I made a small baby blanket for a friend of mine who will have baby boy in a couple of months. It was super fun and easy and I really loved how it turned out! It’s about 32x32 inches.
Lion Brand Yarns has a wonderful pattern for this project. I used their Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Navy yarn and Marble yarn. I also used Loops&Threads Cozy Wool yarn in the colors Stone and Seastorm.
I decided to try and make a couple of useful totes in-between my afghan square project. I have plenty of yarn I needed to get rid of, and I found this awesome tote pattern on Lion’s Brand Yarn site (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L10485.html)
First tote was made from Vanna White’s Glamour Yarns, and second tote was made with Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarns :)
This is my first ever crochet block! My friend’s Girl Scout troop needs about 12 crochet/knit squares, and I wanted to help out. I decided to use Red Heart pink, red and white yarn. Pattern provided by SmoothFox on Ravelry :)
Made this for my friend’s upcoming birthday. She loves Bioshock, so I thought this gift would be appropriate :)
I decided to make the Undertow Vigor because it looked challenging and fun. I started with a glass bottle purchased at a local craft store and painted it blue. From there, I molded polymer clay on the bottle and baked the entire thing. I painted the octopus initially with acrylic silver paint, than created an ‘antique’ look with a darker silver. Then I drew the octopus symbol with marker and painted it. Finally (after I sculpted the cork topper as well) I covered it all in paint varnish to seal the colors.
Materials used: FolkArt Acrylic Metallic Silver, True Blue, Sunflower and Black paints, Sculpey III white clay, Copic Black sketch marker, and a square-shaped glass bottle.
Meeting Guillermo del Toro!!! He was incredibly nice :) I got a giant hug!
