Productivity looks like Toadette

A short while ago, an online friend commented on how she’d love a mushroom Blythe hat that would look like Toadette’s head (pink with white dots). I was sure I could do it, since I had done one in red and white, but I got bored today, and umm, I ended up with this little friend:

Meet Toadette, a minor character from Nintendo’s Mario series. She first appeared in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as Toad’s (her male counterpart) racing partner. She has since appeared in multiple Mario games.

A total of 24 different pieces were crocheted and then pieced together. A total of 6 different colours were used in the making of Toadette (please note, she is lacking her feet, I liked the roly-poly aspect of her without her feet).

She has 5 white dots on her pink mushroom-like cap and 3 white dots at the end of each braid.

Toadette’s vest, crocheted in bright red and a golden yellow is fully removable from the main body of the toy.

Her facial features were added last, embroidered on with black hair to give her long oval-shaped eyes and small happy smile.

Toadette was crocheted without the use of a pattern and took approximately 10 hours, on and off, to complete.

She is constructed from 100% acrylic yarns from Red Heart Super Saver and Bernat Super Value. I used an H/8 (5.00mm) crochet hook. She is filled with 100% polyester stuffing (and some yarn scraps).
