11  Re: Baby Monsters! Very basic amigurumi and tutorial to get you started! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: September 04, 2010 12:57:52 PM
Okeydokey. Here's mine. Except I am lazy and I don't like to sew pieces together. So on the last round I crocheted in the back loops only, then decreased til I had 6sts and sewed together. It makes a nice little base for him to sit. My 3yo insisted on using the nose so I left the mouth off.

12  Things that fly in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: September 04, 2010 12:30:54 PM
I made this airplane for my 3yo. He's disappointed because the propeller doesn't actually turn  Undecided And he wanted red, but I didn't have any red yarn. The pattern is from Ana Paula Rimoli's "Amigurumi Two!" I'm sure it isn't quite right because he kept running off with it whenever I set it down and unraveling a bunch of stitches, lol

I totally staged that picture, BTW. Snuck in his room while he was napping and stuck it under his arm.

For some reason, I'm drawn to making birds. (here is the other one I posted today) I think this is the best bird pattern I've run across, although I made a few changes. It's the bluebird pattern from "Super-Super Cute Crochet" by Brigitte Read. Obviously, I made mine a robin because I miss the robins back home in IL. There aren't any here in CO! Plenty of sparrows, pigeons, and love doves, but no robins. I changed the head angle because I liked her sitting up more. The original would had the whole belly facing down with the head completely on the brown, and when I was playing around with arranging all the pieces, I just liked this better. I also reduced the number of stitches in the head because it would've been way ginormous. Interestingly, the way I made it looks like the picture in the book. The pattern also didn't show you how to make that little dip in the tail, it just had treble crochet all the way across, but the picture shows the dip. So I did hdc for the middle 2 stitches and it turned out alright.
OK, 'nuff gabbing. Pictures.

3yo takes her for a ride in the beach patrol truck.

Love the posable wings!

13  A bird for Grandma in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: September 04, 2010 12:12:16 PM
I made this bird for my grandma, who taught me to crochet at the beginning of the year. I made it right before we moved across the country in June. She passed away of cancer on August 17th. I did make it back in time to say goodbye, but I had to get home and she died while I was traveling home, so I wasn't able to attend her funeral. But I asked my mom to get this bluebird from her house and hang it in the church so I was there in spirit.

I love that her head is bigger than her body.

The pattern is from "Amigurumi Two!" by Ana Paula Rimoli. It's supposed to be part of a mobile, but I just made the big one

Um... was it really necessary to name names and point out feedback? Could you not have simply asked for an angel? I am really embarrassed about the situation as it is, and it isn't like I'm a complete flake...
Anyway, here are pics
K in his hat (he thinks he's smiling). I love the hats! I guess I should have put it on straighter, haha.

Co won't keep hats on right now, but he will when his noggin gets cold. Please excuse the messy shirt, we'd just gotten home from Red Robin and the kid DEVOURED the campfire sauce. Used the pacifier like a spoon.

K with the skull bag, he keeps Hot Wheels cars in it. And this is a bad picture of the shirt. I remember when we were talking, I mentioned stenciling and Norah said something like, "I wish I could stencil." Well, she did an EXCELLENT job, we love this shirt! He'd grown out of all his ribcage shirts.

I couldn't get a good picture of these pants either. Co was NUTS, running around and just screaming his head off for no reason. He stopped long enough to pick up a ball, and I took a picture. The fabric is black and yellow striped knit with skulls on it. I can't wait til it's not a billion degrees out so he can wear them!

And these awesome bandanna pants, too!

Thank you thank you, NorahKate!
And here's a teaser:

17  His name is Uggles in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: April 12, 2010 09:27:14 AM
...but they call him Ugly.

Poor little fellow.

He was supposed to be an owl.

But my 3yo chose the colors, I can't sew pieces together worth anything, I THOUGHT I bought eyes that would flatter him, but aforementioned 3yo must have thrown them out of the cart, and I can't follow a pattern without pictures on tiny pieces like the wings, so I "winged" them!

I posted him on facebook and got two comments: one said the flowers were pretty, the other asked if it was a hackey sack with wings.

19  Just a ball (w/bonus turtle) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by dooney on: March 18, 2010 07:57:52 AM
I just started crocheting last Saturday & I made a turtle for my first project, which I gave to my 3yo. I wanted to practice a bit more, as well as make something my 1yo would appreciate. I used the Gabu pattern from Roxycraft to make him a ball (just left off the eyes and antennae), which I stuffed with dried pinto beans. I added some more decreases at the bottom instead of finishing off with 12 stitches and sewing closed. Those extra decreases made sort of big holes, so I don't leave him alone with it, but he loves to throw it and squish it.

on the bookshelf

Of course, the 3yo steals it.

Crocodile likes it too.

Oh yeah, here's my turtle, also posted in the turtle-along post

20  Valentine's Day is not just for the girls! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: February 15, 2010 03:34:52 PM
I have no little girls to craft for, so when I saw these non-girly handkerchiefs at Hobby Lobby, they HAD to be pants.

These pics are post-wearing because I finished up like five minutes after we needed to leave for church.

These things are insanely long.

Applique from scraps and "MINE" from my grandma's embroidery machine

I didn't stitch around it (yet) bc there wasn't time.

The end!
