80's Flashback: Rainbow Brite!

This project was a special request from a coworker who wanted to surprise his wife with a blast from the past on Valentine's day. I was a little nervous since I had never made it before and had little time for mistakes. Luckily I found a great pattern on by ShadyCreations. Check out all her lovely patterns! The only changes I made was the color of the arm bands and the size of the safety eyes. I used slightly bigger eyes. I had a hard time finding the perfect little stars to make it complete, but I found some acrylic stickers that did the job. I was happy with my final piece and so was the recipient!

Yoda, Yoda, Yoda

You've seen him everywhere so why not here? One of my best friends asked me to crochet a life sized baby Yoda for her, so I jumped on the bandwagon. I found a pattern and was able to snag it before it was taken down. I got the pattern from by Allison Hoffman and her blog can be found at She is super talented and has designed many characters.

Here is my finished piece made with Allison's pattern:

I also made some smaller ones using another pattern from I made a few minor changes with the eyes and face. 

There are a lot of patterns out there for this little guy. Have you made one?
