31  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Little Groot amigurumi on: October 18, 2014 01:37:30 AM


While I've yet to see Guardians of the Galaxy, I've heard great things about it.
However, suereal has seen it and adores Groot. She and I did a personal swap and one of the items I made for her was a little potted Groot. I based him on a video clip which another friend linked me. I also tried following a pattern at some point but couldn't make sense of parts of it and the body was much too small for his head. So I improvised and made it up as I went along Smiley
He has no armature, not even in his arms, and is stuffed in such a way that he can be posed however she likes. His arms even hold poses pretty well Cheesy
Though he's not 100% accurate, he's still pretty cute and suereal likes him. And that's what counts Wink

Prompt:  October Battle Royale- Halloween
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Tattered curtain decoration
At work, I get volunteered to decorate above/around the counter because I'm the only one who's not afraid to climb on top of the counter to reach the ceiling. That being said, my manager bought some cheapy imitation cheesecloth (it's too loose to be the good stuff) and asked me to hang it above the counter so that it appeared as if we had curtains. Easy enough, right? Well, sure, if you can use tape. I was not allowed to use tape on the fabric because it could tear the cheesecloth-like stuff. So, being the industrious little Craftster that I am, I cut a length of black yarn and tied it off to a nail in the wall and across to the hook above the sunglasses display. Then I taped it to the ceiling in a couple of spots and proceeded to wrap/drape the gauzy fabric over it and played around until it looked like passable curtains. It took a little over an hour because this stuff just did NOT want to stay up!  Angry But I won in the end and it doesn't look half bad Smiley

Thanks y'all!  I'm not a graphic person, so if anyone wants to tweek and redraw I'm fine with that (hint hint FG Grin).  I will redo it once I get home on my drawing tablet...and Yup AMIR, I was thinking the white should be blood shot..and maybe blood drops dripping off the needles?  And I think each individual eye should have it's own colored iris....that way they can be personalized...

I'll see what I can do! Cheesy

Ta-da!


My scanner cut off small parts for some reason Tongue The blood drip on the bottom is to make it seem as if the eye has just been ripped out. Not sure if it makes sense realistically but it looks interesting. The ends of the threads on either side is supposed to look like hearts.
If anyone wants something changed, let me know and I'll see what I can do Grin

I asked my dad for his opinion on a name. His suggestion? "Nutty Needlers" or "Nerdy Needlers" Roll Eyes
