1  Wallet from a Pizza Box in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sassenach_Mel on: August 02, 2008 06:27:33 AM
I made this back in May just for fun. Smiley **Sorry for the blurry pictures**  Found the pattern at:

You could use any food box you wanted, provided it was made from a lightweight cardboard. I chose a frozen pizza box.  It's really easy to do, took less than 10 minutes.  It would be cool to just have in your purse or pocket, show how green you are.  I used a rubber band for the closer, but a piece of elastic would have probably been better. I was in a crafting mood though, not a buying mood.

Thanks for looking!

2  A Pet Mouse for my Nephew! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Sassenach_Mel on: January 22, 2008 08:14:55 AM
I made this little mouse for my 2-year old nephew.  His babysitter's oldest son has a pet mouse and now that's all he talks about or wants.  He should hopefully be getting it in the mail today. I hope he likes it! It's the first thing I've crocheted that wasn't flat!

Anyway, I whipped this up in a couple of hours with some scrap yarn and using this pattern: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=369114

Changes I made to the pattern: I embroidered the eyes, instead of using buttons.  Otherwise, I think it's pretty much the same.  Next time, I would use clear thread to sew the pink part of the ears to the main part, but I didn't have any. It was a last minute project! Also, the pictures make it look like I put on the ears lopsided, but I really didn't. It's how he "sat" for the picture.  Also, he can lay down, we just thought he looked cute this way.

Hopefully, I've posted these pictures correctly. Tell me what you think!

I think he's pretty dang cute!
