Another Birthday Present

Originally I meant to do this and the last post as one but I ended up splitting them up as it got very long and I’m noticing I ramble on haha.

But this is another present and card that I made recently, it was for a friends birthday just a couple of days ago.

Starting with the card. He’s a big Nintendo fan so it was pretty easy to come up with this idea.wp_20170202_15_06_24_pro

I started the present months ago as it was just an idea and I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out or even if I wanted to make it at all. I teased you with this photo:


It was a long time ago and I didn’t post any updates since then because I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. It went on hold going up to Christmas as there was just so much other stuff to do but I got back onto it in January and here is the finished object next to its rather more expensive twin so you can see what it should look like.

It’s the bb8 droid from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. I used this pattern that I found on ravelry.

I don’t normally do amigurumi so I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. It has some weight beads in the base to keep it upright.

      1. I suppose, since I’m supposed to be resting with my feet up, now would be the time to get out my books, hook, yarn, and give it a go.

      2. I don’t think Jess will mind us chatting here lol . . . yes, I’ve watched a couple of videos, but I’ve also bought myself a book with instructions for left-handers because I’m a leftie. I’ll probably combine both Learning methods, but I think I’ll be more comfortable with pictures in a book to start with.

      3. Not at all. Chat away πŸ™‚
        There are some great left hand crochet videos too. But it’ll just depend if you get it better in text or on video to which helps more.
