He really is just perfect.  I'm going to watch your etsy to see when you make the pattern available:-)

Thanks!  The email I got from Eli when he received the package was awesome for my ego.  I'm my own worse critic.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cernunnos on: March 07, 2011 11:08:39 PM
So, a friend of mine wanted a pagan god figure crocheted by myself.  We looked online, however, the only one we could find, and ultimately decided on, was pretty sad looking.  Well, I got 85% through making it, and decided that it really was only suited to be the dog's toy.  Again, I looked around, and couldn't find anything...

So I found a pattern for a head and body (mainly because I was being lazy, lol), and went from there.  This is based on the Gundestup Calderon.  My friend was very happy with it.  I plan on making another one, but will make up my own head/body pattern to closer match the Calderon.

Progress notes:

Major changes made to turn the little devil into Cernunnos (as depicted on the Gundestrup Cauldron).

Head: per pattern.

Body: Different color than head, so that he looks to be wearing clothing. Done per pattern, stitch-wise.

Arms: Did not do the arms per pattern. Also, I started with skin color, and then changing to clothing color.

Legs: Not done per pattern, and made long enough to cross for the correct look.

The arms were attached, and then stitched at the elbows to give an upward bend.

The legs were attached and crossed as they are on the cauldron.

Here was the tough part. The antlers were difficult to get the right look. So after trial an error, I finally got it looking correct.

The face was embroidered as best I could, very simply.

***Pounce from a fellow IWG member***

I thought that doublet looked familiar as I scroll down the "Recent With Pictures" list.  If my husband was less *ahem* town fool and more dashing rogue, I'd be buying.

Get some knee high (or mid calf) length adult socks.  Leaving the top rib (see picture).  Cut the sock right about the heel.  So now you have 2 pieces.  Now cut just below the heel, and just above the toe (you are cutting the instep out).  You can trash the cut out heel and toe.  Now, fold the instep in half, this is your bottom rib.  You can take an extra step which follows: before folding the instep for the bottom rib, you can cut the instep and take out a piece so that the bottom ribbing is a little smaller than it would otherwise me.  Sew the instep back into a circle.  This is useful if your baby is a skinny-minnie like mine (she's under 18 lb at 1 year).
Fold the instep in half, right side out.  Place the instep/cuff over the cut end of the leg tube.  Sew the two pieces together so that when you flip the instep cuff down, the sewn edge is inside.  Super simple.

I finished.  Unfortunately, since the baby shower came a month before I thought it would, I didn't finish it quite as I wanted.  I left the edges jagged, it's actually cute in person.  The mom loved this.

i have two rows done i'll take a photo when i can i love the colors! i ran into some personal problems in my life (i have depression well bi polar) and tryed to hurt myself and was hospitalized and lost my kids for a while so that kindda comes before crocheting. though soon i should have my kids back and be happy and ready to de-stress and crochet again. i was actually thinking of working on it today maybe i will Smiley

I hope everything straightens out for you soon. 

Your blanket is looking very nice in those colors though.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making Your Own Corset? on: November 30, 2008 12:45:52 PM

This is the back. What's bothering me is how does one sew that scrap of fabric below the zigzag lacing to cover up the backside? Like this? I'm really clueless about this.

Any help is much appreciated!

A lot of times, this is integrated into the corset, and is attached through the lining and to the inner layer.  Now, if you don't want to tear it apart (and I know I hate doing that) you can attach it to the inside of your corset next to the grommets.  It attaches to one side, opposite side from the open edge.  The other side isn't attached.  You could just use the fabric alone, or stiffen the panel.  I have seen different things used to stiffen it, such as plastic canvas.
