Materials needed:
   size G/4(US) crochet hook
   blue worsted weight yarn to make  head
   white worsted weight yarn to make head
   small amounts of black and pink floss to make face
   stitch marker, large needle for sewing/embroidery
   teeny tiny bow for decoration (optional)

If you don't have these colors of yarn or floss you can use whatever color you like...

3  Neighbor, this crap's for you! (2nd x-stitch) in Needlework: Completed Projects by rynimari on: December 04, 2008 08:31:02 PM
Okay so I guess this x-stitch is kinda addictive... Now I'm going to have to go out and buy some real floss....

I made this one for my neighbor, who has shown me that the word "seriously" can be used as a noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb, verb, etc etc etc..... I have seriously never heard anyone use the word as much as her. Smiley

Once again I did not use floss- it's crochet thread. And I wanted it to be glittery... so I rummaged through the glazes I use on my polymer clay and voila! Sparkle Glaze! I think it will also help it lay better in the frame because as it dries its stiffens the fabric...

and now I will stop talking your head off!!!

4  Mom, this crap's for you! in Needlework: Completed Projects by rynimari on: December 04, 2008 09:14:47 AM
**DISCLAIMER -- I don't do needlework. I don't like needles and needles don't like me. I prefer hooks and yarn, or polymer clay and my hands. So what you are about to see is not pretty.  Wink **

When you have children, you will notice that some things about you change. For instance, you can no have the potty mouth of a truck driver. I have 2 small children and recently my mom pointed out to me that I say "Holy crap" an awful lot. This is because I am refraining from saying the phrase I am actually thinking.

So with this thought in mind; when I found a blank piece of cross stitch material, I decided to give it a try. I didn't read any instructions anywhere and I didn't even use thread or floss or whatever it is you are supposed to use. (It's crochet thread, in case you were wondering)

So, Mom, this crap's for you!

and I did discover one thing while working on this project.....
needles and thread aren't all that bad... maybe there will be a reconciliation in the future  Grin

6  The Story of the LINT BUNNY (amigurumi) (IMG HEAVY!) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by rynimari on: December 02, 2008 07:49:13 PM
It was laundry day, and all was going well...
when I opened my dryer and my eyes fell....

...upon a tiny little lint bunny poised to munch on a sock!
I let out a squeal and gave him quite a shock!

He leaped up and squealed right back at me...
Then dived deep down into the laundry...

"Oh please little bunny, please come out!"
"I promise not to scream or shout...."

I promised him love and lots of free socks...
And out poked his face as quick as a fox...

I gave him a home...
and some room to roam...

and now on laundry day...
there is nothing to dismay...
for i have a tiny assistant...
who's never very distant!

comments welcome!

7  amigurumi jelly-octofish! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by rynimari on: November 26, 2008 07:00:16 PM
Hi everyone! I used to crochet a long time ago...
and then polymer clay took over my life...

But I am making a crochet comeback....

I made this little guy intending him to look like a jellyfish... but it seems thats subjective... half the people who have seen him so far think he's a jellyfish... the other half think he's an octopus.... SO... I have decided he is a jelly-octofish!

Jelly-octofish is entirely freeform... So there is no pattern to go with him... I don't even quite remember how I crocheted him (I was watching a House marathon)  Grin

Thanks for looking! I welcome any and all comments!

8  mixed media kokeshi dolls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rynimari on: November 18, 2008 04:12:42 PM
Hi! This is my first post anywhere other than the polymer clay board....

The kokeshi pictured are kind of an experiment in working with new materials....

They are wood forms with polymer clay hair buns glued on. They are completely handpainted and then glossed with triple thick glaze.

Share your thoughts please!!! ^_^

10  Teeny Tiny Kokeshi Doll **UPDATED(already)** in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rynimari on: November 10, 2008 10:18:12 PM
Oooooooh... the excitement!
I made a teeny tiny japanese kokeshi doll tonight!

She was made with scrap polymer clay and then hand painted with acrylic paints.

Here she is:

And now one question remains..... to gloss or not to gloss?

Please let me know what you think of her!


Well she has been glossed. entirely Sad
I was going to just gloss her clothes and hair, but then...
So I ended up smearing it across her face.
Don't you hate when things like that happen!?

Here she is:

I hope she still looks ok... what do you guys think?
