My latest obsession

Mario & Luigi Crocheted Sackboys
YARN, oh how I love it and can't get enough!! I taught myself to crochet via youtube tutorials in October 2010 in order to make my son a sackboy for Christmas and since then I've made countless dolls & toys for my family and friends. Pictured above is the Mario and Luigi sackboys that I made for my brother. They turned out great if I do say so myself!!

While looking for a free sackboy pattern I stumbled across the Golden Jelly Bean on youtube. This youtube find was golden indeed!! Bunches of awesome step by step tutorials to make gaming characters. Including Mario!

Despicable Me Minions


  The crocheted Minion from Despicable Me! I used the pattern by WolfDreamer and made some adjustments of my own, like the legs, hands and faces. Once you get the main pattern the possibilities are endless: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2010/07/despicable-minion.html     


Totoro Family

My Neighbor Totoro!! What a fantastic movie and what a great bunch of characters to make. I will post the patterns and how I made the big guy soon... for now start with this pattern by Heavens_Hellcat

Totoro Including the Soot Sprite
                                                                                                                                              

OK!!! That's it for today. I'll be back once I write up a couple patterns.
