i joined this when it first came up but haven't yet had a chance to browse or pledge my commitment

now the birthday season is upon me

bf=sept 20=
then mom
bil 1=
cousin and the fun starts

for my bf. i'm at a loss, any help? hes a huge gamer and comic book fan,we're going to comic con in two weeks. also we live together so he tends to get most of what i make.

i'm thinking...cat toys for our 4 fur babies? dalek, cybermen...maybe something needle felted  Huh its always so hard for him

for my mom ill prolly be making her earrings, she loves funky earrings and i tend to make them for her bday and Christmas.

for my little bil, he's turning 14, has a high functioning form of autism. he also love vid-games i think his all time fav is still Zelda, so maybe a plush link? but i would love something that he could take to school...

and as i said the fun starts, im also doing the major Halloween swap, and trying to finish a commission. does anyone else have the problem of trying to make something that already exists therefor it has to be "perfect"?

plush link for your bil sounds awesome !  Cheesy

for your bf, why not do the same and make like a plush...whatever his favorite comic character is. You can also make a mosiac picture or like a glittered version. (lol I made a glittered version of spider-man for a friend of mine who loves him and he loves it. Even if it was glitterfied  Wink )

 I am now enlisted to make a male friend a Yarmulke. It's also know as a kippah. And he wants a particular design on it. I don't have a crochet pattern. I'm going to work this out one row at a time! It has to be slightly curved at the top. making a flat round circle will not do. Does anyone have a pattern? I'm using #3crochet cotton, and a steel needle size1/2.75. The designs will be embroidered later. All I need now is to get the increases spaced right.

In another piece of my day, I am working on finishing up some samples that will be in craft kits for my E... The samples will be some of my holiday gifts.
I can't show pictures yet. But I will soon, after I am finished with them!

Sooo, now my stepmom is (I think) buying a costume for my baby girl (they tend to do things like this on a whim), which means I'll have two costumes for her. It's okay because we go to a fall festival at daycare/preschool and then something with my SIL (it changes each year, could be traditional trick-or-treating, could be a community event). This got me thinking however, that maybe I should scrap the Handy Manny idea for my boy and make him two costumes - a pirate to go with the mermaid costume (if my stepmom couldn't help herself) and a farmer to go with the chick/duck costume my mom is making. I don't sew though so any ideas on being as cheap as possible in little man's costumes? He wears school uniforms so I don't have much in the way of cast-offs I can sacrifice.

Farmer: Jeans, little plaid shirt, and a hat of some kind. Just check out the thrift stores.
