Free Pattern Friday: Mini Slime Amigurumi

SAM_2743More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

The slime is happy it’s Friday, are you?

I’ve never played a Dragon Quest game before because it’s not really my thing, but Dragon Quest Builders was awesome and had me glued to my switch for about 2 weeks. It was great for me because while I love Minecraft, I prefer to have clear goals that I need to accomplish. Can’t wait for the second one!

In honor of beating the game, I decided to crochet the derpiest looking creature ever. I called this one a mini slime because I just finished a larger version of a slime that I’m not sure what I’m going to do with just yet.

There should be a regular pattern coming sometime this weekend. It’s cute. :3

Final piece should measure about 3″ tall.

Free Pattern Friday: Onigiri Amigurumi

SAM_2709More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

Didn’t I just do this? This week went by super fast. Anywho, this was an exercise in working with different shapes. Let me know if you have any questions because it is a bit unusual. It was actually pretty fun trying to figure out how to make it work. I’ve never actually had onigiri but I definitely want to try it sometime.

Also, sorry for two white patterns back-to-back. If anyone has trouble seeing it properly let me know and I’ll tinker with the picture.

Final piece should measure about 2″ tall.

Free Pattern Friday: Bubble Seal Amigurumi

Happy Friday! Have a seal (thank you Pokemon for making me doubt how a four letter word is spelled).

A little guy that I whipped up quick. I’m not used to making small amigurumi so this was good practice for me. I called him a bubble seal because he’s the shape of a bubble. Truly I am the best at naming things. Also I updated the Free Pattern Friday banner a bit. No biggie.

Final piece should measure about 2″ tall.

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. 😛

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.
