1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Nyan Cat Scarf on: November 13, 2011 11:46:40 AM
Thank you everyone! I'm so glad you guys like it. Unfortunately I don't have a pattern since I'm more of a freehand crocheter. I used sc for the cat and just alternated colors for each piece then sc a black border around it. For the rainbow I used hdc and just changed colors. I didn't do the top "tabs" of purple and red until after. Then I just added those on afterwards. A lot of weaving it.

This prolly didn't make any sort of sense but I hope it helped a little?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Nyan Cat Scarf on: October 23, 2011 11:38:27 AM
My friend's birthday is coming up and he's obsessed with Nyan Cat. He once mentioned how he'd love a Nyan scarf so I made one up as a birthday gift.

Here's me wearing it:

A close-up of the cat:

And look how long it is! I had to wrap it around my neck three times to get it to an appropriate length. Next time I make one I think I'll make it quite a bit shorter:

And that's all folks! Thanks for checking it out. I'm so excited about this one. Smiley

My 19yo loves this and wants one!

Any chance of a pattern?

I don't have an acutal pattern, I'm sorry. But I can direct you to this pixie hat pattern which is similar: http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2009/09/crochet-pixie-hat.html Just leave out the bobbles around the edge and add the face. I hope that helps a little.

Great job! My son still sleeps with the one I made for him! Smiley Smiley

Aw, that's super cute. Smiley

i have! i've been watching a whole bunch of episodes on veoh, and i have to say that i'm in LOVE. haha. it's suuuuch a cute show.
Cool! Good for you!

One of my favorite episodes is when Zim is shrunk and inside Dib. Gaz thinks he's playing a video game and takes the controls from him. ~_~

Haha, that's such a funny one! I think that one of my favorites is the one where Gir becomes the house because he can't eat tacos. Smiley

My friend cannot see this. She'd go crazy.
Well done!

Oh no! Better hide it from her. Wink
Hehe, thanks.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Foodie Hats [hoho, salad, watermelon] on: January 19, 2010 09:04:03 PM
I love the salad hat especially, but they're all really great!   Grin

Hehe, thanks. Smiley I think that one's one of my favorites too. The only drawback is that I really don't like salads irl. :p

My favorite is the hoho whatever hat! I also like the salad hat just 'cause it's funny.

Thanks. Cheesy The hoho is my favorite too. I wanna make one for myself. Cheesy

These are so good! My favorite is probably the watermelon. I love how you made the seeds.

Thank you! Smiley I'm really glad you like the watermelon. I was feeling pretty iffy on it.

The salad hat is great! We had salad dressing day at my school too, but my class was assigned Greek salad dressing so it quickly turned into toga day.

That's so funny. I wish I had thought of a Greek salad!

Ive never seen one either all the guys I have been with, and all my guy friends are circumcised. Its really uncommon for a boy not to be circumcised around here while he is still in the hospital (or if jewish or  for medical reasons before they are big enough to feel the pain as bad), at least now adays. I'm sure in the older generations its more comman to have an uncircumcised male.

Haha, yeah. The idea of an uncurcumsized one scared me! I'm not sure what I'd do with it. XD

Wow, this is so delightfully vulgar!! You are very brave my dear. Wink

Hehe, thanks. Not as brave as you probally think, though. I pretty much just hide it under my yarn stash away from my mom. XD
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Koi Fish Neckalce ~ on: January 19, 2010 08:57:12 PM
Ooooo!!! I have GOT to find one of those fish so I can make jewelry!  That is too cute!!!

Thanks so much. Cheesy I found mine in a little kid's classroom. :p

This is wonderful! I, too, will have to keep an eye out for jellies!

Thank you.

I love how you've angled it so it looks like it's swimming up your neck (I don't know if that was the idea, it's how it looks to me!).

I also pfft your claim of buck teeth Tongue

Haha, it kindof does! I seriously didn't mean that, but now that you said it, I love it. And that's so sweet of you. Smiley Thanks.

This is just adorable! I want one Smiley!!

Thanks! All you need is a jelly toy, thick needle, and tiny chain. Smiley

if they are craft paint acrylics, they shouldnt come off in the wash. i have plenty of clothing with accidental and on purpose craft acrylic on them.

you could also turn them inside out and wash them on the gentle or lingerie setting. add fabric medium next time.. it helps the paint stay and not be stiff

They are make for general facepaint, which means they wash off extremely easily. But your ideas are good. I'll try to find some fabric meduim. Thanks much. Cheesy

You need to iron the painted part before washing the pants to set the acrylic paint. I suggest, since it is a pant leg.... Lay pants so image is flat and put an old towel or t-shirt over the painted part and iron onto the old towel or t-shirt. You also should put something in the pant leg to keep it from adhering to the back of the pants. This could be a small piece of fabric or even some cardboard paper. Point is you want it flat and you should not iron directly onto the paint. You don't want to set any crinkles!  Smiley

Def. hand wash and put them in the dryer. This will continue to set the painting.

I have done this many times and it always works for me. I found out that I should iron from a popular acrylic paint website (Liquitex).

There was a little fading for me, but not much. Sorry if my instructions are confusing...  Undecided

They are very cute!

Thank you so much. Your instructions actually helped a lot. I'll see what I can do.

oh that's awesome!

Thanks so much! I'm glad you like them.

That is an adorable and thoughtful gift! They turned out beautifully!

Thanks so much. Cheesy

these are not only cute and adorable but so thoughtful. I bet your friends loved them!

Thank you. They did end up liking them a lot more than I anticipated, which I was greatful for. The only problem with this gift is that everyone liked them so much that the rest of my cousins are demanding one for when they get married. XD
