21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pinhead on: February 16, 2014 09:53:46 PM
Last year I was on a Hellraiser kick for a couple of months.  I watched all the movies (although I only recommend the first 2) in sequence and even developed a very disturbing crush on Pinhead.  I still can't explain that one!  Anyway, this is the result of my short-lived obsession.  I entered him in the Summer Nerd Games, but neglected to give him his own topic post.

Thanks for looking!
22  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Octo-puss on: February 09, 2014 09:57:08 AM
Hey all!
After making the Merbunny, I had this idea that I was going to make all sorts of land/sea creature hybrids.  Unfortunately, I only got as far as this second one.  I made this fella last summer.  Posting him does have me thinking of picking this series back up.  Maybe even actually doing my own patterns for them.   Grin  Anyway, the pattern for this one is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/octopussy-3  This is NOT my pattern, I'm just sharing in case someone would like to make their own octopuss Smiley

Oh, I did eventually add the suction cup parts with some fabric puff paint, but I forgot to take pictures. Doh!

23  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Hobbit hole necklace on: February 09, 2014 09:06:28 AM
Hey folks!
I recently made this necklace for My_RubySlippers, in the OT literary thing and a used paperback swap.  It's Bilbo Baggins' Hobbit hole from the Lord of the Rings / Hobbit movies.  I tried my hand at poly clay for the first time about a year ago, and it became obvious to me that this was a tricky medium at which I had zero talent.  So, I watched a bunch of tutorials on youtube to see if I could learn a few tricks.  Although I still have a looong way to go to reach the level of "skilled", I'm quite happy with the progress that I made with this piece.  It was inspired by these https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=361065.0#axzz2sqJVTm2J Fairy doors by azreno, but of course not nearly as good.   Wink

24  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Merbunny on: January 30, 2014 06:05:18 PM
So, I have a ton of projects from last year that I uploaded to my picture hosting, but never actually created posts for.  It's been my New Year's resolution to remedy the situation (a late start already! Surprise, surprise!)  Anyway, I made this fish-slash-rabbit combo as part of a crochet-a-long. It is not my pattern, but here's the link if you want to make your own merbunny http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/misfit-toys-christmas-ornaments.  Only, I couldn't follow the directions for the fan part of the tail, so I just improvised that part.  I couldn't resist adding some plastic pearls and other little lovely accessories.  I guess it's that mermaid loving little girl I used to be, peaking out for a spell.

Thanks for checking it out!
25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Nightmare Before Christmas trinket box on: January 29, 2014 04:16:09 PM
I made this little jewelry/trinket box quite a waaay back for the Tim Burton swap.  I'm just a tad late posting  Embarrassed
Ahh well.  The image used is NOT my original art.  For shame, I know, but I used the image because my partner had it on her Pinterest with emphatic notes about how much she loved it, so I thought it would be perfect.  Pinterest links it back to invaderzim91 on deviantart.com, who has apparently deactivated their account.  Please, if anyone knows an active account or website that I can link this to in order to give proper credit let me know.  Thanks.

Anyway, back to the project. I transferred the image using the good old graphite on one side of the paper and trace technique, then simply painted to the best of my ability.  Sad, but true.  Afterward, I realized the bottom swirly is all wrong. Whoops! Lastly, I added a little felt liner on the bottom and on the inside. Viola!  A cute little trinket box that I kinda wanted to keep.  I hope my partner found some use for it!

I guess the inside could have used a little something, but it's hard crafting with a hyper active 2 year old running around.  Shocked
26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Pincushion Queen on: January 29, 2014 03:47:20 PM
So, I made this doll for my partner in the Tim Burton swap a looong time ago, but I was just realizing how horribly long it's been since I posted any projects.  As a result I have a lot of unposted projects that I hope to be getting to in the next few weeks.  Anyway, She is mostly crochet, but I wanted to do something a little different, step outside my comfort zone a tad. He arms and legs are chenille stems with pony beads - yes, very sophisticated! Lol!  I did the details with felt and embroidery thread. I hope my partner is enjoying her!

27  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / A Nessie hatchling on: May 02, 2013 07:28:27 PM
I made this amigurumi for my partner in the One Tiny Monster Swap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421152.0#axzz2SBvC5TD7) last month.  The crafted item had to be 3 dimensional, and no larger than 4 inches.  I had a hard time making it small enough to include the traditional long neck and still cute and baby-like, so I decided that sea/loch monsters are most likely hatched with short necks and then undergo a neck growth spurt in their early years. Wink  Anyway, on to pics.

Thanks for looking!

Anyone interested?  I know there have been a bunch of Tim Burton swaps, but they were all before I joined Craftster.  Here are some links to the last few swap galleries.

sorry, couldn't figure out how to make a proper hyperlink  Embarrassed

29  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / February's ATCs on: March 20, 2013 08:40:09 PM
I can't believe I'm in my sixth month of ATC swapping!  The time has flown ridiculously!  Anyway, I'm still loving it!

These are the ATCs that I made for the ongoing swap.

(sorry for the blurry pic!)

Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoyed them.  Smiley
30  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bullfrog (with free pattern link) on: March 20, 2013 10:10:02 AM
Hey everyone!

I made this crochet bullfrog for my two-year-old as a gift for the Spring equinox.  I had received a knit frog in a swap, & he fell in love with it, but as he is destructive, and I treasure my handmade gifts, I didn't really let him play with it.  So I decided to crochet him his own friend.

I originally made the back leg and foot as one long piece that got thinner at the knee and ankle, but I couldn't really fold the legs up too well, even with wire in it.  So, I decided to make the leg in three pieces.  I'm so glad I did because it looks much better!  Sorry I don't have before picks, but here he is all finished up.

If you'd like to make your own bullfrog, I posted a free pattern on my blog!
