Greg Amigurumi - Over the Garden Wall by bandotaku
Greg Amigurumi - Over the Garden Wall
Watched Over the Garden Wall. Then this happened. :D

I was going to make a pattern, but I feel like he needs Wirt first. I have to make them both. :XD: But right now, I'm not sure when I'll get around to making Wirt, since I'm just so busy with student teaching. Aaaaghhh.

Hi Everyone!

I am so busy. I can hardly believe I'm already into my 4th week of student teaching (WHAT) and it's been an incredible ride so far. My first grade class is just wonderful and my cooperating teacher is so helpful and kind. She's definitely giving me all of the help I need.

Anyway, I finished making Greg from Over the Garden Wall about a week ago and I haven't had a chance to take pictures. If you have not watched OTGW yet, please do. It's a really short series on Cartoon Network, and it's so unique and different. I have plenty of notes and WIP pics of Greg, enough to make a pattern for him, but I feel like he needs a Wirt to go along with him... When I'll get the time and energy to go about making Wirt is another story! I just feel like they need to be a set. Like Ash ad Pikachu. Frodo and Sam. Tom and Jerry. Peanut butter and jelly.

Also, do you ever still get comments on deviations from like...2009? And you see a comment that says, "Wow, this is pretty good," or, "Not bad, I like how you drew ____," and you go take look at the drawing, and inside you're like, "OH GOSH, I drew that six years ago, I didn't know what I was doing, pretty sure I drew that in geometry class, how did you find that? Please look away!"

It makes me happy knowing that there are people who find some of my old works and like them. But please. Don't look. :XD: Which leads me to a question: what do you do with the things you have posted from years ago that you are no longer proud of? Do you take the time to clean through your submissions? Delete old, ugly works? Dump them in your scraps folder? Or just leave them be, as past relics of the proof of how much you have grown? ;) Let me know in the comments!

Hope you're having a great week!
Rocket Raccoon Amigurumi by bandotaku
Rocket Raccoon Amigurumi
I finally made Rocket! Ever since I saw Guardians of the Galaxy I wanted to make him, but wasn't quite sure how at the time. After seeing on DVD a few days ago... this happened!
Made out of acrylic yarn, he measures about 8" tall and he has plastic canvas keeping his neck sturdy.

:bulletblue: Buy the pattern on Ravelry or on Etsy!

Cynder Amigurumi (again...Pattern finally!) by bandotaku
Cynder Amigurumi (again...Pattern finally!)
This is the third (I think?) Cynder amigurumi I have made, this time for the sake of finally making a pattern for her. Why I have waited so long, I have no idea, probably lack of energy, but I've been asked quite a few times about a pattern...so here it is!!!

And of course, while making her I was hit with a strong burst of Spyro nostalgia and I had to play the only game left I haven't beaten yet... Spyro: A Hero's Tail! Actually, that's not true, I never beat Enter the Dragonfly either, but honestly, who can get through that game? Oddly enough, Cynder isn't even in Hero's Tail... weird. And it's not even one of my favorites, but I beat it. And that's all that matters. :XD:

Cynder has aluminum jewelry wire in her wings and tail, and the pattern shows you how to use the wire. Fabric paint was used for her markings and eyes. She measures about 8" tall and 12" long.

:bulletblue: Buy the crochet pattern on Etsy or on Ravelry!

:bulletgreen: Buy the actual plush here!

Spry (Baby Skylanders Spyro) Amigurumi by bandotaku
Spry (Baby Skylanders Spyro) Amigurumi
As a commission, I made the character Spry from Skylanders. I guess he's like a "mini-Spyro." It was pretty fun to make, I'm starting to appreciate some of what Skylanders has done with Spyro. They sure are reviving him in a way that kids really enjoy, and I think that's really important. I do hope someday they bring back traditional Spyro games. He doesn't feel like the same Spyro anymore, and I miss that.

But anyway, I really liked making this little guy! His big feet are my favorite. Hes about 10" long, 9" tall, hand-crocheted. He has wire in his wings and the eyes are painted on felt with fabric paint.

If there's some interest, I'd be open to making a pattern! Let me know in the comments if anyone would be interested.

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my deviantArt page. I suppose that means you're somewhat interested in my silly doodles or crochetted nonsense. Feel free to comment on any of my works or just say hello. Who doesn't love comments?

I'm currently a college student, majoring in things not art-related. My art is just a hobby, though I'm flattered that people suggest things greater.

I kind of take commissions randomly, but I always seem to have some pre-made plushes in my shop, so please check them out! If there's something you really want and are willing to pay for, just message me! I may not always have time, but there's no harm in asking. :)

Thanks for visiting!
