Dragon Quest IX Heal Slime cutie

I enjoy a good RPG video game. Dragon Quest is classic – I remember the first Dragon Quest being brutally hard as it was grinding slimes forever. I also remember spending way too much time in Dragon Quest 8 in the casino playing bingo >__<

When I got my manicured nails on Dragon Quest 9 I was ultra happy – I can customize my team and their looks. That’s just what a girl wants! Also I can be as vain as I want and not equip tacky gear, or ensure the gear matches.

During my Dragon Quest downtime, I started working on a healslime – my favourite monster in the game.

How’d I do it? I modified my Jelly Jellyfish pattern!
Available at my Etsy shop or through Ravelry (you do not need a Ravelry account).

I used the same design for the head (shapewise only). For arms, I created six Chain14, HDC (Half Double Crochet) in the second chain, HDC to the end. I also made two longer arms with 24 Chains. For the HDC, I inserted the hook into the “bump” ends of the chain to ensure smooth similar edging. I sewed the arms to form a circle and embroidered a mouth. The mouth, I found, was the hardest as I got all psycho perfectionist.

Cute, eh?

I just need to make the Dragon Quest sound effects to go with him.
