Woohoo! Thank you fantasticmio, and everyone who voted for my entry! Of course, if you know Reepicheep you'll know he doesn't need a bigger head, but he's grateful too Wink

I'd suggest expanding MMORPG to just 'video games' in general - a broader theme would hopefully encourage more people to participate!

I'm so disappointed that there were only 4 entries in this challenge - I thought this was an awesome theme and there would be loads of fantastic (literally) projects!

Was everyone else just too busy to enter, or did the theme not appeal?

Thank you so much, everyone! It took so much time - especially trying to figure out the basketweave pattern for the coracle - but I think it was worth it and I'm glad you do too!

If anyone has any questions about techniques etc I'd be happy to try to answer them Smiley

Very nice! I bet the chenille was a pain to work with, but totally worth it - he looks super-snuggly!

When I thought of Fantasy, Narnia immediately came to my mind! I thought Aslan was too obvious a choice, but I wanted to make a very recognisable character, so who better than the fearless and valiant mouse Reepicheep? The scene from the end of The Voyage of The Dawn Treader has always stuck with me, and the prophetic verse:

Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter East.

So, without further ado, I present Sir Reepicheep!



Reepicheep paddles in his coracle, through a sea of lilies, to the end of the world








Reepicheep and accessories took 11 types and colours of yarn and 4 sizes of crochet hook. Its very important to me to make as much as possible from crochet, so everything you can see is crocheted. I used fiberfill stuffing, 3 different types of wire (pipe cleaners, floral wire and beading wire) to provide internal structure, and a piece of plastic canvas inside the paddle blade to keep it flat. And every single item came from my stash, so the entire project cost me nothing!

(I'm running out of time for the challenge entry so I'll post this now, but I've posted lots more details on my crocheted Reepicheep the mouse blog post.)

Cute! I love the green hair on the top left one, and is that Alice I see in the middle? Smiley
