1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fox McCloud, tough but fuzzy, sturdy but soft. on: February 03, 2012 08:01:05 AM
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/

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Whose boots are these? on: January 04, 2012 03:25:36 PM

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

Happy new year!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crochet teddy bear, with link to pattern! on: November 01, 2011 01:41:37 PM
Hi everybody, I just finished writing a teddy bear pattern. I've made a few bears to get the right result and I'm finally happy now. It's a 'quick to make pattern", for a not too big bear so it won't take very long to make this bear.

Hope you like him! You can find the pattern for him at my blog http://sonspopkes.wordpress.com/.

Have fun! And, if you're going to make this bear, please write a comment on my blog, I would love to hear from you!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Alternative animal eyes on: September 09, 2011 11:24:34 AM
Sometimes it can be very difficult to find the right animal safety eyes and because of that I had to find an alternative. I found a good alternative (polished brads) which I use for a while now and it works great! If you're interested how to use brads as eyes, check out my blog:


I've written and illustrated a post about the brads and how to polish and use them, and some other tips for animal eyes. Hope this comes in handy.

Warmest regards, Sonja.
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Finally, my Link amigurumi! **NOW WITH LINK TO PATTERN!** on: July 28, 2011 03:29:21 PM
Some of you knew I was working on a crochet Link, I needed some help with his ears (thanks Bunniebard!) and working in rows...
Now he's finally done! Party designed by me and with a little help from two patterns. Tanoshimou translated a Japanese Link pattern with a Link with a movable head. I wanted that too and also liked the boots she made. I changed both into shapes and sizes I liked better but had a great example! I also used the Nerdigurumi Toon Link pattern a bit, to learn how to make a vest. I changed the Nerdigurumi vest and liked the hat from that pattern too, also changed that, made it a bit wider till the end and longer. The shield from that pattern is perfect in my opinion, so I just made that one. Because I wanted to attach the shield and sword permanently to my Link, I didn't make the shield blade but an own designed sheath and her handle. So, in the end only the belt medallion, sword handle and the shield are as same as the patterns.

My goal was to make an unique and new Link. But because I'm still quite new to crocheting, I was grateful I could use these patterns as examples! I think I reached my goal though Smiley. And ooh, the face was a tricky part! I wanted to give him the toon Link eyes, because he's supposed to be Wind Waker Link. It took a while before I was content with the them, tried things like felt eyes and embroidered eyes, but liked this the best. I painted a piece of felt with acrylic die to make it feel more steady and pinned safety eyes in them. The nose mouth and eyebrows took also a while. Link looked from a complete dork to an anry chap before I got the final expression.

Anyway, I hope you guys like him! C&C is very welcome! I now have written and posted the pattern on my blog. The link is below the pictures!

Here he is:



Thanks for watching.

And here you can find the pattern

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Wall-E, Wind Waker skull and Makar. on: July 19, 2011 02:24:57 PM
Just wanted to show these. A year ago I saw a papercraft sculpture and thought it was cool. Maybe a fun hobby! So I made a few things but never did anything with them and didn't really like doing it, so it didn't became a hobby.

I made a Zelda Wind Waker skull first, that one was pretty easy:

Then I made a Makar, one of my favourite characters of the game:

And the last thing I will ever make, lol, is Wall-E. This one I almost smashed a few times out of frustration and anger because it was just too tiny and annoying for me to do. He turned out nice though and I gave him a nice spot in my home.

Thanks for watching!

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Trouble working in row's instead of spirals....please help! on: July 02, 2011 04:35:29 PM
Hi all,

For the first time I'm working on a pattern which is in row's instead of spirals. I checked out how working in row's works and see everywhere you do a sl st to attach your last stitch to the the first of the row to close it and than a ch of 1. But when I do that I get one stitch to many...which seems logical because I add that one with that chain of 1 don't I? I don't get it....

For example: My first round has eight stitches after my sl st. like it should. Than I add my chain of 1 and start on round two which says, 2 sc in each st around - 16. But guess what, when I'm at 16 I still have one stitch left...the ch of one....

It doesn't say ch 1 at the beginning of each round in the pattern but does say 'this is in rounds so don't forget the sl st at the end of each row'.
Can I skip that chain of 1? I understood that's a must when you work in rounds, to go 'round up'.

Note: after my ch of 1, I hook into the stitch closest to the hook but not on the hook for my first sc.

Can anybody help please? I don't get this  Huh
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bomberman's on: July 01, 2011 03:18:45 PM
I think there aren't much Bomberman fans around here but nevertheless I want to show my second one. I thought Bomberman needed at least one buddy. I also had to write down my pattern correctly but needed to test what I'd scribbled on pieces of paper for the first one, and this was a good opportunity. Now the pattern is done  Grin

Here he is! Thanks for watching and comments and tips are welcome of course! Maybe I should have made his head bigger....

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crochet Bomberman/Dyna blaster on: June 20, 2011 04:05:58 PM
Whee, I'm happy with him  Grin. I wanted to make a amigurumi Bomberman right when I started crocheting but needed some practice first. I loved this game when I was a kid and still do, it's fun, just blowin' each other and the enemy up hehe. The old school Bomberman or Dynablaster is the most fun to play I think. The newer ones might look nicer but I always loved the old ones better. I tried to make my Bomberman as old-school as possible.

I wrote the pattern myself.  I'm thinking of putting it online but have to write it down properly first.

Here he is! He's missing his bomb...

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Little Ewok on: June 11, 2011 03:58:17 PM
The Ewok pattern of LucyRavenScar is so cool, I needed to make me one!
I used a bit darker yarn because I had that one still laying around, but I like the effect. The feet looked difficult to make, but they're easy to make thanks to the clear pattern!

I'm going to keep him  Grin
