Crochet Rug

Cooler temperatures have finally made it to our part of the World. It has really put me into a crochet bigger projects mood. Besides I really want to start using up as much of my yarn stash as possible. I bought a lot of acrylic yarn when I first started crocheting but since then have […]

Halloween Cthulhu

My husband wanted an orange/black Cthulhu for Halloween. Here he is. I used cotton yarn which doesn’t work as well for amigurumi as acrylic yarn in my opinion. My yarn also kept splitting since I was using such a small hook. Very frustrating but worth it. He is a cute fella(Cthulhu AND my husband that […]

Mini Jayne Cobb Hat

The Jayne Cobb hat is the infamous hat given to Jayne Cobb – the gun-toting, ready for a throw down crew member of the Serenity. Firefly was such a great show and a mighty shame it was cancelled after just 13 episodes. But what a 13 episodes it was! In fact, fans helped to ensure […]

Farm Town Amigurumi

I admit that I enjoy the Facebook game Farm Town a little too much. It’s easy and a lot of fun to play. I get so excited when I level to see what wonderful items I’ve unlocked. I decided that I should make my Farm Town farmer in yarn through crochet. So here is my […]

Mario Inspired Amigurumi

On Craftster.org, they had a Mario Bros. swap so naturally I just had to sign up for it. My partner’s favorite characters were Princess Peach and Yoshi. After creating Peach, my daughter wanted one and I decided the first one was too big. I made another one for the swap and then a third one […]

Snellie the Snail

My daughter is a Spongebob Squarepants fan. About a week ago, she came into the living room and asked me to make her a girl snail. I knew she was watching Spongebob in the bedroom and I was familiar with Gary but not a female snail. But apparently there is and her name is Snellie. […]

Pizza

I am on a play food kick lately. It started with the crochet hamburger I did a few weeks back. I thought that pizza would make an excellent play crochet food so I set out to whip up a small personal size pizza one evening. I’m going to start jotting down notes when I crochet […]

Cthulhu

When I first started crocheting again last summer, I attempted to make a Cthulhu for him since he is a gamer. My attempt failed and I gave up. I recently bought Creepy Cute Crochet that has a Cthulhu pattern. I gave it a try and with some minor changes came up with this little monster. […]

Red Lions

I believe that if you can dream it, you can crochet it. Take these red lions. My daughter decided she wanted a red lion, so I made the bigger one. She told me it was too big. She loves small things. I tried again and made it smaller. She was well pleased with the smaller […]

Batghan

One of my new favorite activities is craft swaps. It’s so much fun to craft with a purpose especially when Christmas is too far off to worry about, and no baby blankets are on the horizon. In the Spring I took part in The Office swap where we made our partners something knitted/crocheted around the […]
