Great Firebreathing Dragon.

I wanted to make this amigurumi dragon years ago when I first saw it but never really got to it. It kept appearing here and there until last weekend (long 4-day weekend here with Midsummers Eve/national Victory Day and Midsummers Day). I just really wanted to make something but couldn’t come up with anything and decided it was time for this fine fellow. I am a Dragon myself after all. 😉

IMG_8047Last time I was in a yarn store to pick up some additional yarn for a project (probably next post) I also spotted a couple other adorable skeins that I grabbed. The label says Katia DegradĂ© “Sun” and it’s 100% Egyptian Cotton. I picked up colours no 75 (this one) and 77 (for future).

I was hoping for a nice ombre effect on it but as you can see it didn’t happen. Here I have you a picture of him posing on the what’s left of the skein. I pulled the end out from the middle and it turned out that it had mostly yellow in there. There’s more of it left in there but I think if I’d make another one it might already show some green in it.

IMG_8061Never the less I still think he turned up lovely! ^_^ Sometimes things just don’t go as planned which definitely doesn’t mean it’s bad. I added the pieces of green felt as the colour was still in my vision and I think it worked. Even the cheeks are green as my pink felt was a bit too hot-pink. I like the green.

The hook was again my 1.75 mm and the stuffing is polyester. The horn’s were tricky as I had trouble making two about the same size. In fact I did the front left one three times.

I just finished it this morning so he was a little too late to light up the Midsummers Eve bonfires but he can do it next year, can practice the firebreathing until then. 😉

Seda tuldsĂŒlgavat draakonit tahtsin juba ammu teha. Juba siis kui ma teda esimest korda nĂ€gin. MillegipĂ€rast enne eelmist nĂ€dalavahetust selleni ei jĂ”udnud. Hirmus isu oli midagi teha aga otsustada ei suutnud. Kuna see draakonike aeg-ajalt ikka mul kuskil ette sattus, otsustasin, et nĂŒĂŒd on aeg teha omale ĂŒks isiklik draakon.

Viimane kord kui lĂ”ngapoes kĂ€isin, ĂŒhele pooleli olevale tööle lisamaterjali ostmas, leidsin paar huvitavat kera veel. Nimi peal Katia DegradĂ© “Sun” ja materjal 100% egiptuse puuvill. Valisin vĂ€rvid nr 75 (see siin ) ja 77 (tulevaste projektide jaoks).

Lootsin mĂ”nusat sujuvat vĂ€rviĂŒleminekut, aga nagu nĂ€ha, siis seda ei ole. Kasutasin lĂ”nga seda otsa, mis tuleb sealt keskelt ja tuleb vĂ€lja, et enamus selle kera sisust on kollane. Seda jĂ€i sinna pĂ€rast draakoni valmimist veelgi. JĂ€rgmise puhul ehk juba sabaotsa saaks natuke rohelist ka, kui hĂ€sti lĂ€heb.

KĂ”igest hoolimata on ta ikkagi tore. MĂ”nikord asjad lihtsalt ei lĂ€he kuidagi nii, nagu plaanitud, aga ju siis nii ongi Ă”ige. Kaunistasin teda rohelise vildiga, kuna see kombinatsioon oli mul endiselt peas. Tundub, et toimis kĂŒll. Isegi pĂ”sed on rohelised, mu roosa vilt oli natuke liiga erk siia panna.

Taaskord kasutasin 1.75 mm heegelnĂ”ela ning tĂ€idiseks polĂŒester. Sarvede vormimisega nĂ€gin veits vaeva – kuidagi ei tahtnud kaks ĂŒhesuurust vĂ€lja tulla, isegi kui algmaterjal oli sisuliselt identseteks tĂŒkkideks lĂ”igatud. Vasakut esimest sarve tegin nt kolm korda.

Valmis sai ta alles tĂ€na hommikul, st jaanitulede sĂŒĂŒtamiseks natuke hilja. Aga ehk nii ongi parem – jĂ”uab oma tulesĂŒlgamist aasta jagu veel harjutada. 😉

Bender Bending Rodriguez.

I would say it was a VERY long time ago that I posted this. It was a WIP that had been kind of forgotten in there. And that was in 2012. 
IMG_3245During my last vocation I searched the stuff I had made and rediscovered it. I don’t know why I didn’t finish it back then but I decided to do it right now and here is the result.

IMG_8040I’m not really proud of it as the most of he body was made so long time ago that my “handwriting” has changed a bit. I think you can even tell from the picture  that the stitches forming the head are much more firm and that makes the head a bit too tiny.

Also I found out that I hadn’t done the shoulders or finished the hands really. Those parts seem a bit small too. For a second I thought I had a wrong hook size but as long ago as In started this I’m pretty sure I only had one.

I decided not to change anything and leave it as is, kind of quirky but still recognizable. 😀 Maybe I’ll have a second attempt some time (I doubt that). But who knows!

The pattern is from Stitch. I used 3 mm crochet hook and G-B Wolle Bamboo Touch (65% wool, 35% bamboo viscose) yarn. Stuffing took all the stuff I had to put in there. It has some cotton, polyester stuffing and some mixed pillow-filling. In fact after finishing this I went to a store to bring more stuffing – it was a pillow insert.

The picture is as is as I was simply too impatient and the weather was just too gloomy in order it to look better today.

Selle Benderi (Futurama) tegemist alustasin ma juba VÄGA ammu. Esimene pilt siin on tehtud aastal 2012 st juba siis oli ta mul mĂ”nda aega pooleli olnud. Viimase puhkuse ajal kolasin natuke ja leidsin ta jĂ€lle ĂŒles.

Kuna enamus valmis vĂ€ga ammu, siis on nĂ€ha “kĂ€ekirjalisi” erinevusi. Viimasena valminud pea on tunduvalt tihedamate silmustega kui kogu muu keha ja seetĂ”ttu tundub ka vĂ€iksem. Sama lugu Ă”laliigestega (?) – avastasin, et need olid ka kunagi tegemata jÀÀnud.

TĂ”tt-öelda ei oska ma siiani öelda, miks ta mul valmis ei saanud juba siis ammu. Ei olnud ju ĂŒldse nii palju lĂ”petada. KĂ”ige parem ta nĂŒĂŒd vĂ€lja ei nĂ€e, aga las ta olla selline. TĂŒkike ajalugu, teatud mĂ”ttes, ja siis natuke praegust ka otsa, et valmis saaks. Selline veidrik tuli, aga no mis siis!?

