It's an Xmas miracle, I finished him in time! It's probably a good thing I finished with so little time to spare. If I had to look at his adorable little face for too long I would never be able to give him away!
I didn't quite get him finished this weekend, but it's close! He has eyes now, and he's not naked anymore. I couldn't find the right size safety eyes to use for him so I had to crochet some. They're not as shiny but I think it will look fine once the rest of the eyelid... Continue Reading →
Squeeee! He's looking so cute! And with an ear sewn on he definitely looks like Baby Yoda now. All those bits in front of him are his face bits like his nose and eyebrows. I can't sew them on until I get some black yarn to make his eyes. I'm a little sad that he's... Continue Reading →
Hooray, my baby Yoda has arms! He still needs a lot of work to get his face and ears done, but it feels like it is getting closer. At least my spouse can stop saying he looks like a dismembered Kermit the Frog now...
Hey, baby Yoda has two feet now! I talked to my mom the other night and she was complaining that there is a wait until April to get an official plushie of The Child. If I can get this one done in time for xmas I know it will be loved!
Baby Yoda has most of a body now! It has been a little slower going than I would like, but I think I should still be able to get it finished before xmas. Looking at this photo also makes me realize that I should research techniques for decreases that are less visible. It is funny... Continue Reading →
Most of the body is finished now. It is looking like I might have enough stuffing for the body but not the legs and arms. I'm going to keep moving forward and get as much as I can done before I run out.
I made some more progress on this adorable green baby today. As I start on the body I'm beginning to worry that I don't have enough stuffing for him. If I do run out I'll have to wait until I get home in a few weeks to finish him. In the meantime I can make... Continue Reading →
This photo doesn't look very different from yesterday's. The main difference is that the head is now full of stuffing. I really like making amigurumi but the tight stitches make my hands cramp up so I can only make a little progress at a time.
Once again I had great plans to work on my socks and instead I started yet another new project. This time I was overwhelmed by the internet sensation and star of the new Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Of course I'm talking about The Child (aka Baby Yoda). I had seen various images and... Continue Reading →
I finally made some time to work on this model kit again. It's much nicer to do this on the weekend when I can work during the day. The natural light lets me actually see what I am doing. I probably would have made more progress but I got distracted partway through. I realized there... Continue Reading →
