Star Wars C3PO and Chewbacca (aka Chewie) amigurumi
Hi Everyone!

It's been a long time since I've logged into livejournal and visited this lovely community. Life's been super busy for me, but it's always so nice to be able to see everyone's awesome yarn creations still!!

After not crocheting anything in a long while, I made these Star Wars C3PO and Chewie amigurumis as birthday gifts to my Star Wars fanatic brother/web designer of my blog. Like always, he somehow caught sight of my Chewie work in progress and spoiled his own birthday surprise, just like how he spoiled his first R2D2 amigurumi surprise. It's like he has Star Wars amigurumi antennae or something...odd feature.


Finally, R2D2 has friends!! After six years....poor thing hahaha. Please check out the full story at my blog:

Thanks for looking! :D

Need Help With a Ram's Horn Pattern
default, reedus
Hey guys! I need help.

I've been trying to come up with my own pattern for a ram's horn, and I was really successful at making one (which would be the left horn). The part I need help with, is that I'm trying to reverse it for the other side, so they can look symmetrical once I sew them on, and I'm having problems with making the curve going the right way. Click Here for an image of the horn, plus the patternCollapse )

Some Amis I've done over the past few months

Hi community! I don't usually share as much on here as I use to but I felt like showing some of these off to other hookers out there who would be interested. A lot of them I don't really use patterns anymore, and kind of just free form them.

I've been enjoying making things with all my scrap yarn and getting a chance to use some of the projects I started and then never finished.

Dean Winchester and Castiel dolls from Supernatural!
Flynn/CLU: Halves
Finished these guys up for a friend over on Tumblr! Dean's amulet is cast in resin, and Castiel's wings are attached to heavy snaps, so they can be removed if desired. The hair is brushed yarn.

Other images below the cut, 'cause they're big.

Yarn Colour and Felt Question
Hey guys!

So I've been toying with the idea of crocheting some dolls based on some anime characters, and I wanted to ask a couple questions:

1. I mostly use Red Heart Super Saver. Would anyone happen to know what would be a good colour for skin tone? Should I go with a very light pink? Or something that's more on the tanned side (like buff)? Or is there another colour out there that's perfect for skin tone?

2. For these dolls, I was thinking on using felt for the eyes, mouths, and possibly some symbols that'll be on them as well - it's just easier than to actually try to crochet them, I think, and I suck at embroidery ;) Do you have any advice about using felt for amigurumi crocheted things? Is there a certain type of felt to get, and which ones to avoid? Is it Ok to hot glue gun the felt pieces onto the doll? Or should I sew it on?
