23  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Miles Edgeworth, a first try at a chibi. on: March 04, 2010 09:08:45 PM
So, usually my amigurumi are tall and lanky, like a barbie doll. But they take a long time to make. (I'm doing a final fantasy xiii one now that is going to drive me crazy, especially because I want it done by Tuesday. ugggh...)

So I decided, it's probably time to give in and develop a chibi pattern or two. So to experiment, I made Miles Edgeworth from the Ace Attorney series. (I've be playing Ace Attorney Investigations wherein he is the main character and I love it. ^_^)

I'm not sure about it's shape here and there, but overall I'm pretty satisfied.

I only have the one picture for him (my camera was almost out of battery power when I took this), but if someone wants to see him at another angle, just let me know and I can try to add one. ^_^

Thanks for looking!  Grin

This is so cool! As soon as I saw it, I immediately called my boyfriend over to see it. (He's a big fan of the game.) We both love it, great job!  Grin

I literally don't even know what to say to this...it's sheer magnitude of awesomeness is too much for my brain to comprehend all at once. I would like to start a slow, deliberate clap that will turn into applause for you now.

26  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cute Japanese Critters on: February 11, 2010 08:09:21 PM
Didn't know what else to call this.  Tongue
I saw this little Japanese felt book a long while back and wanted all the plushies so bad....but it was already sold. So I figured, to heck with it, I'll just crochet them! And make them tiny! So I did.  Grin
(Here's the book's cover: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7587898)
I made the Tanuki, Sky Dragon, and Takoyaki Octopus (I call it that becuase it looks like the octopus' they put on takoyaki stand signs). I also added a kappa even though it isn't on the cover just because I wanted one.  Cheesy
I'm gonna make all of them eventually, they are just too cute!!! (Btw, they all fit in one of my hands, all at the same time. ^_^)

There's the group.

Here's just the tanuki. (Forgive the bad lighting.)

The sky dragon. (He has clouds on his tail. ^_^)

The takoyaki octopus.

The kappa.

Here's one where you can see his shell a bit better.

And here's another group shot where you can see them all at once a little bit more clearly.

Thanks for looking! ^_^
27  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Heartless love Valentines Day! on: February 08, 2010 07:29:15 AM
Oooh, sorry Ninjanator, I forgot to put that in the description! It's from the Kingdom Hearts video game series. I'll edit the post and add that in, thanks for pointing it out! Grin
28  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Heartless love Valentines Day! (Pattern Added) on: February 07, 2010 10:57:08 PM
And why wouldn't they, theres hearts ripe for snatching everywhere!
Hey look, that little guy caught a big one!

Lol, it's an amigurumi of a Heartless just in time for Valentines Day, yay!!!
I've been wanting to make my own heartless (EDIT: forgot to mention it's from the Kingdom Hearts series of video games) for awhile now, and the impending Valentines Day just seemed like a good reason to finally get around to it. ^_^
The best part is, he's small, so I came up with the idea, made the pattern, and crocheted him all in one day!
I have to mention though, that it wouldn't have been possible for him to be so cute without the big heart he has, and I made it using the wonderful pattern (look it up on here, it's great!) by Maggielove! THANKS MAGGIELOVE!!!! Grin
Now for more pic's!
Here he is without the heart so you can see him a bit better. He has little picot fingers lol!
Here he is with my hand for a side view and size comparison.

And finally, just one more cute pic.  Cheesy

So snuggly! Thanks for looking!

EDIT:I wrote up my pattern for this, and am giving it out free. ^_^ You can get it on this post, and on my blog. Note: this is only the pattern for the heartless, the heart wasn't patterned by me, but can be found on craftster in a post by Maggielove.

