All of these crochet items are lots of fun to make. They all have easy to fallow directions for all levels of crochet. Loved crocheting/making each and every one of them. Here are the crochet patterns, more info about all of the crochet patterns, and more pic.’s of the crocheted items.

 

The Bigger Ghost and The Mini Ghost:

P1020117

The bigger ghost came out a little bigger then the original pattern and I used smaller safety eyes then the pattern suggested. The pattern is a free crochet pattern designed by Hookabee.

You can down load your free copy of the pattern on Hookabee’s website in the free pattern section.

Here is the link to her site:

Hookabee Patterns

She also has a good podcast on YouTube you can find it just by typing Hookabee in the search section. She also has other free and payed for crochet patterns for other cute amigurumi’s on here website.

I decided that I wanted a smaller ghost so I used hookabee’s pattern as a reference and made it into a smaller scale and out popped out a mini ghost.

The yarn That I used for the bigger ghost and mini ghost is:

P1020123

The yarn I used was paintbox cotton DK yarn. In the colors yellow-green for the bigger green Ghost and Mustered Yellow for the mini  Ghost. For the eyes I used black 7.5mm safety eyes for the bigger ghost and black 6mm safety eyes for the mini ghost. Both ghost eyes were from 6060 eyes, crocheted with a furls crochet odsey hook in size D, stuffed with polly-fill stuffing, and cotton floss in black for their lips.

Here is some pic.’s of the bigger and mini ghost:

The mini burger and mini sprite bottle:

P1020122

For the mini burger and mini sprite bottle their patterns are both made by Amigurumi food. The mini burger is a free pattern that can be found on Amigurumi food’s web site under the free patterns section .

Here is a link where you can find the mini burger’s  pattern:

http://www.amigurumifood.com/2015/09/free-pattern-all-together.html

 

The mini sprite bottle can be found in Amigurumi food’s Etsy store it is $5.00 and has another way to make the sprite bottle into a coke a cola bottle as well a chicken burger pattern and french fry’s pattern. It is worth buying the pattern that you can then down load onto you computer. It has directions that are good for first time amigurumi crocheter’s as well as if you have made a lot of amigurumi’s. Lots of good pic’s. Very good directions and you get 3 patterns that are all very fun looking to make as well as different choice’s of the color of yarn for the soda flavor that you want to make. You can go to the Amigurumi food’s Etsy store by going to her web page and by clicking the Etsy circle on her page it is orange with a white E inside it.

Here is her web page:

http://www.amigurumifood.com

She has lots of other fun crochet patterns to buy and for free. Like in my blogs and podcast’s before this I have crocheted a few other items off of Amigurumi food’s web site that were lots of fun. As well as I will be crocheting some more of her items. Love all of her crochet patterns/ items.

 

The yarn for the mini burger that I used was:

P1020126

PaintBox cotton Dk. In the shades yellow-green for the light green color, for the red color it was called pillar red, for the light brown color in light carmeled , paper white, coffee brown, and mustard yellow.  For the burgers face it was done in black cotton floss for the lips, 6mm safety eyes from 6060 eyes, pink cotton floss for the cheeks, white cotton floss for the seeds on the bun. Stuffed with polly-fill stuffing for only the bun being stuffed. Crochet hook odesy hook made by furls crochet in size D.  I do plan on putting a string down the middle of the mini burger , that way all the peace’s stay together, and  that way I can hang it up some place.

 

For the Mini soda bottle the yarn that was used is:

P1020147

Paintbox Yarn in their cotton DK yarn. In the yarn colors paper white, mustard yellow, grass-green, and evergreen for the darn green color. Stuffed with polly-fill stuffing. The straw part is on stuffed  and just has a stitch in it, so that way it stayed bent, you could add a pipe cleaner or wire in it to make it even more bendy if you want that kind of effect for the straw. For the face it was black 6mm eyes from 6060 eyes , cotton floss in lime green for the cheeks and black for the lips. Crochet hook size D furls crochet odesy hook.

Here are some pic.’s of  the mini burger and mini soda bottle:

The mini corn:

P1020131

The mini corn was made with a Twinki Chan pattern that was linked to a video of her making the corn together with you in one of her payed for video classes. The web site that her payed for video was on is $4.99 a month they had a few other payment options that made it less money to get but I picked the monthly one. You get the first 14 days free. The class area that the pattern is found on has other videos and pattern you can watch as well as a few other Twinki Chan patterns and videos. Each video that you get, has the video, a pdf  of the pattern, and lots of info on how to make the items. It is great for any stage of crochet that you are at and is easy to fallow/understand as well as really fun to make and fallow along  together with someone. It really is like you are crocheting together with someone. Loved this pattern and video.

Here is the link off of the Twinki Chan sight:

Twink Chan I made another one of her patterns and have talked a little about her on my podcast/yarn chat as well as in one of my other blogs. She has lots of patterns that are free on her site and on her YouTube channel. To get to her YouTube channel go to YouTube and go to the search area on YouTube and type in Twinki Chan. Then her YouTube page should pop up, you can then go to her YouTube channel and learn to crochet /knit some yummy food items and none food items together with her. I love all of her items and will be crocheting/making more of her items. She also has a link to her etsy store on her web page and YouTube channel where you can buy her paid for crochet/knitting patterns Pdf’s.

