I made this amigurumi doll for a friend who is a fan of Arrietty, from the Miyazaki’s movie : the Borrowers (Karigurashi no Arrietty).
I used the indications from Free Spirit Amigurumi Doll Pattern http://byhookbyhand.blogspot.com/2009/07/one-of-things-ive-really-wanted-to-do.html .
I used :
- cotton yarn (n°5) and a B crochet
- paper for her eyes
- a peak for skewer painted with sliver paint, and a yellow pinhead glued on the top for the sword
- white and green flet for her belt + a small piece of cord
- brown felt for her boots

Arms and legs are flexible. She’s about 20 cm high.

Thanks for watching  Smiley

I loved those books when I was young!  And how did I not know that Miyazaki was making a movie from them?  Double love!  And your ami would be cute even if she didn't have such an amazing pedigree, so to speak.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

I didn't know Miyazaki was/had made a version of the Borrowers either, I'm going go and look that up now! I love your ami! Smiley

She's lovely! You've given her a great expression, and her accessories are cool.

thank you everyone for your nice comments
here is a picture from the anime :

the movie was released in theaters in France in January 2011.
You can find some info here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret_World_of_Arrietty
I hope you will enjoy this movie, it's very poetic.
I haven't read the book, so I can't tell you if the movie is very faithful to the book.

Beautiful Arriety.  She is just how I imagined her when I read the Borrowers as a child.  You have done a lovely piece of work.
