1 inch crochet sock monkey
Topic: Crochet Photos

This is my smallest sock monkey. He's just under 1 inch. I'd like to make one a little smaller, but I just can't seem to do it.

He was crocheted with acrylic punch thread and regular sewing thread. His details were embroidered and he has onyx bead eyes.

"Vintage" bear with cameo
Topic: Crochet Photos

This is another "vintage" bear that I crocheted. She was sparsely needle felted with two shades of wool. I wanted her to look like a Panda bear. Isn't she cute?

She's just about 3 inches small.

"Vintage" bear and sock monkey
Topic: Crochet Photos

It's been a very busy month and I haven't crocheted at all. This is one of the last bears that I made. Think I crocheted it in September. It's crocheted from cotton thread and then sparsely needle felted. I wanted it to look like a vintage bear. I don't remember the exact size, but I do know that it was under 3 inches.

The tiny crocheted sock monkey was made with acrylic punch thread. She's just over 1 inch small.

This is my mom and I. It was our very first time having a table at the Fur Rondezvous in Anchorage. Was a lot of fun and hope we can do it again.

Halloween Witch Amulet
Topic: Beadwork Photos

This is one of my amulet purses that was in Bead & Button Magazine. The pattern (including suggested Delica bead numbers) is available in my Bead Pattern Shop.

This amulet was especially fun. I used gold-toned spider charms ( on the fringe.

I've made this amulet several times as a special order. It actually works up pretty fast. I like patterns with a lot of different colors. I'm so focased on each color change that before I realize it, I'm half-way through!Smile

Dec.2004 (issue#64) Bead & Button Santa Bracelet
Mood:  bright
Topic: Bead Pattern Questions
'Tis the season to bead santas and snowmen. The emails are slowly trickling in and they all want to know the same thing. "What colors did you use for the Santa bracelet in Bead & Button?" This bracelet has been my most popular bead pattern by far!
Sometims B&B omits a few colors from my original designs (I tend to use a lot!). I did not go through my years and years of B&B mags to find the pattern, but I did pull up the pattern file available at my website  The Delica (size 11) bead numbers that I used for the actual shown bracelet are...
Hope this helps.
