21  Birthday Jellyfish in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yellowduckie on: January 29, 2008 04:26:56 PM
Based on the "Jessica's Jellyfish" pattern, and a photo taken by the friend.

Used a Wendy/Peter Pan yarn (for the life of me I can't figure out what the color name is.  Also used a Plymouth yarn from the 24K Italian collection.  It's very shiny.

I add a little edging at the bottom, with some beads hanging from the edging.

Here's also a view from the top.

So does it seems like a cool birthday present?   Cheesy

Here are my finished January 2008 Block: Dreamcatcher

Here is my finished filler block for January: Dayna's Pinwheel

And both side by side.  I did pretty good getting them the same size.  Medium weight, Red Heart Super Saver acyclic yarn.

I can hardly wait for February.

I've redone my square with an I hook and I'm quite happy with it.

There it is sitting on the blocking pad I just made (with corrgated cardboard, three layers of batting and part of a cotton sheet):

I usually leave a tail it I'm going to sew crocheted things together.

And to see the difference hook size makes:

Now on to the pinwheel filler square.  Thankfully I copied the pattern before the site disappears.  I wonder if we over taxed their bandwidth quota for the month.  That can happen sometimes.  Good thing the WayBack Machine exists (the web archive site).

Here is my first attempt.  I didn't have an I hook, so I used a G to try it out.  Since this was going to be a test square, I used some Red Heart Multicolor Super Saver Acrylic (Shades of brown,green).

Came out 9.5" square.  I'll be picking up an I hook today and I'll try again.

I agree with everyone else.

These makers are elegant, uncomplicated & charming.

Having just discovered amigurumi, I'm in dire need of markers.  So with wire and pliers in hand I'm off to make some.

Just a quick update to show the markers:

I'm using them all the time.  They're wonderful.  Thanks to aliciasjoy for posting how to make them.

So pretty.  It inspired me to buy the pattern, and I'm in the middle of making one now.  Thank you, onceupon, for pointing the way to this pattern.

Sadly, I got confused about some of the pattern, but Jessica is very cool about answering questions.  Smiley

I'll post mine when I get one done (who knows how long that will be).


Well, what do you know.  I finished my first jellyfish.

I'm now on to make one for a someone's birthday. 

This was a great pattern.

27  Pouch for Mom's Day in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yellowduckie on: May 07, 2005 09:34:40 PM
  I just love this tutorial.  I've been making pouches for storing stuff for projects (fabric for sewing stuff).

Anyways, have some stuff left over from a quilt top I've made (and one day will quilt).

Today I thought, "Hey isn't it mom's day tomorrow?  So I made this pouch for the "mom" in my life.

The pouch:

and the lining:

Hope she likes it.

28  first project: a test t-shirt before the real thing in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by yellowduckie on: November 16, 2004 11:08:01 AM
So with all the information gleaned here, and some website, I've made a screen, and tested it on a t-shirt.

Here is the original picture, my cat sleeping:

Here is the screen I made (used a brooding lamp with 250 watt bulb, 12 inches away for 12 mins):

Heatset using instructions from this site:

Here is the t-shirt:

Here is a closeup of the kitty:

I got the brooding lamp for a local feed store, and the bulb from a local photo shop.

I used photoshop to turn the picture into white/black high contrast, printed onto a transparency.  You turn the picture into a grayscale pict, then use Threshold to make it high contrast.  You adjust the threshold until it's the way you want.

Will be making the real t-shirts later with some friends who are coming over to play.  Cheesy
