Jayne Cobb Amigurumi

Okay, everyone wanted to see Jayne the most, so here he is! The hero of Canton in the flesh (well, yarn):

Ta da! He has his hat--of course. We already had the colors, too, because the boy wanted to knit a Jayne hat for himself. That didn't turn out to well. And yes, I crocheted the hat, but only because I cannot knit with double pointed needles to save my life. And the little poof ball on top! I like that part.

And of course, where would Jayne be without his favorite gun? Probably dead somewhere, but that's not the point. Here's Vera, made out of sculpey of course, hooked onto Jayne via a strap around his chest. His belt has little pockets on it, too. And his belt buckle is actually functional! How crazy is that?
He doesn't have much in the way of accessories, but the ones that he does have I think are really great. He even has his little wrist cuff! And grenades, of course. I was worried about how he would turn out, being kind of stubbly with really short hair (which is really hard to imitate in crochet and felt) but I think he is really great looking.

Anyway, Jayne is the first Firefly crew member we have pictures of, but there are eight more to go! Stay tuned.

Jayne is so cute! I think I've already said that, but it's worth repeating. Can I request a post about Mal and/or a picture of him from the front? I looked on flickr, but there's only the side profile shot of him. I love my captain.

Oh my! I am in love. I will have to buy this some time. I will save up every penny I make and some day maybe I to can have a Jayne of my very own. Seriously he is fantastic. You are a master. I am not worthy.

That figure is perfect actually it could look great over my car dashboard, or it could be the perfect gift for my brother.
