Preview of Plex

Standard

Once again I have gone overboard with the size. Here’s Plex’s head. It’s 10″ tall and 13″ wide. I have no idea how big this thing is going to end up being.

Pattern will be posted as soon as I am done.

The bacon scarf

Standard

20111026-214201.jpg

So a friend of mine wanted me to make him a bacon scarf. This is the end result after multiple tries. I wanted it to look crackly and bubbly like cooked bacon.

I’m not super happy with the color choices I used, but I didn’t want it to skew too red. I used I love this yarn in burnt pumpkin and Vanna’s choice yarn in beige to get the coloring.

He wore to the wineries last weekend and it was a big hit. We named in Kevin the bacon scarf.

I hope to have the pattern up on my at my etsy shop soon.

Happy crocheting.

Working on Foofa and other pictures.

Standard

I know I haven’t posted in quite awhile. I can’t seem to tear myself away from crocheting to actually do a post. I am working on Foofa to add to the Yo Gabba Gabba collection. As soon as she is done I will post the pattern here for free. I just need to do the feet.

I’ve also been working on a couple of other things and with the help of the fabulous lphotographie, LLC, I have the following fabulous pictures to show off:

Annabelle is pink and sweet and definitely ready to wheel around. Her smile lets you know she is definitely up to something. The listing for Annabelle is at http://www.etsy.com/listing/79899970/annabelle-the-little-pink-robot    

Soon to come there will be Hermie:

 

And I was having some fun with the pigs from Angry Birds:

 

I will try to be better about posting.

Assembly

 

Pin face and horns in place before attaching to ensure proper placement. I like to sew the pupils on to the eyes before I sew the eyes onto the body.

This is easier if the head is stuffed.

Stuff Body, Sew legs to bottom feet facing forward. The unused leg stitches with form a center seam. Sew up the seam between the legs.

Stuff the arms up to the bottom of the last hunter green band. Fold open edges together and sew to the sides of the body two rows down from beginning of top hunter green band

Have fun, take him everywhere because he is huge.

Mardi Gras Fun and the Boob Scarf

Standard

Boob Scarf - Crochet Pattern Instructions

The boob scarf

This weekend was the annual Grand Parade for Mardi Gras in St. Louis. We don’t go anywhere near as crazy as New Orleans, but we give it a go. Last year at a friend’s urging I came up with these for us to wear.

Those got us a lot of attention and quite a few beads, which are always a plus at the parade.

This year I decided to change thing up and make a couple of different versions for the parade.

They were pretty easy to modify. I used iron on appliques from Wal-Mart to dress them up.The piercing is actually an old gold hoop that I had laying around that was missing its friend. Unfortunately, that was lost pretty early on and I had to re-pierce while at the parade with found objects.

Needless to say fun was had by all. For your own boob scarf go to  http://www.etsy.com/listing/62272879/boob-scarf-crochet-pattern-instructions for the original recipe pattern.
Until next time.

Sorry for the lack of posts. I had a few personal issues. Mainly, I had to put my dog down and I haven’t felt like doing a whole lot of anything. However, I have a new pattern ready to go to be the free feature for February. She should be uploaded by this weekend. So this is your last chance to get your free Sheldon Pattern as I will be taking him down when I post Raquel Ray. Here’s a sneak preview:
