Indiana Jones is the best character in the world!  By the way, were you on a Harrison Ford kick?  Because he rocked in Star Wars too!

Well, I am obsessed with Star Wars, so I had to do Han Solo first.  My sister bugged me so much about Indy that I had to make him sooner than I was planning--but now I want to make Rick Deckard from Blade Runner, so maybe I am on a Harrison Ford kick!

Wow those look great and hard to make, I know if it tried it would look like Frankenstein by the time i was done

Ha ha, I was actually thinking last night about making Dracula--maybe I could have a monster set ready by Halloween. 

Thanks for the compliments everyone!  You guys are great.

Can I *buy* an Indiana Jones?  Seriously?  How long did it take you to make that?  That's incredible and I know someone whose world would be rocked by it...  And, well, I am in the business of rocking worlds.  Cheesy

Also-- I adore your star wars amigurumi babies... but no love for Lando?

Indy took a long time--I was seriously so worried about the hat that I didn't want to start it for a long time.  And then we had a problem with the muslin/no muslin undershirt.  Overall, we spent probably 4-5 hours planning and making, although we could do it quicker a second time.

And I promise--Lando is coming!  I bought the felt and yarn for him and everything--I found the perfect blue.  I'm just worried about his hair--I'm not sure I will be able to make it look like it is supposed to.  It's really really short.  If anyone has any suggestions on how to make his hair, I would love you forever!

Hey everyone!  I know you're probably pretty tired of seeing these little guys, but I can't stop making them!  It's addicting.  Anyway, I just wanted to show you guys what we've been doing.

You can see his whip, his bag, the magic stones, the holy grail, and the little golden idol in this pic.  And of course his hat, which I thought was going to be really hard, but it turned out to be pretty easy.

My sister is making a tiny muslin shirt for him, but I couldn't wait for her to finish with it and I made a felt one instead.  I think muslin will look better, though.  The felt wasn't giving the open, flapping feeling that I want--although I do think what we ended up with is pretty cute.  My boyfriend actually made all of the sculpey pieces before I had even finished making Indy!

Okay, and here's more Star Wars:

Finally, Luke!

But wait!

His hand comes off!  He he, I thought that was so cool.  I pretty much giggled about it to myself for a whole day.  It's a magnet.  And of course, his awesome lightsaber is made, once again, by the boy.

And here's a custom order we did:

It's Boushh, the bounty hunter that Leia dresses up as when she goes to rescue Han from Jabba the Hutt.  Her helmet is removable too!  And more magnets (I love putting magnets in stuff): the thermal detonator can magnetically attach to her hand.  So cool!

She was pretty complicated, but I think she turned out great.

Let me know what you guys think!

I can't believe how beautiful that is!  And so detailed too.  Those little tiny flowers are so amazing, I can't believe you had the patience for that!  Your friend is very very lucky.

That is ADORABLE!  Thanks for the closeups, they are too cute for words.  I like how everything looks like it's hand-drawn.  Again, amazing job!

Cuuuute!  Calvin and Hobbes!  Is it a lap quilt? I can't see how big it is.  Any chance of getting a bigger picture of the comic part?  It looks super adorable!

What sort of yarn did you use to make them?  Your stitches are so even and nice. 

I used just regular yarn I find at Hobby Lobby--usually Lion Brand Wool for the body and then Vanna White's beige yarn for the head.  Her acrylic yarn is hard to work with sometimes!  I'm glad it looks okay though.  Grin

YESSS!!! love these! gandalf is sitting proudly next to my monitor!  Grin

Yay!  I love Gandalf.  I'm glad you like him!

Those are fantastically adorable. Absolutely incredible. Amazing. And I ran out of adjectives.

But seriously, I love them. And I'm not even a big Star Wars fan anymore.

(I used to be, but the "first three" ruined it for me)

I especially love Vader. Fantastic job!

"First three"?  What are these "first three" you speak of?  I only know about Episode 4, 5, 6, that's all that there are AND EVER WILL BE.   Wink

Thanks everyone!

Seeing these I am now detedrmined to learn to crochet. My sister and I love LOTR and giving her one as a toy would be the greatest gift ever!!
thanks for sharing Cheesy

You should learn, it's easier than it looks.  Well, amigurumi is, anyway, there are tons of great tutorials on this board, too.  I think the secret to making the characters is finding the right yarn color!
