Steve

Here's another crochet monster from Edward's Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord. This one isn't actually a monster, as you can see, but it still uses the same base, arms and legs pattern. The ears and tail are modified a little from the pattern and the eye patch, nose and paws were easily made up.



This is "Steve" which is named after Steve Burns for Blue's Clues. (Hence the blue paw which is handy for leaving clues.) The idea came about after seeing these adorable Scrappy the Happy Puppy Slippers from One & Two Company.  I only had a little blue so I did the ear first and was hoping I could get another arm but there was just enough for a print. ... and a blue paw print for us means it's gotta be a Blue's Clue!  So, this puppy's name had to be Steve.

I have done the "required three" monsters and so now I can have creative freeform on any other monsters but my goal is to use up the extra yarn I have. This one, however, I went out and bought some brown and blue - so if that is a telling sign then I might not ever use up all the extra yarn. LOL

Fluffy

I have completed another creation from Edward's Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord. This one is Fluffy because of all the loop stitches on the body and ears. I don't think I'll do that again and considering I had to redo the body twice, this counts as three.  Maybe?


This monster is more of a bunny which was by design.  She has one bow, one sock (with another bow so I guess that means two bows) plus a bracelet made from extra crochet markers. I didn't like using them away so this was a great donation. She also has one green eye and one blue eye.

Peppermint

This is my second crochet project from the book Edward's Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord. We call him Peppermint. This was much easier than the first plus I didn't have to fret over choosing the elements.  Sometimes narrowing down the which arms or lets is the hardest part. Now on to the next one. LOL

Strawberry Sunbonnet Wagon

I've added to my envelop project with another image on an inside flap. This one is Strawberry Sunbonnet Wagon rubber stamp from LMMS. I've stamped it twice to get the double wagon. You can see the colors I used below.  This project was started so long ago that I've already expended the first deadline but have set another for mid September and hope to make that one.  LOL


For this panel, I also added some Make it Craft chipboard embellishments, but also lacy ribbon, gems, doily and cheesecloth, as you can plainly see all that.  :D

There's a new Anything Goes Challenge that opened up today - you can pop over and add your favorite creation from this week.


Here are the Copic markers I used on Strawberry Sunbonnet Wagon:

Polka Dot Pals Kyree

Welcome to a new Anything Goes challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges.  For this week, I created a summer card using Polka Dot Pals Kyree.  However, she's not available in the store but you don't want to miss out on these details to get her... she's free!


Little Miss Muffet Stamps is being featured in this month's issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine (issue 166).  You get to play with this Polka Dot Pal along with some coordinating images that are in this issue.  


The face was added with a Polka Dot Pals Add-on Face or you can color your own or leave it blank.  Then, since you'll love coloring her, you'll want to grab some more Polka Dot Pals in the LMMS store.  Of course!
