31  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / bob-omb and birdie hackey sack(pic heavy) on: March 26, 2007 06:16:03 PM
The title says it all. Cheesy

bob-omb, I saw it on someone's Wists and had to try it.

my crocheted hackey sack, before it grew wings Smiley

My birdie! Oh how it makes me laugh, and oh how much it looks like a fly...

Failed attempt at an action shot...well...I had fun...

close up of birdie

uh oh, you'd better get away, I think he's about to blow!
I'd love any comments. I basically made both of these at school with no pattern. I can't read crochet patterns. They were tons of fun, and that birdie can truly be used as a hackey sack if you don't mind abusing stuffed animals. I'm a vegetarian and I'll do it, so I think most people shouldn't mind. Thanks for looking!
32  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Envious Handbag on: March 19, 2007 06:39:59 PM
I made this bag for a swap, and absolutely fell in love with it. I sent it off, but it was no doubt my favorite item, and the item which took me the longest. It is supposed to represent envy.

Thanks for looking. I'd love any comments. I don't usually show my bags to anyone except my friends, and their comments tend to be a bit biased. Cheesy

Edited, because I realized how tired I was when I originally wrote it Smiley
My friend gave me an idea, when I told him about the challenge, and I tried it! I love it, despite it's silliness.

This is my first challenge, so any comments would be lovely. All I've gotten so far is my mom's smile, although that is lovely. Thanks for looking.
34  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I scream for Ice Cream(crocheted, that is) on: January 18, 2007 08:38:27 AM
My best friend, for her 16th birthday, specifically asked for nothing for her birthday, so naturally I had to make her something silly. I was working on another project at the time which involved ice cream, so I came up with this idea. I was amazed and very happy at how realistic it turned out. All the yarn I used I dyed with Kool-aide, which just makes it more "special", quoting my mother. Still, I am very very happy with it. Cheesy
35  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I love my piggy!!!:) on: December 24, 2006 06:27:02 AM
For a christmas present this year, actually, two christmas presents, I made this piggy, and I absolutely adore him(as though you couldn't ell from my title Smiley)! So here he is:

And the best part of all is he was completely free! I got the  pattern and all the cloth from my sewing teacher last year and this year, even though I'm not taking it this year. She's very nice to the poor sewing freak Cheesy
I just have one random question, though. How do you tell if something is pic heavy? I don't know what that means...would this be pic heavy?
Thanks for looking!

Thanks for looking!
37  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Ice Age wall hanging :) on: December 22, 2006 06:42:19 PM
So, my uncle, for christmas, asked for the movie Ice Age. My family does this thing where we are each assigned a person to get a gift for, and I got him. I have a very strong dislike of buying gifts, but I decided since he'd asked for it specifically I'd get the movie, but I was also going to make something for him. There's a little bit more to this story, though. The reason he wanted the movie was he liked the funny squirrel who is constantly chasing around an acorn through out the movie. So I made him a wall hanging with Scrat(the squirrel). I love it.

That's a picture of the entire wall hanging.

And here's a picture of Scrat close up.

This is a picture of the DVD cover, with the picture I made the hanging from.
I love applique! My only problem is whether or not to put loops on the back to hang it up, and if so, how. My mom says I shouldn't, I should just let them deal with it as they please, but I'm not sure. I'd love it if I could have some advice. Thanks for looking and sorry for my incredibly long story!  Smiley
38  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Very colorful, well loved bag on: November 15, 2006 06:32:17 PM
Ha! I think I figured out how to do this! Hopefully... This is my first posting, so if there's something wrong with it, please tell me. This is actually the first bag I ever made, and I made it two years ago. It has been well used, and I love it.
     this is the front of the bag
this is the back of the bag

  and this is the pretty inside, with a bunch of funny animals Smiley
I'm sorry for the bad quality pictures, I have an absolutely awful camera.
All these are links, so I hope it works.
