We’re finally at the end of this 3 part little series on drawing to create amigurumi dolls. If you missed Part 1 & Part 2, check them out to catch up. This is a super helpful tool for designing your own crochet patterns and plush dolls.
We started out with this little drawing of a monster.
She ended up looking like this…. notice the lack of sneaker and differences from the original drawing. There are quite a few changes. That is supposed to happen. I hated the original mouth once I had her crocheted up… thus the goofy smile instead. It turns out that crocheting sneakers can be problematic, and would have been confusing for the crochet pattern. I decided to leave them out. I’m glad I did. The effect is still there, but now it’s an easier design to share with others.
I decided to turn her into a free crochet pattern for everyone. She measures about 9 inches tall when she’s standing up and has the ability to sit also. You can download her here!
So I also wanted to share some sketches that I’ve done. One has already been turned into a doll, and the other is on my list of incredibly fun things to crochet.
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this series… and taken away a little more knowledge on sketching out designs for your crochet pieces. This technique works well for other crochet work also.
