1  I made a Gizmo in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by binxpup on: October 03, 2010 03:25:54 PM
Anyone like Gremlins?? I saw a Gizmo in sewing and toys section and thought - oh my god I want one. So I gave it a go and this is what came out. After posting on Facebook - I have been told its head needs to be bigger so I'm working on Gizmo 2 with lots of improvements but I still think he is cute.

Any suggestions to make him better??

Thanks for looking

2  Lil' crochet baby monkey in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by binxpup on: October 03, 2010 03:07:51 PM
Here is my first monkey I have ever made from Ana Paula's great book, the pics really do not do here justice. I have made lots of Ami's but she is one of my favourites!

She is made from grren and brown priceless wool which is very reasonable as the name suggests but also is super soft. She is also wearing a tiny flowever which I got from the craft store - its meant to be for making wedding accessories I think but it i thought it made a lovely addition to her dress.

Hope you like my little sweet pea

5  My little house in the woods - with tips to make in Crochet: Completed Projects by binxpup on: September 04, 2010 06:11:42 AM
Well here goes my first attempt at anything like this, Ive been looking at the sculptures and was at a loss as how to make them.  so I decided to try make a mini doll house which you can carry wee little ami's in. I couldnt find a pattern but saw this,


And I thought wow!

Heres what I came up with - apologies - mobile pics don't show colours properly :-(

So I didn't have any worsted wool, or the right colours so I used two strands of dk weight yarn in brown and geryish brown for the building. I didn't have enough to make as she said but I increased in the usual fashion (6,12,18  ect) untill I got to about 60 (sorry can't remember exactly. Then I just worked straight until it was the desired height - mine is about 3 inches. Then I make the roof in red so it would be a little toadstooley that went ( rounds on left - total number of stitches on right)

1   6
2   12
3   12
4   12
5   18
6   18
7   18
8   24
9   24
10   30
11   36
12   36
13   42
14   42
15   48
16   54
17   60
18   66
The white lumps on roof are just magic ring, sc 6, then 2sc in each (12) fasten odd and sew on. Window is same but up to 18 sc, with window pane to 12 sc with two big stitches over the top to look like window panes.

The ivy is just loads of chain and after about 7 chains, I slip stitched in about the 3rd from hook - I varied the length of this to make bigger/littler leaves.

The flowers are just magic ring, 6 sc in ring fasten off - I sewed them on and then sewed the stew on once I had placed them right.

The handle is just one big chain worked with 4 strands.

It fits loads of mini amis in - perfect for litle girl who wants to take her amis with her.

I hope this made sense - I'll try to neaten up the pattern in due course but I didn't think it would work at all so my notes arn't much good.

Hope you like

7  Some crotcheting I've been getting up to in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by binxpup on: August 01, 2010 03:01:43 AM
Here's a few of my favourite toys I've made from free patterns on the internet/out of my book collection.

If any one has any advice on designing /making your own design I would really appreciate it as am dying to make my own toys from my own patterns which I then can of course share.

Thanks for looking peeps xx

8  Big Crotchet doll - First post in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by binxpup on: April 25, 2010 09:13:03 AM
Well heres hoping this works, this is my first go at posting but here goes.

This is my big (standing over a foot) crotchet doll. I used the Stitch Doll patteren with modifications as you can see to her size, and body shape, legnth of limbs and colour. I am quiet pleased with her, I made another very similar for my friends daughter which came out a little better but never mind. Her neck is a little floppy if anyone has any tips on that without putting sticks ect in would be great.

Thanks for looking !
