Hi! Happy Spring (my favorite time of year). My most recent crochet dolly was for a friend at work who should be having a her own little mister any minute now. The pattern is from Amigurumi Two by Ana Paula. I got this book for Christmas and it is chock full of sweet patterns.
Koala Bear endured a few minor changes to his pattern and some mistakes I will try to avoid in the future. They were mostly due to me rushing to get him finished. Ultimately, I think he is frickin' adorable!
For some reason I like most of my plush without one facial feature, but I usually seem to ditch the mouth. I think it allows for individual interpretation of the creature's mood/personality. It makes me use my noodle a little more and I like that.
I also never use any pins when piecing my little guys together which for the most part is no big deal, but I kind of wish I would have with this guy. Every feature on him seems to be "off" to some degree and that may have convinced me to finally start using some straight pins while I sew.
Either way, I love Mr. Marsupial! He turned out really well despite his flaws and I hope his new little friend will love him too. I can't wait to meet you Jack!
