Wall-e Pattern

Hi! How are you guys? It’s been a while since my last pattern, hehe. I’m sorry about that, but lately, I’m rarely crocheting. This doesn’t mean that I’m tired of crocheting or anything like that, crochet still my passion. What is happening is that I don’t have time to crochet at the moment, because I’m focusing in my career.

I’m sure that you all are very excited with the last Star Wars movie, right? :D Its is A-W-E-S-O-M-E !! I really would like to make a BB-8 pattern, but I can’t find any time right now ._. Maybe one day right?

Well, today’s pattern is Wall-e from the same name movie, which is one of my favorites. It’s a very lovely and well done movie. I tried to make a small pattern, with just the essencial details and not too complicated. However… in the end I think that the pattern is a bit complicated, it has too many pieces… *Sigh* I’m sorry guys >.<

Materials:

– Yellow yarn (I used Anne by Circulo, which is a Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi));
– Grey yarn (I used Anne by Circulo, which is a Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi));
– Black yarn (I used Anne by Circulo, which is a Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi));

Notes:

– I always do my crochet works using continuous rounds. I will let you know when you have to join rounds;
– Everytime I will do a crochet work, the first thing I do is take a look in the entirely pattern before start doing it, so, I can have an idea of how the pattern works. Well, I recommend you to do the same;
– For sewing the pieces together you will use the tapestry needle;

Recently, I’m having a hard time to answer all the questions sent to my email and the comments. I’m sorry that I’m not able to answer your doubts.

Assembly:

1. Make his body. Sew all the squares together, except the top, put the foam inside and sew the top square as explained before;

2. Sew the “Grey edge on the top of his body”:

2015091_2137201 20150913_215202

3. Sew the “Grey corners in “y” shape from the bottom”:

20150913_213704

4. Sew the “Grey corners from his back on the top”:

20150913_215202 20150913_215155

5. Using grey felt make two pieces like the one in this photo (they are placed each one in each side) and glue them to his body:

20150919_192203

6. Using grey felt make the front ractangle and glue it to his body:

20151014_1751

7. Put some fiberfill inside and glue the “Grey piece where his arms are attached” in the same place as shown in the photo:

20150919_135456

20150919_192203

8. Now, before sewing his arms, it’s necessary to insert a wire inside his body to keep his arms in place. To be able to insert the wire inside the cube I had to pierce with a sharp needle and then enlarge the small hole with a larger needle. After that I was able to insert the piece of wire:

Pierce the cube with a sharp needle

Enlarge the small hole with a larger needle

Insert the wire.

Bend the wire near his body and insert his arm through it.

9. To make his fingers sew two pieces together:

20150925_195916

Then, cut two pieces of wire (they need to be bigger than the fingers) and bend it to make it double.

20150925_195936

After that insert the wire inside his fingers

Finally, insert the wire inside his arm and sew his fingers:

10. Using a piece of white felt and black fabric paint make this detail of his arms:

listras

11. To make his legs first cut two pieces of a thick wire in the size of his legs and bend it in this shape (get an idea with the photos of the complete wall-e):

unite the loose tips with adesive tape

Sew two pieces of his leg with the wire inside:

12. Cut a piece of wire and try to shape it like in the photo bellow. This is going to be his neck.

First, insert the already shaped wire into his neck:

Then, insert the wire into his body:

After that, sew his neck to his body:

13. Now you are going to sew the “Grey cylinder between the eyes” to the top of his neck:

20151014_173445

14. To make his eyes I used EVA. I cut two pieces each one for each eye:

20151012_145605

Then, I cut two pieces of grey felt and glued into the eva.

20151012_145639

Finally, I painted his pupils and iris:

20151013_223759

    Hi Mia, you did an incredible job making Wall-e. I like that you used foam for his body… a lot easier than using foam board, which is the way I made mine. So much easier! You are so good at making patterns and so sweet to share them!
    cheers

  5. You are very talented, I love it !
