Celeste Madeline Amigurumi




A few notes before we begin



-While creating this amigurumi you will work in continuous rounds, unless told otherwise.

-When I am creating an amigurumi based on a certain character I like to look at reference pictures of the character I am creating. It really helps when assembling the pieces and making the facial features!

-Your finished amigurumi should measure about 14 inches tall, depending on yarn type and tension.

Assembly

1.       Slip the Jacket over the top half of the body. Use the tail to sew the bottom of the jacket to the body.



2.       Sew the feet to the open-ended bottom of the legs. See finished pictures for reference.

3.       To support the head, take your wire and fold it in half. Insert the wire into the body through the opening at the top. Trim wire as needed so it doesn’t poke through the body. Leave a portion of the wire sticking out of the top for the head to fit over.

4.       Sew the haircap onto the head. Don’t sew it directly onto the top of the head, place it slightly towards the back at an angle. Keep in mind that the side of the head with increases at round 14 is supposed to be the front side of the head.

5.       Sew the head onto the top of the body.

6.       Sew the arms to the side of the body. If you plan on using the strawberry, sew the arms at a forward reaching angle so she can hold the strawberry. See the finished photos for reference.

7.       Sew or glue the strawberry into place between the arms.

8.       To give Madeline her hair you will root individual hairs to the hair cap. Cut long strands of orange yarn approximately 16 inches long.  To root the hair, fold the strand in half, stick your hook through a stitch in the hair cap, grab the strand with the hook, pull through the stitch, yarn over and pull the strands through. See the pictures below for reference.

Be sure to make the hair toward the front of the head nice and thick!


9.       The last thing to do is to make the face. I would recommend looking at reference photos of Madeline’s face while doing this. It really helps to get the details and proportions correct.

For the face, I used a combination of craft felt and loose wool felt for her eyes, cheeks, and nose. All the details are needle felted on.

***NOTE: I did not include the pattern for the backpack as seen in the photos. Sorry!


All finished!
