While a lot of what happens here is creepy and creepy cute, sometimes we just get cute. Today is my youngest baby’s third birthday, and he loves the PJ Masks. Despite being on Disney channel, it is remarkable how many people are not familiar with this cartoon. The characters are cute and fun- three kids who dress up in their superhero suits at night to save the city. There are a couple of patterns for PJ Masks hats out there but no amigurumi. Of course, I had to change that! The patterns will go to my testers as soon as Gekko is finished (he is the last one), but I wanted to show off the two I am done with!
I was perusing Facebook, as I am wont to do. I had shared some pictures in one of my groups, of some PJ Masks dolls I am working on, and one of the ladies in the group asked if I could lend her a hand. She was modifying a superhero doll into a Punisher Doll. Punisher is a favorite here, in fact not too long ago I had modified a pattern to make a Punisher of my own. I was not, however, super happy with his logo. So she asked if I could help her create a logo for her Punisher, I jumped on the chance.
Of course, the nice thing was that her doll offered me a MUCH larger canvas, but even still, I am happy with what came out of my experiments today. So happy in fact that I have decided to offer the logo as a freebie here. Below you can see the logo pinned down, as it has a tendency to curl if its not sewn on.
If you want to make your own Punisher logo, you can use the free pattern here:

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Run away from the sharknado
It’s your greatest foe, foe, foe
Don’t wanna get eaten by the sharknado
By air, by land, by sea
I see that sharknado coming for me
I can’t run, I can’t hide
I just don’t wanna die
Ok, Ok, now I have THAT song stuck in my head again. The fact is that I have this insane thing for bad Sci-Fy original creature features. I used to say the cheesier the better, but after the new SHarknado movie came out, I am drastically rethinking that. I mean, light sabers? COME ON! But the first two were delightfully lame and cheesy, with bad one liners and improbably events. And my kids think they are cool cool. So, I had to make a Sharknado,. But there was a caveat. I wanted the sharks to be mean and real looking. I didn’t want androgenous sea creatures.
It was with this in mind, that the crocheted Sharknado was born! Inside its whirling, you will find a Great White, a Thresher, a Goblin Shark, a Hammerhead, a Whale Shark (Because you know they aren’t scary at all but can you imagine being squashed by one!?” and a Nurse Shark. Directions are even included on making the twister.
And if you just love the sharks, I have some good news. Larger versions of a couple of them are coming soon. Specifially I have been asked to make the goblin shark and thresher into larger, more cuddly versions.
My kids have had a blast. They load up the ‘nado with the sharks and start spinning it, slinging sharks at each other! Of course, they sing the theme song the whole time. It’s hilarious to watch them shriek and run away from flying sharks.
You can make your own, or if you are wanting to purchase one already completed, you can find them listed in my Etsy shop.
What in the world is this a picture of, you might ask. Let me tell you, this is amazing, thats what it is! It is a ball joint to allow my Exorcist pattern to spin her head completely around in a most possessed manner. I am tweaking my original design and reworking it to include this baby! I cannot wait to experiment with this technique even more. I have to thank one of my testers for showing me a tutorial on turning heads, when the question of making Regan’s head spin, came up in a discussion! You can watch the awesomeness here.
