1  Sheldon Doll *With Pattern* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooksnpaper on: November 22, 2012 09:37:37 AM
Hello,

I adore the show TBBT! Since my last Sheldon Doll I have re-created a few more and have had some people asking for a pattern....so I decided to make a bunch of them and write up the pattern this time. Here is it, I hope you like it Smiley




Supplies:
3.5 hook
7.5 black safety eyes
And I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. You will need a skin/buff color, red, brown, black and a bit of white, yellow
and blue. I used Red Heart Luster Sheen Yarn for the hair.
Filling, scissors and a needle. Stuff your doll as you are working.

Abbreviations:
Ch~Chain
Sc~Single crochet
Dc~Double crochet
Invedec~Invisible decrease
Sk st~Skip stitch
Fo~Fasten Off
X~Multiply, means do this sequence this many times. If it follows brackets ( ) that means do the sequence inside the pattern the indicated times.

Body (Worked as one piece, you will start at the top of his head)
• With skin color 6sc in magic ring.
• (2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc, sc, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc x 3, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc x 4, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 36.
• (Sc x 5, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 100.
• (Sc x 6,2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 480.
• (Sc, sc, invdec) x 20.
• Invdec x 19.

Now you should be left with 9 sc, including the sc that is on your hook. You are going to now start his neck.

• Sc x 30.
• (Sc, 2sc in next st) x 12.

Now fold the piece in half, laying it on a flat service. Make sure the stitch you have on our hook is in the middle of your piece, this is the back of your doll. Then insert your safety eyes. I inserted my eyes about 14 rows down from the top of his head. Stuff your dolls head firmly. From this point on stuff your doll as you are working. And please over stuff your neck to avoid wobbly neck syndrome.
.
• Switch to red. Sc x 21.
• (Sc, 2sc in next st) x 9.
• Sc x 64.
• (Sc, sc, 2sc in next st) x 10.
• Sc x 365.
You should now be in the middle of the back of your doll.
• Sc x 40 in front loops.
• Sc x 40.
• Fo, weave in ends.

Now you are going to start working on his pants. So roll up the shirt to the round where you worked around in the front loops only....insert your hook in the middle of the back of your doll.

• Switch to brown.Sc x 40.
• Sc x 7, invdec, sc x 20, invdec.
• Sc x 26, invdec, sc x 16, invdec.
• Sc 147.

Now you will be starting his first leg. You should be in the middle of your dolls back.

• Skip 18 stitches, sc x 367.
• Sc x 16 in front loops.
• Sc x 32, fo, weave in ends.

Now you will be starting the second leg. With the back of your doll facing you insert your hook into the first sc beside your first leg. Please note there will be a small space in between both legs. Once your doll is stuffed you will use some of the brown yarn to sew this area closed.

• Sc x 17 , the last sc will attach the leg together as one circle.
• Sc x 360.
• Sc x 16 in front loops.
• Sc x 32, fo, weave in ends.

Arm (Make 2)
• With skin color 6 sc in magic ring.
• (2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 15.
• Bobble Stitch.
• Sc x 4, invdec, sc x 5, invdec.
• Sc x 3, invdec, sc x 3, invdec, sc x 27, invdec, sc x 29
• Switch to blue, sc x 22.
• Switch to red, sc x 8.
• Switch to white, sc x 15.
• Switch to red, sc x 22, fo, leave a long tail. You will use this tail to sew the arm to your doll.

Lightening Patch
• With white 6sc in magic ring.
• (2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 10, fo, leave a long tail. You will use this tail to sew your lightening patch to your doll.

Feet
With the back of your doll facing you, roll up the pant leg to the round where you crochet in the front loops only in the pants. You should be able to clearly see this round. In the middle of the back of your dolls leg with the color black insert hook pull up stitch and sc x 12 around to make a complete circle.

• With black Sc x 42.
• Turn, ch1, sc x 5.
• (Turn, ch 1, sc x 5) x 5.
• Sc x 60 around the entire piece.
• Fo, weave in ends. Repeat process for second leg.

Sole Of Foot
• With black Ch6.
• Turn, sc x 5.
• (Turn, ch2, sc x 5) x 6.
• Fo, leave a really long tail. You will use this tail to sew the sole onto the foot of your doll.

Hair/Wig cap
You will work the wig the same as you did for the first few round of your head.
• With the same brown used for the pants you will 6sc in ring.
• (2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc x2, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc x 3, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• (Sc x 4, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 36.
• (Sc x 5, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 100.
• (Sc x 6, 2sc in next st) x 6.
• Sc x 100, dc x 11, sc.
• Fo, leave a really long tail. You will use this tail to sew your wig cap to your doll.

Ears (Make 2)
• With skin color 7sc in magic ring.
• Fo, leave a long tail.
• Eyeball it where you would like your ears to go. Then sew them to your doll.

Assembly
Now you will stuff the feet firmly. And sew one sole onto the bottom of each foot. Weave in ends.
Sew the wig cap onto your dolls head, with the dc area at the nape of the neck. Now you will take a needle and cut long strips of the Luster Sheen yarn by Red Heart. There is no exact length required. You will thread your needle. I always use a really long heavy duty needle when making hair. You will insert your needle anywhere on your dolls head and then just embroider long strips all over your dolls head where you want hair to be. I usually determine where I want the part to be and the bangs first. And as you go you will be covering up the wig.

