21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / delicious foodie hats ~ [sooo much pictures] on: April 28, 2009 10:29:29 PM
I've been creating hats like craaazy. My favorites are foodie themed. I have a bajillion ideas that I have running around in my head and I can't make them fast enough.

I adore this strawberry hat, the red section was my first attempt at felting. I got bored after 20 minutes of handfelting, so it's not that fuzzy and you can still see the stiches really clearly. Next time I'm definatally doing the machine felting.

Close up of the leaves and yellow heart seeds:

I also made a chocolate chip berret:

Modling it, the color is more loyal in this picture:

Aaaaaaaand, a PANCAKE. Nom:

These aren't foodie, but I decided to throw them in anyways instead of starting a whole new topic. My religion teacher requested a black beanie with two yellow stripes. It reminds me of a bumble bee, but he likes it:

This was made for a girl at my school. Basically she told me she wanted a black kitty beanie, however I added the large bow with rinestones as a surpise. It's a pin so she can remove it if she wanted to. If you knew her, you would have no clue how well it fits her personality:

If you're a newborn, you may enjoy this baby-soft yellow bunny hat:

Thanks so much for looking! Comments and contructive critisism is definatally appriciated. Smiley
22  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / blue monkey ~ [MORE MONKEYS! ninja & apple green] on: April 22, 2009 12:11:32 AM
A friend of mine is turning 20 in a few weeks, and she asked if I would make her a birthday present. She asked for either a penguin, monkey, or fish, and I chose the monkey because it seemed interesting and it was the only one that I hadn't made before.

close up of the face:

I added a pink flower for extra cuteness:

She's so much cuter in person and I can't wait to give her to the birthday girl. Smiley


I have been busy making more monkeys! Another friend of mine saw the origional blue one, and wanted a bright, candy-apple green monkey.

A different friend of mine wanted me to make a monkey version of a drawing someone had drawn for him. I eagerly took the challange. This is the drawing:

And here is my monkey:

All of his gear is removeable:

Thanks for looking. Smiley

A little late, I know.

I made this little guy for a little family party we were having at my cousin's house. I wanted to feel festive without showing up in bunnie ears, so I came up with this little guy.

The inspiration and the craft:

Thanks so much for looking~!!! <3

i gave him to my friend, Ashley, and she ADORES him.
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / weiner puppy neck warmer :D [NOW WITH PATTERN] :) on: March 28, 2009 02:23:37 PM
last night i woke up with the idea for a weiner puppy scarf.

close up on the face:

this picture shows the true colors [please ignore whatever my face was trying to do, haha] :

I wanted to add little paws, but ever design i came up with, i didn't like. do you have any sudgestions?

EDIT: I added a pattern. ^0^

This is my first pattern, so please bare with me. Feel free to correct me on any mistakes or mess-ups. You can adapt this pattern however you like, maybe to create differant breeds, make it for yourself, or create a cute present for that doggy lover friend of yours. All I ask is that you don't sell it. Smiley

I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a 6.00 mm hook. This pattern can adapt to pretty much any yarn or hook, I think.

For the entire scarf, I used a single stich crochet, so this should be pretty easy for a beginner. Smiley

To start off, make a slipstich and chain two.
In the first stich, single stich once.

Turn it so that the tail is facing downwards and do two single stiches in the first stich and one in the next.

Row 2: 2 single stiches in the first stich and one single stich in the next two.

Row 3: 2 single stiches in the first stich and one single stich in the next three.

Row 4: 2 single stiches in the first stich and one single stich in the next four.

Row 5: 2 single stiches in the first stich and one single stich in the next five.

Row 6: 2 single stiches in the first stich and one single stich in the next six.

Row 7: one single stich accross the whole row. continue this with each row until you get it as long as you'd like, minus the tail.

When you're almost ready for the tail, start to decrease until your row is five stiches accross. To decrease, just skip the first stich in the row and do one single stich accross the rest of the row.

For the tail, do one single stich accross the whole row for five rows. Then decrease again until you're left with one stich. tie the knot and cut the yarn.

