1  Re: Circular Shrug / Vest - Scale Model - TUTORIAL in Knitting: Completed Projects by toriaa on: February 13, 2010 03:14:11 PM
I know this thread is sort of dead, buuuttt.... I made a Circular Shrug!! It still needs a clasp or some ribbon or something. Time to go accessory shopping -- woo!

Do you like it? I'm very proud of the result... this thing took me ages!

2  octopus finger puppet in Crochet: Completed Projects by toriaa on: February 13, 2010 03:12:45 PM
A friend's birthday snuck up on me recently, so with only a few hours to spare, I whipped up this adorable octopus finger puppet for a cutesy little gift!

I didn't have glue, so his eyes are held on with white fabric paint... :S oops!

I used a pattern that I found online by the lovely Suzetta Williams: http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com/2009/08/suzies-octopus-finger-puppet.html

3  loofah bear in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by toriaa on: February 13, 2010 02:59:06 PM
I made this adorable guy from a drugstore loofah, felt, thread, and patience. Sewing the limbs/head wasn't bad, but fastening them to the center of the loofah was frustrating! The loofah bear was gifted to a friend for Christmas and yes, my friend actually uses it to shower... it hasn't fallen apart yet, so I must have done something right Smiley haha.

sorry to read that we needed one...

since it seems as though she won't be receiving it any time soon, here is the OTT that i sent!

i call him Harold the Inspiration Duck (since hellobint has been looking for motivation to learn to knit!).

I received!!

This is my awesome little (yet unnamed) guy from Hellobint! Isn't he precious?! I think I'm going to dangle him from my cell-phone for all the world to see.  Cheesy

He was hiding in his shell when I opened him...

And without the shell:

Isn't he cuuuuute?! I wish my [roomate's] camera took clearer pictures...

it's an awful drawing, but here's what i'm picturing:

cut the first two pieces out of cardboard or posterboard or something similar (thin and sturdy) and then attach the two together in the middle with a "butterfly tack"...

i honestly googled everything i could think of to describe the tack, to no avail. it's like a thumbtack, but instead of having one sturdy post, it has two thin metal posts that are bendable. you would put holes in the cardboard, then push the tack through and bend the posts to opposite sides, thus keeping the two pieces together, but with some room for them to move back&forth like scissors!

I used your pattern! Thank you so much for posting it.  Cheesy

It was a teeny gift for my roommate who loves Firefly (in which Kaylee is obsessed with strawberries).

10  Pink Elephant Finger Puppet in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by toriaa on: January 30, 2008 06:11:57 PM
We're going out for my friend's birthday tonight, so I thought I'd whip her up a sweet little present!

His trunk is unusually large and phallic.... haha. My bad!

I used a pattern that I found on CPC, except that I modified the arms a little bit.

LINK: http://members.aol.com/SAG55/elephant.html

Rnd 9: Sc in 3 sc, sc in first ch that begins the arm, sc last sc of arm, sc in 5 sc, sc in first ch that begins the 2nd arm, sc last sc of 2nd arm, sc in 4 sc. (16)
Rnd 10: sc2tog under each arm (14)
Rnd 11: sc2tog under each arm (12)
Rnd 12-15: Work even on 12 sc.

I've never written out directions before, so hopefully it makes sense! Feel free to ask me any questions.
