Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Well, time sure flies... It only seemed like yesterday when my little niece was born, started to walk, had her first birthday... Now she just turned two. Aaw! Our little princess is growing up. ^^ It really is the most adorable thing when your niece already recognizes you... From being called "ta-ta-ta", she now clearly calls me "Auntie". ^^

So for her second birthday, such a sweet, little girl like her of course deserves a cute, little gift. With "cute, little gift" I meant amigurumis of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. 
This time it wasn't a surprise gift, but a special request from my sister-in-law. 

Honestly, I was hoping that my niece would be a little mermaid fan (Like me. ^^) but I guess Snow White's good too... C'est la vie. -_- Well, when the time comes that I have a daughter I'm gonna make sure she'll go gaga over mermaids. Yes... Let the fish tail and scales flow through you. Mwahahaha! Nice. ^^

     
Anyway, for Snow White I used the Disney Animators' Collection Snow White doll as reference. Well, I just thought it would be more adorable to make her in her toddler form. ^^
Then for the base, I used Serah Basnet's Cookie doll pattern. Of course I tweaked it a little bit to fit the doll's profile.

FO, leave tail for sewing
*Stitch to the head

HAIR
(Raven)
*Get 2 to 3 skeins of Raven then with no particular pattern, just create an mr and continue to 1sc-inc all around until the skeins run out. No need to use a marker. Just go crazy! ^^
*Get a small tub and fill it with water. Not so sure on measurements but fill it enough that all the circles you make could get soaked
*Pour some glue, but not too much to make it thick and gooey
*After soaking the circles, pull it out to dry. A hair dryer would take less time, but if you don't have one then the good ol' sun will be good enough. It would be practical to do this before doing the rest of the parts so the hair would be ready by the time you finish everything else. Drying time usually lasts up to two days
*When it's dry, unravel the circles and you'll find that it created little curls. Cut the strands in 16-inch lengths then attach to the hair cap
*Use my favorite hair tutorial to attach the hair
*When you've attached all the strands, cut it to desired length. Do some styles if you like

Finally, with a little blush here and there... And viola!!! Snow White is done and done. Phew! That was some work out. I thought I'd never finish. She was really quite the challenge my friend, it took me a whole month. Yikes! XD But like what they always say, "You can't rush art." Okay, she may not be an exact replica of the doll but still very sweet and adorable. ^^
Do you remember Mirmo de Pon!? A Japanese anime about a tiny, fairy prince named Mirmo? Well, if you do then you know how cute these fairy characters were... Big chubby cheeks, palm-top height, and tiny, stubby legs... Such darling cutie-patooties. ^3^
So for my version of the Seven Dwarves, I used the adorable fairy prince as reference. Weee!!! ^^ Seriously, it would be a mortal sin not to. I mean, how much cuter can it get? Nothing says "I wuv you!" more than bite-sized seven dwarves in rainbow colored onesies. Hehehe! Ooh! I can't wait to see how adorable they'll look when my sweet, little niece plays with them. Aww! Cuteness overload. ^^

For Mirmo de Pon! fans out there, you can totally use this to make your own amigurumi of Mirmo, Rirumi, Yashichi or other fairy characters. Just make the head a little bigger or make the body smaller to perfectly match the ones in the anime. ^^

  2. This is so great! Today i took my hook :)
    I found one little problem...the haircap, in row 11-15 you say: 36sc-inc,ch1-turn (57) But how can you have 57 stiches when you turn?? is that 37?
    And can you tell how the hair is done? thank you!!

    1. I'll get back to you on the hair cap. I'm doing a double check right now. Sorry, this might take a while. ^^

      The hair? You mean the curls? Well, I just crocheted the black yarn into rounds. No exact count. Like do 1sc-inc until your yarn runs out. Afterwards I dipped into a glue solution (White glue + Water) and let it dry. For it to totally dry it takes 1 to 2 days. It takes a while so make sure you make a lot of it. Was it clear? Hope that helped. ^^

    1. Thanks for telling me. I'm trying to contact Ravelry now. But the link you gave me is encountering an error. I thought maybe they have already done something about it. But just to be sure, I'm reporting it anyway. Man! Such people! I gave the pattern for free and some jerk is making a profit out of it? That's why we can't have nice things. What goes around, comes around. I hope he/she gets it real bad/ X(

  5. Hola! Si cada pierna son 18 puntos, entonces 18+18=36 ¿cómo es q en la vuelta 4 se hacen 32 puntos?
    Hi! I have a question if in 3 round each legs has 18 stitches and 18+18=36, how in the next round you do 32 stitches?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. These are the legs for the dwarves right?

      When you finish in Rnd 3 you end up with 18 counts and then attach them together with 2 stitches to continue to the body. Because you do 2 stitches to attach the legs together, you will be removing two counts from each leg; from 18 it becomes 16. So when you do Rnd 4 you will ignore the 2 stitches and sc around, making the count to 32. In Math, it goes like (18-2)x2 or something to that effect. Sorry, I suck at math. Hahaha! Anyway, was that helpful? ^^
