1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Day of the Dead mug warmer on: November 03, 2017 08:26:47 PM
Made for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween swap.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / beaded vintage Halloween cat necklace on: November 03, 2017 08:22:07 PM
I made this for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween swap.

It's based on this image.  https://halloween-fun.net/wp-content/uploads/halloween%20tag/Vintage%20Halloween%20Clipart%20Cat_11.jpg
I made my own pattern and worked it in two-drop peyote stitch.

I had a panic attack about two thirds thru as I was afraid if was beginning to resemble an offensive "black jigaboo" sort of image but one of my student worker suggested the addition of whiskers to fix the image as a cat.  Luckily that did the trick and I was happy with the result.

3  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween tree on: October 23, 2017 01:03:58 AM
Made for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween swap:

With a Pringles tube for a base, I used layers of brown tissue paper and a black pen to create the bark texture.  More cardboard and orange ink was used to create the door.  My attempt at a proper hinge failed and I was reduced to using duct tape but a magnet helps keep it closed.  Then I filled it with candy, of course.  A crocheted Zero helps add to the proper spooky atmosphere of the beloved Nightmare Before Christmas movie!  It was fun to make!

Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you think about Halloween throughout the year, not just in October?  Do you love opening presents?  If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a Mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, we count down the days to Halloween starting with 10/18. You will open day 13 on October the 18th, day 12 on October the 19th and so on until 10/30.  (This is a flexible time schedule however.  Please communicate with your partner.  If you or they need to adhere to a different schedule, that is, of course, okay as long as youve both worked it out beforehand.)
-You must post in this thread before signing up
-A minimum of 13 items, one for each day.
-At least 6 crafted items must be sent, equal to 5 small (Under $10 or under two hours to craft) and 1 medium (Medium = 2 or more hours to craft or $10-$30 dollars)
-Spoiling is okay but do not expect the same in return. If you would like to spoil, please discuss it with your partner!
-You must post in the thread at least once a week (or communicate reason you cannot)
-You must PM both your partner and organizer when you send and receive
-You must post photos in the gallery and if you cant please ask your partner to do so.  We all want to oooh and aaah over the goodies!

Some things to think about:

* I STRONGLY recommend that you have a Pinterest board for this swap, as it helps out your partner greatly. Please keep this updated and have at least 20 items on it. If you do not have a Pinterest board, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (Etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

*If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods you should make this the package that is opened on day 1!

*I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

If you want to participate, fill in information and send to organizer calixita

I made a sleep mask for my 13 Days of Halloween swap partner based on the Creature from the Black Lagoon.  It would have come out much better if I had better basic sewing and/or embroidery skills but I still thought it was kind of cute.
10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / crocheted crow with holiday hats on: October 18, 2016 05:11:37 PM
I made my partner a crow friend for the mini 13 Days of Halloween swap.
Since it was a halloween swap, I also made her a witch's hat.

and a spring hat, so that the crow could stay out longer than Halloween on occasion.

This is the pattern I used for the crow.
