Hi! I just finished my very first pattern  Grin and am in need of 2-3 people to test it out!

This pattern is an amigurumi pattern.

I wrote down notes as I crocheted and want to double check that everything is correct and understandable before I try to publish it somewhere.

If you are interested PM me.

Please only reply if you really have time to test and are willing to send me feedback and a pic of your finished project ASAP.

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Could you please add more details? Maybe what the project is, and the size, or how much yarn it would take? Thanks!

yay! well I had a crochet marathon not long after I received the pattern  Cheesy and I finished this morning.

she didnt come out exactly like the pic on the pattern, that could be just the placement of the face, but I think its the lower body isnt quite long/wide enough and the upper body seems a bit long, but that may just be me  Cheesy shes still awesome though, and when the other half stops frowing at me (crochet marathon means hes my slave  Cheesy Tongue ) Im planing on making one christmas themed

Wow I'm amazed! You did that fast! It looks great!
After you stuff her it is helpful to kind of roll the body between your hands back and forth... helps shape the body... Thanks for helping me test the pattern! Once again great job!!!

It was an incredibly easy pattern, the continous stitches with no increase/decrease did drive me insane for a bit but its well worth it, and goes down with kids a treat - my 11year old cousin - Leteisha - took one look and promptly claimed it (it was only fair to let her keep Mrs Shiitaki after I gave her brother a felt goldfish  Roll Eyes )
and honestly, that wasnt fast  Cheesy if I had sat down and done it without wandering around and playing on craftster (and sleeping) I would have had it done maybe 5 or 6 hours after I got the pattern (does that make me a slow crocheter? or insane?) 
awwww crud, forgot to measure her, but shes larger than my coffee cup and thats a bit of A4 (sideways) behind her, so shes not a teeny shroom
