1  Seriously Cute Crochet BJD Hats *image attack* in Crochet: Completed Projects by MissFlynn on: September 02, 2010 07:56:22 PM
I've been crochetting random projects on and off for about 2 years now. Alot of the obsessively adorable fluffy stuff I LOVE to crochet, I just can't wear (for some reason wearing cute animal eared hats isnt seen as professional these days D: ). Since I'm still a few years away from having little ones to torture with obnoxiously cute outfits, when I got my first BJDs the big lightbulb over my head lit up. Cheesy

For a few weeks I worked on a base pattern and a bunch of different ears and now I have plenty of adorable hats and tiny little mittens. They've become somewhat of a "hit" around here and now my neice is screaming for a hat and little coat for her webkinz hamster, haha.

It all started with a Dino...

But I couldn't leave out mighty Dragons!

Or adorable bears and all their cousins.

And kitties are always cute...

Then my boyfriend suggested moogles, being the gamer that he is.

I highly recommend to anyone with BJDs to take up crochet because it's really fun to work in this size! I hope you all enjoyed my work, despite the image spam. They really make me smile, so I hope they brightened your day a bit. <3

2  Rupert the Jellyfish (Slightly Image Plump- 5) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by MissFlynn on: May 28, 2009 11:25:33 AM
Well, hello there little guy. Aren't you a cutie...


Don't be afraid! Meet Rupert- Hes a sophisticated gent.


How dramatic you look in the high contrast lighting, Rupert.

Unfortunately, when people spy his very feminine hue, they have a tendency to immediately assume he is, in fact, a beautiful madam. In order to combat the general populations ignorance for his radiating masculinity, he spent three years scouring the seas until he came across a quite suitable top hat. Dont be afraid of his seemingly dangerous tentacles, though; Hes a quite proper and will probably offer you a spot of tea. With a gentleman such as this, youll be sure to enjoy the company, even if you cant stand the salty flavor of the tea.

And just for fun...since looking at his picture was screaming at me to do a little editing....lol


Now for the technical part.
He was made during pattern testing for EssHaych, here on Craftster. It was a darling pattern, so props to her! Smiley I used a G hook and some Bernat Satin in Sea Shell (How fitting!), as well as a 'tiny bit' of random ww acyclic in rose that I had lying around. After working with EssHaych, we got all the kinks worked out and he came out beautifully. She's absolutely wonderful to work with.

After getting him put together, my boyfriend demanded that he was, in fact, male, regardless of his pinkish hue. [And to think I wanted to add a little bow!] So we decided we couldn't make him any more sexually confused, and made him a little top hat out of a black sheet of fun foam and a little hot glue. He's much happier now. ^_^

If you want to check him out on Ravelry, his page is located HERE

Thanks for looking!

3  Seeking pro suggestions for doll/ amigurumi hair in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by MissFlynn on: March 02, 2009 11:44:24 AM
While I have seen countless dolls and techniques to putting in hair, I'd like a little help...or maybe it's support XP from those of you who have haired countless dolls...or even just one and atleast sort of know what you're doing (because really who does).

I'm a little hesitant to jump in like I normally do because, as of this moment, I'm quite proud of my achievment. I spent countless hours planning during classes >.>, working out patterns, and working it up in actual yarn and cloth, and I'd hate to start and later realize I could have done it better this way or that way. (It really bugs me to not have it just that perfect way you want it). Anyway, enough ranting like a proud mother...it's just yarn XP (god, I'm lame). I'm making a "doll" per sey, or rather a yarn embodiment of hundreds of hours spent on warcraft haha for the boy. It's a male character, with longer hair. I drew a crude diagram of how the hair is/ where the part is/ the way it lays.

Is this the best way to do it? Horizontal latch hooking on the hair line (1) and vertical throughout the rest to follow the part(2)? Also...I've seen hair caps done, as I haven't done the haired section of the head in the hair color would that be a better way to make it look better/ easier to work with...or would it just distort the head shape. As you can see I am anxious to start yet nervous XD. Until then I will continue with the other parts and the ungodly amount of gear he wears.

Any help, affirmation, support would be much appreciated.

4  Cute Otter Madness in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by MissFlynn on: February 25, 2009 06:21:15 PM

My best friend Rich asked me to do him a favor and make an otter ami to include in his valentines day gift, since he can't crochet and all. Being the nice friend that I am, ahem XP, I whipped this up over the span of two days when I was stranded in Springfield for my brothers award ceremony with nothing to do. I think he's pretty adorable. ^_^

I got the pattern here: http://www.crochetkitten.com/patterns/amigurumi.html Edited the paws and added a muzzle. Overall, it was a great pattern and it came out super cute! I wish I got better pictures before giving it to Rich but I was finishing it up just as I had to leave for the day and the lighting was horrid. Hopefully he comes through for me this weekend when he goes to visit her (LDR). This is *technically* my first finished amigurumi... finding eyes was a pain in the butt.
