1  A Nightmare before Christmas: Amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by v3nu5 on: May 21, 2015 11:16:47 AM
My mother requested Jack & Sally amigurumi dolls for her colleague, a drama teacher who works at her Middle School that is leaving.  Used an old pattern I drafted for amigurumis a while back and winged some bits as I went.

I haven't submitted anything here for quite some time. I feel like I lost my touch and couldn't keep up here on Craftster. Be completely honest, I need to adjust this pattern to create a more accurate Jack & Sally pattern. Undecided Jack & Sally's faces needs work.  Thanks!

2  World of Warcraft amigurumi: Pandaren Monk in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by v3nu5 on: March 28, 2014 11:00:35 AM
I set out on an adventure of crochet and that of heroes.
I drafted my own rough pattern for a panda and tweaked it a bit to fit my idea.
Her arms are moveable, face is hand painted, and she is anatomically correct. (She has breasts)
I sculpted her armor, buttons, bead necklace and earrings out of wire and polymer clay. Hand stitched her felt monk pajamas.
She was a gift for my sister.

Her close up, and the back to show her hair. My favorite part is her little fingers & her beaded necklace.

Thanks for looking and any comments & crit. For Azeroth!

Everything is beautiful. The hats for charity have a great design, fantasticmio, I love the teal and gray chunky cowl and earrings bunny1kenobi. Dewshinesdopp, your long necklaces look so pretty.

I've missed out on some crafting but I had a death in the family to prepare for. I did make about 35 rosary bracelets for family members who attended funeral services at the request of my mom. Here is a small peak of the colors and kind I made. Every single one is different and is a full rosary on memory wire.
The bracelets took me about 5 days to finish and I made a total of 46, including small versions for little girls.

I also made a hat using yarn my father found for me at savers. Needed something to keep my hands busy in between bracelets. At least they were things on my list.

Finished another project today. Feels really good. A lot is in part due to this thread. Thanks for the motivation all!
Finish slippers for my grandmother. Worked on them off and on for the last 2 weeks. I kept a ball of emerald redheart and a J hook in my purse. I liked having a project with me everywhere I went. They fit her nicely, but she can still wear socks under if she gets cold.

Averia's package got to me today on a day that was going badly- I needed something to look forward to. I broke my camera and my car broke down yesterday.
Here's my Loot! Thank you for such a great, thoughtful, and well made wow swap package Averia.

The whole package! I love the earrings her son made for me. Grin

The glasses (one didn't make it Sad ) and The awesome laptop bags my husband and I got! Yay!

7  A full moon to howl at. in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by v3nu5 on: May 22, 2013 02:28:44 PM
Challenging my self is something that I have come to expect when creating anything for some one else other than my self. Being a perfectionist is one thing but crocheting something I wasn't sure I'd be able to with out a pattern was another. That's pretty much what happened when I set forth to create a werewolf amigurumi for a swap. World of Warcraft swap to be exact, and the lovely Averia's son was my target. Anyone who has agreed to swap with someone and craft for a young child knows that it can be a little daunting. Undecided How do you impress or makes something for a child that they'll be happy with?

He plays a Worgen hunter in game and I thought this deserves a great amigurumi replica. I searched for patterns online, found some but nothing with the detail I wanted to convey, so I started from scratch. My labor of love was rewarded when I asked for opinions on an online community where I felt the scrutiny could be brutally honest, reddit.com. A blogger by the name of Harper happened to see it and featured it on a gaming blog dedicated to World of Warcraft! (In my world of geek-dom that was a big deal to me!) Shocked I feel so proud to share him with you.

His arms and legs are pose-able, with pipe cleaners in each limb. I am most proud of his tiny fingers.

I hand sewed his clothes and even gave him felt undies.

Here he is in parts, ready to come to life.

Here's a link to the small article on WowInsider.

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Details of swap:
I know the swap title say World of Warcraft but we dont need to narrow it down. If you and your partner agree to swap other Blizzard game items, that will be up to you to discuss. With the announcing of another BlizzCon this year and so many awesome expansions, it was time we start another round of WoW Swap!

This will be a 4 point swap! Not too big, but given a month of craft time, it shouldnt take up too much gaming time. We'll go by size and how long it took you to make it.
By Point
-Large = 3 points
-Medium = 2 points
-Small = 1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
Any variation or combination to get you to 4 points is ok with me.
Please remember to discuss extras with your partner.

If you want to participate, remember don't post the questionnaire in the thread, PM it to me, thanks.

10  World of Warcraft or Blizzard Games? in New Swap Theme Ideas by v3nu5 on: February 28, 2013 04:49:35 PM

I was thinking another round of Warcraft but to include Diablo III & Star Craft since The Heart of the Swarm is due out soon. Sign ups mid-late March to mid April, 6 points with a month of crafting since it is around finals time? I do want to take school into consideration.

Blizzcon was just announced and I get pretty excited for the conference that I want to make things to wear or share with friends before we gather in (pun intended)hordes. I can organize as long as there is interest soon, closer to summer and I will have more on my plate and won't be able to give it all my attention. Let me know if any one has questions or concerns or send me pm's.

UPDATE:I thought I would include past round galleries for some incentive.
Wow Swap Round 3 gallery
WoW Swap Round 2 gallery
World of Warcraft Swap Gallery
World of Warcraft Addicts gallery
If i've missed any please link in comments or let me know so I can add it.
