1  Second Paper Cut Project Ever. AKU and Bloo and Cheese Brother Ladies! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by soulcrochet on: March 01, 2012 03:53:12 AM
So I was playing around with my little cutting blade and my new, shiny technical Copic pens. I love my pens all over again.

Made a custom end sheet for a journal
for my best friend (or myself! Depends on whether I can let it go!).

Drew Aku and the 'Brother Ladies' freehand from VLC snapshots. I tell you, that VLC snapshot of the brother ladies was a pain in the butt, I kept squinting. Who'd have thunk that drawing cheese would be so hard? They were finally inked in with India ink pigment Copic pens and then colored in using faber castell's artists' pen brushes. I love those pen brushes, they are beautiful. Aku was colored in using a pentel paintbrush pen which is amazing and I love it.

Yes I bought a lot of stationery!

Let me know what you think  Grin

Boring original end sheet of the little journal I bought. *Yawn* If you look closely, mighty Aku approaches.

The mighty Aku is not amused. Whatever could be the reason?

Aha! Now we know. Awww, brother ladies! Muah!

3  Beautiful Linen Napkins - Wedding Gift in Crochet: Completed Projects by soulcrochet on: December 21, 2008 08:30:56 PM
I bought (really expensive!) linen , 80/120 thread count and cut them up to make table napkins. Just a simple crochet edging and monogrammed with the couple's common initial.

This was surprisingly simple but took the better part of two days to make half a dozen napkins.

Please let me know what you guys think. I might actually include these as an item in a craft bazaar or something, I really think they're quite pretty. But of course, I'm biased hehheheh!

5  pretty little fairy - first .. ok.. well.. FIFTH time with clay in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by soulcrochet on: October 30, 2008 10:22:22 AM
I don't have polymer clay , we use something called m - seal, which is a white epoxy compound. I used acrylic to paint the fairy. Can you see the little flower she's sitting on? I'm not too happy with the finishing, would a coat of white glue help make it look a little better. I'm primarily a crocheter but i spent three days on making this one and I can't stop looking at it! What do you guys think?

6  pretty glass bead crochet jewelry in Crochet: Completed Projects by soulcrochet on: September 01, 2008 08:23:29 PM
Hey you guys. It's been AGES since i last posted but my master's program keeps me real busy. anyhoo i found a great little group right here in bangalore to hang out with, its called crafty club. its an odd assortment of knitters, crocheters, quilters etc. and we organise field trips once or twice a month because one woman knows where to get amazing goodies and the cheapest rates possible. So the first trip i took with these guys, i picked up some beautiful amber glass beads and then with the little pure silver wire i had left, i made a really simple crochet chain with the beads. Please let me know what you think?

7  More crochet Jewelry!!! Hairy pictures! in Crochet: Completed Projects by soulcrochet on: December 26, 2007 01:12:45 PM
Hi all,

one more set of earrings and necklace, this for a friend who has a lovely gold brocade with a dark red body dress and has no jewelry, she's going to a wedding in china! Gosh i hope she likes it enough to wear it.. This is done in brass wire, the good thing about brass wire is how gold like it looks (no matter how temporary that quality is..) and i hope it'll go with her dress.. time will tell!

lemme know what you guys think!

8  remy from ratatouille!* NOW WITH FREE PATTERN!!!* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by soulcrochet on: December 16, 2007 12:41:53 AM
Hi all,

In the process of wooing said boy, i've made his favorite cartoon character.. Please let me know what you guys think! I am especially fond of the chef's hat!

As usual, pls let me know what you guys think!

The pattern! EDIT : Ten years later, I realise that I didn't put in the hook size. Knitting cotton and 1.5mm steel crochet hook. Sorry about that!

THE HAT :done in rounds

1. Make magic circle, 6 sc and pull to tighten.
2. 2 sc in each sc - 12 sc total
3. the poofy part is made by a puff stitch.. so 1 puff stitch in each stitch, 12 puff stitches total.
4. the body of the hat is done by 1 hdc in each puff stitch - 12 hdc total
5. repeat step 4. bind off. done!

