Oh, Captain, my baby Cap. (pt. iv)

Yesterday, I went to the dark side of Captain America…(all done in fun & games, I promise…I can like Iron Man. Sometimes.)

Today, we have Cap! joining in on the keeping-my-hands-busy-while-fangirling fun!

(see parts i, ii, and iii: Captain America arm warmers, Captain America earflap hat, Iron Man arm warmers)
(wow…WP changed the posting stuff overnight…)

And don’t I wish that Cap, but alas, I do not know Chris Evans personally. Anyway…

So last week I was sick in bed (long story) for the last half of the week. I wound up keeping busy by thinking of two stories while crocheting a baby Cap.

When I was searching for a hat pattern, I came across a pattern for making an amigurumi Captain America on Etsy. {pattern here} It was cute, so I bought it. It was pretty easy to make since I had taught myself last November when I made a Chewbacca…because I thought he was going to go, as in die, as per the old cannon, and it’s difficult to find a tiny Chewie that’s cute.

The only thing was this pattern was designed with the original Captain America in mind. The First Avenger with the red gloves and boots and the lighter color blue for his outfit. And while that was all fine and dandy, I wanted to make it Civil War Captain America with the suit that’s a cross between the Stealth one from Winter Soldier and the old one that was all red white and blue–at least to me it seems that way. So I googled pics of Captain America’s Civil War uniform, looked at the colors and styles of the boots, the wings, the stars, the shield…and I used that scheme as a guide in conjunction with the pattern. (I won’t post the pics I found in that search because of copyright rules.)

Sorry for the graphic scene…I didn’t realize you could see his stuffing there.

This is my baby Cap: Civil War edition

This is him meeting a felted Groot we got at SDCC 2015.
The smirk was inspired by the one Cap has in Winter Soldier when he’s in the glasses in the Apple store with Black Widow…TDF!

Baby Cap springs into action like a real hero!
(A bird was swooping too low and he dove for cover!)

He’s already at home on my desk.

Cap has been welcomed by everyone and is making friends fast.

That’s the Chewie I made last Novermber.

The original pattern called for felt stars and wings. I didn’t like the different textures like that, so I embroidered the stars and wings (like the ones on his Civil War helmet) with white yarn as well as following the pattern and embroidering the A. It’s more me to go all out and be totally different.

And this concludes part iv of my Civil War celebration. A few weeks from now, I will have seen the movie and I will be both in tears and smiles. Feels like I’ve been waiting forever for:

I do have other plans for making a few more Marvel related things, though I’m in no rush to complete them…but stay tuned…definitely more Marvel to come.
