crustacean senstation - crocheted crab costume with shell backpack!

my very good friend and i used to laugh for hours doing crab impressions, scuttling past windows and confusing family members and our other "normal" friends. i decided i would crochet a crab costume in honor of our memories and the many laugh-until-you-cry-and-then-choke moments. 
i crocheted a scoodie, which is a scarf with a hood, and attached crab claw pockets at the end. Since i live in Alaska, it's nice to have something to keep me warm-ish while out and about for Halloween shenanigans. i made the left claw bigger than the right claw to be crab-atomically correct. *click clack*

i also crocheted a crab shell backpack which i finished in time for the second weekend out, mostly because i always seem to lose essential things such as credit cards, phone, house keys, etc. on Halloween night. i wanted a prop that would double as a purse/backpack! i sewed a zipper at the top opening to keep my treasures safe inside the shell!

i hope you like my crab costume! it was so much fun to wear!!

football player with removable helmet!

a special request, this football player will be in the tiny baby hands of a future football fan very soon! he's an ohio buckeye football player and is holding the team mascot, a buckeye nut, in his right hand. i embroidered the red, white, and black stripes on his helmet, his shirt sleeves, and pant legs. i also embroidered his hair on after searching for "how to crochet hair" on google - i'm very happy with how the hair looks! i crocheted the entire doll in my make-up-as-you-go style! my first time crocheting a human and i'm super pleased how he turned out! this is also my first time crocheted numbers and i loved it! i hope you love him just as much as i do!
