Crochet Tutorial: Anatomical Heart Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Anatomical Heart Amigurumi

Nate loves a good horror movie, I love crochet and “Poe”try, and we both love to love. I hope I’ve captured the essence of that in this project!!

I’ve got to “hand” it to you, he’s definitely got my “heart.” I hope you didn’t think that was “tachy.” I’ve tried to “organ”ize my puns so they always make sense. People might think that I’m so crazy about Nate that “aorta” be locked up, but he has the “key to my heart.” Sometimes I wondered if “antibody” was out there who understood me, and there he was. Nate “muscle”d his way into my “life.” In the “pulmonary” start of our relationship, I might have told him “A-fib” or two about how I felt. I didn’t need a “ventricle”oquist to speak for me. I was truly “pumped” about meeting him! “O,” I’m “positive” I won’t ever “bypass” telling Nate how I feel again. I sug”chest” we always express how we feel. I hope I never “skip a beat” when it comes to loving him. I promise to “pace” myself and not take our love in “vein.” ♥ Nadia

Crochet Tutorial: Ghost Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Ghost Amigurumi

How is everyone on this *boo-tiful* day? For some time, before I release these Punny Valentine projects, I spend a *spooky* amount of time *haunting* around for ideas. A lot of the ideas get the *boo-t*. That whole “what *ghost* up must come down” happens with a lot with my ideas. I get excited for some, and then some fall flat! Many take *float* in my mind and are a *scream*! You can *scare* up inspiration from anywhere and make it a pun. Some things won’t have a *ghost* of a chance, but it *ghost* to show you that many things can!

Crochet Tutorial: Beast Costume Gloves

As I make progress on the costumes that I am designing for Nate and myself for Halloween, I was puzzled over how to make a pair of Beast Mitts. I pooled over ideas of what would work, what would be comfortable for an evening of partying with our friends, what would look like a pair of paws with claws? All these questions are answered in this pair of open finger gloves.

beast3

These mitts are not meant for freezing temperature days. Just by appearance, it’s obvious why. These are strictly for costume purpose. However, but omitting the finger/claws you would have a basic pair of fingerless gloves or hand warmers.

I used Red Heart Boutique Fur to cover these paws. You are free to use creative choices for the type of fur you would like to use. You can create a different look by using different types of furs.

The pattern can be adjusted for any size hand. In my video, I created this pair to fit a larger sized man-hand. With easy math, you can make this pattern from child size to an XL hand size. Have fun with this costume/prop accessory. It is perfect for so many designs – wildcats, bears, lions, werewolves, beasts, monsters, etc.

beast4

Here is the link to the hat which was the first part of this costume.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make these Beast Costume Gloves:

Crochet Tutorial: Halloween Table Runner

Crochet Tutorial: Halloween Table Runner

Many times I have made suggestions of ideas on what you can make using the squares from our 365 Days of Granny Squares. Recently, I designed the Spinning Spider Granny Square (Number 266) and The Web We Weave Granny Square (Number 246). I began thinking about a project that I could make to tie these two in together that would work for a table runner or other Halloween related item.

I decided to create a look that has the spider spinning from the web. Doing that required a bit of adjustment on the placement of the spider on the square. In my original Spinning Spider Granny Square Video Tutorial, I demonstrated how to make the square with the spider running vertically on the square. In the Table Runner, I made a few stitch adjustments, I turned the spider to go on a diagonal to achieve the desired results for my finished work, allowing me to run Slip Stitches creating a web strand from the bottom (spinneret) of my spider to the Web square. Please see the video tutorial for instructions below to make this adjustment.

runner

Then, I created duplicate sets of square Numbers 246 and 266 of our 365 Days of Granny Squares to create the ends of our runner. I combined these blocks with the solid granny square (Number 2) that I used with various color combinations of black and orange or black and white to match the other squares in this project. Note: You do not have to make these adjustments nor use my colors. This is creator’s choice.

This video is a tutorial on how to assemble the squares and add the border detail to finish off this great Halloween table runner. You will find the links and videos to the squares that I have already filmed prior to this project. Not interested in the runner? Why not make additional squares to make a lapghan or blanket? Let your imagination be your guide.

Crochet Tutorial: Spinning Spider Granny Square

Crochet Tutorial: Spinning Spider Granny Square

I created this Spinning Spider Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting design! I hope you enjoy making your square!

This Spinning Spider Granny Square is a great match for The Web We Weave Granny Square! Make them both into a big blanket for a spooky afghan!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Spooky Eyeballs

“I always feel like somebody’s watching me, and I have no privacy!” You’re going to feel that way too, when you make yourself a set of these creepy plush eyeball amigurumis!

This is an EXTREMELY simple, but fun project where multiples can be created in a short period of time. I made these for a Halloween party that I have coming up, but the ideas for these are limitless!

Not only can you use these for spooky decoration by placing them in a jar or scattering them on the buffet table or giving them away for party favors for kids, but you can also use these for fun games like bean bag toss (fill them with beans or rice instead of poly-fil). These would be great for juggling. Attach a jumpring to a key ring and you can make a keychain! You can fill it with flax or rice and make a hacky sack.

Eyeballs

If you do not want to make the eyeball design, this is a great way to make a small sphere. You can make these in solid colors, or multiple colors. If you make these in holiday colors, they would fit with any time of year festivities! These are just a few of my ideas, but we have such a creative crochet community, I’m sure you can come up with more. Leave a comment with your ideas!

Today’s blog includes an easy to follow instructional video as well as a FREE written pattern. Let me see your creativity at work!
