1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Super Mario Brothers (photo corpulent) on: May 12, 2009 12:51:17 AM
Well I've been on hiatus from crocheting for a bit. I've been lacking inspiration, but who can go wrong with a little Mario inspired craft, right? It never gets old.

I made a Mario to go with my Luigi that I posted a while ago, but then I ended up remaking Luigi, so that he's standing and not sitting. He's not quite the same as my last one because I was going off of memory. I wrote down how to make it this time and took step by step pictures, so at some point I'll put together a pattern for both Mario and Luigi. They were both made with a size F hook, Red Heart acrylic yarn, and the only things on them that aren't crochet are the circles on the hats. Mario stands about a foot tall and Luigi is about an inch and a half taller.

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / That was a hoot! Heffer Wolfe from Rocko's Modern Life (with pattern link) on: April 04, 2009 02:13:20 PM
First off, I'd like to apologize for the less than stellar pictures. I can't borrow my roommates camera because he is out of town this week and my cell phone (which takes halfway decent pics) is on the fritz, so I'm forced to use a webcam.

Anyways, I have many fond memories of my childhood. Some of the things that stand out the most, were the cartoons. There was nothing quite like Nicktoons in the early to mid 90s. Rocko's Modern Life was by far one of my favorites. It was so full of crude and jovial humor, much of which went over my head at the time, but it still retains a special place in my heart alongside Ren & Stimpy and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, among other shows. At some point I'll make the rest of the gang, but I give you Heffer Wolfe, loving and loyal friend to Rocko.

Here's a link to the free pattern I made:

He's made with Red Heart, a size D/3 hook, and some pipe cleaners for the legs and arms. I had intended to make a step by step pdf pattern and hock it on etsy, but I was too excited to see him come together so I didn't even take any pictures during the creation process, so now I give it to you free of charge. Surprisingly, he stands on his own.


3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Squidbillies on: March 27, 2009 02:18:37 AM
"Nothing binds a father and a son more closely than the truth behind the decapitated hooker in the rec room."

Another AdultSwim inspired set of amigurumis. It's a cartoon about a family of hillbilly squid, the Cuyler family, that live in Georgia.

Earlie and Rusty Cuyler

Rusty's sweet  sweet mullet

They're about 3.5 inches tall. I used Red Heart and a sized F hook and black acrylic paint (for the pupils and Rusty's acne).

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Arrrrrrr matey! Crochet Pirate Bearded Beanie! on: March 24, 2009 11:45:07 AM
If you're like me, often times you think to yourself, "Self... if I be a pirate, ye would've already be walkin' the plank at least 6 times today, ya scurvy dog! Ye should be abandonin' this life of work and taxes. Take to maraudin' the high seas, pillagin' and pullin' cunning stunts. Aye, ye won'ts be regrettin' it."

Unfortunately, I live too far from the warm waters of the Caribbean to abandon my humble, yet respectable life as a computer programmer... and it's far too cold here in Boston to live the life of a ne'er-do-well swashbuckler. Plus it would take ages for me to grow a respectable pirate beard. So, I came up with a compromise: the Pirate Bearded Beanie!  
This is my first attempt at something that isn't an amigurumi. I didn't use a pattern, just kind of made it up as I went along.

Loaded to the Gunwales

I used a size I (9) hook, arrrrrr!

Dirty Pirate Hooker

Shiver me timbers!

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Stewie Griffin from Family Guy on: March 22, 2009 03:09:41 PM
No sprinkles. For every sprinkle I find, I shall kill you.

Stewart Gilligan Griffin. Although he's only 6 inches tall and made out of yarn and fiber fill, he's still obsessed with world domination and matricide. I'll be adding a pattern of Stewie in the near future so you too can have your very own sexually ambiguous, evil genius baby. Victory is mine!
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Obamigurumi on: March 21, 2009 02:20:22 AM
I saw an Obama amigurumi on here before. This is my attempt at him. This was actually my second amigurumi project I ever made, the first project being a bunny (haha how far I've gone in just 2 months). I made it around inauguration time, just hadn't gotten around to taking pictures. With that being said, I need a better camera. I had a digital Canon Rebel stolen from me abroad last year and ever since I've just been using a cell phone. Boo.

He stands about 10 inches tall.

On another note. Why am I still awake at 5 in the morning, slightly inebriated, posting on craftster? Beats me.
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Sin City: That Yellow Amigurumi [img heavy] on: March 20, 2009 11:29:46 PM
Not the most savory of amigurumis ever, I present Roarke Junior, aka the Yellow Bastard from the Frank Miller's Sin City series (and movie).

he stands about 12 inches tall

I tried some techniques that I haven't used yet such as the recessed mouth. The teeth are just a pipe cleaner wrapped in yarn. He was made with a size F hook and Red Heart Super Saver yellow and black. The knife was made with modeling clay. I think eventually I'll make Marv, Dwight, and some of the "dames & broads" from the series. Black and white of course.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Brian Griffin from Family Guy on: March 17, 2009 04:40:51 PM
Who's leg do I got to hump to get a dry martini around here? The title pretty much says it all. This wee little Brian stands about 4 inches tall.

As promised, I've made a pattern for all to use. I debated whether or not to sell it on Etsy for 2 or 3 bucks, but alas, I felt in the giving mood, so I present it for free... buuuut, you'll have to go to my blog to find it. Muahahaha.

Directly to the pattern





9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / It's a me, Luigi on: March 17, 2009 05:40:33 AM
I think Mario gets far too much adoration. Even though he's always saving Princess Peach, I picture him as being the chauvinistic, slightly misogynistic one of the duo; whereas Luigi is the introverted, slightly awkward one with a heart of gold that pines over his best friend's girl, knowing full well she is an unattainable angel... or maybe that's just my imagination acting up again.

still need to finish the mushroom

I like the way his hat came out
10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Too Much Coffee Man on: March 16, 2009 08:57:18 PM
Too Much Coffee Man is a satirical comic strip, created by Shannon Wheeler. Google it.

I just wrapped up Spring Break this past week. Between time spent with my rents, my seesters, and my amigos while home in Texas, I made a bunch of random stuff. Crochet has quickly become an addiction. It's cheaper than therapy! Haha. I kid I kid... but seriously. Considering that I crochet, I'm a full-time intern for a software company here in Boston while finishing up my undergrad in comp science (meaning I spend way too much time typing away my life in front of a computer), I'm thinking I'll probably have carpal tunnel by 25. Haha.
