My Sackboy crochet doll is almost finished — I still need to pick up a zipper, contrasting yarn for his stitches, and black felt for his mouth, but here he is all put together and wearing a festive scarf / self-adhesive elastic bandage. His eyes are a little ghetto because I haven’t had time to get to the store for a set of matching buttons and wound up using one half-spherical black one that was perfect, and one flattened pink disk button that I “enhanced” with a black Sharpie marker.
Anyway, this wasn’t that tough, and I’ll probably be making a small army of them in the near future as gifts for my gamer friends. Final pics (after zipper, mouth, and stitches) soon.
If you want to make your own, all you need are a basic knowledge of crochet (single crochet, working in the round), yarn, a crochet hook (size 5 or 6 – $1.50 or so at your local Ghetto Mart), one large-eyed, blunt-ended tapestry needle (also available cheaply at Ghetto Mart), and the Sackboy crochet pattern by RichmondArt at Etsy.com.
