1  Festive Murloc Christmas Ornament in Winter Holidays by Ecterine on: November 23, 2009 09:38:32 PM
I made a Murloc (from World of Warcraft)!

Here's a real murloc, in case you haven't seen one:


1. Using felt, cut out the murloc fins (hair?). Make them an inch or two longer than you need them to be, you can trim them later.

2. Fold a piece of fabric, right sides together. Trace the murloc onto the fabric. Don't bother tracing his fins.

3. Sew from the murloc's butt, all the way to where the fins (hair?) start.

4. Tuck the felt fins into the opening, so that they poke down into the inside-out-murloc's belly. They will be upside down, with the longer pointy ends facing inside of him. Sew over them, leaving a 1" opening at the end. It's okay if you have a few felt fins left, they are easy to hand sew into place.

5. Cut out the murloc, being careful not to cut over your stitches. Leave a little extra around your 1" opening to make it easier to sew shut. Clip the curves.

6. Turn your murloc right side out. I used a crochet hook to help with the arms and legs, they are very difficult. His fins should pop up.

7. Lightly stuff your murloc, and sew the opening shut.

9. Add decorative embroidery, button eyes, and a hook so you can 
10. hang him on the tree. Smiley

You can also use the pattern to cut 2 out of felt, and blanket stitch them together. It would be much easier than turning fabric right-side-out!

I love the ones you made! That is really cute fabric, and your grandkids are adorable! I love that all their hats match.

You inspired me to make one for my son! I hope you don't mind if I add my pics to your thread, rather than starting a new one? If not, I'll take them down :-)

(He gets mad when I set him down - but it is the best picture of the entire hat that I took)

3  Scottie Dog Purse (Image Heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ecterine on: December 21, 2008 10:28:14 PM
I made a purse for my husband's aunt (my aunt-in-law?), who's entire house is scottie-dog themed.

I used the Jordy Bag tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.msg9268#msg9268) but drew a lot of inspiration from the I Love Apples tote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210245.msg2253963#msg2253963). (I'm not sure about proper etiquette regarding these things... I hope I didn't do too much to copy ronise's I Love Apples tote.)

It can be turned inside out:

Here are the ones that Canamharris sent me! Smiley

Doo doot doo doot doo doot! Doot!

She made this after an incompetent doctor tore his foreskin! The onesie cheered him up! Wink
It says "I'm intact, don't retract!"

Somehow he managed to stop drooling for the picture.

Dad worked in a genetics lab during college, so extra funny!

My favorite Smiley

5  Team Fortess 2 Baby Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Ecterine on: July 11, 2008 09:53:35 PM
This is my first-ever stenciling project (and my first-ever son), I had to brag! Sorry the pics aren't that great, he doesn't like to hold still.

I used kind-of-thick junk mail (I didn't have freezer paper) to make the stencil, and acrylic paint.

(I think he sees a spy!)

My finger hurts from pushing so hard on the razor!

6  I made a headcrab! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Ecterine on: December 29, 2007 08:48:29 PM
I crocheted a headcrab (from Half-Life)! This is the second thing I've made, so he isn't perfect.

Here's what they look like in the game (Half-Life and Half-Life 2):

And here is mine:

I guess I should have done more red on the legs, and I wish I could have made his mouth go "in" more. Oh well, I still like him  Smiley
