Tony Tony Chopper

My little brother and I, with our mom and dad went on a vacation in Palawan last July 2013. It was also the rare opportunity to visit my uncle (mom's brother) and his family who lived there in Puerto Princesa. We haven't seen them in a long time for like I don't know... Almost two decades? Not really sure but I know it's been reeeeeally long. O_O

The island was so beautiful and I enjoyed every minute of it... Visiting the crocodile farm, riding a boat to the underground river, shopping in the local souvenir shops, island hopping, taking tons of pictures and best of all, snorkeling and swimming with the fishes. It was really a once in a lifetime experience. I even saw a rainbow fish. Awesome!!! ^^ 

We really enjoyed our stay and thought 3 days were too short. Aww! Of course we plan to go back... But not until my piggy bank gets off his diet. Yikes! >.<


So in return for my uncle's hospitality, letting us live in their cozy hut home, I decided to make an amigurumi for my sweet cousin as a gift.


My original idea was to make her a family of bears... You know, Papa bear, Mama bear, and Baby bear. Wow, that almost made me break into a song. Hahaha! But my little brother noticed on her Facebook that she's been posting a lot about the anime "One Piece". And that's when it clicked. Why make a family of bears when I could make her the amigurumi that she really loved? Brilliant idea indeed!!! But which character? Pfft! Easy... The adorable little mascot of course... Tony Tony Chopper. Why? Well, I'm not a fan and I think he's cute so yah... Done! ^^

Tony Chopper took longer than it should but I finished it just in time for Christmas. So I mailed the little thing and after a few days received a phone call from my niece and uncle saying that they loved it. Yeah! Another job well done. -^.^-

    1. I'm glad you liked it. ^^

      I used makeup blush-on for the rosy cheeks. You can use a small paint brush to apply it. ^^

    1. Yah, posted this a long time ago so had to do a little review and changed the backpack pattern a bit. Sorry about that. The last supposed rounds from 12-21 is actually not done in rounds but in rows, so I put in Row 12-21 instead. From there, after finishing Row 21, just sl around the opening going counterclockwise from where you stopped. So go left, down the sides, around the opening, then back up on the side again, and FO to where you started. Just make sure that while doing the sl around the flaps, the opening of the backpack is not facing you. Was that clearer? I hope I didn't make it any more confusing. Hahaha