Korra mĂ”tlesin, et Ă€kki kasutan vale konksu, aga siis jĂ”udsin ikka jĂ€reldusele, et selles asi olla ei saa – alguses mul ainult ĂŒks oligi. (: VĂ”ib-olla teen kunagi teise, korralikuma, ka veel, vĂ”ib-olla mitte – kes teab?!

Mustri autor on Stitch. HeegelnĂ”el oli 3 mm ja lĂ”ng G-B Wolle Bamboo Touch (65%vill, 35% bambusviskoos). Sisuks lĂ€ks kogu mu olemasolev tĂ€idis – natuke puuvilla, veidi rohkem polĂŒmeertĂ€idist ja osalt ka mingi kummaline padjasisu. KĂ”ik need said ka otsa ning kui Bender valmis sai, lĂ€ksin poodi uue jĂ€rele – seekord ĂŒks padjasisu.

Pilt oleks vÔinud ilusam olla, aga ma olin liiga kannatamatu ja ilm liiga sombune, et kohe midagi eriti kena vÀlja tuleks.

Lotte from Gadgetville.

This is the secret project I was working on last week. It was a present and a surprise. Pattern is free from Lilleliis. If you haven’t heard then Lotte is a character from the cartoon named as the title of this post here. There’s also another one with her called Lotte and the Moonstone Secret. They’re both Estonian so I’m not sure if you can see them in other languages. Perhaps with subtitles you can find something. I actually don’t know so let me know if you do! (:IMG_7610

This on here went for my cousin who had a birthday last weekend. I managed to finish it on the “right day” but it didn’t get delivered until yesterday. Now I already have some feedback that the surprise was rather grand and the recipient and the mum both really like her!

A fun thing was that I managed to use some of my yarns that seemed like were waiting for this project. There was just enough of the brown and red yarns and I have just a little beige left. The white I have actually more as it was originally for another project but I should have enough for both.

As of the technical stuff the yarns I used were all different. The red was Steinbach Wolle Capri (100% mercerised cotton), the brown was something from Rowan (I think) but I can’t find the label any more (I’m pretty sure it’s cotton too), the beige was Drops Muskat (100% mercerised Egyptian cotton) and the white was Katia Bamboo (60% bamboo viscose, 40% cotton). I used my Clover Amour 1.75 mm crochet hook. The eyes are from crafting felt, embroidered on with black thread. The hair band is just a scrap of some yellow yarn I found and the doll is stuffed with fibre-fill. The dress is closed with a small red button on the back.

My Lotte is a lot smaller than the original from the pattern but I also used a lot smaller hook and probably a lot finer yarn too. I like it this way as the stuffing doesn’t show and it feels much sturdier.

Have you seen Lotte cartoons? What do you think about my version of her? (:

Teie ees ongi see saladus, mille kallal ma eelmine nĂ€dal vaeva nĂ€gin. Et tegemist oli kingituse ja ĂŒllatusega, ei sanud teda siin enne tĂ€nast nĂ€idata. Tegemisel kasutasin Lilleliisi mustrit, kuna ei tahtnud hakata jalgratast (loe: uut mustrit) leiutama hakata ja teadsin tĂ€pselt, kust sobiv leida. 

Kingituseks lĂ€ks Lotte minu tĂ€ditĂŒtrele, kellel oli eelmine nĂ€dalavahetus sĂŒnnipĂ€ev. Sain ta kĂŒll “Ă”igeks pĂ€evaks” valmis, aga kohale jĂ”udis alles eile. Praeguseks olen juba ka natuke tagasisidet saanud – ĂŒllatus oli tĂ”esti suur ja meeldis nii kingi saajale kui ka ta emale. 

Mis mulle tegemise juures ekstra rÔÔmu valmistas, oli mulje, et mĂ”ned lĂ”ngad ootasid just selle nuku valmimist. Pruuni ja Punast oli umbes-tĂ€pselt nii, et Lotte valmis saaks. BeeĆŸi jĂ€i pisut ĂŒle, valget veidi rohkem, kuna see oli esialgu ĂŒhe teise töö jaoks ostetud, aga ma usun, et seda on mĂ”lema jaoks piisavalt. 

Tehnilise poole pealt vĂ”ttes olid kĂ”ik kasutatud lĂ”ngad erinevad. Punane oli Steinbach Wolle Capri (100% meriseeritud puuvill), pruun kandis kunagi Rowan silti (kui Ă”igesti mĂ€letan), aga praeguseks on see kadunud (mĂ€lu jĂ€rgi oli too ka puuvill), beeĆŸ lĂ”ng oli Drops Muskat (100% meriseeritud egiptuse puuvill) ning valge Katia Bambo (60% bambusviskoos, 40% puuvill). Tööriistaks oli taaskord imeline Clover Amour 1.75 mm konks. Silmad on kĂ€sitöövildist vĂ€lja lĂ”igatud ja musta niidiga kohale tikitud. Juuksed on kinni jupi kollase lĂ”ngaga, tĂ€idiseks padjatĂ€ide. Seljapealt on kleit kinni punase nööbiga. (:

Minu Lotte tuli palju vÀiksem kui Ôpetuses, kuna kasutasin tunduvalt peenemat konksu ja ilmselt ka lÔnga, aga nii meeldib mulle rohkem. TÀidis ei paista vahelt vÀlja ja tundub tugevam ka kÀes. 

Kuidas tundub minu versioon Lottest? (:

Flower Sticks DIY.

IMG_7640

A while ago we had a workshop planned at an outdoor event with my colleagues. This means it was a work thing. The idea was to make flower sticks. We had an EVS volunteer who knew how to juggle them enough to teach as well and I had also googled enough to find out the basics and the equipment needed.

As I actually knew one fellow who had actually made them before, I decided to make him a call. It took a few times but finally I manage to organize a class for the staff so we could spread the skills later on. It was easier than I thought! As it was a bit different from what I had read and looked about I will write the tutorial down here.

