Super cute! Well done!
Hopefully I will upload the pattern before then! Unfortunately I'm currently at university, rather than at home, where the pattern is, but I'll do my best to upload it as soon as possible!
I looked at loads of photos of real cats and just built the colour up in layers. :)
While this is a very cool top that would be simple to DIY, this top is available for sale at http://andclothing.bigcartel.com/product/watermelon-vest. This is not your own project - please do not steal and make up tutorials without doing the project!
Just normal, plain felt that I picked up at the craft store - they sell it in squares where I bought it. :)
I actually used a template meant for pumpkin carving, and modified it a bit so the fabric wouldn't sag when I cut it. :) You can find the one I used here: http://i1211.photobucket.com/albums/cc424/wishgirl10/stormtrooper-pumpkin-stencil.gif
Thank you! :D
Awesome! Thanks for trying out my how-to! :)
Awesome! Thanks so much for trying out my tutorial! :) He turned out so super cute!
Thank you so much! :)
I love these! Awesome job. :)
Aww, awesome! I love it! Thanks so much for trying out my how-to!
No, no, no! Don't think that way! This is simple - you'll manage! :D
So nice seeing you here, Annika :D Congrats on being a Superstar!
Hey! Always nice to find another South African on here. Welcome! :)
I love this idea! Definitely need to try it out soon!
Aww, thank you! There's a little bit of Grumpy Cat in all of us. ;)
It's an absolute pleasure! :)
Aw, thank you. :)
Yay! Please, please post when you've finished! I'd love to see your version! :)
It's a pleasure! Thank you so much. :) I LOVE your crafts, especislly your dino cushion!
I'd LOVE to see your version! :D Please post if you do make one!
Such a pity that Gala pulled out - they're awesome!
Awesome recon! I love it. :)
Thank you! :)
Aw, blush! Thank you!
Awesome! It look great! I'm so glad that you could make use of my little tutorial. :)
My New Years resolution is to continue crafting - I'm leaving home for the first time at the beginning of next year, and going into a university residence. Because of this, I won't have my usual crafting space (i.e. my bedroom) and I'm worried that this will mean that I won't craft as much. For this reason, I'm determined to take a few crafting supplies with me, and to continue making, and, when I have a chance, blogging about it. I don't want my passion to go unfed! I'm just hoping that I can manage to sneak my sewing machine into my university residence...
It's a pleasure! I'm so glad. :)
Thank you! I'd love to see your version if you make one!
I love the printed fabric!
Hey! Thanks for the follow. Always great to see other South Africans here on the site! :)
Oh my gosh. If this project weren't awesome at all, the how-to would still be mind-blowingly fantastic to read. And the project is awesome, so now I'm on awesome-overload.
I love it! This makes me wish I could crochet. Too cute!
I love how creative and cute this idea is! Awesome way to fix something!
It's an absolute pleasure! I love all of your projects! :)
Yours is WAY more stunning than the original! Great job. I love it! :)
Very cute! Might have to give this a go.
Very nice idea! :) But are you sure it would work? I think that might be resin on the earrings in the picture.... But it would be nice to see someone's attempt!
I love it! Reminds me of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes! :D
For me, the best way to stay positive is to remember that if you don't try something, you'll never know if you can do it! Don't be afraid of failure, because if you don't get it right the first time, it's just a learning curve for next time. You can't catch a fish if you haven't got a line in the water! Surround yourself with positive people, and more than that, make sure that you are a positive influence in someone else's life!
SO cute! I love it!
Thanks so much for posting your version! He's super, super cute! :)
The fabric looks very nice and the pouch looks very cute, although it's a pity the pattern is such a nightmare! So nice to hear honest opinions on patterns, though! :D
Love it! It looks so effective and really makes a statement!
So awesome! :D I love it!
It's very rare that such a new book will be in the library. Personally, the libraries in my country wouldn't bother buying these books anyway, so I usually buy books like this for myself. It'd be nice to actually try out the pattern and see if I like it before buying the book, though.
I love a neutral-coloured bag that's medium size - it needs to be able to fit my biiiiig camera, phone, wallet and ID book, but small enough for me to be able to find what I want when I want it, and that I can wear with any outfit!
TOO stunning! I love it!!!
These holidays, it's not summer here, but winter, and as much as I'd love to travel overseas, there's something even more exciting happening on my back door step! I live in South Africa, and at the end of June/beginning of July, a little city called Grahamstown hosts our country's National Arts Festival! This festival has LOADS of incredible arts, from art and photography exhibitions, to a craft market, to hundreds of plays, music acts and comedians! So that is, without a doubt, where I'll be going this holiday. :)
I'd really love to learn to crochet so that I could give some of those adorable amigurumi patterns a try! I've been admiring them for years now! Perhaps a little bunny or a kitten for starters. :)
Where's the template for this? Am I being dim? I can't seem to see it!
