1  Captain America in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Old Lace on: July 30, 2011 12:22:44 PM
So my friend's birthday was the other day and his favorite super hero is Captain America. Being a crafty gal, naturally I decided to crochet him a Captain America. I've only used patterns before when it came to making amigurumi dolls so this was a bit of a challenge. To make him I made changes to an already existing pattern in Ana Paula Rimoli's Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute crochet. And being a non-comic-book person I used my friend and a Marvel Versus Capcom art book to get the look right.





Sorry for the blurs I can hardly ever hold the camera still.

He is about 9 inches tall. His shield can be removed and be worn on his back or arm. To stiffen the shield and make the wings on his head I crocheted around wire and pipe cleaners. Overall I'm pleased with how he turned out and couldn't wait to give him away. My friend loves him and I've already gotten offers to make more.

Comments, questions and criticisms are welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Happy crafting.  Smiley

2  Cute Crochet Camera Bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by Old Lace on: June 19, 2010 08:53:03 AM
So I got a camera a few months ago but didn't have a case for it, so I set out to make one of my own since camera bags can be costly.
I didn't follow any pattern, I just set out with a general idea of the shape needed and started crocheting.The body is done in single crochet worked in a spiral and the strap is afghan stitched. The fabric is from my stash and I used "fun foam" (found in the kid's craft section) for the padding and support.
The original plan was to stitch some flowers on it but as the project progressed, the more I wanted to see bicycles on it.










It comfortably holds the camera and two rolls of film.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley
