Shuurei amigurumi

I’ve really been in a crocheting mood lately. It might be because classes are in session and my free time now comes pre-sliced in small chunks. It might also be because my brain is spastic and is just finding it easier to concentrate on smaller crafty projects right now. ^_^

Anyway, my current anime obsession continues to be Saiunkoku Monogatari (I’m up to season 2, episode 17 as of this writing), thus the Shuurei amigurumi:

I think she turned out kawaii, if I do say so myself. ^^ Even my mom thinks so, and she doesn’t watch anime. ^_^;; She’s cuter in person, actually. I took a few liberties with the outfit and I couldn’t find yarn and felt colors exactly accurate to the original. But the only thing I think I would change is making those stitches under the chin with peach, not pink. I wasn’t planning ahead. (And I didn’t notice the bow/sash was crooked in the picture, oops.)

Of course now I want to make ami’s of all the main characters, but I always say things like that and get distracted before I ever get around to it. *major sweatdrop* I did start Kouyuu, though, and I do also want a Ryuuki to go with Shuurei (he’s my favorite character ^_^). For now, homework calls.
