21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: My Amigurumi Menagerie--enter if you dare! NEW 1/3--SHAAAARK!!! on: January 04, 2007 06:29:41 AM
Here's the dolphin I started from.


I modified the top & side fins to make them pointier and 'sharkier' looking, and omitted the bottle nose (I think I started about row 4 or 5 on both body halves). Also, instead of working the tail as the last row of the body halves, I worked it separately and attached it after, since dolphins tails are horizontal but sharks go vertical.

The mouth is red felt and I stitched the teeth in with white yarn.

Just Simply Soft, cheap and easy to use.

LOL Angry Angel! I just noticed your livejournal. (waves to another hellcat)

Thanx yall! (umheried, I love your Angel avvy too...yum.)

New arrival! Short story of his creation: at work they started a 'motivation' program called Fish. The idea is if you do a good job, anybody else can give you a Fish card to wear with your name badge. Pretty straightforward, right? Except NOT. The person who runs the program is an egotistical jerk brownnosing the big bosses, and has pitched a fit at least 2 times wanting to take back cards someone other than she gave out. Soo, a friend of mine made up an 'alternative' card with a shark on it. A bunch of us wore those & had a good laugh, till the administration saw them & TOOK THEM UP. I mean it. Like we are kindergarteners. (insert ARGH here)

Well, before, it was a joke. Now, it's principle. Shark stuff is springing up all over. Shark key rings, pens, can cozies, etc. And for the friend who started the whole thing...a semi-amigurumi shark, made by me, adapted from a dolphin I found online.

Subversive crochet is a beautiful thing.  Cheesy

Thanx yall!  Grin

(why do I have such a hard time getting search on this site? I searched for frogs & toads & did not get that adorable winged thing!)

Ok, at the risk of sounding really stupid, I dont get the 'fold in half' part. Maybe if I am actually holding the work in my hands I will? Help?

Yes, me again, begging for pattern aid. There is a running joke on another board I belong to regarding a toad (well, a demon toad god  Cheesy ) And I really want to make one. Any suggestions for a toad (heck, I'll take a frog, I can adapt) that I could add wings and talons to? (hehe)

Rasta anteater!  Cheesy Excellent!

I agree he needs the hat, and maybe even something to smoke.

(who said that? hehe)

(The perps deserve to be strung up by their toes with yarn Smiley )
Funny, I was thinking along similar lines, but it wasn't by the toes...
I second that.
