1  surprisingly cute dodo in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by chobah on: September 22, 2009 09:09:10 AM
This is my mauritas dodo.  I thought for sure while i was manufacturing his many little parts, that something was just not going to come out right, and he would end up looking messed up. well, it is a dodo, so i guess that was inevitable anyway, but I digress.  i found his pattern free online, so here it is, dodo it up!!

and here he is, murry the mauritas dodo.  Cheesy

the other day, I was filled with the overwhelming urge to crochet a lobster. to my dismay, there was pretty slim pickings as far as free online patterns went. I finally did find this one, and deemed it worthy of my time. here is the free link i used, there is a mermaid pattern too, but i was not in the right mood to get overly cutesy wootsy
my 4 month old daughter has falled maddly in love with him, and has decided that he belongs to her exclusively.  I was able to snag him away from his torments to be photographed, only after she passed out.  poor fred is a teether now.   so he is a bit beat up, and drooled upon in the pics, but i figured, better late than never

I got random inspiration from a cat crochet pattern I had, to try to capture the very essence of Bill The Cat from the comic strip Bloom County. I don't really know why i chose to make him, it jut felt right Smiley  Those who read the strip would hopefully recognize him, I did a make a few changes to the original pattern on the fly, and totally fudged some details like his hands and feet (sigh)let me know what you think.  the last pic is of him next to the cat from the original pattern

my apparent inability to follow a pattern strikes again!! I have dislexic tendencies, so it can be pretty hard for me.  i tried to make this one and it came out too long, or is it tall? i may have been crocheting too tight i think, but it is still recognizable and cute as hell  Cheesy  I am making another one tonight, and see if i can get it to come out right.  thanks for the pattern  !!! Cheesy

5  Misadventures in Aqua Teen land, with eventual redemption :) my first tutorial in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by chobah on: August 11, 2009 04:09:29 PM
Master Shake coffee caddy (fits medium iced coffee cup from Dunks, 24 oz cup? I think...)

I improvised and came up with this pattern to make myself a master shake
from a pattern I found on Instructables.com  I totally suck ass at following
patterns, my Master Shake came out looking all screwed up and lumpy
as all hell. (see my pics for proof  Undecided) I still had the itch to scratch, so I tried my hand at coming up
with my own design, with a few details borrowed from the previous pattern.
Now instead of a stuffy, I have a beautiful Master Shake Iced coffee caddy,
which will accomidate a medium Iced coffee cup from Dunkin Donuts.
I left out his straw, since he will get one from the coffee within him Smiley

white lilies and cream cotton yarn and size F crochet hook
6 SC into magic ring
round 1: 2 SC into each stitch around, SS in last SC of round (12)
round 2: 2 SC into each stitch around, SS in last SC of round (24)
round 3: 1 SC into first stitch, 2 in next* (*repeat to end of round)
               SS into last stitch of round (36)
the rest of the cup is worked in a spiral. Do not SS at end of round
round 4-8: 1 SC into each stitch around (36)
round 9: 1 SC into  next 11 stitches, 2 SC into 12th stitch* (*repeat
               to the end of round) (39)
rounds 10-11: 1 Sc in each stitch around (39)
round 12:  Sc in next 12 stitches, 2 SC in the 13th*
                 (*repeat to end of round) (42)
round 13-14: 1 SC in each stitch around (42)
round 15: 1 Sc into the next 13 stitches, 2 Sc in the 14th* (*repeat
                 to the end of row) (45)
round 16-17: 1 Sc in each stitch around (45)
round 18: 1 SC in next 14 stitches, 2 Sc in 15th*
                 (*repeat to the end of round) (48)
round 19-20: 1 SC in each stitch around (48)

switch color to gray worsted weight yarn, I used
Vanna's choice, but can't remember the names of
the shade of gray.

round 21-22: 1 Sc in each stitch around (48)
round 23: SC in first 14 stitches, decrease one stitch on 15th*
                 (*repeat to end of round) cut yarn, weave in ends (45)

I also used Vanna's choice for the hands, it's a bright yellow

Chain 5 with yellow worsted weight, with size f hook
turn, and single crochet across (4)
turn and single crochet across again. (4)
Turn, chain 3 and SS to first SC (4)
chain 4 and SS to 2nd SC
chain 5 and SS to 3rd SC
chain 4 and SS to 4th SC
cut yarn fasten off and weave in ends.

Now just make some eyes with felt pieces.
I Used ivory for the main part of the eye to
offset it from the white of the cup. Black for
the pupil, and a little dot of white for eye
embroider the mouth and chin, sew on the hands,
and Master shake is ready to cozy up to my size
medium Dunkin Donuts Iced coffee cup. 

NOTE!!!!!, the first pic is of crappy Master Shake, the last 3 are the new one

I made this for my 9 year old, she wanted some new fashion accessories for the upcoming school year. i am not too keen on the color, i think it's too Christmas esque.  either way here it is.  this is my first "wearable" not counting scarves and such.

8  my first stuffy. a piece of cherry pie in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by chobah on: August 06, 2009 02:41:48 PM
i have been lurking in the shadows for awhile here, this is my first official post. I got the pattern from a previous posting so it isn't original, but I'm still rather proud of it. I figure this pie can't make me any fatter  than I already am.
unfortunately my kids got ahold of it before i could get a good pic, so it's a bit lumpy looking but it works I guess.
