Movember (No Shave November)

Have you guys heard of this thing called Movember? It's basically a fundraising campain where you grow a mustache to "raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer" (us.movember.com). I think it's awesome, but what about those who either, can't grow a mustache, or aren't comfortable with their facial hair growing abilities (like myself)? Well have I got a solution for you!

Many of you have seen my previous pattern for a mustache that I put up a while back, well now get ready for the new mustache of the season....

HorseShoe Mustache!


Many famous people have sported these bad boys throughout the years, like Hulk Hogan, John Lenon, and Seth Rogen, and now, you too!!

Along with this bad boy comes these sweet sideburns that can be attached to glasses, you may have seen them on the Early November Giveaway I did a while back.

I know it may be a little late, but better then never, here's the pattern for the Horseshoe Mustache and Sideburns!

Winner for the November Giveaway!

So Sunday was the end of the November Giveaway, and the winner is.......

Casa De La Zombies!

She was the first to guess the one answer that was the only one everyone got, which was #2, The elf hat. But heres the problem, Casa De La Zombies, if youre reading this, I don't have any way to send you your winnings, or contact you, so if you can, comment on this, or email me at louies.loops@gmail.com so I can send you it! Haha

So here are the answers!


So this is supposed to be a fox tail, the finished product is coming very soon.


Like I said before, this is an elf hat with removable ears, haha. Pretty similar to the wizard hat posted a few weeks ago.


This one is easily the most difficult.
Okay, so this one wasn't really fair to be honest. :/ sorry. It's a couple of sideburns, that can be put on glasses. You should see it later this week, along with the pattern. Again, sorry about making it confusing haha.

Thanks again to everyone who guessed, and keep checking back for more giveaways, and the hats and patterns that will be coming soon! And again, Casa De La Zombies, contact me please!

November Giveaway, just a couple days left!

So the end of the giveaway I posted a couple weeks ago is on Sunday!! So quick, get your answers in! Here are the three items again, just post in what you think they are, and you can win one of them! :) Here are the more in depth rules.




This one is easily the most difficult.

So I guess they're kinda tough, so here's a hint, and I'll try not to tell any tall tails, the last one involves No Shave November. Good Luck!! :)

Halloween Costume

So Halloween was Monday and I was a Dungeon Master (my girlfriends idea). It's a variation of the Christmas Hat, but with stars, and button on ears. Oh, and a cool beard that connects to my glasses! All of which are coming soon in either pattern or buy able form, or both!

I'm selling these wizard hats here, but not the beards just yet (still needs to be perfected)!

So here's a few more photos and a pattern for the little stars on the hat, because, why not?

Some photos:


Here's a photo of the final product:
-Lion Brand Cotton/Lily Sugar'n Cream Yarn/Lion Brand Cotton-Ease Yarns (basically any 100% cotton works)
-Size US-G/4.00 mm Crochet Hook

-SL.ST = Slip Stitch
-SC = Single Crochet
-HDC = Half Double Crochet
-Ch = Chain

Rnd 1: sc 5 in 2nd ch from the hook (5) Don't turn.
Rnd 2: sl.st in first sc, [ch 4, sl.st. in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next, hdc in next, sl.st in next sc] repeat 5 times. (to end)
cut and pull yarn through, sew in end.

Really easy and quick pattern.

By the way. I know I'm basically giving away one of the answers in the November Giveaway, but there's also somewhat of a hint for another answer!

Lastly, these ears and hats are available for sale here, and I've got some great ideas for these ears so keep in touch by Facebook or email!

Halloween Cupcakes

So today we're having family and friends over for a Halloween dinner, and for desert my mom made these neat cupcakes with witch hats on them. So I thought this would be a good time to tell you guys about a lady I met named Brenda Vanover! Brenda created the idea for the cupcakes and make really need things with candy and sweets. Seriously, she has the "eye" for all things candy and makes things that are truly impressive, but still simple to make! She runs sweetsimplestuff.com where she shares her creations! I strongly recommend you guys check her out.

So for the hats, Brenda uses York Peppermints, but the ones my mom bought were shaped like pumpkins for Halloween so they didn't work and she had to improvise and use the cookie parts from Oreo's. They're made with a Hershey's Kiss, some frosting, and a York Peppermint. You can find the instructions at Brenda's site here.

Here's one of the great things she uses the hats in.

Keep an eye out for this one!

Early November Giveaway Game!

