My latest micro. He is 1.5cm/0.6in long. Made with sewing thread and a 0.4mm hook.
Beautifully shaped. He's a sweetie. ^_^
That is absolutely incredible. I'm impressed with how small it is.
Micro-crochet is always feels so impressive! I love his little face, did you have to use a actually sewing needle to get those little details in? It is also awesome that you were able to give him some real shape similar to the polar bear. Although I just can't get over his little ears!
Thank you. I use a beading needle, size 12, to join the different parts and to stitch in the detail. Beading needles tend to be thinner and longer than other sewing needles so I find they're easier to use with these projects. I'm glad you like the ears! I'm very proud of him though I do wish there was a bit more definition in the paws. Something to strive for with the next one
You're very welcome OH a beading needle! That makes total sense haha. I can imagine that the longer and thinner the needles is is quite a big help. Although weirdly enough whenever I hand sew things I tend to use a very small sewing needles, just so I can do more with more thread. You should be very proud of the little guy since he spectacular ! The ears just are so darn cute! I'm now excited to see our next creation And I think his paws are swell. You could have sewed them close to make them more flat, or at least sewed in-between to give him toes...Although I know he is small so I'm unsure if there would be enough room for toes.
Yes, I know what you mean about the shorter needles and I do swap out the longer needles for some shorter size 12 needles for some parts but I definitely have a tendency to jab myself more often with the shorter ones I'd like to make a standing bear in the future, maybe a grizzly, so I'll see about trying a different method for the paws. I'm thinking they might work better as separate pieces but we'll see. It'll be fun to experiment
I'm the same way, since I tend to over think the size of the needle and end up stabbing myself with shorter ones xD
I feel like if the feet are a separate piece it may allow for a stronger support on the bear. Since you can use as much thread that you need to put it together, allow for a stronger hold on the whole piece. That's only my guess but Good luck on your different methods, it's going to be a lot of experimenting!
Wow, that must have taken up lots of time!
It looks totally awesome!
It looks totally awesome!
