First of all, I found this awesome site that has TONS of free patterns...and as I was perusing I found this Perry the Platypus pattern!!! Confession time: I love Phineas and Ferb. My roomie Mandy introduced me to it about 3 years ago when we first lived in a dorm room together, and I llllllove it so much.
This was my first attempt at amigurumi, I'm practicing for another project for Hello Ladies that you will probably see soon on Project Baby! :-)
Here's the link to the pattern I used for Perry.
It was very easy to follow, which I enjoyed because often times I can't follow patterns written by others.
I turned on Tango and Cash (one of my fav classic Kurt movies - don't judge me)...and I made all the pieces I needed.
Here he is! Perry the Platypus! :-)
Somehow, I didn't take any pics of his eyes before I attached them, but they are the easiest part.Also, I didn't add the feet because that was the only part of the pattern that I didn't understand. Honestly, if it hadn't been 1:00am and I wasn't feeling lazy, I could have figured it out. It definitely was operator error and not the pattern.
The pattern also has instructions for his hat! I will be making that sometime soon. I really just wanted to get Perry done and have my first frankenstein amigurumi under my belt.
Now that I made this for my roomie Mandy, I know I'll have to make one for sister Mandy haha because she also has a fierce love of Phineas and Ferb!
yay! I made my first amigurumi and I love it! I'll be making lots more I think :-)
Also, I finished another project, that I posted on the HL blog as a part of Project Baby! It's a cute baby beanie! Go check it out.
