1  Re: Octopode Pandemonium! (Now with Tutorial!) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by supersleeves on: April 16, 2007 02:43:43 PM
I saw this pattern online last week, and I had to make it Smiley My mom snagged some awesome blue/green wool yarn from a wholesale blow-out a couple of months ago... it was perfect for this project! I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with a stuffed octopus (dorm rooms are small!), so I gave to to my boyfriend's nephew for his 2nd birthday. He seemed to like it, as much as a 2 year old can like anything Smiley

I only had enough yarn to do five legs...

May I present Pierre Pentapus:

He enjoys Enviga.

Boyfriend with the pentapus:

And me & Pierre:

I received today from how_german, and I was blown away by the amazing package!! She put so much time and thought into everything... I love it ALL! On to the pictures:

Here's everything:

LOVELY mittens... they're SO soft and have an adorable bow:

Front of a mini wallet/change purse thing... it's knit and SO soft. And I LOVE the colors:


Radiohead pincushion!! This is done SO well... ahh!

Bead lizard stitch markers in great colors: (the pictures get crappy here cause i just got back from a 4 hour chemistry lab and the sun is going down Tongue)

A great note (you inspired me to learn to knit mittens!!), a gourd (so festive!), and a Pittsburg pin:

My roommate and one of my friends were severely jealous of my package, and I couldn't stop smiling when I opened it. Everything is so personal and awesome... I LOVE everything. Nikki, you were such a great swap partner!! Smiley Smiley

3  pirate ipod case goes overboard :( in Stitch And BOTCH by supersleeves on: June 09, 2006 09:26:05 AM
my boyfriend has been bugging me for months to make him a case for his ipod. yesterday, i was browsing the fabric store and found this great red and white striped fabric that reminded me of pirates, so an idea popped into my head. boyfriend would finally get his case!! i had it all planned out... it would be one of those cases with a flap over the front, which would have holes cut out for the screen and click wheel. i decided to stencil a pirate skull and crossbones on the front (which came out awesome), then attach elastic so he could secure the flap over the front. i even bought enough felt to do TWO layers of padding, so his precious ipod wouldn't get beat up in the pit of his car.

i brought it all home, and got to work.

now, i've made some complicated things before, mostly just winging all of it. i've made a few ipod cases out of felt, and they all came out great. but for some reason, this one wanted to fail on me. it looked amazing up until the last step when i tried to sew everything together. this is what i got:

somehow, the top which fit perfectly in the initial stages somehow managed to be TOO tall, and the screen and clickwheel holes are too far down. hmph. it also poofs up retardedly.

here is the front with the flap down. i didn't even bother to add the elastic becasue, look how ridiculous it looks. i figured the front would be a little short, but i mean... c'mon. my pattern worked perfectly!!

so now i'm sitting here all sad and defeated... any advice on how to make an pod case that DOESN'T look this dumb upon finishing? poor boyfriend... he has been waiting so long for this. Sad

peopleshootinghat: I LOVE that yarn!! What kind is it? The color is fabulous Smiley

Here's my hat... slightly modified. I wasn't really feeling the kitty ears, so I added a pompom instead. It's my first attempt at a hat (and I knitted it on straight needles instead of in the round).

Me being excited about my new hat!

my hat hanging out on my cluttered desk. Smiley

I can't wait to make another!
