1  Re: Advanced Shaping in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by achgfd on: October 09, 2011 07:02:15 PM
I just made a doll and had a lot of the same issues.

This is Sona from League of Legends Body. I couldn't find the right pattern for giving her that hourglass shape so I made something up. Essentially I made a regular ball but instead of closing it the last two rows I just single crochet up until it was long enough and then began to increase into another 'ball' shape. I went through the back loops on the bottom going up, so that I could crochet her skirt right into her torso through the front loops I didn't use.

Okay this was the next step. Attaching the head, arms, and boobs! I made the mistake of not making her breasts with the initial torso, so I struggled to find a way to make them come out but not like balls. So I crochet two small circles, one peach and one blue, Then I sowed them together in like a flat cookie shape. Then I folded that in half so its color on each side. THEN! I sowed it to her body. I think they came out pretty well!

OMG I RECEIVED FROM MINK BIKINI! I have to say that I am tickled pink by everything I've gotten. My mother-in-law was impressed as well! (very hard feat to do I must tell you). She must have known about my love of hats. Especially ones with ears on them. And the headband! <3 I have been wearing it alllll day. Everything is so perfect!
First is a group shot of everything I got. Then the little purse- perfect for my crochet hooks! Yay ty! I was losing them! Then a white Barrett. Please disregard the goofy face. I am terrible at head shots. Next is the black rectangle hat with kitty ears! So neat that its a square, but when I put it on my head it forms the ears. And I love the little popcorn detail. I'm glad you liked making it so much! And then my favorite! The headband! It has two sides, didn't show the other sorry. But it is so delectably cute. When I wear it and make dinner I feel like Cooking mama!

And finally is the kitty ears and kitty tail! the tail is awesome! I never thought of using a clip to detach it. Thats a great idea! The ears are also curved! Still working on how to wear the ears. I think my hair might not be thick enough, not used to these kinds of clippies. But they are so cute!

I am in love with everything I received! Thank you so so so so much!

the running theme of the nurses does seem to be the covered face. In 1, 2, and 3 I think the faces look more like they are covered by plastic bandages, and Origins, 5, and the movie its more like a dark ash-y fleshy look.

You can still have hair showing and keep the theme of the nurses. In 1 they had short straight black hair, very Japanese- but you could make it look a little messy.

And these nurses look more like the bandages cover the whole head- including hair.

This looks like a really good option!

I actually think it looks better with some kind of detail on the face and back of the head instead of leaving it just white.
and here is a pic I found of just two different SH nurses together

Yay I received! I actually got my package yesterday but just didn't have time to put up pictures. Now I do! There are a lot of people coming and going in our house, so sometimes a package is easily missed. It wasn't until that evening when My sister in law came over for dinner that she told me I had a package downstairs. Very exciting!

When I opened up the box there were some packages wrapped very pretty. I almost felt bad about opening them, but I was way to excited. So ripping the paper off I looked at the biggest thing first. My own pokeball tote bag! And the silly bands that fell out. (delightful extras.) It's very cute, the pokeballs sown on so well. And I love the charm attached. It has a caterpie, which is one of my favorites.

Next is a cute charm bracelet! It has badges, and pokeballs, and gems on it. Very nice!

And my favorite are the pokeball stud earrings. Super excited! They are really cute, and pretty comfortable too.

Lastly there was a very nice letter attached. Somehow I always forget to include a thank you note, or a letter saying what was inside. Sad I just get too excited about sending out I guess! Thanks so much for all the stuff!

Here's the picture of the bouquet at the wedding, now its a little smaller and dried out.

Maybe I should just toss it out? Do people keep their bouquets?

o The tubey idea sounds good. He is a fat cat, but he's also a large cat. We think he might be part Main Coon. He's a little smaller than our cocker spaniel. We had to make him a special litter box too out of those large plastic tubs you get at target.
Here is how he wakes me up to feed him:

And begging for cuddles:

The cardboard tubes, are they as easy to rip apart as cardboard boxes? Or is the carpet there to end that? We would just give him those- but he tears up the bottom and then eats the shreds.
