1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fire Flower on: December 22, 2012 07:21:40 PM
This flower is so cool. Not only do you get to have awesome FIRE power, but you get an outfit change too Wink Anyways it took me a day to make this while I was watching movies. I absolutely love the way it turned out. As always Woldreamer's pattern was amazing:http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/08/fireflower.html. Cheesy A good add on to the Mario collection don'tcha think? Wink

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Teacher Pillow (Lot's of Pics) on: October 20, 2012 01:57:08 PM
For the second year in a row I made my sister a late Christmas gift. This time I didn't even make it a Birthday/Christmas Gift like last time: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376720.msg4444680#msg4444680. This time it was a Summer Late-Christmas Gift....Yeah I know...I procrastinate a lot Undecided
It all started with me doodling after I finished my benchmark test. I drew a whole bunch of random things and then I ended up drawing this:

BAM! I realized what I was going to make for Christmas! My sister wants to be teacher , so I thought it would be awesome if I made this for her. I ended up making it during the summer, and surprisingly it only took me 3 days to make Cheesy:

Here's what it looked like when all of the individual squares were finished:

Here's what it looked like when they were all sewed together, and I had done the border:

And here's what it looks like when I sewed on the back and the zipper, but there was no pillow inside:

AND FINALLY here are a close up of the squares:

A pencil

Pretend "Play" Money


The numbers 1,2,3

The letter "M" (for my sisters name) and a mountain, a moon, and a map

Math symbols (Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing)


Shapes (Triangle, circle, square, star, rectangle, and heart)

And (my personal favorite because it turned out so well) A blue Crayon

My sister loved it Grin
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Goomba on: August 17, 2012 02:56:30 PM
You know how in nearly every Mario game the first enemy you see is Goomba? Well...it's supposed to be easy to defeat him right? All you have to do is jump on him.....Well...not me..I somehow manage to either run right into him or completely over-jump the distance Undecided Oh well he's still BRILLIANT! Which is why I decided to make him for my brother's birthday Grin The pattern (http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/06/mario-brothers-goomba.html) was incredibly simple, which is a big plus in my book Wink.
Here he is:

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Super Llama on: August 17, 2012 02:47:14 PM
Throughout the school year, I had slowly collected ideas for my friends birthdays.
One of my friend's birthday is coming up in September, so I reviewed my data: She is absolutely crazy about llamas Cheesy.
But there is one thing she loves even more: Super Llamas Shocked
And so I decided to make her one. I'm incredibly happy on how he turned out. Here's the pattern:https://sites.google.com/site/crochetgoods/home/llama

Here he is in his cape Grin:

And here he is, with his secret identity revealed Shocked :

I didn't crochet the cape because when I tried it, it seemed too bulky for me. What I did was, I cut a rectangle piece of red fabric and sewed all the sides inward so they won't unravel. Then I got the corners of the longer side, crossed them over, and secured them together by wrapping it with yarn. I hope she likes him Smiley
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bowser on: July 23, 2012 04:58:11 PM
I FINALLY MADE HIM!!!! I'm so incredibly happy that "Bowser" is checked off my list Grin! I stumbled on this amazing pattern (http://nanettecrochet.blogspot.com/2011/08/super-mario-bowser.html) a little less than a year ago, but there was always something that made me too busy to make him. Anyways summer came and after six days of crocheting, sewing, and many "small" breaks, Bowser was finally finished Cheesy: (Oh and sorry about the many pictures....I just couldn't stop taking them Cheesy)

I did make some small modifications:
-On the arms I crocheted only until round 19 and then crocheted through both layers.
-I didn't crochet the spikes. Instead I made them out of felt and hot glued them on.
-I did crochet a collar though:
Rnd 1. Sc 6 in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2. Inc around (12)
Rnd 3. *Sc in next sc, Inc* around (18)
Rnd 4. *Sc in next 2 sc, Inc* around (24)
Rnds 5-6. Sc around
Rnd 7. *Sc in next 2 sc, Dec* around (18)
Rnd 8. *Sc in next sc, Dec* around (12)
Rnd 9. Dec around (6) Don't Stuff F/O

I'm SUPER incredibly happy on how this turned out and so is Bowser. Look he's going to say something:

..............Which translates to "Bye!"

