Now on to my latest WIP:
1st of I will state that I am def a product of the 80's...what does that mean you ask? Well I tend to love all things totally cheezy and rad including 80's cartoons. If you are like me you might agree that cartoons today just aren't the same as they were in the 80's. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE me a good animated feature, including anime, esp if it is from Studio Ghibli. I am just saying that some recent cartoons just don't do it for me.
Ahh...the Saturday morning Cartoon. Thinking back to my youth there wasn't a week that went by when I was growing up that I did not wake up on Saturday morning to start my weekend off with a daily dose of cheezeball cartoons, and frankly I miss them...From Fraggle Rock and Rainbow Brite, to He-Man and The Smurfs; From Gummi Bears and Transformers, to Inspector Gadget and even Jem! Wow! I feel like I just got hit head on by a virtual Mack truck of nostalgia! So....I came up with the idea this week to go back in my little time machine.
My 1st project in my line of 80's cartoon Amigurumi is the ever-immortal "Papa Smurf." I figure what better place to start than with the 542 year old leader of the smurf village!
Well...that is it so far. I am super excited about this project. If you would like to follow the project closer and for more details on patterns and materials used please check me out on Ravelry! If you have any suggestions or comments I would love to hear it!
