Aww thanks!! And okay, maybe someday I'll need it.
Good, but if you ever make another I would love to buy one from you. I may have grandchildren someday.
Like I would ever make you pay.
I can work on it after my next project if you really wanted one.
Yvette - the hat is adorable! Did you crochet or knit it? If crochet, that's a pattern I need to get.
Here is my current tatting project:
Needs wing number 2, tails tucked, and a name. I am so excited with how it is turning out! I'll try to remember to take a size comparison shot when it is done. The little dragon fits on my open hand.
AWWWW!!!! That is cute!!! I love dragons.
Made these for an upcoming convention. It was my first attempt so all things considering, they came out pretty well! I think I will trim my bows though.
EDIT: Wow those pictures came out big. Lemme fix!
Those are adorable! Nice job!
I couldn't get Marvel fabric in time so I used comic book pages. It was way harder since it had no 'give.' But I am still happy with them.
A close up to see the Avengers mini covers.
Oooooh, I really like those!
I do apologize for the giant pics. I tried and tried and couldn't get them smaller!
Oh man I might need to figure out how to make shoes like that. I've always wanted a pair of Star Wars shoes.
I am currently making a quilt, ran into a snag but my mom is coming to visit so she's going to help me. Once I have the top all stitched together I'll take a pic of it and then one when it has the back on it and design quilted into it. My first ever attempt at sewing (even bought a machine just for this!) Its been a huge learning experience but I think it is going to look decent when it is done.
Wow, that's really creative. You are very talented, Yvette.
And I would also buy a Yoda baby hat if you ever make more. I may one day need it
I'd like to know how to make those gorgeous shoes, too!
Lovely projects, all!
Thank you! It is just comic book pages, Mod Podge and a lot of patience. Fabric is much easier but I can't get the licensed geeky stuff here so I had to settle for the comics.
Even MOAR SHOOZ
It was my first attempt at little kid shoes. THey are much more difficult (I had no idea~!) because I was working with such a little area. But I think they are adorable.
They aren't for me, FYI.
And I love these. They are also not for me but I think I need to make a pair for myself too.
Aww, they are so cute, Yvette!
Both pairs look fantastic! Nice job Yvette!
Mixing craft and food!~!!
Cool stuff, Yvette. I actually still have this ewok somewhere, which you once sent me as the mod xmas-gift exchange.
Serious?? That makes me SOOOO happy~!
I should make him a friend!
Oh sweet idea Yvette
Yeah I seem to have the same issue. Beads, knitting, crocheting, cross stitch and swedish weaving
there is a sweater knit a long group starting up in October. Should be interesting
I figured out how many balls I'll need total for the project. I'm looking at just over a hundred for the amount I need. Which isn't too bad, helps that they have 220 yards per ball. That helps
It's a cable bonnie sweater. Really nice looking
OoOoOh!! Post 'in progress' pics!
I've been doing a lot of tatting. The first photo is T.A.S.C. [Tatting and Sewing Clank] - a prop for my Agatha Heterodyne costume (Girl Genius Comic character). The rest are a few of the things I've tatted in the last few months. Sorry about the giant size of the photos! I'll re-size the others before I post them.
A friend of mine went through a bad stretch the past 2 years, and since I crochet and knit asked me to make him some Star Wars Christmas ornaments last year at the end of November. Since there are few patterns (and no free ones I thought looked good), I told him to give me a year, and I'd make him some. He specifically requested the Falcon and an X-wing, which I designed from scratch. I modified a free basic doll pattern to make the people and custom designed all their clothes--Leia's hair and dress, Han's vest and belt/holster, etc. I designed R2D2 from scratch, as I did Yoda who is dressed in TESB style, not EP I, II, or III style. I only had really dark green yarn in sport weight, so he's darker than I would like, but I love how his ears came out. After I designed and made an Enterprise ornament for another friend's birthday gift, he asked for one too, but I thought it looked too lonely, so I designed a Borg ship and a Klingon Bird Of Prey to keep it company. He sent me pics of them on his tree, and I LOL'd when I saw them--the Klingon ship is nearly cloaked it blends in so well, and I bet non-fans will be asking why there's a great big square on the tree, and I love the spread of good guys arrayed below the Falcon, Death Star, and X-wing. I kept my notes, so I could probably make them again...so maybe I'll make a set for myself.
Those look awesome. Please let me know if you ever write the patterns down to share or sell.

Thanks! I used a basic crochet doll pattern that I modified the clothing on to make all the people. Leia's dress was made with a separate skirt I sewn to the body, and her hair buns are the first two rounds of the head made separately and sewed down and lightly stuffed before being sewn shut, I did some long embroidery stitches in black for Luke's belt pouches and made a separate lightsaber in silver that I had to sew to his leg to get it to stay down, and Lando has a basic cape. Han took the most time of the people, as I made his vest separately in #10 black thread, and I also separately created his holster, belt, and buckle in addition to using surface crochet for his Corellian blood stripes on his pants legs. I made the pouch for Chewie from a rectangle folded in half, and then threaded white yarn through the handle on both sides to make it into his pouch and bandolier, and when he was done, I brushed him with a wire brush to make him fuzzy. All the humans and Yoda were made with DK/sport weight yarn, while Chewie, the Falcon, X-wing, and Death Star were made with worsted.
