Totoro! :)

For any of you that don't know who Totoro is it's from a Japanese anime movie called My Neighbor Totoro. It's really cute you can check some of it out here.
Blue Totoro!
White Totoro!
Sorry no picture I haven't had a chance to make them yet.
I've been thinking that it might not be a good idea for me to use the pictures off of other peoples sites. So from now on I will only be posting projects using my pictures which might mean that I am a little slower in posting new projects. Sorry. :(

Finished my Girl Moogle Maggie.

I finally finished my girl Moogle who I call Maggie a couple of days ago. When I started making her it was with the intent of finding mistakes in my first moogle's pattern. After I got started I realized that I should've taken pictures of how it was being constructed so I took some pictures of how I constructed her. But.... Here's my dilema. I don't know whether I should post the pattern of both of them or just of the first moogle that I made which if I do that then I need to make another one because I don't want to have pictures of a project that doesn't match the colors. Hmmm what to do. ?
While I'm deciding I have already started on another project. Which I hope to have up by next week.

Moogle pattern is going to take a little longer.

While I was working on Kerochan I realized that I made some mistakes in my crocheting while I was working on my moogle pattern so I will be reworking the pattern to correct them before I type it up and list it on Etsy. Will keep you posted.

Cardcaptors Kerochan!

Cardcaptors is such a cute show. I used to watch it all the time when it was on TV. I just love her battle costumes and Kerochan is so cute!
I found a pattern to make Kerochan here-
Thank you very much ournew on Craftster for posting it!
I used her pattern for the head and wings and then made up the rest of the body myself.
He was made for my daughter who is a huge Cardcaptors fan! Although I really like it too so might have to make another one then my moogle will have a friend. He he.
Unfortunately I was a little off on stitching the mouth but my daughter is still very happy!
This picture was where I got the idea to make his body bigger and since I basically copied her idea wanted to give credit to her. If you click on the picture it will take you to the page that I found it on.
I couldn't find a pattern or anything for how she did the body and so this is what I came up with. I'm posting it here in case anyone else would like to copy this idea too.

Finished my Moogle Doll Pattern!

Lulu's Moogle Doll

After forgoing many hours of sleep and feeling like I was on the verge of carpal tunnel from repeated ripping out and redoing, I finally finished my very first amigurumi pattern and it's Lulu's moogle doll from Final Fantasy 10! Yea!
I am thinking about typing it up into a pdf. file and offering it on Etsy if anyone is interested.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think and if you'd be interested in the pattern. Thanks! :)