This is so incredibly beautiful!
Very very cute! :) Love it!
Adorable! Definitely going to have to give this one a try :)
This is my favourite holiday photo because I feel that it encompasses some of the symbols of one of my favourite cities in the world: London, England. I took the photo on a street in London in 2009 and edited it so that the hanging flower baskets, buses, telephone booth and post box all stood out in their original colours on a black and white background. This photo always reminds me of how much I love London, and brings back incredible memories of time spent there. It's always so great to have photos to look back on, even when the moment has passed!
I had originally linked to the tutorial on the Links tab. I don't know where it's disappeared to now, though :/ I assume it is still somewhere and I can't find it, considering that someone just posted a version of it.
@Kayleigh T - She posted this project as a version of my version of it, and I did link to the tutorial in mine. It's usually not considered necessary to link to a tutorial in a version, as it's already directly linked to.
Very cute, though! :)
I love the designs you chose! Gotta love Freddy Mercury and memes :)
Wow! That's awesome - such a cool way to recycle. I'll definitely be trying that as soon as possible! :)
They look great! :) What exactly is #6 plastic? It's quite hard to find shrink plastic in my country and when you do, it's very expensive, but the times I have had it, I've LOVED working with it!
This is awesome! I love the fabric :)
Maybe I'd knit a tube map blanket, or the iconic underground sign! Or, if a land mark, maybe good ol' London Bridge. :)
The colours you've used look so great together! I love it :)
I adore this - the depth you've achieved is incredible!
I love these! Too cute! :)
I love it! Too cute! :)
My mom is a miniature doll maker, but used to work with some bigger dolls too, so she still had a pair of the eyes lying around. I'm not sure where you'd be able to find them - try asking any local pottery shops, or if you know of any doll shops, try there! Also, I'm sure you could find some online.
I'd sew myself a shirt - if a metre would provide enough for that! Otherwise, maybe a cute handbag :)
Thanks so much! :) I wasn't sure what people would think of it when I first wore it out, but people seem to really like it! :)
When making dream catchers, instead of battling to make perfect circles with wire or twigs, recycle the little plastic hoops on bottles that form the type of "safety seal".
My favourite movie to craft to is Across the Universe - a beautiful love story, and some of the most fantastic Beatles songs of all time!
I love it! So cute!
Did you use a stencil/pattern? Or was this free-hand painting? :)
I love this so much I think I might start crying. Too incredible.
I'd love a temporary tattoo of a dandelion, with some of the seeds floating away!
Is the pattern for this given? Perhaps I'm just being blind, but I can't seem to find it. :(
I made it using this how-to: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/fleece-dino-hat
It'd be fun to do a whole set of Lady GaGa cake pops; one for each of her zany outfits! I'm not so sure about her meat dress though... eek!
Ahh, okay. I've lived here all my life... First in CT, the Joburg, now PE. I've been to England a few times, though, and I love it there. :) How long have you been here now? I see you're 18? (Not stalking, promise!) Have you just finished matric or are you in your gap year now?
That's actually the main reason I added you! :D So cool to find someone else from here. I'm from Port Elizabeth, in the Eastern Cape! :) I see you're originally from England... What're you doing here? :O
So cute! Love it. :) Thanks for adding your version!
This is too cute <3
It'd be super easy to turn a current beanie into one of these! :) Just cut out the eyes, ears, nose and tongue, and stitch a mouth. Just stitch the face on! :)
It's a pleasure! :D
Your projects are all lovely! Thank you so much for your kind words :)
I'm fantastic thank you, and you? :) x
I cut up old t-shirts for the panda and some of the balloons, and for others I just used scraps of old cotton fabric. :)
This is too gorgeous. I love it. <3
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for your kind comments! <3 Since quite a few of you seem to want a tutorial on how to make little Henry, I'm currently working on a how-to for a monster very similar to him. It will hopefully be up this week or, if not, towards the end of the month. Thanks again for your kind words!
Thanks so much! Your stuff is also awesome! :)
Thanks :) I don't actually have a pattern - I just kinda cut as I needed, but for the body I made one large ball and then a smaller one to put on top, using 4 identical pieces. I really wish I'd made a pattern for this since I think it turned ot pretty well! :P Sorry Jet!
I absolutely adore your blog :) very inspiring, I love your style xxx <3
Rimokidddddddd <3 thanks for the add my friend :)
Hey there ^_^ I've been reading your blog religiously for quite a while now, and you're kinda sorta my hero :)
