2007 07:58:02 AM

it's actually better than it looks in the picture.  Smiley

I took bad pictures of a small part of the process:

yes, this looks like a deformed crochet turkey. But it's her trunk. Gladly it's hidden by the dress. She doesn't really have legs.  Grin Her head is made with a white cloth stuffed with  cotton and just sewn on the ugly turkey. Her hands are again stuffed cloth glued (not sewn) to her arms. I used nailpolish to simulate...nailpolish.  ;)I mean fingers because me=not able to make any kind of finger.

the face is simply, plastic (the rigid wrapper for the glue actually) and black marker for the glasses, naipolish for her lips. Hair is done by twisting, knotting, cutting and glueing black wool on her head. I used these pics of hers as a model. For hair and face:


for the dress:
The dress is made simply sewing a piece of dad's old pants together(a real gold mine for crafting!) and then sewing a piece of my grandma's nightgown to it. You can't really undress her or she'll fall apart.  Grin Beside the whole "freaky turkey" chest I mean.

She used to have her tiny cardboard autoharp, my mother made it with cardboard and using thread to simulate strings  but I lost it. She also had a violet pet crochet octopus but the cats destroyed it.  Smiley

And yeah my doll  has no legs and her arms look phocomelic. But I swear that it looks better in real life.  Grin

I started making Brett as well, made his head and less-turkeyfied chest and black coat and that's it. And it's since January...I should really complete him because I wanted to send the band my dolls. I'm lazy.  Embarrassed
