1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Lovesick on: February 12, 2011 03:42:14 AM
Valentines day always gets me as being faaaar too commercial.  Me and my husband sort of boycott Valentines day, simply because we don't need a day to focus on the fact that we love one another because, as sickly as that sounds, we love each other, every day.

I always make sure I make him a card though.  And this is this years one

You know when you've found true love, when you can barf on someone and they don't leave.  *giggles*
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Dalek of crochetted goodness (silly comic on pg2) on: January 24, 2011 06:25:36 AM
So Before Xmas, before I even started making the crochetted Pylon I recently put up.  I started on making a Dalek for my friend.  He is a massive dr who fan, his collection is extensive, in that he has a room dedicated to all the dr Who stuff he has, so I wanted to get him something I knew he probably wouldn't have.

So Voila!  one crochetted Dalek

You know the silliest part, that even though it took me over a month and a bit of various trial and error, making up random stitches I have no idea whether they officially exist or not, and swearing a fair bit.  The part that I am most proud of is the teeny bit of light blue at the end of the sticky out bit or..whatever those bits of daleks are called.

I hope people like it.  I am going to try and write the pattern down, although thats gonna be...interesting due to the weird random things I did.  Like The grey grill looking bit I crochetted directly over the top of the black and, i'm not entirely sure how I would go about decribing that in a pattern. I'll give it a shot anyway.

The dalek is much redder in real life and stands about 25cm high
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cuddly Pylon on: December 24, 2010 05:25:42 AM
My husband is a nut when it comes to teh national grid,  he loves anything electrical and so for xmas I decided to crochet a pylon.  I learnt a lot from this experience.  Mainly to never ever crochet a pylon again.

Although if he is a good boy next year I promised him i'd crochet him a substation.

The picture does not do this monster justice, its over a foot in height and was done over many nights.

I think perhaps he is the only man in the world with a cuddly pylon and the only man in the world who would actually want one.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / This little piggy on: July 24, 2010 08:09:36 AM
It my neice's 3rd birthday in a couple of days and she is absolutely besotted with pigs, so I made her a bag that is in the shape of a pig.  It took me about 3 days of near continuous work, as I messed up the inner bag part a couple of times before I figgured out a better way of doing it

I really hope she loves it, I want to make one for me now hehehe
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Wiggity Wig on: May 24, 2010 03:37:17 PM
I got a new Ball-jointed doll (shes a bobobie sprite for anyone interested)  a couple of weeks ago. I named her Wren, she came with a gorgeous long red wig but it didnt fit the character I had in her mind, so I looked around online for a replacement wig to fit the techy sort of character I had for her and couldn't find one that would work for her character so I had to resort to making one.  This was the result.

I'm actually really pleased with how it turned out.  I didnt expect it to be that great but its beyond great its perfect for how I imagined her to be.

 Shes a sort of Abbey from NCIS but more reserved.  I am going to attempt to make her some clothes. I want to make her punk stuff but I tried to make a simple skirt yesterday and it was epic fail.  how can you fail making a skirt?  Seriously I suck at sewing, thats why having this wig turn out okay was actually a surprise.

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first bugbear on: May 17, 2010 12:11:54 AM

This is my bugbear, I made it for the monster craftswap.  I wanted to make something really random.  Bugbears are actually quite aggressive and very ugly, but this one doesnt fit the mould, as a result it has no friends and its family dont talk to it.

Poor bugbear
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blakes first proper outfit on: May 08, 2010 12:34:59 PM
I finally made my little 12cm tall vampire Ji Ball jointed doll some clothes.  She's really happy now, although she doesnt like being called cute.  Shes a vampire so i'd be wary of annoying her.

With the exception of the hippo I made the socks, dress, hairbow and wig.  I had several attempts at making the dress before one actually came out right.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blakes Scarf on: May 07, 2010 02:05:19 PM
I have a ball jointed dall called Blake.  She's a bit evil being a vampire an all and she doesn't usually do anything she doesn't want to do.  I made her a scarf and for once she actually liked something I made her, well in fairness she liked the white wig I made her, and the skirt and socks shes also wearing in the pictures, so maybe i'm good for something after all hehehe

The scarf was pretty fiddly to make simply because Blake is only 12 cms tall so making a scarf to scale meant I had to use the really tiny crochet hook which up until now has never really been touched.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Easter Amy Amigurumi on: February 28, 2010 02:49:36 AM

This pattern can be found for free on this ladys lovely blog http://kandjdolls.blogspot.com/2010/02/pink-little-lady.html

The pattern is really easy to follow and I had great fun making her, now that i've taught myself how to read patterns theres suddenly so many patterns I want to make myself. Im going to be posting my mermaid pattern up very shortly from  ages ago.  And I may make another caravan so I can write the pattern down for that, although dont hold me to that cause the caravan was a serious pain in the butt hehehe.

Anyway this is Amy, as with all my creations shes a bit on the evil side, as a general rule the cuter something is, then the more evil it is.  She will act all sweet and innocent infront of you but the mnute your back is turned she'll be plotting your downfall.  So be warned
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tasty strawberry hat on: February 24, 2010 12:10:12 AM

This is my strawberry hat...well I made it but its not for me, I wish it was.  I am going to have to make more of these. 
This one is for my best friends baby, shes due tomorrow so i'm really excited for her.
