1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet Blogs - Add yours here! on: December 05, 2012 03:16:28 PM
Here you can find my blog, Son's Pokes: http://sonspopkes.wordpress.com/

It's contains beautiful patterns, tips and tricks and muck more about amigurumi.

My crochet animals usually have a woolly and natural look. For each project my goal is to create a playful doll with its own character. An expressive creature that radiates the enjoyment and the love I put into it while designing.

It's just great there are so many methods to make nice eyes.

And thanks for your compliment purple_sense, as a matter of fact, I'm working on a new and better version of that bunny at the moment. It will be finished soon I hope. That pattern I'm going to sell in my craftsy shop for a few dollars.

I just posted a few previews of the crochet lop rabbit at my blog, so if you're curious....

Thanks BunnieB!

Maybe we should start with the head....but lucky for me, I've never ruined a doll so far...I just keep on adjusting the face till it's good, or, till I've gone completely mad Tongue and decided the first try wasn't that bad...

A thing that always helps me when the face keeps on looking totally ridiculous is; I just get the doll out of my sight for a little while, and start fresh all over. Then I mostly get it right after a few tries!

And, a small tip, if the face seems a little off, look at it in the mirror, that gives a different perspective, which makes your brain see 'better'.

Ah, and there they are together! I like your fan girl behaviour Cool. Great dolls, great pictures!

My favourite scene from the last episode: Sherlock and Watson escaping from the police, running holding hands and Watson's comment about it, hehehe, just briliant! I bet you loved that one too.

And you're right, three long episodes a year is great too, and gives you something to look forward to!

Thanks for all your really enthusiastic reactions! That's just so great to hear.

He's made with Letit Lopi wool (except for the green), from Icelandic sheep. It's very rough and fuzzy.

Thanks for the comment about his face. At first I wasn't happy with it. I wanted to give him real Starfox eyes, the big white oval eyes he has, but that didn't work out al all and gave my doll a mean expression. I was really disappointed, it had cost me so much time and effort to make him, and now I didn't like him because he had this mean face....After a lot of doubting and testing different kind of eyes, I decided to just leave the white bit and make the eyes round. And it's just great now. Thanks to my boyfriend's good idea to add a black 'eyelash' above the eyes, he really got the right expression.

I think everybody here knows how important the face of an amigurumi is!

Meet crochet Starfox.

It was quite a struggle to make him, it took me a month, but now he's finished. I didn't love him at first, now I do! Designing him, and especially his head and face, gave me a bit of a headache. I hope you like him!

There's more about him at my blog: http://sonspopkes.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/crochet-starfox/

I really like your work, it's great! And you made a fabulous doctor. He was the coolest doctor too in my opinion!

I remembered you made that great Sherlock doll also and wondered if you'd already made my hero Tongue, Watson, and you did! He's turned out wonderful, I really love his stripy shirt, that's really Watson-ish and Martin Freeman at the same time. Have you seen the latest three Sherlocks? They were fantastic, I'm so disappointed there will be just three a year....anyway, great dolls!

Best, Sonja from the NL.

Yeah, it's from Starfox adventures! Starfox looks indeed fuzzy and cuddly in the gamecube game. It's a great game too.

You are right Jourdan! It indeed are Starfox his boots.

Thanks for the lovely comments! The rest of Starfox will follow.

Please feel free to guess which game figure's boots I just made! I'm curious anyone recognizes them Grin

Happy new year!
