1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doggie Ninni on: April 24, 2012 02:35:41 AM
After seeing the Ninnis I made for the Ninni swap my boss kept going on at me to make him a dog one.
He was very specific about colour (lime green) do you think any of the various shades of green felt I have were the right one?
Nope I had to troll every shop and website I could find to get the right one!

Anyway here he is in all his glory!

(please ignore the mess!)

as you can see no tail!

close up arty shot!

My boss was sort of pleased with Rex (such original naming going on at the Post Office! I named him Alphonse but apparetnly that isn't a 'doggie name') he liked the colour and the mouth but where is his tail?

Anyways I hope you guys like him! Any C&C welcome  Grin
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Cyril the cheeky dragon! on: July 11, 2011 03:15:34 AM
HoboBot told me that he was lonely up on the desk shelf. Personally I think he just wanted a friend to boss around!!
Anyway I planned to make another robot, maybe a girlie one  Kiss but somehow a she-bot became a boy dragon??
I'm not really sure how it happened, it wasn't my plan but what can you do?  Tongue

As with my other polymer clay creations so far he is made with Sculpley Studio (one day I will use it all up!)
His snout was longer but whilst I was putting on his horns it got a bit squished, that stuff is so flipping soft!

Enough of my rambling here is Cyril the Cheeky Dragon

He is such a poser! Getting up close and personal with the camera!!

Cyril looks like he is lost in thought in this picture

I did plan on curling his tail around him, that's why it is so long, but honestly
I had had enough of the super softness by then and just put him in the oven

I would like to have put some ridges doen his back but I was afraid of
deforming even more than his poor stubby snout

Well poor HoboBot didn't have a friend for long, my three sorry four year old nephew decided that Cyril would have more at his house with Batman and the Stormtroopers!  Roll Eyes

C&C welcome
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / HoboBot on: June 29, 2011 03:45:12 AM
This is the 4th thing I have made. He was lots of fun to make. I used Sculpley Studio (I need to use it up before I can try other makes)
He is approximately 2.5inchies tall. I used enamel paint to give him a metallic look and all the little metal bits are from a watch.

He is a bit wonky, something happened during the cooking  Sad

His eyes are two tiny buttons painted with enamel and fixed on with crafting wire

His buttons are a tiny swarovski crystal bead, a small pice of clay and a tiny pearl

All the little bits are from a watch movement and affixed with sewing pins cut down in length

I hope you like him c&c welcome
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / RoboCat on: June 19, 2011 03:39:33 AM
A good friend of mine offered to help me make my blog look awesome and so I thought I would make him something as an early thank you.

Here is RoboCat

I had wanted to make some tires for him, but my friend likes him this way!

I hope you like him. C&C welcome
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My first polymer clay models ~ Octopi and Owl on: June 19, 2011 03:15:33 AM
Now that I have finished Uni I meet up with my friend once a week to catch up.
We thought it would be fun to learn a new crafty skill each week.
This is our first week, we decided to make some models.
Enough of my blathering here are the first three things I made.

Elba the Owl

She is about 1" tall, I painted on the eyes and little v shapes ( not happy with those as they aren't in the middle grr)

Birtil the Red

Birtil is the newest recruit of King Algernon's Messenger Service

Birtil's older brother Dai the Green

Dai likes to prentend that he is Cthulhu and make his tentacles into wings!

Birtil and Dai hanging out together

They were made with Sculply Studio. I don't like it very much as it is too soft, are there any better alternatives?
I hope you like them c&c welcome
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pirate Bunny and Steampunk Cat Ninnis on: June 12, 2011 08:20:23 AM
I have just completed my first ever swap.
I took part in the Monster Ninni Swap.
My partners have both received their Ninnis so I thought I would share them with you.

Rupert the Pirate Bunny Ninni made for Amycavy

Rupert with his costume and treasure box

He doesn't have a cutlass because his wit is sharper than any sword!!! He even has a gold tooth  Grin
Rupert has collected treasures from all over the seven seas!

Ruby the Steampunk Goth Cat made for DeathToLems

Ruby in her Victoriana style dress

Ruby even has her own journal to document her adventures, (which matches her dress) and a cute detatchable brooch

I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them  Grin
C&C welcome
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mortimer and Oswald~The Best Monster Friends on: June 11, 2011 09:21:18 AM
Here are my two latest amigurumi monsters Mortimer the Tri-horned and Oswald the Cyclops.
They are the best of friends and always get into trouble together.
Mortimer is the brains and Oswald is the funny bone!!
I just made them up as I went along, I never follow patterns or recipes.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet dolls clothes patterns?? on: September 05, 2008 11:43:15 AM
Does anybody know of good crochet clothes patterns for amigurumi dolls? I am making a girl doll for my niece and she wants a wardrobe for her but I haven't got a clue how to make cute bonnets and shawls. I have made some dresses etc from some fat quarters I had spare but I would like to make her some winter outfits?

Any good books or websites out there? If not how would I scale down a regular baby bonnet pattern to fit my doll???

Cheers  Smiley
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Confusing Japanese Chart on: September 02, 2008 09:05:08 AM
I am having an issue with a Japanese amigurumi chart that I found. I understand how to read it but I have noticed that there is a ch symbol before the number of the row eg


now does this mean I add 1 chain at the beginning of the row, or at the end or not at all?Huh Arrrrrrr
I have tried adding it at the beginning of the row but then each round has 1 extra stitch when I count.
I am really confused.
