Amigurumi contest Rules question.

I have read through the contest rules but I wanted to ask about this rule: Each entry must be entirely the original work of the persons identified in the entry Since this is an amigurumi contest, is it okay if you make an amigurumi using someone else's pattern? Giving credit of course.

make your own amigurumi-the most addictive DIY.

Amigurumi(100%handmade knitted stuffed toys) is easy for the beginner. once you know the basic skills, you can make your own amigurumi according to the pattern. After enough practice, you can creat it without other peoples' pattern. At that time, you are a master.

How can I make stuffing?

Hello! I love to do amigurumi, but I've noticed that stuffing is very expensive. I'm looking for new way to stuff my amigurumi. I've already had used: stuffing soft polyester fibre mattress and pillow wool absorbent cotton balls of old wool (almost run out of these :D) Any other ideas? I'm looking for a way to make stuffing out of rags. Thanks :)

Amigurumi Contest Question

I have a question about this contest. Is it only open to knitted or crocheted creations, or are felted items welcome too? I.e., anything made of wool/yarn? Thanks, Susan

How do I make craft/doll/bear eyes like these ?

I have been working with craft eyes off of etsy (like these ttp://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22445960 ) for a while now. But the truth is, no one seems to make the eye size I want. They are all a bit small. Does anyone know how these eyes are made? I thought it might be fun if I made my own. Are there molds I can buy or blanks I can paint ?? I want to make about 20 pairs of these, but really large if possible.

Existing Crocheted Instructables

I know there are so many cool instructables already out there about crocheted things. Anybody want to share any for inspiration for the contest? I love my muppets: https://www.instructables.com/id/A_Crocheted_Tribute_to_Dr_Teeth_and_the_Electric_/ They're actually on display at the American Textile Museum right now. And I did make Animal, I just haven't photographed him yet.

Yarn work Question

Hello! I'm Jordan the Knitter and I'm new to instructables. This website is amazing! I thought it would be fun to start out with a question. Is there anything you would like to learn in the realm of yarn work? I've been working yarn for about eight years. I spend a good bit of time avoiding homework by instructing others and making my own designs.

Amigurumi doll

It'd be very much appreciated. So Ive just recently taken up amigurumi and Ive done some basic things like poke balls and mario mushrooms, easy enough. However,I want to move on to makng dolls. In particular I want to make a Naruto doll like the one in the link Ive attached. Im finding it difficult to find a pattern for this exact shape of doll though, and also I think I would like to make it smaller anyway.... would anyone be able to give me any advice on this? Actually if anyone knew of any video tutorials on making this shape doll that'd be even better. Also, regarding the colour change in the body, I know how to do a basic colour change where you would have say a row of red and then you change it to white so that the whole next row is white, but if you look at this doll there's a line of black going vertically up his torso and Im not sure how I would go about this type of colour change? It seems complicated? Like I said I would be sooooo grateful for any help anyone could give... I want to make this for someone special :) Thanks guys :)

Can't add text to slideshow / text gone after edit

So, I went to edit the accompanying text for a slideshow of mine, and, after submitting my changes, *all* of the text was gone. I figured that I'd just messed up somewhere in the process, so I went back and added all of the original text back again. Submit. No text with the entry. Ok, so maybe the problem was with my Linux/Firefox setup.  I switched over to Mac/Firefox. Entered in the text again. Submit. No text with the entry. Mac/Safari? Entered in the text again. Submit. No text with the entry. So... is there any way that I can add text to my slideshow again?  I would really like to do so. For reference, this is the slideshow in question: https://www.instructables.com/id/Amigurumi-and-the-Perils-of-Space-Travel/ Thanks!

How to make a mini crochet goose? Or knitted? It's made of string thats all i know!! :) I'd even appreciate a pattern.

When I was a youngster I had a mini farm play set. It had a cow, pig, ,chicken, goose, etc..... All were made of string like cotton, not furry string. The animals were not more than 2 inches high, and were life like, not animated like amigurumi. The goose was my fav, and I would like to make one of  my own, I can't find mine but I can describe him. He was: About 2 inches high, he had orange feet with wire to form them and an orange beak which was used to put the stuffing down into his body. I don't remember him having wings, but he had a long neck with a little red piece of string around it for a bow.. I absolutely love this toy and if anyone has a pattern to email to me that I could scale down even would be very much appreciated.. I want to make a mini farm set for my new baby neice!! :) I am going to learn to crochet, and try to have it done before she turns 4!!! LOL Someone once told me it may have been an Annies Attic pattern but I haven't found the book yet.. Thank you so much.