Now for the ears. You need to repeat this twice, once for each ear.

Chain five stiches. Do one single stich in each row for three rows.

Row 4: Decrease once, one single stich in the next four.

Row 5: Decrease once, one single stich in the next three.

Tie a knot and cut the yarn. Repeat for the second ear.

On the back of the scarf, I put a strap [as seen in the picture below] to keep the back attached. for this strap, Simply chain three and do one single stich in each stich until the strap is two rows longer than the width of your scarf. Tie a knot and cut the string.

For the collor, pick a differant color, and do the same as you did with the strap (chain three, single stich in each stich) until it is long enough to wrap around the neck of your dog. Tie a knot and cut the string.

For the eyes and nose, I cut peices of black and white felt in the shape that I wanted and super glued them in place. With the black felt, the glue turned parts of it white, so I used black sharpie to color over those parts.

Sew everything in place and try it on.

As I said before, this is my first pattern, so i'm not even sure if it makes any sence. I hope that you can figure it out, and if you have any sudgestions to make it better, please let me know. Also, I would LOVE to see pictures of your guys creations. Smiley

ps: I couldn't resist adding a picture of my puppy, the wiener dog to inspire it. Smiley

26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / ice cream sundae ~ on: March 25, 2009 12:00:35 AM
I've finally made something for myself and i simply ADORE it. I wore it while shopping today, and two people offered to let me sell it in thier shops. I considered their offers, but I've been entertaining the idea of opening an etsy shop. oh well, we'll see what happens. Smiley

aaaand without further adoo (or however you spell that. >.<), I give you.... my ice cream sundae. Cheesy

Strawberry-razzberry ice cream covered with delicious dark chocolate sauce, finished off with fluffy whipped cream and a pink cherry on top. Good enough to eat. ~^-^~

I have a lot more ideas for foodie-themed hats, but if you have any, i'd LOVE to hear them. thanks ~
27  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The Blawb~ [picture fat]; on: March 23, 2009 08:06:56 AM
For me and my boyfriend's one-year, I made him a little blue (no, not bloo like my friend thinks he looks like) monster. It may not seems like the most appropriate aniversary gift, but we're a weird couple.

^top veiw. i have no idea how that swirl got there, but i think it's awesome.^

^i finished him in the eye doctor office. There they discovered that he has terrible eyesight and told him to pick out some glasses.^

^He loved these dashing purple frames.^

^He decided to help my friends pick out glasses, too.^

My boyfriend adored him and lovingly chrisined him "Blawb." ~^-^~
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Hairclips ~ on: March 05, 2009 10:19:52 PM
I'm becoming a hairclip-making machine. It's the thing people ask for most from me, which doesn't bother me because they're quick, easy, and cheap to make. This allows me to give them to people for free which i prefer because I don't like charging people if I don't have to.

The one thing I regret is taking pictures of only two. I'll try to remember to take pictures of them before I give them away.

I made myself a candy one today. I'm not 100% happy with it, but it's okay:

For the backs of all of them, I superglue a piece of felt to hide all the ends and make them stirtyer (I can't spell). I cut two slits and put a bobby pin through them:

Most of them are hearts, though, like this blue one:

Hope you enjoyed that.
29  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / cute yoda doll ~ on: February 18, 2009 11:11:20 PM
my boyfriend's birthday is friday and i just finished his gift. he's a massive star wars fan, and yoda's his favorite character.

he's uber plushible and squishy. i wanted to add eyes, but i couldn't find my black felt. also, my terrible sewing skills are evident with his jedi robe. in all, i think that i could have done a better job, but i was running out of time. he'll still enjoy it, especially since i'm giving him a huge cookie to go with yoda. <3
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Colorful Neck Warmer on: February 03, 2009 05:46:17 PM
I made this neckwarmer for my Adopt-A-Youth parent, sort of like a year-log secret santa, after they gave me three skiens of this terrific colorful yarn. I only used 1 1/2 for it, so I have the rest to use for interesting goodies for myself. xD
