Hi everyone! Sorry for the long delay between posts – I was in Nova Scotia in September (expect lots of Groot photos from that trip at some point), and October… well honestly I don’t really have an excuse, other than the fact that I was trying to get a bunch of projects done and just haven’t gotten around to the blog. That’s changing today – I’m spending the day getting photos of all my dolls (from the old to the new) posted into our Gallery so they are all archived and easy to find. And while I do that, I figured I might as well make each page into a new post as well (with extra comments/notes and some bonus silly pictures that I didn’t include in the gallery).
First up – Marvel!
chronological from older to newer. The older ones are more likely to be
made from someone else’s pattern (I’ve included links/credit for all of
those ones), or to be lopsided. Or both.
FanExpo 2014 dolls – these were all for sale at our FanExpo Vancouver booth in 2014
FanExpo 2015 dolls – these were all for sale at our FanExpo Vancouver booth in 2015
America Minion – I decided partway through the con that I couldn’t bear
to sell him because he’s too cute, so I stuck a sold sign on him and
kept him. 😉
America – a definite improvement over the first couple… this little
guy didn’t sell and I think I’ll just keep him for myself now, I’ve
become attached to him. 😉
Bucky / The Winter Soldier
Groot! I made 2 large Groots that were wired and stuck into real pots,
and 5 small Groots that are just cuddly and have nothing pointy or hard.
The first large Groot was made using a dark brown yarn because that’s
what I had in the house, but I didn’t really like how it turned out so I
made the rest with a light brown which I think looks better.
made 4 of the small Groots to start with, and had sold 3 of them by the
end of the first day… so I spent all of day 2 at the booth
frantically making one more (all 5 were gone by Sunday). Groot was super
Thor Minion – birthday present for another friend
Thor Minion and Captain America Minion!
My first Groot, made from this pattern at Smartapple Creations.
It was maybe 2 weeks after the movie came out, and my friend’s birthday
was coming up – and she LOVED Groot. So I googled ‘crochet Groot’ out
of curiousity, thinking no way had someone already made a doll never
mind a pattern… and this popped up. Yay! My video of her opening the
doll and screaming is one of my favourite things. 😉
this isn’t really a crochet doll but I think he’s cute… I got a
stuffed moose given to me by some supplier at work (this is what happens
when your job is selling tours in Canada!) and for whatever reason I
decided to A. name him Bucky, and B. crochet him a little Winter Soldier
arm and give him a mask. He lives in my desk drawer at work and makes
me happy. Bucky Moose!!
That’s it for now, but stay tuned! I have a few nifty Avengers-related projects coming soon…
