Ms. Molly Maroon Monster

We’re happy to introduce the first item in our plush creature series! After a little sketch book planning, we’re happy to say we have a few cool items coming up. The first we have to show is Ms. Molly Maroon Monster. Hand stitching fabric was a lot of fun, and we’re looking forward to combining this technique with some of our other crocheted amigurumi styles we’ve done in the past. Molly is hand stitched faux fur/felt, stuffed with foam stuffing, durable, playable, fun. Enjoy!

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

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!

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.
