Long overdue post! This is an amigurumi project I finished earlier this year. Here is El Fuerte from Street Fighter 4! This was a commission for my friend Adam, who plays Fuerte as his main character. Continue reading to see the progress of the project.
Hey everyone! February was a super busy month for me! I was kept occupied with birthdays (including mine!), Valentine’s, Chinese New Year and the Olympics! This is an Amigurumi crochet doll that I recently made for my boyfriend’s birthday present. It’s his favourite character from the game ‘Street Fighter IV’, Ryu! Unfortunately I forgot to take progress shots while making this guy but here are some shots of my planning and a sketch of how I pictured it to look!
Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I sure did! :) So much for posting more in December though. I certainly did not expect the month to be as busy as it was, I guess I forgot how hectic the holiday season can become!
As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I have been working on some little crafty projects! I decided to make Christmas presents for a few of my friends this year because I’ve always thought handmade gifts were more thoughtful than buying them. I taught myself how to crochet just to make these gifts. It wasn’t very hard to learn, although it was very time consuming at first. The crafts that I made are called Amigurumi and it’s the Japanese art of crocheting animals out of yarn!
This is the first amigurumi that I made, an adorable baby seal! I gave this one to my lovely friend Arlene.
I made this kitty cat for my friend Claire! I really love the whiskers. This was my second crochet project and it’s when I started to get the hang of things.
Sorry for the horrible quality photo, it was taken on my phone because I didn’t get a chance to take a proper picture of it before giving it to my friend Cass! She’s a fan of zombies and the both of us always hang out and kill zombies together! >:)
If you are interested in making crafts like these, here are the two books that I used to make them. The first is called ‘Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts!: Amigurumi’ and there some very adorable animals in there. The second is ‘Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More!’ which I referenced/altered to make the zombie.
Another extremely helpful resource I used is the website ‘Hooks and Needles‘. It was really good in explaining certain crochet methods to a newbie like me! Also, I bought all of my yarn/eyes from Michaels craft store and I found some super cheap crochet needles from a dollar store. Good luck if you plan on trying this!
