Recently I took inventory of my unfinished crochet projects and decided it's time to either scrap them, or finish them up. Usually I'm very good about finishing a project before starting on another, but for some reason or another these got put aside. There aren't a lot of them, just enough to bug me!
This little amigurumi baby could actually be done. I set him aside to think about his hair. At first I just wasn't sure about it, but it has grown on me. I was also contemplating giving him some other details, like a bib or maybe some booties, but I kinda like him the way he is. I would like to give him a little smiling mouth though, so I'll do that and he'll be done.
I got the pattern for him out of an older crochet book called "Baby Bow Trims" and modified it a bit. And of course, left off the bow!
This, believe it or not, is a giraffe....or the beginnings of one anyway. I started him quite awhile back, but another terrific pattern, that I just couldn't wait to start caught my eye, so I put him aside. I really meant to go back to him sooner, he just kind of got buried in my yarn box and forgotten.
This is the girl version of the amigurumi baby above. She was suppose to get finished while I was at the beach, but I got inspired to create a beach type doll and never got around to finishing her.
I have miscellaneous "body parts" laying around like this head for another doll. She was set aside until I could get some white crochet thread for around her eyes and by the time I got the thread I had lost interest in her.
I really don't like leaving things unfinished so I imagine I'll finish all of these up eventually. Right now I'm putting the finishing touches on another doll. Hopefully she'll be done by tonight. My plan is to finish her, make some Halloween amigurumi's (I'll be posting some links to free Halloween patterns, as well) and then start on these. Of course my plans are always subject to change, so we'll see!
