I like it, it's classy and it looks like something a high fashion designer would make.

sounds like a cute idea to me!

I don't normally wear hats but I love both of them, so cute! I've been meaning to integrate watermelons into my crocheting lately...the scarf idea is perfect inspiration [:

I'd be on board for a LBP swap, the game is so amazing. After the holidays is cool with me, I try to check the swap board regularly.

she's really cute, I didn't think something like a draft stopper could be crafted up into adorableness  Smiley

This is a posting from the CrochetMe website on what to use as stuffing for crochet projects or stuffed animals, recommending avoiding using rice to stuff things with... http://www.crochetme.com/amigurumi-deconstructed
"Never, ever, use rice or beans in crochet projects... or as stuffing. Ever. In anything. That's why God made plastic.

Bugs do not invade plastic.

Starchy dried beans, on the other hand, will attract weevils, especially if they get any moisture (even humidity), and potentially other starch eaters as well. Moths and their maggot-like larva, silverfish, and everyone's favorite, cockroaches, too.

They make special beads for this job, and for larger "beans," plastic pony beads or similar will do the trick.

Rice and beans are also unwashable. Meanwhile, plastic is perfectly washable. But the biggest problem remains the fact that, unless you keep your doll in an airtight container (what fun - and bugs are known to get into those, anyway,) sooner or later you're going to have an infestation on your hands, and a piece of garbage where once an adorable amigurumi stood.

Here's hoping you read this, Ms. Werker, and I further hope that you'll find a way to open and de-bean your amigurumi.

PS: The phrase "amigurumi dolls" is redundant. Such a little helper I am. Okay, so some would say pestilential corrector... but redundancy is a pet peeve of mine. I swear if I hear "Sahara desert" one more time, some nasty stuff is goin' down.

Although I realize you probably need something heavy and dense for a draft stopper, just, seeing/reading your post reminded me of that ^

very cute! have you tried wrapping the ends of the pipe cleaners around a stitch on the face? or maybe, stick a foam ball in the middle/front of him, poke the pipe cleaners through, and stick them into the ball? that might keep the whiskers in place  Smiley

very cute, the red lining was a good choice. The panda looks like a pic that would go good on the cover of the book Eats Shoots and Leaves

I love this, and have finally started my own "hexi-ghan"  Cheesy 3 hexigans done, a billion more to go!

while I haven't played WoW before, my boyfriend and his mom do, and they both thought these looked really cool. I agree, after seeing the little hearthstone icon in the game, you got the design dead on.
