Today I booked my train tickets for Brighton Pride! I’m really excited, but as I’m not flamboyant or brave enough to dress bold or colourful, I thought I’d settle for something smaller.
I used a smaller hook than normal and played around a little with the pattern. Miss Pride could act as a keyring, but I like her as a handbag accessory.
Today I’ve ordered some keychains so I will soon be able to make good quality keyrings. At the moment I’ve used this chain from a handbag, so future creations will have better quality ones.
The wool is so soft and light, I love it! The colours are amazing too, I finished this rather late and so took a photo as soon as I could. In the light she is so much more impressive!
Will attach this to my handbag tomorrow and see how it looks! It’s small, but I hope it gets noticed at Pride. She’s too cute not to!
When I first started making amigurumi I wanted to reflect who I was in the creations I made. I love the superhero pattern because superheroes are strong, courageous and want to make the world a better place. I couldn’t think of a better person/animal to place the Pride flags on.. (Although cats would have been good!)
My space to create! Well… Amigurumi is a fairly flexible craft, so I tend to watch shows in my bed or on the couch… But I like having a craft table regardless.
I love the little boots! And I love working from the feet up to the body rather than vice versa.
Changing colours is fun 🙂 My favourite part is the body, different colours for different flags. And the finishing piece looks a little like…
Little Pride Superhero! Cute little ears, mask and Cape. I loved making him and know that he’s ready to dance and take on the world, fighting crime and spreading love.
I have (and am currently working on) different flags, such as bisexual, pan sexual and asexual. I love seeing them all together as a family! Future post on that coming soon!