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Luigi Sackboy on: June 23, 2012 05:59:20 PM
(Pretend I'm whispering)-Hey...y'all guys..I saw a really cool looking guy hanging out in my backyard. I managed to take a picture of him:

Oh no! He spotted me!

Haha Cheesy! Anyways, back to reality. I found this BRILLIANT Shocked website (http://goldenjellybean.com/about/luigi-sackboy/) that had the most amazing (and adorable) Luigi I had ever seen. It was then and there that I knew I had to make him. Sadly there was more than one moment of frustration for me but in the end, I LOVED HIM Grin.
Here he is:

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ear-flap hat on: May 02, 2012 04:27:28 PM
During the winter my step-dad was frequently outside in the cold. Yes, he did have plenty of jackets and fluffy socks with him but his head and ears were unprotected Shocked. And so for Christmas, I made him this hat from a great pattern:http://dontmakemeover.wordpress.com/2010/08/30/ron-weasley-animal-crackers-hat/
There was a problem to making this though: I had no idea how big my step-dad's head was, so I didn't know how large to make it.
The solution was simple though: I just casually walked in the kitchen with a tape measure, measured his head, and walked out. Simple Wink

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Scrap-Fabric Bag on: May 02, 2012 04:08:40 PM
This was made for my sister for Christmas. (Yes it's been a while) Every time I went to Hancock Fabrics, I couldn't help but get those square bundles of fabric that had amazing patterns, telling myself I'd find projects for them. Those pieces of fabric had been sitting in the crafting corner of my room, waiting, until one day I got them all and sewed this.
Not really caring about the alignment, I rushed it all, going back and forth from the sewing machine to the iron. But I actually really like he crookedness of it all. Even though you can't see it, on the inside, there is a dark maroon fabric. The handle is made up of long strands of yarn braided together. She was really happy when she opened this and was even kind enough to model it for the family Cheesy

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / How to be a Guy in a Mustache on: January 07, 2012 05:23:00 PM
My brother, Jose, often asks for a monocle and a top hat. For classiness of course. Sadly I didn't make him either. But then I saw this wonderful pattern: http://easymakesmehappy.blogspot.com/2011/02/crochet-mustache-pattern.html I had an idea. In my family, mustaches are widely known as powerful things. And when I think of classy things, I always think of this picture: http://static.simpledesktops.com/desktops/2010/08/19/Monocle_gray.png which obviously shows an epic mustache. So I decided to make him a mustache kit.

I found all of these ideas online:

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Squidapus Pillow on: January 07, 2012 04:36:43 PM
Yes, yes, I know this is just a squid, but it sounds cooler calling him a Squidapus, dont'cha think? Anyways, this was my first sewing project as well as my gift to Jesus for Christmas! One day, my brother e-mailed me a pattern to this:http://blogs.philadelphiaweekly.com/style/2009/02/12/fridiy-8-foot-giant-squid-pillow/ and wrote, "You should totally make this! :O" This was on July 10th, 2011.
When I read this I merely smiled, thought what a cool pillow that was, closed it, and went on looking for crochet patterns. Around November, I tried to figure out what to make for Jesus for Christmas and the squid pillow popped into my mind. Knowing this was the perfect gift for him this year, and that he most likely forgot about it, I got two yards of a soft purple fabric, one yard of a nice stripped fabric, got out my mom's sewing machine, and stared at it. "I don't know how to sew", I thought.
Well, luckily, my mom did. She thought me how to use the sewing machine and let me start with my project. Making the legs was the hardest. I often had to re-sew them but in the end, it was worth it. Some of the pillow was hand-sewn and some of it was with the machine but all in all he loved it.
The pillow was pretty big, so I had to wrap it in the Christmas Tree Box Smiley. When he tore off the wrapping paper and saw the box, I exclaimed, "I got you a Christmas tree Cheesy" He laughed, opened the box, and hugged his pillow.
And so ladies and gentlemen I present to you, Squidapus!!!:

Wait a second.....who are you? I don't remember adding a mustache to Squidapus?!!!

Ah there you are!!!!
