1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Elmer the Elephant of Surprise on: February 08, 2010 12:02:05 PM
I just finished making this little blue elephant for my friend from work - she is going through a bit of a tough time at the moment but there isn't much I can do to really help, so I thought I would try to make her something cheering instead... hence Elmer!

I spent most of the weekend and nearly watched entire season of 24 while I made Elmer! Smiley The pattern is from etsy.

Meet Elmer!


(He has a blue parcel tag around his neck - like Paddington Bear - saying 'Please look after this Elephant')

And one more - so you can see his pretty tail!


Hopefully he will make a cheering surprise!  Grin
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fluffy Amigurumi Elephant on: September 01, 2009 08:24:54 AM
Hi!

I just finished pattern testing for Angry Angel (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319248.0) and I thought I would share my finished elephant. She put together a simply gorgeous pattern for Flora the elephant - she reminded me so much of the Humphrey's Corner elephants I just had to volunteer!

I used slightly fluffy wool for her body - it was all I had in the right shade and luckily it worked out okay. I also added a centre to the flower because I found these tiny pompoms which matched her dress and had to use one! Cheesy

Anyhow - here is my attempt - I haven't named her yet:



Thank you to Angry Angel for letting me test out - I really enjoyed it! Smiley
I'd love to know what people think! Smiley
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fleur the amigurumi bunny! on: August 15, 2009 09:23:26 AM

I pattern tested for the lovely EssHaych (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=316656.0)
She put together a pattern for a lovely floppy-eared bunny.
Here is how my version came out - I used a 2mm crochet hook and she is about 12cm high Smiley
My husband named her Fleur.

And here is Fleur with a fuchsia in the garden - this shows her true colour pink better!

Thank you to EssHaych for letting me test out again - it was fun! Grin
Love to know what people think! Smiley
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Eugene Krabs...at last! on: August 09, 2009 02:26:33 AM
I offered to pattern test for mama24boyz - she has done patterns for the whole spongebob crew - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314371.0

Her pattern is fantastic - I am just slow and easily confused!  Huh

It took me nearly a week longer than it was supposed to... but he is done now!  Grin

Here he is hanging out by our pond (as is Titan our cat in the background 'helping')...

And for reference here is what Mr. Krabs is supposed to look like!


Thank you mama24boyz for letting me test - and sorry for being so slow! Sad
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Dora the Amigurumi Bear - has a picnic with friends on: July 05, 2009 08:18:10 AM

Hello!

I pattern tested for EssHaych (see her original thread over here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310887.0).
She made the gorgeous Sam - and so I figured I should make a girl-bear, allow me to introduce Dora. I used a 3mm crochet hook and my bear came out about 10cm tall.

Here she is having a cake in the garden. (I just made the cake out of a Cheerio, some spare icing and a chocolate drop... I think this has caused my OH to question my sanity!)


And here she is having finished up a giant jar of honey.


Dora has quickly made friends and invited Mr. Platypus and Mrs. Stegosaurus to join her in eating more cake outside in the sunshine.

(The pattern for Mr. Platypus is courtesy of beavisfreak (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=309893.0) and I made up Mrs. Stegosaurus whilst watching Jurassic Park! Smiley)

Would love to know what you think! Smiley


6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Boris and Winton the Amigurumi Jellyfish on: June 16, 2009 10:36:14 AM
I know there have been lots of jellyfish about on here recently... they were my inspiration to create Boris and Winton.
(My OH just named them, the little yellow one is Boris after Boris Johnson the mayor of London and the bigger orange one is Winton after Dale Winton a perma tanned UK TV host).

I used EssHaych's pattern and loved making the spiral-tentacles... Winton was made using a 2mm hook and Boris was made using a tiny steel crochet hook and slightly finer yarn (the hook I think is supposed to be for doily-type crochet but also seems to work well for scaling down amigurumis!)

Anyhow - onto the pics - this is Boris and Winton together...

And Winton on his own...

And Boris on his own...


Love to know what you guys think! Smiley
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dylan the Fleece Dragon! on: June 09, 2009 12:24:08 PM
Hello! This is my second ever time sharing something I've made  Grin First time posting in Toys, Dolls and Playthings Smiley

I got the pattern from etsy, but I'm not sure I did everything like I should've, anyhow - meet Dylan

Here he is guarding newly claimed territory in his garden.


He is made from yellow and green fleece with felt 'spikes'.



I'd love to know what you think! Smiley
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Turtles - Pattern Testing with Photoshoot on: June 06, 2009 09:30:19 AM
Hello - this is my first post of something I actually made and also my first attempt at posting pictures... here goes!  Shocked

Esshaych was looking out for pattern testers for her Tilly the Turtle amigurumi pattern and it was just too cute for me not to volunteer (her original thread is over here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307669.0)

So because it has been a rainy, dreary weekend so far I settled down to some serious testing... and her pattern is fantastic Grin

First let me introduce Shelly...


And then, because she looked kinda lonely... here is Sheldon to keep her company...

Hanging out in a beautiful purple alium bloom - the rainy UK weather is good for something shame it's too wet to enjoy the garden properly!  Cheesy

And here they are together:



Hope you like them!

(If you want to see more pictures I have tried to upload the rest of the photoshoot to flickr, not sure if it worked as I am new to this photo sharing business... but I think they can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/37495820@N05/sets/72157619248569419/)
