Another Crochet Baby Yoda

Is anyone surprised? I didn’t think so. I was so done with making Baby Yodas. In fact, I was so done, I gave my personal and large doll to one of my sisters so I wouldn’t have to make another one.

But then, a few months had passed, and my daughter asked if I was willing to make a little one for her friend who wanted to buy one. Her friend has a grandson that loves the Mandalorian, and she thought he would love it. How could I say no to that!

I had to borrow my daughter’s doll so I could copy it. I know, I know, it’s my own design but, I never remember what I did.

So after I made her the doll, I realized I wanted my big Baby Yoda again, and I was ready to make it.

Why is it that no matter how hard I try, one foot or arm is always slightly larger than the other? Always! I do the exact same number of stitches and rounds, with the same ball of yarn, and one STILL comes out a different size.

Left one is smaller! Ugh!

Oh well, I’ve learned to live with it. I’m sure it has to do with my tension, even though I try to keep it the same. I guess that’s what makes it one of a kind. ☺️

I’m not done with him yet. He still needs his arms and legs so I let him borrow some plants from the garden in the meantime.

I kind of like him this way.

Then I let him borrow some wings.

Ignore the book, that’s an instagram thing.

His arms are done now and he feels just like a baby. He is very cuddly!

The extra weight from using a cut up sheet worked out well.

I’m thinking of doing something different with him. I don’t know what yet. I considered making his outfit somehow look like a Mandalorian. I also considered making him a vampire. He’d be cute with little vampire teeth and a black robe and cloak. Maybe I could make the ears black and red. Seeing the wings on him made me start thinking about making him his own fairy wings or angel wings, or maybe some kind of nature wings. We’ll see what happens. 😉

  1. Hee hee – he is so adorable, Yolanda, and I chuckled my way through the photos. He looks happy and cuddly, and it was fun to see his many transformations. I know he will be very loved. 🙂 Great idea to use bed-sheet stuffing; I’ll remember that if I ever run out of the polyfill!

    • Thank you for following his journey. 😀 I really like how he feels with the cloth stuffing. I got his ears done today. I tried something a little different to make them a little stiffer but still flexible. Working on his standard outfit now, although I’m changing that a little too. After that I’m planning on making him a vampire outfit. We’ll see how that goes! 🤣
