Pattern: Bat Amigurumi

A 3″ tall amigurumi of a bat.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

So this was supposed to be up last week but my computer decided to crash while I was editing the pictures and I was too frustrated to work on it for a bit. I’ve discovered that for some reason if I leave my camera’s SD card inserted and my computer falls asleep, when it wakes up I’ll be greeted with a lovely blue screen. :[

Anyway, this was another fun experiment, playing with different shapes and stuff. This little guy works up quick so you should be able to get it done before Halloween! Like with the newest Freezer Bunny amigurumi, the pattern can look confusing but just go slow and read carefully and it should be good. Of course, I’m always happy to help with any questions!

Got a pretty cute pattern for Free Pattern Friday this week. It may or may not be super fuzzy.

Free Pattern Friday: Freezer Bunny Amigurumi

fbunnyAll

A 5″ tall amigurumi of the Freezer Bunny from The Sims games.

Tooootally haven’t made this guy before, and certainly not twice. Nope, not me. But this is the last one ever I promise

Lately I’ve been playing more with shapes and working limbs and bodies in one piece, which isn’t too hard to do, but it’s a huge pain to write out what you’re doing. I tried to be clear but I also didn’t want to write a novel, so let me know if there’s any questions. Just to double check I did go and follow the pattern to make a test piece and I got it to come out, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too bad.

And because I love comparing old crap to new crap, here’s all three Freezer Bunnys:

fbunnyCompare
I used the same color light pink in all three pieces. Welcome to bad lighting meets bad photoshopping.

Well that was a horrifying trip down memory lane. You can find the patterns for the first two on my old blog, but why would you want to? No link because I’m pretending it doesn’t exist.

I’ve also finally started using chain one, turn (c1t) in my patterns. Normally I don’t chain one when turning. I have no real reason why. I have no real reason to start chaining one. But I guess it’s happening so whatever.

Candy corn guy probably coming out next FPF. Or maybe a bat. Whichever one I like the least. 😛

Pattern: Pumpkaboo Amigurumi

A 6″ tall amigurumi of the Pokemon Pumpkaboo.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Welp, it’s time to jump on the Halloween train and pump out a bunch of spooky scary patterns. I’ve never really done holiday-themed items but I’m totally selling out this year. I’ve got a candy-corn pattern lined up for Free Pattern Friday, and I’m currently working on a bat. Hooray for being boring!

I love Pumpkaboo’s design but I’ve never really used one in-game because I can’t stand Gen 6 for some reason. Plus it’s evolution isn’t nearly as cute. :[

I do have a couple non-holiday related patterns that are almost done so they should go up sometime soon. They’re both things I’ve already done but I completely overhauled the patterns. I know I do too much fixing of old stuff instead of new ones, but the holiday shenanigans should remedy that.

Free Pattern Friday: Bumblebee Amigurumi

beeAll

Iiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday. Here’s a pattern of a 3″ tall bumblebee.

Little piece of advice: don’t buy Stardew Valley unless you want to lose a month of your life. Not that that happened to me or anything, no siree.

I don’t have much to say about this, just kinda practicing embroidering eyes and stuff.

Pattern: Chubbachu Amigurumi

A 5″ tall amigurumi of a chubby Pikachu.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Fat Pikachu is best Pikachu.

Making this was a new experience for me. I don’t tend to go beyond 48 stitches around when doing amigurumi because I prefer them small, but I decided I would try something different. I planned how big I wanted it, made a little schematic, and stuck to it. I do like how it turned out, and planning out my amigurumi in advance instead of just winging it made my life a hell of a lot easier. Definitely going to stick to that.

I also made new graphics for my Etsy shop and this is the first  thing to make use of them. Now I just have to take pictures of everything again so it matches the new style. D:
Perfectionism is a disease.

Get the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy.

Free Pattern Friday: Poké Ball Amigurumi

pokeAll

A 2.5″ amigurumi of a Poké Ball.

I have pretty much nothing to say about this other than I could’ve sworn that I uploaded a Poké Ball pattern years ago (oh my god I’ve been doing this for years), but apparently not. My plan for this is to make all of the balls and sell the patterns in one big set, but knowing me the odds of that happening are practically zero.

One day I’ll upload something that isn’t FPF. I spent all day yesterday working on graphics for my Etsy shop and now my obsessive perfectionism wants me to retake pictures of everything. So I’m dealing with that.

Free Pattern Friday: Ice Cream Monster Amigurumi

iceAll
A 4″ tall amigurumi of an ice cream monster dude.

What is this, the third FPF in a row? It’s almost like I’m not lazy.

If you follow me on my rarely-used Tumblr you may have seen something like this a while ago. I came up with an idea for a silly little creature (maybe a form of octopus?) that looks like ice cream and wears a cone as a hat. I made like 5 different flavors, but then came the Great Scrappening and many yarn lives were lost. This one was whipped up earlier today (yay procrastination).
