Crochet Me: Smosh and Rhett and Link!

Hey guys! I haven’t posted a Crochet Me video here in a little while, so I figured I probably should. If Instagram or Twitter to @louiesloops with #crochetmelouie in the description and I’ll pick a different person each week to crochet!
you don’t know what “Crochet Me” is, it’s a series where I crochet a celebrity or Youtuber and make a time-lapse video of it with a mini stop motion animation at the end! I also crochet one viewer each week! If you guys want to be crocheted just post a picture on

Here’s a few of the past episodes where I made the Smosh Games team, and Rhett and Link! I hope you guys like them!

 
 

Watch me Crochet: Booker Dewitt from Bioshock Infinite (oh and win a free Pokeball)

Oh, and I figured, lets do another Pokemon giveaway while I’m at it. So again, there’s a new Watch me Crochet episode, new character added to the Etsy, and a giveaway.

All you have to do to win a free Pokeball is go to Instagram or the Booker Dewitt video and comment leaving your guess at who this Pokemon is!

Watch me Crochet: Assassin’s Creed

This past week a new Assassin’s Creed game was announced. I’m a pretty decent fan of the franchise, so I figured why not add Altair, from the first Assassin’s Creed game, to the group of pod people! And while I’m at it, why not make a video!

And even further, why not do another Pokemon giveaway!! So thats what I did, a new Watch me Crochet episode, new character added to the Etsy, and a giveaway!

All you have to do to win a free Pokeball is go to Instagram or the Assassin’s Creed video and comment leaving your guess at who this Pokemon is!
