Lego Man

My brother's birthday is coming up, and he has always liked Legos.  When we were little, I used to help him find the particular size of Lego he was looking for in the great big bin we had, for whatever little project he was working on.  Today as an adult, he still has a love for legos and has a room filled with them.  And so I figure what else to make for him, besides a little Lego man figurine to sit amongst his Legos?

He's made of thread, I'm not sure on the number size, but it is commonly called "Knit Crocsheen" (not sure on the spelling)

I used cardboard to give him structure (this is from a gum box) and a few pennies in the bottom to weigh him down so he could stand alone.  I used scrap yarns to stuff inside the cardboard (I never waste a thing).

And for size reference, near a soda can.  That's all I have today, I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, but I think this project has inspired me to get back into crocheting.  :)  Happy Crocheting everyone!!


  1. I love it!!! He is also going to love it :) You did a great job and the penny/cardboard idea is super creative! :D

  2. Thanks! I'm glad he liked it :) Birthday gifts are always fun for me to make.
