Loves and Snuggles!

« on: February 08, 2009 11:57:42 AM »

Just in time for Valentine's Day, a little bit of robot love! WALL-E and Eve are crocheted from wool and acrylic yarn and stuffed with lentils and fiber fill. I even snuck little magnets into their arms so they'll hold hands on their own Smiley

I'm not very good at embroidery yet, but just picked up an adorable book to help me improve.  Hopefully my next try will be a little tidier, especially on the WALL-E logo.











They are both my own concocted patterns, so if anyone feels inclined to try them, just let me know and I'll type up what I did.  Thanks for looking and happy Valentine's Day!

[EDIT] It sounds like a few of you want to give this a go, so I put off some homework (darn) and typed out patterns.  I'd request that everyone refrain from making them to sell, otherwise, have at it!

WALL-E Pattern

This pattern uses a size F hook and medium-weight yarn.  He only turns out about 5 inches tall, which means you need very little yarn to complete this project.  You'll need yarn in:
  • dark yellow
  • grey
  • black
  • white
Plus embroidery floss in:
  • black
  • red
  • white
And last but not least, a pair of black 6mm safety eyes (or something similar).


Body (in 6 pieces):

Top/bottom plates (yellow yarn, make 2):
Row 1: ch 11, turn
Rows 2-9: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn
Row 10: sc in each stitch across.  Finish off.

Back plate (yellow yarn, make 1):
Row 1: ch 11, turn
Rows 2-7: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn
Row 8: sc in each stitch across.  Finish off.

Side/front plates (start with yellow yarn, make 3):
Row 1: ch 11, turn
Rows 2-6: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn, switch colors to grey yarn
Row 7: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn
Row 8: sc in each stitch across.  Finish off.
Choose one of these pieces to be the front plate.  Embroider the WALL-E logo with black, red, and white embroidery floss.  You may want to look up a picture of the real WALL-E for this, because my embroidered version is quite rough.

Assemble body one seam at a time.  Align 2 contiguous plates (I started with the bottom and back plates) and single crochet through both layers to attach.  I learned this method from an amazing recycled shopping bag pattern, found here, which has many pictures if you need more detailed directions on this.  Connect each plate one at a time, saving the top plate for last.  You may wish to change colors midway through some of the side seams to preserve the grey stripe (but note that the grey stripe only runs across the side and front plates, not the back).  Connect two sides of the top plate and stuff.  I used lentils in the bottom and polyfil on top.  Finish the final two seams and secure the vast multitude of ends Smiley

Feet (in 3 parts for each foot):

Wheels (grey yarn, make 2 for each foot):
Row 1: Magic ring- 6 sc, place marker.
Rows 2-5: sc in each sc around, move marker
Row 6: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around, move marker
Row 7: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around.  Finish off.

Treads (black yarn, make 1 for each foot):
Row 1: ch 5, turn
Rows 2-20: sc in each stitch, ch 1, turn (repeat until long enough to wrap around 2 wheels)
Row 21-ish: sc in each stitch.  Finish off.

Assemble feet by sewing 2 wheels onto each tread, wrapping the tread around to meet itself, and sewing once more to secure.  Attach to bottom of body (remember that the grey body stripe should come out on top!) using ends from treads.

Neck (yellow yarn):

Row 1: Magic ring using 6 slip stitches
Row 2-end: Slip stitch around until piece reaches desired length (about 1 inch long).  Finish off.
Attach to center of top plate on body and secure ends.

Eyes (in 3 parts for each eye):

Eye tubes (grey yarn, make 1 for each eye):
Row 1: ch 7, turn
Rows 2-11: sc in each stitch, ch 1, turn
Row 12: sc in each stitch.  Finish off.
Put short ends of piece together to form a tube.  Connect edges together using single crochet method described for body seams.

Ends of eye tubes (grey yarn, make 2 for each eye):
Row 1: Magic ring- 6 sc.  Finish off.
Push safety eyes through two of these pieces to make the front of each eye tube.  Sew each circular piece onto the eye tubes, stuffing lightly to preserve the shape.  Attach each eye to neck, about halfway down length of the eye tube.

