4  Final Fantasy amigurumis (pic heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by napolitana on: September 13, 2010 11:27:01 AM
My last thread (Sailor Neptune:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359252.0 ) gave me more courage to get out of the "crochet closet" where I had been lurking since I joined Crafster. So, here are more of my creations. I made these amis for friends of my brother:

Squall:



I made the sword with felt and put a piece of cardboard inside.

Black Mage



(this pic was taken by my brother's friend, because I didn't take a pic after I finished it)

Thanks for looking!

5  Sailor Neptune! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by napolitana on: September 12, 2010 08:16:48 AM


Yesterday I finished this doll. I spent half a day attaching her hair (one at a time... it was a load of work, but I loved the finished result). To make a wavy hair, after all the threads were attached to her head, I made braids, sprinkled some water over them, and then I used the iron on them. I undid the braids, and voila! Wavy hair!

Bows and eyes were made in a fabric similar to felt. All the rest is crochet.

Thanks for looking!
