When I was young, I used to be quite a major pain in a certain part of my parent’s anatomy. I often wonder roughly how many times the pleasant thought of disowning me crossed their minds, and did they see this when they saw me? The Little Red DevilSo tell me, does this little kid in a Halloween costume remind you of a little trouble-on-two-legs in your life? If your answer is yes, why not make this little amigurumi devil for your darling little pain in the butt! ;)

The pattern for this 7 inch amigurumi includes instructions and step-by-step pictures on how to embroider amigurumi hair. Also included is the pattern for a pumpkin. What’s even better, it’s absolutely free! :D

Amigurumi Ivy for halloween

Tales of Twisted Fibers:

This is what my new friend V–who helped me test this pattern–has to say about Ivy, my Halloween themed amigurumi pattern. Thanks, V! :)

Originally posted on Mots et Pensées:

When Tales of twisted fibers called for testers for her new pattern, I jumped on the occasion! I was lucky to be chosen for the testing of Ivy.

I have to say that the pattern was Perfect and that there were not many things to fix really. I was so happy to make Ivy that I got carried away and made some mistakes! The colour I chose are not very halloweeny but my Ivy is nicely wicked. She is a protector of children, loves drinking tea with cornichon biscuit (Chon biscuit), and collects rabbits.

Halloween Amigurumi: Violet & Ivy

Halloween Special-Violet & Ivy-Amigurumi Pattern by Tales of Twisted Fibers Violet and Ivy are BFFs who do everything together, be it sitting next to each other in class or spending their weekends together doing fun things. And this Halloween, like every other Halloween before, they are going to go treat or tricking together. They have even bought identical outfits for the occasion!

Though the girls may have similar tastes in almost everything, there’s one thing that sets them apart. Ivy loves candies! She spends all her allowance on candies yet she can never have enough of them.

Violet, on the other hand, may not have much of a sweet tooth but she has a major obsession with tea, which is a bit worrisome. Normally, “tea” and “worrisome” are not words you’d use together in a sentence but I’m sure the next couple of pictures will convince you otherwise.

Calling pattern testers!

UPDATE (August 18, 2014): Thank you so much for your overwhelming response! I honestly wasn’t really expecting to hear from so many of you :) I’m now closing the call for submissions because, going by the sheer number of wonderful folks showing their interest in testing my patterns, I will probably have to come up with loads and loads of patterns and then some more! Thanks again for all your love and support. You all are too awesome! :)

Hello wonderful folks! Would you be interested in becoming a volunteer pattern tester for me? I’ve made premium patterns for a couple of new and extremely cute (if I may say so myself!) amigurumis and it’d be awesome if you signed up to test them for me :)- some of my old designs -

So what does a pattern tester do?

  • make the amigurumi, following the materials list and instructions as closely as possible
  • point out areas where the instructions are unclear or erroneous, and suggest improvements to the instructions if necessary
  • take photo(s) of your finished amigurumi and email them to me along with your feedback within the given time frame
  • though this is not mandatory, it would be great if you check for spelling and grammar errors

As soon as the pattern goes on sale, I’ll send you the final version of the pattern—besides loads and loads of digital hugs and eternal gratitude—to thank you for your help :)

Interested? Then fill in the form below.

SUBMISSIONS CLOSED

Thanks so much for your time. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Cheers!

Free Batman Amigurumi Pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersI made a promise on the grave of my parents that I would rid this city of the evil that took their lives. By day, I am Bruce Wayne, billionaire philanthropist. At night, criminals, a cowardly and superstitious lot, call me… Batman.” – Hush, Chapter 12: The End | story: Jeph Loeb | art: Jim Lee

Well, you know what! Batman dropped by my place today and he said to tell you he says hi! I was expecting to him to be a lot bigger and well, you know, muscular but the fella turned out to be just a little over 6.5 inches tall! And slightly rounder around the tum! Well, Christopher Nolan, you lied—Batman doesn’t look like Christian Bale at all!
