Tie-dyed Easter Eggs

Went over to my parents house today to  help decorate Easter eggs. :3 My mom placed me on a special mission to work on tie-dyed eggs while the rest of my siblings went to town with the crayons.

You will need:

  • Eggs
  • White Vinegar
  • Food Coloring
  • Colander
  • Sink
  • Paper Towel

 

Step 1: Hard boil eggs

Step 2: Let eggs cool

Step 3: Place cooled eggs into a colander and set in the sink. Take 1/2 c. white vinegar and sprinkle or dip eggs in a colander. This helps the color adhere to the eggs.

Step 4: Choose two to three food coloring colors to tie-dye your eggs with. (we chose neon pink, neon blue and regular yellow) Sprinkle the eggs with the first color, swirl the colander around gently and allow to set 30 seconds or so.

Step 5: Sprinkle second color and gently swirl again. Allow to sit for 30 seconds or so. (McDonald’s eggs anyone?)

Step 6: Sprinkle third color and gently swirl. Allow to sit for 30 seconds or so. (Now they really look marbled)

A Little Bit of Poke’mon

Even I am swayed by trends. A little while back I had seen someone in my Tumblr feed who copied a scene featuring Ash and Misty in their own style. Up for a change of pace, I decided I wanted to try draw one too. Sadly I cannot find the reference image for the life of me. T^T

Printer paper, Ballpoint pen, Crayola Markers and Colored Pencils

Yes. This is my crappy 20 minute rendition of an older Ash and Misty. There is not much to say other than I should have decided before hand if it was going to be marker or colored pencil – not marker over colored pencil, and that I really should have spent time on their anatomy/proportions.

And my second Poke’mon related project… an amigurumi Poke’ Ball! Also swayed by trends, I am deeply regretting getting started on this one.

Pearl Cotton thread, Polyester fiberfill, Milward size 11 Crochet Hook

Miniatures are just not my cup of tea.  Maybe if I was using regular yarn with an F or a G hook, but this size 11 business really kills my hands.

And as amigurumi is traditionally crocheted in a continuous spiral, the colors don’t align…

Nuuuuuuuuuu~! >o<

…which I completely forgot when I got started! But it is duly noted for future projects. I think I will glue the round disc over that part… >_>;

So there you have it, my little bit of Poke’mon.
