That's a very nice everything you have there...
I whipped up an amigurumi Minecraft Creeper due in part to the frequency of the request, my kid’s obsession with Minecraft and the general awesomeness of Creepers themselves. Unfortunately the construct wasn’t all that easy to come up with since the character is blockish and pixelated, two things very difficult to pull off with amigurumi worked in the round.
I cringed at the thought of sewing multiple panels together and I am not a fan of the alternating stripes of texture made when squares are worked by turning the work every row, so it took some reworkings and multiple attempts frogged but ultimately the shape came together nicely enough. For colour, I tried a few different ombre yarns and colour switching techniques but they didn’t look right so ultimately I settled on a solid murky green with grey for the feet and face. I have toyed with the idea of fabric paint to create some varied colours but without being able to achieve the pixelated symmetry, I’m not convinced it would look good. Plastic canvas is necessary to reinforce the shape and prevent over-sausagification of the pieces. The finished creeper is around 5 inches tall and works up fairly quickly.
