I recently saw that Stylecraft were looking for sample makers, particularly those who are interested in amigrumi, to help them make samples for photo shoots. Well obviously I was interested so I sent off for details and to register my interest.
I have been advised I will be required to send in some examples of my work which will be returned upon inspection. Well since I have started my gift pile early I have some hats and such that I can send, but I didnt have any amigrumi to hand since it all ends up being gifted, so I had a sit down and a think about what Ami Projects I have been thinking about doing recently, and this is what I decided to make. A Pachimari.
For those of you who dont know, a Pachimari is a half onion half octopus monster which features in mine and my fiance’s favourite video game, Overwatch. It is supposed to looks like this.
Now, I appreciate that its not entirely accurate but considering I made it up as I went along I think I did a good job. And the main thing is that it demonstrated my Amigrumi Skills quite nicely. Also, My Fiance was very pleased with it when I gave it to him on his return from Berlin.
