31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Video games paintings! on: February 02, 2011 05:50:32 PM
My boyfriend and I are big video games fan so we're always trying to integrate it in our arts/crafts. Here is a the paintings I made in the last couple of months (I really don't paint a lot!)

This is a trio of pixel paintings I made for the OTT Zelda thing from Zelda:Minish Cap sprites. They are painted on small, 4X5 canvas.

This is another trio of pixel paintings I made, this time for the Zelda Swap 2, from A Link to the Past sprites. Now I just need to make a set for myself!

This one has actually been made by my boyfriend. It's a Metal King Slime from the games Dragon Quest.

This is a 8X10 pixel painting of Link. I wish I hadn't made the backgroung like I did, I don't really like it...

I have a plan for a Skull Kid pixel painting, but it's way bigger (75X75 pixels) so I have to find the motivation to throw myself into it!
32  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Makar couch and other stuffies on: February 01, 2011 03:38:10 PM
These are stuffies I made, mainly for swaps:

The Makar couch (my favorite!) for the Weird Stuffie Swap. I modified a pattern from Knitting Mochimochi to look like Makar from Zelda Wind Waker.

This is a Link amigurumi I made as an extra for the Weird Stuffie Swap from a pattern on Craftster from nerdigurumi.

This is a little skeleton from the book Creepy Cute Crochet.

What do you think?
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Link hat and mittens and cable scarf on: February 01, 2011 03:28:10 PM
Here are knitted thing I made recently for swaps.

Simplified Zelda hat and mittens I made for the Zelda Swap. I made the pattern myself, and I was inspired by the "Hanging with my gnomies" hat that won the Advanced Knitting Accesories challenge:

This is the cable scarf for the scarf swap.

I love swaps!

Modification: Here is the grid chart I created for the simplified Link:

34  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first crochet blanket (from 2 years ago) on: January 25, 2011 08:31:32 PM
This is the first ever project I crocheted (it may not have been a wise idea to start with a big project, but... meh... lol!)

On the pattern, it was supposed to have a row of granny squares all around the striped part, but it didn't happen. Because it's the first thing I did in crochet, the first rows are larger than the rest so I would need 7 squares on one end and 8 on the other! And I hate weaving in ends, so I stopped after a quarter of the squares...

So I dug the blanket from my unfinished projects pile and decided it was finished enough to use!

With my super-cool owl friend.

I just love the colour mix! What do you think?
35  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / OTT Miyazaki swap?? on: January 24, 2011 04:21:25 PM
Maybe it was already done, but I want to know if there would be interest for a one tiny thing Miyazaki swap: Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, etc.

What do you think?
36  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Juggling/stress balls for a gift exchange on: January 23, 2011 08:26:31 PM
We did a gift exchange with my friends this Christmas. The theme was that the item we bought/made had to fit with the initials of the persons we picked.

The friend I picked has J.V. for initials and she is always stressed about school and evrything. So I decided to knit her some juggling balls (for the "J") but transform them in stress balls. I also decided to put different "fillings" for the stress balls so it would justify the idea of having three balls!

Here are the three stress balls I made. The big orange one has a foam ball in it, the blue one has poly-fill and the purple one has a balloon with flour. Because of the balloon, I couldn't put safety eyes on the ball and risk having a flour explosion. So I decided to embroider eyes and add a mustache, just for fun!

Here is a better view of the mustache. I think he looks like the Pringles guy Tongue

And at the end, I put the juggling/stress balls in a mini-suitcase ("valise" in French) and added some lavender stress relief body cream and candy. She loved the package!
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Last minute Christmas knitting (IMG heavy) on: January 23, 2011 08:13:53 PM
At the beginning of december, I decided to make socks for my two cousins. At the middle of december, I decided to knit something for my whole family on my father's side: the two cousins, three aunts, another cousin (the only guy) and my grandma. Sometimes, people are crazy and that was one of my crazy moments!

So here's my last minute Christmas knitting.

My mother helped me, so she did the scarf for my grandmother. It's not really clear on the picture, but it has cables on it.

These are the socks I made for my two cousins.

This is a cowl I made for one of my aunts.

This is a scarf I made for another of my aunts, who is also my godmother. As you can see, this one is crocheted.

Another scarf for my cousin (as I said, the only guy). The color is really dark grey, not as light as it looks here...

And here is the whole bunch. The last scarf, for my third aunt, is missing, I finished the evening before the Christmas supper!

They all seemed to love what I made for them, it was worth the stress!
38  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mofumafu pig costume!! on: January 12, 2011 09:10:05 AM
My boyfriend is a big fan of Monster Hunter and I'm a big fan of the pig in Monster Hunter! For those who don't know, in the game, the main character has a pet pig that you can disguise in different costumes. The rest of the game is really manly, but this part is totally cute Tongue !

One of the pig's costume is a repica of the main character's starting costume, which is a winter kit that I find absolutely adorable. I had a pig that looked like the one in the game, so I decided to make him a mofumafu kit!

I patterned it myself, making it as I went along. First, I did the suit itself, starting at the tail. What you don't see here is that it's open on the underside. I added buttons, so it's an interchangeable outfit.

After, I did the hood and the edges of the legs, with fuzzy yarn and purl stitches. I did the little blanket separately and stitched it to the suit. The last part is the tail cover, which is the only part that was crocheted.

Here is another photo, from the top. You can see the blanket and tail cover better on this one.

I'm planning on doing more outfits for my pig from the ones in the game!
39  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Final Fantasy 1 hand towel on: January 12, 2011 08:53:26 AM
As the title says, I made a Final Fantasy 1 hand towel Tongue

My boyfriend is a fan of retro games and he got the idea, because I was searching a concept to use my newly acquired cross-stitching abilities.

Here is the whole thing.

Here is a detail of the left side. As you can see a little bit, I messed up the first character, because I handn't figured out the importance of doing all the stitches the same way... But I learned from my mistakes! Smiley

Detail of the right side.

It's placed proudly in my bathroom and I make sure people only dry their hands with the part that is not cross-stitched! Tongue
40  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sweater, scarf, caplet and socks!!! on: November 16, 2010 06:54:13 AM
As I often do, I post in bulk. Here are a couple of knitting projetcts I did in the last months.

Here is a gray sweater I made from a pattern called "Cadet Sublime" with Sublime yarn. The yarn is really soft and looks luxurious. The pattern is, by far, the most complicated I ever did, with the V's and decreasing while following the V's pattern.

This is a scarf I made from Woolly Bully yarn. It is the coolest yarn I ever worked with. It changes colour as you go along and it changes size too. It is done in simple 1 knit, 1 purl, to show the yarn! I'm sorry about the blurry pic, it's the only one I have...

This is a simple caplet I made from a pattern from the book "Gifted". It is a little bit too short, but still cute!

And last but not least, a pair of socks with super big yarn... I can't remember the name! I found the pattern with the yarn. I'm not thrilled with the way the heel is done, but it doesn't matter, these socks are so comfy!
