And now comes the hard part.

This is what I have so far.

The boots where the most fun part. You know, quick result and not too complicated. But now comes the rest of this crochet Starfox, and that will be a lot tougher! It all has to do with the proportions. Boy, I’m not even certain what size the head should be. I think I’m going to start with the body and jacket. That way I can adjust the head to the body.Β  The head probably will become moveable like Link’s, unless it’s to hard for a fox-shaped head.

I’ll keep you posted!

 

A first sketch

"starfox amigurumi sketch"

This is how I picture my crochet Starfox. I hope he’ll turn out pretty similar to this sketch. I think my Starfox doll should have about these proportions. When I picture him, he has big, removable boots. I think I’m going to make his body and legs in one piece, with a sewed on crochet jacket and gear. I’m not really going to make his green outfit, but’ll make the body and legs in green. For the tail opening I have to find a solution. His backpack’s a must too. Crochet Starfox needs to be able to stand on himself. Maybe I’ll make a moveable head like Link, not sure yet.

It’s going to take some time, making this doll and I’m especially looking forward to the end result. Crocheting it, isn’t really the most fun part for me. I really get pissed of sometimes after taking a piece apart for the hundredth time, but in the end I’m very happy.

You know, I make my own projects, illustrations or crochet dolls, because I see in my head an awesome end result. Something that needs to be made. It makes me enthusiastic and fanatic. Sometimes what I want to make can be very complicated and delicate, but that won’t stop me, I’m a perfectionist and will go on till I get the right result. The downside of that is, that it makes me kinda cranky when it doesn’t go the way I want to. Not very good, I’ll need to ‘chill down’ when something goes wrong. The great and even greater side is, that I create things that make me happy and proud. The feeling of a beautiful finished amigurumi or painting is worth everything to me!

 

What will come

An update about what’s coming:

"preparations for  Starfox amigurumi"

A Starfox, Fox McCloud amigurumi! I already bought yarn for the project, beautiful Letit Lopi, Icelandic wool, in a great store in Zwolle, Astrid’s wol.Β  I love the beautiful warm colours the Lopi yarn comes in. After that I’m going to make a crochet Valais black nose sheep.

"Sketch for crochet valais blacknose sheep"

I got the idea last year when we where in Switzerland. They’re so cute and I needed to make a crochet version of one. This yarn also comes from that shop in Zwolle.

I also want to make a red panda amigurumi. But first I’m making these two, of course after I’ve finished the little bear. And for all these projects, I will post the patterns here!

I’ve got a lot to do!
