FEBRUHAIRY Hat Giveaway!


Oh, boy! Free hats! Not one, not two, not three, but...FOUR free hats! But there can only be ONE winner. Four hats, one winner, many ways to enter...UNLIMITED entries (sort of)! Happy FebruHAIRY! I am so clever, amirite?

Here's the lowdown on these hats:

  • They are a panda, cat, deer and owl (see picture above!).
  • All four are handmade, completely crocheted hats.
  • They are made of Fun Fur/Festive Fur and acrylic yarn.
  • They will fit most adult heads.
  • Soft! Not necessarily warm though.
  • They are machine-washable on low/gentle and safe for a tumble drying. 
  • You can get the pattern for all of these hats for $2.
  • If you win I am going to shove them all into a Flat Rate envelope very sloppily and not packaged as nicely as I package things for paying customers. *wink wink*
How To Enter

Go to Facebook or tumblr. Or both! Specific rules for each platform are outlined on the respective pages.

Happy hat giveaway entering, Internet! XOXOX

Sailor Moon Planetary Symbols FREE Colorwork Charts

I've been catching up on Sailor Stars, you guys. I also intend to one day reread the manga that I haven't read since middle school when my brain wasn't even formed.

These should be viable for knit and crochet projects, as well as other needlework. Click on the images for larger versions and feel free to share if you make something rad! Please give credit if used and link back here to spread the colorwork grid love!

Yeah, I totally didn't do a crescent moon. I'll get to that...


Check out my Facebook and Etsy Store!

Happy crafting in the name of the moon and whatever.
XOXOX

Sporty Bobble Hats and Some Other Updates

This post is long overdue! I apologize for my absence, but I got a huge influx of custom orders and now I've been trying valiantly to restock. [Shop here!]

Splatoon Sporty Bobble Hats

Over the holidays I had several inquiries about Sporty Bobbles. I simply didn't have time to flesh out the pattern between assorted custom requests, but I finally managed to squeeze one in a few weeks ago during a very brief lull. I've now made several and they're among the items I'm stocking at the moment. You can actually see how the design progressed if you look real close at these images. 

I'm going to try my hardest to keep a couple in assorted colors in my shop at all times. I'll be taking custom requests again soon too! I can make them in any color, unless you want tentacles as I have limited fabric colors on hand at the moment.

And yes, I will now add Octoling tentacles instead of Inkling tentacles if that is more your style! I will only add Octoling tentacles for custom hats and not offer them on ready-to-ship hats because they're a great deal more labor-intensive than the Inkling tentacles. I also hate sewing so you'll be paying for my pain and suffering. *wink*

If you are interested in a custom hat, please inquire via Etsy, a Facebook PM or the form on my main website. Resist the urge to send me tumblr messages, for the love of all things good in the world. I'm not going to lie - I don't care for tumblr, I rarely get on, and it doesn't always let me view my messages. My response to you will be non-existent or terribly delayed. I respond very quickly to these other forms of contact.
But enough of my bitchin'...more updates!

Banner Revamping!

I'm going to be re-doing all of my banners for all of my pages. If anyone cares! I'm excited at this if no one else is. As soon as I'm done restocking I'm going to spend a day working on snazzy new banners!

Other Stuff!

I seriously haven't had a moment to work on any personal projects. I have several stewing in my mind. Mainly, my next insanely crochet cosplay...RANGER GENERAL SYLVANAS OMG. I'm really, really hoping to get a chance to start on this soon. I also still have plans to do a series of crochet tutorials to show you all how I do colorwork...which is technically not "correct," but haters gonna hate. 

And I would really like to do a weird niche crochet-along to make a Fallout power armor helmet. No joke. T-60. I haven't even had a damn minute to play Fallout 4, of course, and I hope to also get around to that before diving into crocheting a helmet from the game. lulz

I also got a 3D printer for Christmas, which is completely unrelated to yarncrafting. More about this in a later post! I am truly a jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none, you guys.

A Giveway?!

I need to do a giveaway. Again, I really haven't had any time to prepare for one. I need to make infographics and figure out wtf to give away. I'm going to ponder this deeply as I get back to work on another Sporty Bobble...in turquoise!

Oh, oh! Expect a pretty extensive colorwork chart collection this week on...Free Pattern Friday!
