Princess Peach Amigurumi

So after making those Mario Mushrooms and sending them out, my friend's daughter requested a Princess Peach. I only found a couple patterns online but nothing that I really liked since I wanted something a bit more simple. So decided to try it out using a different pattern.

First I tried using the Kokeshi Dolls pattern to make the Peach doll. I figured something a little different. It turned out okay, but not exactly what I was looking for. So that little princess went to my niece who seemed to love it.
I then took that same pattern and fiddled with it a bit and added arms. I even made the arms movable which I thought was pretty neat. I sent off the Princess Peach and I'm hoping she likes it. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Both dolls I used the Caron Super Soft since it has so many bright colors.

Cthulhu and other Amigurumi

So decided to try out some Amigurumi since I always think they are so cute.
All of these are from Patterns and I'll put the links on the bottom of this post.

Cthulhu - The first one was the big green one which I used some Red Heart Supersaver. I showed it to some friends and a couple requested their own so I made another green and a purple one. Those were made with the Caron Supersoft which I thought turned out much cuter since they ended up being much smaller than the first one.

Mario Mushrooms - I made the mini one and then a friend asked if she could have it. So I made her 2 more to go along with it. All done with Red Heart Supersaver yarn.

Striped Turtles - I made the big one first and gave that to my nephew but they were so cute I had to make more. I made them a little smaller than the pattern said and used Red Heart on both of the smaller ones.

Octopus - He was a nice and easy guy to make. I haven't given him away yet, but he's pretty darn cute. Red heart yarn again!

Thank you to everyone that posted free patterns!

Hat 60!

Hat 60 was made using the Lion Brand Easy Sideways hat pattern (need to sign in) with a little change on the end of the pattern. Instead of weaving it together I made a cinch tie on the top and attached a couple of pom poms. It can be worn as both a hat and a cowl and I've seen similar patterns online before. I would like to do this type again but next time using the Convertible Hat pattern. Yarn used was Michael's Loops & Threads in Neopolitan.