The yarn that I used for the corn is:

D.I.Y. Project How To Make a Mini Blocking Board In Less Then 10 Min. Written Directions & YouTube Video Link.

Hello I finally made the video for D.I.Y. project how to make a mini blocking board for all of your crocheted/knitted small projects. ex. granny squares, hexagons, triangles, or any small yarn art project that doesn’t need a big blocking board to be blocked out on.

First let me tell you about why you would want to block out a yarn art project. The reason that you would want to block out your yarn art project is if it needs to be stretched out to the correct size, to make all of the crocheted/knitted pieces to be the same size, the knitted/crocheted piece got all bunched up some how , or doesn’t look the correct size to you. You then would want to block out the crocheted/knitted yarn project so it can be stretched out to the way that you would want it to look. That way you end up with a finished crocheted/knitted piece that looks the correct size/shape.

You can make a mini blocking board in less than 10 min. together with me on my video that is on YouTube by clicking on the link below or keep reading this blog. The written supply list & directions are here.

 

 

The supply’s that you will need to have on hand for the mini blocking board project are:

1)  1 Mini foam piece in the size that you would like for your project. (ex. rectangle mini size. )

2)  4 Wooden sticks that are the length that you need for your project.
(ex. wooden skew’s for kabob’s )

3) Tape

4) Scissors

5) A pen or Ruler

6) Spray bottle or you can pre-soak your yarn project in a bowel of warm/room temp water for 20 min. Then take the yarn project out of the water and ring it out gently , wrap in a towel an lightly pat it dry. You still want your project to be damp not dripping wet ,if you would rather use this way over the spray bottle way to block the yarn project out.

7) Opt. Some kind of glue if you would like to make the sticks more stable.

You can get everything that you need for this project @ most craft stores as well as wall-mart, target, an other retail stores in your area.

Here is the Pic. of all the supply’s need for the project. (Don’t forget the scissors not in the pic.)

The Directions for the D.I.Y. mini blocking board project:

Step # 1 :

First you take your crochet/knitted project stretch/pat it down onto where it fits best on the foam piece. Then you take your pen poke it into each corner/ (or measure it out w/a ruler an mark it where each corner is.)

 

2

Placing the crocheted/knitted piece on the foam piece. ( In the pic. up top. )

 

3

Marking each corner w/the pen. ( Like in the pic up top. )

 

Step # 2 :

Take the tape and cut out 4 pieces of tape. Then wrap the tape piece around the top/none point part of each stick/skew or all the way down making sure that the point of the stick/skew is not taped. As well as no sticky part of the tape sticking out. That way the tape doesn’t stick to you project and the sticks/skews don’t get slivers of wood on your yarn project

 

7

Take the tape piece wrap it around the top/none point part of the stick/skew. (Like the pic. up top.)(or all the way down leaving the point part out.)

 

Step # 3 :

Take each one of the wooden sticks/skews after you tape the top/whole stick poke it into each of the marked corner spots that you made on the foam piece.

4

Mark the corner spots on the foam piece. ( Like the pic up top. )

 

8

This pic. up top is how the foam piece should look w/all 4 wooden stick/skews in it.

 

( step# 4  opt.) If you feel that the wooden sticks/skews are moving too much or are not stacking a bunch of knitted/crocheted peace on top of each other or feel the wooden sticks/skews are moving around too much. You can then take some glue put a small dot of glue on each wooden stick/skew (or each marked hole)  place the stick back into the hole that you just made on the foam mat. Let the glue dry before placing any yarn projects onto the sticks. That way no glue gets on your yarn project.

5

You can apply the glue on to each hole like the pic. up top shows or on to each stick. Then put each stick back into the hole a let it dry.

Step #  5 :

Take the knitted/crocheted yarn art project that you are blocking out put each wooden stick/skew into the corners of the yarn project. Then lightly spray the yarn project with water.(unless you did the Pre-soak directions up top in the list of supply’s section under supply # 6 . ) If you are blocking more than one item (ex. squares, triangles, hexagons ) you can stack it on top of the yarn art that you just sprayed w/water. Then lightly spray it w/water.

 

9

Take the crochet/knitted project put each wooden stick/skew in each corned of the yarn project. ( Like the pic. up top. )

 

10

Push the crocheted/knitted project all the way down. ( Like the pic. up top. )

 

11

Lightly spray each piece. ( unless you used the pre-soak method directions up top in the supply list under supply # 6 . )

 

12

If you’re blocking more than one knitted/crochet piece at a time you can then stack the next piece on top an spray it with water.

step # 6

Take your blocking board put it some place that it will not be disturbed while it is drying. Sometimes it will take a few hours to dry other times 24 hours to dry. Most knitted/crochet projects will be completely dry in 24 hours or less. You will want it completely dry before taking the project off of the wooden sticks/skews . Once dried it is all done being blocked an should look very nice once you take it off of the wooden sticks/skews.

The finished blocked out project/projects should look very nice an the shape/size that you wanted it to be. Like the blocked out piece that is in the pic. down blow does.13

Thanks for reading this D.I.Y. project making a mini blocking board in less than 10 min.  I hope that you enjoy making this fun D.I.Y. project. As well as enjoy how you finished crocheted/knitted yarn art pieces look all blocked out.

Thank you, Heather @ Painted World Fiber Arts.
