The doll was inspired by J-Hope’s concept for his music video “More”. This has to be one of the favorite dolls I made so far. I love the theme behind it, it gave me the opportunity to work on something a bit darker than usual while keeping it cute.
I also made a custom doll stand for it with some wood and paint. Painting the checkers was the hardest part because I am not used to that medium. I also made the little box
I am still trying to find my signature style for dolls, so I always venture out trying different things when I create a pattern. But recently I have been more and more focused on finding my own style and the process of making this doll was part of it. I think that the next dolls I make will be based on this model even if I decide to improve on a few modifications.
I uploaded parts 3 and 4 of my JK Black Swan tutorial on YouTube. One for the face and chain, and the other for the jacket. The series is almost complete, I just need to work on the hair. The last tutorial will be available in the next couple of weeks.
The pattern for the body of the doll is available on ETSY. It can be used to make this doll or any amigurumi projects:
I have been very busy so it has been a while since my last post. I have been working on many things, but one project I particularly enjoyed is a doll I crocheted for a gift exchange with a friend who specializes in BTS fan art embroidery. I contacted her with the idea because I wanted her to make me a Hobi “Boy Meets Evil” era. She agreed and asked me for a Yoongi doll with a flower crown in exchange. So I spent some time working on that until now.
This is the original picture that she showed me, it’s from one of his photoshoots:
This is the doll I crocheted inspired by this look. It’s 14 inches tall, and I used half acrylic/half cotton yarn for the body and clothes.
The hair is made of wool yarn that I brushed with a pet brush. Wool is more expensive than acrylic but I find it easier to brush the fibers. The flower crown is made with wire and a crocheted band. I glued the flowers and leaves all around it.
I had to make a lot of flowers to cover the crown. It took me several days to complete everything but I think it turned out really cute. This was my first time doing this type of floral arrangement. The white and purple flowers were made using this YouTube tutorial (links at the end).
I think I will make a tutorial for the crown for anybody who is interested. I really enjoyed doing this doll, I cannot wait to give it to my friend!
The fish I made that was inspired by Jin’s Super Tuna song is now available as a free pattern. It’s my Christmas gift to all of you for being so kind and supportive of my craft. I really enjoyed crocheting it and I hope that you will like it too. I tried to make my instructions very clear with lots of photos, but if you have any issues along the way please do not hesitate to ask me!
