21  Surprise cake girl! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: June 28, 2012 03:16:27 PM
You know when you have lots of things to do, but suddenly you have an idea and then you forget all the others responsabilities? This happens to me a lot!
This time I was planning to make a crochet cake from a free pattern that I found, and when I was almost finishing I took a look and thought: Hey, it kinda looks like a dress!
And then, my surprise cake girl happened!

What name should I give to her? Tongue

22  A Dream Couple in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: June 04, 2012 08:27:54 AM
These two are Ndia and Adrien. She is german and he is brazilian but somehow, through the dreams, they met each other.

They are a couple from a book called "Yume", that my friend  published last year.
I was planning to make them for give as gift for her, but she asked me to do now Cheesy
The heart is based on Zelda: Skyward Sword.

I had fun taking pictures of them together!  Cheesy

His overcoat and her crown are removable.  Smiley

Unfortunately, I didn't write a pattern, just some random notes that is too confusing for me now.

Hope you like!

23  A different card for Mother's Day in Crochet: Completed Projects by amapoet on: May 13, 2012 11:40:17 AM
For this Mother's Day, I was preparing something really different. I started to crochet this year, so I accepted the challenge of to make something of crochet. Wink

Why not a card? It's kinda simple, but she loved it! I don't know if you can see, but there are four little hearts inside the big one because I have 2 more brothers and 1 sister.

The message is "Mother, I love you" in portuguese 'cause I'm from Brazil Wink.
I sewed with felt to hide the embroidery on the back part.

Thanks for looking! Grin

24  I choose you! Pokemon-puppets! *2 patterns added* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: May 08, 2012 02:25:06 PM

I just added patterns to make chikorita and pikachu Smiley
You can download them at the end of the post.

I wasn't sure if I should post here or in "Crochet: Completed Projects" but I saw some puppets posted here before, so, here I am again!

Somedays ago I saw a few pokemons finger puppets crocheted at deviant art and then I became so inpired that I started to make some for me! I just stoped when I had made ten puppets. I had lots of fun making these

As you can see I also made a tiny pokeball puppet, though it is not a pokemon  Cheesy

From left to right in the first picture: Meowth, clefairy, dratini, chikorita and pikachu.
in the second picture: pokeball, charmander, diglett, horsea, oddish.

All of then saying hello:

Here's the basic pattern I used to make all. I used a 3mm crochet hook, I think that a size D will work well too. You can work in continuous rounds or join, I guess it doesn't cause much diference:

1: 6sc into a magic ring (6)
2: inc in each sc (12)
3-5: sc around (12)
You can add a extra round of sc if you don't be satisfied with their size.
Fasten off and weaving in ends

For diglett I just add the tiny black plastic eyes(with a small drop of white paint) and the nose is made of felt. For dratini I did the same, but there's more pieces of felt for the details of his head!

Thanks for looking!

25  Sophie, the tiny ballerina. *Now with pattern* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: May 04, 2012 08:22:03 PM
Hi! I have been working on this tiny ballerina this week, I made her for a friend who is a real ballerina. And my friend called her Sophie! Smiley She loved it, I hope you like too.  Wink

(Sophie is still learning ballet, she is very hardworking!)

I made her from my own pattern, it is my third pattern, I guess... And I'm planning to put here freely, but first I have to organize my scribbles.

Here are two pictures of her in my hand, so you can see her size:

I'm really proud of myself, because I worked hard to create her and more to sew all the small parts. But I found that she is really cute! I glued her eyes because they are so tiny and I didn't know how to sew it correctly in her face.


You will need:

You can choose any color for you ballerina, but have at least four: for the skin, hair, tutu and leotard!
Small amount of black embroidery yarn for the mouth
Fiberfill for stuffing
A 1.75mm hook, but I guess that a 2mm will work well too.

SC = single crochet
INC = increase
DEC = decrease (I recommend invisible decrease)
HDC = Half double crochet
DC = Double crochet
Ch = Chain
Sl St = Slip stitch

Head Work this in joined rounds
In skin color

1: 6 SC into a magic ring (6)
2: INC in each sc around (12)
3: SC, INC around (18)
4-6: SC around (18)
7: SC, DEC around (12)
8: DEC around (6)
Finish off

Hair Work this in spiral

3: SC, INC around (18)
4-5: SC around (18)
6: 3 HDC, 6 DC, 3 HDC, 6 SC (18)
Sew or glue to head this way:
  (Click to see bigger)

In hair color

5 SC into a magic ring, join to first sc. (5)
Finish off
Sew or glue to top of hair. With a piece of yarn of the dress color, I wrap around the bun, so, it looks like it's holding her hair.

Tutu - Work this in joined rounds

1: Ch 10, join to first Ch to make a circle.
2: 10 SC in each ch (10)
3: INC around (20)
4: SC around (20)
5: INC around (40)

Leotard/bodice - Everything of this part is made in joined rounds

Join (in the first sc of the first round) the color chosen for the leotard.
1: SC, DEC around (7)
2: SC, INC (10)
3: SC in front loops only (10).

