1  Little Blue Monster in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by LaundryBunny on: October 08, 2012 09:51:40 AM
I finally finished this monster!!

I'd expected her to only take a week or two, but she ended up taking months because of other projects and "creative block"  Roll Eyes

I tried adding some more clay accents this time.  I love clay, but I'm terrible at it.  Definitely have a new found respect for everyone who can successfully get it to do what they want.

The shaping on her feet could have turned out better, but I at least have a better understanding of it.

Her arms also swing at the shoulder.

I'd love to know what you think!

2  Angry Sun in Knitting: Completed Projects by LaundryBunny on: August 16, 2012 11:44:34 AM
So the heat wave this summer inspired an angry sun doll.  I imagined him screaming heat down on us for the last couple of months.  I hid inside and knit this.

It's the first time I've designed my own knitted toy.  I played around with short rows for the shaping on his neck and stomach.  Here's his bulging belly.

I'd love to know what you think.  Thanks for looking!

3  Bakerella in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by LaundryBunny on: July 21, 2011 08:21:05 AM
For the most recent One Tiny Stuffie Swap, my partner mentioned that she'd like a cute domestic monster.  This is what happened.

My partner likes to bake, so she has a little flowered apron.

I wanted to give her fangs, so I made some fang beads out of Sculpey and sewed them in from the inside.  I was really nervous about it and didn't think it would work, but I'm so happy with how they turned out.

I can't wait to try the same technique for other accessories.

She ended up being a bit front heavy, so I gave her a small tail and stuffed it with PVC pellets.  She can stand on her own now.

I was really happy with how she turned out.  I'd love to know what you think!

Wow that little dragon is great!

I'm SO happy you like her littlesquirrel!  I was really excited when you told me what you wanted, and I was elated that the fangs worked out.  (Brand new technique I wasn't convinced would work.)

Also happy to see that she's already made her way into the kitchen  Wink

This has been a great swap!  I loved making that little monster, and I got seriously amazing circus stuff in return  Cheesy  I really hope there's another round.

I couldn't post this until you received (not that it gives much away), but my own little monster started to protest my craft time.

The only time she touches my yarn is if she's trying to get me to do something else  Smiley

I got home from the post office to find littlenutbrownsquirrel's package had arrived!

I told her that I'd like something circusy, and she went all out.

I got a dancing elephant and a dapper figi mermaid in their own little circus display.

Here's the little elephant.  I LOVE her outfit and matching hat  Smiley  She's so tiny and cute.

And here's the ringmaster: a figi mermaid!

It was really hard to get a picture of them, but he even has tiny little gold hoop earrings  Cheesy  His whole look is amazing; suspenders, top hat, bowtie, mustache...  I love him!

And of course, they aren't just street performers.  She made them a little circus box to perform in!

The box has little sideshow posters all over it.  These are sooo cool to look at!  But of course my favorite one is of the aerial performers  Cheesy

Thank you so much littlenutbrownsquirrel!  I love everything!  You completely nailed the circus theme  Grin

6  Simple Circuit in Needlework: Completed Projects by LaundryBunny on: February 20, 2011 12:11:30 PM

Even though the actual embroidery isn't much, this project is a big deal to me because it's my first time using conductive thread to sew a circuit.

I've wanted to start learning electronics to work into projects for a long time and I finally just chose a simple pattern to put together.

It's done in hasty backstitch.  I mixed a strand of the conductive thread with two strands of silver embroidery floss.  The LED, battery and battery holder are all from Radio Shack.  The robot pattern is from Diana Eng's book Fashion Geek.

Okay I resized the pictures and am ready to go  Smiley .

For DNA Day, I got this spring colored double helix bracelet.

I love the colors!!

For Frog Day, I got a long-tongued bookmark with the coolest glass eyes.

For Car Care Week, love2teach made me this gorgeous car trash can.  In the picture it looks blue, but it's actually green fabric (matches my car!) with reflective gold thread.  It's beautiful, and very much needed!  It has a velcro "handle" to attach it.

And for Pet Parents Day, I got some goodies for my little furry monster (she's been quite the handful today...)
I tried to get an action shot of the booties, but she really wasn't having it.  They're so cute on her though, and they fit great!

She also got a matching shrug!  It fits her perfectly, and I think she likes it (the surly face has more to do with the bow I made her wear for the pictures!  Smiley )

You can kind of see it in the picture, but the shrug has a flower on the side.  It's so cute on her!!  And it fits perfectly!

Thanks love2teach!  I love everything!  I can't believe you were nervous.  I just hope you like everything I made you as much!  Smiley

Forgot to add that the note card love2teach sent even has a recipe for chocolate mousse on the back!  How great is that??

I love the quilting motifs on the trinket box.  Great idea.  And the dishwasher magnet is so cute!  I'd love one of those...and I'd love a dishwasher to put it on!

I received from music_queen!

For Wildlife Week I got a bunch of cute little wild animals, and for Toy Soldier Week I got a fabric camo bucket.

I love the baby lion the most.   Smiley

music_queen gave me a recipe for double chocolate waffles along with the dry mix for Waffle Week.  This is the perfect excuse to steal borrow the waffle iron from my parents!  It sounds so good, and has chocolate chunks in it!   Cheesy
There's also a snowman candle for Snowman Burning Day, a day I will celebrate with much enthusiasm this year.

And my favorite, a painted piggy bank for Plan a Solo Vacation Day.

It's so cute!!  I plan to start adding money as soon as I get home from work tonight.   Smiley  I haven't been on a vacation in forever, and my friend and I have been talking about taking a 2 or 3 day get away to someplace close.

Thanks music_queen!!  I love everything  Smiley

music_drama received but asked me to post pictures for her.

For Crayola Coloring Day, I made her some Arizona coloring pages.

This was what I made with the new tool.  I used GIMP (it's the free alternative to Photoshop).  I'm still learning it, but it was fun to play with and learn to make coloring pages.  Smiley

For Everything You Do is Right Day, I made the invincibility star from Super Mario Bros.  (Fuzzy beast was not included.)

And for Fanny Pack Day, I made the hipslinger bag by rocknroar.

10  Mini Me in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by LaundryBunny on: March 01, 2010 02:27:26 PM
So I made this doll a couple years ago, and I don't know why I never posted her.  But here she is.

I made a miniature version of myself!

I've learned more about making dolls since then, so there are things that I would have done better (like her neck), but I'm still really happy with how she turned out.

Her face.  The nose ring is an old earring.

And she had to be wearing flip flops.  Until very recently, I absolutely hated wearing shoes.   Roll Eyes

The hair was the challenge, but if I remember right, it was the reason I wanted to try to make a me-doll.  I have big (no, seriously big) curly hair, and I wanted to see if I could make a yarn version when I found yarn that looked like curly hair.  It's blended with two colors of embroidery floss.  I used the technique from the Jack Sparrow pattern.  (I can't remember her user name right now, but her stuff is awesome!  Amy's Babies??)
It's still my favorite part of the doll  Smiley

The arms are jointed so they swing.  And another shot of the big hair.   Smiley

Her body, the pants, arms and flip-flopped feet are from the Super Happy Crochet Cute book.

I ended up giving her to my mom as a Christmas present, and she has recently made it onto display in my parents' house.   Cheesy

I'd love to know what you think!