What you need:

  • wooden sticks (round slats) 1-1.2 mm diameter (from constructions supplies store)
  • bicycle inner tubes (free from cycling store – smaller entrepreneurs are more eager to help)
  • electrical insulation tape (from constructions supplies store)
  • optional – some ribbon for decoration (craft store, fabric store etc)
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • a fine sand paper (100 would be the best but I used 60 and it did the job; from constructions supplies store)

Instructions:

  1. Cut the slats so you have 2 x 40 cm and 1 x 60 cm sticks (you can vary it by your liking but this is what we choose). Sand down the ends if needed.
  2. Cut the inner tubes – you need 3 long and narrow strips and two shorter and wider ones. After you cut the tire in half lengthwise you should wipe it clean as it has some white powder inside. First the long strips, mine arre 2.5 cm wide. You can follow the lines that most tubes have on them. Just make sure they’re straight and even. Depending on the tube you can get 2-3 strips from one tire. It might be enough to use one strip for the flower stick and the other for your hand sticks but it also depends on the tire and your wrapping. We didn’t get any numbers for measures so you can go and improvise.
  3. Attach the strip with tape to one end of the stick so that the inside of the tube (that you just wiped clean) would now face outside. Wrap it around in an angle so that it overlaps in around 1/3 of its width. Remember to pull the strip while wrapping – otherwise it wouldn’t stay in place (don’t pull too much at the beginning as it would rip off your tape). My pictures are not the best for this tutorial perhaps but you can see something. It should be 1/3 over the last round, 1/3 in between and 1/3 under the next round. In the end cut the strip off in an angle so it would look even. Wrap some tape around it and just to be sure wrap some tape around the other end as well. Roughen all the raised parts with your sand paper moving it lengthwise the stick. Be careful not to sand too much so you won’t rip the rubber. If it’s your hand stick (one of the shorter ones) you’re done with it and should make another one just like so as well. If not, then read on.
  4. You can add some ribbon just for fun wrapping it around your flower stick to the lower space which you will have if wrapping correctly. Attach it with tape from one end as you start and the other one when you have finished.
  5. For the tassels/weights in the end it would be best to use a bit wider inner tube. Cut it lengthwise again and wipe clean. Mine is 10.5 cm wide while cut open. The length again depends on your liking and again the tires. The rule of thumb is it should be the length of your hand sticks so it makes 40 cm (easy to use the stick for measure). Cut the fringe to around 3/5 the width of the strip. One shred I have around 1.5 cm wide. Again you can follow the lines to keep them even length (I had 5 lines in there so I cut 3 to shreds and kept 2 for the edge).
  6. Wrap them around the ends of your flower stick so the part of your rubber strip that’s in one piece would cover the end of the stick. Make sure you wrap it so it stacks straight upon itself so it wouldn’t be slantwise. You need the full 90 degrees corner it makes on your stick for some tricks. 😉 Again, don’t forget to stretch the tube while wrapping! When finished secure it in place with tape and wrap the tape around like shown in pictures – so it would be covered from the edge until the beginning of the fringe.
  7. Test the weights – if they’re too heavy the stick will be too fast. You can try and find your liking. To correct just take off the tape, cut off a strip and wrap it again.
  8. Optional – you can try to balance the stick on your finger to find the balance point and mark it with a round of tape. It’s good for beginners to have.
  9. Ta’dah, you’re done!

I still a lot to learn with them but at least I now own a pair. And I have enough materials to make at least one more set! ^_^

IMG_7637

Veidi aega tagasi oli meil tööjuures planeeritud ĂŒks vĂ€liĂŒritus, kus pidime osalema töötoaga. Planeerisime valmistada flower sticke ehk selliseid tsirkuse trikipulki. Kuna meil on parasjagu ka EVS vabatahtlik, kes oskab neid piisavalt kasutada, et ka Ă”petada ning ma olin juba ka mĂ”ndagi onu Google kĂ€est kĂŒsinud ja videosid uurinud, et pĂ”hitĂ”ed ja vajalike materjalide nimekiri olid juba teada.

Kuna mul tegelikult on ka ĂŒks tuttav, kes oskab neid pĂ€riselt ka valmistada, otsustasime ta meile igaks juhuks appi kutsuda. Sellega lĂ€ks paar korda proovimist, aga lĂ”puks Ă”nnestus ja kokkusaamine toimus. Selline vĂ€ike koolituse meile, töötajatele, et me siis saaks hiljem oma oskusi edasi jagada. LĂ”ppkokkuvĂ”ttes vĂ”ib öelda, et see oli lihtsam kui ma arvasin! Kuna juhend oli ka natuke teistsugune kĂ”igist Internetiavarustest leitutega, siis jagan seda siin. 

Vaja lÀheb:

  • puupulgad (ĂŒmarliistud) 1-1.2 mm diameetriga (ehituspoest)
  • jalgratta sisekummid (tasuta jalgrattapoest – vĂ€ikeettevĂ”tjatjad on koostööaltimad)
  • isoleerteipi (ehituspoest)
  • valikuline – natuke linti kaunistuseks (kangapoest jm)
  • kÀÀrid
  • mÔÔdulint
  • peenike liivapaber (ideaalne oleks 100, me kasutasime 60; ehituspoest saab)

Juhend:

