How about if we made playtime toy robots out of something soft, such as yarn? If you were to crochet a yarn robot, it might be called a CROBOT.
|Crobots: 20 Amigurumi Robots to Make|
Each Crobot pattern includes a color photo of the finished 'robot', an ingredients list showing you everything you need to match the photos in each section, along with instructions for creating them. Each Crobot is crocheted in sections, then joined together. The instructions also include a Blueprint page showing you how the sections fit together.
Many of these crobot creatures are decorated with beads, sequins, buttons, jewelery fasteners, and even nails & wire springs.
|Big Bot Created for an Anime Shop|
|Thinker I call Snow Bot|
But I crochet primarily for children, so my version of these crobots are finished with simple embroidery to keep them soft & safe all over. Whichever version you choose, these tiny Crobot robots are fun to make in crochet. They include a Space Mouse, a Cosmic Bear, a Dogbot, a Catbot, a Zombiebot, a Geisha Girl, a Ninjabot, an Alienbot and a dozen more. They each take very small amount of yarn and are fun to make.
A Few Examples of Crobots I Created from this Book
Sammy the stuffed snow bot robot doll measures just 5 inches tall. He's soft and sweet and ready-to-ship.
Matryoshka the Housekeeping Crobot
|Burgundy Babushka Robot Doll|
In the Crobot pattern book, Matryoshka is described as having a babushka mother and a robot for a father, making her quite technical at heart with the rivets, dials and switches shown in the pattern. I decided she'd make just a sweet babushka doll, so her features are embroidered. My version is round and soft and comfortable for little hands to hold.
My cute little Babuska doll is hand-crocheted in burgundy acrylic yarn with a white face with embroidered features. She is softly stuffed with polyfil toy stuffing and measures just 4 inches tall.
Burgundy Babuska doll will fit nicely in a pocket for a child to carry around to play with. She is very squeezable in her round shape and would fit perfectly on someone's desk at work as a cheerful presence. She could also make an excellent stress ball and wouldn't mind at all if you squeeze her. :)
Burgundy Babuska would also make a cute Valentine's Gift, stocking stuffer, or a cute gift for little girls for a birthday or anytime gift.
|Geisha Girl Amigurumi Doll|
She measures 6 inches tall and has a sweet hand-embroidered face.
Her elaborate hairstyle has red ties and she is wearing little sandals on her feet.
Geisha Girl Doll is hand-crocheted in acrylic yarn in black and white with a Sunshine print Kimono.
She is filled with new polyfil and is ready-to-ship to a toybox near you or be a friendly companion on your desktop.
A few other examples of Crobots (a Baby Bot and a Sumo Robot Doll) I have made from this book are shown above. These have sold, but can be recreated by a request through my Etsy Shop, Coastal Crochet Crafts.
|Crobots Craft Book is Available on Amazon|
This is a unique and interesting little crochet pattern book for crafters who like to make little dolls, especially with a Sci-Fi or Steampunk theme to them.
