My favorite owl yet :D

For some reason, I think this is my favorite owl yet. I like his colors and his shape. He’s not got a face yet- but I’ll add button eyes and a felt beak. :3

For this, I doubled the original patter. Started with 12 in the magic loop, doubled to 24, then 36. I SC’d for a long time and decided at some point to decrease to 24 with the [1SC, SC2tog]. I did a few more rounds of SC then decreased again to with [1SC, SC2Tog]. Then I stuffed him and gave him ears.

That pattern was a good starting point, I don’t even need it anymore. Just kind of decide to make an owl and go.

This owl type will be 10.00 on my Etsy shop, and the ones I showed you yesterday, the Burgundy/Gold and Mint/Gold/Burgundy will be with the 6.00 owls as soon as I set them up with wings and peepers.

Fun Fur Faux Pas

Look at this fuzzy beast. This…Was an experiment. I wanted to see how my backup plan with fun fur worked. I used it with Mint Blue to make it easy for me to deal with. It’s crazy redonk to crochet with JUST Fun fur.

I think this will suffice though.

Owl Challenge; Teeny Tiny Owl Keychain

Challenge Part One; Tiny Owl

Position on List: 7

Today’s project was a series of tiny Owls. The first one, was mine. Worked in Mint Blue and Bone. After my boyfriend and my room mate saw the owl they both decided that they would like one. I got the colors Charcoal Heather and Grey Heather approved by both of them and started to work.

Definitely a bit of trial and error. To figure out how I wanted to do the faces and wings. The pattern , for me left some room to play with. One has a cape, because my boyfriend likes Batman and he thought the colors were suitable. I’m going to be making a cape for the other gray one, too.

They seem confident that these will be successful in my shop, so I’m hoping. I’ll be whipping up a lot of these in different color schemes with different faces and stuff. I may try to do more elaborate wings and stripes and stuff. Once I get better adjusted to working with Amigurumi.

Definitely not a bad start.

it is complete! kind of

There you go! I finished that wrist cuff-band thing. I put a place for like, a button closure or perhaps a tie. Which is what those loops are for, on either end.

Also, I’ve had that bone headband done for a while- but I just now managed to close it so it’s functional. Tomorrow, once I figure if I’m going to use a button or whatever on the band, I’ll probably make more. In different colors, or maybe not- I don’t know.

I have lots of yarn to make stuff out of- I just have to find stuff to make. I’ve also started a baby blanket with that pastel yarn that I made that headwrap with. Just because I really don’t like that yarn, now that I think about it, so I’ll just use it all up on a baby blanket. Since it actually looks cute for that.

Sewing roundup!

Convertible top; A convertible top that can be worn 4 different ways. Wonderfully cute and versatile, and pretty easy to boot!

Cute over the shoulder bag; A cute bag pattern, this would be a nice beach day bag. :3

Tulip Skirt; This skirt is an adorable pattern. I can see it being gorgeous in a silky, light fabric. Maybe floral?

Men’s shirt to peplum; I love peplum shirts so much I can’t stand it. I messed up royally last time I tried, maybe I’ll try again.

Long Circle Skirt!!!!!; I LOVE circle skirts, I really need to make this.

 

Here’s a sewing roundup to inspire some sewing, these are really just too cute. Tomorrow I’m going to get a seam ripper and work on my sewing machine cover, then I need to do one of these.

Headwrap almost done!

I say ALMOST because I’m planning to attach a piece of fabric to it. Perhaps pink or blue, for contrast. If I go with pink, maybe a floral pattern. Or, light blue. I’ll check out my fabric stash tomorrow and see what may work, or I’ll go to walmart and check out some fat quarters or the discard bin.

I’m not sure what I’ll make next- Crocheting for hours at a time makes my hands feel really odd and clumsy. Maybe my next project will be a small scale knitting project. I think I’m ready to knit again after the kitty scarf ordeal. That burnt me out fairly well. xD

I’ll probably have some idea about a knitting project tomorrow. I’ll have my sewing table on the 22nd and be able to sew things again. :3

cool!

But yeah, stuff’s happening and after finals, it’s very likely that lots of stuff will be happening. I’m going to take a couple of semesters off to indulge my hobbies and interests before I get caught up in special courses and mathematics.

Second Head Band!

Went teal this time- I have pink and some other colors in my stash that I’ve got no real plans for. I may not use my variegated yarns for these since I have plans for most of my other yarns. I’m adding this one to the shop, as well. Both this and my white headband have free shipping [because the padded envelopes I’ll be using are only like 18 cents, so I wouldn’t feel right charging shipping].
