Cute! ...How did you make it? It looks like felt (?)

Tis indeed a felt shuttle, the upper side of the wings and body ,the whole of the nosecone and the engines are white felt with the underside of the nosecone sort of dyed black with the aid of a permanent marker, the rest of the underside is black felt. The windows are also done with the trusty marker. Hope that helps!

Holy crap that's impressive

Holy crap, thank you for your comment!!

I love it, but I don't think it would fair well on reentry  Wink

kjlutz, forget reentry, I don't think it would survive launch. Unless it was inside the pocket of an astronaut who was safely tucked inside the real space shuttle...

As you may have already guessed, my contribution to the little tiny challenge is a minature space shuttle.

Here is the view of it in orbit just before beginning its pitch manoeuvre to allow checks on the heat tiles to be made:

You might be able to see on the left wing the American flag and the name of the shuttle (Atlantis) and on the right wing the NASA logo.

And here is the view halfway through the manoeuvre of the underside of the shuttle:

Okay, enough with the jargon. Now for the major pic spamming. Apologies if your computer freezes up or explodes or anything equally dramatic.

If you can't read what it says, and frankly you deserve a medal or a cookie if you can, the black fuzzy writing on the side says United States

On this side, it says Atlantis

View of the engines and tail

And finally:

the proof of its size: 2 inch height, 2 inch wingspan.

Sadly these beautiful machines and the era of spaceflight that went with them will finish this September.

I love the fact that they are poseable. How did you keep the wires from poking through the fabric?

The wire ends are made into loops and the stray ends twisted around the main wire as close as possible before being trimmed. And I think a hefty dose of luck helped the wires from not poking through the monkeys. Smiley
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Voodoo Doll Pincushion on: February 06, 2010 02:22:36 PM

My first completed crochet project! Thanks to one of my friends (you know who you are) who suggested a voodoo doll would make a great pincushion. Here is the proof.
This cheery soul was made using the basic head and body patterns from the book Creepy Cute Crochet. I was originally going to unravel him after making him since I couldn't think of anything that he could be, being purple and all that. Then I changed my mind after realising how cute he was.

A nice view of the voodoo doll's back/side/backside showing some more of the stitching detail.

These two are my current favourite monkeys - the one on the left is called Zaza, and the one on the right is called Fergus. Don't they make a cute couple?
Both are made from fluffy socks - the type that sometimes get called lounge socks in the likes of Tesco or other supermarkets - and both are fully poseable thanks to the addition of wires in their tails and limbs.

Since Zaza is such a camera hog, here's an individual shot of him:

And because Fergus got a bit jealous when I started taking photies of Zaza on his own, here's his own individual close up :

Steve is a good name for the crane. It's the same as my Tang Soo Do instructor's name. Maybe your Steve could be a black belt in high speed pecking. Although, if your new neighbours are nice then he won't get much practice in...

I can't decide if the elephant or the hippo is the cutest. I love elephants, and your elephant is a particularly adorable elephant. But I also love hippos, and that hippo is a particularly adorable hippo. Arrgh! Decisions, decisions. Ah well, they both win.

They are really sweet. Where did you get all that lovely, lovely fabric from?

What cute fabric!! And more importantly, what a cute monster!! Give him a cookie from me, maybe it will cheer him up. Cheesy And if he doesn't want the cookie, it's all yours!

Those monkeys are extremely adorable, especially Fe-Fe. The combination of colours in the sock work really well. I know someone who would just love to take all those home with her...
