1  My first Amigurumi! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by poppiesinjuly on: July 13, 2008 02:24:52 PM

My first project was the trio of little birds I made from the pattern I found here.


I just happened to have the three bright colors of the same yarn in my stash, so I went for it.  Because the birds crochet up so quickly, they make a really satisfying first project.  I started with the yellow, then the pink, then the blue and feel like I improved as I worked on each of them.

For my next project, I chose the "Best Bunny" project on the Lion Brand Yarn website.  Unfortunately, I chose to use this fuzzy pink angel hair yarn that I got for nearly nothing at a JoAnne that is going out of business.

OMG, I thought that yarn would be the death of me.  After completeing the head and body and several mangled arms, I scrapped the rest of the pattern and made the arms, legs and ears on my own.  Even with my limited experience,  I think Lulu, the pink fuzzy bunny turned out pretty cute.  Smiley

Thanks for checking out my Amis.  Smiley

2  Little Miranda- my cat stuffie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by poppiesinjuly on: May 14, 2008 08:18:35 PM
I have a black cat who I love to bits, so I decided to make a little stuffy version of her.  Well, I did take some artistic license, but I love how she came out... 

I ended up taking off the pink ear bits...

Here is real Miranda in her tutu for comparison...

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

I was so sad when I put my first Poppet in the mail to my cousin for her birthday that I started a Poppet for myself right away.  Smiley

Here she is.  Her name is Lavender.

5  A little late to the Poppet party... in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by poppiesinjuly on: April 30, 2008 11:42:28 PM
But here is my first ever Poppet.  She is for my cousin's 5th birthday.

She's not perfect, but I love her and can't wait to make another one for me, especially now that I have a little practice.

Thanks so much to Ghilie and to everyone who has posted in the Poppet along thread.  All of your help and advice made it way easier than I expected.  Smiley

and here she is from the back.

I didn't take a ton if pics because it's late, but I'll take more of my next Poppet.  Smiley

Here is my hairstyle from yesterday.  I'm trying to do more things with my hair right now to prevent myself from cutting it all off.  It was nice to have it up and off my neck for the day.  I have some hot hot pink manic panic waiting for me, but I want to wait until I'm back from vacation to dye it.  It's not super edgy or anything, but I like it.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!
