1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Elsa on: February 27, 2015 09:01:10 AM
When my at the time 3 year old saw Frozen, she was in love with Elsa and wanted and Elsa doll. So I tried to find one to buy and there was none!  Not a single Elsa to be found anywhere.  So I decided to make one.  I made the one with the darker dress for my daughter but I always felt that it wasn't quite right.  I hated that I couldn't get the colors quite right, I coudn't figure out the slit and I still wasn't sure about the doll pattern I made.  Fast forward a year and my niece has asked for one too.  I found a better color of yarn and decided to go with white where the lighter blue used to be and made the second Elsa.  This Elsa is less flexible - can't sit and knees don't bend -  I'm still not sure of the pattern (my next version of the doll had a smaller head).  But flexibility was something that the long dress took away in the first doll anyway.  Overall though, I like both the dolls and I hope you do too.

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Dyna Mite Lalaloopsy Doll on: November 19, 2013 09:23:17 AM
Finally finished the Dyna Mite doll.  A few months ago I came across a pattern for Lalaloopsy Doll pattern and since my daughter loves Lalaloopsies I bought it.  Epic Kawaii ( http://www.amigurumipatterns.net/shop/Epic-Kawaii/Lalaloopsy-Cherry-Crisp-Crust-Doll/) makes dolls that look just like the actual toys, I bought the one for Cherry Crisp - and will hopefully make it someday soon.  Instead I adapted it to make the Dyna Mite toy.

I actually really like the way that it looks.  But you could really tell that I'm horrible at sewing then you look at the goggles.  It took me a few tries until I got fed up with it. 

It's a little smaller then a full size Lalaloopsy doll

Hope you like it.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Turtle on: October 21, 2013 03:55:37 PM
I saw this turtle in Pinterest and fell in love with it.  I guess since I started crochet with amigurumi I never had any chance to learn motifs and this one has that and I just wanted to learn it.  So I tried to find the pattern, it was really hard but finally I tracked it down - and it was in Russian!  I don't know any Russian - and even if I did know there is no way that I would be able to translate the symbols!  Thank God for Google Translate!  But even then it was hard to follow - I guess it lost something in translation.  But finally I got it!  Hope you like it.  By the way the website is http://stranamasterov.ru/node/391189 if anyone else wants to struggle through it.
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Lexy Smurf on: September 26, 2013 10:17:10 AM
My daughter watched her first movie last month, Smurf 2, and she loved it!  Her favorite character was Vexy - she just loves the bad guys who turns good at the end - and she asked me to make one for her.  She really wanted a blue one since her favorite part is when Vexy turns good - aka blue.  So I started thinking how can I make Vexy.  I started looking around for smurf patterns for inspiration and then I found this Smurfette pattern, http://www.amigurumipatterns.net/shop/Anna-Vozika/Smurfette/ and it was perfect!  I tweaked it to look like Vexy by changing the colors and making a skirt and belt instead of a dress.
Hope you like it.
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The best doll I ever made on: April 11, 2013 10:32:18 AM
This is Mariam, the newest doll I made for my daughter.  I'm so excited about it.  I really think it's the best doll I ever made.  I modified the lily doll from http://www.sugarncream.com/data/pattern/pdf/Lily_SugarnCreamweb100_cr_lily.en_US.pdf to make it.  I changed the shape of the legs and decided to crochet the shoes and skirt as onto the doll instead of as separate pieces - I don't want to work so hard making then only to have my daughter lose them.  I also made her taller.  I have to thank Beth from By hook, by hand because I learned a lot by reading her tutorials.  I made the head able to move from side to side using her technique.  And I made fingers!!!  I'm totally excited about it - though I really hated making them!  I love the way it looks.  But I know I need more practice on it.  I used Sharon Ojala's technique to make them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGXbIgRLBz8 It was really difficult and frustrating but I love the way it looks.  I put curly hair on her because my daughter has curly hair and wants her dolls to have it.  It's also a pain, but worth it.  I just wish I hadn't run out of my blue yarn so that I could have made her hair more full - although it does make the head heavier and I don't know if I could have made her head moveable if I put in more curls.  It's obvious that I wasn't a crocheter before starting amigurumi when you look at the sweater.  I really don't know how to make one and used the pattern that was provided in the doll pattern.  I don't like the way it looks - but I think the doll needed that splash of color. 

Anyways I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Squiddy on: February 08, 2013 12:17:55 PM
My daughter is really into Team Umizoomi and she has fallen in love with the "bad guy" from one of the episodes called Squiddy. 

Took me awhile to figure out how to make him but it was so worth it seeing how she reacted to it.  Hope you like it.
