The first time I laid eyes on this big smooshy squoooshie huggable guy from Big Hero 6 I fell in love. I’ve never written my own amigurumi pattern before, but I needed to make a Baymax. Right. This. Second.
I grabbed a notebook and scribbled out a drawing and paid attention to proportions and calculated dimensions and all of this before my first cuppa joe at 5:30 on a Saturday morning…before I had the presence of mind to remember that I had no idea what I was doing.
Head. Easypeasy. Legs. Easypeasy. The body shape…little harder, but still doable. The ARMS, however. Two weeks, a couple of different ideas and a bunch of false starts, and an accidental new project coming up soon. I think I finally nailed it.
He’s rather cute, don’t you think?
I’m so proud of my first pattern writing project. I was a little nervous to release it into the wild, let alone sell it, but I’m not going to let those little self-doubt gremlins get in the way this time. I hope the version of Baymax I gave life to puts a smile on someone’s face. =)
If you’d like the pattern, click on the photo below to go to my Etsy shop.
I hope you all are having a lovely weekend! The weather in my little corner of the world is absolutely gorgeous right now and I am very much looking forward to a little hiking through the woods and crunching through leaves this afternoon.
