1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunny for Pullip Doll (Pic Heavy) on: January 08, 2010 07:13:33 PM
I decided to crochet a little bunny for my Pullip doll, Ella.  Its done in #10 thread with a #7 hook from this Miffy pattern, but obviously scaled it down quite a bit by changing the yarn and hook.  For those of you not familiar with Pullips, they are 1:6 scale, or about the same size as a Barbie doll.

C&C always encouraged Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Altered Barbie Basics Dress on: January 07, 2010 07:43:21 AM
Hi, this is really my first attempt at thread crochet.  I got the pattern from Lynne Sears' Barbie Basics - a big PDF with a ton of Barbie patterns.  It was a little tight on Ella's 27cm SBH-M Obitsu, so I crocheted some loops on the back seam and made it a corset top, and didn't fasten it all the way to the top, so its an off the shoulder type dress.  This is the "Ruffle Party Dress".

The pics are a little yucky, but I was too excited about finishing her (she's a custom) to set up lighting and backdrops Smiley

C&C encouraged.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / My Mother-in-Law's dog passed away....[memorial ideas] on: December 18, 2009 05:43:12 AM
...and I want to make something special for her.  I want it to be something in Memory of Tanner, but nothing too sad... Maybe a picture of Tanner or something...

I guess I just want you guys to bounce some ideas off of me.  To let you know, I have a bunch of scrapbooking stuff, I crochet, work with polymer clay and resin.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll Wig from the Dollar Store! on: December 16, 2009 05:18:20 PM
Hey, I just got my first Pullip, and I've been crafting her new stuff.  This wig was made from two of those scrunchie hair thingies from the dollar store.  I took the elastic out, and sewed strips of it to a piece of fabric that was fitted to her head.  What do you think?  Not too bad for two bucks, huh?

I also took her lip color off with a magic eraser, and re-did them with a red colored pencil.  Then painted craft varnish on top.

Sorry for the horrible pics, all I have right now is my camera phone.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pullip Christmas Dress on: December 15, 2009 07:42:41 PM
I made this dress for my Pullip (Ala) doll.  Its all single crochet, worked in a round, with double crochet for the ruffles.

Her she is, decorating for Christmas!

This is the first dress I've made for her as I just got her last night.  What do you think?
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / New to embroidery, some Christmas gifts on: December 10, 2009 12:32:48 PM
My fiance picked me up a copy of Doodle Stitching as a random gift (he gets me random gifts when he sells a gun, nice boy).  So, I decided to start embroidering EVERYTHING Smiley  These are not my first, but maybe my 5th project or so... I basically started practicing stitches on a tote bag and then moved on to these.

I picked up an old sheet and cute shower curtain from the local thrift store and had the idea to make my cousin a cuff for Christmas:

Since it is kinda fat, if she doesn't want to wear it as a cuff, it can be a water bottle marker?  Or a coffee sleeve?  I don't know.  She's 15, maybe she'll wear it!  Oh, and her name is Rochelle, if you can't read it.  Back stitch, stem stitch, running stitch and french knots.

Next, I think I'll give this to my mom, in a picture frame.  I don't know, I bought the pattern on sale for 50 cents off of Urban Threads and just thought it was pretty.  Back stitch, stem stitch, split stitch, short and long, satin stitch, and french knots.

Well, what do you think of my beginning embroidery?  And sorry for the lame camera phone shots Smiley
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas! on: December 10, 2009 12:21:27 PM
For those of you who aren't familiar, Zero is the ghost dog pet of the main character in Nightmare Before Christmas.

My brother's girlfriend is obsessed with NMBC, and therefore, I figured I'd make her a ghost dog of her very own!  I used this pattern, and it was a bit difficult to follow, so I don't recommend it for beginners.  I also did it ami style instead of joining each row for the head, contrary to what the pattern suggests.  I don't like to join rows Smiley

It took me FOREVER, so she better love it!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Found this great link for making/upcycling yarn! on: November 22, 2009 01:52:52 PM
Click here for the article.  Its basically a lot of ideas for making yarn out of old stuff.

I love the VHS tape idea, my mom has a pile of old VHS tapes that I was supposed to go through and save what I wanted, and now I'm actually motivated to do it so I can use the rest as yarn!  They'd make great shopping bags Smiley

Just thought I'd share.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I Speak for the Trees! Lorax Amigurumi! PATTERN ADDED!! on: November 20, 2009 06:27:06 PM
Yeeeee I'm so excited about how this guy came out!  I made up the pattern.  The yarn is red heart super saver in "carrot" and some random off-yellow from my g-ma's yarn stash (which I was lucky enough to inherit when she passed).  I crocheted the eyes as well.

Well, what do you think?  If y'all want a pattern, let me know.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ukulele Case! on: November 19, 2009 12:53:59 PM
Not sure if this is the right place for this, but it is a bag...

Just wanted something light and slightly protective for tooling around with my ukulele.  Its some fleece I had left over from making a dog bed, some pink knit that I had for the back of a blanket, and a cut up bandana for the strap.  I filled the heart with part of a nerf ball and sewed it sloppily on purpose for that "hand made" look.  I had a random zipper in lime green that worked out quite well in length and color Smiley

What do you think?

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, its a Kala Makala Dolphin Soprano.  Excellent sound for a cheapie Smiley
