1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Permanently marking yarn? on: November 01, 2008 10:34:11 PM
I'm making a Spider Jerusalem amigurumi for my boyfriend's birthday (http://www.starstore.com/acatalog/dc_spider_jerusalem-01.jpg for a picture). I'm trying to do the tattoos too. I tried cutting the shapes out of felt but that's not working so well.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in drawing on yarn. I don't want the color to come out if it ever needs to be washed. Will a permanent marker be enough? Or should I actually get a fabric marker that requires heat setting. I'm using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn, so I believe it's synthetic.

Any other advice on adding the tattoo design any other way would also be appreciated (I'm not good enough at cross-stitching to attempt it that way).
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My first amigurumi- Bedtime Cthulhu on: July 01, 2008 01:31:15 PM
Hey everyone, just wanted to show off my first amigurumi.  I made it for my boyfriend.  I used the pattern found here at http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/2008/05/tiny-cthulhu-free-pattern.html with a bit of embellishment.  It took about 3 full days of work, from when I woke up to bedtime.  Lots of photos ahead!

Here he is with his night cap and star-spawn "plushie."

And my cat thinks he's extremely nombly.  That's a crocheted catnip squid in the background.

Thanks for looking and comments are always appreciated!
