31  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Another pink poppet on: March 11, 2008 07:40:55 PM
This is the first poppet I've made that is meant to be a gift.  Gosh it is hard to give them away.  Luckily, my niece's birthday isn't until April.  I've dubbed this poppet April Evergreen until my niece finds out her true name. 

This was my first attempt at painting eyes too.  I like the color, but it came off pretty easily.  Should I have used some type of sealant or varnish on the back? 
The dress is the easy peasy dress, but I haven't actually finished it yet.  Have to make some clothes before the big give.
32  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Puffles, a penguin and 2 aminekos on: March 09, 2008 09:53:44 AM
I made these puffles and penguin back in December, but I like them.  The puffles are from the Club Penguin Game.  The penguin is from a free pattern on the Lion's Brand website.

My youngest son wanted a grey cat, and my older son wanted Tom from Tom and Jerry, so I had an excuse to make my first aminekos.

Thanks for looking Smiley
33  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Judi Dolls on: February 23, 2008 03:17:14 PM
Has anyone bought and used the Judi Ward doll patterns?  I was just looking them over, and I wanted to know what kind of success others have had with them.  I've read her name on this site many times. 
34  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A poppet named Delilah on: February 23, 2008 10:02:18 AM
I made a poppet with Freckles!

Don't you love the hair?  Thanks for looking Smiley
35  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dragon Poppet on: February 18, 2008 11:19:26 AM
So, I had no intention of creating this poppet, but as I searched for freckly poppet fabric, I came upon this beautiful cheetah print suede.  It just said dragon to me.  What do you think?

36  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Finally! My first poppet!...Now with dress tute on: February 11, 2008 08:18:57 PM
I am so excited that I finally conquered my fear of creating a poppet.  I have been so inspired by the many fantastic poppets out there, and I had to make one of my own.  I am in love.  Her name is Junebug Jewel.  Thank you Ghilie and all the poppet craftsters!

In her green dress

Poppet Halter dress
I made this dress late last night without a pattern, but here is a tute from memory.  I used an I hook and worsted weight yarn.
Starting at the neckline.
1.   With main color, ch 5
2.   turn *2 sc in 1st st, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in last st, ch 1, turn
3.   Continue making rows by increasing in the 1st st, sc across until the last stitch, increase in the last st, chain 1 and turn until the bodice can wrap around the poppet and join under the poppets tail. (I think I made 14 or 15 rows ...I should keep notes)
4.   Join the row with a slip stitch (I actually had to make a couple of chains to make the join, so the dress wouldnt be so tight)
5.   I then started to crochet in the round without joining.
6.   First round Sc in front loop only of all stitches
7.   second round *sc in both loops of next st, 2sc in next st*
8.   3rd round * sc, sc, 2sc*
9.   4th round all sc
10.   5th and 6th rounds all hdc
11.   7th and 8th round all dc
12.   9th round all sc.

Crisscross straps
With Contrasting color
Join the CC in a loop on the back of the dress to the right of the tail.
Ch 15
Join the chain  the left shoulder.
Sc across the neckline to the right shoulder.
Ch 15
Join the chain to the back of the dress to the left of the tail.
Finish off and weave in the ends or sc across from the last join to the first join under the tail. 

Hope that makes sense!

37  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Rudy the dachsund. on: January 21, 2008 08:40:38 AM
My husband wanted an itty, bitty dachsund, so I brought home a giant lab puppy Smiley  This is how I make it up to him.

It made him smile.
38  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / bunny became a dog on: January 18, 2008 09:26:06 PM
This is my first post, so I'm sorry if I screw it up.  I hadn't crocheted in quite awhile, but I came across this site when I was looking for a sock monkey pattern and got turned on to amigurumi.  I have spent the last few months getting reaquaintted with my hooks. 
I fell in love with Rheatheylia's lavender bunny and made one in gray.  I screwed up the stitch count on my next try and ended up making a dog instead.  I hope you like it Smiley