If anyone needs clarification on what a puff stitch is, pls pm me and i'll explain in detail

THE BODY!:done in rounds as well

1. magic circle, 6 sc in circle pull to tighten
2. 2 hdc in each sc, 12 hdc total
3. 2 hdc in every alternate hdc, 18 hdc total
4. 2 hdc in every 3rd hdc, 24 hdc total
5. 1 hdc in each hdc, 24 hdc total
repeat step 5 twice more
round 8 : *1 hdc in the next 3 hdc, skip one stitch, repeat from * till end, 18 hdc total
9. 1 hdc in each hdc, 18 hdc total
repeat step 9 twice more
12. *2hdc in next 2 hdc, skip 1 stitch, repeat from *12 hdc total
13. 1 hdc in each hdc , 12 hdc total , fill with polyfill and shape accordingly
bind off leaving a 6 inch tail of thread.. for sewing to the head later!

THE ARMS :you can either make them separately and sow them on, or attach them to the body in the beginning itself. you just need to make a tube of 6 hdc, 5 rows long, a cylindrical tube. so basically you start off with step 1 of making the body and keep adding rows of hdc's till you get a cylindrical tube of 5 rows. on the end of each row,
for fingers you attach the pink colored thread and
make 3 ch and sl stitch into each one (thumb) and then make 5 ch and slip stitch into each one, make this twice (the two middle fingers) and then 3 ch again and slip stitch into each one and attach to the tube and bind off.
it's simpler than it sounds trust me.. just a little fiddly

THE FEET: follow the same steps as for the fingers and attach to the bottom of the body leaving a gap of two stitches between the feet..you want them close together really

THE TAIL: make 20 ch, slip stitch in the first 5, sc in the next five, hdc in the next 5 ch and dc in the last 5 ch. bind off leaving a tail of thread so you can sow it to the body.. it attaches on the thicker bit.


1.magic circle with the pink thread, 6 sc in the circle, pull to tighten. (nose)
2.switch to blue thread, 1 hdc in each sc, 6 hdc total
3.2 hdc in each hdc, 12 hdc total
4. 1 hdc in each, 12 hdc total
5. 2 hdc in ever alternate hdc, 18 hdc total
6. 1 hdc in each hdc, 18 total
7. repeat step 6
8. repeat step 6.
9. * 1 hdc in next 2 hdc, skip 1 hdc, repeat from * 12 hdc total at which point you should fill with polyfill
10. *1 hdc in next hdc, skip 1 hdc repeat from * 6 hdc total, after which you slip stitch into the opposite stitch to close up the teeny hole just made Smiley

THE EARS! : NOT done in rounds

1. 2 ch.
2. 2 sc in each ch, 4 sc total
3. 1 sc in each sc, 4 sc total
4. slip stitch down the side of the work done, bind off leaving a 3 inch tail for sowing to the head
stitch them onto the 6th row of the head, spaced about three to four stitches apart.

embroider the eyes or just stick googly eyes on em, knot on the whiskers with  white thread, which i stiffened with white glue..

Done? done! whew.. i do not like writing down patterns! if anyone makes these, please let me see them! if anyone needs help, please pm me!

have fun!

10  spun silver with pearls and glass bead jewelry- earrings and necklace! in Crochet: Completed Projects by soulcrochet on: December 02, 2007 10:57:55 AM
wedding present for a very close friend.. Luckily in india, you can buy pure silver in ingots and have it drawn out really fine for crocheting.. ooo my poor fingers.. the pearls are freshwater rice pearls and go so beautifully with silver. I just bought a bunch of semi precious stones, so look out for more jewelry Smiley) . As always, please let me know what you think. I'm afraid i've been very bad about posting patterns for the last few things i've done, and i've no pattern for this one.. just trial and error. So, onto the pics!

hoop earring

both of em together!
