Alright everyone, we finally finished the character we've been working on for the past couple of days! I'm so excited about him. Here he is!
Captain Jack Sparrow! He is probably the most detail oriented amigurumi we've made so far, and we had to edit some of the stuff we were going to put on him. But he does have his compass, a bird's claw, two belts, a sword, his pistol, beads in his hair, bones in his hair, coins in his hair (and lots of other stuff I tied in there) and his hat and his jacket and his vest. Whew! That's a lot of stuff.
I kind of like him without his hat on. He has so many accessories going on here, I love how kind of crazy it makes him look. But he still turned out super cute. Can you believe those belt buckles are made out of sculpey? Boyfriend is getting really good at making belt buckles (and rum bottles!).
This is the first time we've done a fabric other than felt (for the fabric around his waist and his head scarf) and it wasn't too bad. I generally avoid felt because I hate to seam things, but these two weren't that bad. The jacket and vest are still felt though, and they both have all of the details painted on. I love the little buttons on the jacket, I think they turned out great.
Well, that's all I can say about it now. Check out my flickr page for more pictures, I uploaded a ton of them. This Jack is also for sale here if anyone is interested (the one we made for ourselves is safely tucked away, and not going anywhere!) I am so pleased with how he turned out, I hope you guys like him!
