The latest FO's.

I made up the sackboy.  I'm not terribly pleased with the legs, or with the white zipper.  He got finished up at a housewarming party as a gift for the home owner, so I didn't really have time to fix the bits I wasn't pleased with.  The zipper works, there's a small fabric pocket behind it that I sewed in, big enough for a few coins or maybe a Starburst or something.  I vaguely tried to thread-joint the legs so that he could sit, but the recipient took the photo for me a few days ago and doesn't seem to want to try to pose Sackboy at all, so I may never know if it worked.  I was pretty pleased with how the fingers turned out (though I realize they're hard to see in the photo).

I made some patterns for my DH for Valentine's Day.  First there's the "Love is the Word" pattern from Pixie Kitten and then there's the Corazoncitos pattern from Owly and finally the Love Letter envelope from Lion Brand.  They all worked up pretty easily, though I was a bit surprised with the hearts that the mid-sized one ended up not much bigger than the small one (maybe it's just that my big one ended up huge!)  It looks nice strung together as a door hanging though, so I don't really mind.  The letters for Love were a bit fiddly, too.  I added a small buttonhole to the Love Letter envelope so that it can be closed, though I didn't sew the little heart on quite right for it to work very easily.

(I will upload a photo of the envelope here as soon as I can find it to take a picture of!)

And finally, we have the Soot Sprite that I was going to make ages ago and just got around to.  I used the Makurokurosuke pattern from Moon's Creations.  I had to trim the fun fur quite a bit when I was done as it ended up entirely too long, but I think he's quite cute now.  My 10 month old son likes to throw him around the room.

Wow, those are all really awesome. I've never played Little Big Planet, but I still think sackboy is so cute. When I saw the promotional posters in Game Stop, I just knew some craftster was going to make him.

The Valentines are awesome too. I really love how you corcheted the word "Love," and the hearts are just too adorable.

Love the soot sprite too! I just watched My Neighbor Totoro for the first time with my 5-year-old nephew, and we loved it! He thought the soot sprites were the cutest things. He said he thinks he has some in his room. Grin
