Vote for me

Vote for me

This is totally a shameless plug. I’m in a design contest run by amigurumipatterns.net .

They are doing their annual contest, and this year the theme is fantasy creatures. I designed two this year.

Betty the Yeti:

Front view.jpg

and

Thalyssa the Chthulu

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Yes they both have eyelashes. I love putting eyelashes on things.

Anyway, I would love for you to vote for at least one of mine, if not both.

You can vote here. Betty should be in the first image.

One of the voters will win 100 mini balls of yarn so there is something in it for you too.

I will be back to my regularly scheduled pattern posting soon. I think Sister Margaretta will be next.

Bride of Frankenstein – Free Pattern

Halloween is almost upon us. I’m done with the mini-monsters and I will be moving on to Mythical Creatures for an online contest. I’m still typing up the patterns on a regular basis. I’ll try to keep to my current schedule and post them regularly.

I’m also teaching myself how to make soap. It was a project with the kids that I am expanding on.

img_3403

Ohio State Soap is a must in my area

img_3397

Christmas Jello soap.

img_3392

Super cute owl soap.

img_3382

First soaps with the kids.

The goat’s milk soap doesn’t take the colors as well. I’m not sure whether I like the goat’s milk vs. the glycerin that is clearer so the colors are brighter. I am also adding scents, but very lightly as I don’t like strong scents.

Here’s your Bride of Frankenstein Pattern. Again it hasn’t been tested. Join the mailing list for exclusive content.

You can’t really tell from this picture, but I gave him glow in the dark teeth. At night he is spooky, but awesome.

Free Pattern Friday – Billy from Saw

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen all my mini-monsters. I love scary movies. I love October because it ends with Halloween. I’ve been having a lot fun with these guys. I’ve made 10 that will be typed up and make it onto the blog. Samara, the Babadook and Freddy Krueger are already up.

The movie series Saw pits the victims against elaborately constructed “Games” to make them learn the value of life. These games are often introduced by a ventriloquist puppet.

Next in my series of mini movie monsters we have The Babadook from the movie of the same name. Your finished little monster will be about 5″ from top of his hat to the end of his outfit.

I find him super cute and not creepy at all. Again not tested, so let me know if you have problems. Coming soon we should have Jason, Michael Myers, Pennywise and Twisty. At least that is my 1st 6. I’ve sketched 6 more. I’m working on Ghostface now. I had to rework him as he looked too much like Jack Skellington.
