Falco – Super Smash Saturday 16

Its Falco! I really like the red around his eyes, and I made him without a jacket, like Fox.

Next week’s character is a Pokemon Trainer!

This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone wants to join in and create your own version of a Pokemon Trainer for next Saturday you are more than welcome to! Use #supersmashtokyo to share your projects and tag me on Instagram @tokyodragon.crochet

Meta Knight – Super Smash Saturday 15

This week is Meta Knight! It was another interesting one to make, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out.

For the mask area, I used fabric on top of felt. I had wanted to use felt for the entire thing, but didn’t have the right gray color. So, since I had fabric on hand that’s what I went with!

The next character is Falco!

Yoshi – Super Smash Saturday 13

So this week was supposed to be Pit, but I had to switch things up a little bit. Instead, this week is Yoshi!

I followed the wonderful pattern by AmiAmour, you can find the pattern here. This pattern is easy to follow and pretty ingenious!

Here are some pictures of how it turned out:

I should be able to get Pit done for next week!

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!

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 it to have. As I did some research and looking around, I came across… safety eyes!

Ever since starting with safety eyes, it’s been my go to method. I love the look it gives my crochet creations, and it also provides that finished quality I was looking for.

I usually work with 8mm or 12mm safety eyes, which I order from 6060 on Etsy. I get the usual black eyes, and if I find myself needing different color eyes, I just paint the ones I have.

There are, of course, plenty of other ways to add eyes, including felt, sewing, needle felting, buttons, fabric paint, and more! Each method gives the crochet a different look; it all depends on the style you’re going for. If you have any methods you use, share it in the comments!

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!

Mr. Game and Watch – Super Smash Saturday 09

This week it’s Mr. Game & Watch! It was certainly something new for me, and a bit of a challenge, but I think it worked out somehow.

Next up on the roster is Luigi!
