Finished anteater is 23 cm (9 inches) long. His
can be outside - ready to eat, or hidden. You need to check when your
toy will be ready, but my anteater's tongue unrolls automatically when
there are ants nearby :) Ok, maybe not really, but I said so to my son.
Now he is checking every morning if the ants are near or not :)
What could be a better addition to
your reaper costume than a death of rats sitting on your
shoulder? Actually you don't even need a costume to carry him around,
can you imagine the look on people faces when you walk with him on your
shoulder :) I am sure all the rodents from the neighborhood would be
gone in a minute.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you would mash up two best things ever - Star wars and Winnie the Pooh, if you would ask me that question few weeks ago I would say It's impossible, but than I started to wonder... Robin - Han Solo, Winnie the Pooh - Chewbacca and who would be Eeyore... my favorite AT-AT of course. It all led to a 'missing AT-eeyore tail photo session' that you can see above.
Finished bear when standing is 33 cm (13 inches)tall. He can sit or
stand because of the doll joints I placed in his legs. Other materials
you might want to have before starting on this project: D hook (3,5
mm), 10 mm safety eyes, small gray button -for his bag that is fully
functional - you can place your small treasures in there, like honey or
ammunition :) For my fur yarn I used 51 % acrylic, 49 % wool yarn
that measures 262 yards (240 meters) for 100 g, Gauge 17.5 to 22 st is 4
inches (10 cm) than I used the dog brush to make it more furry. for
all the additional elements I used 55% cotton yarn which measures 174
yards (159 meters) for 50 g, weight Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi), Gauge 24 to
30 st is 4 inches (10 cm)
made these two cute mushrooms for my sons and they loved them from the
first sight. They are using them as a pillows. I loved this project for
so many different reasons: it was very easy with small number of parts
(so not too much sewing), the finished toy is relatively big especially
for my tiny sons. Also the mushrooms can be made in so many different
colors. I was
thinking about brown, blue and green, but finally decided to use yellow.
To be honest I am a bit sad I only have two sons and made only two
mushrooms, maybe I should make some more kids/mushrooms :) Anyway I
would love to see the blue mushroom, so if you are making one in blue
please, please send me the photos! :)
Crochet griffin when finished is more or less 32 cm
(12.6 inches) from the front paws to the end of tail. The griffin is a
creature with the back of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle - I
know eagles don't have ears like that :) I just couldn't resist making
those floppy ears for him. If you want you can skip them, he will be
cute anyway I give a guarantees for that :)
PS. I think I will turn it into 'mythological creatures' series. I
really enjoyed making this little fellow ;)
I recently moved and wanted to make something special for my new home
and myself, this bouquet is the effect of my work. I placed it in the
hallway, so everyone who enters my house can see what a twisted freaky
nerdy crochet lover is leaving here :) If you too feel a bit nerdy or
freaky this project is made just for you!
Crochet alien xenomorph, when finished, is 21 cm tall (8.2 inches).
franchise was one of the movies that made a huge impact on me when I
was younger. I love the whole series, always had and always will, and as
a huge fan I am so proud to present my newest creation . After making
he went straight to my private display and I am not giving him to
anyone, anyone! :) I think he is scary with just a hint of cuteness in
him which makes him so perfect, at least for me!
Although I am
not giving my finished alien to anyone, anyone! I wrote the pattern and hope you will make a good use of it :)
This pattern is for the medium advanced crocheters but if you are ready
to try I am always ready to help. You should know basic crochet stitches
including chain, slip stitch, single crochet, decrease, increase and
how to start with magic ring.
I've put wires in his arms, legs
and tail, but if you are doing this as a toy for a child (My little son
loves monsters and aliens, but he is afraid of squirrels, true story:) I
strongly recommend you to skip wiring, make a safe plush toy instead
and sew everything twice as firmly as you would normally do (especially
nails and teeth).
Princess when finished is 25 cm (9.8 inches). When I started this
project I couldn't decide which princess I like best, so I used a few
things from each one. From Aurora - the sleeping beauty, she has got
the beautiful dress, from Rapunzel - long braided hair and from princess
Sofia the first (do you know her?) face and hair color.
There are 4 lucky cats in our group: Lucky (yellow one), Hello lucky cat
(white), Nyan lucky cat (grey) and Lucky cat in a hat (black). Lucky
will bring good fortune to the receiver, as he is inspired on
maneki-neko Japanese cat. Hello lucky cat will bring love and beauty.
Nyan is for happiness and Lucky cat in the hat for crazy adventures :)
I made those cats for a very sick little girl and I hope from al my heart they will bring her all that plus lots and lots of health!
Pattern for the cats is now available in my shop :
I've made this little heart pillow for charity auction. The pillow is 20 cm long and 18 cm height. It's made from cotton/acrylic yarn. Pattern for this pillow (without the inscription - which is made from chains and was extremely time consuming to make, as you may have quested :) will be available for free here on my blog very soon.I hope more heart pillows will be made by you, and maybe even some for charity reasons too.
