Fibi the Fox – ta-da!

Hello everyone!  Today Fibi the Fox was completed, and it’s time to share her with you!

Fibi the Fox - crocheted amigurumi fox

If you ignore the quantities of dog hair that grace the cushion (that stuff NEVER comes all the way off!!!), Fibi turned out well.  The pattern is available for sale over on Ravelry for about $6.39, if you want to check it out!

Fibi the Fox - crocheted by NotYourAverageCrochet

I used KnitPicks Palette yarn for the body, and a scrap of Cascade Heritage Paints for the scarf.  The arms are a bit long, but that’s because the gauge is looser than the gauge of the body (that’s what happens when you lay a project aside for a while, I guess).

Fibi the Fox - crocheted amigurumi darling fox!This actually took a while to do — amigurumi in general does, I find, because of how tight you have to crochet and all of the nooks and crannies and sewing together of parts.  It’s worth it though!

That’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’re enjoying the “everything you need to know about _______” posts (knitting needles & crochet hooks)– there’s one more coming up soon!


Sharon Needles doll

I have a guilty pleasure — it’s the TV show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”  If you’re not familiar with it, it’s like “America’s Next Top Model” only with drag queens.  It’s so flamboyant and crazy and sometimes ridiculous, but I can’t help loving it.  My favorite of the final three contestants is Sharon Needles because she’s so outrageously sweet and nice, but she has this goth/satanic look going for her when she dresses in drag (I can’t help but love the spooky look)!  In tribute to Sharon, I made an amigurumi type doll of her:

Here is the picture I based the doll off of, so you can compare the two.

I also like her so much that a couple of weeks ago I purchased a limited-time-only autographed poster of her, and I framed it the other day:

And yes it says “Hail Satan,”  that’s her funny slogan she uses.  Don’t worry, I’m not Satanic.  I just love my pretty goth drag queen!

I know this post was different than usual — I’ll get back to normal next time!  I just had to share, even though I get excited about weird things sometimes.  See you later!
