1  Crocheted and then felted! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Blueice on: May 23, 2008 10:11:40 PM
I have been experimenting with machine felting.  I made myself a folder for my pastel pencils combining felting and crochet.  This is a photo of the outside

...and the inside.

A close up of the inside crochet, and with pencils

I also made myself a pair of slippers - again I crocheted them and then put them in the washing machine.  For some strange reason they turned out different sizes.  They still fit, one foot is just different to the other. Roll Eyes 

I started out with a flat crocheted piece, then sewed it up to form slippers.

At this stage they were enormous!  (That is my washing basket it's sitting on!)

Thanks for looking.   Smiley

2  Amigurumi Nativity Set in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Blueice on: May 23, 2008 09:39:59 PM
I made this set for Christmas, but have procrastinated about posting it here! Roll Eyes  It took awhile but was great to do. I have wanted to make a Nativity Scene for ages - I was so pleased with the finished product. The pattern is from Gourmet Crochet.

Here is a close up

Another close up - this time the three wise men.

I added two shepherds to go with the lamb.  These weren't in the pattern, but I made them on the same principle as Joseph.

Thanks for having a look - hope you like them.

My partner and I "swapped" our packages on Wednesday afternoon - we live in the same city!  I received a lovely bag of goodies all wrapped in purple.
Here they are all together:-

I love butterflies and little green dragonfly made this gorgeous earring and necklace set:-

The black beads even have butterflies!
She also made an extra pair of earrings for me just because they were colours I liked - they are lovely and I'm wearing them right now!

I will be hanging these cute butterflies in my sewing/craft corner!

And last but certainly not least these fantastic candles are decorated with beaded fairies and, you guessed it, butterflies.  Did I say I LOVE butterflies!?!
A close up of the fairy - isn't she cute?

Thank you little green dragonfly for your beautiful creations - it's been a great swap.  Smiley

Wow! I have just received my lovely package from uknowuluvit.  Cheesy
WARNING:- Picture heavy!
This is a photo of all the things in the can.

A gorgeous pink crocheted scarf - my daughter fell in love with it!  She is wearing it right now!

The Christmas ornaments will be going on the tree as soon as we get it.  They are lovely - I really like the little tree.

A crocheted wreath to hang on a door knob.

A cute little snowflake pouch with lots of stitch markers in it - I have already used one of these!  They are great!

This pot holder will come in handy - very nicely knitted.

My favourite thing of all - elf shoe with chrissy earings - so cute.

Also some American candy - that was my son's favourite.
Thanks uknowuluvit.  This has been a great swap.

5  I've caught the amigurumi bug! (Picture heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Blueice on: October 05, 2007 11:52:53 PM
Here are a few amigurumi I have made recently.

It was Father's Day here in Oz a few weeks ago and I made my husband this little "Super Dad" doll.

I was inspired by Owly's super hero amigurumi (here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=175399.msg1809537#msg1809537), and made up the pattern as I went along.

This little bird was my first amigurumi. Pattern here: http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/02/19/birds-of-a-feather/. Mine doesn't look as good as the ones in the pattern, I'm not sure why.

I made this flying pig for my daughter a few years ago, before I'd even heard of amigurumi. The pattern is here: http://www.roxycraft.com/Crochet_Aerial_Pig.htm

I made this hippo for my daughter's birthday last month. Here's the pattern: http://www.bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/03/12/hungry-hungry-hippo/

My son would love a dachshund and this was as close as I could get! I used Planetjunes wonderful pattern: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7036796

Hope you enjoyed looking! They were fun to make.

Thanks for the comments on the owl, everyone. Smiley
Decibel - it's 12cm (approx. 5 inches) and made out of hand-dyed 100% wool felt.
This has been a great first swap, I've had so much fun. I think I'll be back for the next round!
Here are the pictures of the amazing bird indeliblechange sent me.
First the gorgeous little box with dolphin charm (love dolphins)

And inside the most adorable tiny bird on its very own little cushion

This gives an idea of just how tiny this little guy is

Thanks again indeliblechange for a wonderful swap!!
I'm so glad you like my owl.

7  My Waldorf-style Mermaid in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Blueice on: August 23, 2007 12:18:26 AM
I made this mermaid last year and she is one of my favourite creations. I based the pattern off a waldorf doll and her felt tail is handmade felt (made by a friend) and her hair is made from mohair wool. She is made from all natural materials except for some of her hair. I made her with the idea of her being a play companion for a little girl. I have since sold her on Ebay. Hope you like her! Smiley
