2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / How do I give Sackboy an afro? on: August 01, 2011 05:11:05 PM
I'm new to amigurumi so I haven't decorated my things much. I was thinking it would be cute to make a Sackboy that matches my boyfriend skin tone. How do I give it an afro? Is it just a ton of tiny tassels around the head or is there another way I can do it?

Also suggestions for inexpensive yarn in the right color would be appreciated. My boyfriend is not very light nor he is he very dark...Imagine a carmel color maybe the color of a cardboard box.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Father's Day Crafts on: July 08, 2011 10:54:52 PM
My dad has been very supportive of me this past year. While I bet he wouldn't mind another massage from me I wanted to give him something different this year. But what's a poor student to do? Craft!

I told him that he had to wear what I made him all day. He hammed it up and got lots of compliments throughout the day. Originally his button was going to say "#1 Dad" but he wasn't going to be the only dad at the table so I thought it seemed unfair. My nephew refers to him as Papa so Big Papa fit well.

I came home early from brunch to find that my step-dad was going out to dinner with the family. I whipped this up really quick. Some backstory: When my mom was pregnant with my brother she asked my step dad a ton of "What if..." questions about their chil. My step-dad said he didn't care if he ran around with a rubber glove over his head exclaiming "I'm a squid! I'm a squid!" as long as he was happy. I've been told that the same goes for all of us.

The front

The inside

The toner started to run off instantly...Any tips? I think next time I may spray some workable fixative before printing to give the ink something to stick to.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Reception Gift? on: July 08, 2011 04:46:54 PM
Please let me know if this is not allowed. I need gift help

My boyfriend will be flying out "around the end of the month" to go to the wedding reception of mutual friends. I saw mutual friends but I don't know them very well. Early this year they flew my boyfriend and I out for an all expenses paid trip to Seattle. The wined and dined us and showed us around providing an amazing four days in Seattle.

This couple has been together for ten years. At first they decided that for political reasons they would not have a marriage and opted for domestic partnership. Now for their tenth anniversary they will be having a wedding reception but no wedding ritual.

What do I get a couple that already lives together? I'm setting my boyfriend to the task of getting as much details from the male friend as possible. I find is hard to believe that the female of the couple will not be wearing anything special to her wedding reception. I've asked him to see if she has jewelry to wear. Other than jewelry or a mixed media portrait of the couple what do you think I can craft for them? Also, she has an allergy to gluten. I do not know if she has skin allergies as well.
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Rainbow Altered Art Books Pic Chubby on: July 05, 2011 07:54:52 PM
I made two sets of altered art books in a rainbow theme.

Each book is bound pamphlet style.

I used lots of fun stuff in these books. There are eight pages in each including scrap booking paper, watercolor paper, and repurposed materials like vintage newspaper and a Monet poster.

The purple books are especially fun with some rumpled and scribbled canvas paper, acetate, scrap watercolor paper, and scrapbook papers. Here are some pictures of the pages below.

Thanks for looking!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pink Origami Earrings on: July 05, 2011 07:37:56 PM
Well not entirely origami Smiley These were a WIP since forever ago and I wanted to finally finish them.

I painted some heart findings with bubble pink nail polish. Unfortunately when I pieced it all together the polish became gouged and I no longer have the polish to fix it. The stars are made of paper. Everything was sprayed with several layers of matte finish.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with the triforce on: June 02, 2011 04:09:38 PM
Anyone know of a triangle motif that is solid but will seam together flat? When I slip stitch my triangles together they way to be a ball instead of a panel for pillow. I'd make a 3D pillow but I don't have a lot of the soft yellow yarn. I have enough for three 4" triangle motifs and some leftover for accents.
8  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 62 ENTRIES / Layers of the Earth on: May 08, 2011 08:44:01 PM
First off, it's nice to be able to post a topic on Mother's Day about Mother Earth.

My camera hates the lighting in my house so bear with me.

First I wet felted a layered ball. The idea is you can open up the planet to see all the layers.

Let me break it down for you:
Inner Core
Outer Core

A view of the Earth's surface

But wait, what's that swimming in the deep heading south?

A giant octopus! The clasp has a long loop so little fingers can easily play.

Red scrap yarn= a bloody choker. The original pattern can be in this fellow craftster's post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60207.0

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I am now one happy hooker on: May 01, 2011 10:15:10 PM
Hello hookers! I now get the privilege to brag that I am one of you. Previously I had made a wash cloth but crocheting didn't quite stick. A month or two later I went over to my step-mom's for her help in showing me how to crochet. Now I am a crochet monster! Mwhahaha Anyways, she helped me in making this chunky green scarflette out of Lion Brand Homespun yarn.

The scarflette has these really awesome buttons that feature a crest and griffon type creatures.

I then went on to obsessively make a bobble stitch hat but my yarn hair is too big to put the hat over. Not that I've tried but it's too warm to struggle with it right now.
