Amigurumi : characters from The Iron Fey series
Julie Kagawa, the author of The Iron Fey series (The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen and The Iron Knight(will be released on some month in 2011)) was running a contest to celebrate The Iron Queen's release (Jan 25). Here was the link about the contest.


Thank you Julie for writing an amazing story and doing this contest. I really enjoyed making them.

Okay, the process. Craft is one of my many hobbies. The moment I knew and decided to joined the contest, a crochet doll just popped into my head. I've done quite a few amigurumi (crochet doll) but never made a human-like doll before. The problem was I didn't know how to do the hair part. I searched through the internet to find how to do it. And thank you to


for the how to. (It's Thai but the procedure pictures were pretty clear you don't have to know Thai to understand it. If someone want to make one.) Head and bodies patterns created by me. :D

The Tuxedos

I have a little hard time doing these. I didn't know what classic black tuxedo looks like. I didn't know what is a cuff link. I got all the images from Google.

I tried to find ken doll's tuxedo pattern and found nothing so I created them myself.

The Blue Gown

I enjoyed making the gown the most. And also the hairdo. I did a search for prom dresses and prom hair styles like I was going to prom myself.

Grimalkin, the cat

Actually, I wasn't going to make him like that in the first place. But I spent so much time with the other three I have no time left to make him look more proper cat.

I finished the body part but have problem with the head. I made one but it looked like a mouse. So I searched and found this pattern

PS. Julie just announced the winners last night. I won the grand prize :D
