Toys for Friends

As I mentioned, I was making my friends all little keychain sized (or not) amigurumi animals, and now I have it more figured out. So, update (I also edited their names, so don't bother to figure it out yet):

Amelia was given a roly poly cat

I am almost finished with Wendy's snail,

Skye is getting a purple monkey still,

Cynthia is still undecided, because she is my twin, probably a penguin, or a hedgehog,

Henrietta is getting either a heart, or an eighth note, or both together,

and finally Annie is getting either a Yoda doll, or a dress.

Thanks for reading my kinda-not-exciting-posts so far, for anyone who actually does read it, and don't forget to leave your comments :) ,

These amigurumi pieces are not mine, after that snail. :)

I've been busy crocheting

I'm planning on making a weather mobile, maybe more like a universe mobile, and it has three layers: the top has a sun, a moon, and a star; the middle has a white and a gray (bluish) cloud, and maybe a rainbow, or not; the bottom has a raindrop, a lightning bolt, and a bird. I contemplated a snowflake, but no. A bird.
This is what I have done:

Um... the pictures don't want to load. I will try again later. I made up all the patterns except the cloud, which i may remake. Ask for any pattern.

there we go.

I am also crocheting all my friends mini amigurumi keychains, just because. I am giving them all screen names:
For Wanda, I made a snail. It's the only one I started. (I kinda sorta based it off the idea of this one:

Henrietta is getting a heart (maybe this one if I figure it out:

Skye is getting a purple monkey (probably my earlier-mentioned pattern),

I'm making Sarah a turtle, Cynthia an... i don't know (she's my twin), and Barbara a little dress, maybe?(she likes fashion and stuff.)

I guess I have to make myself something... Meh. The mobile. :)
Sorry for such a long post,

Friendly Stalkers :)

So my friend sent this lovely creature after me to stalk me after I said I was stalking her via email, and so I set off to create one for myself. I present you with a crab made from keyboard characters!
Comment and let me know which you like best!

Puffballs and Such

So, I was going to create a puffball with wings, but it turned out to be a puffball with a pom pom on her head. Her name is Tommiie. Don't ask why. :)
Anyway... Here she is.

With a head of hair...

...And with a complete furry... aura.

I am also working on a weather mobile, which I will explain in my next post, along with a bunch of patterns. Oh, here is the pattern for this puffy creature (or a large hackysack :D):

Tommiie the furry puffball
You will need a crochet hook (I used an F hook, and crocheted tightly)
And a round marker (to mark the end of rounds, a paper clip or safety pin, etc. works)
And yarn, normal and furry.
 And a brain, and eyes, and stuff. :)

Ch 4, join with sl st
1.       Sc 6 into 2nd ch from hook
2.       2 sc in ea around (12)

20.   Fasten off and weave in end (or not, I don’t bother), you’re done! Well, with the base.
21.   Then, I took orange super soft fuzzy stuff, and crocheted around the outside, and skipped a row for the eyes, and ended like two thirds down or something.
22.   My sister embroidered little carat (or however you spell that) (^  ^) eyes onto it.
23.   Don’t forget to make a small pom pom and sew it to its head (if it’s a girl, or think of something better, if it’s a guy. Or make up wings.)

Please leave a comment with a picture if you try it!

Oh yeah, and feel free to leave comments on what I should crochet, I never have any idea what to make. Chances are, I will try it.

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
--Matthew 5:14
