Those slippers are adorable! I wonder how long he'll keep them on his feet!  Cheesy

Surprisingly, he wore them for a couple of hours last night before he took them off. I'm guessing his feet got too warm. 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.

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

Thanks. Smiley
I've got to remake the Pikachu ears. I only had one pair made but they're missing. I've turned the house upside down and can't find them. I'm thinking my monster might have thrown them in the trash and today was trash day. For some reason, he likes putting random things in the trashcan. I caught him throwing my cellphone away one day! Shocked

Crossplay is when a female dresses as a male character or a male dresses as a female character, and does it convincingly enough to fool onlookers.
Genderbending is when you change a character's gender for cosplay.
Example: a guy wearing fake bosoms, a Sailor Moon costume, wig, and make-up to make him look feminine (and probably speaking in a feminine voice) is crossplaying as Sailor Moon. But when I dressed as the 11th Doctor for Halloween a few years ago and wore a black skirt instead of black trousers, I was genderbending.

He doesn't like keeping them on his feet Tongue I'm hoping when it gets cold he'll keep them on.
If not, maybe he'll like the pair that I'm currently working on Grin The slippers are finished, I'm just working on the little fiddly bits that will give them their charm.

It's hard to find crochet patterns for things specifically for little boys. Especially slippers. I found oodles of slippers for little girls with very few for boys.
Unless I wanted a paid pattern. Tongue
I'm not against paid patterns but I don't have the spare funds to buy one at the moment, so I took this pattern for Tinkerbell slippers and made them in Red Heart's Brilliant Yellow, with the intention of making Pikachu slippers (he LOVES Pikachu).
But the first turned out a little wonky. I was going to frog it and redo it, but the kiddo took the first and ran off with it earlier so I just made the mate, which is still wonky but not as bad as the first. I'll make Pikachu slippers out of the next pair I make, if they don't turn out wonky.
The slippers:


Sorry for the lighting: it's night time and the monster was sleeping.

On the monster child:


He woke up not too long after I made the second one so I tried them on him. They fit! Yay! Cheesy He thought it was funny to yank them off and throw them so I was only able to get a pic of him wearing one Roll Eyes

These are absolutely gorgeous! I think the purple and peacock ones are my favorites but, as others have said, it's hard to choose because they're all so pretty!

I saw where you said that you used a vacuum tube to block them. Yep, you'll fit in perfectly here. I think everyone here has MacGuyvered something for at least one project at some point or other. And I'm also pretty sure that many of us are habitual MacGuyverors, usually because we forgot to buy something or other that we thought we already had on hand but was either used previously and we forgot about it, or has vanished into the depths of our stashes.

Sheep, I love that little bunny. It's so cute. I feel the bunny is riding the tiger into another world via the frame which the tiger's half thru. And they're running a bit late, which is why the bunny has a coffee, and it's raining on the other side, which explains the umbrella. But I'm prone to flights of fancy so your mileage may vary Wink Your hoop is awesome, too. So simple yet so beautiful.

I love your twinchies, CLM, and the little spiderweb piece. I really love the sloth and your Junker Jane style kitty. I now find myself wanting to make a kitty for Halloween, though my tiny terror will probably take it for his own (he thinks EVERYTHING I make is for him Roll Eyes).

AIMR, those mug rugs are so pretty! I love them both but that teal (or is it peacock?) on the first is gorgeous!

bunny1kenobi, I love your Halloween stuff but those towels (are they towels?) that you did for your daughter are too cute! The middle one made me laugh because my husband said "they see me rollin', they hatin'" while I was rolling loaves of French bread the other day. Roll Eyes

As far as the Scrubby yarn, my opinion is that it's kinda itchy. The roughness doesn't bother me but the sort of itchiness I feel when working it makes me not like using it. I think I've still got four or so skeins from when my hubs found some super cheap at Michael's and bought it for me to make us some pot scrubbers. I've made four for myself and six or so for my parents. The Scrubby yarn is *great* for stuck-on stuff on stainless because it doesn't scratch it! Shocked
