Hi! I have only said it about 40,000 times, but what’s one more?!
I AM OBSESSED WITH HALLOWEEN!
So every year I try to really do something special and this year I have invented what I am terming “HUMANGURUMI” … Amigurumi + a Human! LOL!
I present my Baby Jack as ET ! (I am also a way 80s kid, like totally!)
He is free handed and made with no pattern, I literally just tried it on him as I created and stopped when it fit right!
And here it is in action on 10/31/2016 <3 Click here to watch a short video!!
As seen on The Huffington Post! They were so kind when I spoke to them, an absolute pleasure! Read the article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/mom-crochets-et-costume_us_57f662a3e4b05f39c51e7cdb
As seen on Good Morning America Online/Yahoo News! So very happy to have the costume share the smiles! Read the article here: https://gma.yahoo.com/toddlers-mom-crochets-perfect-et-halloween-costume-hand-202516186–abc-news-Halloween.html
CNET! Thank you! https://www.cnet.com/news/e-t-halloween-costume-crocheted-by-mom/
1. How long did that take you?! Most asked question 🙂 I am blessed to have become pretty quick over the years when I just grab the hook and yarn and go to work… I began him on a Friday and I finished him on a Monday, four days!
2. Will there be a pattern? I do not plan to create a pattern for him for a few reasons…Firstly, It is a copyrighted item and to profit off that would probably result in a lawyer sending me a very “formal letter!” Secondly, It would probably be closer to a book in length as I like to be sure my patterns are clear and this would need a million pictures!
That is.. unless, one of you amazing people knows THEE Mr. Spielberg and can send him my digits! Now, THAT would sure be the bees knees! Anyone? Anyone??
3. What is it made of and how much did it cost? He is made of regular worsted weight yarn, held double stranded, namely Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo in Cafe Latte (or as I like to call it, ET brown!) Total project cost? UNDER 10 DOLLARS!
4. Will you make them for sale? He will remain one of a kind and I will not be selling them, but I do hope he inspires you!
5. People either LOVE or are SCARED of ET!?!? This is something I did not know! I am a total 80s kid and I remember ET as nothing but the cutest most adorable little thing ever, but, I learned that some people are scared! LOL! So whether you LOVE him like me or otherwise… HALLOWEEN IS AMAZING! So whatever you choose to be, have fun!
I hope you enjoy looking at it and it inspires you to really just off and RUN with your hook and yarn and create amazing things!
In the future, I may do some videos to assist in the concept of freehanding so you can make your own art pieces! Would you give it a shot? What would like to learn or allow me to help demystify??!! Let me know on any of the social media sites I am linking below!
Much Love, Yarn, and Happy Halloween!