So Novembers almost here, and with it, will be coming some great new crafts and patterns! But the things I'm planning are not exactly finished yet. So, I thought why not give a sneak preview of whats to come, as well as making it into a game! With a prize of course. :)

So here are three different items that are not finished yet, but are on their way, and enough done to be able to tell what they are. But it's not going to be easy. The rules of the game are pretty simple, you have to guess what each of the items are and post your guesses in the comment box below or on Facebook. Whoever comments with the most correct answers fastest will be shipped one of the items! Pretty simple. This game will end on November 15th because that's when I'm going to start posting the answers! Good Luck!

Here are the items to guess:




This one is easily the most difficult.

So there you have it! Let the games begin and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Taking Crocheting to the Future

So I'm somewhat, okay a lot of, a nerd. For those of you who arn't or maybe didn't know, there's a little convention called Comic Con, and last Thursday through Sunday all the lucky people of New York had their 6th annual Comic Con. Unluckily for me I live in California, and I'm also broke :) but to commemorate this event and kinda commemorate Halloween, which is just around the corner, I decided to make a nerd based crocheted item (the first of many more). For those of you who don't know, this is known as a Brain Slug from the show Futurama. It attaches to someone's (or something's) head and controls them, kinda making them into a zombie like state. Any how, you can see a video of the episode with these guys here.


Here are some photo's of the finished product:

-Lion Brand Cotton Ease Lime Green
-Size US-G/4.00 mm Crochet Hook
-White Felt
-Small (about 1/4-1/2") Black Button
-A little bit of stuffing

*First make a tiny ball of yarn separate from the main ball for the antennae.

Rnd 1: sc 6 in 2nd ch from the hook
Rnd 2: sc 2 in each st (12)
Rnd 3: sc in next st, inc in next st, Repeat 6 times (18)
Rnd 4: sc in next 2 st, inc in next st, Repeat 6 times (24)
Rnd 5: sc in next 3 st, inc in next st, Repeat 6 times (30)
Rnd 6: sc in each st (30)
Rnd 7: sc in next 4 st, inc in next st, Repeat 6 times (36)
Rnd 8-17: sc in each st (36)
Rnd 18: (on outer stitches only) [stitches separated by commas] dc 1 tc 1 dc 1, sl.st, dc 1 tc 1 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, sl.st, dc1 tc 2, tc 2 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, dc 1 tc1 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, dc 1 tc 1, tc 1 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, dc 3, sl.st, dc 1 tc 1 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, sl.st, dc 1 tc 2, tc 2 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, dc 1 tc 1, tc 1 dc 1, sl.st, sl.st, dc 3, sl.st, dc 1 tc1, tc 1 dc 1, sl.st.
Now you should find two spots on the head, where the antennae will go, make them equal distance. Choose a spot on the head and insert hook, tie a slip knot and pull it through, then insert hook in next spot directly below the first and loop over and pull through creating a ch. Now stick the hook back in the second spot and pull the rest of the yarn through the spot but not through the first ch. Then ch 10 more. Sl.st in second ch from hook and then in each ch to the bottom, tie off and pull the rest of the yarn into the middle of the body to hide the yarn. Do this twice for each antennae and curl the end a bit.

Now cut a circle out of the felt, and sew the button on before sewing the entire eye onto the body.

Now back to the body..
Rnd 19: (on inner stitches of Rnd 17) sc in next st, dec in next st (24)
Rnd 20: dec all around (12)
Rnd 21: dec all around (6)
Rnd 22: keep dec around untill closed up.

You can sew on a hair clip or onto a headband to keep it in your hair, but other then that, your brain slug is done and can happily suck out all the grey brain matter it can get it's slime on!

I make a great zombie slave
You can buy this guy here!

Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair

So last Sunday was the Rotary Street Fair in Thousand Oaks, California, where I live. It was the first street fair I've ever done, and all my hard work paid off because I did pretty well!
The one really disappointing thing about the street fair is that I brought my camera and took tons of beautiful photos, only to come to the realization later that I had forgotten to put a memory card in the camera... *facepalm. I feel so dumb haha. But I caught a bit of luck and took a few with my phone. Those who showed up also got a sneak preview into some of the new hats I'm going to be coming out with this next month! I also got some really great ideas about some new hats, and selling at boutiques. So those of you that were there and saw some hats that you can't find here on the shop, please be patient, they're on their way, just need to take the photos first! Thank you for everything! I had tons of fun! I can't wait for my next street fair! So feel free to check out the photos that I have of the event below!

Bat Hair Accessory

Just in time for Halloween comes a new addition to the Etsy shop. You might have seen the little bats here, but bigger is always better.

If you haven't seen it yet, here's a link.

These bat hair accessories are available on a hair clip, or headband and come in two different colors.

You can get buy these here, or learn to make them here!
