Finger Ninjas

11 Jan

I’ve been neglecting you, sorry!

I’ll post the holiday presents I made as soon as I find my camera again.

In the meantime, here’s a quick project I made for a friend. He saw this picture of ninja finger puppets on Deviant Art, and it looked easy, so I got to it! Of course, I ended up ripping it out & starting over far more times than I thought I would, just like every other project ever, lol.

Finger Ninjas

CUTE, RIGHT?

I wrote down the pattern in case other people wanted them – and I know you do, so here it is!

I used Red Heart Super Saver, which is a worsted weight (4 – medium on the standard yarn weight chart), and a size F (3.75 mm) hook.
Instructions are in US terms.

Start w/magic circle, chain 2, 9 dc (double crochet) in circle. Join w/a slip st into 2nd beginning chain.

Next round: Ch 2, dc in ea of next 7 dc, ch 2, join w/a sl st into 2nd beg ch.

Next round: Ch 2, Dc in ea of next 7 dc, 2 dc in ch 2 space, join w/ sl st in 2nd beg ch, finish off.
Go forth now and attack, my minions!

My first custom plushie!

30 Aug

GUYS! I forgot to tell you – Bonta Kun arrived in his new home! It’s my first amigurumi that I’ve done without a pattern, just started with the head and started shaping as I went (I started with the bear head, the hat was made and sewn on later). I’m ridiculously happy with it – and fortunately, so is she!

I KNOW, RIGHT?
I’ve got more planned, but now I have to get back to knitting up Jayne hats for the Can’t Stop the Serenity charity event here in AZ.

Crocheting Muffins

LEARNING HOW TO DO A FRENCH KNOT! FINALLY!

Seriously guys, I’m almost 50 (this October), and I started embroidering when I was in grade school. I read the instructions in the kits and books diligently, but the hand-drawn black-and-white illustrations just didn’t help me in the slightest.

But now, we have the interntez, and this wonderful lady and her blog!

Stitch School: french knot

I don’t know if any of you watch “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”, but trust me in that if you’re making a Derpy Hooves hat for someone, it must have a muffin. Following the look of some of the muffins in fan art, I made this:

OK, sorry, it’s a crappy webcam photo … when I finish the hat, maybe I’ll remember to post a pic of both!   😀

Cupcake Hats

6 Apr

I’ve been working diligently trying to get some Lego brick pincushions presentable enough to post, but it’s still tax season, and we’ve hit the “Oh crap, it’s April, I should get that stuff done” endgame, lol.

Then I remembered … my non-Facebook fans have not seen my cupcake hats!!!! (yes, the extra exclamation points are necessary)

SO CUTE!

So there’s my finished pieces, my son Vincent out-cunning Jayne (it’s a “Firefly” thing), and me in my first non-sprinkled prototype. And yes, they’re in my Etsy store! So far just finished hats, but I’ll be working on formatting the pattern soon.

Now to queue up my Hulu+ queue and get to crocheting some Legos!
