Eye shadow works great on cheeks too!  Or to add a little color to other projects.  I did the worm from Labrynth and used shadow for the subtle tones on his body and his cheeks. 

I have also used it to help with blending.  For example you are using two different color of yarns and want more blended look around the two rows of color change - from blue to white. A little shadow on the first row of white can help with the look!

Hopefully you found something that worked.  I am assuming that you needed the present a while ago, but thought I would reply in case anyone else has the same thought. 

The things I have that makes amigurumi much easier is this list:

Craft case (to store eyes etc. in)
Safety eyes (all sizes and different colors)
Steel crochet hooks (best for the smaller amigurumi)
Bag to store yarn in - I have a couple different ones so I can put the skeins of yarn I need for my project I am working on.
I also use milk crates to store my yarn.  They stack nicely against a wall with the opening facing out for easy access.
Stitch savers - the kind that lock.  Nothing like having a saver that will come out while you are in the middle of a round.

I have been trying to find great Doctor Who patterns forever.  Yours are so great!  Was hoping you had the patterns available, but they are still perfect!

I have done all the Star Wars Characters with the patterns by Lucy Ravenscar. I also modified a few to make characters she didn't have (Jango, Mace Windu, Lando, Darth Maul) .  I think it was well worth the money for her patters.  It didn't cost much.  Grin

The photo below also shows characters done from these patterns:
Queen Amidala - Red Invasion Dress by Nancy J (Available for free on Raverly)
Jabba the Hut by Joy A Goerlich available on Esty.

I too am looking for this type of pattern and found this one:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/LLsCreations83

She has done just about all of them!  The same basic pattern is used for all the heros.  Once I get the Star Wars done, this one is next. Although I would like to find another way to do some of the designs other than felt.

I figured it out!!!   Grin 

First, with my first attempt, I was working on the inside of the design instead of the outside. 

Second, I found a place (don't remember) that helped.  At the end of my row, I chain one and then jump to the top of the next row.  this is working beautifully!  I am excited now and think this will work.

Thanks for the help.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Help! Working in the round without joining?? Amigurumi newbie on: May 06, 2012 05:50:09 PM
I am new to the Amigurumi scene. I just bought the Star Wars patterns from lucyravenscar and I am going crazy.  Did not realize a few things I didn't know would stand in my way.

Trying to figure out how to "Work in the Round without joining" Huh The pattern states:

Is made in rounds from the top of the head down. Do not join rounds unless told to. Work through both loops of stitches.

The problem:  mine come out with the spiral/crooked look.  So far, people suggest using a slip stitch to join to prevent the spiral look, however the patters says not to join. It doesn't give instructions for turning, Any help??  Her's turn out so strait in rows and nice.

The photo attached of course is not the right colors, but gives you an idea of what my work is doing. Since I am new, it only allows me to post the link to the photo.
