May Makes

Tiny Box TimI made this little guy for my son’s birthday, who is a huge fan of Markiplier.  Fairly simple pattern. Works up to a cute size. The hands are brown, not white as in the pattern, so I when googling the face had to do new hands. ugh! I did the face with felt, sewn on with sewing thread. I’m not sure how well it will bear up under washing. Probably best to hand wash. This guy was received with joy, so job well done. 🙂

Unicorn cuddler

RTS PILLOW unicorn 01 d

This is so super adorable!! It’s smaller than I thought it would be. Pretty much the size of your head – so good for portable nap times I suppose. I used ugly baby yarn from the 80s – the yellow+white+pink+blue. It looks awesome on this pillow! I have very little left…. which I am now sad about. Haha. Shouldn’t be hard to find more in yard sales etc.  Now I want to make ALL THE PONIES.

RTS Dragon Dice Bag 05 teal a

RTS Dragon Dice Bag  04b stained glass black crystal

RTS Dragon Dice Bag  03b purple ombre

I may have had a bit of fun with this pattern. It doesn’t take much yarn, is easy, & great for clearing my crafter palette so I can refocus on something else. Great for car trips, waiting room waits, & TV. I had fun using pretty yarn & added beads to several! Also I entered May’s contest on the Red Heart Lovers Group forum on Ravelry & won. So now Red Heart is sending me a surprise package!! EEEE!! I wonder what yarn goodies will be in it? They’ve come out with several new types of yarn & colours…… I’m pretty excited about it.

Yup, I love me some Red Heart Stripes!! The pastel is pretty great! I also wanted to see how this hat worked up in a short colour repeat – so I dug out some vintage yarn in the blue+purple+yellow colourway. Still cute! I ❤ this pattern!! I need to make more.

WIP Wednesday

I’ve been super busy lately, so I kinda dropped the ball on this blog. Want a peek?

I’ve got a couple of orders on the go. I’ve been asked to make some brain props for a Cthulhu LARP being held at a local LARP convention. I used a purchased pattern, but the brain ended up being baby sized. So I’ve written an adult sized brain pattern. It’s looking good so far.

A customer ordered a black with maroon hooded capelet like the grey one I made. It’s coming along beautifully.

I’m working on stock for the Saskatoon Entertainment Expo coming up in September. Lando’s on the go.

More crocodile stitch pouches for the shop, a Forest Girl Beret in cute variegated yarn, a baby overalls pattern that is about a year to late, but I still wanted to make it.

And lastly – I hope to finish my Lotus Moon Blanket I started back in 2016.

Octopus Hat Ta Da!

This is an amazing hat!

I had a request for this style of hat, & found the free pattern by Abnormal Crocheter.  I found the pattern not exactly well written and the hat was frustrating to make.  I also didn’t have the “right” yarn to make the project awesome.  Enter in Red Heart’s Ombre yarn in violet. Winner winner chicken dinner!!

HAT Octopus Hat Purple lime b

I purchased a different octopus hat pattern from The Twisted Hatter, and while expensive turned out to be the better pattern by far.

I really like how the lime contrasts with the purples!

Gay Straight Alliance Toques!!

My teen has taken a big step & created a Gay Straight Alliance in their high school!  It’s been an interesting but rewarding experience.  They have a small club, & are working towards creating an atmosphere of acceptance and allies in the high school.

Towards that end I thought I would design some hats in the theme of the Pride Flags!

My teen wears their Gender Fluid Slouch often, so I am pretty happy about that. 🙂

I have the hats listed in my Etsy shop, & the patterns in Ravelry for you to buy and create your own.  Available as an e-book or individual patterns.
