1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Wonder Woman! Diana of Themyscira on: June 10, 2013 07:46:02 PM

So. I went to A-kon this year and got the idea to create Wonder Woman! So, I made her and here she is! Her wrist cuffs and stars on her shorts were made with fabric paint and she has a lasso that is connected to her waist. Enjoy!

You can see more pictures on my public facebook! (www.facebook.com/athenasmuse)
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Loki Universe! "I Do What I Want" on: December 07, 2012 11:03:54 PM

Kneel mere mortals at this awesome crochet Loki. I made this for a White Elephant gift swap with some friends. I haven't gone to it yet but I know that whoever ends up with it will love it to death. I made some modifications from this [http://overthebifrost.tumblr.com/lokipattern] pattern, which turned out awesome. Below are some more awesome photos of him!

And along with crochet Mini-Loki comes a glass etching of a Loki silhouette!

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Moth Wings Shrug on: August 05, 2011 07:27:43 PM
I made this for one of my swap partners in the Make-a-Friend Swap.
It is the Moth Wings Shrug by Mimi Alelis from the Summer 2010 Edition of Interweave Crochet.
I used a shiny looking pretty green thread I got from Hobby Lobby. The color in the picture is pretty close and the last photo you can see some of the shiny-ness of the thread. I think I used a size 5 because I couldn't find my other hooks.

Here it is:
The Front (don't mind the pins)

The back: here you can see some of the lopsided motifs, they were an accident.

And the sleeve. You can also see a close up of the motif and the shiny thread.

Thanks for looking! I hope to make one for myself soon! ^_^
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Princess Leia Task Chair on: July 10, 2011 09:25:33 PM
So I decided to try my hand at redoing a green task chair that I have had for a long time. It was for my crafts and for my computer desk and it was the most uncomfortable thing but I never wanted to get rid of it because that would mean I would have to buy another chair.... So for the longest time I wanted to put extra padding and better fabric... So tonight... I did it!
I had some pretty awesome Princess Leia fabric I got a long time ago... Not too fond of the pink but it was still pretty awesome. SO here it is!

This is somewhat what it looked like... I didn't take a before pic... the green was dingy from years of use.

The padding is kinda lumpy for being my first time... but it is thick and comfy now!!!

The underside doesn't look that great but ehhh... I don't care it still looks awesome.

ANNNNDDD here is the pretty fabric!

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Zombie Apocalypse on: June 08, 2011 02:53:48 PM
I have wanted to try using the Freezer Paper forever. So I figured out that I might as well try when my boyfriend's younger brother was graduating from High School. So I picked an image about zombies because my boyfriend was making him a Zombie Survival Kit, so I thought a zombie shirt would go well with it.

As a first time, it has some flaws and was a pain in the butt because of all the tiny pieces that were part of the design. But in the end it was well liked by my family and the boyfriend's family. So here it is!!!

Let me know what you think! I'm very proud of it. And it was pretty awesome for a first time.

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Professor Severus Snape on: June 02, 2011 11:29:25 PM
A friend of mine wanted a Snape stuffie and so I worked hard and make changes to a few patterns to introduce
Professor Severus Snape!

Let me know what you think. I spent long hours on him and the recipient is very happy with him.
He is made with crochet and filled with fiberfill and his outer robe is fabric that I cut and hemmed and made it work Smiley

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Frog Prince on: April 06, 2011 09:56:58 PM
I made this for a friend. I found the pattern on Ravelry and my friends favorite animal was a frog. Smiley

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hello Kitty Winter Hat on: March 16, 2011 05:56:38 PM
So I made this for a Hello Kitty Swap but I loved it and hope to make another one. I got the inspiration from DesignVigilante who is a good friend of mine and she made a similar hat for a Craft Challenge. She used Tunisian Crochet to make hers but since I haven't done much with Tunisian Crochet I decided to just use regular crochet.
The cable around the brim is crochet cables and it was the first time I had ever done them, I made a strand long enough to fit the biggest part of the skull then formed the had around it. I gave it a scalloped brim to give more feminine look. The cat ears  are using double crochet and the bow is actually a barrette that I made and is interchangeable.

And here are the barrettes by themselves.

Thanks for looking.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Extra Long Scarf! on: December 31, 2010 11:47:35 PM
So it's been awhile since I posted something on the Crochet Boards but this is a scarf I just finished early yesterday morning and it's a gift for a friend of mine.  The yarn is called Schulana Sojabama and it's 55% Bamboo and 45% Soy.
Really soft and easy to work with.

The scarf is 85 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide with 9 inch fringe on each end. I worked it longwise so it only has like 19 rows.

Here is the fringe close up!

Here is a close up of the stitches.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Scarborough Fair Dress **IMG HEAVY** on: May 30, 2008 07:06:35 PM
Hey... I decided I wanted to dress up with my friend when we went to the local Ren Fair.... Smiley

Here is my dress on the dressform and then on me... Smiley

there was no gap.... my dressform can't get my body shape.......

here is me in it

I'm in the middle... the purple/crimson dress...

here is the back when I was swordfighting my boyfriend Smiley

I had to alter the pattern which i think it was McCalls...

i didn't have enough of the fabric for the sleeves... so i did bell sleeves with the extra fabric left from the skirt... Smiley

Bugaboo1 helped me... Smiley
And.... I had to change the way i did the lace up back because i refused to put 20 eyelets on some fabric so i bought some eyelet tape.... it was a lifesaver... i did some shoddy sewing cuz i had to get it done quick and i left the skirt too long cuz i'm really short... haha...

Lemme know what you think,