Keep going cutting long strips and sewing on strands of hair until you achieve the desired look. And the wig cap ensures the scalp is brown in case any of your hairs move or if you don’t want to go really heavy on the hair. Embroider a lightning bolt onto your white circle and then sew the circle onto your doll. And sew the patch to your doll. Bazinga!!! Now enjoy your own mini Sheldon

2  Pauly D & Snow White! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooksnpaper on: June 30, 2012 11:31:58 PM
Weird combination to be together DJ Pauly D and Snow White.....but I wanted to share a few of my new items I made for my Sister and my Niece! My Sister LOVES Jersey Shore....and Pauly D is her favourite off the show. So I decided to make her a Pauly D doll.....she loved how he turned out. I really enjoyed making this one Smiley

I had to make him his little mixing board (lol I think that is what it is called?).



I also made my little Niece a SnowWhite doll...she was so happy when I gave it to her Smiley




Thanks for looking Smiley

If you know me you know that I love Ellen! She seems like such an amazing person, really kind and just fun to be around! I have decided to make a "crochet bucket list" a list of celeb dolls that I want to create and of course Ellen was one of the first few. I am sooooo happy with the way she turned out, here she is! I hope you enjoy her as much as I do! And I had to make her wearing a vest and tie....well,because when I think of Ellen I always picture her wearing a vest and tie!

Now for the icing. Take the colour of icing you would like to use, I prefer to use light pinks and blues.

Now take any colour yarn you like and add sprinkles to the icing only. Or even beads would be cute as well. Now take the

icing and sew it on to your main cookie piece. Weave in any ends.

 

Oreo Cookie


With dark brown yarn make two cookies.

Rd1-3: Work same as Chocolate Chip Cookie.

With white yarn make one cookie.

Rd1-3: Work same as Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Tea Bag

Rd1: ch 5 (5)

Rd2: sc in second ch from hook, sc across in the remaining ch’s. (4)

Rd3-8: ch1, turn, scin the 4 remaining ch’s across. (4)

Now you fold the tea bag in half and use black or grey yarn and embroider the word “tea” on one side. Now keep the piece folded and either sc around the entire piece closed. Or fo, and sew around the entire piece. Make sure the neat and proper side that you embroidered is on the outside. Now cut a string of white yarn and loop it thru a st in the top and tie a knot. And trim the end.

 

Spoon

Rd2: 2sc in each st around. (12)

I LOVE TBBT....and Sheldon is my absolutely favorite character! I really enjoy watching the show with my Daughter, we really enjoy laughing at Sheldon and his witty comments. So I have decided to create the cast for us....and of course Sheldon is the first on my list. He was pretty easy to create I completed him in a few nights.

I think next will be Penny. I hope you like him, thanks for looking Smiley

I didn't save the original photos without the mark. I hope it is okay and I am not breaking a rule by sharing them, I am jsut so happy with the way he turned out Smiley

I am sooooooo excited! I finished my first full size character based doll!  My Daughter LOVES Harry Potter so I thought why not start with making the main character...Harry!

I really enjoyed making this ami, it was a nice challenge to try and get him just right. And he only took a few days to create. I could really see myself getting addicted to making character based dolls. My goal now is to make the rest of the Potter cast Smiley

I hope you like him Smiley

8  My Newest Gal! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooksnpaper on: May 16, 2011 04:28:09 PM
Hello everyone, this is one of my newest ami's I just finished up a few days ago! I am really happy with her. And I am sooooo excited I found the perfect yarn for hair at walmart!!!!! It is redheart and I will look at the exact name once I go back but it comes in a smaller ball and it feels like it is between a yarn and embroidery floss! And they don't keep it by the other yarns....in my wal*mart it is over by the needles and hooks. It is perfect for doing hair! I am going to have to go back soon and check out what other colours they have! I usually find doing hair difficult....I don't know it just never seems right when I do hair? But I am sooooo happy with how she turned out....this new yarn is amazing!!!  




Oooops and before I forget I created a few more dolls like my Thea Doll. It is such a fast and easy pattern! I can finish one in about two nights of watching a movie with dear hubby and Sasha. Yes I am always crocheting while I watch TV....lol I can't help it! So I thought I would share the pattern just incase anyone else would like to make one.

She is an easy pattern that works up really quickly. And I just used yarn in my stash... some odd left over balls of yarn. I hope it is okay to share a free pattern.....here is the linkhttp://amidorablecrochet.blogspot.com/2011/05/thea-pattern.html Thanks for looking Smiley

9  I Would Like To Introduce Gabby! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooksnpaper on: May 09, 2011 10:27:43 AM
I am soooo happy with my latest ami design...she took me a couple of days to make. I am sooooo excited with how she turned out, and my hands are itching to try and create more just like her! She found a new home in my craft room on a shelf by my yarn!heehee and my Daughter thinks I should name every doll I make....so she named this one "Gabby".

I have to say I really love free hand crocheting...designing my own little pretties. I find it really challenging. I also finally found pellets at my local yarn store. I can't wait to use them....just wondering if anyone else out there uses pellets...and if so how much do you use. Also does anyone know do you have to line the body first? Or maybe I have to use a really small hook, I just don't want them to fall out lol....okay here she is...thanks for looking Smiley

This little gal took me a couple days to create. I really am happy with the way she turned out and I like how she has a rag doll type feel to her. I like how she can sit quite nice...and was thinking of looking for pellets for my next one to add some weight.Does anyone else do this?

I am currently making another one and am working on writing up the pattern incase anyone wants to make one Smiley
