100 Projects in 1 Year! Perry the Platypus Project!!!

Well, I've done another project! Which I am really excited about....So I'm going to get right down to it.

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.

So this is basically all you need, other than your hook. OH! and you will definitely need something to help you keep up with what row you're on. I use a paper clip :-)

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.
