My monster doll finally got himself some fancy arms! I had to go into my project bag and find the arms that I made him from when I first started this crochet pattern. If you’ve been crocheting along through Patreon, you might have to do the same thing. The time lost looking for his arms was totally worth it. Look how regal and might he looks with his new frilly underarms now that his arms are sewn onto his body. Frickin’ cool.
The delay here was completely ridiculous. School ended not even 2 weeks ago, and it completely threw me off my schedule. To be fair… this update should make up for the wait. I started out trying to make some cool
It’s week #3, and this guy is so freakin’ cool. We’re adding the eyelids, nose, teeth, and lips this week. It makes such a difference in the doll once they have a face. This part is going to take a little patience, but it’ll all be worth seeing your monster doll come to life as you’re stitching.
I was going to finish this doll’s eyelids, teeth, and mouth for this week; the body being left open was really bothering me. We’ll get to the face details next week. I promise. The legs/bottom area was giving me a
This doll was originally going to be something completely different. I’m not sure what happened between the head and upper body, but it’s not going in the direction I had originally started. I should probably get back to sketching out
Everywhere you look on the internet, someone is telling you that you have to give things away in order to attract potential buyers. It’s good business. As a good businesswoman, I made sure that I was offering free crochet patterns
Seriously. What are the last few items that you have crocheted for yourself? I used to be really bad at this, but a little motivation to change goes a long way. I crocheted the last Monster Puppet for myself, my upcoming Not a Shawl Shawlette, and the Jackalackackie Hat. I wear the shawlette and hat all the time. Winter soccer practice has been at this creepy (like ax murderer creepy) park, where we have to walk up a giant road to the building with no heat. They have come in handy in keeping me warm.
These puppets may be my all time favorite crochet pattern design that I have ever come up with. Scratch that. They are my all time favorite design. I’ve been quietly designing and testing these patterns for the KBG Patreon page. I wanted to make a really cool crochet pattern for anyone who supports my Knot By Gran’ma crochet pattern designing. These guys fill that goal.
There is so much laughing and funny looks around here. This puppet has been pretty fun to make, and it’s cracking me up. She’s been out on the coffee table for a few weeks now. No matter how many times I see her, it’s still a little unsettling that there’s a head just laying there. She’s waiting for a body… I have to make her a tentacle body like the original puppet, and I think I’ll add a human body too (I’ll figure out how to make them interchangeable). It’s going to be awesome. But for now, she’s just a floating head; hanging out on the coffee table for us to play with.
