1  lots of pincushions = lots of pictures in Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: June 01, 2008 07:56:21 PM
I have a huge collection of odd little containers that I've picked up at garage sales and thrift stores over the last couple of years.  I really have no use for them but I seem unable to resist buying them Wink.  Anyways I decided to make a few of them into pincushions.

A poodle...


an owl...

a little cup...

a little bird...

ice cream...

and a foot:

None of these took very much skill but they were a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Thanks for looking!

2  Hmmm...cat bed or fancy litterbox? in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: May 15, 2008 09:05:15 PM
Josephine is a very special cat.  She was scheduled to be put to sleep because her owner was moving but by chance I heard about her situation and she came to live with us instead.  She's very timid and spend the first 10 months hiding in our closet only coming out when I'm holding her or at night. 

Recently she's become brave enough to venture out of the closet on her own and so to reward her I thought I'd make a bed of her very own.  It's nothing too special, no pattern except for the one in my head..but the reason I like it so much is the tiny mice on the fabric  Wink

The only problem is that she thought that I had made her a very fancy litter box and the next morning there was poop it it  Tongue.   I had to give it to my other cat who promptly pulled off the pompom and squished it since he's so fat  Undecided.

3  Flying Homer! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: May 15, 2008 08:07:02 PM
My husband is crazy about flying his remote control planes so when he asked me to crochet him a pilot for his new plane I was was super nervous because my husband occasionally has a bit too much faith in my crafting abilities.  After about 2 Sundays and 2 seasons of Stargate Atlantis on DVD (I know...we're geeks) Homer the pilot was finished and my husband was very happy with the result.  I couldn't use a pattern because he had to be a very specific size to fit in the cockpit properly but I also was too lazy to write down what I did which I'm smacking myself in the head for now  Undecided ...oh well.

Before the flight

Buckle up for safety

Ready for takeoff

5  First Project Ever... lil' blue bird in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: August 13, 2007 07:51:18 PM
Okay, so I'm a little embarrassed to post on here with all this great crocheted stuff so keep in mind I just learned how to crochet.  I've struggled with it off and on.  My mom works with a very sweet mentally handicapped lady who crochets and she tried to teach me and I just couldn't get it.  Till a few days ago, on my birthday I tried again and I guess I had magic birthday powers that day because I got it.  At least I think I got the concept of it.  I still can't read a pattern and I but I was practicing and I thought it was starting to look like something so I just went with it.   I guess I should have started with a scarf like normal people but I'm not very normal.  Anyways I'll stop rambling now, here she is:

By the way, if you see that I did something strange please feel free to let me know.

6  Pantry door in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: August 12, 2007 06:25:52 PM
I thought I needed a bit more color in my kitchen.  I have a few vintage looking signs up so I thought the old ads would fit right in.

7  Beehive Hidey house in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: February 11, 2007 05:39:06 PM
So I'm working on garden themed cage accessories for my guinea pigs and I came up with the idea of a beehive hidey house. 

I didn't sew the little bee but I found him in my crafting stash and thought that he was perfect.  Hopefully the little bee makes it look like a beehive.  My guinea pigs couldn't care less what it looks like they were just excited about the cushy bed.  So excited, in fact, that they left a little welcome poop at the door.

8  Dog collars in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: February 11, 2007 05:19:07 PM
I made up some collars the other day for my pups.  The skull one is made out of some boxers that my husband never wore and and the pink one is from some fabrics scraps I picked up at the local thrift store.

Congrats on the new bun!  Rabbits make wonderful pets, I had to put mine to asleep this summer because of teeth problems and a serious jaw deformity that the vet couldn't fix.  I don't know how much experience you have with bunnies, but you really have to watch out for teeth problems.

Here's a picture of my bun's cage.  In the evenings he had free range of our house.

One tip that I found very useful was the idea to use zip ties as well as the connectors to give the cage strength.

10  Guinea pig's Christmas cage in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Chubby Pixie on: December 19, 2006 09:28:38 PM
I thought my guinea pigs, Pixie and Zinnea, needed a little Christmas cheer this year and since tradional christmas decorations aren't safe for them I decided to make my own.

The wreath bed...

The holly hammock...

and the present hidey. 

The girls have decided that they prefer to flatten the present and sleep on top...silly little pigs. Oh well, its all washable I suppose.  I also put christmas lights and garland (well out of their reach of course) on the wall behind their cage.

Thanks for looking!
