Description:

One partner, one SPECIAL amigurumi.

Make an amigurumi poo. This is a spin off of another amigurumi swap I did. You could also make a TP roll if you are so inclined.

It should be crochet. Knit is good, too. I'm pretty flexible on everything soft, to tell the truth. (that means felt, too)

There's tons of time for this so do the best you can. Give me a buzz if you're stuck and I'll help as best as I can. Poo is Poo so you can start before partners are assigned.

This is for experienced and new softies. I will be checking and communicating with anyone I think is borderline on flakiness. If you've never made an amigurumi or anything like this, I am here to help

I reserve the right to ban people I think are not good for the other swappers in the swap. And I will. If you flake I will post your name in the forums. If you're having a hard time with the swap, you must communicate to your swap partner. Communicating with me will help keep your rep clean, too. If you don't send and you don't communicate, that's flaking.

I won't tell you how or when to award hearts or how to rate, but you should keep in mind if someone is new to amigurumi, be nice. Don't be a mean little shit, OK? Nobody likes that and I don't want it in my swaps, K? M'kay.

So does it have to be strictly yarn or can we use felt and fleece? I don't do Ami's much at all :(

Hehehe, gotta love it! :)

This is the greatest idea. When I'm sure I have time to finish, I'll sign up. I've already designed the TP roll in my head! :D

Carotte 08/26/2008 #

Same question as weeatcrayons, cause I really don't know how to crochet, tried once but got nowhere.. But I do know how to use felt and fleeces!

Guitartists 08/26/2008 #

LMAO I'm going to have to make sure I CAN follow the pattern before I join the swap.... but if all goes well, I think everyone I know might be getting one for Christmas! Hahahaha!

Carotte 08/26/2008 #

Me again, (I'm a newbie and just want to make sure to understand everything before I signup to do it right).

  • is it only for happy poo or can we make a sad poo, a sick poo..
  • does it have to be the exact same patern (or same shape if we can make it with fleeces/felt)
  • what size should it be?
  • is it international?

I'm posting it here in case anyone had the same questions,

girthta 08/26/2008 #

It needs to be poo... and it needs to be soft.

It can be crocheted, knitted, fleece or felt. (and please save the hate mail about how amigurumi is only strictly positively always crocheted and never ever anything else because it's MY swap and MY rules :D)

You do not have to use this pattern. You could make poo many ways. Please don't be disgusting unless you think your partner would like that. It is supposed to be kawaii. You could make Mr Happy from South Park, I think that would work.

As for size, it should be something you'd be proud to find in your own can! It can be a happy, sad, funny, lonely, stinky, scarey, embarrassed, horny, badassed, holiday themed, gloomy, Nightmare before Christmas, decorated with pieces of corn- whatever you're into. Have fun- #1 rule in all my swaps!

Dorsia- I would love love love for you to be in this. I can move the dates around if people want more time for it and if everyone is in agreement- no problem with that at all. For an experienced crocheter the pattern should take a nice evening watching South Park to complete. No sweat.

And yea, I have the toilet paper roll pattern in my head already, too. Be interested to see what you come up with!

Cheers!

dorsia 08/28/2008 #

Haha, watching South Park! How appropriate. :D

weeatcrayons 08/29/2008 #

horny poo? lmao

Guitartists 08/29/2008 #

LMAO Well, I have completed my first poo! The pattern was easy enough :D I'm definitely joining.... one question though... how large should this poo be?

Here's my first poo! :D Though, I'm making a different one for the swap ;)

girthta 09/ 1/2008 #

What a lovely pile of POO! Nice job!

lace 09/ 9/2008 #

LOL..that is funny

OMG I love amigurumi if anyone would be kind and swap me one I"d love it i can't crochet boohoo

ashbirdlady 09/13/2008 #

How about a corny poo? I have a couple other ideas that i will save for my partner. Any good patterns out there besides the orginal?

Guitartists 09/21/2008 #

Got my poo done! The kids think it's cute... hope my partner likes it! :D Now to find a safe spot for it until partners are assigned :D

craftyarmywife 09/22/2008 #

Ok, I think I'm going to have to sign up... Been having too many "I feel poopy" days lately. Maybe making a cute poo will cheer me up, and then I can pass the cheery poo onto someone else! LOL!

eyeskater 09/27/2008 #

Um...where does one find a pattern for poo? 'cause I might like to take a bash at it.

cakebomb 09/28/2008 #

I'm really excited for this!! uhm, I've never done this before but it looks like loads of fun. My sister crochets, so maybe she could help me. Thanks for making a pattern for this. hahahaa I just need to find some string now..

eyeskater 09/28/2008 #

I would prefer a poo to a t.p. roll.

girthta 09/28/2008 #

Hey, just shoot me a pm if you're stuck. I'll help if possible. You are welcome to email me, too, at girthta at gmail.com

eyeskater 09/28/2008 #

Ahh...I see the pattern link now...wasn't looking closely before.

quidditchmom 09/29/2008 #

this is the cutest swap ever. I'm just now learning amigurumi so I wouldn't want to send a crappy poo. Next time for sure!

girthta 09/29/2008 #

hehehe, "crappy poo" hehehe

craftyarmywife 09/30/2008 #

Whoo-hoo! I know what kind of poo I'll be making!

So naughty!
