91  Harley the Chihuahua amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: March 25, 2016 01:06:10 AM
The pup in the foreground is *technically* my mom's Chihuahua, Harley. He's a very well-loved three year old dog who thinks he's a person and he adores my dad more than anyone (he was given to my mom so, technically, he's my mom's).

He doesn't mind being put in a sweater but if you put anything else on him, he flops over as if he's done with life. Since my mom wishes he'd let her dress him up in cute things for the holidays, I set out to find a crochet pattern for a Chihuahua. I found "Lucky the Chihuahua Dog Amigurumi" on Ravelry by user Doris Yu. I followed it except for the color pattern for the dog since Harley's color pattern is very different.

I should have embroidered his toe spots instead of crocheting them because they turned out too big but he's still cute.
Now all I have to do is make up some cute little holiday themed accessories for him (Christmas hat, Easter bunny ears, trick-or-treat bag, etc) and I'll be able to give him to my mom. She loved the pic so I know she'll love him even more when I give him to her along with the little dress up goodies. Smiley
I'll update this post when I get the little extras complete.
I'll also be making a dress-up ami of my sister's Chihuahua, Max, who is the other Chi in the photo.

So many awesome things have been posted while I've been away from Craftster! Shocked
Here's something I made about a week or so ago but never got around to posting:

It's an ami of my mom's Chihuahua, Harley. He's not an exact copy but he looks pretty close and my mom loves it. I've yet to give him to her (I sent her a pic) because I'm going to make some cute holiday themed accessories to go with him. I'll also be making one of my sister's Chihuahua, Max.
He was made from a pattern I found on Ravelry called Lucky the Chihuahua Dog Amigurumi by user Doris Yu. I didn't follow the pattern exactly except for the stitch count because Harley's color pattern is different from the patterns'. His eyes are 12mm stuffed animal eyes and his nose is a 15mm stuffed animal nose; I got the eyes and noses from Hobby Lobby.

I drew, which is something that I haven't done in quite a while! Shocked

It's supposed to be me and my fiance but I drew it without reference so it's a bit off. The most glaringly obvious issue is the height difference: the top of my head just barely comes to his shoulder. He's supposed to look as if he's leaning down slightly but it didn't quite come out right Tongue

I made these purses last month but never got around to posting them to the games Tongue The larger one is for my younger sister, the smaller neon purse was made for a friend whose birthday is this month, and the smallest one is for my cousin's little girl.

95  Master Key keychain in Needlework: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: March 04, 2016 12:58:46 PM
My aunt is an avid fan of the Legend of Zelda series and has logged untold hours in Ocarina of Time and Link to the Past. She's also prone to losing her keys so I figured the best way for her to keep up with her keys would be if I made her a keychain that was hard to overlook.
With her love for LoZ in mind, I went to Pinterest and started searching for LoZ themed cross stitch patterns. I found an Etsy pattern-listing for the Master Key, which I thought would be fitting for a keychain.

The keychain is worked on 10 count plastic canvas and is double-sided: the other side is a mirror image of this side but I didn't take a picture of the other side. The key is 1.5" x 1.5" (at the widest point). I took a picture of it next to my hand because when I took a picture of it alone, it gave the impression that it was large.

96  Super Mario themed coasters in Needlework: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: March 01, 2016 10:47:29 AM

My fiance was saying we needed coasters so I pulled out the plastic canvas that alwaysinmyroom had sent me and some yarn and hit Pinterest for ideas.
I had saved a lot of Perler bead and cross stitch patterns with Mario as the theme and decided that I would use some of the iconic images for our coasters.
These are a little over 3"x3" (I accidentally cut them as 22 sqs x 22 sqs instead of 21x21) and were worked using the tent stitch and Red Heart yarns. They're backed with felt interfacing to keep them from sliding around.

