Making Au-ghost Amigurumi
It has been a while since I was able to crochet something that I want instead of something that I need to finish because it is an order. I am not complaining about the akount of orders I received in the past month. On the contrary, I feel quite happy with what I managed to crochet last July.
Still, it does npt erase the fact that most of the things I crocheted last month are repetitive. Most times, I was crocheting headset covers. I received more than 2 dozens orders of headset covers so I am not really that eager to crochet that again. But I actually just crocheted 2 headset covers this day because I received an order.
These are the headset covers I made earlier.
After making these orders, I finally had the time to make an amigurumi that I have been wanting to make for a while now. This is the perfect time since I delisted all my products on my online shop, and I also put the store on vacation mode (even though I am not actually on vacation). I just put it in vacation mode to tell the prospective buyers that I am not around and I will not be able to reply to their inquiries.
Anyway, let us now go to the amigurumi I made.
This amigurumi project is not a freehand of mine. I followed a free pattern of how to make an amigurumi ghost. Feel free to check out the pattern and follow along the instructions. I can assure you that it is an easy project to make. I made mine in about an hour with breaks in between.
Since I used a free pattern, I will not be wasting my time writing the pattern on this article. Just click the link I attached in the Pattern part of this article if you are interested in making your own ghost amigurumi.
I started with a magic ring like the usual pattern in amigurumi. I crocheted in circle which is why I used a stitch marker so that I will not lose count of the stitches.
I prepared a 3.00mm safety eyes. This is different from what is needed in the pattern which is 2.50mm. This is the only size of safety eyes I have so I made do with it.
I attached the safety eyes as instructed in the pattern. I always have a hard time attaching safety eyes because I am so weak that I can not close the safety eyes with just one push. I have to put my everything in closing the safety eyes.
This is the ghost amigurumi without the pumpkin hat. I contempkated if I should add a hat or not but in the end I decided to attach one for an added cuteness factor.
Here is what the pumpkin hat looks like before I attached it to the ghost amigurumi. The pumpkin hat is easy to make, and I am tempted to use it for more amigurumi dolls. I used sewing pins to put the hat in place so that I can take my time with sewing it onto the ghost body.
This is what the end product looks like. I lovingly caled this one Au-ghost since it is a ghost amigurumi that I made in August.
This is a part of my Halloween collection. I know, it is just August and I am alresdy thinking of Halloween. Sue me, I really want to do some cute and creepy amigurumis for November. I am just preparing in advance so that I have a lot of time to choose which amigurumis to make.
I actually already have a witch hat keychain, but I will keep that to myself for now. This Au-ghost keychain is just too cute that is why I immediately shared it with you guys.
