Anyone who says that crochet is not a true art form gets five across the eyes! Jo Hamilton brings it and brings it hard. You may be able to make your grandma a hat, but can you make your grandma?
Awwwww! She’s waiting to kill you!
The Etsy Shop, Twimoon, sells these murderous little cuties made to order. What’s that you say? This is just a cute little amigurumi of an angel what cries? SILENCE! That’s what the others thought and now they’re all dead…dead.
Well shut my mouth wide open! This is what a $4k crocheted dress looks like. You get some cashmere and PVC for a plunging neck line and you could be making bank too.
Despite the news and the so called “snow storms” in the eastern states, Spring is coming. Oh yes. It is coming, my friends. And I can’t think of a better way to welcome its warmth and high pollen counts than by making your own bird houses!
Ok, these are more huts than houses but do our feathered friends really use the elaborate multi-story pads we offer them from Bed Bath & Beyond?
No! These are birds, damn it! They’re wild and untamed beasts of the sky! They don’t want highly polished mahogany floors! They want string, mud, and hemp!
Oh right. These houses are made of hemp. I found the pattern on Etsy. You more conservative crafters can use twine. Either way you get a nice earthy look that will have the birds flocking to your home every year. And if you want to get fancy try pulling this off.
I can’t find a pattern for this one but I sure would like to.
The Crochet Crowd on Facebook has a newsletter out with a tribute to pets and the best part is their idea for Red Heart’s new reflective yarn!
I had wondered when and why I would use this stuff but clearly the answer is puppies! Duh!
What better way to protect your K9 compadre than a reflective sweater for those cooler night time walkies?
If one were so inclined, one could even make some gear for themselves as seen here in the ad from Red Heart.com. But I dunno. Other than walking your dog why would you ever need this?
I found this while rocking my son to sleep and almost threw the poor kid down from excitement! The worm from Labyrinth!
First, best movie EVER!
Second, David Bowie’s codpiece seemed a bit prominent for a kids flick in retrospect but I digress.
Third, love this worm! Three minutes tops in the whole film and he leaves a lasting impression for nerds with yarn power to bring back the joy for us many years later.
This one I found on Craftster.org and is by far the best replica I’ve seen! Downfall? Not intended for play. It has painted details and small non-Stitched parts more suitable for adult fandom.
Want something more for the kiddies? How about this?
There are tons of patterns out there for this little guy and not all of them are cute. This one is the most awesomest! Lookit that lil face!
Either pattern is not for the faint of heart so if you’re the babe with the power (what power?) get to work on this! Like, now! Squee!!!!!
