Angry Birds Crochet Beanie
This was a commissioned piece for a friend for her Angry Birds loving son. I couldn't find a pattern that looked the way I wanted the hat to, so I ended up creating my own! The ear flaps are meant to look like little wings. This hat is made from 100% acrylic yarn, so it's easy to wash and is rugged enough to withstand a rambunctious kids' life!
I crocheted these balls for a friend who needed a "destressor" at work. And what helps stress more than kicking someone in the balls?* This little guy is made from wool yarn and filled with dried beans to help keep his shape. His face was made using embroidery floss.
*I don't actually recommend kicking people in the balls...don't do that. It's a bad thing.
Pussy Whipped: The Ballad of Dusty Rose
This little lady sprung out of my weird sense of humor and wordplay. I started thinking about how weird the phrase "pussy whipped" is, when visualized, and this is what I came up with. The main body is crochet, as is her hat. The boots and the belt are faux tooled leather glued and sewn together. Her whip is made from a bamboo skewer base with floral wire, wrapped in embroidery floss. Her gun is made with Sculpey and "stained" with brown paint. She can stand on her own, and is fully poseable. I'm using her in some stop motion animation videos.
I needed a new scarf, and this is my favorite shade of green, so I found a stitch pattern that I liked and whipped up this infinity scarf, or cowl.
Jake the Dog Amigurumi
I wanted a little something to spruce up my cubicle, so I created this amigurumi version of Jake the Dog, from the TV show Adventure Time. His arms and legs are fully poseable wire, and I added a little bootie to keep it authentic.
Sad Uterus, for Government Free VJJ
I created this sad uterus for the Government Free VJJ project. I looked at some medical drawings and kind of made up a pattern as I went. She's made from cotton yarn and stuffed with polyfill
Sasquatch Hunter Kit
Josh's sister is very interested in Sasquatch, so for Christmas in 2012, I created a sasquatch hunter kit for her. I used the freezer paper technique to stencil a purchased t-shirt and backpack, then created an official-looking "Bigfoot Hunter" license to fill out and frame. I used wool yarn to crochet the bottoms of the slippers and the "toes", then felted to get the right texture. Then, I finished off with a fun fur/wool upper for a toasty slipper that looks like Bigfoot feet!
Universal Afghan for Dad
My dad is going through some major surgery, and will have a long recovery time, so I decided to make him this afghan so I could be "nearby" even though I'm in another state. It ended up being kind of "Universe" themed even though I didn't mean it to be, because of the patterns I chose. With names like "Betelgeuse" and "Locutus," and pattern pieces called "Satellites," I feel like "Universal Afghan" is a good name.
