So Excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went on ravelry yesterday and saw someone had finished a project from one of my patterns. It was so awesome seeing pictures of their finished Bowser. I couldn't believe how cool it was to see that my pattern made sense and somebody was able to make something from the gobbledy gook that came out of my head.


The crocheter's name on ravelry is Nesan and she's from Japan. I think her Bowser is just amazing and I love that my pattern has been used to create such a fun amigurumi.

Please, if you have made anything using one of the patterns on this blog, send me photos!!!!!!!!! With your permission I'll post them to share with others.

This shows the removable fuse cap to open the bag.
I found a photo of a bob-omb bag online months ago, but there wasn't a pattern. The creator, BunnieBard had posted some notes on how it was made and this is my interpretation.
Hope you like it.
Here is my pattern based on the notes from above

Mushroom Bag

I modified a pattern from Ravelry.com and made a drawstring mushroom bag. The original pattern is by Eva Christine at this page http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mushroom-drawstring-bag
All I had to do was shorten it a bit from the original pattern and add the details.

Using black yarn and a back stitch put the black rings on the back of the shell
Attach head and arms to the belly, the head should hang forward slightly to go over the cloud

Sew cloud pieces together with one in the middle and 5 around, I sewed them to the middle for 7 stitches each so they overlap, then I sewed the sides together for 4 stitches each, then the back piece, before closing the final side stuff firmly and shape.

Attach shell to back of cloud with the chin laying over the cloud and the arms looking like they are hugging the cloud.

Piranha Plant scarf and hat set with pattern



Here's the Piranha Plant scarf, I'm working on a hat to go with it, I can't decide if it should be a regular piranha plant or a Piranha Pete. We'll see what happens.
 Well, as you can see I went with the regular piranha plant hat, I tried the Pete hat and after frogging it several times decided to go with this. And now the pattern

Chain Chomp hat and scarf *now with pattern*

I ran out of stuffing so I started making hat and scarf sets from Mario characters. First up is Chain chomp. I'm debating or whether or not to back the chains with some black fleece or something to make it warmer. It was fun though so I'm think of doing some more, maybe a king boo hat and little boos scarf, or bob-ombs, mushrooms, a piranha scarf and Petey Piranha hat? Guess I'll just see what yarn color strikes my fancy and go from there.

Chain Chomp Hat and Scarf Set

Materials
Black, white and gray yarn
J hook for main parts
H hook for detail parts
yarn needle
