View Full Version : FO's: Bad Juju AND Big Bad Juju

03-29-2007, 03:10 AM
Last week my daughter drew a pic of a doll with a round head, rounded hands and feet, a heart on the chest and X's for eyes. She asked if I could make something like that. I decided to look around and see if I could find a pattern to modify. Instead of finding a pattern to modify, I found Bad Juju (http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain05/badjuju.htm). Exactly what she was looking for.

Except for the fact that Bad Juju is small and she wanted something bigger. So I decided to see if I could make it bigger. It's ok. I'm not thrilled with the way it turned out when I made it bigger, but I wasn't thrilled with the way it turned out in the first place. She likes it though and I suppose that's all that matters.

I do like the doll. It's cute. The problem on the first one is that there are HUGE holes after you take the arm stitches off. I fixed that on the big one by picking up a couple stitches on each side of the arms. But I really liked how rounded the first ones head was. On the bigger version his head came out kinda bunchy or something. Definitely not as nicely rounded.

Jan, I forgot to say thanks for linking me to that crochet provisional cast on. It was WAYYY easier. So thanks. :D

Those are adorable! I want one! I agree with Jeanius, maybe you could add more stuffing to the Bid Bad Juju to get his head more rounded. :shrug:

I stuffed his head as much as I could, but I do think the stuffing might be the problem. I used a different stuffing for Big Bad Juju that was much softer.
