Guess who needs a new purse?

And reading over this before posting… Oh Gods, I'm going GIRLY! But damn I like the bags I'm linking. They're cool looking and scream 'different'. Which is something I've always tried to be; a little 'out there'.

Okay I don't NEED one I just want one, so that's why I'm sitting on Ravelry looking at purse patterns that I can toy with. There's a few I've seen already that I like.

This bag… I know I will end up making and steaming. It would look really cute with the gloves I'm planning for my steampunked outfit, and it would be the perfect size to tuck away ID and money as well as a small ball of yarn and my hooks for long trips.

Though this one is another cute bag… looks like something I would carry more often.

And yeah I love small pouches. This one just looks cute and I have some dishcloth yarn left from some projects, wonder if the bags would make some good stash busters? I'll have to play around with it a little, doesn't look that hard and I might have another drawer I can empty out for little things.

I may end up having to make a few just for fun, that is after I get these blonks done, and my steam bunny… I may end up making steam bunnies, and purses for etsy, that is when I get the room to organize my things a little better.

And while I'm at it, I know I should be promoting my stuff, but a friend of mine is making cute stuff. We're probably going to do a trade blonks for a wallet cause mine's a bit bulky…

I wonder if it's bad that both of us are feeding each other's addictions… me for my survival horror (If she can find the fabric) Me for hr NCIS (tim and Abby, shouldn't be that hard to blonk them. I has something to toy with this weekend heh.

That is after making that Steamed bunny, and a Zeppelin, because I failed to find one this week for my steamed Mondays!

And yeah I should have some images up for mid week next week. Trying to get the rest of my blonks and the jewelry up, need to work on my pixel for my cards too so much to do so little time to do it.

Steamed Mondays – invasion of the kraken?

I was seriously worried I wouldn't get this done today. First it was driving around town to find a few things… then having to go back to the pharmacy for a prescription… Needless to say, now I'm home for the rest of the night and looking around…

I was trying to find an Amigurumi Zeppelin, but three searches on three different crawlers turned up nothing! Am I just not searching right or has no one come up with an Ami airship yet? If that's the case… I may have to toy with it, my niece will have her Doctor and a whole slew of air pirates! And my brother will think I'm insane.

Wait, he already does.


Because the whole zeppelin thing was a bust, I'll give you Squids, Octi, and hm, Lab stuff, because they all go together in some sort of way (Okay the last bit is because I have viruses on the brain, Resident Evil will do that to you).

First off, the story behind these squids were amusing, too bad I'm on the wrong side of the ocean (really should see if they do silly stuff like this at the National aquarium, I'm only a few hours from it and it's a fun drive into Baltimore). And the story behind them… I'm a little curious to see how I'd stand against one of the little guys, or if I'll have my fingers in splints for a few weeks.

And I know EVERYONE does at least one octopus right (Not sure what happened to CK, the housemate's daughter got him so he was probably trashed, but Titan's ruling over his empire, I really need to get him a fish bowl…). I thought that these two just looked adorable.

And yeah I'm a sucker for cats, so I had to add the pirate kitty by djonesgirlz to this week's collection. What better kitty to deal with that squid and the octi right?

And what alchemist lab's complete without a beaker? Okay yeah I know that is the wrong kind, but I grew up with the Muppets, and when I saw him I couldn't help it with the joke.

Hope you liked this week's little collection of Amigurumis. I think I'm starting to get the hang of hunting them down now. Now to work on my own steampunked Amis.

whoah lots of craziness

Currently I have a few Ami's in the works, and I'm trying to reorganize things, so that I can update here, and on my website in the same day as doing an update on the shop. 

So for a while things may look messy here I promise I'm working on it.  Hoping to make a decent banner for the blog too.  It really needs one. 

I know I owe some more, but with all this revamping I really don't feel like writing so I'll leave you with the luv bunnehz.
