Hahaha... too many projects!

I've been working on the mushroom, the little nurse and a Dora for my little girl, all along at the same time...

 This is what happens when you are working on so many projects at the same time:
This is mushroom's top with nurse's legs and Dora's eyes... but to me it looks just like the green m&m!

So maybe later on I'll do a yellow m&m.

I have finished the mushroom "body", I'm just missing the spots and face but those are not crocheted, the nurse is 70% done and Dora is on process too.
Also I'll be posting mushroom's pattern soon, I just have to translate my notes to something understandable...  see you soon...

Happy crocheting!

Keroppi is ready

I just came by to show you how keroppi turned out, my friend seemed happy with it. Personally, I think the eyes turned out too big but she said she liked them like that.

I have already started the crazy mushroom, I'm in the middle of discovering what I did before, and learning how to make invisible decreases to make a neater work... so I saw this video: invisible decrease It's really easy, I had heard about it but I had never taken the time to learn. Give it a try, now I see it is really worth it!

Bye for now...

Busy as a bee...

I'm back! This days I am crocheting a keroppi frog like this:

I´m following this pattern: Stitch love: Keroppi amigurumi pattern

I'm also crochetting a little nurse doll, I´ll post about it later on, when I´m finished.

I wanted to show you  this Mario World Mushroom I made the past few days:

Now I´ve been asked to make another one like this but with different spots and crazy eyes.

I didn't write down the pattern... now I wish I had...

Something to share: have you ever tried finger knitting? I´ts very easy and quick!

Ok see you soon...

Gir and Sackboy

Here are some projects I've been working on and I wanted to show you...


This is the original Gir picture on which I was inspired:


I made him movable legs, I had never made legs like that before but I couldnt decide if I wanted him sit or stand up. I made them by placing a button inside each leg and a cord that goes inside the body, through the other leg. The buttons have the function to keep the cord from inside the legs like this:

I think it looks very much like it, although the original Sackboy is knitted, I made mine using the reverse side as the front to have vertical lines instead of horizontal, like regular amigurumis.

Hope you like them!

Happy Crocheting!
