I think we can all agree that amigurumi is awesome, and among the talented artists practicing it aphid777
stands out. Evelyn has an inspiring gallery that steps beyond traditional crocheting and into architectural amigurumi, with characters capable of standing out and posing, removable and detailed accessories, felted realistic eyes, feathery hair, and more! Not only that, she's also one of the nicest person you'll ever meet. If you haven't seen her work yet, I encourage you to get acquainted with her and her talent:
About 4 and a half years ago, I had some time off of school because I didn't get into professional school after finishing undergraduate. I was pretty depressed, so during that time, I decided to pick up a hobby. I had always wanted to learn how to crochet! I started off making scarves and practicing textures, until I discovered free amigurumi patterns online to try out. That was when I found my calling!
There are so many different fanbases that I love, so I would describe my work as fanart! I'm inspired by characters and stories from movies, games, comics, etc. The way I express my love for these characters is by designing them into yarny creations that I can hold in my hands It's quite an obsession!
Crocheting is a relatively inexpensive hobby! The main tools I use are my crochet hook, yarn, polyfil stuffing, and occasionally wire. I've also combined a different art form called needle felting into my work for eyes and other details. For that, I use a special needle felting needle and some wool. Since I am usually making characters from a fanbase, I also use tons of reference pictures online!