  1. LĂ”ika liistud nii, et sul oleks kaks lĂŒhemat ja ĂŒks pikem pulk. Minul on 2 x 40 cm ja 1 x 60 cm, aga vĂ”id vastavalt oma mugavusele seda sĂ€ttida. Otsad lihvi vajadusel siledamaks.
  2. LĂ”ika sisekummid – vaja lĂ€heb 3 pikemat-peenemat riba ja kaks lĂŒhemat-laiemat. Esmalt lĂ”ika kumm piki pooleks, see jĂ€rel puhasta niiske lapiga Ă€ra see valge puru, mis tĂ”enĂ€oliselt seal sees on. Esmalt pikad ribad, minu omad on u 2.5cm laiad. Hea on jĂ€lgida jooni, mis enamus kummidel on. Sellega vĂ”ib mÔÔt veidi varieeruda, pole lugu, jĂ€lgi lithsalt, et nad oleks enam-vĂ€hem ĂŒhtlased ja sirged. Olenevalt kummi laiusest saad 2-3 riba ĂŒhest kummist. VĂ”ib olla nii, et piisab ĂŒhest kummist nö kĂ€epulkade jaoks ja teisega saad katta trikipulga enda. See oleneb kummist, sinu pulkade pikkusest ja mĂ€hkimisest. Meile mÔÔte ette ei antud seega on see koht improviseerimiseks. 
  3. Kinnita ĂŒks pikk kummiriba isoleerteibiga pulga otsa kĂŒlde nii, et kummi sisemine osa (mille sa just ilusti Ă€ra puhastasid) on nĂŒĂŒd vĂ€ljaspool. MĂ€ssi riba nurga all ĂŒmber pulga nĂ”nda, et ta kattub umbes 1/3 osas eelmise ringiga. Kindlasti venita kummi mĂ€hkimise ajal, et ta hiljem paigast ei liiguks (pĂ€ris alguses tĂ”mba veidi vĂ€hem, et teip lahti ei tuleks). Siinkohal pole mu pildid vist pĂ€ris piisavad, aga ehk midagi ikka nĂ€eb. Riba peaks olema 1/3 eelmise ringi peal, 1/3 jÀÀb vahele ja 1/3 kummi laiusest on eelmise ringi peal. Kui oled mĂ€hkimisega lĂ”puni jĂ”udnud, lĂ”ika kummiriba ots nurga all Ă€ra, et ta lĂ”pus hunnikusse ei jÀÀks, kui jĂ€tkad lĂ”puni sama nurga all mĂ€hkimist. Kinnita ots mĂ€ssides sinna teipi ĂŒmber, kindluse mĂ”ttes vĂ”id teipi mĂ€ssida ka teise otsa ĂŒmber. Liivapaberiga karesta kĂ”rgemad osad oma valminud pulkadel lihvides piki pulka. Ole ettevaatlik, et kummi katki ei lihvi! Kui tegid praegu lĂŒhema pulga, siis said selle hetkel valmis ja peaksid teise samasuguse veel tegema. Kui said valmis pikema pulga, loe edasi. 
  4. VĂ”id lisada peenikese lindi, lihtsalt kaunistuseks, oma trikipulga ĂŒmber. See peaks minema sinna tekkinud madalamasse osasse. Kinnita algus teibiga, mĂ€ssi, kinnita lĂ”pp teibiga. 
  5. Tuttide/raskuste jaoks otstesse oleks parem kasutada mĂ”nda jĂ€medamat kummi. LĂ”ika taaskord kumm pikkupidi pooleks ja pĂŒhi seest puhtaks. Minul tuli lahti lĂ”igatult selle laiuseks 10.5 cm. Pikkus sĂ”ltub jĂ€llegi kummist ning trikimeistri meeldimisest. Rusikareegel oleks, et lĂ”ika riba samapikk kui lĂŒhemad pulgad – minul oli ta siis 40 cm (hea lihtne, pole vaja mÔÔdulinti jĂ€lle vĂ€lja otsida). LĂ”ika narmad 3/5 kaugusele kummiriba laiusest (mul oli seal sees tĂ€pselt 5 joont, lĂ”ikasin neist 3 laiuses narmad ning ĂŒlejÀÀnud 2 laiune jĂ€i serv).
  6. MĂ€ssi riba terveks jÀÀnud serva laiuselt pulga otsa ĂŒmber. Eriti oluline on, et mĂ€ssiksid selle otse, et kihid jÀÀksid ĂŒksteise kohale, mitte kuidagi viltu! On vaja, et tekiks 90 kraadine nurk pulgaga, seda on vaja osade trikkide tajoks. 😉 Taaskord, Ă€ra unusta mĂ€ssides kummiriba venitada! Kinnita ots taaskord teibiga ning mĂ€ssi teip, nagu pildil nĂ€ha – et oleks kaetud kogu serv kuni narmaste alguseni. 
  7. Testi raskuseid – kui nad on liiga rasked, on flower stick liiga kiire. Proovi ja leia endale sobiv. Et raskust vĂ€hendada, vĂ”ta teip lahti, lĂ”ika kummiribast ots maha ja mĂ€ssi uuesti kinni. 
  8. Valikuline – proovi trikipulka oma sĂ”rme peal tasakaalustada. Kui koht kĂ€es, mĂ€rgi see teibiringiga. Alustajatele tuleb kasuks. 
  9. Valmis!  

Mul on sellel alal veel palju Ă”ppida, aga vĂ€hemalt on mul nĂŒĂŒd oma komplekt olemas, pluss veel piisavalt materjali, et teinegi valmis teha! ^_ ^

Not So Valentine Teddy.

Here is a teddy bear from a pattern I had saved to make a long time ago. It belongs to Stephanie from All About Ami and is called the Valentine Teddy. I had just rediscovered my crafty side around that time and wanted to make this one but never really got there somehow. Last week I was looking through my pile of patterns searching for some I hadn’t made yet and found this adorable one.

I skipped the fuzzing part as I wasn’t sure it would work well with cotton but I think this fine fellow looks good anyway. I also didn’t add the heart as you may see. (:

I had some trouble with the bow tie (and it looks to me that mine is much larger than the original) but in the end I think it works as well. During whipping up the bits and pieces I wasn’t really sure how mine would begin the look and I was a bit doubtful about the colours and their contrast in particular but it ended up much prettier than I startet to think for a while. I really like the result actually!

I used my favourite Clover Amour 1.75mm crochet hook and 100% organic Schachenmayr Nomotta Cotton Eco yarns. I added bits of crafting felt and 6mm safety eyes to it. I first embroidered the muzzle on the felt and then glued it on the face. The hand and leg pieces I glued first and then embroidered as I wanted the stitches to go a bit over the edges.

He is another one of those I have made just for the fun of making. Unlike some that are for example commissions or presents etc (don’t get me wrong here, I really enjoy making them as well).

Last week there was also an order that I managed to finish on Saturday but can’t really show just yet as it hasn’t reached the recipient. Don’t worry, once it does you will see it too. It’s again adorable!

teddyEelmine nÀdal sirvisin oma salvestet mustreid ja Ôpetusi, et leida midagi, mida ma veel nende hulgast valmistanud ei ole. Leidsingi siis selle Stephanie blogis All About Ami saadaval olev Valentinikaru muster. 

Erinevalt originaalist ei teinud ma teda karvaseks, kuna polnud pĂ€ris kindel, kuidas see puuvillase lĂ”nga puhul toimiks. SĂŒdant ka nĂ€htavasti ei lisanud.

