1  COOKING / Dessert / Mini Sushi Cupcakes Part II on: January 02, 2009 08:55:42 PM

Last Christmas I made little bento boxes for my mom's work https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=233675.0 This year I made a giant platter for my work. And I incorporated some changes that people suggested last time I posted. Such as chocolate syrup for soy sauce. My mom suggested coloring coconut red for ginger, and coloring plain dragees orange for salmon roe.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fat Cats That Kinda Stack on: May 09, 2008 07:33:03 PM
LOVE mochimochiland's patterns. I couldn't wait to start on her stackable cats that I wasn't paying attention and messed up the pattern so they're not flat rectangles, they're cubes. The result is my fat cats who kinda stack. The brown is supposed to be a brown tabby. I'm very allergic to cats so I don't know the different kinds. Wiki said they're stripped so I tried stripes and it said they usually have green eyes! And the other is suppose to be a gray and white cat.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Who came first? Spends a day in Central Park IMG HEAVY on: May 09, 2008 07:28:46 PM
My reversible chicken and egg Who Came First stuffie. I named him Dinner. I took Dinner for sangria and then a walk around Central Park and the Time Warner Center in NYC. I think he liked it.
The pattern is in the Craft Magazine vol 6 by http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/?p=246

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Clothes IMG HEAVY on: May 09, 2008 07:20:50 PM
More people having babies. My friend asked me to make "stuff" for his friend's baby. "stuff" for me meant sweater, hat, booties so I bought 7 balls of yarn. When I handed him everything he told me he thought "stuff" meant HAT. So now I am trying to burn through 4 more pink balls of yarn HAHAHAH!!!

The pink sweater is a cape that I modified from http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babysweyokecard.htm because I suck at making sleeves - I always make them too small and I was too lazy to keep going.

The white sweater is from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62184.msg588576#msg588576 but I made it longer for the baby to cover her tummy.

I have no clue where I got the pattern for the hat, but it was called Preemie hat maybe?

5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Let me see yer grill! on: May 09, 2008 07:09:46 PM
I go to dental school. Because of that I have a weird obsession with teeth. Someone asked me to make a cat toy so just to be fitting... DENTURES! I couldn't understand the pattern for making the teeth, so I knitted a tube and sewed it down. And I wanted the top attached to the bottom so I used the tongue as a hinge. And I think I made the pink bases too thick. Next time I'd make them half their thickness. He liked it so much he said he wouldn't let his cats touch it.
The original pattern: http://crochetme.com/patterns/false-teeth

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Igor the Dodo on: May 09, 2008 07:04:34 PM
My friend loves this Dodo. I told him it's named after him (Igor). He was so happy, he went around telling everyone to look at Igor the Dodo... So it will remain Igor the Dodo.
Pattern is: http://www.crochetme.com/mauritius-dodo

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sea Creatures Galore - I've been a busy little bee IMG HEAVY on: May 09, 2008 06:58:57 PM
Now that my partner from the Science is Art Swap received her package, I can post my latest FOs

Purple starfish, teal jellyfish, green kelp, yellow brain coral, dolphin, brown manta ray and brown scarf with buttons that form a seahorse are all crocheted the others will be in the knitting forum.

I can't find all the links for the patterns I used, but here are some:

I couldn't find a pattern of a seahorse I liked, so I copied April Rose's idea of making a seahorse out of buttons https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=219000.0

I adjusted calista's crochet coin purse to make it look like yellow brain coral https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190715.0

Now that my partner from the Science is Art Swap received her package, I can post my latest FOs

A nautie from a lobster, blue and yellow sea nettle, green squid and pink sea anenome are all knitted the others will be in the crochet forum.

I don't remember where I got all the patterns but the nautie is from knitty, I made up the sea anenome pattern, the sea nettle I think is an Ana Paula pattern and the green squid is called "Naughty Squid" maybe?

10  COOKING / Dessert / Mini Sushi Cupcakes on: March 13, 2008 11:13:05 PM
When I came home for Christmas Break my mom informed me that I had to make my sushi cupcakes for her work. And somehow transport them by myself to her work. So instead of regular sized cupcakes, I made mini ones and put them in Japanese bento (lunch) boxes to helpl me carry them in.

3 days, 3 pounds of white sprinkles, 3 pounds of butter, 1 pound flour, 2 pounds powdered sugar, 1 pound sugar, 110 green cupcake foils, 10 bento (lunch) boxes, 10 chopsticks later, 1 bag gummy worms, and 1 bag gummy fish later

You think I could see these bento boxes of min sushi cupcakes for like $10-20?
