1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia on: April 03, 2013 04:20:14 PM
After replaying this game and watching the anime they made of it I decided I needed my very own Lloyd! He is a heavily modified version of about 4 different basic doll patterns. Cheesy  His hair was a pain since it is so spiky. Why can't japanese characters have easier to make hair! Angry

His double sword belts were made from felt.

you can even see that I put his cruxis crystal on his hand and he has his little scarf tail things too.

I'm thinking of making him some swords at some point. Not sure if I should go for felt or clay.

What do you think?
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My TARDIS Magnet on: July 31, 2012 06:09:13 AM
Here is a TARDIS magnet I made the other day for a friend whom is also a big fan of Dr. Who. I had all this dark blue Premo clay laying around and it was begging to be made into a TARDIS. I think I am going to have to make another one for myself. I haven't made many things with clay yet, and I don't have alot of money to spend on crazy clay tools and glazes and I am horrible at drawing (therefore I find my clay creations don't turn out the proper size or shape Tongue ) but I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.  Smiley

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Zack the zombie! on: September 27, 2011 01:51:04 PM
Meet Zack the zombie! I made him for Spookypooky in the last one tiny stuffie swap. She wanted something for halloween and so he was born...or died... you know what I mean  Roll Eyes

As you can see he's in rough shape, missing an arm, most of his hair and almost one eye (it's still dangling!  Wink ). He also has a bum foot and is a messy eater (look at how bloody his hand is and his mouth!  Cheesy ) His favorite snack is brains of course so I made him a little brain snack (it's there on the ground in front of him) to take with him on his trip to his new home.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first hats! (several pictures) on: September 27, 2011 01:39:54 PM
Here are a bunch of my first hats, Two are for me and two went to my brother and his girlfriend as gifts. The fifth one went to my partner in a swap.  Smiley

My favorite of the bunch. I just love the pattern, the colors of the yarn and the way the colors changed.  Made with bernat mosiac yarn and the divine hat pattern found here http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=10

This is a 50/50 cotton/linen light grey yarn that I used to make a summer bucket style hat. I added cream ribbon and tied it in a bow and scalloped the brim. I used several patterns to put together this hat.

This is the hat I made for my brother. He wanted a "guy" hat  Cool so I thought black beanie with a few white stripes.

Here is the hat I made for my brothers girlfriend. She likes girly things so I thought a pink, purple and light blue striped hat would be perfect.  Wink I had less blue then the other colors so I made those stripes thinner which I think worked out well. I added a pink and blue double strand edging to the bottom to finish it off.

The hat I made for my partner in the dresden files swap. A dark grey with light grey flecks using a pattern found in a book that I can't remember the name of.  Tongue  Huh I added the red and grey circle applique to the one side to add some color. It's a nice fall/spring hat since it is a more open pattern with a sort of scalloped design which left spaces between the clusters.

5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Sakura tree stuffie! on: September 20, 2011 11:39:41 AM
I made this tree from Ana Paula Rimoli's pattern in Amigurumi Toy Box. After I made it I decided it needed something different and I decided to make it a flowering tree. I had some thin light pink yarn and so the cherry blossoms were created and added to the tree. I think she turned out really cute.  Smiley

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / felted purse - my first attempt at felting! on: July 27, 2011 01:13:22 PM
I bought some wool yarn for really cheap and decided to try felting. I made this purse up myself and then used a pattern to crochet the flower on the side. I think the flower provides a neat contrast between felted and regular crochet. I felted this the old fashioned way with a bucket of warm water and my hands (since the washing machine is old and does its own thing). It didn't get quite as roughed up as I was hoping but for my first try I am proud of it. What do you think?

The purple stripes in the middle is a little hard to see but they look brighter in better lighting.

A close up of the flower, I really like how the flower turned out. The purple goes nice with the grey and the green at the top is sort of supposed to be like the leaves or stem of the flower. The purse closure is just a loop and a crocheted button.
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Ivan the Giant Isopod!! on: July 27, 2011 12:58:53 PM
I made him for Suereal in the OT stuffie swap round 6. I used felt for his shell and claws. He has 12 legs in all and 3 parts to his tail like lobsters do. Giant Isopods are these creepy alien cockroach/lobster creatures that live in the deep ocean. I saw a video a few years back on youtube of them and when Suereal said she liked rare creatures and also liked squids and cryptozoology so this is what I came up with. I decided to name him Ivan Grin

I think he looks like an isopod, just google them if your haven't heard of them before, they really are a strange creature.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / BBC Show swap on: July 01, 2011 08:03:24 AM
I just thought of a neat idea, how about a swap based on all the awesome BBC shows that are out there. This means shows like Dr. Who, Merlin, Torchwood, Sherlock, Being Human, ect. I know there are heaps of obsessed fans for the awesome shows that the BBC makes. I think it would make a great and varied swap.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A Dr. Who swap? on: June 30, 2011 10:57:52 AM
Is anyone interested in a Dr. Who swap of some kind? It's the hiatus between the two parts of the season and after the last episode and all the secret of river song, I would love some dr. who awesomeness. I don't know anything about organising I was just wondering if there way interest. A medium sized to small swap would be nice, I find it harder to craft in the summer months sine I want to enjoy the nice weather! So anyone interested in this idea? It doesn't look like there has been one in a little while.
10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The hero of time on: June 24, 2011 05:23:17 PM
I know there are so many people that have made Link but I just had to share mine! I made him up myself without any patterns. I think I must have made his hat at least 3 times trying to make it look cool. He's about 30cm high when sitting. The master sword and hylian shield I made out of felt. He's also got a little gauntlet to protect his sword arm. I'm so proud of him!  Smiley

I remembered to keep him left handed too! I'm such a zelda nerd  Roll Eyes

I just have to say that the felt shield took forever! All these small little odd shaped pieces that I had to try and cut out and I suck at drawing so the shapes are not straight or sized properly at all...

What do you think? Is he good enough to save the princess and the land of hyrule from ganonforf's evil?
