My current WIP is a crocheted Dobby, from Harry Potter. I am not using a pattern, as none of the patterns I found online were really what I wanted. I just picked up some yarn and my crochet hook and started designing. I've been taking some notes as I go, so hopefully I will be able to recreate him if I want. Here is a front view of Dobby so far. He still needs some arms and some ears and probably a pillow case.
Here is the side view of Dobby. He is a little unsteady on his feet, hence the awkward pose. I stuffed his eyes so they would bulge a little.
