It’s a Dragon!

Recently I’ve joined a website called Simbi, where you can trade your arts/crafts for someone else’s! I love the community, and I’m having a lot of fun talking with everyone there! It wasn’t too long before I got my first order. A dragon! I’d never made one before, so the prospect of making one for a stranger to “buy” was unnerving, but I told them I’d give it a try. This is what I came up with!

The verdict? She loved it! Maybe more than anyone has loved anything I’ve made. It was so uplifting!

Overall, I’m very pleased with the cute little thing, and was so happy for the opportunity to make her!

Happy Friday everyone!

Supermobile!

Recently, a friend of mine (my photographer friend from the market) had a baby! His name is Archer, and thus far, his theme is superheroes. So when I asked if she’d like a baby mobile for him, I wasn’t too surprised to find out what she wanted it to look like.

Superheroes! Featuring Green Arrow, Superman, and Batman.

I was especially pleased with how Green Arrow came out, since I was able to make his arm actually bend to pull back the bowstring.

And I wanted to be sure that they were all attached to the mobile in different ways. Green Arrow with his bow, Batman sliding upside-down, and Superman flying.

Overall, I think this looks waaay better in person, but she liked it and that’s all that matters!

Happy Friday, everyone!

I have a Booth!

Actually, I’ve had a booth for a while. But I’m still super excited about it! There’s a cute little store having its grand opening soon right downtown of where I live, and I’m so pleased to be a part of it! I was nervous about renting out a space, because I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to make a booth look full with the deadline I was given (it was about two weeks), but I’m so glad I did it because I think it came out perfectly!

Yay! I wanted to make it super colorful and bright. I’m especially pleased by how my sign came out. The letters in “crochet” are actually crocheted! Here are some closer pictures:

 

Overall, I feel like it was something to be proud of.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Business Card Holders!

If you’ve been following my facebook, you’ve already seen this little guy:

(And my business cards.) I’m pretty proud of him! I made him with wire in the tentacles so he could hold up my cards. But I put wire in all of them because why not? Now he’s completely pose-able!

Probably the cutest thing I’ve made!

A friend who works as a photographer saw this and wanted one themed for her business, too. I decided to make her an instant camera that has business cards pop out where the Polaroids would pop out if it was a real camera!


The lens was fun to make because it had to be black on the inside, so it took some thinking. But overall, I think it came out well!

 

So that’s it for this week. Happy Friday, everyone!

Minions De Mayo!

Happy Cinco De Mayo, Everyone! I have nothing Spanish prepared, but I do have minions!

These were done for a coworker whose son loves minions. I’d made him a minion doll before, but he gave it to his niece on a visit, even though he didn’t want to. When my coworker told me this, I thought, “well, that kindness needs to be rewarded!” And I made him another at half price. I also made him a big minion backpack to put his little minion in!

Overall, I think it came out very well, and my coworker was very happy with it!

Bee Bag!

 

So not too long ago, I decided it was about time for a new bag. I was going to make one similar to my last one, which was generically bag-shaped, but then, while looking for what color I wanted, I found this adorable grey-yellow striped yarn and thought, “Why don’t I make a barrel bag that looks like a bumble bee? And thus, Bee Bag was born!

I was so proud of him, I had a professional photographer take pictures of him at Beyond the Chaos Photography. Here’s how they came out:

His wings are pockets!

Happy Friday, Everyone.
