1  Re: 50 Projects More or Less...2017...Let's Create and Have Fun! in Craftalongs by FreakieGeekie on: April 21, 2017 12:21:57 AM
Hello! Cheesy
I've managed to escape my tiny overlord's clutches for the weekend (my parents have him) and sat down to draw a bit.
I made two sketches of the tiny overlord in Disney style.

3  Lucius, Disney style in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FreakieGeekie on: April 21, 2017 12:15:29 AM
Yesterday I decided since my parents have the baby for the weekend that I would sit down and sketch a bit.
So what did I draw? My son, Lucius, because I have lots of photos of him that I could use as references.
But I've never drawn a baby in my style (which is a sort of comic book-esque style) so I decided to draw him Disney style.

I realize that it's typically only the baby Disney girls that have the pouty mouths but he's really good at doing that pouty face so it fits. The hands are a bit off/arms are too short but this is the first drawing I'd made in quite some time (at least a year, I believe).

This one was based on a photo I have of him and his Mickey Mouse (he LOVES Mickey Mouse).

I may make some more drawings pf him before the weekend is over. If I do, I'll update this post.

My little sprog is entertained by the 90s Batman cartoon (one of the few shows he actually watches) and in the episode "Tyger, Tyger", there was a character named Dr. Emile Dorian who looks an awful lot like Ernest in his role of Dr. Pretorius:

Even my hubs, who usually doesn't notice things like that, said "Hey, he looks like that mad scientist guy from that old Frankenstein movie."

5  My first corner-to-corner blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by FreakieGeekie on: February 05, 2017 09:20:13 PM
Quite a few people in one of the FB crochet/knitting groups in which I'm a member were posting "C2C" blankets. I did a bit of research and decided that I really, really liked the look.
After working a few rows, I decided I liked the feel too, and set about working on a blanket for my hubs. Hubs said I needed to make a blanket for our son because he has a blanket (actually, he has an afghan which was made for and given to me YEARS ago that he swears is his).
I put aside his blanket and made this for our 10 month old using some mystery yarn hubs bought for me at Michael's. It was in bags which say "Fashion Plus" on them; none of the yarns had labels so I don't know the weight/color/brand or anything about them. I had 15 skeins to work with but ran out with only 14 rows to go! (This isn't a "baby" sized blanket but for when he's older.)
So I had hubs take me to Michael's, hoping they'd have something really close to its color in stock. Nope! No such luck! Tongue
Hubs suggested Hobby Lobby. I was skeptical but since HL is five minutes from Michael's, I agreed.
I hurried to the yarn section and, lo and behold, they had a purple yarn that was really, really close in color: Lion Brand Heartland yarn in Hot Springs. (Today I learned that my yarn was probably Heartland Thick and Quick in Hot Springs).
I pulled from the center and the end, doubling up the yarn and finished it off.
It's quite obvious in this photo because of the lighting (intentional) but otherwise, it's hard to see the difference.

Research Project Name: Magic-al Bouquet + Boutonniere
Team: Fandom
Project Link: Coming Soon
Long time overdue but here's my bouquet and my hubby's boutonniere (which I forgot to include as part of the original proposal; oops!). The bouquet is made of 22 flowers, each of which was made using the mana symbols from one of each of the five mana colors in Magic: The Gathering (this means I cut up 110 mana cards, not counting the ones I had cut that hubby accidentally tossed out). The centers of the flowers are made from the card art of the cut up flowers. Each flower took me about an hour (sometimes longer) from cutting to prep (rolling the petals on a crochet hook so they'd curve) to assembly. Then I arranged them, securing them with floral tape as I went to make sure they stayed put. Hubs's boutonniere was so much easier. And the center of his flower is the mana circle from the back of a Magic: The Gathering carh, which I painstakingly made sure lined up with the corresponding petal colors. It's hot glued onto an alligator clip and clipped into the buttonhole of his lapel because I couldn't find my brooch pin backs! Tongue

Research Project Name: Garruk and Chandra (I didn't see this on the front page?)
Team: Fandom
Project Link: Coming Soon (I have to get good shots from the front)
Garruk is my hubs's favorite Planeswalker, as well as MY favorite Planeswalker and he's big/tall like my hubs so I decided Garruk would be great to have as a table decoration for the groom. Chandra is a redhead and feisty, like myself, so I decided she would be great as the bride. Originally, we were just going to buy Funko Pop! Vinyls of them but Garruk was really expensive at the time we were looking. So I took it upon myself to crochet dolls that were like the figures. It worked. Sort of: I hit the deadline before I got them 100% complete and became so frustrated that I couldn't make them perfect copies that I am not adding to them. But they're cute as they are and are recognizable as Chandra and Garruk (friends were excitedly asking "Is that Chandra and Garruk?!" as I put them on the table) so I'm happy with them. Maybe some day I'll make small, Funko-sized versions that are more detailed.

These photos are courtesy of my wedding photographer, Al Quartermont, who is also a local TV news anchor Smiley I'll be getting more shots of Chandra and Garruk soon. And possibly the bouquet, if I can find where I put it up! Huh

Prompt: December - Hip Hop
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Link's Hats
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451319.0
These hats were inspired by smileyyogini, who crocheted a Link hat for me a few years ago in a swap. I LOVE my Link hat and had a few friends request Link hats as gifts. Well, I didn't have the pattern on hand so I crocheted these by just looking at my hat. If I had half a brain, I would have actually just counted the stitches/rows to make it easier for myself Roll Eyes

Prompt: January - Zelda
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Link's Other Hat
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451319.0
This hat was started after the others were finished (end of December) but I put off finishing it to make other things (which I need to photograph). So it sat in my crochet basket with just three rows worked on it until earlier this evening when I finally decided to finish it. This hat is to go with the other Link hats but it wasn't a gift request: I crocheted it just so that I could say I had made a hat in each of the colors from the Four Swords Adventure.

8  Link's hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by FreakieGeekie on: January 10, 2017 09:38:50 PM
I had a few friends request Link hats as gifts after they saw the one that the amazing smileyyogini crocheted for me a few years ago in a swap.
Instead of being smart and counting the stitches/rows, I just stared at the hat then started working. My hubs pointed out my silly mistake after I had the third hat half complete. Roll Eyes
The first three are gifts, the fourth is just to complete the set.

I am waaaay behind on commenting on all the lovely things here! I just want everyone to know that y'all are amazing and to keep on being awesome! Kiss

I do have some projects to post, too:
An elf for my friend Booboo (EVERYONE calls her that)

Ranger cookies I made a few weeks ago for our Game Night (I used walnuts instead of pecans)

My little froggy's first stocking

A couple of dice bags for some friends

I crocheted a hat for my cousin's little girl but I don't think I got a picture of it before I wrapped it up! Tongue
I also need to take pictures of my wedding veil (it was super quick to make), my wedding bouquet, and the two table centerpieces I crocheted (they're amis). I also have a few more dice bags that need pics.

10  Baby's first Christmas stocking in Winter Holidays by FreakieGeekie on: December 22, 2016 08:23:29 PM
This year is my son's first Christmas and this is his first stocking, handmade with love.
He's already given it his seal of approval: he drooled on it and tried to eat it. Roll Eyes

I made it using this free pattern from Ravelry. I messed up on the toe: I made it a bit too long. But at least my little guy has a stocking now! Cheesy
