Zelda – Super Smash Saturday 12

Its Princess Zelda this week! I know this is a dual character (also Sheik), but I’m thinking I might make Sheik instead of Toon Link when the time comes. There were a ton of details for Zelda’s dress, which I did my best to simplify and include. The next character is Pit! This event is […]

Safety Eyes and Alternatives

When I first started crochet, I couldn’t help but feel like my amigurumi was missing something. They felt somehow incomplete, and as I continued I realized it was the eyes. I had been using felt, which I do still use occasionally, but at the time it wasn’t giving my work the finished look I wanted […]

Luigi – Super Smash Saturday 10

Phew, another week down! This week its Luigi, and I used the same pattern I made for Mario. Once again, felt is awesome for small details and complex shapes, like the little yellow buttons for Luigi’s overalls, or his mustache! The next character is Diddy Kong! This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone […]

Mr. Game and Watch – Super Smash Saturday 09

Marth – Super Smash Saturday 08

Two months of Super Smash Saturday completed! Today’s character is Marth. I love the Fire Emblem games, so I had a lot of fun with this one. His hair didn’t turn out exactly as I had imagined, but I’m still satisfied with it. I especially love the little cape I gave him. Next up is […]

Pikachu – Super Smash Saturday 07

Today’s Super Smash Saturday character is Pikachu! Next week’s character is Marth! I love the Fire Emblem games, so I’m definitely excited for next week’s character 😀 This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone wants to join in and create your own version of Marth for next Saturday you are more than welcome […]

The Devil’s in the Details

So, details! For me, the details are what makes my crochet pieces come alive and feel complete. Like Deku’s freckles, or Fox’s belt, or the Pokeball centers. Small things like that can make a huge difference in how the finished piece looks! In this post, I’ll go over some of my favorite ways to add […]

Fox – Super Smash Saturday 06

Phew, the first row of characters is already almost done! I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by, does anyone else feel that way? But anyway, today’s character is Fox! I didn’t have the exact color for him, but got it close enough. He reminds me a little bit of my red panda […]
