1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kingdom Hearts Heartless with tutorial *Corrections on: October 06, 2010 09:36:07 PM
I recently had the opportunity to work on this pattern again and found some mistakes. I hope that this hasn't caused too much headache. If anyone finds anymore please don't hesitate to let me know and I will correct them.
Hey everyone! So incredibly sorry that it has taken me so long to get this posted. I have been completely swamped lately with swaps and life in general. I tried last week to post this. Spent 2 hours typing it all out hit preview then hit a wrong button and two hours worth of work went away. Ugh. But anyway here it is. Smiley If you find any errors or have any questions about any part of the pattern please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll do my best to help. Thanks!

Fasten Off leaving tail to sew onto head later.
Theres no need to weave in the tail from the magic loop just make sure its tucked in behind the eye when you sew it on. It makes it puff out a little better.

Black yarn
Take 3 pipe cleaners twist the tops together and then start braiding until about a inch and a half from the bottom. Take the top that is twisted together and turn under about a half inch or so (it doesn't have to be exact) so that there will be no sharp edges poking out of the top.
1. Magic Loop 4
2. Sc inc, sc 3 - 5
3. 3-10 sc around -5
11. Sc inc, sc 4 - 6
12. 12-20 sc around - 6
21. Sc inc, sc 5 - 7 (insert pipe cleaners and crochet around them)
22. 22-30 sc around - 7
31. Sc inc, sc 6 - 8
32. 32-45 sc around
Fasten off leaving tail to sew to head.

Black yarn
1. Magic Loop 6
2. Sc inc each st around - 12
3. Sc, inc, repeat around - 18
4. 2 sc, inc, repeat around - 24
5. 3 sc, inc, repeat around - 30
6. 4 sc, inc, repeat around - 36
7. 5 sc, inc, repeat around - 42
8. 6 sc, inc, repeat around - 48
9. 7 sc, inc, repeat around - 54
10. 10-18 sc around -54
19. Sc 7, dec, repeat around - 48
20. Sc 6, dec, repeat around - 42
21. Sc 5, dec, repeat around - 36
22. Sc 4, dec, repeat around - 30

Stop - insert the 3 bottom pipe cleaners from each antennae into the top of head, then spread the pipe cleaners out and lay flat against head turning down each end so that it can't poke someone later. I wait until I stuff the head to sew on just because I think its easier.

23. Sc 3, dec, repeat around - 24
24. Sc 2, dec, repeat around - 18 stuff head firmly
25. Sc 1, dec, repeat around - 12
26. Dec around until closed (There is no need to leave a tail since you will be using the tail left from the body to sew the head on.)

Sew the antennae onto head.
Sew eyes onto head.
Sew head to body.
All done!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Electronic Cigarette Case on: September 28, 2010 01:11:20 AM
Ok I'm not sure if this is actually the right place to put this so if not mods please feel free to move it.
I have been working off and on this case for weeks now and I'm pretty proud of it as this is the first time I have taken a sewing idea from concept to pattern to finished item ever!!! Let me explain a little bit. My husband and I both smoke (no not in the house) I know very very bad for you. Anyway we are trying really REALLY hard to quit and we've gotten into these electronic cigarettes. Two different kinds Vapure which gave me a case as part of a deal they were having and Totally Wicked which is what this case is made for. They sell cases on the website but they are $25 each and I really don't have an extra $50 just lying around but I wanted something that I could keep everything in all nice neat and organized. So I decided how I wanted to have it and what I wanted to put in it, drew out an outline for it, cut it out, sewed it together and Wa La! A custom electronic cigarette case. Yea!!! And Bonus I like mine way better than the one they are selling on the website anyway. Way more girly! Smiley

On the left side there are 1 atamizer (which is what produces the vapor), 1 extra mouthpiece, a place for tweezers which I don't have in there yet (the tweezers are for getting the batting in and out of the mouthpiece), 2 extra batteries and 1 electronic cigarette already put together. The right side holds a paper towel on top (it's for cleaning the parts or blowing out the atamizer if it gets clogged) and 2 bottles of e-juice. I'm starting to get into mixing my own concoctions. Smiley The bottle on the left is Chocolate Caramel and the one on the right is Pear yum!!

Oh by the way yes the extra mouthpiece that I have is different from the one on there. At home I usually just drip the juice onto the atamizer but in the car it's kinda hard to do where as with the other one you don't have to you just fill it up and vape away. Smiley
FYI for those people who are not familiar with electronic cigarettes. They give you nicotine (doesn't cause cancer) but none of the other bad stuff like tar and poison and what you are blowing out is just a water vapor. So it's great I get to keep my habit (there by not lose my mind and possibly kill my hubby or kid the next time they make me lose it) but lose the stuff that might kill me or anyone around me. Win win!
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kingdom Hearts Heartless on: July 24, 2010 01:29:43 AM
My stepson got to come out to visit us last month. He's really loves Kingdom Hearts and I wanted to make him something so I decided to make him a Heartless from the Kingdom Hearts game. He's 16 so I wasn't sure whether he would consider himself too old for a stuffie but he loved it. Smiley

Now I get to make my 13 year old daughter one. Smiley

Ok I finally posted the pattern for him here:


I'm so extremely sorry that it has taken me so long to post this pattern. Thanks for your patience. Smiley
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Trixie Pixie on: May 12, 2010 04:33:45 PM
Introducting Trixie the Pillow Pixie! Smiley I bought Peggytoes Pillow Pixie pattern on Etsy last year with the intention of making one for my daughter and one for her friend. Well I finally got around to making her! I'm keeping this one though since I really did her the way I wanted her and not how my daughter would have wanted her. So now I get to make three more! Because my friend asked me to make her one now. Ugh! LoL. She took me about a week and a half to make but I think now that I've gotten the hang of it, it wouldn't take me quite as long next time.

5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cardcaptors Spinal Sun (Suppi) on: May 04, 2010 10:54:33 PM
I've been on here for a while now but this is my first post. I made my daughter a Kerochan using ournew's pattern a while back and so for Christmas (yea I know really should've posted this sooner) she requested a friend for Kero so I made her Suppi. She had found some youtube videos with him in it so I watched them, found some pictures and went to work. Here's the result.  Cheesy She loves him! I made all his legs and his head jointed so that she could pose him however she wanted to. The wings and eyes are made out of felt. It took me a while to get the neck right and then it looked to long so I gave him a name collar to make it look better. Comments welcome. Smiley
