June Giveaway Winners

Hey hey hey! All right, June Giveaway is over! I think it had a pretty good turnout, with 49 entries! There were 51 comments all together, but some didn't follow the rules - not putting name/nickname, email, hero/derby/drag/whatever name in the first comment or putting multiple entries into one comment. Since they had to be in separate comments, they only counted as one. Sorry to those this happened to...
But lets move on!

Pony Marshmallow

As you may remember my first pony marshmallow, it was cute, squishy, and fits in a mug. Although, I guess I don't have mug pictures here. Another post then. I got commissioned to make two, a unicorn and a pegasus. I bought more yarn and eyes, but the eyes aren't here yet! I did have one pair left though, so I did get to make one of them.

This is Kohiru. She belongs to Milk Tea. She's a Busou Shinki Light Armor Kohiru, whatever that means. She's just Kohiru. I made the little bag a while ago and didn't know what to do with it. Perfect size for her.

Strawberries and Granny Squares

Nothing too new here. Just more strawberries again, but now with leaves and stem attached. I did make another strawberry, not part of the 10 set, since I couldn't remember how I made the others. This one's a little different, as it as a narrower tip. Made it into a brooch/pin and stuck a little flower on since it looked a little plain without it.

Mushroom Necklace

I wanted to title this post "The Mushroom of course!" but I've already used it for another mushroom related post...
Originally this was going to be part of the June Giveaway in the classic prize pack as a phone strap. I clearly decided against it, as it looked much too white and too plain, and I was already using enough of the white crochet thread in each prize pack. It could probably stand alone as a random amigurumi in a bunch, as decoration, or even a pincushion. You can make anything into a pincushion. But I'd probably lose it if I left it alone, it's too big to be a on a bracelet, and it would be a waste to make it a pin. All that's left is a necklace.

Big Macintosh Marshmallow

Of all my yarn colors the only pony, or should I say, stallion, I could make was Big Macintosh. And I did. Marshmallow shaped! He's very squishy and could fill a mug. I should take a picture of that later. A mug of Big Mac!

Strawberry Bunches

For a special order I've made a few strawberries. I still have more to make too. 10 all together. I wasn't sure if they needed to all be the same size or what, but after seeing that they were going to be for a hat and a cardigan and whatever else, I thought to do different sizes. I'm really glad Diana asked, since it forced me to buy green yarn. And maybe she could take some fancy pictures of all the other things I've made that are now hers [action shots? this blog and the facebook page need more worn photos...]

Classic/Mori Prize Progress

Finally finished up the classic prize pack for the June Giveaway. Instead of the usual lace or even adding a ruffle to the bow, I made my own. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what kind to make, like flowers or cherries, but I couldn't seem to get it down or it was just to big. Instead I altered a design I saw and simplified it, making it smaller and easier to manage.
