- If you want to design your own amigurumi, I highly recommend Stacey Trock's class on Craftsy, Design Your Own Monster. I learned all the skills I used in this creation from that class.
- I crocheted the skirt as if I was attaching a ruffle, increasing in each stitch I picked up as I went around. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't have increased so much because I think it gave Buffy some pretty monsterous hips, so that's something to consider.
- For the hair, I used this tutorial on Stacey Trock's blog. Adding in the bangs was a little tricky and it's difficult to explain how I managed to do it, but I basically added the bangs like normal, then the first row of hair behind it like normal, then I went in and sort of picked up some yarn between the two rows and added in another line of hair to prevent a bald spot between the bangs and the hair line.
