This is my crochet Mr. Mint made for the Candyland contest over at
He is the newer Mr. Mint instead of the traditional one I'm used to seeing. But I liked his overalls so I went with this version. So far there isn't a lot of entries but it ends at the end of the month so I hope more people enter!
This is the image I used to make him. [link]
I wasnt sure about how his hair looked so I kind of winged it. The hat has white paint on it because I didn't want to dye a white hat red. If I had worked the stitches in they wouldn't have been at the right angle I needed. The edge of the hat is longer that it appears here, its the angle that makes it look shorter. The hat is removable. Hair is made from felt. Nose is actually yarn that I knotted and then glued on. :3 He has an ear! Aww.
Gloves are separate and he actually has 5 fingers on each glove. They are meant to be over sized like in the link. Shirt stripes are fabric marker, as well as the the part around his neck and socks. His pants are put onto him like real pants except his suspenders aren't removable. Buttons are made of felt and glued on.
Candy cane staff (not sure what it is in the link) and candy cane axe are pipe cleaners. I think the axe is brown in the link but oh well brown would just look strange with all this red and white. Sock ruffles were attached afterwords and sewn around the leg. The shoes actually have those laces sewn on.
I think its cute. It might be my favorite part besides the nose.
That's it hope you enjoy this one of a kind piece!
