1  Re: Creepy Cute Crochet-along? in Crochetalongs by seawood on: July 17, 2008 11:30:24 AM
OH, he is brilliant! Love it, I may well have a go at that one. I don't recall Bunnicula at all, maybe he never made it over this side of the pond, but perhaps I'll have a think about a Duckula...much the same idea, I guess. Grin

I almost forgot, here's my latest - it uses the basic head and body, plus the Day Of The Dead Guy's hat. My 2.5yo daughter decided THIS was the very thing for her Auntie's 27th birthday a couple of weeks ago.

I have no idea how she came up with it, but it's all exactly to her specs. I just did what I was told and Reggie the Spider was born. Full story here  Cheesy

Just to keep the ball rolling...

An ickle blue alien for my daughter, made from Sirdar Zanzibar. Holy hell to work with but I happen to have two more balls in different colours so I've gone and promised her a whole family...why do I do this to myself?!  Grin

I like the pattern on this, it's pretty easy. Not so sure about the antennae - maybe my yarn isn't quite right but I'm not sure they're going to hold that twist for long.

Currently on the hook: another Skeleton-Bride-turned-Princess in lilac for my Gran, and another Grim Reaper for my dad's desk. Pics shortly Grin

A desk Ninja for my sweetie (often accused of being one as he tends to slip into the office quietly!). Quite modded, this one - I wasn't keen on the felt face so I made a standard head and then adapted the Knight's helmet into a hood. He also has Fimo throwing stars - I wanted to make nunchucks but I didn't have any chain light enough.

Today's finish: a cleric for my mum.

Two small mods to this one - I made a morning star from Fimo rather than a felt mace because, well, that's what *my* cleric used to carry when I played AD&D many years ago (also it was fun to make). And the stole is a single piece which goes all the way round, I just thought it looked better on this guy.

Mine don't look as scary as the ones in the book...I think it's the safety eyes I'm using, the roundness gives them a little glint of light which is not as creepy, somehow. Also they ALWAYS look like they're smiling somehow, even the ones without mouths!

Fab Zoidberg  Grin Well done!

I love how adaptable these patterns are, you can just run away with your own ideas. Here are my latest...

A Knight needs his Lady, doesn't he? The Princess was adapted from the Skeleton Bride pattern. Was well-chuffed to get the hair right, cheers for the extra tutorial NeedleNoodles. Smiley

And a rear-view of the princess so you can see her hair and veil in all it's glory.

She is a *little* top-heavy - she stands up fine but I think I need to work on the hat a bit, it's not as narrow as I would have liked it.

6  DORMANT: Creepy Cute Crochet-along in Crochetalongs by seawood on: June 01, 2008 04:08:29 AM
There are quite a few of us making these cute little horrors from Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots and More!, so it's been suggested we have a crochet-along in the same way as the Amigurumi World one. So, no rules, no timing, just show us your makes (and moan about the patterns!).

Here are some of mine:

The Grim Reaper - minus scythe, that's tonight's job! I think he looks more like Munch's The Scream, but there you go...


Grim Reaper in the centre again now with scythe, Cthulhu on the right, and a little dude I more-or-less hijacked from Corporate Zombie - this is going to be a gift for a friend's birthday; we used to play AD&D back in the day and he has a little book and dice bag. He needs a haircut/ponytail making, though.

Currently working on a Knight, with a Princess (again, hijacked, this time from Skeleton Bride), a Cleric and Ninja on the drawing board...they're addictive, for sure, but I suggest you don't show the book to anyone until you've got comfortable with the patterns cos you'll be besiged with requests! Cheesy

Hope that's ok, never done one of these before...

7  Ickle Tiny Baby Mary Janes in Crochet: Completed Projects by seawood on: May 29, 2008 02:09:49 PM
Made these for a friend's new baby:

Blog entry here: http://www.crafts.carolinewood.co.uk/2008/05/round-and-round-and-round.html

They are a size 3-6mo, done in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in Willow, and the pattern is from the book Crochet In No Time by Melody Griffiths. Actually finished them a little while ago but I was waiting for the little one to arrive! Smiley

8  Daffodil Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by seawood on: May 11, 2008 06:52:35 AM

A wee hat for my wee girl. Very pleased with this, it worked up really quickly - it's Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in Willow, and the pattern is from the book Crochet In No Time by Melody Griffiths.

The daffodil, however, is an adaption from this fantastic pattern at http://crochetme.com/patterns/daffodils-spring - I know the author posted a thread here with this in recently but I can't for the life of me find it! I wanted to say a really big thank you because it inspired the colour of this hat and I was dying to try it out! I had to translate the pattern into British notation first, which I'm happy to share if anyone wants it. And then I found that the original pattern was unfortunately too big for the hat, so in the end I had to half-size it and rewrite to get a daff which measures about 3.5-4ins. I'm not sure of the etiquette for sharing an adapted pattern - perhaps someone can let me know (preferably the original poster if you see this!). But in principle I'm happy to share it and hopefully later I'm going to have a crack at some narcissi, even smaller.

There are some more pics in my blog at http://www.crafts.carolinewood.co.uk and that's where the pattern will be available to download eventually if it's ok to share the adaption/translation.

Best get on...I'm making the same hat again for a friend's daughter of the same age, but they live in New Zealand so I have to come up with an autumn flower now!  Grin

9  Another "Cheytown" dress (and a crochet hat!) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by seawood on: March 16, 2008 01:36:24 PM

Completely new here so I hope I don't make any cock-ups posting this! I just wanted to share and say a HUGE thank you for Cheytown's button shirt to toddler dress tutorial; I've thoroughly enjoyed making it, my daughter loves it and my head is just teeming with ideas. My sewing machine loves you, Cheytown  Grin

Pics are in my blog, which I think is ok to link to? Here they are:


The crochet hat is also my first foray into hooking Cheesy and I think it's come out quite nicely too.
