Crochet BMO Scarf

Rose Henderson actually wrote this crochet pattern in 2014, but since the southeast part of the United States is finally starting to get chilly, I thought it was time to share this.

Rose said her 9 year old asked if she could make him a scarf that no–one else had at school. They compiled a list of his favorite TV programs, had a look around to see what was available in local stores and whittled the list down to BMO from Adventure Time. Thoughtfully, Rose posted her entire tutorial on this scarf on her blog, and even included a PDF of the pieces of BMO’s face, to trace onto felt.

Amazingly enough, this was Rose’s first crochet tutorial and it’s very clear and concise.

“Adventure Time” Mini Quilt

Roler recently posted this mini quilt on Craftster that she made. She made it for a cartoon-themed swap. Her partner loves “Adventure Time,” so Roler decided to make her a mini quilt wall art with her four favorite characters.

For anyone not familiar with the show, the characters, starting clockwise from top left, are Finn the Human, Lumpy Space Princess, Peppermint Butler, and Jake the Dog.

Roler said it’s a beginner quilt for her and about the size of the average place mat.

Breakfast Princess

I think one of the cutest aspects of “Adventure Time” is all of the different “princesses” on the show. Case in point: Breakfast Princess.

Lapine403‘s daughter, of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, wanted to be Breakfast Princess for the 2014 Calgary Expo. Lapine403 said this was a pretty simple costume to make: a circle skirt over a tutu with wire from a pop-up hamper for structure. The pieces of toast are 2″ foam with pillow covers out of a polyester suede. They are pinned to a tank top so she can remove and keep them as pillows.

Update on the “Adventure Time Chair”

Last week, we had an entry about the chair Reallylovely, from over at Imgur, made of Finn from “Adventure Time.” Since then, Reallylovely has posted an update on Imgur about the chair.

Reallylovely found the chair frame, without a seat, at an antiques shop, saying she first started painting Dia De Los Muertos skulls and designs on chairs last year, and re-designing old furniture has quickly become a life’s passion.

And for a nice little addition, Reallylovely said the chair includes three coats of glow in the dark paint on his hood and socks, directly over the white paint. The back of the chair is entirely white.

And yes, it’s still for sale, if anyone wants to contact Reallylovely.