Natuke raskusi valmistas see lipsuke, aga lĂ”ppkokkuvĂ”ttes tuli ta tĂ€itsa OK vĂ€lja. Olgugi, et tunduvalt suurem, kui nĂ€idise peal. Uhke ikkagi ja tegevat ju ĆĄikiks ka! 😉 Osasid valmistades tekkis mul korraks kahtlus, kas ta ikka tuleb mul enam-vĂ€hem kaubandusliku vĂ€ljanĂ€gemisega ka, sest need tĂŒkid tundusid nii kummalised kohati. Samuti tekkis mul kahtlus oma vĂ€rvivaliku suhtes – kas Ă€kki liialt kontrastsed toonid said valitud? KĂ”ike seda kokku pannes mu hirmud ja kahtlused vaibusid, kuna tulemust nĂ€ete isegi – tĂ€itsa normaalne karu! (:

Valmistamisel kasutasin oma lemmikut Clover Amour 1.75mm konksu ja 100% orgaanilist Schachenmayr Nomotta Cotton Eco puuvlillast lĂ”nga. Lisasin veel 6mm turvasilmad ning tĂŒkikesed kĂ€sitöövilti. Koonuosa tikkisin esmalt ja siis liimisin nĂ€kku, kĂ€ed-jalad aga kleepisin kĂ”igepealt ja alles seejĂ€rel tikkisin, kuna tahtsin, et need mustad kriipsud lĂ€heks veidi ĂŒle ÀÀre. 

Valmis saigi siis selline karu, kelle tegin lihtsalt tegemise rÔÔmuks. Üsna palju asju olen teinud ka tellimustööna, kuid see ei tĂ€henda, et ma protsessi vĂ€hem naudiksin. Mulle tĂ”esti meeldib neid teha! ^_^

Ühe teise looma sain tegelikult veel nĂ€dalavahetusel valmis, aga ma ei saa teda veel nĂ€idata. See valmis kingituseks, aga pole veel omanikuni jĂ”udnud, seega hoian teda veel saladuses natuke aega. Aga Ă”ige pea! 

Meanwhile.

Here are some things I have done and not posted yet. There are some more but they have already continued their journeys and I didn’t take any pictures of them. I’ll go ahead and try to say a word or two about what you can see here. Scroll down to see what I’m talking about. 😉

First are a couple of bunnies of my (I guess one of the favourite patterns). The greyish one is a bit fluffy and the other one is made from using milk protein yarn – feels so soft and looks oh-so shiny and delishious. I paired it up with a super soft Pima Cotton yarn and it looks like a perfect vanilla-chocolate bunny. Or milk and chocolate if you wish. 😉

The second one is a military-man figure I did for my brother while he was serving his time in the Estonian Defence Force. It even has the tricolour flag embroidered on its sleeve. ^_^ Crappy picture as you can see but I guess I did it in the last minute again and thtat’s how it goes. These sort of pictures are what keep me from blogging. I actually don’t want to show them.

Next are the first mittens I ever crocheted. Made from a rather soft wool. Embroidered on some protective symbols from Estonian etymology. It was made as an order to my brother who gave them as a present for a nice young lady. This picture is even made using my phone I believe. The pattern is from a local magazine – Maret (first number – February ’13).

The tie-dye shirts and coloured yarns are all made as a one night dyeing event. First time so I guess not so bad. I like how the blue one turned out although it’s not one of my favourite colours to wear. I also especially love the yarns. They have more colours at the beginning and then turn more lighter as you get towards the inside of the yarn ball.

I made this bag with buttons on the top with the pinkish-purplish yarn. It turned out great. You can’t really see the bottom part but it has the most colours there.

The two hats on the balloons were made for my little cousin. They had to be vibrant in order his mom to see him clearly when he runs around the yard. I believe the brim was also wished for and one especially had to be like one of those newspaper boys hats in the olden times.

The dog with a green bow was a gift for my ex-co-worker. She really wished for a dog but couldn’t have one so I made her this. She loved it! The pattern is from here.

The rainbow .. plush was a random test. Not sure what that really is. (:

Chocolate cake with mint cheese cream and silver sprinkles – yumm!

The multicoloured cat in the middle was supposed to be a bunny as well but I ran out of yarn in the middle of the last ear. What I did was frogged the tail and the one ear that was ready and did some smaller cat ears and used the spare yarn for the tail. Can’t really see it from here but it goes until the back of its head and is mostly pink!

Yellow snail shape and the other yellow set few pictures lower from it was an order for a newborn photo prop. My first try. Didn’t really manage to take any great pictures without a baby inside them.

The white and purple shape is hard to explain. It was an order and it’s kind of an inside joke. It’s called “The Mark of Shame”.

These hunting trophies I made – I have made a bunch of them after the first one you have probably seen. I also made a bear, wolf and a wild boar. This one here sits on a trivet I also made using some scraps of a chunky cotton yarn.

Purple and gold square piece on the right edge is part of a challenge mixing knit and crochet. I use it as a trivet for my tea pot.

The pink cat was one of my first amigurumi attempts. Didn’t find it posted here somehow.

Alaskan Malamute was for a giveaway winner on my Facebook page. The winner was my classmate from high school. As she has a malamute whom she loves dearly she wished for a key chain shaped like him. It very much reminded me of the dog from the cartoon The Adventures of Small Penguin Lolo which used to be one of my favourites as a kid.

The phone case I made when I bought my (not so) new (any more) phone. It’s supposed to be a sakura branch there. I think I have misplaced it cause I haven’t seen it for a long time now.

The yellow elephant is made from corn-fibre yarn. Super soft and comfortable to use! The pattern is from Stephanie of All About Ami who translated it to English. The original artist is the Japanese Chisachi Kushima.

The Hello Kitty hats I made first for my paintball team. It was  3-man competition so only three – for me and two of my team mates. After that I got some orders so I mad 3 more for other team mates and one smaller one for ones kid. I guess you can call them quite a hit! 😀

This pink roll is the second attempt to do some Swedish Weaving. The towel and its squares were a bit smaller than usually so it was more tricky than I first assumed.

Both of the cross-stitchings are made on some samples between magazines. I love all sorts of Japanese stuff and this kokeshi looked so adorable so I just had to make it. It was a card which I gifted to my friend Linda from college. I made some other small cross-stitch projects that I gifted away but don’t have any pictures of.

Then there is a tiny cosy for my iPod and a simple cell-phone cover for my work phone on my previous job. The four-leaf-clover in a pot was also on a table there.

The clock I really thought I had shown you. It’s for a challenge in Crafteroo Magazine. You could join and then they’d send you stuff to make something cool from. You had no idea what it was. This was my result. The clock is in use and looks as adorable as ever.

