Thank you so much for sharing this, it was amazingly beautiful and poignant.  It made me cry.

That wasn't what I was asking.  I was asking how you got the washers on the eye posts.

I know...  Let me try this again - When you make the arm, you put the eye inside at the top, with the post sticking through a stitch to the outside of the arm.  Then, when you sew the top of the arm closed, you have a completed arm with a post sticking out the side.  The eye part on the inside is wide enough to keep it from pulling through your work.  Then, when you make the torso, and you get a little bit past where you want the arms to be (just a couple of rows past, or you'll make things difficult for yourself) you stick the post (sticking out of the arm) into a stitch on the torso, so that the post is now inside the animal's torso, and the arm is against the outside of the torso.  Then you simply take the washer and put it onto the post, connecting the arm to the torso.  Does that makes sense now?

How in the world did you do his feet?! He's so cute.

His basic construction is based off of several patterns from this book:   http://www.amazon.co.uk/Amigurumi-Super-Happy-Crochet-Cute/dp/1417813318/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260902055&sr=1-2

Ha!  That's great!  He looks a lot like this Bear pattern from a Singer sewing book that I've made countless times over the years (only with his insides falling out!)

While I am not a fan of anything drug related, I think your little bunny is great! I especially love the dreads. He's definitely something my husband would get a kick out of.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of anything drug related, either.  But when thinking back on my HS experience, and all the various kinds of little punks I knew and loved, there was always a kid like Josh.  He just demanded to be made.   Wink

Here's the latest in my collection of amigurumi punk delinquents, Josh, The Stoner Bunny.  His half-lidded eyes indicate that he's a bit more laid back than my other kids...  Can't imagine why.  Favorite part?  Those white-boy dredlocks.  I made a doll wig out of wool felting yarn, and used a tiny bit of the leftover to make his obligatory goatee.  Hardest part?  Cutting out and stitching that miniscule felt pot leaf onto his tie-dye shirt - It really wanted to fall apart.  For the record, I don't advocate any illegal activities (Josh might, but he's a minor, so don't go too hard on him).

did you use safety eyes for the joints?  If so how did you manage to get the backs on them.

Yes, I did.  You have to attach the arms while you're still making the body, before the torso is even complete. 
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Steampunk Halloweenies! on: November 03, 2009 06:37:32 AM
My boyfriend and I went as a steampunk couple this year - I was a air pirate and he was a time-travelling detective.  With the exception of my hat, goggles, boots and gloves, everything on my costume was made from scratch.  His was mostly thrifted, but I made his goggles from some tins I found at the craft store and some recycled plastic italian ice cups, and I'm especially proud of them.

Wow! This came out really well!

And yes, you may post your modifications as long as you don't post any part of the original pattern. Creativity is never frowned upon here! Smiley For example, you might post something like:

"In row 3, I used 2dcfl instead of 2dcbl"

but not paste the pattern and THEN re-paste it with your changes.

Thank you!  Smiley