97  Pretty purses in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: March 01, 2016 09:15:49 AM

My sister was saying she wanted a new purse and since she's bad about losing her purse (never when she's out anywhere, always at home), I made her one using Red Heart's Blacklight yarn so that it would be easier to spot; the strap is Red Heart Black. I crocheted it using two strands of yarn held together and a J-hook so that it would be sturdier and wouldn't need a lining sewn in; she prefers a purse without a closure so that it's easier for her to get to her inhaler if she needs it.
My friend loved the colors so much that she asked if I could make one for her birthday gift. However, she wanted a smaller one, one that was "just big enough for [her] cellphone, 3DS, and one of [her] Magic decks". Since I didn't have a button that I thought would look good with the Blacklight yarn, I crocheted a cover onto a button before sewing it on.
The tiny pink/brown purse is for my cousin's two year-old, who LOVES purses and is always trying to steal her aunts' or Mawmaw's purses. I made it using the yarn I had left over from making her aunt's purse because her favorite color is pink. The yarn is Loops & Threads Charisma in Chocolate Cupcake.
My sister's purse was made by making three rectangles: one for the front, a slightly larger one for the back, and a long narrow one for the strap. I sewed the ends of the strap together then pinned it to the sides and sewed them together. My friend's purse was made from two rectangles: one for the front and back, which I folded over, and one long narrow one for the strap. The pattern for the mini purse was made up as a I went along.

These purses were made as an experiment in which I attempted to make my own simple yet elegant purse pattern. They turned out much better than I expected. Both purses are worked in the round. When I reached the desired depth, I worked a row 'til I reached the desired length. I then cut the yarn and started at the edge of the flap and worked it across, skipping a few stitches at the center of the flap for the button hole. Once I reached the end, I turned and worked back across the row.
I made some notes for both of these purses but I'm not too sure that they'll be much use as I can't quite decipher them myself! Tongue But I will be attempting another purse from it and hope to make more coherent notes so that I can share the pattern!
The pink/brown purse is Loops & Threads Charisma in Chocolate Cupcake and the blue multicolor is Loops & Threads Charisma in Northern Lights.

98  Nerdy Hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: March 01, 2016 08:44:28 AM
This set of R2-D2 hats were made for my fiance's nephews. These were 99% finished in December: the hats just needed the little details sewn on.

These were made using this Star Wars Droid Beanies pattern I found on Ravelry.

I made the Deadpool hat for myself to wear on Valentine's Day when my fiance and I went to see the Deadpool movie. But the weather was warmer than previously predicted so the hat stayed home. It's simply my basic beanie pattern with an applique of Deadpool's logo sewn on it.
The red Mario hat I made for my cousin's son, who adores the Mario games. It was made using a pattern for a lady's newsboy cap. I noticed that many who had made the hat using the same weight yarn, same hook, and matched the gauge had said it was much too small, even for a woman with a smaller head so I knew it would be the perfect size for him Smiley
The Pokeball hat was made using my own pattern with color changes and a sewn on release button applique.

I've been away for a while because the cushioning in my chair is wearing thin so it's NOT comfortable to me right now Tongue
But I have been making crafts and here they are:

(these were 99% finished: the hats just needed the little details)
(made a couple of these in December but most of them were made in January)

100  Snuggly baby things in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: January 17, 2016 07:14:43 PM
I'm pregnant with my first sprog and since he's due at the end of March, which is sometimes still chilly, I crocheted up a cocoon, booties, and beanie for him Smiley

The cocoon was made using this pattern from Red Heart, the booties are from this pattern from Crochet Hooks You, and the hat was made from my own pattern, which involved some trial and error.
I know it looks a bit weird that there's no white on the hat or booties but the cocoon was supposed to have a fuzzy trim on it and I didn't have fuzzy yarn (I hate that stuff).

Yarns used:
Loops and Threads Charisma in Aqua (the label says it's Aqua but it doesn't look the slightest bit green; the blanket pictured on the label called for Aqua and it looks more green)
Red Heart Super Saver in White
