Yoshi

It was a Christmas present for a friend. She has a small collection of Yoshis, so I thought I’d add to it. This pattern is available for free on Ravelry. It’s Mary Smith’s Mini Yoshi Gamer Friend pattern. It looks a lot better than what I have pictured here.

Side note: I figured out my Photobucket/directly uploading to the WordPress server problem.

I really need to work on my sewing skills. The arm placement is just so off. I just don’t understand how people do it, because it’s a tiny little piece and you don’t want the yarn to show. It makes sewing difficult. Sewing pre-stuffed is my go-to method, followed by stuffing the yarn inside, but at times this is not possible.

My favorite part is that little shell in the back. He looks much better from the side too!

The arms look better from this angle, like he’s waving. Hello! Good bye!

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Secret Santa Fun!

I’m sorry for the lack of updates! The Christmas crocheting season is definitely in full swing. I only have completed ONE person. Only 3 more to go. Eep!

I wanted to take a quick break and share what I got for a Secret Santa gift, because it’s so adorable. 😀 I signed up for the Reddit Secret Santa, and mentioned that I like to crochet. My Santa really went with that. Look at the neat stuff I got (brag, brag, brag, sorry). 😛

I hope you have a lovely holiday season, and you are much further along than I am with your gift projects. I’ll be posting my projects once Christmas is over, so I don’t ruin the surprise for people.

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Minecraft Spider

Some of my friends are very into Minecraft. I have tried and didn’t get into it. Maybe it’s the open world kind of concept that I don’t really like. I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Anyway, as a request, one of my friends asked for something from the game. I present you with a spider!

Even if it is a very blocky spider, it’s still creepy, right? Gah, the shivers are involuntary. It’s probably that red face.

This spider pattern can be found here on Ravelry. It was written by Becca de Kroon, who has a lot of really cute gaming amigurumi patterns.

Actually, there isn’t that much crocheting involved. Just a lot of sewing. Basically, you crochet a lot of rectangles and the legs, and then you use this plastic grid material to form a square.

Ta-da, cube formed! That’s how the spider gets a nice block shape- otherwise, it would probably end up looking a lot rounder.

The legs and the middle connecting piece weren’t bad either. It kind of looks like a person here, right? Hahaha. 😉 I thought it was humorus looking.

I wonder what my next big project shall be? I haven’t made anything for myself in a while. Maybe I should get on that.

Happy crochet!

A Supernatural Christmas

Tomorrow is Christmas! Merry Christmas! Is everyone ready? On the news this morning, they were saying that stores are thinking there will be a huge wave of customers today to do all their last minute shopping. I hope you’re not one of those people stuck doing the shopping today, but good luck if you are.

Here’s one of the presents I made this year! Since I have already given this present to my friend, I can show you. She is a huge fan of Supernatural, so I made these little figures for her of Sam, Dean, and Bobby. She says they look like Voo-doo dolls. What do you think?

I love Bobby’s beard, but I think beards are VERY attractive in general. 🙂 Sam’s hair was more out of control than I had anticipated, but that’s just what his hair looks like… sort of. To make it, you just make a small cap (like Dean’s hair), and then pull loose yarn through, and then you kind of trim it out in a nice haircut. Most important thing I learned from this: I should never be a hair stylist.

This pattern was from WonderAnn on Etsy. There was also Castiel and Lucifer in the pattern, but I only had time to make those three.

Enjoy a lovely holiday!

Gotta Crochet Em All!

Thank you everyone for entering my giveaway! I’m so excited to give away some yarn. You can still enter by leaving a comment on the giveaway post! 😀

When I was in 5th grade, a lot of my friends suddenly got GameBoy Colors and either Pokemon Red or Blue. Then this whole Pokemon thing just blew up: TV shows, games, trading cards, action figures, etc. Yes, I was one of the many 10-year-olds who joined in on this phenomenon. It still continues today (there’s like 500 Pokemon now or something?). I dropped off the wagon after 250 Pokemon, and have no idea what is happening with all these new games.

Despite falling off the wagon, I do still get a little giddy when I see Pokemon related to the first 250 species. 🙂 Recently, I came across this blog, Pokemon Crochet Challenge, in which Winnie, the writer, is trying to crochet all of the first 151 Pokemon. I’m very excited to follow her progress! She has some really good ones so far. Here’s a sample:

Aren’t they just adorable? I always picked Bulbasaur as my first Pokemon, because he’s
a. awesome
b. freakin’ cute
c. extremely useful against the first two gyms
d. going to evolve into a giant plant.

So, definitely check out this blog!

S&T Sunday: Oh the Huge Manatee!

Sometimes, the trivia team I’m on calls themselves, “Oh the Huge Manatee,” because one particular member really loves manatees. Manatees are like the elephants of the ocean, so I’m okay with that.

Since he likes manatees so much, I made him one. Ta-da!

If you’re a fan of manatees, or even if you’re now, here’s the pattern.

Also, on an unrelated note, SUPERBOWL SUNDAY! Woo~ Woo~ Woo~! And for all my non-American readers, Superbowl Sunday is the finals in American football. Happy Sunday everyone!

S&T Sunday: Lab Animals

Two more lab presents: lab animals!

The receiver of this kitty is a self-proclaimed future cat lady, but she has no cats! I really like how this cat is just a large stuffed ball with ears, legs, and a tail- it’s so cute! The new lab cat:

The pattern can be found here.

Next up, another animal, a snake. It’s suppose to be able to wrap around a pen, but the head is too big and heavy. Either way, look at that little face. ❤

This pattern is available on Ravelry, here.
