I have so much trouble with pokeballs!! D: do you have any advice to offer? I've used the invisible decrease, but the white end still ends up with holes no matter how tight I crochet it, and I don't know how to properly connect the top and bottom halves when I do it that way. @_@;
you're Master Ball looks REALLY awesome, which is why I'm asking you :>
Yay! A fellow crocheter! XD And no worries! I actually didn't decrease with the pokeballs, because the finish is not nice even with the invisible decrease. What I did was making two halves and sewed them together to give it a smoother finish! And I simply sewed the two halves together at the black bit as it won't be so apparent as well : ) Give it a try and see how it goes! : D Hope that helped! ^w^
I'm relatively new when it comes to crochet; it was a spontaneous decision I made last October, and since I picked it up so fast, I decided to keep at it. I don't understand all of the stitches and I can't read patterns all that well, so I tend to figure things out by myself. Even though I didn't completely understand it, what you said really helped me! I FINALLY made a successful pokeball!! *radiates happiness* I'm going to make more and post pictures once I'm through. For the button, I personally want to use felt because I like the look of that better. Thank you so much!!
That's great though! I started to crochet because I once saw a book on how to crochet Rilakkuma and though to myself: "Wow! That's amazing! I wanna do that too!" So I taught myself how to crochet via websites and YouTube xD That has been 3 years ago now and I still feel like I haven't learnt everything yet xD But that's what I love about it lol And I look forward to your pictures! I'll watch you as soon as I can get to my computer (using my phone at the moment xD) Yeah, go for it I try to make most of my things with yarn. Only when there are details or things too small to crochet that I go for the felt xD Then again, I use felt for the eyes of my brain slug... xD Well, guess it's different in each case lol Happy crocheting to you! BTW, a friend of mine would looooooove the umbreon you made xD
I started because I saw a TON of crochet plushies at our local anime convention, and since the only shiny umbreon there wasn't for sale, I decided I'd make one for myself, and I haven't stopped since I like to use felt for the eyes, usually, and certain other things. Other than that, I usually just stick to yarn. Thank you for the watch I'll watch you as well! About your friend, maybe s/he and I can work something out in the future
I'm sure she would love it! x3 If she were to ask me to crochet a shiny umbreon, I wouldn't know where to start XD LOL Aw! Thanks for the watch! x3 Let's keep crocheting forever! *raises my crochet hook*
That's the anime/manga/game/sci-fi/everything else convention that happens twice a year in London XD I go there every time since I live in London (conventiently, but also worryingly since I always leave with an empty wallet). Aw shame! Then I'll definitely put up some pictures and maybe even a video where she will throw it around XD
