Monster Hunter Buddies

My little brother's a big fan of the game Monster Hunter and he just loves playing it so much. He like goes into nirvana when he gets his hand on the PSP. Hahaha! ^^

So he asked me to make him a key chain sized Poogie in watermelon costume which he said he will attach on his PSP. Nerd turd! Hahaha! I love him. ^^ Okay no problem... I Just need the Ideal Sphere pattern by Emily Premise-Conclusion

As a umm... Semi-semi beginner, I advise you to always have this around, anytime, anywhere 'coz it's the most helpful thing when making amigurumis. It's the best pattern to make perfect heads or reference for making other shapes. Seriously awesome. ^^

*Initially I used the #57 - Caterpillar and #54 - Lettuce yarn for the watermelon suit but it wasn't accurate to the actual Poogie. So instead of Caterpillar, use #100 - Raven with Lettuce. ^^

Sorry it already looks beaten up and a bit tattered, I wasn't able to take pictures when I made it. I'm really not the photographing kind. Hehehe  

After I finished Poogie, my little brother asked me again to make him a monster hunter key chain and this time of the cat, Melynx. Of course this was more of a challenge since it had more complicated parts, but being such a good sister, I gave it a shot anyway. So I made a prototype and yeah... That didn't go so well. It was a CAT-astrophe! Hahaha! Get it? CAT-astrophe? I mean... I... Never mind! -_- It was actually so bad that whenever I see it I could hear its tiny, meowy voice saying "Please... Kill me. Kill me now!". Yikes!  

Anyway, it took me more than six months to find the perfect pattern but thank goodness I did... A tiny cat key chain pattern by Pierrot Gosyo with a bonus pouch or cozy pattern for naked cellphones. How thoughtful. ^^

Of course I tweaked it a bit to make it look like Melynx and I'd say I delivered. Couldn't be happier with the result... Except maybe I forgot to write it all down. Yup! I got too excited and went on a crocheting frenzy. It was already too late when I realized it. Humm-dumm... -_- Sigh! C'est la vie. Well, at least I took pictures. Hehehe! ^^

Melynx turned out bigger than the intended key chain size since I mistakenly used a bigger hook. I guess I didn't thoroughly read the instructions and materials needed. Tee-hee! ^^ My little brother still loved it nonetheless and just attached it to his bag since it's too big for the PSP. Nerd turd! Hahaha! ^^