The green bear was part of a gift to my brother again. He has similar hat as the bear which I knit for him a little before.

This Tototro is a giant! I don’t even remember but I believe I used some 5mm hook here. It’s taller than 30cm/12inches. Sitting proudly on my sofa. I used this larger blue Totoro pattern.

The bunny with a red hat is an absolute luxury! She’s made from the milk-fibre yarn I mentioned earlier and a wool and silk blend yarn. Her arms and legs move and she sits up really nicely. Lovely! Used this pattern.

Grey owl was an example for my first amigurumi class. It was at my work for some kids. Used this simple pattern.

The owl below it is a rattle which I made for a newborn relative. It went along with the striped elf hat. The rattle was 100% organic cottons and the hat was super soft Pima Cotton again.

Origami Yoda was also a part of a challenge. It was supposed to be something made of paper. I can tell it’s him, can you?

The yellow-green bunny is again the same pattern as the ones on the first picture here but I tried putting the ears standing up high on the head. Looks definitely different. What do you think, is it worth it?

The bowl that the bunny sits in is again part of the challenge – something made of beads. I used Hama beads and put them in muffin tray in my oven. Ruined the tray a bit and didn’t like the result so much either. The Idea is from a Pin I had seen sometime. Hey – at least I tried.

Muffin cup cosy is from a pattern by Twinkie Chan. I don’t have a mug that it would fit and I really don’t buy anything with cups that often so I fitted it nicely on glass. Not sure I made it, really, but the pattern was free for 48 hrs so I  went for it. It looks quite cute, right? Does anyone want it?

I believe you have seen the bigger sister of this doll. This time I used some finer yarn and 100% organic yarns. I believe the hook was a 1.75mm. I gifted it for my little cousin for Christmas. She loved it and her mother too! I was delighted. ^_^

Then there is the first coaster I ever made. Just to try. It stands on a small table next to our sofa and I put my tea cup (my tiny 0.5 litre one) on it all the time. There is another one in the same pattern but different colours just hanging around as well. It also finds use from time to time. Now I remember I also made a whole 6-piece set for my mum as well. Pattern is from here.

Amigurumi octopus was a gift for my little cousin. His mom wanted it really colourfull and good to grab from.

The Smurf was also for the same little boy but they are made at least a year apart. There was also a Papa Smurf included and Smurfette is yet to come. That’s actually one of the latest pieces I have made. As the red-hatted bunny and the oliphant. Here are the patterns.

The fuzzy-lacy piece is a doily blanket. It’s so soft! It has no owner yet so let me know if you’re interested! (:

The red-gold square thing is another coaster. It has a cork piece inside because I needed a thicker one for my PC table otherwise it’s surface turned all weird under the hot cup. Can’t find the pattern I used for the top, if you do just let me know! In the bottom there’s a regular granny square.

You may recognize the Fluffy Unicorn from Despicable Me. The pattern is from Little Yarn Friends. I used some wool instead of the feathers and felted them in place with a felting needle. Every day it sits next to my Totoro.

Another bunny – this time purple with a peach ear.

Next is Nublu the Rescue Dog. It originates from a children’s book by Jaan Rannap but is now also a mascot for the Estonian Rescue Board. I made it when I worked there.

The Cupcake bear was a gift for a friend who graduated high school a few years ago. Don’t think I had posted it here somehow. Perhaps because of the poor quality of the pictures again.

And one more bunny – all purple, made as an order and gifted away.

I know I have for sure made some mittens-scarvers-hats etc that haven’t been caught on pictures or perhaps something else but I guess that’s how it is. If you have any questions about a specific item let me know and I might make a fuller post about it or them. ^_^

Panin siia kokku mĂ”ned asjad, mida te veel ilmselt nĂ€inud ei ole. MĂ”ned on juba minu juurest edasi liikunud ka ilma pildistamata, seega see pole veel kĂ”ik. Üritan lĂŒhidalt ka iga asja kohta paar sĂ”na siia kirja panna.

Esimesed jĂ€nkud juba ilmselt tuttava (vĂ”ib vast öelda ka ĂŒhe mu lemmiku)mustri jĂ€rgi tehtud. Hallikas on selline kergelt karvane, teine on tehtud imelisest piimalĂ”ngast – ĂŒlipehme ja kauni lĂ€ikega. Paariliseks kasutasin seal kĂ”rval Pima puuvilla, mis on samuti ĂŒks pehmemaid ja mĂ”nusamaid lĂ”ngu, millega töötada. Kokku tuli selline ilus ĆĄokolaadi-vanilje (vĂ”i siis piima) jĂ€nku.

Teine on sĂ”durpoiss, kes valmis mu vĂ€ikevennale, kes parasjagu aega teenimas oli. Minu lemmik on sini-must-valge trikoloor tema kĂ€e peal, mis kĂŒll pildilt vĂ€lja ei paista. Ülipisike, aga oluline detail. Pilt pole just parima kvaliteediga, aga ju tegin ta jĂ€lle viimasel hetkel. Koledad pildid on ka ĂŒks pĂ”hjus, miks alati blogida ei taha kĂ”ike.

JĂ€rgmised on minu elu esimesed heegeldatud kĂ€pikud. Peale tikitud kaitsvad arhailised sĂŒmbolid. VĂ€ikevenna esitas soovi, et teha kena jĂ”ulukink toredale neiule. See pilt on vist isegi telefoniga tehtud seega, ma parem ei hakka kommenteerima seda kohta. Muster on ajakirjast Maret (1. number, veebruar ’13).

HappesĂ€rgid ja vĂ€rvitud lĂ”ngad valmisid kĂ”ik korraga. Esimese korra kohta kĂ€ib kĂŒll. KĂ”ige rohkem meeldib mulle, kuidas see sinine sĂ€rk vĂ€lja tuli, olgugi, et (hele)sinine pole mul lemmik vĂ€rvide hulgast just. Samuti meeldivad vĂ€ga need lĂ”ngad, mille otse keras Ă€ra vĂ€rvisin. Alguses on neil rohkem vĂ€rvi peal ja lĂ”pu poole lĂ€hevad aina heledamaks, pea valgeks.

See nööpidega kotike on tehtud selle roosakama-lillakama lÔngaga nendest. Mulle meeldib, kuidas ta vÀlja tuli. PÔhja poolt on ta veel vÀrvilisem, kuigi siit pildilt eriti nÀha ei ole.

