I AM FINALLY FINISHED!
I now present Strawbeary from Amigurumi: Super Happy Crochet Cute by Elisabeth Doherty.

overall, the pattern was pretty straightforward, the feet aside. I do NOT recommend crocheting with fun fur on a g hook, EVER!



More pics on the blog, they are sort of large.

She turned out really cute.  I like the buttons on her skirt.

She's very cute!
I love the little skirt and the way her legs kink in at the knees, that's a really cute touch.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Aww- she is very cute! I love the book- I've done Benny the Monkey (as a girl) and Punk Bunny- and you are SO right- the soles of the feet are a PITA! I think after doing four of them, I finally have it down- but, that doesn't count all the re-dos I had to do. At one point, I contemplated just using felt and calling it a day- LOL!

Good job!

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Your Strawbeary turned out really well.  I have to agree with you 100% regarding crocheting with the fur.  I just finished the head and torso portion of my doll and I have no idea how she was able to make her wigs so nice. I just started stabbing the hook in anywhere it would fit.

Now what was it about the feet that I should worry about?

 ;DI bought that book too, but have yet to be brave enough to try it. I think the cuteness does prove to be too much not to try. *smiles*

did you use safety eyes for the joints?  If so how did you manage to get the backs on them.
