Being my first post on this forum I suppose I should probably introduce myself.

My name is Kat, 23, been crocheting for as long as I can remember and taught myself how to make plushies about 10 years ago. I've come a long way in the past few years since I've started getting serious about what I make and putting some real LOVE into my creations.

For the most part I still work from patterns because, to be brutally honest, the thought of designing something myself scares the crapola out of me.

Decided to share with you lovely craftsters some stuff that I've made. Been a loooong time lurker, and thought it was about time I contributed.

The first thing I have for you is a Punk Kitteh. It's a variation of a pattern by Elisabeth Doherty and I have got some inspiration from a similar punk kitteh that she made a while ago.

Without further ado...



My ever helpful, wonderful boyfriend did the modelling, and I took the happy snaps.

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

Yes, I used safety eyes. Because the pattern is worked from the top of the head down you make the arms first and put the eye part into the arm so the long part is sticking out. Then you start the head, and when you're a few rows into the neck you put the long part of the eyes through the neck where you want them (keeping in mind that when you stuff it the neck will stretch out a bit so they don't look like they're shrugging) and put the washer on to keep it in place, though not too tight otherwise the arms wont move as freely as you may want them to.
