1  Mushroom Mushroom! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by thatcoolkidmitch on: August 24, 2011 03:23:49 PM
I am such a busy bee! The only reason I have made all three of these in two days is because I work from home. So I spend most of my days crocheting. My hands barely cramp up anymore! Anyway, since my last post I decided to do my own set of crochet things and I decided to do something simple: Mario Mushrooms! I am doing a set of Mushrooms including some of the newer ones from the newer Wii Mario games. Hope you like them Cheesy

2  So many pieces! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by thatcoolkidmitch on: August 23, 2011 12:54:24 PM
After getting into Amigurumi about two months ago and making a few things, a friend of mine asked me to make her 10 pieces that she could turn into hair pieces and little hats for Lolita styled pieces. So I have about 10 pieces to show off. These are my first real go at amigurumi and I have had a really fun time.

Mario Mushroom

Pikachu (had the most issues with this one)

Pokeball and Masterball

Flat Bunny and Mouse

Black Mokona

White Mokona

Little Mouse


Oof! So many. Sorry for the photo spam. I am super proud of everything. I am even working on some larger pieces now. Ahh! Cannot stop crocheting!

3  Small Amigurumi problems, help! in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by thatcoolkidmitch on: August 09, 2011 05:25:06 PM
I am working on some smaller pieces for a friend of mine, various smaller amigurumi pieces that she is going to turn into hair pins and hats and such. One of the ones I'm working on is a little pikachu. I'm not positive on the gauge yarn the one I am using is, but I have been using a F hook (3.75mm) to do so.

So far I have the body done, which was simple:

 (this was before stuffing he is nice and rounded now)

Well, I still have to make ears and a tail. The tail I dont think I'll have issues with at all (thought I haven't tried) but the ears are what has made me put this project to the side for about two weeks, but my deadline is coming up and I still have 7 other various pieces to make.

So far I have tried making smaller cones using the same F hook and it just looks like a knotted mess. I tried using a magic circle with 2 SC, another row of SC then an increase to 4SC, 2 in each but it still doesn't look right, then another row and it just...it doesn't look right. I thought maybe it was the gauge of black I was using but when I just tried to make the ears with the same yellow I used to make the body, it still doesn't look right. I cannot figure out how to make it's ears look...not a tangled mess of knots.

HELP! I am so lost and have no idea how to carry on. If you don't know what the ears are suppose to look like, it looks like, here is a slew of pictures: http://www.google.com/search?q=pikachu&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=994&bih=581

I am hopelessly lost.

Hey all! Do dragoneyze got my package today! So I am going to go ahead and post the pictures for her since she doesn't have a camera ^_^ (Dont make fun of my painting XD) And just so everyone knows, this was done very last minute cause my boyfriend accidently threw EVERYTHING away when cleaning up his apartment. So I had to start over from scratch D:

Zoe Scarf! Based on her necklace, which Dragoneyze said she wanted. I'm not much a jelwer but I sure can Sew! XD Z for Zoe :3

Firefly incense burner! With Fireflys and secret message. You can barley see the "It's not Incense" message on the opening. I didn't do it on purpose but ya know, its kinda neat.

Serenity Candle Holder. I made 4 of them, which doesn't give them justice cause they look really cool with a candle in it. Apparently two broke on the way Sad which makes me sad cause I don't paint but my roommates liked them lol.

other side.

bad picture, this one says "Take me out, to the black."

a VERY special hell!

Can't read this one, but its the Miranda quote from The Tempest, "O brave new world, that has such people in it." ^_^

The bag! This is my first real bag attempt. Its reversible :3 The quote on the side is the "If you can't do something smart, do something right."

inside out! My first time doing calligraphy too :3 (I practiced a lot XD)

Anywho! Thats what Dragoneyze got for me! I had a wonderful first swap ^_^
