I shed an actual tear as I tied on his little bow. We went to Disneyland recently and it was great… but the crowds… 😤 I related with a lot of the grumpy faced depictions of Donald I saw throughout the park. 😅 So here he is! My grumpy little spirit animal! 🥰 #crochet #amigurumi #disney #donaldduck #disneyland #handmade #crochetaddict #fiberart #fiberartist #instacrochet #crochetofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram
Much like Slinky Dog in Toy Story, his body fundamentally includes a slinky. Using a regular highlighter pen, I wrapped the wire around it to form the body. Then I wrapped the wire around a toothpick to form the tail!
Harry Potter isn’t Harry without his glasses! I used it first on Velma from Scooby Doo using regular paper clips, which are actually pretty difficult to bend.
Elektra’s Sai! That was fun to make - may do a tutorial on how to use wires to make it later on. I also used similar techniques to make Jon Snow’s sword.
4) Limb support
I used the wires internally for many 4-legged creatures I made - to shore up the limbs for support. Just like Scooby Doo here and Slinky dog above - even though it can’t be seen, the wires are pretty important to keep them standing up.
So there’s that! Even paper clips are useful too you know…
