There was a cute little round ninja that someone posted here recently, which reminded me of http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/plush/8823/ these from ThinkGeek. I've always liked the look of the little square ninja dudes, but didn't want to pay 10 bucks for a 5" tall one, so I made my own in crochet.
So why is his name Beary Jackson? Because I haven't learned yet not to ask my husband to name things I make, heh. Anyways, I had some extra Jiffy yarn lying around after a knitting project, and I wanted to make it a hat, but it didn't want to be a hat, it wanted to be a bear. Specifically this bear:
So I've had this little dude made for a long time, several months have gone by and I keep meaning to post about him, I uploaded the pictures a while ago, but still slacked off about posting. Anyways, I finally got around to posting, so here he is! Though I guess it should really be here she is since it's overwhelmingly pink, but it just looks like a he to me.
I get a lot of inspiration from Amigurumi I see on the web, in this case it was from Amigurumi kingdom. He was made my carrying a strand of the fuzzy yarn with a strand of simply soft, makes the body more sturdy than the thin fuzzy yarn alone, plus it works up much faster, heh. I hope you guys enjoy looking at him as much as I enjoyed making him!
I've been really bad lately and haven't been posting anything I've been making. This is a bunny I made for a couple who recently had a baby in my Sunday school class. Actually I made two, a pink one first, and then after learning that their older daughter (3 I think) loves bunnies, I made one for her too (this one). I finished the pink one right before class, so I forgot to take pictures of it, looks basically the same though. The design was inspired by a post by another craftster, but i didn't feel like buying a Japanese pattern book, then waiting for it to arrive, so I just made my own. Sorry for the ridiculously long preamble, so without further ado, pics!
It's exam week at school, and in an attempt to keep from studying and doing finals I bought some crazy fuzzy yarn and decided to make some amigurumi. I'm really happy with the way he turned out. I was inspired by the works of Amigurumi Kingdom, so if he looks a little familiar, that's probably why. He's got a removable ribbon collar with a bell, and a tiny little tail (which was a pain to make). He's about six inches tall. In case anyone is curious he's made with Simply Soft and Bernat Frenzy. Anyways, on to the pics:
I made these legwarmers for the Autobahn (an electronic music festival here in Ohio) since I want to wear a skirt and the weather has been a bit chilly as of late. Some of the lattices are four wide instead of three due to a miscount in my beginning chain. I would've started over but then I wouldn't have them done in time for the concert, heh. I'm really proud of how they turned out, especially since the pattern is my own. I'm thinking of doing some more in different colors so I can wear them to work, will be sure to chain the right amount this time, hehe! Anyways, on with the pictures. The first one looks kinda brown, but the color is black like in the second pic.
It's really hard to take decent pictures of your own legs, lol.
Edit: They actually were (to my surprise!) quite warm, I'm sure it wouldn't be great to wear them when it's super windy and cold, but for the fall they work out great!
I recently taught myself to crochet (about a month ago) after discovering amigurumi, I just flip for cute things, heh. Anyways, my boyfriend and I are big video game fans, so I decided to make him a few things. First was the slime, I got him addicted to Dragon Quest VIII so I figured it was fitting, it's the second thing I've ever crocheted and I think it turned out pretty well for me just winging it anyways, here he is:
The next thing I decided to make for him was Kuro, which is his favorite cousin from Katamari Damacy. He's over a foot tall, and was a real learning experience for me, but so much fun to make! He's over a foot tall (standing) and I made him totally without a pattern, wish I would've written down exactly what I did I'm so very tempted to make myself a Miso now, but I'm currently making a black, red, and grey katamari for Kuro and an Ultros (from Final Fantasy) for one of my friends, hopefully I'll have up pictures of them soon! Thanks for looking, and hooray for my first post!
