11  Whoo!! Hello Octopus! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Xbeautiful_disasterX on: April 24, 2012 12:20:04 PM
I got this pattern off etsy from angelsunawares. He was pretty fun to do and fairly easy. I used a J hook thow, since I couldnt find an 11.5 and didnt want to buy one off ebay.

Im thinking of making a red and a purple one in the future, I need a break from chunky yarn thow lol

13  Plushie hammerhead shark! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Xbeautiful_disasterX on: April 06, 2012 10:29:27 AM
I recently did a sea creature swap and my partner had seen my 3foot crochet hammerhead on the crochet board and told me how much she loved him, but i didnt have enough time to crochet one for her sooo i popped in jaws and went to work on drawing up a pattern for this guy!

Sorry, only picture I took of him. I modled him off my crochet one so he's about 3 feet long and at first I didnt like him, he turned out really tubbey with tiny fins but once I got him all together he looked rather cute that way lol

15  Orca Whale in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Xbeautiful_disasterX on: April 06, 2012 10:21:35 AM
I got this pattern off etsy from GemCreations. She makes some amazing patterns, I got the hammerhead shark pattern from her too! Im really please with how he turned out, except I sewed the belly patch on funkey, but ah oh well, he's still amazing!

I also did the bottom part of the tail in white to give him a more natural look and there was a second belly patch part, but i didnt make it since i made the tail white.

Thanks for looking guys!!!!
