11  Spencer Reid Ami! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kuraikatara on: March 28, 2011 08:12:48 PM
I made a Spencer Reid ami for my partner in the newbie swap. I made a lot of mistakes, and learned quite a bit from it. I'm very proud of the outcome though. If you aren't familiar with him, here's the wiki page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spencer_Reid

Here he is!

He's even got a little holster for his little revolver :3

I wanted to embroider his eyes but since I didn't quite trust myself I did the embroidery on white felt then glue it to the head. I've never really done embroidery before. It was a fun experience. I want to try it out on something bigger next time!

His hair is made of embroidery floss, and next time I'll be sure to get more. If his hair gets mussed it almost looks like he's going bald X-x But I still think it turned out ok. I'm not a very good hairdresser though. XD

I'm a bit of a detail whore XP I even made sure he had mismatched socks, because the actor never wears matching. He says it's bad luck. I unfortunately did not get a picture of them, but I did get a close up of the miniature bag I stitched up out of felt for him.

I even stashed a few little surprises inside!

His shoes were made out of felt as well. That was an interesting problem to figure out. He even has tinsey tiny shoelaces made out of embroidery floss.

I hope you guys like him! I didn't use a pattern, I just kind of winged it. I really need to learn a better way to do clothing. It took me twice as long just to get sleeves on him as it did just to get the body crocheted up!

Finally! I got my pictures uploaded XP

Everything together!

I got this lovely crochet hook roll, and wasted no time in getting all my hooks into it. I'm always losing them all over the place! So this is extra useful.

Two pretty bracelets. You can't see it but the smaller one has tiny blue white and purple stripes. It doesn't quite fit my wrist but it's really pretty! And the knotted bracelet is awesome! I can't imagine how long it took, and the colors are beautiful.

And I got a pretty pair of beaded earrings! Little black and clearish green beads in a figure 8 shape. I managed to get some halfway decent pictures of me wearing them too. I plan to wear them when I go to Canada in June! My boy says they look pretty on me :3

Thanks so much Meg!

13  Kingdom Hearts Inspired Scarf! Ventus/Roxas in Crochet: Completed Projects by kuraikatara on: January 23, 2011 10:27:00 PM
So I was suppose to have this done for my boy for Christmas... whoops! He should at least get it by Valentines Day, if I can just get it shipped off in a timely manner. Good enough time for it too, it's cooooooold in Canada.

It's a Ventus and Roxas inspired scarf!

The emblem to the left is Roxas' thorn zipper pull and to the right is the Mark of Mastery symbol that Ventus (as well as Terra, Aqua, and Eraqus) wears in KH Birth By Sleep.

I need better pictures but all I have is a cell phone. I will take some better ones when I can borrow my mothers camera.

Action shot:

It was cold when I was going home this morning, so I gave it a test run. It's wide enough to cover my whole face! I'd definately make it a bit thinner if I made one for me. It's also probably a good 7 feet long. I wanted it to have 13 pairs of checkerboard squares (Roxas is number 13 of Organization XIII and it's a reccuring them throughout the series) plus it has 13 tassles on each end.

These will give you a good idea of the characters it's based on:

It's actually a forum set (To go above and below each of your posts on sites that have the ability) that I created for him too. The characters look the same for a reason. But I won't spoil that here!

This took me almost 5 months to finish! Jeeze, if I would have just worked on it more rather then procrastinating I probably could have had it done sooner. I took a long time worrying over how to do the emblems. First I wanted to try tunisian crochet, but couldn't find the right hook. Then I thought about just cutting them out of felt and stitching them on, but I really wanted them integrated more. Finally I just decided I'd try my best to do the color changes, made up a "sprite" for each one and went for it. When Roxas' zipper pull didn't quite come out, I just did a chain stitch around it so you could tell what it was actually meant to be. I think it came out pretty nice, and I hope it gets a lot of use once it arrives safely through customs and to my boy.

14  Reversible Pullover Hoodie Help in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by kuraikatara on: September 29, 2010 09:08:17 AM
Ok here's the deal, I'm a total newbie at sewing, with the tiny exception of making a little pillow when I was in middle school. It didn't turnout well either. So, I'm probably absolutely crazy to attempt this, but I want to try!

I am going to attempt to make a reversible hoodie. Now I'm sure I can find a pattern for a hoodie somewhere, but I haven't found a pattern for a reversible one. If anyone could point me in the right direction to find one, that would be great.

Here is what I'm trying to do, snagged the template from DeviantArt by the way, all I did was color these:

It's based on a Transformer double agent named Punch/Counterpunch. There'll be other little details on there but I can paint them on with stencils and fabric paint, if all goes well.

The other thing I need to figure out is what type of material to use. I was thinking polar fleece, or something similar, but I don't want it to be too bulky, but not too thin either. I'd be a rather bad judge of whats warm in this case. The jacket is a gift for my boy in Canada, and I'm from Florida. Drastically different climates! Any tips from you guys would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance guys :3
