Title: Sackgirl Coraline
Post by: causticmuse on May 06, 2009 04:35:46 PM
I took a break from detailed male Sackboys to make this Coraline Sackgirl for my friend Emily's birthday.

Her head and hands were crocheted from Red Heart Super Saver Buff, her jeans and hair were RHSS Windsor Blue, and her yellow coat and boots were Pigsbah Peaches & Creme in Yellow. Her hair is rooted directly to her scalp with two strands of blue yarn folded in half, drawn under a stitch in the head, and the loose ends pulled through the resulting loop. One of these days I will have to try the lace loom method, because this much hair takes a while to do!

I may actually change her shank button eyes to the creepy traditional ones with the holes punched in them before I mail her off to her new owner.

What do you all think?  :D

Oh. My. Gosh. She  is absolutely amazing! I have to ask, could you post your pattern, or a tutorial, or something on how you made her? My little sister is a die-hard Coraline fan - she brought her copy of the book WITH her when we went to see the movie! - and this would make the most perfect gift for her. Please?

Can I commission you for one of these?  I can't crochet to save my life.
