1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Lucky Leprechaun on: March 15, 2010 12:18:09 PM
Lucky Leprechaun

My little niece made a wish for a Leprechaun to bring her luck. 
And wouldn't you know it...
Look who I found hiding in the pear tree this morning.   

Say hello, Seamus.

Seamus is a wee one.  He only stands 8" tall (including his hat).

To make Seamus, I modified the Sugar n' Cream - Lucky Leprechaun free pattern that I found here: http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=4798

Thanks for looking!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Weenie Dog Valentine <3

I made this as a Valentine for my 6 year old niece.  Her favorite color is pink, hence the pink body. Wink  The free Amigurumi Wiener Dog pattern is from www.lionbrand.com.  The pattern for the tiny crochet heart on his back is from this blog:  www.kundhi.com/blog/2010/01/22/tiny-crochet-heart-pattern

Thanks for looking!

Happy Valentine's!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / What the french, toast!? Embroidered Flour Sack Towel on: January 26, 2010 06:20:39 PM
I always get a giggle out of this Orbit gum commercial:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEJJUGJZxpU
Inspired by this commercial, I came up with this design.

It's nothing fancy or too complicated, just a few back stitches and french knots on a flour sack towel.
But, I'm pretty pleased with it.
(Except, I think I botched the punctuation.  !? or ?!  meh...It's a kitchen towel. Roll Eyes  Cheesy)
Anyway, my sister's birthday is coming up and I think she'll get a kick out of it too.

Thanks for taking a look!
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crocheted Mermaid Doll w/ link to free pattern on: January 25, 2010 10:43:51 AM
Crocheted Mermaid Doll

Just before Christmas my 6 year old niece convinced me that she needed a mermaid doll. Cheesy
I was happy to see her so absolutely excited when she opened her handmade gift on Christmas morning.

To make this doll (approx. 7 1/2" tall), I modified the original ornament sized pattern by using worsted weight acrylic yarn and an H(5.0mm) hook.  Her eyes are 9mm safety eyes.  Each spiral lock and strand of hair is individually rooted in the stitches of her head. The hair was the most time consuming part of this project but, I thought she deserved a full, luxurious mane of hair befitting a mermaid. Wink

In case you have a little one in need of a mermaid doll, here is a link to the free pattern.
