Johnny Depp MiCrochet Poster, Part 9/10 by FayardHandMadeCrafts
Johnny Depp MiCrochet Poster, Part 9/10
Oct 16, 2014. My thumb hurts from the stitch-a-thon, the paper is "ironing" under the mattress, but just a few more rows to go!

Also finally introducing my new Accordion String Rack, which I invented sometime around the last Octagon post (~Aug), and found the simple design after some over-complication--rather than joining the "boards" with an extra wire, simply use the standing wire as the link. Strings not in use can be folded together, while those which are can be spread out. Removing extra boards actually shortens the accordion, unlike the magnetic master-board. Finally, the accordion is fairly easily turned, even when there were 20-some spools; as long as the pressure is centered, it keeps itself together like a bridge. (Actually it's a bit harder to turn so few boards under a wide project.)
Alligator Phone Wallet (For Sale!) by FayardHandMadeCrafts
Alligator Phone Wallet (For Sale!)
Oct 11, 2014. This cute little alligator will hungrily keep your phone and cards tucked away safely in its mouth, and to keep it from getting greedy, a little rope loop is anchored to one jaw!

The two wallets that are ready to ship will comfortably hold narrower phones of slightly greater length, but not if they are the same width as the phone shown. However, custom sized and colored sleeves are easily commissioned--simply send me a message, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can! Get one in my Etsy shop for $9.50:
Crochet Turtle Phone Sleeve (For Sale!) by FayardHandMadeCrafts
Crochet Turtle Phone Sleeve (For Sale!)
Oct 3, 2014. This cute little turtle is the perfect handmade cozy to protect those super-excitable phones! It has two carefully crafted measures of security--a slightly narrowed opening, and a "collar" that goes around the turtle's neck! It can hold small phones, up to 4.25 inches long. For Sale in my Etsy shop:
Simple Phone Sleeves by FayardHandMadeCrafts
Simple Phone Sleeves
Oct 1, 2014. Is your phone an aspiring stunt-machine? Does it leap tall purse walls in a single bound? Does it dive off tabletops when you're not looking (and sometimes when you are)? Well, these simple sleeves will not stop it (how can you really stop a born daredevil?), but they CAN keep it safer! By the power of bottlenecking, small electronics will stay inside for their nerve-wracking stunts, and the thick yarn cushion will take most of the impact. For sale, starting at $3.95! Get one in my Etsy Shop:
Time sure is slipping by! I know I haven't been posting any projects or progress pics, but I'm most assuredly working on them! Probably too many, if it takes so long to get a picture...anyway, today I'm writing to express that some of my patterns are getting price changes. It's mostly the early ones, which were priced QUITE unfairly to me, at a time before I truly understood the value of my labor. They are rising to around half of their true value, and in perhaps another year, will rise once more and completely. Lucky those who have already purchased them at the insanely good price. :)

I am surprised your gallery doesn't get more comments. Your crochet work is impressive. Have you posted it on Craftster?

Thank you! I understand the anonymity, I only started these crochets recently. I have not heard of Craftster, but I'll go look into it! :)

It's a wonderful community for people who love crafting. You'll find lots of geek craft there and I'm sure your pics will be appreciated if you share them. Take a look at the crochet section: [link]