Arms (yellow yarn, make 2):

Row 1: ch 9, turn
Rows 2-6: sc in each stitch, ch 1, turn
Row 7: sc in each stitch.  Finish off.
Fold over lengthwise and sew up edge with ends.  If desired, tuck magnet into tip of arm and sew into place.  The magnetic face should point out toward where the hands will be attached (otherwise, hell hold wrists with Eve instead of holding hands!).  Sew diagonal stripes along outside edge of each arm using black and white yarn or embroidery floss.

Hands (in 2 parts for each hand):

Finger piece (grey yarn, make 1 for each hand):
Row 1: ch 5, turn
Rows 2-3: sc in each stitch, ch 1, turn
Row 4: sc in each stitch.  Finish off.

Thumb piece (grey yarn, make 1 for each hand):
Row 1: ch 4, turn
Row 2: sc in each stitch, ch 1, turn
Row 3: sc in each stitch.  Finish off.

Attach the finger piece to the outer side of each arm, and the thumb piece to the inner side.  Use ends from arms to attach to body.

All done!  Rock on!

Eve Pattern

This pattern also uses a size F hook and medium-weight yarn (I used inexpensive shiny stuff to make her look very clean next to WALL-E).  She turns out about 5 inches tall, which means you need very little yarn to complete this project.  You'll need yarn in:
  • white
  • black
Plus embroidery floss in electric blue.

Body (white yarn):

Row 1: Magic ring- 6 sc, place marker
Row 2: sc inc in each stitch around, move marker
Row 3: *sc inc in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around, move marker
Row 4: *sc inc in 1st stitch, sc in next 2 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 5: sc around, move marker
Row 6: *sc inc in 1st stitch, sc in next 3 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 7-12: sc around, move marker
Row 13: *sc dec in back loop of 1st stitch, sc in back loops of next 3 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 14: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in next 2 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 15: sc around, move marker
Stuff firmly (I used lentils in the bottom for weight, and polyfil in the top)
Row 16: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around, move marker
Row 17: sc around
Row 18-end: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around until hole is closed.  Finish off and secure ends.

Head (white yarn):

Row 1: Magic circle- 6 sc, place marker
Row 2: sc inc in each stitch around, move marker
Row 3: *sc inc in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around, move marker
Row 4: *sc inc in 1st stitch, sc in next 2 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 5: *sc inc in 1st stitch, sc in next 3 stitches* repeat around, move marker
At this point, your work should be a roughly flat circle slightly smaller than the top of the body.
Row 6: sc around in back loops, move marker
Row 7: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in next 3 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 8: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in next 2 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 9: sc around, move marker
Row 10: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in next 2 stitches* repeat around, move marker
Row 11: sc around, move marker
Row 12: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch*repeat around, move marker
Row 13: sc around
Row 14-end: *sc dec in 1st stitch, sc in 2nd stitch* repeat around until hole is closed.  Finish off.  Use ends to sew head to body.

Faceplate (black yarn):

Row 1: ch 11, turn
Row 2: sc in next 9 stitches, ch 1, turn
Row 3: sc in next 9 stitches, turn
Row 4: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 8 stitches, turn
Row 5: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 7 stitches, turn
Row 6: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 6 stitches.  Finish off.
Using electric blue embroidery floss, make 2 eyes.  I started by making an outline with a couch stitch, then filling in with satin stitch.
Attach faceplate to head using ends from faceplate.

Arms (white yarn, make 2):

Row 1: ch 11, turn
Row 2: sc in next 9 stitches, ch 1, turn
Row 3: sc in next 9 stitches, ch 1, turn
Row 4: sc in next 9 stitches, ch 1, turn
Row 5: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 8 stitches, turn
Row 6: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 7 stitches, turn
Row 7: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 6 stitches, turn
Row 8: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 5 stitches, turn
Row 9: slip stitch in 1st stitch, sc in next 3 stitches, slip stitch.  Finish off.
Fold over lengthwise and sew up edge with ends.  If desired, tuck magnet into tip of arm and sew into place.  Use ends to attach to body.

Double done!  Double rock on!

My son has just seen these and wants some, as he's WallE mad. Could you please type up what you did, as I'm not confident enough at crochet to make it up myself.

They're fab.
