Ice Cream Monster AAaaAaah!

This is the most frightening creature EVER!!!!!

….If you’re an ice cream cone.

This fellow is super nice but he devours frozen treats like.. well… a monster. Stands at 5 1/2 inches high. Crocheted using cotton candy light blue and sprinkled with dark blue berry polka dots. Eating a crocheted strawberry ice cream cone. Cute, slightly crazy, and as sweet as the ice cream, this is our Ice Cream Monster!

Hatty hat hat hat

We would like to start out by saying… we are NOT cold weather fans. Seriously. Not at all. We both whine and complain from about October-April. However… In our great battle to defeat Jack Frost, we have a wonderful excuse to make millions of cute hats, scarves, mittens, sweaters and so on. Right now Steff is in the middle of an amazing complicated sweater. I am the child who never grew up, so I’m been making a series of themed hats. Our first to show… The Sea Monster Hat!

Loch Ness gave sea monsters such a bad reputation! Clearly, they’re a nice fun loving bunch. Care to join the party? This can be your official Sea Monster Hat to go play under the sea, dress up for Halloween, or enjoy any other chilly day of the year.

This hat was crocheted in the round with soft fuzzy aqua and purple yarn. The hat has dainty ear covers, and extra long ties and tassels at the end. Accented with a sea monster style and beads.

The Weather Was Nice To Us!

I suffered for my art!!! By suffer, I mean got a bug bite in the park… By art, I mean yarn animals… By all of this, I mean we took new photos in the park!

Pretty Piggy Front

Pretty Pig

This is our pretty pig. She prefers frolicking in fields of flowers over the laying around in the mud. She is crocheted from yarn with felt accents, and her flower garland is made from origami flowers and sealed with Mod Podge. For the rest of the photos click here.

Unidentified Creature

Unidentified Creature

At the moment this is an Unidentified Creature. Although he looks like he and the space hamster may have come from the same location… He is made from yarn with felt accents, wire, and yarn pom poms. What ever he is, I hope a merry little army of these guys takes over the world, then enforces their jolly way of life upon us. “You earthlings will be play games, sing songs, and dance! NOW!!! HAHAHAH!” For the rest of the photos click here.

All photos taken and enjoyed in Prospect Park.

The First, and soon to be not the only, Photo Shoot

We’re not ready for an Etsy launch yet, but things are happening for us here at Green Elevator. Since Steff and I decided way back when to start a business we’ve been on a craft mission, an exploration of craft, a journey to the crafter with in! That basically comes out to be 5 billion (no more no less) half finished/started projects.

However, I think Steff has started to master the art of aprons while I have continued and improved my amigurumi-crocheted creatures. The first official Green Elevator items have been photographed and posted to
flickr. Nothing is for sale yet, but you can get an idea of some of the things we have cooking.

Hedge Hamster

Hedge Hamster

I made this guy several months ago when we were first thinking of starting a business. I was going for a woodland type creature, and he turned out to be a mix of a hedge hog and a hamster. So that’s exactly what he is.

Space Hamster

Space Hamster

This was my first attempt with using wire in an amigurumi project. I had no idea what this was when I finished.

Conversation:

Megan: What is this thing?

Steff: A hamster from space?

and so he is..

Punk Rock Bunny

Punk Bunny

Ah this project was fun walk down memory lane. I, and many of my friends, went through a “punk” phase in high school. Blue hair, baggy jeans, old thrift store t-shirts – the whole bit. Looking back at pictures we looked about as hardcore as this bunny does. But who says a little bunny can’t be badass? Um.. you know.. in his own way.. kind of.. Anyway, Rock on little guy.

Vegetarian T-Rex

Vegetarian T-Rex

A vegetarian T-Rex. Maybe we’re not slaves to nature after all. Or maybe carrots are just that good. The gentle reptile to my right is a little different than my previous work. Slightly more muppety/cartoony, and more complex. He was created using many little swatches of crocheted fabric sewn together. I would love to try another dinosaur since this one was a great learning piece.

All the pictures were taken at the beautiful, amazing, and just a little big magical – Prospect Park. Field trip to Coney Island next? What?
