You may have noticed I’ve been a bit absent from the blog lately. I’ve been doing a little knitting (trying to finish the pattern for the Whale Shark iPhone cover which has been a long process) but mostly I have just been working a lot and haven’t had anything awesome to talk about… Until now!
Over the last week or two I’ve been crocheting up a storm. It was one of our best friend’s birthdays recently and this weekend he hosted a Batman costume party. For his present I made three little amigurumi softies of his favourite characters from the Dark Knight films.
I used a couple of LucyRavenscar’s amigurumi Star Wars characters for basic body patterns and added the Batman, Joker and Bane details myself. Each one took about a day to make and I’m pretty happy with the results.
I really enjoyed making these little guys and it was so good to get back to crochet again, after knitting for such a long time. Once my twisted claw of a hand returns to normal I might have a go at some other amigurumi projects.
What do you think? And what have you been working on lately? I love hearing about people’s crafty adventures!
P.S. Those are Katie’s hands in the pictures, not mine! She took these photos for me while I was at work.
