1  Re: 2017 DeStash Along in Craftalongs by RedheadWithThread on: November 25, 2017 10:39:08 PM
These slippers were made with 75% stash. The only yarn that was a new purchase was the gold for the Gryffindor slippers.

CLM, I love that house bag! So cute and fun!

UTM, I love those pinatas! The color combos are awesome. I especially like the green/orange one.

I made some Harry Potter House Pride slippers for my sister and myself. Credit for the idea goes to Pinkleo who made some Gryffindor Pride slippers several years ago and my sister really loved them. I finally bought the book earlier this month and made these.

3  Harry Potter House Pride Slippers (Gryffindor & Slytherin) in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: November 25, 2017 10:31:39 PM
First, I have to give credit to Pinkleo for giving me this idea several years ago when she posted her Gryffindor House Pride Slippers, which my sister coveted.
I finally remembered them earlier this month and ordered the book (Vanna's Favorite Crochet Gifts) then made my sister's slippers in her House colors:

And since I needed slippers, too, I made myself a pair in my House colors:

Yarn used:
Gryffindor - Caron Pound of Yarn in Scarlet and Mainstays in Gold (this is a new yarn from Walmart that is actually pretty soft for an acrylic)
Slytherin - Caron Pound of Yarn in Kelly Green (my favorite color from them) and Crafter's Secret in Passport (Hobby Lobby)

Soon I hope to make pairs in Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff House colors. I just have to ask for the shoe sizes of the friends who belong to those Houses Smiley

Sock monkey hat for my dentist's assistant:

I crocheted it following this pattern from RepeatCrafterMe.

There's a bit of a story behind it: I had an appointment a few days before Halloween and she asked if I was ready for Halloween. I told I was mostly ready and she very excitedly told me that she was very ready and that she had bought a sock monkey onesie costume that she had found on Amazon, saying she has a sock monkey obsession. I told her that I had a crochet pattern for a sock monkey hat and that I could make her one. She said that she'd love that, then said that no, she was just joking that I didn't have to do that for her.
I crocheted the hat anyway and took it with me to my appointment yesterday. She was so happy that while they were waiting for my mouth to numb, she took it around to show all of her coworkers saying "Look what my sweet patient made for me!"

Sometimes I forget how other people see the things I make. I thought it was sort of lack-luster and boring (I make hats a lot) but she thought it was the best thing ever.

5  Pint-sized Pirate in CHALLENGE 121 ENTRIES by RedheadWithThread on: November 01, 2017 09:17:14 PM
For my toddler's Halloween costume I wanted something as simple as possible so I made him a pirate. Sadly, we didn't trick-or-treat because we're both sick but I did get a few cute pics of him in costume.
The shirt I made from a pattern I drafted myself and the pants were made from McCall's 6016 with the pockets left off.


Lying down (the clearest shot of the whole costume, just in case):

Sadly, I couldn't get him to keep on the Dollar Tree pirate's hat or hold onto his toy sword. He was all about having that sword and swinging it around until I tried to get a picture of him with it. Roll Eyes

Prompt: September - Star Wars
Team: Fandom
Project Name: ButterflyBog
I finally got around to watching the movie Strange Magic. It is an oddly charming movie and I think the Bog King and Princess Marianne make such an adorable couple. So I decided to make a little doodle of them. But it took longer than expected as I'm out of practice and his hair/head scales took a bit of figuring out (45 mins for this simple thing). Bog is the king of the goblins who live in the dark forest and Marianne is the eldest princess of the Fairy Kingdom, which is a field full of sunshine, so they're definitely a dark/light couple.

I need to take time every once in a while to doodle so that I can get better.

Holy cheese there IS a squirrel on that fabric! That's so cute! Cheesy

I took some time to doodle today because it's been a while since I've drawn anything.
So I drew a cute cuddly headshot of Bog King and Marianne from Strange Magic. It's an oddly charming movie.

His hair/head scales were the hardest part. And they still don't look quite right but it works Smiley

Squishy puff quilt! Cheesy I love those things! And yours is very pretty Renstar! :3

Lindy I love that "DIY or DIE" patch. And that necklace that looks like it's growing crystals is lovely!

Ooh, sheep's gonna be Luna! I love it! I applaud anyone who's got the patience to crochet with thread.

Bunny is a sewing MACHINE! Shocked Those pouches look so nice. I, too, am curious what pattern you use.

After much crocheting and frogging and crocheting again, and fighting the toddler for the yarn (he loves bright colors), I've finally finished my toddler's slippers:

Who needs bunny slippers when you can have PIKACHU? Grin They got their own post over on the crochet board. And as soon as I tidy my notes, I hope to share the pattern for them.

Prompt: October - Hair
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Community, Engineering
Project Name: Pikachu toddler slippers
Project Link: Here
Who wants bunny slippers when you could have PIKACHU slippers instead? Grin My toddler is in love with bright colors and seems to be particularly enamored with Pikachu. Any time I wear my Pikachu pj shirt he tries to snuggle the Pikachu. And he even tried pulling the Pikachu cutout off of the window at our local gaming store. Cheesy So when I couldn't find a boyish slipper pattern that I liked, I decided to make up my own and turn them into Pikachu. This fits the hair prompt because they're made of yarn.

My 18 month old isn't really interested in the Pokemon show but he does love my Pikachu shirt; I think it's because Pikachu's bright yellow.
I made up the pattern as I went along on the first one and took notes as I went so that I could make the second one match. They're not a *perfect* match, but my son doesn't care.
Front and side:

On the toddler's feet:

The slipper before I added the extra bits (that's the ears next to it):

As soon as I clean up my notes, I'll try to share the pattern.
