Crochet

Sparkle Jr. (Version 1)

Initially, when I decided I wanted to learn how to crochet amigurumi, I thought I would make a ton of miniature versions of my dog, Sparkle, and sell them on Etsy.  Well, I never seemed to get around to figuring out how to crochet a Boston Terrier.  Over the past couple of years, I’ve seen a few on Pinterest, but none that I could get the pattern for or that actually looked like her.  Well, a couple weeks ago I was inspired to try.

This inspiration is owed to a friend who really loves my dog. I seem to be more motivated when the item is a present. I created as I went and tried some new things along the way (posable hind legs). She sits up, sits, and stands! I think I did alright! I was even able to achieve the oh-so-cute head cock and stubby tail. I paid close attention to Sparkle’s markings and she’s a pretty close match to the real thing. I already have ideas for my next one.  Let’s hope it doesn’t take me another couple of years to do it.

Now, here are several photos of Sparkle and Sparkle Jr. for your viewing pleasure:
