Never heard of it? Kirby's friend Kine, a sunfish, made his first appearance in Kirby's Dream Land 2. Kirby and Kine combined to form a dynamic duo that my boyfriend became obsessed with and got everyone he came across to draw pictures of it [link]. This is my contribution.

As a follow-up to the Darth Vader I made a few years ago, I made this Obi Wan as a birthday present for my friend. I used some things I learned from that project in this one; this one is weighted with beans so he stands up on his own, and his head isn't as bulgy as Vader's kind of was... He has nowhere near as many accessories and moving parts an the Vader, but I think he's cute all the same.

I was actually considering putting up a pattern...  But I think it might get difficult, because I improvised a few pieces, and it would require a lot of diagrams/explanation...

Thanks for the suggestions!  I will definitely take them into consideration Smiley
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / A Very... *Hearty* Meal on: February 13, 2011 10:55:15 PM

So, my boyfriend and I are going to college, and he lives on campus in the dorms, and only has a 5 day meal plan (ie: no dining hall on weekends).  So, I've taken to making him lunch on Saturday, when he has club meetings to go to.  This weekend, I made him a special pre-Valentines lunch, complete with candy, conversation heart cookies, and heart shaped pasta, with little heart meatballs.

My roommate and I had fun with the cookies.

And I threw in pi...

Wow, thanks for all the wonderful comments!  I'm really busy at the moment with other things, but I'm in the process of making a whole series of these lil guys.  Any tf fanatics who know characters they'd like to see plushified?  Cheesy  G1 characters specifically preferred, tho a lot of the more recent series and movies tend draw on the old characters...

These I actually made a while ago, but I finally dug them up out of my craft box... 

Made out of felt (mostly cuz it's the most available material here...) and entirely my own pattern.  It took like a week or two of planning and sketching alone...

All of his joints are fully movable, and tho he does stand on his own it takes some work balancing...  And also the wheels actually turn.  I think bits of him, like his hands and head/neck mechanism, have a bit of an unfinished look...  But I consider this project completed.  I was also working on a Megatron, the G2 tank version, and I was almost finished...  But I had been improvising the head as I went along, and it never turned out right, so he kind of went into my pile of unfinished crafts...  I'm currently working on making the pattern more efficient, easier to make...  Because that one took like 3-4 weeks, which is way too long for my attention span...

As my first post, I don't necessarily know what I'm doing...    So I apologize if I'm doing it wrong...

Inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283500.0, using the same amigurumi person pattern, http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/2008/03/free-pattern-gandalf-and-legolas.html

This was a Christmas present for my boyfriend, who is kind of a Vader fanboy...  I looked at like a billion reference pics, and made everything as detailed as I possibly could.  I'm crazy like that.  Pretty much all of his... "accessories" are removable; the belt, the cape, the lightsaber, the two-piece helmet (the bottom piece has a silvery bit, I didn't get a picture of it, but from what I understand it's some voice thing?)  and his sleeve, showing his robot hand.  The scarring embroidered is as accurate as I could get it...  But again, I failed to take a picture.  I think he might be a bit too tan...  And I forgot to weight the bottom, so I needed to make a separate stand so he wouldn't just flop over.

All pictures taken with a cell phone camera, so apologies for quality...

Edit:  It made it to GeekCrafts!  http://geekcrafts.com/amigurumi-darth-vader/
