I’m not even sure how it happened, but somehow I became completely obsessed with this little West End show called Bat Out Of Hell and decided to make gifts for the cast. The whole cast.
I love making amigurumis, and seeing as the characters all have very distinctive costumes, this seemed the perfect medium.
So, this is what I’ve been busy with these laat few months, but I had a lot of fun making them and got tons of compliments for them, so here they are in all their glory!
I might write a short pattern/guide for making these, if there’s interest.
-disclaimer: I don’t take commissions but will occasionally make items for friends or as trades, and for charity auctions/events. Feel free to message/email me with requests but please don’t take it personal if I don’t reply.

I recently bought a set of Cthulhu Dice and was very excited to receive the green and yellow version (as it said it would ship out a random colour and I really wanted something green), but since the game doesn’t come with any box or bag but simply in a blister pack, I immediately set to task to crochet a Cthulhu shaped bag to hold my game!
It turned out just big enough to hold all items, but I’ll try to make one slightly bigger so there’s a bit of wiggle room and I’m planning to make it a purchasable pattern in my online shop, so keep your eyes peeled!
I’ve finally managed to work some more on perhaps my largest project to date, the wonderful Rocket! He has both legs and one arm now.
He’s coming along so well. I completely removed both his arms and did them all over again because his feet and legs turned out so much better than the first version of his arms and I needed them to match.
I think this is one of the most important things when working on a new freehand work, you have to be willing to completely unravel and start over again.
I’m hopeful I’ll be able to finish the second arm and start on his jumpsuit before Halloween!
Finally found a way to #crochet Rocket’s foot in a way I find satisfactory. I must have continuously unravelled and redone this sucker at least fifteen times in the past week and a half. On to the calves and knees, let’s hope those turn out to be easier!
