oh wow! i need a pattern for this - my friend just started up as a breastfeeding counsellor and she needs some of these for modelling latching on etc with the dolls, and also for embarrassing the dads Wink

do you have a link to the pattern you use, or one you designed yourself? i am happy to paypal for it xxx

I just kinda made it up as I was going along. I am the WORST at writing patterns, as I am making some more this weekend, I will try to write it down as I go.

I will gladly give the pattern to who ever wants it, if it is going towards a good cause (or not a good cause, just for the pure love of BOOBS, lol)
35  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Tata's - NSFW (Adult) - NOW WITH PATTERN! on: February 03, 2012 07:58:31 AM
Well, I kinda just made a few of these as a joke and on a whim I put them up at this little shop I sell some of my stuff at. Here they are, crocheted boobies!

to change your image viewing settings please click here
They were such a big hit, people were buying them for dirty santa gifts, the drunks at the bar next door to the shop all came in and bought some, cause you know who doesnt love BOOBS!

Also gave a goof up one to my dog and he LOVES it!

I am feverishly working on more as February is breast cancer awareness month!
(I hope I posted this correctly, please dont yell at me if it is not blocked from sensitive eyes)

I hope that makes sense, I am terrible at writing patterns (I make it up as I was going along and in my head this all makes sense, but not everyone may get it)

G Hook
small amount of "nipple" pink
small amount of "aerole" brown
off white
(I used "I love this yarn" from hobby lobby just because I love that yarn,lol)
poly fill stuffing

R1 with pink - magic circle 4 sc in loop, sl to first sc
R2 - 1 sc in each , sl to connect
R3 - repeat round 2
(now of course you can modify the nipples to be as long or short as you want)
R4 - (switch to brown) 2 sc in each sc, (8 sc)
R5 - 2 dc in each sc (16dc)
(again your aeroles can be as wide or thin as you desire)
At this point I turned the nipple inside out, for some reason it just looks better, also this is a good spot to tie off and weave in the ends of those two colors
R6 - (switch to off white), 2dc in first dc, 1 sc in next, repeat (24 dc)
R7 -2dc in first dc, 1 dc in next 2 dc, repeat (32 dc)
R8- 1 dc in first 3 dc, 2 dc in next, repeat (40 dc)
R9-10 1 dc in each dc (40 dc)
R11 - 1 dc in first 3 dc, decrease (dc 2 together). repeat (32 dc)
R12 - 1 dc in first 2 dc, decrease (dc 2 together, repeat (24 dc)
(here is a good spot to stuff about half way full, the firmness is all a matter of opinion, some like firmer boobies, some like softer (I also thought of putting a squeaker in, havent found any yet ,lol)
R13 - 1 dc in first dc, decrease (2 dc together), repeat (16 dc)
Finish stuffing as full as you want
R14 - DC 2 together (16 dc)
R15 - SC 2 together (8 sc), I did singles because I just thought it look neater

Use a yarn needle and weave in and out around the stitches and pull tight to close

This pattern should make a pretty good size "C" cup boob and the rows can easily be increased or decreased to adjust the size!

I have had a lot of ideas of how to spice up the boobies, nipple rings, tattoos, pasties, etc!

36  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Just some felt applique pictures I made on: February 03, 2012 07:49:41 AM
So I am normally a crocheter, but after all the crocheting I did for christmas, needless to say I am a little worn out, so I decided to take a break and make something else and I came up with these:

And my fav

They are all framed in thrift store frames I spray painted and then I used felt flowers I cut out with the sizzix (and the skull) and just kinda free formed them onto some scrap fabric. I am going to hang them as a grouping somewhere in my house.
37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Finally finished - Runestone embroidery on: February 03, 2012 07:43:03 AM
Here it was WIP
And here is the completed:

I am really happy with how it turned out, I am going to look for a nice thick rustic looking wood frame for it

I am the worst at giving directions or teaching, but I will try.
First using a pair of scissors you dont mind getting dull, cut the tops of the beer cans (just poke through the top and cut around.

Then cut down the side (I cut down the side with the bar code) all the way down and then cut the bottoms off. Now you will have a flat sheet (if your cans were not very clean, this is a good time to wash the sheets off well. Just a wet dish cloth and dry well) WARNING: These sheets will have sharp edges, be careful.

Then I used several different flower dies and cut out different flower shapes (the sizzix orginal dies or bigz are the only ones that will cut through the cans, cant use sixxlits).
The cool thing is after you cut them out, the sizzix kinda rounds the edges so they are not as sharp.

I used a straw wreath and wrapped it with wide ribbon all the way around and secured in the back with floral pins.

Then just starting at the top, just worked my way around, layering and fiilling in places around the wreath, topped it off with a big bow!

Hope that explained it,here are a few more things I have made from beer cans:

These are just some plan picks, I used a brad to secure them in the middle and used wire to attach to some wooden sticks.

These are tree ornaments, I stuck the sheets of cans to sticky backed fun foam, then cut out the shapes, Christmas tree, angel and snowflake!

It is from Skråmsta, Uppland, Sweden and it says:
"Saxe had these memorials made in memory of Est, his fader, and Torgunn (in memory of) her son.
40  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted I-pad sleeve on: January 27, 2012 08:00:39 AM
I have a TON of old, cheap arylic yarn (like from the 70's that someone gave me), really this stuff is so weird and plasticy feeling, you really cant make anything wearable from it. But it works great for useful items like this ipad sleeve:

I love the colors of this old yarn, it also has a really nice stretch to it, makes for great coozies of all types. (I have also made some can coozies and lighter covers, no pics, but I will make some more and take pics)