Now, stop a minute and join the skin color to the first back loop (after join) of the leotard.
1: 2 SC, DEC around (8 ) (Will finish with a sc and not a dec)
2: 4 DEC (4)

And now back to work on the leotard
4: SC around (10)
5: Ch 6, skip the next 3 SC, 3 Sl St, Skip the next 3 SC, Sl St
Finish off

Arm (make two) - Work this in spiral
In skin color

1: 4 SC into a magic ring (4)
2: SC, INC around (6)
3: SC around (6)
4: SC, DEC (4)
5-6: SC around (4)
Finish off.

Leg (make two) - Work this in spiral
For this part, you will need two colors. Carry the yarn that is not being used inside the foot and pick up it when you need to change.

I'll change the color of the text when you need to change the yarn. Also, only this part will be all in bold.
Red: tutu color
Brown: skin color

1: 4 SC into a magic ring (4)
2: INC, SC, SC, INC (6)
3: SC 4, 2 SC (6)
4: SC, 3 DC, SC, 2 SC  (6)
5: SC 4, SC 2 (6)

Now just work with skin color.

6: SC, DEC, SC in next 3 sc (5)
7: SC around (5) change to leotard color at the end of round.
8: SC around (5).
Finish off the first leg only. When finish the second leg, join with a sl st to the first one and work as it is one piece. The process is similar to the one I used with Milhouse, so, look to this picture:

9: Sc *around (10).
Finish off.

Now, sew the arms to the body, in a way it stay under the chains that you made in the leotard. Sew head to body and legs to the tutut, but stuff before. I dont stuff the legs or the arms.

And that is it! If you have any problem just say and Ill try to help. And if you find something wrong, tell me so I can change soon.

Hope you like! Cheesy

26  *New hair update* Milhouse from The Simpsons (With pattern) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: April 03, 2012 11:09:43 AM

Well, I was unhappy with Milhouse's hair. So I made another piece. Could you tell me if it got worse or better? Here's he:

(haha now I noticed that he looks like a criminal in this pictures  Grin)

End of update!

Hello!  Smiley There's a lot of characters from Simpsons I could make. Why do I made Milhouse? Ok, here is the story. My boyfriend kinda looks like Milhouse, so, his friends ask me if I could do one to gift him. And, well, I tried Tongue
I don't like so much of how his hair came out, but... I don't know how to make better. I have to be better on this thing of amigurumi's hair! Undecided Anyway, here is him:

It was my second amigurumi designed by myself.

Start with yellow yarn

RND 1: 4 sc into a magic ring (4)
RND 2: sc, inc around (6)
RND 3: sc around (6)
RND 4: sc around (6)

Finish off.
Arrange in half-circle shape and attach to side of head.

Glasses (with felt)

After sew the ears and nose to the head, I cut a red felt in glasses shape and two little circles of white felt.
I think the picture below can be helpful
(I dont use this exactly form, but I hope it helps you to make your felt glasses for Milhouse)
I glue the white circles on the red circles and I used fabric paint to do two dots on center of the glasses.
For the eyebrowns I cut two rectangular pieces of blue felt and glue above the glasses.
Here is a close of his face (click to see big):


Ok, I had never made amigurumi hair of felt, but I found it would be weird if it was with yarn or something like that. Also Im not so good of making hairs So I tried to made Milhouse's hair with felt! I dont know how to explain, but I took pictures of how I made, maybe it can help. But feel free to make anyway you think better.

Thanks for looking  Wink

27  Cell phone cases for gamers! in Crochet: Completed Projects by amapoet on: March 19, 2012 09:08:49 AM
Ok, I'm a gamer girl and I was wanting to make something like that, so, here I am!  Cheesy

Pokeboll and X-box symbol cases  Cheesy

I used a simple pattern for both, you have only to make chains till it reach the width of your cellphone and plus 1 ch. And then make single crochets around it til it cover all your cell phone. This way you can customise your case of anyway you want to.

I still pretend to make more different cases, I would love if someone make a suggestion  Tongue

28  Hatsune Miku! [LOTS of pictures!] in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: March 18, 2012 07:02:53 AM

I used a pattern that I bought on etsy, but with a few changes. I loved the pattern because it show so many details of her.  Smiley

I don't have a fixed scenario for take pics of my amigurumis yet. ^^'
I made her with a 3mm crochet hook. She is about 6 inches tall. I loved her eyes! I guess now every new amigurumi that I'll make based on anime figures I'll try to make eyes with felt and details like hers!
Here's a close of her eyes and top of the head:

I also made a cute heart with her colors which was not part of the pattern  Tongue

Yes, I loved to take pictures of her!  Grin
Thanks for looking! Wink

29  A little pikachu in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by amapoet on: February 21, 2012 05:58:58 PM
This is not my first amigurumi, but is my first project created by myself. I started to learn how to do amis about a month ago and I decided that it was time to do something by myself!  Tongue

I choosed the pikachu because I wanted one since when I started to do amigurumis, I know there's a pattern for it, but I just wanted one smaller than what I found.

It took a lot of time(about 4 days) because I was also trying to make a pattern while doing it.
Need a few improvements, I think, but I found him so cute anyway... Cheesy
here it is:

He's about 4 inches tall  Tongue
His mouth is embroidery and her eyes and cheeks are felted
I guess the tail was the most difficult part, I tried do it of different ways, and this is the result I found better:

Sorry for any grammar mistake, I'm still learning english ^^

Thanks for looking!!
