Since Brian turned out so well, I went on to the next white cartoon dog I could think of, which was K.K. Slider!! As a religious Animal Crossing DS player, how could I resist not making him?
I was unsure at first how K.K. would turn out. I modeled him after the phone charm from one of those candy machines. Here’s a picture of him, in case you don’t know what he looks like.
He sits with legs crossed, and holds a guitar – 2 challenges I was totally not looking forward to crocheting. I had never crocheted legs that bend or have joints before, so I had no idea how I was going to do it and how it would turn out. I also had no idea how to make a guitar, since it has sharp edges and a funny hourglass shape. Yet, like with all my other projects, I just winged it and “forced” things to look good. So, after much thinking and pondering, this is what I came up with.
Note how he has no tail…I got too lazy!! and his tail is barely visible anyways.
Look!! the legs really bend the way they’re supposed to!! I was so pleased with them. The guitar was alright…not as sharp as I would have wanted it to be, but I couldn’t think of any better ways to make it other than making a round gourd shape and then smashing it to look flat. Oh! and the cute little stool he’s sitting on, I made my dad make for me by gluing pieces of wood he cut out.
All together, K.K. is just tooooo cute~~! The face I had my little sis help me with, cus she’s truly talented at capturing the essences of characters and being laser precise with her felt cutting. The painting in the background of this photo shoot was also painted by her – isn’t she so talented?!
So, with 2 cute white cartoon dogs down, I will be moving on to my next one. My dream of capturing cute cartoon white dogs in 1 picture will soon become true! Can you guess what dog I’m going for next?? Stay tuned!
