Despicable Me Lucy Doll

It's Lucy! The lady with the lipstick Taser. Yup!  :-)
She was great to work on! At first I didn't know if I should have her in her dress or in her coat. But I eventually decided on the coat since that is how we first see her in the movie. 

Her high heels gave me trouble at first. I finally just decided to go for it and see how they turn out and I was happy with the result. I crocheted her leg to a point then crocheted the base of the shoe. Next I added a chain for the heel and sewed a stitch for the two straps. 

The second hardest part in designing her was her hair. In the movie, her hair was in a loopy bun. But I couldn't think of a way to do it with out the loops falling out eventually. After consolting my mom(she helps A LOT with deciding on what to do), we decided on a braided bun. I attached yarn to form a  super long ponytail (it reached her feet(I guess you could say she is the "Modern Rapunzel"(Ooooo! Double! Now triple parentheses!))) then braided it and wound it up. 

Lucy took the longest to do but only because I couldn't decide on what to do. Curse you indecisiveness! But I love how she turned out! :-)

Despicable Me Gru Doll

Gru, the lovable bad guy from Despicable Me. His arms, legs, and head are all sewn onto his torso. His scarf (which is REALLY long) is wrapped around his head then sewn on. Gru is not Gru without his scarf. ;-)  I loved working on Gru! My favorite part was doing his nose. It was fun getting him together and showing my family saying "Look! Here's his nose!" Then "Look! Here is his head!" which would then set on the sofa until the next night when I could crochet the rest of him. Poor little body-less Gru! But now he is not body-less. In fact he is 15 inches tall! Yay! Anyway, lets look at some pictures! :-)
