I recently visited with my niece who I hadn't seen in three years and the first thing she asked  me was "Auntie Laura, can you make me an Ickbarr Bigelsteine ami?"  I was like, uhm, who in the heck is Ickbarr Bigelsteine?  The answer to that question is here and my inspiration picture here

I present to you, Ickbarr Bigelsteine


And, posing outside:


I've only made a few ami's before, and they were off patterns. There isn't an Ickbarr tutorial, so I found this as a guide.  I didn't use all of the features,  it is a panda bear, after all,  but it was very similar in shape, and worked great for me.

I used Sugar n Cream cotton thread (my first time using cotton, actually) and a 5.5 crochet hook on everything except for the arms which I went down to the 5.0 hook so they would be a bit thinner.  He measures about 12" I'd say...I haven't actually measured him...

I would have liked for his stitches to be a bit closer together, but I think it stretched a bit as I was stuffing, and I may have over stuffed to get the shape I wanted.  All in all, I am very pleased and he is very creepy-cute...but really the story because he's more creepy than cute!

Thanks for looking!  And again, I don't know why my pictures are always sideways...grrr

Great job on the ami, but I agree with everyone else, the story is definitely creepy! Of course, that's the kind of thing that so many teens love. Always amazed me that the creepier something was, the more my middle schoolers loved reading it, talking about it, and watching it. Ick! One of the hardest things I had to deal with as a teacher, since I hate horror sstories.

I've never heard of this Ickbarr fellow prior to this, but I love him.  Just my cup of creepy tea with a lump of cute!
