Several years ago I made a few amigurumi Daleks, two for swaps and one for a friend, but I never made any for myself. A photo of one even made it onto Have I Got News For You when Tom Baker was the guest host! So, with the latest season of Doctor Who just starting, I decided that now was the perfect time to make myself a Dalek or two, and perfect the pattern while I was at it. I'm now really happy with all the details of the pattern, and have made a grey and black Dalek from the classic 1970s era of Who (that I grew up watching) and a bronze and gold one from the new series that I also love.
Before we start, these dolls are easy peasy lemon squeezy and should take a couple of hours at absolute most. If anyone can't make one I'll eat my hat (well, certainly provide you with more support because it will be my tutorial that's to blame). Please tell me if anything isn't clear or you have any questions. In my last post I emphasised the importance of the right materials and I'll repeat myself here. This is a really simple doll and it's beauty relies on good quality felt, stuffing and interlock.
Rubber duckies get all the attention -- but a washcloth duck can really make bath time fun for your baby. Terry cloth stuffed with sponge makes cleanup an adventure. Use our templates to make a whole family of ducks that are charming on land and delightfully squishy when immersed in water. Duck How-To 1.
