Hi Everyone!

Those of you who entered the 2010 Spring/Summer Writing Challenge here might remember the Nightcrawler crochet dolls I offered as prizes.

Nightcrawler Dolls

Nightcrawler and Spiderman

I actually taught myself how to crochet specifically so I could make myself a Nightcrawler plushy for my birthday. :bday Well, since then, I've a hammered out a few more patterns. I've made Faramir from Lord of the Rings, Link from Zelda, Bob from ReBoot, Spiderman, and a few others, on request from friends.

Now, I'm working on a new project: Smurfs! I recently worked out a Smurf pattern and I now have a small collection of handmade crochet Smurfs: Papa Smurf, Hefty Smurf, and Sassette Smurfling. I'm hoping these cute little guys will help me scrape together some food-fund money for all the research trips I need to take this semester. Here's an example of what they look like:

This isn't a sales pitch or anything. I'm really proud of these little guys and I wanted to show them off. :) But, if any of you are interested, my Smurfs are on sale at RowenaZahnreiCrafts: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RowenaZahnreiC ... ef=si_shop
No pressure to buy, seriously, but if you do take a peek at my Smurfs, please let me know what you think of them! I'd appreciate any feedback, or suggestions for improvements I might work into the pattern!

Thanks! :D

Those are excellent, Rowena!:clap
They look like they're straight from the toy company.

They are awesome. I still have my Nightcrawler, though he's packed away at the moment. :D

Awesome! Thanks so much!!! :D

Here's a Jokey Smurf I just made as a birthday request!

I don't know what I'll make next. I'll think about Venom--that would be a serious challenge!--but I might make another Nightcrawler, and then maybe try something original.

Thanks again! I'm really happy you like my crochet character designs!!! :D

These are really cute Rowena. Did you make a Nightcrawler one? I'd love to see a picture of it.

Awww, those are adorable!

I can't crochet to save my life (I just stick to my felt toys) so you have my admiration on these. I do know it's awesome when you work out a new pattern/come up with a new concept that ends up working well, so I wish more good luck with your critters :D
