Standard

spaceinvaderssampler Can’t wait to try out this Space Invaders sampler brought to you by Sprite Stitch!

I should probably finish up some projects first though. I’ll be saving this to my cross stitch folder though.

Embroidered Doozer.

Standard
Dozer Embroidery

Look at this little guy? Isn’t he absolutely adorable! Not to mention all the fantastic 80’s flashbacks he’s giving me. Fraggle Rock was one adorable kids show. Doozers were my absolute favorite, too! It only seemed right that I share with you Sew It’s For You‘s Doozer embroidery!

Makes me want to take up embroidery. But that’s the last thing I need. A new craft to take me away from my 234523 unfinished projects.

FFVII Amigurumi.

Standard

Look everyone! I’m still alive. Amazing. I haven’t posted in a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been crafting away! I have several crochet projects in the works right now, but they are all fairly big ones, so it may be a while before they’re posted; and as always I still have a cross stitch in progress 😉 Anyway, on with the post!

I found these adorable Final Fantasy VII amigurumi (crocheted) dolls via Sprite Stitch and were created by Oddgumi (flickr link). Adorable and nerdy! And she even has a Sephiroth!

So cute! I wish I would able to make amigurumi. Mine always come out lumpy and sickly looking 😦 I guess I’ll just stick to what I know best and leave the doll making to the masters.

P.S. – also check out her ridiculously cute Hank and Dean Venture dolls! do want.

Crafty Inginuity.

Standard

So, tonight, spur of the moment, I decided I was going to make this really cute sweater I found on Ravelry. Then I found out I need a bunch of stitch markers! I only have one! And then I remember my container of bobby pins sitting on my bathroom counter! Perfect! Just slip ’em in the stitch that needs marked, voila! Stitch markers. Take this advice and use it for all your stitch marking needs!

Soap Savers.

Standard

Finally, some more of my own crafting to share.  I’m working on a couple of big projects and sometimes to take a breather from it all I work on something quick.  Last night I decided to make a soap saver since I like to use expensive, swanky bar soap now (thanks to my job).

The only problem with the pattern I used is that my soap is round not rectangular! I got a pretty good idea of what to do as an alternative, unfortunately I ran out of this cute yarn. I managed to find one bar of rectangular soap in my bathroom and used that.

After I took some pictures I immediately started working on the one for the round soap and this was the result:

Add the ruffle and ties to both ends and make it look like a piece of candy! It looks a little too big because the only bar I had right now is half used. While not overly exciting or challenging I can safely say this is the first pattern I have truly altered on my own! 🙂 I’m a little proud of it.

Sailor Moon Perler Beads.

Standard

When my sister and I were growing up we spent most of our summers up in Pittsburgh with relatives. My grandmother loved doing crafts with us and I can safely say the reason this blog is here is because of her. She was the one who taught me how to crochet when I was probably 9 or 10 years old.

One of my fondest craft memories from my Baba Mary’s house was definitely perler beads! Me and my sister used to make endless little doodads in the shapes of hearts, squares and circles. So when I found Gamer Grrlz blog I was absolutely FLOORED by her 16 bit video game recreations out of perler beads! Among my favorites are her recent Sailor Moon perlers from the SNES games! So detailed, wonderful, and nerdy!
