Ballerina

This one was an order placed by an expectant mom who wanted a little ballerina for her baby. It was a nice order to get, because I was just crocheting in the shop when she showed me a picture and asked “Hey, can you make this?” And I said yes!

I really liked the long-arm long-leg style of amigurumi dolls, and I think it’s definitely something I’ll be coming back to again.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Giant Elephant!

One of my favorite customers placed another order!

I was super pleased with how this one came out; I don’t often make things for myself, but I fell in love with this elephant. I might make one for my own kids someday when I have them!

Also, tea time!

Puppy Dog Pals

Another one that was impossible to make without the theme running through my head!

I got an order for just one of the puppies, but decided to make them both so I could write a pattern for them (and have them for a picture.)

But then I got another order for the other one, so it all worked out!

You can check out the pattern here.

Pillows!

I’ve gotten a couple of pillow orders lately! The first is a style that I’ve made before, but in the Alabama colors, since it’s an elephant:

The same customer ordered a Longhorn pillow to use as a gift. I’m pretty pleased with how this one came out! It was pretty touchy for a while as I was making it, and I wasn’t sure if it would come out looking good. But it did!

Lately, I got an order from a woman whose cat died recently. She showed me a picture of a black cat with stark orange eyes and asked me to make a pillow in resemblance to him. This one was tricky because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to shape him. I started off with a more 3D head before realizing it looked awkward in pillow-form. I also made the body square, which was more realistic, but it just didn’t look good. So I unraveled it all and decided to go for a bulkier design, which I  think came out cute! And she ended up loving it, too.

Bonus: a family member’s rabbit fell sick, so I asked if there was anything I could make for her. But my family member has two rabbits, so when he asked for a blanket, I decided to make one for both of them. Couldn’t leave one left out! You can’t read the writing too well on the black-and-white, but it says “Bear,” the bunny’s name.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Five Foot Alligator

I feel like there’s some supremely catchy song-themed pun that I am severely missing right now, but I can’t think of it! Therefore: the title of this post is “five foot alligator,” which is exactly what I crocheted.

This one was for a young boy that has many of my crocheted amigurumi (and a little of my heart). He wanted an alligator “as big as Nana!” which I find just adorable. Luckily, his Nana and I are the same size, so it was easy to measure.

It was NOT so easy to crochet! But very worth it in the end. I love this photo I have of it sitting in the car on the way to be delivered.  I almost buckled him in!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

(P.S. I figured it out! It should have been “Mashed potato! Five-Foot Allogato!”)

Pink Panther

This is one I never thought I’d do! Pink Panther is one of those cool retro characters that I was pretty excited about. He took me way longer to make than he should have because I had reservations about his nose, but overall, he came out ok!

The one problem with crocheting him, though, was that I could NOT stop humming his theme! So catchy! So Saxophoney! Forever in my head.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Call of Duty

A friend of mine plays a lot of CoD, but she knows me enough that when I asked for a picture of their character, she KNEW what I was about to do with it.

I made the goggles, too! But I think she’s more cute without them.

Happy Friday, Everyone!
