Princess Leia Amigurumi

in WORLD OF XPILARlast month
Regards! This time I share the tutorial in English to make an amigurumi in the shape of Princess Leia, the translation of my long tutorials like this one takes me some time, however I do it with all the passion I have for people who are fond of knit that does not speak Spanish can follow the instructions and do so. I give the exact details of each round of fabric, following the abbreviations they can do it without any problem.

Make a complete round of s.s., close and leave a long thread to sew it to the waist with a few stitches.





Assembly

Fill the legs, arms, body and head. To sew it is necessary to do it with the threads that were left when finishing the pieces, with the help of the large buttonhole needle. Sew the legs to the body, ensuring that they are as aligned as possible to the side openings of the skirt. Sew the arms to the body. Finally sew the head. Place the hair on the head and sew it. Fill the bows and sew them on the sides of the head, making sure they protrude a little, as if they were covering the ears. Sew the hood to the back of the head with 6 stitches or more to secure. With beige yarn, sew the two wooden beads or pearls to the face to make the eyes. Embroider the mouth with a little is pink thread.

This amigurumi Princess Leia is simply beautiful, I think in this case the complexity of the stitches increased a lot, giving full of details. I've enjoyed this character from my childhood times, but she has been passing through generations!!

Thanks for share on the World of Xpilar!!


It is true this amigurumi requires a little more experience with knitting, however, following the instructions carefully, a person who knows the basics of crochet could do it. As they are more details it would only take more time. Leia is always an icon and that is why I really like doing these characters that we all remember fondly.
