dreamcatchings: (firefly: find your genius thing)
As anyone on my FB knows, I've been working on a crochet project for my dad for Father's day. It's a VW Camper Van, which seems a little crazy to be sure. I'm not 100% happy with it, but I think it looks good. Plus I think he'll really enjoy it.

Lots of pictures so here's a cut )

The dimensions aren't exact but it's about 15 inches tall, 8 inches wide and 14 inches long.

I'm not completely happy with. I wanted larger wheels, but finding two inches buttons was a pain enough. Also they had to be glued on because I positioned the tires after rather than before assemble and there was not way to sew them on. The stars are felt stickers. They should have been sewed. It needed more stuffing but after two and a half bags I was tired of it. There's a bag of beans in the bottom for weight.

Still. It came together rather well.

I would make more, but I'm not sure what I would even charge if someone wanted one.

Adipose

I finished the Adipose baby this morning.

I did have to change the original pattern for the hands and feet a little to make them work. I'm not entirely happy with the hands. This was the test version, though. I'm going to make another out of bamboo yarn, and I think I know what else to do different with the hands so that the fingers are a little more pronounced. The feet are adorable. I sort of sewed the legs on poorly and the little thing is canted a bit. His arms don't look wonderful on him, either, but he's cute.

Oooookay.

Is anyone else having problems with LJ? I cannot seem to convince the Scrapbook that I'm logged in when the entire rest of the site realizes I'm logged in. I wanted to upload pictures of the crocheted Adipose I started working on. Guess I'll try again later.

[livejournal.com profile] nuclearwoman I think I've found something we should make. Or something we should use to make other pretty things. I think we should work on lace up wrist cuffs like this, this and this. We should be able to find decent fabric at Hobby Lobby as well as eyelets and an eyelet punch. I think that incorporating these cords, these cords and these ribbons would be awesome. (I linked to random colors; I was just wanting to show the various sizes.)

Thoughts?
