I’ve been meaning to make a post about this for a little while, but did not have the time until today. I finished the plushie version of Aino Heart!
I think she came out very cute! I used pipe cleaners to make her arms poseable, to give her neck some stability, and to make that ahoge heart on top of her head. Who knew pipe cleaners were so versatile? The project page on Ravelry for her is here.
One thing I regret is not writing down her pattern exactly. I wrote down some things, like, for example, her arms, legs, sleeves, and shirttails, because I wanted to make sure they were even… still, I’d like to adapt this pattern for other dolls of the same type. She’s just about the right porportions for anime / fighting game characters.
