1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Lolita Bunny for my neice! on: December 10, 2011 11:42:42 AM
This is a Lolita Bunny I've been working on. Right now she has a short dress because I still have more to go.
I got this faux fur fuzzy yarn from a cousin-in-law and had no idea what I could ever use it for. then maybe 6 months later this cute little bunny popped in my head. She is really soft, and I love her ears!

And here is her deviant page: http://achgfd.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4ipel0
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Batman! I am the night... on: December 10, 2011 11:38:21 AM
This is the Batman I made for my nephew. I am still working on the pattern which I may list for sale in my etsy shop. Or... maybe I will just make Batmans.
I really like how he turned out. He's actually quite large and very hugable. His cape is just a sheet of felt because I liked that darker color rather than the black yarn. Plus it's really light and moves much easier (and of course was faster!).
The bat symbol still amazes me how well it came out. What I did was trace the bat symbol from my iTouch (small screens ftw) on regular printing paper. Then I put that on the sticky back of this really nice felt. It had glue on one side. Then I cut around the paper and peeled off the paper, put it on the Yellow oval, and then had sown everything together!
Phew! That was work.

I don't know what he's doing in those last two pictures. I think he was tired of the photoshoot and his Bruce Wayne Playboy attitude came out.

Here's his deviant art page: http://achgfd.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4ipe07
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Portal Test Signs on: September 25, 2011 10:38:28 AM
I've been attempting this project for a few weeks, then my cousin came over who works in a print shop and gave me some pointers. I think it looks a lot better.
I've always been interested in those test signs that appear before each level in portal. They were such a neat idea to let you know whats coming up! I wanted to make some to hang on my wall and paint them on a cavas, but how to get the perfect shape? Well... first I edited the image and printed them on regular paper. The first painting from that came out well, but I couldn't use the stencil again. So I looked up some videos and saw how graffiti artists make their stencils. I found these old plastic resume covers and cut it from that. But the paint would just roll under it. So I got a roller! That helped this a lot. They are still rough around the edges- but! I think that adds to the post-apocolyptic feeling that you get from Portal 2.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I haven't posted in a while, but I learned how to crochet hats! on: September 09, 2011 10:59:13 PM
I wanted to learn some new crochet things. I made a scarf for my friend a while back and wanted to make a hat to match it. I also had a new nephew this year and wanted to make him a hat too!
first hat I made was for a baby 3 months- 6 months. It ended up being smaller, but I had a lot of fun. He couldn't wear it, so I made him another one that was up to 3 years! That one fit his fat head. lol.

Then I made one for my friend lisa to go with her scarf that I made for her a while ago. I tried doing this weird brim that you only go in the front loops until it curls on itself. I didn't quite like the whole thing, so I did half-way. I like how it curls, but I really have to figure out edgings. Its supposed to be S/M but it fits a little big. Someday it will be just right. ^_^

Overall, Crafster. Its good to be back. I missed you guys!
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Super Pickle? on: December 06, 2010 03:18:44 PM
Does anybody remember Super Pickle?
My older sister loved him to death. She's having a hard year so I thought for christmas I could make her a super Pickle for her 3 year old little boy. Problem is... Not quite sure how to go about Crocheting a giant pickle. Any Thoughts?

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / moogle keychain! on: December 03, 2010 02:32:57 PM
I love this little moggle! He's so adorable! I made it for my friend stir who wanted it for his wife. Which is loved. The wings really stumped me because he's so small, I couldn't figure out how to crochet them. Instead I made them out of felt and sowed them on. I actually like the way they look. Its very adorable!


7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Going from Crochet to Knit... good patterns? on: November 02, 2010 07:10:42 PM
I really want some wrist warmers with fingers (not full). I keep seeing them in the store but refused to buy it when I know I could probably make it. I tried the crochet patterns and I'm never satisfied. They seem to blocky, or just not right.
I guess my question is... Would anybody have a nice easy knit pattern? I learned a long time ago- just need a refresh. So something easy to understand. Or do you think Crochet would still be better?

Thanks for the help guys!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Granny Square Catastrophy! on: October 04, 2010 05:04:14 PM
Somehow I can make hats, scarves, and little amiguri animals but this whole 'double crochet in a pocket' thing is driving me crazy. I somehow get the middle circle done but going from there I am lost. >_< I'm a visual learner and have tried the videos on youtube but they don't show the exact loop they put stuff in (mostly just see peoples hands). Does anyone have an hints or help? Its frustrating that the easiest and most basic thing in crochet is the one I'm struggling with.

grrrrr! Okay frustration vented... thanks for the help
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / MOOGLE! on: October 03, 2010 07:35:00 PM
I made this moogle for a friend. She's really cute and little. I made the pom pom out of... well a pompom crazy glued to a pipe cleaner.

Here is him making a sexy pose

Here is him from the front.

And this is the back! I made the wings out of felt and sowed them on.
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Crafting Block! grrr on: September 20, 2010 09:51:32 PM
I just opened my first shop and made my first sale! Sad He didn't leave me any feed back and I don't even know if he received or enjoyed his gift. I am a very needy person and must have constant feedback! (Cause I am crazy!!!??!)
But since then I have gotten crafting block. I work in many different mediums- paper, lego, jewelry, crochet- mostly video game themed.

Now I can't think of what to add on that I haven't already done before. Do I need to have that one thing that I'm known for? That one stand out craft- or do you think having a broad range is better for the shop? I'm hoping that discussing it more will get the creative juices flowing again!

Thanks for the help guys!
