1  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
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Blue Bookworm~ on: January 05, 2010 12:35:53 PM
I had a craft trade with a friend of mine. She knit me a cube bunny (Adorable!) and I crocheted her a bookworm. she took the pictures and knit him a little top hat.

For the glasses, I just bent a peice of wire into the glasses shape and covered it with something called crochet thread?

Thanks for looking!

Update: This little guy was featured on Geek Crafts! Thank you so much. Cheesy Click here to go to the specific post.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Naruto's Sleeping Hat~ on: January 05, 2010 12:29:16 PM
I've recently started to watch Naruto (Just finally finished the first one. Those fillers were killer. Idk why I kept watching! However, on to Shippuden! Cheesy) and fell in love with his adorable cap he wears to sleep. As is becoming a tradition with me and animes I watch, I had to crochet it. I made it Thanksgiving day between dinner and eating pies. Everyone in my family thought I was making a black Santa cap until I got to the face. >.> Haha.

Reference picture:

My version! I debated between a crocheted ball or a pompom at the end, but I chose the ball because I felt it was more manly and I was making a "manly" hat. I espeshially love the toofs!:

A close up of the face. I absolutely love the nose and wanted everyone to see it, hehe:

Me wearing it. I was trying to go for the cute, sleepy, look, but I think I massivly failed. >.< Oh well, the hat is a little big, but I still love it:

Thanks for looking! Cheesy
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Kurodo from Bleach & a Soot Sprite from Totoro~ on: January 05, 2010 12:20:10 PM
I am a huge Bleach fan, and when I saw the Bount arc a while ago, I knew that I had to make the plushie form of Kurodo. He's a very minor character, but he was so cute and funny. I think that I made him a little creepy looking and he gets super chubby and deformed when I put things in him, but I love him and that's all that counts. :p

A reference picture. (He's the pink bunny):

Whole thing. He's a working bag with a real zipper:

His face. I used real studs for the eyes:

His tie and buttons:

Also, as a bonus for all you Ghibli fans, I also made a soot sprite for a friend for Christmas. He's the Totoro version because I was too lazy to add arms and legs. :p He was really easy to make, though. I basically just crocheted a black ball and sewed on two white circles for eyes.

Reference picture:

Full body. I think he's really cute, but if I was going to make another one, I think I would use fuzzier yarn that time around:

Close up of eyes:

Thank you so much for looking!
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Yoyo~ on: January 05, 2010 12:06:36 PM
Me and my friend Katie love to listen to Hoops and Yoyo songs so when Christmas time rolled around, I knew I had to make plushies of them for her. Unfortunally, I ran out of time before I could make Hoops, but I did finish Yoyo!

Full body shot:

Face shot. I sewed on his eyes, nose, and mouth, but litterally minutes before I gave him to Katie, I realized that I completely forgot about the eyebrows! So I quickly sharpied them on, haha:

Peeking out of the top of a present:

Thanks much for looking.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Link Blanket~ on: January 05, 2010 12:01:43 PM
Last year, I thougth up an awesome idea to make the boyfriend for Christmas. Sadly, it was about three days after the last one, so I had to wait a whole year to give it to him. Luckly, we made it the year, so I was able make it!

I present, the original 8-bit Nintendo Link blanket!

Before he was all sewn up. I ended up arranging him during a blackout at our house with the little flashlight you see in the corner:

Sewn together. He collectedly took 54 tan squares, 38 green squares, and 70 brown squares, which is about 162 squares total:

The boy holding it up. Dispite his less-than-amused expression, he really did like it. I just caught him off gaurd when I took the picture:

I think that this project is the one that I'm the most proud of. I also have to mention enemyairship's mario blanket even though most of you have probally already seen it, because looking at it helped me a lot while putting Link together.

Thanks for looking.
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Wedding Dollies ~ on: July 28, 2009 04:17:44 PM
My cousin got married on Sunday and I couldn't afford to get them a gift, so, as usual when in these situations, I whipped out my crochet hook and made them their present: a little bride and groom doll that are supposed to look like them! These are my first human amigurumis.

The bride went barefoot, hense the lack of shoes. My mom helped me cut out clothes to sew them. I didn't add faces because I couldn't figure out a style of eyes that didn't make them look like aliens at the time. Also, I forgot to take a close-up of the rings, but I added gold thread on thier left hands so they could be officially married.

I bought the small boquet of flowers at Micheals and used the left over tulle and ribbon to make it pretty and decorative. Also, I added pearl beading on the top of the bodice for prettyness:

I came up with the idea for a corset backing, but my mom sewed it on because I was busy sewing the groom's vest together.

The finishing touch, the garter:

I gave it to them early, so that they could be used as a cute decoration (My grandma, who's in the picture, made the yummy/gorgeous cake. She was arranging the tulle around it when the picture was taken. She's gunna kill me for posting this picture. :p):

And here's a shot of the real couple, right after they were declaired Mr. and Mrs.:

Comments or contructive crit please. Thanks so much for looking. Cheesy
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ice Cream Painted Pants ~ on: July 25, 2009 09:00:36 AM
I painted an ice cream on my pants!

Close up of top:

Ice cream deliciousness:

I used some random acirlic (sp?) paints that I found around my house. I'm going to have to handwash it all now, because it'll wash out if I throw it in the washer and dryer. Does anyone know how to prevent this? Like a spray or somehting I can use to make it permenent? Thanks
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Birthday Bow Hairclip ~ on: July 24, 2009 06:32:26 PM
My cousin's wedding is in a few days and I still needed a hair accessory to go with my dress. I origionally wanted a large, fake daisy, but when I was in the giftwrapping section of Micheal's, I saw this HUGE gift bow. And I knew it would be perfect. I took it home and hot glue gun-ed it to a french hairclip.




MySpace style picture of me wearing it (Ignore the red nose, I just got a sunburn yesterday from working in the garden where my cousin's wedding is going to be held.):

Maybe I'll take a picture with me wearing it with the dress. Probally not though. I tend to run away when others point cameras at me. Wink
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Koi Fish Neckalce ~ on: June 28, 2009 12:35:21 PM
I found a cute little jelly koi fish at my church and decided that it'd make the cutest necklace. I threaded a small chain through holes that I poked with a huge honker needle. And this is what I ended up with.

Eep, buck teeth. >.<

Close up (Please ignore the frizzy/damaged looking hair. I def need a haircut):

Thanks for looking. Cheesy