Kaks mĂŒtsi, millede modelliks on ĂŒks Ă”hupall, tegin vĂ€ikesele sugulasele. Olulised mĂ€rksĂ”nad olid erk vĂ€rv, et ikka nĂ€ha oleks ja silma paistaks vĂ€ike tegelane igalt poolt, ning nokk. Teine, vĂ€hem erksam, kuigi seal on ka punast, mis jĂ€llegi pildilt vĂ€ga vĂ€lja ei paista, pidi olema selline sonimĂŒtsi moodi mĂŒts.

Rohelise lipsuga koera tegin endisele töökaaslasele sĂŒnnipĂ€evakingiks. Ta tahtis omale vĂ€ga koera, aga ei saanud omale seda vĂ”tta, nii siis tegingi talle selle. Muster on vĂ”etud siit.

VikerkaarevĂ€rviline loom on lihtsalt ĂŒks katsetus. Ma isegi ei tea, mis asi ta tĂ€pselt on. (:

Ć okolaadikook piparmĂŒdikohupiima ja hĂ”bedaste kaunistustega – mm, kui hea!

VĂ€rviline kass keskel pidi algselt olema jĂ€rjekordne jĂ€nes, aga mul sai viimast tĂŒkki, teist kĂ”rva, tehes lĂ”ng otsa. Harutasin siis need ĂŒles ja saba ka, tegin vĂ€iksemad kassikĂ”rvad ja kasutasin ĂŒlejÀÀki pikema saba heegeldamiseks. TĂ€itsa korralik pikk kassisaba tuli, kuigi siit vĂ€ga ta isegi ei paista. PĂ”hivĂ€rv sabas on roosa, vĂ€hese kollase aktsendiga.

Kollane tigu meenutav kuju ja sealt veidi all pool olev kollane komplekt olid tellimus fotosessiooniks. Minu esimene katsetus. Ei saanud neist eriti hÀid pilte, kuna polnud beebit vÔtta, keda sinna sisse modelliks panna.

Seda lillade servadega valget kujundit on keeruline seletada. Natuke nagu “oma naljaga” on tegu, “hĂ€bi mĂ€rgiks” nimetati seda.

Neid vĂ€ikesi trofeesid olen teinud ĂŒsna mitu. Lisaks pĂ”tradele ka karu, hundi ja metssea. Siin pildil on veel tal ĂŒks kuumaalus ka, mille ma tegin, et kasutada Ă€ra veidi ĂŒlejÀÀnud paksu puuvillast lĂ”nga.

Lilla kullakarva ÀÀristusega ruut on osa ĂŒhest vĂ€ljakutsest, kus pidi valmistama midagi kahes tehnikas koos – heegeldades ja kududes. Kasutan seda teekannu all kuumaalusena.

Roosa kass oli mu ĂŒks esimesi amigurumi katsetusi, aga pole vist teda siiani nĂ€idanud.

Alaska malamuut oli mu Facebooki lehe kingijagamise mĂ€ngu vĂ”itjale. Õnnelik vĂ”itja oli mu kunagine klassiĂ”de Marie. Kuna tal on endal ka imearmas malamuut, soovis ta just tema kujulist vĂ”tmehoidjat. Mulle meenutas tulemus koera Lolo ja Pepe multifilmst. See oli kunagi mu lemmik!

Telefonikoti tegin, kui ostsin omale uue telefoni, mis enam nii vÀga uus polegi. Seal peaks olema kirsioks kujutatud. Ma isegi ei tea, kuhu see kotike mul jÀÀnud on, pole teda ammu juba nÀinud. Kasutusel on mÀrksa lihtsam heegeldatud kotike, must kollase ÀÀrega.

Kollane elevant on maisilĂ”ngast. Taaskord ĂŒks ĂŒlipehme ja mugav kasutada lĂ”ng. Mustri Sain Stephanie lehelt All About Ami, kes selle inglise keelde tĂ”lkis. Originaali autor on jaapanlane Chisachi Kushima. Ta on mul selline beebi siin, kellel veel kihvasid ega midagi veel ei ole. (:

Hello Kitty mĂŒtsid tegin esmalt oma paintballi tiimile ĂŒheks vĂ”istluseks. See oli 3-liikmeliste vĂ”istlus seega mĂŒts mulle ja kahele kaaslasele ka kummalegi oma. Neid nĂ€hes tekkis ka teistel soov sarnase mĂŒtsi jĂ€rele. Lisatellimustena tegin neid veel 3 jĂ€rgmisele tiimikaslasele pluss veel ĂŒhe lapsele ka. Tundub, et pĂ€ris popp teema sai neist kogemata. (:

See roosa rull oli minu teine rootsi pÔimingu katsetus. See rÀitke oli natuke vÀiksemate ruutudega kui tavaliselt, mis tegi asja tiba keerulisemaks, aga mis seal ikka. Seekord tuli selline. Materjal on mikrofiiber ja pehme.

MÔlemad ristpisted tööd siin on tehtud ajakirjade vahelt saadud nÀidistest. Kuna mull igasugune jaapani teema meeldib, siis ka see kokeshi pilt lausa kutsus. Valmis ta kaardina, mille kinkisin oma kallile kursaÔele Lindale. Paar ristpiste tööd tegin veel, aga need on ka juba Àra kingitud ja pilte ei paista taaskord olevat. :/

Siis on veel siin ĂŒks pisi-pisike ĂŒmbris mu iPodile ja lihtne sokike endisele töötelefonile. See neljaleheline ristikhein potis oli mul ka tolles kohas laua peal.

Kella ma tĂ”esti arvasin, et olen siin nĂ€idanud. See oli Crafteroo ajakira vĂ€ljakutse, millega ĂŒhinedes saadeti sulle pakk. Esialgu ei olnud teada, mis sealt tuleb. Alles pakki avades said teada, mis sind ees ootab. Minu tulemus siis selline. Kell on igati tubli ja töökas, kĂ€ib kenasti, kui aeg-ajalt patareisid vahetada.

Roheline karu oli ka kink vĂ€ikevennale. Temale endale olin mĂ”niaeg varem sarnase mĂŒtsi kudunud, nagu siin karul peas.

See Totoro on ĂŒks hiigel-amigurumi. Ma pole pĂ€ris kindel, aga pakun, et kasutasin umbes 5mm konksu. Ta on ĂŒle 30cm pikk. Istub mĂ”nusasti mu diivaniserval. Mustrina kasutasin siit seda suurema sinise oma.

