Fire Sprite by SadDaysCrochet Fire Sprite by SadDaysCrochet
I do love making sprites. I think I've found a new way to do them, too! I made a base then latch-hooked yarn onto it and brushed it out. I like this method much more than using fluffy yarn. I think I'll make a pattern for these guys after the dwarven helm...

This guy was supposed to be for the :iconcrafting-on-camera: elements challenge, but I didn't finish in time. Actually I did finish in time, but some days the internet is too intimidating to deal with so I didn't upload it on time.

This guy is actually my second try at a fire sprite- the first I put in my scraps:

It was too big and the fluff was too thick and the color transitions were too abrupt. All in all: not cute enough.
I plan to do more of these guys in a variety of colors- not just fire. They're quick, and they're a lot of fun. I am actually considering using them as art trade material....

Thank you so much! :love: I never get sick of sprites- I think I'm gonna make a series of them... :XD: Something about fuzzy things with big eyes. It's unbearable.

So did you do it by crochetting a ball then latch hooking some fuffy yarn around it?
What kind of yarn is that? this is really neat

Basically, only it's not fluffy yarn! It's just regular acrylic. I brushed it out into fine yarn fuzz with a wire brush! It's such a fun technique!
