I've been meaning to post this for a couple of days now... I'm still fairly new to craftster (as far as actively participating goes, at least!) and I keep forgetting I can share things here!

Here's the amigurumi I crocheted of Mabel Pines from the Disney Channel cartoon "Gravity Falls." It's one of my favorite shows, and she's my favorite character.

This was an experiment for me, to attempt to produce an amigurumi that looked as close to the character's in-show design as possible. I had a reference picture open at all times to compare the work with. I'm really happy with how she turned out- I think she ended up looking a great deal like her in-show appearance, so I'm calling it a success!

The back of her hair:

She's about 8 1/2" tall, and has poseable legs and arms. Her clothes are removable, so I can make more Mabel Sweaters when I decide to. Her face has embroidered details.

My hope is to eventually make Dipper as well, but it may be a while, as I ran out of my perfect yarn for skin tones and can't find it in stores anymore. I'm still trying to decide whether to break down and order it online or to just find an alternative.

Critique/criticism is welcome! Let me know what you think!

Sorry, I don't know the character, so I can't tell if she resembles it, but it's cute either way.
