One of my most recent projects is a custom Eeyore which was very fun to make. I also decided with this one that I would take some pictures as it was progressing just to make it a little more exciting and show some more of the "behind the scenes" action. There were definitely some new challenges with Eeyore which were fun to overcome. I had never made an ami of this type before, never made a tail, and never had to attach the neck the way I did with Eeyore, so it was a bit different than some others.
Here are a couple of pictures of Eeyore's head. I normally do not close off the head and have it as one piece, but since I needed the neck to be attached differently because body isn't facing the same direction as the head like others I closed it off. I was worried that it might not look quite as neat, but the little crop of hair at the top tidied it up nicely.
Here is a quick picture before I connected the head and body and added the finishing touches like the tail and hair. Below this is the final picture of Eeyore. He is now in the mail and happily on his way to his owner.
After quite a few weeks of work, or rather, me putting things off and finding other random things to do with myself, I finally completed the Saw Billy I was making for a friend. Most of you guys will remember him as the little puppet that would ride into the room in the Saw movies and deliver Jigsaw's cryptic messages. It was a lot of fun to make, and a lot of little pieces to make and sew, but overall it was a good learning experience. In this top picture, you will see he is riding my daughter's tricycle...I just thought that was appropriate, while also be mildly entertaining. The pictures below are just to give a closer look and an alternate angle. As with most of the other things, I did not use a pattern, but there may be a few things I used a pattern for coming in the future, and I can't wait to share them with you.
Hello everybody, this is my first blog post. I hope everyone enjoys reading the things to come and comes back often to see how things are going. Since some of you may not be familiar with me or my crochet work quite yet, I will share a few things about myself as well as a few of my favorite items I have made so far. My name is Veronica, I am 24 and currently a stay at home mom. I enjoy a lot of things including cooking, crocheting, singing (anything involving music really), and collecting rubber duckies. So, it is possible you will see a few duckies and possibly recipes on occasion, and I will attempt to keep them somewhat organized for you.
A Few Cute Little Hats!
Over the winter I got a chance to do a few very adorable hat projects. Now that winter is over I most likely will not get to crochet any more hats for a while, but still wanted to share a couple of my favorites. That is my daughter, Violet, modeling the hat in the top left and bottom picture. The top left picture is a custom Minnie Mouse hat I made for a friend. The top right picture, is a custom Black Spiderman Hat that I made for the same friend. The bottom picture is a custom Foofa (from Yo Gabba Gabba) hat I made for my daughter. All of these hats were of my own design, patterns may possibly come soon if anyone is interested.
Here are a couple of my favorite crocheted amigurumi. As with the hats, all of these were also all of my own design and I did not use a pattern. On occasion I will use a pattern for things, but I will specify if a pattern has been used and link to said pattern on here. The top left is a red Dr. Who Dalek that I made for a friend. The top right is Homer Simpson in his underwear drinking a Duff beer, also for a friend. The bottom is a custom Steely Mc. Beam that I made and sold. Most of the features on my amigurumi are done in felt.
These are just a couple of the unique scarves that I have made. The first (left), is a Circuit Board Scarf I made for a friend. I love the way it turned out, but it was a lot of work and there will most likely not be any replicas in the future. The second (right) on the other hand, is a Hello Kitty Scarf I made and sold. This one I would love to do again, so just let me know if you are interested in one. Also, ignore the horrible picture of me. As with the hats, I probably won't get to make a whole lot more scarves until fall comes around again, but I can't wait!
I love making baby blankets. This is how I started off crocheting. My grandma taught me how to make a granny square blanket when I was about 7 and that is where it all started. The one on the left is a Yellow and Pink Bobble Stitch blanket with Ruffled Edges. That one as well as everything else you are seeing on this first post is of my own pattern. The second is a custom Blessed Be Man (a fantastic band, look him up on Facebook) for a friend. This one is all single crochet's and I charted out the pattern. This was my first blanket of this type and I love how it turned out.
Well, that is just a little bit of what I have done recently. Thank you to everybody who stuck this post through to the end, I appreciate it. Check back for a lot more posts in the future!
