Amigurumi- Working Without a Pattern
Working Without a Pattern

Hi everyone! I'm TheSmall-Stuff and what I love is to make amigurumi, but I'm never patient enough to use a pattern. Because of this, I've found and developed a bunch of techniques that I use while designing the dolls that I make! What I'm going to try to do is explain my thought process in making a doll, and share some of the techniques that I use to form the shapes and the details in a character. Sorry it's long, but I tried to use lots of pictures. I hope this helps! Lets start :la:
1: Planning
Shapes are key!
    When you go to make a doll, you need to pick it apart in your head and see all of the shapes that make the character. Sometimes it's easier to draw out a diagram of all of the pieces that go into the doll, to get a good idea of how it fits together. While you're planning, it's good to be thinking "How do I make this?" while you choose shapes. However

Hey guys!
Long time, but an important message! We are fundraising to print our Hello Albertosaurus comic and need your help!
We are offering some pretty awesome perks like enamel pins, stickers, collector cards and watercolour commissions by me! So if you want a discounted commission original by me you can get one and help out our fundraising at:…

I know not everyone will want to preorder the book but even shares and spreading the word can help as well!
Thank you everyone, you've always been good too me even if I only pop on once in a while.

I have a hard time getting a lot of paintings done (worth posting on DA anyway), I do alot of doodling, quick sketches and paintings and post them on Instagram, and a lot of my time is preoccupied by comic work I cant usually post online. But if you want most of my art you can see me on the grams! <-- just me… < --- Gurukitty Studio (so a mix of me and my sister

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
