41  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Commuter monster, angry mushroom and spiral man on: June 01, 2005 12:21:46 PM
These are my first attempts at making toy thingies, the mushroom was the result of trying to crochet a sphere (w/o a pattern lol), the spiral man i made from this:
but I made a different head, and the stuffed one i did today after seeing Nina's amazing tutorial. Cheesy It ended up being a commuter monster cause i had scraps of pinstripe fabric and thought it would look cute with a tie on it, i might make a man-bag for him too Grin

oooooohhhh that is so cool!!! Smiley. I was just thinking about crocheting myself a rug using loop/fur stitch in the stlye of those psychedelic carpets in 'The Shining', but that might take forever Undecided. Is rug making difficult/expensive/hugley time consuming?

Wow! thats a great idea and those colours look great together, im def gonna have to try making one of those out of doweling or something. Do you know what to do with the edges so that it doesn't fall apart or would it not do that?

wow, i love the front and the back side!
what a neat idea to stuff them with plastic bags,, i am all about reusing/recycling
but is it comfy?
does it make a crinkle noise when you lay on it??

It's surprisingly comfy, and yeah it makes a crinkly noise lol but it's more decorative than practical.

Wow! I love it!  Very cool textures and I really like the black, pink and white color combo.
Did you crochet the motifs and then stitch them on? How?
I think it is a very cool alternative to pillows that are all crocheted.  I'd like to see the other side too please.
The black bits are rows of dc, the pink is just a simple shell edging and I stitched the pieces onto the fabric by hand. I did write down the pattern but that's in my sketchbook which i wont get back for a while yet. Here's the other side:

The backgound is a motif based on a celtic shield (it looked like a wolf to me) printed in silver ink and the stitched bits are of corn dollies.
46  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / House Motif Cushion on: May 14, 2005 04:08:50 AM
I made this cushion for my exam (foundation studies in art and design) which is finally over, PHEW!!!  Cheesy
I'm in Surface Print (basically designing and printing patterns for fashion, interiors etc.),and my exam theme was the environment where I live (in Bridgend, South Wales when I'm not in uni). I printed a repeat based on traditional terraced houses and the red bricks reminded me of crochet shells, so I thought I'd have a go at crocheting the motif:

-the printed design

-the cushion and close up

Was pretty simple to make, and the cushion is stuffed with plastic bags cause I like recycling. Smiley oh and it was intended to look pretty cutsey/kitsch, the other side is more sensible and modern lol. It got commpliments of my class mates but I'm curious to know what crafty people make of it  Huh

Linbtl, that's really cute Cheesy,

attempted making a more open one with petals:

Ch 5, sl st into 1st ch to make ring,
10 sc into ring, sl st to 1st ch, (ch5, 2 sl st) repeat 4 times,
4 sl st, (ch 8, sk 2 st, tr into next, ch 8, sc into top of next 5 ch) repeat 4 times,
(3 sl st, ch 5, dc into top of 5 ch, dc into top of next 5 ch, ch 5, sk 3 st, 3 sl st) repeat 4 times,
(4 sl st, 5 sc, dc into 5 ch, ch 2, sl st into next space, ch 2, dc, 5 sc into next 5 ch, ch 10, sk 7 st, sl st into next st) repeat 4 times, end.

I've gotten pretty anal about writting patterns down as i go along now, so I think im gonna try making a whole load of different ones like this to try and use up all the cheap acrylic I've gotten addicted to buying cause it's on my route to the supermarket...

I was getting stressed with my exam earlier and thought I'd have a go at making something as a distraction, dont know if it's what you're looking for but it made me feel a little calmer Grin:

Ch 5, sl st into 1st ch to make ring,
Ch 5, sl st into next ch, repeat 4 times,
(Ch 8, sc into top of 1st 5 ch petal, ch 8, sl st into ch where 5 ch petal was joined to base ring) repeat 4 times,
(sl st into 2 st of 8 ch petal, 2 sc, hdc, 2 dc, 2 sc over 8 ch, 2 sc, 2 dc, hdc, 2 sc into next 8 ch, sl st last 2 st of that 8 ch) repeat 4 times, end

This is my first post so hope this works *crosses fingers* and I'm more used to UK terms than American (which i used), hope this helps Smiley
