1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mauritius Dodo on: September 11, 2007 12:51:38 AM
I made the Mauritius Dodo from CrochetMe! He was very easy to make, and took only a tiny amount of leftover yarn.

I made the dodo with 8ply/DK yarn and a 4mm hook (I know I should have gone tighter, but he looks okay!) He is my second ami ever.

This is my modified version of a Happy Hooker bag   Smiley

It's the "In Bloom" pattern, with some added rows. I stupidly didn't count how many I added before I felted it. About 10, I think. I then felted it (the yarn I used was JJs handpainted 8-ply) and blocked it on the inside plastic block of one of those "green bags" (do you have them overseas?).

Then I sewed this on!

I drew the doggie in my sketch book, and then traced it onto felt. I blanket-stitched it on. Sewing is not my strong point, as evidenced by the fact that I managed to sew the lining on inside out. A full unpick and more sewing later, and the lining looks like this:

It's a gift for someone who likes dogs. I hope she likes this!
