Amigurumi Doll is Finished!!!

Here is Sarita! Isn't she cute?

Next time I need to lower the features of the face. I keep placing the eyes too high. My braids came out a little longer than suggested. It's all good, right?

Mia has a great hair tutorial. I have too admit that I did not follow the tutorial step by step. I need a lot more practice. But I did my best!

Here is a close up of the face.
Hmmm, what's next? I should probably catch up with all my FOs. I probably have like 100 of them, seriously. I don't know about you, but I always have a bunch of projects on the needles. I get really anxious. It's like if all my ideas are going to disappear so I have to start them right away. The funny thing is that, most of the time, I just put them aside and don't get back to them until years later, if I ever do.

I've also made some amigurumis that I find so ugly that I won't even give them away to charity :) I only give stuff away if I really like them. There is this particular doll that I made a couple of years ago that I don't know what her problem is but I don't like it. Well, I think is her face. I always had a hard time making those faces. Now that I'm doing better with embroidering, I might try to fix her. My husband thinks the problem is the hair. I was really proud of the hair. I made it short and curly. A new technique I was learning back then. I think it might be the yarn I used. I'm going to find her and take a picture to post here. Perhaps you guys can give me some ideas.


  1. She is absolutely beautiful! I love the hair.

  2. Larissa - I can tell you are a perfectionist.. I don't see anything wrong with the placement of the eyes. It turned out so beautiful - Also, yes I would like to see that other doll you say you are not happy with.

  3. Thank you so much!!! I have to start digging thru my piles and find my old projects. I'll post them pretty soon :)
