Drawing Board, Back to It

Dear World,

 

You’ve seen creatures made of yarn, and you’re about to see them made out of felt. or fabric. or fabric and felt. or yarn and felt and fabric. You get the idea. We’ve been hitting the sketch books this week to branch out more into the wide world of plush. It’s a change of gears going from all yarn to mixed fabric, but we think this will really allow us more freedom with the designs. Should we be this excited over felt? Perhaps not… but it makes us happy. With the success of our crocheted hats on Etsy , we will also be creating some more “creature hats” combining felt, yarn, and other fabrics as well.

To satisfy our crafting ADD, we’ve also been knitting up a storm. Megan has started and restarted and restarted again (don’t ask) a woven cable scarf (pictures to come). Steff has finished an awesome cabled leg warmer, and will finish the other after a trip to the craft store ends her “I’ve run out of yarn and I need to get more before I move on to another project and forget this one forever” crises. Wow, knitting seems to be giving us the heck lately! Not cool knitting, get your act together.

 

Love,

The Ladies of Green Elevator

Halloween – A Crafters Most Important Holiday

Hi Ho! Megan the VooDoo Doll here!

Dorkyness, fun, costumes, playing pretend, hand-made things EVERYWHERE. My goodness, I love this Holiday!!!

Steff rocks the socks off of themed-party costumes, but Halloween tends to be my one big “turn myself into my own craft project” day of the year. This year was my first non cute/cartoony costume. I’m proud to say, I creeped a few people out. Victory!

I needed a costume that I could make in under 4 days and had 90% of the materials. Wednesday-Saturday (Halloween Night): crocheted tights and sleeves, made dress from burlap, felt heart, drinking straws+glitter+styrofoam+pain+hot glue+mod podge = pins, crochet headband with strips of fabric for hair, black eye pain, bright red lips stick, brown tights underneath for warmth. ta da!

Purple Creature Hat

Feel like pretending you are some insane adorable wild creature in the middle of winter, but it’s too cold? FEAR NOT! We have a solution. As usual our solutions are made of yarn. Here it is, The Purple Creature Hat!

We enjoy inventing new creatures as much as celebrating our favorite real life ones. Here is the first of our “Creature Collection.” This hat is super warm, so it is sure to bring play-time back into your winter days.

Crocheted in the round using super soft fuzzy yarn. Purple hat, dark pink ears, and extra long ties. This hat is designed to rest right at your eyebrows for maximum warmth, and creature transformation. Enjoy!
