1  Dirty Dancing Johnny & Baby in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yoguiana on: July 21, 2014 06:33:05 AM

Was watching a program about 80's movies when I had this idea to make the main characters of my favourite one. A guilty pleasure really as I can't say how many times I watched it.
I thought that as many things in life this likeness would pass too but I have to admit that I love the film the first time I watched it and I've still loved it.
So I hope I managed to capture Dirty Dancing's Johnny & Baby well. I'm quite happy about Baby's hair and dress and Johnny's hair was a bit of a trouble but I'm really pleased with the results.

Did I manage to capture "the time of your life"?

And don't forget: "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" Wink

2  Toffee the Teddy Bear in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yoguiana on: April 29, 2014 07:20:19 AM

Last February I've become an aunt for the 3rd time! Since then I start wondering what should I make to my new nephew. I thought maybe a cardigan but I must confess I'm not too much into crocheting clothing.
Then Trolli came to my mind! Trolli is my husband's childhood teddy bear and he keeps him to this day. So I decided a teddy bear would be perfect for Henry.

I hope Toffee will be loved and cherished for a long time!

By the way, I wrote a pattern for Toffee so if there's a loved one in need of a friend...

4  Crochet Magic Ring, the ring to rule them all ;) in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by yoguiana on: March 14, 2014 11:24:44 AM

Crochet Magic Ring, Im sure you were already introduced to it. If not, its time for you to know it!

When I started making amigurumis they all begun the same way: ch3, sl st to first ch to form a ring or ch2,  x sc  in the 2nd ch from hook. Does that sound familiar? This technique usually leaves quite a hole in the first round, looking not so tidy. So if youd like your amigurumis to look perfect beginning to end the magic ring is the solution for you. And once youve learned it, theres no going back.

So lets start with this tutorial!

- First, start by making a loop with your yarn (1)

- Then hold your loop with your thumb and ring finger. (2)

- Insert your hook through loop, yarn over and chain 1. (3)

- Next, insert your hook through the loop and sc. (4 &5)

- Repeat sc for 5 times. (6)

- Now hold your work with one hand and pull the tail of the ring with the other hand. (7)

- And were done! See what a perfect first round? No holes!

5  Bunny & Daffodil in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yoguiana on: February 28, 2014 12:36:33 PM
I don't know about you but I can't wait for Spring. Here in the UK we had so much rain that we are literally "soaked".

So while waiting for the new season I created this little bunny. First he wasn't going to hold anything but then I thought I can't wait for some daffodils as they're really a sign that Spring is coming, so he got himself one.

I did struggle a bit with the daffodil as with the tiny size, it was a bit difficult to get it to look right. But I thought I did manage it... what do you think?

Also I think I got a little inspired by the moogles from Final Fantasy XII. Can you see a resemblance?

6  My first Star Wars character! The Wampa! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yoguiana on: September 25, 2013 05:12:41 AM
I've finally managed to make my first Star Wars character, the Wampa! Remember him from Hoth? He gave Luke a hard time and ended up without an arm.
Well, I keep this one well fed so he doesn't get in trouble Wink

I had a really good time making the Wampa and I'm so pleased how he looks like!

Hope you like it too!

7  Star Wars Slave I - Boba Fett has a soft side! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yoguiana on: September 15, 2013 05:32:30 AM

I did want to make Boba Fett's Slave I for a long time now and finally is here!
My first attempt was not so very successful as after stitching all parts together I noticed that the cockpit was not right... So I remade it completely and I think I got it right this time. What do you think?
Maybe the bottom part could be thinner but overall I'm happy with the result.

Also I tried to make all the parts in one piece, meaning not much weaving in and stitching parts together in the end!

Boba Fett's soft side? Wink

8  Kill Bill's The Bride / Black Mamba in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yoguiana on: July 01, 2013 10:15:06 AM

And she is finally here! Kill Bills The Bride / Black Mamba!

Also got inspired to make this doll after my visit to the V&A Hollywood Costumes exhibition I saw last year. After The Wizard of Oz Dorothy and Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffanys, I thought I could add a more modern character to my collection of dolls.

The Bride / The Black Mamba also has a very simple costume but its so effective. Probably the combination of the bright yellow with the black stripes. Im pretty sure that if you saw the film you wont fail to recognise The Bride.

The development of the doll as a pattern was quite straight forward. I wanted to give her a fierce look, a bit angry as she should be. The hair needed to be more flowy this time so I tried this technique for attaching it for the first time. While it was quite time consuming, I think the result is very good. You just need to be careful about the volume.

For her costume, I went for the jumpsuit, isnt it cooler than the sweatpants? And I used pipe cleaner for the katana.

I love how the sneakers / trainers turned out!

I think the 3 dolls make quite a team! Could they be the next Charlies Angels?

So did I manage to capture The Brides soul in this crochet doll? Which other characters would you like to see on my Amigurumi Dolls collection?

Finally finished my second pattern inspired by the V&A's "Hollywood Costume" exhibition!
