Five Foot Alligator

I feel like there’s some supremely catchy song-themed pun that I am severely missing right now, but I can’t think of it! Therefore: the title of this post is “five foot alligator,” which is exactly what I crocheted.

This one was for a young boy that has many of my crocheted amigurumi (and a little of my heart). He wanted an alligator “as big as Nana!” which I find just adorable. Luckily, his Nana and I are the same size, so it was easy to measure.

It was NOT so easy to crochet! But very worth it in the end. I love this photo I have of it sitting in the car on the way to be delivered.  I almost buckled him in!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

(P.S. I figured it out! It should have been “Mashed potato! Five-Foot Allogato!”)

Pink Panther

This is one I never thought I’d do! Pink Panther is one of those cool retro characters that I was pretty excited about. He took me way longer to make than he should have because I had reservations about his nose, but overall, he came out ok!

The one problem with crocheting him, though, was that I could NOT stop humming his theme! So catchy! So Saxophoney! Forever in my head.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Toothless Keychain

Anyone who follows me meticulously and obsessively (haha) would know that two years ago I made a little toothless! (Which you can see here). But this year, in light – I assume – of the new movie, I got another order for a little toothless keychain. It’s always fun to compare things from years back!

Jeez. Looking at it now, it’s clear my photography skills haven’t improved in the last two years. But the sun was in my eyes, so I couldn’t tell that toothless wasn’t in focus.

Yup, that’s my excuse.

Anyway, there’s nothing I can do about it now since it’s in SPAIN.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Call of Duty

A friend of mine plays a lot of CoD, but she knows me enough that when I asked for a picture of their character, she KNEW what I was about to do with it.

I made the goggles, too! But I think she’s more cute without them.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Pageant Queen!

I ran into a good friend of my mother’s a bit back and we got into talking about crochet. Anyone that knows me knows this is a subject I can get pretty excitable about, so before I knew it, I was offering to crochet her granddaughter in her pageant dress. Funny how these things happen!

Here’s the dress:

And here’s my recreation (reCROCHETion?) of it!

It was a pretty fun make! I’m looking forward to getting the chance to do much more of this in the future.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Bonnets!

The title says it all, folks. Here are some bonnets!

Maybe after they’re to the orderer, she’ll send me some pictures and I can show you pictures of a baby wearing a crocheted bonnet. But until then, I hope these images can satisfy your crochet appetites.

Happy Friday, Everyone!
