1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Avengers Owl Ornaments (Updated) Almost Too Many Pictures on: December 19, 2013 08:59:33 AM
I love owls and what you did was so cute! Great imagination. I will attempt to recreate these but I know that I will not get anywhere as close to perfection like these! Awesome job!

Happy Holidays!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / The Grinch felt ornament on: December 17, 2013 07:22:52 AM
I am so in love with this!

My husband has dubbed himself the Grinch and as I was thinking of what I should get him for Christmas this popped into my head, not as a gift but as a gift tag! My inspiration came from two different Pinterest posts, one-a felt ornament, the other a painted globe ornament.

Very quick to make, done in under 3 hours and filled with two cotton balls pulled apart.

The pictures don't do it justice...

I created a personalized cover for my generic planner when I realized that I was too cheap to pay $35+ for a planner I was drooling over online...works for me, I'm in love with it!

The owl is a replica of one that I found on Pinterest, my version doesn't do it justice but with practice they will get better.

Recycling my daughter's old clothes while learning how to sew. I'm still trying to figure out some kind of closure and also I think it needs something on the outside to spruce it up. Any ideas?


Thanks for taking a peek!!!!

Once you have crocheted the head part half way you need to cut strands of hair and make a loop in the middle of the strand.

From the top of the head pull the loop into the underside of the head and then pull the loop up through another hole adjacent to it. Take the loose ends of the strand and pull it though the loop that you just pulled up from the underside of the head and then pull tightly.

After that it just basically shaping the hairline and start filling it in. Just try to mark where the eyes are going to go! Wink

Hope this helps!

She's so pretty!! How did u ever do the eyes? *way to craft is up!*

My eldest daughter is really into anime (manga) and she can draw fairly well- I told her to design some eyes and I embroidered the eyes onto felt that I traced onto tear away stabilizer. I then glued the eyes on with hot glue.

Great job! I absolutely LOVE her eyes and her hair.  Planning on making her any friends?

Yes I am - my sister in law and my youngest daughter have already staked claim to #'s 2 & 3. I can't make them that fast though. lol

Great colors!!!- for a closure you should try to crochet a loop on one side that would be big enough to go over the top and a button on the other side!

I absolutely thrilled to have accomplished this doll- she came out much better than I had hoped for! I saw a doll online with a pattern but I really suck at following patterns to the letter (its much easier following diagrams for crochet patterns that come from other countries-takes the guess work out of the task), anywho... like I said I really can't follow a pattern so this doll is made up of part pattern, part winging it Grin

Let me know what you think!

My daughter designed the eyes and I embroidered it onto felt with tear away stabilizer:

This is the doll in the making-head was held on by safety pins and I hadn't made her dress yet Tongue  p.s.:don't mind the date on the photo-camera gaffe Roll Eyes
