1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Lemon Drop Kick on: February 26, 2011 07:49:17 AM
Hi. I wanted to share something I had entered for a contest but didn't win. I still like the picture and have it hanging in my living room. I think it took me like 5 to 8 hours to make this so I was a little disappointed.
12" by 18" crayon on paper.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Sweet Lolita For Katsucon: Skirt, Headbow, and Detachable Bows on Socks on: February 20, 2011 10:24:56 AM

I went to the anime convention Katsucon yesterday wearing a Sweet Lolita outfit. I had decided to make the skirt for a couple reasons: (1) I could sew (2) I did not want to spend money on a Name Brand (3) I didn't know what size I would be when I went to the conference since I'm trying to lose weight. The skirt is elastic banded so it can easily be put on. I used some lace trim and the ruffles on the bottom is another skirt I used to serve as my petticoat. The original petticoat I made ended up being too big. The bows were easy to make. I used left over fabric to make the bows. I'm going to make more detachable bows. Thanks for looking. Smiley
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Basic Mini Top hat for Sweet Lolita on: February 16, 2011 02:48:44 PM
 Grin Grin Grin I'm going to an anime convention on Saturday and wanted to have a better lolita outfit than the one I had last time I went to a convention. I saw the mini hats in the Gothic Lolita Bibles and just hat to make one for my outfit. This is what I came up with. It's simple but cute to me. They don't take too long to make and they are so much fun. I will attach haircombs to it sometime. I used bobbypins for now.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / kawaii bear hat:: edit :: rough tutorial on: January 19, 2011 05:38:07 PM
This super cute bear hat is my first real successful bear hat. It is leaps above my first hat that I had tried to make. I have to realize I need to keep it simple with things. But I loooove it.

I'm not good with reading patterns but I'm going at visualizing how to make something by pictures.

To make this hat you need to know how to:
 crochet a heart,
 a hat,
 half circles in varying sizes,
 how to use a tapestry needle,
cut out circles.

 I looked at a few websites to learn to make a heart because I needed a diagram.
I think I looked at this site to practice:

Th half circle I made up myself.

The eyes I looked at Kawaii bears from google. I love anime so the highlights were necessary. I used stiff felt and fabric glue.

Sew the pieces on with the tapestry needle. Smiley
I hope that helped!!!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / edit: My 1st Scoodie and it's the nonfolded rectangle type. rough tutorial added on: December 31, 2010 01:13:44 PM
I like scoodies (hooded scarves) but I don't care for the pointed tip so I set out to make a non pointy one. My boyfriend's mom asked me if I could make her a scoodie and I didn't want to make one I wasn't proud of... It's actually not that difficult just a little time consuming... I think I could make a trim for the edges but I like it as is. The one for myself will have bear ears. Smiley

Let me see if there is a good way to explain since I'm relatively bad with patterns.

I came up with the idea from the beanie hat that beginners usually make. You have 6 double crochets (dc) in the first real row so that the shape when it gets larger is a hexagon from pattern of the 2 double crochet (dc) in each hole... then the next row 2 dc then 1dc then 2dc.. next row 2dc then 1dc then 1dc then 2dc... then so on and so forth for the rows afterwards... you want like 10 rows or so of the increasing pattern but you could have a couple more if the person has a big head or big hair. then when you want it to be a hood you only crochet out 5 sides of the hexagon so that the base of the hood is the part you left alone... it will look funny at first but after like 14 rows or so it will look like a hood. then you make the scarf and attach everything with a tapestry needle.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Girly mohawk hat on: December 30, 2010 12:34:59 PM

This might be my favorite of the recent hats I've made. I'm thinking that I may add earflaps to it but I probably won't unless I make a Hello Kitty Applique for it. I think this might be the prototype for my little sister's birthday present. There is no felting happening to this hat. I used synthetic yarn on all parts.

Part of me also wants to add horse ears to it.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bleach!!! Kon Hat! on: December 29, 2010 10:59:36 AM
This hat is to help me practice my animal hat making skills. I love the show bleach... pretty much up to the 140 some episode... but i love kon no matter if i lost interest in watching the show.... so I made a kon hat....to the non anime/manga person it's just a lion hat....

Hope you enjoyed.. ps... making triangles is hard.. so i made squares and folded them into triangles for the mane...they are sturdy and easier to make.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Elephant Hat on: December 28, 2010 07:11:09 PM
 Grin This elephant hat is going to be for my little sister for her birthday. The hat is a wee bit large so I'm going to put on of those inexpensive beanies as the lining for the hat.. I think she will like it. Thanks for looking.

This girl was painted after the girl with the pink hair. Acrylic on Canvas 18 by 24in.

I liked painting her. I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to add depth to an already dark person.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Felt Hello Kitty Christmas Ornaments:: Now Modified w/ Christmas Tree and Wreath on: December 15, 2010 08:10:45 AM
i wanted to have an anime christmas tree but the bookmark ornaments where serving to be a challenge since I didn't have the materials ready to make it. I venture into my other love Hello Kitty. I used stiff felt, glitter felt, and regular felt. I love stiff felt. It is so easy to cut for small pieces. I have a progress shot. From me working on adding the whiskers. I hand drew each one and cut out each. This is a long process but I love the results. It felt so good to see my almost finished tree glittering. I also made three with glasses to incorporate more of the colors of my tree. I still need to add a few more things to my tree and then I'll update this post with my finished tree.

I drafted the pattern by looking at a picture of hello kitty but the glasses I made up on my own from remembering a nerd hello kitty picture i saw once.

Thanks for reading.

Update: I wanted to make a wreath to make the hallway more inviting. I bought a basic wreath from Target and then mini bulbs. Made some bows and added some Hello Kitty ornaments! Smiley
