1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Kratos Sackboy Doll with Medusa Head on: October 17, 2010 04:47:40 PM
Hey guys,

It's been awhile since I've posted a new project, but I wanted to share a Kratos Sackboy Doll I created.  It took quite some time, but I really like how it turned out!  I had to learn two new things to do with it which was work with some chains and also work with polymer clay for the swords.  He stands at 12 inches tall.

Here he is:

He has a Medusa Head sewn to his right hand.  He has two swords which he can strap to his back.  One sword he can actually hold with his left hand too.  The Medusa Head has snakes with eyes I created from jeweled beads I glued on.  She has a little bit of blood dripping from her head because after all it has been ripped off!

This is my favorite photo!

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Piranha Plant Showdown! on: August 20, 2010 09:01:53 AM
It's the Battle of the Piranha Plants!  I was experimenting with shapes and sizes and made 2 different versions of the Piranha Plant.  Which one is more superior, Piranha Plant #1 or Piranha Plant #2?  Read the stats and cast your votes!

Height: 8 inches
Width of Bulb: 3.5 inches
Snaps per Minute: 5 SpM
Introducing PIRANHA PLANT #1. It grows to be a height of 8 inches tall and has a sizeable breadth to its red bulb at 3.5 inches wide. Its favorite snack is Mario and its large jaw is capable of swallowing Mario or Luigi in one big gulp. Its big head makes it a slow mover, but when it does take a bite, you better watch out or youll be dinner!

Height: 7 inches
Width of Bulb: 2.5 inches
Snaps Per Minute: 100
Next up, we have PIRANHA PLANT #2. A fine specimen indeed. This ones a baby and is still growing, but dont underestimate it. What it lacks in size, it more than makes up in viciousness and appetite. Its jaws snap at a feverish pace and can set a record of 100 SpM (Snaps per Minute). A couple of those snaps will surely shrink you down in size!

Who will win this match?

And o no, Kitty makes a serious mistake while searching for some catnip.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / 175 Amigurumis on: August 03, 2010 08:59:58 AM
Hey all.  This year in July I was in Artist Alley of Anime Expo and I wanted to show you guys all the amigurumis I made in preparation for it.  It was about 175 amigurumis in all!  The most I've ever made at one time.  It took me from about January to end of June to do it, but for the bulk of the crochet it was from March to June.  Here are some photos and closeups.  They're all made from my own personal patterns.

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Sackboy with Zipper Pouch on: June 06, 2010 11:00:25 PM
Hey guys, I decided to make Sackboy but with a sort of utilitarian purpose to him.  I wanted to make his zipper workable, but I thought it wouldn't be a good idea if all his stuffing and guts were hanging out, so I made a little pouch in which you can put little trinkets in such as a small note, coin, or perhaps candy.

The parts that gave me difficulty when doing it was first trying to make the open mouth.  It was my first time attempting the open mouth look.  I just took a circle and then sewed it in half down the middle to make a semi circle which I then crocheted into the head. 

The pouch I was able to make by sewing on a rectangle crochet piece behind the zipper inside the body.  So here he is!

You can read more about the construction at my blog post here:
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Glow in the Dark Kodama! (with new Photography update) on: May 18, 2010 10:39:17 PM
06/01/10 Photo update!

Hey guys, I wanted to give the Kodamas a proper photo session, so I took them over to a Japanese Garden for their photo shoot!  Enjoy.

You can check out more of the photo shoot and in larger resolutions here:


Hey guys, I had so much fun playing around with this Glow in the Dark yarn.  I knew I wanted to make something special for it and I thought the Kodamas from Princess Mononoke would be perfect for it!  The yarn I used is called Nightlights, and it really does glow in the dark!  It's made from nylon.  The yarn strand itself was a little too skinny for me, so I double stranded it and then it was perfect for amigurumi-making!  Here's some pics of the Kodamas. I created 2 different versions - 1 sitting and 1 standing.  Standing one kinda reminds me of an alien.  The last pic you see is of it glowing in the dark.  Wish I could get a better in the dark picture.  

I also uploaded a video on you tube so you can see the ami and yarn in action.

Oh yes, and I'm also including a link of the free pattern.  I think these Kodamas all would like to have some more trees to dwell in ^^

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Gromit Amigurumi! on: May 04, 2010 05:32:09 PM

So I made 3 different versions of Gromit, before being satisfied with this one.  It was the head that gave me trouble because I wanted him to have his forehead jut out a little, and then for his snout be more pronounced.  So this is what I ended up with!   It's my cat, Booty in the background ^^  Mikey is there too, the white cat, but I cut him out, hehe.

You can see more pics here of my previous Gromits as well as WIP pic!

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Kawaii Kitty Amigurumi <3 on: April 21, 2010 05:05:04 AM
Here's my Kawaii Kitty!  It's my basic kitty pattern that I created ^^  I made one in teal, yellow, and pink.  I like the teal one the best tho!  I think the flower collars gives them that extra special something =D  I didn't put one on Peaches (the pink one) because I wanted you guys to see the full shape of the kitty (poor Peaches!  I'll make you one later ^^)

Hehe and look I made collages using picnik.  That is like the coolest website ever!

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Kero-Chan! on: April 10, 2010 03:12:37 PM
Here's a Kero I made!  I'm been trying to experiment with different body shapes than the usual amigurumi ones that you see.  He's about 8 inches tall.  Ears were created not in the round, but by going in rows!  Maybe one day I'll make a go at Spinel-chan ^^

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Patches - the Carrot Loving Bunny *with pattern* on: March 01, 2010 10:13:11 AM

Hey guys, I've written up my first pattern and I wanted to share with you all ^^  I've made tons of these chicks and they're pretty easy and fun to make ^^

You can find the pattern as a pdf file here:

Hehe I also created a pattern page for it over at ravelry.
Anyways let me know if you find any mistakes in the pattern.  Since it's my first go, I hope the pattern is easy to follow.
