1  Power to the Murse! in Crochet: Completed Projects by kyut530 on: March 12, 2011 07:58:10 PM
So...it's been awhile--I hadn't posted.... Cry Cry I'm sorry
 I've done a few things recently, but I'll just post the most recent thing...

Presenting my Power Symbol Murse---Man Purse...*ahem*

A friend of a friend of mine saw my illusion crochet bag as I was putting the initial finishing touches...and wanted a strap XD
so I made the strap adjustable by putting buttons on the inside and the strap has holes about 4 stitches spaced (if that makes sense)

What do you guys think? This was my first illusion crochet pattern.

2  Re: Ami Pattern Makers, when did you begin designing your own? in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by kyut530 on: March 12, 2011 02:33:56 PM
I started crocheting around  Summer 2008 (ish?). My grandma started me off with embroidery thread...then I learned how to do granny squares in about 2 weeks...then learned about the joys of amigurumi. I think I did my first original design about 4 or 5 months later--was only half intentional...

But anyway, I  still feel like quite a novice, but to get a general idea on how certain maneuvers look, I may look at other patterns, or base part construction by eyeballing other works... and it never hurts to keep up skills by working other patterns before starting your own: it helps get you used to how things may be sized or shaped when factoring yarn and hook choice.

As for writing it out--I'm still kinda stuck, but I try figuring out which is easiest for me to remember/read when I write my patterns out. The first pattern I wrote of my own was Usagi (I think).

  I try to keep my patterns on a thumb drive as a notebook document for quick fixing (depending on the pattern), I find it great for copy-pasting parts that are to be identical (like the first rounds of things)

I'm not sure if this advice is helpful enough but good luck!!

3  Domo holder pouch in Crochet: Completed Projects by kyut530 on: January 02, 2011 07:50:04 PM

Over the past 2 or 3 days I've been working on this Domo-kun pouch. I finished it a few hours ago.
In the middle of the mouth I crocheted it to where there was a slot, with which I had hand-sewn some fabric into a pouch inside it.

C&C welcome

4  Sega Genesis Controller bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by kyut530 on: October 23, 2010 07:31:08 PM
So...I saw this messenger bag made by SpinningNickel (the SNES  mini messenger baghttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360611.0;all) ... and thought it was epic---so I wanted to try one in a smaller scale and made one in homage to my first system--the 16-bit Sega Genesis. The lining is bright orange, and it's both machine- and hand-sewn... The strap was epic long, so i had sewn it closer in at the apex of it.


I think SpinningNickel's is a lot better made (especially at how even the controller sides are)

I just put the flap against my actual controller, and the flap just a little bit larger...I'm guessing maybe by 20%

5  Custom Kirby- Snake and Cyclops in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kyut530 on: August 26, 2010 08:36:10 PM
A guy in my dept. requested a Snake Kirby--as in Metal Gear Solid Snake + Kirby. I looked at the very limited pics so hard to get the beard done right---and I think I figured it out...I wonder if I'll have/want to make it again...I think the pattern may work.

Oh! and the headband does have parts in the back that can bend away from the body.

And another friend in my department had asked for a Cyclops Kirby earlier--he was rather pleased (as were others--that's how I ended up making Snake Kirby)

Patterns came from my brain! And I should try again to write parts of the stuff...

C&C greatly appreciated!   Smiley

6  Pikachu Quilt Completed!!!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by kyut530 on: July 17, 2010 11:21:46 AM
Presenting---the Pikachu Quilt! (my first post on it https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350369.msg4085428#msg4085428)

contains 168 or so granny squares, it's about my armspan (so a little 5ft...i think)---It took me about 2 months to complete (granted, there were a few days that would go by when I didn't touch it Tongue )

What do you guys think?

7  Wire Marble Charms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kyut530 on: July 08, 2010 03:44:56 PM
I made these in about 30 minutes or so after looking long and hard at these marbles I just bought.

I'm all out of wire now--and I want to get more to try making more

Tell me what you think, and any ideas on how to keep the wires from getting too bent out of shape? I used 18 gauge wire, by the way.

8  Granny Square Pikachu Quilt *many photos* in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by kyut530 on: June 10, 2010 04:23:04 PM
I was inspired by this awesome looking quilt--https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314101.msg3613943#msg3613943 by enemyairship---and I want to work on a Pikachu (as the title implies) I think I'm about 1/3 done with making the granny squares (give or take a few). I'm using this as a "summer project"
Saw the "pixel work" on a person's site---I couldn't find that sprite online for some reason (I think I was looking in the wrong places)

What do you all think of it so far?
(note: I don't have all the black granny squares completed for the last few rows on the pic...)

And question: how do you all keep enthused about a long project that takes a while to finish?

*Update* I've been working on a ton of squares, lately. Well, not a ton, but quite a few have been completed since then---I now have about 11 yellow ones and a red one to finish before I begin the sewing phase. The small skeins that are about 2.5 oz. can make about 7-8 squares. Not a bad deal...I think...

--a fraction of the granny squares in the box I used...

*Update # 2*
The rug/quilt is now about 75% complete---complete as in the segments are done. I've finished 3 quadrants (pretty much) and all columns that will go into this. And when I've laid it out, it appears to be about 4' or 5' (well, one quadrant is about the length of my arm, so...)
And once I'm done with this---I'll be ready to make a new plushie--I won't make anything yarn related until I finish this.
Also, tomorrow I'll be teaching a colleague how to crochet :3...at least, how to do the basics. lol

The Second quadrant---aka. the head of pikachu

Update # 3
It is finished!! Took about 2 months for me (granted there were some days where I didn't work on it at all ^_^; )
And I posted the finished product on  Pikachu Quilt Completed!!!!

9  Earbud wire and wire caged die in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kyut530 on: June 10, 2010 04:14:37 PM
So I got the jewelry-making bug....kinda.... And I wanted to try my hand at a wire cage necklace (I wanna figure out how to make one that can open w/o having to bend the wires --maybe next time)

Saw a site with the tutorial on it

So I made this wire cage charm and put a D12 die in it. And for the necklace itself, I had a nice pair of earbuds (skull candy brand) that came with an extender cord---which eventually died on me Sad --I used it well, the internal wires must've snapped. To give it another use--it became like this :

And the best part is that it didn't take long :p

Comments? critique?

10  Prinny d00d!! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kyut530 on: April 22, 2010 07:16:55 AM
I just crocheted this starting a little over a week ago---and I finished it!  However--I haven't yet made a picture of it with the bag, which I finished 2 days ago. Also--I plan to make a better pic of it without the desk stuff background ^^'
