batgurl88: (Merlin - Two of a kind)
[personal profile] batgurl88

Okay, so about a year and a half ago, I saw a great idea for knitting these really cute Arthur and Merlin mice, and quickly taught myself how to knit so I could have a set of my own (and make a few for my friends). They turned out pretty adorable, and I've been knitting up a storm ever since.


And then, about a month ago, I decided I wanted to learn crocheting (lol Can you tell unemployment is getting to me?). I found a cute pattern online to use as a starting point, and modified it to fit some characters from Glee this time.

The result: Kurt and Blaine dolls!

Preview:

Blaine was the first attempt, and it being my first try at crocheting, he came out a little disproportioned. One of his legs had to be refashioned. His jacket also drove me crazy. I didn't have a pattern for the tie, so I had to improvise, and stitched the contrasting colour over top of it.

Kurt, on the other hand, is a bit closer to what the pattern intended (meaning he's a bit bigger, but more in-proportion than Blaine). His outfit is modeled after one of my favourites of his, from 2x06 Never Been Kissed. His hairstyle also started out a bit more like Blaine's, before I realised that Kurt often wore the swept-back Big Hair in S2. So, I restitched it, and it added to his height considerably.

Size-wise, they're each a little less than 14" tall.

Blaine






Kurt
 






Currently, I'm trying to decide if I should make another Kurt one with his Born This Way outfit (complete with that oddly attractive plaid coat, for strategic re-enactment purposes). If I can figure out how to crochet plaid on such a small pattern, we'll see how it goes.

Those are really cute. I crochet - but I make a lot scarves. I've only done one amigurumi in my life, and it was Pavarotti. :) I can follow a pattern, but these are just amazing.

Oh these are just so adorable!!! I've been looking for a new project to do and you just inspired me! I'm gonna look at the pattern next, but would you mind sharing your tips when you did the costumes? Also, are the patterns from the ravelry site worth purchasing?
p.s. unemployment also got me into crocheting, but nothing hurts if it's to produce art like this! esp ones so cute like yours! :D
