I had someone ask me what I'm working on right now, craft-wise so I thought I'd post a journal for anyone else who's curious.
I'm working on lots of things at once, as is typical for me
I'm crocheting an LSU-themed afghan for my dad. It was meant to be a commission for someone but they changed their mind after I quoted the price. I may still try to sell it but most likely, no one will give me what I want for it so my dad will wind up with it.
I'm also working on Razul for Kerrigore
. He's coming along slowly because he has to be the most awesome thing I've made to date. Not because Morgan (that's her name) says so but because I say so. Ah, speaking of which, she ran away to Tumblr (kerrigore.tumblr.com
) where you can see WIPs of her awesome work. She also runs an AMAZING writing advice blog (slitheringink.tumblr.com
) where she gives, well, amazing writing advice
I'm crocheting myself a mesh shirt from the pattern book my coworker gave me. It's coming along quite nicely, too. Next I'll have to figure out how to make myself a true fishnet style mesh shirt
I'm trying to figure out a pattern to use for Mr. Sticky, Doomie's voodoo doll in the comic "Overcast with a Chance of Doom" (chanceofdoom.com
) by the awesome djsprockets
<- Mr. Sticky is in Doomie's hand in the last panel. I think it will be easier to make his details with felt than trying to color swap. The pattern deciding is hard because I don't know if I want him big and cuddly or small so that I can make him a coin purse. If I like how it turns out, I think I'll make another to send to Robert. That's if I like it.
I'm so hard on myself when it comes to crafts because I've been crafting so long
I'm also trying to figure out who/what to make a purse of. I'm wanting to crochet myself a plushie purse and have no idea who/what to use for it. I may just make a little purple purse with a skull on it. My sister suggested Writhe or Shine from "Writhe and Shine" (writheandshine.com
) but I'm trying to use up stash yarn right now or I totally would. I only have two large skeins of black yarn and it will take most of one to make my mesh shirt and the other one plus the left-overs from the shirt will go toward making Razul, who is very white but wears all black, and Mr. Sticky. If there is enough (any!) black yarn left after I finish those projects, I may make one of those guys. Most likely Writhe because of his boots
I'll add other projects as I start on them
Keep It Creepy,
I'm not working on doll mods right now because I put them away in an effort to organize. After I clean/organize my craft stuff some more, I'll get back to them. They take up a lot of space when they're laid out to dry and I have to constantly test the clothing for them. It's very fun but a bit tedious.
