Sailor Moon is an iconic anime to my generation because it was one of the few Japanese animated cartoons that were dubbed and played on national TV in North America in the 1990s.

Of course, there were a few other ones before that, but Japanese anime gained a lot of popularity in the 1990s and continued to grow its fandom among North Americans, adults, and children!

Other animes came before Sailor Moon (e.g. Gundam, and Dragonball Z), but I'd hate to sound sexist, but Sailor Moon was the anime for girls at the time.

But I mean, boys watched it too. Did I tell you that my husband is a bigger Sailor Moon fan than I am?

Earlier this year, I shared my crochet Sailor Moon Beanie that I made for my daughter. It's so lovely to watch them immerse themselves in what was once my childhood. It's like looking into a mirror and watching myself grow up.

I stopped watching anime soon after high school finished because I just didn't have as much time anymore between my studies. I haven't watched any new anime until when my brother introduced me toHimouto! Umaru-chan last year.

Stitches & Abbreviations


  • st/sts - stitch/stitches
  • ch - chain
  • slst - slip stitch
  • sc - single crochet (using the yarn under method)
  • sc inc - single crochet increase, 2 single crochets in one stitch
  • sc dec - single crochet decrease, single crochet 2 stitches together

Notes


  • I made this amigurumi doll using the "Yarn Under Single Crochet" technique. This technique makes the stitches tighter and appears more aligned.
  • I also used a half-color changing technique to achieve cleaner lines when changing colors from one row to another.
  • When working on the hairpiece, I used the underside of the piece as the "outside" or the side that is showing. The curls of the strands will follow a natural curl towards the face.
