11  Amigurumi Flamingo in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by cranberrry2001 on: June 19, 2012 07:31:28 PM
This flamingo was requested by a co-worker of mine who loves flamingos. She has an assortment of flamingos adorning her desk, from fluffy flamingos, to furry flamingos, to a metal flamingo that is a lawn ornament. Yes, this is on her desk Smiley. At any rate, this flamingos color scheme matches that of the lawn ornament she has on her desk. I consider this, the "mini me" version.

Initially when I was working her up I had started at what is now the bum thinking I would use it as the head.  I later realized that the body would need to be much bigger in comparison, and since I was trying to keep this little one at 4 - 6 inches tall I decided the head shall be a bum! Smiley lol She does measure in at 6 inches! Smiley

She has movable legs and wings as well as a movable neck. A plastic coated wire was inserted inside the length of the neck to sturdy it for a more realistic look and to add a posing options.

All in all I'm pretty excited about how she turned out. I've been able to pass along the pattern as well and you can see variations of her here if you belong to ravelry.

If you'd like to read more about the work up of the flamingo you can see pictures and comments here and here.

hope you like her! Smiley

12  Large Amigurumi Teddy Bear from scratch! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by cranberrry2001 on: April 24, 2012 04:21:58 PM
This Teddy Bear was made for a friends niece Smiley. He picked out the nose he wanted and I did the rest Smiley. I plan on reworking the pattern a bit before passing it along to others to try out but wanted to share pictures of the first one I finished. Smiley I'd love your input!

Measuring in at just over 10 1/2 inches tall with jointed arms and sewn on legs I'm hoping this bear will comfort my friends niece at night, when watching tv, playing dress up or whenever she just needs so cuddle with something Smiley.

Hope you like my teddy! If I were to keep her I'd call her Petunia... I think she looks like a Petunia, no? It's probably because of the heart nose... Wink Smiley

On my star wars amigurumi making journey... I present r2d2 times two Smiley

A few friends had been wanting some star wars amigurumi's lately so while I know one is spoken for the other one I'm sure will be claimed soon! LOL Smiley

I really like how they are jointed using just yarn Smiley the pattern provides these options - super user friendly! Smiley

14  Luke! We are your fathers! (Darth Vader Amigurumi) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by cranberrry2001 on: February 19, 2012 06:45:10 PM
"Join me on the dark side and we shall rule the universe.
That is all you need to know."

Well apparently - Darth made a few recruits who were such big fans of his that they wanted to look JUST like him! LOL Or, or, lots of friends have shown interest and wanted one enough for me to make another set of three. Yes, it's true! That would really be why. ;0)

Darth had his convincing moments to be sure! Like the night I had assembled most of all of them, snapped in the eyes and they all looked a bit upset that I hadn't put them entirely together. But Darth didn't have a strong enough force over dinner and whatever else was holding my attention because it did take a bit for me to get back to them. And can I just say they are high maintenance? LOL Lots of detail went into each of these guys, the helmet, the cape, the buttons (knots) on their belts. Anyways, clearly I love my friends Smiley

I hope you like the pictures! Smiley Thanks for reading!

16  Viking beard and hat set in Crochet: Completed Projects by cranberrry2001 on: February 05, 2012 05:30:29 PM
Woo woo! Smiley This is such a fun set - I put it on as soon as I finished it and my sister and I had a good laugh for about 10 minutes. tee hee ANYONE can look like a dude just putting this set on Smiley The yarn covers nearly full length of my torso! (He said he wanted the beard to be long and he's a 6'4" dude so I'm sure it'll be fine for him Cheesy) I was able to get a picture of the set on a large tan pillow of ours to show you what it looks like all laid out. My husbands going to be tickled pink when he sees them! Smiley

17  Fall out 3 BobbleHead in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by cranberrry2001 on: January 21, 2012 05:58:27 PM
Back in 2009 I was asked to make an amigurumi of the Fallout 3 Bobblehead after finishing the bobblehead I showed my husband and he immediately wanted one Smiley I've had several other projects come up since December 2009 but I hadn't forgotten his request... while I was hoping to get his bobblehead done by his birthday in July, July came and went without me starting a stitch on it...

December came and I was determined to have it done for him by Christmas. Between Christmas shopping, baking and the usual errands I worked on the bobblehead and knew that though my husband really liked the original work, that I could be more detailed and really wow him Smiley. I would be more detailed... oh yes.

I used oval safety eyes instead of circular ones I had on the previous bobblehead and gave great care to the shape of his hair and hands. Initially writing down the pattern as I went, for now its still impossible for his hair to be captured by writing it in a pattern... pattern writing aside I was able to bring this guy to life in time for Christmas Smiley (yay!) and recently snagged the bobble from his desk long enough to take a few pics to share with you! Smiley I hope you like him!! Smiley

18  Ewok and Chewbacca Amigurumis! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by cranberrry2001 on: January 18, 2012 07:39:03 PM
A friend of mine requested I make her an Ewok and Chewbacca miniature - I was able to find a pattern for them, which was a nice change for me ( I usually have to make up a pattern for the lil dudes I make as I go ).

I'm so excited to share them with you Smiley

The yarn I used was originally a chunky wool yarn - I unraveled the yarn to make it thinner and easier to work with. No small task I assure you Smiley but well worth it! Smiley

19  Re: Cinnamon Star Ornaments - are in the oven! in Winter Holidays by cranberrry2001 on: December 03, 2011 08:31:23 AM
I love making these! Last year my 8 year old granddaughter made them and gave out as gifts to the family (though they were not as precise as yours)! And I love the smell of them baking!

they are so yummy smelling Cheesy My husband asked when they were baking if I was sure they weren't edible lol Smiley

These are nice...my family loves the smell...I just hope I can keep them from eating them. Wink

lol - let them sample some of the "dough" and have some water handy if they cannot resist Smiley - best to you!! Smiley

I think you all are right, its like the ones I do are being baked.  Well, Im going to make more later and let them air dry this time. 

with all this talk I think I need to make another batch myself Smiley have to give the coworkers some presents, I think this would be ideal Smiley

here is the car freshner Smiley for the holidays I had one single (larger) blue green jingle bell and decided to put it on this one. I like the way the circular jingle bells look Cheesy

I made these for an ornament swap in 2007; dried in the dehydrator, they still smell good.
The applesauce/cinnamon shapes in the middle of the wreaths are about an inch. The designs are puff paint.

omigoodness grannyleah! Smiley how adorable! Smiley thank you so much for sharing! Cheesy so pretty!
