Happy Crochet Pattern

Happy September!

This months Midi tier pattern is Happy from Snow White. I am now officially over half way through the dwarfs. Happy was a nice change because there are a few differences compared to the other dwarfs that I have made.

The pattern is written similar to Grumpy, Sleepy and Dopey but I had to make some adjustments. Happy has a more curvy body type so I widened the top of the thighs, belly and cheeks. The jacket does not have sleeves and he is wearing a long sleeve top. so there is a colour change for he arms. Also, Happy has an upright hat, similar to Dopey but I am happier with the shape. The last change is that the eyebrows are not black but white, so I opted to use the same fur fabric for the eyebrows that I used for the beard. Overall I am very happy with result.

As with the other dwarfs that I have made, with this Happy pattern there is not a lot of mixed media, he is predominantly crocheted. I just used felt for the eyes and mouth detail, as well as the fur fabric for the beard, which is enough mixed media to make the project stand out.

As I usually do, I glued the fingers to stop them from curling. However, I am hoping to improve my technique when it comes to crocheting fingers so I can eliminate the need to glue or starch the fingers. I plan to try it out this month as I crochet Bashful.

Happy measures approximately 8 inches tall (from foot to tip of the hat), and 6.5 inches wide (arms stretched out).
