Pita Pan No Bouken

Whenever my brothers and I talk about our favorite cartoons when we were kids, without fail, my second eldest brother's answer would always be the Japanese anime version of the adventures of Peter Pan, "Pita Pan no Bouken". Well I could very well understand since it really was an awesome cartoon, and I don't know anyone who loved it more than he did.

So gift idea for his birthday? Obviously an amigurumi of Peter Pan and Tinkerbell... Anime style! ^^

Part 1: Making Peter Pan

You'd be surprised where I got the the pattern from for the head and body base... From a Cthulhu! Who knew that someone could make an amigurumi of a mythical, blood-thirsty monster cute enough to be a base for a chibi? Minus the facial tentacles of course. Clearly, Rural Rebellion can. ^^

Crochet Hook - K10.5 (6.5 mm)
*A K10.5 hook is fairly big so like what I did with Plue, I took two skeins of yarn and crocheted them as one,  doubling the amount of yarn I needed. So if you're gonna make this in a smaller size with a smaller hook, just cut the number of skeins in half.

Part 2: Making Tinkerbell

Okay, making her was a toughie. I had to completely redo her after making the first one. For one thing, the pattern I adapted it from was in Spanish, so any further instructions other than the number of rounds and rows were a bit difficult for me to understand. Then there was the issue with the eyes... For some reason, I couldn't decide whether to use beads, felt or yarn to embroider them on her face. Well, since I couldn't make up my mind I tried the trial and error approach and yah... That didn't go so well. -_-

So I ended up with Tinkerbell Prototype 1 and thank heavens, no 2, 3 or 4 came after it. Phew! o_O The Chibi pattern was written by Silvia Usón.

*With white glue, keep the spiky hairstyle in place
*Make sure to let it dry in a clean container or else dirt will still stick to it. Also, make sure to keep it in a place where the hair can't be touched otherwise it'd be ruined

*Sitch the main wing on top of the sub wing
*It should look like this:
*Attach the wings on the back
*Make sure there's a little space between them when stitched so that it wouldn't look like a clustered lump
Part 3: Happy Birthday! ^^

Amidst my mishap with Tinkerbell, I accomplished this project in less than a month and just in time for my brother's birthday. ^^ 
So when I surprised my brother with the two amigurumi dolls... His face just went completely... Blank. As in no reaction at all. o_O Speechless and in awe perhaps? Hmm? Hahaha! Well, whatever that meant, I had a good feeling he liked it... My niece certainly did though. ^^
