Crafty holiday

Sunday, January 11th, 2015 | Amigurumi, At the office, crafts, crochet, FO's, Geekery, Holiday | No Comments

It certainly has been busy, busy times. The holidays are busy for all fiber artists. It’s part of the reason why my knitting group celebrates Christmas in February. It’s just more realistic for us.

Plus, ya know, there is that thing that keeps my busy most days called “my job”. Yes, there’s that.

Speaking of my job, it’s been terribly exciting lately lately… which means busy, too. I have a new cubicle and a place on a new show. I also have new work friends. I wanted to make something small for everyone, so I made little bags filled with homemade goodies and attached homemade ornaments to each one.

Ornaments for my work friends…

And Jason Funderburker got some striped socks and a new top hat!

As hard as it is to believe, I didn’t really make a lot of fibery things this Christmas. I actually tried pacing myself this year. Call it a Christmas gift to myself. 🙂

While we are on the topic of designing things, I have also spent some time working on a project for my friend Corey Booth. Corey was our summer intern here at work. As part of his internship, he had to pitch a show idea.

Pitch!

Since he had seen the frogs I had made for my coworkers, he suggested I give Gum a try. Are you kidding? Of course!! So before Corey left to go back home, he gave me some sketches to work from.

Corey’s sketches and the beginning of a body.

So, I decided to work on Gum during Knit Night with my girlfriends. Slowly but surely, he started to take shape.

Making sure his stuffing brains don’t fall out.

Prepping his legs.

You can’t eat diner food without arms.

I was really pleased with how he turned out. He is all done and now living in his new home in Detroit!

Maybe it’s time to start…

This is really exciting for me! I am starting to get messages on tumblr from people looking to get their hands on my frogs.

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 9.07.47 AM

I never get messages on tumblr!

I think it is time for me to get serious about writing the pattern. I need to look into a few things (like if the cartoon powers that be would be cool with it), but I am planning on doing this soon.

Be patient and keep your eyes peeled, Tumblr friends!

Working Frogs…

Friday, November 14th, 2014 | Amigurumi, At the office, crochet, Design, FO's | 1 Comment

Ahh, yes. The day job.

Over The Garden Wall finally airing is bittersweet. People have been posting all kinds of love for the show. However, it also means things have wound down and people have gone their separate ways. It’s been the best working experience I’ve ever had. I am truly grateful to have worked with such amazing and talented people.

People are starting to ask about the frog. Maybe it’s time I wrote a pattern?

Adrienne and I threw together crew themed costumes at the last minute. Yay, sewing skills!

On to more adventures! I have two other productions to keep me plenty busy! Maybe working on patterns might be a good lunchtime activity?

Mystery Fan Art.

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 | Amigurumi, At the office, blah blah blah, FO's, Toys | 1 Comment

Okay…so I originally wrote this post awhile ago…long before I knew what was actually going on with any of this. I saved it in my drafts (which is becoming more and more cluttered these days) thinking that later this year, when I am able to talk about it, I would go ahead and show everyone.

I had taken this picture right after I was done making a few of these….then pixelated it because I technically can’t show you what it is.

Mysterious mystery.

But then this happened and since I work on this show, I am going to feel free to straight up pimp it’s tumblr out on my blog. Plus there’s that thing ….ya know…I made the little guy pictured in the profile pic.

I am thinking once I get a moment, maybe I should write up the pattern. Maybe someone might want one of their own.

Big Sammy…

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014 | Amigurumi, crochet, Pattern | No Comments

While I am busy trying new things and experimenting for an upcoming project, my Sammy pattern has been selling on Ravelry. I am really excited to see some upcoming project photos from people!

Recently I received an email from someone who purchased the pattern. She stated she was making the project for a friend and wanted some advice on modding it for size.

I hadn’t tried modding this for size at all myself, but I wanted to try something out before responding to her email.

Sammy…for size reference.

Everyone’s gauge is different, and your gauge is what will effect the size of the finished product. The easiest way I could think of to make him bigger is to double the yarn and up the hook size. I whipped up a quick sample and sent her the above picture with an explanation of what I did.

I am really looking forward to seeing how big her Sammy turns out!!

A very Hannibal Day…

Sunday, June 1st, 2014 | Amigurumi, blah blah blah, crafts, FO's, Geekery, knitting, Toys | 1 Comment

I swear my life is all about Fandom and Fiber Art lately. I just finished a type of fan art project (more on that later)…I’ve been asked to be in a themed art show (more on that later too)…and then out of the blue, I start getting a barrage of texts.

Turns out a few of my Fannibal friends went to an Emmy screening of Hannibal (Episode 213:Mizumono) last week in Hollywood. They didn’t get in, but they had a lot of fun outside the event.  Remember this?

The Hannibal Lecter Playset.

Well, my friend Ashley decided to take it with her to the Hannibal Screening.

And when my phone blew up…these were the pictures I was receiving…

She also told me that Bryan Fuller got to see all 4 of them. Kinda cool!