Heartless Pattern
Materials needed: 1) worsted weight yarn in 2 colors.
A.   Black (everything but eyes)
B.    Yellow (eyes)
      2) An f/5 (3.75 mm) crochet hook
      3) Fiberfill
Note: this entire pattern is worked in the round. Stuff pieces with fiberfill as you go before they become too narrow to fill. Dont over-stuff, just use enough so the piece retains its shape. If you find stuffing difficult at any time, try using your crochet hook to cram that fiberfill in there!

Round 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Inc around in each sc. (12)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (18)
Rnd 4: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 8 times. (27)
Rnd 5-7: sc in each sc around. (27)
Rnd 8: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 8 times. (18)
Rnd 9: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (12)
Rnd 10: dec 6 times. (6)
Rnd 11: 1 dec. (5) Cast off.

Rnd 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Inc around in each sc. (12)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (18)
Rnd 4-6: sc in each sc around. (18)
Rnd 7: *2 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last *  3 times, sc in each of the last two sc. (13)
Rnd 8-10: sc in each sc around. (13)
Rnd 11: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (7)
Rnd 12: sc in each sc around. (7) Cast off.

Rnd 1: With yellow yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc) Cast off. Make two.

*Note: this one piece of the pattern only is done in rows, not rounds.*
Row 1: With black yarn, chain 16. In 2nd chain from hook, make an sc. Sc in each of the next two chains. Slip st. in next chain to finish. (3 sc) Cast off. Make two. (Weave in your yarn tail towards the end of the antennae with the scs. This fatter end is the base of your antennae and is to be attached to the head. Optionally, if your yarn tail is long enough, you could use it to sew the antennae to the head.)

Rnd 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2-4: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 5: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (4)
Rnd 6: sc in each sc around. (4) Cast off. Make two.

Rnd 1: With black yarn, 4 sc in ring. (4sc)
Rnd 2: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (6)
Rnd 3-5: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 6: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (4)
Rnd 7: Dec one time. (3) Cast off. Make two.

Rnd 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (4)
Rnd 4-5: sc in each sc around. (4)
Okay, now I would like to point out that this pattern gets tricky a bit. If you have been stuffing the arm thus far (I hope you did a little), stop doing it here. The arm is finished; the rest of the pattern is forming the hand of the heartless (the hand is not stuffed). Dont cast off or anything, its still one continuous piece.
Rnd 6: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (6)
Rnd 7: sc in each sc around. (6)
Now, you want to take the opening you have of the hand and slip stitch it shut. (Pinch the opening shut and slip stich across both sides of the opening, going under the vs of the stiches on both sides.) The hand is now complete. Dont cast off!
Once you have slip stitched across, chain 4. Slip stich this into the base of the hand. (1 picot)
This forms a picot stitch, and is the first of the heartlesss fingers. Do this picot stitch two more times evenly across the base of the hand to make the two remaining fingers. (3 picot total).
Cast off. Make two.

Congratulations! Youre done. As for assembly instructions, there isnt much to say as this pattern is old and my hand written notes dont include assembly. It is, however, fairly logical where each piece goes. (Example, the legs probably go on the bottom of the body, yknow, in typical humanoid fashion.) Just look at the photo on the first page and use it as your model, or sew the pieces on in any other way you wish for different poses. ^_^
Thanks for using my pattern!
29  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Final Fantasy Charms on: January 30, 2010 08:49:06 PM
Well, it was only a matter of time before I tried making these. (And by that I mean I couldn't wait!)
It's charms based on Final Fantasy creatures, yay!
I tried to take the pic's without the necklace part, but the lighting was bad when I tried (and still isn't great in these pic's), and I got impatient again! lol!
Anyway, from left to right the charms are: bomb (his crooked mouth apparently looks like a mustache lol), chocobo, cait sith, ultros (uncle ulty haha), black mage, moogle, and tonberry (just a face with a hood pulled up).

Here's a couple of close up's.

And finally, the finished product, a wrap around necklace. (It's based off of the one from the Jan. 2010 BeadStyle magazine, except I used a strip jersey fabric instead of ribbon, and just used whatever kind of chain, etc. that I had laying around.)
