2  Harry Potter Amigurumi: Hagrid's Pets Norbert, Buckbeak & Fluffy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by effendog on: July 11, 2007 10:52:54 PM
EDIT: I'm adding more pictures of the individual animals.
the final pet: Norbert

I like his jaunty cocked-to-the-side head.

I'm so proud of the wings! It was my first time using felt, and I LOVE IT! It was also my first time using the buttonhole stitch and I LOVE IT!

Fingers + Wings!


And now the family:

Comments / criticisms appreciated.

3  Hagrid's pets Part 2 (img heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by effendog on: July 03, 2007 07:38:34 PM
EDIT: Updated pictues (aka better pictures)
Here's the second installment of Hagrid's pets: Buckbeak

I'm so proud of the back legs on this guy!

It took me nine and a half years to figure out how to do the head (I never exaggerate).

4  amigurumi wings / feathers? (2 imgs) in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by effendog on: July 02, 2007 12:48:26 PM
I need to make a hippogrif for a Harry Potter art show, and I need some help with the wings. I bought some yarn that I think I can crochet w/ the main color of the body to make it look more feathery, but I would certainly like some input.

First of all, here's the yarn (with a very curious and confused dog in the background):

And here the yarn crocheted with the main color:

Does it look feathery at all? Or just weird and spotty. Any should I go for an all white accent fluffy yarn, instead of the brown / black multi?

5  Hagrid's Pets from Harry Potter (img heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by effendog on: July 02, 2007 12:26:43 PM
My friend is putting on a Harry Potter Fan Art show in a few weeks where there will fan art of all sorts, a screening of Brad Neely's "WIZARD PEOPLE, DEAR READER" and tasty wizard snacks.

When I first found out about it, I said to myself (in an Eeyore-esk voice) "Hmph. I love Harry Potter and would love to participate, but I'm not artistic. Ho-hum". Then my friend asked me if I wanted to contribute anything, and a lightbulb went off in my head. "Hello, amigurumi Harry Potter characters?!".

I didn't want to do the normal main characters, so I decided (with the help of my roomate) to make some of Hagrid's pets.

The first one I have done is Fluffy, the 3-headed dog:

I personally think his body is a little too large. But then again, I'm guessing a 3-headed dog would need to have some extra organs inside of the chest cavity (like extra sets of lungs and whatnot), so I suppose it works. (Even if it didn't work, I'm NOT about to tear this damn thing apart).  Wink

I'm working on Buckbeak / Witherwings right now, and the last one I want to get done is Norbert. You know they'll get posted here when I'm done with them.

6  amigurumi horse leg (realistic, or close to it) in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by effendog on: June 28, 2007 10:23:09 PM
I'm participating in a Harry Potter Fan Art show in Philly in a few weeks, and I got the idea from my roomate to make crocheted creatures from the movie. I think I want to start with Buckbeak / Witherwings. Then maybe Fluffy. But first, I need to know how to make a somewhat realistic-looking hind-leg for a horse. I can't seem to find any patterns online. I could just resort to the old stand-by of "try stuff until something works". But, before I start, I thought I'd check with you crafty folks to see if you had any suggestions for me. Thanks!

So I made up a pattern for a horse leg, and I'm damn proud of it.

Jointed goodness!

I've got a pattern for both a left leg and a right leg (The top of it flares up where you need to attach it to the body, and if I made the same pattern for both, it wouldn't sit right). If anyone is interested in the pattern, let me know.

7  my first applique project! in Needlework: Completed Projects by effendog on: March 18, 2007 07:56:41 PM
My sister made me a silk-screened t-shirt for xmas. I loved the design, but hated the t-shirt (maybe if I were more rectangular in shape it would have looked better on me). So I cut the shirt and appliqued the designs onto one of my hoodies.

Image on the lower back:

Check out that double chin!

Close-up of the stitching.

Appliquing t-shirts was a lot easier than I thought; because the fabric is so stretchy, I didn't have to worry about making little snips on the curve of the leaf.

8  items made on a homemade screen. in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by effendog on: March 18, 2007 07:48:02 PM
(ok, so my sister made these, not me. But she ain't so internet-savvy, and I think she'll appreciate that I'm showing off her work)

My sister made a screen from an old embroidery hoop and some old silk curtains she found at the thrift store. She cut the stencil out of paper, and screen me a t-shirt for xmas. Unfortunately, the t-shirt fit horribly (Maybe if I were a rectangle, it would have fit nicely). So I cut them out and appliqued them to a hoodie.

Check out that double chin!

One of these days I'll get her to show me how to do this. Until then, I'll wear her creations with pride.

9  amigurumi octipodes in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by effendog on: March 07, 2007 07:41:18 PM
This is my first project that I'm posting on here. I bought the pattern for this octopus on etsy (http://www.NeedleNoodles.etsy.com).

This guy's actually a septapus because I ran out of blue yarn for his tentacles. Maybe he lost a tentacle during a scuffle in the briny deep.
