Been a while hasn’t it? I’ve been working longer hours in the run-up to Christmas so between that, Christmas shopping and planning a fish tank install (an entry which shall be saved for another day) there hasn’t been room for much else. Until yesterday, when I got the time to put the finishing touches to this little critter:


Meet Kittybat. He’s a little blue cat, with bat wings. Just because I could. Amigurumi animals are just made up out of simple shapes, so I wanted to have a go at making one myself from scratch without a pattern, and this is the result. It’s taken me a few months to put together, it’s the biggest toy I’ve attempted to make so far so my project wanderlust had me working on a few other smaller things that have already been mentioned on this blog in the meantime, but he’s finally done!

I think the wings could do with some wire support to stop them falling about all over the place. It took 4 attempts to get the second wing right, that’s what I get for not writing down what I did for the first one. I recorded the pattern as I went so maybe I’ll stick that on here a bit later.
