21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mu-Chan the Theraphosa Blondi Plush on: July 23, 2009 05:43:40 PM
For those who don't know Theraphosa Blondi is a type of spider. A Bird-eating (or "Goliath" ) spider to be exact.
Mu-chan is based on a friend of mine's original character's pets. > . > Yes I'm weird enough to make a fictional character's pet just for fun.

This is my first version of Mu-Chan

This version took about 5 & 1/2 to 6 hours to complete and was based off two different patterns and some making it up as I went. This version is made of worsted weight yarn, black crochet thread, pipe cleaners, and fiberfill. Lots of fiberfill.

Well I wasn't happy with how she looked, so I spent another hour or two looking at this photo of a real T.Blondi and decided to give it another go.
So another 6 & 1/2 to 7 hours worth of work and Mu-chan version 2.0 was finished.

I have to say that I am in love with how she turned out. <3 I'm in the process of writing out the pattern I made for this one. (as if I wait any longer the scribble notes I took while working on her will become illegible or stolen by my 3 year old).
This version is made with worsted weight yarn, some beads I had laying around, fiberfill, pipe cleaners for the fangs, and floral wire armature for her legs and pedipalps.

A few weeks later she complained about being hungry so I made her some origami cicada bugs to munch on. She seems happier now. xD

Those are so fun! The Poison one is my favorite. Makes me want to make some for myself. x3
Awesome job though! Keep it up. :3
Oh, what exactly are the little bead looking things in the poison bottle?

Yeah. Instead of doing the macrame on the two center strands I doubled them up on the ring. :3
Thanks It was tons of fun to make. Cheesy
25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dnacatcher: the double-helix dreamcatcher. [Pic Obese] on: May 08, 2009 06:17:35 AM
So a little story behind this. I'm a very vivid dreamer and one night I had a dream one of my Original Characters gave this "dnacatcher" to one of my friend's characters who is a geneticist. Well When I told my friend about the dream she said if I ever made one she'd buy it from me. Well I had planned to talk details with her and figure out what colors she'd like and my muses said "No, you will work on this NOW!" So off to my yarn stash I went. And thus the project started.

Progress of the "DNA ring".

Finished ring.

With the webbing. (My favorite part to make)

Dangly charm for the center strand, pre-bake, sand & paint.

Finished charm. Yes, it is in-fact a syringe/hypodermic needle.

Progress of the dangly strands. They are ungodly long at this point.

After trimming them down a bit.

Outside strands are turned to DNA!

And we're finished!

Up-close of the charm.

All in all about 3 hours of work and $1.57 in supplies I didn't already have in my possession. This was so much fun to make! Cheesy
It is currently packaged in a bubble envelope awaiting shipping. Also inside the envelope is a surprise for my friend. I'll edit and post a pic of it once she has it. x3

I just love seeing how everyone organizes their craft spaces. It gives me so much inspiration for my own space. x3
I adore the color scheme!

The Guava and Watermelon-bubblegum ones look tasty. I'd try and take a bite then realize it's soap. xD
I bet the smell fantastic though!

I love seeing how other people design their craft space! It gives me idea for when I have space to make my own happy place.  Cheesy
I especially love the curtains for hiding everything. -makes mental note to do that- Cheesy
