1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Megaman on: February 25, 2014 05:15:00 PM
For Valentine's day, I decided to make my bf a Megaman doll since he used to love playing the game as a kid. I've put some wires in the fingers of his right hand so he can open and close his hand.

Very, very adorable!


Aww thank you! Cheesy

Awww. So wonderfully created. I rocked you and begged for your reward.
What a wonderful project! I know your friend will love it!

Great colors, neat and tight/tidy stitching. Love the scarf feature, love the nose! The pinkie ears are just darling. A bit large, but that adds to the comic strip effect, and works grand, there! Adorable face. Cute feet. I really couldn't find anything I didn't like on this project.

What a wonderful friend your friend has! I am sure she will treasure it! GREAT JOB!!!!!

Thank you for the kind words! She was very happy with her present. I've been trying to make a Piglet item for her every year.

I made a Winter Piglet for my friend for her birthday since Piglet is her favorite character.

That's so cute! If it had been my dog he'd squirm out of it so fast.

My bf's son loves the game Scribblenauts. I decided for my latest project to make him Maxwell from the game. He's about 15" tall.

Most of all..... HAVE FUN !!!!

Sew things you want and like.  There are many patterns on the net that are non-pattern patterns.  By that I mean basic instructions that are simple to follow.   You can also find a lot of video's on youtube as well.   You can also find a LOT of info on pinterest as well.  I have several sewing folders for different types/projects just to keep them more organized.

Thank you for the advice! That bag is really cute. I would totally make one for make up bag or something. I was hoping to learn to do little projects first and then when i'm a lot more advanced, making some clothes for myself. Nothing crazy complicated of course.

You can usually find the manual online, often for free.  Search the brand and model number of your machine, with the word "manual"  Invest in a little can or bottle of sewing machine oil, and learn to clean and oil the machine.  It will reduce problems and make the machine last longer.

You'll probably only need to use a couple of knobs right off the bat; stitch length (generally, longer for thicker fabrics, shorter for thin ones), maybe the zig zag width, and possibly the tension.


Thank you. That's good to know. My mom had 3 different machines. I'll try to see which one looks the least complicated and search for the manual on that. There's a few clothes seams that have just come undone that I want to sew back together too. Lol

Thank you so much for the advice! My mom used to sew but I never picked it up. I just became interested in it recently when I started to learn to crochet and wanted to do some bag linings. I do have a sewing machine(my mom's old one) but I don't have a manual that goes with it so I was a little put off by all the buttons and knobs. I probably will stop by my local thrift store for some fabrics! Thank you again!
