21  Re: Get Foxy Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by littlenutbrownsquirrel on: June 20, 2011 03:13:04 PM
I received from portmanteaux today!

This is what I got:

She made me a foxy notebook

With little drawn foxes on each page

And she had her sister draw me a fox as an extra

And! A foxy plushie!

Here he is modeling with my cat, Smudge!

I just love him. And he compliments my couch so nicely! Thanks portmanteaux!

22  Fabric Dollhouse/Sewing Box (lots o pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by littlenutbrownsquirrel on: April 25, 2011 12:30:44 PM
This was a pretty extensive project that I finished a little while ago but I've held off posting cause there were so many pictures to deal with and choose from. I saw this (http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html ) little fabric dollhouse online years ago. And then I found the similar if not same pattern in my One Yard Wonders sewing book. Finally I felt inspired to tackle the project. I increased the size of the original pattern so I could use it for sewing notions and such. Thinking ahead- it would make a great playhouse for a small child one day

23  Crafty Jar Mini Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by littlenutbrownsquirrel on: April 06, 2011 05:11:49 PM
I had been wanting to try one of these jars for a while and after being super inspired by that gorgeous snack jar quilt posted a while ago... I went for it.

Had lots of vintage unused buttons and some really cute pink and red fabrics that I hadn't cut into since forever. So one corner of my craft room got a little jazzing!

24  Babushka's House! Mini Quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by littlenutbrownsquirrel on: February 11, 2011 01:27:48 PM
The end of a long week- topped off with a fire alarm this morning and herding toddlers in 10 degree weather! Time to celebrate with my latest accomplishment:

It's Babushka's House!

Smudge- AKA Catzilla


So I'm a fresh new quilter as of December this year and I made a throw as a gift for Christmas then I got excited and super motivated and started on about 10 different quilt projects. Bad idea. I bit off way too much at one time and got way ahead of myself and super frustrated with a cupcake quilt that I pieced beautifully but trashed during the stippling process. So that project is on hold cause I'm sick of stitch ripping and I decided to take smaller bites. Thus was born my mini quilt fever. This is the first of many and I'm pleased with how it came out. Lesson learned: small projects=more gratifying results for beginners.

25  Robot Baby Mobile (Now with striped robot pattern) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by littlenutbrownsquirrel on: February 06, 2011 03:33:10 PM
Instead of superbowling I decided to craftster..

A great friend of the family just had a baby boy and she had asked me to make a mobile incorporating ROBOTS- his bedroom theme. This is how it turned out:

This one is my favorite:

It was the most crochet pieces I've ever put together. The most detailed work I've done thus far in a crochet project! Super happy with it!

*So since I received a lot of great feedback on this project I wrote up the pattern for the striped robot which seemed to be the favorite of most. This is my first attempt at pattern writing for the public eye...

Striped Robot:
With gray make magic ring
Rnd 1: 6sc in ring
Rnd 2: Inc in each stitch space (12)

Rnd 4: 2sc, inc (24)
Rnd 5-9. 24sc

Switch to green:

26  Crochet Zombie Bear! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by littlenutbrownsquirrel on: January 26, 2011 07:58:14 PM
So I'm a straight up newbie here on craftster and decided to take the leap tonight in order to distract myself from a hefty snow ban parking ticket I found stuck in my car door in the great city of Somerville, MA... although I should've known better.

This is an old friend of mine:

I call him Zombie Bear

I made him for my brother for his 26? 27? birthday... I lose track after a while but it was this past summer. He is by far my most favorite crochet critter that I've made. He brings me joy so I thought he would be significant to share  Cheesy
