1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Mini Dobby amigurumi with pattern on: August 31, 2016 09:01:42 PM
Sorry to post from a bugmenot account, but new account creation is broken at the moment. I had to try to make an account to thank you for this pattern!

Although I've crocheted toys and simple objects for years, this is actually the first time I've successfully followed anybody else's pattern for something more complicated than a sphere. He took me about 2.5 hours. I deviated from the pattern in giving him a bit too much neck, since the way I sewed his eyes on kind of squished his head all funny -- in retrospect, I don't think I stuffed his head tightly enough.

As you requested, I made him a little sock! It was going to be orange and purple, but doing detail at this tiny a scale is beyond my ambition for the evening.

maybe someone will find this useful:

-I manipulated several (tiny!) La Gerbe jpgs I could find online in Photoshop
-all jpgs were vectorized using VectorMagic -> svgs
-resized (no loss of quality) and then converted to pngs
-finally I used Posterazor to cut pngs so that they can be glued together as a poster -> pdfs (I believe I used a 6x10 page setup, but you choose any other scale; start with an svg, resize it, get a png, then make a pdf out of it)

then just glue all printed PDFs together in the right order and you'll end up with a huge "poster"which you can then use to cut out individual leaves. looks great! (I'm not too much of an artist and I wouldn't be able to get it done without this)

have a look what's inside, you'll probably need just a file or two (i.e. an svg or maybe a png directly). pack includes 9 svgs, 9 pngs and 9 pdfs
