I sketched this and started painting it a bit while watching tv tonight. I really like this weird thorny tentacle plant thing but I can't decide what color to make it.
I finished R2-D2 tonight! These two make quite a pair! Now I have to figure out what to do for my next project...
I sewed 2 of the 4 detail pieces on tonight. There's 2 small ones left to do. I'm in the home stretch with this project!
I finished making all the various lenses and lights that need to be sewn on. Now all that's left is the sewing.
I made a few of the various lights and boxes that will need to be sewn on. Hopefully I can get everything to fit properly since I resized the hat a little bit.
Made a little progress on the details of my R2D2 beanie. I didn't do a whole lot today because I'm trying to avoid burning out on crochet before I finish this hat. It must be working because I'm excited to get back to it tomorrow.

I'm so ridiculously proud of this thing even if the fit is a little big for me. Not only does it look awesome but I made it from start to finish in only 3 days!
A new day a new project. Well this is a bit of a cheat...I started it yesterday once I finished the octopus because I was so excited about the pattern. Next I'll start working on the lenses so it looks like a proper BB8. From this pattern.
It took a little under a month to make this cutie from start to finish. It's my favorite thing I've created for this blog project so far! This is definitely the most complicated crochet project I've ever done. I doubt I would have even attempted it before. When I look at it next to the... Continue Reading →