Punase mĂŒtsiga jĂ€nes on ĂŒks eriti peen tegelane. Ta on tehtud sellest samast piimakiu lĂ”ngast, mida ka varem mainisin ja ĂŒhest villa ja siidi segusest lĂ”ngast. MĂ”lemad nii mĂ”nusalt pehmed ja luksusliku lĂ€ikega. Tal on liikuvad kĂ€ed-jalad ning ta oskab hĂ€sti istuda. Muster on see.

Halli öökulli tegin töö juurde amigurumi Ôpetuse nÀidiseks. Kasutasin seda lihtsat mustrit.

Selle all olev öökull on kĂ”risti, mis valmis ĂŒhele vastsĂŒndinud sugulasele. LĂ”ppkokkuvĂ”ttes lĂ€ks ta koos selle triibulise mĂŒtsiga, mis pildi all servas. KĂ”risti on tehtud 100% orgaanilisest puuvillast nign mĂŒts mĂ”nusast pehmest Pima puuvillast.

Origami Yoda oli jĂ€lle ĂŒks osa vĂ€ljakutsest. Pidi olema midagi paberist valmistatut. Minu arust tuli vĂ€lja kĂŒll. PĂ€ris ideaalne ei ole, aga Ă€ra tuntav igaljuhul. On ju?!

Rohekas-kollane jĂ€nku on jĂ€llegi minu tavapĂ€rase mustri jĂ€rgi tehtud, kuid muutsin takĂ”rvade asendit, katsetasin kikk-kĂ”rvu. VĂ€limus on ĂŒsna teine. Kuidas tundub, kas sobib nii ka?

Kauss, milles see jĂ€nes istub on samuti osa vĂ€ljakutsest – midagi helmestest valmistet. Kasutasin Hama helmeid, ladusin nad muffini vormi ja pistsin ahju. Natuke rikkusin sellega oma vormi Ă€ra ja tulemus polnud ka pĂ€ris ootuspĂ€rane. Ideed nĂ€gin kunagi kuskil Pinterestis. Noh, vĂ€hemalt proovisin.

Muffini.topsiĂŒmbris on Twinkie Chani mustri jĂ€rgi. Mul pole ĂŒhtki kruusi, kuhu ta sobiks ja eriti tihti topsiga jooke ei osta ka, seega pidin ta klaasi ĂŒmber sobitama. Sinna istus ĂŒllatavalt hĂ€sti. Ma isegi ei tea, miks ma ta tegin, aga see muster oli 48h jooksul tasuta saadav, seega ma lihtsalt lĂ€ksin vooluga kaasa. Üldiselt on ta ju pĂ€ris tore. Keegi endale tahab?

Selle nuku suuremat Ă”de peaks te olema nĂ€inud. Seekord kasutasin peenemat 100% orgaanilist puuvillast lĂ”nga. Konks oli arvatavasti 1.75mm. Selle sai kingituseks vĂ€ike tĂ€ditĂŒtar. Nii temale kui ta emale paistis see vĂ€ga meeldivat – minu heameel! ^_^

JĂ€rgmisena on nĂ€ha ĂŒks tassialus, mu elu esimene. Tahtsin lithsalt proovida. Seisab igapĂ€evaselt diivani kĂ”rval lauakesel ja kasutan seda oma pisikese pooleliitrise teetassi all tihti. Tegin teise teistes toonides ka. Seegi vedeleb kuskil ning leiab aeg-ajalt kasutust. Lisaks meenub, et tegin neid emale veel terve 6se komplekti jĂ”uludeks. Mustrit saab nĂ€ha siin.

Amigurumi kaheksajalg oli kingitus tÀdipojale. Ema soov oli, et ta oleks eriti vÀrviline ja mÔnus kÀes hoida.

Smurf lĂ€ks tollele samale kutile, kuigi valmis esimesest vĂ€hemalt aasta hiljem. TĂ”enĂ€oliselt rohkemgi. Lisaks sellele valmis ka Papa Smurf ning Smurfiina on veel tulemas. See on tegelikult ĂŒks vĂ€rskematest tegemistest siin. Nagu ka punamĂŒtsike-jĂ€nes ja elevants. Muster selline.

Karvane halli-vanaroosa vĂ€rvi asi on pits-tekk. See on ĂŒlipehmest mĂ”nusast lĂ”ngast. Hetkel seisab omanikuta, kui soovi, vĂ”ib teada anda!

Punase-kullakarva ruut on veel ĂŒks tassialus. Sellel on veel korgist kiht sees, kuna vaja oli midagi eriti paksu. Mu arvutilaual on selline veider kate, mis kuuma tassi all kummaliseks lĂ€heb, Ă”huke alus ei olnud piisav. Ma ei leidnud praegu selle ruudu mustrit ĂŒles, kui keegi on nĂ€inud, andke teada! TĂ€nud! (:

Fluffy Unicorn! Seda ĂŒkssarve on nĂ€inud kĂ”ik, kes on nĂ€inud multikat “Mina, supervaras”. Muster tuli lehelt Little Yarn Friends. Sulgede asemel kasutasin laka ja saba tegemiseks villaheiet ning paika sutskasin nad viltimisnĂ”elaga. Tema istub tavaliselt Totoro kĂ”rval mul.

Veel ĂŒks jĂ€nes – seekord lilla, virsikukarva kĂ”rvaga.

JÀrgmine on pÀÀstekoer Nublu. Tegin selle, kui PÀÀsteametis töötasin.

Muffin-karu oli kingitus sĂ”brale koolilĂ”petamise puhul. MĂ”ned aastad vana on ta juba kĂŒll, aga postitanud vist seda siia ei ole. TĂ”enĂ€oliselt pĂ”hjuseks jĂ€lle see kehv pilt.

Ja, ĂŒllatus-ĂŒllatus, veel ĂŒks jĂ€nes! Lilla, tellimustöö, Ă€ra kingitud.

Veel on kindlasti mĂ”ned sallid-kindad-mĂŒtsid, mille olen teinud ja Ă€ra kinkinud vĂ”i kasutusse vĂ”tnud ilma pildistamata. Ja kindlasti midagi veel neile lisaks ka. Kui tekkis millegi kohta kĂŒsimusi vĂ”i tahaks mĂ”ne asja kohta tĂ€psemalt teada, andke teada. Ehk teen siis pikema postituse! (:
